Friday Evening, October 9, 1942 THE GREEN BAY PRESS-GAZE. Community Theater Opens Sixth Season on Thursday moved with ease in putting across Barrie's subtle but sentimental humor. Completing the cast were Dorothy Ebert as Fanny, the maid; Mary Bess Doty, the family nurse; and Elaine Holterman as Richardson, the co*ckney servant of Stephen Rollo. The action of the play occurs in both the living room of the Grey home and Stephen Rollo's chambers in London, all within an afternoon and evening. The story centers around the two Grey children as they welcome their parents on their return from India following an absence of several years.

Righino Denounces False Press Speaking on "The American Press and the Truth about the Faith in Latin America," the Rev. A. J. Righino, O. professor of hispanics at St.

Norbert college, addressed 250 members of the Green Bay Diocesan Council of Women at the last Catholic, their 18th annual convention held here Wednesday and Thursday. Father Righino decried the many ridiculous statements that he said have been made about the church in Latin America. especially renounced John Gunther's book, "Inside Latin America," for the Bolivian government recently published a statement against his chapter on Bolivia. "The imminent Mr. Gunther arrived in Bolivia 9:30 a.

m. one morning and left at 6:40 p. said Father Righino, "and yet he considered himself so well-versed on that little visit that he wrote a whole chapter about the republic full, of course, of erroneous state- ments." Outlined Priests' Work The priest outlined the work the early Spanish Catholics in colonizing Latin America and cited many for their progress with the primitive Indians. They founded the University of Mexico and of Lima in the 1550's, while Harvard university, our first center of learning, was not founded until 1636. Father Righino went on to tell of the church's place in Mexico, where he has recently spent the summer.

He said that the assumption that the church was mixed up in politics was not true, but rebellion there started when the Mexican government refused to recognize the Catholic hierarchy. "Although the Catholics in Mexico have endured many hardships and persecutions in the last years they will continue somehow to practice their religion. Mexico is 90 per cent Catholic." He summarized, each with proof, the many false accusations made against Catholics in Mexico and in Latin America, and stated that since the church has endured so much all these years it would never die in the southern Republics. Report Meetings Held The second and last day of the convention opened yesterday with a mass for the deceased members followed by a morning session devoted to reports for the year from the officers and the various chairmen of the council clubs.
