Illinois Birth Control Plan Hit as 'Bad Policy' Chicago, (D--The Vicar Gen- eral of the Chicago archdiocese has described as "bad policy" the decision to use state funds to supply birth control services to many persons on public re- ticf.

Besides the individual graves and (rypts and mausoleums, the great statutes here and there in tie cemetery were piled high with bouquets of flowers. It was ' all a great tribute to the love ance" to any recipient of pub- lic welfare aid with a spouse or a child who asks for such aid. Tax funds will be used to pay physicians a[ad to purchase de- vices and pffescriptions doctors recommend, including tile colt- trovershi "birth control pill." Msgr. Casey, asked for com- ment on the decision to adopt the ploposal which Catholics had vigorously opposed in pub- lic hearings, said: "If I undeIstand the final form of the policy . . . public state funds may be used for services and prescriptions for artificial birth control not only for relief recipients living with ther legitimate spouse, but also for unwed mothers.

On the two side walls are the vaults on each of which is inscribed the)aame of the deceased, his diocese, and the date of his death. I did not count tile numher of those buried there, but 1 would now judge about 24. My brother George's vault is to the right as you enter the chapel on tile bottom row. I always say Mass at the crypt whenever I go to Rome. My first time was in 1934 when I accoml)anied Bishop Morris to Rome. Father DeClerk had been ordained a short time before, and Msgr. Lafferty was a deacon. Both were students at the North American College and made preparations for Bish- op Morris and mc to say Mass at tile crypt. It does not seem like forty years since my brother died, At that time I had been ordained onlY two years. But a lot of things have haPl)ened since then. I would never have thought in 1922 that forty years from that time, I would be in Rome for the Second Vatican Council. It is good that only God knows the future. It is much better for all of us to be able to look back and see how the good Lord has given us the grace to bear each cross as it came. I know you will be interested in a visit Msgr. Graves and I paid Cardinal Cicognani. At this visit 1 intended to do two things: See my friend, the Car- dinal, who consecrated me in 1940 while he was Apostolic Delegate to the United States. I wished also to entrust to him, for personal delivery to the tile faithful of the Diocese of Little Rock. I was proud to give him this check for eight thou- sand dollars, and I could see that he was surprised to receive' such a generous amount from our small diocese. It represented almost twenty cents for each Catholic man woman and child of the diocese. I did not know exactly how to make the check payable and the Cardinal told me to make it out personally to the Holy Father. He took me to the desk ill his study and I wrote "H.It. Pope John XXIII." Before leaving, the Cardinal showed Msgr. Graves a large beck on the center table of his parlor. It contained the photo- graphs of all the sixty bishops he consecrated while Apostolic Delegate of l:le U.S. My picture was among the first in .the book since I Was the eightll bishop he consec|'ated. For me, that picture is now a good l)oi|t for meditation, it shows very graphically what twenty two years will do for a man's phys- iognomy. Finally, the Cardinal asked me to assure you that he would personally present your gift to the Holy Father. He knew the Holy Father would acknowledge it personally as soon as he was able. But in the meantime, he knew the Itoly Father would want him to tell you how grate- ful he is for your prayers for him, for the Council and for your kind and generous thought- fulness of him and his problems as manifested by your wonder- ful gift. ' Greetings, good wishes and prayers for all of you. Am cer- tainly anxious to get back home. Holy Father, that generous gift Will try to write one more let- which you had made to the Holy ,ter before leaving. God bless Fatller to help him pay for the you. expenses of the Council. I wish Bishop Fletcher it would have been possible to give your gift to tile Holy Father personally but, with 2500 bishops in Rome, it is simply impossible ior lfim to grant private audiences at this time when he is so burdened with the great work of the Council. I considered myself fortunate in having the Cardinal, the Holy Father's own Secretary of State, make the presentation of your gift. Msgr. Graves and I were scheduled to see the Cardinal at the Secretary of State's Of- rices at 4:30 P.M. The entrance to these offices is located on the west side of the Court of San Damaso (The Holy Father's apartments are on the east side of the Court, overlooking the great Piazza in front of St. Peter's to the south). We took all elevator upstairs and were escorted by one of the noble guards to the Cardinal's apart- ments. There we were met by a Sister who must have been one of those in charge of tile Cardinal's household. She seemed to know who we were, for" without asking any ques- tions, she ushered us into the Cardinal's parlor. We did not have long to wait. We had a real homelike visit. We talked about Little Rock and Arkansas; about tile wonderful Public Schools Assist Parish Swept by Fire Paterson, N.J., (l)Two pub- lic schools have come to the aid of St. Stephen's combina- tion church and school here, which was severely damaged by fire.
