Fwo Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Says Christians Behind Iron Curtain Making Heroic Sacrifices for Faith WASHINGTON UP — The historic axiom that the Christian church thrives best under persecution is being proved anew in modern Europe, a- Lutheran leader said today. West of the Iron Curtain, said Dr. Carl E. Lund-Quist of Geneva, Switzerland, "the churches are free-an6T half empty." .To the 'east, where Communist satelli'e governments are actively harassing religion, "Christians are making heroic sacrifices to remain loyal to their faith." As executive secretary of the Lutheran World Federation, Lund- Quist has traveled thousands of miles in the past few years to visit Lutheran churches on both sides of the Iron Curtain in Europe, and in many countries of Asia and Africa. He is now in the United. States to prepare for the assembly of the Lutheran World Federation which will be held in Minneapolis, Minn., Aug. 15 - 25. Delegations from 27 countries, representing most of the world's 70 million Lutherans, ,will attend the Minneapolis meeting. Lund Quist said in an interview that European Christians are "intensely curious'.' about the apparent religious revival in America. It seems to contradict the lessons of history, as well as the current experience of European churches, for U.S. church membership to reach record-breaking peaks in a time of groat material prosperity. In the nations of Western Europe, he said, where living standards also are high and where churches enjoy the same freedom and priveleges as American churches, there 'is "nothing remotely comparable" to this country's upsurge of religious interest. Flora ' Elva Ulrey has entered the Rob- «rt Long hospital, Indianapolis. Mark Center has been appointed administrator of the Miss Alia Plank estate. Among requests in the will was that $100 be given to the Moss Cemetery Assn. for perpetual upkeep. Carroll County Democratic night has been set for May 28 at' the Delphi City Park, with a co-operative .supper. The event will honor Mr. and Mrs. Pete Jackson, recently ncwlyweds. Mrs. Jackson, the former Mrs. Joan Abbott, is Carroll county recorder. Issues regarding the 1058 campaign, the annual fish fry, and the "Young Democratic" club will be discussed at the meeting. Miss Bonnie Rinick and Bill Cassell, of Flora, were; married ern European Christians to ' their persecuted churches.. "The greatest story in Protestantism today is the courageous resistance which East Germany's 16 million Lutherans are putting up against a tremendous effort by the Communist government to get them to desert the church." Lund-Quist said Bast German children are under "terrible pressure" from the government to take the so-called "civil confirmation oath," swearing loyalty to Communist principles and to Soviet Russia, as a substitute for the traditional rite of church confirmation. A teen-ager who refuses to take the Communist oath is warned that he can go no further in schoil, that he will have no chance to "Attendance at most of thej t a d job| and tnat his Western European churches is| onts may be ousted from jheir very low. _ The mass atbtude to-! homes andjobSi ward religion seoms to be general-j Despite the government's' ly one of indifference. threats, only 4 per cent of the East But even America's concern withj German'children who reached con- religion pales by comparison with the "fervent attachment" of East- firmation age last year chose communism over the church. cottage on Lake Shafer, near Monticello.
