" Do you also attack totalitarianism in Russia'?" the Lisbon Catholic paper, Vos, pointedly asks the B.B.C. in a reply to the B,B.C.'s criticism of " corporative systems as a form of Fascism."
This B.B.C. broadcast was in Portuguese and addressed to Portugal.
The B.B.C. speaker was talking on the re-establishment of the French Republic.
"Corporative systems are a form of Fascism which must be destroyed throughout the world," the B.B.C. said.
" This," comments Voz, "spoken in Portuguese at the microphone of the B.B.C., manifestly constitutes an attack on Portugal and the Portuguese Corporative State. It is an inadmissible interference in Portuguese politics.
", We would like to ask the B.B.C. one thing. Does it make broadcasts in Russian attacking the authoritarianism and totalitarianism of the U.S.S.R.?"
On the other hand, the Catholic, newspaper Novidades has paid a tribute to the role played by the B.B:C. in this war.
" If the history of resistance in European countries is ever written one of the institutions that will be given a prominent place is undoubtedly the B.B.C.," it said. " During four endless years its voice has been able to encourage millions of souls who were about to despair."
National Churches and The Church Universal. By the Reverend F. Dvornik, D.D. (The Dacre Press. 2s.) Those who heard Professor Dvornik's three addresses to the Newman Association, or read them in the Eastern Churches Quarterly last year, will be glad to have them thus published separately ; those to whom the papers are unknown are strongly recommended to buy this important contribution to an important subject by a distinguished Czech scholar. Those who followed a discussion about the language of the liturgy in Tot, CAMOLIC HERALD some time ago will be specially interested by what Professor Dvorntk says about the origins of the use of Latin in the Western church.
