Nun-Biochemist Chosen Recipient Of Dutton Leprosy Award NEW BRUNSWICK (NC) ­ Sister Hilary Rose, of the Daugh­ ters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul, has been chosen the reci­ pient of the 1958 Damien Dutton Award it was announced here. . Sister Hilary is a biochemist at the United States Leprosa­ 'rium, Carville, La., and has, lerved ·there since 1922. She is now in charge of the clinical laboratory. She holds a bache­ lor of science degree from Louis­ Iana State University. The selection was made at a .meeting of the board of gover­ nors of the Damien Dutton So­ ciety at its headquarters here. The society, under Catholic aus­ pices, provides research, relief and recreation for Hansen's di­ lease patients throughout the world, regardless of race, color 01' c~eed. Funds are distributed through the national office of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith, of which Auxiliary Bishop Fulton J. Sheen of New York is national director. Contributing Editor Sister Hilary is a member of

the International Leprosy Asso­ ciation and a contributing editor to the International Journal of Leprosy. She has studied the biochemical problems of Han­ sen's disease and has been recog­ nized throughout the world for her scientific findings. Sister Hilary also excels in clinical photography and won the silver medal for photographs e~hibited during the 1947 meet­ ing of the American Medical Association at Atlantic City, N. J., in a' competition involving more than 1,200 photographs. She is the author' or co-author of more than 35 articles pub­ lished in scientific journals on the clinical aspects of Hansen's disease. The award will be presented to Sister Hilary at a luncheon April 26 in the Roger Smith Hotel here. . Sister Hilary, who attended the 1948 world congress on leprosy in Cuba and the 1953 congress in Madrid, will be a delegate to the 1958 meeting in November at New Delhi, India.

Rules Girl May Stay in Convent Despite Parental Objections HILLSBORO (NC) - Circuit 3udge G len Hieber ruled here .... t Alice .Miller, 19, may re­ .ain a postulant at the Beaver­ ton, Ore., convent of the Sisters fill St. Mary of Oregon, despite the objections of her non-Cath­ eUc parents. 3udge Hieber held that the Portland girl entered the con­ '~nt freely, and is free to leave at any time. Ivan R. Miller, the girl's father, bad brought a writ of habeas corpus action against the Sisters f • St. Mary and Mother Colette, the Mother Superior of the community. He charged that Alice had entered the convent because of undue influence and coercion, and was being restrained from leaving. Mrs. Miller reportedly supports her husband's position. But Judge Hieber ruled that there was no evidence of undue influence, coercion of restraint. In his nine-page decision the Circuit Judge said the girl, a convert, joined the Catholic Church as a result of her own desire arid the teaching she had received. Alice and her sister Lois, also a convert, were edu­ .ted in Catholic schools. Emancipated o 3udge Hieber found Alice to be a 'stable, intelligent, mature" ,.irl. He ruled she had been emancipated from parental con­ trol when her father gave her a ehoice between staying home or .iving up her Catholic _faith. As a general rule, the judge Aid, the law gives parents cus­ tody of a child until the age of 11, ' "The law, however, provides exceptions to the rule." the opin­ ion added, "one of which is emancipation from legal custody under certain conditions and clrcumsta nces. Emancipation leaves the child, so far as the parent is concern~d, free to act on its own responsibility . . • .. though it had attained ma­ jority." Judge Hieber explained that Ilenerally the parent has the

right to control the religion of the child. Dictates of ConseienGe '''But this court knows no law under' the circumstances of this case, and the inconsistency prac­ ticed by these parents, which permits parents to require a child growing into mature years to give up its Faith as a pre­ requisite to remaining in the household, and as a result caus­ ing the child to leave and forage tOr itself," he stated. "The court has concluded that plaintiff's acts and conduct, as disclosed by the evidence in issuing repeated ultimatums to his daughter to renounce her Faith and leave home, or state­ ments of the like import, were tantamount to forcing her to go, elsewhere to live." Because Alice Miller acted on such ultim'atums, she is eman­ cipated from parental control, the judge held, adding: "It necessarily follows that Alice Miller may pursue her c:ourse in life consonant with her own conscience and dictates."

C'osiers to Serve Dutch New Guinea FORT WAYNE (NC) - The American Crosier Fathers have accepted their first foreign mis­ sion .in the jungle country of Dutch new Guinea - 1m. area that has become famous for its Stone Age culture and for a structure of society based on head-hunting. Father Benno Mischke, Amer­ ican Crosier Provincial, has re­ turned from an inspection trip of the new mission field.

Separation Defeats Protestant Purpose WASHINGTON (NC) - A Protestant educator charged here that over-emphasis on separation of Church and state "tends to defeat the deeper interests of Protestants in combatting the secularization 'of American cul­ ture." Dr. E: Clinton Gardner,. pro­ fessor of ethics at Emory Uni­ versity, Atlanta, Ga., also told a conference 'of the Methodist Board of Temperance that "the founding fathers did not seek to separate the Church, from religion. "Indeed," he said', "they be­ lieved that the vitality of our democratic go;vernment and the welfare of the, country depended to a large 'extent upon the strength and support which were made available through religi­ ous faith." Dr. Gardner point.ed out that "a great. deal of our discussion of the issue of church and state, is focused on the threat which Protestants see in Roman Cath­ olicism." "When attention is centered exclusively on the separation of church and state," he said, "the impression 'is often left that the predominant relation of the church and religion to the",~tate and the political life is one of separation; and in the long run this negative, approach tends to defeat the deeper int~rests of Protestants in combatting the secularization of American CUl­ ture and in achieving justice at home and peace abroad."

CHICAGO (NC)-His Emin­ ence Skmuel Cardinal Stritch said here that he will leave Chicag~ on April 15 for Rome to take 'up his new post as Pro­ prefect of the Sacred Congrega­ tion for the Propagation of the Faith. The Archbishop of Chicago ,the first U. S. born prelate to be named to the Roman Curia, said he expects to arrive in Naples on April 25, from where he will go to Rome by automo­ bile. Cardinal Stritch said at a press eonference that any provisions in regard to the Chicago arch­ diocese are up to His Holiness Pope Pius XII. He said that "in the Church there are decisions which only the. Holy Father can make," and added "I would be indeed rash and imprudent if I were to hazard a guess' on such decissions. We must leave them Ul the Holy Father."

'Paulist Centenary,

- .,


This fs the year of the Paulist Fathers cente~ary~ One hundred years ago, Father Isaac Thomas H~cker founded the Missi0.rary Society of St. Paul the Apostle as a distinctive American congregation. -' The Paulists have become experts in the work of mak­ ing converts and in the apostolate to students at non­ Catholic colleges. Their magazines-The Cathoiic World, and -Information-are excellent publications. From the -very beginning _the Paulists have striven fo make Catholicism at home in America. -They know that -the old myth still lingers on in the minds of many non­ Catholics that, somehow, the Catholic Church is' an alien organization. This piece of fiction was fed by the fact that many of the immigrants coming to this country during the last century were proud possessors of the -Catholi~ Faith. And so the Paulists -were founded in Ameri~a as an American 'congregation with a program of Catholic action that was modern and characteristically American. The whole truth of Jesus Christ would be insisted upon and taught. Loyalty to the Holy See and to the cathQlicity of the Church could not be _discard~d or compromised. But there would be a presentation of the Catholic Faith with an understanding of American psychology. There would be the insistence that there is no conflict between being a Catholic and being an American. The Faith would be pre­ sented as indeed it is-independent of any national ties or foreign political allegiances. The very catholicity of the Church-reaching out to aU men of ,all classes of every race and national background--'guarantees that it does have a place in America. This is the approach of the Paulists. Their kindness in dealing with non-Catholics-avoid­ Hollywood in Focus ing the bit~F--p'6femic that all too often wins the argument and loses the person-"-has won them respect and souls. Their positive ,presentation of ,the Faith makes)t easier' l for prejudices to be overcome that the grace of God may find better cooperation. Their approach as Americans By William H. Mooring makes their message looked on, with less suspicion. And "The Nun's Story" has moved from the Belgian Congo. thus they use their Americanism to help the cause of Christ and to help write a glorious page of American action After five weeks of tough filming director Fred Zinnemann, with his cast, Audrey Hepburn, Peter Finch, Dame Edith into the book of Catholicism. j Evans, Dame Peggy Ashcroft and a full working crew have gone to Rome where other ' , the more difficult situations. sequences, were to, begin Director Zinnemann is con­ The First Sunday in Passion.

A:1'I<1 . he's still getting the' saine' respect 'as he got from· sluggers. twenty years ago. ,; In the thirties, George' "Fire- . baW'.

Today, ·"Fireball" is on the march again spreading terror in enemy camps. But this time he's not on the mound facing slug­ gers, or fighting the battles of the Pacific: he is fighting the white ants of Tanganyika. Brother Leonard is now in Africa devoting his time, talents and energy to building missions, chapels, and churches. Right now he is constructing the new mission of Christ the King at Malili, south of the famed Serengcti Plains, and at the same time he is putting up the beautiful new church of Our Lady of Good Help at Nassa, overlooking Lake Victoria. And at both places the white ants are about ready to admit they've met a formidable opponent. The white ants here have a reputation as the quickest and mQst thorough devastators in Africa. Put up a chapel or school with wooden beams and thatch roof and the ants will come along and make a meal of it; leveling the building in minutes. . That's why Brother Leonard is building his missions and sChools with solld cement block, concrete floors, and with metal doors and window frames. The ole "Fireball" is on the warpath again and the white ants, quick to recognize a "pro" when they see ,one, are l'(Ioving back into the bush league.

He urged a program of prayer and good example among all the a neccessary adjunct to the w9rk of priests and trained lay apostles laboring among Negroes; "Racial discrimination and hatred is a sinful sundering of the Mystical Body of Christ," he said. "Christ lived and taught and di~d for the unity of the human race.

You'll choose yours in a tweedy mlture of jwit about any color of the rainbow . . or In a solid color from a Spring garden of colors and shadings. (Prices, by the way, are abso­ lutely thrifty!) Skirts Are UP Naturally I'm not suggesting that lots of money doesn't make' a pleasant shopping companion! What I do say, have been saying tor years, is: a woman can look beautifully, suitably dressed for practically anything per annum! It's the woman (or girl) who does who's a "fashion success!" This Spring, she will choose lIOtne fonn of chemiserie in suit,

(consequently!) good taste! She will invoke the flattery of color . , perhaps the most bravura color she's ever worn .. for bal­ ance and becomingness .. and at least, two. strands of chemise­ beads, thirty in'ches or so long!

Sweeping Country The fabric story is an ever­ changing, ever-fascinating "re­ view of the' times!" Many pe,ople won't admit it" but time and tastes 'change! Today, only very elderly grandmothers and mu­ seum curators appreciate or even remember the fascinating old fabric designs! . Not too long ago "Old Fashioned" fabric de- • signs became "Provincial!" Many of these wonderful old-fashioned fabric designs have:been -"dusted off", '.,. re-scaled . . ,have been added to new, beautifully wash';' able, .always bright colors and set on screen-printed poplin and' polished cotton! These "Pro­ vincial" design fabrics are charming, ~ye-appealing, newly wonderful.

LOUISVILLE (NC) - Male freshmen watched television an average of 25.75 hours a week, and female f.eshmen watched it an avetage of 15.75 hours a week, ac¢ording to a survey made at, four ,Catholic high schools hE1re. The sur;vey was conducted by The R~cotd, weekly newspaper of the Louisville archdiocese. Interviewed were students of two boys'· schools and two girls' . schools. 'The prjneipal of one of the boys' schools felt the survey warranted the following conclu­ sions: The"lower the intelligence rating,the, higher th~ pum~er of viewing' J'lOurs p~rweek;, st~':, dents with the highest IWmoer of v~ewing hours, regardless of intelligen¢e rating, also have the lowest av~rage marks.

"They're handing us a responsibility-the school was not ihtended to take, and ilJ not equipped to take," he stated.

Good Goyernment Day Observed

Spotlighting Our Schools ST. MARY'S 10GB, TAUNTON All the yearbook copy bas been sent and t~e deadlines met. The Corona will be published in May. I Collections are being made each day for the benefit of the Bishop's Relief 'Fund. The drive has been inten'sified by the si­ multaneous collections being made in the diocesan parishes. The Good Government Day Assembly was held OIl last Thursday in the auditorium. The student body favored the pass­ age of an act authorizing school districts to establish' and main­ tain local courses of instruction on junior college level, an act relative to compulsory automo­ bile insurance rates throughout the commonwealth, an act pro­ Yiding that the Department ol Education establish a program , to encourage participation in the engineering and sCien~es field, and providing scholarships therefor, and an act providing a penalty for failure to vote at state elections. It opposed the passage of an act abolishing capital punish­ ment in some cases, and an act to require biennial tests for license to operate a motor ve-, hide and to increase the age therefor to eighteen. The Sodality's apostolic work for the week was the distribu­ tion of the Lenten Psalm, sug­ gested by St. John's Abbey. Sandra Lavoi distributed these to all the students. Each week the Sodality is em­ phasizing a Lenten practice in the home. Thus far, fasting, prayer, and almsgiving by the family have been 'stressed.

GENEYA (NC) - With finan­ cial aid from the United States Escapee' Program, Catholic Re­ lief Ser,vices-National Catholic, Welfare, Conference has been' able to, assist about 83,488 es,capees from Red-dominated 'countries sin'ce the creation of USEP itt 1952. This fact was contained in a letter o~ congratulation sent to Richard R. 'Brown, Overseas Directot of USEP, by James J. Norris, .European director of CRS-NCWC. Since' the creation ~f USEP six years ago, Mr. Norris wrote, the Congress of the United States 'has been appropriating money for the escapee program. These funds have been judici­ ously administered, he added, in providing the kind of relief most necessary to' refugees from com- ' munism and in helping non­ governmental 'agencfes ,arrange overseas 'resettlement of the refugees.

Outllning the grants which

CRS-NCWC has received from USEP I since 1952, Mr. Norris said that CRS-NCWC's various' .field offices had:

-Helped to resettle 25,461

escapees who had fled from com­

munism; -Helped to integrate int6 host countries 632 escapees who had previously fIe d communist- ' dominated countries; ,-Provided care and. mainte­ nance to 57,395 escapees who had' recently fie d Red-dominated countliies.

Continued from Pa/re One synlpathizers are ,fanning what­ soever claims there are. Reacting to the' leftists anti­ religious campaign, the central council' of the Catholic Action Graduates sent a mesage of devo­ tion to His Holiness Pope Pius XII. The Pope, through a letter written on his behalf by Msgr. Angelo Dell'Acqua, Vat i can Substitute Secretary of State, thanked the group for its senti':' ment. Respect 'Truth .' The note said the campaign went beyond ordinary politics and was aimed at confusing the conscience of Christians. It called on the press to respect and report truth. Radio Vatican reported that furth~r evidence of the violence of the communists' anti-religious campaign is to be found in their comments on .various Catholic activities in non-political areas. The leftist press has attacked • ceremony at Reggio Emilia commemorating Italian priests who died in the war as "provoc­ ative" and has called the tradi­ tional march of Ca'tholic univer­ sit,. students from Bolsena to Orvieto in April an Hantilay manifestation." Another Catholic activity' under communist attack is a meeting of the youth section of Italian Catholic Action which fa to be beld March 19. Pre-Eleetlon Plan Non-communist newspapers in Rome see the ·anti-Church cam­ paign as part of the left's pre­ election strategy of trying to re­ gain some of the membership lost "­ to the party when the Soviet troops marched into Hungary in 1956 to put down the uprising. The Italian elections are ljched­ uled 30metime between now and June when the members of the Chamber of Deputies, the Italian equivalent"of the House of Rep­ resentatives, auiomatically go out of office.

. Catholic America (or at least that portio!). of it which is given to self-analysis) has recently indulged .in 'somewhat of an orgy of agonized r~apIiraisal.The results are heavily weighted with discouragement. We are lacking, it seems, association between the Holy m. 'intellectual and -moral See and the Church in the leadership. We have failed United States. The necessities of the tiines to produce a culture which

Saints; In Crosswords "'-

By Most Rev. Robert J. Dwyer, D.D.

Is anything more than a pallid reflection of what has been i:l<me better elsewhere. We are con­ tent to teach on the grade-school level while the universities are bardly eyen aware of the exist­ ence of Catholicism as a living force. Now examination of con­ lIeience is an. essential of spir­ itual progress. That the Church In America should be acutely aware of her own shortcomings is the best possible augury for their eventual correction. There Is far greater danger in an atti­ lode 'of smug self-satisfaction titan there is in the exaggera­ - ,lion of fault. ' The saint who denounces him­ .elf as a reprobate gives im-' measurably greatel~ joy to the angels than the sinner who re­ counts his benefactions to 30­ eiety. All the same, the angels probably know how to discount "e familiar rhetoric of sanctity. ftey are 'content that the saint lIIaGuld be humble. Tempest in Teapot The Catholic Church in Amer­ Iea,however manifold her faults,· ba. retained a characteristic 1IKmility. It does not occur to her that she should set a pattern fDr the Church Universal. Even today, in the era of American hegemony in the West, the Church in these United States is far from aspiring to a .eo-ordinate 'spiritual leadership which would be a modern reflec­ lion of' the Gallicanism of the Age of Louis XIV. For Gallic­ anism, as it simmers down in history, was far less of a dog­ matic heresy than a, by-product of French pride. . Father Thomas 'r. McAvoy, esc, of·Notre Dame, has written the defi'nitive study 'of 'the "Americanism" which was (at least implicitly) condemned by' Leo XIII in his Testem Benevo­ lentiae, back in the early '96s. Though he calls his study The 'Great Crisis in American CaUwl­ k-ism, Father· McAvoypioves 'ather conclusively that it was 'DO real crisis at all, and that the tempest raged almost exclusively .In- the teapot of a. few foreign malcontents. The Church in America WBII' btissfully unaware of her . "Americanism," as a theory of the priority of the "active" over t~ "passive" virtues, and found­ it difficult to believe that ,what the Pontiff was writing about had any reference to the reali­ ties of her situation. Church Is Emerging Yet it is inevitable that the American Church should be stib·-. jected to the close and critical scrutiny of the Church Univer­ sal. What until recently might have passed for a private or even a peculiar interest on the part of an Italian or a Spanish Catholic bas become a major absorption Gf great numbers of those who are concerned with· the develop­ ment and welfare of the Church IR the uncertainties of the fu­ ture. . That a body of such size, va­ rJety, wealth, and accomplish­ 'ment should fail to pull its full weight in the determination of ;those practical policies· which are inextricably boUnd up with the mission of the Church is in­ conceivable.. Somewhat lagging behind ·the . American nation, the Ca tholic' Church in America 18 emerging on the international lIeene. The appointment of His Emi­ ttence, Samuel Cardinal Stritch, to a position of major responsi­ bility ,in the Roman Curia is plainly indicative of 'this emer­ gence. It is not only recognition 0( • great churc1Unan's personal qualifications, but of the need· , k • ao.. ;wl' .~a :iIl&imMe

Protestants Ask rougher Laws On Obscenity WASHINGTON (NC)-An or­ ftanization, of Protestant minis­ ters and laymen has urged par­ ents to protest to Co!!gress if their children receive advertising' tor obscene material through the . mails. · The Churchmen's Commission ,tor Decent Publications declared that this "would· show the mem­ bers of Congress the need for stricter laws and better law enforcement." A bill introduced by. Rep. Emanuel Celler of new York is now before Congress which would permit persons who send obscene material through the mails, to be prosecuted, in the· place wher' it is ·received. At present they can be prosecuted only where it is placed in the mail. \ · .Most obscene material is said t8 be mailed from Los 'Angell~s and New York. It has, been, pointed out ·thatpornography· dealers are seldom convicted in those two' cities. · The' Commission for Decent Publications charged that 50,000 direct mail circulars advertising ebscene material are mailed an­ nually., The Post Office Depart­ ment has revealed that many of these are sent to children l!nd ,teen-agel's. The commisSion Said it is sup­ . porting legislation :for tighter ~Btrictions on mail distribution ." pornography. It' told parents 'that the most effeetfve protest would be "a direct ·appeal 'to your ;;e~ator or Congressman." Postal officials have also made Chis point. •,


Church Supports Maferial' Gains WALBERBERG (NC)-"The Church is still vitally concerned 'about raising living standards, and welcome all material pro­ gress which genu,inely betters 'the lot of mankind," a Domini­ eim priest, declared here. Speaking at the annual meet­ Ing of German Dominicans held at the Albertus Magnus Acad­ emy here, Father Eberhard Wel­ tv, economist and theologian of the Academy, denied the charge that the Church, is opposed to material progress. "What 'the Church 'truly and .tghtfully· opposes/'the prillst explained, "is'the idea that ma­ terial pro~ress should be the pri, mary and virtually the 'only eoncern of mankind." This over­ emphasis on material concerns .eads to gross distortions in pub­ lic and private life, he said. Ecohomy is then measured by false standards and constant ma­ terial expansion becomes tlie economic goal of the body pol­ itic, he said. The proper measure of a na­ tion's economy should not be in terms of constant material ex­ pansion, he ,said, but rather i , terms of seeing to it that the maximum number of its citizens receive a' decent minimum living wage.

Russian' 'Poiso'n' High Schools Continued from Page One ·Threat to Asia particul~rly 'duri'ng puberty, NEW YORK (NC) - , The United States must Satisfy'. the intellectual hunger of Asia' or that" 'continent will fall under the hammer of Soviet commu­ riism, an expert on Far Eastern affairs warned here. Dr. Paul K. T. Sih, director of the Institute of Far; Eastern Studies at Seton Hall University, South Orange, N. J., told some 150 delegates at an institute here on. the "Hungers of Mankind" that this country must offer Asia a program of Christian human­ ism to offset the intellectually "deadly pOlson" extended 'by Soviet Russia. ' To make U. S. help to Asian peoples more effective, he sug­ gested the following: -' 1) The promotion ,of this country's Christian cause through the various' existing agencies of the U.N" and particularly through t!NESCO., ' 2) Support of the missionary cause in the' broader' sense. Dr.' Sih 'said a great number of lay' missionary' assistants are needed in this work, because the "mul­ titude' of Asian peoples is' so great that the priests cannot do all that needs to be done." , 3) More attention should 'be given to training Asian leaders "in all phases of native public . life. ' "To' satisfy the intellectual hunger of Asia, a great number of Asian Catholic intellectuals are, needed," Dr. Sih !ltated. 4) - More interest on the part of Catholic educational institutions in Asian scholars, and an inten,.. sitied parti<:ipation in student and teacher exchange programs.

Last Seminar Slated By Diocesan Council Last Seminar in a series of four, on the methods of teach­ ing religion by the laity, spon­ sored by New Bedford District of the Fall River Diocesan Coun­ cil of Catholic Women and directed by Rev.

it should 'not be approved. ' ' 3) Divini illius Magistri, the 1929 'encyclical 'of Pope Pius XII on the Christian education of youth, which describes coeduca­ 'tion' as "fallaCious and harmful to Christian institutions," must be borne in mind. ' c­ , . 4) It cannot be denied, how­ ever, ,that in certain cases co­ education ~annot be avoided. In such instances it is to be con­ sidered a lesser evil. 5) In certain countries where youths . attend public' schools, their Faith' runs a serious risk. Catliolics cannot always build two separate schools for boys and girls in the 'same locality, however, and sometimes it is difficult to build even one. "Therefore in practice," says the instruction; "youths are com­ pelled: ,a) to attena public schools where they are educated togeth­ er without any thought for the religious aspect 'of the question, ill1d where' , their Faith and morals are' ,greatly endangered; , b) To attend mixed Catholic schools where there is no peril to their faith and where the' greater part 'of the moral dang­ ers can' be avoided by, taking 'certain precautions." The instruction' then says that '.'if mixed Catholic schools. . .' are administered with certain precautions, even coeducation according 'to the norm of the encyclical 'Divini illius Magistri' can be tolerated." The instruction then treats of the regulations ,which must be borne in mind and respected wherever coeducational high schools are necessary.

3 Good Reasons Slash:. Endang'ers '

'for saving Mission Schools :'

at'The LEOPOLDVILLE (NC)-Cath'­ olics fear that' a further cut iR' Old Red Bank ,government subsidies to mission,

schools in the Congo and Ruan­ c;ia-Urundi may mean that sOIl).e . schools wiJl be forced to close. ' The new' subsidy slash, an-', nounced in an unexpticted gov"; ernment circular to mission su­ periors, is retroactive to the be­ ginning of the current 1957-58 school year. Since school ad­ ministrators have already ad­ justed their budgets on the basis of the standard annual subsidy, they point out that many schools may have 'serious difficulty' in completing the school year. In 1956 an agreement 'was signed by representatives of the Belgian Liberal-Socialist coali­ tion government, the Church's mission schools and Protestant .mission schools. According to the agreement, 45 per cent of the general budget for educa,. tion in the, Congo and Ruanda­ Urundi was assigned to state ,schools 45 per cent to . Catholic mission schools and 10 per cent" to Protestant mission schools. ' authorities have Ch ur ch pointed out that' though the sub­ sidy to Catholic mission schools seeins la1-ge 'it must be kept in mind' that there' are, 900,000 pu­ pils in' Catholic mission schools as contrasted 'with 60,000 iil state . operated schools., , With the 'cut in 'the aid, Cath­ olics in the missions and in Bel­

gium are concerned about, the future of the schools. '
