Political observers willing to hazard a guess feel that Frei has an edge but a very ;light one at best. Among factors making it difficult to predict the out- come is the great increase in number of voters. In the 1958 presidential election, 1,300,000 people voted. This time 2,900,000 are registered and about 2,400,000 are expected to east ballots. The majority of the new voters are women. In the capital city of Santiago, more women than men ave registered. Generally it is thought that Chilean women will not vote for a marxist ndidate. In all, 1,550,000 en and 1,350,000 women e registered. Another factor is the third candidate, Julio Duran, a The Jubilarlan, symbolizing hit coat-of.arms, "Justice and Peace," gives the "Kiss of Peace" at Mass of Thanksgiving. Vigor of Archdiocese ly Fred Cordova A solemn pontifical Mass of thanksgiving, a colorful array of purple, laudatory "avalanches of verbiage," multitudes of devoted peo- ple and a round of social functions--both public and private--make up most of the highlights of the Silver Episcopal Jubilee of the Most Reverend Thomas A. Connolly, Archbishop of Se- attle, whose observance of his consecration as a bishop is being celebrated this week in the Archdiocese. There is still more to come. The public reception, being sponsored by lay or- ganizations in the Archdio- cese, will be held from 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 30, in the Grand Ballroom of the Olympic Hotel. The four-day five-part ob- servance began Saturday with a reception in Blanchet High School for Sisters, availing them the opportuni- ty to congratulate Archbish- op Connolly. The pontifical Mass was sung Wednesday in St. James Cathedral by the Archbishop and actually set the significant tone to the celebration. "Where the bishop is, there is the Church," said the Most Reverend John J. Seanlan, Auxiliary Bishop of Honolulu, in his sermon during the Mass. "This is an appropriate place and setting and a fitting occasion in which to view the position and office of the Bishop in the Church." Telling Of the divine com- mission "to teach, to rule and to sanctify mankind," Bishop Scanlan said of his former pastor at San Fran- cisco's Mission Dolores: "... Let us say he has spurred achievements. He has judged correctly the loyalty, the spirit of sacri- fice and the capacity for achievement o f priests and people. What you have accomplished under his leadership bears tes- timony to the accuracy of his judgment and the forcefulness of his initia- tive." Indeed, the testimony of achievement was seen by distinguished visitors not only in the visible "brick and mortar" apostolate of glistening new churches, parish plants and institu- tions but in the faith of the faithful. This was exemplified by the zeal and fervor of the congregation, participating uniformly and vocally throughout "the pontifical Mass in the responses, g,,i: Forde Photo By Bill Ha;den senator from the Radical party. Though he has no chance of winning, Duran will probably receive about 300,000 of the Radical par- y's 400,000 votes. Where the ther 100,000 votes will go is extremely important. In the 1958 election President Jorge Alessandri defeated Dr. Allende by only 33,000 votes. The great majority of Chilean voters are not O committed to any party.

The reason is that Mexico's anti-clerical laws forbid the wearing of clerical garb in public. Sister Coneepta, trans. ferred here on short no. rice from the School of Madelein i n Berkeley, Calif., had cut her hair short for summer com- fort under her veil, and it was not long enough to be styled. Sister Concepta has been named regional superior of the Dominican Sisters of the Congregation of the Queen of the Holy Rosary, and will make her headquarters at the Instituto Lacordaire in Mexico City. chants and hymns of the Sa- cred Liturgy in the Cathe- dral.

Connolly, Archbishop of Se- attle, a three-day institute on the sacred liturgy will be held at St. Thomas Semi- nary, Kenmore, Monday to Wednesday, Aug. 31-Sept. 3. All Archdiocesan priests and representatives from all religious communities of priests active within the Archdiocese will attend. Purpose of the institute, Archbishop Connolly said, will be "to prepare the lo- cal clergy both for the im- mediate vernacular reforms of the missal and ritual and for those other liturgical reforms which may certain- ly be expected over the months and years ahead, and also to insure uniform- ity of liturgical practices throughout t h e Archdio- cese." Conferences a n d work- shops :during the institute will be conducted by Very ,Rev. Paul P. Purta, S.S., rector of St. Patrick's Semi- nary, Menlo Park, Calif., and John B. Mannion, exec- utive secretary of the Litur- gical Conference, Washing- ton, D.C. Father Purta, formerly on the faculty at St. Thom- as Seminary, served as chairman of the Seattle Archdiocesan Commission on Sacred Music and Lit- urgy. Mannion has been an out- standing lay leader in the liturgical revival within the United States for several years. Specific topics to be dis- ussed include: "Liturgy and the Re- newal of the Church," "Constitution on the Sac- red Liturgy: a Pastoral and Canonical Commen- tary," "Role of the Cele- brant at Mass," "Liturgi- cal Sermon," "Mass as the Christian Meal," "Paschal Mystery," "Problems of Participa- tion," "Sacraments Other than the Eucharist" and "Popular Devotions and the Liturgy." Continued emphasis throughout the institute will be given to the practical problems of the new Latin- English rite of the Mass which is to come into gen- eral usage later this fall.
