ONE COAT MAKES HIM RICH SHE CAN SHIELD PEPITO FROM THE SUN "A HAPPY DAY FOR ME, SENORES!" Your Cast-offs Can Be Their Comfort NOT TO BE OUTDONE BY THE OLDSTERS Archdiocese Ready For Clothing Drive I r' ":. j i Catholics of the Arch- diocese of Seattle will have an opportunity to contribute toward the relief of poor and homeless people over- seas during the 15th annual Thanksgiving Clothing Collec- tion to be conducted this year during Thanksgiving Week. The Clothing Campaign is one of the principal means by which the Bishops of the Unit- ed States give aid to the needy around the world. Last year, relief supplies worth some $25 million were donated by U.S. Catholics to the drive. Clothing received in the collection is shipped by the Catholic Relief Services, an agency of the National Catholic Welfare Conference, to distri- bution centers in areas of need and distress in 67 countries. According to the Most Rev- erend Thomas A. Connolly, D.D., Archbishop of Seattle, the greatest need this year is for a heavy type of clothing and blankets, but any good used clothing is acceptable and welcome. "This work of charity is im- portant not only in combatting Red propaganda but in winning over the minds and hearts of people by showing them Chris- tianity in action," the Arch- bishop said. Clothing donations should be taken to parish churches, which are the centers for the Clothing Collection.

I S, 1963 PAUL VI receives the keys to his Cathedral, the ancient Basilica of St. John Lat- eran. Centuries.old pageantry marked the solemn ceremony during which Pope Paul,' as the new Bishop of Rome, formally took possession of the church. --(Religious News Service Photo.) Pope Hopes To Give Rome 00arishes 'New Vitality' ROME ( N C ) -- Pope Paul VI, on taking pos- session of his cathedral church, the Archbasilica of St. John Lateran, said hopes to give "new vitality" the parishes of his See of Rome. The 66-year-old Pontiff also told the people of Rome No- Headlines and e Is Spirit of Moscow?' George N. Kramer, Ph.D. Nikita Sergeivich Khrushchev was in his glory when he lectured a score of U.S. leading busi- nessmen and achieved a trade victory. The occasion was the 46th iVersary of the Bolshevik volution which was cele- ted by a military parade, a display of what assertedly were anti-missile missiles, and ora- tory threatening the U.S. At a Kremlin reception Khrushchev last week told some 2,000 guests, including the American executives, that the Soviet Union would overtake U.S. within seven years. ad they understood what ushchev was really saying, they migbt not have partici- pated in the series of boastful vember 10 he intends to make "pastoral visits" to encourage them. Fifty cardinals and 1,200 pa- triarchs, archbishops and bish- ops were among the more than 20,000 at the stately rites which lasted more than four hours. Thousands lined the route the Pope took across Rome from Vatican City to the Lateran. The Pope received the keys to the basilica, symbolizing his assumption of full powers as Bishop of Rome, when he reached the entrance. He him- self offered Mass at the basili- ca's main altar. In a discourse after the Gospel, the Pope recalled that the Lateran basilica had been the scene of five ecumenical councils and that its history marked the progress "some- times slow and painful, some- times free and victorious, of the mysterious passage of Christ through time." "Today," he said, "this basil- ica, as never before in the long centuries of its existence, holds almost all the world's episco- pate to receive splendidly and solemnly the latest of her pon- tiffs, the lowliest and most humble" in the whole line of popes. "He has no right to enter here as lord and master," he said, "other than the irrefuta- ble right of having been canon- ically elected Bishop of Rome." Speaking to the cardinals, pa- triarchs and bishops, the Pope said: "Brethren, it seems to Us that no other place in the world, no other hour than the present one, gives Us the ha.p- piness to celebrate, to experi- ence in a practical way, this living charity, this mystical presence of Christ in man- kind: 'I am with you.' He is here with us and for us." Then, speaking of Rome, he said: "We realize that Our re- lations with the city are differ- ent from those of past centu- (Continued on Page 3) Cardinal Spellman Asks Progress In Rights NEW YORK (NC)--Francis Cardinal Spellman has called on the country to "move rapidly ahead" in giving all citizens equal opportunity in jobs, housing and education. "A momentum has developed; it must not be allowed to lag," the Archbishop of New York sdid. "Not content with mere general declarations of principle, we must involve ourselves with all men of good will in specific efforts to advance the great cause of equal rights," he added. Cardinal Spellman's remarks were contained in a letter sent to the Thomas More Society here in connection with its fourth annual Civil Rights Mass, November 16. The Mass is being offered in St. Francis Xavier Church. Praising the observance, Cardinal Spellman said it is "most fitting that the great prayer of the Mass be offered that true human dignity and due civil status be properly recognized Council Fathers Look Homeward ROME, Nov. 13 Things are looking up around these parts late- ly. Airline agents haunt the hotel lobbies now, 1 o o k i n g for business, seeking to arrange re- turn reservations for the Fathers of the Council, etc. All this points to the fact that the end is in sight, that the Council will end in three weeks, on December 4, as or- iginally scheduled, that if we happen to survive the deluge of verbiage under which we have been submerged, we shall return to our respective arch- dioceses and dioceses at that time, with the help of the Good Lord. It will be good to be back at home, sweet home and I shall be looking for the skies BY THE MOST REVEREND THOMAS A. ONNOLLY to drip a tearful welcome! Thus far, no date has been mentioned for the opening of the next session of the Coun- cil, although there are a num- ber of rumors making the rounds, as usual. If you don't like a particular rumor, yon can start your own on its way and eventually it will c o m e back to you, more or less rec- ognizable and guaranteed as coming from a reliable source! ! ! Rumors Affect India Bishops The Holy Father is reputed to have told the bishops from India that the Council would open September 4 next year and close on November 15. This would permit the bishops from India to return home to prepare for the International Eucharistic Congress which is scheduled for Bombay from November 26 to December 3. Archbishop of Seattle Viii Western Union It would likewise allow other Council Fathers to take in the congress on their way home. Another rumor is to the effect that there will be no Council session next year, that the various commissions would remain in Rome through the year working constantly on the various schemata or theses or con- stitutious or agenda, as you will, so that they would be presented to the Fathers in a more logical sequence, better defined and more in harmony with the central theme of the Second Vatican Council than has been the case this session. There must be greater in- sistence on the genuine pas- toral character of the Council, on the effort to reassess the position of the Church in the modern world and to discover ways and means to improve its approach to all men. We shall see what happens for the next week s h o u 1 d tell the story. Congratulated Archbishop Carinci Last week I had the privilege of shaking the hand of a 101- year-old prelate, Archbishop Alfonso Carinci, the retired secretary of the Sacred Con- gregation of Rites. Fie cele- brated his birthday last Thurs- day and while he is somewhat feeble, suffering as he does from anne domini, he appeared at the Council and received an enthusiastic round of applause from the Fathers. His mind is clear and he has the full use of his faculties, hearing, sight, etc., which is rather excep- tional. It so happens that during these days there is a sharp de- bate going on regarding the age at which bishops should retire from their posts or rath- er, should be made to retire from the government of their dioceses. There are many ar- guments being advanced for a legal enactment to force re- tirement for a pious exhorta- tion would have little or no consequence. It appears to me that eoad]utor bishops and aux- iliaries are in the vanguard of this onslaught, probably with some reason for traditionally, when a bishop receives the services of a coadjutor bishop to assist him in his declining years, he seems all of a sud- den to take a new lease on life. However, Archbishop Car- inci does net seem to be in. terested in the outcome of the present discussion.

PATRICK O'CONNOR SAIGON (NC)Budd- hists in Hue gave an en- thusiastic welcome home November 9 to their fa- vorite Catholic priest. He is Rev. Paul Can van Luan, who has been reinstated by Vietnam's military council and provisional government as rector of the state university in Hue. His dismissal followed the Buddhist protest demonstra- tions. His summary dismissal Au- gust 18 sparked a protest movement among Hue profes- sors and students that spread to the student world in the university and some second- ary schools in Saigun. "About 500 people gathered at the airport to welcome Fa- ther Luan, and 1,000 formed a parade that conducted him into er informed the N.C.W.C. News Service by telephone from Hue. "They put him on top of a sports car and people waved at him from windows as the pa- rade went through the streets. It was quite enthusiastic." Buddhists are said to make up ,30% of Hue's population, estimated at 100,000. Hue parish statistics show 15,800 Catholics in the city. The great majority of the 50 full-time professors (of whom more than 40 re- signed in protest over Father Luan's dismissal) and most of the 2,500 students enrolled in Hue University are non-Chris- tians. Catholics, Confueianists and others ioined the Buddhists in last August's protests and in calling for the priest's return. They joined again in the pub. Hc welcome. Father Luan's reception in Hue, w h e r e Buddhists first clashed wth the former gov- ernment's forces, is a n o t h e r sign that the real issue is not ARCHBISHOP DANIEL MANNIX Dies At 99 Melbourne's Colorful Archbishop Is Dead MELBOURNE, Austra- lia ( N C )  Archbishop Daniel Mannix of Mel- bourne, who in his 51 years as an archbishop never lacked color and seldom sidestepped controversy, died here November 6 four months short of his 100thbirthday. Born on a dairy farm in Ire- land's County Cork, the prelate was nnmed Coadjutor Arch- bishop of Melbourne by Pope St. Plus X July 1, 1912, when he was serving as president of Cookies For The Nhu Children Ahead of them were cardinals, archbishops  and bishops of Co- lombia, Peru and Venezuela, Melkite Patriarch Maximos IV Saigh of Antioch, and other archbishops and bishops of the Melkite Rite.

When he became the Ordinary of Melbourne in 1917, the Arch- bishop was already a contro- versial figure. An ardent cham- pion of independence for Ire- land, he had spoken out repeat- edly against conscripting Aus- tralians to serve with the Brit- ish in World War I. In 1920, following a speaking tour of the United States con- demning British rule of Ire- land, Archbishop Mannix sailed on a British ship for Ireland. The ship was intercepted by a Royal Navy vessel and the Archbishop was arrested a n d taken to England. Refused permission to enter his native country, he trav- eled in England and Scotland lecturing in behalf of Irish independence. In 1913, within a year of his being named to the Melbourne See, Archbishop Mannix de. nouneed Australia's policy of not a i d i n g denominational schools.
