News Service) Brooklyn, March 12.--William Mc- I donough, alias Lt. W. It. Glennon, and numerous other names, was arrested here in the rectory of St. Ambrose church while trying to "borrow" money from one of the parish priests with which, he said, he wanted to pay his way back to Fort 0lethorpe, Ga., to give himself up to the authorities there He represente'd that he had I killed a soldier there in anger and [ wanted to go back and surrender. Same Old Story He was arrested at the instance of the Rev. Christopher Molloy of St. Ambrose's church, who identifiedhim as the same man who had told a sim- ilar story a yar ago in Far Rock- away. It is understood that several clergymen in the vicinity of New York have paid McDonough's "fare to Fort Oglethorpe" in response to sim- ihr pleas. The police have been look- ing for him for more than a year and Department of Justice  Operatives also admit an interest in his where- abouts and activities. McDonough was locked up on a charge of grand larceny which, the officials say, will be changed to as- sault and robbery when the prisoner is arraigned. This latter charge will be based on the allegation that Mc- Donough after telling his story to the Rev. George A. Dawson of S.: Paul's church, and being refused the money he wanted, drew a revolver and robbed the priest. The police say Mc- Donuogh was arrested in Columbus, Ohio, February 15, 1915, and convict- ed of impersonating a United States officer. He was sentenced to the At- lanta federal prison for two years. In 1917 he was arrested on a charge of petty larceny in New York and re- ullied with the United States during the war. i ceived a suspended sentence. In 1919 he was again arrested, this time in The specific action for which he re- connection with a grand larceny com- eeived his latest,and highest decora- mittee in Wasco, Minn. tion was the taking and holding of] Hill 288 at Landres, October 14, 1918. CATHOLIC COLLEGES NOW OFFER COURSES BY CORRESPONDENCE PLAIN TALK TO "MODERN" WOMEN BY WICKERSHAM (By N. C. W. C. News Service) New York, March 12.--"Women who retain their maiden names after marriage are misguided," according to a letter sent by George W. Wicker- ham, former Attorney General of the United States, to the Lucy Stone League, an organization composed of women who keep their own names. The letter was sent as a contrihu- tion to a symposium conducted by the Secretary of the League. Woman's Glory "] can hardly express with suffi- cient emphasis my opinion concerning the movement on the part of some women to retaiv their maiden names after marriage," wrote Mr. Wicker- sham. "Fortunately, 1 was born ]n a generation whose women thought it glory to take their husband's names when they married. "They thought this for two rea- sons: First, they looked up to the hus- band, and their respect and admira- tion for him made them happy to be identified with him; secondly, they looked forward to having children as the greatest glory of life, and 1,hey desired to give their children the fa- ther's name and identify themselve. with that name. Misguided Women "The various disintegrating forces of modern times have had strange re- sults. One of the strangest, it seems to me, is the movement on the part of some women, whom I deem misguid- ed, to endeavor to ignore the facts of life and to promote the disintegration of the marriage state. That' some of them are honest in the opinion that this is going to be a benefit to their sex may be conceded, but I am firmly persuaded that nothing more mistak- en was ever advocated.

LEGISLATURE GRANT TO ERIEHOSPITAL "UPHELD BY COURT (By N. C. W. C. News Service) Erie, Pa., March 5.--The right of St. Vincent's Hospital of this city to receive an appropriation of $57,000 voted by the State Lcgislatlrc, has been uphehl by a decision of the Statd Supreme Count. The hospital's eligibility to receive this money had teen contested on the ground that it was a sectarian institution. An unpaid balancc on a previous appropriation brought the total amount involved in the suit to $65,000. An attack on the appropriation had been made by Wil- lis Collins in the l)auphin County Court. His petition was dismissed there and an appeal was taken to the State Supreme Court, resulting in a confirmation of the decision of the lower court. The case affects the in- terests of a number of similar hospi- tals Purely Non-Sectarian In its decision the Supreme Court declares: "There is no proof that the St. Vincent's ttospita] in Erie, is eith- er sectarian in character or affiliated with a sectarian institution or cor- poration. It appears the association is conducting its institution as a purely non-sectarian hospital, and its staff of doctors, and nurses, officers, trustees and other employes are identified with sects other than the Roman Catholic Church, and that the board of trustees has at all times exercised exclusive and complete supervision and control over all its affairs." B.ishop Gannon of Erie was keenly, interested in the progress of the case and expressed his pleasure when he learned of the decision of the State Supreme Court. ATHEIST TEACHERS WOULD BE.

News Service) Cologne, March 12.--General dis- pensation from the usual Lenten ob- ligations of fasting and abstinence throughout the Archdiocese of Co-[ logne has been granted by Cardinal I Schulte in a pastoral letter. Good Fri- I day alone is excepted. The action of 1 the Cardinal was taken in view of the general conditions of want and desti- tution. His letter reads in part: "For the duration of the present conditions of need and misfortune, general dispensation from the obser- wtion of fasting and abstinence is herewith granted. From that dispen- sation Good Friday is excepted. When conditions improve, a new episcopal regulation will revive the obligation of fasting." The dispensation is in harmony with the measures that are being tak- en throughout Germany to minimize the effects of starvation and to try, if possible, to check recent alarming increases in the death rate. Since the outbreak of the World War, abnormal conditions in Germany trove caused many of the bishops to take action similar to that of Cardinal Schulte. It has been found impractical to insist upon strict observance of the usual Lenten regulations, even with the modifications contained in the new Code, under war time and post-war conditions.
