Search for truth, says new Newman president


MR. PHILIP DANIEL, newly-elected President of the Newman Association, has described the Newman as "an ideas market" and its members as "stewards for God's truth."

Speaking after his election last weekend at the annual meeting of the Association. Mr. Daniel urged that Newman members "can communicate only if they encounter, with respect and tenderness, all persons." But, he added, "the duty of searching together for truth must not be evaded: and the task is one of active pursuit. not passive acceptance".

Mr. Daniel is a graduate of the I.ondon School of Economics and Deputy Chairman of the South-East Economic Planning Board. He is Chairman of the Newman's International Committee, and serves on the Laity Commission.

Other officers elected include Fr. T. A. McGoldrick. chaplain to the Catholic students of Liverpool University, who becomes Senior Vice-President. Mr. J. Carroll and Mr. A. Mottram were elected VicePresidents. Mr. P. Worden Seccretary. and Mr. M. Vadon Treasurer.

Prof. J. Calderwood remains honorary president. and the reelected vice-presidents Archbishop Beck, Miss May Mercer and Prof. B. Whalley are joined by Dr. Paul Black and Fr. Herbert McCabe.

PRIESTS' MOTION A motion before the meeting asked Bishop Ellis of Nottingham to restore to their pastoral ministry four priests who have expressed concern on the encyclical on birth control. A statement issued on Monday said that, while largely sympathetic to the motion, the meeting felt a more personal approach was preferable, and it was therefore not put to the vote.

The new President was asked to write to Bishop Ellis and the secretary of the Episcopal Conference "expressing the concern felt by the Association at the unparalleled situation still existing in the diocese of Nottingham."
