about the missionary work of the Church. This is especially so since we have a brand new Pope Paul VI. He is the first Pontiff to have traveled the length and breadth of Africa. Before becoming Pope, he expressed his admiration, hopes 'and constantly growing intention to help the missions that he had visited. As he said upo his return: "It sometimes makes one won- der whether we really.are capable of teaching them or whether already these people do not provide us with examples and les- sons of superior fidelity." His impressions and memories tell us of great faith, and of a great desire for renewal and of hope concerning the religious and political future of Africa. As Archbishop of Milan, he was instrumental in sending priests and Sisters from his Archdiocese to found two missions in Southern Rhodesia. During this time, also, an International College for Overseas Students was founded in Milan. If we but just look at a few of his talks and sermons and writings we can almost feel the mission pulse of our new Holy Father. At the Second Italian Week of Missionary Studies he said: "The question of the missions should not be treated only on the descriptive and sentimentulplane in order to give the missions publicity, but also scientifically . . . and the purpose of this -Priest00 Takes Pledge To Rebuild i Total Abstinence Union I c :. realist.

Let us glance with great satisfaction on this phenomenon ef the laity becoming apostolic." And then on another occasion at a missionary seminar he said: "We are not Christians for ourselves alone, but also for others, in order to save our brethren. All Christians are in fact called to spread their Faith by helping the missionaries in charge of founding the Church amongst pagan populations. The coming Council will certainly lay the maximum stress on the Church's missionary vocation." After his journey in Africa when he celebrated a Pontifical High Mass on Thanksgiving he:said: "Consider the Epiphany as the first missionary feast and the beginning of the tourneys which bring Christ's messengers to the pagans... In our Diocese mis- sionary work is at present flourishing. We shall give it new impetus... However, the Church today is not satisfied and urg- es every Bishop, and even every DioceSe, to undertake some missionary activity directly. Let no one be afraid, no one in- active, no one indifferent, no one idle, no one a parasite. Rather, let everyone take up service and be active for the Kingdom of God." Finally, when he became Pope Paul vI in his first broad- east to the world he said: "We are also pleased to encourage and bless from the bottom of Our Heart the beloved mission- aries--the apple of Our eye-.who, in every continent, in the Church's advance-pasts, are spreading the Gospel of Christ. Let them always glory in the Cross of the Lord Jesus Christ by accepting out of love the diffieulties and trials that occur, in the certitude that God's help will never fail those who live and work for Him alone." As we can see from these few brief notes taken from the life of the Holy Father he laas:a real deep interest that is a tre- mendous example for all of us in his love for the missions. vinced the 9-year-old union can be revitalized by pumping young blood into it. So he's set his sights on an intensive member- ship campaign among the na- tion's Catholic youth. "We plan to revive samovar the union's once popular fea- tures, 1 i k e the 'Temperance Cadets,' with their colorful uni: forms and c r a c k exhibition drill teams," Father McAndrew said. "We'll employ other in- ducements of a p p e a 1 to the young people and we'll operate on a parochial and inter-paro- chial basis with youth move- ments." The union held its 91st an- nual convention here August 5 to 7. Father McAndrew, profes- sor of Biblical languages at St. M a r y's Seminary, Baltimore, was reelected president. Other reelected 'officers include Mar- garet A. McCaffrey, Hartford, Conn., vice president; Elizabeth M. Campbell, Philadelphia, se- cretary, and James Markham, Torrington, Conn., treasurer. Discuss Youth Recruiting The convention business ses- sions were held in the May- The union was founded Feb- ruary 22, 1872 in Baltimore. It is an offshoot of the great temperance crusades conduct- ed more than a century ago in Ireland, England and the United States by the famed e r u s a d e r, Rev. Theobald Mathew. The union strives to promote temperance by the example of voluntary total ab- stinence among its members. Father McAndrew said the union reached its height around 1895 when it had some 55,000 members. It had strongholds in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Il- l i n o.i s, Minnesota and New York. Membership is Small "I'm ashamed to tell you," Father McAndrew replied when asked about the present mem- bership. He said there are some activities in Connecticut, Penn- sylvania and Maryland. But the Sulpician insisted there is a place for the union in this country today, where there are some six million al- coholics and tensions brought on by automation, the nuclear And in Quebec Province, Can- ada, the St. Joan of Arc total abstinence organization has be- tween 150,000 and 200,000 mem- bers, he added. Decline began gnawing at the union in this country some 50 years ago, Father McAndrew said, when other Catholic so- cieties mushroomed w it h in- surance and other benefit fea- tures that topped those offered by the total abstinence union. Ironically, Father MeAn- drew related, the near-death blow for the union came when that "noble experiment" Pro- hibition, went into effect in the country in 1920 and lasted until 1933. The realistic Sulpician ac- knowledged that in a way the union's requirement of a total abstinence pledge has deterred adult membership. In the plans for the youth recruiting cam- paign, Father McAndrew said, the union will have councilors and field directors, priests and laymen, who will not be re- quired to be union membei's. "We want to make it clear," Father MeAndrew said, "that he said. "There are too many persons who are inclined to drink, but in moderation, after they reach 21 and there's noth- ing wrong in that so long as it is in moderation." Want Women Members Father McAndrew emphasized that the union also is interested in women members. He said that the statistics which show there are six million alcoholics in the United States also dis- closed that a million of them are women. Father McAndrew is a na- tive of Archbald, Pa. He was ordained to the priesthood in 1926. Throughout most ef his priestly career, he has been a teacher. He taught at St. Pat- riek's Seminary, Menlo Park, Calif., from 1930 until 1952 when he came to the Balti. more seminary. Most of his priestly life, too, he has been interested in the activities of the Catholic Total Abstinence Union. He's prom- ised himself that the union will be rebuilt to some semblance of its former glory -- and he's the first to admit it's quite a pledge he has taken. Captive Nations Group Fear Pact With Reds "In point of cold logic," he said, "for us to enter into a pact with a party that in re- ality is in constant aggression against all these captive na- tions would mean a shameless acceptance of Russian ag- gression and the new Russian empire." Dobriansky said his commit- tee regards the partial nuclear WASHINGTON, Aug. 13. (NC)The chairman of the National Captive Nations Committee, Inc., said here it opposes a nonaggression pact with Moscow unless the Reds give heavy con- cessions for freedom. Lev E. Dobriansky, a George- town University teacher, com- mented in a statement on re- ports that the Kremlin is press- ing for negotiations for a non- aggression pa c t between the North Atlantic Treaty Organiza- tion and the Warsaw Pact na- tions.
