ter from being read In pulpits.
Priests have reported they were
warned in night police visits
against reading pastoral letters,
the only means for the hierarchy
to tell its side of the church-state
light since the Catholic press was
shut down by the government.
The pastoral letter supported
reports of the seizure of the arch
bishop's administrative offices at
Prague and his virtual captivity
in his palace.
Churchmen said the govern
ment also took over nearly all
administrative offices in the
archdiocese and the dioceses of
the country and Installed, instead,
officials of the Communist-sponsored
Catholic Action, an organi
zation which the archbishop has
denounced as a tool of the state.

Federal Aid To Schools
WASHINGTON, June 27 UP)
Former President Hoover esti
mates that $150,000.000 half the
amount voted by the Senate for
annual federal aid to schools
can be saved by helping only the
"real backward states."
(1) Don't help states that don't
need it: (2) Watch out for gov
ernment "dictatorship" over edu
cation; (3) Be wary of the "grave
dangers" in federal "grants-in-aid"
which cover projects like
hospitals, roads and social security-He
gave his views In a letter
made public yesterday by Rep.
McConncll (R.-Pa.), senior Re
publican on the House Education
