Dublin, Sept. 10 (NC)--Prince Rainier of Monaco along with Princess Grace and their two children at- tended Sunday Mass and breakfasted at St. Patrick's College, the big national seminary at nearby May- nooth. The Prince and his family were spending a three- week holiday at Carton House, a big estate which they rented, and one of whose entrances is almost opposite the main gate of the Maynooth Seminary. Welcomed to the seminary for the Mass by the rector and other officials, the family occupied spe- cial prie-dieux. Following the Mass, at which both the Prince and Princess received Holy Communion, they were given breakfast. Before leaving, they met the 13 Sisters of Charity who do the catering for the college. FIVE SUDANESE ORDAINED--Kampala, Ugan- da, (NC)RThe first five priests to be trained in the eight-year-old Catholic senior seminary in the Sudan have now been ordained by Bishop Ireneus Dud, Vicar Apostolic of Rumbek, the Sudan. They bring to 34 the number of Sudanese priests w among whom is Bishop Dud. The seminary, St. Paul's, is at Tore River in the Rumbek vicariate. According to information reach- ing here, it now has 100 seminarians in its eight- year course---10 of them in their fourth year of the- ology. They come from all Church jurisdictions in the Sudan. Before the opening of St. Paul's, Sudanese seminarians generally studied at Gulu, Uganda. TIME FOR FULL FREEDOMnBONN, Germany, Sept. 12 (NC)mCatholic leaders in Czechoslovakia have asked that country's Communist regime to re- store full freedom to the bishops, priests and lay people sentenced since the Red takeover in 1948 for alleged anti-state activity. According to the report of this action received here by the German Catholic news agency KNA, the request is timed with the government's trend away from Stalinist repression toward "socialist legality." Last month the Czechoslovakian supreme court announced its review of the cases against 481 per- sons tried in 1949 and 1954. Most of the persons ha- volved were adjudged "fully rehabilitated." The list was made up exclusively of persons who once held government or Communist party positions, however. No Church leaders were included. BROAD TRAINING URGED- TRIVANDRUM, India (NC)--Archbishop James R. Knox, Apostolic Internuncio to India, has urged religious orders to train their members in all spheres of human activity. The papal envoy, speaking at a reception given in his honor by the Carmelite friars here, recalled Pope Plus XII's appeal to Religious to in- tensify their formation both spiritually and intel- lectually. Archbishop Knox stressed the role religious communities can play in improvl,ng the spiritual con- dition of society. He voiced regret that despite the fact that India has over 20,000 Sisters, more than half the parishes in the country have no convent. 00You'll Be Glad Too- When You Buy Delicious SUNNY JIM AT ALL |ETTER1 Gronouski 18th Catholic In Cabinet WASHINGTON, Sept. 12 (NC) --When John S.

Built by Adolph Schmidt of Olympia Brewery fame in 1907 at a cost of a million and a half dol- lars, the New Washington was the immediate suc- cessor to the Washington, or Denny Hotel, built in 1888 at the top of Denny Hill. The Washington, a short-lived, but popular hos- telry, was unique in its inaccessibility. With no streets running to the hotel patrons were transported up the hill in a special cable car. Torn down shortly before Denny Hill was graded, the New Washington arose in 1907, its roof on the same level as the old Washington's basement due to the sluicing of Denny Hill. Opened in 1908, the New Washington boasted 14 stories and was in a wooded area considerably north of the main Seattle business area. In 1926 Adolph Sehmidt, recalling the building of the hotel admitted: "People thought we were crazy to build clear out at Second and Stewart," but Schmidt believed that the upper end of the business district would one day be the center of ..... activity and in 1928 he put an additional $75,000 worth of improvements into his hotel. In 1955 the hotel was purchased by the Doric Company and the Doric has operated it since. Washington Told Of Visit From Ti,o WASHINGTON -- Tito will make "an informal visit" to Washington and confer with President Kennedy October 17. The White House an- nounced that Tito will stop off at Washington en route to Mexico and the United Na- tions following a Latin Ameri- can tour. By J. J. Gilbert WASHINGTON, Sept. 12  As of now, this would seem to be the situation with regard to a visit to the United States by Marshal Tito of Yugoslavia: There is a good chance that he will come to the U.S. If he does, he may meet President Kennedy. Whether or not he would come to Washington is becoming a particularly inter- esting question. The Red dictator has wanted for a long time to come to this city and receive the red car- pet treatment accorded a chief of state. Previous attempts to bring this off have provoked such resounding protests that the efforts were abandoned. Now a new plan seems to be in the works. Earlier this year Tito began to reiterate his desire to be a visitor here. Then it was re- ported that Tito would visit Mexico, to repay a visit the president of that country paid to him. Some other Latin American places announced they might invite Tito for a visit. It was suggested that, while he was in this hemis- phere, it might be a good idea for him 'to visit the United States. This suggestion didn't stir too much enthusiasm, and Tito said he might, and later he said he expected to visit the United Nations General Assembly beginning Septem- ber 17. Then a news story was point- ed in this city saying President Kennedy had tentatively plan- ned to see Tito either at Hyan- nis Port, Mass., or at New- port, R.I., at the time of Tito's visit to the United Nations. The White House reacted to this by saying the President had no present plans to meet Tito this fall, but it would not comment on the possibility that Tito and the President might meet at the United Nations. Tito had said that he expects to visit the United Nations and that he hopes to see the President at that time. While none of this is nailed down, there is a belief here that something is in the wind. It is interesting that until just recently no mention was made of Tito coming to Washington. Tito was invited here, six or seven years ago, and the invitation was post- poned, but not canceled. What happened was that an Short course for college students: All you pay for an N BofC Special Checking Account is a dime a check. There is no other charge.

NATIONAL BANK' OF COMMERCE Serve Senior00Citizens - The lobby of the New Washington Hotel is a charming meeting spot. Like Facilities impressive number of Con In Other Areas gressmen said, in 1957, that they would boycott any joint session of Congress Tito might be invited to acldress. What Tito really wants is to come to Washington and to receive an official welcome. An address to a joint session of Congress is usually a part of such a wel- come. The 1957 congressional reaction so angered Tito that he put off the idea of coming at that time. Reports from Zagreb, Yugo- slavia, said that on September 7, Tito told U.S. Secretary of Commerce Luther H. Hedges that he would see him in Washington in October. Hedges was reported as replying: "Yes, we are looking for- ward to seeing you." Hedges was escorting Tito on a visit to the U.S. Pavi- lion at a world's fair in Zagreb, and Tito, reportedly, said the two would meet again in "five or six weeks." That is about the most defi- nite thing that has been said about a Tito visit to this coun- try, and especially regarding his coming to this city. Georgetown Has Theme for t75th Anniversary WASHINGTON (NC)- "Wis. dora and Discovery for a Dy- namic World" will be the theme of year-long observ- ances celebrating the 175th an- niversary of Georgetown Uni- versity, oldest Catholic institu- tion of higher education in the United States. The university said in an announcement that the ob- Servances of its feuding in 1789 will include "confer. ences, symposia, lectures and meetings of scholars and other eminent men to con- sider and illuminate the key ideas, issues and opportuni- ties of our time." The anniversary celebration will begin with a Mass of the Holy Spirit September 26 on the university's campus here and will end with a convoca- tion, December 3, 1964, mark. ing the 149th anniversary of the death in 1815 of Georgetown's founder, Archbishop John Car- roll of Baltimore. Are In Plans (Continued from Page 1) The Archbishop pointed out that there are in the State of Washington about 250,000 per- sons past the retirement age of 64. "Many of these face the fu- ture with some fear and trepi- dation," he said. Archbishop Connolly contin- ued: "The problems of our aged in this regard in many instances have come dangerously close to making them second-class citi- zens. Financial worries of one type or another frequently be- set them. After busy lives, their status suddenly changes, and they often suffer a loss of pow- er, income and prestige. Many of them feel unwanted and lone- ly, particularly if they have not trained lhemselves to face old age with any degree of equa- nimity. "The individuality of every person of advanced years, his hopes, aspirations and capaci- ties, should be preserved. He should be enabled to live in maximum independence. He should not be made to suffer rejection and isolation be- cause of his age. He should be given the opportunity of rea- lizing his obligation of par- ticipating in the social and community projects that ap- peal to him. "It is for such as these that the Church must provide care, s h e t t e r and companionship. They must be given a wider, more serene outlook on life as a whole. Some point must be given to their existence. Old age is not necessarily a time of de- cay and deterioration. The ac- quisition of the New Washing- ton Hotel will aid the Archdio- cese of Seattle in no small man- ner in discharging its obliga- tions toward our senior citi- zens. "As circumstances warrant, and as finances permit, similar facilities will be acquired or es- tablished in other areas throughout the Archdiocese." Msgr. Higgins Protests Housing Discrimination (Continued from Page 1) adopted at a Chicago meeting of its board of directors a pol. icy statement on property rights. Msgr. Higgins said that the statement held that property owners have the right to own and enjoy their property ac- cording to their own dictates and the right to occupy and dis- pose of it without government interference. "To call a spade a spade, this means that, in NAREB's opinion, property owners should have the legal right to discrim. inate against Negroes," he said. The philosophy behind t h i s statement and another NAREB declaration that a realtor doesn't have the obligation to change the mind of an owner who objects to selling to a Ne- of housing is most dishearten- ing. "It means, among other things, that the social teaching of the churches has had prac- tically no influence in the real estate profession," he said. Of Catholic thought on this subject, he said: "If a property owner's badly formed conscience tells him that he can discriminate against Ne- groes in the sale or rental of his property then Catholic so- cial teaching would say that the government has the right and may even have the duty to in- tervene, in defense of the Ne. gro's right to decent housing, by enacting an 'open occupancy' law." Catholic real estate agents, he said, ought to take time out to check the NAREB's state- ments with the social encycli. gro is "almost a caricature of cals of the Popes on the same 19th-century laissez faire indi- subject. vidualism," Msgr. H i g g i n s charged. "The fact that such an im- portant organization still of- ficially subscribes to this phi- losophy and is still appealing to it as a justification for ra- cial discrimination in the field "They will find that the en- cyclicals flatly reject the notion that anyone has the right to 'occupy and dispose of property without government interfer- ence in accordance with the dic- tates of his conscience,' " he said.

Furey, at his enthronement here as the first Coadjutor Bishop of San Diego, pledged "to use all the energies at my command for the continued spiritual and temporal growth" of the abounding diocese. James Francis Cardinal Mc- Intyre, Archbishop of Los An- geles, officiated at the en- thronement in the Chapel of the Immaculate on the campus of the University of San Diego. Among the prelates present were the Most Reverend Thomas A. Connolly, Arch- bishop of Seattle, and the Most Rev. Thomas E. Gill, auxiliary Bishop of Seattle. Arehbishop John J. Kroi of Philadelphia, where Bishop Furry served as Auxiliary Bishop since 1960, and Auxi- liary Bishop Gerald V. Me- Devitt of Philadephia at- tended. Bishop Furey was feted at a luncheon in the Hotel del Coronado following the church ceremonies and at an evening reception in the Atcala Bowl on the university campus. Delegate Installs Bishop Kocisko PASSAIC, N.J., Sept. 10 (NC) --Eastern and Latin Rite Bish- ops gathered here for the en- thronement of Bishop Stephen J. Kocisko as head of the newly created Byzantine Rite Eparchy of Passaic. Archbishop Egidio Vagnozzi, Apostolic Delegate to the Unit- ed States, installed September 10 Bishop Koeisko in St. Mich- ael's cathedral in an Eastern Rite ceremony. The distinctive ceremony be- gan when Archbishop Vagnozzi and Bishop Kocisko were met at the door of the cathedral by priests who presented them with bread and salt, a tradi- tional greeting from the Old Testament. The congregation took an active part in the enthrone- ment, singing "Ad Multos Annos" (may he live many years) and repeating three times the word, "Axles" (he is worthy), twice after Bish- op Koeisko was presented the crozier, symbolic of his spiritual jurisdiction. Minneapolis-born Bishop Ko- cisko has been serving since 1956 as Auxiliary Bishop of the Pittsburgh eparchy. Ordained in Rome in 1941, he has held pastoral and teaching assign- ments in Detroit, Lyndora, Pa., and Pittsburgh. Living quarters available in the New Washington. Cardinal Bea Sees Signs Optimistic For Unity TRENT, Italy, Sept. 9 (Radio, NC) n Augustin Cardinal Bea, S.J., said here that the forces fav- oring Christian unity are strong enough to warrant con- fidence in the results of efforts toward unity. The Cardinal, President of the Vatican Secretariat for Pro- moting Christian Unity, spoke September 4 while he was pre- siding over the third session of the International Congress' of Historians here. The con- gress met to commemorate the fourth centenary of the closing of the Council of Trent. Speakers on the day's pro- gram we r e Prof. Thomas Parker of Oxford University, England, an Anglican, and Prof. Peter Meinhold of Kiel University, Germany, a Luth- eran. Parker, speaking on "The Tridentine Reform Compared with the Anglican Reform," noted that the word "reform" has various meanings which should be kept clear. In one sense, he said, it refers to the Protestant movement in oppo- sition to Catholicism. In other senses, he stated, it may dis- tinguish doctrinal reform from administrative reform. Meinhold spoke on "Pro- testants at Trent." He stress- ed the fact that the second period of the Council of Trent, often passed over by historians, was particularly important because it was the only period of the council at which Protestant orators and theorists were represented. He noted that new forces which were truly and properly religious had come to maturity on both Catholic and Protes- tant sides at Trent, but that they were so confused by tical influences that it was im- possible for them to achieve a mutual understanding. He said it might be possible to recover these forces. Commenting on this point, Cardinal Bea said: "The forces are sufficiently strong and pure today to al- low greater confidence in their results. From a deeper historical vision of those events (at Trent) something may be drawn to contribute to mutual understanding." Another speaker, Roy. Hu- bert Jedin, examined debates on the council over one of the outstanding Tridentine r e - forms, making it obligatory for a bishop to live in his diocese. Father Jedin, a professor the University of Bonn and author of a widely circulated book on councils of the Church, recounted the "struggle" at Trent during 1562 over the ob- ligation of a bishop to reside where he ruled. He said inten- s-ity of the dispute was ex- plained by the varying con- cepts of the Church itself by council Fathers. The result, he said, was a form of compromise. It pre- sented the obligation of bishops to live in their dio- cese simply as a pastoral duty, not as implying any limitation of the pontifical jurisdiction. A paper on the institution of the seminary system of train-I ing priests was presented by "" Rev. James A. O'Donohoe of the Boston archdiocesan, sem- inary. Creation of a well edu- cated clergy, he said, stands among the most notable achievements of the Cotincil of Trent.
