+ IO--THE PROGRESS i FHday, Sept 21, 1962 Bishops Fear For Morals Of Country IJJHERE IS LE GOFF? : O MANY times we look for something so hard S that we can&apos;t find it when it is right in front of us. One such case, I believe, is a case of the many Indian Missions in the north of our continent. I am sure many people will be just as surprised as I was to learn how many missionaries are working among the Indiaris of the north, and working under very difficult circumstances and conditions. One such missionary is Father Victor LeCalvez, O.M.I., who since 1936 has labored among the Indian Missions of Al- berta in Canada. In fact, Father had a very interesting career because it seems that every tribe he has gone to, he had to learn a new language, or several new languages without the benefit of any books, dictionaries or grammars. Before he could do any work among them, he had to write the books himself. The majority of the Indians are supposed to be Catholic in ] ,the area in which Father LeCalvez works, which is St. Raphael's mission at LeGoff, yet they do not have much of the necessary i knowledge of their Faith to enable them to live up to it to the degree in which they should. Not only is it difficult to bring the Faith to these people when you do not have the buildings, facili- ties, nor priests, sisters or lay teachers to give them these neces- sary instructions, but then further hardships are added due to the climate and the very rugged country that exists here in the ! Indian Missions. Besides his main mission, Father has three small missions and one other large mission that he takes care of all by himself, Society for The Propagation of the Faith Rev. Stephen Szeman, Archdiocesan Director 907 Terry Avenue, Seattle 4--MA. 2-8880 . St. Williams, St. Elizabeth, Holy Rosary, St. Rita and St. Leo. i  It's true that the Indian missions are not spread out too far--M, 15, 20, or 35 miles apart, yet those are quite large distances when you realize the poor roads and the poor methods of transportation that exist there. Although Father LeCalvez must feel at times that we have all forgotten him, and just sort of abandoned him up in the :. mountains, I am sure that he realizes that we would like to do ::, everything we can to help him. You can imagine how wonderful it is for him to receive mail or an occasional visit from one of his fellow priests or his Bishop. He describes these things at length when he sends down his regular letter to us. That is why we like to take away one of his bothersome worries; how to -< get enough money to keep his little house and school going and get around to his missions. We are sure that if enough people were interested in Father .... and would write to this office we could "adopt" Father for our :< very own Indian Missionary. Wouldn't it be nice to really know someone who is able to use a few cents or dollars in sacrifices ' - to carry out such wonderful work among our neighbors. If you ere at all interested in helping us carry on this private little mis- sion with Father LeCalvez, please write and let us know. Honor Roll HOLY CHILDHOOD COngratulations to the many Schools of the Archdiocese that take such an active part in the Holy Childhood Program by ransoming pagan babies.

Holy Cross School, Tacoma -- S babies. When did you ransom a pagan baby last? BY JOHN A. GREAVES LONDON, Sept. 19 (NC) -- The Catholic Bishops have warned England and Wales that a serious deterioration in moral standards is threatening to drag the nation into decline. They put the blame for this widespread immorality on a breakdown of family life. They urged Catholics to pro- test more vigorously in order to raise moral standards in books, newspapers, movies and broadcasting, and also said they depended upon non-Catho- lics to enter the lists against moral laxity. The Hierarchy's statement followed its annual meeting. It said postwar prosperity had been accompanied by a "grave lowering in moral stan- dards," with many marriages broken, divorce widespread, premarital relations condoned, an alarming rise of illegitimate births and daily criminal vio- lence and robbery. "All these are symptoms of grave social disorder," the Bishops asserted. "Of what avail will it be to our country if its higher standard of living is to be ae- companied by a moral de- aline? There is no doubt many of the evils we deplore can be traced to a breakdown of family life." Among the causes of this breakdown they listed infidelity in marriage, widespread con- traception, bad housing, exces- sive rents, and irresponsible marriages of the very young. They reminded parents of their duty to shield children from temptations such as bad companions, indecent reading, and sordid entertainment. Parents must also inform children suitably about sex, the Bishops said. Sex instruc- tion, they added, must never be given by teachers to groups of children. The Bishops also criticized mothers who take jobs to ob- tain luxuries. They castigated abuses in modern communications media. "We must deeply deplore the fact that many of the most powerful means of influencing character are being used today in an irresponsible manner." they said. "All these combine to make it increasingly difficult for the young to avoid moral degrada- tion. On television screens, in films and on the radio, stand- ards of decency are frequently violated. Plays and shows are often morally harmful and cal- culated to arouse sensual pas- sion. Much of the reading mat- ter available to the young is likewise dangerous. "There is no doubt that many temptations could be avoided if there were a striet- er code of decency in films and television, greater mod- esty in dress and behavior, and more reticence in speak- ing and writing." Catholics must use "every lawful means" to protect Chris- tian traditions and truths, the Bishop said. Start Firs Swiss Mosque ZURICH, Switzerland (NC) -- Honors On Retirement RETIRING Chief of Air Force chaplains, Msgr. (Maj. Gem) Terrence P. Finnegan (right), receives the Distin- guished Service Medal from Air Force Chief of Staff Gen- eral Curtis E. LeMay. Msgr. Finnegan received the award for his leadership in the significant advancement of the moral and religious program of the Air Force. A native of Norwich, Conn., he joined the military service in 1938 and served several overseas tours of duty. He was awarded the Bronze Star for service on Guadalcanal in World War II. Archbishop Lauds City's Integration ATLANTA, Ga., Sept. 19 (NC) -- Archbishop Paul J. Hallinan has commended students, parents, teachers, priests and public officials for making pos- sible the peaceful integration of Atlanta archdiocesan Catholic schools. With the start of the school year, 17 Negro students entered six Catholic schools in the arch- diocese--four in the Atlanta area, one in Marietta and one in Athens. Integration went off without incident. Archbishop Hallinan named the following schools as those which integrated: St. Joseph's and Marist High Schools and Immaculate Conception Ele- mentary School, Atlanta; St. John the Evangelist School, Hapeville; St. Joseph's School, Marietta, and St. Joseph's School, Athens. In the archdio- cese are 18 elementary and five high schools. Archbishop Hallinan did not make public the names of the Negro students involved. He said the names "are not being publicized because they are attending school not as Negroes but as American Catholic chil- dren." "The first purpose of our Catholic schools is a good edueation. In this framework, all children, white and Negro, will win acceptance by hard work and good conduct," he said in a statement. "Our public officials have been wise and helpful. I wish every city in our beloved South had leadership of their caliber and dedication." U.S. Catholic Group Aids Mexicans MONTEFALCO, Mexico (NC) --A financial boost from a U.S. Catholic organization is helping young Mexican farmers to in- crease their agricultural know- how. The Cincinnati Archdiocesan Council of Catholic Men is pro- viding scholarship help that en- ables the farmers to take a three-month training course at the El Penon Training Center here. The cost of each scholarship ts $85, and the self-help project is carried out with the approval of Catholic Relief Services -- National Catholic Welfare Conference. From 35 to 40 farmers, 16 to 25 years of age, are selected from different regions of Mex- ico to receive training at the center in new agricultural methods. Three such courses are held annually. The National Commission for Rural Prog- ress, directed by laymen, is responsible for the program, which has been approved by the Mexican hierarchy.
