" : Pc00srhon About Moscow i Statement He!dUnfair 1 B H Elmer Murphy of Washington.--As an aftermath of the Moscow Conference atten- [ ',q',,..s/..Lv.v'Ar tion has been directed to what is alleged to be the differences, if not I[ IB k the c, pen conflict, between the secular and the moral aspects of the lt -- a-L problem of establishing a just and enduring peace, between the ma-., _ v 2 terialistic viewpoint, on the one hand and the religious viewpoint, on the other. Religious leadership, deliberately or inadvertently, has been sub- jected to criticism because it has taken the position that the peace will be neither just nor enduring unless it conforms to basic moral precepts and that civil law must go hand in hand with Divine Law, if the objectives for which the war is being fought are to be attained. The Catholic viewpoint, as stated repeatedly in the past few years, nevertheless has been cal- led in question as being critical of democratic methods and prin- ciples, a charge which is without any semblance of justification, as the records show. Regarding the Me.scow Declara- tions, the Catholic Bishops said that they: "Do indeed open the way to necessary international cooperation for peace as well as for war. In this they represent a definite step in the right direc- tion." But the Bishops added, they do not dispel the fear that compromises on the ideals of the Atlantic Charter are in prospect. In a statement issued a year ago, the Bishops of the Admin- istrative Board pointedly con- demned totalitarianism. They said: "Secularism cannot write a real and lasting peace. Its nar- row vision does not encompass the whole man, it cannot evaluate the spirituality of the human soul and the supreme good of all mankind. ParseFs Model Airplanes and Supplies . I' r-i-. (glass, plastic, wood. leather) PARSEL'$ 316 W. Capitol Little Rock "Secularism cannot write a real and lasting peace. Where greedy might and selfish expediency are made the substitutes of justice, here can be no securely ordered wold. , Totalitarianism, whether Nazi, Communist or Fascist, can- not write a real and lasting peace. The state that usurps total powers by that very fact becomes a de- spot to its own people and a men- ace to the Family of Nations. The spirit of Christianity can write a real and lasting peace, even to those not Christian." .In 1941, in a statement on the Crisis of Christianity, the Bishops said: "We . , . declare, as shep- herds of souls, that our concern is {he supreme interest of religion Our thoughts, therefore turn to the' two greatest evils of today Which would destroy all spiritual values. We find two subversive forces, beth in control of powerful governments, both bent on world dominance:' They are Nazism and Communism. "How6Ver plausible their con- stitutions and their propaganda, the: alarming reality is that neither syste understands or permits freedom in its true Christian sehse.: Both systems usurp arbi- trary power over the lives and destinies of men; their dictators assume a power which belongs to God alone." This idea, so often reiterated by I he, Bishops, that totalitarian- ism cannot write a just and last-; Jag, peace, but that such a peace also cannot be achieved by secu- lar, lethods alone  methods which do not take into account the eternal verities of the father- hood, of God and the brotherhood of man'.has been frequently echoed by civil leaders The President, the Vice President and many others have on various oc- casions stressed the need of Di- vine*;afd in meeting the problems with ' ,hich they deal. They recognize.that anything that may be done to achieve the goal of se- curity atld peace must be anchored in ' the moal principles which, alone are appliqable to all man- kind.

It is our opinion that the obser- vance of the curfew would go far toward remedying existing condi- tions. The law should provide [ines for parents and guardians of delinquent children provided they have been culpably negligent of parental duty. Parents should be responsible for the behavior of their children but conditions be- ing as they are, with both father and mother working in a defense .lant, th children are left to the,r own devices, having in many -asos not been brought up in ae- ,:ordance with the precepts of Christian conduct, will acquire and :praciice evil habits and join the all too numerous groups of de- hnquents. Genuinely Christian home life is really the only perm- anent cure for this evil condition.
