Bishops' Commission ill Aid Pope • Council Votes on Birth Control hema VATICAN CITYmThe Vatican Council approved proposals to establish a central commission of bishops to aid the Pope in governing the Church and to re- organize the .Roman Curia. Both proposals were voted by overwhelming major,ties in balloting on amendments to the schema on duties of bishops. The vote on the bishops' commission showed the council's largest number of qualified-approval ballots, 852. Qualifications centered mainly on dropping the the word, "full," from the phrase saying the bishops with the Pope have "full and supreme power" in the Church. By Patrick Riley VATICAN CITY (NC)mThe ecumenical council heard the Church's Dutch cardinal declare that "an honest doubt" is arising among married people and theologian on whether the rhythm method of birth control is the only moral way to reconcile the demands of married love with the other needs of married life. The "precise question," said Bernard Cardinal Alfrink of Utrecht, "is this: in performing this one and the same act a moral conflict has arisen. For if in this act a couple wants to preserve its biological purpose, their human duty of the human and Christian education of future and present offspring is com- promised. "If, on the other hand, they wish to preserve the good of fidelity and the good of education, then (outside of periodic continence, which is exercised by many spouses with great Christian virtue, but more often is tried with great inconveni- ences, or outside of complete continence, which . . . demands greater moral strength than a couple normally is supposed to have) only one solution is open to them: namely, performing the marriage act while excluding offspring, at least in this concrete act." Cardinal Alfrink said it is evident that if this exclusion were accomplished "by the use of means which without any doubt are intrinsically evil, the Church can never admit the (Continued on Page 2) THE REV.

Q00daw Khrushchev- ,00or Neegotiated Prelate's Freedom NEW YORK (NC)- Norman Cousins, editor of ethe Review, dis- Saturday closed he went to the Soviet Union in December, 1962, to negotiate with then Premier Nikita Khrushchev for the re- lease of Archbishop Josy f Slipyi of Lvov, who had spent nearly 18 years in jail and un- der house arrest. Archbishop Slipyi's release liwas announced in Moscow Feb. 'IP'9, 1963, tWo months after the Cousins-Khrushchev meeting, and at the very time that the Catholic prelate was secretly arriving! in Rome. Pope John XXIII confirmed news of the release on the morning of Feb. 1O, a Sunday, and met the Ukrainian Catholic primate that same afternoon.

They lee depending on youl and last February Pope Paul VI conferred on him the new title of "major archbishop." Cousins tells of his part in gaining freedom for the Byzan- tine Rite leader in the lead ar- ticle of the Saturday Review for November 7, entitled "Notes on a 1963 Visit with Khrush- chev." In it, the 52-year-old ed- itor makes public the fact that he had long meetings with Khrushchev both Dec. 7, 1962, and April 12, 1963. He did not report on the meetings when they occurred, Cousins states, because he was serving as a "private emissary" rather than as a journalist. The second meeting took place two days after Pope John's encyclical on peace, Pacem in Terris, was released at the Vatican. Cousins relates that he had been entrusted with an advance copy of the en- cyclical, translated into Rus- sian by Vatican officials, for presentation to the Soviet Pre- mier. He recalls that when he gave the copy of the encycli- cal, Khrushchev told him he was pleased and would "read it with great interest." Of the first meeting, in Mos- cow, Cousins states: "I was acting in behalf of church lead- ers who felt the time might be opportune for exploring the possibilities of enlarged free- doms inside the Soviet Union. In particular, the object of the mission was to obtain the re- lease of Bishop Slipyi, head of the Ukrainian Rite..." The editor records that his liaison with the Holy See in the Slipyi negotiations was Rev. Felix Morlion, O.P., president of the Pro Deo University in Rome. Of his initial meeting, Cousins states: "I was authorized to say that Pope John was hopeful that the bishop might spend his few remaining years--he was now in his seventies--at some distant seminary. "The chairman (Khrash- ehev) had said . . . that he would like to establish good relations with the Vatican and that he had a profound (Continued on Page 2) Official Newspaper for the Archdmcese of Seattle T.o'r',o. ..........
