NOT OBLIGATORY English 40 Hours Said In Ohio CLEVELAND, Ohio (RNS)— Pastors in the Roman Catho lic Diocese of Cleveland were given permission to conduct Forty Hours devotion in Eng- lish.h. Archbishop Edward F. Ho- ban, in a letter to all priests, said the use of English was permissive and not obligatory. The Diocesan Liturgical Commission has prepared Eng lish translations of the tradi tional Pange Lingua pro cessional hymn, the litany of saints, and several psalms or dinarily said in Latin, ONLY the hymn, Tantum Er go, and several sung prayers will remain in Latin if the priests decide to use their Eng lish permission. Archbishop Hoban, in grant ing the privilege, said that five parishes in the Cleveland dio cese had used the English in experiments this past spring and the congregation and priests were happy with the results. FORTY HOURS devotion dates back at least 400 years. It consists of 40 hours of ex position of the Blessed Sacra ment. Usually a parish has the devotion once a year, open ing it on Friday and closing on Sunday, or opening it on Sun day and closing it on Tuesday. ATLANTA.

Priests, Minister To Discuss Council 'JUSTICE NOW’ Three Faiths Back Rights Legislation WASHINGTON (NC) — Spokesmen for three major Cat holic, Protestant and Orthodox, and Jewish agencies backed the administration’s civil rights program in a joint statement to a House Judiciary subcom mittee. They called for racial justice "now" and said that "what is right, both in terms of basic morality and in terms of our democratic ideals, must be granted without delay,” THEIR SUPPORT extended to the administration’s controver sial proposal to bar discrimin ation in privately-owned public accommodations, such as hotels and restaurants. They said the property right is not an abso lute right but must yield to hig her considerations. The statement was submitted to a Judiciary subcommittee, which is weighing the adminis tration’s requestfor civil rights legislation, by the social action departments of the National Council of Churches, the Nati onal Catholic Welfare Con ference, and the Synagogue Council of America. IT WAS presented by Dr. Eu gene Carson Blake, Stated Clerk (chief executive officer) of the United Presbyterian Church; (Father John F. Cronin, S. S„ assistant director of theNCWC Social Action Department; and Rabbi Irwin M. Blank of the Synagogue Council. The actual presentation was made by Dr. Blake. The religious leaders’ state ment stressed the "Urgency of legislative action now” to re medy racial Injustices. "We are in the midst of a so cial revolution,” they said, "Please God it will remain a social revolution and not de generate into civil chaos. But let us not understimate the de mand for justice regardless of color, race or national origin. "What is right, both in terms of basic moralityand in terms of our democratic Ideals, must be granted without delay. The time is past for tokenism or demands for endless patience. "We must move firmly, rapidly and courageously toward goals which our cons ciences assure us are right and ‘necessary. We can do no less for God and country.” THE religious leaders re viewed the Kennedy administra tion’s proposals for civil rights legislation point by point and endorsed each one. The administration program contains provisions to protect voting rights, bar discriminat ion in public accommodations, authorize the Attorney General to institute school desegregat ion suits, establish a commu nity relations service, ex tend for four years the Civil Rights Commission, prevent discrimination in public accom modations, authorize the Attor ney General to institute sc hool desegregation suits, estab lish a community relations ser vice, extend for four years the Civil Rights Commission, prevent discrimination in fede rally opportunity. On the controversial public accommodations proposal, the religious leaders noted that dis crimination in such facilities is barred by local laws in many places. Enactment of a Federal law for the same purpose "is not a drastic step," they said. "Nor is it an invasion of pro perty rights as some have clai med,” they added. "Neither law nor morality sanction the con cept of the absolute right of property. Both insist that the property owner must use his property in a socially respon sible fashion. "We have zoning laws, traffic ordinances, license and in spection requirements as well as scores of other rules and regulations that currently en force the concept of socially responsible ownership. If we can protect citizens against the injury caused by blaring tele vision sets, surely we can give equal protection against the deep affront and humila- tion caused by racial discrim ination in public accommod ations," THE RELIGIOUS leaders also declared that "'many church bodies” would support even broader civil rights measures than those contained in the ad ministration program. Specifically, they said, many religious groups would back a tough fair employment pract ices bill, as well as training, •counselingsand placement ser vices for "economically depri ved" persons. The religious leaders gave major emphasis to the need for immediate action on civil rights, echoing the call for jus tice "now” that has become a rallying slogan in current civil rights campaigns. US-Vatican Ties Asked In House WASHINGTON, D. C. (RNS)— An appeal for the "widest pos sible discussion" of a proposal that the United States extend diplomatic recognition to the Vatican by sending an ambassa dor to the papal court has been made here by Rep. Roman C. Pucinski (D.-Ill,), Mr. Pucinski placed in the Congressional Record the full text of the recent article by C. L. Sulzberger of the New York Times urging that the United States join other nations which maintain diplomatic missions at the Vatican. "THERE is considerable merit to his observation that the United States exchange en voys with tiny states through out the world of considerably less importance that Vatican City," Mr. Pucinski told the House. "SURELY, the Vatican today stands as one of the world's impressive forums for the ex change of views and ideas in man's unyielding search for peace and understanding," he declared. ARCHBISHOP PAUL J.
