PAGE 2 THE GUARDIAN, Vatican Approves U.$. Altar Missal Washington (NC) -- The National Conference of Catholic Bishops (NCCB) here said the Vatican has approved the final English version of the Roman Missal. As a result, for the first time in almost a decade priests in the United States will again have a single, completely updated altar missal for the whole liturgical year. It will include prayers for special feasts and holidays in this country. It will not, however, involve any changes for the people par- ticipating at Mass. The translation, prepared by the International Commission on English in the Liturgy (ICEL), was praised by Ar- chbishop Annibale Bugnini, secretary of the Vatican's Congregation for Divine Worship. In a letter to Cardinal John Krol of Philadelphia, president of the NCCB, Archbishop Bugnini said he was taking the occasion of the Vatican's ap- proval "to express the congratulations of this congregation to all who have labored to produce a translation of use to the whole of the English- speaking world. A number of publishers in the United States are preparing sacramentaries (altar missals) for use in this country. It is estimated that the sacramentaries will be available by early summer. The Order of Mass appeared in Latin in 1969 and was ap- proved in English translation by the NCCB and confirmed by the Vatican that same year.

I am writing this letter in regard to the Letters to the Editor published in the February 15 issue of The Guardian, in reference to the United States signing the Genocide Treaty. I was not shocked by the letters written against the signing of this treaty, but I was disappointed in the obivous lack of knowledge in regard to the United States commitment in the United Nations. Anyone who has taken the time to research information on the United Nations Court would know that Article 36 of the Statute of the United Nations Court defines the jurisdiction of the Court as comprising "all eases which the parties refer to it and all matters specially provided for in the Charter of the United Nations or in treaties and conventions in force." Furthermore, these persons would also know that the United States, along with other great powers, protects itself against being adjudicated by the United Nations Court in domestic "disagreements" by a declaration of reservations. This declaration reads : . .. The United States of America recognizes as compulsory ipso fact() and without special agreement .... the jurisdiction of the International Court of Justice in all legal disputes... Provided, that this declaration shall not apply to a. disputes the solution of which the parties shall entrust to other tribunals by virtue of agreements already in existence or which may be concluded in the future; or b. disputes with regard to matters which are essentially within the domestic jurisdiction of the United States of America; or c. disputes arising under a multilateral treaty, unless (I) all parties to the treaty af- fected by the decision are also parties to the case before the Court, or (2) the United States of America specially agrees to jurisdiction .... This information can be found in the Department of State Bulletin. Vol. 15 (September 8, 1946), pp. 452ff. I am an American citizen, a native of Arkansas, and I read The Guardian every week, so I am not some oulsider or member of the supposedly "('om m unist-controlled United Nations." But i do see a need for the people who write to have some factual knowledge of the subject they are defending or proclaiming "a fraud and a hoax." It is also sad that America would have to fear adjudication by the United Nations Court in regal:d to its history of discrimination against minorities. But America has no need to fear signing the MARCH 15, 1974 Portuguese p riest , Sentenced to Jail Lisbon, Portugal (NC) -- Father Mario Pais de Oliveira, who has criticized Portugal's wars in its African territories, has been sentenced to a month in jail or a $90 fine for "inciting o:. public disobedience..,"  .... The charges against the priest, who is pastor at q Macieira de Lixa in the Oporto diocese, were related to ser- mons criticizing Portugal's efforts to suppress by force movements seeking the in- dependence of its African territories and what he called "inhuman conditions" in some Portuguese factories. Father Pais, whose political rights were suspended for three years by the court, has already spent several months in jail awaiting trial. He plans to appeal the sentence. W. Memphis Sets Pro-Life Program West Memphis -- A Right-to- Life program, sponsored jointly by the Right-to-Life Committee of Crittenden County, West Memphis Council No. 5804, Knights of Columbus, and St. Michael's parish Catholic Youth Organization, will be presented this Sunday, March 17, at 7:30 P.M. in the Eugene Woods Civic Center here. In connection with the area's growing pro-life movement, Mayor Tilden Rodgers of West Memphis has proclaimed next week "Right-to-Life Week." The Civic Center program, designed to enlighten the public on the effects and probable consequences of recent liberalization of abortion laws, will feature Dr. Breen Bland, a prominent Memphis physician, discussing the medical aspects of the issue, Father Thomas Donahue of Memphis discussing the religious aspects, and representatives of the local Right-to-Life organization. A film, "Abortion, How It Is," will be presented by Mrs. Peggy Grisamore., after which there will be discussion of the nature and purposes of the pro-life movement. Pro-life literature, posters and bumper stickers will be distributed. Michael Freyaldenhoven will be master of ceremonies. U.S. Prelate Gets New Vatican Post Vatican City (NC) -- Pope Paul VI has named Archbishop Joseph Bernardin of Cincinnati a member of the Pontifical Commission on Social Com- munications. The archbishop, chairman of the U.S. Catholic Conference Committee on Communication, replaces Bishop John May of Mobile, Ala., on the pontifical commission. He also replaced .Bishop May as chairman of the USCC commission. protected ourselves against being brought before the "'Comm unist-controlled United Nations." We have no fear of being judged by the world, but we should fear the Last Judgment. Thank you. Sr. Marie-Bernarde Miller, I{.S.M. Our Lady of Mercy Convent From ttle Managing Editor's Desk.. It's sad to watch a great nation die, but it's sadder still when its peo- ple are so dis- tracted by their frantic pursuit of worldly hap- piness that they fail to recognize the evidence of its approaching death. The United States once was the well-spring of hope for the world. Its mushrooming population, fed by millions of immigrants and a spiralling birth rate, utilized the God- given freedoms it offered to make it the greatest nation on earth. Today, with immigration cut to a trickle and the birth rate tobogganing ever lower, the American people are abusing their liberty by violating God's first command to man: "Be fertile and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it..." Not only is the nation's birth rate spiralling downward with no indication that the decline will be reversed, but the number of births already has gone below the level necessary to maintain a steady population by replacing those who die. The Census Bureau says 2.1 children per family are needed to maintain a fixed level of population, but American families now are having only 1.9 children. And the trend is downward.
