The changes will take effect school with the 1974-75 school year. While emphasizing the dislinc- t i v e n e s s of the religiously oriented Catholic education sys- tem, the new design will look much like the administrative relationships i n the public Rapids school system. The metropolitan system coordinator will also become the executive coordinator of both LaSalle and Regis high schools. He will operate in the area of boards, budgets, com- m n n i t y relations, govern- mental affairs, public rela- tions, etc. The principals of LaSalle and Regis high schools will each function as instructional leader and highest administrative of- ficer at each school. Together the three will form an adminis- trative team. The Rev. James Sullivan, pre- sently system coordinator and high school principal at Aquin in Cascade, will assume the chief administrative position in the Cedar Rapids Catholic system. The Rev. Donald Klein, present assistant principal at Regis, will assume the duties as principal because the Rev. Ernest Knglcr, present prin- cipal, requested work in the parish ministry. The Rev. Donald Schmilt, pre- sently principal of St. John high school, Independence, will be- come the new LaSalle high principal replacing the Rev. Walter Kleinfehn who re- quested greater participation in the parish pastoral ministry. The Rev. Daniel Keppler, who pioneered the the office of met- ropolitan coordinator for Cedar area Catholic schools, will also return to parish min- istry.

Put Ihc gloves on yout hands and apply a generous amount of petroleum jelly to them. Work in well' as if yoi were washing your hands. Wipe off with a paper towel. By George W. Cornell AP Religion Writer At the initiation of Sen. Mark 0. Hatfield, a theologi- cally sharp Oregonian who is regarded a possible choice for the 1976 Republican presiden- tial nomination, many Ameri- cans have set aside a day lo "confess our national sins and to pray for clemency and for- giveness." They've scheduled observ- ances on Tuesday, of a Na- tional Day of Humiliation, Fasting and Prayer, as urged in a resolution introduced by Hatfield and adopted by the U.S. senate. Participation has been sup- ported by the U.S. Catholic bishops administrative board, by several Protestant and ecu- menical organizations and by many community groups. At least seven governors in Colorado, Arizona, Idaho, Lou- isiana, Georgia, Nebraska and Alabama have issued proc- lamations for the observance. Awakening It could "result in a great spiritual awakening through- out our says Bill Bright, president of Campus Crusade for Christ, in material sent to campus workers. "Prayers L can turn the tide and change our nation." Hatfield, 51, a biblically minded student of Abraham Lincoln and a critic of so- called "civil religion" that equates Americanism with God, says, "We must turn in repentance from the sin that has scarred our national soul." "Only p national confession of corporate guilt can save us from the worship of our own finite power and heal the wounds that presently afflict us." A Baptist and two-time gov- ernor of his home state before being elected to the U.S. sen- ate in 1966, Hatfield is among few federal 'lawmakers along with Sen. Harold Hughes, (D- Ipwa) disposed to discuss is- sues in such explicitly religi- ous terms. "Until you know 'a candi- date's philosophy of life, you don't know the he told a recent interviewer. Asked his philosophy, he said, ''1 define my philosophy in terms of the Lordship of Jesus Christ." Several influential church journals have cited Hatfield as a possibility for the 1976 pres- The Resolution Joint Resolution To proclaim April as a National Day For Humiliation, Fasting, and Prayer. Whereas it is the duty of nations, as well as of men, to owe their dependence upon the overruling power of God, to confess their sins and transgressions, in humble sorrow, yet with assured hope that genuine repentance will lead to mercy and pardon, and to recognize the sublime truth, an- nounced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history, that those nations are blessed whose God is the Lord; and Whereas we know that we have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of Heaven; we have been preserved these many years in peace and prosperity; we have grown in numbers, wealth, and power as no other nation has ever grown; but we have forgotten God; and Whereas we have forgotten the gracious hand which preserved us in peace and multiplied and enriched us; and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some su- perior wisdom and virtue of our own; and Whereas, intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeem- ing and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us; and Whereas we have made such an idol out of our pursuit of "national security" that we have forgotten that only God can be the ultimate guardian of our true livelihood and safety; and Whereas we have failed to respond, personally and col- lectively, with sacrifice and uncompromised commitment to the unmet needs of our fellow man, both at home and abroad; as a people, we have become so absorbed with the selfish pursuits of pleasure and profit that we have blinded ourselves to God's standard of justice and righteousness for this society; and Whereas it therefore behooves us to humble ourselves before Almighty God, to confess our national sins, and to pray for celemency and forgiveness; now, therefore, be it Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That the Congress hereby proclaims that April be a National Day of Humiliation, Fasting and Prayer; and calls upon the people of our Nation to humble ourselves as we see fit, before our Creator to acknowledge our final dependence upon Him and to repent of our national sins. Passed the Senate Dec. idential race. He ''might emerge as the Republican party's Mr. Clean, capable of (lie Aegean-stables trick of dig- ging out after writes editor James Wall, ed- itor of the ecumenical weekly, Christian Century. "If he does, and if he con- tinues his candor and convic- tion straight into the White House, the country might have found the man who can he moral without being mor- alistic, devout without being pietistic." Considered a liberal Repub- lican, llatfield's particular cri- teria prevent his being pegged in any specific camp on is- sues. For example, allied with conservatives, he has co-spon- sored an anti-abortion consti- tutional amendment, but with liberals, he was an early op- ponent of the Vietnam war and is a critic of U.S. reliance on military diplomacy. Civil Religion He says an "American civil religion" permeating the conn- try has "blinded us to the pos- sibilitv of sin" and sees American power as its "new god." His senate resolution, desig- nating Tuesday a day of re- pentance, says "we have for- gotten God Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-suffici- ent to feel the necessity of re- deeming and preserving grace... "We have made such an idol of our pursuit of 'national se- curity' that we have forgotten that only God can he the ulti- mate guardian of our true livelihood and safety As a people we have become so absorbed with the selfish pur- suits nf pleasure and profit that we have blinded our- selves to God's standard of justice and righteousness for this society." Church and civic groups in several cities, including Los Angeles, Dallas, Miami, Fla., Scranton, Pa., and Portland, Ore., have planned observan- ces Tuesday, such as closing businesses for varying peri- ods, keeping churches open and special worship services. Local Activities On the state and local level, Tuesday is being observfid as a Day of Humiliation, Fast- ing and Prayer in several ways. The Iowa house passed a resolution this week setting aside Tuesday as a day for humiliation, fasting and prayer. The chapel and sanctuary at St. Mark's Lutheran church will be open for prayer during the day and evening Tuesday in observance of the National Day of Prayer. The Free Methodist church will hold its midweek service Tuesday at p.m. instead of Wednesday in observance of the National Day of Prayer. The Christian Women's Club of Cedar Rapids will hold two prayer coffees Tuesday, one at the home of Mrs. James Zean, 1059 Thirty-fourth street NE, the other at the home of Mrs. Francis Johnson, 2408 Mallory street SW, both at a.m. Mrs. Robert L. Miller, pres- ident of Church Women Unit- ed, urged women of all faiths, Christian, Jewish and Mos- lems, to set aside Tuesday as a day of prayer and fasting for our nation. She urged that "women pray especially for Cedar Rapids and Marion that the flood of filth and lawlessness that has affected so many cities will be stemmed."
