News Section--Page 10A THE OBSERVER EDITION OF OUR SUNDAY VISITOR Sunday, June 18, 1950 % Father Corpus Christi Procession In Rome Vatican City--On the Feast of Corpus Christi, during this tloly Year, the Eternal City yesterday witnessed a manifestation of Faith which in intensity, magnitude and- splendor nndoubtedly has few. if any, parallels ill the modern his- tory of the ChtlFt.h. St. Peter's Square itself became an open air basilica which dwarfed in size even the enormous temple which forms its background. Half a million of the faithful from all corners nfi the earth gathered in the square and its environs to join with His ttoliness Pope Plus XI] in an act of homage to Christ in tile Eucharist. ('enturies-ohl traditions came gloriously to life in this public profession of a triumphant time- less faith. When the Sovereign Pontiff, from the altar erected in front of St. Peler's central portal, gave Eucharistic Benediction to the half-million kneeling men, women, chihtren, stretching as far back as the Tiber brid~.'e and Castel St. angola, the Holy Year, now almost six months ohl, seemed to have reached its climax. Readers Urged To Spur Morality In Press By Their Use Of Patronage New York --(NC)-- Americans by their patronage should encour- age the press to maintain a high standard of morality, the Very Rev. Francis J. Connell, C.SS.R., de- clared on the Catholic Hour broad-_ cast. "Those who read the papers as well as those who publish them have tile duty to support the eth- ical standards of the press," Fath- er Connell said. "The publishers ~,'ould soon withdraw objection- able features from their columns if the people refused to buy theii papers. "And so, [ say to all Of you who read the daily papers: Don't pat- ronize those journals that seek aensationalism rather than truth in their presentation of news, or those papers that unjustly defame' men and women in private or pub- lie life, or those papers that spec- ialize in sordid and. indecent stories and pictures." The Catholic Hour speaker point- ed out that freedom of speech does not include the right to vilify and to calumniate. "It does not include the right to foster among the citizens of our country a spirit of disloyalty and disobedience toward those who govern tin," he continued. "Rea- sonable and just criticism of those in public office is something help- ful toward securing good men as our civil officials; but unreason- able and unjust denunciation of our public servants tends to destroy the sense of patriotism among ou~ people." Rep. Borden Named Head Of House Group Which Handles School Aid Bills Washington --(NC)-- Rep. Gra- ham Barden of North Carolina has been elected chairman of the House Labor and Education Com- mittee. He was named to succeed the late Rel). John Lesinski of Michigan. His election was not unexpected since lie ranked second in seniority to Mr. Leainski on the committee. Representative Barden was the author of the controversial Barden Bill in the Federal aid to education field, which was condemned by Catholic leaders of the country as discriminatory and un-American. The Barden Bill shut the door on any aid to non-public school pupils. It failed to obtain committee ap- proval. Representative Lesinski was a champion of Federal aid to all school children. orr on Home Furnishing DE GRAFF BROS.

A non-Catholic business man in Rochester, N.Y. is demonstrating old-fashioned American good-will, at considerable cost to himself, by transporting children of two faiths to religious instruction classes. He owns and operates at his own ex- pense a bus and two automobiles which take Catholic and Presby- terian children to their respective churches for religion classes. The draft of a law whereby priests could be forced to reveal to public authorities knowledge gain- ed in the confessional is about to be introduced in the national assembl$ of Yugoslavia, according to a dispatch of KIPA, Swiss Catholic news agency. ~[ VirtuallF every social and eeon- i omic reform enacted in this noun- NEWBERRY'S Wallpaper nnd Paint Headquarters Modern Styles in Wallpapers and Point 22 W.
