Of Philippine’s Voters
MANILA (NC) A joint pastoral was issued here by
the Catholic Hierarchv of the Philippines stressing the duties
of Catholic voters in the coming November elections. The
Bishops said these obligations were not only to vote, but to
help maintain the freedom and integrity of the election polls.
Referring to the intense and in-/
creasing rivalry between National-!
ists and Liberals, which has alI
ready erupted into bloodshed ini
various sectors of the country, thel
Bishops said the November elec-l
tions may well be one of the del
cisive turning points in Philippine!
history. They stressed that any in-l
terference with the freedom of thel
ballot is a serious crime againstl
God and the State. I
“We here in the Philippines,"I
the Bishop asserted, “are approach
ing a very important event, thel
general elections, and party rival-1
ry has been brought to the keenest I
pitch. This rivalry is in itself al
good sign, as indicating a growing!
awareness among our people ofl
public issues and an increased po-l
litical maturity. I
Moderating Influence I
“But since such rivalry always I
carries with it the danger of civic!
dissension and national disunity,!
it seems opportune at this time!
that some moderating influence!
should make itself felt—an influ-l
ence capable of calming irritated!
tempers and ensuring that sound!
principles of prudence and morali
ty rather than factional hatred andl
personal enmities should dominate!
the conduct of the elections.”
Discussing the evil of election
frauds, the Bishops declared that
“surely every political leader
worthy of the name must see that
to violate the secrecy of the ballot
or to tamper with election returns
is to strike a blow at the very
heart of our democratic system.”
"Wa refuse to believe," tha Bish
ops said, "that any political leader
will even think of attacking or
undermining the sacred freedom
of the polls." However, they stated
that "should anyone attempt to do
so, we wish to maka it known that
such a man commits a grievous
crime against the fundamental law
of our Republic, against the estab-

will surely punish, if the State does

party considerations, sinks so low
as to preVent or sabotage free
Stressing that the Church

direct result of last year’s Mission
Sunday collection, is the opening of

For Attacks On Clergy
GRAZ. Austria Tito’s speech calling a halt to the beat
ing of priests and Bishops is seen here as an attempt to allay
aroused world opinion and to obviate discussion of these at
tacks at the forthcoming conference of the Interparliamentary’
Union in Washington.
It is reported here that Yugo
slav diplomats in the western Eu
ropaen capitals have repeatedly
warned the Foreign Office in Bel
grade that delegates to the Wash
ington conference (Oct. 9-14) would
charge the Yugoslav government
with direct responsibility for recent
attacks on priests and Bishops.
(Lawmakers from 33 nations, in
cluding Yugoslavia, are expected at
the Interparliamentary conference
in Washington. They will take
social, economic and international
problems and study what national
legislatures can do (o solve them.)
Tito's public "condemnation" of
these attacks and his statement that
they are against the law are view
ed here as an attempt to put the
Tito regime in the position of hav
ing no responsibility for them.
Tito spoke to a large crowd at
Ruma in the heart of an agricultur
al area near Belgarde. For obser
vers here, tuo things tood out in
The first was his concern over
world opinion. He told his listen
ers that the Churches were using
the attacks as an opportunity to
pursue their “hostile policy."
Secondly, Tito urged a mass boy

as at least a temporary alternative
'The impression among observers
here is that the truce called by
Tito is only temporary and may
be broken al any time. It is also
