Yugoslav Rule As Iron-Fisted
As Soviets, Says U. S. Priest
Father Koncius Finds Severe Religious Persecution
Counsels No Aid To Tito Without Guarantees
MUNCH An American priest,
just returned from Yugoslavia
where he visited Archbishop Aloy
sius Stepinac, found that country’s
regime as communistic as any So
The Rev. Joseph B. Koncius of
Yonkers. N. Y., president of the
United Lithuanian Relief Fund of
America, wonders why the United
States government is giving aid to
the Tito regime without demanding
a guaranty of human rights, irfclud
ing freedom of religion.
Prelate .4 Prisoner
Archbishop Stepinac told Father
Koncius that, confined to his na
tive village of Krasic. he has hardly
any more freedom than he had in
“It is true, I can say Mass and
preach in church, but I was able
to say Mass in the state prison,
too,” Father Koncius quoted the
Archbishop as saying.
Father Koncius described the at
tempts of the Belgrade regime to
tax the churches out of existence.
“Last year,” he said, “the parish
church at Krasic was assessed a tax
of 20.000 dinari (about $70 at the
official rate of exchange). This
year, the assessment amounts to
280,000 dinari (more than $900),
a sum which that poor parish ob
viously cannot raise. Nobody knows
what is going to happen to the par
ish priest and his church.”
All churches, Catholic as well as
others, are forced to hand over be
tween 40 and 70 per cent of their
collections to the government, Fa
ther Koncius said.
Other observations related by
Father Koncius are:
(1) Religious instruction to chil
dren is only allowed in church
during Mass. Any priest who

teaches religion to children pri

(2) The number of students in
the three still existing seminaries
is rapidly decreasing. A couple,
both of them school teachers, were
ordered by the government to with
draw their two sons fxom the sem
inary or be dismissed from their
teaching jobs. When the parents
complied, they were forbidden to
go to church. When they refused,
both lost their positions.
(3) Government officials attend
ing religious services are immedi
ately suspected and many of them
have been dismissed.
(4) The arrests of priests and
laity, suspected of hostility to the
regime, continue in great numbers.
Many seek to escape from totali
tarian rule to Austria, Italy or Ger
(5) While personally unmolested
in his travels through Yugoslavia,
Father Koncius found it practically
impossible to visit certain priests
or families. People in general are
afraid of coming into contact with
foreigners, lest they be accused of
“spying” for a foreign country.
(6) The village of Krasic is un
der 24-hour police watch. Those
desiring to see Archbishop Step
inac must present their identifica
tion cards to the police posts. Fa

in an American embassy car ac
companied by an American consu
lar official, was not himself mo

average price of a suit is about

When a governmental official in
Belgrade described to him the des
perate shortage of linen and other
medical supplies in Yugoslav hos

to him that American voluntary

by the Yugoslav government to dis
tribute such supplies freely to

U. S. Losing
In Cold War,
MANCHESTER, N. H. (NC)—
“Communism has won its victories
in the United States, not in the
countries it has conquered,” Louis
F. Budenz asserted in an address
before St. Anselm College alumni.
Mr. Budenz, former editor of the
Communist Daily Worker and now
a Fordham University teacher, em
phasized four points:
1. Communism has taken anoth
er 200,000,000 persons since 1945,
in addition to the 600,000,000 it
already controlled. United States
policy has been responsible for its
success in enslaving these peoples
over a seven-year period.
2. Americans should provide
more protection for ex-communists
who testify for the government in
exposing and prosecuting commun
Attacks Racial Bias
3. Combating communism should
mean reading extensively “to learn
the character of the foe with which
we are engaged” revivifying citi
zenship preserving the right of
free organization by free labor
fighting discrimination against the
Negro which is now being extend
ed to include Mexican and Filipino
Americans participating in a cru
sade of prayer and penance to ob
tain the blessing and assistance of
God for victory over communism
and moral rejuvenation through
4. The greatest danger in Amer
ica today is from communists hid
ing in colleges, schools and the
press in books, magazines, news’
papers, radio and television.
“Poland was bclrayed in Wash
ington through the counsels o( Al
ger Hiss, Harry Hopkins and oth
ers ot their ilk,” Mr. Budenz told
the alumni. “China was lost in
Washington through the counsels
of Owen Lattimore, the so-called
Far East expert, and a host of oth
ers in the government who went
along with his thinking.
“The United States has not be
