The case of Brother McCarver, brother of Tim McCarver, catcher for the Philadelphia Phillies, has not yet been settled. Brother McCarver sought the certifica- tion to teach in the public schools' night program here. He has said he will continue his case until it is finally settled. The complaint of Sister Joan Cecilia raised the issue again. Sister Serves A Grid Rookie John Rush, Memphis State graduate from Pitts- Latrobe, Pa at St. Vincent's College.

" New Delhi, India (NC) -- Radi- cal communists, called Naxa- IRes, are infiltrating student ranks in India and teaching stu- dents to use "hit-and-run" tac- tics, the Catholic News Service of India said. The agency said that in the past the national Congress party, the extemist Hindu Jan Sangh party, and the illegal Moslem League promoted "youth wings." They persuaded college students to participate in street demonstra- tions and to conduct campus campaigns for control of student unions Although student strikes often immobilized the colleges, the agency said, the agitation was generally peaceful. Recently, however, in West Bengal, students supported by professional organizers raided colleges, police stations, hospi- tals and government buildings, exploded bombs, burned furniture and trampled on photos of nat- ional leaders. At St. Xavier's College, Cal- cutta, the Jesuit principal was threatened with a gun but refused to vacate his office. In Calcutta and suburban areas, the Naxalites have made their raids very swiftly, escaping before police could be notified. Evidence indicates that well- trained operators are using dis- satisfied students as tools in their work. Police have found Naxalite headquarters hidden in jungle areas and seized equipment for making bombs, guns and quan- tities of Maoist literature. The news service said the state of education in India contri- butes to this student unrest. Three gore rnment commissions on education have recommended re- forms, but educators have not instituted any.

On it, more than anything else, depends national develop- ment, welfare and curity. industrial growth and educational development are closely coupled. One feeds and accelerates the other." On the other hand, the slow development of Indian industry has failed to absorb more than 65,000 engineering graduates. College students foresee unem- ployment after graduation. This prospect tempts them to join the violent forces led by Naxa- lites who seek to overthrow the government. Said Dr. William Adises- hiah, prominent Catholic educa- tor of Madras University, "All the talk about youth being disil- lusioned by decadent culture and the immorality of the older gen- eration, their justification of drugs to find deeper meaning in life, and their assertion that 'God is dead' because religious conven- tions do not impress them, all these are mere escapes from the problems that merit serious attention." , He points out that a recent survey by the Student Affairs Com- mittee of Kerala University brings to light that 98 per cent of the teachers and 85percent of student leaders say that in- terference in university affairsby politicians is a contributIng fac- tor to unrest in the colleges. The politicians use the "young man with no aptitude for studies, but with plenty of destructive engergy and a rare capacity for bullying others." Many students regard the col- lege as a training ground for political careers. This is why the Naxalites have such a hold over the student Community in We st Bengal, Adiseshia said. Conditions vary in different parts of India, but all of the country's 70 universities and nearly 4,000 colleges are wor- ried about Naxalite influence among the more than 1.5 million students, the Catholic agency said.
