PAGE 12 THE GUARDIAN. OCTOBER 3, !969 Polish Communists Sidetrack Pope Vatican City (NC) -- An offi- cial of the Vatican secretariat of state has accused Poland's communist regime of trying to make it appear that it favors a papal visit while at the same time it eliminates the real nature of such a trip. The Warsaw weekly, Perspek- tywy, said that Pope Paul would be welcomed in Poland if he came as an official guest of the gov- ernment. The government, how- ever, cannot agree to a visit by the Pope as a private pilgrim and a guest of Stefan Cardinal Wyszy- nski of Warsaw, it added. The weekly claimed that the government has not rejected a papal visit, and that up to now no Vatican official has proposed a papal visit. The official of the secretariat of state said that, although the weekly's comments might seem positive, they are in fact no more than a statement of the Polish regime's position. "The Pope has gone to various countries in relation to religious matters and as a private per- son," he said. "Although in some areas he has been accorded hon- ors reserved to a head of state on a state visit, he has been free to move as he chose and to have the freedom of a private pil- grim. "However, if he accepted an invitation only as an official guest of the government and re- nounced his status as a private pilgrim and as a guest of Cardi- nal Wyszynski, the Polish gov- erament would have the right to set up the whole program of his visit and to show him only what they wanted him to see. The entire program would be in their hands." As for the weekly's claim that no Vatican official has proposed a visit by the Pope, the official said this is true insofar as none has asked the government to invite the Pope to Poland as an official guest of the government. On the other hand, the official said, it has been made quite clear to government officials that the Pope has wanted -- and still wants -- to visit Poland in the role of a private pilgrim on a re- ligious visit and to visit the shrines and Catholics of the country freely. Cardinal Condemns Heresy of Scientism New Delhi, India (NC)--Vai- space traveller to say that he supremacy, and that, therefore, erian Cardinal Gracias of Bombay warned against the new "heresy of scientism" in a talk broadcast over the All- India Radio network. The cardinal said in the talk entitled "Scientific Thought and the Evolution of Faith," that it was a "puerile gesture" for the found "no God up there" or for a doctor to say that when he cut up a human body he found no soul. Pointing out that science is "autonomous" only in answering scientific questions, Cardinal Gracias declared that it was an easy step to assume that the au- tonomy of science means its i i i . i Arnold's Monument Co.

According to Fawcett, new students have in the school to take the place of the newly g: the Laboratory -- to which they would have us all flock. Everywhere, he pointed out, there is an attempt to recast ancient religions and age-con- secrated codes of morality. "No one is satisfied with pour- ing out the bath water; the baby must be thrown with it," he said. On the evolution of faith, the cardinal said "no science can nullify" the true values which re- sist the erosion and arbitrary changes wrought by time. He said there were funda- mental truths which are unchang- ing -- in spite of political up-  heavals, economic changes and changing customs and fashions. Pointing out that progress in human knowledge must contribute to a growth in faith, the cardinal said "this then is the great role science has." "As man stands awed by the beauty and immensity of outer space, when he contemplates the mystery of life and death as the surgeon performs a heart transplant, man feels confronted with the power and glory of God. "Each time science helps man to uncover the secrets of nature, faith helps him to discover the mystery of God."
