The Vatican Information Office for War Prisoners has established and is maintaining the closest pos- sible contact with American pri- soners during their transitory stay in Italy.

During the first week of March 284 more were added to this list, and 108 were later hospitalized.

"It is the God of Justice Who needs to be preached today," Mon- signor Sheen said. "Modern man's dictums'Religion has nothing to give men'--has been too long un- answered. Now let the answer be given: Certainly, it can give you nothing; but it can take away something--it can take away your diabolical pride, your self-suf-: ficieney, and :thus" make room for morality and peace• "Discounting all political and economic considerations as sec- ondary let us look on this war solely from the point of view of Divine Justice. "We commonly speak of this war as a Crisis. Now our English word crisis is taken from a Greek word which means judgment; and that is just what this war is--a judgment of God. "History, like individuals, has its particular Bnd general judg- ments. Parffcular judgments come at various moments in a na- tion's history, when it works out the full moral qonsequences of its Fort Smith. -- Funeral services were held at Immaculate Concep- tion Church, Fort Smith, on Wed- nesday for Mr. David A.

Anthony Schroeder Catholic U. Stresses Latin American Lit. Washington. (IC)-- In line with the Government's policy of en- couraging a closet" tie between the educational institutions of Latin American nations and the United States, emphasis is being placed at the Catholic University of merica on the preparation of translations of the literature of the southern republic for ultimate use in the Catholic high schools of the nation, the Rt. Ray. Msgr. Patrick J. McCormick, Active Rector dis- flosed. A corollary move is a series of /isits to the Catholic University of America of Latin America edu- cators for addresses, and the ex- tension of courtesies to visit stu- dents from South America who are being brought to the United States under the auspices of the State Department, the U. S. Office of Education and the Office of the Coordinator of Inter-American af- fairs. The more ambitious program now engaged in by Catholic Uni- versity educators involves several projects designed to bring to the attention of students in prepara- tory institutions authentic repro- ductions of Latin American litera- ture. This work is under the gen- eral supervision of Dr. J. Deferrari, Secretary General of the Univer- sity. Dr. Alessandro Crisafulli, of the department of Romance Lan- guages and' Sister Mary Theresa Brentano, O.S•B., are assisting. Of the four volumes in preparation, the one entitled "American Pro- files" is about completed. Included in this research in the literature of the southern repub- lic will be the compilation of an anthology of English translations of Latin-American writings to be supplementary reading material used as a survey course in col- leges or for general reading, with supplementary reading material from authors of the other Ameri- cas for use in the elementary school• Among the Latin-America edu- cators who recently visited the University was Dr. Rafael Garcia Granados, professor of history of the National University of Mexi- co, who addressed the members of the Institute of Ibero-American Studies on "Mexican Feather- work." The past week the under- graduate students of the Univer- sity welcomed Mauricio Amilcar Lopez and Luis Bruno Campoy Gianza, two students from the Na- tional University de Cuyo, of Men- doza, Argentina, who are among the group of Latin-American stu- dents who are touring American educational institutions as guests of the government.
