This is the sixth o t the series ou birth control.) ia'th control in women by surgical means is accomplished by re- moval of the womb, removal of or tying the tubes, or removing the ovaries. In men, the operation consists of tying the tubes which transport the sperm, or removal of the testicles. of the ovaries or testicles also produces castra- tion. Thus, these irocedures practically never done as contraceptive operations. The natural law forbids a doctor to per- form any of these procedures for the purpose of birth control or sterilization and forbids a patient to submit to such an operation for the same reason. We all know of persons who have had one or more of the surgeries mentioned above and we ask. "How is this possible?" The answer comes under the moral prin- ciple of the double effect, which declares that an act which is good in itself is permissible John EckhaH 'A Funny Book' Blithe Spirits, edited by Dan Herr and Joe W e I I s, Doubleday & Co., 220 pp., $3.95. he introduction of this book proclaims un- equivocally that if criti,cs do not think that this is a funny book, then said critics a re "grouty, cross-grained churls."

He is standing on it when the priest opens the little door to absolve the new sinner. The boy peers between his legs to see what is going on and treats the priest to the vision of a youthful up- side down face peering from the darkness.

But it is nice to know I am not cross grained, grouty, or a churl. Funny book. . Work While the Aghts Lasts, by Dam >Iubert van Zeller, O. S.B., Image Book, 160 pp., 75c. The citizens of this modern age are in constant need of writers like Dam Zeller, writers who can properly assess the peculiar contemporary p r o- blems and apply the corrective medicine of, Christianity. Our Lord spoke his truths for all men in all times unto the con- summation of the world. It is the work of each age to live these truths, and as they must, develop their spirtuality within the framework of their environ- ment. Father Zeller's work is an aid to that very end, the work- ing out of our spirituality here and now. This is never easy, and Father Zeller emphasizes the fact that spiritual growth is not easy, nor was it meant to be. And our age of the Bomb and the spreading satanic social theory of Communism do not aid in this development. We might recognize an ex- ample of Father Zeller's pro- fandity in the essay entitled, "Simplicity in Art." He es- tablishes an eternal and valid norm for the artists when he writes, "The artist ceases to be a true artist the moment he loses the simplicity of his vision. If he interprets beauty in terms which are not true, if he attracts attention to himself and not to the beauty which it is his gift and mis- sion to reveal, if he begins to wallow, he not only fails in his service to God and to his fellow man and to his profession, but he destroys his own powers of percep- tion." It is with this same lucid, literate style that the author pursues such subjects as "The Law of Sin," "Perseverance in Prayer," and "The Near Saint." If after reading this book the reader still is certain that the spiritual life stands waiting in an ivory tower, then they must at least admit that Dam Zeller has led them a goodly way up the twisting stairs of prayer and contempla- tion. ,..alendar SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 11, TWENTY-SECOND S U N D A Y AFTER PENTECOST, MASS: Si iniquitates--If thou shalt observe (Green).

In general then, an operation may be per- formed regardless of the side effects of the surgery, if the organ removed or the condition corrected is considered diseased. The Church does not ask one to persevere against great risks. It simply requests that the surgeon and Lhe patient evaluate the pro- blem on the basis of good standard medical practise. The reason for performing any sur- gical operation is the key to morality. Therefore, removal of a diseased uterus is permissible even though sterilization results. There are no diseases treated by tying a normal tube in a woman, or the corresponding tube in a man, so these operations are always wrong. you might ask how a Catholic hospital can from performing such an operation on a non- Catholic patient These are natural laws, as op- posed to Church laws and, therefore, applicable to all people. On the other hand, a Catholic hos- pital will serve meat on Friday because the rule against it applies only to Catholics. Many people think that it is only the Cath- olic Church that forbids sterilization and ab- ortion, hut the truth is that some theologians of Protestant and Jewish faiths are also agreed on the immorality of these procedures. It is not uncommon for other churches to make exceptions however, leaving the Catholic Church standing alone as the firm voice insisting that there be no exceptions.

Week Justified ? ne of the certain manifes- tations of the growing impact of automation is the in- creasing thought toward a shorter work week. In some in- stances, i.e., t h e Electrical Workers, N.Y.C., a 35-hour- week has become a reality. But this has not yet established an industry practice and op- position from many quarters of ownership and manalement continues to grow. There are few areas of disagreement that will serve as well to test the precepts of the Papal social encyclicals. The voice of ownership is reflected in statements by such men as Joseph Block, chairman of Inland Steel Co., William S. Ginn, president of Baldwin - Lima - Hamilton Corp., and Judson Sayre chairman of Norge Div., Borg-Warner Corp. T h e s e gentlemen insist that the 35- hours, week is upside down economics, "a step in the wrong direction," and just plain "tommyrot." They see the 35-hour-week as a straight 12.5 per cent increase in pay- roll with no increase in pro- ductivity. If there is no increase in productivity there will be much merit to these arguments.. But there is little merit in owner- ship's assertion that they know what is best for "the worker." Labor is represented by a voice perhaps better attuned tn the wants and needs of labor. George Meany, president AFL- CIO, has stated on numerous occasions, including his last visit to Seattle this past sum- mer, that the 35-hour-week is a reality and that management must get used to the idea. It is his contention, and the con- tention of labor in general, that the shorter week is one answer to the growing unemployment problem caused by increased use of automated plants and production lines. Early explor- i The The Church and Worker By John J. Eckhart Fourth of a Series atory work has already begun in such basic industries as steel and the paper mills. There exists, then, two poles of opposition represented by a way of thinking in one instance that perhaps has yet to accept the 40-hour-week, and by a policy that demands more, and more. and more for the union member. Because of this op- position there exists this prime chance to put into operation hose precepts of social doc- trine that plead for honesty and charity on both sides. The case for the 35-hour-week stands validated by the evi- dence of history. Man will continue his efforts to ease his physical burden. It is within the nature of man. as we well know, that his mind is made for infinite knowledge and that he wilt never stop searching for increased knowledge on the natural level. One facet of this search is his ability to make nature, in combination with the tech- nology of man's genius cut the physical labor required to earn his bread. We have moved from the 6S-hour-week of the 18th Century to the common 40-beur-weck of to- day. There has always been opposition. There will always be opposition. We cannot im- mediately label such opposi- tion "reactionary," but must attempt a better understand- ing of the opposition reason- ing. All workers, at all times, have not invariably offered a full day's work for a day's pay. This is the burgeoning evil of our creeping materialism and loss of spirituality. There is a growing number of workers who are satisfied with less than a full day's effort on their parts, but who will continue to accept the full pay. If such an attitude per- sists then management has some cause for coneern. It is very possible that there will not be an increase in production, perhaps even a lass under the 35-hour-week. If this attitude persists, man- agement will eertainly be giving a 12.5 per cent in- crease with no eomparable offer made by labor. And labor cannot be justified with the simple knowledge that the 35-hour-week will become an historical certainty, "so why fight it?" The justification will lie in management's willingness to accept the notion of the 35- hour-week as one antidote to automation layoff, and labor's willingness to guarantee that the 35-hour-week will not mean a status qua or decrease in pro- duction, If these ideas are ap- proached in the sure knowledge that their ends coincide and in the spirit of the brotherhood of eternal ends, man may yet enjoy the fruits of increased leisure time. That in itself is another problem. By Rev. John L. Thomas, S.J. Associate Professor, St. Louis University Why are some fathers so anxious to have their sons do well in sports? According to my husband, our sons fist don't live up to his expectations and never try hard enough in the field. We hear sports #am morning until night (including meal times). It is a constant, bitter, sarcastic argument right through. I like to watch my children play, also, but not to the point that I nag and nag if they don't do as well as an- other kid. Father, I'm not exaggerating when I say that the children and I are becoming very nervous over this situation. What can I do? suppose most parents start out with somewhat inflated expectations for their progeny. As a rule, their hopes in this regard reflect their values. If they hold intellectual pursuits, business success, music, athletic prowess, or some particular profession in high esteem, their parental expectations will normally follow corresponding lines. Sometimes these hopes play the role of self-fulfilling prophecies in the sense that what initially only imagined or hoped for abilities are eventually acquired through the special efforts the child may make to meet parental expectations. Of course, if parental hopes are ground- less or too high, there is bound to be trouble, for parents will feel that the child is not really trying, while constant failure to meet expected standards will deprive the child of confidence in whatever abilities he may FATHER possess. , THOMAS As in your family circle, mothers and fathers may differ widely in their parental expectations. You apparently regard sports as a pleasant diversion for your sons, while your hus- band takes a much more serious view, Lthough it is not clear from your description whether he is primarily concerned over his son's failure to star on the field or over what he considers their lack of effort. Let us explore each of these possibilities a little further, since they reflect different attitudes and must be dealt with dif- ferently. tf the major reason he is irritated is their lack of outstand- ing success, his attitude may stem from several different sources. He may be a "drugstore quarterback" who has had little actual experience in sports and consequently underestimates the dif- ficulties involved. He may be comparing his sons' performance with and exaggerated image of his youthful prowessyou recall the old saying" The older we get, the farther we could swim or throw a ball when we were young! He may have been frustrated, either by lack of size. parental prohibition, or absence of opportunities, in his own desire to play as a youth and is now deeply irritated with his sons because they are not performing the way he imagines he would have done if he had had the opportunities they now enjoy. Wholly Unbalanced View r. like not a few other Americans, he may" have a wholly unbalanced view of the importance of competitive sports and related athletic prestige, so that he feels his sons are threat- ening to fail him in the one activity he understands and values. We have a good number of these perennial adolescents around, and it has been their insistence on always having winning teams that has lead our schools to neglect the physieal training of the average student while devoting huge expendi- tures uf time and money to select, train and equip a handful of young gladiators, whose primary purpose in school is to man the various teams. On the other hand, your husband may chiefly be concerned over the boys' lack of effort in sports. If his diagnosis of their failures is correct, he has reason to be worried, for young males who do not try hard m competitive sports either lack normal self-confidence, are unduly fearful of being hurt, or display a a psychologically unhealthy indifference to teamwork and social challenge. it is possible that your sons show indifference or reluctance to becoming wholly "engaged" in an ever expanding circle of mascaline activities because they are still too closely bound to you and oriented to the predominantly feminine world of childhood. Perhaps your husband senses this vaguely and is reacting to it more or less blindly. Encouragement Is Needed hat can you do? If his irritation stems from an ex- aggerated esteem for athletic success, you're not likely to change his outlook, but you can point out in no ancertain terms that by his ranting and constant criticism he is effectively destroying their chances for success. Ask him what he has ever done to help them improve, and point out that if he pretends to understand so much about sports, he should know that a player's self-confidence and as- surance, steadily maintained by the eneouragement and support of the people he esteems, are key factors in his sueeess. But as I suggested, your husband may have solid grounds for his irritation, though his efforts to remedy the situation are quite irrational. Every mother must someday face the facts that her growing sons, like awkward fledglings, must be encourag- ed to leave the nest. the protective woman's world of their child- hood, and make their start in the rough, competitive world of men Teach your sons to give their best in whatever they do. The common error in regard to competitive sports is not in wanting to win but in upsetting our rational hierarchy of values by making sports an end rather than a means.
