The Cathedral of St. Augustine, Fla., is the home of America’s
irtdest Christian parish north of Mexico. The present Cathedral was
completed in 1797, enlarged and restored after fire of 1887. Parish
•ecords date back to 1594. Unlike other old buildings, the true age
•bd significance of St. Augustine’s imposing old Cathedral is not to
fee measured entirely in terms of the age and beauty of its stones,
Mortar and inward adornments. Actually one of the last Spanish
a ructures to rise into St. Augustine’s ancient skyline, the Cathedral
a ands as a crowning symbol of America’s early Christian zeal. In a
| ractical sense, the mightiest Spanish forts have crumbled into use-
Iffssness while the majestic Cathedral lives on as a monument to
Man’s eternal quest for salvation.

First Americans Last

The federal lawmakers show
great concern about the suffer
ing people of the world, but
seem hardly aware of the great
suffering in our own country.
The United States is one of
the great world powers because
we have been so bountifully
blessed with all natural re
sources. Our fertile soil is
nourished by rain and sun to
bring forth the most prolific
harvests on earth. Our rivers,
our forests, our minerals, the
energy and know-how of our
people have all contributed to
make this truly a land of plenty.
The government has felt it
necessary to limit the amount
and kind of planting done in
order to reduce our huge sur
pluses which exceed storage
facilities. The freedom allowed
Americans to choose our line of
work and to develop abilities
has made possible great prog
ress in all kinds of endeavor.
We give thanks for all this
bounty and are proud that our
nation wishes to share with the
less fortunate in neighboring
lands. The government has spon
sored plans by which food, med
icines, clothing, tools, and ed
ucational supplies are sent to
backward peoples.
Billions of dollars have been
given overseas to help alleviate
the suffering and to improve
living conditions and facilities.
Individuals are constantly hear
ing appeals for help by differ- *
ent organizations and agencies
to contribute to overseas aid.
This is good and all charitable
people should support such ap
peals when possible.
But right at our doorstep is
poverty and misfortune which
is almost unnoticed, Our Amer
ican Indians, especially those
in the southwest, are existing

in the most wretched condi
tions. They live on barren land
which cannot produce without
water. It is impossible to raise
crops. They exist in shelters of
the meanest kind which cannot
even be called shacks. Many
suffer from exposure and are
dependent on charity for any
kind of clothing. Schooling is
practically non-existent. They
are sick and their bodies show
the effects of constant malnu
trition and disease. Their only
help comes from begging. What
a pitiful plight for a once pros
perous and enlightened nation!
It is a miracle not only that
they have survived at all, but
that they are actually increas
ing in number.
Can more be done to bring
attention and help to these
poor people? Their plight has
been publicized and their dele
gates have visited officials in
Washington, but funds for the
Indians seem very limited. Per
haps much has been done that
do not not know of, but would
it be possible to re-channel
some of the billions now sent
overseas and share more of our
great surplus with our first
Americans? Paul told Timothy
that “if any provide not for his
own, and especially those of
his own house, he is worse than
an infidel.”
Would this also be the con
dition of a nation which is very
generous toward its neighbors,
but noot so mindful of its own
needy ones? The Indians need
help so badly. We pray that the
time is not far Off when our
officials will recognize more
fully the right of all Americans
to the pursuit of happiness and
will remember that charity be
gins at home.
Smart men live to sit and think.
Fat men live to eat and drink.
Lazy men live to nod and blink.
