We consider it an affront to the American people that the instrumentalities which should be used for their information, edi- fication and guidance should in a notable degree be degraded to the business of pandering to morbid appetites for what is gross, sen sual and scandalous. "We owe it not only to uteri. selves but to the proponen of purely materialistic doctrines a.nd remedies, not to mislead' them and others by silence into the idea that their views are accepted as sound and represent the dominant pub- lic thought. "We believe that, in the field .of industrial  relations, there must ,be proven in practice the acceptance, by those in leadei'ship and author- ity on both sides, of the principles of justice and charity as the de- terminants of their conduc2." . The statement welcomes evz- dence of a better spirit of andes:- standing and cooperation by rep- resentatives of Capital and Labor and "the indications of a tendency to subordinate purely partisan po- litical considerations to the com- mon good in the conduct of the affairs of government, domestic and international." The statement deplores "the widespread manifestation of an active propaganda for the intro- duction into our scheme of gov- ernment of doctrines which ignore the inalienable moral rights of individuals that are not the gift of the State and ignore the proper subordination of the State itself to the moral law." "This false propaganda," it is pointed out, "is cf the very essence of the totali- tarianism against which we are defending ourselves." Pope's Peace Points Cited The statement draws attention to the Peace Points of His Holiness Pope Plus XlI, and to the recent statement by the Archbishops and Bishops of the United States that "the spirit of Christianity can write a real and lasting peace in justice and charity to all nations." It asserts that, "if you are fighting for a victory which is a vindication of Christian principles and a peace that will implement them," our country and all others that have professed devotion to Christian principles, "should be represented at the peace conference .by per- sons who truly represent the views of Christian peoples, who have shown by their lives that they be- lieve in the validity and the bind- ing force of Christian principles. Emphasizing the fact that inter- national peace after this war will depend upon the development of a spirit of Christian brotherhood, the statement says: "Such a spirit ef Christian brotherhood will order the econo- my of each nation so that it will be able to give much of' its own worldly goods in fair exchange for the readily available worldly goods of other nations and will be disposed to bring about the con- ditions which make for such fair exchange so that all may in fair measure be enriched by the wealth and opportunities of each. Thus there may be reduced, not just envies and rivalries but terrific in- ternal pressures induced by want, pressures from which relief is sought by war because even the horrors and privations of war seem preferable to longer endur- ing these pressures. We do not have in mind visionary and im- practicable schemes for world-wide equalization of social and economic conditions. We recognize that the social order which leads toward international peace can come about only when the dominant forces in each nation, having a sound idea of the meaning and value of life and of the values in life, and aban- doning quack remedies and pan- aceas and the searching for an easy way, do their share, in their respective fields of action, to con- tribute to the public weal. They must do so, not only on the basis of fair exchange, but even more, on the basis of a trusteeship to use their goods and talents and op- portunities for the common good." Nazis Comment 31 Illness Of Dutch Prelate (By N.C.W.C. News Scrvlce) New York. (E--The declaration that the Most Rev. Joannes de Jong, Archbishop of Utrecht and bitter foe of the German attempt {0 lazify the people of invaded Holland, "may soon be out Of the way" was made by the Dutch Nazi journalist, Max Blokzijl, in an ad- dress delivered over the German- controlled Netherlands Broadcast= ins Corporation. The address was picked up by short-wave radio here. Archbishop de Jong is known to be seriously ill. !'Netherlands Bishops have for years mentioned in words and writing that National Socialism is a dangerous doctrine for the Ro- man Catholic Church and even represents anti-Christian teach- ing," the Nazi journalist stated adding: "The ailing Archbishop of Ut- recht is the guiding spirit against Nazism, but he is very iii and may soon be out of the way." Dutch Nazis have been carrying on a continuous attack against Archbishop de Jong since the Ger- man invasion of Holland. In the role of Hollands out- standing religious leader against ,the forces of Nazism, Archbishop de Jong has issued a series of pastoral letters to Catholics in Holland setting forth a program of complete resistance to totalitarians i principles. In 1934, long before the actual invasion of Holland, the Dutch Hierarchy condemned Nazism. Three months after the German occupation, Archbishop de Jong drafted a pastoral letter violently attacking Nazism, which was read in all Catholic churches in Hol- land. His second pastoral, issued Jan- uary 26, 1941, warned that sym- pathy with National Socialism would mean exclusion from the Sacraments. Nazi interference with the Ca- tholic Workers Union bffought forth the third pastoral on August 3, 1941, in which Archbishop de Jong said: "Openly and loudly we raise our voice against the injustice done to tens of thousands of per- sons by robbing them of their social status. We protest against the moral constraints and the at- tempts made to force upon them a conception of life conflicting with their religious convictions."

News Service) Buenos Aires.0)The conquests of social justice contained in the Beveridge plan now under con- sideration in England, and those principles advocated at the recent Inter-American Seminar on Social Studies at Washington may come in time, El Pueblo, Argentine Ca- tholic dally, says; but it must not be overlooked, it adds, that "the root of these legitimate and just cenquests is in the social teach- ing of the Church." "We are in the ranks of those who are convinced that the pres- ent war must signify a profound change in the social and economic order," El Pueblo says "And in fact, each of the belligerent groups is now considering re- forms which should be put into practice once the war is ended. That is why this morning we are discussing the matter, uncertain as to some aspects but convinced as to fundamental changes that should be hailed with joy and hope." The Beveridge plan, "which has aroused great interest in England," El Pueblo thinks "cannot fail to be applauded for, if put into ef- fect, it would be another land- mark, and certainly an important one, in the field of the pacific con- quests of social "organization and legislation." But in praising the plan which "Mr. Beveridge, with the cooperation of his Government and public opinion, proposes to convert into reality in his coun- try," El Pueblo notes that one should not lose sight of the factLoe XIII, Rerum novarum--to find that "these plausible conccptions the same formulations of principles of the social order are not novelties in its pages, written more than a discovered in the light of the real-half century ago."

To ma- terialistic and liberal theses on the conception ef labor, the Catholic doctrine opposes that of the di'g- nity of labor, the editorial notes. For those who are seeking the betterment of the post-war world, El Pueblo believes it opportune to remember precisely what His Holi- ness Pope Plus XII, now resigning, has pointed out "with noonday clarity" on various occasions, and on sucll subjects as wealth and the From Enemy, Is Urge distribuunfwealth" "It is up to the men who rebuild our dis- ordered world whether they take Washington.

"What the world today suffers in unpre- dictable form, could have been snared to humanity solely by re- or naval units with which the men are attached is contained in a statement issued by the Office of Censorship. The statement follows: "On battle fronts every day men risk their lives to discover the location and strength of the military units of the enemy. Yet at home, too many of us are presenting the enemy with information of the same military value. "This is the information which newspapers and individuals are asked not to tell the enemy. "DO NOT TELL the names of ships upon which sailors serve. "DO NOT TELL the troop units in which soldiers serve overseas. "There is no objection to revealing that Pet. John Jones is in Australia or that Seaman Tom Brown saw action in the AtlantiC, but there is military information which endangers the lives of American fighting men in stating that Pet. John Jones, 'Company C, 600th Infantry," is in Australia, or Seaman Tom Brown, 'Aboard the U.S.S. Wisconsin,' is in the Atlantic." The Office of Censorship adds: "We ask editors not to publish these troop identifications, and we ask parents and relatives not to reveal them. Don't give the enemy anything that may lengthen the war.' " building human society, in ac- cordance with what the Vicar of Christ teaches, through application of the law of God. "There may come about in good time the conquests of social justice as recommended in the Beveridge plan now being studied in England, and as so authorita- tively advocated at the recent In- ter-American Seminar on Social Studies," E1 Pueblo concludes, "but it must not be ignored that the root of these legitimate and just conquests is in the social doctrine of the Church, the living echo of the imperishable word of Christ." Timely Eternals Rt. Rev. Msgr. Peter M. H. Wynhoven Editor-in-Chief Catholic Action of the South The Society Page The cut lines of the Sunday society page in a metropolitan daily read: "Mrs. John Snodgra of Tulsa, Okla., formerly Mary Jane Studenagel, member of the younger married set, is shown with her dog, Snooky." Opposite, on the same page of the colored supplement: "Mrs. Bernard Brennan and her youngest child, Patricia, are pictured in the attractive garden of their home on Versailles Boulevard." Both women, the one with the pup on her crossed knees, and the other with an adorable child on her lap, look pretty, gracious and healthy; the only are fond of quadrupeds. However, difference being that the one with the child looks healthier, happier and more keenly hope- ful. We do not wish to make hurt- ful or uncalled-for observations. We have the deepest sympathetic regard for married women who are deprived, through God's will. or by sins of the past which are not their own, from the great blessing of motherhood. But, that any one of them should seek to have her picture on the society page with a dog in her lap auto- matically inspires one with the suspicious thought of a selfishly wasted life. A few years ago, we wrote a similar expression. At the time we received several indignant pro- testations, and we were "cruelly" accused of not loving animals. We were much analyzed as a man without a heart devoid of all tender sentiment, for all good men love dogs. If the truth were known, it could be revealed that we are supporting three hounds. We really In spite of 'Nazi reprisals and persecution, the Church in Hol- land under the leadership of Arch- bishop de Jong sent out a fourth and a fifth pastoral, one encourag- ing Catholics to be "armed with truth" against the menace of Naz- ism, and the other forbidding Ca- tholics to enroll in the Nazi Labor Service which, it said, constituted "a very serious threat to our Christian faith and our Christian morals." Archbishop de Jong's latest act, shortly before he fell ill a month ago, was to refuse the Nazi "ap- peasernent" request to have Ca- tholic services broadcast over Ger_ man-controlled Dutch radio sta- tions..

Order from The Guardian that does not take away our in- clination cheerfully to choke a pooch every time we see him caressed, fondled and' babied by a woman. We agree, this temptation is unfair to the :dog; after all, he can't help it. Our murderous in- tentions should be switched. Women's inordinate affection for lap dogs is a sign of a maudlin, weak soul, or, at least, of a certain otherwise=harmless mental aber- ration. That canine-loving ladies have not much sound sense is proved by the fact that they last- ingly attach themselves with dumb devotion to an animal whose average life is only seven years. The adoption of a young elephant would be more satisfactory and consoling, for the adopting parent could be sure of not having to follow his dear remains to the grave, sorrowing and distracted. Elephants live from one hundred to two hundred ),ears. Anbther ad- vantage of taking a pachyderm ,into protective and loving care is that you won't have to worry about your "pet" getting mangy nd flea-afflicted. See what trou- !b]e, anxiety and expense could be saved. Once more, we have an honest and sincere concern for Women whose maternal instinct is deprived of its glorious satisfaction; but we loathe to see them compound for their sad deficit and natural long- ing by showering their heart's de- votion on mute animals.

Albers, a priest of the Dubuque Archdiocese for 61 years. Forty-four of Mon- signor Albers' priestly years were spent as pastor of the Cascade church. Born April 1, 1857, at Steinbild, Hanover, Germany, Father Albers received his classical education in Europe. His philosophical studies were made in Cincinnati and St. Francis Seminary, Milwaukee. He made his theological studies at Loras College here. On August 18, 1931, Father A1- bers celebrated the golden jubilee of his ordination to the priesthood. On November 3, 1934, he was ele- vated to the rank of Domestic Prelate. of so many unfortunates, young and old, could be transformed into 'an existence that would again feel the heart-warming rays of benef- icent sunshine now and then i piercing through the dark clouds of physical want, mental despair and spiritual destitution. A worthy, congenial and saris- fying object of charitable devotion can be chosen by any well-inten- tioned Christian. Dozens of oppor- tunities offer themselves in any- one's life. Practically everybody's relatives, neighborhood or com- munity presents some deserving ease. If one craves for demonstra- tive appreciation in return, one will not fail to find this in a poor orphan who never enjoys the per- sonal interest of anyone and who is saddened by the lack of what a i child craves most; affection. We admit that some childless women, in doing charity, would not find the physical gratification that they enjoy in fondling a dog. But, what kind of woman are they if they prefer the possession of a lap dog to the great virtue of ciarityif they can become all hot and bothered about a beast, meantime coldly ignoring the mis- fortunes and' the unhappy plight of their neighbors? Nobody can be blamed for liking animal pets. Even some of the saints kept them.

(E)--In a distant "Somewhere with the Armed Forces," the Rev. Alexander A. 'Williams, former Chancellor of the Archdiocese of Portland and now an Army chaplain, met up with an Army flier, whom he first met at Paine Field. The flier, a form- er student at Notre Dame Univer- sity and a non-Catholic, made ar- rangements to take instructions to embrace the Faith at their first meeting, but the vargaries of war separated the pair. "I" thought I should never see him again," Father Williams wrote the Most Rev. Edward D. Howard, Archbishop of Portland, "but here I we are together once more and as soon as we met no time was lost in starting over again; he will be baptized this week.

If the society page would publish more photos of people who do construc- tive, beneficial and' neighbor-lov- ing work, instead of constantly parading aimless, selfish women, maybe that would create a greater impression than the sacred words of the Bible.

(El--Although Pope takes no sides in the tern strift throughout the world his statements, in his Message, of the only sort of man organization to which Church can assent, shows how moral view has been challen by the Axis, says the Herald bunc here editorially. "The Pope's emphasis upon dignity of the individual, upon individual's right to the pres ration of a spiritual, and moral life," the editorial clares, "upon the necessity of juridical order and the conce an international law, upon ing 'the excessive of men as if they were masses,' is at almost every the direct antithesis, of the gross philisophy of power politics to which the symbols of the Axis have dedicated. "It could not be otherwise, ob I, ei viously, since the entire Catholi ll view is founded upon the concel of a moral order, while the who q theory of the 'monolithic' A a states was founded explicitly uP a on the rejection of Christian I t well as democratic morality al ;t its trampling under the gun whee e of naked power." tl "The Pope does not 'take side.' [e the editorial adds. "Yet no ol [e who thinks of our world society moral terms can avoid declari s by that fact alone, upon whi, 'e side he must stand in the ba s problems of the age.
