B I I I I I li I Bishops Protest Against Reds FULDA, Germany--A protest against 1 i m i t a t i o n of the Church's freedom in Red-dom- inated East Germany was made by the Catholic Bishops of Ger- many at their annual meeting here. The Bishops declared: "For the first time since the war-- even since time immemorial -- it happens t h a t the German " bishops (of the Soviet zone) are prevented by political authori- ties from attending the annual meeting at Futda." "We solemnly protest this vio- lation of the Church's freedom, ' the Bishops said, "and declare our unalterable unity with our fellow members of the Bishops' conference and all our brothers and sisters, across all barriers.

Votes $100,000 to Train Priests PITTBURGH -- The First Catholic Union of the U.S. End Canada has voted $100.000 for the assistance of the SS. Cyril a n d Method[us Institute in Rome. which trains priests for the apostolate in Slovakia. The action was taken at the 34th triannual convention Of the union, which was founded in September, 1890. in Cleveland and claims a membership of over 101,000 and assets of some $28 million. The union also voted $125.000 for the chapel of the Sorrowful M6ther, patroriess of Siovakia, at the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, Wash- ington, D.C.; $20.000 to assist strict order religious institu- tions in the U.S.: and $5,000 for the Slovak Benedictine Fathers in Cleveland. DISCUSS ANNIVERSARY PARADE PLANS--Lawrence J. Arbisi, parade chairman for the golden jubilee celebration of St. Elizabeth Social center Oct. 15 points out an interesting item in an article on parades and conventions to Sam Vecchio, float chairman, and Mrs. Barbara Ro- man, jubilee Co-chairman. The incident took place during a recent meeting of committees for the jubilee to complete plans for the various phases of the all-day celebration. Besides the pa- rades, plans have also been made for a $olemnPontifleal High Mass and a banquet at Boylan Central Catholic high school. (Photo by P. J. LaFranea) a Prelate Sees Need for Values MT.

Set Bishop's (Continued from page 1) by the National Council are par- tially underwritten by annual dues of $10 per affiliate. In the Rockford diocese, there are 125 member groups and national dues for each are paid from the Bishop's Fund, thus relieving an added burden to tl]ose societies. This is but one item for which the Fund is used. Explains Fund Use The major portion of the Bish- op's Fund is used by committee chairmen in carrying out the Bishop's requests for specific action in all parish and inter- parochial societies of Rockford diocese. Efforts of diocesan and deanery chairmen are guided by priest-moderators: programs are activated in parishes with the approval of the pastor. Without their counsel and sanction, the work of the Council of Catholic Women would be ineffective. The date of the annual Bish- op's Fund for Catholic Action is Sunday, Sept. 24. The volun- tary donation of every Catholic woman in the diocese will help bring about the specific action requested for our diocese. Mrs. Joseph Wiedemann. Fr.

Workers In The Vineyard By Lisa Ferris Catholic Charities Staff What to write about in our col- umn was the question. Although the agency is a rich source for stories, some sad, some happy, some bizarre or unbelievable, there are moments when the home front appears inactive. But not for long! Our story today is about a man we shall call Mike O'Flaggerty, enroute from Du- luth, Minn shipping ports, bound for Boston, Mass. Mr. O'- Flaggerty said ke was 48 years of age, single and a merchant seaman of 31 years' experience. He spoke of ports and countries where he has been over the years-. . . India, Africa, Brazil, Australia, China, Hawaii and many, many others. These far Community Chest Agency In reply to the question, "What kind of living did you make in the 31 years of sea duty?" he answered, "While on a Mattson line, from India to South Ameri- ca to the United States, a voy- age of seven months, I made $4,- 200. Each port was a place to sightsee, drink and be merry." His money dwindled. "I've squandered it, given it away, gambled and used money to no advantage." As to the cargo which he has transported throughout t h e world, Mr. O'Flaggerty remark- ed: "I've been on ships carry- ing nearly everything . . . guns, coal, oil, magnesium, food, trucks and clothing. The world~t seems small when you sail the~ away places emerged as excit- seas as I've done for 31 years." ing and interesting as our sailor. with his Irish brogue described them clearly to us. The ports of the world were here in our court- selling room. Our visitor was tanned and bronzed from the sea winds, and his face brightened up as he re- lived his seagoing days. Tattoos covered his arms and hands, souvenirs of many voyages. During World War II, ship- wrecked, he and the surviving crew landed on Canton island in the Pacific. Assigned as an elec- trician for the army, he spent seven months building electrical units there. Today, however, our seaman is looking for a place to settle down. His knuckles, as he said, are broken from too many care fights and seaman scraps. He feels at 48 years of age life must be easier on land than the roam- ing seas. Mr. O'Flaggerty plans to look up other seafaring men in Bos- ton who have long retired from their active careers. But for to- day Mr. O'Flaggerty was assist- ed by Catholic Charities to make his way a little easier as he tra- vels east. Such is the story told us by a man who has traveled the world over.
