PAGE TWO THE GUARDIAN, MAY 15, 1942 Nazi Effort To Control Education of Austrian Youth Se Prelate Deplores Attack On Religious Education Washington, (E)--New evidence of the concerted effort of Nazi authorities to destroy the Church in Germany by eliminating her influence over the young appeared' in a pastoral letter on religious instruction by the Most Re,. Sig- ismund Waltz, Prince-Archbishop of Salzburg, Australia, the text of which has reached this country. The See of Salzburg is one of the oldest, most important and most influential in all Germany and Austria. While many of  the priests who formerly gave religious instruction in the schools have been barred from teaching, the school authori- ties have proposed, Archbishop Waitz revealed, that religious in- struction be given by lay teachers, who, he pointed out, would be under the sole control of the Nazi school board. WOMEN (Continued from page 1) the Very Re,. Msgr. Jos. A. Galla- gher and the Very Re,. Msgr. John J. Healy. Chaplains to Bishop Fletcher were the Rev. Richard McCauley and the Rev. Edward R. Maloy. Also seated in the sanctuary were: Rt. Re,. Msgr. Herman H. Wernke, V.F., Very Re,. Msgr. John B. Scheper, the Re,. Joseph M. Burns, the Rev. Louis J. Jane- sko, the Rev. Amos Enderlin, the Re,. John E. Murphy and the Re,. Joseph N. Doyle. The Most Reverend Auxiliary was honor guest at the noon lunch- eon at the Marion Hotel. Father O'Connell acted as toastmaster in- troducing those present at the speakers table and all members of the clergy. Catholic women received a cord- ial welcome to the eity of Little Rock by Mayor Chas. E. Moyer, ,who said: "I don't know what we would do in this country, if we had no such organizations". Musical selections on the lunch- eon program included two vocal selections by Corp. Ed Rutkofsky of Camp Robinson, who played his own accompaniment, and Rita Raymond Brown's rendition of "Open Thy Blue Eyes", a French song, and "Let My Song Fill Your Heart". Accompaniment was by Ruth E. Jansen. The challenge to today's Catho- lics 'is a challenge to supply the fibre of Civilization, said the Re,'. Patrick M. Lynch, of St. John's Home Missions Seminary, principal speaker at the luncheon, who re., minded' the women that Catholics have the answer to today's chaos. "War in the 40's", the speaker called a natural consequence of "the riotious 20's and the depres- sive 30's". Catholics have the obligation to bring back to Rome those who left the Church, the backbone of Civili- zation, Who gave us "sanctity of the home, faithfulness of husbands and wives, purity of children, guarantee to the unborn and just- ice to our neighbor". The great heresy "substituted psychiatry for confession, relativ- ity for reality and private inter- pretation for papal infallibility, turning their backs on the Pontiff, the successor of the fisherman Peter, calling him "too slow". Calling on the women not to hoard the good which they have in their religion, Father Lynch ex- claimed: "I thank God America has a chance to take up the cross and suffer!" Rt. Re,. Msgr. Jas. P. Gaffney," Rector of St. John's, and recently elected Chairman of the Catholic Committee of the South, outlined for luncheon guests the organiza- tion of the CCS and its aims to better social, religious and econom- ic conditions of the South. His Excellency, Bishop Fletcher, honor guest, lauded the women for their enthusiastic response to his request for aid for the Catho- lic fraternity'at Fayetteville. He called upon Catholics to assist in caring for the problem of the mass migration of Catholics due to de- fense activities. Speaking on "Patience, Perser- verance and Peace", the Very Re,. Msgr. Jos. A. Gallagher, Vice- Rector of St. John's Seminary, charged the women: "As Catholic women, all eyes are upon you w you are the Church's dignity ..... "Tanks, guns and even patriot- ism can not win this war", said Msgr. Gallagher. "It must be won by moral as well as physical stamina". The importance of Catholic edu- cation was urged upon the women by Msgr. Gallagher, who com- pared modern Catholics who send their children to secular schools to those early Christians who, for material and social reasons, denied Stating that he had refused to accept this proposal and had in- structed pastors to arrange re- ligious instruction periods in the churches. Archbishop Waitz called upon his people not only to send their children to church faithfully for instruction but to "let every household now become a sanctuary of God." Primatial See Created in the sixth century and made a Metropolitan See in the eighth, the See of Salzburg holds a special place in German Catholic life. Up to the time of Napoleon the Archbishop of Salzburg has an independent prince of the Empire and for that reason still holds to- day the titles of Primate of Ger- many a n d Prince-Archbishop. These traditions and the import- ance of Salzburg for all German- speaking Catholics led to the choice of Salzburg as the site of the Catholic University of St. Albert the Great, founded by the Aus- trian Government some years be- fore the Anschluss. Groundless Bans Writing on October 15, 1941, and directing that the letter be read from all pulpits on the fol- lowing Sunday, October 19, Arch- bishop Waitz revealed that near the end of the last school year "a great many of the parish priests in the Province Of Salzburg had already been deprived of the au- thorization to impart religious in- struction, with no reason given for the action," and that in a notice issued the previous week "these groundless school bans were not, as we had hoped, retracted, but instead new difficulties were added" through the order that lay teachers were to take over relig- ious instruction. "Through the ages," His Excel- lency wrote, "even the religious instruction given by carefully trained and consecrated priests has been superintended by the Bishop. Would these measures of prudence be superfluous with lay teachers or religion? Is there no danger that wrong, aye anti-Chris- tian theories might, be sown in this way in the inexperienced hearts of our youth? "And thus the way would be opened for the onslaught of all kinds of heresy and' unbelief-- the more so in view of the fact that the beginning of this year the School Board in the Province of Salzburg issued an in- I struction to the teachers which began with the following sentence: 'The goal of National Socialist edu- cation is fixed unalterably: Ger- man youth must be freed of any ecclesiastical instruction or in- fluence whatsoever.' "The same School Board that took that stand with regard to the Catholic religion has sole au- thority to appoint teachers of re- ligion and to control the teaching," Archbishop Waitz continued. "Any rational person can see how im- possible such conditions would be. "Dear, loyal, Catholic people, I am an old man and do not know when I may be called before the tribunal of God, I do not want to come before Him with a con- i science burdened with guilt. When I was consecrated Bishop the book of the Gospel was laid on my shoulders as a burden from God for me to preach and have others i preach. Today we Catholics must often yield to physical force. When temporal things art at stake, we may suffer in silence. But where our faith is at stake there can be no yielding; we must stand firm or die."

Observe Mission Sunday of the Sick Knights of Columbus State News Prayer By Those Sufferingto AidApostolic Cause New York, {l)--The National Office of the Society for the Prop- agation of the Faith today urged all the faithful to say special pray- ers on Mission Sunday of the Sick, which is observed on Pentecost, May 24. The prayer for Mission Sunday of the Sick which carries an in- dulgence of 500 days, is suggested by the Society as a particular means of observing the day, It is as follows: "O Jesus, Adorable Head of the Church, Who didst not dis- dain to associate Thine Own Sufferings with those of Thy faithful, accept the offering of mine. Unite them to Thy passion and death, so that, crucified with Thee, I may be made an instrument of sal- vation. In a special manner I offer Thee the pain I suffer this day for the conversion to Thy gospel of the unbeliev- ing peoples of the world, for the return to the true Church of those children separated from Her through heresy and schism, and for the visible head of the Catholic Church, our Holy Father. Give him light and strength to lead all mankind to eiertml salvation. Grant me, O Lord, the cour- age to carry my cross today and always with calm resig- nation, so that one day I may be glorified with Thee in Thy eternal Kingdom, Amen. "Our Lady of Lourdes help the sick, enlighten the heathen, and bless the missionaries," St. Edward's Mercy Hospital Graduates Largest Class Fort Smith--The 34th gradu- who completed training in Febru- ation from St. Edward's Mercy Hospital school of nursing had been announced to take place in the auditorium of the nurses' home, but the 800 invitations sent out by the twenty-seven graduates necessitated a change of location, and the exercises were staged in the larger auditorium of the Im- :maculate Conception school, and even there, standing space was :axed. The program opened with pro- ;ession of" nurses moving on to the stage to the strains of "The Priests' March", from Athalia, played by the orchestra. The Rev. Paul F. Desmond gave the invo- cation. Musical numbers were from the nurses' glee club--"Song of Love" from Blossom Time, by Romberg and "Cicibiribin." by Pestalozza.

The 9rogram closed with the singing of "The Star Spangled Banner." This class of 27 is the largest in the history of the school. All have passed the examinations of the state board. Miss Lois Marie Highfill, class president, made the mcond highest grade in these examinations.

Five now are at an Indiana camp. This class comprise three groups, those Noted Priest-Journalist Of Canada Retires Quebec, (N]) -- The Very Re,. Canon J. A. Chamberland, Director General of 'L' Action Sociale Cath- olique' of the Archdiocese of Quebec, which work includes the direction of the Catholic daily newspaper, 'L'Action Catholique,' has resigned after 10 years of service. Announcing that he was ac- cepting the resignation with re- gret, His Eminence Rodrigue Cardinal Villeneuve, Archbishop of Quebec, paid tribute to the work of Canon Chamberland, the man- ner in which he had taken this work in hand at a time when it was faced with financial and other difficulties and brought it up to its present status.
