THE GUARDIAN, JUNE 20, 1969 Cardinal Carberry Won't Tolerate Mass Disruptions St. Louis (NC) -- John Cardinal Carberry of St. Louis has told Catholics he "cannot and will not condone planned interference or disruption of the sacred acts of worship" in the archdiocese. Speaking at a press conference here, the cardinal announced spe- cific guidelines for priests in dealing with church demonstra- tions and released a pastoral let- ter read at all Sunday Masses in the archdiocese. About two dozen militants dem- onstrated at St. Louis cathedral's noon Mass on June 8. Using a battery-powered bullhorn, the the St. Louis group demanded archdiocese act as a non-profit bonding agency for poor people and publish a list of "all slum pro- perty" owned by the archdiocese. The demonstrators threatened to defile consecrated bread and wine at future demonstrations in symbolic protests such as "spitting in the Communion cup." In his pastoral letter, Cardinal Carberry said: "My responsibility as the spiritual leader of the Catholic people of this archdiocese obliges me to state unhesitatingly and without fear that we cannot and will not condone planned interference or disruption of the sacred acts of worship." In his letter, Cardinal Carberry also stressed that the archdiocese "cannot and will not tolerate blas- phemous threats against the most holy Blessed Sacrament." , The cardinal, in guidelines for Church Guide J '"c '- Pine Bluff oo,,,,,.o.,, said: "Permission to speak in church during religious services is not to be granted; the same holds true for distribution of literature," Cardinal Carberry PINE BLUFF St Joseph s Church Sunday Masses, said priests could still allow 6:00, 8:00 and 10:00 a.m. Holyday Masses: 6:00 and 8:00 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. St. Peter's Church.

The second guideline said that during demonstrations, priests should attempt to remain calm and to keep the congregation calm. But, the cardinal continued, "if, in the judgment of the priest, a serious disturbance has been created, he should not hesitate to call the police." When asked what he meant by a "serious distur- bance," the cardinal explained he Missouri Kills GATHRIGHTI v,.,,.o,,..-I Effort to Reform Abortion Statute ! IRA FOSTER OIL CO. PINE BLUFF, ARK. PHONE JE 4-0191 Jobber. HULSE Service Station Jefferson City, Me. (NC) -- The Missouri Senate has killed a relaxed abortion law by a vote of 17 to 11, thus ending attempts to revise the state's abortion statutes this year. Prior to tim floor vote in the senate, the Criminal Juris- prudence Committee of the Senate had approved a relaxed abortion bill which would have al- lowed abortion when the pregnancy resulted from rape or incest, when the physical health of the expectant mother was endangered and when there was a likelihood that the child would be born defective. The proposed bill provided that three physicians other than the one who was to perform the abor- tion would have to attest to the circumstances of the operation.
