Christianity, Common Goals European Unity Basis, Pope Says VATICAN CITY The message of Christ, Europe’s most precious gift, should be the basis of its unity, His Holiness Pope Pius XII told 1,000 delegates to the Euro pean Congress here. The continent’s unity, the Holy Father continued, must also be based on a thorough knowledge of its common eco nomic, cultural and spiritual in terests. The Pontiff praised the dele gates—parliamentarians from 16 European countries meeting in Rome—for their work for unity. "Your aim," ho said, "is to procure for Europe, so often torn and drenched with blood ... a lasting cohesion which will enable her to proceed with her historic mission." The Christian message, the Holy Father declared, “can pre serve the fundamental lib erties of human beings and guar antee, within the framework of a supernational community, re spect for cultural differences and a spirit of conciliation and collaboration, as well as an ac ceptance of the resulting obliga tions and sacrifices.” Human societies, the Pope pointed out, are constantly seek ing better forms of organization and often survive only by dis appearing and giving birth to bet ter forms of civilization. To all societies, he went on, “Christianity brings a new ele ment of development and sta bility. Above all it guides their steps forward toward a clearly defined objective and provides them with a fatherland which does not belong to this world and where perfect unity will be experienced be cause it will derive from the strength and light of God Him self.” Th* Pop* cited th* Euratom and common market agree ments as examples of progress already mad* toward European unity. Although these are lim ited to th* economic field, he said, they can lead to unity in other areas. The new community created by these agreements, “by ex panding its field of action, can lead to increasing member states’ awareness of their common in terests,” he said. While this will happen at first on a material Local Camps Expect Usual Big Crowds Both Camps St. Joseph Lock bourne St. Rita near Canal Win Chester began the 1957 camping season this past week.

He urged that Europe try to retain opportuni ties to exercise an educational influence in Africa and recom mended that it give large amounts of material aid to Africans. In this way, he said, th* African standard of living would be raised and the con tinent's natural resources would be developed. “Europe will thus prove,” he concluded, “that her objective in wanting to form a community of states is not one of selfish with drawal and that it is not inspired by a defensive purpose against foreign powers threatening her interests, but that it is above all constructive and unselfish help.” Bishop Says Don’t Be Ashamed Of Egghead Tag NEW YORK—(NO—“Don’t be ashamed to be called intellec tuals.” The advice was imparted by Bishop Russell J. McVinney of Providence, R.I., to the 493 grad uates at Manhattan College’s 106th commencement exercises as he cited a strange, present-day phenomenon in this country the distrust of intellectualism. "Today th* mental lazy bones, the imbecilic seeker aft er security, th* earthy hedon ist, calls the intellectual an egg-head," Bishop McVinney said. "May I exhort you to seek your places among th* think ers of your times—don't blush to be called an intellectual, rather be ashamed not to be one." Bishop McVinney advised the graduates not to hoard their knowledge but to use it for the betterment of mankind and them selves. He recalled the admoni tion of St. Gregory the Great— “Knowledge without life makes one arrogant life without knowl edge makes one useless.” Mass Offered For Bp. Guilfoyle By Abp.

He summed up life in Tientsin is a daily struggle for survival.

A Baptismal rec ord dated August 25, 1845, at tests to the baptism of a Phillip Shop (probably Schaub), born July 7, 1845, the son of Adam Shop (Schaub) and Magdalene Smidhis ler. The record is signed by Fath er Joseph Lamy, afterwards the first Archbishop of Santa Fe whose life story is beautifully told in the famous novel by Willa Cather entitled “Death Comes to the Archbishop.” A small community of Catholic settlers, German, French, and Irish, sprang up in the beautiful Alum Rock Country, about four miles southwest of what is new Glenmont. This community was sometimes called St. Joseph’s, Greer, or Black Creek and Napol eon. There these people built their pioneer chapel out of logs, called it St. Joseph’s, and it is entered under this name in the Ei i III First In Ohio San Antonio Hospital, Kenton Receives First CD Power Unit would use part of Ford Founda tion grant to pay its share. According to William E.

The auxiliary unit will furnish 6216 kilowatts and a 25 percent overload, Drews said, and will op erate the entire hospital facilities including, lighting, elevators, power etc. Stuart Mabrey, electrical con tractor who installed the new power unit*with the cooperation of the Ohio Power Co., aided by hospital maintenance personnel said the unit includes a 200-gal lon junderground gasoline stor everyone, and what little is avail able is of such a low quality that it is scarcely edible. The same is true of bread, sugar, and other basic foodstuffs,” he continued. “The once important fish mar ket of Tientsin is now practically non-existent,” said Mr. Pezzini. “The fishermen refuse to sell their catch to the government because they suspect them of shipping the fish to Russia. “Meanwhile, despite Red prop aganda to the contrary, the food situation is becoming worse.” Life for the youth of China means hard labor, strict super vision and discipline, said the former customs official.

Log Church The foundation of this log church can still be seen, sur rounded by the graves and old tombstones, some of which bear the date of 1846. Some of the older members of the present parish still speak of their parents mentioning this log church. Services were sometimes held by missionaries in private homes several times a year, traveling the slow way, by horseback, from Cleveland, Cincinnati and Zanes ville. One of the oldest church rec oids goes back to August 7, 1848. A priest who signed himself as “G. Frerie, sacerdos,” baptized two persons and united in Holy Marriage two others on that date. Father Frerie had baptisms in each of the succeeding months of 1848. On the 14th of October, 1848, a Louis Nicholas Gerard was baptized by one whose name reappears in the baptismal record in 1859, when on November 24 of that year he again baptized three persons. The handwriting is the same in both instances. It is simply signed A. Epis, Cleve land. (Continued on Page 2) KT" CDA. J. E.

The warning was sounded in a joint pastoral ——...letter signed by His Eminence Antonio Cardinal Caggiano, Archbishop of Rosario, and 21 other prelates. The letter urged this country’s voters to take active part in the July 28 elections. On that date Argentinians are scheduled to elect a constituent assembly which will adopt a new constitu tion, including new electoral laws. General elections under the new laws have been prom ised for 1958 by the provisional government of President Pedro Aramburu. The pastoral letter empha sized the dangers of govern ment monopolies in the fields of education and labor union activities. The Bishops urged correction of present abuses by voting for parties which stand for a free school system and free trade unions. “In Argentina.” they wrote, “freedom of education is de nied and a state monopoly of ed ucation exists against the will of parents Furthermore, a sin gle (labor) union has been es tablished, giving the lie to any talk of freedom of association.

Ark., (NC) The largely lackadaisical attitude of the Americanpublic toward labor rackeetering was criticized here by U.S. Sen. John F. Ken nedy of Massachusetts. In an address at the convention of the Arkansas Bar Association he said: "It is the public that toler ates corrupt, frightened or sim ply apathetic public officials.. It is the public that pays higher prices and higher texes at th* result of this labor rackeeter ing, but does little or nothing about it ... It is the public that shrugs off these sordid tales as inevitable develop ments about which nothing can be done ..." The general public has the greatest responsibility of all, he stated. Admitting that the problems are “seemingly impossible to o\ercome,” he asserted, “What we need is not despair, but ac tion an approach not of resigna tion, but of illumination.” In reviewing disclosures made against high-ranking officials of the Teamster Union before the Senate Rackets Committee, of which he is a member, Sen. Ken nedy urged the Lawyers to sup port federal legislation that would protect union members from the manipulations of cor rupt officials. rights, there is a craftily pre served trade-unionism which is subjected to tyranny of lead ers who embrace extremist ideologies.” The Church, the letter con tinued, upholds the principle of free trade-unions, autonomous and independent of the state. The Bishops compleined that political leaders in Argentina do not respect th* wishes of th* people with regard to so cial and political problems. Instead, they wrote, these men present to th* people ready made solutions which all to frequently are inadequate and contrary to the best interests of the people.
