Tuesday Eve., March 31, 1953. Midnight Mass To Be Saturday At St. Bridget's Innovation Planned as Result of 1951 Decree by His Holiness, Pope Pius XII. A midnight Mass -on Saturday night at the St. Bridget's Catholic church will usher In the Feast ot Easter, an innovation resulting from a decree issued by Pope Pius XII in February. 1951, according to the Hev. Father Francis J. Meehan, pastor of the church. The customary Holy Saturday ceremonies will be held in the evening instead of Saturday afternoon. They will begin at 10:30 p.m. All of the customery ceremonies will be observed from the blessing of the New Fire to the blessing of the Baptismal Water, but these will all be in the front of the church where all may witness them and actively participate. Among the things which the members of the church will do in accord with the Holy Father's decree per. mitting on an experimental basil a return to the original Holy Saturday observance will be to sing the various responses, chant the Litany of the Saints and renew their Baptismal promises. Booklets Explain Ceremonies. In order that all may participate in an intelligent and orderly fashion In these new ceremonies Father Meehan has secured booklets containing all of the prayers and an explanation of each of the ceremonies in English. Most members of the parish already have the booklets and those who do not will be handed a copy as they enter the church for the vigil services next Saturday night. Father Meehan explained that every great feast of the church or. iginally had its preparatory eve- Five Perish In Iowa Mine LOVILIA, la. (UP.}— Two men were killed in a coal mine explo- ,sion . near here and, three others died later while investigating the blast, bringing total • deaths .to five authorities said'today. Sheriff Ray Cooley said five, men went into the mine Monday night to examine- causes and results of the. blast which killed'.Foreman Harold Barnes and miner Ben Nichols Monday afternoon while they were firing black powder shots to loosen coal. Cooley said the • -investigators "ran into damps," deadly asphyxiating gases. He said Tom Little, Pershing, la.; Gerald Lane, Bussey, la., and James Love, Loviiia, died. Two other men, Tom Wignal, Bussey, and O. B. Overturf, Lovilia, became violently ill after they emerged from the mine. Lane's body, he said, was brought almost to the mine entrance. He said the bodies of Little and Love were not recovered but "they are not alive." Bodies of Barnes and Nichols had been recovered earlier by work crews which burrowed through five feet of debris. The two men were about a quarter of a mile Within the mine, and from 90 to 120 feet below the surface of the earth.

LEWIS, Ind. (UP)—The thunder of exploding shells resumed in this ravaged community today following a night of quiet as demolition teams .continued clearing a five- mile area sprayed by live shells in the explosion of an ammunition train Saturday night. Teams of military demolition manently filed in the clerk's office The a- Worn out and Were M no r a h experts suspended operations Monday night because of danger involved. The job of uncovering an estimated 1,500 rounds of unexpended artillery shells was expected to take two or three more days. The town's 410 persons, forced to flee the series of explosions and shrapnel - Ignited fires that destroyed about a third of the village, returned to pick through their shattered homes in an attempt to salvage clothes and other personal effects.. But authorities said no one .had attempted to move back into the town. They 'said most had found shelter in the homes of friends and relatives. School Resumed Classes were resumed In Blackhawk School, which were transformed to the morning hours and some were abandoned altogether. For more than 1,000 years the Easter vigil services have been observed on Saturday morning, thus losing much of their symbolism and making it more difficult for people to attend. This let to the decree by Pope Pius XII permitting the return to the earlier observance at the option of the pastor. The St. Bridget church is the only local one avail, ing itself of this liturgical inno- vatfon. Father Meehan explained that Catholics attending the Midnight Mass fulfill their obligation of going to Mass on Easter. However, Father Meehan suggested that, wherever it can be easily done, that the members return to a later Mass, or many do after the Midnight Mass of Christmas. . All Catholics desiring to do so may go also to Holy Communion at the Mass at Midnight. They must observe the Eucharistic Fast from 10 p.m. That is, they may not eat or drink anything other than plain water from that hour and still go to Holy Communion. Father Meehan said he believes eventually the new vigil services for the great.Feast of Easter will be the general rule. Patty Berg Pockets First Prize Money NEW ORLEANS (UPJ — Plucky Patty Berg again displayed her mastery of the greens and fairways of the Country Club's bayou- laced course here by taking top money for the second time in two years in the New Orleans Women's Open golf tournament which ended Monday. Miss Berg had to battle, along with the others, the stiff winds, long distances and fast greens. But she had the added handicap of a painful wrist which has given her occasional trouble. Nevertheless, she toured the course with a four-over men's par 76 for a 54- hole total of 227 and 575. Mrs. Mildred (Babe) Zaharias of Tampa, Fla., had trouble with the greens and traps on the back nine after trailing by only one stroke at the start of the final round. Her 79 gave her a 231 total for S630 and second place. Trygve Lie appeared brighter today. The Big Five powers scheduled another secret session on the problem after Soviet Delegate Valerian A. Zorin indicated the Russians were still .very flexible on the problem. Lie continued to be pelted with criticism from non - Communist states for- his policies In firing Americans involved in federal security inquifies. French Delegate Henri Hoppe- not was particularly vigorous in criticizing the U.N.-diplomat. He told the General Assembly that unwarranted political dismissals as well as practices involving use of "doctored files" and the burning of records had killed the U.N.'s "team spirit." The virulence of this criticism— from one of thj big powers—apparently jeopardized the tentative U. S. plan to ask Lie to withdraw trie resignation he tendered last November and to serve until his term expires next February. Other western world nations that expressed c r i t i c -i s m were the Netherlands, Canada and Australia. The United States originally had hoped to complete negotiations for filling the top U.N. post by today —before the Russians take over presidency of the Security Council for April. But the Russian hints of possible "give" on the subject, coming on top of a general "peace" offensive, apparently induced the U. SI and its allies to defer the show- do wn.

WASHINGTON (UP) —The National Education Association said today there will be fewer than 35,000 newly qualified elementary teachers this fall to meet demands for 150,000. The figures came from a report prepared .by the NBA National Commission on teacher education and professional standards. The report said 1,500,000 more children j from the 'big baby crops of World War II — will crowd into grade schools this September and send enrollment to an all-time high. Enrollments are expected to increase each year by at least 1,000,000 through 1957, NBA said. The report said only 35,636 fully- trained teachers will graduate from college this year to cope with the flood of new pupils. Many of the graduates will choose other professions, be drafted, or quit teaching after short stints. New Classrooms The commission broke down its 160,000 help-wanted figure this way: At least 20,000 new teachers to man the new .classrooms to be built for the newcomers to school: 10,000 to relieve over crowding and eliminate half-day sessions now found in many areas; 10,000 to give instruction not now Included in many elementary school programs- 60,000 to replace those now teaching who are not wholly prepared to handle the job or In need of further training, and 60,000 as replacements for teachers who glut every year. Unless "unusual efforts" are made to furnish teachers better salaries and working conditions, Che association said the supply of teachers "will simply not stretch around the expanding enrollment."

The detonating crews worked in shifts, gathering the live' shells and exploding-them in craters dug by the original explosion. Before each blast, a loud speaker system warned people of the coming explosion. The railroad right of way was the first area cleared of the 105 and 155-millimeter shells, Surrounding fields still were studded with ammunition. Roads leading into the village remained closed to traffic and state police warned .curiosity- seekers against taking any of the shells for souveniers. Military, civil and railroad authorities sought a clue to the cause of the blasts; They believed a derailment of Milwaukee Road freight cars carrying ammunition may' have been responsible. The cars burst into flames at a crossing at the edge of town, send ing shells skyrocketing in a tremendous series of explosions.
