Vietnam Commies Get Orders To Lure Catholics Into Fold HANOI. Vietnam. (NO Vie tnamese communists have received instructions to work harder in luring Catholics to the Vietminh side. They have been told how to do it “with a spirit of patience and careful attention to detail.” In a party publication a writer, si cm ng himself “N.D.,” analyzed reasons why Vietnamese Catholics have stayed aloof from “our cause” and promised “fine results” if the tactics he outlined were used. Illustrating the failure to gain Catholic support, he pointed to one region where “since April, 1950, more than 2,000 Catholic® have left, to take refuge in the enemy zone. A small number of Catholics have sold themselves to the enemy, while others remain in different or on the fence.” Stating that “action on the mas »es is the keystone of our (organi zing) work.” the writer outlined the following program to win Ca tholics: “Our activity must be applied on the economic viewpoint, n order to become political, little b) little. That is. we must begin in irking on the Catholic masses helping them to improve their standard of life. We must arouse UNITED REFRIGERATOR SERVICE 581 W. Town St. MA. 4231 Frigidaire and Tyler Refrigeration Equipment Sales and Service «. WiM. Proa. Since 1890 Walter C. Kropp Pres in them the idea of demanding lower rents on their farms and lower interest rates.” Meanwhile, he added, the com rades must make special efforts to lead “progressive Catholics” down the Red garden path. “At the same time, we must work on a certain number of re latively progressive Catholics, without demanding a high degree of re-education of them.” That means, the communists won’t make the tactical blunder of insisting that Cathloics become Marxists at once. “Thus," he continued, “they can go, by little and little ... We should direct these advanced Christians with tact and give them means to take action. If possible, we shall help them to launch news papers as ‘Catholics of the Resi stance.’ “The (party) cadres will give the Christians the explanations necessary to calm all their anxie ties concerning (vietminh) govern ment policy, above all in matter concerning churches and the be lievers.” Behind all this tactful mani pulation, the non fist of real com munism is shown, however. Churches are to be left open. But activities that do not have a strictly religious purpose, for in stance. works of charity, must be abolished. Communist lessons must be given in the schools. Those who oppose negatively, that is. “by not paying contri butions or by not allowing the new (i. e. communist) programs of in struction in Catholic schools" must be brought before the communist chiefs “to be enlightened or warn ed.” To those who oppose actively, said the writer, “let us show our selves merciless.” Be Loyal To Our Advertisers Your Family Deserves th.

A 24-year-old Columbus youth, a brother in the Society of Jesus, will sail from New York Aug. 15 for mission service in India Packing his suitcase for the long trip is Brothei Aloysius J. Nehr. son of Mrs. Albert Lines of 302’ E. Mam St. He is the second Jesuit from Columbus to be assigned to the Patna Mission District. The brother will sail from New York to Naples, stay in the Italian port for about three weeks and then board an Italian liner for Bombay. He'll arrive in India sometime in October and begin study of the Hindi language at Gomoh. Iolunleered For Service IBs eventual assignment there, and he doesn't know as yet what it will be, will fulfill a desire he has had for four years to serve in the missions. He volunteered for the humble work three years ago because he “wanted to be more generous in serving God.” The lay brother must do quite a lot of traveling, however, even before he embarks for the Orient. He was at home last week, the second visit here since he entered the Scared Heart Novitiate in Mil ford in July 12. 1946. From Milford, he is scheduled to go to the Jesuit Scholasticate at West Baden. Ind., where he will study Hindi for about two weeks. He'll then go to the Jesuit Mission headquarter® in Chicago for a going away ceremony Aug. 10. In going to Patna, Brother Nehr will work in a thickly populated district where there are 26,881) Catholics. According to the Cath olic Mission Directory of 1950, the area has 10 native brothers and nine missionary brothers, 29 native priests and 02 missionary priests, included in this number is the Rev. Daniel Rice, S. a native of Columbus. Brother Nehr is a former mem ber of Holy Cross parish here.

But the prospect of not return ing to the United States is over shadowed by his willingness and determination to serve. Christ abroad. “I'm anxious to get started,” Brother Nehr smiled. How much do you suppose the Catholics of America contribut ed last year per head to the Holy Father for the spree of the faith through the 614 missionary areas of the world? Would your guess be that they contributed more in a year than people het at a horse race? Well! In the four track® of New York State last year 4.000,000 people bet $78 per head. Would our sacri fices equal that or would it be more?

Md. (NO How a young gob served the first Mass he ever attended is recounted by the Navy’® senior Catholic chaplain on active duty in an article accept ed by the United States Naval In stitute Proceedings here. The Rev. (Capt.) Vincent J. Gor ski, now 8th Naval District chaplain at New Orleans, was vesting for Mass back before World War II, on board the submarine tender Holland in San Diego harbor, \Ujen he noticed there was no seTOr. He turned to Big Jim Maher, sailor coach of the ship's boxers, and asked him to get some one to serve. Father Gorski noticed that the hands of the young sailor who came up were trembling a bit, and the priest asked if he kdew the Latin for serving. The sailor shook his head. Rather than embarrass him by sending him back, the chap lain said he’d help the gob along by whispering what to do during the Mass. Things went along fine. After Mass the gob told the chaplain he was stationed on the cruiser Northampton, and was wait ing to go ashore on liberty when the church boat came by. “Come on down—we have room for you,” those in the boat said, and he came along. The gob hadn’t volunteered to serve the Mas®. Big Jim Maher had merely turned to the blue jacket on his left and said: “You go up there and serve the Father.” He wasn’t even a Catholic! -------------------o-------- CCD, NCWC Send Priests On Reich Teaching Mission FRANKFURT, Germany—(NC— Msgr.

(NO More than 700 North Korean prisoners of-war attended a Mass offered in their compound of Koje island by a U.S. Army chaplain. The Rev. (Lt.) Emmett P. O’Neill reported the incident in a letter to the Rev. James R. White, editor of the Western Montana Edition of the Register here. A Mass offered by Father O’Neill was the first opportunity for the prisoners to attend religious serv ices since the prison riots broke out on Koje. Before the break up of the big compounds into smaller units, and separation of die-hard communists from other prisoners, it was impossible to reach Chris tian® in many of the compound®. An army officer told the prison ers that a priest was coming to say Mass in their midst, and that all who wanted to could attend. There would be no compulsion. Father O'Neill expected a few dozen at most and arranged to use one of their huts. To his surprise about 700 showed up. and he was forced to say Mass out-of-doors. “They made a very devout audi ence even though only a few were Catholics,” Father O’Neill wrote. “They expressed the desire to have me return.” At the request of a Korean Bene dictine priest on the island, who was a refugee from the north. Fa ther O'Neill also offered Mass in a Korean village about 40 miles from his camp. Much to his sur prise, he had a congregation of about 200 and more than 70 receiv ed Communion. No Catholic Chaplains When the priest-chaplain arriv ed on Koje he found there were no Catholic chaplains assigned to troops permanently stationed there. Ministering to the men were three missionary priests who were taking care of Catholic prisoners of-war. When the anti-communist prisoners were moved, the mission aries went with them. This left Fa ther O'Neill the only American priest on the island. Father O Neill praised the faith of the Korean civilians, including particularly the many refugees. And he spoke highly of the mis sionaries who are still free to car ry on. They must travel long dis tances and serve huge numbers. “It takes real courage and zeal, and these men have it,” he com mented. Father O’Neill is from the He lena.

Christian Trade Unions Affirm Need For Reform Of Business THE HAGUE (NC) The In ternational Federation of Christian Trade Unions has appealed to employer organizations not to op pose needed social and economic reforms and to help in building up a human society “based upon justice and Christian charity and not upon capitalist exploitation.” The appeal was contained in the resolutions passed by the dele gates to the 11th annual congress of the Federation. Fourteen coun tries were represented. At the con clusion of the congress, J. P. S. Serrarens stepped down from his post as general secretary of the Federation, which he has held for 32 years. He was succeeded by Auguste van Istendael, a 35- year old Belgian. The question of co-determi nation, that is the participation of labor in the management of in dustrial enterprises, was one of the main topics studied at, the con gress. The resolutions adopted urged organizations affiliated with the Federation to study closely the experiments now under way in various countries, particularly Germany, in this field of economic reform. Christian trade unionists should make every effort to use all means at hand, even if they are insufficient, toward assuring workers a share in the manage ment of industries, professions and in the general economic structure. In doing this, it should be made clear to workers that these are steps toward the final aim: “the full participation of labor in economic and social decisions in all spheres, and especially that of industry." The delegates condemned any eonomic system based solely upon the profit motive as well as any wholly collectivized system lead ing to a totalitarian state. They af firmed the “need of a profound reform of modern enterprise" in such a way that it is no longer, “as in liberal capitalism subjected to the primacy of money, nor. on the other hand, becomes a simple wheel in an economy entirely planned by the state.” BROSMER’S Summit St naar Hudson Our Home-mad.
