Progression will on'ly come to us in our united strength and we do not have to look afar to find that if we are now weak, it is due to that lack of united effort, which seems to be the vulnerable spot attracting those who would make us weaker. There are those who have ever seen and even ap- preciated our Catholic school system as the great bulwark of Catholic strength in his and future generations. Our schools seem to be the object of attack on the part of many who would crush us if they could, and to do so, would first try to weaken our very foundations. Day by (lay the attack of these people upon our parochial schools in- creases in its intensity. .hrough the medium of their press, ably seconded by the big" daily papers, tley are trying to influence our legislative bodies national as well as state, in order to seculx legislation which will further their purpose, namely, the closing of our schools, because they fully realize the importance of our schools in keeping Catholicity in this, our beoved country, intact. FUTURE OF MANKIND. We cannot close our eyes to the fact, but that today is being fought the battle for the future of mankind; for religion and morality, marriage and family; in shout, for all that we hold holy. To defend our holy mother the church, our schools, our moral code, every i Catholic man, every Catholic woman, irrespective of language or nationality, has to put forth the vcuT best that is within him or her. DUTY TO ORGANIZE. However,•with our forces, scattered, there are those who will come out of the fit'ht triumphant and rejo,ice in an easy victolT. Therefore it is our duty to or-anize ourselves into one great union of defense, in order to put up a united front, ready to avel any attack at vny time our common enemy sees fit to strike. The German Catholic Federation of Arkansas has always stood for the rights of our Clmrch, for the freedom of our fellowmen, and has given their very best efforts to solve the social program in the spiri of Pope Leo XIII, as may be proven by the minutes of our previous Annual Conventions.

' May 26, Mr. Anthony MatTe, National Secretary, Catholic Federation of the U. S. Chicago, Ills. Dear Sir: Replying to your favor of the 21st inst., we wish to express to you our sincere regret that any articles should have left this office that contained anything in any Way offensive to either the Catholic religion or the tsh race. We assure you that the two instances which you mention were due entirely to carelessness on the part of the management, and not to any desire to villify a religion and a race which have done so much to ad- vance civilization. The offensive articles mentioned left this office during the absence of the writer of this letter. Their au- thor has been in our employ for some time, and we repose not little faith in her good judgment,  and therefore trusted her to edit her own work dur- ing the writer's absence from the city. Your letter clearly shows us that our faith was misplaced. The author in question is no longer in our employ. Errors will occur, no matter how Cardinals Logue ann Prior was in his place The second of the Chapter of Archpriest Card- and among the "Bishop of Era- careful one may be. This particular one however, was an extremely ser- ious ones, and we promise you that it wil not occur againwhile the present management is in control of the Editols Press Syndicate. We shall edit our matter more carefully in the future. We thank you sincerely for bring- ing this matter to our attention, we are Sincerely yours, Editor's Press Syndicate, BERT R. KATES, Managing Editor• Respectfully yours, i committee of said organization, encouraged from many sides to do so, and Anthony Metre, wishing- to make Sunday, the 15th of August, a real Catholic day a "Great National Sec'y.

Our invitation is intended for: 200 Fifth Avenue I All the Catholic clergy of the State ' All Catholic mens' societies, All Catholic ladies' societies, All Catholic young mens' societies, All Catholic young" women,s societies, All the church choir.% and All other Cttholic organizations. And we sincerely hope ',hat our call will bring delegations from all over the State, and that then and there the initial steps toward the organization )f a "Catholic Federation of the State of Arkansas," comprising each and every member of our Holy Church in our State may be taken. FEAST OF ASSUMPTION THE DAY. Sunday, the 15th day of August, 1920, hould be a red letter day for all thh Catholics of Arkansas and your generous assistance will do much towar& realizing our hope. Lend us your helping hand and should there not" exist in ;our parish any of the above mentioned organizations, now would be the time io brin" them together• CATHOLICS MORALLY BOUND. Every Catholic is morally bound to work on the uplift of the human race, says Professor Dr. Beck, Freiburg,:Switzerland, in one of his excellent pamphlets, and there is certainly no better medium to accomplish this end lan the protection, of our church, the 'extension of our holy faith, and this can be done only by uniting ourselves into one big organization, a "Catholic Federation." BISHOP MORRIS DESIRES ORGANIZATION. Our beloved Right Rev. Bishop, John B. Morris, D. D., has given his hearty approval to this undertaking and stated to the visiting delegation in sub- stance as follows: "l ,your Bishop, strongly believe in organization. Everybody organizes, why not we ? There is nothing that would please me more than the accom- plishment of a Catholic Federation in my diocese." Therefore let us get together, heed the words of our beloved Bishop and support him in his task as defender of our holy church.

It is so harsh and inhuman that it never suc- ceeds in reforming the offenders. Out- side agencies are trying to do here what the prison authorities should accomplish. A society for the aid of Catholic discharged female nrisoners seeks to restart girls, who have un- dergone terms o imprisonment as self-supporting and respectable mem- bers of the community. It is urged by members of this society, which includes Catholic judges and priests, that reformation is far better than punishment. They plead also for more ameliorative treatment of Irisn prisoners generally, and a complete reconstruction of prison conditions.

These are the helping hands and hearts, that will make beautiful the House of the Lord, and give to our small con- greggtion an impetus toward a real Catholic life and practice. Rev. Father Metz accompanied by Chas. A. Phelan, Jr., went to Norfolk, Baxter county, after the Mass here last Sunday. It called for an auto trip to Bergman on. the White River Div. of the Me. Pac. then by rail down the line to Norfoll Father Metz was on a visitation of a few Catholic families in that section. They returned to Harrison on Monday. Our new altar anxiously expected for Dedication Day, finally arrived and was in position for the Mass on 'Sunday 13th. Its lines and decora- tions make it the central feature of our new chapel. Chas. A. Phelan, Jr., is a very ac- tive agent for the Guardian in Har- rison. He sent in eight names this week to be listed as regular subscrib- ers, and while intent on a livestock proposition finds time to drnm up Guardiar subscriptions, and intends to do so until the promise to Bishop Morris is fulfilled--a Guardian in every Catholic home. ----O'TA RT.

RELIGIOUS BIAS IN ACTOR'S ELECTION ( By N. C. W. C. News Service.) New York, June 21.--Charges that he is a. Catholic and a Sinn Feiner are declared by Wilton Lackaye, American actor,, to have been used against him by certain elements who opposed his election as president of the Actors' Equity Association, ac- cording to 'Variety," a New York theatrical magazine. s--apparently "]ce"- feared in the election by the ticket headed by John Emerson, but the format's friends are urging him ro take the matter into court in order to test the legality of the alleged un- just tactics by which he was de- feated. A certain pro-English element among the actors is charged with having agitated the Catholic and Irish against Lackaye, according to "Va- rietY," an organ of the profession. In discussing the grounds on whiel lie alleged the opposition to his elec- tion was based, Laekaye declared: "I am first and last an American. I am a Catholic. I wish I were a be"- ter one. As regards the claim that I favor Irish freedom, I believe the peace "council declared for the self- determination of small nations. I agree with our government. I don't think we should be selfish with free- dom. If we are honest and generdus, we ought to want everybody to have it."  TREASURE.

Rome, June 14.The 0sservatore Romano ha published an authorized note denying the published rumors that Balfour's recent visit to the Pope was concerned with the possible entry of the Holy See into the League of Nations or with the political condi- tions in Ireland. One London eom'espondent had even asserted that the Pope had requested admission into the league, and, m return for Balfour's promise of help, undertook to use the influence of the Holy See towards obtaining peace in} Ireland. The 0sservatore declares definitely that neither the entry of the Holy See into the league, nor Irish political affairs 6rmed the subject of the con- verstion; and, in view of the persist- ent false rumors, an official statement is regarded as necessary. As regards Ireland, it is pointed out that the Holy See does not inter- fere with purely politictl matters, and Was not in any way connectedwith the political demonstratons that took place during the week of the beatiti- cation of Oliver Plunket. The Osservatore note, it is declared, must not be taken as indicating hos- tility of the Holy See to a union of nations. The Pope is greatly in(cr- ested in the project, its basic' idea hving bee first put forth in his own peace note. But, on other, hand, the Vatican would never consider asking for admission to the League of Na- tions. Its consistent policy is to await a formal invitation• It never refuses to help in any worthy project, pro- vided, its action nmy be founded on Conditions, which make patronage or co-operation possible. An instance of this has occurred in the Fund for the Relief. of the Children of Central Europe, wich the patronage of the Holy See has lifted from an ordinary beneficent undertaking to a world event of universal Christian import- ance. PARIS CABLE. (N. C. W. C. Special Cable.) Paris, June 14.--Imposing ceremo- nies in Notre Dame Cathedral on June 10 honored the memory of Paul Tchen a young Chinese Seminarian, who gave his llfe for his faith. Cardinal Araette presided. There were present a thousand children, members of the l Holy Childhood Society, and a depu-i tation of Chinese Catholic students. Paul Tchen was abandoned by his parents and. became a ward of the Holy Chdhood Soci,ety.' Later he entered the seminary. He was long tortured and finally beheaded for his faith. Monsignor Raynaud Vical Apostolic ofTehkiang, China/ since 1884, de- livered a sermon at Notre. Dame, tak- ing for his subject the work of the Holy Childhood Society, which he said he bad saved ten million children every year since its foundation, and gathered and baptized twenty-three million children. Joan of Arc Honored. Great religious, military and civil festivities were held in honor of Joan of Arc yesterday (Sunday) at Rouen the city wherein she was tortured. The French Government was officially represented by M. Bignon secretary of the State Mercantile Marine, who assisted at solemn high Mass at the Cathedral. Cardinal Dubois presided. There were numerous bishops present. Detachments of British and Belgian troops were on hand with bands. All nators and deputies of Alsace- Lot, raine atfended. LONDON CABLE. (N. C. W. C. Special Cable.) London, June 14.--The return of Cardirml Legue from Rome has been followed by several sensational news- paper stories to the effect that he bears an important communication from the Pope regarding the Irish question. These reports are discred- ited in Catholic circles., especially in view-of today's advicb from Rome to the effect that the Osservam Romano has dnied that the Pope had any conversation with Balfour relative to Ireland. Cardina} Lague has made no statement. The rumor is the suF- ect of considerable gossip at West- minster. Blessed Oliver Celebration. Cardinal Logue, it is hopeff, will take art in the Oliver Plunket cele- bra'tion here next Thursday, when all the English and Welsh bishops will assist at the pontifical Mass to be celebrated by the Bishop of Plymouth and when the relics of the martyr will be venerated.

PAGE TtIREE Knights of Columbus Society Activities OFFICIAL NOTES. • Little Rock Council No. 812. Routine matters were quickly dis- posed of at the regular meeting on last Tuesday night. It "was a ver" warm night and gave excuse to many for not appearing at what proved to be a very pleasant gathering. Bro- ther Gilmore, Council Lecturer, pr- vi(le(l the pleasure, by succeeding to date His Honor Mayor Brickhouse for a short talk to the council members. After the regular meeting was ad- the rostrum by Rt. Ray. Monsignor Tobin, Grand Knight John F. Healey, Dist. Deputy Florence Donahue and Icturer Gee. Gilmore. Mayor Briekhouse Speaks. Introduced by Bro. Gilmore, His Honor fell right into a heart to heart, man to man talk on chaacter build- ing. With admirable simple phras- ing he enunciated the impelling principles that made a man good for himself, for. others, for country and for religion. His Honor placed special .stress on the virtue of love as between fellow men being the essential condition for the peace of mind and heart that alone brings true hapiness- He said that he always •found the best men to be those who so loved their neigh- bors as to find even some little good even in the most of them. Personally he strived not to allow ill will or a grouch to hold hm ag%inst any man. He was but human, had his temper at times, but he always fought against holding it for any man, no matter how serious the mutual contention might have been. He could recall men who seemed to spend their lives in helping other.. He only wished that memory of him might be so cher- ished by those whom he could help, even as he knew of memories cherish- ed by many when a real good man passed away. He alluded to'the late. Judge Kavanaugh. His Henor held this good man up as a model of he citizens who was quietly but frequent- ly helping his fellow men. His death and funeral brought out the manifes- tation of the grateful love and the esteem he was held in by all, and especially by those whom he had quietly helped to lead happier lives.= He' never saw so many flowers on a man's grove. They were but the ex- pressions of the love of men and wo- men for that man who made 'their world brighter. We may all do so much with loving kindness. We feel so 'much better ourselves when we can go along the street, bearing ill will to no man, and far better when we do some good, out of love, to all men. It is but the gos- pel of The Master, Christ Himself that of doing unto Others as you would they did unto you. / He knew the Knighth of Columbus was an organization chartered to love their fello@ men. All good organi- zations held this love, if net, then weue they dangerous. We need love bearing men and organizations. Our country now must reconstruct on the lines of fellowship, loving fmllowship. Every man must work for happiness. It is life's work for all of us. We must no% dispair but take it when it comes and try to be satisfied with what we have. Full satisfaction will never be ours, but if we live our lives according to the Gospel of Love, this world will be happier for us, and we shall make it happier for others. His Honor was glad to be living in these days of reconstructio To see the big things men are doing and the more he sees, the more is he minded that only in unity of love, God's love, man to man, man for man, can suc- cess be attained. Vote of Thanks. ..... " .... Before his imperative ariy deart- ure, His Honor was given a hearty vote of thanks and the appciation of his manly Christian expressions were for those present voiced in a few words by Rt. Rev. Monsignor Tobin. Regular meetings once a month. during July and August. Sunday, June 27, wil find but very few Knights in Little Rock. It is to be an anticipated Fourth Of July out- ing with the racket staged at Pine Bluff, where a large class is to be in- itiated. "We are coming," Bro.
