The Archbishop of Sydney said in a lenten pas- toral letter on charity: "Our fellow men, who today call for an espe- cial outpouring of charity, are pagans in mission- ary countries. In addition to the other impediments to their learning the saving doctrines of Jesus Christ, there is in many places exaggerated nation- alism spurred on by atheistic Communism. "The tragic slaughter of missionaries in the Con- go is a terrible example of this. The enemies of Chris- tianity hope that by brutality and terror they will discourage other missionaries' mission fields. iiimmm uim  m m m m m m m m mmmm AJ 'Miss Lo' Leaves Settlement House After $7 Years HOT CAKES or WAFFLES and-- WASHINGTON.--(NC)--After 57 years on the job, "Miss Lo" is leaving the Christ Child Set- tlement House here.

We must continue to subscribe to and be guided by that code in order to achieve excellence in our per- sonal and social performance." He emphasized the neces- sit of recognizing and being gu,ded by such concepts as freedom under law for every person, the inherent dignity and worth of every person as "a sovereign personality," the equality of all before the law, the superiority of the individual person to society, and the fact that "only through a rule of law--civil and moral-can society fulfill its obligation to the individ- ual. Sullivan said that while in- ternational Communism directs its efforts against the entire non-Communist w o r 1 d, "the United States is given special attention, since it is Commun- .ism's strongest adversary." ahan of Pennsylvania has urged the government to prosecute a New York magazine publish- er for mailing "evil and sug- gestive" adverfisments to chil- dren. Mrs. Granahan, chairman of a House Post Office subcom- mittee, sharply criticized the publishers of a magazine called EROS in a speech on the House floor March 8. She said the firm was send- ing children advertising mater- ial "obviously intended to in- cite immoral interest." She declared that there have been "numerous instances" in which the entire student bodies of schools have received ads for the magazine. Mrs. Granahan s aid her subcommittee had com- plained to the Post Office Department, but had been told that the material ap- parently was not illegal. Mailed fliers for EROS de. scribe it as "a new quarterly on the joy of love" and "the magazine of sexual candor." The ads say the magazine "is the result of recent court decisions that have realistically interpreted Americ's obscen- ity laws and that have given to this country a new breadth of freedom of expression. Mrs. Oranahan was seconded by Rap. Glenn Cunningham of Nebraska. Cunningham stressed the need for obscenity legisla- tion which distinguishes be- tween adults and minors and recognizes that materiel which is acceptable for adults may be objectionable for children.

Hungary Releases MOSCOW Hears That Jailed Priests BERLIN (NC)--An unspeci- fied number of imprisoned priests in Red-ruled Hungary have been let out of jail but ordered not to engage in priest- ly activities for three years, according to reports reaching here. Reports said the priests were under arrest pending investiga- tion of charges of "subversion" against the Communist govern- ment. Hungary's Ministry of Interior reportedly told the priests that it could not prove its suspicions of subversion and was therefore suspending action against them. At the same time, the gov- ernment's Office for Church Affairs told bishops to suspend the released priests for three years. If they are not suspend- ed, bishops were warned, the priests will be rearrested. Priest Who Edited Magazine 44 Years Dies at Age 84 MILFORD, Conn., March 14. (NC)--Father Charles J. Cal- lan, O.P., editor of the monthly Homiletic and Pastoral Review from 1916 to 1980, died Febru. ary 26 at 84 in Milford Hos- .pital.

Before that he had served as pastor of the Domi- nicans' Holy Rosary church in Hawthorne, N.Y. Fasting Is Harmful NEW YORK, March 14--The Soviet people, be- set by shortages of some staple foods, heard this week that "the head works poorly on an empty stomach." This and other aspersions were showered on the custom of religious fasting by Radio Moscow in what purports to be a reply to a listener's question. The pro- gram was monitored by Radio Liberty. Radio Moscow's comments to the question, "What is the danger of religious fasting?", were prepared by D. P, Tselishchev, a member of the All-Union Society for the Dis- semination of Political and Scientific K n o w 1 e d g e, and broadcast on February 26. "Fasting, like all other reli- gious rites and customs has only a harmful effect," Tselish- chev said, noting that in the Russian Orthodox Church, for example, 275 days out of the year are designated as fast days. According to specialists at Radio. Liberty, the Soviet "researchers" have thrown in 50 days for good measure. Ac- tually, only 110 days can be considered days of fast in the Russian Orthodox Church, the other 115 days being days of abstinence, when only dairy and meat products are pro- scribed. According to the Soviet propagandist, the custom of fasting "originated long ago." "In the distant past, when- ever there was a lack of food, toting wu a natural experi- ence," he said. "For centuries now, religious leaders have been advocating the necessity of fasting, asserting that God himself through Christ or Mo- hammed, demanded abstinence from satiety." Tselishchev accused the "exploiting classes" of hav- ing supported the tradition to their advantage. "To force workers to perform their duties in a half-starved condi- tion is advantageous to those who exploit them," he said. Tselishchev "reasoned" that "the idea behind fasting is that it leds us to see only what the priests want us to see; the head works poorly on an empty stomach. "Fasting is not only spiritual seduction, transforming believ- ers into obedient slaves of God, it enervates the organism. Be- lievers who do not realize this only ruin their health. Commenting o n Tselish- ehev's condemnation of reli- gious fasting, a spokesman for Radio Liberty recalled that the Soviet press has re- cently revealed chronic short- ages of meat, butter, milk, cooking fats, fruits and most vegetables in the Soviet Union. Urged To Shun You+h Festival MONTREAL (NC) -- Officials of some 30 Catholic student federations have urged all Catholic students of North America to shun participation in the World Festival of Youth to be held this summer in Helsinki, Finland. They adopted a resolution calling the festival a meeting for one ideological group only, namely Communist." The youth officials took the action at the annual business meeting March 2-4 of the North American Commission of Pax Romana, an interna- tional movement of Catholic students. U.S. Catholic youth organi- zations backing the resolution included the National Federa- tion of Catholic College Stu- dents and the National New- man Club Federation. et Mrs. Kennedy's Audience Is Rare Event For Pope By MSGR.

Joseph Luyten, pastor emeritus of St. Andrew Church, Ellens- burg. Father Ryan, born in 1888 in Ireland, was ordained in 1912, the same year he came to Seat- tle. His first assignment was to Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish in Sedro Woolley. His first pastorate was at St. Ann Church in Sumas. Father was pastor of St. Joseph, Wenat- chee from 1918 to 1923 at which time he was appointed to Sac- red Heart, Tacoma, and then to Our Lady of Good Help, Ho- quiam, where he served from 1923 to 1945.

On entering, she genuflected, kissed the Pope's ring and sat down in a chair beside his desk. Mrs. Kennedy hter said that she was immediately put at ease by the Pope's manner. During the 30-minute audi- ence, she said, she and the Pope talked about her family. She recalled that when sht told the Pope that her dau Car's name is Caroline, he said: "Ah, after the saintly Charles Borromeo." The Pope called to her at- tention that he, her husband and her son all have the same name--John. In an exchange of gifts at the end of the audience, Pope John gave Mrs. Kennedy ro- series and medals for mem- bers of her family. She pre- sented the Pope with a vol- ume of t h e President's speeches. "To Turn the Tide." Toward the end of the audi- ence, Archbishop O'Connor, Msgr. Thomas Ryan of the Secretariat of State, Msgr Benincasa, Msgr. Marcinku and Father Cronin rej Mrs. Kennedy and the Pope. Pope John escorted Mrs. Kennedy out of his study and through a series of adjoining rooms,, an honor considered rare since he normally bids goodby to his guests at the threshold of his study.

The Cardinal gave her a prayerbook in English for Caroline's First Communion and a doll dressed in the uni. form of a Swiss Guard. While Mrs. Kennedy was visiting Cardinal Cicognani, Pope John received in special audience a group of more than 30 U.S. newsmen whp are fol- lowing Mrs. Kennedy in her travels.

Bishop Declares Far East Reds Bishops Warn Can Be Stopped Of Communist SEOUL, Korea. -- (NC) -- A missionary bishop who has seen the Communists in action in the the Far East since 1920 said they can be stopped if the Christian world will match their zeal. This was the view expressed by Bishop Thomas Quinlan, S.S.C., in an interview on Korea's American Forces TV network. The Irish-born mis- sioner, now Vicar Apostolic of Chuncbon, also made a state- ment defending the bravery and loyalty of American sol- diers captured by the Reds in the Korean conflict. The bishop retold his ex- periences on the infamous death march to northwest Korea on which 98 persons died or were shot. "I do not share the views of those who say the GI's did not measure up to the traditions of their army," he said. "Any country could be proud of them. On the death march I never heard a second call for volunteers to carry a comrade unable to walk.

"Communist agents infil- trate newspapers, broadcasting stations, television and other key positions to influence the education of the people." e"Elements of marked Marxist tendency are found in all our universities." The Bishops warned that legislation and other reforms would accomplish little in the long run unless the people are properly educated. "Without an adequate edu- cation," they said, "there shall be no spirit of sacrifice to seek solutions to the social lem, to unite the people, raise their productivity, make wise use of salaries with- out wasting them in vice."
