Pope's Mass for Peace— Giant Yankee Stadium Was Solemn Outdoor Cathedra By PETER J. SHAW NEW YORK (UPD — Pope Paul VI stood majestically beneath a paler gold canopy • in chilly Yankee. Stadium Monday night and offered to God and the multitudes a dramatic. ilMs- tfatipn ..-of the spirit ,of peace and goodwill. .' The pontiff's stirring "Mass for peace," spiritual highlight of -his New York visit, sparkled not onty as a colorful religous spectacle but .also as an exam- e of the Vatican Council-in- spire'd "new- Mass." Its recurring theme of peace and brotherhood movingly underscored Pope Paul's quest for a world frefe from war and hatred; a hope he put before the United Nations earlier with The Lighter Side- T-5 7 s Won War- Just Ask Dick By DICK WEST WASHINGTON (UPI) — The Pacific Stars and Stripes, a swinging newspaper published for the U.S. armed forces in the Far East, is celebrating, its 20th anniversary this week.. By coincidence, it also was 20 years ago this week that I was mustered out of the armed forces ,as probably -the highest ranking technician-fifth grade (T-5) in the U.S. Army. I suppose that many of the present readers of Stars and Stripes never even heard of ttat-rank. The Army; in a-typi- tal humane gesture, dropped it sometime after World War n. I'm not sure why the rating isn't used any more, but I like to think the Army retired it in my honor. Anyone who. .remained a T-5 for three years certainly deserves some kind of recognition. We T-5's ranked somewhere between a PEC and a Corporal. from Our LES That may sound impossible, but t's true. Viewing Bold Career lit may have been my distinguished military career that prompted the editors of Pacific S&S to invite me to contribute something to their special anniversary- edition. -Unfortunately, the request ar- ived while I was on vacation and I did not return in time to meet the deadline. However, I would like to offer congratula- ions and to say that, apart from the disappearance of T- 5's, the armed forces apparently haven't changed very much in the past 20 years. I have before me now a recent Air Force directive that somehow seems hauntingly familiar. According to a publication in which it appears, some of the key points are as follows: —Airmen must stop designing their own name tags. Tags of "various sizes, shapes, olors and embellishments such as Oct. 5, 1950 t Mr. and Mrs. Ike White received word that their son, Cpl. Robert L. White, was seriously wounded in action in Korea on Sept. 5. Joe Galbraith had been elected president of the Eastern Indiana K. of P. Past Chancellors' Association.

Revival services were in progress at the Sardinia Baptisl Church with Rev. M. F. Strunk bringing the messages. Mr. and Mrs. Neil Bowen o) Sardinia were on a vacation trip to Michigan. The weather was: Maximum, 64; minimum, 38. Mr. and Mrs. James Kaylor Jr. of St. Paul were home after a trip to Texas and Mexico. The annual party for teachers in the Greensburg public schools was held at th Saddle Club with about 65 "attending. A daughter was born to Mr. and Mrs. Robert Wehner. Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Wallpe became parents of a ^daughter. Mr. and Mrs. Frank Stuhrenberg of Westport had a new eon. i i Unsuccessful ' MUSKEGON, Mich. (UPI) — Students at Muskegon Couny Community College are going to have to do better in their fire drills than, they did Monday. Firemen said some students took time to grab lunches and clothing from lockers and then sauntered out of the building. One class didn't know what the bell meant and just sat there, while in other classes the i bell was ignored. i Firemen termed the drill i unsuccessful, ' the fervent plea,. "No more war! War never again! It is peace which must guide the destinies of peoples." In his homily, or sermon, the 'ope declared: "If we truly wish to be Christians, we must love peace, we must make our own the cause of peace, we must meditate on the real meaning of peace, we must conform our minds to the thought of peace." 90,000 in Stadium For one cold, windy autumn evening, the warmth and humbleness of the slender Vatican ruler transformed cavernous Yankee Stadium into a solemn outdoor cathedral. More .than 90,000 persons were packed into the stadium where the Yankee baseball greats — DiMaggio, Ruth, Gehrig, Mantle — drew cheers and jeers but never such a respectful crowd. Millions more watched on worldwide live television. Booming cheers and applause greeted Pope Paul the moment lis open limousine rolled into the stadium. He left in triumph to the thunderous chant, "long live the Pope!" The Pope brought his international goodwill mission into a ball park divested of all sports trappings. Royal blue clott bunting cloaked the outfield fence signboards and the huge Scoreboard was blacked out. Flags of the United States, the United Nations and the Vatican flapped on standards atop the stadium ramparts that usually bear the pennants of the American and National League baseball clubs. grades, initials and definitely are not regu- titles, crests lation. No "Ivy League" —Airmen must cease tapering the legs of uniform trousers "to conform to current civilian style trends." —No chevrons on raincoats. It makes them leak. The Air Force "has determined that the need to identify an enlisted man's grade when he is wearing a raincoat is not as important as keeping the raincoat waterproof." —"Alter Oct. 15, the top button and buttonhole on shade 1505 shirt will be eliminated. These decisions, it says, "re fleet the collective judgement of a number of senior Air Force officers supplemented by technical assistance from specialized agencies and industry, if appropriate." Buttonhole elimination has always been a senior officer prerogative. But any military historian can tell you that techni- clans-fifth grade won the war. Purdue to Expand Calumet Campus HAMMOND, Ind. (UPI)—Pur due University President Fred erick Hovde Monday told civic leaders of the school's plans for expansion of its Calumet re gional campus, which he sai( would have an enrollment o" 10,000 by 1975. "Our intentions are not basee on mere wishful thinking,' Hovde said. "We expect to face critical problems in supplying the faculty and facilities whicl we are certain this region will need in the next decade." "The growth of population and the need for educationa opportunity in this region is si great that all both institution can do will hardly be -enougl despite our greatest efforts,' Hovde said. He referred to Indiana Univer siity, which he said was ex pecting a similar growth at its Northwest Regional Campus a Gary.
