ByR{cv. D. Bernard '1'heall, O.S.IB.

The Reel Book of the Persecuted Church, e<med by Albert GaIter, (Newman $4.75) is sure]y one of the most· stirring and complete indictments yet rebTned agai l1 st world Communism and its struggle to wipe out the Catho­ lic Cl1ul'ch. Published earlier

in Elll·oJ.Je under the aus­ picel;> of the Commission for the Persecuted Church, the boole ha~ Imd a tremendous im­ pact thc~e and in England also. W e h 1\ V (' .," " , ':'.:,1 ]lad, of course, /~ numerous ac­ counts of Com­ munist activi­ ties a g a ins t Catholicism in t his 0 r t hat country. This book brings to­ gether a mass of documenta­ tions. statistics. and flesh - and­ blood testimony in a way that is much more ef­ fective because of its massiveness. Effective, too, Is the restraint with which the various national pictures are presented. The em­ phasls is upon exposing the systematic attacks upon Catholi­ cism through administrative and legislative trickery. a procedure. much less obvious to the world than would be direct physical assault. . Ullsic Principles An Introductory chaptet· on the methods of Communist persecu­ tion common to all countries sug'gests that certain basic prin­ ciples underly this form of activity everywhere: 1) The number of Catholics, the degree of organization, and the intensity of Christian life in the particular country: 2) The existence of a larger and more stable Christian deno­ mination that may be used ag'alnst Catholicism. Fo)' example. Russian Orthodoxy has been \Iscd, when the hierarchy of that Church publicly announces its support of and co-operation with the government; 3) The strength of the Com­ munist position within the coun­ try; 4) The possible impact of the anti - religious campaign upon opinion abroad: . 5) The use of certain PSycho­ logical devices adapted to the specific country. A second introductory chapter exposes the Communist technique of "propaganda by equivocation" used when force is deemed in­ advisable. ' No Let-Up

After this preliminary material, there is a countrY-by-country survey of the Communist-domi­ nated part of the world-begin­ 11ing·. as is natural, with Soviet Russia, where persecution of the Church got under way with the successful outcome of the Revo­ lution of .1918. From that time on, the evidence shows. there has never been a ·let-up in the pressures brought to bear upon the Church, whether psychologi­ cal, administrative and legal, 01' physical. Now and again, for reasons of policy. there has been a cynical lessenin/.l" of outward persecution. But o,lways this has been because it appem'cd necessary as the pre­ lude to a more ruthless and efficient stamping-out of the basic religious desires that lie deep in the Russian mind. Under this Russian chapter are covered countries directly within the Soviet· orbit: Estonia, Latvia" Lithuania, the Ukraine, and the Cal'patho-Ukralne most of them traditionally and strongly Catholic for ccntudes. ll!·ltmili".r Accounts There follows a detailed and l1eavily documented picture of persecution in these countries: Albania, Ij;ast Germany, BulgarIa. <C1I1 na.; KOl'~a; Ii~12rtaJ.·~. ~~Iand.

'Especially interesting is the account of the difficulties encoun- . tered by the Communists in reg­ ulating the ChUl'ch in strongl'y Catholic 'Poland, where, time after time, they wllre forced to retreat or to modify theil' repres­ sive measures.

They are'on their way to Japan to open the press within' the past few the first Passionist foundation there. From top to bottom weeks. Convincing Uefutatioll

The chief effect of this book, it seems to me, is to refute thoroughly and convincingly any possible arguments that Commu­ nism is either (a) no longer a world menace, or (b) a dangerous thing in Russia but a rather in­ nocuous feature of life in certain other parts of the W'orld, or at worst, only another form of gov­ ernment-as, say, in China. "The Red Book" makes clear the frightening unity and mas­ siveness of single purpose that marks Communism throtighout the world. It makes clear, too, the great importance attached by communists to the suppression of Catholicism. This is not to say that there has been no heroic non-Catholic resistance in this or that country, b,ut rather that the Communists are aware that it is Catholicism which must be sin­ gled out for ruthless destruction. Finally, '''The Red Book'~ ought to act as an alarm to the Ameri­ can Catholic conscience, which may forget, from time to time, what we owe to those who have fought, or are still fighting, the battle for the faith.

Parents Can Help AHeviate Heavy Burden of Teachers By Mary Tinley Daly

There's something about early Septembe1" that has a meaning of its own. With schools opening, it carries with it more of a New Year feeling than Jan. 1 ever could. . "This September brings new problems to the world of education. The pinch felt for some years, is tighter llght, a specified and inviolate time, and "consultant serv­ than ever. That bumper study ices"-even though it may mean crop of war babies are Qabies giving up a favorite TV program lllO longer. They are in the upper grades and the early years of high s c h 0 0 i ... They are the one s who are going to hit the colleges - but hard - in the lllext few years. As Catholics, we have a vast stake in the ed­ ucational prob­ lems of the present and the near future. Right now we are feellng the above-mentioned pinch. Remember how, not so many years ago, 'the last-Sunday­ in-August sermon was always a !plea to " send YOUl' children to a Catholic school"? Advantages were pointed out, parents were told .that it was thelt· duty ­ indeed their solemn obligation­ to enroll those boys and giris in the parochial school. or Catholic bigh school or college. As of now, priests must regret­ fuiiy report from the pulpit, all too often, that the parish school Is full and parents may put their children on the waiting list. And the pathetic. "Wlll those who are moving away please let us know illS soon as possible so that we ll11ay make room fOl' others?" In our parish young' mothers took up theil' posts outside the !principal's office as early as '7 a.m. when registrations were be­ ing made. Crowded Classrooms Diocesan superintendents and schooi principais everywhere are doing a ioaves-and-fishes act in lipreading school facilities' over a . maximum of pupll need. Ciass­ l'ooms are packed, with one Sister often teaching 50 011 60 pupils. Split sessions become necessary. Lunchroom and playroom space Is taxed to the utmost. And still Sistel' manages to teacll - and to discipline - an appalling numbel: of youngsters. What's more, Sistel' knows each one as an individual. How. we'll never know, but at parent-teach­ ei' consultations this is quite evident. A phrase comes back from our typing lessons: "Now is the time fOl' all good men to come to the aid of the party." Surely this is the time for all good parents to come to the aid of their own children, caught up in the maelstrom of overcrowded schools. If you're as lucky as we, and !have your chllduan in Catholic 6chools. give Sister a hand by seeing that the homework is done -i.e., understood. Provide a good

The following are excerpts fl:om several letters writ­ ten to a national magazine commenting op an article concerning religion in schools: . : . "Confine the c!.assroom to reality and remove the fan­ tasies. Let religion be questi~ned ..." ,_ . "To me, the problem of teaching our children religion is not up to the schools. God has given the;t~sk of teaching children the truth to us, their parents." ! "If any citizen, for whatever reason; i:s not satisfied . to have his children in an American public ,school, then i~ is his privilege to place them in another type of schoQl. However, that is his privilege and privileges usually must be paid for." , : .

Catholic Writer Explains How Movie Code Works

"Flying Bishop" Rescues Thomas

By William H. Mooring

You often hear talk of the Hollywood Movie Code. Do you wonder just what this is and how it 'works? Come along with me and see for yourself. In a modern office building at 8480 Beverly Boulevard, between Hollywood and Beverly Hills,. West Coast head- dozen different cases come. up. , quarters of the Motion Pic- Some show brutality in scripts. tells Father Fred Chamture Association of America, Shurlock berlain of Australia's Catholio we 'find a large suite called the Code Administration department.

Breen as Code Administrator. he did away with "secret diplomacy"; started the new policY of the open door. So we are to sit in as Code Chief ShurIe : presides over the daily conference with his expert assistants. Usually there are seven be"ides Shurlock. This morning. around the conference table we find Jack' Vizzard (chief assistant), M. J. Healy, Harry Zehner. Eugene Dougherty and Simon Levy. Morris Mui'phy and Albert Yan Scllmus are on vacation. Check Violations First Shurlock asks each man to report on bis work the day before. Most of them have read a new film script or seen a finished or partly finished movie. Did they find anything in them tha t might violate the code? One has seen a fairly innocuous western. Another has read a new script about a bunch of rather wild youths. Debbie Reynolds Is supposed to fit into this one. She's younger and more innocent than the others. begins to feel left out and wonders how she can "get with it" like the others. So at one of these beach parties she deliberately invites trouble in a deserted hut with an older fellow. "He's given a really strong s.-~ech there," reports Shurlock's man, "set her right back In her place, tells her how foolishly she's behaving, then takes aer back to the rest of the gang". Moral Compensation This sort of thing they call compznsation, moral compensation if you like. This fellow speaks for conscience. What he says is Intended by the script writer to balance right against wronw and bring out .-.dramatic conflict between the two. Shurlock says they'll have to look further into this script all together. We understand it may be touchy. The balance will have to be just right or the film may violate the Code. WI1lit "just right" may mean we can only guess. The safe answer lies in measuring ideas. Who has the perfect yardstick? What do I think of Gary Coop-er and Audrey Hepburn in "Love In the Afternoon". Shurlock asks. I do not think much Of the old roue making love to a young girl. e'But they gO' off and get married", says Shurlock, "and they were never alone there in his hotel room". I can see this means that the Movie Code was not violated. at least as to letter. If screen drama is to enjoy any freedom of expression the Code people cannot be concerned. as l 8m. because some of the situations appear to revel in occasions against purity or because a young girl's marriage to an old roue may mean no family. or be:' eause he· most likely will remain a roue anyway. l know it fa supposed to be a sparklinlf. sophisticated comedy in the Lubitsch tradition. It just happens to offend my sense of taste but [ cannot tell Shurlock where 1t ma,. have violated the Code. The main trouhle is a mass of "borderline" ,tuff is written in_ tbese days. During the two hour sittjllg &


Youth Movement who ·is visiting with us. that the 4ustralian censor and many others have been most troubled about violence in the movies. "We think we've cut down violence a great deal lately", says Shurlock, "but there are many shades ·of opimon; besides, what seems excessively violent or brutal in' one script may not seem· so in another". Of course circumstances and context. can make a lot of difference. Caters to Public Then in screenplays involvin, divorce, a legal and social fact against whieh the Code cannot properly raise barriers, opinionl often differ as to whether the Code- rule _upholding the sanctity of marriage and the home, has been observed or violated. The National Legion of Decency objected to the treatment of divorce and re-marriage in Bing CrosbY's "Man On Fire". the Lon Chaney biography, "Man of a ThoUsand Faces", .the Eve White story, "Three Faces of Eve." to mention only a few new pictures. but the Code Asiministration could hardly have done anything about these even though several of Shurlock's "cabinet" members happen to be Catholics. The Code caters to the public at large. Code Not Lelrion And before we leave this conference, be sure you understand that there is absolutely no connection between the Movie Code end the Legion of Decency. Many Catholics think there is. The Code is the film industry's own voluntary effort to keep movies within certain bounds. ethicallY and morally. and any who fear the code doesn't work or ought to work better. may be sure movies would be much worse if it wasn't in operation at all. The National Legion of Decency under authority of the Bishop's Committee on Motion Pictures. speaks to and for, you and me and about 30 million other Catholics in America. Every one of us, l dare say, is anxious to support only what the average Catholic considers to be decent entertainment. But who and what is "the a ve I' a I e Catholic?" Among ourselves we may sometimes find it as difficult to agree as to shades of meaning in a screenplay. as do the Hollywood producers and these Code expert. who try to pre-judge for them, the eventual ethical and moral effects of more than 300 commercial plays a year. The job is no cinch!

Religious Education Need Cited by Pope VIENNA <NCl-Religious education has become more important than ever in a technical age. Pope Pius XII told the third international Congress of Catholic 'reachers here. have rightly "Pedagogues pointed out that r~ligious and moral education, where active life is concerned, has now an even greater importance than scientific instruction and profes-sional education. In a technical age man needs that compactly unified education based on ablIolute truth which places God at the center of existence . . ." "The most important element of the Catholic school," said the Pope, "is the Catholic teacher. Therefore the Church attribute. aa much value to the personality formation of the Catholic teacher as it does to the Catholic school. This is particularly true in missionary countries."

For.those who feel they do not have the qualifications for classroom work, Bishop Carberry cited a number of other jobs that are Vital to the success of a religious 1nstruction program.

NEW YORK (NC) - P. J. Kenedy & Sons book publishers has announced it will publish in March, 1958, a work entitled "My Last Book" by the late Paulist Father James M. Gillis, who was an outstanding Catholic journalist.. The book was written during the last years of Father Gillis' life and is edited by Paulist Father Joseph McSorley. It consists of a series of reflections and meditations. Father McSorley described it as "a sort of miniature spiritual autobiography." Father Gillis died at the age of 80 on March 14, 1957. For more tban a quarter of a century, he wrote a column entitled "Sursum Corda" (Lift Up Your Hearts) which was distributed by the N.C.W.C. Feature Service to many Catholic newspapers. He was editor of the Catholic World magazine for 26 years.

Vatican Official Says Missions Are at Stake VATICAN CITY (NC)

Christian communities in mission fields may be taken

over by others .if there are not sufficient funds in the next few years, a Vatican official warns in this year's appeal for mission contributions. Archbishop Piero Sigismondi, Secretary of the Sacred Congregation for the Propagation of the Faith, said in his letter asking for contributions on Mission Sunday, Oct. 20: Combat Atheism "It is within the next few years that the future of many Christian communities in mission countries will be decided. If, for the lack of resources it should happen that missions will not succeed in carrying out their task, there is reason to fear that the fields will be taken over by others." The prelate appealed to all Catholics to lead a life of prayer and sacrifice to combat the influence of atheistic materialism in mission territories. He said: "Of this obstacle, which has joined with others to obstruct advance of the kingdom of God In the missions, we may truly say with the Gospels that it will be broken only by prayer and penance." Archbishop Sigismondi reminded Catholics that the missions oUer them the possibility of completing tl\eir Christian vocation. Christians are called upon to spread the Gospel throughout the world and missionaries are their delegates and representatives in this task. "It is they who make it poshible for you to meet the missionary engagement of your baptism," he said. . No Christian can, therefore, accept Jmy easy or empty and idle life when confronted by the thought of the sacrifices and sufferings endured by missionaries, he added . Better Understanding The Archbishop noted that modern technology is putting the furmidable progress of science at the service of industrialization in mission territories. "If there were not the Christian spirit compounded of justice and charity - to penetrate, purify and sanctify these new structures, a tenifying conflict bet wee n continents and races would be inevitable." In this sense, Archbishop Sigismondi concluded thfj.t - .,ission8 have greatly contributed to the development of better underI!tanding among men.

Soviet Russia's annoupcement last week that it had successfully fired an ICBM, or intercontinentl:\,l ballistic . missile, reminded me of the foreboding cover that has heralded for ten years the monthly Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, edited and pub­ --.----'--------­ lished by a gTOUp of Univer­ himself In an effort to jolt the sity of Chicago nuclear sci­ American people out of their ~mtists. The cover shows the lethargy over disarmament. Some ,9-to-12 quadrant of the face of a clock' and the hands, for 10 years now, have been pointing to two minutes to midnight. The So v let breakthl'ough In the missile race - and none of our government people have ex­ pressed skeptl­ cism to date ­ brings the world a step closer to midnight,' Secre­ tal'y of State DuJles and senator Jackson of Washington, among others; have pointed out that previous announcements by the Soviet Union on past nuclear achievements have 'always been rJupported by facts.

few have thought. he has over­ stated the urgency of disarma­ ment. that he has been' unduly alarmed over something that may never happen. But Father Conway's position In 1945 was unassallable. It Is unassailable today. 12 years later. Russia's announcement last week Is a gloomy confirmation of his prediction. His position has been that progressive disarmament by both Russia and the West Is vir­ tually impossible unless both sides can be guaranteed against a "surprise attack," Bqt the production and hidden deployments of guided mlsslles capable of traversing continents makes It Impossible for neutral "Inspection teams" to detect their Imminent use. Two Posslbillties Unless. then, a foolproof. dls­ armament plan can be estabIIshed before ICBM's come Into production. the world Is faced with two,possibilities: (1) A "surprise attack" or even a retallatoj'y attack by a jittery nation that mistakenly thinks It 18 being attacked. Igniting. in 01ther case. a hydrogen holocaullt. (2) A continuous gal'l'ison exist­ ence for both the Soviets and the West, In which the energies and resources _ both material and cultural-moral _ are pro­ sressively depleted to the point of exhaustion. It Is still not too late for a breakthrough on the disarma­ ment front. But there Is less time now than tllere was e. week ago. In this area. the luxury of indifference has about It a mor­ tal. "midnight" complexion that can no longer be shrugged off as an unpleasant phantom.

Hold Final Rites for Msgr. Knox LONDON (l'{C) - Britain's Prime Minister Harold Macm1l1an Qttended the Requiem Mass for Msgr. Ronald Knox, no'ted Eng­ llsh scholar and convert, In West­ minster cathedral here. He broke tradition by being the first British cabinet chief In modern times to attend a Catho­ lic service. The Prime Minister slipped into a place of honor beside the catafalque of his former tutor In English and history at Oxford University. "I have come to say goodbye to an old friend," he said as he was privately ushered into the eathedraJ from the Archbishop's· house next door. One of the best known Catho­ lics ·in the EngUsh - speaking student world, he was a brilliant ,

at Eton and Oxford. MagI'. Knox was the son of the' Anglican bishop of Manchester. Following ordination In the' Church of Eng­ land, he served as chaplain at 'Trlnlty College for 8m years until his com"erslon in 1917. Following ordination In the Cat h 0 11 c Church he returned to Oxford as III university chaplain. He left Oxford to devote his time to translating the Bible from Greek. Latin and Hebrew texts. a task which took nllle and a half years. Despite an operation last January for cancer of the liver, he recently delivered the Romanes lecture at Oxford, but he had to speak from a wheel chair with a physician In attend­ ance. This was his last public appearance.

Church to Keep lL@tirtllanguage ONEIDA (NC)-Latin sun In and will continue to be the "of­ flcial language" of the western Church, His' Ex~ellencY Arch­ bishop Amleto Giovanni 'Cicog­ nanl, Apostolic Delegate to tho United States declared here. "Every so often we hear it said that Latin is an archaic language and should be replaced by the vernacular in the liturg'y, espe­ cially in the administration of the Sacraments, in the recitation of the Breviary, and even, at least to a certain extent, in'the Mass," Archbishop Cicognani said, The Apostolic Delegate said that the Church "possesses treasures enshrined in the Latin language; and such treasures should convince us, priests and , ecclesiastics, that it is our duty to know and cultivate, as much al possible; the Latin'language,"


Today the Holy Father sends an appeal to ljelp the church attached to oDe of our seminaries-the Greek College In Rome. Almost In the shadow of st. Petel"s, the Church of St. Athanasiull was built In 1581. For a long time it has needed repairs and can wait no longer. We need $2,000. 'l'ben, we must replace the delapidated furnishings (ab'out $1,000), and Install new Icons (oriental Images) for the proper celebration of the Greek liturgy. These special Icons will cost $150 each. The seminary must always show the future priestD the high standards the Church desires to be rnalntahled In publlo worship.

Red Propaganda Au med to Offset Hungary· ~ssue WASHINGTON (NC)· With the adjournm~nt of. Congress watch for a shift ,in emphasis in ~ewspaper , headlines. Once again our, attention will · be called to a larger picture of the, world as it Is today. We will fi~d It is not a·hap·py one. When Congress Q'djoums or re· cesses there Is .usuallY anaccei­ eration of Soviet Union propa­ ganda'. The Reds apparently take advantage of the fact that our' legislators are 'out of town apd do not have the. U. S. Capitol as a powerful sounding board against which to answer Red at­ tacks and 'detractions.

Another Siege

Moscow's seizure of this hour to announce perfection of the "ultimate" missile weapon, its swaggering, even truculent, re­ jection of proposals lit the Lon­ don disarmament conference. its · arming of Syria, its revival of' · the question of Red China's ad­ 'mittance to the United Nations, -these are but some of the signs that we are in for another siege. The September 10 meeting of the General Assembly could well · put the United· Nations on the · spot.
