McDermott, S. J., as- sistant director for peace, di- vision of world justice and peace, United States Catholic Conference, who is making arrangements for the meeting. He said it is hoped that the meeting will be the first in a ser- ies of talks between American and Soviet churchmen. Auxiliary Bishop John J. Dough- erty of Nework, N.

It was pos- sible to findoutwhatothers thought from every possible angle about the subjects examined and the prob- lems confronting the churches today." Archbishop John Murphy of Car- diff, Wales, one of the Catholic representatives, said: "The work of the Malta commission was more in the nature of a theologi- cal study between both parties who were able to learn each oth- ers views." Dr. Eric Baker of Great BrR- ain, a vice president of the WMC, said: "I am pleased that the talks took place in Malta where there is a tremendousecu- menical spirit." He said that young people are impatient today and prefer to see the Church, not as an insitution, but as some- thing exuding enthusiasm and vi- tality, "In previous centuries," Dr. Baker continued," the Churchwas a great influence; today com- munism is makingpeople examine things more closely. The positive aspects of the Gospel should be taught to youths, the good that could be acquired through abet- tr understanding of theirvalue." Dr. Baker concluded: "I main taln that the only solution for Church unity and the problems confronting it is to have one uni- versal Church spreading its Gos- pel throughout the world and thus giving greater effect to its teaching." Delegates to the meeting were unanimous in praising the decree of the Second Vatican Council concerning Church unity (Decree on Ecumenism). They praised it as a fine work of theology, the teaching of which should be known by members of all churches. Questioned as to whether the meeting of the representatives of the two Churches had borne any fruit, delegates maintained that the Church is moving toward ulti- mate unity, but that Divine Pro- vidence alone can ensure reach- ing that goal. They stressed the need of prayer for unity. The next meeting in the Catho- lic-Methodist series will be held in the U. S. at the Methodist re- treat house at Lake Junaluska, N.C., on Aug. 24, 1970.

I see this action as a living witness of the great yearn- ing of the churches to assist the human family in its search for world peace." Nine Soviet delegates, headed by Orthodox BishopJuvenaly, vice chairman of external church af- fairs, Patriarchate of Moscow, arrived in New York City Sept. 29. The delegation includes Rus- sian Orthodox, Lutheran, and Baptist clergymen and laymen. The U. S. delegation is headed by Dr. RobertS. Bilheimer, executive director of the National Council of Churches' department of international affairs, and Msgr. Marvin Bordelon, director of the USCC world justice and peace division. Four papers will be presented by each delegation: "The Problems of Limitation of Nuclear Arms and Missile Defense Systems," "The Basis of Christian Concern for Arms Limitation, .... How Should International Peacekeeping Be Strengthened," and "The Work of the United States Churches for Peace." The paper covering the theme of the meeting will treat the arms limitation problem from a theo- logical point ofviewwith reference to Holy Scripture as a foundation, according to Father McDermott. The meeting, he pointed out, "will not attempt to find a facile solution to the arms race. It is hoped, however, that the consulta- tion will help create a climate in which a rational solution can take place." The meeting will be conducted at Fordyce House, a conference center operated by St. Louis University. It is sponsored jointly by the world justice and peace division and the NCC's depart- ment of International 3.ffalrs. It opens today and will conclude next Tuesday.
