Hearn, Columbus diocese priest, has taken over a new assignment as First Army Chaplain, it was announced here at First Army Headquarters. He succeeds Msgr. (Col.) Edward R. Martin, retired, who was honor ed, on leaving the service, by a parade ot some 600 troops and the presentation of a Certificate of Achievement at First Army Head quarters, Goveinors Island. A resident of YonkerS. N. Y., Monsignor Martin was ordained in 1921 and commissioned in the Regular Army in 1925. He served at various posts in the U. S., Hawaii and the Philippines and during World War 11 was Divi sion Chaplain of the 1st Armored Division, serving in Ireland and in the North African campaigns. Father Hearn, a native of Rox bury, Mass., was ordained in 1930. He entered the Army in 1941 and served in New Guinea and the Philippines in World War II. He went to Korea in July, 1950 and served there eight months. This observation was made here by Dr. Robert P. Odenwald, direc tor of the Catholic University of America’s child center and author ity on psychiatry. He based his comment on an article which ap peared last month in 1’Osservatore Roinano, Vatican City daily, deal ing with a discourse by the Pope and an explanation of the "authori tative norms'* for the use of psychoanalytic methods set by him. Ethics and Morality The article, Dr. Odenwald point ed out. explained that all systems have certain common principles, methods and experiments which are in no way contrary to natural ethics and Christian morality. “However, the Pope definitely disapproved of the so-called pan sexual method in the “transgres sion of ethical limits,’ Dr. Oden wald said. “Without naming names it is evident that the Pope means Freud's theory of pan-sexualism. It is this theory that separates Catholics from Freud and his fol lowers, where Freudian analysts define man as a sexual animal, meaning that the most essential driving force of human nature is sex. Freud viewed his thesis that man is just a sexual animal as a major discovery. Freud did not of fer the proof of his theory of pan sexualism.” Dr. Odenwald a k n o wledged that there is no question “sex plays an important part in life,” but he stressed that sex “is not the only, and not even the main driv ing force in men.” Th* Pope’s Norm* “In conclusion, the article urg ed Catholic doctors to keep the Pope’s norms in mind and to use good judgment and right conscienc- Catherine At Ohio Pen Destroyed By Fire The Catholic Times Columbus 16, Ohio, Friday, Novombor 7, 1952 with the riot and fire were Walter G.

The Vatican is accused of “openly taking part in the anti Yugoslav campaign.” The charge d'affaires of the Papal Internunciature in Belgrade, Msgr.

For more complicated cases a doctor can ‘consult competent writers on ethics who are approved by the Church and are recognized as be ing sound in doctrine.’ On the oth er hand, ‘the priest, too, who is faced with difficult cases of seri ous neurosis can consult a compe tent and conscientious doctor or direct his client to a medical spe cialist in whom he has full confi dence,’ the article said. “Here the Pope stresses the close cooperation and relationship be tween priest and psychiatrist, or between priest and the physician in general. “It may be correctly said in the end that the Pope approves of psychoanalysis in general with the exception of using the pan-sexual theory of Freud, to which many analysts adhere. With regard to the relationship between priest and psychiatrist, it may be paraphrased in the following sentence: ‘Render to priests the things that are priests’ and to psychiatrists, the things which are psychiatrists’.” a place of particular interest during the Christmas season because of the unusual decora tions of the Sanctuary and Crib arranged and executed by the prisoners. (Photo, courtesy Columbus Dispatch) Tito Steps Lp His War To Shackle The Church GRAZ, Austrian (NC) In the never-ceasing war against the Church and religion. Yugoslavia’s communist-controlled press and ra dio are at present concentrating their fire on the Bishops, the Vat ican and its diplomatic representa tive in Belgrade. pose of creating a rift between the “higher” and the “lower” clergy. As in all communist-controlled countries, members of such organ izations are styled “patriotic” priests and are often rewarded with some material favors. There is a strong suspicion that the deeper motive in organizing such groups is that of paving the way for the establishment of a “national” church—that is a church complete ly separated from Rome and en tirely subject to the regime in pow er. The tactics of the Yugoslav Tito regime are strikingly similar to those of Moscow-controlled com munist governments from China to Poland, where attempts are under way to make captives of the “low er clergy” and to eliminate the hierarchy through murder, impris onment and expulsion. Whet's Next? Developments Yugoslavia in dicate that the present vicious campaign against the Bishops and the Vatican foreshadows even more drastic action. Phrases used in a recent Zagreb broadcast are omi nously reminscent of similar utter ances heard in Czechoslovakia and Rumania where the very same "ar guments” were employed to "justi fy” the arrests of Bishops and the expulsions of Vatican representa tives. The Catholic people of Yugo slavia have no means of taking an open stand against such maneu vers. But there are many indica tions that they are not deceived by them and that they remain un shaken in their traditional loyalty to the Bishops and to Rome. They still remember what happened trt their country's Primate. Archbfsh op Aloysius Stepinac, Bishop Peter Cule and hundreds of priests and Religious. Archbishop Stepinac was unable to attend the Bishops’ meeting in his See City of Zagreb. In viola tion of most elementary rights, he is prevented from exercising his episcopal functions and remains confined to his native village of Krasik. Now and then thf Archbishop is permitted to receive visitors from the outside world. They bring back word that his courage remains un shaken in the face of communist persecution. Somehow, the people of Yugoslavia get to know that their Archbishop has not been cowed. And this knowledge strengthens them in their determi nation not to yield to the threats and blandishments of their com munist masters. The Votes Have Been Counted This is America! We have just completed a free election, by a free people. We have chosen the President who will head the na tion during the next four years beginning next January 20. If this were a country under the Iron Thumb, the los ing candidate and his supporters would have been “liqui dated” by this time. That is, unless they had been lucky enough to get across the border ahead of the winner’s hatchetmen. Fortunately for them—and for us that is not the American way. Harsh words spoken in the, heat of the campaign already have been erased. Real Statesmen have never been “soreheads”—win or lose. And all of them are now working together to pro mote the interests of our country. It’s time for the rest of us, regardless of party affili ations, to pull together towards peace and prosperity as Americans under God. Solid Catholic Vote Proved To Be Mvth Nation-Wide Poll Refutes Ancient Falsehood That Clergy Dictates Action HUNTINGTON, Ind. (NC) A nation-wide presidential election poll conducted by Our Sunday Visitor, national Catholic weekly published here, proved “our con tention- There is no solid Catholic vote,”’ although politically the poll results may be erroneous, the paper announced. Ballots came from every State, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico. Alaska, and the Cana) Zone, the paper disclosed. A tabulation up to Oct. 22 showed that a total of 10.576 OSV readers had sent in ballots. “This number,” the paper notes “represents more than three times as many persons as are usually polled to determine a national trend.” Of the 10,576 ballots, the paper said. 6.544 or 62 percent were cast tor Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, \*hile 4.022 or 38 percent, were marked in favor of Gov. Adlai Stevenson. “Canards die hard,” Our Sunday Visitor notes. "The charge that Catholics vote unitedly and at the dictation of the Hierachy’ has been made during the present campaign by editors of many sec- tanan periodicals. Reference to the Catholic vote* has also been made in the daily press and in important news and business weeklies. Our contention is that the Church and its leaders do not take a partisan part in politics. The simple truth is that Catholics are urged to vote, to be well informed and active United States citizens but to vote as their consciences dictate.” -------------o------------------ NFCCS Meet Slated Nov. 15 100 Expeeted Approximately 100 delegates are expected to attend the annual workshop of the National Federa tion of Catholic College Students in the Ohio Kentucky region to be held Nov. 15 in the Deshler Wai lick Hotel, Columbus.
