IlL THE BOLSHEVIK KISS OF DEATH Infallible mark of incompetence or of dis- loyalty in discussion of foreign affairs is to consider Russia a safe ally of the "Democ- racies" against Germany. Among the most voluble of the advocates of a Russian alliance among American newspaper and radio com- mentators are H V Kaltenborn oi the Co- lumbia Broadcasting System and Pearson and Allen who run the Washington blerry-Go- Round. \\;Ve have often wondered why. The real Russian position in European af- fairs is well described by a competent corres- pondent, Sisley Huddleson, writing as follows in The Weekly Review, London, April 27, as follows : "Before we invite anyone into our house to protect us against burglars, we must be sure that he is not an assassin. Hitherto, Poland and Rumania, across whose territory Russian troops must pass on their way to the West, have taken the very sensible view that it is better to regard Russia as a foe than as a friend. Once Russia is let in, how shall Rus- sia be put out? France, through the alliance with Russia, which was taken to give Russian agents full right of subversive propaganda and impunity in ali destructive activities in France, narrowly escaped a revolution, and has suffered greatly and permanently in its substance. Nor should we forget the fate of the League of Nations when it accepted Rus- sian 'help' [that ruined the League--editorial note], the fate of Spain when it opened its doors to Russia, the fate of Czechoslovakia when it linked itsel/ with Russia. Russia's friendship is /atal. The embrace of the bear is to be shunned ..... "The truth is that Russia is more than will- ing to encourage a European war, and even to play a minor part if necessary, with the sinister purpose of provoking revolution not only in Germany but in England and France. But to engage its responsibility in actual com- bat is quite another matter. Mv own infor- mation is that it is incapable of a sustained military effort; and even if it were, it has no intention of weakening itself. When Czecho- slovakia was in danger last year it might have been expected that Russia, bound by a definite pact, would have instantly gone to the rescue; it remained aloof. When Poland prepared to take Teschen by force oi arms, Russia threat- ened Poland; )oIand ignored these threats, and Russia conveniently forgot them. This yearthe incorporation of Bohemia and Mor- avia, the conversion of Slovakia into a Pro- tectorate of the Reich, the seizure of Memel, the vassalization oi Lithuania, and the econ- omic subjugation of Rumania -- all events which should have touched Russia-- failed to disturb its indifference. War is for others-- not for Russia. Russia would welcome war, provided it is not fought on Russian soil. War would afford the Comintern a splendid oppor- tunity, and incidentally would, by reducing the adversaries to the proverbial condition of the Kilkenny Cats, leave Russia secure; but to imagine that Russia is on the side of the 'Im- perialists' as England and France are called [they are called innocently or knavishly de- mocracies over here.--editorial note]--is to exhibit singular naivety. "\\;Ve must beware of playing Germany's game, but we must equally beware oi playing Russia's game. \\;Ve must resist German hege- mony [predominance] but we must not fall nder the domination of the Russian forces of disorder and destruction. We must see that we do not fight to make the world safe for Comm.unism." Sisley Huddleston in The Weekly Review [Lofldon] for April 27, 1939. ALL BUT WARMONGERS FOR PEACE All sane Americans are for preserving the peace and keeping out of the Hell's broth brewing in Europe and Asia; they say that it would be senseless, suicidal, insane for us to plunge into it; that we would lose not only our liberties, but oui shirts as well, and wreck democracy and liberty and civilization in the bargain. "So General Johnson, who says, rea- son (ii observed) will keep us out of war; so Colby, the great secretary of state for Wil- slon ; so the leaders ot Labor, Green and Lewis, who say the workers are solidly against our entrance into the European and Asiatic mess. Even Ernest I,indlev, able New Deal advo- cate, deprecates the devilishly lying propa- ganda pushing us into the war and Mr. Roose- celt's taking sides, therein, which he says de- stroys his efficacy as an intermediator. T'he Europeans are determined there shall be no world war. they know its awful devas- tations, and they are nervously apprehensive (especially the F, nglish) lest American war- mongers preclpitate the dreadful conflict.

THE WAY TO WORLD WAR The antecedents of the present crisis and the way we can precipitate a world war by favoring one side or the other to it are ad- mirably brought out in a recent address by that eminent Jesuit, Father \\;Vilfrcd Parsons Dean of the Graduate School, Georgetown University, and former editor of .America, in the following c.pital passage: Now in all this where do we stand? To compre- hend our position, we have to go back to the time when Anthony Eden was foreign minister for Great Britain. It was Eden who departed from the tradi- tional policy of Great Britain, which was never to have me, re than one enemy on the Continent at one time. Eden drove Italy into the arms of Germany, and made them forge the Rome-Berlin axis. The fol- ly of this disastrous policy became at last clear to the English, and they drove Eden out of power. At this moment Chamberlain is making desperate efforts to repair the damage, by winning Italy away from Germany again. We also fell under the Eden spell, and we still are there, apparently Very cleverly he used the Soviet tactics in this country, which happened at the time to fall in with the aims of the imperial- isms. We were told that collective security was the only way to keep the peace. What he meant was tha't it was the way to tip the balance of power to- ward Great Britain an0 France by bringing us in on their side. What the Communists meant by it was something different They meant to use the democ- racies to crush Fascism, which at the present is one of the great, if not the one great obstacle to the spread of Communism in Europe. Stalin expects every democrat to do his duty. From the point of view of Great Britain and France the ideological holy war for democracy is a piece of folly. England does not go to war to change people's forms of government. She is inter- ested in their foreign policies--as they affect her. But the holy war still has possibilities as far as the United States is concerned. If the Communist pro- paganda can bring us along to the belief that the war, if it comes, will honestly be another holy war to preserve democracy and to impose that form of government on Germany and Italy, well and good. It is a dangerous game to play. No matter who loses, Russia wins; if Germany is beaten there wi]l be chaos there and then a Red dictatorship; if France is beaten, the same thing will happen there. In any case, the only victor will be Communist Russia. One thing the Russians saw very clearly. This was that as long as Fascism prevails in Germany and Italy there is no possibility of her gaining a foothold in those countries. To my mind, Fascism is a foL'm of collectivism and totalitarianism which is as bad as the totalitarianism and collectivism in Russian. But that is not the point. The point is that the Communist maneuver and the imperialistic maneuver happen to coincide tot the moment, end each is trying to use the other for its own purposes. Each is trying to get us in one that side; the British and French to crush German imperialism, the Rus- sians to crush the only obstacle which remains to thmr triumph in Europe. So there is an international crisis in democracy. But it is a crisis which comes not from any danger to democracy itself, but to the imperialism with which democracy has unfortunately allied itself. The nations are not ruled by any law, we must not forget. They arc ruled by feat', and therefore by armed might. The only thing that keeps peace in Europe today is not love for democracy, or for jus- tice, or for fraternity, or any other fine and noble thing. It is simply and solely the fear on each side that if they go into war they may lose and be crushed. If either group can get us in on its side, they will fear no longer. Is it not clear, then, that the one sure way to keep the peace, and to pre- serve what democracy has left in the world, is for us to be deaf to both the Communist and the im- perialist propaganda, and maintain peace by staying out of the ideological and imperialistic conflicts of the old world? We have presumed to throw the last lines of this excerpt int oheavv emphasis because they are important and deserve the attention of the reader.

All through the centuries whenever opposition arises against religion, it is always the Catholic Church which is the center of at- tack and persecution. This historic fact should consti- tute a most weighty and convinc- ing argument to the serious student and conscientious searcher after truth, that of all Christian religions the Catholic Church must be the only true religion of Christ, be- :ause she only meets in.fu!H'l ent Jesus' prediction: "Whoso ver killeth you will think that he doth a service to God." The hate of the Communist and his determination to exterminate all religion can be explained and is somewhat natural. Directly inspir- ed by the working with the devils of hell, he is bent on destroying all belief in God. However, what is less understandable and inexpli- cable is that there are always people found who profess to be- lieve in God and maintain to be in- spired with true zeal for God's cause, who will let no opportunity pass to belittle and attack Cath- olic principles and vilify every- thing Catholic.

FREEPORT. ILL. pe,.son has reeoxered from the ill- ness after having received the sacred anointing and has again re- lapsed into danger of death" says Canon 40. .One of the direct purposes of Extreme Unc'ion is the overconl- lug of the weakness of the soul in- duced by sin. A soul must, there- fore, have been capable of com- mltting sin in order to receive Ex- treme Unction. Children who have not obtained the use o reason (ordinarily be- fore the completed seventh year of age), and adults who have been insane from infancy, cannot re- ceive Extreme Unction because' they have not sinned. Q. Can a person who is ill ant ;oeced to :eke medicine at regular intervals ulotain permission to re- ceive Holy Communion without keeping the strict Eucharistic fast? .A. One need not obtain permis- stun in such cases if the following facts are verified. If this persen has been confined to bed (need not be in bed every hour of the day) for a month and there is =o hope of speedy recovery and his onfessor advines him to receive, he may receive Holy Communion once or twice a week, though he has taken medicine or liquid food. Tis privilege was first :ranted by Pope Plus X. Of course, if tl, e nature of the illness is such chat it constitutes a real danger of death, then one may receive I-loly ,,iaticum not having fasted. Q. Can a Mass be said to remit the guilt of sin? A. The guilt of sin is not re- moved directly by the Mass, but indirectly oy reason of the special graces granted by God to bring about the right dispositions in the I n sinner. Th s, by assisting devoutly I at Mass, a person in the state of I grievous sin may receive the efi-] carious grace of repentance and] thus be disposed for the remitt?mce I of his sins in confession.

Is the holy water blessed on Holy Saturday to be used by the people in their homes during the year? A. The Easter water, blessed en Holy Saturday. is to be used only in Easter week. strictly speaking. This holy water is used primarily for the baptismal water and for the blessin of the people and heir homes on Holy Saturday "]'he faithful may take some of this ater home and use it for all de- votional purposes for Easter week Although Easter water is only for Easter week, it is not to be understood that the private use of this water after the week (octave) is forbidden, or that such use Js devoid of spiritual benefits, for this water has received a con- stitutive blessing, and hence re- mains a sacramental as long as It remains in existence. However, it is advisable to dispose of the Easter water, after the octave, in some devotional manner, and to obtain holy water which is blessed every Sunday before the Aspergcs preceding the Mass. The private practices of the faithtul should conform as much as possible ith the public usages of the Church Q. Can a child who has not reach- ed the age of reason receive E treme Unction? A. "Extreme Uuetion can be given only to the faithful who af- te coming to the use of reason fall into dager of death either through illness or old age. In the same illness that sacrament can- not be repeated, unless the sick ism itself."--Cardinal Cereijeira, of Portugal, quoted in The Catholic Worker. I distractions suffered while acting I this capacity, if I am obliged to assist at another Mass? A. No. The distraction suffered by an usher does not prevent his hearing Mass. The distraction is rot intended, is not volutary, and the usher has the intention of of- fering his Sacrifice in union with the lrie. About the Bible GENUINITY OF THE GOSPELS ! We may say that when an auth- for signs his name to his work it is similar to one signing his name fo any important document: he vouches for its reliability, its cor- rectness, its contents. He makes himself responsible for it. We :should know the author of a book so e can judge therefrom how =much faith we can give to the book When we know the author we can find out whether or not he was able from all angles to write authoritativly. We know the Gospels were writ- ten by the men whose names are ascribed to them from the testi- ninny of reliable witnesses, that is, from explicit external evidence. We have a long list of honest churchmen who state that the Gos- pels were written by the Evangel- ists whom we take to be the auth- ors. These men lived in the second century and were in a position to record the authorship of the Gos- pels. They would not dare to as- sign a Gospel to an Evangelist were it not correct, for their error would not go unchallenged. A few wi'iters who give evidence of the genuinity of the Gospels are: Papias, Bishop of Hieropolis ia Asia Minor and a disciple of St Charge U. S, Nazis Are Anti-Catholic The 800 American Nazis and Fascist groups are bitterly anti- Catholic, according to Look maga- zine. At the present time, however, says the magazine they stress an- ti-Jewish propaganda. It quotes one of their leaders, E. J. Smythe, of the Protestant War veterans, as saying, "We, like Hitler, believe that the Roman Catholic Church should be driven out of our political life." Catholic Drama Group Projected Oconomowoc, Wis.--Plans for the organization of an official dramatic group within the sphere of Catholic Action and under the direct lead- ership of the Roman Catholic Hierarchy, were announced here by Rev. M. Helfen, national president of the Catholic Dramatic Move- ment. John the Apostle. He wrote about 120. Justin the Martyr (105-167), Clement of Alexandria (150-215), Terbulian (160-240), Origen (15- 254). There are other noted wri- ters. We shall give a sample of testimony taken from Irenaeus (140-202). Bishop of Lyons and a disciple of Polpcarp who was a dis- ciple of St. John the Apostle: "Matthew also issued a writ- ten Gospel among the Hebrews, in their own dialect... Mark, the disciple and interpreter of Peter, also handed down to us in writing what had been preach- ed by Peter. Luke also, the com- panion of Paul, recorded in a book the Gospel preached by him. John, who also had leaned upon His breast, did himself pub- lish a Gospel during his resi- dence in Asia." The Gospels were so very care- fully watched that it was al_:uost impossible for any mistake regard- ing authorship to be made. The Gospels were the religious foundn- tion for the faithful; they were their religious constitution; they were read at the religious servics and were well known; hence, what others said about the autho,.'hp of the Gospels would not have been accepted unless it were true. China Now For Conversion" New Orieans--"In China lhe people as a whole are ready for conversion," the Most Rev. Paul Yu-Piu, Vicar Apostolic of Nank- ing, said at a reception given in his honor here. "The Chinese had some prejudice against our mis- sionaries befm'e the present war," the Bishop said. "but during the few .years of fighting all prejudice has vanished."
