I PAGE 2 GEORGIA BULLETIN THURSDAY, AUGUST 1, 196: TAX MONEY USED Urges Test Of Birth Program RALEIGH, N. C. (RNSj—The North Carolina Catholic, of ficial publication of the Raleigh diocese, featured a "guest edi torial” by a layman, which suggested that residents of the areas involved challenge in a court test the use of tax money for birth control programs. These voluntary programs are designed to limit the num ber of children born to parents on welfare rolls in Johnston, Robeson and Mecklenburg Counties. Indigent wives in these areas can request and receive contraceptive pills at county expense and all three programs are supported with local tax mone\. THE NORTH Carolina edi torial was Signed by Edward Dergast. Pointing out that wel fare officials "have contrasted the small cost of the pills to the much larger cost of monthly welfare payments," it stated that "the question each Catho- Seirans Discuss Pacem In Terris Two SerraClub members have conducted a series of two dis cussions on the encyclical Pa cem in Terris. During the two meetings the encyclical was discussed by Atlanta attorney McCreedy Johnson and bank ex ecutive Louis Fink, with Mr. Johnson discussing thefirsttwo parts and Mr. Fink covering the last three. A report on the Serra Club's international convention, held recently in San Francisco, was given by the club chaplain, Fr. Kiernan. lie in these three counties must ask himself is whether he is going to support such a program with his tax money.” "To a layman," the editorial continued, it seems that the principles recently called into play in the case of the South Carolina Seventh-day Adventist who was denied unemployment insurance because of her re fusal to work on Saturday are violated in the Robeson, Johnston and Mecklenburg County birth control program. "The Supreme Court judged that the Seventh-day Adventist was free to refuse work on Saturday and still qualify for unemployment benefits because of a matter of conscience. Would the same Court judge that a Catholic is free to refuse to pay tax support to a program that violates his conscience?" TAX MONEY to support a county birth control program "is a violation of the same principle," the editorial de clared, adding that "it would seem to be sufficient reason to bring these counties to court to challenge their violation of individual religious liberty in this matter of tax supported birth control." The program is voluntary, the editorial said, "but only for those who use it, not those who support it. Although the case of the Seventh-day Adventist in South Carolina and the Catho lic in Johnston County are far apart in matter, the principle which is being violated in each is the same. No agency of go vernment has authority to force an American to violate his con science in this precious area of religious freedom." JOHN MARSHALL UNIVERSITY 105 forrtft Av*„ N.f.

THIRD SESSION MAY MAY BE NEEDED Much To Be Done Before The Council Reconvenes ROME (RNS)--As the torrid summer heat descends upon Rome, an immense amount of preparatory work still remains to be done for the second ses sion of the Vatican Council which reconvenes on Sept. 29. Indeed, so great is the volume of work involved, that one hears talk of another Council session in Octover, 1964. AFTER THE close of the first session on Dec. 8, twelve of a projected 17 documents — "schema" — on different the mes approved by Pope John XX- III were sent to the bishops throughout the world in mid- May for their study and com ment. In a personal letter to the bishops on Feb. 2, the Pope had already asked that in each diocese a study group on the themes of the Council be estab lished. During the last week of the Council, Giovanni Battista Car dinal Montini, Archbishop of Milan — now Pope Paul VI — reported in Italia, Milan's Ca tholic daily, that the "material was immense, excellent but he terogeneous and uneven." He complained that it should have been edited and courageously re-arranged, that it lacked a central, archtectonic idea to give it cohesion and direction. A MAN in a hurry - pres sed, perhaps, by a premonition of his death — Pope John fixed a date for the resumption of the Council (Sept. 9) which many thought did not afford adequate time for preparation. Several cardinals urged the new Pope to postpone the Council to a much later date, but the suggestion was quickly rejected. Such a move would have disappointed the expectation of many mil lions of all faitbsrdt would also have been misinterpreted as a pause, if not a halt, in the ag- giornamento, the renewal and modernization of the Church, espoused by a universally mourned pontiff. However, if the coming ses sion is to go off with dispatch and thoroughness, the wisdom of the Holy Spirit will be need ed in full abundance, as well as the assiduity and persis tence of the new Pope. Neces sary, too, will be the effective collaboration of the commis sions preparing the agenda for the Council. BEFORE the close of the first session, Pope John issued regu lations for the work to be done between the sessions. He ap pointed a Coordinating Com mission under Amleto Giovanni Cardinal Cicognani, his Secre tary of State, composed of seven cardinals and six archbishops to supervise the radical revis ion and reduction of the origi nal agenda. Within the Coordinating Com mission, made up largely of prelates favoring Pope John's viewpoint, the areas of discus sion were divided and assigned and the Commission has already met for three sessions of in tensive work. In the meantime, the standing commissions of the Council have been meeting regularly in Rome under orders to abbre viate, re-edit, combine and drop everything unessential. The scope of their work is indicat ed by the fact that the Commis sion on the Liturgy had 13 sub commissions aiding it. Several of the commissions have had to join forces in re working themes of common in terest. Thus when the Council deadlocked on Nov. 21 on the discussion entitled "The Sour ces of Revelation," Pope John referred the schema to a mix ed commission composed of the Theological Commission under Alfredo Cardinal Ottaviani, Secretary of the Congregation of the Holy Office, and the Secre tariat for Promoting Christian Unity under Augustin Cardinal Bea. THE LAST of the 17 project ed schema is entitled "The Pre- scence and Action of the Church in the Modern World." Because it has had so many titles it is commonly known in Rome as "Schema 17". It owes its origin to a strong speech during the closing days of the first session in which Cardinal Suenens in sisted that, at bottom, there is a single, dominant theme for the bishops to debate — the Church "ad intra" and"ad ex tra" — the Church’s inner life and how to purify and streng then it, and the Church’s rela tions with the world and how to make these more effective. The Belgian cardinal was made responsible for elaborat ing the vision so magistrally adumbrated in the encyclical, Pacem in Terris. The drafting was assigned to the joint spon sorship of the Theological Com- Ernest Oglesby Mr. Ernest E.

Mrs* Allgood Mrs. Paul A. Allgoodj of 3368 Hardee Ave., Chamblee, died Monday after a short ill ness. Mrs. Allgood, the former Mary Louise Rappold, was a widow.

Albert said the funeral Mass Wednesday at Our Lady of the Assumption. Burial was in Crest Lawn Memorial Park. mission and that of the Lay Apostolate assisted by lay spe cialists. In its present 50-mimeo- graphed page form, Schema 17 has six chapters covering (1) The Christian conception of man and the foundation of the moral order, (2) Man in society, the problem of authority and free dom; (3) Marriage and the prob lems of population; (4) Human culture and progress, or hu manism in the atomic age; (5) Social justice and economic life; and (6) International order, peace, disarmament, aid to un derdeveloped countries, etc. IN PREPARATION for the second session of the Vatican Council, then, a vast mass of material has been "bulldozed" into more compact and logical form. The instructions of the Coordinating Commission have been clear and brutal: only ba sic principles should be formu lated, all else being left for de tailed directives and instruc tions to be issued later on be half of (but not with the autho rity of) the Council, or to be covered in the revision of the Code of Canon Law. This last possibility has oc casioned some disquietude. At the conclusion of an article, "Why a Revision of Canon Law" in the April 6 issue of Osser- vatore Romano, Vatican City newspaper, one reads: "Final ly, a glance at the list of the members of the Commission provides an understanding of the thought of the Sovereign Pontiff. The Commission is to translate into legislation the principles, the new orientation and the goals resulting from the Ecumenical Council. Mrs. Lambert Father Joseph P.

OBITUARIES ‘OLD MAN OF THE MOUNTAIN’ Fr. Murphy Of Our Lady Of The Mount, Memorial BY CLARENCE BRUCE FROM THE CHATTANOOGA TIMES "How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace." The folks who live down Look out Mountain, and around the Mount Olive community, find in these words of Isaiah a text which expresses their feel ing about Father John Murphy, of the Redemptorists, who died several days ago in Florida. Father Murphy, who called himself "an old mountainman" in a Christmas card of several years ago to Mrs. Eugene Fowl er, his "coadjutor" in minis tering to her neighbors down the mountain, was stationed at the church of Our Lady of the Mount. Mrs. Fowler tells this story of the beginning of the acqua intance of the priest with her and her neighbors in the Mount Olive community: Some years ago, Mrs. Fowler had worked to secure food and clothing for needy families in the community. The problem was a large one for folks not too well blessed with material things in normal times, and she had exhausted every source from which she could expect help—or thought she had. Someone suggested she go see the priest at the Catholic Church on the mountain. Mrs. Fowler didn’t even know a Catholic in those days, much less a priest, and it was with some trepida tion she eventually decided to call on Father Murphy. She was graciously received. She explained her miss ion, want -ed to show her credentials— but Father Murphy pushed the papers aside, and got to the point at once. Result, a small flood of food and clothing poured out and Mrs. Fowler saw that they got into the right hands. But that was only a begin ning. In time, the distribution of food and clothing became a regular Sunday afternoon event at the little Mount Olive com munity church—a memorial it self to another clergyman, the Rev. Bartow McFarland, who is buried in the churchyard. Later, when Father Murphy's health failed, the distribution took place up at Our Lady of the Mount. And then, Father Murphy was transferred. Before he left, he had ex pressed the wish to be buried in the cemetery adjoining the church where he had often pre ached to the mountain folk. So Mrs. Fowler and her hus band deeded him a "country- sized” lot in the cemetery, and it had been their fond wish that one day their friend would come back for his last rest w ith them. That apparently cannot be. But so fresh in their minds is the memory' of Father Murphy, and so touched have they been by news of his death, that they want to do the next best thing —erect a memorial to him on his lot in the mountain grave yard. A proposed design for Father Murphy's memorial has been drawn by the Fowlers’daughter, Miss Vivian Anne Fowler, who has studied art at the Univer sity of Chattanooga, and who continues her studies in medi cal technology at Erlanger Hos pital. Anyone who wishes to have more information about Father Murphy's memorial project may write Mrs. Fowler at Look out Mountain, Tenn., Route 1, or find her a mile off Georgia Highway 157, some seven miles south of the Lookout Mountain Hotel, on the Mount Olive Road. There is a sign along the high way identifying the road. MARYMOUNT, KANSAS Georgia Girl Wins Music Scholarship Peachtree Road Pharmacy Pick Up and Delivery Service CE 7-6466 4062 Peachtree Rd.

Appli- Ecuador Students Visit In Atlanta Fourteen students from Ecu ador, accompanied by Father John Porter, S. D.
