The recommendations of the
Basic Principles Committee, which
have drawn sharp rebuke from the
250.000 Catholics of Pakistan, in
clude the debarring of any one
but a Moslem from becoming the
head of State and a provision for
the establishment of boards of per
son* “well versed in Islamic laws”
to sit in judgment on the acts of
the Federal Parliament and of the
State legislative Assemblies.
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*
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). They have further
demanded that all existing laws
should be amended within
years so as to conform with
himmedan religious dictates
that any matter considered hy
islators to be militating afcainst
religious dogma should be refer
red to them for decision.
Meanwhile protests against the
Be*ic Principles Report heve also
come from Moslems. 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

These letters began with these

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

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
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
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. Chancellor
I^opold Figi, a Catholic who has
headed the Austrian government
since 1945. is slated to remain at
the helm of a coalition People's

moral considerations.
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.
