To the Clergy, Religious and Laity of the Arch- diocese of Seattle: Dearly Beloved in Christ: One of the best means at your disposal to show your thankfulness for the many blessings that Divine Providence has bestowed upon you and your loved ones, is to share those blessings with others. The annual Thanksgiving Clothing Campaign will, again this year, be conducted throughout all the Dioceses of the United States. This annual Cloth- ing Collection has been one of the principal methods used by the Bishops of the United States to carry on their vast program of overseas aid-- aid which has literally helped millions of poor, starving, homeless people in every land. Here at the Ecumenical Council in the Holy City of Rome, we have met and talked with a number of Missionary Bishops. They have been unanimous in their praise of the generosity of the people of the United States in this particular campaign and they have time and time again insisted on the importance of this effort. This work of charity is important not only in combatting Red propaganda but in winning over the minds and hearts ,of people by showing them Christianity in action. This year, the greatest need is for a heavy type of clothing and for blankets. However, any good used clothing is acceptable and it will be welcome. I am sure that as you have rallied in the past to this call of charity, so too now, during this Thanksgiving Week you will once again open up your hearts to the poor and suffering of the world. You may rest as- sured that a bountiful providence will reward your prayer and your good works. Praying God's abundant blessings upon you and with every best wish I am Devotedly yours in Christ, THE PROGRESS--3 Official N.D.

It is the parish. "Yes, the ancient and famil- iar religious and pastoral in- stitution we all know. The par- ish must gather you all togeth- er, help all of you and unite you in prayer and charity. "It would he Our great de- sire to give all of Rome's par- ishes a new vitality, beginning with the awareness that we must all have of this primary center [the parish] of unity, friendship, veneration a n d Christian formation."

Blames Parents For Youth Unrest READING, Mass. (NC) -- Parents are abdicating authori- ty to the moral detriment of their children, a priest charged here. The Rev. Richard McQuade of St. Agnes Church told a group forming a youth council that parents, by not maintaining au- thority over their children, are to blame f o r an increase in drinking, reckless driving and immorality among them. He criticized teenage social life on wee k day nights, youthful dating, ownership of cars and all-night proms. Missioners MOSHI, Tanganyika (NC) -- President Julius Nyerere has said that Tanganyiki is much indebted to missionaries of all denominations who are helping to bridge the gap between "this underprivileged country and the highly industrialied countries of the world." He was speaking at the open- ings of Assumpta College near here, a Catholic secondary school for girls. Twelve vocational trades will be taught. The design of the institution on the 400-acre site is such that additional units can be added readily.

Ric- cardo Lombardi, S.J., founder of the Movement for a Better World, has been refused a visa to go to Mexico. The Italian priest, who has traveled in virtually every country in the free world, has repeatedly filed applications for a visa with the Mexican gov- ernment for the past couple of years. Father Lombardi has never been told officially why his ap- plications have been refused. But unofficially he has learned that his name has been linked with a Carmelite publication in Mexico City, Mundo Meier (For a Better World), which has been out.spoken in its criticism of the Mexican government's policy regarding religion. De- spite the similarity of names, the Mexican magazine and Father Lombardi's movement have no connection. (Commenting on Mexico's re- fusal to allow Father Lombardi into the Country, Mundo Meier stated: ("While the nation's doors are closed to a preacher of charity and Christian unity, they are opened wide to admit an as- sassin." (The publication was refer- ring to the visit to Mexico of President Josip Broz Tito of Yugoslavia. During the Com- unist leader's visit in Mexico one of its issues was confiscated by police in Acapulco shortly before Marshal Tito arrived there.)
