Cardinal Cushing called on those charged with enforcing and applying ttle law to avoid "hair splitting" distinctions about what is obscene. Instead, he said, they should use "the norms of decen- cy which prevails among repro. sentatives and respectable mem- bers of the community." The Cardinal cited as a "new and depressing" element in the obscenity problem "the effort which is being made in some quarters to minimize the dangers which arise in the prevalence of obscene literature, and to im- pede the application of existing laws . . . "It is this dishonesty casuis- tical evasion of the problem which has emboldened distribu- tors and retailers to offer openly for sale types of literature which only a quarter of a century ago would have fallen under univer- sal condemnation," he said. He added: "Let us not seek to defend the reading of obscene literature as a privilege guaran- teed by our human freedom. We object to censorship as a re- straint imposed upon us from without. Very well--then let us exercise our freedom by im- posing censorship upon our- selves. The most noble exercise of freedom is certainly not the choice of literary filttl." Concordia, Me., (E)--Students of St. Paul College here have been sent unsolicited packets of obscene literature, Dr. Leonard Dierker, St. Louis superintend- ent of schools of the Missouri Synod of the Lutheran Church, has reported. The college enrolls students ranging from 14 to 19 years of age, and is a preparatory semi- nary for Concordia Lutheran Seminary in St. Louis. The un- solicited packets contained pic- tures of unclad women. It was the first reported attempt by smut peddlers to get their ma- terial inside a seminary.

The weekday audiences have been redueed markedly, but the overflow has accumulated, with the result that tile Pope has llad to devote Sundays to visitors despite his wish to leave some time to himself. The last Sunday of May il- lustrates the heavy demands made on the Pope's time. He had indicated that he hoped the Sunday could be kept free. But the influx of visitors was so heavy that he had to give two extraordinary audiences on Sun- day, and he made 14 speeches to special groups. Pope John XXIII has named Msgr. Ferdinand Piontek, dean of the metropolitan chapter of Wroclaw Breslau, titular Bishop of Bares. The new Bishop will continue in his post as capitular vicar charged with administering the German areas of the Wroclaw archdiocese. Another bishop is in charge of the Polish areas. * * * The Knights of Columbus 'ouncils of Newark and Hacken- sack, N.J., were among groups present in a general audience granted by His Holiness Pope John XXIII. Pope John XXlII has named Msgr. Benedict Prlntesis as Archbishop of Athens. He had been Apostolic Administrator of the Athens archdiocese follow- ing the death April 8 of Arch- bishop Marius Macrionitis, S.J., of Athens. Before that Father Printesis was a parish priest. Pope John XXIII has received in audience Bishop Apollinaris W. Baumgartner, O.F.M., Cap., Vicar Apos*o]ic of Gnam; Bish- op James J. Sweeney of Hone- Sta'te Council of the Knights of Columbus pledged its support in the fight against indecent literature at its annual conven- tion here. A resolution united the K. of C. with others in support of the approach being made by the Citizens for Decent Literature. Washington, (E)--A bill speci- fically cited by the Post Office Department as strengthening its hand in the fight on mail order smut has been introduced in the U. S. House of Representatives. The measure, introduced by Rep. Kathryn E. Granahan of Pennsylvania, streamlines the Post Office's Administration pro- cedures in dealing with obscenity distributors, and closes loopholes used by purveyors to escape punishment. The bill was introduced fol- lowing a series of hearings on the problem of mail order obscenity, held by a postal sub- committee of which Rep. Grana- han is chairman. It joins two other measures currently before Congress which are likewise de- signed to tighten the ban on sending pornography through the mails. The Granahan bill has re- ceived the support of numerous representatives of church and civic organizations, in addition to spokesmen for the Post Of- rice. Its basic provisions were endorsed by John C. Hayes, new president of the National Coun- cil of Catholic Men, in testi- mony before Mrs. Granahan's subcommittee. Legion Condemns Cancel Vatican Wedding 'ussels. E  A scheduled Vatican wedding for Prince A!- bert of Belgium has been unex- !)ectedly called off by the Bei- *_uan government.

Pope John XXIII invited the cardinals of the papal court to participate with him in the holy hour in St. Peter's basilica on 'tile Feast of the Sacred Heart ,June 5. It was announced that there must be no applause when the Pope enters the basilica, and everyone must be devoutly recol- lected to join the liturgy. / * * * Pope John XXIII has received in audience Senjin Tsuruoka, lapanese Ambassador to the Iloly See, who is returning to Japan to assume new duties. No successor to the Ambassador has yet been named by the JaPanese government. Pope John XXlll told dele- gates to a convention of the So- dalities of Our Lady that their work is "vast as theworld" and a benefit to society everywhere. He was speaking to 3000 dele- gates in St. Peter's basilica where he celebrated Mass on the occasion of the sodalities' "Universal Day." "To belong to the Sodalities of Our Lady", the Pope said, "means to manifest with greater devotion one's ties with the Church. Offices of the preparatory commission for the forthcoming ecumenical council have been established in the Vatican and will be part of the offices of the Secretariat of State: The commission is composed of the major officials of the var- ious Roman congregations which administer the Church's affairs. It is headed by His Eminence Domenico Cardinal Tardini, Vati-i can Secretary of State. * * * The Sacred Congregation of Rites has considered the causes of the founder of the Xaverian Missionary Fathers and of two Spanish martyrs.

(El- His t{oli- n neo Pgsi!2nJ.O i1 tcXa2hrIOI!ic : !Or t e@ the National Legion of Decency, a letter released here reveals. Sent on the occasion of the legion's silver jubilee, the letter also emphasizes that the import- ance of the agency has not di- minished during its 25 years. The letter was sent on behalf of the Pope by His Eminence Domenico Cardinal Tardini, Vatican Secretary of State, and received here by Bishop James A. McNulty of Paterson, chair man of the U.S. Bishops' Com- mittee on Motion Pictures, Radio and Television. The Holy See's letter calls the organization which rates movies on a moral basis as a "cour- ageous enterprise" and points out that it has been imitated in other countries. "American Catholics c a n therefore be legitimately proud of the achievements they in- spired, and, at the same time, should remain convinced that the necessity of the Legion of Decency has in no way dimin- ished," the letters says. "On the contrary, its import- ance grows even greater at the present time when, sad to say, there are many private persons and even public officials who no longer succeed in distinguish- ing, among the events of life. what things must always and everywhere be considered moral or immoral. "The Sovereign Pontiff, then, paternally encourages the Cath- olics of the United States of :America, exhorting them to re- main unflagging in their support of the legion; to take pains to find out, before attending any spectable (film), the moral classi- fication given by the legion and to be faithful and generous in following its recommendations which are intended solely for the greater good of their souls and for the defence of the noblest values of our civilization." BISHOP (Continued from page 1) of unspecified Chinese laws. Subsequently, the U.S. State Department pressed the Chinese Red regime for information about the Bishop, but learned only that he was "under investi- gation." U.S. officials were told further that the investigation of the Bishop was "an internal Chi- nese matter and none of their business/' ' Before his arrest last October the Bishop had repeatedly as- serted that he would remain in China as long as possible. He said he felt his presence gives moral support to Chinese Cath- olics in resisting communist per- secution. Bishop Welsh went to China in 1918 as a missionary. After his consecration as a bishop in 1927, he served as Superior Gen- eral of the Maryknoll Fathers from 1936 to 1946. He returned to China in 1948, a year before the communists took over the country. The news of Bishop Welsh was received with gtatitude by Cath- olics here, but other informa- tion received indicates that the Reds are intensifying their per- secution of the Church. It was learned here that six Chinese Jesuit priests were ar- rested and imprisoned recently by the communists in Zikawei, a suburb of Shanghai. The priests were reportedly accused of re- fusing to cooperate with the schismatic Patriotic Association of Chinese Catholics. The arrest of the priests brings to 38 the number of Jesuits imprisoned in Red China. These include two members of the hierarchy: Bishop Ignatius Kung, S.J., of Shanghai, arrest- ed in September, 1955, and Bish- op Dominic Tang, S.J., of Can- ton, arrested in February, 1958. Cardinal Installed As Protector Siena, Italy, (E)--Two American bishops were among the hun- dreds who witnessed the instal- lation of His Eminence Domen- ico Cardinal Tardini, Vatican Secretary of State, as Cardinal Protector of the Olivetan Bene- dictine Congregation here.

Sheed Th e produc ing, pr daces tion of a See careful upon end person doe; not exhaust th( infinite r ic h- ness of the di- vine nature. Our Lord tells us of a Thh'd Person. Them is a Spirit, to big, produces the Third. But b this--the ' Second woceeds froln, is produced by, be Virst alone; but lhe Third, he /{ely Spirit, proceeds from ""alher and Son, as they, tom- 'line 1o exl)ress their love;Thus u Ill(, Nicene Creed we"ay of *lira "qui cx patre filioqUe pro. 'odt"--who ln'ocecds from the :';llher and the Son; and in the whom Our Lord will entrust His followers when tte ttimself shall have ascended to the Father. "I will ask the Father and tfe will give you another Paraeletc that Ire may abide with you" (John xiv. 16). The Spirit, like the Word, is a person, lie, not It. "But the Paraclcte, the Itoly Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, tie will teach you all things" (John xiv. 26). As we have already seen there is one huge and instant differ- ence between God's Idea and any idea we may form. Ills is Some- one, ours is only something. With an idea whieh is only something, there can be no inu- tuality: the thinker can know it, it cannot know him: hc can ad- mire its beauty, it cannot admire his; he can love it, it eannot re- turn his love. But God's Idea is Someone, and an infinite Some- one; between Thinker and ](tea there is an infinite dialogue, an infinite interflow. Father and Son love each other, with infinite intensity. What we could not know, if it were not revealed to us, is that they unite to express their love and that the expres- sion is a third divine Person. In the Son, the Father utters ltis self - knowledge; in the tIoly Spirit, Father and Son utter their nmtual love. Their love is infinite; its ex. pression cannot be less. Infi. site love does not express its very self finitely: it can no more produce inadequate ex. pression than infinite knowl- edge can produce an inade- quate Idea. Each gives Him- self wholly to the outpouring of His love for the Other, hold- ing nothing backindeed the very thought of holding back is ridiculous; if they give themselves at all, they can give themselves only totally-- they possess nothing but their totality! The uttered love of Father and Son is infinite, lacks no perfection that they have, is God, a Person, Some- one. As the one great operation of spirit, knowing, produces the Second Person, so the otimr, 10v- w'mtum Ergo we sing :tb Him ",woce(denii ab utroquen to iln who proceeds froni;b0th.

' That is Our Lord's, chosen nalne for ttim: and it 'Is. more than a name: He breathes.upon the auostles as He says "Receive ye the Holy Ghost"; when the Holy Ghost descends upon them at Pentecost, there is at first the russing of a mighty wind, We may wonder Wiy the q'hird I'crson who is the utter- :)nee of the love of Father and Son should be called their Breath. Let us note two things. It is of universal experience that love ha an effect upon the breathing, it is a simple fact that the lover's breath coms faster. And there is a close connection between breath and life -- when we stop breathing, we stop living. U1 the Nicene Creed the Holy Spirit is called "the Lord and giver of life." The link b- tween life and love is not hard to ee, for love is a total sel/- giving, and so a giving of life. On final reminder. We sw how the Second Person is will- in the same nature, as an idea is always within the , thinker's mind. So wiih the Third Per- son; the utterance of love :by Father and Son fills thewhole of their nature, producing ate- other Person, but still within tlae same identical diviue natur. Try to see the nature of G01[ wholly expressed as ThinkS, wholly expressed as Idea, whol, exp,:ess(d as Lovingness. BAKERY m|m II I I III a R II B,g sw,tch to "the b,g IN LITTLE ROCK .....
