#--THE PROORESS i Friday, Sepf. 14, 1962 Signs Of Life here have only been 20 ecumenical councils in 20 centuries of Christi- anity. The second Vatican Council which will open October 11, 1962, will be ecu- menical council number 21. The non- Communist world turns its eyes hope- fully to Rome praying that out of this sacred conclave will come a clear answer tothe Red menace which threatens Chris- tian survival in Century 21. It is no secret that atheistic Cam, munism with its false social doctrine of material utopia has fascinated the minds and imaginations of mentall), and physi- cally starving human beings all over the world. It is likewise no secret that neither the United States nor any other nation has found an effective means to turn the tide of Red aggression. Christianity alone holds the ulti- .mate answer to materialistic atheism. fit is only to a race of men on fire with the knowledge and love of God and in love with their neighbor because he bears the image of God that we can look for Truth and Love and Social ustice to triumph in a fallen world. ]S: Communism boasts that Christianity been given a chance these past 2,000 mrs and has failed. It must be with ea t uneasiness that Khrushchev and his n&men look to the gates of St. Peter's tese days. Behind the doors of the Vafi- ca0is supposedly buried the dead life- i6Ss body of Christianity. But, alas, move- ment and signs of vigorous life are ap- pearing. The Church which to some may h-ave appeared slumbering is certainly not dead. For she is about to hold the most significant ecumenical council in her 000-year history. As successors of the Apostles begin to pour into Rome this week, the world will see that they are not returning to grave  they are rather returning home to regain strength and courage from its divinely appointed source. More than one sentry sent by Khrushchev to guard the grave of Jesus lest Christians continue to dupe the world into believing "pie in the sky," will fall trembling to their knees as they watch a "dead Christianity" come to life before their very eyes. We have every confidence that this coun- cil shall turn the tide of atheistic Com- munism once and for all. In the words of Chesterton: "Christianity has not been tried and found wanting; it has been found difficult and for the most part left untried." Under the leadership of Pope John XXIII, the world will once again be in- spired to try Christianity no matter what the cost. And once men begin to live Christianity, not just talk about it, then it will be Communism that will be found so terribly cheap, so frightfully wanting. Pope John himself has stated in a motu proprio, Appropinquante Con- cilia, issued September 7 that "The ap- proaching ecumenical council, by virtue of the number of those who will par- licipate in its meetings, evidently will be the greatest of the councils held by the Church thus far." Men and women living in this cen- tury are offered a once-in-a-lifetime op- portunity to witness the, marvelous man- ner in which the successors of the Apos- tles guided by the Holy Spirit ,preserve, define and clarify those sacred teach- ings given the world by Christ 2,000 years ago. The Progress will be giving its columns over to maximum coverage of this most important event in the issues that follow. We encourage our readers to keep informed of the Council's action ),i homage at Christian dogma's dead week by week . Holds Promise ,= A top Catholic Charities official has said the new public welfare amendments hold prom- ise for aid recipients, but he rtgretS the legislation does not lS'ovide for full use of volun- tary agencies. Msgr. Raymond 3". Gallagh- or, secretary of the National 0nference of Catholic Chari- ts, praised Sen. Eugene J. McCarthy of Minnesota for an amendment which permits all cild-care institutions to take in a Federal aid program for neglected children. fMsgr. Gallagher, whose con- fence coordinates activities of some 375 offices of Catholic Charities throughout the nation, was asked for comment after Pvsident Kennedy signed July 25 the public welfare amend- taunts, a $325.8 million pro- g It!in which revises many areas Fthe Federal government's sprawling welfare effort. The largest of the programs [feeted by the legislation are t Federal aid-to-dependent children (ADC) and old age as- sistance. Other areas include aid to the blind, aid to disabled persons and a new child-care day center program. "The amendments h o I d considerable promise of re- habilitation for relief recip- ients and for disorganized families on aid-to-dependent children programs/' s a id Msgr. Gallagher. The ADC program includes making Federal payments to children whose parents are un- employed, as well as to those whose parents are dead, dis- abled or absent. Msgr. Gallaghei" said that "the dearth of trained person- nel on public welfare staffs will make realization of the noble goals in the ADC program a difficult task." "We regret that the bill in its final form did not provide for maximum use of the -staffs and facilities of exist- ing voluntary agencies in meeting,the needs of these people," be said. "It is felt that such Con- - gressionul endorsement of the role of voluntary agenc- ies and institution would have helped to maintain the desirable partnership between public and voluntary pro- grams. "In view of the increased promise of help in this bill, we believe that all forms of wel- fare service should have been encouraged and supported in their effort to serve." Msgr. Gallagher said that Sen. McCarthy's amendment "reaffirms the fact that in- stitutions of charity offer an es- sential service to our nation." McCarthy sponsored in the Senate floor, it provided that Federal funds could come into play only if a court assigns a' neglected child to a foster- family. If sent to an institution, Federal funds would have been denied. In the final version of the bill, adopted by a Senate- House conference, the Mc- Carthy amendment was limit- ed to two years' duration. Russia's 'New Ethics;' 6'EN E W E D "Berlin l crises" are logical ac- companiments to the lat- est Moscow-Peking offensive. It;idirected against the Eu- Community and its Common Market.

Staunch Foes h been openly admitted the Kremlin for some time /at 'the most astute and 'unch foes that it has are ancellor Adenauer and Pres- ent de Gaulle of France. If  could detach the United tates from these shrewd al- ls,qt feels that it could easily fluenee American opinion in own way. It is not surpris- /tg "then that the World Marx- "pt- Review states: " the alliance of the clerical- /ilit:ary dictatorship of Aden- | By Louis F. Budenz auer with the authoritarian re- gime of General de Gaulle has become the backbone of the Common Market. Nee-Fascist organizations are raising their heads and rallying under the 'Europn' banner." It is also not unexpected that the Peking Review should assert that "U. S. supremacy in the capitalist world is going downhill," be- fore the growing power of the West European countries. Both of these allegations are intended, when smuggled out into our general press, to make us inclined to draw back from alllance with West Germany and France The strategy laid down by Khrushchevin the World Marx- ist Review is precisely along these lin. The first ttfing that the Krem!in and its followers are to do is to "intensify the contractiolas" among the West- ern powers. That is, they are to incite British and American opinion against Adenaner and de Gaulle. The next step is to bring about "greater economm co- operation between the social- ist world and the newly emerg- ing countries of Asia, Africa, and Latin America." This makes it clear that the more aid we give in funds or trade to Red Poland and Red Yugo- slavia, the more are we un- wit.;ngly giving the Kremlin a means to extend f,mds and trade m the countrie they Wish to lake away from us. The third and perhaps big- gest proposal that the Com- munists are asked to push is that made on May 30 by Krush- chev. It calls for an interna- tional conference on trade under United Nations auspices. This would form-an "inter- national trade organization" which would fully wipe out the trade advantages of the United States and the Common Market by bringing in the Soviet bloc on favorable terms. Review Confident If these things are done, the World Marxist Review con- fidently predicts: "socialism marches ahead confidently, capitalism cannot escape de- feat." There will be plenty of people in America who are not Communists t h a t w i I 1 look kindly on Khrushchev's pro- posal for "peaceful extension of trade" with the Soviet bloc. There are tens of thousands of such people who have read Un- gardedly the No, 148 issue for 1962 of Soviet Union. the maga- zine of the Life- Look- Paris Match variety which comes here in English. translation. That issue expends many pages on depicting the glories of the Lenin Library of Mos- cow, with its 22 million books in 173 languages. Many un- thinking people will consider this great display of literature proof that Soviet Russia can- not be guilty of the callous barbarism at the Berlin wall. They will forget that the Ger- man people out of which Hitler- ism arose were the most liter- ate on the face of ,the globe. Soviet authorities catch this idea, toe, for in the same issue of Soviet Union they have a finely presented arti- cle on the "New Moral "Cede" in Soviet Russia. It is sup- posed to be brought about by the "new ethics" which are created by socialism, "when the people did away with the exploitation of man by man." This might sound very fine were it not that three times during the past year Soviet Russia has been compelled to extend the crimes under which the death penalty is imposed. The same critical judgment which sees through these de- vices can be marshaled to halt Klarushchev's drive to weaker our economic structure. 7 Cuban Heel Educators Issue Report On Dangers Of Communism , By J.
