i  i!  !} i  PAGE SIX Albany Crusade On Filth-in-Print Very Thorough Albany, March 11. (E). N The Albany plan  the "Crusade to Clean Up the Filth-in-Print" sponsored by The Evangelist, Al- bany diocesan weekly--is a well organized and painstaking attempt to root out the evil of offensive reading matter. Possessing the warm indorse- ment and hearty support of the Most Rev. Edmund F. Gibbons, Bishop of Albany, the Crusade has received the high praise of Mayor John Boyd Thacher af Al- bany, who has pledged the whole- hearted cooperation of all public officials under his command. The Albany plan seeks the cooperation of the Superintendent of Schools, ministers and ministerial associa- tions, the Y. M. C. A., the Y. W. C. A., civic organizations, frater- nal organizations, American Le- gion groups, and neighborhood and merchants' associations. The Crusade functions in co- operation with ,the District At- torney's office, but it is made clear that its efforts are not limited to publications subject to the penal His Eminence Justine Cardinal 1 Seredi, Prince-Primate of Hun, r gary, who is the spiritual head of the committee on preliminary arrangements for the 34th Inter- national Eucharistic Congress, to be held at Budapest, May 25 to SO, 1938. Pilgrimages to the Conol gress are being organized in' :knany of the archdioceses and • Oceses of the.United S ttu code. The Crusade hopes by'per-[I suasion and education to reach[I Catholic Union those publications which keep just ii within the law but are offensive [I of Arkansas the morals of youth. Initial Step Is Meeting The initial step in the Albany plan is a meeting attended by at least two representatives of each parish society and Catholic organi- zation of men and women• At this meeting the necessity for the Cru- sade is emphasized, and each or- ganization is asked to supply suf- ficient workers for the canvassing teams. The number of workers is regulated by the area to be covered. In some instances the organization is on a parish basis; in others the unit area is a zone based on political sub-divisions, or other boundaries• High school students are brought into the work to make surveys among the news- dealers. Not only is their work of specific usefulness but it also makes the youths "Crusade- minded." As soon as possible after the initial meeting, the representatives of the participating organizations call a meeting of volunteer work- ers. The workers are then or- ganized into teams with aggressive captains or leaders, and each team is made responsible for a section of the unit area. At this meeting there are distributed tothe workers cards bearing the names and ad- dresses of the newsdealers and a place for remarks, a pledge to be signed by the newsdealers, and the list of publications deemed ob- jectionable. For the present this list is not being published. The cooperation of the press is sought in furthering the Crusade. It is made clear that the suc- cess af the Crusade depends upon sustained interest and that, there- fore, meetings of the workers, of the Vigilance Committee, of the Permanent Committee should be held frequently. Present Anti- Catholic Petitions In Argentina Buenos Aires, March 4. (D.A Methodist Congress just held here concluded its sessions by address- ing a petition to the Minister of Justice and Public Instruction pro- testing against "religious instruc- tion in schools and educational Institutions and divers civil ac- tivities of the country on the part of the Roman Catholic Church." The petition invokes an article of the Constitution which prom- ises freedom of conscience and re- ligion. In several rovinees the Cru.- cifix and teaching of catechism have been introduced and the Church in endeavoring to bring about the teaching of religion in the schools of the Capital. Rt. Rev• Msgr.

GOOD FRIDAY CLOSING Cards are being printed for placing in the doors of all the stores that will promise to close from 12 lqoon to 3 P. M. Reports reaching me from various cities and towns augur well for this movement. We have made arrangements with The Guardian to print the names of all stores who promise to close their doors for these three hours when Our Lord hung on the Cross for us on Calvary's Heights and thereby redeemed us. This list will be published every week from now on and I hope that the final week will show thousands i of names; so, please send in your: list of ndes and cards will be sent to you, which please hand to the merchants a day or two before Good Friday. These cards are to be picked up that evening or the next day and the merchants thanked for his cooperation• Have not as yet received full information on the new "League for Clean Reading" but I hope to receive this real soon so I can publish same in The Guardian• I understand it is a national or- ganization, similar to the Legion of Decency and its aim is to clean up the country's news stands as the Legion of Decency did the moving picture industry. A pledge is taken from every Catholic, and well-thinking Pro- testants and Jews are asked to join tn the movement as they did in: the Legion of Decency campaign. All news stands will be notified to desist from selling and display- ing lewd and lascivious books and pamphlets and those dealers com- plying with the request will re- ceive an emblem to place over their door or stand for all to see that they will not handle this trashy and filthy literature• Here is hoping that this move- ment will go over like the Legion of Decency campaign. Respectfully Yours, T. J. ARNOLD. Trade Board Hits 'Hygiene' Product Washington, March 14. (E). The Federal Trade Commission has ordered the distributor of a &o-called hygenic preparation for women to desist from making cer- tain representations, including the following: that the preparation has the approval of the American Medical Association, physicians generally, and the American Birth Control League; that the dis- !tributor is connected with the Birth Control League; that the preparation may be used with safety and without deleterious ef- fects by women generally, and that tlte respondent owns or op- erates a laboratory where the pro- duct is manufactured. Nationalist Spain NOTICE It is necessary for items in- tended to be published in The Guardian to reach the office by Tuesday at noon. Copy re- ceived after this time can hard- ly be expected to appear in The Guardian issued of the same week.

(E).--Just returned from Europe, where he was the guest of General Fran- cisco Franco on a two weeks' tour of Nationalist Spain, Ellery Sedg- wick, Editor of The Atlantic Monthly, is warm in his praise of conditions in that part of the Iberian Peninsula• "I was amazed at conditions in 'White Spain,' " Mr. Sedgwick said. "Of all the countries I saw in Europe it was the most pros- perous. Everything was well or- dered and everyone appeared : contented. Their administration seemed perfect and you would hardly know there was a war going on until you got near the front lines. Franco has an ambiti- ious program of slum clearance and the food supply was extra- ordinary. Prices were cheaper than in 'Red Spain.' "They are financing the war by exports. The White Government takes the olive oil, tin and other products, guaranteeing the pro- ducers a certain price. Then they ' sell them in London and other places and keep the profit. They aren't' contemplating any new taxes. "I don't think there is any doubt that Franco is winning the war. It would seem that the Whites could get along indefinite- ly." Mr. Sedgwick said the number of Italian troops in Spain "has been greatly exaggerated," and that he saw "a lot of German engineers, all" in mufti, but no actual soldiers in the line•" SEES UNITED STATES CAN DO NOTHING BUT WATCH (Continued from Page 1) point, upon further moves on the diplomatic chess board, with Italy holding the strategic position. That the seizure of Austria may produce a rift in the Nazi-Fascist ranks is regarded as a possibility• i However friendly Mussolini might have been toward Hitler as long as he kept on his own side Of the fence, it is regarded as quite possible that he will not welcome Hitler as a next door neighbor in Austria. Concern Over Cultural And Political Ideas Observed Although the United States must assume the role of interest- ed bystander, concern over the forceful extension of Nazi cul- ture and political ideas is ap- parent in Washington. It is as- sumed that Austrian soil will be harrowed for the planting of Nazi' philosophy• This is indicated by the promptness with which the Catholic mayor of Vienna was dis- placed when Hitler's agents took control• There is a possibility, according to some observers, that Hitler may pursue a less rigorous anti-religious policy in Austria than he has in the Reich proper, at least until the Nazi position in Austria has been consolidated, but this is remote. For centuries, Austria has up- held the Catholic traditions of Europe• Likewise, since the war it has clung tenaciously to its democratic ideals. The latter have gone by the board under Ger- man compulsion. It is taken as a foregone conclusion that in due time the former will be dealt with as ruthlessly. But a paganiz- ed Austria made to conform to the made-to-order Nazi cultural philosophy would hardly be a welcome neighbor to Catholic Italy. Nazi Coup Has Not Improved Hitler's Position Whether the Nazi frontiers in central Europe are to go on widen- ing, or the democratic countries with the support of Mussolini, are to attempt to eail a halt, is a question that sooner or later must be answered, and Italy is in a position at the moment, to say what the answer shall be. If Washington sets the pattern for public thinking, it may be assumed that the Nazi coup has not improved Hitler's position in the perspective of American pop- ular opinion. Hitler Has Preached upremacy of Nazl-lsm The fact that there are in South America fairly compact settle- ments of Germans assumes, in the light of the Austrian coup, added significance• This has afforded further evidence of Hitler's de- termination to force upon other It is well to speak little and listen much. countries the principle that Ger- QUALITY CLOTHES AT REASONABLE" PRICES man citizens have a right to ally ......
