We have found that you must sell the idea of this Course to each individual--and nothing that we have tried--neither appeals in per- son or by letter to priests and peo- ple, nor our weekly newspaper articles and advertisements--could compare with the help given us by the personal recommendation of the Auxiliary Bishop. In secur- ing students for this Course by mail, the support of the Clergy is indispensable. Our Mission Unit has shared in carrying the benefits of the Course to our boys in the service. The en- rollment among Catholics and non- Catholics for this year is just about fifty-fifty. We have experienced conversions among 'both groups. Uninstructed Catholics have re- turned to the practice of their holy Faith, or to a position of under- standing where they can better defend their Faith, before their friends, against objections and error. Not only does the Course give a well balanced picture of the Church from many sides, but it is psychologically sound.

The trend of the Army and Navy in specialized programs to do away entirely with liberal education for the war's duration is criticized by Father Rooney. "Of necessity, opportunity for liberal education must be sharp- ly curtailed during the war," Father Rooney writes, "but its total disappearance from the edu- cational world, even in time of war, would be a grave and un- necessary tragedy. England and Canada are no less interested in winning this war than we are in America. Yet both these coun- tries have made provision for keeping liberal institutions open for the duration." "Never was there a time when bold and courageous thinking and speaking were more necessary on the part of educators, since never before have they been faced with so difficult a problem," Father Rooney asserts in advocating some retention of liberal education to train youths to win the peace. "They must not be overrawed by ex thedm pronouncements of Washington officialdom. Now, if ever, is a time for exercising aca- demic freedom," he states, calling i upon educators to display vision and courage.
