DAVE THOMAS' recent attack on the Ca-
tholic Church can only increase the
evils he is trying to fight. His editorial will
stiffen the resistance of Catholics and cre-
ate or increase religious bigotry among non-
Thomas has made an error that no Cath-
olic can forgive and few non-Catholics will
note as they follow his argument against
The Catholic Church has never sought
restrictions on bathing suit apparel, Hol-
lywood movies or even non-Catholic birth
control. However, Catholic officials and
laymen have done all of these things, and
more, to spread the influence of the
Church and promulgate their own ideas
of right and wrong. But Church officials
and proselytizing, dictatorial laymen are
not the Catholic Church.
Thomas must know this for he sees mov-
ies made in "Catholic" Italy banned by the
American Legion of Decency. He sees the
predominately Catholic French produce
bathing suits that Catholic officials of Spain
feel are immoral.
*" * *I
THOMAS USES the fact that Church offi-
cials in Spain have influenced local au-
thorities to regulate sunbathing as an in-
stance "of the arrogance which the Catholic
Church displays in every country where they
get away with it towards citizens who are
not Catholics ..."
As a newspaper man, Thomas must rea-
lize that most people in a position of author-
ity are liable to use that authority in "un-
democratic" ways. A policeman's arrogance
in cowing an unoffending drunk does not
constitute an argument against a police
The arrogant policeman and the Span-
ish clergyman are, in my mind, both
wrong, but there is a big jump from the
Individuals to the organizations to which
they belong-a jump Thomas ignores.
A policeman gets his authority by law.
The Spanish clergyman gets his simply from
the power he has to influence his church
members. Because of his exalted position in
the religious lives of the laymen that sur-
round him, this influence is often consider-
able and sometimes extends into fields where
few clergymen have any real capacity.
The Legion of Decency, run largely by
Catholic leaders, exercises a stupid, but ef-
fective censorship over American movies, a
censorship that is harmful to the American
rovie-goer-Catholic and non-Catholic-
both psychologically and morally. Many Ca-
tholic laymen resent the Legion of Decency
and vehemently protest its influence, as
articles in such liberal Catholic magazines
as the Commonweal frequently attest.

NIGHT EDITOR: JOHN BRILEY
Brewster & Ike
WASHINGTON-The indispensable man
is with us again.
According to Sen. Owen Brewster of
Maine, a Taft lieutenant, he is Gen. Eisen-
hower. The catch is, however, that in the
Brewster view, Ike is "indispensable in Eur-
ope at this time."
Senator Brewster made this inspired grab
for the political-speculation headlines im-
mediately upon his return from a look-see
at the North Atlantic Alliance with fellow
members of the Senate Foreign Relations
Committee. None of them apparently had
the nerve to approach the General directly
on the personal questions that are in the
forefront of every politico's mind.
Thus the field was clear for Sen. Brews-
ter to rush in wher the bandwagon sear-
chers feared to tread.
"Gen. Eisenhower is indispensable in Eur-
ope at this time," proclaimed the man from
Maine. "We have a long, hard road ahead
there. France has no government. Italy has
no government. An election is coming up
A SENATE CORRESPONDENT familiar,
with Sen. Brewster's key role in the Taft
campaign for the Presidency sug.ested at
this point that an election was also coming
up in the United States next year. Ignoring
the crude interruption, the Senator swept
"In addition to these problems, Gen.
Eisenhower, against the advice of many
of his staff, has also come out for a Eur-
opean army as distinct from the national
armies first planned. This is basically a
French move arising from French fears of
German rearmament. It will inevitably
mean further delays for the Eisenhower
"It is plain that Gen. Eisenhower is deep-
ly committed to his job. He talks of it with
great emotional fervor and crusading zeal;
the practical details are explained by Gen.
Gruenther (Ike's chief of staff) ."
Democrats were considerably entertained
by Sen. Brewster's admiration for Gen. Eis-
enhower as an inspired European leader.
One reported that the Senator had displayed
an unselfish willingness to cooperate with
such Truman Democrats as also preferred to
F THOMAS sincerely wanted to attack the
censorship some Catholics exert on mov-
ies, magazines, newspapers and books, he
would have accomplished more by attacking
precisely that, rather than putting his ar-
gument on an emotional level, for both
sides, by striking out at the Catholic Church.
Some "good" Catholics could supply him
with a profusion of such arguements.
While tacitly approving the reported
Papal favoring of socialized medicine,
Thomas deprecates the attached warn-
ing that the Pope was against "any at-
tempt . . . being made to violate the right
of a human person" in the question of
therapeutic abortion and birth control.
The person the Pope's warning refers to
is the unborn child, whose soul the Church
considers more important than the life of
the mother producing the chuld.
While this may sound "anti-humanistic"
and just plain unenlightened in light of
world conditions to most non-Catholics, it
is a patent, dogmatic truth to believing Ca-
tholics. Presumably Thomas grants people
the right to believe what they believe.
* * *
THE CULMINATING argument of the
Thomas editorial is the statement that
the "tyranny of the heirarchy" and the
Church's protection of its sources of ma-
terial wealth are contributing factors to
the rise of communism in Europe.
The only tyranny the heirarchy of the
Catholic Church perpetrates is a tyranny
over religious dogma and practice. To
remove it would remove Catholicism, an
appeal Thomas is not making. The
Church's protection of its sources of ma-
terial wealth (where it is found to be the
church and not part of the clergy acting
quite independently in lay matters) is
probably no more responsible for the
spread of communism than is General
Motors' protection of its sources of wealth
Thomas is properly concerned about the
concerted influence certain Catholics are ex-
erting on our movies, reading matter and,
most importantly, our educational system.
Just informing most Americans of the facts
is a most important and needed office. It
should be performed, though, with a great
deal of intelligence and real insight, or in-
cidents like those of last week at Cicero,
Illinois, will be sparked in half the cities of
CATHOLICS MUST be assured that we
who do not believe are not attacking
their belief or their right to believe. Non-
Catholics and Catholics alike must know
that these practices are not basic Church
dogma and are in no way a part of the Ca-
Some Catholics, sometimes honestly con-
cerned with the world's growing materialism
and sometimes just filled with the poison of
minority psychology, are creating a real
threat to American ideas of democracy. In
the long run the threat is perhaps more ser-
ious than the McCarthy-hysteria threat to
human rights in the United States.
The way to end the threat is not to ere-
ate a worse one by lining up the 120-
million non-Catholics in the country
against the 30 million or so Catholics in
a misdirected religious argument.
The threat can be ended constructively by
recognizing and stating that it is not a re-
ligious argument-and it is not.
People as concerned as Thomas about the
situation should actively employ the argu-
ments of Catholics against these policies,
clearly stating their source. Catholics will
rightfully defend any promiscuous attacks
on their faith.
But like any other conglomerate group of
human beings, they can change their minds
about a mistaken policy if they are shown
to be wrong. However, as with any minority
group that struggles for its identity in an
overwhelming majority, they will fanatically
resist any change they feel directed-either
deliberately or mistakenly -- against their

ANNA AND THE KING OF SIAM, with
Irene Dunne and Rex Harrison.
N the wake of the acclaim for Rodgers and
Hammerstein's "The King and I," it is
interesting once more to look at the original
dramatization of Margaret Landon's biogra-
phy of the English school teacher who
trekked off to Siam back in the 1860's.
Furthermore, the original "Anna" has
the double merit of the ambitious Darryl
Zanuck as its producer and Rex Harrison
in a role that is, for a change, large enough
for his talents. He gives what is surely his
best Hollywood performance as the re-
doubtable king, a part that calls for the
full gamut of his comedy techniques as
well as an unusual understanding of the
more complex side of the monarch.
Where Harrison has soared, however, Mr.
Zanuck has occasionally faltered. He gives
his script a suitably lavish production, and
abundant wit and movement in individual
scenes. However, there are too many of
these scenes which accomplish much the
same thing, making the picture a good thirty
minutes longer than it need to have been.
MATTER OF FACT
By JOSEPH ALSOP
WASHINGTON-Every so often a reporter
has a personal experience interesting
enough to call for breaking the good rule of
impersonality,, and telling what happened to
him. One such has just come to this re-
porter, in the form of an appearance before
the State Department Loyalty Board in the
case of John Paton Davies jr.
To be sure, there was nothing very stir-
ring about the hour or so at the hearing.
The three man board, headed by a shrewd,
dry-spoken New Englander, Conrad E. Snow,
clothes itself in no special majesty. The
setting is an ordinary State Department of-
fice borrowed for the occasion. After the
oath, the routine of question and answer
goes forward in an informal but businesslike
way. The board seems both sensible and
patient. When it is over, your first reaction
is, "Well, I thought there would be more to
it than that."
On reflection, however, it seems to me
that there IS more to it than that, which
is the reason why the first person singu-
lar is being used in this sphere for the
first time in six years. Here was Davies,
after all, formerly a senior member of the
State Department Planning Staff, now
publicly charged with doubtful loyalty,
and publicly suspended from duty on the
eve of a most important assignment as
political adviser in Germany.
Here was his name blackened, his career
perhaps permanently damaged, his fortune
already hard-hit by all the horrible compli-
cations of a sudden change of family plan
after the sale of the family house. And all
for what? To make a burnt offering with
a sweet savor in the peculiar nostrils of Sen.
McCarthy and Sen. McCarran.
Certainly, if anyone can testify compe-
tently as to the sense or nonsense of this
proceeding against Davies, it is this reporter;
for in the wartime years in Chungking we
were, so to speak, competing backroom boys.
DAVIES was the political adviser of Gen.
Joseph W. Stilwell; I was the adviser of
Dr. T. V. Soong and Maj. Gen. C. L. Chen-
nault. I fought for airpower and a policy
of strengthening the Chinese national gov-
ernment; and he defended Gen. Stilwell's
views and advocated American military aid
to the Chinese Communists. Davies was
finally defeated when Gen. Stilwell was dis-
missed. But it was a bitter battle while it
lasted, and on the principle that no one
knows you as your enemy knows you, I
think I know John Davies pretty well.
As to loyalty, no doubts ever occurred to
me, even in the most squalid moments of the
long, squalid struggle in Chungking. In-
deed, the thought that I could not escape as
I sat before the Loyalty Board, was the
thought that Davies' judgment of the Chin-
ese scene had stood the test of time rather
better than my own.
The difference between the two views
was simple enough. By the end of 1943
and the beginning of 1944, it was already
clear that the regime of Generalissimo
Chiang Kai-shek would succumb to the
Chinese Communists after the war, unless
something pretty drastic was done. My
view was that a Communist triumph could
be prevented by replacing Gen. Stilwell
with a wiser man, increasing the scale of
American aid, and intervening very active-
ly to reform the rotting Nationalist gov-
Given the satisfaction of all these diffi-
cult conditions, particularly the indispens-
able third, I still think I might have been
Davies held the view, on the other hand,
and with many excellent reasons, that the
Generalissimo's government was already
past saving. If this was the case, the ques-
tion was not how to prevent a Chinese Com-
munist victory, but how to come to terms
with it. Davies also knew certain thinks
that very few people in America seem to
know even today-that Mao Tse-tung and
his Communists had developed their party
and their policy in isolation from and some-
times in defiance of the Kremlin,. for ex-
ample; and that throughout the course of
the China war, the only recipient of Soviet
aid had been the Generalissimo.
WITH this special knowledge, Davies made
what must now be accounted an ex-
tremely brilliant deduction-that Tito-ism
was possible, before Tito-ism had been
heard of. Believing Chiang Kai-shek was
past saving, believing also in the possibility
of Chinese Tito-ism, Davies therefore recom-
mended moderate American aid for the
Chinese Communists. His avowed aim was
to promote their Chinese Communist confi-
dence in America, and thus to achieve a di-
vision between them and the Kremlin. And
if Davies' recommendations had been fol-
lowed, I now believe he would have been
In short, there were two perfectly logical
and defensible American policies in China,
and you could take your choice between
them. What actually happened-what I for
one had certainly never foreseen-was that
after the dismissal of Gen. Stilwell, we ceased
to have any China policy at all. Even when
Gen. Albert C. Wedemeyer was performing so
admirably as military commander, his hands
were politically tied; after that, there was

To the Editor:
IN MICHAEL THORTON'S letter
of June 25, he writes of the
"professional manner" in which
Dave Thomas "wields the bludge-
ons of bigotry." In reality, nothing
could be further from the truth.
Dave Thomas did not attack Ca-
tholics, as persons, in America or
anywhere else, nor did he attack
the Catholic religion. He merely
expressed his feelings about eco-
nomic and social actions on the
part of the. Catholic hierarchy.
And he had no reason to feel any-
thing but perfectly free in doing
When the Catholic Church, or
any other institution for that mat-
ter, casts itself into the political
arena, it at the same time lays it-
self open to criticism. I personally
feel that when a nominally reli-
gious organization lays down the
law on temporal subjects as often
and as dogmatically as the Catho-
lic Church has, it is over-stepping
its bounds. But at any rate, it can-
not assume that its religious na-
ture automatically prohibits a rea-
soned and tempered discussion of
its worldly policies,
Thorton's characterization of
Dave Thomas for his views, be
they right or wrong, shows that
it is he-not Dave-who has re-
sorted to bigotry and intolerance.

'Burger Record . . .
To the Editor:
IT WAS WITH much interest
that I noticed a recent article
in The Daily telling of a Univer-
sity student who broke the world's
record for eating hamburgers.
While this particular student's
adroitness in consuming hambur-
gers is especially outstanding and
will probably never be surpassed,
it merely represents a phase in
the rapidly changing mode of eat-
ing at this nation's universities.
For the past fifteen or twenty
years, the feminine craze for slim-
ness has been manifested all over
the United States by calorie-con-
scious coeds carefully ascertaining
the affect of each bit of food on
their figures. Some have gone on
selfdepriving diets. Others have
resorted to patent medicines. A
few radicals have even decided to
see their doctors.
All this was done under the as-
sumption that most men prefer
thin women to stout ones. This, of
course, is still a matter for con-
jecture, but most women seem to
be convinced of its validity.
On the other hand, the physical
stature of the male 'species has
not become nearly so important.
Yet it would be folly to assume
that women are not at all inter-
ested in the height, weight, and
over-all stature of their menfolk.
Some men have become convinced
that the opposite sex prefers the
stouter to the thinner varieties of
masculinity. This belief was, with-
out doubt, started by the immense
popularity of television wrestlers
most of whom weigh over 250
pounds and all of whom get count-
less fan letters from every section
of the United States. Of course,
this fact must be balanced against
the millions of fan letters received
by notably thin radio crooners in
movieland. It is therefore far from
Yet we can not dismiss hambur-
ger eating orgies as merely being
caused by the same impulse that
causes people to eat goldfish, as
was stated in your recent article.
It is far deeper than this.
Perhaps, some day, after more
of these events have been com-
pleted and there is sufficient data
available for scientific research,
we will eventually ascertain whe-
ther women prefer their men thin
In the meantime, we should all
be grateful for such pioneering ex-
periments as a step further in sci-
entific research. They are as wel-
come as a whiskey sour at the Mi-
