Ernst, Announces Plans For Knights Pine Bluff.--The thirty-seventh Annual State Meeting of Ark- ansas State Council, Knights of Columbus will be held in Little Rock on Monday, April 30th. The meeting, this year, will be streamlined and of one day's duration, in order to conform with regulations of War Mobilizer and Office of Defense Transportation, relative to holding of conventions. Each council within the Ark- ansas Jurisdiction, has agreed to reduce its representation at the meeting, by fifty percent in co- operation with the ODT order anc the meeting will be held in Little Rock, which is centrally located and will reduce travel of those attending, to the minimum. The State Officers and Dele- gates will be the guests of Brother Leo J. Krebs of Little Rock, Dis: tract Deputy of the 4th Ark. Dis- trict and Grand Knight of the Little Rock Council, at a buffet supper in his home, Sunday even- ing the 29th.

Free access to Poland for United Nations diplomats and cor- respondents and for representa- tives of Polish cultural and fra- ternal organization abroad, with the right to talk freely with Poles of all political views and report their observations without cen- sorship.

FREEDOMS (Continued from page 1) that two strong essentially incom- patible ways of life will divide the loyalties of men and nations in the political world of tomor- row." These are "genuine democ- racy and Marxian totalitarianism," they add. Declaring that genuine democracy must constantly be on guard and quick to detect and penetrate the camouflage of Marxian totalitarianism, the Bish- ops say: "Democracy's bulwark is reli- gion, and justice is its watchword. We entered this war to defend our democracy. It is our solemn responsibility, in its reconstruc- tion, to use our full influence in safeguarding the freedom of all peoples. This, we are convinced, is the only way to an enduring peace." "We fail to see," the Bishops state, "that tle voting procedure in tile Security Council agreed upon at Yalta is consistent with the sovereign equality of peace- loving nations recognized as basic in the Dumbarton Oaks proposals." They add that it is imperative that the international organization have authority "to make changes in the peace settlements and other i treaties which, in view of past mistakes or changed conditions, may be required." The Bishops say "the nations should adopt an Inter-nation Bill of RiShts, in which men and groups everywhere.would be guar- r00utnt.oal " / 00t-I When war elme /o Poland.
