Because of this and because of its use of exploitative nudity, the film has been classified O, morally offensive, by the U. S. Catholic Conference. The Motion Picture Association of America has rated it R, restricted. ! LOVE YOU (Atlantic) ... This vapid and pretentious Brazilian film by Arnaldo Jabor presents two bored members of the privileged class (Sonia Braga and Paulo Cesar Perelo) acting out their fantasies at tedious length in a luxurious Rio high rise. Jabor presumes to deal with politics in sexual terms, but succeeds only in producing a boring exercise in softcore por- nography which lacks any trace of the necessary courage or insight. The U. S. Catholic Conference has classified it O, morally of- fensive. There is no Motion Picture of America rating. SOUP FOR ONE (Warners) ... A nice Jewish young man (played by talented Canadian actor Saul Rubinek) wanders through the frenetic singles scene in New York in search of the ideal wife in this sometimes bright, but more often erratic and awkward romantic comedy written and directed by Jonathan Kaufer. Unfortunately, some of the jokes are more mean-spirited than genuinely satiric and this, together with a rather heavy dependence on nudity for supposedly comic effect, caused the U. S. Catholic Conference to classify it O, morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America has rated it R, restricted. THE AMATEUR (Fox)...A CIA technician (John Savage) forces the agency to train him as a field agent after his girlfriend is murdered by terrorists; he then goes off behind the Iron Curtain to avenge her death, thus prompting both sides to do their best to rid themselves of so troublesome a character. Directed in uninspired fashion by Charles Jarrott and written by Robert Littell and Diana Maddox from a novel by Littell, this effort is an implausible, altogether mediocre movie.

Further, senior citizens have resources for the enrichment of society which are not always fully ap- preciated either by society or by the aged themselves. Their prayers and their counsel can do much for the community, their presence is a stabilizing influence in the home, and they are exceptionally well equipped to evangelize both by word and example. In places where civil or religious liberties are restricted, it often falls to them to see that religious values are preserved and handed down in the family. In all societies, the older generation has a key role in preserving and transmitting the historical and cultural treasures and values to the benefit of the future generations. To return to the Pope's words in Munich, "I bow down in respect before Old Age.. ": probably the key concept on which the media's work for the old should hinge itself should be "respect." It will be for com- municators to create a positive image of the elderly, emphasizing their dignity as persons, as elders of the community, who through the vital, sacred and natural process of growing old have achieved a fullness of ex- perience, and accumulated a store of wisdom, which are of supreme importance to the human community. The media's intervention will be crucial in procuring the rejection of a mentality (not unknown in the highly- developed consumer society) which considers the elderly as being inconvenient, super- fluous, or useless; which would banish the old to a sort of twilight periphery of society where they will be out of sight. The media will be at pains to create a climate in which it will not be tolerable to permit the old to feel somehow culpable because they create problems for the other age-groups. Church communicators in particular will be convinced, and will try to convince public opinion, that no society can consider itself advanced (or even civilized) unless it takes adequate measures to help, protect and honour its older members; and that progress and improvement in stan- dards of living must be measured by the yardstick of how completely the elderly are made to feel loved, useful FISHERMAN'S CHRISTIAN BOOK STORE 1613 Dodson, Fort Smith, Ark.

Communicators are in a good position to draw public attention to conditions oc- casioning special hardship for the elderly in particular cases. Their influence can be important, too, in securing that the social services provided for the old take account not only of their physical and material needs, but also of the psychological and spiritual. The spiritual dimension will be of particular support to the old in media programs designed for their con- sumption. They need to be reminded of the moral strengths which they possess in even greater measure now while their physical strength is in decline. They should be urged to the practice of the virtues which these strengths Young Adults Days Scheduled Little Rock -- Christ the King Church will sponsor one "Young Adults Day" per month in June, July and August.
