Dr. Ha  opened the business of the day by sa..,,. that at the last meet- ing Cincinnati had been selected at the convention city. A call was sent out for the conention to be held on Aug- ust 22 and 23. After that had been decided upon, a letter from the Hier-' archy announcing that a general meeting of all Archbishops and Bish- ops of the United States was to be ]leld at the Catholic University, on September 24, was sent out, informing the subject of the Catholic press. At a mdeting of the Bishops, held at Notre Dame University in July, a number of Clergymen and laymen, in- terested in Catholic education, Catho- lic social welfare work, and the Cath- olic press, were assembled. Twelve of the most active members of the Cath- olic Press Association attended. A section on the press, a section on its- sins, and a section on Catholic social weffare work were the outcome of this meeting. A smwey of conditions was made at that conference, in order to assist the Administrative Committee of Bishops in making up their pro- gram. After the meeting ol" the Hierarchy in Washington, a letter was received from Right Rcv. Bishop Rus- sell. notifying the Catholic Press As- sociation that he had a plan which he wis'hed to lay before the Catholic Press Association for its considera- tion. IIe requested that a meeting be called, which was done. C.HAMP CLARK ON EI)UCATION AGAINST MAKIN@ CABINET MEMBER A SECRETARY ()F EDUCATION WI TH COSTLY BUREAU OF ASSISTANTS. No man is more intently listened to when he gets up to addres the House of Representatives at Washington than former Speaker Champ Clark He always has something interesting to say, and he says it in such a way that he leaves a lasting impression on the minds of his he'.u'crs. The other day he was addressing Congress on the vocational rehabilita- tion of diabled persons, and in his re- marks drifted on to the proposed Smith-Towner Educational Bill with its creation of a new member of the Executive Cabinet, bo be known as the Secretary of Education. In his drift Mr. Clark strikes upon the growth of costly bureaus with these words: How Departments Grow. "Why do parents not take care of that thing instead of coming to Con-. gross of the United States to have bowlegs and other afflictions like that cured ? We have got to cut down these apropriation bills. I was in favor of the Sohliers' Vocational Educational bill becati we will never be able to pay the debt that we owe the men who fought for the flag of the coun- try. But this is not a parallel case at all. O, they say, it will only cost a million; but that is a starter, that is the camel's nose under the tent, and you all know it--any of you that are fit to be here known it. I have seen several of these bureaus created since I have been here. "I have seen three departments cread, amt I will tell you how they worked. They will have a little tiny bureau with 5 or 10 of 15 people in it, and the first thing you know it ha. grown like Jonah's gourd vine, until they have hundreds of them, and it the Association that one of the most gets to be a great big thing. Then important points to be taken up was they clamor to be made a department, 2-7-4t. THE GUARDIAN, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 7, 1920. and there ise a bil learning up here sonic time that proposes to make Cabinet member of the Commissioner Jar Education, a Secretary of Educa- [<ion, and I am against it. The first thing you know they will have a.- many employes d'own there in that Bureau of Education as they have in the War Risk Bureau, with its 14,000 employes justling each other around in each other's way. "I am as much in favor of educa- tion as any man who ever lived. I p:owed corn amt muled rails and broke rock and cut calm aml wormed tobacco in order to get money enough to go to college. Shenld Le! Congress Ahme. "I began to teach school before I was 15. The only qualification I really had was my size (laughter), and down in Kentucky just after the close of the Civil war size went a good piece in the community. (Laughter and ap- plause.) I was president vf a college when I was 23 years old down in West Virginia, so I have a right to talk about educational matters. I saw to it that my children both secured good education. My son graduated at or from, or, to use Senator Henry Cabot Lodge's formula, 'was graduated from,' two or three universities and colleges. Now, if he has as much com- mon sense as he ought to have he wil succeed in the world. But when- ever that bill comes in here to make PI{li00SENT CRAZE S  rl FOR 1 IRIIUAIJSM FATHER CORRI(]AN, S. J., WARNS AGAINST IT,CALLS SIR OLIV- ER LODGE "SHY ON SCIENTI- FIC PROOF." A warnmg against "the present craze for spiritualism" because of "far-reaching nervous and mental dis- orders" which arc likely to result and also the "probability of trickery and fraud," was voiced by Rev. Jones I. J. Corrigan, S. J., of Boston CoEege be- for the Young Men's Catholic Associa- tion at the Boston College High School recently. Father Corrigan, who is professor of philosophy at Boston Col- lege, spoke on "Sir Oliver Lodge's Al- leged Proof of Survival." Sir Oliver Lodge, he said, was "sby on scientific proof." In Father Corri- gan's opinion, however, "what really matters is that thousands of bereav- ed parents and near 're'atives of the heroic dead over there are having false hope raised of communicating with their loved ones." "Psychical research is a very <lifter- eat thing from spiritism." said Father Corigan. "Spiritism maintains that the supernormaI facts made known in psychical research are due to disem- bodied spirits. The registered verdict useless department out of the Bureau of science is aaginst this interpreta- of Education, I am against it, and I tion of the facts. Most scientists hold will use every parliamentary means that all may be explained without go- at my command to beat it. "The United States Government cannot do everything; it is utterly im- possible. The best thing for Congress to do wouhl be to ])ass a resolution here directed to the States advising them to resume their Governmental functions and let us alone. Now, they all 'cuss' Congress. It is an open sea- son for Congressmen the year around for these newspapers and magazines. J They abuse us with unanimity. "Some college professor wrote a whole article in a magazine recently on this budget business, in which he assumed all the way through that if it were no for he departments up here that Congress would be so ex- travagant/ and reck:es. as t vat away the Goddess of Liberty on top of the Capitol. Just the opposite is the truth. If it were not for Congress those departments up here would gob- ble eveTthing betwixt the two oceans." NOTICE. ing outside the known reaches of a(l- normal psychology. Sir Oliver Lodge stands out precisely because he is at variance with scientific .apinion in the matter. "Apart from the falsity of the spir- itistic explanation of the observed psychic facts, priests warn even thoe not of the Catho:ic faith against the present craze for spiritism because from experience they are aware of the far-reaching nervous and mental disorders that result to the unfortu- nate victims. For Catholics the ban on sporistic practices is absolute. It takes a very robust-minded man to escape immune from tampering with matters psychic. "By all means let psychic research go on in tile scientific laboratory un- der the skilled direction ,of trained psychologists, but let there be an end of spreading these dangerous and un- proved spiritistic pmctice, among an uncritical public where, apart from the probability of trickery and fraud, the harmful results are certain, while Notice ,is hereby ven that the regular annual meeting of The Cath- olic Publication Society of the Diocese of Little Rock, will be held Monday evening, March 1, 1920, at 8 o'clock p. m., at The Guardian office, 309 W. Second street, Little Rock, Arkansas. This meeting is for the purpose of electing a Board of Directors and transacting such other business as may come before the meeting. Rev. Gee, H.

Today Catholic "Christian evidence" lectures are an everyday eevnt in pub- .............. lic halls and in streets through the country. Both clergy and laity (un- der ecclesiastical guidance) are going about making Catholic truth known through the, fog which the so-called "Reformation" cast about it. To Be Thrifty, Hecklers there are at the meetings,- but they arc a help, rather than hinderance to the cause, says The Tablet (Catholic). Eastman Kodaks Developing and Finishing.
