14--THE GUARDIAN JANUARY, 28, 1966 Everyman's Family 4 Million Babies; 10 Million Cars By Msgr. John C. Knott (Director, Family Life Bureau, N.C.W.C.) It was good old Charlie :Brown, one of the lead charac- ters in tile Peanuts cartoon slxil), who uttered these words of wisdom: "The trouble with dedicated people is that they ]lave I)o sense of llunlor." There are all sorts of dedi. eated people committed to all sorts of causes. Without ques. tioning their sincerity one can sumetimes womler whether a sense of the ridiculous or a ca, pacity to laugh at themselves might not offer a more bal. anced solution to some of their anxieties. This reaction occurred after reading a newspaper account of a recent two-day symposium at the University of California Medical Center. Participants included medical men, lawyers, political scientists, economists, a publisher or two and presum- ably some ordinary citizens, who are always necessary if on- ly to be suitably impressed by the experts. TIIE SUBJECT of concern was the so-called population ex- plosion as it relates to the Am- erican scene. Most of tile speak- ers apparently worked on the assumption that tbe United States is faced with the threat OAK FOREST DRUG STORE THE REXALL STORE George Woihoski, owner.manager Member Good Counset Parish 12th & FAIR PARK BOULEVARD Nocturnal Rite Set at St. Patrick's N.

It is hard to prove that the expanding American economy cannot take care of these new people or does not in fact need them in order to maintain its steady growth. Certainly Amer- ican agriculture, plagued (if that is the word) with a con. tinued surplus can more than adequately feed them and a good part of the world. The thing that bothered tile dedicated participants at tile California symposium was that the quality of life among lilt- man beings now living is being threatened by the onslaught of countless hordes of the as-yet- unborn.

Westminster Abbey By Jesuit Priest Draws I,ondon (E) -- An appearance scribed as mainly by a Catholic priest in the pul- ern Ireland.

One of them The speaker was Father Arnold I'erking, gem Thomas Corbishley, S.J., former tar of the National Jesuit superior in London, who Protestants, went was discussing Christian unity gue with Father as part of a week's unity ob- was bustled out by scrvance centering at the 900- cials as he shouted:i year-old church, for the faith of our Father Corbishley was the Queen!" second Catholic priest to speak in the abbey in four centuries. Last year an appearance by a l lTerra--;n London Benedictine, Father Edmund Jones, changed the Called pattern that began in 1559 when Elizabeth I dissolved the Benedictine community at tile abbey which passed into Angli- can control. Tile demonstrators were de- tion is caused by the irrespon- sible practices of manufactur- ing industries is not adverted to. If there are serious traffic problems in our major urban .areas again their obvious an- swer is to eliminate people. Yet last year saw the birth of less than four million babies, the lowest in ahnost a decade. In that same year tile automobile industry manufactured almost ten million cars, tile highest in history. The answer would rath- er seem to be not birth control, but car control. To insure the quality of life among peol)le now living cer- tain recommendations w e r e made by the sytnposiunl parti- cipants. One was the establish- ment of a panel of scientists and economists h) determine just how big the country should he allowed to grow. Since these experts are used to dealing with statistics they could be very objective and not be both- ered by Stlch human considera- tions as married love and a de- sire for children. AS ONE SPEAKER slated, people should use contracep- tives "not merely to prevent tile hirth of unwanted children, hut also to prevent tim birth of deeply wanted even hmgcd-for children. The time may not he fat" off when some societies may find themselves forced to tax families for more than a minimal nunher of off-spring." Citizen committees w e r e urged to encourage smaller families and an extensive ad- vertising campaign was recom- mended to NIIow that "large families are not the American ideal." It would he a safe gu(,ss to say that many of th(, partici- pants at the California symposi- um would he very concerned professionally with civil rights and I)crsonal lil)crties. Yet their own feat" of life leads them to reconllnond nleasurcs which are destructive of the most sacred of personal rights -- the right to marry and re- l)roduce.
