Sia,-In his letter " Slovak University Students" Mr. Pridavok gives the impression that he is propagating his political views by attacking a Catholic organisation, the purpose of which is not political but religious, viz. to collect Catholic intellectuals in order to strengthen their faith and resist materialism of any sort. I expect that the representatives of the Academic League of SS. Cyril and Methodius will give you correct information about the
matter. However. as I helped to form and constitute this organisation I am perhaps competent enough to correct some of Mr. Pridavok's mistakes.
The purpose of this organisation is not to propagate the idea of "Czechoslovakism " but only to support the victory of Christ's kingdom in our country and in the world. Further it is not inimical towards Slovak Catholic students in exile and we cordially invite them to join us. as the League was founded for all Catholic students and intellectuals front Czechoslovakia, The League does not number among its members two or three Protestant Slovaks as the membership according to its Constitution is exclusively reserved for Catholics. As the other remarks of Mr. Pridavok are rather political they do not deserve a reply in this paper by us who are not politicians.
