The statement relates that as far back as Civil War days, Congress has been called upon to' prohibit appropriations of funds to schools conducted under religious auspices, but before that time and since the Federal Government has disregard- ed the issue of sectarianism and concentrated its attention upon promotion of the general public in- terest. During the depression and during the recent war, the statement re- .inds, Congress has pursue." a pol- icy of '-awing no distinction-be- tween public and non-public insti- tutions, in the matter of student aid, school lunch, hospital, nurse training and other legislative aid programs. "We propose," the statement says, "that this bill be amended so that its benefits may be extended to every child in America who is receiving a sub-standard education regardless of whether the school attended is publicly or privately controlled.

An interesting example is 'that the foreign minister of that regime i a former official of the Soviet con- sulate in New York, Paul Rotoms- kis. As in all countries under Rus- sian control, the regime claims that there is no prosecution of religion. Nevertheless, teaching of religion in schools is forbidden and is con- ducted underground. Priests are being imprisoned and deported under the charge of c]laboration with the anti.communist Partisans. Churches are open, always crowded, and religious life is very intense. The real rulers of the country are the Red Army and the NKVD security police. Oppo, siion among the population against its commun- ist masters is so trong. however, that NKVD patrols are afraid to tay in ise.lated villages lest they be a.assina4ed. Many city and village officials have resigned their posts fearing popular resentment. An accepted method of uncovering the Lithuanian Partisans is that the body of an executed patriot is exposed for a few days on a public quare or church yard until ,the family recognizes and mourns the dead hero. Member.s of the family are subsequently arrested and con- fessions about other accompliees extorted. Lithuania is very intensly russi- fled and the Russian language is obligatory in all schools. Over one hundred thousand Russians from far away Soviet provinces have been brought into the country to assure a quicker merger with the rest of the Soviet Union. All young men have been fm-ced into the Red Army, so that Lithuania is today a country of old men, women and children. The nation is heavily garrisoned with Red troops, some of he divisions being called Lithu- anian. In these divisions only en- listed men and non-commissioned officers are Lithuanians, frcm sec- "Ask and it shall be given to you; seel and you shall find; " knock and it shail be opened to ?lou."----St. Luke zz:9 Begin Your NOVENA To Our Lady of the Snows Your petitions are offered before the shrines beginning the same day they are received.
