The highest ranking prelate among the backers the Corrado Cardinal Archbishop of is close to Pope Paul VI. It was assumed here that neither the Cardinal nor the 30 bishops would have endorsed the proposed inquiry without ex- press authorization by the Pontiff. The investigation is to be carried out by a panel including Dr. Benjamin Spock and George the Nobel prize winning biologist. Both Americans have been promi- nent in the movement against the war in Vietnam. Other members of the group are Jean-Paul the French philosopher and and Lelio an Italian leftwing socialist and member of the Senate. The new set up in Brussels last calls itself the International Russell Two Tribunal. It is named after Bertrand the late British philosopher and mathe- matician. An earlier Russell formed in 1966 when Bertrand Russell was still Unitarian campaign goal set OTTAWA The cam- paign goal for the Unitarian Service Committee of Canada this year is in money and a USC announcement says. The 28-year-old organization supplies education to children ovrseas who need and to old people and the handicapped. Among several new projects this year is a rehabilitation program for the blind and han- dicapped that offers training and an opportunity for self in Vietnam. There is also an emergency refugee aid program in Vietnam. Family planning programs are being carried on in Hong India and Bot- swana. There is a pilot afforesta- tion program in Botswana. A milk distribution and literacy and craft training work are being done in Bangladesh. Longer-term programs sponsored by USC include 21 children's mid-day meals for children and adults in India and four Korean social service scholarships for students in the Middle Vietnam and Africa. The USC works in partnership overseas with local agencies and governments and uses in- digenous staff. It has recently told the Indian government it will be withdrawing from its 42 projects there by because local agencies are taking them over. CHRISTIAN SCttlCE 1203 4th AVE. S.

While editorials deplored the demolition of a Victorian mansion built by Sir William Van there were positive news stories about an east-end church being razed to provide a site for an old-folks home. Another church in the east end is being torn down except for its spire and possibly a chapel to make way for the new campus of the University of Quebec in Montreal. While there are objections to replacing the Van Horne house with an apartment building and citizen groups want to preserve the CPR's Windsor the destruc- tion of the churches has been seen as a logical adaptation of changing modern conditions. it hurts deeply every time a church is torn Father Claude 11 __ last resort and in the archdiocese of Montreal is against Father Turmel knows more about the city's churches than most people. He is in charge of sacred art for the archdiocese and several of the buildings in his care are part of the cultural and architec- tural heritage of Montreal and the entire country. Many of the old French- Canadian churches in the centre of the city face the serious threat of dis- for reasons similar to those causing the deterioration of city cores across the continent. A common factor is the dis- persal of middle-class families from centre-town to the suburbs. One SO years had five churches serving families. Today its population has been halved. A centre-town expressway was responsible for destroy- ing hundreds of family homes in the district. Radio- Canada's new headquarters building displaced about cial and office complexes have moved many more. Slum clearance schemes ripped down buildings to be replaced by others elsewhere. Parking lots have spread. Religious practises have changed too. Where 50 years ago every family attended church once a figures for the whole archdiocese have dropped to 50 to 60 per cent and in centre-town as few as five per cent of parishioners attend church regularly. Both destroyed churches mentioned above were affected by these trends and another which is also impor- tant. They built by craftsmen whose skills are no longer available and had become increasingly difficult and expensive to maintain. One of was carrying a debt. the archbishop agrees that a church be he does not do so Father Turmel said. just because a couple of churches have been torn down does not mean that 50 more should get the same concerned itself with alleged United States war crimes in Vietnam. The group was head- ed by Sartre. who is acting as provisional head of the new said at a news conference this week the group would hold preparatory sessions in Rome and Brussels next spring. Rights of the in- dividual and church state relations are to be discussed at the meeting. The panel plans to invite the Brazilian government to name a representative and submit evidence concerning charges of widespread abridgment of basic human rights under the present military regime. Basso said that his group would hear exiles and refugees from Chile and other Latin American countries. The names of Cardinal Ursi and the 30 Italian bishops who declared backing for the inter- national investigation were listed on a of the denouncing alleged torture and other repressive practices in Brazil. Many Roman Catholic lay leaders also were among the signers.
