Lock, Mr. Eli Luyet, Mr. Felix Malachowski, Mr. are ten former Edward Massar, Miss Theresa Benton, noted publicity and adver- tising counsel, as Assistant Secre- tary of State in charge of public affairs. "The war has dramatized once more the superlative economic strength of the United States," Mr, Benton said on assuming office. "The advent of atomic power, with American science in the fore- front of research, means that we have become  temporarily at leastthe most powerful military nation on earth. Such strength could easily generate suspicion and dislike abroad. Thus we face one of the greatest challenges of our history. Morally, spiritually and intellectually we must rise to the responsibilities inherent in our economic and political strength. And we must make clear to all the world that we propose to use our strength, and the force of our ex- ample, constructively, and in the interest of all mankind." Assistant Secretary of State Benton added that "we must strive to interpret ourselves abroad through a program of education and of culttlral exchange." "Fur- ther," he said, "here at home we must strive for a better under- standing of the other peoples of the world, with whom we want to live in peace and cannot live in peace unless we achieve mutual understanding•" The need for this understanding, observers here believe, has been emphasized by the reports from London that the meeting of for- eign ministers (including our own SecretaTy of State,) "bogged down" front time to time as one power and then another insisted upon some point with unyielding vigor. The United States, they feel, has nothing to fear from a sincere and frank revelation of our plans and our ambitions in the international field, since in two enormously costly world wars we have es- chewed aggrandizement. But to what extent will other nations, in- cluding our own allies, permit their own peoples to receive "a better understanding of our demo- cratic processes," which the State Department plans to make avail- able? It is not enough, observers agree, that the conquered coun- tries alone learn about our demo- cracy• It is not yet known, of course, just how the informational pro- gram of the State Department will operate. It is known, thou_h, that the Department has had trans- ferred to it many functions of the Office of War Information and the Office of Inter-American Affairs. It is not believed that approaches such as were used by these two agencies in their respective fields, or any similar activities, would be tolerated by Russia in its own do- main and in the half-score coun- tries to the west which have come under Soviet domination• There is general agreement that the en- deavors of the Stata Department to provide foreign peoples with an understanding of our democratic way of life are destined for some "hard sledding" in a very large portion of the earth. This belief is strengthened by recalling the difficulties Russia has put in the path of news and radio correspondents, and even of Unit- ed States Government missions, in their efforts to enter Soviet-domi- nated countries. Since the com- munists actually held up relief agencies in some cases, they are not expected to be any more tel- vices---National Catholic Welfare Conference sent millions of dollars to relieve distress in Europe dur- ing the past two years, the Rev. Edward E. Swanstrom, assistant director of the organization, told the Pax Romana Regional Con- gress here. Describing the relief work, Fa- ther Swanstrom said that 44 coun- tries had been helped, as well as Polish refugees in the Middle East, East Africa and Mexico. War Re- lief ServicesN.C.W.C, now has a relief program for Italy, Bel- gium and Holland and hopes to start one soon for displaced per- sons in Germany, he said. Pointing out that.the organiza- tion he represented received its funds from private effort, Father Swanstrom attributed this effort to "the whole-hearted, Christ-in- spired love of neighbor that prompts millions all over the Unit- ed States to contribute from the bounty that God had given them to help !their suffering brethren the world over." Through its vast work War Relief Services-- N.C.W.C., has formed friendships with Catholics in all countries and has become closely united with them, Father Swanstrom said, adding that it is .essential that this unity be preserved. [ Grateful For U.S. Help The Most Rev. Thomas E. Flynn, Bishop of LanCaster, thanked War Relief ServicesN.C.W.C., on be- half of the British Hierarchy for the help it had given to the bomb- ed-out, the refugees and the evacuees in this country• He ask- ed Father Swanstrom to take back tq America Britian's thanks and also the condolences of all present on the disaster in the Empire State Building, New York. Abbe Gremaud, of Fribourg, Switzerland, general sec/'etary of Pax Romana since 1921, speaking of the organization's work during the war for prisoners and refu- gees, said it would have been im- possible but for the help of War Relief Services---N.CW£., which had provided Mass requisites for chaplains and enabled an interna- tional university to be formed in Switzerland. Refugee and intern- ed students were fed, housed, clothed and enabled to continue their studies at Swiss Universities so that by the end of the war they were qualified in their professions, he said. Aid To Persecuted Spain, Belgium and France as- sisted in this work, and members of Pax Romana who had to leave France and Belgium to elude the Gestapo were helped to escape to Spain, where they were received by other members in touch with Pax Romana resistance groups in th¢ occupied countries. The four-day conference, attend- ed by delegates of 24 different na- tions, was a regional European conference, but so many countries were represented that it assumed the character of the pre-war an- nual Pax Romana world congres- ses and, in a way continued and completed the world congress tkat was being held in Washington when the war began. Some of the delegates €o that congress have not yet arrived home, it was stated here. Many of those present had pre- viously attended the international Cardinal Newman Centenary Con- ference held at Beaumont, Wind- sor, Berkshire, to commemorate the great Cardinal's reception into ;1945 PAGE, FPI I I I I I _ I ! !i " ,,, I LOUIS Protestant Minister Eulogises Berlin Priest Who Died In Concentration Camp By Dr. Max Jordan (War Correspondent, N.C.W.C. News Service) Berlin. (WA--A notable tribute to a Catholic priest who died a martyr to his faith in a nazi con- centration camp was paid by a Protestant minister, who was his fellow prisoner, in an address at the burden of responsibility that the leaders of our nation have loaded upon us. We do not try to find excuses for the atrocities and injustices that were commit° ted against the peoples of oc- cupied territories by party men and alsp by many military author- ities. 'Specifically, we condemn the murder of hostages and the mass murder of German and Po- near Berlin) with the venerable lish Jews." Canon of the Roman Church of In this connection, the statement Berlin, Monsignor Lichtenberg, a is significant which was included man who became our brother in in the manifesto of the Berlin Christ because of the Gospel and Protestant BiShop.

Religious publications are a meeting of the so-called Confes- sional Protestant churches, the largest group of German Protest- ants, at Spandau near here. The Protestant minister was Dr. Albertz and the priest to whom he referred was the late Monsignor Bernhard Lichtenberg, canon of St. Hedwig's Cathedral in Berlin• Monsignor Lichtenberg was widely known in Berlin as a joint relationship between the Roman church and ourselves." Not unlike the Catholics of Ger- many, the Protestants, too, are now earnestly engaged in searching their conscience• Dr. Otto Dibel- ius, Protestant Bishop of Berlin, has issued a statement blaming the Protestant church authorities for having become "instruments of un-Christian activities instead forbidden and religious services cannot be broadcast. While re- ligious instruction in the schools is being promoted in both the American and the British zones, the German communists attempt to prevent religious activities in the Russian zone, in spite of the fact that 90 per cent of the parents favor religious instruction". preacher and confessor. He had i frequently protested against the persecution of the Jews and of- fered prayers for them publicly• He also took a vigorous stand against the "mercy-killings" of the insane• He was finally arrested and died on the way to the in- famous concentration camp of Dachau after having been kept in jail for two years.
