HONG KONG (Radio. N. C.)—The
Chinese Red regime, in an effort
to curry faior with France at the
forthcoming Geneva conference, is
speeding up the release of impri
soned French missionaries.
This interpretation is strengthen
ed by the arrival here of a(French
Bishop, seven French missionary
priests and a Brother. Six of them
were imprisoned in Shanghai, one
in Canton, and one in Tientsin.
More released French missionaries
are reported en route to this Bri
All priests and Religious releas
ed by Red China since the middle
of March ha\e been of French nati
onality. No American missionary
has been released since October,
1953. when Father Sigfrid Schnei
der, O. F. M. of Louisville, Ky„ ar
rived here. One American Bishop
and 12 missionaries are still held
in Red jails.

BERLIN—(NV)—The Polish com
munist regime has slightly relaxed
regulations on gift packages to that
country, according to information
The prohibitive duties have not
been reduced, it was stated, but
their reduction is being consider
ed. The regime is reportedly plan
ning a 20 to 30 per cent cut on food
and clothing duties.
The relaxation concerned other
details of the regulations. It was
leared that recipients of the gifts
will now be given four weeks in
stead of only five days to pay the
duty on the packages, before these
will be confiscated by the state.
The new regulations also state
that a reduction in duties can be
made by local authorities “if the
fact has been established that the
recipient cannot, in part or com
pletely, pay the imposed duties.”
Packages on which the required
duty is not paid, are turned over
to the local authorities for distri
bution “among the needy” as these
authorities see fit.
Th* original February 9, 1954,
decree reportedly imposed such
exorbitant duties as $75 for a
pound of butter, $37.50 on a pair
of shoes and $125 on a dress.
Before these duties were impos

told by His Eminence Samuel
Cardinal Stritch, Archbishop of
Chicago. He urged the Religious
to welcome th* lay teachers into
th* Catholic school system. The
main problems, however, are to
provide special training needed
for good Catholic instructors, to
pay lay teachers adequate wges,
and to interest young people in
th* "new vocation" of dedicated

4. EXCEPTIONAL CHILDREN.
There are some 750,000 of them,
calling for special teaching in Ca
tholic schools. More than 100.000
specifically trained teachers are
needed to instruct them. NCEA will
concentrate a nation wide effort to
meet this need.
Vision, Planning Needed
“Breadth of vision and long
range planning to proiide spiritual
ly and intellectually competent
teachers,” both lay and Religious,
stressing the importance of the
teacher shortage problem, were
called for in resolutions adopted
by the convention.
At the closing general session.
Father Robert J. Slavin, O.P., pres
ident of Providence (R.I.) College,
called lor a statistical study of all
problems as a basis of planning.
He said: “A broad base of factual
evidence indicating our need and
our potential must be the first
step in looking to the future.”
