C., told the closing meeting that the cry of government absolutism raised by "intellectually bank- rupt" individualism is v a 1 i d against Communism and Fascism but is not valid against a Chris- tian social order, Archbishop Stritch exhorted the delegates "co carry back to their communities, and to give application to, the principles they had learned at the conference. The Most Rev. Edwin V. O'Hara, Bishop of Great Falls, Mont., and Episcopal Chairman of the N .C. W. C.

"This year, they are willing to go to war "for the 'collective security' of so-called 'democracies' against 'Fascism.'

Hutchins, President of the University of Chicago, in an article in Common- weal, entitled "The University and Character." Declaring that "the role of ex- ternal and bodily goods in hap- . . . ,! piness cannot be mmmuzed, Mr. Hutchins says that what St. Au- gustine said must be remembered: "When we come across anything that is not common to us and the beasts of the field, it is something appertaining to the mind." "Even a vegetable lives," Mr. Hutchins says, "and may, :for a vegetable, live well. But we should hard- ly care to be happy in any sense in which a turnip could be happy. External and bodily goods are goods, and indispensable ones. But we want them not for their own sake but for the sake of the high- est operations we cart perform, the l moral and intellectual virtues. Ac-i tivity in accordance, with these is :happiness." Continuing, the educator de- clares that "the economic and so- cial injustice of our times results from the weakness or absence of the moral and intellectual vir- tues, which, as we have seen, are interdependent." "Economic and social injustice," he adds, "does not result from lack of informa- tion, lack of natural resources, or any failure of technology. We are plentifully supplied with all three. No, the principal issue of our day is a moral and intellectual one. The great problems of la- bor, capital, the Constitution, the judiciary, communism, fascism, war and peace revolved around fundamental questions which every student ought to face in- telligently, questions affecting the ends of economic activity, of or- ganized society, and of human 'l life."

(E}.---Speaking at Castelgandotfo on a day when the Eternal City was bedecked with swastikas to honor the visit of Reichsfuehrer AdoLf Hitler, Hls Holiness Pope Plus XI yesterday deplored the fact that in Rome, on a day dedicated to the Holy Cross, it was not found inconvenient to raise up another cross "which is not the Cross of Christ."

He recommended to the newly- married couples fidelity to the Christian life, and urged them to pray that the mercy of God, which from the beginning was extend- ed even to His crucifiers, may be extended fully to all, "to us as well, who above all have need of it." Covers were laid for Fathec Walshe, Mrs. Jesse Hart, Tyrus Stewart, Mrs. Philip Martin, Miss Mary Frances Jung, Harry Miller, Andrew Murray, Mrs. P. D.
