A program developing the story
of the early Church in Ohio was
presented by the Holy Name Grade
School for members of the parish
PTA at their recent meeting.
A narrator, assisted by a verse
choir, delved into historical docu
ments and brought to life the pi
oneer priests, religious and lay
men who planted the seed of the
Catholic Faith in Ohio. For fifty
minutes, the audience relived the
past as the young actors, stepping
from a life-size book, characterized
the early apostles and their lay
helpers in establishing the Church
in the Buckeye state.
The picture above is of the final
scene in the pageant which sum
marizes the historical development
presented.

Pontifical Mission
Goes To Aid Of
Arab Refugees
AMMAN. Jordan (Radio, NC)—
The Pontifical Relief Commission
for Palestine began the distribution
of relief supplies among thousands
of Arab refugees throughout Jor
dan towns and villages, in the
wake of new distress caused hy
gales accompanied bv bitter cold.
The supplies were donated by
American Catholics, and consisted
of 400 bales of clothing and shoes
approximating 25 tons.
A sudden. 36-hour storm de
stroyed the tents w'hich constituted
the only shelter of many hundreds
of destitute displaced families.
Continuing heavy rains and unsea
sonable snow aggravated the diffi
culties of relief distribution, and
intensified the sufferings of the
refugees.

GRAZ. Austria (Radio. NC)—
Communist school authorities in
Croatia, Yugoslavia, are preparing
to “crack down” on Catholic chil

who still cling to their religion de
spite efforts to indoctrinate them
in atheistic Marxism.
This was indicated in reports
here of a three day closed meeting
of school inspectors and headmas
ters in the People’s Republic, to
lay plans to undermine the religion
of the Catholic pupils.
Catholic circles in Zagreb were
reported concerned lest the meet
ing herald a new plan that would
represent a further step in the
program begun in the state .schools
in 1945 to train young people in
patterns of “progressive thought”
based upon Marxism.
Speakers at the meeting com
plained especially that many

have a "bad effect" on the mind
and character of the children.
They said that this was one of the
main reasons why the "progress

penetrated the classrooms.
One of the chief decisions of the
meeting was to submit to the Min
ister of Education in the Croatian
provincial government a list of 120
church-going teachers who were
recommended to he dismissed or
retired on pension as "unsuitable.”
Meanwhile, lean Leko, a noted
atheist, urged the school officials

here believe.
Engaged in framing a constitu
tion, the Constituent Assembly of
Pakistan adopted, without amend
ment. an article stating that "no
legislature should enact any law’
which is repugnant to the Holy
Koran and the Sunnah.” Catholic
authorities believe that this firmly
entrenches Islam as the religion
of the slate and places other mi
norities in jeopardy.
The Koran is the Moslem “bible”
while the Sunnah embodies all of
their religious traditions.
Hindu members of the assem
bly, themselves a minority, propos
ed an amendment seeking a guar
antee that their personal laws
would not be violated even if these
laws were contrary to the Koran
and Sunnah. The move was coun
tered by the Pakistan Minister of
Law, A. K. Brohi, with the argu

a front-page story of the Dublin
Standard, a Catholic weekly.
The Standard’s story stated that
the arrested Primate of Poland is
held in an underground cell “in
the notorious political prison Jub

The Standard gave as the source
of its information “sources near
the Polish military mission in the
Soviet sector in Vienna.”
According to the Standard, the
only men with whom the Cardinal
is allowed to converse are political
police experts on religious matters.
It reports that these men are at
tempting to "split the personality”
of the Cardinal and induce him to
“come to terms” with the common
ist controlled government of Pol

The Standard says "it is believed
that the Cardinal will spend some
months in l.ubjanka before being

of Christianity.
In the meantime, Communism
takes the Cross without the
Christ, and in the name of Satan
bids men deny themselves to es
tablish the Kingdom of anti-God
on the earth. The 87 Communist

of Communism the young fan
atics in China promise not to
wear shoes and never to work
less than 18 hours a day to crush
the "evils” of religion, democ
racy and the freedom of the
spirit.
The Christ without the Cross is
anti-Christ the Cross without
Christ is sacrifice for the sake
not of love but hate! Until we
unite both the Cross and Christ
in our lives, we will never con
quer Communism. Were we not
called "to be conformable to His
Death” and to “the fellowship of
His sufferings”? Where are our
sacrifices? Where is our Cross?
“Without the shedding of blood
there is no remission of sins.”
Begin to deny yourself a lit
tle luxury to save souls. Break
your bad habits by sending the
amount spent on them to The So

Faith. Send your old gold, or

"Hundreds of refugees were
