THE GUARDIAN, MARCH 22, 1930 PAGE FIVE S PRIZE NOVEL AWARD WON BY WOMAN WRITER C. W. C. News Service) March 17.--S. A. Baldus, Editor of Extension Maga- "~i announced today that the two dollar prize for the best submitted in the Prize Novel held under the joint aus- sion Magazine and The Company, was awarded to Donovan of Iowa City, Is. rain Francis McCullagh, who was present at the trial. It resulted in many sentences of imprisonment and two of death, one of which was car- ricd out.

The material Was gathered during two years; writing took about eight of twenty Bishops and 1,414 priests. For this period we ha~e fully trust- worthy information that the num- bers were not less than 2,691 parish priests, 1,962 monks, 3,447 nuns, and other Church servants. "We continue to read in the Soviet press of priests who are killed in con- nection with the closing of the vil- lage church or the removal of the bells, which has been resisted by the local inhabitants. " 'Religious profession,' it is stated, 'is free' in Russia. But religious teaching is not. By the law of Jan- uary 23, 1918, Clause 9, the teaching of religious doctrine to persons un- der the age of 18 in schools is a pun- ishable offense, and since January, 1924, it has been forbidden to give it to more than two or three persons under the age of 18, while every at- tempt is being made in the schools to teach children to be atheists• What is a priest or a bishop if he is not allowed to teach religion? " 'The law of Apriq 8,' we are told, 'completely precludes the least pos- sibility of religious persecution.' It is impossible to understand what: can have 'made the Metropolitan refer to this law. On April 8 a number of laws and local ordinances were codi- fide into one, of which I .have the text before me. "It forbade all Church organiza- tion, co-operative, literary, medical, or mutual aid societies, children's playgrounds, and excursions and all missionary work, and 'the teaching- of any kind of religious beliefs what- soever in State, public or private schools.' It also deprived the Church of the right of any juridical exist- was rather surprised I Orthodox Heads Imprlso~ned. iprivate schools and public schools on I]the return journey.

"The Patriarch handed over his authority first to Cyril, then to Aga- fangel, then to Peter Kruitisky. Cyril and Agafangel were imprisoned or interned, and Agafangel died in exile• "Agafangel handed it to Peter Kru- titsky, who was anyhow till recently in a Communist prison. That is the only way in which the authority ar- rived in the hands of the Metropolitan Sergius, who is made responsible for this statement• "If he really did assert that there is not and has not been any religious persecution in Russia, he need simply be asked what was the fate of his own predecessors in office• It was at Governor Theodore Roosevelt's suggestion that Miss Con- lway went to Porto where local Rico, Girl Scout officials had been solicit- ing" help from the National Council• With the assistance of the Governor and Mrs. Roosevelt she made a com- plete survey of local activities, and at his suggestion helped the Porto Ricans to form an Insular Council consisting of representatives of the seven senatorial districts and others who bring the total membership to sixteen. .The first meeting of this :Council was held at the Governor's Palace, Foraleza, where future gath- 'erings will be held under the chair- manship of Mrs. Roosevelt. '"It would be difficult for me to describe either the beauty of Porto "There are innumerable other de-i tails which can be given of whole-, sales exiles of bishops, priests and believers, but in the circumstances they are hardly necessary." 'RESS EXAGGERATED AUX CAYES DISORDERS RUSSELL REPORT SAyS Washington, March 15--The report on the revolutionary disorders in Haiti late last year was included in the annual report of Brig. Gen. John H. Russell, American High Commis- sioner at Port Au Prince, it was an- nounced here by the State Depart- ment Tuesday• Unusual interest was attached to the report, which reached the State Department almost coincidentally with the recommendation of the For- bes Commission, appointed by Presi- dent Hoover, that the High Commis- sioner be removed and replaced with a regular diplomatic envoy. The importance ascribed to" the Aux Cayes outbreak, in which ten Haitian students were killed by American Marines, was exaggerated by the press of the United States, the report holds. "Liquor, hatred of the town (Aux Cayes), and the expecta- tion of loot," were responsible for the disorder, the General adds. and tie continues with the declaration that Rico or the open-hearted generosity of its people," Miss Conway conclud- ed. "Despite their heavy suffering~ in the hurricane they are most warm- i ly hospitable to visitors from the States. I have never found more fertile soil for our movement" CATHOLIC ENGINEERS PRAISED BY PERNOT By M. Massiani, (Paris Correspondent, N. C• W. C. News Service.) Paris, March 10.---M.
