XXIII appealed day for an end to the arms race and for the United Nations to be given the structure and means to safeguard world peace In an encyclical titled Pacem in Terris Peace on the pontiff called for reduction of arms stockpiles a ban on nuclear weapons and a general agreement tually on progressive disarmament and an effective method of control The Pope conflagration of war may be set off by some and unexpected chance He Even though the monstrous power of modern weapons acts as a deterrent it is to be feared that the mere continuance of nuclear tests undertaken with war in mind will have fatal con- sequences for life on the earth The Pope called for the rent of arms equality to be re- placed by universal acceptance of the fundamental principle that the true and solid peace of nations consists not in equality of arms but in mutual trust alone Writing as the of Jesus Christ Wintry Chill Doesn't Halt Spud Planting On the one hand crops are ing in On the other hand time temperatures are dropping to levels suspiciously reminiscent of its structure and in its vicar on earth and as reter of the very profound ing of the entire human the pontiff beseeched especially those who have the responsibility of public affairs to spare no bor in order to ensure that world events follow a reasonable and human course Pope John indicated he hoped the United Nations eventually might become a strong world But he did not ly mention what means it should have at its dis- posal such as a police force He A public authority having worldwide power and endowed with the proper means for the pursuit of its objective which is the universal common good in concrete form must be set up by common accord and not imposed by force But the pontiff said nations were right in yielding in obedience to an authority im- posed by force or to an authority in whose creation they had no part or to which they themselves did not decide to submit by con- scious and free choice Pope John said a world authority must be ered because national leaders in the modern world are on a ing of equality and are no er capable of facing the task of finding an adequate solution to the problems It is our earnest the Pope continued that the United encyclical or papal circular letter was the first of the 300 encyclicals issued since 1740 to be devoted exclusively to a systematic analysis of peace in all its aspects political social theoretical theological and prac tical It also was the first papal en- See POPE page 13 Okray Putting Up Packing Grading Building The Okray Produce Co will pu up a big new
