"By tradition and by structure we be- lieve that it is possible to reconcile the freedom of rights of the in- dividuals with the duties required by the general welfare. We be- lieve in religious tolerance and i the separation of Church and State, but we need to light again the old spirit to meet the challenge of new facts." "The gospel of Christ was to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, comfort the sick and visit those who were in hard luck," said the Vice-President. "He said that treating your neighbor decently was the way to show that you lov- ed God. The neighborhood in Christ's day was a few miles in diameter. Today the airplane has 'made the whole world a neighbor- hood. "The Good Neighbor policy, whether at home or abroad, is a Christian policy. Those who preach isolationism and hate of other nations are preaching a modified form of Prussian Nazism, and the only outcome of such preaching will be war." Nation's Opportunity Throughout .history, he remind- ed, every big nation has been giv- en an opportunity to help itself by helping the world. Thousands of business men have seen this kind of thi'ng happen on a smaller scale and have increased their prosperity by ,generously seizing the opportunity, he declared. "Christianity is not star gazing or foolish idealism," Mr. Wallace said. "Applied on a world-wide scale, it is intensely practical. Bread cast upon the waters does return. National friendships are remembered. Help to starving people Js not oon forgotten." Mr. Wallace said the United States now have the "greatest op- mrtunity that ever came to any )eople" and advocated that "we 'espond to this cry for help" in a :rue Christian spirit.

(E)-- British Catholics are interested in the novena order- ed to be observed throughout Port- ugal to hasten the canonization of Nuno Alares Pereira, for it was Pereira, known as "the Holy Con- stable," who took a large part in framing the 500-year-old alliance between Portugal and Great Brit- fan. Vatican Radio, heard here, an- nounced that the novena was or- dered by the Patriarch of Lisbon, His Eminence Cardinal Cerejeira. Nuno Alvares Pereira won inde- pendence for Portugal in 1411, hav- ing led the country's armieslin re- peated victories against the Cas- tilian invaders. John of Gaunt sent him rein- forcements early in the campaign. The reeisive battle, fought at A1- jubarrota, was won with the help of 500 English archers, and to commemorate the victory a con- vent was built at Batalha, where it still stands. The lasting alliance between Portugal and England was con- firmed by the Treaty of Windsor in the fourteenth century. Nuno Alvares Pereira died in 1931.
