This was a reference to the Pope's visit to the Geneva head- quarters of the ILL) last June. David A. Morse, the organiza- tion's director-general, said the visit had added to ILO prestige and given further thrust to its World Development Program for the "Second Development Decade" that begins in 1971. ing of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops (NCCB). The bishops will ponder their problems for five days, issue a statement and go home. In this, they will be little dif- ferent from the group of bishops who began such meetings exactly 50 years ago in what was then known as the National Catholic Welfare Council -- later becoming the National Catholic Welfare Con- ference (NCWC). The vast dif- ference, however, is the smooth- running, permanent operation that now works the year round with streamlined, efficient commit- FOREST with its many problems. "We see the need for continual updating in our own organization," the leader of the permanent secre- tariat, Bishop Joseph L. Bernar- din, told NC News Service here. As the general secretary of the conference, he is aided by two priests in the Washington head- quarters, Msgr. Francis T. Hur- ley and Father Edwin B. Neill. "We have our four officers, of course, with John Cardinal Dear- den of Detroit as president. Since our reorganization three years ago we have continued the 40-member administrative committee, but at the meeting next week we are pro- HEIGHTS SHOPPING CENTER .

Just to make sure that the conference is even more mobile, there will be proposed a still smaller commit- tee to handle urgent matters that may arise, and to coordinate the items for the agenda of future gen- eral conference meetings. "This executive committee, if you will, can be considered anoff- i shoot of the 40-memher adminis- trative committee," Bishop Ber- nardin explained. "This will be composed of our four officers (Cardinal Dearden, John Cardi- nal Krol of Philadelphia, John Cardinal Cod}, of Chicago and Bis- hop Ernest Unterkoefler of Char- leston, S.C.) and just one other member elected from the re- maining 36 bishops on the com- mittee. This smaller group will be empowered to make recom- mendations to the general mem- bership and to the administra- tive committee on such important items as conference statements anti to speak in the name of the conference." "This does not alter the tact that the administrative committee really directs the conference," Father Neill insisted. "The ad- ministrators of the NCCB carry on the work of the conference between the plenary sessions, review the action of the executive committee, plan the plenary sessions and coordinate our office, the gen- eral secretarlate. This is in keep- ing with the council documents which called for episcopal con- ferences and specified having a permanent board of bishops." The Second Vatican Council doc- uments also cautioned such con- ferences on infringing on the authority of the local bishop to rule his own diocese. To this possible problem, Bis- hop Bernardin answered: "I think all the bishops know that our con- ference is more for anexchange of ideas and to foster collegial con- cern for the Church in ourcountry and for the Universal Church. Nor- mally, the decisions of the con- ference are devoid of any juridical authority. We put this in our by-laws, specifying that to have binding force a decision of the conference would have to be in- troduced as such and receive a ma- jority vote of two-thirds of the members." Cardinal Dearden refined the notion even further by stating: "There is no longer any value in isolation, and as this notion grows, we bishops are going to become increasingly aware of our responsibility to the conference and to the Universal Church, as well as to the local Church. This sharing and cooperation in no way changes the authority of the local bishop, but I feel it makes us all a bit more aware of our respon- sibility in conscience to the con- terence."
