Father Kane was asleep in his second-floor bedroom when the fire started in his first floor study. Reports indicated defective wiring might have caused the blaze. A neighbor, Stand Steel, who lives across the street, was awakened about 2:45 A.M. by the odor of smoke. While he was inspecting his own home for fire, he glanced outside and Father Kane noticed dense smoke pouring from St. Michael's rectory.

The benefits are numerous: .1) You are not restricted to songs copyrighted by only one publisher. 2) New songs can be added at any time. 3) Music and texts can be chosen to suit the tastes of youthful and older congregatons. 4) Songs can be selected and integrated with a well-planned liturgy. "Unfortunately, however, contemporary religious music is copyrighted. Unauthorized reproduction of copyrighted text or music is a violation of the copyright law. The Bishops' Committee on the Liturgy reminds us, 'Those engaged in parish music programs and those responsible for parochial music budgets are reminded that it is immoral and illegal to reproduce by any means either the text or music or both of copyrighted materials without the written permission of the copyright owner. The fact that these duplicated materials are not for sale but for private use only within a parish church or school does not alter the legal or moral situation of the practice.' (From the May 1969 Newsletter of the Bishops' Committee on the Liturgy) "Those working with con- temporary music are requested to make no further unauthorized copies of either the text or music of such songs. Permission to copy these songs can be obtained from the copyright owners. When such permission is granted, certain credits must be included before and after the song text. If these songs are reproduced correctly the first time, you will not lose time by having to do them over again.

Torres, Chairman, Diocesan Liturgical Commission, 617 Louisiana Street, Little Rock, Arkansas 72201.
