Hungarian talks begin ?

HUNGARIAN Communist Government sources last week reported that negotiations had begun in Budapest between representatives of the Government and the Church, for an agreement to end the present crisis in their relations. Mr. Joyzef Darvas, Communist Minister of Public Education and Religious Affairs, was said to be presiding. The Bishops, continuing the policy of Cardinal Mindszeray, have so far refused to cooperate with the regime and have refused to take the oath of allegiance demanded of them.

The Government has steadily stepped up its pressure on the Church and, in recent weeks, has, by mass arrests and transportations of monks and nuns, tried to isolate the Bishops.

It now claims that the request for talks came from the Bishops, but no confirmation of this has come from Church sources.
