A spokesman for the cardinal said no disciplin- ary action was taken. The card- inal has not commented on the incident. Catholics, many of them Ne- gro, from other parts of the Los Angeles area attended the porters of the priest circulated at them read: "The! REV. DuBAY Mass. Meanwhile, a dozen sup- Time Is Now."
