Main Street FA. 3163 by posed the policy of a uniform sys tem of education for youth and termed religious school educa tion “divisive.” The priest recalled that he lived for two years in Soviet Rus sia and witnessed the application of materialistic and atheistic com munist sociology. He reminded that Marxian communism now controls sortie 800,000,000 persons in Eu rope and Asia—a third of the hu man race. Educators Reckless He said the educators who re cently attacked private schools in this country were “reckless and lacking in historical perspective.” “These short-sighted moles.” he added, “would require all children to be enrolled in state schools where religion is excluded and sec ular subjects alone may be taught. “They would deprive parents. Catholic, Protestant and Jew, of their inalienable rights to safe guard the faith of their fathers by enrolling their offspring in com petent schools of the parents’ own choice,” he continued. “This un-American worship of the state and this narrow subjec tion of its citizens to the abritrary dictates of a state-defined absolute in education is precisely what Hit ler did in Germany as a prelude to his attempted world revolution through nazi totalitarianism. “They would have the American people imitate what Soviet Russia has so successfully done to the minds and souls of martyred Rus sian children and is now imposing on the satellite lands. “They would have you forget or repudiate the wise counsel of Thomas Jefferson on the relation betweefi an elected govern ment and the sovereignty of the people: ‘Tell your agent what he can do and what he cannot do then watch him’.” ----------------0--------------- Catholic Students Honored in Kenton KENTON—Joseph Dick, one of four Catholic graduates at Ken ton High school, was recently in ducted into the National Honor So ciety as the opening part of the annual award day program.

The economic and social rights of the human person as such are likewise his rights in his capacity and function as a member of a family, Mrs. Aliys D. Vergara, con sultant for the Catholic Interna tional for Social Service, told a meeting of the U N. Commission on Human Rights. Mrs. Vergara stressed particu larly the individual right to ade quate housing. This right, she said, “should be explicitly related to the right of the family, of whatever size, to housing adapted to the needs and functions of family life.” Shortage Is Global “This is necessary for both the physical and moral welfare of the family,” she went on, “and we feel the Commission’s explicit recogni tion of this fact is of immeasur able importance, especially in view of the problems which today are posed almost universally as suit of ing.” a U N. a .re hous the lack of adequate from Vergara cited figures preliminary report on the Mrs. world social situation which esti mates that 150,000.000 families in less developed areas need better housing. The housing deficit in in dustrially advanced countries is es timated at 30.000,000 family-dwell ing units. She further expressed the view that individual rights to adequate living and health standards “should also be interpreted as re lating to the family unit.” “We understand.” Mrs. Vergara concluded, “that the state in recog nizing these rights in no way as sumes the responsibilities of the family, but is rather making pro visions for the securing of such family rights as could not other wise be secured, thereby enabling the family to fulfill its responsi bilities as well as its function in the duties to society, and guaran teeing its security as the natural and best milieu for the normal, healthy and fruitful development of the individual.” -----------------o----------------- Groveport To Have First Communion, Confirmation GROVEPORT The Rev.
