PAGE EIGHT r  " LISTENING IN " I * By Autoiycus * "Covetous" Anglicism The proposed abbreviation by the Anglican Church of the Ten Com- mandments will net, of course, make any difference to the Ten Command- ments. If the editor of the "Tonner- ville Trumpet" published a revised edition of "The Merchant of Venice," it would be absurd to argue that the ]mtilated product had any claim to the original title. A "short form" o" Commandments, such as is found the in catechisms is one thing, and a pro- posal to "revise' 'the Commandments !,_  is another. The Decalogue as edited by the Anglican Church, if accepted as prolosed, will soon require further revision.,For the Tenth Command- I ment is now made to read "Thou shalt not covet." This does not express the old idea; it expresses a much wider ! idea. It is permissible to covet lawful things. In fact elsewhere in the Bible, as translated, we are exhorted to "covet" the best gifts; and'thus we . should have in the Bible a literal con- I  tradiction of the Commandments. Published Pubs The subject of the origins of old English inn-signs is revived by the appearance of a new book entitled "Pubs," which lists hundreds of i 7 quaint names. There have been many discussions ,about the derivations of names, such as "The Goat and Corn- }. passes," and it is probable thai some people have sought to fasten elabor- ' ate. explanations on matters which are susceptible of simpler solutions. In } this particular case it has been often claimed that "Goat and Compasses :: was originally "God' Encompasses Us." "St. Peter's Finger" is the curi- f [' ous name of another inn, and I recall having seen a saloon named "St. John of Jerusalem." Connecting IAnk On the first Good Friday the re- sponsibility fell upon the Chmcch of taking up the work which Christ had begun, of continuing the missmn which He came to earth to commence. Christ's mission was to the whole worht, and the responsibility of spreading His teaching to the ends ef the earth, is upon every Christian. If each of us has a responsibility to our remote brethren, the responsibili- ty towards our near neighbors is pro- . portionately greater. The establish- ment of an organization such as The Catholic Church Extension Society, .; simplifies the matter for everybody. By acting as a link between the pov- erty of the missions and the wealth of the cities it is able to do much good that would be left undone if left to individual effort. Fact is Evident Madam Maria Jeritza, who, as the papers say, has had musical America at her feet since her arrival from Austria for an operatic tour, receives something like $4,000 for each per- formance. She could stay here con- tinuously and make quite a lot of money. She is going back to Europe in the ummer; to Austria above all place(:nd she isdoing this because she l'dundcrtlen to sing in fifteen concert;s at a :fee of one dollar for each performance. A dollar in Aus- tria runs into thousands ,of kronen, and when the contract was made it may have represented real money. But presumably Madam Jeritza is not interested in the amount of the con tract, but merely in the fact that it i'J a contract, Madam Jeritza does not HUSBAND'S FIRST DUTY TO HIS WIFE IS TO LOVE HER Baltimore, March 27.--A husband's first duty to his wife is to love her, declared the Rev. Merritt Earl, pas- tor of tlomestead Methodist Episco- pal CAmrch, in the fourth sermon of his series on home-life. Love, he told the men of his congregation, is the fotfndation of all matrimonial bliss. "Your wife lives for it," he said; "don't let the love-look die from your eyes or the love-tone from your voice." Not Kitchen Mechanics The next thing due the wife is courteous treatment, the Rev. Mr. Earl reminded the husbands, who, he said, should practice the same chiv- alry they did in "courtin' days." "The trouble with most men to- day," he added, "is that they treat their spouses too much as mere kitch- en mechanics." Championing the cause of the wom- an in the home, the Rev. Mr. Earl recommended that husbands follow these rules to insure domestic happi- ness: Let Her Talk Avoid quarrels. Don't argue with the wife. It is a woman's right to an's intuition is often better than man's logic. Be Generous Don't stint your wife's allowance. Provide her with the utmost within your means. In this day of modern household appliances every husband should help lighten the wife's-lmrden at home. Stay at Home Stay home occasionally at night. You spent five evenings a week with her before marrmge, remember. Management and Discipline Share the management of home. Providing food and shelter for your family does \\;ot end your obligation. Share discipline of children. Don't treat your marriage vows lightly. Fulfill your share of the mar- riage contract, Keep Off Religion Nurture your wife's religious tend- encies, but do not interfere with them. Be sympathetic. Concerning this last rule the Rev. Mr. Earl added: One Whole Year at Home "! would recommend that every husband in the United States spend one whole week once a year in the home, remaining in the house as much as .his wife is forced to stay. Let him get a case of nerves, too. It would be a fine lesson. "Lots of us don't appreciate the wife we have. What would we do if THE GUARDIAN, SATURDAY, MARCH 31, 1923 GIRL STUDENTS SIGN A PLEDGE TO BAN "BOHEMIA" Baltimore, March 27..--A "reform" movement is ushering in spring at the Girls' Latin School. Determined to create what they consider high ideals for a school girl, students at this institution are putting a ban on smoking, use of too nmch cosmetics, reading of questionable literature and other "weaknesses" attributed to the modern school girl. All this they've summed up inca "reform" pledge which they've tacked up on the school bulletin board with instructions tlaat everyone sign. Here is how the move began: One of the girls saw a report telling of girls at the high school in Dallas Texas, experiencing a reformation. The details of this "purifying" nmvement proved so attractive to the Girls' Latin School matricular that they immediately secured permission to institute a similar uplift attempt. Tlmt was just a week ago. Today over half the schoolgirls have joined the crusade for "better ideals." Girls Have Taken Pledge. The pledge they have taken reads as follows: l'l?o think clean thoughts, to read good books and to destroy any un- talk all she wants. Instead of talking clean literature that may fall into my back the husband should put on his hands. hat and take a walk around the block. 2--To speak as pure English as I Be a Diplmnat know how and to refrain from the l)on't be a complainer.

BELLEVILLE SCHOOL DIRECTORS TAKE BIGOTED ACTION (By N. C. W. C. News Service) Belleville, N. J., March 26.Fol- means anaong other things, to be hon- est in my classroom work as well ns in examinations. 6---To so conduct myself as to be always worthy of trig friendships and to make myself a support and honor to my school, my home and to my glorious nation. 7To daily seek divine help in the keeping of this pledge. "There ought to be more," said one student. And that is how it hap- pened that an additional p/edge against smoking was tacked up be- [side the other resolutions. The pledge composed by the Stu- dent Council has this introdUction: I "We, the Studen Council of the I Girls' Latin School, realizing the ne- cessity for forming a pledge against smoking, hereby submit the following for signature by the students. The smoking ban bulletin is rapidly being filled with signatures. But the "slang" prohibition on the other proclanmtion is reported as the "catch" which is keeping many a girl from signing the pledge. "I ' just can t get over talking slang," they say; "I just can't. So what's the use?"

PARKIN Printing & Stationery Co. Little Rock, Ark. BISHOP BURKE SENIOR OF BISHOPS DIES AT ST. JOSEPH St. Joseph's, Mo., March 19.--The death of the Right Rev. Maurice Burke, for close to thirty years Bish- op of St. Joseph, removed from the American hierarchy one of its most picturesque figures and the senior bishop of the United States in the point of service. The late prelate, funeral services for whom will be held on Thursday, was made Bishop of St. Joseph in 1893, being transferred from Chey- enne, for which diocese he was conse- crated in 1887. Two years ago, as a result of continued ill health, he an- nounced his retirement, and the Right Rev. Francis Gilfillan was consecrat- ed bis coadjutor, with the right of succession. Bishop Burke was born in Knock- ainy, Diocese of Cashel, Ireland, in 1845, and was brought to America as a child, his parents locating near Chi- cago. At the age of eighteen he en- tered the University of Notre Dame and three years later was sent to Rome, where he took up his studies at the American College. He was a Ro- man student during the stirring events that transpired in that city at the time of the loss of the temporal power of the Popes, and until his death retained vivid memories of the scenes in the Eternal City at the time of the convocation of the Vatican council. He was ordained by Cardinal Patrizia on May 22, 1875. Bishop Burke was transferred from Cheyenne to St. Joseph, in which dio- cese he has labored with apostolic zeal for more than a quarter of a cen- tury. Bishop Burke was regarded as one of the most distinguished scholars of Dante in the United States, and was honorary president of the American Dante Society. In the summer ot 1916 he presented to the library of the Catholic University in Washing- ton a collection ol two hundred and forty volumes on Dante, said to be one of the finest Dante collections in this country. SAYS SCHOOLS MUST JUSTIFY RISING COSTS Providence, R. I., March 10.--"We have got to face the fact that educa- [ tion is goin to be more expensive in[ the future than it is today, and tlmt it has got to justify this increase by larger and more enduring resultv," President W. H. P. Faunce tohl the Brown University Teachers' Associa- tion today. While deploring the evasion of the obligations of the home and the church, Dr. Faunce said that schools must shoulder these burdens and should include "the creation of ideas an attitude toward life, a social con- sciousness, and the assignment of their pupils to a place in life as a main part of their work." "This is not the time to be afraid of our task and retire to some small corner of the great constructive field into which we have entered," he said. After his return to the United BR A DFORD States, he served for twelve years ia the Chicago diocese, and. when tbe DR UG CO. diocese of Cheyenne was erected, was chosen as its first ordinary, being The House of Quality consecrated by Archbishop Feehan in Chicago in 1887. The newly ereeted Phones: 4-0227, 40218 diocese had only six priests and about 4,500 Catholics. 209 W. Second St. In 189:3, at the request of the Right Rev. John J.
