They also regard election re- suits as a repudiation of the Christian Democratic opening to the left, the alliance of the left-of-center coalition of Chris- tian Democrats, Democratic Socialists a n d Republicans Headlines and Deadlines: Something Added May 1 By George . gmmer, Ph.D. Something was added to May Day celebration in Moscow this year.

At Murmansk he was greeted by A, astas I. Mikoyan who spent several weeks in Cuba last fall presumably advising what to do with offensive weapons during the missile crisis, In Moscow, Khrushehev staged his hug-and-kiss per- formanee, but nobody knows for certain whether he kissed Castro on one or both cheeks. This is important because it may have significance.

The Christian Democrats, Italy's leading party since the end of the war, remain the largest party, but its percent- age of the popular vote de- clined from 42.4 per cent in 1958 elections to 37.2 per cent. The Communists rose from 22.7 to 25.7 according to latest re- turns. Also scoring large gains was the Liberal party, a con- servative group despite its name, which rose from 3.5 percent of the votes in 1958 to 6.9 per cenL Maiy right- wing Christian Democrats displeased with the opening to the left apparently voted for the Liberals. The Socialist party declined slightly from 14.2 per cent to 13.8 per cent. Among the reasons for the Communist gains, observers said, are the following: --Effective Communist prop- aganda which led uninformed voters to believe that the Church has abandoned its con- demnation of Communism. The gestures of His Holiness Pope John XXIII toward peace and good will were exploited by the Communists to convince voters the Holy See had relaxed its stand. --Internal migration which has led many persons to move from rural areas where the Christian Democrats are strong to industrial centers where the Communists' strength is con- centrated. --Votes of leftwing socialists who cast their ballots for Com- munists rather than back the Socialist party's alliance with the Christian Democrats. CHRISTIAN CULTURE SERIES, PAGE 6 University Day Set: Archbishop Urges Students To Visit S.U. H i s Excellency, t h e M o s t Reverend Arch- bishop Thomas A. Con- nolly, today urged a l 1 Catholic high school stu- dents at the junior and senior levels to visit Seattle Univer- sity tomorrow. The school is marking Uni- versity Day from 1 to 5 p.m. with an open house for juniors and seniors and their parents. Over 5,000 invitations to Catho- lic young people in the arch- diocese have been sent out in recent weeks. In a letter addressed to all high school seniors, His Ex- cellency said: "Nowhere is the wisdom of Our Holy Mother, The Church, more apparent than in her laws and regulations respecting Catholic education. The Code of Canon Law ordains that the faithful shall be so instructed from their earliest youth in such a way that religious and moral training shall have the chief place. This training shall be in a Catholic school insofar as that be humanly possible. "Catholic education means exclusively Catholic, from kindergarten to college, from the first grade to the Mas- ter's Degree. Education in the Arts and Sciences, im- pregnated with a true Catho- lic philosophy of life, is avail- able in our very midst at Seattle University. Education which ignores the Creator and Ruler of the Universe is necessarily incomplete and inadequate to meet the needs of men, of government or of society. True education is fundamentally a religious proposition. "The conspiracy of secular- ism to oust God from national life is making education its first battleground and religious- sponsored schools its first tar- get. The results are apparent if we would open our eyes to pointed a commission to pre- pare for distributing land be- longing to the archdiocese among 1,500 peasant families. The land is to be sold at a low price and with long term cred- it. Training programs for the farmers have been planned. "The Church condemned lib- eral capitalism because among other reasons its postulates of unlimited free competition and of dogged separation of cap- ital and labor lead inevitably to concentration of property in the hands of a few persons, while the great mass of all pop- ulation, deprived of all prop- erty, ekes out an existence while submerged in misery;" he said. "But the Church cannot ad- mit as solutions for social problems materialistic doc- trines which, with an exces- sive desire for a rapid solution of social injustices, despoil man of his dignity, his liberty and of his most basic rights. ness Pope John XXIII has asked the Catholics of Rome and the world to pray for the success of the ecumenical council during May, the month of Our Lady. The Pope's appeal was sent to Clemente Cardinal Micara, Vicar General of Rome. But the Pontiff added: "Our voice is turned at the same time and with the same confidence toward the dioceses of the whole world." Pope John said the Second Vatican Council "was convoked for the good of souls and is providentially destined to have beneficial effects on everyday life through a more just arrange- ment of institutions and of international life in truth, justice and love and in the freedom of Christ. This most noble aim, which human efforts alone cannot achieve, depends on the all-powerful gift of the Lord." ...... : ....... The Pope asked for the prayers of bishops, priests, nuns, families, youths, small children "and particularly those who suffer in body and spirit and who offer their hidden sorrows to the Lord and who are called upon to offer a collaboration of ir- replaceable value for the Mystical Body of Christ." Priests who will be honored include: The Rt Rev. Msgr Joseph L. Walter, J.U.D., Officialis of the Archdiocesan Tribunal, and pastor of St. Teresa's Parish, Seattle; Rt. Rev. Msgr. Cor- nelius M.

May 2 (NC)  A former Prime Minister, of Peru warned here that unilat- eral action by the U.S. or any other nation of the Ameri- cas in regard to Cuba could aid Soviet designs in the west- ern hemisphere. Pedro Beltran told the 53rd annual convention of the Cath- olic Press Association that the Communists "mean to stay" in the hemisphere, and he made a strong plea for American na- tions to stand united against this common enemy. Beltran, Peru's Prime Min- ister and Minister of Finance from 1959 to early 1962, was the main speaker at the conven- tion banquet May 2. Now pub- lished and editor of La Prensa, a daily in Lima, Peru, Beltran said later in his speech that Catholic journalists are in a key position to help bring about inter-American under- standing. He stressed first that Cuba is the nerve center of opera- tions for Communist subver- sion of Latin America, and that a base so useful to the Soviets "is not going to be easily relinquished." "To understand the real threat of Cuba," he continued, "the first thing to bear in mind . . is the fact that the Com- munists are in the hemisphere and that they mean to stay." Beltran said that while peo- ple in North America look upon Cuba in the light of "im- mediate danger of acts of Drivers Should Obey Highway Laws, Pope Says VATICAN CITY (Radio, NC) -- His Holiness Pope John XXIII said that drivers should observe highway laws to pro- tect "that incomparable gift of God which is life."

"We see Cuba,,' he said, "as an ideal center of opera- tions for the subversion of Latin America, far handier and more effective in Khrushehev's plan for this part of the world than Moth- er Russia. Russia is too far away. A different language is spoken there. Eurasian cul- ture is inscrutable. "Cuba, on the other hand, is on target. Not only is the lan- guage the same but the way of life is a replica of what is found in Other Latin American countries. Even the climate is favorable, L a t i n American youths who are enticed to Cu- ba for indoctrination feel at home immediately." Warning that "the Commun- ists are mounting to attack our countries from within," Bel- tran continued: "Our American family must stand united. As in any family, the individual members should not act merely for their own self-interest, if they are to compose a family wherein each member trusts the other completely. nerstone of our Americas! The essence of trust is never to approach a vital problem from only one point of view or try to resolve a common crisis alone, as if there were only one solution." Beltran asserted that "far more grave" in the Cuban sit- uation than the enslavement of a valiant people or a Russian beachhead in the Americas "would be a disintegration of trust within the American fam- ilY." "The Soviet is using Cuba as a scalpel to sever North and South America," he stated, "and thereby create a chasm of suspicion that may haunt us long after Fidel Castro is a footnote in hemispheric his- tory: We must not allow this to develop. No action should be taken unilaterally by any of our nations that would assist the Russians in their drive to divide the American family," Beltran said the Catholic press role in inter-American unity "can be very great in- deed."
