He sent his own chief welfare worker to a three month course there. A College should be established Here As soon As possible he insists. Or. Turner and his employees have made a film in technicolor of the life of the firm and the work it is doing for employers and workers. At the end this question is raised Why is the firm so organised in reply the film switches to a bust of Leo Xiii and a voice de clares that this was part of his vision and it is the wish of the Ernest Turner group that Leo Xiii s vision will be fulfilled in their works. Last week the firm s 50th Annivera Pope Leo Xiii sary was celebrated by a lunch in London s Waldorf hotel. Sir Frede Rick Handley Page headed More than 100 leading industrialists who were guests. The chief speaker was for. Joseph Christie s.j., of farm Street. He spoke to the captains of Industry about serum Nova rum the workers charter. Holy father s first press interview peace before Sovereign rights 1vtati0ns must give up some of their Sovereign rights and a. Self interests if a just and permanent peace is to be achieved his holiness Pope Pius Xii told the associated press american new gathering Agency in a precedent breaking interview some weeks ago. Charles h. Gupta and John p. Mcnight of the . S Rome Bureau who were received by the holy father on the eve of the eighth anniversary of his Coronation re ported that the pontiff was Bright cheerful animated obviously much better in health than a year ago when he had talked with them at the end of the consistory ceremonies. He set aside a precedent and Al Lowed the correspondents to set Down his answers to their questions though not As direct quotations. In answer to a query on his efforts to make the Church responsive to the. Increasingly Complex charac Ter of present Day civilisation the holy father made the following sum Mary bitter fruit the Church is. Made up of men and men Are commonly of the age in which they live. Hence the Church necessarily must have an Alert in Terest in each age in which her Mem Bers live. And she will always do her Best to make it possible and increasingly desirable for them to be efficient eminent influential children of their age and environment provided their loyalty to god and his Church is in no Wise weakened. If opposition Between the Church an the modern world is becoming More and More stressed in certain quarters it is because there Are leaders and. Groups in Power to Day who. Aim deliberately at giving the modern world a character and policy of conduct that Are anti Christian even anti god. The world has already tasted the bitter fruit of Power divorced from belief in god and respect for his Law. Take away belief in god and what is there to support the concept of objective Law or to ensure the inviolability of covenants freely accepted. The pontiff concluded his comment by stating that therefore he deemed it a most solemn duty of his office to hinder in season and out of sea son any loosening of the Bonds that unite human civilisation with the fundamental principles of christianity. Asked if the events of the last. Year had tended to dissipate uncertainty and anxiety Over the prospects of a just and lasting peace the holy father replied that he could not see any marked improvement Dur ing the last year. He stated further that he fears this unfortunate condition will continue so Long As the peace of Europe and the world is considered solely under the Light of what each state demands for its own individual Security and in the existing precarious circumstances one state is allowed to increase its Strate Gic positions and present its neighbor with accomplished facts. As yet positive and constructive ideas have not entered into the build ing of world peace he added and said he Hopes that the United nations organisation soon May be placed in an effective position to assume guarantees for the Security of All. What Are your aspirations for the continued advancement of the Church and for the greater Well being of Mankind the holy father was asked. Jondon May 16.-attempts to get the London co operative society to invest Money in the people s press printing society the organisation which published the communist daily worker Are to be opposed by Catholic Trade unionists in the London area. It was reported Here last week that a Resolution asking that this invest ment should be made was passed at the quarterly meeting of the . Or. Bernard Sullivan chairman of the Westminster archdiocesan association of Catholic Trade unionists declared in a statement condemning this move it i High time that the co opera Tive set its House in order. We Catholic Trade unionists want nothing from it hut if it commences giving funds to fhe communists even if it is done indirectly we want to know Why acid if this Money is going we will want to know Why it. Cannot be supplied to Catholic Church requires free Dom the holy see he replied is the Centre of the Universal Church. The end for which Christ established that Church is the ultimate goal of All that the Pope does Hopes and prays for. That end is in the spiritual order is supernatural. It is to bring the knowledge of Christ to All men and to communicate to their souls the Grace of salvation which Christ purchased for them on the Cross of Golgotha. To attain that end he emphasised the Church requires Freedom of action in every Region of the world and one must be constantly intent on de fending and protecting that Freedom. But at the present moment he continued his efforts Are directed chiefly toward vindicating the Freedom of the holy see of Bishops and of Catholic associations of Christian Charity and indeed of All catholics throughout the world to come to the assistance of those in need to provide them with food and clothing to arrange for the homeless wandering millions an orderly emigration to some coun try where with proper safeguards to their religious and social needs they May begin anew the life of an honorable Christian family that essentially vital cell of human society. Atomic weapons the american correspondents not ing that the world was gravely concerned Over the threat to civilisation contained in an uninhibited use of recently developed highly destructive weapons asked for the pontiff s comment on the ethical conditions involved in the use of such weapons. Pope Pius responding pointed out that the question touched Only one element of a general problem. The development of modern Wea Pons of War he said is bound to go Forward with the constant develop ment being made in the technical Field and just As surely is bound to Lead to total War that is a War in which the distinction Between combat ants and non combatants is quickly robbed of All meaning. What this promised to the civilised world he noted has been amply and sadly demonstrated in the recent War most certainly herein is. Found an added argument he continued if such were needed to persuade the leaders of nations that in conscience they Are obliged to reach agreements that will ensure to the world a peace for which they in Honor May assume responsibility and which All Peoples May find bearable even though those agreements mean the curtailing to some degree of their several Sovereign rights.
