PAGE SIX THE GUARDIAN, APRIL 29, 1938 ., ,c/, :'t: 'ii!/ Plight of German Nuns Enlists Sympathy in U.S. New York, April 22. (E).--Fourl thousand German Sisters of the Institute of the Blessed Virgin Mary, also known as the "En- glische Fraeulein" (English La- dies), have been deprived of the work to which they have consec- rated their lives and are without the means of supporting them- selves as the result of decrees of the Ministries of Education in Ba- varia, Hesse and Prussia which have just become effective. Their plight is so serious and affects so many religious at one blow, that it is a principal con- corn of the Bishop's Committee for Catholic Refugees from Germany, Belloc Says Austrian Catholic Strength Reduced Breda, April 18. (EL--The dis- appearance of Austria as an inde- pendent State is going to accentu- ate the de-Christianizatlon of Catholic Germany, Hilaire Belloc states in an article written for the C. P. news service. The Ansch- : luss, he adds, in its complexity is essentially a religious problem. "Austria was and will be for years to come," Belloc declares, i "the entirely Catholic province of  the German community, of all Germanic culture. Of the 20,000,- 000 families making use of the German language and culture half, or nearly that, is Catholic in origin. The other half is Pro- testant. If all these Protestants for the most part have preserved little of their religious principles, all adopt toward the Catholic Church an indifferent or hostile attitude. Fruit of the Reformation "Ancient dogmas have disap- peared, or there is little need of them among the Protestants, but the social consequences---fruit of the Reformation -- continue to make their effects felt. They take pride in them--are they not at the head of the race Their cen- ter, Berlin, has become the cap- ital of all 'Duetschtum' and since the triumph of the politics of Bis- marck, the non-Catholic or anti- Catholic section of Germany has set the tone. Catholicity of Youth Weakened "Doubtless Germans who are Catholic by tradition generally practice their religion. But if one observes the Germanic language section of Switzerland, Austria, Czechoslovakian Bohemia and Polish Silesia, one is forced to conclude that scarcely half behave like practicing Catholics. It must be noted especially that it is the older men who are true Catholics, while youth finds itself deeply impregnated already by the new religion of the raee--Germanism is presented to it as the religion of the day. "And it is precisely in this that the danger for tomorrow lies. The despotism of Berlin will bend all its efforts toward estranging youth from Catholic traditions. This will be accomplished parti- ally by continued persecution di- rected against Catholic educational ins. t.it0.ns at!d by various other means nd methods, Doubtless these attempts 0 far have had little success in the gricultural egion of Germany, but nv0rthe- less, alas, it is g0|hg o come to pasS: '" "The disappearance of Austria as an independent State is going to accentuate the de-Christianiza- tlon of Catholic Germany." Speaker" Emphasizes ....... h'/sh Rural Problems Dublin. (.  An Rioghachl (League of Christ the King) is distinguished among other activi- ties by the quality of the public lectures given under its auspices. A discussion on housing has held the attention of the Society in i two lectures given in Dublin. At the second the Rev. 5. Canavan, S. J., spoke on the grave prob- lem of the constant flow of peo- ple from the country to the towns and mainly to Dublin. "Agriculture, he said, is Ire- land's basic industry and demands special attention. "It is fully time," he added, "that our people--after 18 years of self-government should ask whether sufficient at- tention has been paid to that ques- tion, and demand from the Gov- ernment quite a clear stand in the matter, and not merely a vote- catching policy." the headquarters o which is at 123 Second Street, here. The Most Roy. Joseph F. Rummel, Arch- bishop of New Orleans and Chair- man of the Bishops' Committee, has heartily expressed the belief that these Religious, victims of a form of ruthless persecution, are entitled to sympathetic coopera- tion from American Catholics. The Committee is solicitou about actual help and suggestions of employment for the Sisters in this country. Sisters Have Been Educating German Youth 300 Years The Sisters of the Institute of the Blesed" Virgin Mary, or the "Englische Fraeulein," have been educating the youth of Germany, particularly in Bavaria, for more than 300 years. Until now they have had 4,000 members laboring unselfishly in 128 cities and towns of Germany, ministering to the temporal and spiritual needs of many thousands of German chil- dren. Since 1935 the work of the "En- glische Fraeulein" has been re- stricted in many ways. They were deprived of the care of several hundred elementary schools in June, 1937. In January, 1938, the Bavarian Ministry of Education directed that, effective April 1, 1938, all the schools of higher edu- cation conducted by the Sisters should be closed. This decree has become effective. It was announc- ed by the Ministry that a very few institutions could rejaain open temporarily, but under Nazi prin- ciples, a condition impossible to accept. Government Makes No Provision for Care of Sick nd Aged Nms The Ministries of Education of Hesse and Prussia have ordered the closing of other schools con- ducted by the "Englische Fraeu- lein," and restriction of the num- ber of classes and pupils to be taught in the schools remaining open. No provision of any kind is made by the government for the care of the nuns, not even of the sick and aged ones, thus depriv- ed of the work by which they sup- ported themselves. And yet these Religious, whose great educational work was lauded by Church and State alike only eleven years ago, at the celebration of their tercen- tenary in Germany, are more con- cerned over the fate of their pu- pils. The children formerly under their charge are now deprived of religious education and exposed to destructive influences. The plight of this group of nuns is apparently one of the results of the vigorous move in Germany for the Nazification of schools and Nazi control of youth in general. Two New Member00 Join Study Club At Ratcliff Ratcliff, Ark.  The regular meeting of the St. Augustine's Study Club of Ratcliff was held on Monday, April 25, with two new members, Mr. John Geisbauer and Mr. Thomas Hagan, present. The Roy. Augustine Linbeck, O.

French Secular Paper Pays Holy See Tribute Paris, April 18. (E).--The Cath- olic Press has not been alone in praising the way in which the Holy See has proclaimed the rights of the Church and of mor- ality in the midst of the difficult and distressing circumstances of the Austrian drama. Le Temps, a secular daily, the direction of.which for a long time in the past was Protestant, says: "The attitude of the Holy See commands respect. It shows that if political forces have had to bow with disconcerting facility before un fair accompli, henceforth and irremediably, the moral forces which the Church represents has scarcely abdicated before the vio- lence done to the Austrian nation and to the Christian conscience." Scene of Budapest Congress Budapest, Hungary, scene of the 34th Intamatlonal Eucharistic Congress in May, has been known since the days of the Romans as a gay health resort where Europeans could spend their ]toll- days, and drink and bthe in the rejuvenating waters of its many medicinal and thermal springs. Today, as in Ronn times, the city Is dotted with elaborate swimming pools conta/uing the magic wters. The picture above is taken at the Szechenyi Bathing Pool. There are two surf pools in the c/ty, equipped with .intrleate mechauisms which send strong waves surging through them, and the indoor pool at the St. Gellert Hotel is filled with effervescent water from a thermal spring.

Results of the contests will be. made lo]own at commencement exercises on Sunday, May 29, when the annum award of gold medals and other honors will take flaee. Medals are awarded for char- [ acter, Christian Doctrine, a "Know Your-Religion" contest, L a t in, English, modern foreign language, mathematics, and for the highest averages in the classical, science, and commercial courses. There is a medal for the leader in each course. Donors of medals included, in recent past years: The Most Rev. John B. Morris, D. D., Bishop of Little Rock; the Most Rev. Jo- seph P. Lynch, D. D., Bishop of Dallas, Tax.; The Rt. Rev. Ed- ward Burgers, O. S. B., Ph.D., president of the college and acad- erny; Governor Carl E. Bailey of Arkansas; Mr. J. J. Krebs, of Little Rock; Mr. J. J.
