Two years ago Mrs. Sanger intimated that birth control clinics were oper- ated in Holland wil.h the authoriza- (iol and approval of 'lho g(JverlllY:ellt An invest/ffation eonducte(l by the Rev.

In 1911 the charter which had been ohtained several years earlier by the Nieuw Malthusiasnsche Bond expired and it has not been renewed. In fact the organization realizing that it ob- tained its original charter because of lack of understanding of its real "meaning, has not e,en applied for a renewal of its corporation, Masonry as the result of a resolution proposed by Premier MUSsolini and passed by the Fascistt Grand Council, over which he presides. lts OWn Dmcipline "Considering that late political events and certain resolution passed by Italian Freemasonry give reason to believe that the Free Masons are following a program and are adopt- ing methods in antagonism to those which absorb the entire activity of Fascismo," says the resolution, "the Grand Fascisti Council invites all Fas= cisti who are also Freemasons to choose between belonging to the Fas- cista National Party otto Rreemason- ry, because the Fiscista can only ree- ognlze a discipline which is the Fas- cista discipline; can only recognize one hierarchy, whicli is the Fascista hierarchy; can only owe one obedi- ence. which is absolute, devoted and daily obedience to the heads of Fas- cismo." Must Give Up Affiliations , The decision of the Council is ex- pected to have profound effect upon I the national life of Italy and as a r sult of it many of the members of the Italian Chamber of Deputies are expected to be obliged to renounce I t:heir secret society affiliations or give ! up their seats. The action is considered as a direct blow against the political activities of the Freemasons, who for years have considered themselves as an of anization within organizations and '' i who lmve given strenuous support to previous Italian political parties and previous Italian cabinets, because of their Masonic affiliations. It is at the door of these parties and cabinet that the Fascisti lay the chief blame for the demoralized condition into which Italy had fallen three rears after the World War. Regarded Enemies Premier Mussolini made it plain that if the Masons did not submit to the national will they would be re- garded as enemies to the fatherlarid and as such should not be permitted to retain their membe'ship in the i party,
