The Ottawa JouRiua PuklUlM by ' ' . ' The Journal PuMttMm Ca of Ottawa 144. SJT Cjuaan (t iM rk St, Cmw. Onurw , : : : : , WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 12. 1964 The Commons and Cyprus . The House of Commons did fair justice to the Importance of the Cyprus-crisis In its emergency debate on Monday. v Four party leaders or their spokesmen urged that Canadian troops remain In Cyprus despite the difficulties of the task. The fifth, Mr. Gregoire, added the cry that if they can't be given the "required means" they should be withdrawn. Mr. Paul Martin must have breathed . easier. A country so prominent in the principle of providing , international forces for peace-keeping would look curious if H were to withdraw its own troops upon the advent of difficulties. Indeed, Mr. Martin had a further reason to breathe more easily. Hit opening statement was a laborious recital of how many people he had talked to in international circles during the last crucial days a fact we may. surely take for granted. But as the , debate proceeded his answers to questions were more factual and he showed a sure-footed skill in satisfying the House that Canada's role, military and diplomatic, is about as good as could be expected in so weird a situation two NATO allies fighting over a Commonwealth country under the vigil-of I The core of opposition questions and, criticisms was that UN forces might' have done better, might even have averted the latest crisis,-had they been given more precise' orders and more authority. " ," J s Mr.' Martin and Mr. Pearson met j these criticisms frankly. In effect they 'agreed with, the criticism, but they i variously and repeatedly pointed out' ; that UN cannot send a peace-watching l i force to Cyprus without that country s approval of the orders to be given the forces The international "idea" is not j yet so mature or sophisticated, nor its; ; policeman so strong or so wealthy. A i UN fore must do the best it can. i' But Mr. Pearson and Mr.- M a r 1 1 n ,' wisely fell short of making any derogatory remarks about UN's J inade-f quacy. That the Government has resisted hurting UN's position at this i time is to it credit. : VI UVVttvei B e Viviviiwwnvi . ejaaaw ,'Knowles i was Pope Paul's Encyclical x It will be all much (or too encyclical, and retreat from John be that a closer describes as men saying the same things and seeking the same ends in their different, ways. John was the great-hearted Pontiff who "put his arms around all mankind," with a touch of diplomacy as well, the pope who could greet a Jewish Rabbi with the words, "I am Joseph, your brother." Paul is the theologian, the subtle, complex intellect who weighs his every word and who (like Newman writing his Apologia) strives desperately ' not to be misunderstood. Thus white he does not reject the great goal of Christian unity, he spells out with clarity the obstacles to it, adding with realism and integrity that ' it is "not in our power to compromise with the integrity of our faith." That John would have gone farther than this, only the naive can believe. In. truth, the great ideal of Christian unity, for the time being at any. rate, has sensibly not envisaged the Idea that the various branches of the Christian church should abandon1 their respective Interpretations of basic common beliefs. Whatever the future may bring, realists must know that this is impracticable now. But what has come in our time, what John XXIII made a living present thing, and what Paul has done nothing , to diminish, is an end among Christians of the ancient bitter feuds which disfigured His Church. "Let us," says this encyclical "let us stress what we have in common rather than what divides us." Nor is there a word In this pronouncement (which is not a doctrinal pronouncement, but only a candid look at the Roman Catholic church's posi tion in. the modern world) to discour Viet Nam, Cyprus and UN " debt In days past they would have more understanding of aoday's anxious .world developments. ??'. : .
