Boston Violence Scored by NCCIJ Boston (NC) - The National Catholic Conference for In- terracial Justice (NCCIJ) has decried what it called "the racism, lawlessness and violence of the white people of South Boston" and attacked President Gerald Ford for giving "moral support to racism in South Boston and across the country." The NCCIJ expressed its views in a statement adopted by its board of directors at a meeting in Chicago and released here by NCCIJ On Rosary executive director, Father James Sheehan. The statement was issued Oct. 16, the day after Recommended 00oju00y of several students in racial fighting prompted Detroit, Mich. (NC) - Retired Bishop Joan Pereira Venancio of Fatima, Portugal, president of the international Blue Army of Our Lady of Fatima, urged Blue Army directors from around the country to promote the Rosary and Scapular and, especially during the 1975 Holy Year, observance of the five First Saturdays and all-night prayer vigils. He spoke here at the first U.S. national meeting of Blue Army chaplains since the movement began in this country 25 years ago. It is a Catholic organization dedicated to apreading devotion to the Blessed Virgin. All of the diocesan directors at the three-day meeting reported that they sponsored all-night vigils in their own dioceses on the eves of the First Saturday of the month. Several reported increases in the devotion, and several reported increasing interest in the Blue Army among the young people in their areas. VICE BAN UPHELD Massachusetts Gov. Francis W. Sargent to call National Guardmen on a stand-by basis. Opposition to court-ordered busing for school desegregation had led to violence here since the opening of school in Sep- tember. "We feel a special pain and shame because so many people in South Boston share with us the Catholic faith," the statement said. "But more, we deplore, not only in Boston but across the country, systems and standards in American public education which are unequal. Wealthier suburbs are excluded in Boston and elsewhere from desegregation orders. Working class parents, both black and white, see their legitimate expectations for their children frustrated and no one seems to care." The NCCIJ praised Cardinal Humberto Medeiros of Boston "for his repreated statements calling for brotherhood and faith." The NCCIJ called on "the clergy and our fellow Cathoics in South Boston to raise a supportive voice for the ob- servance of law and con- stitutional rights, a moral voice condemning racial hate and violence." The statement praised the black community of Boston for "its self control and patience" in the face of "extreme provocation." The NCCIJ called the Newark, N.J.
