Pope To Open New Doors?

By EUGENE LEVIN
Associated Press Staff Writer
VATICAN CITY-This week
Pope Paul VI' entered the third
year of his reign. Many at the
Vatican think he will set a vig-
orous course for his pontificate
during the year, possibly embark-
ing on broad new policies.
Since the Roman Catholic car-
dinals elected Giovanni Battista
Montini as their Church's 262nd
Pope on June 21, 1963, he has
been largely occupied with the
completion of projects ini ated
by his predecessor, John XXIII.
The major unfinished business,
the Vatican Ecumenical Council,
is expected to be cpmpleted by
Christmas. The council's fourth
and final session starts Sept. 14.
No Secret
It is no secret at the Vatican
that the continuing council has
been a restraint on Pope Paul.
Informants say he has hesitated
to act in many fields to avoid
giving the impression of trying to
influence the. council.
But there is no doubt he has put
his own stamp on Roman Catholic
policy, still in the ferment of the
renewal - or aggiornamento -
launched by Pope John.
Pope Paul has widened the
Christian unity contacts started
by John. In February, Paul gave
a new dimension of international-
ity to the College of Cardinals,
giving it more than 100 members
for the first time in history.
Traveler
Travel has become an integral
part of Pope Paul's policy, taking
him outside Rome to other Italian
cities and to the holy land and
far-off India Prelates say he is
not traveling= simply because he
likes it, but because he feels it
is his duty to show that he is not
just an Italian Pope, but the
spiritual leader of all the world's
half billion Roman Catholics.

era" In Lydia Mendelssohn Thea-
tre.,

Many at the Vatican say he
would travel even more if it were
not for the Council. He had
wanted to go to the Philippines
in April, but he turned down theI
invitation largely because of his
work in preparating for the Coun-
cil's final session
One of his first acts was to
call for a reform of the Vatican
curia, the centuries-old central'
church administration. But the
reform has never been carried out,
and the word has gone out that
he is waiting for the Council to
end.
Unfinished
Unfinished documents before
the council deal with the priest-
hood and the duties of bishops.'
Clearly the Pope is withholding
action on the Curia reform in line
with his expressed desire to give'
the bishops the greatest measure
of freedom of choice.

council ends. So far he has been
tied down to finishing another's
pontificate. Once the council is
over, he will be another man-a
free man."
Changes
What changes are likely in his
activities?
There probably will be more
travel, perhaps two or three major
trips a year.
His contacts with non-Catholics
are likely to increase. Pope John's
Secretariat of Christian Unity
and Paul's two new secretariats,
one for non-Christian religions
and the other for atheists, may
assume new importance and prom-
inence.
Diplomatic Activity
There may be greater diplo-
matic activity. Pope Paul already
has offered to mediate in world
disputes. He has acted, in one
way or another, in the crisis in
Viet Nam, Cyprus and Santo Do-
mingo. Such diplomatic activity,
with the Roman Catholic Church
appearing more open and inter-
national, could result in a major
development in U.S.-Vatican re-
lations.
Envoy
Some say Washington might
eventually assign a special envoy,
or Presidential representative, to
the Vatican. Reportedly some con-
tacts already have been made, pos-
sibly at Henry Cabot Lodge's top
secret meeting with the Pope in
May, when Lodge was on his way
back to Washington from a ,Viet
Nam mission for President John-
son.
But the renewal is not without
opposition, and even without the
Vatican Council Pope Paul might
be forced to go slow.
In many countries Roman
Catholic groups have been hesi-
tant in accepting such reforms as
modern language in the mass.
They say Latin was more suitable
for the liturgy and complain that
some changes have been made
simply for the sake of reform.
Concern
Other Catholic groups have ex-
pressed concern that the renewal
is compromising the Church's
battle against Communism.
In this climate, the year ahead
may well be the most crucial of
Pope Paul's reign. He may find
himself alone in crossfire between
the Church's progressives and
conservatives, with no council to
draw their fire.

Not 'Cocky,'
GOP National
Chief Claims
Hopes for Comebacka
But No Bounceback
WASHINGTON (P)-Far from
cocky about their chances for a
1966 comeback, Republicans ap-
proved yesterday a long-range
plan to win back the big city,
Negro and young people's vote they
lost in 1964.
Qhairnan Ray C. Bliss told a
news conference after the closing
session of a two-day meeting of
the GOP National Committee that
he rejects the idea that there
will be an "automatic bounce-
back" from the disastrous defeat
the party suffered last year.
He said members of the party's
governing body are "not cocky"
about Republican prospects in
congressional and state elections
next year.
"I don't think there will be any
automatic bounce-back from 1964,"
he said, "but if we get good can-
didates and campaign vigorously
for congress, state. and county of-
fices we can make some gains."
In a closed session often punc-
tuated by applause, the national
committee;:
-Approved Bliss' pla~n aimed at
reversing the Democratic trend in
cities and suburbs where the
chairman said 56 per cent of the
nation's voters now reside. Bliss
pledged, among other things, that
he would "enlarge and broaden
existing programs to build sup-
port among Negro voters."
-Heard that its research de-
partment is compiling a "complete
dossier" on the doings and sayings
of President Lyndon B Johnson
to confront him with in 1968but
is not neglecting to log other po-
tential candidates. Listed in this
category were Vice-President Hu-
bert H. Humphrey and Sens. Rob-
ert F. Kennedy (D-NY) and Ed-
ward M. Kennedy (D-Mass).
-Approved the appointment of.
a committee to recommend meas-
ures for "reforming and moderniz-
ing" its presidential nominating
conventions which Bliss said have
been dull and former President
Dwight D. Eisenhower described
as so chaotic they "horrified"
television viewers.
-Gave rousing approval of a
resolution praising the Senate-
House leadership for, among other
things, having "warned that the
present administration was now
moving toward a negotiated settle-
ment in Viet Nam . . . and that
such settlements are equivalent to
surrender to the Communists."
After the national committee
had adjourned Bliss met with
state chairmen to resolve a con-
troversy over filling his old job
as chairman of the state chair-
men's organization.

Pick Negro
As Head
Of Baptists
MIAMI BEACH, Fla (P)-The
25-million member World Baptist
Alliance, an organization packed
with Americans, chose a Liberian
Negro as its new president yester-
day.
Some 20,000 convention dele-
gates roared their aproval as the
Rev. Dr. William R. Tolbert Jr ,
52, Liberia's vice-president, was
swept into office by acclamation.
Dr. Tolbert becomes the first
Negro to head the 121-nation al-
liance, and church leaders hailed
his election as "a breakthrough
... something revolutionary." The
alliance has no jurisdiction over
church affairs.
Most Americans
All but about three million of
the organization's members live
in the United States, and about
three-quarters of the convention
delegates were Americans.
"I speak here as a foreigner,"
the Rev. Joao Soren of Rio De
Janeiro, Brazil, retiring alliance
president, told the delegates. "You
could have voted for anyone you
wanted and you elected this man
for the Christian and the Baptist
that he is.
"Your (racial' problems here (in
the United States) have been
played up out of proportion else-
where in the world, but you would
not be pressured into bigotry.
Breakthrough
"This is a breakthrough
sometning revolutionary."
The Rev. Dr. Porter Ruth, exe-
cutive director of the Southern
Baptist Convention, also hailed
the election as "tangible evidence
of what we have long said-that
people should be judged solely by
their individual merits."
Dr. Tolbert was outwardly un-
moved by the significance of his
election.
"I haven't given it much
thought," he said. "You see, we
are not really racially conscious
in Liberia . . . I will work very
hard to do the best job possible."
Tolbert, for 14 years the No. 2
man in his country's government,
has served as Vice-President of
the church alliance for the past
five years.
The racial question has been a
prime topic at the Alliance's 11th
World Baptist Congress which
ends today. The congress number-)
ed among its delegates-but not
its speakers-the Rev. Dr. Martin
Luther King.
Dr. King's absence from the
speaker's rostrum earlier had been
termed an indictment of the alli-
ance by the Rev. William A. Law-
son, a Houston pastor.

-Assocated Pre
A COMMITTEE REPORTING to the Alabama legislature claimed that .civil rights movements whit
sponsored demonstrations such as the march on Montgomery pictured above were Communist in
filitrated. Civil rights leaders denied the charges yesterday.
Claims Rights Move Communn

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (P) - A
special legislative committee
charged yesterday that two civil
rights organizations are Com-
munist-inspired and that Dr. Mar-
tin Luther King is "actively en-
gaged in promoting the Commun-
ist line "
King and another spokesman,
reached for comment, called the
accusations "witchhunting and
typical Southern reaction."
The five-member Commission to
Preserve the Peace made the al-
legations in a 39-page report to
the Alabama legislature-the body
which created it two years ago
after Birmingham's bloody racial
demonstrations.
Accusations
King, his Southern Christian
Leadership Conference (SCLC).
the Congress Of Racial Equality
(CORE), and the Student Non-
violent Coordinating Committee
(SNCC), were _accmsed of pro-
moting the Communistdcause and
being a threat to state and na-
tional sovereignty.
SNCC, the commission charged,
is the most dangerous and is in-
volved in a tug-of-war with King
for control of the civil rights
movement.
"Currently the trend seems to
be that King is in control of the
older groups who have the money,
but SNCC is getting the campus
support and trying to force King
to either get out or to lean fur-

ther to the left," the report said.
SNCC
It charged that SNCC is "ex-
tensively Communist dominated"
and ultimately "must be ;smashed
by legal action or we will court
a major disaster."
SNCC, the commission charged,
is "an extremely dangerous,, ir-
responsible group which tends to
promote acts of violence" to gain
support for its aown goals.
The -commission cited paid
SNCC performers as stating .the
organization "wanted violence-
preferably to get :some of its
demonstrators killed. in Alabama,"
Sources
The commission, headed by Rep.
John Hawk'ins, said it obtained
its information from staff mem-
bers, part-time investigators, vol-
untary witnesses and police.
Alabama's legislature establish-
ed the commission, to investigate
individuals and groups "who may
be engaged in activities "of an un-
lawful nature against the sover-
eignty of the state . ."
King said the charges are "an-
other attempt to evade the fact
that democracy does not exist in
Alabama If these men were as
concerned with the fulfillment of
the U.S. constitution as they are
with witchhunting and name call-
ing, we would not even need a
civil rights movement."

The chairman of SNCC, John,

POPE PAUL VI

Birth control, and the possible
approval of contraceptive pills, is
another field in which the Pope
may be waiting for the council to
end. A secret commission is study-
ing the matter for him. A council
schema on modern world problems
also takes up birth control in a
general way.
Some prelates feel he would
have acted more vigorously and
more rapidly in all these fields
had there been no council. In
Vatican corridors there is an often
repeated comment along these
lines:
"Watch the Pope when the
