This opinion was expressed by the Rev. L. J. Twomey, S.J., in the fourth of a series of lectures on Communism sponsored by the Industrial Relations Institute. The subject of yesterday's lecture was dialectical materialism, the philosophy behind the communist movement. Father went on to explain that most Americans know communism is evil, but few know why it is evil. As a result, there is too much anti-communist activity aimed at the wrong target, which does more harm than good because it confuses people as to what the real target should be. He quoted the following passage from Pope Pius Xl's encyclical On Atheistic Communism, mentioning that it is the mos£ complete and concise 'definition of dialectical materialism he has found. "According to this doctrine there is in the world only one reality, matter, the blind forces of which evolve into plant, animal, and man. Even human society is nothing but a phenomenon and form of matter, evolving in the same way. By a law of inexorable necessity and through a prepetual conflict of forces, matter moves towards the final synthesis of a classless society." Father said that the gulf which we have allowed to grow between what we practice and what we preach is making it that much easier for communism to win the loyalty of the uncommitted sections of the world. We must come to grips with our own weaknesses, such as slums, racial inequality, sensuous living, isolationism and lack of unity; and until we do, the image that we present to the rest of the world will be greatly marred, he said. Loyola to film Spanish documents Permission to microfilm documents and records of Spanish colonial period in Louisiana has been granted to the university and International House of New Orleans by the government of Spain. This was revealed in a joint announcement by the Very Rev. W. Patrick Donnelly, S.J., president of the university, and Maurice F. Barr, president of International House. The documents cover several periods including 1763 to 1803 when Spain ruled New Orleans and Louisiana. They have resided for centuries in the archives and libraries of several Spanish cities. The microfilming, project will be under the direction of the Rev. Ernest J. Burris, S.J., a Jesuit priest of the New Orleans province.Two copies of the documents will be made, one set to be housed in the Loyola library and the other in the Thomas F. Cunningham library of International House. Both collections will be open to scholars, historians and other authorized persons. The agreement was signed in Madrid by Jose Antonio Garcia Noblejas, general director of archives and libraries of Spain; Father Burris, representing Loyola, and Mario Bermudez, representing International House. Father Donnelly and Mr. Barr hailed the microfilming project as "a milestone in the cultural and historical life of our city." They said the agreement culminates two years of negotiations between International House, Loyola and the Spanish authorities. Documents in the Spanish archives at Seville deal with Spanish affairs in the United States from 1492 to 1850 and include a series on Louisiana and Florida extending from 1570 to 1803. There are six to eight million pages of documents in the General Archives of the Indies which is considered the most important repository of documents dealing exclusively with Spanish America. Between 400,000 and 500,000 of the most important documents will be microfilmed in this project.The agreement also provide* for the preparation of a catalog of documents pertaining to New Orleans and its region in a joint project supported by the Spanish government and the two New Orleans institutions. Father Donnelly explained that plans are already underway to seek permission from the French government to photograph documents related to the French rule in Louisiana and to maintain these at Loyola university. It is hoped that grants will be secured to assist in the financing of the microfilming projects, Father Donnelly said. "The projects are costly but their importance is beyond measure," he said. HISTORY MAKING AGREEMENT—Examining a contract to allow International House of New Orleant and Loyola to photograph records and documents of Spanish colonial period in Louisiana are left, AURICE F. BARR, president of International House, and the VERY REV. W. PATRICK DONNELLY, S.J., president of Loyola.
