8A RACINE SUNDAY BULLETIN Sunday, July 11, 1965 mat 's Being Done About It? Possibility Increases Astronaut Could Find Self Marooned in Space —AP Wirephoto SINKS TEETH INTO TASK — Greg Burns, 18, of Oklahoma City, Okla., held his paint brush with his teeth as he worked on a sketch, one of many he has painted since embarking on an art career four years ago. Greg, his arms and legs restricted by arthrogryposis since birth, has won many awards including first place in the National Arts Materials Trade Association contest held earlier this year in Washington, D. C. Greg decided on making art a career when he discovered his younger brother profitably selling his sketches to their school friends. Several Catholic Publications Discuss Luci's Baptismal Rite (By the Associated Press) The baptismal rite marking the entry of Luci Baines Johnson into the Roman Catholic Church was a matter of discussion Saturday in several diocesan newspapers. Generally the Catholic publications saw the procedure as theologically unnecessary. But they said it has been a widespread practice. And they deplored the publicity surrounding it. Some of them also emphasized that the individual episode should not be viewed as an index of over-all interchurch relationships. The Evangelist, of the Albany, N.Y., diocese, said the outburst about the affair gave the impression that "the whole ecumenical movement is suddenly being brought to a halt." The editorial added: 'The foundations upon which the efforts toward Christian unity are built would be pathetically unstable if an incident of this nature could cause them to crumble." Roman Catholicism recognizes properly administered baptisms in any church as valid. Church leaders have regularly cited baptism as the basic tie binding all Christians together. Episcopal Baptism The president's daughter had been baptized in the Episcopal Church when she was a child. Taking note of this, the Rev. Edmond Bliven, editorial page editor of the Catholic Sentinel, official paper of the archdiocese of Portland, Ore., and the diocese of Baker, Ore., commented: "There is no reason to question the validity of Episcopal baptisms and therefore no reason for 'baptizing' converts; what Bishop James A. Pike of California, had objected to the "rebaptism" of Miss Johnson as a slur against his church, a sacrilege and a denigration of a previous sacrament. Conditional baptism—as in her case—is used when there from the Episcopal even conditionally." Some Protestants, is uncertainty about prior baptism. It has been practiced extensively for Protestant converts to Catholicism. The National Catholic Reporter, published in Kansas City and circulated across the country, said that apparently "there was no necessity or justification" for conditionally baptizing Miss Johnson. Pike Is Criticized If she did not understand this, "it should have been explained to her," the editorial said, but added that the "vociferous protest" by Bishop Pike "magnifies the incident" and "creates unnecessary embarrassment for an 18-year- old girl. . , . It is good to defend the sacrament from any shadow of abuse, and a moderately phrased and courteous protest might have been appropriate in view of the publicity surrounding Miss Johnson's reception. But Bishop Pike surely knows that conditional baptism, even if clearly superfluous, is not and cannot be a second baptism, so there is no question of 'sacrilege'." The Catholic weekly of the diocese of Mobile-Birmingham, Ala., regretted what it called the "sensationalism and heated theological discussion" about an event Miss Johnson considered "one of the happiest days" of her life. The editorial added: Miss Point "The priest, who did simply practically every other science of the convert to Catholicism, finds himself faulted by some ecumerfically- minded clergy who miss the vital point of the practical pastoral care of souls." Miss Johnson on her change of church, had requested that the rite be carried out anew. The Catholic weekly said the matter "points up the danger of trying to stretch top- level Christian unity programs down to cover all the lower and more prosaic details of daily pastoral care of souls," and added: "Is there a single Catholic priest in the U.S. who would have refused her? Or, if conditions had been reversed, where is there an Episcopal minister who would have refused her?" However, a Protestant leader, the Rev. Dr. Fredrik A. Schiotz, of Minneapolis, president of the American Lutheran Church, said the fact that the "baptism" was carried out at an individual's request was disturbing. Expresses Another View "It suggests an inadequate pastoral ministry during the period of instruction," he said. "The sacrament's meaning is thus obliterated and it becomes a psychological device to serve the feelings of an individual." In Christian belief, baptism permanently unites a person with Christ and His help. The Albany, N.Y., diocesan paper said that "the very use of the conditional form is an affirmation, rather than a denial of Protestant baptism." Had the prior Episcopal baptism been considered invalid. Miss Johnson simply would have been baptized anew, not conditionally, a spokesman said. In Washington, D.C., where the conditional baptism was administered by the Rev. James F. Montgomery, Arch-j bishop Patrick A. O'Boyle, has said the procedure did not imply the earlier baptism was ! invalid.

Williams (AP Aerospace Writer) HOUSTON, Texas —{JP)— To be marooned in space is a thought that strikes terror in an astronaut's heart. It hasn't happened yet, as far as is known, to either United States spacemen or to Russian cosmonauts. But with manned space flights steadily increasing, the possibility increases. What is being done? Martin Co., makers of the powerful Titan rocket boosters which are now hurling Gemini astronauts into orbit, the Air Force and the Manned Spacecraft Center have been studying the matter for some time. One Plan One plan is to train a special crew to man a Titan 3C rescue rocket. It would be cocked and ready-to-fly at a minute's notice, poised for any emergency, on a launching pad at Cape Kennedy. This plan has been ad vanced by Martin Co. It is being mulled over by U.S. of ficials in Washington. If it is accepted, it isn't likely to be operational for some time be cause the Titan 3C only com pleted its maiden flight last month. Manned Spacecraft Center Assistant Director for En gineering and Development Max Faget (Few-Jay) says Titan rocket ready for rescue work would be like putting life guards on a beach where practically nobody goes swimming. A Gemini two-man space capsule fits perfectly on the Johnson Approves Maine Power Project JOHNSON CITY, Teaxs (i?*)—President Johnson approved Saturday night a $237- million power project for northern Maine but disclosed no decision on the long-discussed plans to harness the tremendous tides of the Bay of Fundy. The program announced at the Texas White House calls for a multipurpose project on the St. John River where it forms the border between Maine and Canada. Its construction is contingent upon an agreement with the Canadian government since the proposed reservoir would flood some Canadian territory. Site for Dam The site for the dam, at the Dickey-Lincoln school site on the St. John, is approximately 150 miles northwest of Pas- samaquoddy Bay which extends northward off the Bay of Fundy. Italy Allots Funds for Tornado Victims ROME —m— The government Saturday earmarked 24.8 billion lire ($39,680,000) in emergency aid for north Italian areas hit by a killer tornado last Saturday. The tornado, combined with a blistering heat wave in the south, took 25 lives. Homes, crops and power lines were destroyed or damaged in the tornado area. For many decades there has been discussion of projects to harness the powerful tides of the 'Quoddy area. But the White House announcement indicated this ambitious idea will be left for continued studies. Johnson announced he has approved and will send to Congress a report based on a four-year study which outlines a broad program for resources development in the New England area. Recreation Benefits The project recommended for immediate authorization would generate 794,000 kilowatts of power, more than five times larger than any hydroelectric project in the area. It also would provide flood control and recreation benefits. Johnson announced that Secy, of the Interior Stewart L. Udall will continue studies on the economic feasibility of the international Passama- quoddy tidal power project, taking into account the economics resulting from advances in extra-high-voltage transmission technology. In addition to power development, Johnson asked additional steps to develop the natural resources of the area. He mentioned the possibility of further development of Campobello Island, former summer home of Franklin D. Roosevelt, and the preservation of Allagash river for recreational use. Titan rockets. In fact, they were developed for each other. Times when a spaceman might need to be rescued include a collision with a meteor, a puncture of the tough, metal skin of a spacecraft, internal power failures, or loss retro-rockets — which slow the spaceship down as it passes through the dense atmosphere to land. Or an astronaut could become sick, and a rescue ship could remove the ill spaceman and allow the mission to continue. Better Use of Money Faget, who says he is not against space rescue — "We will need it someday" — maintains that money spent on a rescue system could be better used to perfect the spacecraft and its systems to that rescue wouldn't be needed. "We have included so many backup safety systems in the spacecraft," he says, 'that an astronaut in space flight is safer than when he is driving his own car." Martin officials point out the value to U .S. prestige if Russian cosmonaut were marooned in space and this country's rescue system could save him. However, it isn't known for sure whether the Soviets are working on some rescue system of their own. As one space official said, "It is like that old saying, You don't need to fix the hole in the roof when it isn't raining.' But when it does rain — watch out."

School Board President Terms Plea by Barbee Ironic MILWAUKEE—(^)—A request that federal educational funds be withheld from Milwaukee because of alleged segregation has been called ironic" by School Board Pres. John F. Foley. The funds, Foley said, "are used substantially in culturally deprived areas, including the central city." Assemblyman Lloyd A. Barbee, D - Milwaukee, only Negro member of the Legislature, sent the withholding request to the Department of Health, Education and Welfare. He said of Foley's comment. "As an ignorant president of an arrogant school board, I would expect as much. The majority of the federal funds available to the Milwaukee public school system would not aid the central city area." Barbee is also an attorney for plaintiffs in a pending federal suit charging "de facto" segregation of Milwau-, kee schools. ; 'Buzzing' Student Drivers Costs 'Dropout', 18, $100 MILWAUKEE — (JP) —An 18 - year - old driving school dropout was find $100 Saturday after three instructors testified he annoyed student drivers by "buzzing" them in his car. The youthful offender, Robert Lueschen, pleaded guilty to a reckless driving charge before County Judge John E. Krueger. The instructors told the court that Lueschen would zoom past driving training cars and cut in front of them. They said Lueschen dropped out of the Custer High School driving course before taking road instructions. Lueschen was arrested when he drove into the school parking lot and made a tight turn with tires squealing, narrowly missing several children who were standing in line to go swimming in the school pool. Teachers called police. ^AUVAYS FIRST QUAUTY iJkUTO CBNTBI ELMWOOD PLAZA AUTO CENTER expert engine tune-up includes parts and labor... 13?L 16 4 cn. 88 8 CYL.
