"Screen Play­ writing," to better understand artistic standarils;.: 5) They ought to write reviews of films to develop mental dis­ cipline and critical thinking. 6) dUb members should check their reviews against those ap­ pearing in Films in Review, a. mont.hly magazine published by the National Board of Review of Motion Pictures, with head­ quarters in New York. "After a year 01' two of such discipline,'- Mi'. Fischer stated, "club members will find them­ selves looking at films with new and more Intelligent "msights.

Collaboration Essential To Lasting World Pe,ace By Donald McDonald

Davenport Catholic Messenger

Several weeks ago, I commented J:1ere on Pope Pius XII's address to Pax Romana' on the movement for world union and the responsibility of Catholics, particularly intellectuals, to contribute to' the successful outcome of that movement. I promised to return to this subject fol­ cultlire and the competence ac­ lowing receipt of the full quired in your profession con­ text of the Pope's address. fer on you," said the Pope to the If anything, the text discloses an even stronger affirmation of the need for both world un­ 10n and Catho­ lic contributions thereto t han was indicated In ' the first news report of the Pope's speech. "A Christian," mys the Holy Father, "cannot remain Indiffer­ ent to the development of the world. If he sees roughly out­ lined, under the pressure of events, an ever more. definite In­ ternational community, he knows that this union wllled by the Cre­ ator ought, to culminate In the union of minds and hearts In a common faith and a common love. "Not onIf can he, but he must work for the achievement' of this community still In the making. Catholic Collaboration As I pointed out in the earlier column, Pius XII raises the question whether Catholics can collaborate In the formation of this world community With those "institutlons where God Is not expressly recognized as the au­ thor and legislator of the uni­ verse." His answer to this question is "yes", and it may be useful to note two preliminary points leading to his affirmative an­ • wer. The first is Pius' conception of the function of Catholic intellec­ tuals as such. "You are not iso­ lated researchers 01' autonomous thinkers," he tells the Pax Ro­ mana members. "You 'are Cath­ olic intellectuals, which means that you are charged with a uni­ versal social responsibility for all that which concerns the spread of Christian truth and Its con­ crete application in all fields of activity." Social Responsibility The genuine Intellectual Is not, then, the "egghead" which antl­ 1ntellectuals too often would have the non-Intellectuals be­ lieve. He Is not a narrow special­ Ist, nor Is. he a pure theorist, though both specialization and theory are indispensable. Neither 1s he simply' a clever conversa':. tionalist content with making points in the drawing-room or salon, flashy in the way that a toy rocket Is flashy and with about as much staying power. The genuine Catholic Intel­ lectual is, rather, "charged with a universal social responsibility." This may explain, ]. might add, why the authentic Catholic in­ tellectual, the man whose Catho­ licity and scholarship are as deep as they are unquestionably of one piece, Is invariably In othe very front of all truly progres­ elve reforms, whether the re­ forms be of political, social or economic structures, both in the nation and between ·natlons. This may' also explain why in­ tellectuals are so cordially de­ Ilpised by all self-serving special­ interest groups and by those citi­ zens of demagogic Inclinations whose approach to all social, po­ litical and economic problems is fundamentally emotional. Short-Cut Apologetics The second point of Pius XII is one which is today being dis­ cussed with Increasing frequency Itnd penetration, particularly among certain French and Eng­ lish theologians. "By the Quthority which your


Pax Romana members, "you are for your milieu both a question and an answer." Contrast this recognition of the "infllience" value of culture and personal competence in one's work or profession with the atti­ tUde, still too often found in short-cut apologetics and apos­ tolic formulae, that "zeal" and , "good Intentions" are really all that count. Competence, If It is consldered,at all, Is tolerated but always on a kind of skeptical ba­ sis, as though fidelity to one's work or profession had to be watched lest It undermine one's apostolic actions.

not, or course, undermine the apostolate, It supports It. Un­ conniving dedication to one's work, uncompromising effort to bring the comp~tence of one's work up to the level of one's tal­ ents, commands the natuml ad­ miration and respect of the man Who, so far as religion is con­ ,cerned, is an unbeliever. It Is only after such an unbeliever has come to respect the natural good­ ness of the competent craftsman or professional that he Is led to wonder at the underlying moti­ vation of such competence. Whether or not he comes to see that motivation Is a profound Christian inspiration, he Is, at least, heading in the right direc­ tion.


The Holy Father asks the ques­ tion whether those Catholic in­ tellectuals who have achieved considerable public influence should participate in "uncertain enterprises" of an International character; since such participa­ tion "could seem to stand surety for an Inadmissable political or social system." Prejudice and Passion His answer is again encourag-' Ing. Despite this seemingly un­ favorable situation, "there still exists" he'says, "a vasf area in which min,ds free from prejudice . 'and passion ,can bring harmony and help one another for the sake of a real and valuable com­ mon good." In those international organi­ zations "which propose a uni­ versal .humanitarian goal for themselves," say Pius, Catholic intellectuals will find "'some gen­ ,erous souls and superior minds which are susceptible to being raised above material preoccu­ pa.tlons and of understanding that the truly, collective destiny of humanity presupposes the ab.­ solute value of each of the indi­ viduals who compose It ..." Catholic Responsibility "Reason" and mutual recogni­ tion of the "natural law" are solid enough support, says Pius. for Catholics to contribute their share to the world community in formation. Reading between the lines of the Pope's Pax Romana addl:ess, I do not think it is fanciful to say he seems to feel that if Cath­ olics, in fact, do not contribute their share to the organization of the world community ,the world has but two alternatives: a world union forced by tyranny,' or a world conflict ending in glo­ bal catastrophe. Indeed, he re­ marks that "men and nations" 'are convinced that these are the alternatives to a world commun­ ity based on law. Significantly, he does not dissociate himself from that conviction.

Way to Help eyO Players By Jack Kineavy Somerset Bleh School Coach

An unwritten but well adhered to baseball law de­ mands that changes be made when a club is floundering. Such is the case with the Washington Senators. As a re­ sult, manager Charley Dressen was fired by president Cal Griffith In Detroit on the Sen at 0 l' s' first Western The new league brIngs to 28 the number of circuits in the Nation- swing. The action brought howls al Association which embraces elf derision from all Quarters, It being a generally regarded cer­ taInty that the present Washing­ ton roster would experIence diffi­ culty in a Triple A classification. However, as a matter of expe­ dience, the manager is the most expendable and It is he who must ao. Named to succeed Dressen was Coach Harry Lavagetto. It Is no no secret that "Cookie" was a most reluctant successor. This is readlly understandable. Lava­ aetto has long been a Dressen aide. He, too, severed connections with the Brooklyn organization

In '53 when the Dodger front office refused to give boss Dres­ len any more than a one year pact, even though Charley had annexed the National League title that year. Actually Ludicrous The situtation actually is ludi­ crous. There has been no evI­ dence of player disgruntlement with Dressen. Early In the month, fiery Catcher C 1 i n t Courtney was fined $200 for In­ lubordlnation, but Pete Runnels and Eddie Yost - two of the few bona fide major league opera­ . tlves of the club - vouched for Dressen's fair-mindedness In his dealings wIth the players. The move certainly can't be attribut­ ed to financial belt tightening. The club is obligated to honor its contract with Bressen, and It Is only natural to assume that Lavagetto's paycheck will be larger in keeping wIth his greater l'esponslblllties. That Dressen IS IL most competent baseball man aoes without saying. What then has the front office gained? Lavagetto's reaction is signifi­ cant. "What can I do that Charley couldn't?" he asked. Indeed, the ways of baseball ·are aometimes strange. Paroehlab Bumble Somerset Coach Ed Lowney's Holy Fami­ ly nine came up with the bIggest upset of the scholastic season last Thursday, a 1-0 decisIon over So mer II e t, defending Narry League champions. The game was J'emln1scent of past historic Iltruggles between the two friend­ ly rivals. Beaten in an early Ileason encounter and mired deep In the standings with an Ull1m­ pressive 2-7 record, the Parochia­ als weren't conceded a chance agaInst their talent laden rivals. The game certainly Js lllustrative of the humbling influence of sports. It is a well known fact that coaches - particularly foot­ ball coaches - have a tendency to "cry poor" In pre-season anal­ )'ses. Some characterIstically re­ duce caution to absurdity. I wonder, however,1! some of these dour predictions aren't born of an experIenced appreciation for ,the fickle bounces a ball may take during the course of a sea­ Eon. }'ar I'rom Dead The minors experiment with the lookie Nebraska State cil'cuit evidently was a success.
