The proportion of major sem inarians to Catholics in Africa, ac cording to Fides, is one to every 10,000 This compares favorably to 1952 statistics released by J. Kenedv and Sons, showing the same proportion of minor and major seminarians to Catholics in the United States. Minor seminarians are students taking high school and prepara tory college training. Major sem inarians are students of philosophy and theology. Fides breaks down the location of the major seminarians, as foll ows 64. nearly all of the Coptic Rite, in Egypt, Eritrea and Etho pia 86 in Algeria and Tunis under the auspices of the Sacred Con sistorial Congregation 101 in An gola and Mozambique, Portuguese Africa, and 1,243 in the rest of Africa under the auspices of the Sacred Congregation for the Pro pagation of the Faith. In addition, there are ahonf 150 African students attending major seminaries in other parts of the world, Eides says.

The only people who can take this world lightly are those who be lieve in the next world. If this world is all. then it must be taken very seriously, like a child with one toy, who cannot play too much with it for fear of los ing it. An evidence of the Com munist want of humor is found in the Commisar of Shanghai who told Bishop Kung that he would be held responsible for any mir acles worked through the inter cession of Father Chang, a mar tyred priest Secondly, there is no kindness or mercy One of the orphanages in the foreign missions of China start ed by a nun picking up a child that had been thrown into the alley as dead, and then reviving it at the convent. Unwanted chil dren were brought in numbers. The Church had 180 orphanages in the 147 dioceses of China car ing for over 20,000 orphans when the Communists took over. I-ast March the Communists had rh.sed 75% of these orphanages, principally in charges that the Sisters murdered the children The Communists charged that in Canton 216R deaths we-e inflicted on the total of 2,126 children re reived in the orphanage There were more deaths than orphans.
