(NC Photos) - Grateful LITTLE ROCK 1945 Bishops' Recommendations Reflected In Peace Charter For Papal Relief Vatican City. 00(Radio).--En- thusiastic and impressive demon- strations of devotion and gratitude to His Holiness Pope Pius XII everywhere greeted the Vatican Mission sent by the Holy Father to render every possible aid to those millions of former internees in Austria and southern Germany who are awaiting repatriation al- ter yelirs of confinement under miserable conditions. This was the report brought back by the Rt. Rev. Msgr. Walter IS. CarroLl, an American priest at- tached to the Vatican Secretariate !of State, who was charged with the organization and direction of this Papal relief work. A motor- cade of ambulances and trucks laden with supplies set out from Milan a fortnight ago, and now Monsignor Carroll has returned here for a brief visit to report on the progress of the work..He was accompanied by the Rev. Martin T. Gilligan, a priest of the Arch- diocese of Cincinnati presently on duty at the Vatican, and Mon- signor Marie Brini of the PaPa 1 Secretariate of State, both of whom have been assisting Mon- signor Carroll on the expedition. It is expected that Monsignor Car- roll and Father Gill[gun will re- turn to Germany within three or four days. Scores of Camps Visited Papal relief ah'eady has reach- ed the needy in scores of internee camps in Austria and South Ger- many, Monsignor Carroll said upon his return to Rome. He ad- ded that the Papal relief mission has established three principal bases of operations--at Munich and Ulm in southern Germany and at Linz in Austria--and that the distribution of relief was pro- ceeding out from these central places. Teams composed of priests, doctors and lay assistants tour the various camps adjacent to the cen- ters of operation. In every camp, the welcome ac- corded the members of the Papal relief mission was deeply en- thusiastic and was accompanied by spontaneous expressions of gratitude for this further evidence of the interest of the Holy Father in the fate of his spiritual chil- dren who have suffered so much. Aid Brought To All Monsignor CarroLl stressed the fact that the Papal relief mission s universal in scope and not limit- ed to any nationality or the mem- bers of any group. Particular interest is being shown, however, he said, to those whosefate is most uncertain. For example, the American priest added, special at- tention is being given to a camp just north of Munich where some 3,000 Poles are now aecomodated, mong them about 450 priests. Work To Be Expanded By the Rev. E. A. Conway, S. J.. ..(Staff Correspondent, N.C.W.C... News Service) San Francisco.--To what extent was the United Nations Confer- ence on International Organization influenced by the Papal peace program as applied by the Ameri- can Bishops in their widely pub- licized commentaries on the Dum- barton Oaks Proposals? The question thus formulated is difficult, if not impossible, to ans- wer. The Charter here has re- sulted from the. confluence of many streams of thought, among them, no doubt, that which flows in the broad and deep bed of Ca- tholic tradition. The truth of the matter is that credit for the hun- dreds of liberalizing charges which have transformed the Dumbarton Oaks Proposals must be appor- tioned among many nations and groups represented at San Fran- cisco. However, when the score is tal- lied, the fact remains that nine of the ten major points made by tle American Bishops--points which, it may be supposed, faithfully mir- ror the thought of the Holy Fa- ther in these matters--have been wholly or partly satisfied in the finished Charter. This fact is established and on record. On such questions as need of organ- ization, membership, international law, Assembly powers, peaceful change, economic cooperation, trusteeship system, human rights and the world court the Charter 2a. tholic Schools Ehm00nate Fed Aid Bishops' Contribution Spea-erk mu00h the fact that the qeea, Says American Catholic Bishops made definite recommendations on these questions influenced their adop- tion at San Francisco is hard to Monsignor Carroll, upon his re- turn to Germany, will hegin at once the expansion of the Vat[- con's work in favor of the inter- nees. It is planned, with the co- operation of the Allied authorities, to arrange for regular and fre- quent convoys from Italy under Vatican auspices to carry needed supplies to the internees. It may be several months before the re- patriation of all those desirous of returning to their homes can be affected, Monsignor Carroll said. Describes Pitiable Sight Monsignor Carroll added that all the former internees present a pitiable sight. All betray the suf- ferings to which they have been subjected, he said. Their bodies are worn and tired. How many of them have perished in captiv- Representative Fernandez also told the Committee', that if it were not for the Catholic schools there, the State of NewlMexico would require a large grlnt of Federal aid. He said Committee members should remember that the parents of Catholic children are bearing the full expense of Catholi edu- cation in the State with one ex- ception; namely, that New Mexico makes textbooks available for all children, regardless of the schools they attend. This testimony was given at hearings the Committee is holding on a House Bill (1296), which seeks Federal aid to public educa- tion in the States and Territories, and specifically provides that such aid shall not go to non-public in- stitutions of learning. Attack On Church Despite the character o the legislation before the Committee, Congressmen sitting on these hearings were obliged this week to reprimand a witness who grat- meets or approaches the recom- mendations of the Bishops, it is, however, unsatisfactory, on the veto power. gauge. The great contribution of the American Hierarchy consist- ed in the application of the peace principles pronounced by the Holy Father to the Dumbarton Oaks Proposals by way of preparing the minds of" our policy-makers and of our people for the final con- stitutional convention at San Francisco. Catholic thinking was brought to bear upon the problem of or- ganizing the peace shortly after the publication of the Dumbarton Oaks Proposals, when the Ameri- can Bishops on November 16, 1944, issued their statement "On Inter- national Order," in which they commented obliquely upon those proposals. Ten days before the opening of the San Francisco Con- ference on April 25, 1945, they is- shed a second statement, "On Or- ganizing World Peace," in which they reaffirmed 'and further in- terpreted the principles of the first statement, applying them specifi- cally to the Dumbarton draft and making definite recommendations for its improvement. Washington. (10-- Representa- tive Antonio M. Fernandez of New Mexico told the House Committee on Education this week that his State can struggle along at present without Federal aid to its edu- cational system, mainly because Catholic schools there are taking care of a large number of chil- dren. D National ()ff'cer To 'isil, Diocese Little Rock.Miss Beatrice M. Hoffman, National Junior Director of the Catholic Daughters of America, will be in Little Rock Saturday and Sunday, July 14 and 15, to conduct an abridged Lead- ership Institute for the Counselors of the Junior Catholic Daughters of America. The first National Officer to come to the Diocese in some time, Miss Hoffman's visit is looked for- ward to with interest. The pur- pose of the visit is to find out how the Junior Catholic Daughters can The two statements were later published in a leaflet "The Bishops Speak Out On World Peace," which received nation-wide cir- culation and as distributed among the delegates and their ad- visers at San Francisco. Reflected Papal Principles It was generally recognized at the time that the two statements applied to the concrete Dumbar- ton Proposals those general prin- ciples of a just world order which the Holy Father had elaborated in six Christmas allocutions and oth- er messages into a compplete blueprint for the future. That program, the most complete and far-reaching of any proposed for the guidance of modern men in search of a world at peace, became several years ago the basis for a nation-wide educational campaign conducted by the Bishop's Com- mittee on the Pope's Peace Plan, uitously attacked the Catholic Church. Ben Marsh, Executive Secretary of the People's Lobby, aptearing before the Committee, said that "Federal aid should be exclusively for tax supported schools." He said that "it may be that spokesmen who advocate Fed- eral aid for parochial schools and yet fight the legislation that would grant it to children in impoverish- ed rural areas, are just representa- tives ot the Vatican." Representative Augustine B. Kelley of Pennsylvania interposed an objection to this statement, and Representative Eugene J. Keough ! of New York reminded Mr. Marsh to confine himself to a discussion of the pending bill. Representa- tive Robert Ramspeck of Georgia, I author of the bill, spoke up to say "there is nothing in the bill that relates to anything except the public schools," and that "I do not appprove of any attack on any- body's religion." Mr. Marsh insisted on returning to the theme that the Catholic Church is a sinister influence that has killed Federal aid measures in the past. He strongly criticised President William Green of the American Federation of Labor, and President Philip Murray of the Congress of Industrial Organ- izations, for not answering a ques- tion which members of the Peo- ple's Lobby put to them in letters. The question was "Should Federal aid be confined to tax-supported schools?" Asks Aid To All President Frank P. Graham of [he University of North Carolina told the Committee that while he was speaking in behalf of Fed- eral aid to education in a South- ern State, a heckler in the crowd said: "If the Federal Government grants money to the State of New 'York, under its new constitution it may use that money for the transportation of Catholic school children. Therefore, I am opposed to Federal aid to education." Dr. Graham remarked on the unreasonableness of this attitude. He told the Committee that, if the State of New York wanted to make transportation available for See SCHOOLS on page 8 THEY GAVE .Ctually need their ity for want of food, clothing and v.,......"

Lessons of the Past While the Dumbarton Oaks con- ference was still in session, H Holiness expressed his intense tn-. terest in its work and recalled his 1939 appeal for the formation of a world organization, but repeated his warning that the new Ieagu.e should be based on the lessons learned from the experiences of ast failures. This new ,league, the Pope reminded, must recognize the right of all nations, great and small, powerful or weak, to life and indepenednce. It must also recognize the real needs :and iust demands Of nations and papilla- : tions and of racial minorities. It must liberate the nations from the slavery of armaments. The Holy Father called especial- ly for that spirit wlich alone can give life, authority and binding force to the dead letter of inter- national agreements: the spirit of justice which measures human statutes according to the law of God, and the spirit of universal love which is the compendium of the Christirn ideal. Mind of the Church The Holy Father asked for a juridical world order, based on recGgnition of the natural law and man's inalienable rights, and de- clared that the new order must be founded on recognition of the dignity and the value of the hu-: man person. In line with this" emphasis upon the need for recog- nition of the respect due to the human person, the Holy Father in hm 1941 allocution amplified his doctrine on the necessity of re- ordering international economic lif so that all nations should have the means of securing for their citizens an adequate standard of living. He warned that if, in the future peace, this point were not courageously dealt with, "there would remain in the relations be- tween peoples a deep and far- reaching root blossoming forth into bitter dissensions and burn- ing jealousies which would "lead eventually to new conflict." That the American Bishops faithfully interpreted the mind of the Church in their pro- i nouncements is evident from the high praise bestowed upon their statement "On Organizing World Peace" by L'Osservatore Ramona, the semi-official Vatican organ, which termed the statement a document of enlightened coher- ence "which cleaves to Papal teachings and the principles of democracy." * -v __ ....Co'rction " * Guardian Office.--Due to a * * mistake in The Guardian Of- * * rice the date of the Orphans * * Picnic and Carnival was giv- * * en as July 4th in last week's * * edition.
