THE GUARDIAN, SATURDAY, MAY 19, 192 NEW SEMIN00Y-sITE .......................... NOT A Gii-LiN-N_-Z ......... -MONSIGNOR TESTA HIGH SCHOOL CIASS KNEW LORD'S PRAYER (By N. C. W. C. News Service) New York, May 4."Not one girl in one of the public high school class- es knew the Lord's Prayer. - Inquiries among hundreds of high school girls showed that rarely (lid they knnw the Ten Commandments," was the state- ment made by Miss Lillian M. Elliot, principal of the Harlem Evening High School, at a conference last night at the Wadleigh High School. "It isn't that these pupils are immoral," she added. "They are unmoral." Miss Margaret Knox, principal of Public ,:School No. 15, also pointed out the need of ethical training. Over 500,000 girls and boys have no reli- gious affiliations of any kind, she de- clared. Miss Knox considered it es- sential that prows]on be made for weekday religious instruction to which the schools might dismiss the pupils. Although the schools have a syllabus on ethics; she doubted whether any- one of her 71 teachers ever perused it, as there was no time set aside for such instruction. No Time for Religion "We train the intelligence," she said, "and we have four hours and forty minuises a week for physical training, but we haven't any time set apart for teaching the spiritual side of the pupils or to talk of spiritual things. There must be a crusade to get definite lessons prescribed for each grade from the kindergarten through the high school." The conference was called for the purpose of establishing a movement to have the public schools provide definite moral instruetion. NEW SEMINARY IN DETROITWlLL BE STARTED IN JUNE Detroit, May 14.The cornerstone of the new Sacred Heart Seminary here will be laid with elaborate cere- mony June 17. Services will be held on the 28-acre site of the new insti- tution in the exclusive northwest resi- dential section. The Rt. Rev. Michael J. Gallagher, Bishop of Detroit, will officiate and the Rt. Rev. Joseph Scrembs, Bishop of Cleveland, will de- liver the sermon. It is anticipated that approximate- ly 50,000 persons including represen- tatives from each of the nearly 200 parishes in the Detroit diocese, and from Catholic lay organizations will take part in the ceremonies. The Holy Name Society, Knights of Columbus, Knights of St. John, Catholic Order of Foresters, Society of St. Vincent de Paul, the League of Catholic Women, and other organizations will be offi- cially relhresented. According to present plans the Seminary will be ready for occupancy in September, 1924. It is asserted that when completed, it will rank among the largest and most complete diocesan educational institutions in the world. pressed the view that the visit of the British soverign to the Vatican would be largely instrumental in ce- menting the good relations already existing between the Vatican and Great Britain and in the solution of many problems of a religious charac- ter between t]aem. CONCLUDES MISSION -IN RUHR DISTRICT (By N. C. W. C. News Service) Colgone, May 2.--Monsignor Testa, the papal delegate who had been in- vestigating conditions in the Ruhr district, is expected to conclude his mission in Germany during the early part of this month. Monsignor Testa has already left the Ruhr and has gone to Berlin, where he is expected to consult with Cardinal Pacelli, the papal nuncio. Many European newspaper corres- pondents have erroneously ascribed the action of several German bishops in deferring their visits to the Holy See till late in the year as being prompted by political considerations. There is no ground for this belief. The visits will be the customary conven- tional visits that bishops of different countries make each year. In the case of Cardinal Schulte of Cologne and Bishop Bornerwasser of Trier, the two prelates have been at the disposal of Monsignor Testa for the past several weeks. NOTABLE ART MODEL FOR CltURCtt INTERIOR MADE BY BENEDICTINE Manchester, N. H., May 14.--An unique achievement in American church architecture has been signal- lized by the completion of a minature model of the future interior of St. Vincent's Archabbey church of Beatty, Pa., the work of the Rev. Father Ra- phael, 0. S. B., of St. Anslem's Cgl- lege, in this city. The miniature represents the labor of eighteen months and will be trans- ported te Beatty, where it is to re- main for a year to allow monks anti students ample opportunity for sug- gestions of improvement before they undertake the giant task of reproduc- ing the model in the interior of the structure. St. Vincent's Archabbey Church is 250 feet in length and correspondingly high, and the miniature has been made on a scale of one inch to the foot. The purpose of the architect was not only to secure a harmonious design that would be symbolic of the history of the Benedictines in Ameri- ca, but to stimulate interest in Catho- lic artcraft and to influence those with artistic talent through the en- couragement of original ideas. It was this latter purpose that prompted Fa- ther Raphael, two years ago, to found the Catholic Art Association for the development of true Christian art and the diffusion of knowledge of artistic workmanship. 3,388,663 CATHOLICS IN CANADA BY FIGURES OF DOMINION CENSUS t t.
