Use of the prayer in public schools had been challenged by the New York Civil Liberties union in a suit brought in behalf of five residents of the Herricks school district of Nassau county. The plaintiffs charged that publicly supported facilities, such as public schools, may not be used for prayer and other re- ligious devotions. They charged violation of church-state separa- tion. "Not Religiou~ Education" In one of the three majority opinions written for the ease, Chief Judge Charles S. Desmond said the prayer is not religious education, nor is it "the practice of or establishment of religion in Bishop to Hold lergy Retreat or Protestants COVINGTON, Ky. --- (NC) -- Bishop John J. Wright of Pitts- burgh will conduct a retreat for Protestant clergymen Septem- ber 12 to 14 at the Marydale Re- treat House here. Father Thomas F. Middendorf, executive secretary of the No- tional Catholic Retreat confer- ence, said the retreat was plan- ned because of interest express- ed by several Protestant cler- gymen in the Catholic retreat movement Bishop Richard H. Ackerman, C.S.Sp of Covington has auth- orized the use of diocesan re- treat facilities for the special retreat. Bishop Wright is epis- copal adviser of the retreat movement in the U.S. "to stretch the so-called separa- tion of church and state doctrine beyond reason." In a dissent, Associate Justice Marvin R. Dye called the prayer "a form of state-sponsored reli- :ious education " He said its use overstepped "a clearly de- fined line of demarcation be- tween church and state." CardinalRaps Disinterest Over Latins WORCHESTER, Mass (NC) -- Richard Cardinal Cushingl has pointed up an apparent dis-: interest in this country for Cath- olics of Latin America [ In a mission appeal at Our I Lady of the Angels church, the Archbishop of Boston s a i d American prelates talk about a clergy shortage in U. S. dio- ceses while millions of baptiz- ed Catholics in Latin America are "completely ignorant" of their faith. Many young priests have v01- unteered to work in L a t i n America, but their bishops re- fuse permission because of their own "clergy shortage," t h e Cardinal declared. T h e Cardinal emphasized there is one priest for every 700 Catholics in the United states compared with one for every 10,000 in Latin America The Cardinal said he is "firmly convinced" Catholicism can defeat communism south of the Rio Grande. "We have been told we are doing too little, too late," he said. He added that he didn't believe it.

"Also avoid everything ex- traordinary, beloved sons, and seek on the contrary that Mar- ian devotion which is most as- sured by tradition, such as has been handed down to us from the beginning through the for- mulas of prayers of the succes- sive generations of Christians who came from the East and the West."
