Father Robert G. llowes, as- sociate professor of engineer- ing at the Catholic University of America, made that com- mcnt in testifying on behalf of Citizens for Public Prayer, Bishop Bernard J. Flanagan of Worcester, the Worcester (Mass.) Diocesan Council of Catholic Women, and Worces- te," Mayor George Wells. But the amendment "is not for school prayer alone," he said, "but rather to arrest once and for all at the prayer point a tn'ocess of secularism which, unless radically checked, must erode away all public rever- ellce." Citing national ,polls, resolu- tions by school boards and boards of selectmen in Massa- chusetts cities, congressmen's polls of their districts, Father Ilowes said "upwards of 80 per cent of our fellow citizens" favor the prayer amendment. As one indication, he offered "more than 100,000" signatures on petitions gathered by Citi- zens for Public Prayer. He assailed the "culpable am- biguity" of religious leaders who oppose the amendment, and called them "generals with- out armies," who "do not have even their own congregants with them." The Rev. Arthur C. Barnhart, executive secretary of the nee PRAYER on Page 7 Holy Day The Guardian office, 311 West Second Street, Little Rock, will be closed next Mon- day, August 15, in observance of the Feast of the Assumption, a holy day of obligation.
