MAN MORE BRAINY The brain of an average adult male weighs 3 pounds, 1.73 ounces while that of the average adult female weiglis 2 pounds, 12.83 ounces. Bv CO.XWAY DALY VTILCOX, Sask. (CP) The 79-year-o'.d priest rises in the morning ar.d looks around the small sparlanly furnished room tlsat is home. He prays, lights up the first of the day's chain of ciga- rettes, dresses and walks through an adjoining office cluttered with junk. Then he. arables on. through a large meeting room, steps outdoors ar.ii glances at a community that is in some a personal monument. But there's no complacency in the clear blue eyes o( Pcre Athol Murray. There's mostly concern for what mischief his boys are up to. Father Murray has been straightening out bally and often physically locator irmre than 40 years in this lit Me prairie town. In the process he's built Notre Dame College, a school of hard kr.ocks and Itigher learning, always long on faith and short on money. The college, affiliated since 1933 with the University of Ot- tawa, now has an enrolment of about 260 students. As in 1929, the year that the college was launched with a student body of six and gran- aries for dormitories, the magnet is Murray. -NO ANAKC11Y HEKE The stocky, white-haired figure, elevated eight years ago to the rank of monsigr.or of the Koman Catholic Church, still is called Fere. he's aroused, wliich is often, his cigarette ashes tend to scatter over his open- necked shirt ar.d his language takes a saltv turn. Yet he talks of God in Hie tone of familiarity that an- olher man would use to refer to a best friend or a helpful neighbor. Like his strange raggle-tag- colfege, located in this town 20 miles southeast of Re- gina, almost everything about him is a parados. "The grenlest thrill I have had is moulding, in complete freedom, Hie autonomy of the young human Father "Murray said in an interview. "But you have free- dom without authority. Ijb- erty without authority is an- archy. "The cry of the demonstra- tors these days is academic freedom, hut what it amounts to is opposition by young punks, protesters find separa- tists to the word he said. Many a wayward lad, sent b-r exasperaud parents to No'rc name for shaping up, has heard that lesson from (he no-rlor.sense priest. Bom in Toronto, he was dis- tracted from law studies when he found a rare copy of St. Augustine's Confessions in a bookstore bargain bin in 1914. HOOF FELL IN The book made a profound Impression and four years later ha was ordained a priest. He served in parishes in Ontario be-fore being sent west in the early 1920s. He was chancellor of Ke- gina diocese for four years, I tea became parish priest in Wlcox, a thriving fanning centre. Two years later, in 1929, the roof [ell in with (he advent of the Depression, and Father Murray founded a college to help the children of destitute farmers get an education. "It was very said a 193! graduate. "We went along on beans ar.d brov.-n bread and coffee quite a few clays. Of course it was all over. The food we hail was dependent on the farmers.rl One winter when finances were extraordinarily desper- ate, Father Murray oidered all Prot- estants ami Jews go into the cliapcl and pray. That Ditcir.con J. J. Steven- son of Ucgina. later a Sena- tor, visited Notre Dair.e and donated J1CO to the college. "It was really a said or.e of the three S5-a-year teachers then on staff.

Yet this dedicated sports en- thusiast is also the proud owner of a collection of rare books ranked tlic best in Can- ada. The college, built on an aca- demic groundwork laid by nuns who preceded Father Murray in Yiilcox, each year draws fiudcnts from all parts ol North America, Africa and Asia. It is emphatically non- denominational. In 19C1, Jews, Moslems and Christians joined in a cere- mony to dedicate the Tower of Gcd, a 55-foot stone irilrate in the language of three reli- gions.
