PAGE 10 THE OBSERVER FRIDAY, JULY 21, 1961 Ill Latin American Countries @ By S By Floyd Anderson (N.C.W.C. News Service) BOGOTA. Colombia -- The Catholic press in Latin America, with 24 daily papers and hun- dreds of weeklies, is at times maintained at tremendous sa- crilice. In Asuncion. Paraguay, the editor of' the Catholic Action weekly, Communidad. was jail- ed and tortured for taMng photo- graphs at a student celebration of the 150th anniversary of Paraguay's independence from Spain. The Catholic daily in La Paz. Bolivia. Prescencia. is another newspaper maintained at great cost by the Catholics so that the Church may have a voice in B~livia. It has been attacked and damaged by leftist mobs four times in the past two years. Not Needed Everywhere The Catholic press in Latin America. especially the newspa- pers. was born to defend the Church. Not all the Latin American ccuntries have Catholic daily newspapers. In some it is not necessary, or was not necessary in the past. Often the secular dailies present the Church's viewpoint on current matters of importance. In other words, the Church is able to make its stand on current issues known. But in other countries, it is or has been dilficult or impossible for the Church to publicize its views. It has happened that the daily press was antagonistic to Cath- olic beliefs. There, of course, there was an urgent need for a daily Catholic paper. Countries Differ This is a diiferent situation from that in the United States. where there is no Catholic daily paper, but many weekly papers which restrict themselves al- most exclusively to matters of particular Catholic concern and interest. This can be done be- cause the U. S. daily press gives a more objective reportage than the Latin America press, which tends to be pohtical. The countries in Latin Amer- ica differ, too, in degree of il- literacy, in personalities. In North America we tend to view Latin America as one huge con- tinent of "look and feel alikes," whereas its people are more in- dividualistic than North Amer- icans. And we only need con- sider, for instance, the differ- ences between Mississippi and Marian Theatre "A Different Drummer," star- ring Robert Stack, will be heard on Marian Theater on July 23 over the Mutual network. In this presentation, recounted in 1954, Robert Stack appears in the role of an infantry corporal, who, as a P.O.W surrendered his American heritage to his communist captors in Korea. The corporal looks back over 10 years of agonizing disillusion- ment and realizes that he had been duped, been a victim of trickery and had been sold a phoney political bill of goods. His plight is symbolic of all who lost. faith in their God and their country. Federal Loan WASHINGTON -- The federal housing and home finance agen- cy has announced a $337,000 loan to Our Lady of the Lake college, San Antonio, Texas, to help ii- nance housing for 82 women stu- dents. The college is conducted by the Sisters of Divine Provi- dence. Requiescant ALGONOUIN -- Harry d. Keeling, 71, St. Margaret Mary parish, July II.

New Jersey to realize the differ-] published. The great problem is one of distribution: the noun- ences in our United States. One high-ranking prelate said that one of the problems of the Catholic press in Latin America is the tendency to think that the editor of a Catholic paper must be a priest, and that this pre- mise is actually supported by theological argument. talus are high and the only quick way of sending anything is by air, and that is expensive. There are. for instance, no trailer trucks such as we see in the U.S.; they could never make it up and down the steep and sometimes hazardous mountain roads.
