(Continued from page 1) tion Is in the hands of the Ari- can wonl. Anything to cause a sensation seems to be the policy of most of our current newspapers and maga- nes. True to this code, the Newsweek gave a big play last week to the Very Roy. Hewlett Johnson, Dean of Canterbury Ca- thedral in England. He is called the "Red Dean" because he is an advocate of the couse of Com- munism. He claims that "Com- munism has recovered the es- senttal form of the real belief in God, which organized Christian- ity, as It Is now, has so largely lost." tI must be presumed that the Dean is referring to Commun- ism as It exists in Russia, since he has been a booster of that var- iety for some time. What he means by organized Christianity is not quite so clear, but it is prob- able that he means all those or- ganizations, such as his own, which have fallen away from the true Church established by Christ Naturally, the branches that have been cut from the vine have lost their vitalily, otherwise a para- dox, like the Dean, would not be in good standing in his church. Johnson claims that he has talked to a number of religious leaders who are working under Russian control, and they say that they are allo)ved to teach whatever they wish, and to teach religion to the children as well as to train nn- lasers. It must be that they do not want to teach much In the way of real religion, or they would have met with opposition as the Catholic Church has. No meutiozz was made of any Catholic church- man who said that there was no opposition to religion in the Soy- let territory. On the contrary, only recently, the news came out of Poland that all marriages, to be valid, would have to be per- formed before a c/all magistrate. This sort of mandate does not seem to bear out the "Red Dean's" contention. It is absurd, in the first place, for him to have made such a statement, since everyone knows that Communism, as it ex- Isis in Russia, and In territories under Ruulaa control, is atheistic. That means that God has no place under such u reghne, and con- sequently, any activity that calls ifself religious, that functions un- der such conditions must be a harmless, spineless variety that has had all its vitality and verse- ity extracted. Dean Johnson has, apparently, overlooked that very ldgn/ficant passage in Scripture in which Our Divine Saviour ald that no man can sere two mas- ters." He can not serve God and Stalin. Evidently, the Dean has his own good reasons for espousing Communism, but they can not be religious, In the Gospel that is read in the Mug of the first Sunday of Lent we may read the story of the temptation bf Christ by the devil. One passage contains much food for thought by the modern world. The devil addressing Christ said, "Command tIt these stones be made bread." And the answer that Christ made was, "Not In bread alone doth man live, but in every word that proeeedeth from the Mouth of God." This reply that Christ made to the devil is the answer to most of our modern problems. The world is proceed- ing on the fallacy that man does live by bread alone. It begins in our school rooms. The children are taught to attend only to those subjects which will have a cash value in after life. That is what modern schoolmen call a practical education. According to this pro- gram, man's only object in life is to make a living. He lives to eat. When the young man or woman leaves school and goes out into the business or professional world, he is encouraged to pursue the some tactics. The object of his llfe Is to get as much money as he can in order to purchase com- modities which are supposed to bring him happiness in this Ilia. Everyone seems convinced that modern people are so much hap- pier than their ancestors were be- cause they have the so-called modern conveniences. They live longer, but do they live better? Have modern medical discoveries improved the habits and the char- actor of people? It seems not. Rather is it true that science has been misused to thwart the laws of God. People have been taught by modern medical science to avoid the responsibilities of having children. In the world of indus- try those who work for a living want to work as little as possible for as much money as can be ac- quired. Work is considered a drudgery to be finished as soon as possible in order that the money that is earned may be spent in the ceaseless pursuit of that elu- sive something called pJeasure. At present, capital and labor are snarling at each other, threatening one another over the filthy money that each one of them prizes so highly. They never think of try- ing to work out a Just solution where each may have his fair share. All in all, in his pursuR of the 'bread alone" policy, man has made life a sordid thing. He gets more money, works fewer hours, figures of the war." This view is expressed by Hugh Gibson, former American Minister to Poland and Switzerland and former Ambassador to Belgium, in a letter to The New York, Times, in which he denounces as prepost- erous charges that the King of the Belgians ever was guilty of col- laborating with the nazis. "As Americans we are not prop- erly concerned with the current Belgian controversy as to whether the King is to return to the throne," Mr. Gibson writes. "That is their affair. But we can recog- nize the infamy of seeking to dis- credit an honorable man by ap- peal/ng to the veracity of that great exponent of truth and honor, the late Adolf Hitler." The charges of collaboration were recently revived by the pub- lication of a memorandum seized l in Germany on a conversation be- tween Hitler and King Leopold in November 1940. This memoran- dum, the substance of which had bsen denied by the King, was pre- pared by Hitler's interpreter nam- ed Schmidt, who, accordihg to Mr. Gibson, was "Ititler's jackal." "Anybody with half an eye can see what Schmidt has done here," explains Mr. Gibson, "It is the familiar nazi practice of putting l into the mouth of another what- ever Hitler wanted him to say." " Mr. Gibson cites what he terms "unimpeachable sources" to show that the Belgian Army withdrew only under orders from the French commander in chief, General Wey- goad, and held out, although the situation was utterly hopeless, in order to bar the nazi road to Dun- kerque. "The King could easily have got away to the safety of London and was indeed urged to do so," writes Mr. Gibson. "But he made the hard choice of stay- ing with his troops and sharing their fate, knowing how hard it would be--and how he would be misrepreselted. It is this man whom Hitler depicts crawling into his presence with assurances of collaboration." :- _ Control Program For Infantile Paralysis Made Minneapolis. -- Sister Elizabeth Kenny, the Australian nurse, who developed the Kenny method of treatment for infantile paralysis announced a plan to control in- fantile paralys all over the Un/t- ed States. To promote the campaign sixty prominent men and women, from all parts of the country, headed by Bing Crosby have volunteered their services on the national 1945 Kenny Foundation Drive. Pointing out that the Kenny In- st/tute at Minneapolis is the only hospital in America where her methods have been fully used over a long period, Sister Kenny said: "There we have banished crip- pling after-effects and robbed re- current epidemics of their chief terror. With the help of the pub- lic, the same thing can be done on a nationwide scale." Sister Kenny's plan to bring about the same happy condition in every community in the nation contemplates: 1. Establishment of authorized institutes in every state where the full Kenny treat- ment can be given to every polio patient exactly as it was devised !by Sister Kenny; 2. Through train- ing of thousands of doctors, nurses and technicians in the complete Kenny concept and method at a central training school; 3. Opening a rlesearch laboratory where all aspects of polio can be studied scientifically. Apostleip Of Sea Expands In U.S. Glasgow. (E)--Exceptional prog- ress has been made in America during the war by the Apostleship of the Sea through the foundation of Catholic maritime clubs at Brooklyn, Newport News, Mobile, New' Orleans, Portland, Ore., Seattle and Wilmington, Cal., un- der the sponsorship of War Relief Services--N.C.W.C., the Apostle- ship headquarters here reports. Many of the Apostleship's clubs in other countries Were lestroyed during the war, but are now being reopened wherever possible. In Italy all the clubs were destroyed except the one at Genoa, which was severely damaged. Clubs are now being restored in Antwerp, Ostend, Amsterdam and Rotter- dam, the report adds. Scarcity Of Priests In Czchoslovakia Prague. (--The scarcity of priests in Czechoslovakia is as- suming alarming proportions. Education of new priests was sev- erely hampered during the war because the seminaries at Prague have been returned, but the num- ber of seminarians is comparative- ly small. In the seminary of the Diocese of Hradec-Kralove, for instance, I there are at present only 88 stu- dents for the priesthood, a very small number considering the fact that 115 parishes in the diocese are vacant and one-half of all the priests are over 50 years of age. rears a manlier family, has less time for it, and spends more time away from his home-than ever before trying to live by "bread alone."

It'S j'st a simple tale about a little girl.., could be your little glri or aloe, if the stork who visited the Crosby house didn't have such a one-track mind. One day I was taking a stroll and came cross group of chil. dren enjoying a fast game of Hop Scotch. Being a Hop Scotch fan from way back, I stopped and watched the game for few min. utah. I noticed that one little girl, about 10 years old, was always bringing up the rear in the game. But she was having so much more fun about h that just watching her made me feel gee,|. Finally she dropped out and sat down on the steps of a house to rest. Then she looked over at me and smiled--a wonderfully happy smile. Never being able to resist glamour girl's gleam, I walked over to bee and sat down on the step alongside of her. "You're Bing Crosby, aren't you?", she asked. I reluctantly admitted to that fact, and she said, "I'm Joan Miles." We exchanged "how- dy.do's". I said something about it being swell to see anyoneenjoying herself so much. Then she gave me that gravely grateful look that always scores direct hit on a grownup's heart, and said, "Oh yes, I am having fun[ You see, today is the first day I've been able to play like that." I knew litde about Sister Elisabeth Kenny and how successful she had been in treating infRtfle  paralysis victims. Seeing that little glrl runahtg and playing just like any other child, "made mc euriou to know more shout the Kenny Treatment. i" found ,t that when the Kenny method of treating iaftie lralysts victims had been used, mml of the agony of the painful period was and the crippling after-effect of the dlme were v*rtually eliminated. I learned about the Ehzaeth Kenny Institute in Minneapolis wlare pvho vlet|ms fro m all over the world are t,ee,-,, and the on!y place where Kenny method tcth;l,.,a are trqlnccL ! tdly learned how urgemly Kedoy technicians were needed in times of ep:,em:cs and emergeneles . . . and that there were just not enough Kermydralned doctors, nurses and technicians to o arom, d.

They want to expand the institute and to train technicians who will help etablih clinics throughout America and eventually the world #m from . . . the heart of the American people.

Ray Scott, State Director for the Sister Elizabeth Kenny Fmmdatlon Drive in Arkansas. Doctor Carruhers is Cef of Surgeons at SL Vincent's Infirmary, Little Rock. "Been sick?", I asked. She said, "Yes, I had that sickness with the hard name to say.., infantile paralaparalysis. When I first was sick, I was afraid I was going to be like Jimmy in the next block. He doesn't have any fun at all. He's crippled and has to wear braces. But Dr. Jones sent me up to see Sister* Kenny end she helped me lot. 'Course, I can't run or play as fast as the ether kids yet, but I wil|, and gee, it's so seed to be able to play again--'specially when I never thought I could." Doctor Carruthers says in part: "First, let me say that the purpose of this drive should in no way be confused with any other drive towards seeking funds to combat the ravages of Infantile Paralysis. The principal and ultimate goal we seek In the funds raised in this campaign has a definite and distinct purpose. There should be no confused state of mind that there is any overlapping in our efforts..." "Just prior to a most serious outbreak that occurred in our state in the summer of 1942, it was my dis- tinct privilege to have been a student at the Center for continuation study operated in connection with the University of Minnesota at Minneapolis, where I among some 50 or 60 other Ortheopedlc surgeons and pediatricians of the United States attended the first school for training to promulgate the concepts of the Kenny method of treatment. Some thirty days fol- lowing mY return home the first outbreak occurred. Sister EHzabeth Kenny and her technicians and help- ers rushed every available personnel to us in assisting the combat of this dreadful disease. The number of victims in this state during that mild epidemic amount- Ing to about 200 cases. I have had the opportunity to carefully observe the outcome of the carefully regu- lated treatment that was administered at that time to these patients with a percentage of 80 percent of cures'and the most outstanding feature of the cure was th fact that in those cases the residual deformities so commonly seen 'following the use of other methods did not prevail in the end, a gratifying result indeed." "The Sister Elizabeth Kenny Foundation is a non- profit national organization pledged to bring Sister Elizabeth Kenny's advance treatment of the disease to men, women, boys and girls everywhere and is dedicated to the ultimate conquest of the "Great pler".
