(NC) -- Cal- ifornia's divorce system will be overhauled Jan. 1 when a new law, signed by Coy. Ronald Reagan, goes into effect. The measure eliminates most traditional grounds for divorce and is designed to remove some of the bitterness. Incurable insanity and irrecon- cilable differences will be the only grounds for divorce in Cali- fornia starting next year. Eliminated is the concept of fault, or the finding of one party guilty of sending the marriage on the rocks. Gone are the former grounds of extreme cruelty, adultery, desertion, wilful neg- lect, habitual drunkenness, or con- viction of a felony. The only hold- over ground is insanity. Nearly one out of every two California married couples gets divorced. IIIIII I Eire Asks UN to Discuss Ireland INSURANCE Of All Kinds United Nations (NC) -- Ireland has requested the United Nations General Assembly, which opens its 24th session on Sept. 15, to discuss the "situation in Northern Ireland" as an "important and urgent" matter. The memorandum accompanying the request that this new item be inscribed on the agenda notes that when the first major civil rights protest march took place in Lon- donderry in October, 1968, "the minority found new direction through the spontaneous welding together of existing local minority protest groups, into abroad-based, non-political and non-sectarian civil rights movement." The movement grew rapidly, according to the memorandum, due mainly to the justice of the civil rights case, and the need to meet the increasing opposition, often violent, of "reactionary sec- tarian groups." According to the request, sub- mitted by Ambassador J. J. Cre- rain, permanent representative of Ireland to the UN, the events of August, 1969, were due to the slow pace of reform and the "equi- vocation of the authorities on the BIGELOW ROBINSON CO.

The Irish government considers that the agitation and violence in the North are "directly caused by the failure of the authorities concerned to grant the just de- mands of the minority over a long period for equal treatment with the majority."

Air Bases in the Far East, has term- ed the morale of U.S. fighting men "wonderful," and he reaf- firmed their determination to "de- fend our way of life." Archbishop Furey alluded to Vietnam in an address to the Archdiocesan Council of Catholic Women here. He said he referred to the trip because "we are all engaged in Catholic action, and because we are all interested in what is going on in the Far East." The archbishop recalled several incidents which occurred during the trip he made to the Far East on behalf of the Department of the Air Force. He called the in- cidents "good lessons" which show that "no matter how great our own sacrifices may be, others are making greater sacrifices." He told of visiting sick and wounded servicemen and said "their attitude was magnificent resignation to their situation." Archbishop Furey said Ameri- cans serving in the Far East are well informed about the problems there, and "they all want to get this war over with" because "no- body wants to fight, and nobody wants to stay there in Vietnam if he doesn't have to. "But," he continued, "the men over there believe if we have to be there, and this is the price we must pay for defense of our way of life -- okay, let's pay for it." He said "everywhere I went in the Far East, I found the mor- ale wonderful. Although these men are making tremendous sacrifi- ces, they feel that these sacri- fices are necessary. They feel that Vietnam is the last line of defense." Earlier Archbishop Furey had affirmed America's right to be in Vietnam. Baton Rouge Girl C.e00,e Regional Support for National CYO Office Little Rock -- Delegates from four southern dioceses drafted plans here last weekend for pro- moting the candidacy of 17-year- old Tara Nolan of Baton Rouge, La., for the office of national secretary of the Catholic Youth Organization.

Scott of Mobile-Birmingham, Ala., The Rev. Francis Cosgrove of Natchez-Jackson, Miss., The memorandum, include an undemo- cratic electoral system, especi- ally at the local government level, unfair allocation of public housing and unfair employment practices. "The government of Ireland have always condemned the existence of discrimination in any form in any part of Ireland, and they have deplored intolerance andprejudice in the Six County area," the memorandum affirms. It considers that the root cause of the trouble is the "unjust par- tition of Ireland which arose out of British policy against the wishes of the overwhelming majority of the Irish people." Tara Nolan Rev. G e o r g e Leggin of Baton Rouge, La., and The Rev. Joseph L. Pailo of Little Rock. Joseph Babbin, a lay C.Y.O. director in Baton Rouge, also attended.
