REFORmRTI0n OR REUOLUTI0n HE SITUATION IN LATIN AMERICA today is desperate and volatile. The social injustices and lack of equal distribution of opportunity in society have been going on for centuries. Now the only question is: will these inequalities be changed by reformation or revolution. Is Peru ready for a democratic transformation, or will the ive capital of Laos. The "coalition" was bound to end in collusion, collapse or collision. Which it will be, and when, is not yet clear. The Rightists, the Neutralists and the Communist Pathet Lao are represented in a cabinet that seems designed for dead- lock. Each party controls a separ.ate part of the country and Says World Is Weary Of Walls LAFAYETTE, La. (NC) "The desire for unity hangs over us like a breath of fresh air," Auxiliary Bishop Warren L. B0udreaux of Lafayette told a Religious Emphasis W e e k convocation here at the Univer- sity of Southwestern Louisiana. Speaking on "The Council and the Search for Christian Unity," Bishop Boudreaux re- minded the students: "We live in a world of walls and cur- tains--the Iron Curtain, the Berlin Wall--and we are tired of them. Behind them men SPECIAL! PRICE SALE RELIGIOUS ART PRINTS * INTERESTING SELECTION e SOME RARE, ONE OF A KIND e MANY SIZES e MOST IN FULL COLOR majority still cling to "old ways," thus risking a conflagration which would only benefit the Communists? June elections should clarify this issue; meanwhile the Church waits and worries. Until last year, when the Communists organized Peasant Unions, the illiterate workers had been living in serfdom for centuries. Now they refuse to work without pay, and the cry "a la Cubana" (as in Cuba) is heard in the land. One per cent of Brazil's population controlling 60 per cent of the arable land . . . farmers using their toes to sow seeds . . . food rotting on fertile acres because of lack of roads makes mar- keting impossible. Such is the situation in Latin America, where one of every two people depends on the soil for a living. There is consider- able arable land, but less than half el it is cultivated. Existing farms are inefficient, the workers little more than serfs. With good reason, LAND REFORM IS A RISING CLAMOR IN ALL OF LATIN AMERICA. What is the Church doing to help solve this crisis? "There is not a bishop in Latin America today who does not stand four- square behind land reform," organizing credit union and co- operatives, pressing for speedy rural developments. Some ex- amples: PERU: At the prodding of an American missionary, 23 In- dians each put up $1 to start a self-help bank eight years ago. Today this is the largest credit union in Latin America, serving more than 40,000 people through 200 branches. Bishops of three dioceses are now negotiating to divide large Church properties among the peasants. CHILE: The Bishop of Taica has "sold" 180 hectares of Church property to 18 families, loaning each the money to buy a tractor and a herd of cows. COLOMBIA: The Archbishop :of Medellin has given all per- sonal goods to the poor and transformed his palace into a school for peasants and workers. His decision to share dinner each day with two workers has had a great psychological effect on the country. Before land reform is an actuality, the farmer must have land, know-how and incentive. The Church also hopes to give him dignity! @ Cut out this column, pin your sacrifice to tt and mail it to Father Szeman, Archdbeesan Director of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith, 90?

The troika formula has p r o v e d tricky. An "immediate task" of the coalition government was to unify the three armies. It is clear to the whole world they have not been unified. In fact, two of them are more sharply divided from each other now than they were last summer. A section of Maj. Gem Kong Le's neutralist troops has ap- parently left him and come closer to the Communist Pa- thet Leo. He and the main body of his men have moved further away from the Com- munists. The split has led to bloodshed, which has devel- oped from assassinations to armed conflict now reportedly involving the Pathet Leo. Last May and June, Maj. Gee. Kong Le joined the chief field commander of the Com- munist troops, Brig. Gem Sing- kapo Chounramany, in visiting Communist governments from East Germany to North Korea. Now Kong Le denounces the Reds for trying to make a Com- munist colony out of Laos. The zones occupied by the Help Build Jungle Airfield grow small.

In general, the north can be said to be held by the Communist Pathet Lao, the south by the rightists, and the two cities of Vientiane and Luang Prabang by the neutral- ists. Many government officials probably favor the neutralists but they watch anxiously to learn how the wind is blow- ing. While the south is largely controlled by the rightists, Com- munist soldiers and agents from north Vietnam still pass through southern Laos on their way to wage guerrilla war in south Vietnam. It is believed that many north Vietnamese Communist soldiers are still in northern Laos. Ra- cial similarities make it easy for them to blend with Laotian troops and the general popula- tion. The International Control Commission a ppea r s to be largely ineffective. It is still imoossible for mis- sionaries to reenter the zone controlled by the Communists. Thus considerable numbers of Christians are deprived of Mass and the sacraments. The Pathet Lao authorities have still failed to give any in- formation about the fate of five priests who disappeared in the territory held by them.

Relic Of Martyr Age In Garden Of Premier TOKYO, (NC)--An ancient stone lantern standing in Prime Minister Hayato Ikeda's gar- den has been identified as a Christian lantern, a relic of the age of the Japan's Chris- tian martyrs of the 17th cen- tury. The lantern stands under a tree at the approach to a mini- ature bridge over an artific- ial pond. It was identified as an authentic Christian lantern by two officials of the Chris- tian Ancient Monuments Pre- servation Association. They went to see it at the request of Chis'ato Onuki, sister of Premier Ikeda's wife. Miss Onuki is a Catholic con- vert who is a member of St. Ignatius parish in Tokyo. Cardinal Koenig Cardinal Mindszenty Early Solution 'Unlikely' ROME, May 22 (Radio, N.C.)--No quick solution is likely in the case of Josef Cardinal Mindszenty, according to the Austrian cardinal who saw him in Budapest in mid-April and has arrived here to report on their interview to Church authorities. Franziskus Cardinal Koenig, Archbishop of Vienna, told newsmen on his arrival May 16 that many factors are involved in Church-State negotiations in Red Hungary concerning the possbl e departure of the Hungarian Primate from the U.S. le- gation there. But Cardinal Koenig, who met the press briefly at the Rome airport, said the negotiations about Cardinal Mindszenty are "the business of the Vatican" and declined to comment on his role in them. Asked to give his opinion about the possible future arrival of Cardinal Mindszenty in Rome, he said only: I do not believe there will be a rapid solution." New Dictionary Has Record Number Of 'Catholic' Words NEW YORK (NC)--Catholic- ism is represented by a record number of new words in Web- ster's Seventh New Collegiate Dictionary. Among them are clerk regu- lar, consulter, Red Mass, pos- tulator, Real Presence, Divine Office, Forty Hours, the Way of the Cross and quasimodo. Clerk regular is defined as "a religious combining monas- tic vows with the ministry of a diocesan priest." Quasimodo comes from 'quasi mode geniti infantes": as new'born babes, words of the Introit for Low Sunday. Congregations and orders of the Catholic Church are more fully represented for the first time in a desk dictionary. Th e ones defined include Mary- knollers, Claret(arts, Vincen- tians and Xaverian Brothers. The newly published April 3 dictionary, the first new band- sized dictionary in I0 years, gives more intensive coverage of religion in many aspects, be- liefs and phases than any pre- vious editions. Included are line drawings of: the many types of crosses, ta- bles of the Gregorian, Jewish and Mohammedan calendars, and the listing of different ver- Lake City Area Shop At Your Friendly IGA FOODLINER 145th & Bothell Way sions of the Bible, both Old and New Testament.
