PAGE 2 THE OBSERVER '" FRIDAY, MAY 5, 1961 N Scientific Atheism in Red School NEW YORK -- Courses on scientific atheism have been in. troduced in Soviet medical col- leges, according to an article translated from a Russian pub- lication. The article, by T. Tkachev, is translated into English in the current edition of I.C.R.S. Medi- cal Reports, a publication ot Fordham University's Institute of Contemporary R u s s i a Studies.

He also says it is unfortut hate that the academic program for medical sciences has not de vbte more time to the exposi. tion of "religious abberahon." 10,000 Mile Trek for Official WASHINGTON -- The Nation-- al Catholic Welfare Conference Youth Department and the Navy may have nothing 'else in cornmon, but in both outfits you hai-e ample opportunity to see the world.

Parents Form TV-Censor Group WILMINGTON, Del. -- A par- ants' organization has been set up here to keep objectionable literature, television and movies away from children.
