FIRST MARYKNOLL BISHOP'S CONS ECRATION (By N. C. W. C. News Service) New York, April 9.---Word has reached the headquarters of the Ca- tholic Foreign Mission Society of America, at Maryknoll, N. Y., that the Society's first bishop-elect, the Rt. Rev. James E. Walsh, of Cumber- land, Md., may be consecrated at Sancian Island Jund: 29. Sancian, a rock-bound little island lying southwest of the delta of the West River, in South China, is the scene of Saint Francis Xavier's death and the sacred spot of the Maryknotl missions. June 29 is the Society's Foundation Day, and this year will mark Maryland's sixteenth anniver- sary. "I am neither a lawyer nor a theologian. What knowledge of law I have was gained in course of my long experience in the legislature and as chief executive of New York state. I had no such opportunity to study theology. "My first thought was to answer you with just the faith that is in me. But I knew instinctively that your conclusions could be logically proved f,a]se. It seemed right, therefore, to take counsel with some one schooled in the church law, from whom I learned whatever is hereafter set forth in definite answer to the theological questions you raise. Confers With Noted Catholic "I selected one whose patriotism neither you nor any other man will question. He wears upon his breast Distinguished Service Cross of our country, the Distinguished Service Medal, ~he ribbon of the Legion of Honor, and the Croix de Guerre with palm of the French republic. He was the Catholic chaplain of the almost wholly Catholic 165th regiment in the World war--Father Francis P. DuffY, now in the military service of my own state." After g~ving his interpretation of Mr. Marshall's letter and stating that there was no conflict be,tween religious loyalty and patriotic loyalty, the governor said: "I have taken the oath of office in this state 19--times. Each time, I swore to defend and maintain the constitution of the United Sta,tes. (Continued on page 4.) age of 16 brough,t before the juvenile courts is recorded in a government report jus~ issued. The report deals with the year 1925. In 1913, the year before the war, the number was 34,662. The peak was reached during the war years. In 1917 the number was 51,323. Since then the number has declined, until in the year under reveiw it was 27,- 801. The Departmental Committee on the Treatmen~ of Young Offenders which makes the report, deprecates strongly any indiscriminate use of whipping. "To the boy who is ner- vously unstable or mentally unbal- anced," the committee state, "the whipping may do more harm than good. The mischievous boy, on the other hand, who has often been cuff- ed at home will make light of the matter and even pose as ~ hero to his companions." LIBRARY TO COLLEGE AND N. Y. SOCIETY Morristown, N. J., April 9.---The New York Historical Society and Seton Hall College at South Orang~. received the library of the late M~st Rev. Robert Seton, titular Archbishop of Heliopolis, who died at the Col- lege of St. Elizabeth on March 22, under the terms of his will which has been filed for probate here. The library, which is to be divided between the Historical Society and the College, includes a number of his- torical documents as well as numer- ous volumes, including the late pre- fate's own writings. One of these is "An Old Family," a genealogical study of the ancient Scotch family of Seton, of which he was a member. The will leaves the residue X~f the estate to the Sisters of Charity who conduct the College of St. Elizabeth.
