Grant Given For Seminar At Lady Of Lake College San Antonio. (Special).A sub- stantial grant has been made to Our Lady of the Lake College, San Antonio, Texas, by the Of- fice of the Co-ordinator of Inter- American Affairs of Washington, D.C. The grant will be expended for an edtlcational workshop and a series of seminars to be held at the College from June 9 to July 16. The educational workshop, which is to be under the general direction of Miss Elma Neal, As- sistant Superintendent of the San Antonio Public Schools in charge of elementary education, will em- phasize methods and materials to be employed by teachers of Span- ish-speaking children and the im- provement of the general back- ground in Latin-American ma- terials of both elementary and secondary teachers. Two short courses, both inten- sive and experimental, will be of- fered in the Spanish and English languages to assist in the removal of linguistic difficulties. In both courses training and the ability to speak the language will re- ceive special consideration by especially qualified instructors. Mr. Paul Murray, Principal of the American School Foundation in Mexico City, will conduct a seminar in contemporary political collaboration between the Ameri- cas. Reverend Raymond McGowh an of the Social Action Depart- ment of the National Catholic Welfare Conference will lead a similar seminar in religious un- derstanding between the Amer- icas. erend Auxiliary have been attend- ing the sesquicentennial celebra- tion held in New Orleans on May 11, and 12. Other representatives of the Diocese who attended this event are the Rt. Roy. Msgr. John J. Healy, the Very Rev. Msgr. Ed- ward P. Garrity, the Rt. Roy. Msgr. Francis A. Allen, and' the Rt. Roy. Msgr. H. H. Wernke. The New Orleans Archdiocese is the second oldest diocese in the United States, and is the mother diocese of four Archdioceses, and 25 Dioceses. Little Rock wns at one time a part of this diocese, and is still under the New Orleans Archdioceses. St. Louis Cathedral was the first Cathedral between the Alleghenes, and the Pacific Coast. Many his- toric events have taken place in this old church. All of the Bish- ops and Archbishops who have ruled the See have been installed from this Cathedral. New Orleans established the first convent in the country, and the first Catholic girls' school. During the 150 years of service, the flags of many nations have flown above the Cathedral. The Standards of Spain, France, the United States, the Louisiana Re- public, the Stars and Bars of the Confederate States, and again the Stars and Stripes have flown in succession. Film On Our Lady Of Guadalupe Praised Mexico City. (EILa Virgen que ForJo una Patria "The Virgin who Forged a Country," is described by el Universal as a motion pic- ture which "along with deep re- ligious £ecling has a profound patriotic significance and high artistic worth." For two consecutive years Julio Bracho, called the youngest and most efficient of Mexican film directors, won the Capital's award for his able direction of pictures of lighter mood; but it was not until he felt perfectly sure of him- self and had attained sufficient experience, that he launched upon a theme which he had considered for some years and for which he held true veneration: the story of the appartions of Our Lady of Guadalupe. "As a Mexican, a believer and an artist," E1 Universal says, "Julio Bracho put into this work all his endeavor, affection and en- thusiasm. He did not want his story to be a simple pastoral, but a work impregnated with a re- ligious miracle in a deeply pat- riotic sense: and, basing it on the well-known work of Rene Cap- istran Garza, he has achieved a production which along with deep religious feeling has a profound I patriotic significance and high lartistic worth." of Catholic Daughters of America will be held at Pine Bluff, Sun- day, May 16, 1943, with Court Vic- tory, Pine Bluff, as the hostess Court, Mrs. Christine Ernst, Grand Regent.

Students graduating from Ca- Catholic High Annual Memorial To Reich Reveals Remarkably Clear Stand Of Bishops Washington. (E)--A rampart of bitterness and enmity is being erected around Germany due to the ruthless interference of Nazi officials with freedom of conscience and the religious life of the pop- ulations, the German Hierarchy declares in a memorial submitted to their Government, in which they once more appeal for a cessation of the persecution of religion. A copy of the document has reached this country ahd is vouched for by a highly reliable source. The German prelates point out that cruel anti-religious measures have been adopted not only within Germany proper but also in invaded lands, citing specifically persecutory activities in Alsace- Lorraine, Luxembourg, Poland and Yugoslavia. Dated at Fulda, where the Ger- man Hierarchy assembled in An- nual Conference, on December 18, last, the memorial is  signed for all the Bishops by His Eminence Adolf Cardinal Bertram, Arch- bishop of Breslau. It is directed to the Minister of the Reich for Church Affairs, the Minister for the Interior and the Chief of the Reich Chancellory.. At its outset, the Bishops note in their memorial that the Nazi Government failed to make reply to a similar memorial of complaint drafted by the prelates one year previously on December 10, 1941. Evils Have Grown Worse "We have asked for relief," the Bishops state, "not only because of religious interests, but also from love of the Fatherland .... The evils complained of continue to exist; some, in fact, have grown worse. "This plea of ours extends-- and that is the ground for this new petition--with the same urgency to the vital interests of the Ca- tholic Church and the free prac- tice of the religion of Catholic Christians in the territories that recently have come to Germany." "We cannot shut our eyes," the Bishops tell the Nazi authorities, "to the great misery of these German people, and we must also lit our voices or the sake of the respect for the name German. It is incomprehensible that now, in the midst of this hard war, Ger- man people who have come to the Reich wi:h great confidence and with expectation raised to a high pitch are forced back by Ger- many, embittered to the depths of their souls. Around Germany, in all the occupied territories, a rampart of bitterness and enmity is being erected, which has arisen in large part because of the ruth- less interference of the officers of the party and the civil ad- ministration kvith freedom of con- science and the religious life of the population." In their reference to Alsace- Lorraine, the German Bishops tell how the arriving Reich troops were received there with great enthusiasm. The memorial then reviews the bitter perscution of their religion that has been the reward for Alsace-Lorraine. "Even worse," the prel{tes state, "is the  hostile rejection ' of all Germans which has grown up in Luxenbourg." The liking of the Luxembourgers for Germans has been alienated, the Bishops de- clared, by "the ruthlessly execut- ed closing of the monasteries and the sharp measures for restricting the work of the cure of souls of the clergy and the strengthening of the faithful in their religon, the banishments of priests and mem- bers of religious Orders and the placing of numerous respected Luxembroug citizens in concen- tration camps, which frequently resulted in the death of the person placed there, within a short time. Persecution In Poland In telling of the intensity of the persecution in Poland, the Bishops open with these words: "Even more cheerless than in the West is the religious situation in the newly-attached eastern territor- ies." Particularly bitter, they state, are those of German blood who remained loyal to their Ger- man traditions throughout the years of Polish rule and who now find themselves "treated as public enemies and placed under sur- veillance" by the Nazi invaders. Of those "regions which have returned to the Reich after be- longing to Yugoslavia for 20 years," the German Bishop says: "There, too, almost all the priests and members of Orders have been forced out, entirely without means into lower Ukrainia, occupied by the Ital- ians, or Croatia, or have been placed in concentration camps." "This treatment of the Slov- enos," the German Bishops con- tinue, "deeply believing and zeal- ous in religion, has caused the en- thusiasm for Germany that existed[ in 90 per cent of the population, according to the judgment of per- sons acquainted with the country, to turn into hatred of the Get. roans. A special contributing fac- tor in this was also the removal of numerous Slovenes to other areas, as well as placing them in see GERMANY on !e q toward ia- and grievously, but they rights as well as the la- L.
