Canon Cardijn Free Again

Belgian Jocists Resume Activity

After having for years been held by the Germans as a hostage, Canon Cardijn, founder and director of the Belgian Jocistes, is free again, states our London correspondent. National Belgian Radio, announcing the news, said that he had “escaped at the last minute,” and had now reassumed his office.

The Belgian Radio announced also that the J.O.C., which had been suppressed by the Germans, has reorganised, and is at work again. The formal resumption took place on Sunday, September 10. Already the J.O.C., together with its sister organisation, the K.A.J., has published a paper under the title, “Bevrijd,” which is selling more than one million copies.
