Wade, 75, one of the church's foremost20th- century missioners and American hero of World War II in the Paci- fic theater, was offered in Our Lady of Victory church here. Richard Cardinal Cushing of Boston was the chief concelebrant of the June 17 Mass and preached the eulogy. The son of immigrant parents, an Irish father and a Welshmoth- er, Bishop Wade was born in Pro- vidence, R. I. When the Japanese invaded the Solomon Islands in World War 1I, they spread a wide path of death and destruction. The bishop met the invaders when they landed at Bougalnville with a demand that his missioners remain free and un- harmed to carry on their work. The Japanese reply was to take the bishop prisoner, but he managed to escape and hid out in the hills until rescued by American forces. dy, Homer Holmes, George L. McBridge, H. F.

Bishop Tracy said that while recognizing the seriousproblems of the parochial schools, "I am still strongly opposed to clos- ing" them. "It would mean losing some 300 religious teachers to oth- er dioceses in which parochial schools are still open. Moreover, our Diocesan Lay Congress, rep- resenting all our people, voted overwhelmingly lastyear toretain our parochial schools. Consequent- ly, I will do all in my power to keep our schools open," he pledged. (NC News Service) Bishop Robert E. Tracy of Ba- ton Rouge declared that the dio- cese is "definitely faced with the prospect of closure of its school," but added he will "do all in my power" to prevent this from hap- pening. Bishop Tracy's statement came in response to a resolution by the diocesan Priests' Senate which called for immediate steps to close all parochial and interparo- chial schools unless public assis- tance is provided for them. Five more parochial schools were closed in the Portland, Me. diocese, while Buffalo diocesan of- ficials announced the closing of two schools and the consolidation of six others and indicated more closings, consolidations andphas- ing out of grades can be expected. The provincial seminary for the four dioceses of Iowa closed its doors for the last time this month. Phone FR 2-2277 MAJESTIC ..

Bishop Tracy noted that the senate resolution and his own comments on it "were not all sim- ply pressure tactics. "As a matter of fact, the dio- cese is definitely faced with the prospect of closure of its schools," he stated. "The question is this: If they have to be closed for lack of funds, will it be gradual, as at present, or immediately? After all, Louisiana Catholic schools did lose 15,000 students duringthe past two years."
