Often, that which we say is in conflict with how we perform. To avoid this conflict, the parents heard how the Religion Program approaches the word of God, the Persons of the Trinity, Prayer and the Sacraments. Research in psychology shows that a child learns by what he experiences. Therefore, if we are to teach our children about the Love God the Father has for us, we must give them an experence of real love and concern on the human level. The 10ve a parent shows toward his child is an extension of God's love in space and time. "Prayer also will have meaning and importance in the child's life if he experiences prayer being meaningful and important to the adult he contacts. Experience is far deeper and more permanent in the child's mind then being told he or she should pray. "Forgiveness from God our Father is an abstract, in- tellectual concept that must have roots in the human order in order for the Sacrament of Penance to be credible for the six-and seven-year old. Children hear the adults around them argue and become angry. Do they also hear these same adults forgiving each other? "The Word of God is a life- giving encounter with the Lord Jesus. Every lesson in the child's book is based on an excerpt from Sacred Scripture. Beginning with the child's experience, the student is led to see that the Word of God is operative in our lives today. The child is then invited to think about the Word of GOd in his heart (meditate) for a few minutes and encouraged to do this at home." Churi:h Image Held Confusing Manhasset, N. Y. (NC) -- The Church is going through an identity crisis caused by a "plurality of images," a Jesuit theologian, Father Avery Dulles, said here. He said that some persons have created the confusion by defining the Church in their own terms. He elaborated: -- Some see the Church as an "institution." -- Others view the Church as "the people of GOd." -- Still others regard it as "the mystical Body." He said that each image is valid and all are needed to point out the Church's aspects. "No one image can adequately define the Church," he com- mented. "The Church is too mysterious and divine to be reduced to a single image." GET HIP.// READ THE WANTfll00 San Francisco See's Liquid Assets Low San Francisco (NC)-- Liquid assets of the San Francisco archdiocese are at a "distur- bingly low level" and the chancery office's expenditures "consistently exceed current revenues," Auxiliary Bishop Norman F. McFarland said here. According to an official financial report released by the bishop, the archdiocese is operating at a $932,294 deficit as of last June 30. Bishop McFarland said that the archdiocese, in order to keep pace with economic growth, "has had to borrow $8,548,530 at the prime rate from the Bank of America due March 31, 1972." He said it would be unrealistic to try to clear archdiocesan debts by selling land held for future development or drawing on endowment funds or marketable securities. 8 Salvat Programs Scheduled Little Rock -- The "Salvat '72" Series will be presented in central Arkansas parishes eight times during the month of February. The following is a list of parishes and the Tracks they have selected in the 4-Track Adult Religious Education Program. February 1 -- "Vatican II and Beyond" -- St. John's, Hot Springs. February 9 - "Celebration Once and Forever" - St. Jude's, Jacksonville. February 15 - "Vatican II and Beyond" -- St. Joseph's, Pine Bluff.

"The Pill" Rapped As Dire Failure London (NC) - A leading authority on venereal disease claims that oral contraceptives have done more harm than thalidomide -- a tranquilizing medicine given to pregnant women that resulted in malformed babies. Dr. R. S. Morton, a World Health Organization consultant, wrote in a new book -- "Social Freedom and Veneral Disease" -- that the birth control pill for the single girl must stand condemned. Dr. Morton practices in Sheffield, an industrial city in England's Midlands. "The accumulation of cases of long-term individual misery and venereal disease as a direct result of its use is more calamitous than anything precipitated by the thalidomide," he said. Pill-prescribing for the single girls as a means of reducing illegitimacy in Britain has so far been a conspicuous failure, according to Dr. Morton. It: might even have con- tributed to the very trend it was designed to reverse by, in ef- fect, officially sanctioning premarital intercourse, he added. Retreat League To Meet Subiaco - The Subiaco Abbey Retreat League has scheduled its annual meeting for Saturday and Sunday, March 4-5, at Coury House here. Victor H. Roell, league president, said invitations have gone to all members of the league in addition to members of its Board of Directors and area coordinators. Promotion of increased in- terest in the Abbey retreat movement will be the main object of the meeting, Roell said. Benedictine Father Herbert Vogelpohl, the Abbey retreat director, announced this week that 65 retreats were conducted at Coury House during 1971, with a record 1,264 persons in attendance. Ten of the retreats, for C.Y.O. groups and high school students, were attended by 335 teenagers. Nine retreats for non-Catholics were attended by 285. The 1,289 total attendance during 1971 compared with 1,068 in 1970 and 1,010 in 1969, Father Herbert said. Ex-Nun Acquitted In Deaths of 13 Rome (NC) - A former nun who had been expelled from her congregation in 1945, has been acquitted of charges of causing the deaths of 13 mentally retarded children. But she was found guilty of maltreating children in her care. A Rome court sentenced Miss Maria Diletta Pagliuca to four years and eight months in jail for maltreatment of children in her privately conducted home known as "a nest for the angels of GOd." The court at the same time reduced her sentence by two years and, because she has already been in jail for two years and seven months awaiting final sentence, she will be free in February.

Kennan, a former University of Wisconsin professor.  ..... . /-- Ih.Cou ntrg "{/ II . 00.Cobbler J MI:N S SHOES: - Florsheim "k Rand - Bass -k Portage  Acme Boots -k Hush Puppies "FREE GOLD FISH SATURDAY JAN. 29th" plus BOZO THE CLOWN - 10 a.m. til 12 p.m. Bring All The Children |rkansas' largest Selection of Pets & Sepp/ies .,, COLONY WEST SHOPPING CENTER Corner of Rodney Parham Road & Breckenr|dge And now a word about H&R Block's competition. Because we think our competition represents more of a threat to you than it does to us, we're going to help you sort them out. Your Family The greatest people in the world. Most of the time. Unfortunately, most of the time doesn't include income tax-time. Because the last thing you need when you're doing your taxes is an aunt who took an accounting course just before she dropped out of college. Or a father who thinks how much money you make and what you do with it is something the rest of the family should know about. Your Neighbors You know the type. The mild-man- nered shoe salesman next door who suddenly turns into a mathematical genius just about the time income tax is due. He knows all the angles. Some of which even the Internal Revenue Service doesn't know about yet. And he's willing to share them with you, "Just to be neighborly." You Your own worst enemy. All year long you can't balance your cheek book, but that doesn't stop you. Armed with your W-2's, a few reams of paper and a couple of gallons of coffee you bravely attack that stack of forms. You may be taking deductions you're not entitled to, and entitled to deductions you're not tak- ing. So, should you be doing your own taxes? Us We're H & R Block, with over 6,000 conveniently located offices manned by thousands of specially trained tax preparers who cat, sleep, and drink in- come tax returns. People who set out to save you money and much of the time do it. The cost? Fees start at $5 and the average cost was under $12.50 for over 7 million customers we served last year. Furthermore, if your return is audited we will accompany you, at no extra cost, to the Internal Revenue Servi6e and explain how your return was pre- pared, even though we will not act as your legal representative. And everyone is eligible to receive our year 'round service which is covered by our one time fee. No extra charge for help with audits, estimates, or tax questions. We know the people we've just told you about will do your income tax return for less than we can but we don't think you can afford them. DONrlr LET AN AMATEUR DO H&R BLOCK'S JOB. EI00R Block. re,d,..
