Dubuque, Ia., April 25.--The three standard colleges conducted by dio- cesan priests having membership in the North Central Association of Col- leges are headed by Columbia Col- ieg~ graduates. This fact has been disclosed in connection with the re- cent appointment of th~ Rev. Dr. Martin Cone as president of St. Am- bro~e College, Davenport, Mich., to the Superintendents' Section go on record as formally deploring any tendency which would regard reli- gious instruction as merely another subject added to the curriculum." The Section further resolved that it "advocate a view of Catholic edu- cation which co-ordinates the nat- ural and supernatural orders, and as- sures the correct education of the heart together with the mind by a scientific application of those prin- ciples which will make religion in practice pervade the entire school curriculum and all life." This resolution concluded with the declaration that the Section "regard the discovery of the correct applica- tion of these principles to efficient character building through more in- tensive attention to methods, texts succeed the Rev. Dr. A. U. Hauber, and effective correlation as the ms- cation Schools cannot be borne per- manently by the office of the Dio- cesan Superintendent. Responsibil- ity for this work must, of course, rest finally upon the local pastor. Rev. John M. Wolfe, Diocesan Su- perintendent of Schools, Dubuque, Iowa, in his paper "T,he Relation Be- tween Religious Practices and Moral Practices" made the following state- ment in reference to the encyclical of Pope Plus XI on Christian educa- tion of youth. The encychcal is a statement of social and educational normalcy, and as such it might be interpreted as implying also an indirect condemna- tion of the extremes of supernatural- ism, or such as make little defined scientific effort to discover througk modern means, the best tools and methods for the educational proced- ure in matters religious." Liturgical Element. "The Liturgical Element in Reli- gious Instruction," an interesting pa- per by Rev. Henry M. Hald, Associ- ate Superintendent of Schools, Brook- lyn, N. Y., contained the following principle: "The school is the nursery of our hopes, and it is in the school that the liturgical spirit must be implant- ed. Education according to the mod- ern slogan is a preparation for life, and Catholic education is a prepara- tion for eternal life through a life in the Church. Such a life can be real- ized completely by participation in the liturgy. Let us not have a con- fused understanding of the word 'lit- urgy'; in its restricted sense it means the official public acts of worship of the Church; in its broader sense it may include the devotional spirit which underlies the acts of worship and of which such acts are the vis- ible expression. It is in this broader sense that we use the term here.

Rev. F. D. Sullivan, S.
