Inside Information Miss Marina Escobar Catholic Girl Wins Teen-Age Contest By KARL CHRIST lady, who is a member of Our Marina Escobar, a 17-year- old beauty who will be a senior at Mount St. MarY Academy in Little Rock next fall, is looking forward to the National Miss Teen-Age Pageant in Fort Meyers, Fla. The reason -- the dark- haired daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ramon Escobar emerged the victor in the Miss Arkansas Teen-Age Pageant held recently at the University of Central Arkansas in Conway. By winning over 64 other contestants, she earned the chance to compete in the national event. 'TII leave here for Fort Meyers on July 29 and return Aug. 6," she said, her eyes dancing with excitement. "I just hope I do well. The ex- perience alone will help me a lot. I'm looking forward to it." But before she heads for Florida, Marina is going to be a busy young lady. She is going to be hostess and master of ceremonies for the Miss Indiana Teen-Age Pageant at Indiana University• She will serve in the same capacity for the Miss Arkansas Pre-Teen Pageant here in Little Rock and then will be a hostess at the Miss Arkansas Pageant in Hot Springs• Speaking of the state contest, she said, "'I was really shocked. I wasn't ex- pecting to win it." But the attractive young Lady of the Holy Souls parish, shouldn't have been. She had entered the contest the year before and was one of the five finalists. The contestants were judged on scholastic achievement, appearance in formal dress and interviews with judges. Marina has a 3.4 average in school of a possible 4.0. She said the judges questionedher on current events, politics and qualities she thought it took to win the pageant. "Poise was the main thing," she added. By besting the other con- testants aged 13-18, she won a $2,850 scholarship to the University of Central Arkansas, a $1,000 savings bond, a scholarship to a modeling school and a round trip to Mexico with her parents• Marina said she plans to take advantage of the UCA scholarship by attending the university for a year to take art fundamentals. Then she hopes to go to Florida State to study art. She plans to major in public relations and commercial arts in college. As for the trip to Mexico, she said she and her parents plan to take it after the national contest is over. And when she does, it's entirely possible that she may have two titles in her possession.

His Excellency Bishop See Novena on Pg. 4 Special Liturgies Forbidden July 4 "The nation celebrates its Declaration of Independence (July 4) as the liturgy reminds us that we have on earth no lasting city but look to our citizenship in heaven. The lectionary provides special readings for Masses on Independence Day, but these may not be used this day since the Sunday Scriptures are only replaced by solemnities," Father Robert A. Torres, director of the diocesan Liturgy Office, said. "We have become more and more sensitive to our in- terdependence in a global community, less and less comfortable with claiming God as on our side," he continued. "It is important that patriotic prayers and an- thems not transform the Eucharist into a pep rally. There is darkness as well as light in our history, motive for repentance as well as reason for thanks," Father Torres concluded. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA ..... A. ........ AAA ...... AAAAAi Bishop's Office 2415 N. Tyler Little Rock, Ark. Dear Friends in Christ: In recent weeks, Our Holy Father, John Paul II has continued to imitate St. Paul, the great missionary of the early Church. He has visited Portugal, England, Argentina• His courage, his energy, his love have energized the whole Church. During this year, it is also true that inflation has strained the financial resources of Our Holy Father. In a special sacrificial way, I appeal to you to come to his aid in the ancient collection called Peter's Pence next weekend. These funds will be sent immediately to Our Holy Father so that he can continue to be the Good Shepherd to the whole world. Your friend, + AndrewJ. McDonald Bishop of Little Rock Catholic Families' Prayers Requested Little Rock -- The families of the Diocese of Little Rock are being asked to, pray for America and for peace in the world before viewing the evening news each day. In parishes throughout the diocese, pastors will be distributing folding prayer cards designed to stand atop television sets as a reminder to pray regularly before the daily news, when so many of the painful realities of the nation and the world are brought to attention. Picture of Mary The cards have on one side the famous picture of Mary, the Mother of Jesus, with the title "Mother of Perpetual Help." The words of the prayer, "Hail Holy Queen," are on the other, concluding with a petition for the good of the church and country. The program to link family prayer with the evening news was conceived by Father R.T. McKee, a Redemptorist priest in Saint Louis, in response to the serious problems facing the nation and the world. In the Diocese of Little Rock, the program is being sponsored by the Family Life Office. Sunday, July 4, when so many people will be thinking of America, has been chosen as the time for beginning this prayer program. The cards will be given to each family on that day. Father Richard S. Oswald, director of the Family Life Office, commented: "The moral and economic state of our nation is a topic that seems to be on the minds of everyone today. Questions concerning abortion, the nuclear arms race, militarism, concern for the poor and the disadvantaged, manipulative foreign policies, dishonesty in business and government, materialistic consumerism, shoddy workmanship, inflation and unemployment are being addressed by Pope John Paul and our bishops. These questions also- enjoy full media exposure and are portrayed in popular films, books and music. "Singer Merle Haggard's question, 'Are we rollin' down hill like a snowball headed for hell?' expresses a fear of many. Prayer Needed "How are we to respond to this crisis? Recent Popes and our bishops have challenged us to develop the political skills to bring the Gospel- based social teaching of our church to bear in reshaping the social, political, economic and cultural institutions that would dehumanize us. Given the complexity of these in- stitutions, such a task is not an easy one. We must also accept our call to suffer as Jesus did as we work toward a time of renewal and fulfillment. Finally, we must trust in Jesus' promise that devout prayer is the way to personal and community reform and renewal," he concluded. 10 Benedictines • a Celebrate Key Jubilee Years Fort Smith -- Ten professed, four counting 50 at meeting in Benedictine Sisters will be years and one 25 years at the marking key jubilee years 10 A.M.
