Benson, the same chaplain who baptized him. He had been confirmed in 1970 by Cardinal Terence Cooke of New York, military vicar for the U.S. armed forces. From Me m j Managlng Editor's Desk.. There was a substantial measure of the ludicrous in ....... what daredevill Evel Knievel did this week. But there also was evidence of the disease that afflicts our nation. It probably is understandable that a country that can rocket men to the moon is incapable of manufacturing a "motorcycle" that can be projected a quarter of a mile through the air. But there is nothing un- derstandable about a country making a to-do about inflation, CALL Tom Cullivan FOR SALE OF HOMES, FARMS & ACREAGE CULLIVAN REALTY 5301 LEE/L.1L - PHONE 663-6879 0000)YOU'RE IN SO RED is Y-F.aa%eers -- .n,urance 205 Donaghey Building Phone 376-4707 HOWARD HARDIN LARRY WILSON JACK GARDNER For INSURANCE Ol All Kinds CALL A.

ARKANSAS Vatican Rejects Population Document CONTINUED FROM PAGE I and a number of delegations not present. The Holy See was also chagrined that the conference ignored spiritual and human considerations in the plan. At one point, Bishop Gagnon reminded the plenary session that man must not be made a servant of "economic and technological goals." He said the job of the conference was not to protect such goals but to "celebrate life." 69 U.S. Bishops in Rome Rome (NC) --His Excellency Bishop Andrew J. McDonald of Little Rock is one of 69 U.S. bishois participating in a month-long "theological con- sultation" here with some of the Church's top international scholars. The unusual coming-together, which assembled almost one- about deficit spending, about the needs of the poor and inequitable taxes, and then paying upwards of $5-million to a clown willing to put his life in jeopardy. Our nation's priorities are awry. And not only with regard to financial matters. It Would be interesting to know how many Catholics were in the paying audience that watched Evel Knievel flirt with death. It would also be interesting to know how many of them have recently gone out of their way to visit the Man who surrendered Himself to death so they can enjoy eternal happiness. II CU Collection Gets Boost from Vatican Washington (NC) - Cardinal Garrone, prefect of the Vatican Congregation for Catholic Education, has become a booster of the annual national collection for the Catholic University of America here. The collection this year will be on Sept. 28-29. In a letter to Archbishop William Baum of Washington, chancellor of the university, Cardinal Garrone expressed the hope that the "well-known generosity of .merican Catholics towards the university will continue and grow." fourth of the U.S. hierarchy with American and European specialists in theology, biblical studies and other related fields, is centered on the theme, "Toward the New Man in Jesus Christ." The U.S. Bishops' Theological Consultation, as it is rmally called, brings together bishops and scholars in a series of seminars delving into developments in theology resulting from Vatican Council II. "There are two basic, in- timately related issues today that are foremost in the Church," said the consultation's organizer, Msgr. Richard J. Mahowald. The consultation, he said is centering around "Christology and ecclesiology," theological studies of Christ and the Church. Fifty-five residential ar- chbishops and bishops, in- cluding Cardinal Terence Cooke of New York, as well as 15 auxiliary bishops, are taking part in the meetings. The consultation is the first of its kind ever to be participated in by so many American bishops in Rome. The scholars who are discussing developments in their fields come from many of Rome's pontifical universities and other specialized in- stitutions of higher education. The meetings in Rome will continue until Sept. 24, when participants will travel to Assisi where they will remain until Sept. 30. During the month-long get- together, the bishops will have the opportunity of making their "ad limina" visits. An ad limina visit to Rome is required of a residential bishop once every five years to present a report on the state of his diocese to the Pope, and to visit the tombs of the apostles. The ad limina visits are literally visits "to the threshold" of the tombs of the Apostles Peter and Paul. The developing nations were able to alter the conference's major document, the World Plan of Action, and have it say : "Population policies are con- stituent elements of socio- economic development policies, never substitutes for them." Not only did the Third World succeed in inserting into the Plan of Action language con- cerning positive steps, such as improvement of maternal and child health care, lowering of mortality rates, and heightened status for women, but they also included several digs at the overconsuming developed world. The way of life of the rich nations, according to the plan, "can produce harmful effects, such as wasteful and excessive consumption and activities which produce pollution." The conference backed away from recommending an ideal family size or from setting hard and fast growth-rate targets for various regions of the world, as some developed nations had advocated. But the plan does "invite" nations to consider adopting their own targets regarding birth rates. The conference erased from the draft Plan of Action a paragraph which stated that the United Nations accepts 1985 as a Liturgy, Music Workshop Slated Little Rock - A Liturgy and music workshop, sponsored by the Diocesan Liturgical Commission, will be held from 10 A.M. to 4 P.M.

Pope Urges Greater Effort for Renewal Castelgandolfo, Italy (NC) - Pope Paul VI has urged all Catholics to "do a little more" for the Church's updating begun by Pope John XXIII. Speaking at his weekly general audience at his summer home here, the Pope said: "To you we all proclaim: as a problem and as a program we must do a little more today" He warned against giving "punctilious priority to the letter of certain outward religious observances, above the basic spirit, principles and virtues of Christianity." He continued: "This is a call to that updating which we consider a mandate inherited from Pope John, and a call to that renewal which the Holy Year offers to vigilant and willing souls." m i I " T e Ouardi00u Published Weekly by The Guardlm . 2500 N.
