Czechs Croud

Religious Revival
MILAN, Italy (NC) There
is a religious revival in Czecho
slovakia, according to a cor
respondent for the Milan news
paper. 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.

Pope Says Job
Of Economist
Vital Today
CASTELGANDOLFO, Italy (NC) The increasing
imbalance between the have and have-not nations is making
the role of the economist ever more important, His Holi
ness Pope Pius XII declared here.
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
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
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
