The priests freed are Fathers Antonio Cechim, a professor at Christ the King seminary here; Edgar Jotz, of St. Cecilia parish; Johannes L. Verdonscht, a Dutch missionary, and former Spanish seminarian, Camile Bornee Gap cia. Under detention in religious houses are Fathers Marcelo Pinto Cavalheiro, rector of the Northeast regional seminary; Manuel Yasconcelos Valiente of Our Lady of Piedad parish and Brother HermanoCurten, a student at Christes Sacerdos Institute. They were questioned on suspi- cion of aiding a young Domini- can, Brother Carlos Alberto Christo, known as Brother Beto, in his attempt to escape into Uru, guay. Brother Beto is described by police as a key link in the es- cape route to the south for mem- bers of urban guerrilla bands op- erating in Rio de Janetro, Sao Paulo, Porto Alegre and other cities since the beginning of this year. He is scheduled to stand trial at Sao Paulo alongwithother Dom- inicans charged with aiding Mari- ghela, slain there on Nov. 4. Two of the Dominicans were persuaded by police while undergoing inter- rogation to help in the ambush of the guerrilla leader. Brother Betp was brought out for a brief presentation before the local press, and gave an ac- count of conspiracy plans to launch a guerrilla offensive in southern Brazil. In the same interview the head Pope CONTINUED Vietnam, which now has been go- ing on for years without any pro- spective solution on the military level and which is costing so much in expenditures of means, and above all, in human lives. "We feel we can say that no one desires more than we do that the war, anii every other war, should cease;, and it is our fer- vent desire that it may cease "e note with satisfaction that { also the resolve, newly affi}med recently, of your illus- trious President and we cannot but encourage him In this.

We are confidently hopeful that all those who have a part in the Vietnam war may help make the negotiations now being held easier and speedier for each other and that those negotiations may very soon lead, not only to the end of the conflict, but also to peace, to true and lasting peace."

Jayme Mariath, exhi- bred subversive material he said was found in the Brother's posses- sion. Alfredo Cardinal Scherer of Porte Alegre and the priests' council defended the Domini- cans arrested for aiding fugi- tives, saying they did not know at the time if those fleeing were common criminals or political ac- tivisits. The statement recognized the need for the authorities to check the communist conspiracy. Italso condemned violence. "But we recognize the Chris- tian courage that may inspire the well intentioned help to refugees and fugitives, when at the moment of giving comfort and aid, the giver does not have sufficient In- formation to determine whether they are fleeing because of com- mon crimes or because of the so-called political crimes," the Arrested Priests Freed from Convent Medellin, Colombia (NC)-- Four priests arrested in October on charges of fostering subversive activity at the state university of Antioquia have been released after serving 30 days house arrest in a convent. The priests' transfer from jail to house arrest was obtained for them by Archbishop Tuilio Bolero Salazar of Medellin after they had been jailed in lieu of a $35 bond imposed by a judge here. After their release, the priests pledged that they will "continue the struggle for the liberation of the people." The priests belong to the Gol- conda movement, a social reform drive now boycotting the 1970 national elections as a "mockery."

The fact that Cardinal Scherer, considered a conservative, signed the document questioning the full guilt of the Dominicans, seems to have had some weight with the authorities. The priests' council statement said it recognized "the right and obligation of authorities to watch over and maintain public order, and to punish violations, once prov- ed, provided the right of defense and other human rights are obser- ved." "We are not seeking special pri- vileges or exceptions for mem- bers of the clergy or of the reli- gious Orders, within the field of civil responsibility," the state- ment said. "We condemn violence, terror- ism and robbery as activities which openly contradict the teach- ings and the spirit of the Bible." Officials of the Brazilian Bis- hops' Conference have expressed concern over the arrests and the alleged causes, but have declined to make public statements while their own investigation takes place in Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo and Porto Alegre. L'Osservatore Raps Dissenters On New Mass Ordo as Inconsistent Vatican City (NC) -- A writer in the Vatican City daily has ac- cused some Christians of using the Pope as a "disposable cov- er" for their own private opin- ions or as a pretext to keep their adversaries in check. In an article in L'Osservalore Romano, Father Virgilio Levi, as- serted that opposition to the new Order of the Mass is coming from the very quarters that defen- ded the papal condemnation of contraception in the encyclical Hu- manae Vitae. He demanded to know what has happened to"faith in the mission of Peter." "When Humanae Vitae ap- peared, many people who had enthusiastically hailed Populorum Progression (the encyclical on in- ternational development) dis- covered unexpectedly that the in- trinsic magisterial (teaching) force of an encyclical is quite doubtful and arguable," Father Levi said. "How consistent they were, the readers may see for themselves. "Now the new rite of the Mass comes along. The Pope promul- gates it with the fullness of his authority. It would appear that at least all the recent defenders of Humanae Vitae would be there to support its validity and legi- timacy. But no. It is from their very ranks that criticisms and contestations arise. The new rite would be a yielding to Protestant theology, which des- troyed the sacrifice of the Mass. It would lead to the total disor- ientation of the faithful, who are already giving signs of impa- tience and of unmistakable lessen- ing of faith."
