Hails Fight Against Anti-Semitism WASHINGTON -- T~he president of the American Jewish Congress has hailed Catholic and Protestant efforts to eliminate religious fac- tors contributing to anti-Semi- tism. Rabbi Joachim Prinz of New- ark, N.J said Jews are "deeply gratified" by the "searching re- examination of Christian teach- ings about Jews" which he said is underway here and overseas. He told Washington leaders of the AJC that Christian leaders recognize that some Christian traditions have contributed to anti-Semitism and that "the hor- rors of nazism as recited during the trial of Adolf Eichmann are the culmination of anti-Jewish prejudice." Among other recent develop- ments Rabbi Prinz praised Pope John's action in removing the phrase "perfidious Jews" from the Good Friday liturgy. He also lauded participation by Catholic and Protestant leaders in the pub- licatian, by the National Confer- ence of Christians and Jews, of a study called "Has Anti- Semitism Roots in Christianity?" Mark Uganda Independence RUBAGA, Uganda--Archbishop Joseph Kiwanuka, W.F. of Ru- baga has called for prayers of thanksgiving for the success of the London Conference, which ruled that this African nation will become fully independent Oct. 9, 1962. Uganda is a country the size of Oregon with a population of 6,700,000, of whom close to two million are Catholics. The coun- try became selfgoverning last March following the first nation- wide elections, which gave a ma- jority in the legislature to the Catholic-oriented Democratic party.

Outstanding Example In the background" of the Red leader's rhetorical query was the i fact that the government in the l summer of 1959 summarily de, creed~that religious--both men and women--were disqualified asi teachers Of religion in the schools. The decree was the first major step toward removing all religious instruction from the Polish school system. The process was complet- ed last summer. The ban on religious as teach- ers was an outstanding example of the regime's unabashed dis- crimination. But it was not the only one. Appointments of religi- ous priests as pastors or parish administrators are generally vetoed by local government bodies. Appeals against such de- tal posts without any reasons be- ing given. Health Minister Raj- round Baranski is on record as stating that Poland has a nation- al shortage'of 20,000 nurses. But despite high praise hospital ad- ministrators give nursing Sisters for their work, 30 Sisters have been dismissed from the staff of the Child Jesus Hospital in War-i saw and 20 Sisters were ousted from Pawlow Hospital in Poznan. In hospitals conducted by Cari- tas -- former Catholic institutions now under state administration-- Sisters are being replaced by lay people in administrative posts. In the case of the hospital at Wiele-on-Warta, the only reason given for the dismissal of the Sister-director was that she was a member of a religious order. The same situation exists in Bishops said. Seminaries Hampered Poland's seminaries, while not subjected to such openly discri- minatory actions as are members of religious communities, also have rough going in People's Po- land. Only last July it was re. ported that the national Office of Religious Affairs had banned four professors, including a bish- op, from teaching at the Catholic University of Lublin. The institu- Lion -- the last Catholic univer- sity surviving under communist rule -- reportedly had run into the sanctions because it refused Bishop Piotr Kalwa of Lublin, who is also university chancellor and a professor in its canon law school, and Msgr. Jan Nowicki, dean of the canon law faculty. As higher schools of theology, By Lisa Ferris Catholic Charities Staff The Rockford board of the Charities met Oct. 25 in the Charities staff room. Attend- ing the first meeting of the sea- son were the Rev. Michael J. Shanahan, director, Andrew J. Doyle, Donald M, Keenan, Dr. Charles L. Leonard, Mrs. iJack McGrail, Miss Mary Misuraca Maurice Owens, chairman," Stan- ley W. Roche, Golden Ruel, Mrs. C. N. Tulley, Raphael E. Yalden and Edward J. Zlener. Urging the board members to attend the conference on the "Il- linois Committee on Comprehen.; sive Family and Child Welfare",i which was held Oct. 26, at the Y.M.CIA Rockford, Father Shan- ahan pointed out the reasons for the meeting. Working with the Child Welfare bureau in Spring- field, an investigating committee was appointed to make a study on services which are being given to children living outside their own homes. Dealing with emotionally disturbed children living in their own homes, or services to the physically handicapped child were discussed and opinions given on how to better their present conditions. Another area which was dis- cussed by a separate committee was the services to children in foster homes. Are the foster homes suitable, could they be ira- proved upon? If so, how? The unmarried mother's com- mittee made an intensive study on services given to an unwed mother in this locale.

O.S.F director of St. Anthony Hospital School of Nursing, Rockford, was elected to serve a three-year term on the council of the Illinois Con- ference of Catholic Schools of Nursing at a meeting Oct. 26- 27 in Chicago. The Illinois Con- ference is a branch of the Na- tional Conference of Catholic Schools of Nursing and aims to improve nursing education in Catholic schools and colleges. schools operated by teaching sis- terhoods. Ursulines, Sisters of Nazareth and Sisters of the Im- maculate Conception are being removed as headmistresses, es- pecially in Warsaw and Poznan. Ignore Violation The Reds' drive against relig- ious has even extended to their own education. At the beginning of Setpember, 1960, Sisters were barred from schools for adult education in Cracow, Warsaw and Poznan. In refusing their applica- tions, the authorities acknowledg- ed that the action stemmed solely from their membership in relig- ious congregations. It apparently made no difference that this was a direct violation of provisions of the United Nations' Universal Declaration on Human Rights. Moreover, Sisters have been re- fused admittance to Poland's only religious nursing school, vio- lating both a memorandum the government's Office of Religious Affairs issued in March, 1959, and the Church-State agreement of December, 1956.
