For Relief Of Father Slavin said the "fun- damental threat to the freedom which men must have in order to Distressed English Washington (IC)--A radiogram sent by His Eminence Arthur Car- dinal Hinsley, Archbishop of West- minster, on behalf of the assem- bled Bishops of England and Wales, expressing gratitude to the Hier- archy of the United States for "generous relief of war distress" was received today by the Most Rev. Edward Mooney, Archbishop  of Detroit, and chairman of the administrative board of the Na- tional Catholic Welfare Confer- ence. On various occasions in recent months the Bishops of the United States have made substantial sums available for relief of war suf- ferers in Great Britain under Catholic auspices. The message from the annual assembly of the Bishops of Eng- land and Wales was received as the N. C. W C. Administrative Board of Archbishops and' Bishops was holding its annual spring meeting. The radiogram from Cardinal Hinsley to Archbishop Mooney said: "Please convey Bishops, clergy and people U.iS. A. deep grati- tude for generous relief of war distress of our flock. Now, as al- ways, we stand united with you for justice, Christian liberty and victory of our Faith. Your devoted brothers, Archbishops and Bish- ops of England and Wales in an- nual assembly." 'Week Against Blasphemy' Observed in Canada Rimouski, Que. (E)--The week of April 12 was organized as a "week against blasphemy" by Cathol!c travelling salesmen here and carets were distributed in public pIaces and stores calling attention to the campaign. The cards advised: "Cit- izens, never blaspheme. Blasphemy only brings down evil on you, your family and your country." _ Fentress Mortuary be human has staggered us." Na- tions have become marionettes obeying the slightest wish of the Axis powers," he declared. "Coun- tries have been cruelly sacked by the violence and repine not: only by Hitler hordes but also of the double-crossers within those countries; men made free by God have been reduced to slavery, and even that freedom of spirit which no man nor devil can take from them has surrendered to fear. "Then there is the threat pre- sented to the humanity of man by sin. When fear plunges men and' women into the dull round of the passions they throw away the i last vestige of humanity, for sin chains a man to things beneath him. Held by the bonds of sin, such a man is afraid to enter the house of his own soul, afraid to know the heights to which he can climb. Instead of stretching for the stars he is condemned to the awful terror of struggling in the quicksand. .-- "The virtue which beats off all such threats is Courage. The cow- ard either lives in constant fear or supinely shakes off his human- ity by waving the white flag of submission." Asserting that for Americans "the path ahead will be rough, the ground hilly," Father Slavin said "prayer is the powerful instru- ment which will gird our loins with courage." "The future will be hard," he added, "but prayer will raise our eyes to pierce the gloom and see the figure of Christ stand- ing beside us. His love will pierce the inmost walls of our heart and light them with courage. His en- icouragement will bring new strength to our souls. He and ] , alone will lead us out of the ni of depression and fear to victory over ourselves." Former Texas College Head Dies at Canadian Seminary Toronto. (IC).--The Rev. Thomas Vincent Moylan, C.
