V I PAGE 2 GEORGIA BULLETIN THURSDAY, JULY 25. 1963 INEFFICIENT? Australians Move Toward Aid To Private Schools SYDNEY, Australia, (NC) — A new stance by Australia’s dominant political party, offer ing broader government assis tance to students in non-public schools, may come out of a parr/ conference later this month. However, the meeting has been put under a shadow through statements suggesting ineffice- ency in schools run by relig ious bodies. THE Australian Labor party will meet at Perth, in Western Australia, beginning July 29. It has been disclosed that the party's education committee will recommend aid to private schools in the matters of science equipment, textbooks, bus rides and scholarships to secondary school pupils. This is a significant change in Labor party Policy. Oppon ents are already voicing strong challenges to it, saying for example that science facllitites in the state schools must first be brought up to effective stand- Obscene Mail Arrests Boom WASHINGTON, (NC)-Arrests and convictions for violation of mall laws against obscenity set a record during 1963, Post master General J. Edward Day announcec. In releasing the summary (July 19) of law enforcement action against obscenity for the fiscal year ended June 30, Day said: “If further evidence were needed that the proper avenue to follow in enforcing the mail- ability laws is criminal action rather than administrative pen alties, I believe these statis tics should lay the question to rest." The year-end report indi cates 761 arrests for violation of the mail laws against obs cenity during fiscal 1963. This is an increase of 25.8 per cent over the number of arrests in 1962, and a 96 per cent in crease over arrests in 1960, the last full year in which ad ministrative procedures were used in an effort to curtail use of the mails to transmit obscene matter. Day ordered abandonment of administrative action and a stepped-up enforcement of the criminal statues within weeks after assuming office in 1961. ards before there can be any sharing with private school students. Meanwhile, Archbishop Dan- el Mannix, 99-year-old head of the Melbourne archdiocese, has taken to task the Labor party top Parliamentary leaders, A. A. Calwell and G. A. Whit- lam, for statements imputing inefficency to the Church’s school system in Australia. CALWELL declared in an interview last month in London that a solution to Australia’s school aid controversy was complicated by the fact that direct aid to private schools was unconstitutional and by what he called the inefficiency of many Church schools. Whitlan told and Australian audience recently that governments should not perpetuate the inefficiency of mulitiple sys tems of education. Archbishop Mannix respon ded to thes statements by decl aring that recent revelations of low standards in Australian public life should stir the gover nment to asssist religious syst ems of education, not weaken them by ciriticism. He said the criticism amounted to generalizations that were un true and would be widely resen ted. Rabbi's Reception ST. PAUL, Minn, (RNS) — Archbishop Leo Binz of the St. Paul Roman Catholic archdio cese and several priests of the archdiocese attended a recep tion for a newly-ordained rabbi at Mount Zion temple here. ST. pivs x A summary of the present Catholic school situation in Australia has been made this month by Brother Ronald Frogarty, F. M. S., who is con sidered the top authority on Australian Catholic school his tory. He said: “The contemporary position of our schools poses great pro blems. In Catholic primary schools the situation is bad. There is overcrowding and a great strain on teachers. Catholic secondary schools were once staffed solely by religious orders, but they are now incapable of keeping pace with indefinite expansion. With out some help they are becom ing exclusive. The ultimate re sult will be to close the doors on the working class, and this would be a disaster. “Our system of Catholic ed ucation, more than any other single institution, has made the Church what it is in this coun try. It has elevated the Catholic people from a position of social inferiority and fashioned them into an alert, socially active class.’’ Brother Ronald said there are three possible solutions to the present difficulties. The first— to let the Catholic schools die— he called “a travesty of the tradition entrusted to us." The second—to close either the Catholic primary or secondary schools—would pose overwhel ming practical problems, in his view. “The best solution is to cling to what we have, to expand on it and to keep pace with the state schools," he recommended. First Alumnus Is Buried Here St. Pius X Catholic High School Alumni and students were saddened by the first death of a student, when Airman 3/c Patrick A.

CHAPLAIN DIES VATICAN CITY, (NC)—His Holiness Pope Paul VI gave the first general audience of his reign to more than 7,000 peo ple in St. Peter's Basilica and spoke to them in five langu ages, including English. “You are the first to offer to Us this meeting of a beau tiful and numerous multitude which reflects in its number and even more in its variety that which makes up the cath olicity, that is, the universal ity of the Church”, the Pope said to his visitors. POPE Paul was carried in from the side aisle on his port able throne. He circled the main altar of the church. As he moved slowly he lifted his arms high in blessing to those on both sides of the aisles. They re turned his gesture warm cheers and applause. After he left the portable throne he mounted the steps of the altar and took his place on another throne facing the Altar of the Chair at the back of the apse. The tone of the audience was immediately set when it was announced that it would begin with the Sign of the Cross. POPE Paul recited the words of the Sign of the Cross and the assembled thousands traced it with the same slow motions that the Pope used. He then deli vered an identical speech in Italian, French, German, Eng lish and Spanish. The text as follows: of his address is “Most dear sons and dau ghters, one can call this the first general audience of Our pontificate.

You are welcome and We bless you. “WE hope that this meeting will leave In your spirits two spiritual impressions, both of which are truly Roman. The first is the fatherhood of the Vicar of Christ. Truly our heart is open to you all to receive you, to comfort and to bless you, We say to you with St. Paul: ’Our lips are open to you...Our heart is wide open to you.’ (II Corinthains, VI, 11) “And the second impression Is that of brotherhood, which joins all of you here with the single bond of faith and of charity. In regard to this St. Paul also teaches us: ’All are one in Christ Jesus.’ (Galati ans, III, 28) “We wish We had the time and means to salute each group and every person but it is not physically possible. We limit Ourselves to use those langu ages which We can to give a paternal greeting.” After finishing his formal speech the Pope read out the list of the Italian and Spanish pilgrimages present. His first greeting was to the participants in an international Dominican congress of the Rosary who have been meeting in Rome* After mentioning the name of each group Pope Paul was cheered, most loudly by a group of about 700 Italian soldiers, who sent up a shout and then three cheers that filled the vast basilica. MSGR, William Carew, of the English desk of the Secretariate of State, read the names of the American and English-speaking groups present. The first of these were the priests from the North American College who were to be ordained on the following day. Pope Paul motioned to Mon signor Carew to bend over, and gave him the following message to be translated into English: “The Pope wishes to give all of you His special blessing.” Among the other pilgrimages mentioned was an Italo-Ameri can one from Boston, and the Pope again interrupted to re- STILL IN REFUGE call that he had visited Bos ton three years ago and that he extended his special blessings to the group from that city. Similar lists were read by Spanish and German prelates of the Secretariate of State. After the groups were men tioned the Pope rose to give his blessing. All knelt as he pornounced the words, turning slowly from his extreme left to his extreme right, using broad, graceful gestures sli ghtly reminiscent of Pope Pius XIL Lebanon Honors Scranton Bishop SCRANTON, Pa., (NC)—Bis hop Jerome D. Hannan of Scran ton was honored here by the Le banon government for his fa therly care of the Lebanese peo ple in his diocese. He received Lebanon’s deco ration of the National Order of the Cedar at a ceremony in the chancery office. Father George J. Webby, pastor of St. Ann’s Maronite church in Scranton, presented the award. More Americans In The Vatican CAMDEN, N.J., (NC)—Arch bishop Celestine J. Damiano, back from an audience with His Holiness Pope Paul VI, said “there were never more per sons from the U. S. working in papal diplomatic circles” than when Cardinal Montlni was Va tican Substitute Pro-Secretary of State for Ordinary Affairs. ’’The present Pope was very influential in bringing non-Ita lians into diplomatic and sec retariat positions,” said the Archbishop, who is Bishop of Camden, on his return from Rome. THE CAMDEN prelate, who was Apostolic Delegate to South Africa when the future Pope was an official in the Vatican Sec retariat of State, said in re ferring to the Pope: “I have never seen him more relaxed in the many years I have known him.” ‘No Mindszenty Accord’ - Rome VATICAN CITY, (NC)—The Vatican has denied the truth of reports that an agreement has been reached on the future of Jozsef Cardinal Mindszenty. The Hungarian Primate has been living in asylum in the U.S. legation in Budapest since 1956. He took refuge there after Soviet troops quelled the anti communist uprising which had freed him for a few days from the prison where he was ser ving a life sentence. Orthodox See Better Relations MONTREAL, (NC)—ARus sian Orthodox leader voiced op- •timismhere about the chances of improved relations between his church and the Roman Ca tholic Church. Archbishop Ioann, Russian Orthodox Exarch.of North and South America, said “spring” may have arrived in the area of Catholic-Russian Orthodox relations. HE COMMENTED on the mat ter at a press conference held by five Russian Orthodox dele gates to the fourth international meeting of the World Council of Chruchs’ Faith and Order Commission. The Russian Or thodox Church joined the World Council in 1961. Asked about chances for closer relations between Catho lics and Russian Orthodox Archbishop Ioann replied: “In Russian we have a say ing that swallows are the first sign of spring. “Now two swallows have gone south—two Russian priests at tended the Second Vatican Coun cil —and two swallows have gone north—two Vatican observers are now in Moscow participating in the celebrations marking the golden jubilee of the episcopal consecration of Patriarch Alexis. MAYBE THIS is a sign of spring.” The Archbishop also said the desire for religious unity is strong in all sections of the Russian Orthodox Church. Bishop Vladimir of Geneva noted that he had attended the funeral of Pope John XXIII and the coronation of His Holiness Pope Paul VI. “When we heard that the Vatican was sending two re presentatives to Moscow we were very happy,” he said. “We hope that this particular action will help our relations with our brethren from the Third Order Holds Congress LORETTO, Pa., (NC)—The North American Federation of the Third Order of St. Francis will hold its annual youth con gress at St. Francis College here from August 12 to 15. Some 700 delegates are ex pected to attend the congress. Its theme is "Spiritual Re birth Through St. Francis.” Roman Catholic Church even further.” Questioned as to the freedom of churchmen in Russia to cri ticize conditions they consider wrong, Archpriest Vitaly Boro voy, a theology professor at Leningrad Academy, said: "WHENEVER and whereever possible we confess our Chris tian convictions. Our faithful have given during the years many examples of their devo tion to Christ. In this they could be examples to other churches. Those of other churches should ask themselves how they would'have acted under these special circumstances. If they thought they could do better, they should come and show us." Msgr. O’Connor Receives Honor Rt. Rev. Msgr. P. J. O’ Connor, pastor of St. Thomas More Church in Decatur and director of vocations for the Archdiocese of Atlanta, has been awarded a testimonial cer tificate by the St. Dismas Holy Name Society of Canon City, Colorado.

A wri ter for the Holy Name Journal, Mr. Fink will address the In ternational Holy Name Convent ion in Bluffalo in August. In October, he will address the Convention of the Miami Dio cesan Holy Name Convention at North Palm Beach. ‘Bur Your SWx From M*X” MAX MEfZEL, Ownlr MAX'S MEN'S SHOPS 54*4 Peaeftiree Industrial oiva.
