Each new report from Cuba icates that the Soviet build- up there is progressing quite effectively--and with phenom- enal speed. What has not been suffi- ciently publicized are the prep- arations being made to invade adjacent areas, such as the s of French-speaking and Guineans, who certainly were not brought to Cuba to cut Ne s cane, but more proba- Jnalysis to raise cane in neighbor- ing Dominican Republic. Then there is the leaking "defensive" weaponry to shores of other Latin American countries, Venue- zuela and British Guiana, for example. With the vast concentration of arms and munitions which has converted Cuba into a giaflt arsenal, the U.S. has about as much hope of contain- Red aggression in this isphere as carrying water in a sieve.

Only the weekly general audi- ence and private audiences of a special or official nature will be held, according to an an- nouncement issued by the Papal Master of Chambers. The general audiences, the announcement said, will gen- erally continue to take place on Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m. in the Apostolic Palace.

(Radio, NC)--A preview of the ceremonies which will open the Second V a t i c a n Ecumenical Council October 11 has been published here by the Vatican City daily. L'Osservatore Romano re- ported that the ceremonies will begin in the morning with an assembly of the council Fath- ers in the Hall of Benedictions in the Apostolic Palace. His Holiness Pope John XXIII will sing the hymn, "Veni Creator Spiritus," to invoke the guid- ance of the Holy Spirit. Then, chanting the hymn, the council Fathers will descend by way of the Royal Stairs and the bronze doors to St. Peter's ,square and then go through the central door into St. Peter's basilica. Segni will head the Italian mis- sion. At the end of the Mass, the Pope will give a discourse formally declaring the opening of the council. The ceremonies and the discourse will be trans- mitted by radio and television. In the afternoon, Amleto Cardinal Cicognani, Vatican Secretary of State, will give a reception in the Apostolic Palace honoring the members of government missions. That night, the faithful of Rome plan to organize a torch- light procession to honor the council Fathers and the Pope, and to express their joy at having the council in their city. The demonstration brings to mind the Council of Ephesus in 431 when the faithful of that city demonstrated in a similar manner. The Pope will grant a special audience to the members of government missions on the following day, October 12, in the Sistine Chapel, Church Exhibit Planned ROME (NC)An exhibit aimed at inspiring vo- cations is being prepared here by the world's Catholic organizations.

Connolly, now en- route to Rome for the Council, says: "The Second Council will bring together almost 3,000 Cardinals, Patriarchs, Primates, ArchbishoPS and Bishops, Abbots and major religious superiors -- undoubtedlY the largest number of skilled, cap- able and resourceful men that has ever been assembled in one phice at one time. "What other body of men has a greater knowledge of the problems and misery of the human race, a deeper under- standing of the yearnings of the human heart, and a surer insight into the Divine plan for genuine happiness? "Begging the prayers of all the faithful throughout the world, His Holiness has stated: 'This undertaking is so im- portant that human efforts and human powers will not, by themselves, be able to bring it to a successfuI conclusion... It is important for you to beg for the light and strength of the Holy Spirit constantly "hn your prayers and petitions.' " With the plea of Our Holy Father in mind, Archbishop Connelly stated: " . . . we cannot be accede to the plead- ings of His Holiness to offer earnest prayers for the suc- cessof the Council.

The novena is running from September 21 to 29 in all Rome churches. The Pope was pres- ent at novena ceremonies Sep- tember 23 at the Church of Christ the King. A notice in the Vatican City daily, L'Obs- servatore Romano, stated the Pontiff chose that church be- cause of its title and its as- sociation with the late Pope Plus XI, as well as the fact that it is staffed by Priests of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, whose founder Pope John knew as a young man. Father Leon Dehon. the founder, was one of the stenog- raphers of the First Vatican Council. The Pope visited the parish once before, 40 years ago. More than 2,000 people, in. eluding a brass band, were an hand as Clemente Cardinal Micara, Vicar of the Rome diocese, welcomed the Pope. Cardinal Micara was observ- ing the 60th anniversary of his ordination m the priesthood on the same day. Announcing An Amazing New Feature Christian Culture Series-- Theology for the Layman Pages 6 and 7 A new and stimulating program which will serve as a text for Confraternity of Christian Doctrine Study Clubs, and a fresh study of Christian Theology for all our readers begins on pages 6 and 7 of today's Progress. It is a review on an adult plane of the histoT of salvation, an all-embracing survey of doctrinal theology. The uniqueness of the course springs from the fact that it is based upon a comprehensive historical chart which traces the entire history of man's sal- vation as revealed by God from the creation of the world to the present day. The series will run every other week in The Pro- gress through the school year. In addition to the text, discussion aids in the form of questions and prob- lems to be salted will always appear with the text. The ultimate goal of the course is to equip the reader with a complete and unified synthesis of all Christian Doctrine.
