Ursuline Alums Receive Challenge at Convention Ursuline Alumnae delegates of the Central Province were told at a panel discussion Saturday in Marquette High School that their most important challenge is to think, to read and to remember that "You are the church." The Rev. John L. Thomas, S.J., of St. Louis University told his audience the great tragedy today is that many of us haven't bothered to seek out church teachings, and therefore have an utter inability to think in terms of Christian principles. He suggested that each woman ask herself the questions, "What do we stand for; and if we are Christians, what are the consequences?" He advised, "Learn to read, and to find the answers to these questions. Then move forward in your Christian apostolate in the practice of charity." Dr. John J. Glynn of the Southern Illinois University faculty presented the challenge of alumnae members in the community. He said there was much to be done in com- batting the steady erosion of Christian values, and "spiritual weightlessness." Each individual, he said, must N> a part of the community and participate in community activities in order to preserve and enrich our Christian education. Mrs. J. F. Schlafly Jr., commenting on the challenge in the family, stressed that our children must be taught personal responsibility for their own moral conduct; and personal responsibility to protect political freedom. She stated that the greatest current hindrances to the building of moral character uprc pornography, subversive propaganda, morally objectionable movies, and certain types of television entertainment Miss Helen Whalen moderated the panel discussion attended by some 100 members of the affiliated Ursuline Alumnae Association. Preceding the panel, luncheon was served tor HO women In the Stratford Hotel who heard an address by Mrs. Walter F. Riley of Chi- raffo.
