Sunday, June 23, 1946 THE OBSERVER EDITION OF OUR SUAY VISITOR News ection--Yage 'New York Times' Editor Calls Pope Peace Champion Washington, June 17.--(NC)-- Never before in history have we experienced a "confusion so com- plete, so extensive, so insidious" as we have in the world today, and in all this confusion only "one voice rises above the tumult to stress moral and spiritual values and to ]?oint the true way to peace with 3ustice, the voice of the Vicar of Christ."

Mr. MacNeil charged Russia with de- i liberately fomenting this state of confusion as a means toward pro- n|oting universal communism. i "While peoples have lost their bearings in this man-made inferno and their leaders are perplexed," Mr. MacNeil said, "Pope Plus XII stands calm and sure as the repre- sentative of the Prince of Peace. A solitary figure in the overwhelm- ing gloom, he holds aloft the bright torch of the God-given truth. He I recalls the commandment to love thy neighbor as thyself. He de- mands justice for all. He offers mandkind hope in place of despair, faith in the face of defeat, and the courage to go on living and work- ing and praying." As a result of the Pontiff's lead- ership, Mr. MacNeil pointed out, "the Catholic Church today offers the world the one real solution for its problems," because "it informs statesmen that they cannot suc- ceed until they take God into con- sideration." So far, he said, states- men have ignored the fact that man has a soul and consequently have dealt "only with part of the prob- lem, the less important part, for it is the soul that gives human dignit- and individual worth to a man, and makes him something better than a political slave or an economic serf. If we are not to sink lower and lower, statesmen must come to the Catholic truth of the brotherhood of man under the fatherhood of God." The Times editor accused Rus- sia of the "greatest crime in all history" in refusing to facilitate peace treaties. "The Soviet Union is deliberately sabotaging the ef- forts of its wartime allies to make a decent peace," he charged. "Rus- sia does not want the return of prosperity and tranquility outside its borders, for these do not suit its purposes. Instead it wants chaos, a complete and prolonged chaos." This is the Russian foreign pol- icy in action, the speaker said, adding that Russia's purpose is that of "fomenting trouble where it does not exist and of aggravat- ing and prolonging it where it does exist. Communism thrives on misery and despair," he added. Mr. MacNeil also charged the communists with "carrying on a world-wide campaign to destroy faith and morals." "While they spare no creed or church," he said, "they center their attack on the Catholic Church. The leaders of the Kremlin know that they can- not win world domination until they extricate God from the hearts of men and women. They know that Communism cannot live with Christian principles. In their cam- paign against the Church they use all the weapons in their armory. UNDERSTANDING I CHILDREN SPONSORED BY THE IOWA CHILD WELFARE RESEARr.H STATION Learning To Eat Spinach has made Popeye fam- ous. It has made his promoter rich. It always provides gag writ- ers with a theme for a big laugh. Spinach has hecome a symbol for the never ending battle over eat- ing which goes between parents and children. The struggle to get children to eat is widespread in modern times. There are several cau-es for this conflict but one chief cause lies in the parents' anxiety. As the )arents learn more about proper feeding they grow more inclined to force chihlren to eat what the books say they should eat. As soon as force is applied, the child begins to resist. He loses his appetite. Helpful suggestions for teach* lug the child to eat are to be found m many pamphlets and books. Following are a few of these sug- gestions. First. be sure that 'the doctor says the child is in good physical condition. Second, remember that a great deal of conversation about the child's refusal to eat may be very satisfying to him. It often make. him feel very important to be the center of attention. Next, build up a good healthy appetite. This may be done by giving him plenty of outdoor play, winter and summer; plenty of reg- ular sleep, regular hours for meals no candy or ice cream between meals. Also, remember that the child's stomach is much smaller than an adult's. Therefore if small serv- ings are given at first, they are less discouraging to the finicky eater. He should gradually learn to eat more as times goes on . The last but most important fac- tor is an unworried and unhurried i parent.

Bromley Oxnam, )resident of the Federal' Churches of Christ in America, ires imo mgned the loyalty of over 8,000,- 000 Catholic men and women who served in the armed forces, Edward T. McCaffrey, national commander of the Catholic War Veterans, questioned the sincerity of Dr. Ox- nam. In a letter Friday (June 14) McCaffrey advised Bishop Oxnam American Catholics have one indi- visable political loyalty which can- not be assailed, as well' as one re- ligious loyalty and as good Cath- olics "we must be good Americans." The veteran leader challenged the Methodist Bishop "to cite a single instance of a so-called political schism when a CathoI'ic was obliged to make a choice between loyalty to Country and loyalty to Church."
