BROOKLYN, N. Y. (Special) For his work in endeavoring
to persuade the American Bowling Congress to eliminate its rule
that only whites may compete in tournaments under its authority,
Rev. Charles T. Carow, professor at Cathedral College here,
received a testimonial from the Brooklyn Catholic Interracial
Council at its fourth annual meeting at the Academy of Music last
Sunday. The president of the council, Cottrell E. Cooper, a
Negro Catholic, presided.
Action of the American Bowling
Congress at its recent convention
in retaining its rule, notwithstand
ing Father Carow's representations,
caused Msgr. Raymond J. Campion,
chaplain of the Council and pastor
of St. Peter Caver's Church, to
urge Catholics to take a practical
stand against such examples of
interracial discrimination.
."Actually the freedom we boast
as every American's precious right
and heritage is at this moment lar
gely denied to our Negro fellow
Americans. This denial will con
tinue as long as fair-minded men
remain indifferent to the enslave
ment the Negro suffers," he said.
.."It has been estimated that there
are over half a million graduates
from Catholic Colleges in this coun
try. This is a tremendous potential
force for leadership in applying
Christian principles to our social
problems."

Communists Outnumbered
"This great group centainly out
numbers the convinced Communits
who are devoted to propagating
hate, misery and destruction. Yet
the record shows Communists are
more active and better organized
for their destructive program of pro
moting human misery than are
tdday's Catholics in leading us on
the constructive way of a better
social order and a happier life."
"The unconcern, the false sense of
security and the indifference so
many of today's Catholics manifest
is inexcusable. We cannot remain
at peace if we maintain a cold,
callous indifference o our neigh
bor's woe."
Every Catholic, Msgr. Campion
said, "stands challenged by the re
cent decision of the American Bowl
ing Congress. This group controls
the great pastime and sport of bowl
ing. Scores of Catholics, individuals
and organizations, belong to it. Yet,
it is sad to relate that this organi
zation in- its recent convention
voted to maintain its rule that only
Caucasians could complete in bowl
ing tournaments under its authority.
"This is a crippling disability to
Negroes who like to bowl. I do
not like to see St. Peter Claver's
parishioners barred from bowling
competition in regulated and super
vised alleys because they happen to
be Negroes.
"Here indeed is a challenge to to
day's Catholics. Are we to sit by
in smug satisfaction and enervating
indifference and allow this grave
injustice to continue? I am de
lighted that Father Carow . . . car
ried the fight to the highest auth
ority of the American Bowling Con
gress. He at least accepted the
challenge and by raising his voice
in protest set many men to thinking.
Elmer Carter Speaks
Other speakers were Paul D.
Williams, president of the Southern
Regional Council, a Catholic, who
discussed "What the South is Do
ing," and Elmer A. Carter, member
of the New York State Commission
Against Discrimination, who spoke
on "The Challenge to the North."
The New York Interracial Singers
rendered several musical numbers.
Observing xthat the most vital
area , for elimination of racial dis
crimination is in the field of em
ployment, Mr. Carter said that New
York. Massachusetts, Connecticut,
and New Jersey have taken the first
step in this direction, and that the
second step "must be taken by you,
by those who by birth, tradition
and training subscribe to the con
cept of the brotherhood of man and
the fatherhood of God."

Priest Aids Pope s
Representative At
MassInN.C.
WILMINGTON, N. C.: (special)
Father John Bowman, S. V. . D.,
Negro Catholic priest and former
army chaplain, was an officer at
the Pontifical Solemn High Mass
offered here- last week by Most
Rev. Amleto G. Cicognani, D. D.,
Archbishop of Laodicea and Apos
tolic Delegate. Archibshop Cicog
nani is Pope Pius' personal repre
sentative in the United States.
Father Bowman, who is a pro
fessor at St. Augustine's Seminary,
Bay St., Louis, Miss., was subdea
con at the Mass.
The Mass, which was offered in
St. Mary's Church, marked th-
; opening of the second annual con
vention of the North Carolina
Laymen's Association.
It is believed that this was the
second time that a Catholic arch
bishop had visited this city. It was
the first time that a Negro priest
had ever been an officer at a Pon
tifical High Mass in that state.
Most Rev. Vincent S. Waters,
D. D., Bishop of Raleigh, who had
invited Father Bowman to partici
pate, was seated in the sanctuary
during the Mass. Most. Rev. Vin
cent Taylor, O. S. B., Abbot of
Belmont Abbey, was also in the
sancturary-
Deacons of honor to Archibshop
Cicognani were Ft. Thomas Mona
han, of the Josephite Fathers, pas
tor of St. Thomas Church, Wilm
ington, membership in which is pre.
dominently colored; and Fr. Roland
Cross of the Franciscan Fathers
Conventual, pastor of St. Joseph's
Church, Burgaw.
Following the Mass, "The Ma
donna of the Highways" trailer
chapel, a "church on wheels" de
signed to provide religious serv
ices for Catholics in rural areas of
North Carolina, was dedicated by
Archbishop Cicognani.

Anti-Draft Group
Asks More Negroes
In Service
WASHINGTON: The National
Council Against Conscription sug
gested this week that the armed
forces could increase their man
power supply by changing their
attitude on Negroes.
The Council distributed a pam
phlet saying, 'The rigid 10 per cent
ceiling on Negroe enlistments and
the injustices within the segrega
ted military forces create a road
block."
It called the Russell-Maybank
amendment to the Senate draft
bill "an essentially Fascist idea."
The amendment would permit
members of the armed forces to
serve only with members of their
own race if they wished.
"Army divisions composed en
tirely of those who believe they be
long to a superior race would be
dangerous o America," the council
said. It quoted the war time Negro
press as reporting that "segrega
tion . . . bared suspicion, sullen dis
trust, hatreds and widespread vio
lence.
Signers of the pamphlet includ

Boston; Henry Hitt Crane, Metho
dist pastor, of Detroit; Father

Celebration of Arbor Day
An intensified observance of Ar
bor day, perennial harbinger of
spring, which now is being cele
brated on various dates in all states
of the union, is the aim of leading
horticultural organizations through
out the nation. The genuinely-need-'
ed tree planting job, which is done
on Arbor day, has been urged by
successive presidents of the United
States since the inception of Arbor
day, 76 years ago.
Siberia, Farthest North
A large portion of Siberia lies
north of the arctic circle. Arctic
climatic conditions in Siberia reach
south as far as Lake Baikal in
Eastern Siberia, which Is about
twice the size of Lake Ontario and
more than a mile deep. North and
west of Lake Baikal lies the Re
gion of Irkutsk, a huge plateau
which is being developed agricul
turally. o
White and Yellow Corn
White and yellow corn have the
same soli requirements. White corn
should be isolated from yellow by
at least 200 yards. If they are plant
ed closer together the two colors
may mix in tbo first few rows. Of
90 million acres of corn grown an
nually in the United States only IS
per cent is white.
What Will The Next Step Be?
At the moment word comes that both the Jews and Arabs
have accepted the United Nations proposal that they cease firing
for a period of four weeks. It is welcome news because at least it
means that many, many lives will be spared for at least a matter
of four weeks.
Now we wonder if this is just a temporary respite that will
be concluded with more bloodshed or will there be an adjustment
made that will be fair and agreeable to both sides?
It is unfortunate that it has to be said but up to this point
the U. N. has been so weak and vacilating in the face of this crisis
that it is difficult to see just what they can do, if this truce ends in
a logger-head.
We wish too that we could be completely impartial in this
situation but the fact that the Arabs deliberately broke all interna
tional laws ' about aggression by invading the Holy Land, makes
it impracticable. For to us it would seem that they have consciously
defied the U. N. because they felt they could get away with it.
And the U. 'M. has confirmed this opinion by arguing and squirming
in the face of a situation . that tested their strength in preserving
world peace.
Let us hope that this pause in mass murder will result in the
U. N., taking a complete about face and standing for the justice
that the little people of the world hoped it would when first
organized.
