"Do not succumb the trnmte'ion thus to discredit your profession. To the love of truth, which i the soul of scientific work, you must add a conscience which rejects any compromise, and which carefullv distinguishes statistical da*a and the conclusions deriving from them.

How ever, it presents temptations for abuse which must be care fully guarded against. So declared His Holiness Pope Pius Xll at an audience in his niH'i residence here to 8(H) delegates attending the 28th ses sion of the International Statis tics Insitute which opened in Rome. The delegates represented a score of countries. one of the most important objec tives of scientific research. “in our days.” he stated, “with out ceasing in the study of nature, we turn more toward the science of man, toward that which concerns human society. It is here that the science of statistics adds its con tribution. Thanks to its specialized methods and its incessant striving for perfection, it is able to face up to the most varied of social hap penings. discerning the elements that form them, and establishing their interrelated importance..” Add Eloquence “Statistics.” the Pope added, "brings also elements to the study of psychology. Notwithstanding the abstractness which surrounds fig ores, thev* can at times assume a rare eloquence. They render a sit uation tangible which otherwise might escape the best observer.” The Pope, who spoke in French, spoke also of the application of the science of statistics in the rapid evolution which is taking place in modern society. “Today.” he said, “one can see entire populations studying and calling for important improve ments in the conditions of their material lives. The organisms which are there to help them are in need of information which will guide the direction of the efforts being made.” The Holy Father concluded his Glenmary Sisters Begin Work In Missions Here Four Missionary Sisters, of the newly established Glen mary Order of Sisters, have begun work in the mission areas of the Columbus Diocese in southern Ohio.

Tito Refuted ROME (NC) The cam paign of bloody violence against priests and bishops in Yugo slavia doesn have the support of the local population, Father William Larkin, director of the Duluth Diocesan Charities, said on arrival here after a ten day tour in Yugoslavia. The priest's statement gave the lie to Tito's propaganda that recent attacks on the priests and bishops were spontaneous dem onstrations of anger by the local population. Larkin related that in largely Catholic areas violence and van dalism occur stealthily and at night for fear of reprisal by the people. He said that attacks he witnessed on Father Pavel Poi ze, rector of Dubrovnik Cathed ral, were the work of "goon squads", not local people. Larkin went to Yugoslavia as a member of a tour sponsored by a tourist agency in Germany. He wore lay clothes, but his passport carried his picture in clerical clothes. holic Times life More than 70 Catholic newspapers were represented at the two-day editors' seminar held at the N.C.W.C.

NC) French seminarians have been forbidden by the Sacred Congregation of Seminaries to take vacation jobs for training as priest-workers. His Eminence Giuseppe Cardinal Pizzardo. Prefect of that Congrega tion. said in a letter to the French hierarchy that the prohibition had been decided on only alter long deliberation. He praised the good will and in tentions of those who had thought such training necessary to bring seminarians close to the working masses. But, he added, several years ot experience had shown that vacation work does not attain that goal and is harmful to seminarians. The Cardinal directed French Bishops to revoke any permission already granted for such work. He mentioned employment in fac tories. ports, ships, hospitals “or elsewhere.” The Congregations new action recalls the warnings issued last week by Jules Cardinal Salcige, Archbishop of Toulouse, and Msgr. Giovanni Mont ini. Vatican Pro-Sec retary of State, on the subject ol priest-workers.
