We are pleased once again to recommend to your favorable consideration and gen- erous cooperation the appeal of the United Good Neighbors. This campaign by virtue of its massive representation of human need, has a special claim upon every resident of this County. We who, under the inspiration of our Divinely revealed faith, acknowledge the prime importance of fraternal charity and the inescapable responsibility for. the welfare of our unfortunate brother, should see in this appeal the invitation of the sweet mercy of Our Divine Saviour Himself. It is not human agents but Our Diviae Lord Who solicits this aid to our fel- low man. He commands it in His name and for His sake. I would remind all, particularly those among the faithful who are newcomers to this community, that the United Good Neighbors campaign is the principal source of support of several of our own agencies which provide for dependent children. We have a special right and duty to sustain the hand that dis- tributes assistance in our own name. With every best wish and blessing, I am Faithfully yours in Christ, Archbishop of Seattle September 21. 1962 N,B.

She also is in charge of the debat- Guiana sat on the edge of her chair as if anxious to be done with the inevitable in- terview. Desiree Searwar, senior French mistress at St. R o s e High School in Georgetown, British Guiana, is an electric little person who in 26 years has crowded a lifetime of Cath- olic action. Ia this country as a partici- DESIREE SEARWAR pant in the Foreign Leaders Program of the Office of Cul- tural Exchange of the Depart- ment of State, Desiree is the guest of the Archdiocesan Coun- cil of Catholic Women while in Seattle. Born in Georgetown, she at- tended the high school at which she now teaches, later attend- ed the Univel;sity of London and Queen Mai'y University College where she obtained her bachelor's degree in 1958. From there she went to Maria As- sumpta College to get her teaching certificate. Returning to Georgetown, De- siree began teaching at her alma mater, a private school for girls operated by the Ur- suline Sisters. St. Rose's has an enrollment of 400 and oper- ates on private funds and a small grant from the govern- ment. Besides teaching French, De- ing society and creative danc- ing. As if this wasn't enough, Desiree is a eaneert pianist. She received first place in the pianoforte solo at the regional music festival in the United Kingdom. But practice time is hard to find these days and Desiree plays only to raise money for her prime interest --her Catholic youth dub. This group, almost 1,000 strong now, consists of Catholic teenagers unable to attend Catholic schools. With only three Catholic high school and 12 grade echools in the area, British Guiana is lacking in Catholic schools sufficient even for the tiny Catholic population it supports. With this in mind Miss Sear- war organized with the help of several priests her own "Con- fraternity of Christian Doc- trine" stressing solely the re- ligious education of teenagers. While in Seattle, she was de- lighted to talk with Rev. John Doherty, Archdiocesan Director of the CCD program. "The childrer, are mar- velous apostles," Desiree em- phasized. "There is no disci- pline problem and little ju- venile delinquency. It makes me sad here in the States to see disrespectful children. On buses they don't stand for their elders and they fuss when there isn't a place for them. No, our problem isn't discipline. Ours is m u e h greater, however. It is Com- munism," but Desiree de- clined to comment any fur- ther on the political problems of her country. Desiree lives at home with her parents and laughingly de- scribes herself as "a parasite." "I live at home and my salary goes into my youth club. Even my brothers and sisters help support the club." In the U.S. since July, Miss Searwar goes from Seattle to Los Angeles, the Grand Can- yon, Iowa and then to Wash- ington, D.C., where she will fly back to British Guiana, Lay Retreat Schedule The Palisades Visitation Retreat (Men's Retreat House) (Women's Retreat House) St. Patrick, Tacoma St. Theresa, Dash Point St. Peter, Suqurmish Blessed Sacrament, Seattle Chancellor Club, Seattle Sacred Heart, Seattle / September 28 - 30 St. Joseph, Lynden St. Michael, Snohomish October 5 - 7 St. Margaret Mary, McKenna Immaculate Conception, Mt.

The patients said that if these Sisters are sent away, Ceylon- ese nurses appointed in their places might mistreat them. Meanwhile, the chairman of the Jaffna Hospital Committee, Dr. V. T. Pasupati, said that the proposal to terminate the services of Sisters working in the Jaffna Hospital by August, 1963, will result in extreme hardship to patients. C e y I o n's Department of Health has ruled that all nurs- ing Sisters will be barred by February, 1964, from work- ing in government hospital. There are about 200 local and foreign nursing Sisters in the various hospitals in Cey- lon. At the Hendale and Man- tivu leprosy hospitals, Sisters form the majority of the nurs- ing staff.

Discussion Club District Meets Scheduled Some 50 persons were present for the CCD Discussion Club district meeting held Wednes- day night in a schoolroom at St. James Cathedral School and a good turnout was present in Tacoma last night. The Rev. John Doherty, Arch- diocesan CCD director, and Rev. James Gandrau, editor of The Progress, were gratified at the excellent turnouts. The meetings have been ar- ranged for various districts of the Archdiocese and are aimed at priest directors, Discussion Club chairmen, individual club chairmen, leaders and there in- terested in the Club program. Other meetings will be held tonight at Immaculate Concep- tion School, Mount Vernon, at 7:30 p.m.; Monday night, Sept. 24 at 7:30 p.m., St. Michael School, Olympia, for Olympia and Grays Harbor area; and Tuesday, Sept. 25, at 7:30 p.m. at St. Rose School, Longview, for southern parishes. By JOSEPH FORTE St. Peter's Parish Over three years ago nay wife and I were in- vited to join a discussion club sponsored by the CCD of St. Peter's Par- ish. At first we hesitated be- cause frankly we thought that to he a member of a group you had to have a complete and thorough knowledge of y o u r Faith in order to discuss it in- telligently with other members of the group. However, there comes a time in the life of every Catholic when he desires to know more about his holy Faith and we found that thru discussion clubs we were able to start accomplishing this end. Since religion poses a greater challenge today than ever before we became in- formed in greater detail and with firmer certainty about many of the truths of our Faith, As the meetings pro- gressed we found ourselves less afraid to express our views. The limited size, inti- mate nature, and informality of a small group makes even the most timid person prae- flee free expression of thought. During this first year our club concentrated on the pro- blems of parents with young children--all the complex pro- blems of raising children in the world today. Through group discussion we found that all the problems we thought pecu- liar to our own family were not ours alone but were com- mon to all. By bringing them into the open and discussing frankly among ourselves we found how others in the group had dealt with these problems and found a solution to many of them based on a deeper knowledge of our Catholic re- ligion. We found ourselves buy- ing more good books and Cath- olic magazines in our desire to know more and more. We were encouraged and became more enthusiastic after each meet- ing. In my own family a problem in finding the proper time and place to gather the 6 members together to say the family Rosary. After discussing this problem with the other group members it was suggested that we follow the routine that one of them had followed: say the Rosary after the evening meal before anyone was allowed to leave the table. This was over three years ago and rarely have we missed an evening without the family Rosary. Alternating leaders each night has increased interest and competition among three JOSEPH FORTE Meets Challe,nqe of Reliqion With Wife young boys in remembering the different mysteries for each day of the week. Each jealously guards his turn. We have formed in our own family group a "discussion club" so to speak by explain- ing and discussing the mean- ings of the different myster- ies. The second year was devoted to "What Every Catholic Should Know." This second year helped to put our religion to work. The discussion method provoked thought and promot- ed clear expression m the layman's language by all of the members, each of whom had an intense interest and a sincere desire to learn more about our Faith. We realiz- ed the value of group discus- sion and activity and were shown how we were more ef- fective when we worked, studied, and discussed as a group. We became stronger in our Faith and less afraid to discuss with other, non-Cath- olics and less faithful Catholics, the importance of our Faith. We were able to share with others our new found know- ledge and thus become "mis- sionary" in our associations with others. The club stimulated religious research because many points under discussion had to be proved to the satisfaction of all and our one non-Catholic member could quote from the Bible with surprising facility and accuracy. Problems for which we could not find an ac- curate answer were referred to our Spiritual Advisor through the secretary who either brought back the answer at the next meeting or invited Father to the next meeting to bring his answer and elaborate on it in person. Our study that year of the coming Ecumenical Council made possible first of all the correct pronunciation of this new and strange word. We studied p a s t councils, why they were held, what was the purpose, and the accom- plishments of the different Councils. Now that the time for the first session of the present Council is fast ap- proaching we will be in a position to better understand the deliberations to a greater degree. In today's world which places greater and greater emphasis on education we became aware more and more of our need to further our knowledge of our Faith and discussion clubs provided this means for the busy persons of today. We may not h a v e a "professional" knowledge of our religion but we llave a layman's compre- hension. Truly for us, being members of a discussion club has been our "seminary." 'Discipline Rich In Catholic Scientists' (EDITOR'S NOTE: The Church has always been the patron of arts and science. With the modern emphasis on technical science, it is well to recall Catholics who have made significant con- tributions in the field el natural science throughout history, This is the ninth in a series.) By JOHN J. ECKHART We have ranged chron- ologically in this series from Albertus Magnus of the 13th Century to Marston Morse who this day is on the faculty of the Institute of Ad- vanced Studies at Princeton. We had hoped by this method to indicate without fear of con- tradiction that  ere has never been, and can never be, any reason for any opposition be- tween man the Catholic and man the Scientist. In each in- stance we have observed an individual. Today we explore a discipline, so rich in Catholic scientists and so obvious of God's creative hand that time excludes the possibility of dis- cussing the men on an indi- vidual basis. Who has not said, or heard it said, while looking at the billions of stars in our great spiral nebulosity and our neighboring nebulae, how in- significant is man beneath all of this might and majesty? It is here, as in the study of See Forbids Distortion In Church Art P A D E R B O R N, Germany. (NC) -- Distorted images and extreme abstraction have been banned in church art by the Paderborn archdiocese. The diocese, in a supplement to regulations published in 1951 and 1961 on "painting, plastics and applied art in the service of the Church", said that "ab- straction in art must never lead to misrepresentation or distor- tion of the human image." The norms, approved by Archbishop Lorenz Jaeger of Paderborn, said "It must be remembered that human be- ings were created in the image of God, and that it is a dishonor to God if man distorts that image. the atom, that the scientist must recognize the work of God, or he must, in the face ot reason and evidence, deny any existence of God. There are many famous astron- omers who have looked into the heavens and seen God. Regiomantanus, the greatest astronomer Europe produced up to the 15th century, was Bishop of Ratisbon and tutor of Copernicus. Copernicus him- self, one of the stellar names in a starry field, discovered that the sun is the center of His relationshipwiththe Church has unfortunately been misunderstood and allowed to become a "cause celebre" amongst those who would de- mean the Church and her love of truth. Gassendi, a priest of the 17th century, studied comets and dissipated the superstious fear of them. He also was first to observe the transit of Mercury across the face of the sun. The Jesuit Secchi is one of the greatest authorities on the sun, and is so recognized by the I our motion and that the. planets revolve about it and on their axis. This same Copernicus was a priest. Nicholas of Cusa, an- other observer and theorizer of the astronomical geometry, was a Cardinal. Galileo, the father of experi- mental science, the inventor of the telescope, microscope, pen- dulum and the creator of dy- namics, was a sincere Catholic. esoteric world of astronomia. The asteroid Ceres was first discovered by Piazzi, a monk who prepared the first standard catalogue of 7646 stars. The Abbe de Laeaille erected an observatory at Cape Town where a catalogue of 10200 stars was made from souther observations. Jean Pieard, an- other French clergyman and ec- clesiastic, made the first ac- curate measurement of a de- gree of the meridian, which measurement enabled Newton to establish his law of univer- sal gravitation. Leverrier, discoverer of Neptune, one of our "far out cousins," is called a giant of modern astronomy. He was a devout and humble eommunl- cant of Holy Mother Church. The list goes on before it gets shorter. De Vieo and Grimaldi were Jesuits. The llst of il- lustrious Catholics who stand lout under the heavens in- eludes Cassini, Boscovieh, Maraldi, Castelli, Bianchini, Perry, Denza, and on and on. I do not suggest that such a list be memorized to quickly silence those who still dredge up the old Galileo affair, but it could do no harm to hope that such a list of Catholic scientists, in such a field as astronomy, m i g h t strengthen our growing conviction that where men search for truth there is the guardian of truth, the Catholic Church.

If collective bargaining fails, it may be necessary for govern- ment to substitute some form of compulsory arbitration, Father Quirk said in a TV ad- drc: . Ameriean unions have pro- vided a necessary counter- power bloc in an American economy characterized by power blocs, he said. The "magnificent back- ground" of American union, is often obscured in the public mind while the "arrogant pic- ture of a Hoffa" and a few other dictatorial union leaders looms large, Father Quirk de- clared. Unlike some of the socialist- oriented unions in Great Brit- ain and cn the European con- tinent, American unions have always considered themselves integral parts of enterprise capitalism, Father Quirk said. Free enterprise, he said, no longer exists in this country.
