PAE SIX THE GUARDIAN. JULY 6, 1945 [ "C:onw:ay ,Business.men Ask Patro"00a"qe Of Loyal Gu00ia:n Oppose B-00goi0000; STY" Jsephs Pal'iSh' Cnway C000gressi0nal (:0mini U.S. About Communist Truth, Archbishop Spellman Urges" Milwaukee. {E)True Americans should be uncompromising op- ponents of every species of bigotry to preserve our nation and help save the world from "the octopian monster that can destroy our cherished American heritage and democratic institutions,"" the Most Rev. Francis J. Spellman, Archbishop of New York r declared in a commencement day address at Requiem High Mass For Sgt. At Fayetteville Fayetteville. -- Requiem High Mass was held for S-Sgt. Phillip Michael Reed, 22, son of Mr. and Mrs. Jack Reed, Fayetteville, at St. Joseph's Church, Thursday morning, June 28 at 9 o'clock. The Rev. Charles McCauley, pas- tor, officiated. Sergeant Reed, who was" re- ported missing in action June 18, 1944, was a crew member of a B-17 Flying .Fortress based JR England. On a mission to Mis- burg, Germany, his plane was seen to leave the formation over the North Sea. Two of engines were on fire. Eight or nine parachutes were seen leaving Sergeant Reed's plane before it disappeared. Mr. and Mrs. Reed were notified last week by the War Department that since twelve months had expired, a presumptive finding of death had been officially recorded. The young air gunner was call- ed to the service in January, 1941 with the Fayetteville unit of the [National Guard. After trainirg l at Fort Sill, Oklahoma, he was transferred to the Air forces in September, 1942. He went over- seas in March, 1944 as a ball tur- ret gunner, and won the Air Medal with two Oak Leaf clusters. Cites Proofs For Guadalupe Apparitions By Charles Betica Mexico City. (E)--The Rev. J. Garcia Gutierrez, in an address on "Historic Authority for the Apparitions of the Mother of God at Tepeyac and the History of Guadalupan Devotion," said that the apparitions are precisely and convincingly attestea to by 48 documents, codices, maps and nar- rations, including that of well known Indian Vale:land, only re- cently discovered. In discussing the history of Guadalupe, the distinguished Mexican historian explained that the early Bishop hesitated to men- tion the apparitions in their docu- ments for fear of having it said Marquette' University here yester- day .... The honorary degree of Doctor of Letters w orderrsd on Arch- bishop Spellman bfare the Uni- versity's largest graduating class since the beginning of the war. Speaking on "Truth and Toler- ance," the Archbishop charged the graduates to "glory in your precious heritage of God-given rights and "not only recognize and honor the natural rights of the in- dividual, your neighbor, but also the God-like character of his im- mortal soul." Archbishop Spellman said the date of May 10, 1933, will be recorded in history as a day of "great sin against learning, truth and tolerance" be, cause "on that date nazi students paraded through the university towns of Germany and burned thousands upon thousands of volumes in the central squares in what was call- ed 'ideological re-armament.' Teachers were no longer free to teach truth, but were forced to in- doctrinate their students with the official nazi viewpoint." Recalling that "universities be- came instruments to supplement the progress of nazi tyranny... and Italian boys and girls became puppets of the State, while the Japanese Government established a 'Bureau of Thought Supervis- ion'." Archbishop Spellman assert- ed "We of our generation have thus been witnesses of what can and does happen to the freedom of a people when governments or individuals assumed dictatorship in education." The Archbishop declared that lies and intolerance are causes of war, and truth and tolerance are its victims. "If a university is to fulfill its mission," he said, "it should be conceived in truth, be a citadel of tolerance and a watch- tower of wisdom." This is the university's mighty contribution to freedom, he observed. Paying high tribute to Presi- dent Harry S. Truman and Gen- eral Dwight D. Eisenhower as "two of our !lation's great leaders ex- tolling uth and tolerance, ex- horting us against lies and bigo- try," Archbishop Spellman said that all universities in our land should be mindful of their coun- sel, "as war's vicious circle and cycle whirl in a delirium of wil- ftd and unwilling want and waste." 17 Nuns Observe Jubilees Pallet. 00Three members of The present St. Joseph's Church, Conway, is the third to be erected in this old Arkansas parish. The first, built in 1878, was destroyed by a cyclone in 1885. Another church was built shortly afterward, but the growth of the parish necessitated the erection of the St. Joseph's of today in 1924. Of buff brick, the church is situated in the older section of the city. The Ray. A.

Holland Priest First To Go Underground Washington. (E)--The first per- son in the Netherlands to go un- derground during the German oc- cupation was the Rev. R.H.J. Stokman, a Catholic priest, ac- cording to a report in Katholiek Dagblad, Catholic daily published at Utrecht, the Netherlands In- formation Bureau here reports. For five years Father Stokman, playing a leading role in under- ground activities, eluded the Gestapo, the report states. While he was being hunted he lived at Utrecht under various assumed identities until Germany's sur- render, cooperating always with the work of the underground, the paper states.

"When the conflict began, Spain had hardly concluded a tragic internal war. The num- erous wounds occasioned by the loss of a million men and the devastation of many regions were still to be healed; and her forces were needed for her own recon- struction." Looking to the future, the pas- toral says: "We hope for a peace founded on the Christian dogma of true human brotherhood, the Catholic universality of which Spain feels most strongly. We hope that all peoples will adopt this brotherhood from now on, and that their differences and condi- tions of culture will be used to contribute to the welfare which nations desire, and for the further- ance of human progress, instead of being converted into idols of blood and race." / After taking note of the pray- ers of thanksgiving offered in Spain when the war in Europe ceased, the pastoral says: "We shall continue praying for peace; in the first place, because al- though the fighting in Europe has ended, it still continues in other parts of the world; and in the sec- ond place, because cessation of hostilities is only a negative ele- ment of peace. Peace is tranquil- liras ordlnls; besides the birh of a new order, there must be justice to support it, not force alone." The pastoral also makes a plea to the "generous occidental nations" to save the "integrity and independ- ence" of Poland. =:rl- Designer Presents Pontifical Medal For 1945 To Pope Vatican City. 00 (Radio).
