(NC) -- A test ease challenging the constitutionality of tax-paid bus rides for non-public school students in Minnesota has been filed in the Minnesota Seventh District Judicial Court. Target of the suit is a law enacted ear- lier this year by the state legislature auth- orizing Cold Spring-St. Nicholas school dis- iCt 2065 to levy taxes to pay for bus nsport of non-public school pupils who "live in the district. At the time of its enactment the meas- ure was regarded as providing the basis for a legal test of the bus ride issue. The plaintiffs in the case -- a Lutheran layman and a Catholic layman--are repre- sented by state Sen. Robert R. Dunlap, chairman of the Senate Education Com- ittee. Officials of the school district are rep- resented by state Sen. Gordon Rosenmeier. The case is expected to be settled ul- timately by the Minnesota Suprem e Court on the basis of the state constitution. It is considered unlikely that the case will go to federal courts, since the US Supreme Court two decades ago held that tax-paid bus rides for non-public school students do ot violate the federal constitution. Some 75 per cent of the students in school district 2065 a t ten d non-public schools. The plaintiffs note that St. Boniface High School and grade school here, attended by many of the pupils involved, teach the "doctrines, creed and tenets of the Roman Catholic Church." They say that the state constitution bars Se of tax funds for the support of church- lated schools and that the bus ride law s therefore in violation of the constitution. iCRS Raises Vietnam Aid ) NEW YORK (NC) -- Catholic Relief Services -- National Catholic Welfare Conference has greatly increased its pro- gram of aid to Vietnam, Msgr. John F. McCarthy, assistant executive director, said. Monsignor McCarthy said CRS-NCWC recently sent more than 40 tons of medi- cines-worth some $400,000--to the coun- t?, the largest single shipment of medi- nes in the agency's 20-year history, Half the medicine was donated by the Catholic Medical Mission Board. CRS also sent 200 tons of salt and 2,400 cases of sweetened condensed milk. Monsignor McCarthy announced that ERS has also requested permission from the United States Agency for International Development to increase its Vietnam feed- ing program from 400,000 to 650,000 per- T Joseph Cardinal Rifler, Archbishop of St. Louis, is flanked by Jose Cardinal Oulntero of Caracas, left, and Laurean Cardinal Rugambwa of Bukoba, Tanganyika, during the opening ceremonies of Vatican II's fourth session.

Also shown, below, is Josyf Cardinal Sllpyi, exiled Ukrainian Rite Archbishop of Lwow.--(Rellgious News Service Photo By JAMES C. O'NEILL VATICAN CITY (NC)--A historic meet- ing of the ecumenical council voted over- whelmingly to present to the world a de- [initive document affirming man's civil right to religious freedom. The vote was taken September 21 after five days of debate on the subject by 62 council Fathers and was a special vote proposed by the council's board of mod- erators. The Fathers at the 132rid general council meeting were asked to vote on the question: "Do the Fathers judge that the revised text on religious liberty can serve as a basis for a definitive declaration which will be perfected in the light of the Catholic teaching on the true religion and accord- ing to observations proposed by Fathers during the discussions and which will be approved later according to the regulat- tions of the council?" The answer to the question was resound- ing. Of the 2,222 Fathers voting, 1,997 said yes; 224 said no, and one vote was null. With the closing of the debate on re- ligious liberty the council turned to the next matter on its agenda, the lengthy and complicated schema on the Church in the modem world, sometimes known as schema 13 because of the place it occu- pied during the third session of the council in 1964. The first to speak on it was Francis Cardinal Spellman of New York, who asked that the present text not be weakened be- cause the document should be a clear affirmation of the Church's place in the world today. The Church wants to listen, Cardinal Spellman said, and wants to be listened to in a real dialogue. stands now, "the document does no honor to the council," Following Cardinal Spellman, Juan Card. inal Landazuri Ricketts of Lima, Peru, said great progress has been made in this draft as compared with the previous one. However, he said he agreed with Cardinal Bea that the Latin style was poor. He also objected to its modes of expression, say. ing that at times it spoke almost ex cathedra and then again often used a '"IV tone." Noting that it runs to more than 30,000, words, Cardinal Landazuri said it is far too long and too repetitious. Raul Cardinal Silva Henriquez of Santi- ago, Chile, said he found the schema ac- ceptable but also criticized the text for be- ing too long. He asked tJat it be given a greater doctrinal tone instead of its pas- toral tone so that it could be on a level with the Constitution on the Church. Lorenz Cardinal Jaeger of Paderborn', Germany, said the substance of the schema is good and that it responds to the needs of modern times. He suggested that at the end of the council a new commission be established to apply theological principles to today's problems and to issue something similar to the catechism that was issued after the Council of Trent (1545-1563). The day's last speaker was Cardinal Bea. In addition to finding fault with the document's Latin, he also declared it was far too long and repetitious. Still, he said, the work that went into its preparation should be recognized and admired and added that it seems to have found the special language and tone needed for this type of document.

Day in NY ice belongs to civil authorities and that ROME, Sept. 22--Last week the fourth session of Vatican II got under way just before we went to press or rather, just before I had to meet my deadline and there was little to indicate the pull- ing and tugging that was to occur dur- ing the week following with regard to the revised schema on religious liberty. Archbishop Connolly Both pros and cons were well and open- ly and frankly aired during the week by some five speakers who were more or Archbishop of Seattle less evenly divided on this controversial subject. The so-called conservatives led by Cardinals Ottaviani, Siri and Ruffini as well as a large number of Spanish, Italian and Latin American bishops, for the most pai't found a great deal of fault with the text of the schema, recom- mending change after change that could only result in rendering it devoid of any meaning. This attempt to riddle the text and send it back to the commission for a fourth re-drafting, would, it was hoped, entail the tabling of the schema until the present session closed or, if not then, the final discussion of it dur- ing the first convocation of the Synod of Bishops next year. In either instance, the schema would be scuttled, much to the joy of its opponents. However, the progressive element among the council Fathers, led by the American cardinals as well as by those of the Middle European bloc, had the enthusiastic backing of the moiority of the bishops who spoke on the trouble- some subject. Many of the terms used in the re-drafted schema do require clarification and it was necessary to distinguish and sub-distinguish at times to make one's remarks clear and per- tinent. Freedom of conscience, religious lib- erty, the subjective and objective atti- tudes of groups and governments toward the problem, all had to be spelled out properly. At the suggestion of many of the Fathers who spoke on the schema, these items would' be takdn care of in the commission before the schema would be presented for a final vote. The continued oratory in the council chambers was likened by some of the reporters and columnists here to a fili- buster 'but that certainly was not the case. The Holy Father desires every bishop in the council to have the right of free speech and the opportunity of expressing himself on any point on the agenda. The only limitations are that he must do it in ten minutes and that what he proposes to say has not been said before. Even these conditions were ig- (Continued on Page 3) Goes The Progress intricacies of the POP program were finalized at the second of two meetings among the business staffs of The Progress and the Chicago New World in the Olympic Hotel in Seattle.

POP goes Friday, October 1. But unlike PAL (Progress Advertised Labels), POP total marketing will NOT be limited to assigned parishes. POP is open to all non-profit organizations -- Catholic and non-Catholic- which regis- ter with The Progress to share in the POP FUNd. The POP FUNd will be derived by the setting aside of a generous pe'centage of the total advertising revenue from POP accounts. This FUNd could amount to more than several thousand dollars. The POP franchise was secured from the Chicago New World, America's largest metropolitan diocesan newspaper. This ex- clusive franchise places The Progress along with the Buffalo, NY, Magnificat under the name of POP Markets' Newspapers.

While explaining that there was nothing extra to be bought, nothing to be sold and no drastic change in purchasing habits, Dee revealed that in under three years of activity in Chicago the program has dis- persed $92,000 in cash ewards, and has received 92 million Proofs Of Purchase (labels, box tops, etc.). While it is rare to be able to protect a marketing idea, the POP Total Mar- keting program is considered so unique that it was accepted for registration with the United States Copyright Office under certificate Bb-22256 October 5, 1962. Similar marketing programs involving secular media have been promoted in the past but none in the country has ever had more than 15 advertising sponsors. The 60 advertising sponsors created by the Chicago New World program is an indication of the tremendous enthusiasm with which POP has been received by the organizations who benefit from the Cash Awards for their Family FUNd-Raising FUN. i 1965 Tour Leader Fr.

Although the New York cardinal was highly favorable to the new text of the 146-page document on the Church in the modern world, most of the other speakers of the day were not. Augustin Cardinal Bea, president of the Secretariat for Promoting Christian Unity, said he frequently had to consult the French translation of the document to un- derstand the Latin version, despite the fact that he had taught in Latin for 50 years.

Mass Offered In Esperanto REMINI, Italy (NC)--The new vernac- ular Mass took on yet another sound here with its celebration for the first time in the Esperanto language. "Sankta Meso en Esperanto" at the Church of St. Bernardine formed part of the opening ceremonies ot the National Esperanto Congress September 19, by spe- cial permission of Bishop Emilio Biancheri of Rimini. The bishop's vicar general, Msgr. Emilio Pasolini, is a longtime Es- peranto enthusiast. In his homily--also in the synthetically created language -- the celebrant, Father Albino Ciccanti, OFM, noted that the lan. guage, like the Latin on which it is largely based, has a universal significance in that it attempts to liberate people "from the Babel, not only of their idioms, but also of their rivalries." Among those attending the Mass was the Russian actor Nicola Rytjcov who once spent 12 years in Siberia for his ardent advocacy of the language when it was opposed by Stalin's regime. It was the first congress he has been permitted to attend. VATICAN CITY (NC)--The Vatican City daily, L'Osservatore RemanD, has pub. lished what Vatican sources describe as a "still unofficial" schedule for the Pope Paul VI's October 4 visit to the United Nations in New York. After addressing the general assembly at 3:30, Pope Paul will meet all delegat personally, L'Osservatore Romano said. Although rumors persisted tn Vatican circles that the Pope Would extend his visit for at least one day, the paper said that his departure is scheduled for about 11 pm on the same day he arrives, which will bring him back to Rome about 11:30 the next morning. Other details of the trip include the departure from Rome October 4 at S:30 am, aboard an Alitalia jet arriving in New York about 10 am EDT. After meeting authorities at the airport, he will be driven through downtown New York to St. Patrick's Cathedral, where he is expected to arrive about noon. Both before and after the UN visit, which is scheduled to end about 6 pro, ha will stay at the residence of Francis Car. dinal Spellman. The Mass for peace in Yankee Stadium will be at 8: 30, after which the Pope will go directly to the airport, the paper said.
