The writer is Dr. Erwin L. McDonald, for- mer editor of the Arkansas Baptist Newsmagazine.) Unexpectedly, I came upon some of the facts back of the supposedly true story portrayed by the controversial motion picture, "The Exorcist," as I attended the annual meeting of the S9uthern Baptist Press Association last week in New Orleans. Speaking to the association at its initial session, with the executive secretaries of the various Southern Baptist state conventions, was Archbishop Phillip Hannan of New Orleans, of the Roman Catholic Church. Archbishop Hannan, .who had. been invited to the meeting to bring official greetings, con- sented" to speak on "The Exorcist" at the. request of some present. Hannan was on the staff of his Chancery Office in Washington in the late 1940s, when tle original case on which the current movie purports to be based took place. He said that he had intimate knowledge of the original case and that the original story "was a beautiful restoration of the Easter story -- the triumph of good over evil." He describes the book and motion picture by the same title as "a travesty on the original story." He said "they pander to all the worst instincts, giving the devil the center place for so long you think he owns center stage." The original priest was not killed, Hannan said, and "did not suffer but experienced complete peace and rest at the end of the event, in contrast to William Blatty's popularized version of "The Exorcist." The original subject of the exorcism, a boy rather than a girl as portrayed in Blatty's book, is now 34 years old, married and with children, living in a Virginia suburb of Washington, Hannan said. Reporting that he had seen the full, confidential report on the original exorcism, Hannan said that psychiatrists had exhausted all efforts to help the boy and that hospital treatment had also failed by the time contact was first made with the Washington Chancery. Contrary to Faustian tales, Hannan said, the boy had not "sold his soul" to the devil, but "strove against the devil and was successful." The true story is a great success story -- a story of hope, Hannan said. The archbishop said the Chancery Office in Washington has made no followup on the case, due to its nature as a personal event. He commended the press, which he said has learned the names of the original participants, for "great' exercise of statesmanship and honor in refusing to reveal them and invade the privacy of their lives."

Ban Jailed Priest From Offering Mass Birmingham, England (NC) - - Archbishop George Dwyer of Birmingham has criticized the decision of British prison authorities not to allow a priest serving a 12-year sentence to celebrate Mass in prison. The priest, Father Patrick Fell, 32, former assistant at All Souls' Church in Coventry, in the Birmingham archdiocese, was found guilty in November of conspiracy to damage buildings and of taking part in the control and management of the Coventry unit of the outlawed Irish Republican Army LIRA). His conviction is being appealed. He and six others had been arrested in connection with explosions last March in central London that killed one man and injured more than 200 persons. who earlier conducted a Rosary A. J.
