DR. FAIRFIELD MAKES THREE POINTS

(1) EUTHANASIA On Sunday, Dr. Laetitia Fairfield, who addressed the Stretford C.P.E.A., said that when they read with horror of the atrocities

perpetrated on old people in Germany prior to 1939 and during the war years, of how they had been killed in their thousands in the gas chambers and the horror camps, they should remember that it was only the logical results of what was being taught by the supporters of euthanasia in England before the war.

" And," she warned, " coitain people were beginning to talk about it again."

(2) OLD PEOPLE Dr. Fairfield said that plenty was said and written about Catholic home life, but invariably reference was only made to the mother, the father and the children. " Don't let us forget that the Catholic family contains old as well as young, and it must be in the home that the care of both must rest."

(3) THE STATE

Dr. Fairfield added that Catholics were handicapped to a great extent by a false view of the

State. It was perhaps not quite realised that the State was the servant and not the master. As the world got more and more complicated, more and more work would have to he undertaken by the State. It was up to us to use tee best means to get the right conditions whether they be secured through the State or not.
