SALISBURY (Reuter) - Rho-

the realities and had come for-

in a Declining Church," pub-

The data was drawn from two

them in 1963, and 1,128 in 1974.
In the decade between those
years, two major forces were at

"It is rare," Father Greeley
commented, "for a social re-

a correlation completely, but
this turns out to be one of those
rare cases. Support for the
Vatican Council correlates posi-
tively with religious devotion,
and the decline in the birth con-
trol position and respect for pa-
pal authority accounts for the
whole deterioration."
