PAGE 2 THE GUARDIAN, SEPTEMBER 20, 1974 .............. 7] From the Managing Editor's Desk.. Ever wonder why that nice sensible fellow who is elected to Congress seems to go off the deep end shortly af- ter he gets to Babylon. on the Potomac, why he takes on an aura of royalty, tells his constituents how to run their affairs and proposes, with blithe un- concern, new ways to spend tens-of-billions of tax dollars? The Industrial New Review explains that, when new members of the House of Representatives get to Washington, they find that suddenly they are "... wrapped in a veritable cocoon of privileges andperquisttes -- at taxpayer expense . . ." To make sure a fledgling Congressman doesn't overlook anything, there is a new 204- page "Congressional Hand- STEINWAY PIANOS FOR THOSE WHO WANT THE FINEST GERALD NEAL 3417 W. 12th, Littkt Rock 106 Ouachlta, Hot Springs 319 W. Main, Jacksonville Shocking Abortion Film to Be Shown Little Rock -- "Abortion, How It Is," a shocking 35-minute film that displays the actual slaying of unborn babies, will be exhibited next Tuesday, Sept. 24, at 7:30 P.M. in Fletcher Hall at St. John's Catholic Center here. The open meeting, with no admission charge, will be sponsored by the Arkansas Right-to-Life Committee. Refreshments will be served following an association business meeting. Father James R.

In the first place, he has a $157,092-a-year allowance to hire a 16-member staff to help him run his office in Washington and another office in his home district. An employment office to find these people is provided free of charge. Provisions also are made for every kind of personal service, Letters to the Editor Abortion Insurance Scored; Warning, Congratulations Offered Following is an Open Letter to Cardinal Krol, president of the American Bishops Conference: Dear Cardinal Krol, If the Bishops of the United States can support boycotts of a pants company, grape and lettuce growers, cannot they support a boycott of health and hospitalization companies that pay for abortions? Our State Insurance Com- mission was asked for the names of companies that do not pay for abortions. They an- swered they had no records of such companies, that they must be individually asked. I asked one company. Was told they did not, and then, when I received the policy, it was specifically mentioned that they did pay for abortions. is the average Catholic to find such companies? If such companies are available, they should be listed in Catholic newspapers. Companies that do pay for abortions (to their own financial gain since payments- for abortions are probably less than those for pregnancies) should be listed and boycotted. If there are no good com- panies available, Catholic laymen should be encouraged to form such a company. Perhaps the Knights of Columbus or the Catholic Mutual Relief Society of America could be encouraged and supported by Catholics to form such a morally acceptable health and hospital insurance plan. Respctfully yours in Christ, Father John Hlavacek Pastor St. Boniface Parish New Dixie Dear Editor: Thank you for your editorial of August 30th concerning guitar Masses. My heart and prayers go out to the wonderful Certainly Catholic dioceses and Religious Orders, if they have the convictions of the Faith they profess and what it teaches about abortions, should not patronize such companies with their health plans. But how from legal help to shoe shining, at n cst' complete facilities K pE b g C bat and expert assistance are ee m ar o on u available within instant reach to help with communications to the folks back home-radio Exiled Bishop Advises scripts, movies, slides, speeches -- anything at all. Additionally, the Congressman's salary, not to be sneezed-at, is $42,500-a-year. And to assure that he stays around to a ripe old age, 31 different health plans are available, as well as the com- plete medical services of Walter Reed Army Hospital and Bethesda Naval Hospital. That's the way things are for Congressmen. Imagine what we do for our Senators. Caracas, Venezuela (NC) - Exiled Cuban Bishop Eduardo Boza Masvidal warned that lifting sanctions against Marxist Cuba should not be granted at the price of justice. In a statement issued at his office here, Bishop Boza told the thousands of Cuban exiles to whom he gives pastoral care in the Caribbean and the United States that it is not enough that the Havana regime stop "ex- porting revolution" to other countries. That is the main condition in a proposal before the Organization of American States (O.A.S.) in Washington to lift the organization's 1964 sanctions against Cuba. Colombia, Costa Rica and Venezuela, in proposing that the sanctions be lifted, cited "profound changes" in the international situation. They referred to the thawing of the cold war and the establishment Join the STAG Line EMMETT HOFFMAN Distributor Opposes Raising, Russia's Status Washington (NC) -- The Soviet Union should not be given "most-favored-nation" treat- ment by the United States, according to Bishop James Rausch, general secretary of the United States Catholic Conference (USCC). In a statement sent to the members of the U.S. Senate, Bishop Rausch praised at- tempts at detente but argued that granting most-favored-na- tion status to the USSR "would be most inappropriate" in the light of continuing Soviet restrictions on human rights and freedoms. He specifically cited the repeated allegations of severe restrictions on religious freedom in the USSR and the USSR's "appalling" harassment of Soviet Jews and others who wish to leave the F NELSON- BALMAZ INSURANCE Business- Personal ,] JAMES NELSON - GABE BALMAZ k;;b';]l ARKANSAS TOUR TO MEXICO NOVEMBER 23, 1974 ROUND TRIP VIA AMERICAN AIRLINES 4 NIGHTS MEXICO CITY * 4 NIGHTS ACAPULCO VISIT CUERNAVACA and TAXCO 4 TOURS. 4 BREAKFASTS * I LUNCH * 5 DINNERS Personally Escorted by Bob Peters of economic relations between the socialist bloc and the West. "But the economic factor is being overstressed," Bishop Boza objected. "The question of a whole nation being oppressed inside Cuba seems to matter little to most leaders." Bishop Boza was expeUeo from Cuba in 1962. He was then auxiliary bishop of Havana. He is now vicar general of the diocese of Los Teques in Venezuela. Speaking of Fidel Castro's government, he said: "Cubans themselves did not choose such regime. Witness the thousands in jail or in exile, and the powerful apparatus of vigilantes and repression the Havana regime has to keep." Bishop Boza said he recognizes that peace moves must be welcome by Christians everywhere both among great powers and smaller nations. "But peace is the fruit of justice and the tranquility of order," he said. "If we do not have both, there cannot be true peace." The Cuban bishops have asked for the lifting of the embargo on grounds that it brings suffering to the poor.

He is one of 17 cardinal-delegates from the Roman Curia, the central ad- ministrative offices of the Church.

May I suggest the serious reading and rereading in depth of Jan Kozak's ]pamphlet "And Not a Shot Was Fired," that is available from the Superin- tendent of Government Documents, Office of Govern- ment Printing, Washington D.C. for a nominal sum. This is a communist blueprint for destroying the British Parliament by using the Parliament. It has been used since in consistent efforts in this country to destroy the U.S. Constitution and its Courts by using these institutions to destroy themselves. Since 1952 the same directive has been used to destroy the Christian faiths and, since 1962, the Catholic faith. The modus operandi is as thin as tissue paper to those who know the enemy and his plans. God's greatest gift to each of us is our free will.., to adhere to His principles . . . or not. Have we lost consciousness of the countless heresies exposed through the centuries? Have we lost our fear of God and that the Church is sustained by the blood of martyrs? Why do you sup- pose He has sent us Lourdes, Guadalupe and Fatima? It is long past time for the reading of Lucia's secret prophesy.
