The students' day has been divided into 16 roods, each 25 minutes long. Principal James W. Colvard said he and the instructors were eager to see the plan at work, since each student is guaran- teed more individualized atten- tion in needed areas through mad scheduling. Some days a student will spend hop Lorenzo M. Graziano, O.F.M., 48, of San Miguel, E1 Salvador. Bishop Graziano wasborn at Mount Vernon, N.Y., April 5, 1921, and was ordained in 1947. Pope Paul VI took a different tack from his weekly audience talks of late, scoring the vacuous conditions in which modern man is forced to live as being the main cause of the loss of God for so many men. He touched only casually oil the need of prayer in his discourse at the summer villa to an esti- mated 7,000 people. Then he launched into a condemnation of the movies and television fare, which he labelled as being often "futile and harmful." He further attributed the decline of interest in the things of God to the man- ner in which man is forced to earn his living in an atmosphere of a "single dimension," all of which turns modern man into more of a robot than a personality who can comprehend the goodness of God. Pope Paul VI had words of encouragement and good wishes in an audience here for members FORT SMITH OFFICE SUPPLY 16-18 South Gth Street FOR OFFICE FURNITURE AND EQUIPMENT -Bill Tanner-Jerry Lambiotte-Dudley Culp ARK, PHONE 782-0311 FOR AI,L OCCASIONS FLOWER SHOP 619 South 14th Street PHONE 783-0023 SMITH ARKANSAS COOK PAINT & VARNISH CO.

Each Monday of a student's schedule is the same. Tuesday will be different from Monday but the same as every Tuesday. On certain days more than one class may meet together to hear a lecture during two roods, or 50 minutes. The next day students who attended the lecture will be divided into their normal, small groups for discussion, taking only one mad or 25 minutes. Colvard said, "If the student of many Religious orders who are in Rome holding general chap- ters for the revision of their constitutions. Pope Paul acknowledged the pre- sence in these meetings of "great fervor and great committment... in order to recover the pristine and original inspirations of the foundations.,' The Pope recalled that these Religious families sp r a n g from "the genius of charity and from the wisdom of saintly people." * 'k ,k Pope Paul VI has asked the American people "to use their nation's power and influence wise- ly and generously, with a view to the true welfare of all men." The Pope made this appeal at an audience given to a group of Americans headed by Congress- man John Rooney of New York. Father Daniel O'Connell, director of the Vatican observatory, pre- sented the group to the Pope. Pope Paul told the Americans: "With the whole world we watched as two of your fellow countrymen made mankind's first footsteps on soil outside this planet. We are constantly aware of the assis- tance your country is giving to other lands struggling to develop their resources, indeed, few coun- tries can have had similar weight in deciding the fortunes of the whole human race." The Pope then asked Americans to use their power and influence wisely and voiced his blessing on the United States. The Holy See has named Msgr. Pietro Pavan rector of the Ponti- fical Lateran University. Msgr. Pavan, who had beenpro- fessor of sociology at the Uni- versity's institute of canon and civil law, is credited with writing a major portion of Pope John XXIII's social encyclical Mater et Magistra. He succeeds Msgr. Antonio Pio- lanti, who resigned from the rec- torship. One hundred and forty-six pre- lates are slated to take part in the forthcoming Synod of Bishops which opens in Rome Oct. 11, and which is expected to last two weeks. Bishop Ladislaw Rubin, perma- nent secretary of the synod, told a press conference here that the preparatory document sent to the world's bishops for study last May aimed only at episcopal con- ferences, their relations withthe Holy See and relations among themselves. This document, he said, "does not pretend to re- solve all, but only to single out various aspects of the subject." At the press conference, Bishop Rubin disclosed that Pope Paul VI has named 17 cardinals, bishops and priests as his own personal nominations to the synod. Among the papal nominees are has any questions he has abig advantage in being in mad sched- uling. He can have plenty of time to ask his question and receive personalized contact with the in- structor since the group may only include eight or 10 students." In classes which require lab- oratory work, home economics, chemistry, physics, the student will have sufficient time to carry through exercises by being allow- ed an extra mad. "Team teaching will be used to some extent," Colvard said. "Two English classes meeting during the same mad will receive the benefit of top teaching exper- ience. One teacher proficient in a certain field will give a lec- ture to both groups." Each student can carry only five solids, the principal said. A "free" mad within the stu- dent's schedule will not actually be free, but will place him in a supervised study hall, counseling with one of his instructors who is also free at that time. The first 25 minutes of each day is set aside for homeroom administrative tasks. The last Demand Federal School Funds, Catholics Told Jefferson City, Mo. (NC)-- The Missouri Catholic Conference has told Catholic school officials and pastors throughout the state to be more aggressive in helping to in- sure that nonpublic school children participate equitably in programs funded by the federal government under the Elementary and Secon- dary Education Act (ESEA) of 1965. The conference, organization of the state's Catholic bishops, said it had learned children attending private schools in Missouri are not receiving a fair share of ESEA benefits, that private school authorities are excluded from planning and operation of ESEA programs and that "inadequate or erroneous information" is being provided to private school author- ities regarding Missouri laws. The Missouri Catholic Confer- ecnce told Catholic school officials who believe their youngsters have been denied rightful participation -in ESEA programs to take the following steps: --"Obtain a description of the project, as accurate and detailed as possible." --"Request an explanation of asserted legal prohibitions." --"Refer the...information to the Catholic Conference." ii Terrence Cardinal Cooke of New York and Pennsylvania-born Archbishop Martin J. O'Connor, president of the Pontifical Com- mission for Social Communica- tions. Other Americans to be present at the synod include John Cardi- nal Dearden of Detroit, president of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops in the U. S. ('NCCB); John Cardinal Wright, who will attend in his capacity as prefect of the Congregation for the Clergy; Abbott Rembert Weakland, O.S.B., A b b o t primate of the Benedictine Confederation, elected a delegate by theUnionof Religious Superiors; and Arch- bishop Ambrozij Senyshyn of the Ukrainian-rite archdiocese of Philadelphia and Archbishop Stephen Kocisko of the Byzan- tine-rite metropolitan arch- diocese of Munhall, both of whom will attend in their capacity as major archbishops of Eastern rites. I Bishop Defends Proper Sex Education Nashville, Tenn. ('NC)--Coad- jutor Bishop Joseph A. Durick said here that the central issue involv- ing sex education, whether con- ducted by parent or school, is that the subject be kept in a moral context. He said sex education has been part of the curriculum in Catholic schools throughoutTeun- essee for at least 20 years. The apostolic administrator of the Nashville diocese cited the 1968 statement of the American Catholic bishops stressing the value of planned sex education and suggesting the schools as one instrument of such education. The bishop's statement came after the Nashville Deanery Coun- cil of Catholic Women was criti- cized for making sex education materials available for any school program approved by the pastor, the principal and parent groups. two mods on Friday are reserved for assembly time or homeroom activities. "There will be nobells except for the first and last ones of the day," Colvard said. "This leaves the student responsible for getting to class on time." i 4 3/4% On Savings 5 1/4% On Certificates insured to $15,000.00 SUPERIOR FEDERAL SAVINGS AND LOAN ASSOCIATION Rogers at IGth St.-Ft.
