PAGE 2 THE GUARDIAN, JULY 5, 1974 "Media Mirror Society" To Be Theme of Annual Editor's Desk.. No onecanquestionthat, in Communications Study the wrong hands, a "dangerous weapon" is a menace. There is an average of two per family in the United States, and, while most persons realize the hazards involved in their use, others ignore the dangers. As a result between 40,000 and 50,000 Americans will die this year and hundreds of thousands of others will be "wounded." Protecting the public against the careless or criminal abuse of the traditional American right to own private property is difficult. So the deaths and the injuries continue. But something should be done about the situation, something drastic. The automobile definitely is a "dangerous weapon" when it gets into the wrong hands. Little Rock -- "The Media Mirror Society" will be the theme of Symposium - 1974, sponsored by the Catholic Communications Society of Arkansas. Media personnel from all parts of the Diocese of Little Rock will hear I.E. (Gene) Herrington develop this view at morning and afternoon sym- posium sessions Saturday, Aug. 3, at St. John's Catholic Center here. Herrington, former managing editor of the Arkansas Democrat, is manger of com- pany publications and public information for Arkansas Power and Light Company. The symposium will be the third sponsored by the CCSA since its organization in 1972. Herrington, a Baptist, will be the first Resource Person who is not a Catholic. The society's aim is to sharpen the professional con- sciences of persons employed by the communications media and thus ultimately raise the moral and ethical standards of the profession. The CCSA president, John Thompson, editor of the North Little Rock Times, reported several advance registrations for the symposium early this week. Interested non-members may attend both the morning and afternoon sessions, he said. His Excellency Bishop An- drew J. McDonald will address the noon luncheon in the Catholic Center refectory and will discuss the recent regional meetingsof. American Bishops which were devoted to evangelization and com- munications. Floor discussions will follow both of Herrington's presen- tations. The registration fee will be $5, Thompson said, and advance registrations will be helpful. The Society's address is P.O.

Charismatic Impact Felt by 00rkansans ference at Notre Dame University in Indiana was still being felt this week, and testimonials to it were provided by six Arkansans who par- ticipated. Details of the massive demonstration of faith were published in last week's edition of The Guardian. Following are excerpts from personal impressions provided by a few of the Arkansas Catholics who were among the 25,000 charismatics at con- Little Rock -- The impact of ference sessions in Notre Dame the recent eighth International stadium: Catholic Charismatic Con- "At the Notre Dame con- vention, I experienced the joy of unity in the person of Christ. No one else could have brought 25,000 varied people of all age groups, backgrounds, and nationalities, happily together, with such a bond of love. I will never forget the beautiful unity. I felt strongly that we would all be together again one day in Christ -- forever." Betsy Speck, 18 Little Rock "I have never witnessed God's love practiced in a more complete manner by God's people from all over the world. Tape recorders, cameras, purses, etc., were left unat- tended with no fear of them being stolen. There was an atomosphere of complete freedom, trust and love among 25,000 fellow Christians from every part of the,world."

I experienced what it means to be a fool for Christ, for in the eyes of the world, it must surely be sheer madness to spend a couple of days sharing and praising and singing to the Lord. Also to step out in faith into the rain and believe that God is in command of the elements. The radiant faces which spoke of joy and peace, which confronted me on all sides filled me with happiness because .I truly believe that is God's plan for man - to be happy. There was such an over- all atmosphere of calm and order over the whole campus." Sister Ethel Marie Sonnier Fort Smith "There were physical healings. I myself saw a woman who had not walked in 11 years get up and walk. I could see her thin legs, the wasted muscles, walking, climbing the steps to praise God for her healing. There were many healings. This one I saw. "As a Catholic, I felt an . . .increase in the love for the ,Eucharistic presence and a deep desire to receive Jesus daily.

Helen Kent Little Rock "The restoration of the Church was in evidence at Notre Dame this past weekend. The faith and peace and love of which the thousands of people were witnesses was an ex- perience in itself. I felt that Jesus was very much present and among His people there, and this was proven by the healings that took place, both physical and inner. "Hearing Cardinal Suenens speak of the relationshp of Mary as the first charismatic Christian and her alikeness to the Holy Ghost was very very enlightening. "One of the most encouraging happenings of the conference was to see the number of priests present. Approximately 1,000 were concelebrants of the Mass of Corpus Christi. "I praise and thank God for the miracles He worked among the Arkansas travelers who were present at the conference, and for what He is doing throughout His Church." Sister Danielle Dermott, Ark. "The theme of .the 1974 in- ternational charismatic con- ference was 'Jesus Christ Is the Light of the World,' and further that He shines forth among us, all truly brothers. A light that shines in spite of rain, cold, sore feet and long lines. In fact, these seemed only to make it shine more brightly. The light which gave back sight to the blind, the warmth of His touch that made the lame walk, and the sound of His voice that gave hearing to the deaf.
