Now the group has its second chart hit offthe new disc, "Love Will Keep Us Alive." The Eagles' rejuvenation brings back good mem- ories of the height of their recording success in the '70s and '80s. The question addressed in their latest release transcends time and music styles: How do we keep well -- and keep growing -- in our emotional lives? Most of us have experienced times when we felt "all alone against the world outside." Perhaps we were "searching for a place to hide" from painful feel- ings. That lost and lonely sense felt overwhelming as we faced each new day. For the person in the song, the answer for these types of hurts lies in his new relationship. He says, "Now I've found you, there is no more emptiness in- side." He has discovered that "love will keep us alive." Certainly, having a loving connection with an- other helps to heal feelings of emptiness. Yet, what can we do when no special romantic relationship is forthcoming? What if we feel alone as we go through periods of our lives? These difficult questions have no sure answers.

"Martha & Ethel" (Sony Classics) Warm-hearted documentary focuses on two nannies now in their 90s, one a German-born nurse with a strict Catholic up- bringing who raised producer- director Jyll Johnstone and her four siblings stressing confor- mity and discipline, the other a tolerant, affectionate black woman from the South who lovingly brought up co-pro- ducer Barbara Ettinger and her five siblings in collabora- tion with their divorced mother. Emerging from the highly personal recollections of each nanny, their grown charges and now-aged parents is an insightful look at ap- proaches to child rearing which also reflects how much the American family has changed since mid- century.

FCC, congressional proposals on broadcasting draws USCC comments WASHINGTON (CNS) -- New bills have been submitted in Congress requiring the so- called "V-chip" in televisions to block out violent hows, but that could be troublesome, said Miriam Crawford, U.S. Catholic Conference director of communications policy. The trouble comes in how to define violence and who would be responsible for defining it, Ms. Crawford said. "Coming up with a precise definition is what's really prob- lematic," she said. "The FCC (Federal Communications Commission) has had trouble defining what indecency is" and has had to go to court to defend its definition. The V-chip is a computer chip that would be installed in TV sets. It would permit par- ents to block out any shows that have a violence advisory encoded into the program. Sen. Byron Dorgan, D-N.D., introduced a bill just on the V- chip. Another bill was introduced by Sen. Kent Conrad, D-N.D., eind it has the support of the American Medical Association. It would require the FCC to set up a violence rating system, pro- hibit broadcasters and cable channels from showing violent programs between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m., and require the FCC to evaluate station compliance with" the Children's TV Act when evaluating broadcast license re- newal applications. Committees formed to study CTNA, design forum on translation WASHINGTON (CNS) -- Cardinal William H. Keeler of Baltimore has named two ad hoc bishops' committees, one to design a bishops' study forum on translation of liturgy texts and one to study the future of the Catholic Telecommunica- tions Network of America. The National Conference of Catholic Bishops, which Cardi- nal Keeler heads as president, established CTNA in 1981. The network had to lay off more than half its staff and cut its III" I air time last year to avert a major deficit. It got its final yearly subsidy from the bishops this January, and unless it gets new funding it is due to run out of money later this year. Bishop James W. Malone of Youngstown, Ohio, chairman of the CTNA board, said the network probably could not op- erate for an extended period of time with its reduced staff, which was cut in July 1994 from 18 to six.
