In China many of the older generations have been made in different to the tragedy. Bu the young between the ages of 9 and 25 are passionate disciples of the new barbarism. Each day throughout that country of 450, 000,000 people the young after they have had an indoctrination course of several months gather in a field or a hall where there hangs a picture of Mao-tse-tung or Stalin.

Mohammedans Outdo Catholics In Winninji African Converts ROME INC) There are twice as many converts to Mohammedanism among the Negroes of Africa as to Catholic ism, according to the International Fides Service, mission news agency here. “The Catholic Church jus gross of Catholicism in Black Af rica,” the agency declared. “But we must not fail to note that Islam is working with etjual activity.” The Fides Service said that latest figures showed that out of the 128,127,000 total population of Negro Africa, there are 12,829,000 Catholics and 28.127.INM) Mohamme dans or 9.9 and 21.7 per cent of the total population, respectively. It said Africa's total population— including whites- was 200.174,000. A comparison with previous iig ures, the agency stated, showed an over all population increase of 38 per cent in Africa over the past 20 years. On this basis, it said, e number of Mohammedans should have increased from 44, 000.000 in 1931 to 60.000.0(H) in 1951, while the number of Catho lies should have risen from 5,000, 000 to 6,900,000. “The actual figures," tha Fides Service reported, “are much high er: 80,000,000 Moslem* and 15,000, 000 Catholic*. The difference be tween the figure calculated on the basis of demographic increase and the actual numbtr of Moslems and Catholic* shew th* number of con versions. In th* case of Catholic* that figure is 8,100,000 and for Moslem* it is 19,200,000. Thus for Africa in general, there are twice a* many converts to Islam a* there ar* to Catholicism." The Fides Service said the pro gress of Catholicism in Negro Af rica was indicated by the increas ing number of ecclesiastical ter ritories, the growth of the native clergy, and the fervor of religious observance which, in some places, is taxing the missionaries “beyond their physical powers.” However, not only is Islam mat ching Catholic missionary efforts in Negro Africa, but it enjoys “a Disturbing Fact After a Catholic finishes formal schooling, his main source of regular instruction is the sermon at Sunday Mass. In many places this sermon must he limited to 15 minutes on about 40 Sun days a year. The one other important source for information on the Church is the Catholic press. Our people obviously need to read Catholic newspapers, magazines, pamphlets and books regularly. Our people need their Catholic press, also, as an antidote to the poisonous diet of por nography and secularism so freely dispensed at every newsstand.

Discussing reasons for Islamic progress, Die Fides Service noted that during the days of slavery, many Negroes professed Islamism to avoid biing enslaved across «he Sahara. It explained “Those that declared themselves Moslems could not be taken into slavery. Thus one can easily understand the choice of many It is this, perhaps, that explains the somewhat super ficial character of the Mohamme danism of a good number, their rather general ignorance of the precepts and of the dogmas of the religion.” Another factor in Islam's success, the Fides Service said, was the de cline of animism, which began with the arrival oi the Europeans. i Animism is a doctrine prevalent among primitive peoples which at tributes a living soul, not merely to human beings, but also to the lower animals and to inanimate ob jects and natural phenomena gen erally.) The mission new* agency said that Mohammedanism had exercis ed an “extraordinary fascination" over th* Negro at a time when the outside world had begun to invade his communities and to open a new social life for him. “Islam," it declared, “make* Its own propaganda by the simplicity of its doctrine and rhe moderation and discretion of Its demands with regard to paganism, and also by th* feeling that it gives to the new convert of belonging to one of th* great religions of the world and also of having mad* progress In tha social scale." “It is possible," the Fides Ser vice said, “to forsee*that Islam will continue to develop normally as it has done, particularly in the last few years It will even ac celerate its rhythm hy reason of its simple doctrine and its eas ier moral demands It can profit infinitely more than Catholicism in present conditions in Africa, among these being modern means of communication and travel.
