China, that the communists' hope
is to make religion disappear un

Father O'Connor spoke out vig
orously against admission of Red
China to the United Nations.
He said that most arguments in
favor of such a move arc based
on a “so-called realism.” He con
tended there were also “realis

"It would havo an Immediate
effect on the whole continent of
Aeta, giving a great boost to the
communist cause there and
among the 12 million overseas
Chinese. It could wall tip the
balance in favor of the Peking
government," he contended.
“It would also give millions of
people the sense of bein* sold out
to the communists.” he declared.
