Asks Free Catholic Press LISBON (NC)--A Catholic bishop has declared that religious publications must be free of government interference if they ar e going to act in the service of truth. The statement was made in a sermon by Bishop Enrico Dias Nogueira of Vile Cabral, Mozambique, at a Lisbon Mass mark- ing the 41st anniversary of the Catholic daily newspaper, Novi- dudes. It was subsequently printed in the newspaper December 16. It was the latest act in a recent tug-of-war between the Church and state in Portugal. Stressing the importance given to the Catholic press in the ecumenical council's degree on mass communications, Bishop Ditts Nogueira said the service of truth is not always easy because of "various impediments" placed on publications. As an instance of this he mentioned financial interests that shape editorial policy. Opening 'Pageant of Peace' WASHINGTON, D.C. -- President Lyndon B. Johnson lighted the national Christmas tree and inaugurated the annual Pageant of Peace, here. The tree and the pageant decorations are on the Ellipse, the park behind the White House and in the shadow of the Washington Monument.

McDonald of Washington, rector of the Catholic University of America, gave the invocation at the ceremony.

' Cardinal Mclntyre greeted the childrel and gave them gifts. place in history, 1964 per. haps will be remembered best as the year of the big changes Pope Paul VI changed papal practices by making a jet plane pilgrimage to the Holy Land at the beginning of the year, and made a similar pil- grimage to Bombay, India, for the 38th International Euchar- istic Congress near the close of the year. It was the year when the most progressive civil rights law in the last century was en- acted in the United States, when the ecumenical movement engendered by the late Pope John XXIII continued to spread through the nation, and when a record 44,874,371 U. S. Catho. lics, a year's increase of 1,026,- 433, was counted. It was the long.awaited year when English was introduced in the Mass and in the admini- stration of the sacraments throughout the nation. Here are some outstanding events of the year of great changes: January Meeting with Orthodox Pa- triarch Athenagoras highlight- ed Pope Paul's VI's historic Holy Land pilgrimage ....

McDevitt, Waltham, Mass., elected K. of C. Su- preme Knight, succeeding Luke Sanfa Fe See Joins Sae Church Council SANTA FE, N.M. (NC) The Catholic archdio- cese of Santa Fe, in an action described as a "def- inite, step in mutual un- derstanding and true charity," is joining the New Mexico Coun- cil of Churches. Archbishop James P. Davis of Santa Fe and the Ray. Mr. Harry Summers, executive sec- retary of the church council, ointly announced the historic step (Dec. 19) at a meeting in the archbishop's office here. The New Mexico Council of Churches p r e s e n t 1 y includes seven Protestant denominations as members. This is the first time that a Catholic diocese has oined a Council of Churches. However, St. An- drew's Catholic cathedral in Grand Rapids, Mich., and a Catholic parish in Tulsa, Okla., belong to the local church councils in their areas. Archbish Davis and the Ray. Mr Summers listed four "basic princioles" which they said underlie the decision. They are: "I) The 'peace of Our Lord Jesus Christ' will be evidenced in one more witness by this action. "2) The essential fact of 'unity but not uniformity' will be recojnized in a noble effort toward the ideal of John XXIII and other ecumenical leaders: 'unity in essentials, difference in everything else'." "3) Strength will be tdven to certain fundamental doctrines and principles which the church must communicate to the con- temnorary world. "41 The present unwarranted dunlieations, mainly in social policies, charitable endeavors and so on, will be made un- necessary." The two men called the move "a source of deep satisfaction and a cause of great expecta- tions not only for the Christian communities of the state but also for every man of good will, because it is a definite stay in mutual understanding and true charity." "The message of Christmas is certainly evidenced by this act of fraternal charity, for which the prayers, the support and the understanding of all men of good will are both asked and needed," they stated. Archbishop Davis designated Msgr. O. A. Coggiola-Mower, pastor of the Church of the Annunciation i n Albuquer- que, as representative of the Santa Fe archdiocese to the Council of Churches. Msgr. Coggiola-Mower has for sev- eral months represented the archdiocese in his reiatlona with the council on a less official basis.

October Pope Paul canonized 22 Uganda Martyrs, slain in 1885, Re.enactment of Three Wise Men A: AFRICAN youngsters, members of a Maryknoll mission parish in Tanzania (formerly Tanganyika) commemorate the feast of Epiphany, coming January 6, by re-enacting the visit of the Three Wise Men, one of whom, Gasper, was an African.(NC Photos) FOR HOLY LAND CHURCH: Pope Blesses Cornerstone VATICAN CITY (NC) --Pope Paul VI blessed the cornerstone of a new Sanctuary of the Primacy which will be built in the Holy Land on the remains of an ancient church marking the spot where Christ .told St. Peter "Feed my lambs. , . Feed my sheep." The Pope visited the spot last January 5 during his pil- grimage to the Holy Land. To the minister general and administrative council of the Franciscan Order, which plans to build the new sanctuary, the Pope said: "It was natural that of the many stopping places which marked our pilgrimage from one spot to another in the land of Jesus, one in particular should fill our soul with a dee p inner emotion: That is to say, the place which offered us a vivid re- minder of the conferring of the primacy to the Apostle Peter when Christ addressed to him the solemn words 'Feed my lambs... Feed my sheep.'" (John 21,16) The Pope praised the Francis- cans for determining to build a new Sanctuary of the Primacy at el-Tabgha. The present plans call for the removal of the gray-stone walls erected by the Franciscans in 1943 over the ruins of the ancient shrine of the primacy and replacing them with a more elegant memorial to the conferring of the pri- macy. A member of the Fran- ciscan council emphasized, how- ever, that the new b u i I d i n g U.S. Bishops Approve Grant for Montezuma ROME (NC) -- The U. S. Bishops have approved a grant of $1,250,000 for construc. tion and remodeling at Monte. zuma Seminary, the institution which trains priests for Mexico Funds for the seminary in New Mexico will be raised over a three-year period and will come at the rate of approxi- mately $200,000 a year from the Bishops' Welfare Fund and $250,000 a year from the fund of the American Board of Cath- olic Missions. Montezuma Seminary was es- tablished by the U. S. Bishops 28 years ago to train priests for Mexico when Catholics In that country were suffering bloody persecution. S i n e e establish- ment, the seminary has trained 1,300 priests, seven of whom are now bishops. T h e school provides major seminary training o n I y. The present student body numbers 426. It is staffed by 26 Jesuits from two Mexican provinces. The Bishops' grant will pro- vide for the erection of two new student dormitories and a chapel and extensive renova. tion of the old central building which lacks many modern facil- ities. During the p a s t scholastic year, two-thirds of the operating funds for the semina, were provided by the U. S. Bishops and one-third by the Mexican hierarchy. Archbishop ,lames P. Davis of Santa Fe, N,M,, appealed to the bishops for the grant. The prelate, chairman of the Epis- copal Committee f o r Monte- zuma Seminary, noted that it has achieved an "outstanding reputation for scholastic excel- lence and spiritual formation of high quality." The Archbishop said the high reputation of the seminary is illustrated by the fact that it receives more than twice as many applicants as it can han- dle. He added that 34 of 53 Mexican dioceses a r e repre. sented i.tha present student body. - would be "modest." Pope Paul said the sanctu- ary would remind pilgrims "of the place where Peter received from Christ the keys of his kingdom and where, 20 centuries later, he returned as a humble pilgrim in the person of his successor." The Pope also spoke of his "esteem and admiration for the work, never sufficiently praised, which the sons of St. Francis have been carrying out for seven centuries in the land of Jesus." Franciscans have built most of the Catholic shrines in the Holy Land. More than 400 Fran- ciscans are in the Holy Land to staff holy places and give help to travelers. Anglican College Honors Priest WINNIPEG, Man. (NC) -- A Catholic priest received an hon- orary theological degree from an Anglican College here. De- scribed as the first time such an award was made in North America and, possibly the world, the honorary doctorate of canon law was conferred on Rev. H. P. Kierans, S.J., of Halifax, N:S., at St. John's Col- lege annual convocation here. The college is affiliated with the University of Manitoba. Father Kierans was rector of St. Paul's College, Winni- peg, from 1958 until early this year, when he was trans- ferred to St. Mary'a Univer- sity in Halifax, a Jesuit insti- tution, as dean of studies. Commenting on the: award. the Rupert's Land News, Angli- can publication eL Winnipeg, said: "This is believed to be the first time that a Roman Catholic priest has accepted an Anglican theological d e g r e e anywhere in the world, and is known to be the first such oc- currence in-North Americaand Great Britain. : and beatified Father Luigi Guanella, the "incorrigible" priest of Coma, Italy, who died in 1915 . . .

To Charleston WASHINGTON (NC) -- Pope. Paul VI has named Bishop Ern- * est L. Unterkoefler to be bishop of Charleston. To the preseqt time, Bishop Unterkoefler has been Auxiliary to Bishop John J. Russell of Richmond. The appointment was an- nounced here by Archbishop Egidio Vagnozzi, Apostolic Dele- gate in the United States. Bishop Unterkoefler succeeds to a see left vacant by the transfer of Bishop Francis F. Reh to the office of rector of the North American College in Rome. Born in Philadelphia on Aug. 17, 1917, Bishop Unterkoefler was ordained for the Richmond . diocese at the university May 18, 1944, by Bishop John M..' I McNamara. Following ordination, he spent three years at the Catholic Uni- versity in the study of canon law. Nun Finds Anti Cancer Factor In Clams COLUMBUS, Ohio (NC) A Dominican nun at St. Mary of the Springs Col- .lege here is one of a handful of scientists whose work has laid the foundation for a possi- ble cancer cure. Sister Rosarii Schmeer, chair- man of the college biology de- partment, disclosed that a re- search method she developed over the past two years is cred- ited with making possible the discovery that clams contain a substance which successfully retards cancer in animals. Her activities were men- tloned in conjunction with a report on a tumor-preventive extract issued by Dr. C. P. Li of the National Institute of Health. Sister Rosarii--who has been active in cancer research since she was an undergraduate here 16 years ago--has had "amaz- ing" results with her clam ex- tract. Injected into diseased mice the powder, which has been dubbed Mercuric after the Latin , name of the clam, has been 60 to 100 per cent effective in in- hibiting tumors. '" Untreated mice implanted- with similar tumors died almost" immediately. It Sister explained that a "twist of fate" originally led to the,, use of clams in her work. Seeking a cheap supply of. animal life for growing tumors , in the laboratory she selected clams because they "are plan- ,, tiful and a part of the human . diet." She also noted that Mercene. has not yet been tested on human beings. ., "We're not ready for clini-  cal testing yet," she explained. "This method is strictly in the.. research stage." The key to further progress. in her work, Sister said, qs the, discovery of a natural produetL which will produce "the same regression, the same inhibition". in tumors.
