PA(B EIGHT "'" "u'SiF00&'i00 " " : sov0000.r P00F0000nON $ * By Autolycum * Fish or Flesh "When you take a bite of frog leg, do you think you are eating animal or fish?" asks a newspaper, which goes on to remark that a Chicago court must decide the frog's status for the purpose of determining the ad- missibility of an action brought by the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The question, as stated, is easily answered. Any living organ- ism endowed with sense perception may be described as an animal. A fish .Catholic Monopolists What a'e the reasons which prevent a Catholic bookseller from pushing the sale of Papini's "Life of Christ?" As the work has been lauded by corn-, petent Catholic reviewers, there are two possible (but, I think, inadmissi- ble) reasons. First: It was trans- lated by a non-Catholic. Second; The translator worked with a non-Catholic version of the Bible. It should be re- membered, however, that these two eiumstances have given the" book a popularity and a usefulness which it could never have enjoyed if published under Catholic auspices. Given the enterprise, I suppose there was noth- ing to prevent a Catholic from trans- lating the work, or a Catholic pub- lisher from publishing it. Papini is now writing a "story of the Virgin Mary." Prhaps a Catholic house will give us this in English. If not, and if :come other house secures it, I suppose that" some aCtholic booksellers will OF RELIGION REBUKED BY LIVING CHURCH HEAD THE GUARDIAN, SATURDAY, JUNE 16, 1923 I PREACHERS REGALE IN KLAN REGALIA WITH BIGOTRY SOP Conduct of Boishevi-----'ts Too Violent (By N.
