M.P.M. K. OF C. BONUS ,' TIlE MARK Offers Mos! Profitable Training For Service and Ex-Service Men. Cot- ton Experts l,alest Opporlunily. Volumes of talk on all sides con- ccrnin what is to be done i'or our hoys who did th'eir figbting parts so well, but there is nothing that wilt make our heroes more independent of spirit and of means than a paying life position. The Knights of Columbus are again at the front when it. comes to rettl as- sistance. "l]he latest free offering made to help our boys in their life struggle is shown in the K. of C. Night School, with its schedule of vocational training. Now comes the or'aniza- lion of a chtss for cotton classing. ('.hLs For Cotton Classing The course, in cotton classing, which will be give.n in lAttle Rock by the l(niffhts of Columbus free night school wlwn it opens about March 15. has proved to he the most popuhu" cmrse offe]'ed to service and ex-servlce nlen, according to Georu'c. Young, registrar who said today that in all other south- ern cities where this course is offered more have enrolled than could bc ac- commodated. Most Profitable Vocation I The course in cotton classing, Mr. I Young said. offers' the young man just out of service a fine opportunity for training in one of the angst profit- able vocations in this section of the country. This class will be taught by an experienced cotton man ant] will be free of charge. The school is non-sectarian and open to all service md ex-selMce men. Instruction in cotton classing will lie given by me,ms of an artificial lighting system wlfich will throw a ghu'e on the cotton similar to daylight. This daylight effect, heightened by the use of tables painted black for the samples. Advanced work in this course, howex, er, will be given in day- ticed the goodly number of signs dis- played in the windows announcing the )pening of the K. of C. Evening School. Those in charge of (be work have met witl ready co-operation on all aides, which will g'o a good way toward its beIzinning under favorable r;m(liti.on, for it is puhlicity that cnts. Now, what have you done to F- o , " help this great project ahmg, or can you do anything--are you expectx'.d to do anything? Yes, you can do a great deal, and it will no require either much time or effx3} on your part. There is probably no member of the Council who is not acquainted with a good number of ex-service men who, if this school was hi'ought to their attention, what was taught there, and thrZ it was ahsolutely free to them. w,ouht be glad to take adwm- tage of this. great oplortunity to ad- vance themselves. To do this intelli- gently and effectively, every member should have what might be termed a worldng knowledge of the edulational plan being carried on here, and Mr over tbe country, how it is financed. that it is strictly non=sectarian, and those entitled to free tuition are. only those who have been in servme. There is another feature of" this work that has a direct relation to ourselves, and that is, that any )nembm" can take a course at this school upon the pay- ment f a fee of $25, which, consider- ing the fees charged at business col- leges and even at correspondence schools, is very insignificant, making it well worth while for any one con-. templating a special course of study to take it up with Brother Nine.on. whn will have charge vf the school, and who will give you all: the neces- sary information as to the courses to be iriven, as wel! as: the probability or special courses in lines not already es- tablished. We know of quite a good number f Knights who intend taking advantage of lhis, and it will be of hig benefit to the school as well as to the student. Rather Late light to secure the full advantap'e of natural lig'ht. This lighting system is now used hy the Knights of Co- lumbus fee nilzqlt school in Memphis, where a class of 75 is receivin in- struction. It may be necessary to se- cure a separate building here to ob Lain room to teach ibis class. ])rauglmn's Business College Engaged For Most Classes The Knights of Columbus bare se- cured Dr'mghon's Business Collec'e for It was last Sunday that we learned of the recent illness of Brother Lock- hart, and today that we heard that Past Grand Knight T. J. McCarthy ia now out again after being laid up for a couple of weeks. We are very glad t .ee them up and about, hul regret that the infmTaation came so late. for it is the Council's wish that news of those who are sick be communicated as speedily as possible, so thai the brothers may call or at least inquire for them. It certainly savors very most of their classes. Its advantages, much o indifference n our part if a it was said. are easy accessibility, member has had no manifestation of interest from those whose duty it is to show it. We are glad to see Broth- er Bullock back again, and hope we will have che pleasure of 1is presence at ore- next meeting. Next Meeting modern c()nveniences for.teaching and desks large enough for adult students. Many advantages are offered ex- service men by the coarse in ele- mentary education also. it was said. This course will he for beginners who cannot read or write. It is considered Our next meeting, Tuesday 16, will of 'reat importance to give ex-smwice be one full of interest coming as it racy the basis of an education so they d(ms on the night fullowing the for- might fill positions that will bring' real opening of the K. o fC. evening them a ood income. Great Success In Memphis The free niglt school in Memt)his has proved to be a popular institution it was said. In Memphis 650 men are receiving instruction in the various courses and 200 mx on the waiting list. Likewise..i other large South- ern cities where schools are establish- ed there ]ms been a large enrolhnent. Enrollment llours Enrollment here is going' on from 9 a. m. to 9 p. m. at the K.

Lak'k of Sea Fish Serious Factor. Internal condition in Germany con- tinue to grow steadily worse. The prices of bread, potatoes, legumes, m:n'malade, buler and margarine have been raised; and the statisticans figure an increase, on these items alone of 114.40 per cent in the cost of living this year for each person. The price of beer, too, which is clasced among foods by the Germans, had been rais- ed. Supplies Growing Shorter Besides the higher prices, the ,sup- plie.s of food are growing visibly shorter. Recently the Berlin city gov- ernment, owing to the failure of pota- to supplies, introduced turnip cards again, and .from late accounts it wouhl appear as if the country might have a repetition of the famous "tin'nip school. We will have much to talk ahout and it will ha the best oppor- tunity to get in close touch with this the greatest and most far reachtng work yet nnderttflen by our Order. Now is the time to show your inter- est, the opportunity to do your part in a work that as time goes on will shine like a beacon light in the his- tory of Catholic America. ,Runday Evening Meeting Sometimes it happens at these meetings, as is said of some religious sect. the spirit does not move them, and again, discussion both earnest and eloquent is the feature of the evening. Of last Sunday's meeting the latter discription wouht suit it,to a T the topics ranging all the way from religious education, travel, down to profiteering and nnxt Sun(lay there is going tn be a discussion on just what ever you please to bring up so that is as fair an offer as could he made and shmfld interest you en- ough to make at least one visit.

Professor V Silbergliet, the statistician of the city Our regular meeting, of Ilerlin, has just given out some in- lin. His investigations covered the month from July ]5th to August 15th last year, and he compared the nonth of November with that period. Within that short time the cost of living al- most doubled. Since then the cost of living' is ahnost twice as great as last sunllner, Lack )f Sea Fish One of the most serious factors in the general food situation is the mark- cd lack of sea fish, due in part to the coat fmuine which has kept eighty fish sLeamers tide up in the Elbe and Weser. Then. too, some weeks ago the agricultural orgmfizations of the coun- try pointed out that the official har- re.st estimates of last year fell short by 2,500,000 tons of the country's re- qui<uncnts assumed by the National Grain Bureau; but it is now estimated that it will be. necessary Ix/ import a still I'u'gcr amount of grain than 2,- 500,000 tons. Mark Down to a Cent The prospects for getting food from ubroad, however, are very unfavorable owing to the gre'tt depreciation of German currency, the German' mark now being down to one cent. This de- preciation has had the effect of rais- ing all forien prices at least ten-foht above the prices valing before the War. Industrial Siluation Turning to the industrial situation, rcporls show that German in(tust].'y is working on 50 per cent of tim normal amount of coal, and if a six-hour (lay is introduced, and a formidable agi- tation is going on to bring it qbout, then that mnounr will he reduced by half. Railways, Fas, electricity and water works are only getting 25 per cent of their former requirements. In the wn'ious divisions of the textile in- 41ustry only 30 per cent of the factories are at work.--Catholic Worhl. Bitter experience may be' most wholesome.

BUT SHOWS HER OWN 1)()MINATION AND TYRANNY. If England claims the right to rule the Irish, and justifies the claim by saying that the Irish cannot le them- selves, she gives free scope to a the- ory of domination and tyranny against which the whole, civilized world has protested and ever will protest. Only by making such a claim has England ever been able to hold Irel'md. She hokts her not by the free consent or the govern('d, but by the use of nli- I tary lueasul'eS. She does not govern, ] she coerces. She belies in h'ehmd the I ehtims that she makes,for her inten- tions and purposes througtmut her .empire and her relations with other nations. Worki Distrusts Her Therefore, the worhl distrusts her. ,America distrusts her. "Why do the. l)ulk of Americans distrust England" asks the January "Month." And the "Month" answers because of Eng- .hmd's attitude on the question of h'e- .land. It recalls General Smut's words uttered in June, 1919. "the mesh pres- sing of all constitutional questions in the Eml)ire, is the h'ish question It has becmne a chronic wound, the sep- tic effects of which are spreadin! to our whole system; and through its ning to poison our mvst vital foreign ningto poison our most vital foreign relations." Supremacy of h'ish Problem The "Month" itself foreshadowed the (tefe.t in the, United States Senate of the Peace Treaty as early as June, 1919, aml called atixmlion to the su- preme urgency of the irish prohlem: "But," it continues. "statesmanship is bankrupt when I rel'md is concerned. ]lecP, nse statesmen havc not the cour- age either to deny, Irehmd's claim to be a distinct national entity or to "tdmit what logically follows from its accept- ance," Current events show clearly that English statesmen will have to admit the former 'rod accept t]ae latter.
