l, Cuba and the Christian By JOHN J. ECKHART to survive. This should nei- ther surprise us, nor shock us. It has been the tool of the despot throughout history. "Senor Gironella&apos;s essays on China indicate a less degree of involvement, but no less are they sealed with integrity, and above all, that shining Giro- nella talent. He writes of Mug's rise to power, and the circum- stances that made it possible for the multi-millions of China to be enslaved in the dialectic of Marx and Lenin. Much of the author's time is taken with history, easily dem- onstrable and more detailed in other works. But no matter what this Spaniard writes, it is worth the reading. His is the viewpoint of a man, not a judge, looking out from his own consciousness, beholding the acts of other men, and then transcribing the effect of those acts on the totality of history. He does this very well. "CHRISTIANITY AND REVO- LUTION," by Leslie Dewart, Herder and Herder 320 pp., $s.s0 N the other hand you would take a long and full day's march to read a book to match this attempt. It is quite possible that this book will be the new norm in biased pedan- try. I would not believe it pos- sible to cloak such an out- rageous apologetic in the for- mal, very formal gown of the academy. But it is to the credit of the author's lack of writing talent that he fails in the attempt. When is a duck not a duck? If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, looks like a duck, and sticks with other ducks, then by most rules of etiological reasoning, the thing is a dock. Dr. Fidel Castro has pro- claimed himself a Marxist- Leninist Communist (formally implying materialistic atheism), Castro has imposed the des- patio rule of the "dictatorship of the proletariat" upon the Cubans, he gives over his ear to the advice of "Che" Guevar- ra and Raul Castro, two avowed Marxists, and he per- secutes the Church as does the Communist, but in all of this, he is not really and truly, I mean way down deep in here, he is not a Communist. This is what our learned as- sociate professor from St. Mi- chael's College would have us believe. Dorothy Day, the old battler from the Catholic Work- er movement, has been stoutly maintaining this same patent mvopia since the Cuban revolt. To say it is the United States fault, and to some degree this is true, or to argue that it is the Church's fault, cannot im- pugn to those institutions the completeness that is Castro the Communist. And it is this constant child- ish barking at the U.S. that tends to bore, rather than illu- minate. . . "it is possible to con- clude that American diplomacy brainwashed Castro into Com- munism." "The sincerity of the Ameri- can government's words of re- gret became suspect within 24 hours." "The pressure was being ap- plied to Cuba by the United States, not the other way about." "In short the United States did not intend to negotiate." (more bad faith) "The United States, on the other hand, was not in a posi- tion to inspire confidence, but for a different reason." "The American people, thus, are least happy of all with themselves." And so it goes, all couched in the most learned of lan- guage, but failing to obscure the author's positive posture of apology. In following this particular line of evaluation, Dr. Dewart must delete as much as possible as concern Castro's espousal of the Marxist ideology and its nec- essary associations. For this reason we note a near perfect vacuum as related to the influence and import of such persons as Guevarra and Ftdel's brother, Raul. ' The author's philosophic first principles are to be accepted, if accepted, with much care. His concept of the Mystical Body, as well as his nersonal ideas on the "right" of evil (as mani- fest in the particular of com- munism) to be expressed, are charged with libertarian self- deception. The truths the author exposes are readily acceptable. War be- comes more unthinkable every day. The Christian witness finds increasing urgency in expres- sion. Man, being human, can err. Faults can be distributed with some equity. But his conclusions, based on misunderstanding the ex- istential reality of Marxism (as written by Marx) have led Dewart into some strange worlds. It would be well not to fol- low. "ON CHINA AND CUBA," by Jose Maria Gironella, Fides Publishers, 175 pp., $3.50 EVOLUTION is a well known commodity to Jose : Gironella, indeed to any Spani- ard. Gironella fought in the revolution that ripped his own Spain, and resulted in the first defeat of Marxism in the field. The scars of the Spanish Civil War have not healed, but in the case of the author they have had the effect of injecting the softer glow of charitable humanity into his clear objec- tive vision. Gironella understands why men revolt. He understands why others follow the leaders, the visionaries, demagogues, and sometimes frenetic radi- cals that lead men to over- throw one order to establish another, sometimes better, sometimes worse. The reader will find few works that better exemplify, without cramming a principle down the literary throat, seeing sin, evaluating evil, under- standing sin, rejecting evil, and during the complete process never losing sight of the pneu- matic importance that is the humanity of the sinner, our brother. If he castigates Castro for having betrayed the revolution, he never barbs his pen with poison, or hatred. This by the way is an ever present phe- nomena of Gironella, this total lack of hatred. And it is an important note in 'the finality of a "Christian" writer. But he recognizes hate, and this is his greatest criticism of Castro's new Cuba. While it is sincerely attempting to eradicate illiteracy, while it creates at least the effort of bettering the lot of the peas- ant, it is still a government that must hate, and feed hate Feature Films On Television Bellingham KING-TV (NBC) Channel KVOS.TV Channel 12 KIRO-TV (CBS) Channel 7 Tacoma Seattle KTN'T-TV (CBS) Channel 11 KOMO-TV (ABC) Channel 4 KTVW-TV Channel 13 MOTION PICTURE CLASSIFICATION BY NATIONAL LEGION OF DECENCY: A-I--Morally Unobjectionable for General Patrcmge; A-lI--Morally Unobjectionable for Adults and Adolescents; A.III--Morally Unobjectionable for Adults: A-IV--Morally Unobjectionable for Adults, with reservations; B--Morally Objectionable in Part for All; C--Condemned; NR--No Rating Available.

Sheen RESIDENT Cleveland once received a letter from a 13-year-old child which read: "Dear President, I am in a dreadful state of mind and I thought I would write and tell you about it. Two years ago, I used two postage stamps that had already been used. Enclosed please find three stamps. Now, my dear President, will you please forgive me." This young girl gave more than she had stolen, as did Zacharias, who promised Our Lord he would return four fold what he had stolen as a tax collector. But reparation for sins goes beyond sins of theft. Being forgiven a sin is not the same as making up for it. If I steal your watch you will forgive me, but you will also say: "Give me back my watch." When you confess adultery, marriage outside the Church, alcoholism, big weddings and nothing for the poor, cutting corners in busi- ness, do you think a mouthful of Hal. Mary's whispered in a minute satisfies the Divine Warning: "Repent or you shall all likewise perish?" Your confessor would help you more if he told you to give $50 to the Holy Father through his Society for the Propagation of the Faith. It would impress upon you the gravity of your offense and give you the added joy of helping spread the Faith after endangering your own. Get into the habit of helping the poor in reparation for each serious sin you commit. The road to alcoholism could be stopped by a 10 dollar tax on every second cocktail--and what it would do for the lepers! Or put a reparation box in your room, and at the end of the month send your penance-sacrifices to the Holy Father through his Society for the Propagation of the Faith. Then, when the time comes to make out your will, give not to those who already have much, but to those who have nothing. If you want more information on how to leave your money to the Holy Father for the poor of the world write to us at: 366 5th Ave., New York, N.Y. 10001.

Revamp Needed in S. E. Asia (Continued From Page 1) Lodge's letter of resignation released by President Johnson was dated Friday, and was worded in a most friendly tone. Earlier surmises that he was dissatisfied with Administration policies in South Vteinam or that he would soon relinquish his position for reasons of health seem to have been with- out foundation. The delay in making his de- cision public is probably at- tributable to the time re- quired to name his successor, which would seem to indicate that even the President had no prior knowledge of Lodge's intentions. Gem Maxwell D. Taylor, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, has been named the new envoy to South Vietnam, to- gether with U. Alexis Joh n- son as deputy ambassador, a newly-created post. Gem Earle G. Wheeler was appointed to succeed Taylor as Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman. Naming of U. Alexis John- son, Undersecretary of S1ate for Political Affairs, as second- in-command at Saigon has im- portant significance. Johnson has had wide ex- perience while U. S. ambassa- dor to Czechoslovakia, engag- ing in futile discussions at 65 meetinp.s with Wang Ping-nan, Red China's ambassador to Po- land. The two held periodic closed sessions in Warsaw over several years regarding release of U. S. prisoners in Red China. Later, Johnson was am- bassador to Thailand. It would seem that the dual appointment has been made in order to permit Taylor to devote his major efforts to military affairs while Johnson will be in e h a r g e of diplo- matic matters. All in all, appointment of this team appears to be a good choice. Armed Escalation The new appointments are significant for another reason. Every official statement of Administration s p o k e s m e n seems to indicate that there will be an escalation of mili- tary offensive against the Viet Cong guerrillas. London and Paris have been requested to pass on the word to Red China that the U. S. means business and that Pe- king should be warned to keep its hands off Southeast Asia. Similar warning has been di- % rected to North Vietnam. At the same time President Johnson at his press conference Tuesday made it clear that the U. S. does not want a "wider war." 'I have said before that there is danger in Southeast Asia," he declared. "It is a danger brought on by the ter- rorism and aggression so clearly, if secretively, direct- ed from Hanoi." Had he been willing to spell out the whole story he might have added that Hanoi is backed and supplied by both Red China and the Soviet Un- ion. The President enunciated four basic principles of our policy in Southeast Asia, not only in South Vietnam. They are: "America keeps her word. "The issue is the future of Southeast Asia as a whole. "Our purpose is peace. "This is not just a jungle war, but a struggle for free- dom on every front of hu- man activity." Apparently, in the face of a Iosing campaign there and mounting criticism of Admini- stration policy in this country, the President has decided that a complete revamping of the U. S. program in Southeast Asia is long overdue. It would seem that the Ad- ministration has made tip its mind to pursue a definite pol- icy. Conference Fells In his remarks to the press President Johnson stressed the point that U. S. action in Southeast Asia is the result of "those who are breaking the peace of Laos" and refuse to live up to the Geneva agree- ments. "We specifically sup- port full compliance with the Geneva Accords of 1962," he said. That the Communists have gotten the message of a re- vived U. S. policy and pre- sumably a determination to implement it was shown this week in several ways. For one thing, Poland decid- ed to send back its representa- tive on the International Con- trol Commission in Lags to Vientiane. He was recalled last month at the height of the Communist drive into the Plaine des Jarres, up- I Legion Of Decency First-Run Movies Showing In Seattle A---Unslnkable Molly Brown. eVlva Las Vegas, What A Woy to Gol Other Movies Currently Showing A-I--It's A Mad Mad Mad Mad World, Murder At the Gallop, Bridge On the River Kwal, Follow That Dream, P.T.

Now that the U .S. has taken a firm stand and dispatched its planes to make reconnaissance flights, backed up by armed aircraft, in order to find out what is going on since the com- mission was deactivated as a result of the Polish delegate's absence, the Reds seem to have second thoughts. It is probable, however, that Poland will continue to frustrate every effort of the commission to function, as it has been doing all along. The second indication that the Communists have received the U. S. message is that the Pol- ish-proposed plan for a six- power meeting preliminary to a 14-nation Geneva conference has not as yet been held. The Soviet Union Friday asked for a postponement of a session which would include delegates of Britain, the Sov- iet Union, India, Poland, Ca- nada, and the rival factions of Laos. The U. S. has opposed such a meeting as well as another general conference in Geneva. The third indication of Com- munist anxiety resulting from U. S. pronouncements of de- termination was the report this week that Moscow warned Pe- king it would give no military aid if China became embroiled in a full-scale war. That sounds plausible and follows the usual Soviet pat- tern. The Soviet Union does not want to become involved in a full-scale war for the simple reason that it cannot afford to fight such a war. And besides, why fight when one can get everything he wants by peaceful eoexist- ence? Of course, the Soviet didn't mean what they appear to have said, for they will defend Com- munism wherever it is, but it was intended to delude the U.S. Calendar SUNDAY, JUNE 28, SIXTH SUNDAY AFTER PENTE- COST, MASS: Dominus Forti tudo- The Lord (Green).

Kune, Ph.D. Professor of Sociology. University o Notre Dame How does one live with an invalid? My mother, father, younger sister, and myself live with an older sister, now almost 30, who is confined to a bed or a wheelchair as a result o[ an accident ]0 years ago. She will never walk again. But she dominates the family. Her medical costs are excessive. Everything goes [or her. 1 quit college to help support her; ,ny mother is illtaking care o[ her. I am bitter about it. OUR SISTER'S illness is much graver psycholog- ically than physically, and it is certainly g r a v e physically. To face a lifetime of confinement to bed or wheelchair as she has since 20 would be an unnerving experience for anyone. Yet some do it, and do it almost graciously. Others never learn to live with a handicap. You must realize your sister is emotionally ill. Emotional illness is not contagious in the ordinary meaning of the term, but broadly speaking it is. Your letter shows you have con- tracted or are in the process of contracting it. Instead of being bitter, which will help neither you nor your sister, why not look at it objectively? Your sister's accident and subsequent prognosis must have dealt her and the family a horrible shock. The initial reaction of all must have been pity; in the case of your sister, for herself; for the rest of you, for her. This was inevitable but what has happened since was not. Regardless of the experience we have, we all try to define its meaning, We rarely do so alone. Relatives, friends, and oth- ers are always telling us what an experience means or should mean. We seldom remain unaffected by it. When your sister first learned of her plight, she would have been positively heroic if she didn't feel a twinge of sorrow about her future. But as weeks, months, and even years, un- folded, she was forced to face the inevitable and make the best of it. She might have never turned into a synthetic Pollyanna who laughed it all away, but she might have stlffered less self-p!ty, ff permitted. ICK PEOPLE, even those mildly ill, are not quite themselves emotionally. They are apt to be more quick-tempered than usual, a bit querulous and demanding. For those seriously ill, this is one of the basic points every nurse and physician must learn. It must be dealt with kindly,but firmly. If not, the nurse and phy- sician can never help the patient. For families with invalids, the same point must be learned. Perhaps it is best described as a sweet reasonableness. Bifler medicines must be swallowed despite the patient's pleas. Essen- tial routines must be adhered to in the face of the invalid',, tears and objections. Pity has to be replaeed with intelligent and constructive sympathy. If not, the person becomes a ty- rant. As difficult as it may be, the families of invalids must reach the point where they treat the ill person, IN SO FAR AS POS- SIBLE, like other members of the family. In the long run, this may prove as helpful to them as any measure that can be taken. When the family has achieved a sensible attitude toward an invalid, the next obvious step is whatever rehabilitation is prac- tical. Today all sorts of possibilities exist. In most large cities them are rehabilitation centers for the handicapped. Consultation with a physician or a social agency may bring surprising knowl- edge of what may be done. But in assuming that physical rehabilitation is impossible, there are still opportunities for psychological rehabilitation. There are associations and leagues of shut-ins. Placing an in- valid in touch with one of these is recommended. It is almost invariably helpful to learn that there are others worse off than we. T IS LIKEWISE helpful to learn how others handled their han- dicaps: American literature is filled with such encouraging examples. So too are the lives of some saints. Helen Keller and Franklin Roosevelt leap to mind. More recently there is the case of Roy Campanella, the great catcher of the Dodgers. Today there is increased knowledge of how useful haudi- capped persons can be," and the question of even full time em- ployment need not be ruled out. Above all, there is the spiritual aspect of such illness and suffering which, with divine help, may be borne with a holy forti- tude. Only God knows to what extent the pain of such individuals, offered up as penance, may be helping all of us. "With deeply moved heart have We returned from Our pilgrimage. We will carry forever in Our memory the impressive and moving cene$ at the holy places which speak with such eloquence oj the li/e oj Christ, ft.-.
