Diocesan Superintendent of Schools The thirty-nine Catholic schools in Arkansas will join Catholic schools throughout the nation in celebrating National Catholic Schools Week from Jan. 31 to Feb. 6. This year's theme for Catholic Schools Week, "The Good News In Education: Catholic Schools," is a theme with a clear double meaning. Catholic schools are "Good News" to students attending them, their parents, their church and the communities of which they are a part. A Catholic education has traditionally meant -- and continues to mean -- academic excellence in a caring com- munity. The talent that is developed and the values nurtured in Catholic schools contribute to a strong and just society. Catholic schools make many contributions to. many people in our contemporary world. They are truly "Good News" in many ways. But central to the purpose of Catholic schools is of course another kind of "Good News," the unique message of hope, trust and "love which they share with the young people from the beginning to the end of every school day, the'Good News of Jesus Christ. This news gives a view of life and death that is different from the world view. According to the reports sent to the Diocesan School Office, .the diocesan averages on the SRA Achievement tests that elementary students took this fall are well above the See Schools on Pg. 3 CATHOLIC SCHOOLS WEEK Jan. 31-Feb. 6. 1982 GOOD NEWS IN EDUCATION : CATHOLIC SCHOOLS In its noblest sense, education can be defined as the influence the mother and the father have on the child. This influence begins even before the child is born. Of a child, it is said, "He looks like his father," or "She takes after her mother." Many years ago, both parents and the Church realized that mothers and fathers need the assistance and the help of a school system. To increase religious knowledge and religious formation, the Catholic school system is a splendid asset to the family and to the Church. The good news for education in Arkansas is the Catholic schools. Our thanks during Catholic Schools Week go to the parents, children, teachers and all associated with this noble work. May the good news of Catholic schools prompt us to live worthy of our heritage all the days of our life. Your friend, Andrew J. McDonald Bishop of Little Rock No Vanity Held Way To Peace By Karl Christ Little Rock - "America should project her traditional message of love, hope and respect for others and not the one that is hated and despised by the Third World," Moorhead C. Kennedy, Jr., summarized in the first of the three talks in the 17th annual Ecumenical Lecture Series last week. The former Iranian hostage and Foreign Service member spoke to one of the largest, if not the largest, crowds ever to attend one of the lectures sponsored by the Ecumenical Lecture Series Committee of Christ the King parish. Addressing the general problem of world peace and how religion relates to it, Bishop's Office 2415 N. Tyler Little Rock, Ark. Dear Friends in Christ: The month of February is Catholic Press Month.

Asking God to bless you and your families, I remain, Your friend, 4, Andrew J. McDonald Bishop of Little Rock Kennedy said that peace is the  II* '" Center great religions. "But.how successful is Is Opened at CHS religion in bringing peace?" he said. "The track record isn't very good. Religion and violence have gone together Little Rock -- Catholic High inches in width. The printer is all the way from the Crusades to Northern Ireland." The originator of the Cathedral Peace Institute at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City said he discussed this with a United Nations official. "The official said, 'Religion is Kennedy Speaks ridiculous. It causes wars.'" Kennedy said religions reject violence and r cited passive resistance, pacifism, marches and sit-downs against nuclear arms, etc. "If we had no hate in our hearts, peace would come without pledges of any kind," he stated. "We had peace movements in the 1930's," Kennedy went on. "However, they didn't 'concern the rights of others but only that the participants wanted to be left in peace." He said human nature is the base of all conflict. "Rage, fanaticism, greed and violence are not religion. Religion is being used by persons and groups. Each person or government believes God is on their side." Kennedy, in one of his rare references to his im- prisonment, said the revolutionary needs an ideology. "When we were captives, our Moslem guards would make us watch them pray.

This is a fourth-generation unit first available in 1981. It employs the latest in ad- vances in computer technology. Massive storage capability is provided with two disk drives using record- like magnetic disk cartridges. These tisks are about 18 in- ches in diameter and hold information equal to a file cabinet. CHS has eight terminals connected to the computer. Terminals are small desk-top units which look like a combination black and white TV and electric typewriter. These are used by persons to communicate with the computer, to act like a typewriter or to perform calculations like a calculator. To prepare reports on paper and to have a permanent copy of important work, there is a computer-directed printer. The printer uses paper from a stack of folded continuous paper which can be almost 15 very fast and can print an See CH8 on Pg. 3 Official Announcement V?ALDloeese of S.TL The Most Reverend Bishop announces the following clerical appointment: Effective Jan. 31 Father Joseph H.
