Black Catholics Hit High Court Ruling Washington (NC) -- The National Office for Black Catholics (NOBC) called the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision limiting the cir- cumstances in which busing must be used for racial in- tergration in schools "a serious derailment of whatever progress has been made towards the equality of all citizens of this country." In a five-to-four decision in a case involving busing from mostly black schools in Detroit to mostly white schools in suburban counties, the court said that such inter-district busing could not be required unless both the city and suburban school districts had been found to be un- constitutionally segregated. The NOBC said the decision "is a subversion of the only realistic method of achieving integration in some geographical areas" and "can only give aid and comfort to those persons who are deter- mined to maintain America as a racist society." Pope Paul Praises Nature Castelgandolfo, Italy (NC) -- "It's holiday time," Pope Paul VI told hundreds of tourists The following Saturday, Aug. 17 members will attend the dog races at West Memphis.

Speaking from a balcony window before leading them in the recitation of the Angelus, the Pope greeted them almost gaily and spoke of the beauties of nature which they should enjoy. "Now's the time to wish you all 'Happy Holidays' and to suggest to those who have the good luck to be on them that they include a reading of the great tome of nature instead of some book of dubious good taste. "Take the advantage of the summer holidays to return to the vision - the knowledge, the contemplation of that immense, stupendous, authoritative book which is nature." He told his listeners that while nature was subject to man and to his intelligent exploitation of it, man should study its richness. "Even we must be for that ecology which is so much spoken of today, provided this does not change man from his position as lord to servant of this natural world, but teaches us, rather, how to make good use of it," the Pope said.

I Chi lean Group F lees Country Santiago, Chile (NC) -- Twenty-three opponents of the Chilean military junta who had asked for refuge at the apostolic nunciature here July 23 left the country for Buenos Aires, Argentina July 29. Since the nunciature in Chile cannot legally give political asylum, contacts between the highest levels of the govern- ment and nunciature officials resulted in an agreement by which the group was tem- porarily taken to a religious house until their departure from the country could be arranged. Political asylum in foreign embassies is widely recognized in Latin America. Several embassies of Latin American countries in Santiago were filled with persons identified with the Marxist regime of the late President Salvador Allende after its overthrow by the military coup of last Sep- tember. Meanwhile, 'it was announced here that Father Mariano Puga Concha, a priest-worker who was arrested July 23, was released in the custody of Chilean Church authorities July 26.
