Richard Stohr to submit his resignation as pastor of Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish in Seattle to the Most Reverend Thomas A. Connolly, Archbishop of Seattle. ') Father Stohr resigned because of overwork, brought on by construction of a new school and conducting of affairs of a large and busy parish. For several months, he has been suffer- ing from intense fatigue and has been advised by his physician to take an extended leave of absence. The West Seattle parish was established by the Archbishop in 1960 and Father Stohr was named its first pastor. Prior to that appointment, Father Stohr served as the first archdiocesan CYO director for 10 years. Archbishop Connolly appointed, effective October 15, Rev. ) James H. Deady as pastor of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Score Appearance Of Sen. Humphrey O  ST. LOUIS (NC)--A spokesman for the St. Louis archdiocese described as inappropriate the appearance of Sen. Hubert Humphrey before the National Con- ference of Catholic Charities. Jacob N. Fueglein, manager of the archdiocese's bureau of information, said the Democratic vice presi- dential nominee's speech October 6 to the 50th annual meeting of the charities conference was arranged by the conference's national headquarters in Washington. "Senator Humphrey's appearance at the meeting was  scheduled without the St. Louis host committee," consulting Fueglein said. "In so doing, they overlooked two basic facts: namely, that an election campaign is in progress and that just as there are Democrats who are Catholic there also are Republicans who are Catholics," he said. Charles S. Lamay, president of St. Louis Catholic Charities, also criticized the Humphrey appearance. "This is a professional meeting of people interested in charity and the handling of dK charity cases," he said. Humphrey, whose topic was "Cooperation of Public and Private Agencies in Alleviating Poverty," was scheduled to address a downtown rally for him later in the day. It was his first visit to St. Louis since his nomination. Fueglein said the Humphrey appearance was scheduled since the nomination. "It even came too late to make the printed program," he said. In Washington, William Polldng, legal consultant for the conference, said Humphrey was added to the program because ) the meeting's theme was "The Public Welfare--A Shared Res- ponsibility" and Humphrey was a major spokesman for the anti.poverty program passed by Congress. Polking said October 5 the Senator's office had requested that ha be allowed to speak. Msgr. Raymond J. Gailagher, secretary of the National Conference of Catholic Charities, told a press conference October 5 that Humphrey was invited because "he had just completed a book on poverty in which he took some original approaches to this problem." Msgr. John W. Miller, executive secretary of St. Louis Catholic Charities, said 100 telegrams had been received eriti. eizing Humphrey's appearance. In his remarks, the Minnesota legislator praised the charities conference for its devotion to the principle that "wise legislation ca make men better by making society better." "You have never fallen into the trap of blaming the poor for their poverty--you have never attempted to rationalize or excuse the fact of the poor, either by deliberate oversight or neglect," he said. "I do'not intend to demean your intelligence by rebutting the preposterous notion that poverty is simply the faculty of the poor," he said. Humphrey argued that yesterday's luxuries are today's necessities. "This is the exciting story of American progress," he said. i J InToday'sProgress...

A Buddhist bonze gives hotly political "sermons" over loudspeakers, night after night in Saigon. Stu- dents in Saigon and Hue stage demonstrations to make the government yield to their political demands. "People's Committees for National Salvation," organized by a coterie of leftist professors and students, usurp the powers of local governments, threaten people and arrest them. False rumors are spread to make Catholics think that Bud- dhists are going to attack the churches, to make Buddhists think that Catholics are about to burn down pagodas. Meanwhile the dull thud of guns by night tell that the "National Liberation Front for South Vietnam" forces, the communist Viet Cong, are attacking outposts and villages. These are all parts of one operation, one concerted, multiple offensive to make South Vietnam and its allies, especially the U.S., yield to Communism. Precious time and effort are wasted when these activities are treated as separate, unrelated problems. Everybody taking part in them is not consciously pro-Com- munist. The devout Buddhist listener, inflamed by a wild story about weapons being forged for Catholic use, does not realize that be--or, more often, she--is being goaded to promote a Communist objective. The young student demonstrator guesses only vaguely, if at all, at the aims behind the slogans prefab- ricated for him. The professor or doctor who accepts a neutralist argument does not realize that neutralism, as advocated by the Viet Cong Communists, would only clear the way for Communist rule.

This time it is the Negroes' turn to visit the whites. This anticipated v e n t u r e, wherein hosts and visitors share their personal insights and experiences in give-and- take discussion on race, is being sponsored by the Chris- tian Friends for Racial Equa- lity, the Catholic Interracial Council of Seattle and the Christian Family Movement. The underlying idea is the same as before with the in- formal conversation in a living room setting. The only change from the June venture is that Negroes switch roles from hosts to visitors and Cauca- sians vice versa. Some 400 persons partici- pated in the initial Home Visit Day. Registrations for the second event is running a poor second with approximately 90 white hosts and 40 Negro visit- ing couples listed thus far. "M o r e encouragement is needed to get our Negro brethren to participate," said Walter T. Hubbard Jr., CIC president. "The three-to-one ratio eould possibly be traced to the lack of under- standing by both sides of what this Home Visit Day tries to accomplish." The purpose of the Home Visit Day in Seattle was aptly described by Dr. Thomas W. Hungerford of CFM, who said: "Basically a Home Visit Day is an educational tool. Even among well-meaning people of both races there is a large amount of ignorance --and most whites have no idea of the extent of the dis- erimination faced b y t h e average Negro and most Negroes have little idea of how the average white per- son feels about such prob- lems. The situation is com- plicated by the fact that in our segregated society whites and Negroes have little or no opportunity to meet on a social basis on one another's homes. Unless such a meet- ing is arranged, it will seldom happen." Registrations wi l I be ac- cepted until Friday, Oct. 16. Interested persons are asked to call CFRE Office at MA 3-8896 from 9:30 to 12:30 Mondays, Wednesdays or Fridays. Fur- ther information may also be obtained from EA 5-9487 or E,A 2-2974.

According to tradition, the master general of the Domini- cans, Rev. Aniceto Fernandez, O.P., was to officiate at the evening funeral October 8. A continual stream of car- dinals, priests and laymen viewed the body in the chapel of Jesuit headquarters. Pope Paul sent a telegram of condolences to Father Swain in which he said: "Only the certainty of heaven moderates our sorrow in the recollection of a life spent en- tirely in faithfulness to the re- ligious ideal in the service of the Holy Church and for the growth of this order, to which he gave the example of upright virtue and the daily effort of wise and profitable direction." --The Rev. Jean Baptiste Janssens, S.J., the 27th general of the Society of Jesus, died here October 5, minutes after receiving a final absolution at the hands of Pope Paul VI. He was 74. Father Janssens had been general of the Church's largest religious community since 1946. Until a new general is elected, the society has been entrusted to its vicar general, Rev. John L. Swain, S.J., of the'upper Canadian Province of the So- ciety. Father Swain lived in the Northwest during 1938 and '39 having made his third proba- tion at Manresa Hail, Port Townsend, Wash.

From neutralism the passage will be easy to unification of industrial rice-hungry north Vietnam with the fertile south, under Communist rule. It takes no extraordinary eyesight to see the links between the different parts of this concerted movement. The 25-year-old "press officer" of the students who clamored against Prime Minister Gem Nguyen Khanh's government of Aug. 25 showed up as press officer of a Buddhist organizing committee the following week. Demonstrating students took directions, by messenger, from a bonze. Dr. Le Khac Quyen, dean of the faculty of medicine in Hue University, and a few fellow-professors set up a "People's Com- mittee for National Salvation" in Hue and sent paid students out to organize it in other provincial centers. The Hue committee denounced and defied the government. In Danang, Qui Nhon and Nha Trang the committees, in soviet fashion, arrogated to themselves the powers of local authorities. These committees, Buddhist demogogues and the Saigon papers that they reportedly subsidize have lately been promoting a witch hunt against former members of the Can Lao Nhan Vi (Personalist Labor) party of the late Ngo dinb Nhu. Last winter and spring nobody seemed to think the "Can Lao remnants" dangerous. The present campaign, artificially stimulated and unsup- ported by hard evidence, is simply a drive to eliminate anti- Communists, especially Catholics, from publie life. In Qui Nhon, for instance, this illegal committee arrested or enforced the arrest of 23 persons on Sept. 20 and ensuing days. These persons, almost all Catholics, had apparently nothing against them until the soviet-style committee arrived to dictate to compliant local officials. "The Catholics working around here are terrified," one Qui Nhon resident reported, The leader of these "People's Committees," Dr. Le Khuc Quyen, has a reputation as a leftist. He and his colleagues pub- lish the antigovernment weekly review, Lap Truong (Viewpoint), for which the anti-Catholic, anti-American, neutralist bonze, Thich Tri Quang, has written. Dr. Quyen's group also publish a small daily political sheel, significantly named Thanh Dan (Struggle). Their student follow- ers-many university students in Hue are strongly opposed to them--publish a paper entitled-Luc Lu'ong, meaning Force. Lay Apostolate Schema Introduced In Vatican Council VATICAN CITY (NC) The lay apostolate schema introduced at the Council October 6 aims at recalling the value and necessity of the laity's apos- tolic activity, at enunciating principles governing it and at providing pastoral directives which can make it more effec- tive. The schema consists of an in- troduction and five sections. The first section is entitled "Apostolic Vocation of the Laity" and treats of the three aspects of this: 1. The laity's share in the mission of the Church. 2. The apostolic tasks which are the duty of each and everyone. 3. Training for the apsto- late. This first section establishes the principle that all mem- bers of the Church must co- operate actively each in his own manner, in the mission of the Church, which is to con- tinue the work of Christ on ' earth. Cooperating in the sal- vation of all men is the honor and duty of each and every member of the Church and is accomplished first by prayer and personal holiness. At the same time, an apos- tolic spirit must animate the whole of human activity, and it is by their lives that Chris- tians are witnesses to the pres- ence of Christ in the world. The poor should be the special concern of the aposto- late and social conditions must be created which will make human life .possible and easy. Training m the apostolate comprises b o t h spiritual and doctrinal elements, as well as a knowledge of the social sciences, as fast as this is pos- sible. The hope is expressed that aside from parents, teach- ers, priests and catechists, specialized centers may be opened to give more advanced training to laity. The second section of the document considers communi- ties and situations under five aspects: 1. Fields for the apostolate. 2. In the families. 3. In eeclesialeommunitie. 4. In different milieuX. 5. In groups with open memberships. The family exercises an apostolate through radiating its own example. It can foster preparation for marriage and assist its members and other families. It can also defend family rights. Ecclesial communities refers to the parish and diocesan level of the apostolate, with the laity working closely with priests and bishops, and also in interdiocesan activities, with a deep consciousness of be- longing to the universal Church. Christians living outside their country must remember that among men there must be a brotherly exchange, in which each gives and receives. Cath- olics must promote whatever is true, just and holy in groups with mixed membership. The third section deals with the aims to be achieved by the apostolate. This section dis- tinguishes between the evangel- men and the Christian inpira- tion of the temporal order. The laity has the duty to work for the conversion of men and to lead them to God, Es. pecially in today's complex life, the laity's experience is important. The temporal order has to be penetrated throughly with the Christian concept by Christians who observe the moral law dictated by charity. The laity has a special role to (Continued on Page 2) Progress Is Host To Catholic Press Meet Newsmen from arch- diocesan and diocesan newspapers in Washing- ton, Oregon, Idaho, Montana and British Columbia and from two Catholic magazines will come to Seattle Sunday through Tuesday, Nov. 8-10, for the annual Pacific Northwest Re- gional Convention of the Cath- olic Press Association.
