Ireland Chooses Protestant As First President Dublin. (N:). -- The selection of Dr. Douglas Hyde as first Presi- dent of Ireland by agreement be- tween the two great parties in the Daft has come with some surprise though not without satisfaction to the nation. It will be remembered that the suggestion of an agreed candidate for the Presidency was first made by His Eminence Joseph Cardinal MacRory, Archbishop of Armagh, and the Cardinal has expressed his satisfaction that the matter has been amicably settled. As far back as New Year's Day the Cardinal made a plea in a sermon in Ar- magh Cathedral for agreement. "The President," he said "will be expected to be outside of and above all parties; but if he be re- turned in an election as the nomi- nee of a party there will always be the danger of suspicion that he will favor that party."

Lethe. of Louisiana (upper left}, and Mayor Robert Maestri, of New Orleans {upper right} will be hosts to the delegates to the annual national convention of the Catholic Press Association of the United States. to be held at New Orleans. May 29, 20 and 21. The sessions will be presided over by Vincent de Paul Fitzpatrick (lower photo}. Man- aging Editor of "The Catholic Re- view," Baltimore.' and President of theC. P.A. Ottawa. (E).--"Creditable to Erin' -- on all counts, it is especially a, j[ d-g touch of tolerance that all the U es in K. of C. world's in need of," declares The Ottawa Journal, daily 00ularlEssay Contest newspaper, in a lead editorial. "Southern Ireland is 98 per cent Roman Catholic," the edi- Are Announced torial says. "Yet this overwhelm- ingly Catholic people, the first ar- ticle of whoe constitution begins with the words 'in the name of the Most Holy Trinity,' has selected as their President and first citi- zen Dr. Douglas Hyde, a Protes- tant, son of a Protestant clergy- man. In a world of clashing creeds and ideologies, of hates and sus- picions, it is a gleam in the sky. "Yet not surprising to those who know the Irish story. Down through the centuries, in their long struggle for self-government, the leaders to whom the South- ern Irish gave allegiance were of an alien faith. "The truth is that in religious tolerance, Dublin has always been one of the world's most civilized cities. There, in the Gaelic Society or in the Abbey Theatre group, Protestants and Catholics, whether at variance in political views or not, have always worked together. German Bishop Issues Pastoral On Persecution Amsterdam. (:).--Upon his re- turn rom his ad limina visit to Rome, the Most Rev. Albert Stohr, Bishop of Mainz, Germany, issued a Pastoral in which he asks "if the ethics and philosophical prin- ciples of National Socialism con- stitute a sort of religion for man, then what becomes, I ask you, of the true religion? What is the domain reserved to the Church as her own in this hypothesis?" The Diocese of Mainz, its Bish- op declares, has had its share of persecutions, including the pro- hibition of public religious cere- monies, of feasts organized in hon- or of the Bishop, and of pastoral visits to the schools, and pres- sure brought to bear upon par- ents to prevent them from "en- trusting to us the education of their children." All these viola- tions at Mainz, as elsewhere, the Pastoral states, were pretested against to the proper authorities, but in vain. Bishop Stohr declares that his recent visit to the Sovereign Pon- tiff was "a new source of hope and confidence, and of support as well." "They try to represent the Pope as a foreign sovereign," he comments, "but he feels a pa- ternal affection for all the nations of the world and he has given special proof of this to the German nation."

Sheridan speaking at the forty-eighth an- niversary banquet of St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church here, urged a strong Christian front against subversive elements in the world today. Strengthening of the ties af in- terdenominational friendship is more essential today then ever be- fore in view of world conditions, he said. Russia and Germany were termed examples of the havoc which could be caused by sacrilegious dictators. Catholic Press Week Is HeM in South India Tutieorin , South India. 0).-- What is believed to have been the first Catholic Press week in India was celebrated here. It was inaugurated by the Bish- op, the Most Rev. Francis T. Roche, S. J., who pointed out that the day was not far distant when in India, as elsewhere, a National i Catholic Front will have to be constituted to withstand the grow- ing forces of irreligion and com- munism. The Press Week, he hoped, would serve as a prelude to i the growth of such a front. A ready response was received to an appeal for subscriptions to make :the apostolate of the press a living i force in the Tuticorin Diocese. Within three days 250 new sub- scribers to the local Catholic paper were enrolled.
