(E)The Pontifical missionary associations, notwith- standing the very grave difficul- ties resulting from present condi- tions throughout the world, have continued--and are continuing-- their activities in behalf of the missions with remarkable profi- ciency.

Members of the General Council of the society resident in Rome hold regular meetings and report that, with the exception of cer- tain nations which are in parti- cularly delicate situations, the work goes on. With the exception of a few mission seminaries actually in the war zone, the customary aid: was rendered by the society as in pre- ceding years; in Africa, 1,564,076 lire; India, 703,146 lire; China, 1,449,657 life; Europe, 54,000 lire; America, 19,750 lire; Japan, 307,- 783 lire; Manchukuo, 161,067 lire; Indo-China, 682,184 lire, Thailand, 24,464 lire; Oceania, 1,980 lire, and Asia Minor, 92,290 lire.

WASIHNGTON LETTER By Elmer Murphy Washington.As the discussion of post-war problems goes on and the task ahead is more clearly outlined in the various formal and informal conferences on the part of representatives of the allied powers, it is becoming increasing- ly evident that a a"return to nor- malcy" is a dead shibboleth. Peace will not mean a return to the conditions which prevailed be- fore the war. Civilization will not be fitted to the old pattern Countries which have been shat- tered by the impact of war will ndt go back to where they left off. As in the case of a city'de- vastated by fire, the world will not be rebuilt along traditional lines. There is no "normalcy" to go back to. The destruction has been too complete. Whole peoples have been uprooted. Countless mil- lions have been set adrift.

BAUM & COMPANY said, in a letter to Senator Lucas, "a very serious situation exists in many parts of this world because of the policy so viciously prose- cuted by the Nazi Government to ersecute religious, national and )olitical groups who have incur- ed their wrath." Former Governor Lehman has been discussing with British lead- ers the problem of relief, one of the first that will be encountered when the fighting ends. No responsible official in Wash- ington clings to the idea that this grave situation can be met by re- sorting to pre-war methods and getting the world back into its ac- customed groove. A new pat- tern must be drawn to fit the new conditions. New ideals, moral as well as economic, must be evolved and applied at the peace table. New social relationships must be established. Some of the ques- tions now being asked are: What is the responsibility of the victor- ious countries toward the Poles and the Greeks and' the Jews? What rights of the small and backward nations are to be recog- nized? What place is organized labor to occupy in the reconstruc- ed world? How are the stricken peoples to be fed until they are REV.

What channels of trade must be opened to enable all countries to raise their standard of living? How s education to be revived and purg- ed of the noxious growth of Nazi l and Fascist teaching? As Secretary Hull said', in his address to the Pan-American Union: "In this great drama, amid the clash of arms, it is more important than ever for us all to: keep before mankind the prin- ciples to which we have dedicated ourselves. 'Kne success of the in- ter-American family of nations ests on observance of the prin- ciples of the sovereignty, equality, law, order, justice, morality, non- intervention, friendliness and co- operation. Only by this highway of freedom has the life of a free community been assured to the Americas. Only by cooperating in efforts along like lines can we hope effectively to contribute to the attainment of world peace and world security." How the philosophy expressed iby Secretary Hull in broad' outline can be applied to conditions that will prevail at the close of the war and how the necessary coopera- tion can be brought about cannot be determined now according to the views of Washington officials. As yet the surface of the stupen- dous task 'ahead has been only scratched. But the general con- clusion alSpears to be that it can- not be done merely by surrender- ing old ideas and following old precedents. In this respect the : world that will finally emerge out of the holocaust of war will, in fact, be a new world in which new or untried social, moral and economic ideas will have a recog- nized place.

Hicks, which de- nounces the birth control move- ment as a menace to the nation, has been printed in the Congres- sional Record. Senator David I. Walsh, of Massachusetts, had it inserted in the Record after re- ceiving unanimous consent of the Senate to do so.

Britlshl West Afrtcaf national Catholic weekly, the arti- cle relates that if the United States should have to fight anoth- er war in 1980, the nation's avail-I able manpower, so acute in the present war, will be 399,000 less than it is today, unless the present population trend is reversed by a rising birth rate or by immigra- tion. Mr. Hicks based his calculations made by the National Resources Planning Board, which estimates have been confirmed, by the pres- ent registration for military ser- vice, and by the Scripps Founda- tion for Population Problems. According to these estimates, Mr. Hicks wrote: Mr. Hicks warned that the "de- cline and fall of every great nation in history was heralded by a fall- ing birth rate, such as we already have in the United States, and by decrease of population we shall most certainly have. unless we start to do something about the decline in child-bearing." As to population density, Mr. Hicks, a collateral descendant of Whitehead Hicks, first Mayor of New York, and of Gen. Wood- htfll, of the Long Island Army of the Revolution, pointed out that in this country there are only 44.2 persons for each square mile while in Germany (Austria and Sudetenland included) there are 352.3 persons and in England, 742.2 persons.

The Rev. John S. Spence, who preached the sermon at the Mass, declared it took "bombs and t0/pedoes from pow- erful foes to'teach,us that isola- tionism and individualism are a pure prelude to destruction." Mr. Fahy asserted this country must be guided by the knowledge of fits past and present exper- mnce in its !'friendships with oth- er peoples in international collabo- ration for peace as we have join- ed them in war." He declared that "defeatism with respect to an enduring peace would' be as unfortunate as defeatism in the face or aggression." "The very necessity of our as- sumption of tremendous respon- sibility with our allies in destroy- ing force and injustice wielded by the aggressors inevitably demands the corollary assumption of an obligation to restore and then maintain amity and justice through international cooperation in friendship," Mr. Fahy declared.

"LOOK FOR THE GIRL ON THE LABEL" tern.on,' our correspondent writes. 'During the week the members had received a list of Catholics whom they were to visit. The names listed represented Catho- lics who were lukewarm; others who were in need 'of special en- eouragment, and still others that :we had difficulty in locating. Visits from fervent local Catholics I l are very worthwhile and useful in strengthening the faith of weaker members and in securing needed information. Therefore our young sodalists, sacrificing much time and effort, have glad, ly undertaken the responsibility of visiting these people.'

He is of the Ijaw tribe of hich the Catholic catechist, Francis Bekawura, is king. Un- der Mr. Ikoli's leadership this African movement, built upon the sturdy foundation of Catholic teaching, promises to become one of the great bulwarks for the fu- ture of the Nigerian people. "Catholic Action provides per- haps the biggest outlet for the exuberance of youth, for it uti- lizes the surplus energy in con- structive tasks. Youth is fear- less, enthusiastic, imaginative possesses the potentialities of greatness if directed along proper channels. Catholic Action, to which the young in mission lands will be trained physiclly and spiritually, is the best guarantee for post-war planning. Therefore the Society for the Propagation of the Faith requests the prayers of the faithful during the month of May for this intention." t 7175 For The Best In LAUNDRY & CLEANING Have your laundry and cleaning handled the LITTLE ROCK way and get the advantage of better work at prices no higher.
