That became clearer than ever as a result of the conference of that group just held here. A warning was sounded at the meeting that, in order to be consistent, POAU ought not to confine itself to anti- Catholic activities, but ought to branch out in opposition to other things, some of which are of di- rect concern to Protestants who are sincere in their religious prac- tices. Observers said this notice had a sobering effect on at least some of those taking part in the conference. Dr. Edwin McNeill Poteat, presi- dent of POAU and a former presi- dent of the Colgate-Rochester Di- vinity School, insisted that the ac- tivities of the organization are aim- ed only at maintaining "the prin- ciple of separation of Church and State." He said it was necessary to emphasize this point, because of "the perverse effort to make us appear an anti-Catholic organi- zation." But Dr. Poteat convinced hardly Catholic note to the conference.

I 1 Rockford--Members of the Holy Name society of St. Mary's church will receive Italy Commun- mn in a body at the 8:30 o'clock Mass on Sunday, Feb. 11. Men of the parish who are not yet mem- bers of the Holy Name unit are invited to receive Holy Communion with the parish group. The Holy Name group will be seated in the "north, front" section of th~ church. St. Mary's Holy Name society is affiliated with the national organization. The second Sunday of each month is Communion Day for Holy Name members throughout the country. GeM Mltd lwks e milk Dr. Poteat's claim took another beating when Paul Blanshard ap- peared as a speaker at the biggest meeting of the conference. Mr. Blanshard, running true to form, had some recommendations on U.S. --Vatican relations. One of these was that Catholic Bishops in the United States, being "appointed abroad," should be registered un- der the Foreign Agents Registra- tion Law. Perhaps the most important single development of the whole meeting, certainly the one that seemed to give the members the most thought, was a talk by Leo Pfeffer, assistant general counsel of the American Jewish Congress. Mr. Pfeffer, who has taken part in POAU meetings before, said heI disliked very much to have to make the observation, but the fact was: that Protestants go along with movements such as this only so long as it doesn't hurt them. If POAU is going to be consis- tent, he said, it is going to have to oppose more than a U.S. mission to the Vatican and free bus rides for parochial school children. It is going to have to oppose the whole body of compulsory Sunday obser- 12 W. 5tephensen ~ Freeport NEWBERRY'S Wallpaper end Paint Headquarters Modern Styles in Wallpapers and Paint 22 W.

Mr. Pfeffer sat down in a pro- nounced hush. There was little or no discussion of the point he raised.
