Il Corriere della Sera. He wrote that soldiers, women, children and people of every age crowd into the churches in Czech oslovakia for every service made available to them. Religious acts are not openly forbidden by law, he stated, but special efforts are exerted so that attendance at re ligious ceremonies is noted in the police files on each family. The reported increase in re ligious activities in Czechoslo vakia parallels similar trends in other communist-dominated coun tries. Last March at the congress of the Communist Federation at Rijeka, Yugoslavia, party secre tary Nicola Racki complained that too many members of the Com munist party are showing interest in religious functions. He lament ed that only one child in 80 is not attending church services, and that almost everyone is ask ing a priest to bless his home.

Addressing a special audi ence granted to delegates to the first congress of the Inter-' national Economic Association, the Pope appealed for consid eration of spiritual values as an integral part of economic problems. In order to reach an exact un derstanding of economic facts, the Holy Father said, economic theory must consider material and human aspects, both person al and social. He declared that theory must be free and at the same time completely logical and constructive, “because inspired by the true sense of human ex istence.” The Popo explained that one of the more fortunate charac teristics of modern times is the growing feeling of interde pendence between members of various social groups. This leads them, he said, to recog nize that human personality does not reach its real dimen sions if it does not take into account personal and social re sponsibilities. Many purely eco nomic problems will find their solution only through an ef fort for mutual understand ing and sincere love, he added. About 400 economists from 32 countries came here from their meeting in Rome to hear the Pope speak. Among them was Dr. Howard S. Ellis, professor of eco nomics at the University of Cali fornia at Berkeley, who is pres ident of the International Eco nomic Association. The group was founded in Paris in 1949 under the auspices of the Unit ed Nations Educational, Scien tific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), and while it has spon sored various meetings, the Rome session was its first congress. In his discourses, which ha gave in French, Pope Pius said that the theme of the congress— “Stability and Progress in the World Economy”—itself pointed up the dangers of world condi tions running contrary to what the theme indicates. The economist, he said, is fac ed with the difficult solutions of such instability, and his import ant task is to find a way to lessen (Continued on Page 2) Local Plans Made For National Youth Week Observance Father Richard Dodd, diocesan director of youth ac tivities announced the diocesan program in observance of National Youth Week, October 28—November 4.
