No Room For Leisure In War, Students Told Washington. (E)  Asserting "there is no place for leisure in a war economy," Mrs. Eva Hansl of the War Manpower Commission found a receptive audience of members of tile Association of Women Students of the Catholic University of America when she addressed them in the special series of talks arranged by Dr. Eugenic A. Leonard, dean of wo- men, for the group of more than 500 feminine students at the in- stitution. Pointing out that the govern- ment and private industry are urgently in need of women skilled in the sciences' and those who could do unskilled work to re- place men for the armed services, Mrs. Hansl stressed the fact that with some additional knowledge Catholic University women stu- dents could usefully fill places in the war economy. "You will face a disjointed world; a world of anxiety, grief and sorrow to which you will have to bring all you can muster of courage, serenity, humor, wis- dom and spiritual strength," Mrs. Hansl said. "But one thing will not be diffieultand that is to find work, especially as you have been guided so wisely and train- ed so well in technical fields here at Catholic University."

President Roosevelt called the Committee into existence with an Executive Order in which he re- affirmed "the policy of the United States that there shall be no dis- crimination in the employment of any person in war ind'ustries or government by reason of race, creed, color or national origin." The order calls upon all Govern- ment departments and agencies to see that there is no such discrim- ination with their jurisdictions; directs them to require in all fu- ture contracts that the contracting !party will obligate himself not to make such discriminations in hiring personnel for the Govern- ment work; authorizes the Com- mittee on Fair Employment Prac- I tice to formulate the policies i necessary to carry out this order; and empowers the Committee to "recommend to the Chairman of the War Manpower Commission appropriate measures for bringing about the full utilization and training of manpower in and for war production without discrim- ination because of race, creed, col- or or national origin." \\;, Group Has Broad Powers The Committee is empowered to "receive and investigate com- plaints of discrimination forbidden by this order," and to 'conduct hearings, make findings of fact, and take appropriate steps to ob- tain elimination of such dis- crimination."

Opinion As To Effect Of Stalin Dissolution Of Comintern Clouded VJASHINGTON LETTER By Elmer 1Vurphy Washington. {E)Only time and the conduct of the Communists themselves will tell whether there is any real significance to the dis- solution of the Communist Third Internatiorml (Comintern) an- nounced from Moscow, in the opinion of observers here. Since it was the avowed purpose of the Comintern to promote the Communist resolution in countries outside of Russia, it is pointed out, the real test of its dissolution will be whether the action has any effect on the activities of Com- munists in the United States, France, England, Mexico and else- where, There already have been enthusiastic comments in this country on the import of the dis- solution of the Comiltern. How- ever, the best qalified com- mentator-r--Earl Browder, General Secretary of the Communist Party of the United States---has said it will have no effect at all. On the very day that American newspapers carried the announce- ment of the Comintern's reported dissolution, they carried this state- ment by Browder: "The proposal of dissolution of the Communist International, made by the presiding committee of that organization, does not af- fect organizationally the statute of the Communist Party of the i United States, because since 1940 the Communist Party of the Unit- ed States of America has main- tained no affiliation outside ttle borders of the United States.

The Daily Worker, national or- gan of the Communist Party in the United States, said editorially, following the announcement from M.oscow, that "revolutionary so- :cmlism will not din," despite the dissolution of the Comintern. Counseling Americans "to tern- :per their enthusiasm" until the full import of the announced dis- solution of the Comintern be- comes known, an editorial in, the Philadelphia Inquirer says cer- tainly the Comintern, body and spirit of world revolution, has caused distrust of the Moscow Government in many countries, including our own, and in con- siderable measure has prevented the United Nations from getting closer together." M a r k Sullivan nationally- known Capital observer, said the action of Moscox¢'-about the Com- intern "is like its action about re- ligion a Year and a half ago." Re- calling the assertions in Septem- ber, 1941, "that the Russian gov- ernment would grant 'freedom of worship' to Poles under Russian rule, would set up a Catholic church and a Jewish synagogue in Moscow for them," M,. Sullivan said "the whole incident, includ- ing the American President's pat- ness with an article of the Russian constitution, had a faint sugges- tion of planned intention to make America fee kindly toward Rus- sia." Several commentators asserted flatly that the Corptntern had out- lined its usefuln&s, and that its dissolution was no sacrifice, and no more than should have been expected.

Retreats At St. John's Cancelled This Summer Little Roek.Because of the war time restrictions on food prin- cipally, it is necessary according to announcement made this week to call off retreats both for men and women at St. John's Home Missions Seminary this summer. The Most Reverend Auxiliary Bishop, director of women's re- treats in the Diocese for many years, and the Rev. Patrick M. Lynch, chaplain of laymen's re- treat movement, have studied the problems with the rector of the Seminary, and hesitated to make the cancellation until every pos- sible arrangement had been look- ed into. The importance of the move- ment and its success over past years made the decision a ser- ious step, but war conditions have made it necessary. It is particularly stressed that the cancellation is only tempor- ary, and that renewed vigor and interest will be carried out in opening the movement again next yeao
