Herrington pointed to a lack of clarity in the lead paragraph of the story to point up his contention that com- municators should be simple, specific and informative. Symposium - 1974 was held in annual Catholic Center, and morning and afternoon presentations by Herring{on, a Baptist, were followed by floor discussions among CCSA members. The Guardian was criticized after Herrington inquired about the role of the Little Rock diocesan publication. One CCSA member said the paper "needs to tell more of the news that we've got to face jour- nalistically some of the problems the Church has." He suggested that "advocacy journalism" should be prac- ticed by The Guardian. Another member criticized the diocesan weekly for not having told "the whole story" of last spring's "Catholic High School incident." (This referred by His Excellency Bishop Andrew J. McDonald of ad- justments he wanted made in the administration of secondary education in the diocese and in courses offered). "Wasting valuable space" in The Guardian by printing First Communion and Confimation pictures also was criticized. The Guardian's lack of an positions on current world, national and local issues. His Excellency Bishop An- drew J. McDonald informed the society that the diocese already is working to develop an editorial advisory board for The Guardian and he said "we are going to have one."

ALTUS, ARKANSAS Cardinal Dies In (:llr (:,-l.h Rome (NC) -- Cardinal Ildebrando Antoniutti, veteran papal diplomat and former head of the Vatican office which oversees Religious orders and congregations, died in a car crash Aug. 1 near the northern Italian city of Bologna. He was two days short of his 76th birthday. Cardinal Antoniutti's death reduces the College of Cardinals to 130 members. Pope Paul sent out messages of condolence from his summer home at Castelgandolfo to the college of cardinals and to Cardinal Antoniutti's home archdiocese of Udine, Italy. The morning after the cardinal's death, Pope Paul offered Mass for him. Police said a tire of the cardinal's car blewout, sending the car into the path of a trailer truck. The back of the car was crushed. The cardinal was dead on arrival at the hospital. Two other occupants of the car were injured slightly. Cardinal Antoniutti was born Aug. 3, 1898, in Nimis in nor- them Italy. He was ordained in 1920 and seven years later went to China as part of the papal diplomatic mission there. His career took him to Spain during its Civil War (1936-39), and he took an active role in documenting the ideologically motivated murders of bishops and other active Catholics during that struggle. He was also in Portugal and Albania before going to Canada as apostolic pronuncio in 1938. He remained in Canada 15 years.
