All Catholic residents in one Belfast street have received a warning in the following terms: "We have come to learn that you :re a rchel, so take notice that this house is required for a Loyalist and his family. We give you seven clear days' notice to pack ut) and leave. To ignore this warning 'means that you will be made to leave, for we will bomb yf)u out. You carry your life in your hands. In the future, your days are numbered, so prepare." The Protestant minority in the South, at thirty special meetings have declared that they suffered no oppression from their Catholic fel- low citizens. Archbishops and Bish- ops of the Protestant Church have is- sued pronouncements expressing hor- ror and apprehension at the deeds of violence and are appealing for the ex- ercise of a spirit of toleration and forbearance. Curate Threatened. Father Elliot(, a Catholic curate at Omagh,in Tyrone, was threatened and revilhd by a member of the "special" forces. Unionists business men in Omagh, at the same time, decided to make strong representations to Sir James Craig not to proceed with the disbttnding of the present special con- Btabulary forces, as arranged trader the terms of agreement entered into between the Irish Provisional Govern- ment, the 13e]fast representeative and the British Government. Church Bombed. Several bombs have been thrown, during the past week, at St. Matthew Church, which has been one of the chief Catholic edifices attacked by Orangemen. Mrs. McCabe, a member of the parish, died from injuries re- , ceived from a bomb thrown Sunday. No Fatalities in the South, Despite alarmist reports, not a sin- gle fataHty has occurred to date as a result of the controversies of oppos- ing political elements in the south of Ireland. Unrest has been greatly ex- aggerated in the press. Sentiment however, is against any military dis- play in connection with the campaign and the action of Catholic labor in condemning, impartially, the militar- ism' of all parties was welcomed by the Irish public. Teachers ])ave sup- ported the suggestion of the Labor Party for the cessation of work on one day and have agree'd to close the schools for one day.--Cox. DAILY MAS AT SEA i ! (gY N. C. W, C.

LADY ASTOR TAKEN TO TASK FOIl ANTI- CATHOLIC ATTACK (N N, , W. , NEWS s[avlc[) New York, April 24.--Lady Nancy Astor's observation, m-(de in the course of an ihterview last week, that America "was founded by Protestant and in the Protestant faith" has not been permitted to pass $nchallenged. The Knights of Columbus, whose campaign for the revision of history text books drew forth from the Eng- lish visitor her comment and the Rev. J. L. Belford, well known Catholic writer, have both given statements replying to Lady Astor's views. "I wouldn't put anything into a his- tory that is biased,"r sat(: Lady Astor in her original(interview. "A lot of foreigners in America forget the foundation of America. It was found- ed 'by Protestants and in the Protest- iant faith. It welcomes, all religions, :but I don't believe that any religion shouht mix in politics. When you get :politics and religion mixing, look out. Take politics out of religion and put religion in politics." i Asked whether she was, aware th/t the ](nights of Columbus / had under- taken to carry on a work in behalf of purifying American history, Lady Astor said: "I think that's, very unfortunate. This is a Protestant country, based on Protestant faith. Catholics are wel- come here, let them come. But they nmst remember that our foundations are Protestant and they can't be changed. I respect everybody's relig- ion, but I don't respect anyone who uses his religion for political pur- poses." The remarks were promptly met by a tatiment by the ](nights of Colum- bus, which was as follows: "Even painstaking gallantry cannot overlook the insults which the expat- riate Lady Astor so gayly threw at Catholics and Americans of Irish de- scent in her first elaborate interview after returning to the country she saw fit to reject. When she says 'a lot of these foreigners in America forget the foundation of America,' she not only forgets America s foundation, but she forgets that she, too, is a for- eigner, a voluntary alien. "Lady Astor graciously pronounces a welcome for Catholics and ungra- ciously states that America was founded by Protestants, and in the Protestant faith. It is difficult to a(use a lady of ignorance, but Lady Astor is "woefully ignorant of the facts.
