FAQS TWO BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 1949 Reds Denounced Publicly by Pope Communism Attacked By Nam« for First Tim* by Church Head Bj Philip Cllrke CASTEL OANDOLO, Italy, Sept. 5. W)—The Pope publicly denounced Communism Vv name yesterday for the first time In his lO-y^ar reign »s h'iftd of the Roman Catholic Church. Previously His Holiness always has used such phrases as "materialism," "totalitarianism" and "enemies of the church" in referring to Communism. The Pope'r speech, delivered In Gcrma'n by radio to half B million German Catholics gathered for a church conference, was the first papal explanation of the Vatican decree excommunicating Communists. He emphasized that the decree hud nothing to do with any differences between rich and poor, but was promulgated to save both from "atheistic Communism." "It concerns the con.servation and purity of religion and the Christian faith, the liberty of their action and, with these, the well helne ar.rl dignity and the rights of liberty of workers." he said. New Attack Seen Observers viewed the Pope's frank attack a.1 the beginning of a ' new and more vigorous campaign against Communism. That he chose to address Germany, torn betMTen East and West, was considered highly significant. He fought to bolster religion among workers and organize them into an effective force against Bolshevism. The church has now entered the struggle on . n more decisive and common level than ever before, observers believe. Pope Pius also addressed the faithful In Switzerland und Italy. He told a conference of Swiss Catholics, gathered r-r their first meetinft In 15 years that "a most Insidious danger threatens to dry up the springs of faith in God and his commandments." This danger, he said In his radio address to the conference at Luzerne, 1t "materialism" which seeks to destroy the freedom to serve the true God. "Only In Qod Is man free," the Pop* said. —Courier News Photo CITY OFFICIALS MCKT 'MR.
