AUG. 9, 1974 Discuss Holy Year Plans His Holiness Pope Paul Vl recently met with Israel's Minister of Tourism Moshe Kol to discuss Middle East topics, among them plans for the 1975 Holy Year. Millions of Catholics are expected to visit Rome and many are ex- pected to visit the Holy Land. Catholics Challenging $. Korean Persecution Seoul, South Korea (NC) -- More than 2,000 Catholics at- tended a Mass in Myong Kong Cathedral here to protest the jailing of Bishop Daniel Tji Hak Soun of Won JR, scheduled to be tried by a military court on charges of subversion. Bishop Tji was arrested July 23 by the South Korean Central Intelligence Agency after he read a statement denouncing "violence, intimidation and fraud" under the dictatorial rule of President Park Chung Hee. In recent weeks, 91 persons have been convicted of anti- government activities in a wave of political trials. Among those convicted is the poet Kim Chi Ha, who was charged with giving money to dissident students to organize anti- government demonstrations. Bishop Tji is accused of having given about $2,500 to the poet. Among those at the protest Mass were Cardinal Stephen Kim of Seoul and the Belgian and French ambassadors. U.S. Ambassador Philip C. Habib, a Catholic, did not attend. Some Koreans have criticized U.S. officials for not dissociating themselves from the repressive measures of the Park regime. The day before the Mass here, Secretary of State Henry Kissinger told a Senate subcommittee in Washington that military and economic aid to South Korea would continue because U.S. security interests overrode dissatisfaction with Park's I ] Arkansas Leads the Way Mrs. Kathryn Turehi of Pine Bluff, left, Arkansas Regent of the Catholic Daughters of America, and Estamae Marine, the Colorado State Regent, led Regents' procession into the Cathedral of St. Vibiana, Angeles, during the recent CDA national convention policies.

II London (NC) -- The latest reliable figure for the number of Catholic priests in the world is 418,400, a priest writing in The Times of London estimated. Father James Forrestall, pastor of St. Hugh of Lincoln parish in Manchester, recognized as an authority on clergy statistics, said that, while the estimated Catholic population of the world has increased by a fifth since 1960 the n-lmllr'" of' pri'ests'"ilas remained virtually static. The number of diocesan and religious priests rose from 418,000 in 1960 to 425,000 in 1969 but has since fallen to 418,400, he said. Europe, with 40 per cent of the world's Catholics, has more than 60 percent of the priests, the article continued. Latin America, with 36 per cent of the world's Catholics, has only I0 per cent of the priests. One of the best staffed areas in the world is Tokyo, where in 1969 there was one priest for every 109 Catholics, Father Forrestall said. In contrast, Mexico City had one priest for every 6,016 Catholics. DAIRY PRODUCTS Nea'rest')Food S-tore.
