Religion Must i Fight Atheistic Invaders Ottawa. (E)"We who are in- terested in religion are not longer engaged in a civil war. It used to be that there was a conflict between sect and sect, between Methodist, Presbyterian, Baptist and Catholic, or, more generally, between Catholic and Protestant. That is what I called a civil war within the great body of Chris- tendom. We are no longer en- gaged in civil war. We are face to face with invasion," the Rt. Rev. Msgr. Fulton J. Sheen, of the Catholic University of America told a gathering of more than 3,000 here. He appeared in Ottawa under auspices of the Catholic Women's League, the Holy Name Society and the Catholic Youth Organize- 't/on of Ottawa Archdiocese. His audience filled the three largest halls available in the Chateau Laurier. The "invasion," which both Ca- tholics and Protestants face to- day, Msgr. Sheen declared, is from outside Christenfiom. Whereas formerly there was opposition among men as to the manner of worshipping God, "today the op- position comes from those who say that God should not be wor- shipped at all," he said. Men of good willthose whc still believe in God--must unite to combat the common foe strik- ing today at the very belief, Msgr. Sheen said. The men of good will include those, who while not be- longing to any particular sect, believe in something that is fun- damental, he added. and told me that we would get a 25-word message from him to us. He refused payment for sending the message or for the expense of making the trip. I am a member of a different faith and have no connection with the Catholic Church, but I want to make this public statement of our appre- ciation of what it has done for us and the way in which it was done."

The poet writes: "He that steals my purse steals trash .... but he that filches from me my good name, takes that which enriches him not but makes me poor indeed."

Although irreparable harm is done by an evil, slanderous, ca- lumnious tongue, it seems to be the favorit9 indoor sport of the ages. To :4ome people, the wag- ging of a poisonous tongue has be- come a second nature. Unlike the anteater, which holds out its tongue until it is covered with ants, and then swallows them, the scandal-monger emits crawling 'insects and spreads them over the fair name of anybody and every- body who in the'least stirs his bile. This loathsome habit is not by any means confined to the crude and illiterate. We need not con- jure up a picture of idle, lazy wo- men with arms crossed, whispering across the partition hedge of their homes. The significant "you know what I mean" often can be heard in the high-bred, intelli- gently covert conversations of drawing rooms and professional; offices. And, furthermore, the shame of the pastime is that it is not re- stricted to the indifferent and sin- ful; no, even self-righteous and pious persons often feel called upon to add fuel to the fire that consumes what man holds dear- est. The only regret these con- temptible ethical murderers seem to have, if one judges by the ferocity with which they tear things apart, is that their tongues are not long enough. A little boy at the dinner table reached across the guest for some butter. The father reprimanded him, right then and there. "Boy, don't 'ou have a tongue?" he frowned: "Yes, Dad," came the prompt re- ply, "but it isn't long enough to each the butter all the way across the table." What prompts the activity of an evil tongue? Maybe just a mental weakness--at least when there is no deliberate intention of doing harm. The killer gets the same thrill as a man with a gun who walks around the woods or along the fields, shooting down anything that flies, be it robin, mockingbird or crow. The sports- man gains little or nothing by his activity, but he somehow enjoys it. But gossip, calumny and slan- der can be incited by moral de- pravityan urge to see people embarrassed or suffering. This disposition is the nadir of psy- chology. It suggests Satan in sar- donic glee at the misery of man. However, most of the time, a ripping tongue is made to func- tion by a desire to heighten one's standing or enhance one's chances by fabrieated comparison. The i guilty one expects to inflate his stock by degrading another man's reputation. This villain is worse than a thief or thug, for, in either :of such cases, the man who is at- tacked has a chance for protection i or defense. This opportunity is denied by the coward who sneaks up on one's good name and knifes it. The American people known for their high sense of fair- ness and justice. Why we should have so many who give no thought to the unfairness and the injustice of manhandling the truth is a na- tional enigma. This can best be illustrated during political cam- paigns, when lies fill the air like tongues of fire in Hades. Many of our newspapers, with no sense of honor, lend themselves to the purpose of their favorite politicos and afford classical instances of truth twisting. The great pity of the harmful word is that it is so difficult to retrieve its effects. Reparation is 'often as futile as the next-day editorial retraction of a deroga- tory article in a newspaper. Everybody will read the damag- ing information, but only a few will see the apology'. A man or a woman of character always will guard his or her tongue. Edmund Burke, the great English statesman, said this of his wife, who was not beautiful, but charming: "It is not the things she does that attract and win so Just inatalhd a 25 cubic foot Electrical Biological Case, 4 times the space we have had, for Human and Vetinary Biologicah "and Vacdnes.

Secular Editorial Lauds Bishop Flavin, Miss Emma Fleming, Mr. and Mrs. Michael Gamill, Miss Mary Gray, Mrs. James Gray, Mr. On Prindpals For Peace' Post, secular daily newspaper. An outstanding feature of the peace pleas presented in the new volume, the editorial declares, is the consistent fight through the years on the part of the Popes "against totalitarianism in any form, and against government ten- dencies that have lead to dictator- ship." Potent Influence Discussing the possibility of the] presence of the Pope at the peace I table at the conclusion of the present war, the editorial re: marks: "In any event the Catholic Church's peace policy will exert a potent influence in the peace negotiations." "The Roman Catholic Church is making a bid for a place at the peace tablet" the editorial says. "That is, it is offering to the world suggestions for peace made by the last five Popes, from Leo XIII to the present Pontiff, Plus XII, ,as saugh, Mrs. Helen Ciesielka, Miss Arlene Findley, Mr. and Mrs. A. the result of their efforts over a period of 65 years to prevent and stop wars and to establish endur- ing world peace. Centuries Of Effort "If anyone knows anything about principles for true peace, the Popes should, for they have worked at it year in and year out for centuries.., the Pope is in close communication with a Hierarchy of 47 cardinals, 13 Patriarchs and 2,000 Archbishops and Bishops; they, in turn, are in intimate touch with about 300,000 priests, and the priests have their fingers on the pulse of some 365,- 000,000 Roman Catholics through- out the world. "The peace efforts and aims of the Popes have been consistently non-political. In fact, an out- standing feature of the peace pleas presented in the new vol- ume is their consistent fight through the years against totali- tarianism in any form, and against governmental tendencies that lead to dictatorship. The prelates have agreed that regimentation and collectivism lead unfailingly to totalitarianism, and that no peace program can be sound and lasting among totalitarian govern- ments. =:Z The average length of the growing season in Arkansas var- ies from about 169 days in the i northwest section to more than R.
