rts to
mmun-

ist countries and the increasing
contacts between the Roman
Catholic Church and other
churches.
He also rejects recent litur-
gical reforms, particularly the
saying of Mass in modern lan-
guages instead of Latin.
His supporters come mainly
from France, West Germany,
Italy and Switzerland where the
traditionalist movement against
the reforms of the 1962-65 Vati-
can Council has picked up mo-
mentum in recent months.
The seminary, the tradition-
alists' spiritual headquarters,
was not impressed by the
threat of excommunication con-
tained in a recent papal letter
to the archbishop.
"WE HAVE heard so many
suds threats before," a spokes-
person said while confirming
the ordination would be held as
scheduled.
Traditionalist sources claimed
to find a milder tone in the
Pope's address Monday at the
installation of five new cardi-
nals. Most of the address dealt
with church unity and Msgr.
Lefebvre.
The Pope's letter to the arch-
bishop warned of an "irrepar-

able rupture" betveen' the tra-
ditionalist Catholics and the
Church, they said, but no such
strongly worded reference was
contained in Monday's speech.
The sources expressed belief
Pope Paul will keep the door
open.
THEY ALSO cited reports
that West German Catholic
bishops were trying to mediate
between the Pope and his re-
belliots archbishop. Confirma-
tion of any such meditation at-
tempt was not available from
German Catholic sources yes-
terday.
Pope Paul stripped Archbis-
hop Lefeb're of his priestly
functions after he obtained a
group of rebel priests last June
29, and sent a letter warning of
p o s a i b I e excommunica-
tion should he proceed with the
ordinations announced for to-
day.
Last Snday at Flavigny sur
Ozerain, in eastern France, the
archbishop ordained another
priest.
The men ordained by the
archbishop in defiance of papal
instructions are forbidden by
the church to serve as clergy-
men.

JOHANNESBURG, South Af-
rica (AP) - Security police an-
nounced yesterday that three
more black urban guerrillas, de-
scribed as having been trained
in Marxist Angola and carry-
ing Communist - made arms,
have been captured inside South
Africa.
The men were arrested in the
segregated black townships out-
side the capital of Pretoria,
where police said they also
seized caches of automatic fire-
arms of Communist origin.
THE ARRESTS brought to
eight the number of guerrillas
announced captured since three
black terrorists shot and killed
two whites in downtown Johan-
nesbsrg on June 13 in broad
daylight.
Security police were reported
still combing the country late
yesterday for at least two other
members of a group of urban
guerrillas said to have slipped
into the country earlier this
month.
The shootings in-Johannesburg,
the discovery of arms caches,
and railroad sabotage and
bombings raised the white pop-
ulation's concern over a grow-
ing menace of urban terrorism
in this racially divided nation
of 18 million blacks ruled by 4.5
million whites.
Brig. P. J. Coetzee, deputy
chief of the security police, said
the arms seized yesterday in-
cluded "Communist-made Scor-
pion machine pistols," the same
used during the attack on the
Johannesburg whites two blocks
from the central police station
at John Vorster Square.
One of the two gunmen arrest-
ed in Johannesburg after the
slaying in an auto maintenance
depot was overheard to yell in
Afrikaans "I'll talk," and he ap-
parently has.
Police said three other blacks
were captured Monday in a car
loaded with explosives, arms
and ammunition which overturn-
ed during a high speed chase.

No other details were given.
Police said last week that
those captured are believed to
be part of a group of about 10
black youths, some from Mame-
lodi township outside Pretoria,
who fled South Africa during
nationwide rioting last year.
Police sources said they were
apparently trained in a suburb
outside the Angolan capital of
Luanda and crossed into South
Africa from Mozambique. They
are believed to be members
of the exiled African National

Council, which is banned in
South Africa.
The council's nominal leader,
Nelson Mandela, is serving 'a
life term on Robben Island max-
imum security prison off the
coast of Cape Town. He was
convicted on charges of subver-
sion in 1964.
Newspapers q u o t e d police
sources as saying the group was
planning to incite a major con-
frontation with police in the
black township of Soweto out-
side Johannesburg.
