Formosa Converts to the Faith have been 15 times more numerous in Formosa this year than they were five years ago. During the 12 months ending June 30, 1952, adult converts num bered 1,586 on this key island off China’s southeast coast. For the 12 months ending June 30, 1947, the total was 104. In 1947 there were only 17 priests on the island. Now there are 95. There were eight Sisters and no Broth'ers in Formosa then. Now there are 166 Sisters and six Brothers. Five years ago Formosa had a population of about six and a half millions. Since then, the Communists have overrun the Chi nese mainland and Formosa’s pop ulation has been swollen by an estimated 1,500,000 refugees. With the refugees came priests. Sisters and thousands of lay Cath olics. Many of the recent conver sions have been made among the mainlanders here. One missionary estimates that Chinese from the mainland make up nearly half of the present population of Formosa. The refugees include professors, students, writers and officials, as well as plain Chinese folk from towns and country villages. Life HONG KONG—(NC) Three Aus tralian airmen arrived here from Canton u'ith the first definite word in 16 months concerning commun ist-imprisoned Maryknoll Bishop Francis X. Ford, Brooklyn-born head of the Kaying Diocese in Kwantung province. The fliers, Ross S. Bohm, John F. Richmond and William M.. James reported they had been released from a Canton prison, where they occupied a cell across from one in which Bishop Ford was imprisoned. They said the Bishop appeared to be in “good health, well clothed, and receiving ade quate food.” Imprisoned for 20 months on charges of “trafficking in narcot ics” according to the communist sponsored newspaper, the fliers stated they had been ordered de ported after having been sentenced to two-year prison terms. Bishop Ford was placed under house arrest in December, 1950. In April of the following year, he and Maryknoll Sister |4arie Runyan, of the Kaying Diocese, a native of New York, were marched through the streets of Kaying and taken to to the Canton jail. No word had been heard of them since then un til the arrival of the Australian air men here. ———————o------------------ Offensive Film Banned By Action (If Catholic Schools SINGAPORE (NC)—Prompt, concerted action spearheaded by two big Catholic schools recently stopped an anticlerical film from being shown in Malaya.

Six priests and three Sisters teach in the National University (State-operated) here. Three of the priests are Jesuits from California. The Sisters are American Bene dictines. It is a peaceful, well-adminis tered territory. The abuses that marked the Nationalist administra tion here soon after the war are only a memory, though still a bit ter one, to many in Formosa. K.C. Wu, former mayor of Shanghai, always one of General issimo Chiang Kai-shek’s best of ficials, is now governor here. “If only the Nationalists had governed all China the way they’re now governing Formosa,” one for eign observer remarked. Formosa, however, only twice the area of Massachusetts, less than half the size of Ireland, pre sents much smaller problems than did the vast China mainland. Further Curbs Put On Polish Catholic Press Commies Ban Direct Sale* Of OutManding Weekly In Newest Restriction IX1NDON—(NC) The Polish Reds have struck a new blow at the Catholic press. The regime’s latest curh is di rected at Tygodmk Pnuy cchny, Cracow Catholic weekly and out standing Catholic paper in Poland. The Red government has banned the direct sale of the popular pa per at churches. News of the han was contained in a notice in the July 13 issue of the Cracow paper received here II said “On July 1. 1952, the parochial and church sales of the Tygndnik Powszechny has been stopped, also subscription orders received through the post offices. The paper calls the attention of those read ers who used to buy the paper in church vestibules, that they will be able to buy the paper only by or dering it personally from the state newspaper and periodical distribut ing agency RUCH”. Com [dele Lisi The new step is seen here as an attempt by the Red regime to get a complete list of the readers of the Catholic paper Formerly, Ca tholics and even communist offic ials could purchase the paper an onymously from the church racks The new hlow against the Cracow weekly comes on top of severe cen sorship and circulation restrictions long ago imposed on the few Ca tholi paners and magazines still permitted in Poland Under present censorship regula tions the censor can cut out sec tions of an article or storv. kill the entire article or even stop an entire issue Alleging a “paper shortage" the regime long ago limited the circu lation of Catholic publications io a certain maximum figure However, while the “paper shortage” pre vented the expansion of Catholic papers, it did not halt establish ment of new- communist publica tions and the tremendous expan sion of evisting ones ‘Giw/ Old Man' R*v.

(NC Photos) Babes Saved From Slaughter Called Expendable By Commies MANILA (NC) Nine chil dren spared from a veritable “slaughter of the innocents” or dered by communist Huk com manders have heen baptized here at the Red Cross barracks at Camp Murphy. The story began some months back when the entire Philippine nation was shocked and horrified on learning that Huk commanders had given orders to consider all Huk babies as "expendables” in order to facilitate retreat into mountain lairs. Disclosure of the orders came with the seizure of Huk propaganda leaflets, which read. “The attitude of the capitalists toward the extermination of ex pendables who may hinder the military operations of the HMB (Hukhong Mapagpalaya Ng Bayan —“The Liberation Army of the Nation”) reveals the softness and Chinese Commies Arrest Prefect, Newspaper Claims HONG KONG (NC)—Msgr. Do minic Desperben, French born Prefect Apostolic of Hainan Island, has heen arrested by the Chinese Reds, according to a re port in the Kung Shang Daily, anti-communist paper here. Church officials here have re ceived no confirmation of the re port. Monsignor Desperben, a 54 year old missionary of the Congregation of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary, has been stationed on Hainan Island, off China’s south coast, since 1926. A native of Begnios, Bearn, France, he was named Prefect Apostolic in 1939. Kung Shung stated that the communist military authorities have intensified their measures for the defense of Hainan against possible infiltration of anti com munist guerilla forces. It added “For this purpose, the com munists have for some time kept foreign missionaries and medical personnel in Hainan Island under police surveillance.” Monsignor Desperben has been assisted in his missionary work by five native priests and a dozen foreign missionaries.

Such lack of zeal and conviction will eventually spell the doom of the bourgeoise of the Philippines. “Great sacrifices must be made in order to win great victories. The infirm, the aged, and the chil dren—all are expendable because they can be replaced. With our system of free love, lost lives can always be recovered.” Filipino parents, Huks or not, have an all-consuming love for their children. Few could bring themselves to murder their own offspring. As a result, many Huk babies- soon to become known as Huklings—were wrapped in blank ets and left in the path of the on coming Filipino army, in the hope that other Filipinos would shelter and care for them. Among the Huklings rescued were the nine who, healthy and lively, received the Sacrament of Baptism here. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. Antonio Vera, army chaplain The Huklings. in immac ulate white dresses, were lined up in small chairs. The sponsors were either army officers or offi cers’ wives. Mrs. Luz Magsaysay, wife ol Secretary of National De fense Ramon Magsaysay, was the sponsor of a baby girl named af ter her. The other Huklings were named Santiago, Isabelo, Ciriaco, Fortunato, Virginia, Estela, Ro sario and Juanita. It was announced that some of the babies would be kept in Camp Murphy until adoption, and the others sent to the San Jose Hos pice in Manila. ———————O----■------------- Pope Honor** Army Man, Convert To The Faith TOKYO (NC) Lt.

BOOTHS The hatred of the Chinese Comm unists a a i nst the Blessed Moth er cannot be explained ex e by the Devil who is the invisible head of the Mystical Body of the anti Christ. A recent letter from Shanghai tells us that the Com munists believe that Mary is a clever woman hiding somewhere in China. “Who is this Mary?” the Communists asked at a re cent trial of Chinese members of the Legion of Mary. On an swering: “She is the Mother of Jesus.” The Communist judge answered. “No! She is some where in Shanghai where she is directing you we shall not rest until we lay a hand on her.” A Catholic girl, aged 9, was seized by the Communists in China and told to lead a proces sion of the other Catholic girls in the Missions to the latrine. There she was told to drop therein her medal of the Bless ed Mother. Upon refusing the Communists seized her father, brought both of them to the Communion rail of the Church where they were threatened with death. This failing, they took the girl to a public plat form. made her kneel and as she clutched the medal of the Blessed Mother in her hand, hundreds of pagan children were ordered by the Communists to file in procession before her to spit in her face. At Nanking, a child was caught with a prayer book con taining a picture of Our Lady. “Who is this” asked the Com munists. On being told that she is our Heavenly Mother, the Reds retorted: “This is nonsense. Mary is a revolutionary of Shanghai and she must be ar rested.” The Communists are God Love You-------------- Chinese Communists' Hatred Of Mary Inspired By Devil ----------------by Bishop Fulton J.
