PAGE 12 THE GUARDIAN, DECEMBER 4, 1970 'Hippies' Likened to St. Francis of Assisi St. Louis -- Cardinal John J. Wright, the only American to head one of the major divisions of the worldwide church, came to St. Louis recently and related that the international hippie contingent that crowds Rome's Piazza di Espagna has "a great hunger for religion. They are in Rome and they are looking for something." Street conversations with the youth, Cardinal Wright told a news conference, reveal them to be very conversant with the church. "They know all about us and our weaknesses. They are not disinterested; in fact, they'll hound you up the street with questions." KENKEL LECTURER During his visit to St. Louis, Cardinal Wright addressed some 850 persons on the "Catholic Prin- ciples of Renewal," in one of the series of F. P. Kenkel Lectures arranged here by the Central Bureau of the Central Catholic Union. The Cardinal, who heads the Sacred Congregation of the Clergy, said the present mood of the U.S. "causes me to be concerned more about the state of the temporal order than that of the church. In my own ,ative Commonwealth of Massachusetts, during 1969, a total of 19 college and univer- sity presidents resigned because the job got too much for them. Not one bishop did." However, he does not find to- day's young people formed in tile mold of the social revolution- aries of pre-Napoleonic France.

Fletcher of Little Rock among its mem- bers, was informed at its recent annual meeting here that reliable estimates indicate church van- dalism -this year will total more than $100-million. This was reported to the 20- member board, comprised ex- clusively of American Bishops, to acquaint them with the scope of the problem and to enable them to study ways of coping with it. The CMRS is an 81-year- old church-related organization that confines itself to the temporal affairs of the church. Archbishop Daniel E. Sheehan of Omaha, the society president, reported at the meeting that, despite adverse economic trends nationally, the self-insurance fund of CRMS recorded significant gains. Th r ee dioceses -- Am- arillo, Fort Worth and St. Cloud -- increased to 175 the number of doceses and religious orders using the society's services.
