Others shown are: Lawrence Keller Jr. (second from left), president, Alton Banking & Trust Co., and Thomas VV. Blitler, executive director, Alton District Manufacturers Association.

Priest Tells i Conditions in \ Latin America j Communism is making somej | progress in Latin America. Alton Te Deum was told by the Rev. Thomas S. Bowdern. S.J., at a Ladies' Night meeting of Alton Te Deum, but primitive conditions under which the people live is a bar to rapid spread of Red doc- I trincs. Father Bowdern. a professor of | education at Rockhurst College, ! Kansas City, spent some time | in Latin America. While the population is pre| domimmtly Catholic, a great shortage of priests slows pi ogress of the church, Father Bowdern saitl. The work of the church includes measures to raise the standard of living, by improvement in farming methods and in I lie nrganixation of farm cooperatives. "There is no middle class in Latin America," said Father Bowdern at the Wednesday night dinner in Mineral Springs Hotel, "the people either are wealthy or extremely poor. Eight-five per i cent of the natives are illiterate., In some districts, life is so primitive that the natives haven't i learned to use the wheel."
