It was a reltl '" trlt- record Cb:: mencement Night at Little Rock Col- lege last Friday. It had all the ear- marks of a collegiate event. The col- lege auditorium filled to capacity with the relatives and friends of the grad- uates and a religious and civic repre- sentation of people interested in the affairs of Little Rock College and its membership. , It was the top-notch event crowning 15 years of progressive growth of our local educational institution. Sixteen young men, having completed the re- quired collegiate course were awarded the diploma of successful study and the degree of approval as educated men by the state-chartered college au- thorities. Under the full moon the usual and classical procession of graduates, de- glee men and honored guests, escort- ing the Rt. Rev.

L Number 51 METHODIST MONTE MARIO PROJECT STIRS ITALIANS Government Urged to Purchase the Site and Prevent a Crime Against the Beauty of St. Peter's Group of Buildings. (By N. C. W. C. News Service) Washington, June 4.-The bad taste, to put it mildly, of American missionary eflterprise, as illustrated by the Methodist project for the con- struction of a group of buildings on Monte Marie in Rome with the obvi- ous pm3)ose of overshadowing the Vatican, has apparently so stirred Italian resentment that a protest has been logged with the government. Ac- cording to Associated Press despatch- es from Rome, Deputy Cingolani in- terloped the government concerning the purchase of a portion of Monte Marie by American Methodists. The government deemed a reply "inadvis- GERMAN WOMEN the forefront of German political life and promise to be a potent factor in the reconstruction of the nation, ac- cording to Frau Hedwig Dransfeld, a member of the German Reichstag, and Frau Helene Weber, a member of the Prussian Landtag, who are visiting the United States for the purpose of studying 'Catholic women's organiza- tions here and establishing closer con- tact between American Catholic wo- men and their German sisters. The entry of women into the politi- cal life of Germa/,y, according  r " visitors, has been one of the most significant developmen#s brought about as a result of the revolution and the influence that women have been able to exert has been of great benefit for the protection of home life and sane reform. Four Catholic women hold seats in the German Reichstag and seven hold seats in the Prussian Landtag; a large number in view of the Catholic mi- nority in Prussia. / LEGISLATORS ON able" anti Torrents the Deputy of Gold continued: "Americans in Italy enjoy the best TOUR OF THE U. s of hospitality from the Italian peo- e@ [ ple, and they render bad service to the cordial relations between the two (By N.

Deputy Cingolani, who is a Catho- lic, urged that the government pur- chase the site in question and erect on it a monument to Dante as the ex- ponent of Catholic thought. Violate Canons of Good Taste The Methodist project, of course, is to be attributed to American Metlo- dists alone, but it is doubtful whet]aer Italian opinion will discriminate to that extent. 'Americans generally are put in the position of violating the canort of international [od taste by he  ill-advised Spending of m'0ney, a stigmas which many foreigners are only too willing to. put upon them and it is quite likely that the build- ings in process of erection on Monte Marie will be generally regarded as a monument to what is held to be an American trait of questionable value rather than to religious zeal.
