C. E. Gibbon, member of the Punjab legislative Assembly and Secretary of the Pakistan Joint Christian Board, has addressed a letter to the Prime Minister Kkaja Nazimuddin of Pakistan, outlining the Catholic community’s fears in this matter. Mr. Gibbon stressed the failure of the Moslem league, the principal political or ganization of Pakistan, to imple ment the assurances given to min orities by the late Mohammed Ali Jinnah. the father of the nation. To suggeit that the head of the Stele must be a Moslem, to the exclusion of all other cletses of citizens, is th* negetion of democ racy,* the Cetholic legislator charg ed in hit letter. Mr. Gibbon said he feared that thi* would give cause for grave misunderstanding* between Moslem* and non-Mo* lem*. Pakistan’ s mullahs (religious teacher*) meanwhile have demand en that under the country’s future constitution, the Supreme Court, assisted hy Board of Mullahs, should decide whether laws con flict with the Koran (Mohamnimed an scriptures).

Close tn 300 amendments to the reoort heve been introduced by members of the Constituent Assembly. The sharp criticisms of the report from all sections of the public has (•used the government to postpone consideration of it by the Consti tuent Assembly indefinitely. When the Prime Minister stated in the assembly that the report had hren “well received” in the coun ter he was greeted by loud laugh ter from the assemblymen.

Twice a week sermons were lowered, and twice a week con soling messages were hoisted to the Shepherd from his flock.

In discussing the Playmakers’ work, their moderator Father White pointed out that the group is not made up of stzge-struck youngsters He continued. “They ai members of an active group of young men and women between the ages of 18 and 28 who have a definite purpose. For them, the Playmakers is a special form of the Lay Apostalate. They see the need to counteract In a positive, creative way the 20th century spir it of secularism and indifference towards God in the field of enter tainment.” “Their purpose.” added Father White, is a part of the world wide effort to return all things to Christ.” The group's past performances include “Behold The Man”, The Alabaster Box.” “The Voice of Moses.” “Enter The Hero’ and the comedy “The Sausage Maker's In terlude.” In addition, the Playmakers have appeared numerous times on radio and television programs 14ist summer they presented a series of four telecasts on WBNS TV follow ing the theme “People Who Have Made Our History Holy.’ Last fall, thev presented a telecast play on WBN&TV on “The Life of John Bosco” in connection with national Y O Week Memorial Services Held For Students Executed By Nazis By G. R. Brunet (Radio, N.C.W.C. Newt Service) BONN. Germany—Catholic me morial services marked the tenth anniversary of the execution by the Hitler regime of three Catholic students who dared to call for re sistance to nazi tyranny The services were held on Feb ruary 22. coinciding with the ob servance of George Washington s birthday in the United States. The three students—all of the Munich University—attempted to organize a resistance movement called “The White Rose.” They died under the axe at Munich prison in 1943. The victims were Hans Scholl. 25. a medical student: his sister Sophie. 22. a biology student, and Christoph Prophst, 24, also a medical student. The Munich memorial services were attended by Auxiliary Bishop John Neuhaeusler of Munich. President Theodor Heuss of the W est German Republic sent a mes sage saying that the action of the Scholls and the other resistance fighters “was like an outcry of the German soul which will resound through history.” The rector of the West Berlin Free University said at the serv ices there that the Scholls had been prompted by conscience which for them was God’s voice. At the Berlin services the pres ident of the German students or ganization published a list naming 416 German university students and teachers who have been ar rested in the Soviet zone of Ger many since 1945. At least one pro fessor and seven students died in Soviet concentration camps, ac cording to the list. The north German youth group of the Christian Democratic party called the Scholls and Propst glor ious examples of an idealism in spired by purely Christian and Neo-Nazis In Austria Upset Al The Polls Independents Lose Seats Socialists Gain Catholic Premier Slated To Stay VIENNA (Radio, NC)—The big surprise in the Austrian elections was the defeat of the neo-nazi Un ion of Independents. Preelection predictions had esti mated that they would increase their strength by at least SO per cent. In feet, they lost two of their 16 seats in the balloting. The final results show that 85 per eent of the electorate rejected both communism and nazi pan Germanism. The anti-communist vote is significant because the country's hemmed in on three sides by communist regimes— Czechoslovakia. Hungary and Yu goslavia and a third of the coun try is still under Soviet occupa tion. The only gains over the previous election were made bv the Social ist Party which picked up six seats for a total of 73 in the new cham ber of deputies. Despite loss of three seats, the Christian-oriented Austrian People’s Party retains a slim plurality with 74 seats in the new chamber. The communists will have four seats in the new parliament, a loss of one the Union of Independents will have 14. The considerable Socialist gains are explained by their effective propaganda among youth and a dissatisfaction among liberals who had previously voted for the inde pendents. leading Cathobcs have express ed the hope that the People’s Party has learned a lesson from the elec tion and will increase its efforts to protect the interests of all class ea of the Catholic population. The election results do not fore shadow any notable changes in the present government.

It recalled that German youths in the Soviet zone today are under pressure and urged them to follow the examples of the Scholls. Three others involved in the “White Rose” conspiracy were ex ecuted on April 19, 1943. Among them was Professor Curt Huber, a teacher of the Scholls at the Mu nich University. -------------------o------------------- Church To Be Rebuilt HAMBURG, Germany —(NC) Ten years ago St. Joseph's Church here, one of the most beautiful baroque buildings of northern Ger many. was destroyed in an air raid.
