PAGE 10 THE GUARDIAN, JULY 25, 1969 Catholic Party Against Change In South Vietnam Constitution Saigon (NC) -- A predominantly Catholic political party has an- nounced its opposition to any change in the Vietnamese consti- tution. Sen. Nguyen Gin Hien, chairman of the Greater Union Force party, said President Nguyen van Thieu should give a clearer explanation of his recent six-point proposal for ending the war and should tell the people if a constitutional change will be necessary to implement the propoals. The proposal has already been rejected by North Vietnam andthe National Liberation Front (NLF). Thieu suggested six principles to Obituary ' govern national elections in which opponents of the government could participate: --The National Liberation Front (NLF), the political arm of the Viet Cong, could participate in the elections if it renounced vio- lence; --An electoral commission to insure equal opportunities in the elections could be set up and could include representatives of the NLF; --An international body should supervise the elections; --The timing and conditions of tile elections could be discus- Requiem Conducted in Springdale MISS GENEVIEVE SANDERS of St. Raphael's since its be- Springdale -- A Requiem Mass was offered here in St. Raphael's Church July 9 for Miss Met Gen- evieve Sanders, a charter member of St. Raphael's Church and Al- tar Society. The Rev. Francis J. Janesko, pastor, officiated at the Mass and preached the homily. A Ro- sar)' service in SiscoChapel was also led by Father Janesko the evening preceding the funeral. Miss Sanders was born August 1, 1886 at Spring Valley, adaugh- ter of Allen and Mary McCarthy Sanders. She was active in the Diocesan Council of Catholic Wo- men at the diocesan, deanery and local levels. She has been a reporter to The Guardian for her Altar Society since the church was a mission. She had kept a set of scrapbooks about the growth ginning. These will be given by her family to the Altar Society. Miss Sanders was es- pecially interested in Boyland of Arkansas. It was her custom to make quilts to be sold, with the proceeds going to the work there. She owned and operated a gro- cery store in Spring Valley until her retirement. She died at Springdale Memorial hospital July 7. She made her home at 208 West Center in Springdale. Surviving her is a brother, Ted J. Sanders of Springdale; a sis- ter, Mrs. Helen Cook of Spring- dale; an aunt, Mrs. Bert Lewis of Fayetteville; and several nieces and nephews. Pallbearers were Roy Cruzen, Jim Nichols, Wayne Yansandt, Herbert Holt, Charles Boyer and Mason Ware. Burial was in Bluff Cemtery. Two Massachusetts Seminaries to Close Boston (NC) -- Two seminaries located in the Boston area will close, officials at each institu- tion announced. They are the School of St. Philip Neri for Delayed Vocations here and the Carmelite Seminary in Hamilton, Mass. Major reason given for the de- cision to discontinue the Boston seminary is the declining need for knowledge of Latin amongcan- didates for the priesthood. The Carmelite Seminary will become the Gordon-Conwell Theological (interdenominational) School next summer. Lack of sufficient students is believed to be the reason for the discontinuance of the Carmelite Seminary, which was established 24 years ago. However, noofficial reason was given. sed with those opposing the Sai- gon government; --The government will abide by the results of the elections. The South Vietnamese consti- tution does not provide for nation- wide elections prior to Septembe r, 1971, and the fourth article of the constitution outlaws com- munism or advocating a com- munist government for South Viet- nam. The Greater Union Force party is made up predominantly of Cath- olic refugees from North Vietnam. One of the few political parties in South Vietnam organized on the local level with definite popular backing among the refugees, it is strongest in the Hanoi dis- trict of Bien Hen province north of Saigon. Though the party is not exclusively Catholic, its main supporters and leaders are Cath- olic. At the Paris peace talks, the North Vietnam and NLF delega- tions denounced Thieu's propo- sal as a "perfidious maneuver" and the North Vietnamese "vig- orously condemned and rejected" it. In Saigon, Vice President Ngu- yen Cao Ky proposed that South Vietnam walk out of the Paris peace talks if the other side con- tinues to reject President Thieu's election proposals. i t Courtesy Call at White Htse President Richard M.
