Governor Rosellini and Mayor Clinton along with UGN, state and lo- cal health departments have joined with the Seattle Committee on Alcoholism to sponsor a community conference on alco- holism which will be held November 29 at the University of Washington, Few realize that alcoholism directly afflicts over 5,000,000 Americans, and indirectly through its cost in human suf- fering, its disintegration of the family and economic attrition to individual and community, spells heartache for millions more. Fewer still are aware that the a'l- coholic is not only suffering from a moral weakness, but also from a physical disease a disease which ranks among the four major health threats along with cancer, mental illness and heart disease. We would lik to take this oppor- tumty to compliment Richard Silver, Executive Director of the Seattle Com- mittee on Alcoholism. along with his dedicated staff, [or their sel[-sacri- ricing service to alcoholics o/this area. Mr. Silver's committee is concerned with alcoholism, not social drinking: It is based upon conviction that alcoholism is a community, not just an individual problem. It therefore attempts the fol- lowing: to stimulate community concern about alcoholism and understanding of this .illness; to implement a program of prevention through education of the gen- eral public, designed to lead to the early recognition of the symptoms of alcohol- ism and its treatment; to remove the stigma so that the hidden alcoholic and .his family will seek help; to encourage the community to provide needed treat. meat and services to the problem dtirker arid his family. The Seattle committee provides counseling arid referral services to prob- lem drinkers, their families, friends, and employers; serves as a referral source to all treatment resources; serves as a re- source to social agencies, profession- Reds By Louis F.

NOt t0 be outdone by others, the Com- munist party made a signff.i- cant announcement on youth work In October. It was then that this party created a Corm munist Youth Division, "to give proper emphasis, push, and scopeto youth activities." With tl "Cuban crisis" which nOW confronts the nation, this Cotttlttunist pro- bing of out' yfluthw thlnkhg and acting Bcomes mote vital.

Anyone who has ever worked with an alcoholic knows what a some. times thankless and difficult task this can be. This is a week, not only to become informed about alcoholism, but to pay tribute to that committee which is making this all.important knowledge possible. We must always remember that al- coholism is both a physical arid moral problem. Weak will power often brings about the physical disease. Once the dis- ease is cured it will inevitably require strong moral discipline and courage to maintain health and sobriety. Alcoholism is one disease wherein both the doctor and the priest, natural science and super- natural religion must work hand in hand if health is to be restored and main- tained. Those who work with alcoholics are working with the entire man body and soul. Such an occupation becomes a vocation, calling for complete and total dedication coupled with patience arid utlwavering faith. If someone in your family suffers /rom the disease of alcoholism, you may very well be in need of profes. sional help and guidance. Don't hesi- tate to give the Seattle Committee on Alcoholism a call. The information you give them wi/l be strictly con]i- dential. Their ]ree counsel and ad- vice /ortified by Mass and the Sacra. ments has instilled new hope in the dispairing souls el thousands.

Cardinal Hits Indifference To Communism ROHE, Nov. 23 (NC)--A Vati- can cardinal has issued a warn- ing against the indifference of ple to COmmunism which threatens Italy and the world." Aifredo Cardinal Ottaviani, Secretary of the Supreme Sac- red Congregation of the HOly Office and long an outspoken adversary of C o m m u n i s m, stressed " that because of the deplorable inertia Of good poo pte, the false profet ar b, co'filing masters of the world," The Cardinal's wartng w contained in aprefaee to a book by Msgr, Merle Crovini, an official of Elm Holy Office, The book is a study of the encyclical Divin{ Redafo is written by Pope Plus XI on the dangers of Communism. Cardinal Offaviani declared that Communists have b e e n able to establish "an empire, which is the most widespread that has ever existed, in which the dominion Of oppi'eed men is equalled by the foclotm,Ss d the oqesrs." The Cardinal pointed out that despite Italy's 1 0 n g Ctholic heritage "the people are lin deceived w i t h the Opittm of Communist materialism." a i No M, IndivMttal ' ,onverts. By REV. JOHN |.

In his talk to the observers, Pope J6hn remarked that at the opening Of the Co u n cil "my eye from time to time ranged over the multitude of sons arid brothers and sud- denly as my glance rested upon your group, on each of you personally, I drew a spe- cial comfort from your pres- ence," The observ, ors a r e the "white- haired bOyS" Of t h e Council.

Have Vital Interest SitC the Paulist Fathers were forided by Father Hock- er for the conversion of Amer- ica, we have a vital interest in this question Of the future of convert work. The other night a few Paulists here in Rome had d i n n e r with Monsignor Willebratds, sectetary of the 8:rtariat for P r 0 m o t i flg Christin Utiity, arid with Fa- ther Franz Tbijssen, who has charge of umenicai work in the diocese of Utrecht, Hol- land. Durltg the ettir meal we discussed this matter of the relation of ecumenical to con- vert work, AS he had already done on il 19I v i s i t t0 Ariea, Moflslgn0r Willebrands as- serted that the two move- ments are riot at all hostile Mlt complimentary though it may be diflietdt for one man to do both suecessfuily as each work requires a differ- ent "approach." Father ijgsert dla{med that in theory there is rl0 reas why convert WOrk should riot cotitlue but that, in fact, many convert workers are un- consciously doing harm be- cause of their CotrtevRtor- marion mental!ty. They have been gchooled by teachers who are still fighting fe ,gfOra- ti0n Or itfflteed bS: the little apologetic m arUals that bristle with sharp b e I 1 i C 0 s e argu- ments.

Father Thijssen is hopeful that the prevalenc of the ecu- menical movement will t e i d to improve th mth0ds Of those who work for iMividual conversions. It will dissipate the Counter,Ref0rmati0n atti- tudes and replace them with an irenle approach and with the Sl#irit of the iblicai and litur- gical movements, As matter of fact, convert workers in the U,S. have been making great strid in t h e last few years toward a ible- centered and altar - centered apostolate.

Of The Eucharist VATICAN CITY, (NC)-- Blessed Peter Julian Eymard, who will be canonized December 9, is known as the Apostle of the Blessed Sacrament. He organ- ized priests, Religious and lay people to spread his lifelong devotion to the Eucharist. The most active part of Peter Eymard's life was lived in the France of the Second Empire, whose intellectual life was domi- nated by great literary figures hostile to religion. These writ- ers attacked Christ's Divinity when they did not attack the Divinity itself, preached a sen- sual and self-centered amorali- ty, and refused to acknowledge anything beyond what the senses could grasp. To a world that saw the senses as the supreme instru- ment and the supreme satisfac- tion, Peter Eymard held up the Eucharist which could neither speak to the senses nor pamper them. To a godless world, he proclaimed that this was God. His mission, as a modern French bishop has remarked, was to bring millions of souls to thetr knees before the Eu- charist. Born Near Grenoble Blessed Peter was born at La Mute d'Isere near Grenoble in the French Alps February 4, iHll, of middle class parents. His father, Julian Eymard, a cutler by trad e , suffered for his Faith during the Reign of Ter- ror in 1794. His mother, Matte Madeleine Pelorse--his father's second wife--took Peter, when he was still a baby, to visit the Blessed Sacrament with her frequently. Peter was the last and only surviving child of four children of his father's second marriage. Blessed Peter showed a lively devotion to the Blessed Sacra- rdent from his earliest years. When he Was only four, his 14- year-old half-sister, Marianne, found him in church one day, standing on a stool behind the tabernacle. She asked him what he was doing there. "I am near Jesus," he re- plied, "and listening to Him." YOung Peter Eymard Wanted to study for the priesthood, but his father would not consent. He wanted his son to take Over his thrivifig bttsiness. So Peter Julian saved up his money, bought a Latin grammar and started studying on his own. Wocked Pot Edueetio# Pei' Julian received his first formal education at a boarding school in La Mute, where he paid his way by working for the headmaster during his free time. When he was 17, he worked for the haplain of an institu- tion for sick and wayward women in Genoble in return for Latin lessonS. After six months there, his mother died and he wt back hote with his ather arid ststz'. Yqung Eymard's fathdt was finally persuaded by Father Jo- seph H. Gui[ert, O.M.i., lter CardinabArchbisbop of Paris, to let his  enter the n0vltiate of the Oblates of Mary Immacu- late in MarseilleS. Peter trttered in June, 182, but he had to leave because of poor health six months later, Entered Seminaff in 1831 Peter Juliarfs f a t h e r died after a short illness March 3, 1831, and Pet er was free to Calendar SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 2m, TWENTY - FOURTH SuNdAY AFTER PENTECOST, MASS: Dicit Domifius -- The Lord said (Green).

In October, he was assigned as curate in Chatte. Three years later, when he was only 26, he was appointed pastor in Men- reynard. The people there had not had a pastor since the French Revolution at the end of the 18th century. Within two years, all the parishioners had returned to reception of the sacraments. Joined Marists Father Eymard entered the Marist F a t h e r s novitiate in Lyons in 1839. He took his vows as a Marist February 16, 1840. Father Jean Claude Colin, who founded the society in 1816, ap- pointed Father Eymard spiri- tual director of a preparatory seminary in Belley. in 1844, he was appointed Provincial Superior of the Marists in Lyons; in 1845, di- rector general of the Thlrd Order of Mary; and was Vise, tor Generalof the Marlsts from 1840 to 180, whef he replaced an aililt 8 mater of novices. The following year, February 2, while he was praying at the shrine of Our Lady of Fourviere in Lyons, Our Lady is said to have asked him to found a con- gregation devoted to honoring the Blessed Sacramerlt. Father Eymard submitted his idea of founding a society of adoration of the Blessed Sacra- ment to Pope Plus IX who re- plied on June 29, 1853: "It is a beautiful thought, if it material- izes, I will give it my encour- agement." Founded New Or4er He was released from his vows as a Marist so that he could devote himself to the work of organizing the new Con- gregation. On June I, 1856, Father Eymard opened the first house of the Congregation of Priests of the Blessed Sacra- meet in Paris with one com- panion, Father Raymond de Cuers, The first solemn position of the Blessed Sacrament took place ola January 7, 1557. At first, the Blessed Sacrament was exposed three days a week --Sundays, Tuesdays and Thurs- days, Father Eymard's aim was to have exposition continuously from Holy Saturday to the tel, lowing Holy Thursday. Pope Plus IX signed a laud- atory brief for th y o u n g order the first step in the ap- proval of a new congregation, January  18fL The 1 n a l brief of approbation was given on June 3, IgOr.
