PAGE 10 THE GUARDIAN, SEPTEMBER 12, 1969 Prayers Returning To Public Schools Netcong, N. J. (NC) -- Clergy- men from this rural New Jersey town met Sept. I0 to compose brief prayers for use in the community's two public schools at the invitation of the Netcong Board of Education. The meeting took place despite a promise by the New Jersey branch of the American Civil Liberties Union that it will fight the board's decision to challenge the United States Supreme Court's ruling against prayer in public schools. The board voted 7-1 to re- store the practice of praying in schools and to ask the town's clergy to compose suitable pray- ers. SINCE 1914 Department Store Clothes for the ENTIRE FAMILY 118 S. Front- Ph. 229-4458 Dardanelle, Arkansas Survey Traces Vocations To Family Washington (NC) -- A three- year study of seminarians has disclosed that vocations for the Catholic priesthood begin in solid- ly religious families, then continue in seminarians who strongly ap- preciate a priest's sacred, rath- er than secular, duties. The study made by the Center for Applied Research in the Ap- ostolate (CARA) which has head- quarters here, also disclosed nearly 90 per cent of U. S. sem- inarians accept celibacy as a necessary condition for ordination. The report added a majority of theology students regard celi- bacy as a positive commitment to Christ. The report said that contrary to a common assumption, the study also disclosed that dogmatic, authoritarian personalities tend to withdraw from the seminary. The CARA study, made under direction of Dr. Raymond A. Pot- vin and Dr. Antanas Suziedelis of Catholic University of America here, is titled "Seminarans in the Sixties: A National Survey."

Paraguayan Bishops Stem New Repressions Asuncion, Paraguay (NC)-- Mounting opposition has forced the government of Gen. Alfredo Storessner to delay enacting a bill aimed at stengthening the state of semi-martial law de- creed several months ago. The opposition now includes members of Stroessner's own ruling Colorado party and the Paraguayan bishops, who warn- ed congress that if it passed the proposed law it would be respon- sible for establishing "a form of totalitarian absolutism that has been repeatedly condemned by the popes." II| Catholic Church in the U. S., said most seminarians (78 per cent) come from suburbs and small cities; 18 per cent from rural areas and only 14 per cent from large metropolitan centers. The study also disclosed an overwhelming majority have had some previous training in aCath- olic school; that 93 per cent of e fathers and 96 per cent of the mothers of the seminarians attend Mass weekly or more often, and 53 per cent of the fath- ers and 70 per cent of the moth- ers receive Communion weekly or more often. The CARA study included semi- narians at all levels: high school, college and theological studies. Olivetans Name Supervisors For Sec0ndary, Elementary Jonesboro -- Sister M.

The aborigines believe that if a sacred stone on the site is tamper- ed with their link with the creator spirit will be broken. The site is within a special reserve for abori- gines, about a third of whom are Christians. One missionary said that driv- ing cattle over the sacred ground was like desecrating a Christian church, and that tampering with the sacred stone would have been similar to a sacrilegious act to- ward the Blessed Sacrament. Before the cattle drive, three non-Christian tribal leaders, Nag- amura, Jacamara and Jimi Djaind- janu, approached a Christian ab- original mission worker, Albert Kelly, and told him they wanted to see Bishop Jobst. The Bavarian-born bishop, a pilot, flew out from Broome to confer with them. They told him drovers were about to drive cat- tle through the sacred ground and asked him to try to prevent it. Bishop Jobst was taken to the site and shown the sacred stone. Normally only tribal initiates are allowed to see it. The bishop visited the cattle- raiser concerned and asked him to use another route, but he was ordered off the ranch. After conferring with the tribal leaders again, Bishop Jobst tele- graphed the minister of native welfare asking him to withdraw the permit allowing the drovers to cross the sacred ground of the aborigines' reserve. When this was not done he flew to Perth and appealed to the mini- ster in person, but the permit was not withdrawn. Bishop Jobst is a man who re- spects strongly the traditions and way of life of the aborigines, and has said that aborigines should be integrated into the Australian com- integration, tion. he feels, is educa- i- Paris Paris, Arkansas Wells Furniture Co.
