Islam And War In North :r/ca Reveals Influ,000000ce Of Mohammenda0000i:;m In Past a vast military area, and speculates about the fate of North Africa after the war. Neither can he forget the glory of this great land in days gone by. "Under the sand lay buried the wealth and art of three civilizations," he writes. "I had seen the great city of Leptis Magna, first Punic, then Roman, and finally Byzantine, which Italian spades.,have recently tin- covered." . Italian engineers under Mar- shal Balbo were able to work wonders, the writer goes on. Eucalyptus and wattle wre plant- ed and tended with great care to bind and hold the shifting sands. Artesian wells were drilled, in some cases a quarter of a mile deep, tarred roads were laid, cot- tages and other buildings erect- ed, and colonists established on the land. Mussolini undertook all this work, the writer points out, first from reasons of vanity and then of aggression. "Is there no one in these days," he asks plain- I tively, "who will undertake crea-I tive work from an innocent me-I five. To me it would seem to[ argue a lack of ambition in our I civilization, if we let these colonies I go back to sand." Brailsford wonders whether all of North Africa, from the Atlantic to Egypt, might not be consider- ed "as a single problem" after the war. For "here is a vast territory that was once Rome's granary . . . Today it is our militarism which eats up the resources that might reclaim it." The noted historian, Theodore Mommsen, is his author- ity for the statement that the Ro- mans kept the peace of North Africa with a single legion (12,- 000 men) and 15,000 native aux- iliaries. Thus with a tenth of the manpower maintained in North Africa by Spain, France and before the present war the Ro- mans defended at least ten times the wealth existing there today. "Is it beyond us," Brailsford asks in conclusion, "in a co-operative effort, with all our science, to re- store what Rome built?" By no neans. Only two things are neces- sary for the accomplishment of this objective: irrigation and markets for the grain produced. But why should the author neg- lect to mention the chief cause responsible for the buried civiliza- tion of which he speaks? After the fall of the Roman empire its provinces along the southern shore of the Mediterranean did not col- lapse. And neither the Vandals Arians as they were---during the century of their rule, nor the forces of Byzantium brought ON HOME FRONT When the dream of an Italian empire died with the surrender of Tripoli, the queue of mourners was not long. But there were some who. observed with a trace of sorrow that apart from the military significance of the event, it was lamentable that one of the greatest reclamation and colonization projects of our days must now end. Such a man is H. N. Brailsford, one of England's leading publi- cists. In the 'New Statesman,' of London, he describes the Italian accomplishments in what is today about the ruin of civilization in this area. But whSn Moham- mendanism rose and advanced into Africa, the doom of the northern part of the "dark" continent was sealed. For as Islam's conquer- ing hordes overran this section, even extending their  raids into Europe by way of Spain, culture was. thrown back. One by one the old Roman provinces succumb- ed, the witnesses of their civlliza-, tion being gradually covered ut) by the relentless sands of the de- sert. Another proof that Mo- hammendanism is incapable of sustaining, or promoting even established cultures. In the nine- teenth century Spain and France in particular attempted to regain the lost foothold in North Africa, but it has been a long and pain- fully slow process. The war is evidently now de- stroying much of what has been laboriously accomplished during these past hundred or so years. "In North Africa, once a province of Christendom," writes James Devane in the 'Irish Rosary,' "I look at Italians, Germans, French and English slaughtering each other, and over the narrow waters of the Middle Sea a confused mas- sacre of Russians, Italians, Ger- mans, English, Greeks, Poles, Czechs, Dutch, Belgians, French." Thinking on such things and that "it was but yesterday, as history is counted, that Islam ruled Greece and the Balkans, and that it was but a few hundred years back since the Muezzin called the faith- ful to worship from the spires of Budapest, and that Mustafa's horsemen were riding in outer streets of Vienna," Devane qu's- tions fearfully: "is it far wrong in saying that this is no ordinary war? It is the suicide of a civil- ization, of Christendom. And per- haps the return of Islam." And there precisely is the flaw in Brailsford's statement. Neg- lecting to account for the original does not take into account the collaspe of northern Africa, the threat of Mohammendanism. It is by no means impossible that af- ter the war, when so much of the world wll be weary and war born, the Islamic nations will step in to usurp some of the spoils. In any event the slender hold which Europe has upon North Africa is relaxing in the war. It may be surrendered completely to Mohammedanism later. Such at least is a possibility. CV Service.

Armed Forces Take Priests At' Rate Of Two A Day New York. (E) -- During the month of February chaplains were placed on duty with the armed forces at the rate of slightly more than two a day, the Most Rev. Wil- l[an T. McCarty, C.SS,R., Military Delegate, announced at the Mill- tary Ordinariate. Of the 60 chaplains assigned to duty in the 28 days of the month, 32 entered service with the Army, 25 with the Navy and three with the Merchant Marine, Bishop Mc- Carty said. While military regula- tions forbid the release of figures showing the total number of priests on active duty as chaplains with the armed forces, Bishop McCarty said the Ordinariate was permitted to make public the nttraber assign- ed during a single month. More chaplains are urgently needed in all branches of the arm- ed forces, the Bishop said. Mthe of 13 Returning From Ma! Daily Attendant 30 Years Chicago.

Four of her sons are serving with the colors. Dutch Bishop's Pastoral Makes Deep Impression New York. (E}--The Joint Pas- toral Letter of the Hierarchy of the Netherlands recently read in all churches has created a deep impression among the people of that invaded country, according to advises received by the Nether- lands Information Bureau here. The Pastoral denounced the harsh treatment of both Christians and Jews. Particularly it singled out the draft ,of Dutch youth for forced labor in Germany and exhorted the Catholic laity to refuse to co- operate with German war meas- ures which were contrary t 9 the dictates of their conscience. A statement Issued by Anton Mussert, puppet Nazi leader, in dicated that the so-called National Socialists in Holland themselves were apprehensive over certain of the German measures. "We Dutchmen," he was quoted as saying, "dislike the raiding of universities and high schools and the arrests of students. If I had been consulted, naturally I would have tried to prevent it. There are many things in Holland which hinder us National Socialists as much as dissidents, but it is es- sential to bear our burdens cheer- fully because we must fight against B01shevism."
