News Section--Page 4A THE OBSERVER EDITION OF OUR SUNDAY VISITOR Sunday, June 13, 1948 4 U. S. Has Best Government In World, Says Bishop Eustace Vineland, strongest case of all can be made out for the American "democratic capitalism" system, Bishop Bartholomew Eustace of Camden, declared in a dis- russian of the three distinct forms of government now pre- vailing in the world. The Bishop spoke at a testimonial dinner for Philip Rudich, manager of the South* Jersey Joint Board, Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America (CIO). since 1931. The three forms of government Bishop Eustace said, are com- munism as practiced in Soviet Russia; democratic socialism as practiced in Britain, and American democratic capitalism. Fascism and nazism are casualties of the war and cease to exist, he said. "There is no room in Soviet practice for civil liberty," the Bishop said. "As an economic principle communism implies the public ownership of all means of production. There is no place for individual enterprise. "Imagine what America would be without civil liberty; without] individual enterprise; and you have a state of affairs actually exist- ing in Russia," he continued. "Suppose the President of the United States to be in office for life; enabled to enact any decree in the absolute certainty of its being approved without interfer- ence from judicial processes such as the habeas corpus; unite to all this a dictatorial power over the economic life of the country and you have a picture of what Ame- rica would he and what Russia is." Bishop Eustace said Britain's "democratic socialism," denies "man's natural right to acquire and hold prodvctive property" and is an infringement "on an inalien- able human right to the detriment of the individual's personal inde- pendence." Remedies for the abuses existing in the world are not to be found in Britain's socialism, the prelate said. They can't be found there any more than in Russia's commu- nism, he said, and pointed to Ame- rica's "democratic capitalism," as the system in which all free men can thrive and develop. "There are weaknesses in our system," he said, "as shown in the crisis of 1929-33. There are some injustices in the system. Yet, withal, the strongest case of all can be made for it. Although in instances it may have made eco- nomic slaves of a few; it never yet has denied in theory that a man is free. An evil practice is bad enough; but a false principh is far worse." Bishop Eustace lauded Mr. Ru dich not only for the work he has done for the clothing industry, but also for his generosity to the Cam- Lightning Bolt Misses Priest By Five Minutes New Orleans--(NC)--Just five minutes after the Rev.

Southern Sudan Church Christianity First Introduced Shortly After Time Of Christ The author is a member of the White Fathers and a Washington, D. C., mission house superior serving as chaplain to a group of American scientists making a 2,500-mile trek into Central Africa. o uba, Anglo-Egyptian Sudan, --(NC)-- The southern part of the Anglo-Egyptian Sudan offers a golden opportunity for the Church at the present time in the opinion of Msgr. Stefan Mlakic, Prefect Apostolic of Bahr el-Gebel, with residence ,at Juba. While north- ere Sudan is solidly Mohammedan with the prophet's followers num- bering about seven million, the important tribes farther south, the i Bari, the Azandi, the Shilluks and ,Kinkas are joining the Church in great numbers. Christianity was first introduced into the Sudan shortly after the time of Christ. It was brought to the country by a minister of Queen Candace, who reigned during the lifetime of Our Lord. This min- ister had embraced the Jewish Faith and was later baptized by the Apostle Philip during a stay in Jerusalem. The Jews called thi: land Ethiopia, and it was from a capital at the mouth of the Blue Nile (Soba) that the Queen of Sheba went to visit Solomon. Christianity also spread to the Su- dan through converts made by St. Mark who brought the faith to Egypt. By the year 550, the Sudanese population, including their kings. .had embraced the teachings of ~.Christ. However, after the first invasion of Egypt by the Arabs around the year 700 the Sudanese Christians were in constant veril. In a battle in 1005 the Arabs kill- ed 30,000 Christians. In 1173 the Sudanese were again defeated and their conquerors carried off 70,000 as slaves. A century later the Arabs established their own king- dom at Dongola, destroying the re- maining vestiges of Christianity in that area. While northern Sudan is solidly Moslem, Mohammedanism has had little or no succes among the pagan tribes of the south up to the pres- ent. Stories of raids and the slave trade carried on by Arabs of the steepel of the church, broke a north are still fresh in the minds window and the holy water font, and smashed the rectory telephone, as well as destroyed the chair. St. Louis King of France parish, in a In Papal Academy suburb of New Orleans, was estab- lished in 1947. COOL OFF WITH ICED COFFEE For 63 Years We Have Sold Only The Finest Quality COFFEE.
