Little Rock--Arkansas young people will join with some eight million youth in the U.S. and at overseas military bases in the observance of the llth annual National Catholic Youth Week October 29 to November 5. In a letter addressed to the Catholic youth of Arkansas, His Excellency Bishop Albert L. Fletcher asked young people "to dedicate your personal par- ticipation in National Catholic Youth Week to Christ the King Whose feast we celebrate on Sunday, October 29. He will teach you how to 'render to Caesar the things that are Cae- sar's and to God the things that are God's." Explaining the week's theme of "Yquth-Unity-Truth", Bishop Fletcher called attention first See YOUTH WEEK on Page 8 Tells Nation To Hold Firm. To Heritage New York, (E) -- FormerU.S. president Dwight D. Eisenhow- er said here that the Western world will triumph over com- munism if it places its trust in its "unique" spiritual heritage. Gen. Eisenhower told some 2,500 guests attending the 17th annual dinner of the Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation that the West has a greater ap- peal to world opinion than com- munism because it is commit- ted to spiritual values that cemmunists deny. The weak- ness of communism lies in its purely material appeal, he add- ed, and eventually the spiritual strength of the West will carry world opinion and communism will destroy itself. Cardinal on Platform The former president shared a speaking program with Fran- cis Cardinal Spetlman, Arch- bishop of New York, Gov. Nel- son Rockefeller and May or Robert Wagner. He was introduced by the Cardinal as "the man of our generation to whom America entrusted the guardianship of its nmst precious possessons our liberties and our youth." All costs of the $10O-a,p.late dinner were paid by Mrs. Thomas J. Morrison, bringing in more than $250,000 for the foundation, which supports the Smith wing of St. Vincent's Hospital and other charities. Gen. Eisenhower said the communists view man solely as an economic entity, while the West also sees him as a spiri- tual being. Proof of dedication to spiritual concepts, he de- clared, is the way free men help those who are in need. W h e t h er communism suc- ceeds "for the moment" in science, education, economic planning or international pro- grams is beside the point, he declared. System's Value "The value of a political system is measured by the ulti- mate destiny of those who live under it," he said. "If it robs man of his soul, his dignity, his freedom, it must be re- nounced, whatever the immedi- ate result may be." The former president scored "this wisecrack we have heard in the last several months, 'Better Red than Dead'," as a "cruel perversion of the hopes and belief of America." He cited this country's for- eign aid program as one exam- ple of the spiritual approach, and added: "We have made" mistakes in amounts and in the manner of distribution, and in some cases there has been a lack of appre- ciation of our generosity.
