I OTHE PROGRESS Friday, Nov. 23, 1962 Father Szeman THflnHS TO communism ather Duchesne, a Maryknoll priest who is the Director of Catholic Relief Services in Vietnam gave us some very interesting information the other day. For centuries the Montagnards, who now number 600.000 have lived in the mountainous high plateau of central Vietnam, untouched and unconcerned with the world outside. For a century Catholic missioners have endured untold hardships in their efforts to reach these forgotten people scattered through a mountain vastness that has no roads or other modern means of communication. But all that has changed with the arrival of the Communists. Now the Reds are forcing them to flee into large settlement areas--right into the arms of the priests who had sought them out with dif- ficulties in their inaccessible villages. The Communists, since 1948, missed no opportunity to ex- ploit this highland minority by arming them and training them in combat The Red Viet Cong cadres went so far as to I Society f0r The Propagation of the Faith Rev. Stephen Szeman Archdiocesan Director 907 Terry Avenue, Seattle 4MA. 2-8880 study the local dialects, marry the village girls, learn tribal customs and ceremonies, eat their primitive food, endure the cold and even file their teeth, a painful sign of courage and manhood. During the past several months, however, the Communists have been forcing the unwilling mountaineers to cooperate more actively by giving food to the Communist guerillas, to serve as porters and to act as spies under threat of death. They are forced to take an oath to report national army movements&apos;, sealing the oath by placing the barrel of a revolver in their mouths. Included is a demand that the movements of the mission- ers be reported. Unwilling any longer to be the pawns of the Communists, a general exodus to the lowlands has begun. In this migration some 60,000 have abandoned their mountain fastness for life in government resettlement towns. Yet these little people had to be sturdy to survive the moun- tain climate to which they fled centuries ago to avoid persecu- tion by the plainsmen. They then fled in search of peace and now are returning for the same reason. Priests and nuns work intensively among them. In the Dalat area the Paris Foreign Mission Fathers, the Canadian Re- demptorists and recently the Vincentian Fathers, as well as the Franeiscan Missionaries of Mary all have centers of activity running the gamut from catechist schools to home economic courses, from medical training to printing. It is our duty in charity to help these 1960 aborigines who still live on the edge of the stone age Thousands of them are ready and waiting for the faith. Thank God considerable person- nel is available. One hundred years of missionary endeavor has shown some little progress but now the Communists have thrown them into our arms, pushed them right through the door of the church--if we are ready for the challenge. !!! .- ,:--. . .:::$i :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: 8. ::!::!i::17iii!ii!iiiiiiii:: . .  1..*,.]i :i!: i!iii.ii!ii:! i'! iii . ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: '.2:], :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: ..... ....................... !ii!::::i!i::i::::::::.::ii:.:...ii::i::i::ii*:" .::::ii:::/:!ii:::::i::i::ii:!ii::i::{:::: :i::i:i:!:i:i@! iii- ":i:i:.

Sunday Law Upheld In Missouri St. Louis, Nov. 22 (NC)  A three-judge Federal Court ruled here, 2 to 1, that the Missouri Sunday closing law is constitutional. The suit against the 136-year- old law was begun early this year by the Cardinal and Lead- er sporting goods firms, which maintain concessions in two St. Louis County stores of the Gov- ernment Employes Mart (GEM) company. They brought suit after county authorities began enforcement of the law and arrested a num- ber of persons working in GEM stores on Sunday. Named as de- fendants w e r e Missouri Atty. Gem Thomas F. Eagleton, St. Louis County Prosecuting At- torney Norman H. Anderson, and Col. Raymond W. Hensley, superintendent of the county police department. A companion case was brought by GEM and two as- sociated firms as a challenge to the method of procedure under the law. In that ease the Federal court ruled unani- mously against GEM. The U.S. Supreme Court in 1961 upheld the Sunday closing laws of Maryland, Massachu- setts, Pennsylvania, South Caro- lina and Ohio. Since then it has refused to review several other challenges to such laws. McMurrin Again Affirms NEA Criticism SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, Nov. 20 (NC) -- The former U.S. Commis- Sees Council One Of Freedom VIENNA (NC) -- The Car- dinal Archbishop of Vienna predicted here that the Second Vatican Council would be marked by absolute freedom of speech. Franziskus Cardinal Koenig told newsmen recently that the preparatory phases of the council had been character- ized by such freedom, and that the council woul d be conducted in the same way. The Cardinal said that the council was not convoked as a result of any outside pressure, and that the Fathers would act in complete freedom. Another mark of this coun- cil, he said, is its "international character."
