II is activities and lack of preparation or1 tile part of both the man and the wo- man are given as the causes for nmch domestic unrest and final legal di- vorce by Bradley Hull, head of the P, ureau of ])onmstic Relations in this city. Relief Bureau Iln bureau was organized in 1920 ' *S and through Mr. Hull's efJorLa has had a considerable effect in decreas- ing the number of couple who seek relief from their dissatisfied state in divorce. Prior to tile establishment of the Bureau tbe divorce record in this county had increased 150 per cent. Getting at the foundation for the state of affairs Mr. ]lull said: Current Literature Ohl Basis "A generation ago there began to develop a ccratin movement of (tis, content an(t protest which found its ex- pression to a great extent in litera- ture-that is, m current literature. A Ichallengc to existing customs com- menced to take form. l)urmg the last ten years the spir- 'it of discontent and protest has gain- 'ed momentum, a momentunl which has been accelerated by tim extreme feminist movement. Today i is a sig- nificant thing that people no longer take the stability of marriage for granted, but rather look upon it as one of the experiences of life. Practice of Collusion "It is my experience that the prac- tice of collusion between husband and i wife to secure a divorce is becoming a [ prewtlent custom. They agree to dis- i agree. After they decide to end their t marital difficulties in the divorcel court they make a pact to tell the court just enough to secure the di- vorce and withhold many other facts so that neither party will suffer em- barrassment. "Men and women are equally re- sponsible for the growing increase in American divorces. I am unwilling to accept the idea that there is any dis- tinction between inert all(| women when it is a question of their legal separation by divorce. Neither the nlan nor the woman has a Iilellopoly of the virtues or the vices; t)oth are about on the sanle level regardinl faults rout temptations. Lack of Home Training "l,ack of home training of chil- dren for the married state also enters into tire problem. While the girl is going to school the mother will say, 'Well, she will be young only once and there is no use tying her down with housework.' After school days are over the girl goes out to work and pays her board at home. "When she getsqnarried, she fre- quently suggests that she continue her outside employment, and it is rarely that she can fit in as both wage earner and home-maker. The trouble today is that all the ohl inhi- bitions are being questioned and their power to control is being shaken. We carry the theory of individualism to the extreme. We must get ack to the theories of the past generations and then marriage will regain its stabil- ity." What a world of difference there is between sunlight and daylight! Day- light is knoW'ledge.

A high dignitary of the State Church has written indignantly to the press, calling attention to this insidious attempt at "Romanizing" by means of the moving pietm:es.

Some of tile Problems Some of the problems Mrs. Itinkle set before her hearers in which they could find plenty to do: were: Care of immigrants; leadership in schools, so- cial settlement work, protection of women in industry; action against baneful motion pictures, and care of the colored parishioners. Mrs. Hinkle said that Catholic laity today is just beginning to see what the clergy has l.ong seen--that great help and unified effm't must be given to the priest and sisters; that these alone cannot carry on tile work to be done by the Chm:eh as a n'ttional and international force. I BERLIN NOW HAS t CATHOLIC BISHOP l Cologne, March 19.--The Rt. Rev.] Joseph I)eitmer hau been appointed Auxiliary Bishop of Breslau with resi- dence in Berlin, thus realizing the often expressed desire of German Catholics that the cal)ital of the for- mer Empire shouhl be honored by tile residence of a Catholic ecclesiastic of episcol)al rank.
