American Bishop
Reaches Freedom

HONG KONG—(Radio. NC)—An
American Bishop arrived here thin
and weak after his expulsion from
Red China. Bishop Rembert Kowal
ski of Wuchang, a 68-year-old
Franciscan from Calumet. Mich..
was ousted after spending almost
two and a half years in solitary
His formal expulsion came aft
er a public ’‘trial” Aug. 22 in which
he was charged with the death of
40.000 orphans and with promot
ing the Legion of Mary, called a
’’counter revolutionary, reaction
ary agency.”
During his solitary confinement
the Bi*hop was not given any read
ing material, nor was he permitted
to pray. Most of the time he was
forced to sit on the floor with
his legs painfully crossed like a
statue of the Buddha.
The news blackout during his
imprisonment was so complete that
the Bishop did not know who had
won last November’s U.S. presi
dential election.

of morality.”

Pope Scores
Harsh Frontier
Freer movement of peoples and
goods across international fron
tiers has been urged in a Vatican
message to the annual Italian So
cial Week.
The Social Week is being held
this year in Palermo on the topic.
Population Problems in the light
of Church Teaching. The Holy
See's message was sent by Msgr.
Giovanni B. Montini, Vatican Pro
Secretary of State, on behalf of Hi*
Holiness Pope Pius XII.
The letter cited the Holy Fath
er's Encyclical. Serum l^aetitiac.
in which he declared that the
“good* created by God for all men
should reach all in accordance
with the principles of justice and
charity.” It also quoted from hi*
address of Pentecost. 1941. in
which he said that all men have
a right to material goods and that
rich a .tions have a duty to aid
poorer nations.
All this, the letter stated, calls
for effective cooperation among
nations towards removing artificial
barriers and permitting the order
ed movement of people, capital and
material goods.
The message emphasized that
population problems are not mere
ly economic, but moral and relig
ious as well It condemned the use
of birth control in attempting to
solve them.

Priests at the village attribute

The organization of the credit

was discussed with a representa

League who provided parish mem
hers with a picture of the func
tion of a credit union in a parish
and the benefits that may be ob

The function of the credit union
is to provide low cost credit to
members on loans for any worth
while purpose. Some of the most
frequent loan requests arc made to
pay old bills, medical bills, funeral
expenses, home repairs and wed
ding expenses.
The financial soundness of the
credit union is assured by incor

laws, by a supervisory committee
which periodically in*pects the
books and by an annual examina
tion of the books by state and fed
eral inspectors. In addition, all of
ficers who handle money arc in

The credit union is primarily a
cooperative association of people
who are interested in saving. Be
