VATICAN CITY, May 18.-(P)-I
Pope Pius XI, in an encyclical issued
today, called the world to prayer,
penance and mortification to save
itself from "the perils of terror-
ism and anarchy" and "the still
graver evils that are threatening."
For this purpose he set aside a
period of eight days for "repara-
tion" on the octave of the feast of
the sacred heart, beginning June 3.
He adjured the faithful to ab-
stain during the eight days "at
least from entertainments a n d
amusements however lawful" and
urged that "those in easier circum-
stances" give to the poor "the pro:
coeds of this retrenchment."

"This is the most dreadful evil

they engage openly and in secret

Plans to Be Submitted
To Become Operative
in Fall If Passed
The proposed rushing plan for
next fall, which defers rushing
during Orientation week and
pledging during the first two
weeks of school, was unanimously
passed by the Interfraternity
Council last night for the second
time. It will now go before the
Judiciary committee for approval.
The platna, drawn up by a com-
mittee appointed by Howard T.
Worden, '32, retired president of
the Council, was passed at the last
meeting, held May 11, for the first
time. If approved by the Judiciary
committee, it will go to the Senate
committee on Student -affairs.
Every effort will be made to get
the plan through these groups be-
fore the summer recess, so that it
will become effective in the fall.
To Select Candidates.
A motion was passed to permit
Edwin J. Turner, '33, president of
the Council, to select five candi-
dates from the faculty and five
from the alumni whose names will
be submitted to Dean Bursley and
President Ruthven respectively to
act on the Judiciary committee.
President Ruthven will select one
-andidate from the alumni group
to act on this, committee and Dean
Joseph Iursley will select two from
he faculty group.
Tlie faculty members which will
be recommended by Turner are
.'ranklin Everett of the engineering
school, Dean Samuel T. Dan1 of
he Forestry school, Prof. C. F.
Kessler of the engineering school,
Philip Jay of the Dental school,
and Dr. Warren E. Forsythe, head
>f the Health Service.
Alumni men who will be recom-
mended are Herman C. Cleene,
Mllan Connable, William Brown,
Efackley Butler, and H. S. Slifer.
Pass New Proposal.
A proposal recommending that
ill solicitors and salesmen visiting
traternity houses carry courtesy
:ards given out by the Council
ifter a thorough investigation by
ts officers, was passed. This plan,
t is believed, will do away with
nen falsely representing companies
aid the cheating of fraternity men.
The plan will only be effective,
:aid Turner, if the fraternities co-
,perate and insist on all salesmen
presenting their cards.
A new system for tryouts will go
nto effect next year which will be
based on the merit system, resem-
gling that of the Union plan. De-
tails of the plan are not worked
eut as yt.

Ignorance of Religion
Ignorance of the meaning of re-

where, according to Rev. Allen J.
Babcock, pastor of St. Mary's Cath-

"Most non-church goers have lost
interest in religion," Father Bab-
cock said in an interview yesterday,
"because they don't know what it's
all about. They have not had suffi-

tirely lost, he said.
"I am not qualified to speak for
other religions," Father Babcock as-
serted, "for my experience has been
limited. The Catholic church does
not, probably, face such an acute
problem of non-attendance because
of, the background of religious
training offered its members. St.
Thomas has a Sunday attendance

cock. An atheist must be positive
in his beliefs, he pointed out, as
positive in his belief that there is
no God as the religious man is in
his belief in God. Consequently, he
concluded, there are few atheists.
"The great problem," Father Bab-
cock alleged, "is that of indiffer-
ence. In our local fraternities, it
is often a fact that the Catholic
