Mountain View, Calif.--Public school children of St. Joseph's Parish here pose outside the 35-foot trailer-school in which they attend released-time religious instruction classes. The Rev. James B. Doyle of St. Joseph's, faced with a mushrooming congregation of San Francisco commuters, solved his scattered flock's educational problem by getting this 2 1/2 ton trailer for $2,800. The vehicle, which seats 55 pupils, pulls up to each public school before the youngsters are released. Father Doyle said that 900 public school children are under released-time instruction. St. Joseph's Parish is in the heart of a country area being rapidly developed with homes for persons working in San Francisco, 30 miles to the North.

Description:
Bejuco, Panama--Native children stand outside a small rural Catholic church under construction here in the interior of Panama. The structure is one of a number in a church building revival among Panamanian villages. The revival is said to be intended to counteract the increased activity of Protestant groups doing missionary work in rural areas. With improved transportation, Catholic priests and missionaries will visit these new churches more often to minister to the spiritual needs of the people. Small churches like this are springing up through rural Panama. There appears to be a revival of church building which may be explained as the action of the Roman Catholic Church, traditional church of the Panama people, against the increasing activity of some 12 different Protestant groups now doing missionary work within the Republic of Panama. Many times there have been villages in the interior of Panama where a priest came to say mass only the one day a year of the patron saint of the village. Now, with improved transportation, these smaller villages are receiving more visits from the clergy. This church under construction was at Bejuco, on the Pan-American Highway in interior Panama, and was being built by a neighborhood group to house their devotions.

Oakland, Calif.--A "Hot Rod" racing club here is believed to be the only organization of its kind in the country which combines auto racing with the practice of Christianity. Known as the Heaven Pacers of the East Bay, the club's 20 active members consider their racing fraternity as a missionary field. Members attend a brief non-denominational service before every race that is held on Sundays, in addition to praying individually during a race. Here. Don Marker, past president of the club, kneels in prayer before his "hot rod." The Heaven Pacers have as their motto this verse from I Corinthians: "Know ye not that they which run in the race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run that ye may obtain." (9:24) To join the club, applicants must "know the lord as your own personal saviour," and own or be able to build a "hot rod."
