covera of the books. Regardless of
what is inside, the covers, he said,
depicted scenes that, in real life,
would be 'broken up” by any po
liceman.
Th* police chief is being sued
for $3,500 and the city of Youngs
town for $50,000 as a result of an
attempt to keep tha newsstands
clear of pocket books that were
listed as unsuitable. The cleanup
move was the result of complaints
from parents that started in 1948.
A distributor who had promised
to cooperate wuth the move re
quested a list of the unwanted
books and passed the list on to the
publishers. The publishers took
legal action claiming damages
through loss of sales and libel be
cause of an impression created
among the public that many pocket
size books are obscene.
Current court action is to get an
injunction stopping the city from
keeping the listed books off its
stands until the trial of the com
pany’s suits reaches court.

Red Jailed Priest
Heard From After
Two Year Silence
HONG KONG (Radio, NC)
The first news in almost two years
has been received from an Amen
can priest imprisoned in the Chin
ese communist capital. He is Fa
ther Harold Rigney, a 53-year-old
Divine Word priest from Chicago.
Thrown into jail during a wave
of arrests in Peking in July, 1951,
Father Rigney has been held in
communicado ever since. Some of
his confreres had presumed him
dead.
This first news that the Ameri
can priest is still alive came in a
simple note written to a Chinese
nun in Peking asking her for food
and clothing. The note was dated
June 4. The nun is satisfied that
the signature is that of Father Rig
ney.
Before the communists seized
power Father Rigney served as rec
tor of the now suppressed Catholic
University of Peking. After the
Reds took over Peking, Father Rig
ney, a former U.S. Army chaplain,
stepped down from his post and
was succeeded by a Chinese priest,
Father Peter Sun, S.V.D. The
Chinese regime first seized control
of the university and later sup
pressed it.
Father Rigney was among a
group of 14 foreign and Chinese
priests arrested in Peking on the
night of July 25, 1951. Father Sun
was seized the same night.
More Expelled
Meanwhile three more foreign
missionaries have arrived here
from the China mainland. Two
were expelled, the third forced to
“request” his exit visa.

Argument Made by
Family Planners
CINCINNATI (NC) A Plan
ned Parenthood Federation state
ment that “nine out of 10 doctors
endorse contraception” drew a flat
denial from Dr. Edward J. McCor
mick, president of the American
Medical Association.
The prominent Toledo Catholic
surgeon who was elected head of
the AMA earlier this month declar
ed: “I am certain that this state
ment cannot be documented.”
The statement to which he refer
red was issued by Mrs. Robert M.
Ferguson, president of the Planned
Parenthood Federation, and Mrs.
Philip Bastede, chairman of the
New York Committee of Mothers
Health Centers, who commented on
the recent withdrawal of Catholic
social agencies from the New York
City Welfare and Health Council
after the council had voted to ad
mit the Planned Parenthood Com
mittee of Mothers Health Centers.
Dr. McCormick indicated that in
addition to the nation’s Catholic
physicians, “there -are many doc
tors who are Episcopalians or who
belong to other denominations who
do not endorse any type of contra
ception.”
“In the many Catholic hospitals
in the United States,” he went on,
“there are many excellent Protest
ant doctors who I am sure endorse
the same moral code which I en
dorse as a Catholic.”

Indian Catholics Lose Land
They Developed From Waste
By E. J. Antony the Madras government itself.
(Correspondent, N.C.W.C. News
Service)
WYNAAD, Madras, India—Thou
sands of Catholic peasants and
their families in the vast uplands
of Wynaad face the threat of forc
ed eviction from lands they made
productive.
The Madras Stale government,
in a new amendment written into
its revenue rules, has dubbed the
Christian peasants, mostly Catho
lics, as unauthorized encroacbers
upon government land and has or
dered their summary eviction.
Over 200 families have been evict
ed by armed police. More evic
tions are expected soon.
Most of the present settlers in
Wynaad are Christian peasants
who migrated from Travancore
some years ago following the harsh
land dispossession laws prevailing
there under the deuanship of Sir
C. P. Ramaswamy Iyer. They set
tled in the thousands of acres of
hilly tract by virtue of an old
Madras rule which laid down the
payment of a nominal rent to the
government as the only condition
attached to occupation of waste
land.
These pioneer* set to work with
will end wrung out of the m»
lariel wilderness, at the cost of un
remitting back-breaking toil under
impossible conditions, a permanent
source of livelihood. Th* waste
lands slowly became productive.
The
were soon replaced by happy
homesteads. Tha peasant* and
their families sterted to prosper.
What was once the abode of count
less wild animals became a pros
perous colony of peasent* with a
number of Catholic churches end
chapel*. All this happened after
1948.
original makeshift shock*
It appears that the Madras gov
ernment became interested in the
situation after the lands became
productive. The Christian peasants,
uprooted from their lands and un
able to return to their original
homes, face complete destitution.

RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil—(NC)
Close to a million people took part

the year-long, country-wide pil

A colorful procession, a display
of fireworks and a huge gathering
of 200,000 people at the Municipal
Stadium preceded the permanent

Hungarian Reds
Plan Infiltration
Of Seminaries
VIENNA (NC) The Hun
garian communist regime has es
tablished two indoctrination cen
ters to train youths to become fu
ture pro-communist priests, accord
ing to reports reaching here.
The two centers are located in
monasteries confiscated by the re
gime. One is in the former Bene
dictine monastery at Esztergom
and the other at the former mon
astery of the Piarist Fathers at
Nagykanizsa.
Promising young communist stu
dents are encouraged to enter the
training centers and promised that
they will later be given an oppor
tunity to infiltrate the Catholic
seminaries, the reports state. The
courses at the indoctrination cen
ters are given by pro-communist
priests and are aimed at teaching
the students how Christian doc
trine can be twisted to suit com
munist purposes.
Reportedly it is the hope of the
communists that after enough of
these students have infiltrated the
priesthood the Hungarian people
can be alienated from their deep
religious convictions.

WASHINGTON, D. C. (NC—
Catholic men in the U.S were
praised for their work in favor of
legislation that will keep salacious
pictures and books out of the U.S.
mails, at House subcommittee hear
ings here.
Testifying on behalf of the Na
tional Council of Catholic Men
which represents about seven mil

Organization for Decent Litera
ture which is attempting a news
stand cleanup throughout the na
tion, Martin W. Work, executive
secretary of NCCM, spoke in favor
of House Ruling 569 which would
allow the Post Office Department
to impound mail pending trial of
distributors of obscene literature.
At the Mme time. Mr. Work
and the Men’s Council were prais

contributions” to the Congression
