invasion of a citizen's. privacy ­ help 01" hinder the common goOd?" Candidates for Office Let us take the citizen who Is addicted to alcohol, or even one who is valiantly trying to over­ come such an addiction. This individual 'enters the field of politics and finds himself run­ ning for an Important political position, one in which clear thinking, reliability and integrity are of. the utmost importance so far as the comJ:l1on good Is concerned. • A newspaper ,may well decide that disclosure of this individu­ al's aberration Is clearly justified under the circumstances. An­ other Individual with a similar problem, but with no such public aspiration or potentiality for great good or evil so far as so­ ciety Is concerned, Is entitled to utmost privacy as he works out his particular problem.· A person' retains the' right to his reputa­ tion and good name so long as such retention does notsubstan­ tially Injure the cOplmon' good. Right to Good Name I fail·to see why entertainers, simply because they are enter­ tainers and in the public eye, lose their right to their good name. I have heard some' pUblishel's maintain that an entertainer forfeits the right to his reputa­ tion when his actions do not square with the reputation.' But If that be the argtlment for in­ vasion of privacy, then who of .us, including newspaper publish­ ers, wlll cast the first stone? Let u~ then have the full disclosure of all the vices. of all citizens, not forgetting the'vices of those parasites". the gossip columnists who make their living by the , amount of scandal and salaclous­ 'ness they ,can' find or insinuate. Getting back to Franciosa, his quarrel should not, have been with the news photographer. It should have been with the em­ ployer- of the photQ!i-i·apher. 'The latter was simply' carrying out orders. But then It seems to me, the publisher, not Franciosa, should have been made to pay for the damaged camera, 'and he could have profited. too, by a little lecture on the social- respon­ sibilities of a free press.

The two of them w ere p h o,t 0­ ,graphed by a Los Angeles Herald - Exam­ iner press pho­ tographer a few days be for e they went through their wedding ceremony. Franciosa objected to being photographed by the Los Angeles newsman and reinforced his ob­ Jections by roughing up the photographer. dam a gin g his camera and generally creating quite a disturbance. Judge Brandler, In the subse­ quent court action, denied Fran­ ciosa's request to change his , original plea from "guilty" to "innocent" and imposed the fine and jail sentence. ' Point Overlooked As I say, Franciosa may be just an undesirable kind of fellow to liave around, but his protest, after receiving Judge Brandler's sentence, was right on the point that the Judge seems to have overlooked. "This Is not justice," shouted Franciosa. "Who's going to pro­ tect me from people like him?" he' asked, referring to the news photographer. , I think that Is a very good question, nobody In the Holly­ wood courtroom tried toanswel' it.By what right may a news­ paper invade the privacy of an individual? If a per~on desires that his picture. or some element of his private life, not be' dis­ closed to the general public, on what basis maya newspaper, or any other communication med­ ium, override the person's Insist­ ence on privacy? Cle'arly Necessary It seems to me that the only legitimate basis for making pub­ lic the private life of an individ­ ual Is' that such disclosure Is clearly necessary for the common good. When certain, features of the private life of a citizen are clearly and directly related to the common good. when' the knowledge of such private mat­ ters is essential to the safeguard. ing of the common good. then public disclosure Is not only permissible, It Is mandatory. A newspaper's invasion of pri­ vacy cannot be justified merely on the grounds that such prac­ tice helps the' publisher sell his newspapers. It cannot be justified on the grounds that'-"the public wants" such material. Nor can It even be justified with the ritual­ istic appeal..to the First Amend­ ment guarantees of a "free press." Against the press' freedom to publish we have the Individual, citizen's freedom not to be published. And the only principle that can reconcile these .two J j'reedoms with justice to both the press and the cl"Uzen is that principle that has reference 'to the common good. The question that the newspaper publisher J:/lmt ask himself is not a compli-­ cared Question, but I sometimes

Mao, the Communist Dictator of China, has just admitted li­

quidating 800,000 of his people. This figure is perhaps only a frac­

tion of those whose lives, like unripe wheat, have been untimely cut

by the Communist sickle. Mao has said that the. Catholics amo~g

this number were not perecuted or liquidated, because of their rell­

'gion, but because they were "unpattiotic". The same charge wa~ di­

rected against Our Lord in the court of PUate: "Thou art not a fnend

of Caesar." Now the name is Mao instead of Caesar. Even the f~rces

of evil know that the Faith is so sacred and thatit should be attacked

under another name; just as, Judas knowing that Christ was the

Son of God, prefaced his betrayal with a sign of affection,. the !llls­ tering kiss. '

Number of Negro Clergy Increases BAY ST. LOUIS, Miss. (NC)­ There has been a 100 per cent in­ crease In the American Negro clergy since 1950, accQr9ing to the June issue of St. Augustine's Messenger. Sixty-two priests are working In the U; S, There were only 37 Negro ,priests in 1950. The maga­ zine says there are' 20 living Ne­ gro Catholic bishops throughout the world, all of them appointed by Pope Pius XII. Since the preparation of 'the list, two other Negro bishops have been named by the Pope.

There are two possible reactions to thisliql.lidatlon and perse­

cution of the Faith: one, inspired by the·newspaper. the other' by

the life of Christ. If the first, our reaction Is

to say, "Oh! aren't they terrible, those Com­

munists." It the second, we say, "Oh, how

terrible, am I, not to feel their pain, their

5ufferlng, and their death as.my own."

While these people are striped of life, can­ not w'e like Christ be stripped of a garment for their redemption. During the entire yeat' of 1956 the Catholics of the United' States , gave only 30 cents apiece to the Holy Father to aid the persecuted and suffering In Asia, Africa and Oceania. This is not sharing either the passion of the Chinese or the Pas­ sion of Christ. When Our Lord was stripped , of His garments it was to put on the' nakedness~of our ~hame, our holding comforts to ourselves and our luxuries. , My good people, why not practice self-derial ;- - - just a little, a day; only a few cents. At the end of the month send ,it to us and we will send It to the Holy Father.

Court's Anti-Obscenity Decisions Reaffirmed Public Morality

SCRANTON (NC)-Convictlon of a Newton Lake, Pa., drive-in movie theater manager for show­ Ing an obscene motion picture has been upheld by the Pennsyl­ vania Superior Court. Regarding the constitutional Issue raised, Judge Wright said that "the words used in the sta­ scene material is material which tute here under consideration deals wIth sex in a manner ap­ have well settled connotations peallng to prurient interest." which can be applied by the It T t f Ob exercise of ordinary common. 6S 0 seen y sense and reason.

The court cited the instructions exist as the substance of ·soclety.

definite standards which will aid both the government in deter­ mining positive procedures" to tight the problem of indecent reading material. "In its rulings, the Supreme Court reafIil'med the concept of public morality that Is funda­ mental to a continuation of the American way of life . . . The cause of decency has been atrengthened," he said. Another comment on the court's action came from Post­ master General Arthur Summer­ field. A Federal anti-obscenity law prohibiting the mailing of Questionable material was olle of those upheld by the court. Welcomes Decision "The Post Office Department welcomes the decision of the Su­ preme Court as a forward step In the drive to keep obscene materials out of the malls," the Postmaster General stated. "We have been doing our best vigorously to protect our people­ particularly our young people­ against the effects of obscene publications which to a very considerable extent are sent into homes wit h 0 u t even being ordered." Mr. Summerfield said. Abe McGregor Goff, who Is the Post Office solicitor or legal ad­ visor to the Postmaster General and principal department offi­ cials, said in a statement the department now will be able to put more peddlers 'of lewd pic­ tures and printed matter out of business as a result of the decision. But he said the department .will not become a "puritanical censor" or do "anything unrea­ sonable" because its hand has 'been strengthened by the deci­ sion. Senator's Comment Sen. Estes Kefauver of Ten­ nessee. chairman of the .8enate subcommittee on juvenile delin­ Quency. hailed the court decisions as a "sound move to protect our foung people" from obscene literature. The Benator said too much lascivious material is being de­ livered through the mails and the court's rulings "may give us the gl'ound to close legislative loopholes involving this pel'lli­ clous literature," Who's to say what's obscene? This simple question has crip­ pled man y efforts to deal effectively with the problem «If Indecent reading matter ilnd other lewd material, such a.q filnt". Justice William J. Brennan Jr.,

WASHINGTON (NC) - The nation's highest tribunal scored three telling blows against ob­ scenity in literature. "Obscenity Is not within the area of constitutionally protect­ ed speech or press," the U. S. Supreme Court ruled in uphold­ ing a Federal statute· which prohibits the mailing of indecent literature. At the same time, the court declared valid a California law dating back to 1870 which makes it a crime to write. advertise or distribute Indecent literature, and also upheld a New York law which permits a court to bar the distribution of obscene printed matter. Another decision by ihe Su­ prenw Court upheld by a 5.. to-3 vote the "anti-strip tease" law of Newark, N. J. The court re­ affirmed the decision handed down by the New Jersey Supreme Court.-

Unfair Criticism

Despite Husband's Absence'

LONDON (NC) - "No unfair or unworthy criticism of the way we trY'to carry out the mandate of Christ can be allowed to check or slow our efforts." This answer was given by Archbishop WiIllam Godfrey of Westminster to charges by Angli­ can prelates that the Church is using "aggression" and "totali­ tarianism" in "openly waging war against the Church of Eng­ land." , These charges were made In recent addresses by the Arch­ bishop of Canterbury, Dr. Geof­ frey Fisher, and Anglican Bish­ ops Gerald A. Ellison of Chester and F. R. Barry of Southwell• They were made, In the opinion of Catholic observers. here, be­ cause of the Increase' in the number of Anglicans being con­ verted to Catholicism. "We are bidden by Christ to teach the Gospel ·to every crea­ ture. Whether we proclaim God's truth in oUf own land or send .missionaries all over the world. our preaching is in obedience to this command," the Archbishop replied.

Bishop Stresses Power of Faith At State Legionnaires Mass

Jesuit Backs

Labor Unions

DUBLIN July 4 - An American Jesuit sociologist declared here that despite some corruption, organized

labor In the United States Is "socially sound, politically cor­ rect, ethically earnest and eco­ nomically necessary." Father William J. Smith, S.J., director of St. Peter's Institute of Industrial Relations In Jersey City, said Amerclan labor un­ 10ns have established a record of "numberless, unprecedented ac­ c:ompllshments" in the past two decades. Exploiters Few Dealing at length with the c:urrent exposure being made by the special Senate labor-man­ agement . investigating commit­ tee in Washington, F\'lther Smith maid: "Actually what we have had In America for some years has been n dual labor movement. One of legitimate labor activity, consti­ tuting about 95 per cent of the movement, led and Inspired by relatively good and honest men, the other five per cent a con­ glomeration of unscrupulous ex­ ploiters of the needs of the work­ 1ng people, trading upon the democratic nature of the trade llnlon organization."

Minnesotans Would Reveal Preference

RecaJls Past

Denying that the "vicious ele­ ments" whose names are now In the headlines are typical of the leaders of the American labor . movement, Father, Smith said, "The recent turn of events merely confirms' me In the be­ lief and conviction that the workers should have more de-' fenders among the clergy rather than less." Asserting that for 50 years prior to the Franklin D. Roose­ velt administration, America's llnorganized workers were "vic­ tims of It sustained calculated lluppression," Father Smith de­ clared: "Much of the maladjustment which today exists In employer­ employee relations can be traced to It common source in the far dim past of American industrial experience. It was not until 1935 that the Wagner Act gave to the American worker any­ thing like an adequate legal pro­ tection for his nlltural right to ()rganlze Into legitimate trade unions. The very principle was ruthlessly resisted for more than , 60 years. "Today, under the guise of averting socialism, protecting a private free enterprise system that Is partially at least at vari­ ance with Its own principles, and preserving an old order which had never proved Its right to prevail, there are Influential forces In my country still subtly endeavoring to undermine this basic right of free workers In a free country." Father Smith declared that a Iltrong labor movement Is neces­ Ilary tor the hefllth of the Amer­ lean economy even though the use of power brings with It the danger of Its abuse.

MINNEAPOLIS (NC) - Most Minnesotans would not object it . they should be asked about their religious preference by Federal censu~ takers in 1960. This was revealed In a state­ wide survey conducted by the Minneapolis Tribune. One adult in every three questioned (34 per cent) thought It would be u' "good idea" for the census to col­ lect this information. , Forty-two per cent said it did not make an-y difference to them, and 22 per cent thought a ques­ tion on religious preference would be a "poor idea." Of the 34 per cent in favor of the ques­ tion 37 pel' cent were Catholic and 33 per cent Protestant.

The Most Reverend Bishop presided and preached at the Memorial Mass for deceased Massachusetts Legionaires In St. Lawrence Church, New Bedford last Saturday morning. The Mass was helq In conjunction with the State Convention of the Ameri­ can Legion held in New Bedford. The Memorial Mass was cele­ brated by the Re·v. Aurelian L. ¥oreau, pastor of St. Hyacinth Church, New Bedford; deacon was the Rev. Alfred J. Gendreau; assistant at St. Mary's Cathedral, Fall River; sub-deacon was the Rev. Alfred R. Forni, pastor of St; Francis of Assisi Church, New Bedford. All three priests are former service chaplains. The Bishop spoke to the sever­ al hundred Legionnaires present on the power of their faith over the fears that pervade tl1e world. He urged them not to be carried away in the hysteria that sweeps the country and world a stampede In the face of com­ JDunlsm - but to have fa'ith in God, in themselves, in our coun­ try and what'ti'ue freedom stands for. Courage Needed The Bishop pointed out that a body of men like the American Legion, in making resolutions and setting down policy, must be motivated by trust in their con­ Victions, confidence in what real freedom means. Fear of ignor­ ance, of disease, are counteracted by education and vaccines. Fear of c'ommunlsm must be counter­ acted not by panic but by the setting forth of the "American story" which Is written not 1n material possessions but In prin­ ciples and ideals. The men of the Legion. who know what fear In battle Is, and who did their duty in the -face of fear, must use that same

Ascendant Protestantism Harms Foreign Relations By

M~st

Rev. Robert J. Dwyer, D.D.

Bishop of Reno

Bishop Bromley Oxnan has long called attention to bis own curious combination of bad temper and worse judgment. Both were painf~]]y conspicuous iII his address, the other day, at the corner-stone laying of a new school of foreign service of the Ameri­ can University, Was h j n g­ Cathollc. They do not ask a ton, D. C. He offered gratu­ religious test; they ask for under­ standing. And there have been itous insult to the work of many such men In the diplomatic

the Jesuits along similar lines at Georgetown University. Now it Is altogether likely that the poor Society will survive his displeas­ ure; what Is dlstUl'blng is that he Is spokesman for a rather noisy pressure group whose In­ fluence In our foreign relations, has already done serious harm to the national reputation. America's· diplomatic relations, both In EUl'ope and Latin Amer­ ica, are very largely with nations which are Catholic in background and culture. Their governments may not be specifically Catholic, It' Is true, and In cases may be Etrongly anti-clerical. But they are deflnetly not Protestant and they are not in the least tempted to appreciate what might be called, In the phrase that every Irishman understands~ the "Pro­ testant Ascendency." Goal Is Destruction The characteristics of this mood are a smug self-righteous­ ness, an arrogant assumption of liuperiority, and a loathing for everything Catholic. It is ignor­ ant, provincial, and childish. It must be clearly distinguished from genuine Protestantism sin­ cerely held as a religious belief, for it has very little if anything to do with religious principles, and Its proponents, generally EPeaking, are not particularly Interested in creed or cult. Their Interest is far less the advance­ ment of Protestantism than It is the destruction of Catholicism. To the extent - a distressingly large extent - that men of this ilk have found their way Into the American foreign service and have handled the business of representing America throughout the Catholic world, they have fostered the Impression that the United States is their kind of country. They have built up an­ other black legend of the "Colos­ EUS of the North" as a letter-day champion of the Protestant EPlrlt, not, again, as a religious manifestation, but as a kind of Eocial snobbery. Their abysmal Ignorance of Catholicism and their total inability to appreciate the meaning of Cathollc culture have colored theh: dealings with the Catholic world and have made it practically impossible for any satisfactory meeting of minds to be achieved. . Arouses Disgust We In America have long pondered the mystery of why our dollars, so laVishly laid out for foreign l'ellef, have met with EO little gratitude. There are many reasons, psychological as well as political, but among them the factor of disgust for this "Ascendent Protestantism" is by no means negligible. It has cer­ tainly played its part in the Italian reaction to American aid, and volumes might be written about the bungling of the pro­ gram in Western Germany' 'on this very score. As for Latin America, the story reaches back to our first patronizing contacts In the early 19th cenury, and the ensuing hundred years seem to have taught the State Depart­ ment amazingly little. Is this to suggest· that Protes­ tants are Incapable of handllng our relations with: nations of Cat hoi i c culture and back­ ground? Emphatically not. An educated Protestant whose sym­ pathies are broad enough to pel'mlt him to respect the reality and depth of the Faith, planted In the people among whom he Is to represent America, is certainly as acceptable til ,.. them· as a

service and they have brought honor to Its name. A Washington Irving at the Court of Spain may not have been a great diplomat. but he had the wit to realize that he was not dealing with Yahoos. One Hugh Gibson is worth a hundred little men with little minds. Offends Protestants Back in 1919 the Georgetown school of foreign 5ervice was founded for the specific and pa­ triotic purpose of educating a personnel equipped to handle Am&ican relations with Intelli­ gence and. comprehension. Reared under the tutelage of that colorful figure, the late Father Edmund Walsh, S.J., the school has· made a notable contribution. It has tried to Impress upon its students the cardinal necessity of some understanding and ap­ preciation of those world cultures with which they are to deal. The last thing It has tried to· be or wanted to be is an agency for the propagation of Catholicism. It is content to see Its graduates go Jnto the field with a sense of cultural realities and a saving humility in the face of the enor­ mous compelxity of human rela- . tions. The strong likelihood is that those most offended by the remarks of Bishop Oxnam are not Catholics like ourselves, but those Protestant alumni of the school who owe to it their aware­ ness of civlllzation. It is not that his exhibition of bad manners Is Important In it­

self, save as ]t reflects the

maladjustment of men of his

type. The danger Is that America should ever be victimized by the "Protestant Ascendency" psycho­ logy to the point of embittering the rest of the world beyond hope of reconciliation. The good Bish­ op might be reminded that the Protestant Ascendency died In Ireland at the time of the Clare elections.

WASHINGTON (NC)-This capital is holding out two grave warnings to the world. These are, one, that Soviet Russia is still the impacable enemy of the demo­ cratic nations and, two, that Moscow is not to be trusted. To some, these may seem anachronistic, in view of the at In London regarding the re­ disarmament talks in Lon­ duction of armaments must in­ clude some fool-proof system of don. Actually, they could Jnspection. not be more timely. There are in the Government here otIicials who have made careers of the study of the Soviet Union. They seek to know not only what Moscow does, but why it does it. They note the obvious Implications of every communist move, and they strive to dig out the hidden meanings. Two Faced These students of Soviet Rus­ sian communism have steadily warned this country and the world not to be misled by the "sweetness and light" generated by the "smiling facade" policy adopted by Khrushchev and Bul­ ganin. They pose the question, Is the Soviet Union still an ene­ my dedicated to our destruction?, and they answer It in the affirm­ ative. They advise, look closely and you will see that only the

tactic has l?een changed. While Khrushchev and Bulganin may seem to say one thing to the outside world, they warn, other Red leaders are telling their own people at honie that "co-exist­ ence" with the West means to communists struggle and hosti­ lity. Some people wondered why th~ nations of the free world· chose· this time to· repudiate the 1953 Korean armistice agreement with the communists. Weren't the dis­ armament talks ·in progress in London, and didn't this look like a lack of confidence In the Reds? The answer Is "yes." It would ~eem a good guess that it was intended that way.

Reportedly some of the top officials here hold varying views as to the extent to which the R u s s I a n communists can be trusted. Some, apparently, would not trust them at all. Others would be Inclined to make an agreement if there were proper safeguards for its enforcement. But the safeguards, Including en­ forceable inspection, seem to constitute the basic minimum of trust. The American people are not likely to accept anything less.

Third Person Proceeds From Both Father and Son :1 By F. J. Sheed.

The production of a Second Person does not exhaust the infinite richness of the dIvine nature. Our Lord tells us of a Third Person. There isa Spirit, to whom Our Lord will entrust His followers when He Himself shall have ascended to the Father. "r the love of Father and son will ask the Father and He should be called their Breath. will give you another Para­ Breath and Life Let us note two things. It is clete, that He may abide of universal experience that love

with ~ou" (John xiv.16) The Spirit, like the Word, is a person,. He, not It. "But the Pa.raclete, the Holy Spirit, whom the Fa­ ther will send in my name. He wllI teach you all t h f n g s" (John xlv.26). As we have already see n there Is one

huge and Instant difference be­ tween God's Idea and any idea.

we may form. His Is Someone,

ourl! Is only somethini. With an

idea which is only something,

there can be no mutuality: the thinker can know it, It cannot know him; he can admire Its beauty, It cannot admire his; he can love it, it cannot return his love. But God's Idea Is Someone, and an Infinite Someone; be­ tween Thinker and Idea there Is an Infinite dialogue, an Infinite Jnterflow. Father and Son love each other, with Infinite Inten­ liity. What we could not know, if it were not revealed to us, is that they unite to express their love and that the expression is a third divine Person. In the Son, the Father utters His self-knowl­ edge; in the Holy Spirit, Father Ilnd Son utter tJleir mutual love. Love Is Infinite

Their love Is infinite; Its ex­ pression cannot be less. Infinite love does not express Its very self finitely: it can no more produce Jnadequate expression than in­ finite knowledge can produce an inadequate Idea. Each gives Himself wholly to the outpouring of His love for the Other, holding nothing -back-indeed the very thought of holding back Is ridi­ culous; If they give themselves at all, they can give themselves only totally-they possess nothing but their totality! The uttered love of Father and Son Is Infinite, lacks no perfection that they have, is Ood, a Person, Someone. As the one great opemtion of .pirlt, knowing, produces the Second Person. 80 the other, lov­ ing, produces the Third. But be careful upon this-the Second Ill'OCeeds from. Is produced by. the First alone; but the Third, the Holy Spirit, proceeds from Father and Son, as they combine to express their love. Thus In the Nlcene Creed we say of Him "qui ex patre filloque procedit"­ who proceeds from the Father and the Son; and In the Tantum Er~o we sing to Him "procedentl ab utroque"-to Him who pro­ ceeds from both. We have seen the fitness of the names Son and Word for the Second Person. Why Is the Third called Spirit? Meaning of Spirit Here the word Spirit-like the old English Ghost-is best un­ derstood as "breath." This is the root meaning; our ordinary word . Ilpirit comes from it. because Ilpirit Is invisible, as air Is. It Is in its root meaning that Spirit Is the name of the Third Person­ He Is the "breath" or "breath­ ing" of Father and Son. That is Our Lord's chosen name for Him: and It Is more than a name: He breathes upon the apostles as He says "Receive ye the Holy Ghost"; when the Holy Ohost descends upon them at Pentecost. there Is at first the rushing of a mighty wind. We may wonder why the Third Person who h< the utterance of

has an effect upon the breath­ ing, it Is a simple fact that the lover's breath comes faster. And there is a close connection be­ tween breath and life-when we stop breathing, we stop living. In the Nlcene Creed the Holy Spirit is called "the Lord and giver of life." The link between life and love Is not hard to see, for love Is a total selfgiving, Rnd so a giving of life~ One final reminder.' We saw how the Second Person is within the same nature, as an Idea Is . always within the thinker's mind. BLESSES FISHING FLEET: Bishop Connolly ,chats with Rev. Leo J.

Levenson's Henry Adam's Good Introducto~y Study

Is

I

Perfect Average

By Rev. D. Bernard Thean, O,S.B.

One of the most many-sided and brilliantly perceptive of American thinkers is the subject of 1.. C. Levenson's The, Mind and Art of Henry Adams (Houg-hton Mifflin, $6.00) The opening- sentence of the book says that "Henry Adams offers his fellowAmericans the richest and Russia and China that Adams 'most challenging' imag-e of saw as so important for tne what they are, what they world's future is the subject of a

\

-

htwe, been, and what they may become," and, considered from the purely na-' tural point of view, this is not far from the truth. , In the history of Amer ican thought and lit­ erature, Adams has an impor­ tant place, in manf different categories. He is the author of one of the best pieces of histori­ cal writing in, the English lan­ guage, and perhaps the most bl:Uliant done by an American Ruthor.The Education of Henry AdAms ranks next to Franklin's Autobiography as the' best Amer­ ican example of writing about self. Mont S~. Michel and ,Char­ tres is one of the best historical )andartistic surveys of the high point of the Middle Ages, though a Catholic will alwaYii have to Qualify very stl'Ongly its religious and philosophical worth. As a letter~writer, Adams was perhaps the best America has to offer. of those Whose familiar epistles are published. Finally, he would seem to have been one of the country'S great teachers, dur­ ing his short but very infh.iential period at Harvard. Prophetic Insight All of these aspects of Adams' life and work are touched upon in this new study which, perhaps because its author is young, as students of Adams go, is not as deeply perspective as one might wish, where religious thought is concerned - but which is never­ theless, a good introductory study. Perhaps the most striking. thing about Adams was, the pro­ phetic nature of his insight into the American future. At a time. toward the end of the nineteenth century, when England, France, and Germany were great world powers, and the potentials 'of Russia and the United States unknown, 'Adams was warning his correspondents that, within 50 years or so, the destinies of the habitable world would be in the hands of America and Russia -and, further, that China would, at the Same time, be a world power to reckon with, because her destiny in -the foreseeable future was inexkicably linked with that of Russia.

Atomic Power

Adams even dared to prophecy that twentieth century develop­ ments in China would be preced­ ed by military action in Korea, and this at a time when most of the world had hardly any know~ ledge of that little Oriental land. Again, it is a commonplace today to point to the last stanza of Adams' "Prayer to the Dynamo," Which complemented his "Prayer to the Virgin," as highly pro­ phetic of what the unleashing of atomic power would mean to the world. The stanza reads: Seize, then, the Atom! rack his joints! Teal' out of him his secret spring! Grind him to nothing'!-though he POilUS To us, and his life - blood anoints Me-the dead Atom-King'! This was wl'itten in 1901-but it has been only withitl the last decade that it has been quoted time and time again as a'sum­ ming-up of one dreadful aspect of life in the modern world. Russia and China 'That relatio~ls~i9 bet wee D

detailed account' by Generalis­ simo Chiang Kai-shek, Soviet Russia in China (Farrar, Stl"aUB & Cudahy, $5,00) An introductory section des. cribes a 25 year experiment in . "peaceful coexistence" between China and Russia, lasting from 1924 to 1949. How 'thatexperi­ ment ended, we all knOw well•. , though on this side of the world the argument will long rage as to whose responsibility was the outcome. A second section outlines, as the Genel'alissimo sees them, "The Successes and Failures of the World's Stl"Uggle Against Communism." .i\ third, and per­ haps leas~ original part, des­ cribes "The Communists' Stra­ tegy for World Revolutiori." Of United States' figures, Gen­ eral Joseph Stilwell is criticized most openly for failing to understand communist aims and strategy. By implication, Gen-. eral Marshall is also criticized for his part In the Chinese­ communist negotiations of 1946. A much more favorable account is given of the work of General Patrick Hurley. Tangled Problem The rights and wrong's of the activitie;> of Chaing's. Kuo-min­ tang government present a, very tangled problem indeed. but it is certain that a careful reading of this book will help the American reader understand a good deal more than he has hitherto known of the situa tion.· It 'is /one more addition to worthwhile contemp­ orary literature on the problem of Russia's plans for the world under her domination.

Urges Vets' Interest In Military Matters WORCESTER (NC) - Ameri­ can soldiers are among the most "spiritually sensitive" the world has ever know!)., Bishop John J. Wright of Worcester, declared here, Speaking at a convention of the Depaltment of Massachu­ setts, American Veterans of World War II and Korea (AM· VETS) , the Bishop urged soldiers and veterans to pay close atten­ tion to military matters because the )'li"esent arms race may soon make possible a war from which no one will return: He sUggested that veterans particularly watch the debate now being waged on the outlaw­ ing or limiting of nuclear tests because the opinions of ex-mili­ tary men have so great an­ influence on the public.

July 4th is an important date in major league base­ ball. Tradition has it that the team in first place on that date stands a better than even chance of annexing the pennant. At this writing it appears that first place,in the, American League can be at­ tained on the historic date lour consecutive shutouts held by only two teams, the jointly by New York and Cleve­ Yankees and the White Sox. land. The l'eturnol George Kell After last Sunday's games the Bronx Bombers moved into the league lead over Lopez & ·Co. Cleveland was In third place five games on', and the on-rushing Red Sox had moved into fourth, 1 ',2 games ahead of the faltering Tigers and 3 Y2 up on the reJuvenated Ol:ioles. Two weeks ago this time, th8' Pale Hose was riding the crest of the wave some five games out In front. The trading deadline came and went and '10, the indispensable but very disputant Billy Martin had been traded off to lowly Kansas City by the Yankee front office. Whethei· this action serv­ ed to allay the fears 01 the admittedly apprehensive Copa­ cabana combatants, 01' whether It put a burl' under the compla­ cent champions is at best an academic Question. Subsequently, however, the Yanks settled into a take charge drive that erased the five game deficit and brought them into the present deadlock. Malzone Sparkles Meanwhile the Red Sox, off a. tremendous showing in their current homestand, have again tUl'ned Fenway from a form ida­ ble to a friendly base of opera­ tlons. The Sox are now over 'the .500 mark at home and have won 10 of their last 12 games. More than a modicum of credit for this showing should gO' to Frank Malzone, the Sox' power hitting rookie. Frank had been leading off in the order early in the l5eason and the spot didn't agree with him, eVidently. At the end of April he was hitting .204. Piersall Pressing Dropped in the lineup, his hitting picked up and by the end of May Frank was at .275.

His Infield mates, shortstop Billy Klaus and second baseman Ted Lepclo, began to respond equally well upon retul'l1­ 1ng home and the net result has brought the Sox from 'way back Into contention once again. The locals have a pronounced catching weakness, though. Sam White the No, 1 receiver is hit­ ting an anemic .224, glasses and all, and his replacement, Pete Daley, is even lower at ,143.
