ADDRESSES CATHOLIC ALUMNAE Says 'H, 9 "ty Needs CINCINNATI--(NC)--Woman's place is in the home, but a "home" takes in more than the four walls of her house. This was the message of Msgr. Joseph B. McAllister, national director of the International Federation of Catholic Alumnae, in his keynote address at the federation's 47th anniversary con- vention here. "Destined for the Home" Msgr. McAllister, vice rector of the Catholic University of America, Washington, D. C emphasized that "women are naturally and primarily destin- ed for the home. Their talents and capacities prepare them in a special way for building and preserving it. Their work in the home is of the vastest impor- tance. . ." But he went on to say that "the concept of home and fam- ily needs broadening in terms of contemporary u r b a n cul- ture." 'Home" Extends to Community "Quite generally," he said, *'it embraces more than one's own household. Today, home and family extend out into the community, into schools and li- braries and museums, in t o highways, p a r k s, and play- grounds, to the neighborhood movie and the corner drug- store. "The modern home cannot be isolated or quarantined from the community. Home environ- ment in its completeness must be considered, and t h i s is largely woman's task " Recalls Aims The Monsignor recalled the aims of the IFCA when it was founded in 1914 "to bring into communication the various dis- tinct Catholic alumnae associa- tions, for the purpose of up~ ROCKFORD . . . i ADVERTISEM:E?~ One hundred years J of Know-how . . . at'l your service.'

"T " " he needs which gave deft nition and urgency to federa- tion objectives in 1914 exist ever more implacably in 1961," Msgr. Mc,llister declared. "What was an embryo threat then has become a horrendous monster preying on the entire world, but most viciously and slyly attacking Christianity and its God-centered concepts of man and society," he main- tained.
