The vacating of the building by the former owner and the hiring of a new staff by the Archdiocese has now been completed. Many things remain to be done, but applications are now be- ing received and processed. Colonel Joseph Primeau, manager of The Josephinum, states that he has 200 rooms ready for occu- pancy. The Josephinum is not "an old folks' home" or a nursing home in the popular meaning of those terms. It provides a hotel-type living for persons 62 years of age and over, who are in reasonably good health, and who wish to lead independent and active lives. One need not be retired to be eligible for admittance. Living units consist of bedrooms and suites for single and double occupancy. A limited number of deluxe and penthouse suites are available. Rooms are completely furnished, including wall-to-wall carpeting and drapes. All rooms have private bath, telephone and large closet. A chapel, dining room, library, lounges, hobby shop, TV and card rooms, are now being designed and furnished. Daily Mass will be afforded guests by a resident chaplain, and religious, cultural and social programs will be under the direction of four resident Sisters of St. Joseph of Newark. Prices of rooms range from $50 to $150 monthly, with deluxe and penthouse suites at higher rates. Rates do not include meals. The Josephinum will have no infirmary. Since the living units are hotel-type rooms, there are no kitchen facilities. The location of The Josephinum permits easy access to down- town shops, banks, theatres and office buildings. The hotel is con- venient to all types of public transportation. When Archbishop Connolly announced the purchase of the New Washington Hotel in September, he pointed out that the planned residence hotel "will put the senior citizens in the main stream of community life." Those desiring further information with regard to The Jo- sephinum should complete the coupon provided for this purpose.

An open house will be held Sunday, Nov. 10, and the cele- bration of the feastday of St. Frances Xavier Cabrini will be observed Wednesday, Nov. 13. The two events will have added meaning at the institu- tion, eondueted by Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart. The hospital on First Hill was recently given full accredita- tion by the Washington State Department of Health whieh had granted St. Cabrini a hos- pital license. St. Cabrini since 1927 had operated under a provisional license.

The Mass also will mark the 5Oth anniversary of the Villa's founding. After Benediction, which will follow the Mass, there will be a reception in the school par- lor. On display will be relics of the saint, including articles of clothing, silverware which she used at the Villa and checks bearing her signature. In 1880, at the age of 30, Mother Cabrini founded the Order of the Missionary Sis- ters of the Saered Heart at Codogno, Italy. T e n years later, at the direction of Pope Leo XIII, she eame to Amer- ica and established her bead- quarters in New York City. Mother Cabrini sent two of her religious to the Pacific Northwest in 1903 and later that year came herself to open a mission for the Italian-speaking immigrants, some of whom had not seen a church in 40 or 50 years. The mission was located on two lots on Beacon Hill, and its bell may be seen at St. Vin- cent de Paul. In 1909, while in Seattle, Mother Cabrini became a United States citizen. Visiting Seattle again for a few days in March, 1913, Moth- er Cabrini prolonged her stay to find a site for an orphanage. This establishment later be- came Sacred Heart Villa, which was converted to a private school in 1951. The school now has 254 students. Mother Cabrini in 1915 founded Columbus Hospital in what was the Perry Hotel. The amount of money neces- sary for her to secure the purchase of the hotel became available to her the night be- fore the forfeiture, when two gentlemen representing t h e Scandinavian Bank rang t h e doorbell and offered her the loan which the bank had pre- viously refused. The figure representing this to holiness in the Church," Bishop John J. Russell of Richmond told the Fathers: "Before taking up the ques- tion of sanctity in the mem- bers of the Church, the text should speak of the essential sanctity of the Church . . . We know that the Church has sinners in its ranks, that there are scandals among persons consecrated to God, aposta- sies, r a c i a ! discrimination and the like. "Unless we distinguish these two aspects of sanctity, we are open to the charge that our in- sistence on sanctity in the Church is only an attempt to whitewash the facts." Bishop Franjo Franic of Split, Yugoslavia, t o 1 d the council whereas the schema presents the order of bishop as a model of holiness, "this is not borne out by the facts." He held that "the cause of a lack of sanctity in bishops today is a lack of evangelical poverty." Thus he called on the council to determine "the concrete forms of poverty for bishops." Fernando Cardinal C e n t o, G rand Penitentiary of the Church, asked the council to pass a resolution calling for beatification and canonization of more lay people. He said this would encourage the laity to strive harder for holiness. ' 2 to 4 p.m. for the public.

Give :: .... Rites To Blast Victims INDIANAPOLIS (NC) -- Sev- eral priests administered last rites to the dying and com- forted the injured in the wake of an explosion at the Indiana State Fairgrounds Coliseum here which claimed at least 64 lives. About 340 persons were in- jured in the October 31 blast attributed to leaking propane gas in a concession storage room. The explosion occurred only a few minutes before the closing act of an ice show that drew 4,300 spectators to the coliseum. About six priests worked in the coliseum itself while oth- ers rushed to the six hospitals in the area where the injured were taken. More than 100 were taken to St. Vineent's Hospital and St. Francis Hos- pital, the two Catholic hos- pitals in Marion County. The Rev. James Higgins, vet- eran police chaplain, heard the announcement of the explosion on his automobile police radio and was at the scene minutes after the tragedy occurred. He and other priests at the scene stayed in the coliseum all night, digging through the rubble for the dying and injured. THIS NEW $170,000 convent for Assumption Parish will be blessed Sunday, Nov. 9, for the Dominican Sisters on the staff of Assumption School, Seattle.

Patrick O'Connor SAIGON, Vietnam (NC) ArtiJlery and macbinegun fire ushered in a new gov- ernment for South Viet- nam early on All Soul's Day after 16 hours and 20 minutes of fighting. According to first reports, President Ngo dinh Diem on the morning of November 2 handed over his powers to the military junta which started the revolt at 2 p.m. the previous day. The heaviest resistance ap- parently came from the presi- dential guard. No figures were available late S a t u r d a y on casualties. The official radio announced in the Saturday forenoon that Ngo dinh Diem and his broth- er and counsellor, Ngo dinb Nhu, had committed suicide at I0:45. Around 9:30, a military spokesman had told a press conference that Diem and Nhu had apparently escaped. Dur- ing the same press conference he said that later word had been received that they had been captured. At 4:15 Saturday afternoon, the military information officer could give this correspondent no details on the alleged sui- cide, which would have been entirely contrary to Ngo dinh Diem's strong religious prin- ciples as well as to his char- acter. This correspondent has rea- son to believe that the Ameri- can embassy in Saigon asked and received assurances of a safe-conduct out of the coun- try for Diem and his brother. Several cabinet ministers re- portedly took the side of the military junta Friday evening. Mobs, mostly composed of youths, raided and burned some progovernment newspaper of- fices and one cabinet minister's home. They also smashed win- dows and burned books dis- played in a bookstore the prem- ises of which reportedly are part of the properties held by Archbishop Pierre Ngo dinh Thuc to support educational and other works. Archbishop Thuc, another brother of Diem, was in Europe for the ecumenical council. Twenty-five members of the presidential guard were said to have been killed in a heavily shelled barracks about 500 yards from the house which is the quarters of Msgr. Joseph Harnett and Rev. Robert Bar- rett of Catholic Relief Services- National Catholic Welfare Con- ference, and the N.C.W.C. News Service correspondent. (The Ray. Paul Duchesne, CRS-NC- WC director in Vietnam, was temporarily absent). Shrapnel fell around the house, but no- body was injured. Earlier in the afternoon, the three priests had to hit the pavement when a plane dropped a bomb and heavy firing began on the street near the post office. The Saigon cathedral was undamaged although artillery fire came very near it.
