Then I thought it would be a much better way if I gave it to the Holy Father for his mission needs.” Was it a bonus, in surance dividend or settlement? We didn’t ask.

Douglas Hyde, British communist leador for 20 years before joining the Church in 1948, emphasized that "when wo deal with communism, wo are dealing with an evil, but when we deal with a commun ist we are dealing with some one who can be an asset to the Church." In Cincinnati to address the Medievalists, the 45-y e a -o 1 newspaperman also spoke to stu dents of St. Gregory’s Seminary and to the Salesian Guild, Cin cinnati Catholic writers’ group. Mr. Hyde, a former editor of the London Daily Worker now with the London Catholic Herald, told the seminarians that “com munists over and over again shame Christians with their sac rifices of time, energy and mon ey for the communist cause.” The party owes its success to "a herd core of utterly ded icated persons willing to do anything," he said, and it makes headwey despite the fact that as atheists the communists "work at a disadvantage, since they don't have God on their side." Stressing the importance of knowing the communist “as a person,” Mr. Hyde explained that to a communist his membership in the party is “an ideal, a re ligion, a revolt against what's wrong in society, a role in a world-wide revolutionary organi zation dedicated to the overthrow of everything for which western civilization has stood.” The communist, he went on. is “usually a person who is spiritu Here’s the score: 750 new cases of TB in Franklin County in 1956—more than all other in fectious diseases combined!

"This has boon helped along by the fact that there are so many people wandering aimlessly, just waiting to follow any lead er in any direction."

It does not seek publici ty. political success or even wide membership, preferring to grasp power by infiltrating into the trade unions and other essential groups and agitating behind an army of fellow-travelers. The party is reputed to have an actual membership of around 30.000, out of all proportion to the support it gets and the unrest it causes. While boosting for all it is worth the sales of the Daily Worker, it keeps actual party membership selective and molcjs those who join into a well-trained nucleus of leaders. Most sensational resignation of all was that of Peter Fryer, the Daily Worker's star report er who had been sent specially to Budapest to cover the rebel lion. Mr. Fryer protested that two of his stories were not used and a third was severely cut. In a published statement he de- .V the diocesan elementary and high schools held each spring. The officers presenting the check were conducted by Mother Bede on a tour of one of the units of the Orphanage and were impressed with the beauty, the modern facilities, and the home like atmosphere of the ne building. By John A. Greaves LONDON,--The Russian atrocities in Hungary have dealt the small but highly-organized British Communist Party the hardest blow since it was founded in 1920. Worried leaders—its 12-man political committee—met in hurried secret session in volt among members and called a special extraordinary national congress for early next year to ventilate "various ten e n i e s diminishing the role-of the party or weakening its organizational principles.” As the patriots continued their resistance to Hungary, a steady stream of well-known commun ists—trade tin inn leaders, writers and intellectuals have publicly broken their party affiliation. But perhaps more than these, the party bosses are reported to be worried by the mass desertion of fellow-travelers thoughout the nation horrified at Red ruthless ness, sympathetic for the Hungar ians and disillusioned by the ex posure of the “workers’ paradise” behind thd Iron Curtain. 79, Co- ABERNETHY, Mrs. Nellie, Nov. 19, St. lumbus.

By Michael Derrick LONDON (NC) In the front windows of many homes in Britain this Christmas Eve a lighted candle will be seen, put there to show the Infant Christ the way a custom borrowed from other countries. Promoters of this scheme are a small group of anony mous Catholic ex-servicemen whose Christmas poster cam paign, initiated in 1950, has caught the popular imagina tion. This year they mean to make Christmas a festival of light. Not only will candles glow in the windows of private houses, but, wherever it can be arranged, the posters—pic tures of the Nativity scene dis played orv the public billboards —will be floodlighted. In six years the Christmas poster campaign has become in ternational. Individuals in other countries ask for posters in 1955 the mayor of a town in the U.S.S.R. sent a request for some Although Catholic-inspired and directed, the Christmas poster campaign has been warmly sup ported not only by the Catholic Bishops but by the leaders of other churches, too. "If Is altogether splendid," wrote the Archbishop of Can terbury, Primata of the church of England, and he edded: "It should play a really important part in bringing the truth of the Christiaq Gospel back into the hearts and minds of the people." The posters carry no indication of the source of their distribution —only a simple painting of Christ in a manger, equally acceptable to all Christians. The promoters stress that this is more than a publicity cam paign nn behalf of the great Christian festival. They ask every Christian to say a prayer when passing one of the posters. "Talk about Christmas and its meaning to as many people as possible," they add. "Be as well informed as possible your self about the theology of the Incarnation." Many Catholics, and doubtless many other Christians, have been brought back to the practice of their religion as a direct result of this campaign. One priest wrote last January: "Just before Christmas I was coming down the convent drive when at the gates I saw a man looking up at the Christmas poster whitfh was displayed on the wall next to the front en trance. He was a complete stranger, but quite spontaneously he turned and said. ‘Isn’t Our I^idy lovely?’ ‘“Yes indeed,’ I agreed, and asked, ‘Are you a Catholic?’ "'I used to ba, 25 years ago: and now I've forgotten how to go to confession.' Then he add ed suddenly: 'Could you help me?' 'Of course,' I replied. "We walked to the nearby church, and he made his confes sion there and then. He had even forgotten the Hail Mary, so we said it together. And the next day he received Our Lord again Costs of the poster campaign are met by the sale of stickers showing the nativity scene. These have already helped to spread the Christmas message on nearly sev en million letters and parcels. But the costs are much lower than might be thought. Not only do many shops offer to display the posters, but ail over Britain advertising contractors give im portant sites without charge, and distinguished artists have freely offered their services. One notable result has been the return to England of the Marian Council Holds First Degree Marian Council 3864 of the Knights of Columbus initiated five candidates into the First Degree of the Order on Wednes day, Nov. 28. Thomas Williams. Paul Schil ling, Robert Mallory, Leo Thurn and Robert Parker were the can didates initiated and were wel comed as brother Knights with a supper and an entertaining program after the initiation. o----------- Dover Holy Name Adds 50 Members DOVER Members of the Holy Name society of St Joseph parish, received Holy Communion in a body during the 8 a.m. Mass recently.

Big stores and many branches of a famous chain store—in London and provin cial cities provide an entire window. There is scarcely a town or city which does not publicly and prominently dis play its crib. Some have found historic sites, as on ancient city walls or in the ruins of an old castle. Others are presented in such modern settings es rail way stations or e*en in cine mas. It is nntabjp how oftrn the crib is built in thp civic center, often with financial support from the local authorities, to identify the whole community with the Christ mas message. In Leeds the authorities have agreed, for the third successive Christmas season, to a living crib being presented on the steps of the town hall with the Mother of God arriving each evening on a donkey and the kings and shep herds all walking in procession through the streets.
