has a special meaning in
one's life If it doesn't have
a special meaning then 11
Isn't holy That's sorta draw-
ing a thin line but lines need
to be drawn somewhere on
nearly everything we do
If .something Is holy and
means something special to

done some thinking about it
How many of us give serious
thought to Christmas reli-
gion or life?

Christmas last year; It's
meaning that l.s." Unless
you're willing to think about
It again tills year then

Youth Festival Success
How successful was the Vienna Youth Festi-
val July 26-August 4? Communist claim unlimit-
ed success while the Independent Service for In-
formation on the Vienna Youth Festival.of Mass-
achusetts tries to prove' shameful failure.
The Independent Service has recently sent
out a paper "Festival Repercussions" in which
quotations are taken from communist publica-
tions and Western publications;
Some of these are the "L'Unita" daily organ
of the Italian Communist Party; "Der Tagesspie-
gel" an independent Berlin daily; "Pravda" lead-
ing Soviet paper; New York "Times"; "The
Washington Post"; "World Youth" magazine of
the Festival sponsor and Communist' front organ-
ization tho World Federation of Democratic
Youth; and "The Vienna Daily1 News."
"It was particularly the conclousl'y demonstrated In dif-
ference or the( . . . Viennese which has dealt a heavy blow
to the- plans of the Festival organisers. All programs had to
ba performed In front or shamefully- sparse "audiences . . .
Whenever thd 13000 Festival participants appear" In an offi-
cial capacity tfiey receive the cold shoulder from Uie Vien-
nese." (5 August Issue of "Der Tacjesiplcgel")

Christmas Is dead as far as
vou are concerned.
"Well I'll think about It la-
ter when I have time." Christ-
mas is dead for you also For
somehow as humans we never
get around to those things

These days .sociologists and
religious thinkers are classi-
fying communism as a reli-

social pattern to which n per-

Wide Wide WorM
THERE IS NO SANTA GLAUS
Fidel Castro has finally gone too far. This
time he has really done it. It wasn't so much w hen
he ordered the execution of InO Cubans. We could
all make jokes about that. But this is no laughing
I matter not at all. Simply because tho man spends
most of his day making speeches tryinu to keep
1 the people so stirred up they won't be able to see
! that he is doing nothing to get them more food
i and better living conditions is no reason to say he
I is power mad. After all we sav he could be worse.
But when Fidel Castro decided to tell the
j people of Cuba that there is no Santa Claus he
capped the climax. This is the straw that will
I break the Camel's back. For centuries children
have gone to bed dreaming about the visit of that
jolly old fellow and his bottomless bag of toys for
children of all ages and all colors. Yes even little
Cuban boys and girls hang up their stockings (if
they have any) and awake the next morning to
find it though not as full as their northern neigh-
bors still plenty full to keep them happy. Al-
though the toys of their wishes seldom are deliv-
ered"" still the wishing is good. But all this is to bo
no more. Fidel has stated that Santa Claus is an
invention of the Capitalist mone -grubbers of
Wall-Street and that all good Cubans will cele-
brate Christmas on December the 6th like the old
days. As someone else said let's put Mass back in
Many of you have expressed an interest in
the problem of Red China. It has been our feeling
that the average person isn't too well informed on
this newest power in the world. This feeling :s
shared by the editors of Atlantic Monthly Maga-
zine and they have devoted about half of this
month's issue to Red China. The article is chief-
ly interested in the last ten years' progress. It
covers art politics religion (or the lack of it)
and various other phases
read about in the daily news releases irom that
part of the world. Most of those who write are
those who know and the article is well' worth
whatever time you feel you can spend.
And finally Nikita Khrushchev used to say
our children would live under Communism. Now
he says our grandchildren will. So some progress
has been made. At least a whole generation has
been saved. Mike Pelfrey
