Call For Valiant Women: Aged Rumania Bishop reed Commie St vie VIENNA INC) The re lease from prison of an aged Rumanian Bishop carries with it no indication that he will be permitted to exercise his of fice. At the same time it spotlights the fact that not a single Catholic Bishop in Ru mania is now permitted to carry’ out his pastoral func tions. The release of 83-year-old Bish op Augustine Pacha of Timisoara was announced here by the lega tion of com.nunist Rumania. No direct confirmation has so far been received from Catholic sources in side that country. Bishop Pacha was sentenced to 18 years imprisonment in Septem ber. 1951, on charges of “espion age” and “treason.” Three years earlier he had been “deposed” from his diocese, which was “sup pressed” by the Red regime. Both before and after his "trial" in Bucharest the Bishop was reportedly forced to join a slave labor gang working on the proposed canal linking the Dan ube River and the Black Sea. It was reported in 1952 that the Bishop had been injured in an accident during the canal con struction work. The Rumanian legation announced that the Bishop was released because of ill health. Other reports from communist Rumania stated that the aged Bishop had been severely mistreat, ed during his imprisonment be cause he persistently refused to as sume leadership of 3 schismatic "national Catholic Church.” -------------0------------------ Mississippi To Continue Segregation JACKSON, Miss.—(NC)—Missis sippi’s Goverfior Hugh White has announced he will call a special session of the State Legislature Sept. 7 to consider a Constitution al amendment to empower the abolition of the State public school system in order to prevent racial integration in the schools.

It was Mr. Siller* who originally proposed the plan of a Constitutional amendment to abolish the public school system. Governor White said he would not advocate launching a building program of Negro schools as ad vocated by Negro leaders at the conference “without some protec tive measures, because ’t will not succeed.” Cornerstone Blessed For Holy Name School Bishop Ready celebrated Pontifical Low Mass and presided at cornerstone laying ceremonies for the new eight classroom Holy Nam* School, Sunday.

Summarizing their record of the past years, Bishop Ready said that “in the Mercy of God the Daugh ters of Isabella, by fidelity to their own special purposes as well as by an unselfish Catholic spirit have huiit great and notable monuments for the welfare of the Church and the Nation: "The sacrifice* of devout Daughter* of Isabella have en riched the Catholic University endowments and have brought generous aid to the Sovereign Pontiff in his unflagging deter mination to be indeed a Holy Fa ther to the world's distressed suf fering children.

You are, he told them, "united primarily to serve the Church and by your truly Catho lic lives to show its beauty and unity to this American society.” Commenting on the present ef forts now being expended by the various non-Catholic church groups in the cause of unity the Bishop noted that Catholic organizations have essential unity to start with. “We are of the one Church,” he said. “One Lord, one Christ, one Baptism, one God and Father of All: one sheepfold, one shepherd one doctrine, one essential wor ship: one altar, one Sacrifice: one faith, one hope one undying Christlike charity.” Thus is denied the need to meet to form :?.le code or to draw up const it u’ions to establish Christian unity, the Bishop showed noting that any other process of unifica tion is the “work of men ... a unity superimposed on fact and often out of agreement with fact.” "Many influences, particularly the diffusa development of the democretic idee end ideal during the last two centuries," Bishop Ready explained, "have imposed upon us all the duly of collective end cooperative social effort.
