Rome, March 16. Maurice Mae
terlinck, noted Belgian author, today
made a savage attack on the Vatican
for mahitalnlng- a neutral attitude in
the war. He declared that the Hold
See, in taking tlnsposition, has aban
doned the teachings of Jesus Christ
"I a msorry to say that the Vatican
has proved un-Christian," Baid the
Belgian. "It has not followed the
teachings of Jesus Christ.
"The vatican in this war has allied
itself with the rich oppressor Ger
many by holding aloof. It has not
stood by the oppressed, the suffering
and the poor. Its pro-German sym
pathies are bound to affect the
church in Belgium and Prance after
the war. I regret that the Yatican
has forgotten the teachings of Jesus
"Oh, can't you see the mouse?"
"Why, dear, I just can't see it-I
have on my old stockings.'
