PAGE 8 THE GUARDIAN, FEBRUARY 15, 1974 Ar <ansas CYOs Raise $4,0 12 for Leukemia Victims Little Rock -- Thirty-one Catholic Youth Organizations throughout Arkansas more than doubled their previous record of financially Aiding Leukemia- Stricken American Children (ALSAC), during the 1973 drive. With the final tabulations arriving at the state CYO of- rices here last week, the 31 CYOs contributed a record $4,012 to the ALSAC program at St. Jude's Hospital for Children, Memphis. Father Joseph L. Pallo, diocesan CYO moderator, was "flabbergasted" by the amount the teen-agers collected in their third year in the program. He attributed the zeal a great deal to Danny Thomas, who initiated the ALSAC program at St. Jude's, by his speaking to CYO members at the national convention last fall in In- dianapolis. The teen-agers of St. Michael's parish CYO at West Memphis led the way, collecting nearly a quarter of the total amount -- $950 - through a roadblock and solicitation campaign. Slovak-Carlisle, the 1972 winner, finished second with $565. St. Paul's CYO from Pocahontas was third with $342. Helena, in its first year in the campaign, was fourth with $272. Hot Springs was right behind in fifth spot with $270. Five more CYO's collected more than $100 apiece. DeQueen, the last unit to report, collected $132. St. Patrick's CYO, North Little Rock, forwarded $125; Lake Village $117; Rogers $113, and Forrest City $107.

The decision was announced in a brief Vatican communique which said the "Holy Father, after considering the pastoral problems of the Archdiocese of Esztergom and after an ample exchange of correspondence" with the cardinal, had decided "to declare the aforementioned diocese vacant..." At the same time, the Pope appointed a new apostolic administrator for Esztergom who is directly responsible to the Holy See. In a letter to Cardinal Mind- szenty, Pope Paul spoke of "the many examples of virtue which you have given the entire Catholic family for so many years." The "grieveous sufferings'! endured by the cardinal under the communist regime were described by the Pope as a "crown of thorns., no less precious than your faithfulness to the Church of Christ." Cardinal Mindszenty issued a statement in Vienna Feb. 7, saying he had not voluntarily resigned from office. Vatican press spokesman Federico Alessandrini read a comment on the cardinal's statement which said, "It is exact, and the communique made public the same day (Feb. 5) does not conceal it, that the Pope, after having expressed with confidence his thoughts to the venerated archbishop through a repeated exchange of personal letters, did not wish to burden the soul of that ar- chbishop with a decision which he himself (Mindszenty) did not feel able to make and which His Fort Smith Nurses Promoted Mrs. Jean Brooks, R.N., seated, is the new clinical dir of nurses at St. Edward Mercy Hospital, Fort Smith, has been succeeded as the hospital's area supervis nursing by Sharon Rogers, R.N., pictured with her a Mrs. Brooks succeeds Mrs. Mary Koenigseder, R.N., recently retired.

The Vatican press office published the letter written by Pope Paul to the cardinal, dated Jan. 30, 1974, in which the Pope declared: "On the eve of the publication of those important measures which we have adopted after having evaluated the cir- cumstances at length, solely in view of the pastoral interest of several dioceses of Hungary -- among which the Church of Ezstergom is outstanding -- we keenly desire to reiterate to you, our most beloved and venerated brother, our great benevolence and fatherly esteem." welcomed, Mrs. Renda said. hospital administrator.
