No Sweeping Changes In effect the answer of the Free State Minister of Education was that for the present no sweeping changes would be made. Secondary schools consist maxnly of seminaries managed by priests ap- pointed by the Bishops, schools con- ducted by religious orders and nuns, and schools controlled by tim Christian Brothers. Priests, nuns and brothers constitute a large proportion of th teachers. Lay teachers are at the same time, employed in all the Secondary schools.

O'Connell, general secretary of the organization and a member of the Free State Dail, denies emphatically the statement that the teachers want to abolish the system of clerical management. From every point of view the existing arrange- ment had, he points out, worked well. Want Religion Taught in Schools . Equally with every other body in Ireland, the teachers were anxious that religion should be taught in the schools. He would never support any system in which the teaching of re- ligion under the supervision of eccle. siastical authorities was not a part of the day's work performed by the teachers. Catholic teachers in the Six Coun- ties who had refused to recognize the Belfast Government have now ac- knowledged that administration and will henceforward receive their sala- ries from the Ministry of Education in Belfast. GOD'S TREASURES I love the clouds which show the dawn is nigh, Pink roses blown across a bright'ning sky; And the light laughter in the morning air, The breath of angels seems to linger there. I love to see the golden maid of noon Her form is slender as the sickle moon; And the slow-bee, with many a dainty sup, Drain the warm honey from a but- tercup. 7 I love to see the flower of night un- fold- A purple pansy with a heart of gold; And the sweet stars which strew the happy sky, And whisper, each to each, of God on high. Dublin Irish Weekly ARE JUST "PA" AND "zik" .NOW When I was  small boy, 40 years ago, children almost without excep- tion addressed their parents as "pap" and "mamma." When a boy grew old- er and went to school he frequently took to saying "sir" to his father, though, behind his back, he usually referred to him as "pater" or the "governor." At the same time he gave up 'saying "mamma," which he considered child- ish, and took to calling his mother "mother," or sometimes "mater." It was about 20 years ago that the abbreviations "pc" and "ms" began to be generally used. They came from America, where they had already been in use for many years. Some children used "daddy" instead of "papa," and after a time "papa" went out altogether, and was replaced by "daddy" by very small children, and by "dad" with those of older growth. Today "dad" is almost universal. Even the little shaver of four or five calls his father "dad." As for "mam- ma" it is as obsolete as "papa," and mater-familias is now bhown univer- sally as "mum." The only part of the kingdom in which these abreviatiohs bare not found favor is Scotland, where the mere formal "father" and "mother" are still insisted upon.Answers. DID YOU EVER THINK That a kind word put out at interest brings back an enormous percentage of love and appreciation ? That though a loving thought may not seem to be appreciated, it has yet made you bette and braver because of it ? That the little acts of kindness and thoughtfulness day by day are really greater than one immense act of good- ness once a year? That to be always polite to the peo- ple at home is not only more lady-like but more refined than having "com- pany manners?" That to learn to talk pleasantly about nothing in particular is a great art, and prevents you saying things you may regmt?--The Indiana Cath- olic.
