Information concerning the convention, to be held at the Little Rock Convention Center Exposition Hall, was mailed to parish CYO's throughout the diocese earlier this week. Miss Vivian Svestka, state CYO president, and Father Joseph L. Pallo, diocesan CYO advisor, made the announcement. This will be the first time in seven years the state CYO convention has been held in Little Rock, the last being in 1967. The largest attendance at any previous convention was in Hot Springs in 1969 when almost 900 were registered. The CYO convention will be held outside Little Rock in 1975, Father Pallo said. Rooms for 480 persons in the adjacent Camelot Inn and for 600 at the nearby Holiday Inn Downtown have been reserved for the convention. By being able to obtain the Convention Center and room accommodations, CYO members from the Greater Little Rock parishes will be required to stay in convention hotels with out-of-town CYO members, Father Pallo said. This is being done, Father Pallo said, because of the in- tensiveness of the convention schedule which "really won't permit those attending to go home." The schedule includes a midnight Mass. An equally intensive schedule is provided for the chaperones, Father Pallo emphasized. Catholic Young Adults will hold their convention con- currently with the CYO, but the Lactate Medalist James A. Farley, above, internationally known Catholic layman, has been chosen for the 1974 Laetare MedM, the University of Notre Dame's highest honor. Farley was Postmaster General under President Franklin Roosevelt and has been active in Democratic Party politics since 1911. "Gentleman Jim" Farley is 85 years old. number attending is not ex- pected to swell appreciably from last year because tests are being given at that time by colleges and universities. Father James Mancini is working with the CYA on their" aspects of the convention. Father PaUo said a 120-page convention program and yearbook, compiled and edited by the state CYO officers, will be given to each person at- tending. Highlight of the convention will be the Saturday, May 4, Bishop-youth dialogue with His Excellency Bishop Andrew J. McDonald. Vocations will be stressed. A half-dozen Little Rock seminarians, headed by George Murdaugh, will return from Holy Trinity Seminary on the University of Dallas campus to conduct a commitment workshop for young men. At the same time, Sister Freddie Miller, formerly a CYO member from Little Rock, and now with the Mercy Sisters at St. Louis will lead a workshop for the young women attending. Father Ernie Bowen, Denise Luckett of Texarkana and Denis Ingram of Pine Bluff will head a prayer workshop. George Lucas and Chris Bailey, both of Little Rock, will conduct a Search workshop. Craig Knox and the Greater Little Rock CYO of- ricers will direct a parish CYO leadership workshop. Capt. George Weidl of Little Rock Air Force Base and Mandy Tucker Little Rock.
