Happy indeed we should have been to be present at the ononization of Joan of Arc but how we should have preferred to be in just the violet of 1909 if the venerated Pontiff who conferred on us the fullness of the priesthood could have lived to sit to- "day in the Chair of Peter. It is a happiness to us to recall the memory of that ceremony for surely it must move the hearts of all present here today. And it moves us the more in the certainty that v'e feel that Plus X, though taken from the sight of men, is present with us on this day that surely he foresaw when the first news was brought to him of the miracles wrought at the intercession of Joan of Are aready proclaimed Blessed. Confirms History. "But after paying 'the tribute of recollection to bur Predecessor we cannot but express the great joy we feel that it has been granted us to crown Joan of Are with the glory of the Saints. .In carrying out thls high office We know that we. have been pViviqged to do something which goes straight home to the hearts of our beloved children of France. For long centuries their de- votion to Joan of Arc has been such that they have wished her name to be held in honor and loved among all the peoples. So grateful were theY l for all the good she brought hor i country that they have made every child in every little village know her great story. How, then, could tha story be better carried to the confines of the earth than by a Degree of Canonization? What more eloquent more universal proclamation of her merits could there be than the Decree ell Sanctication which no single corner of the earth can fail to hear? From today on for children who from simple curiosity want to know some detail of the life of Joan, the answer of the French mother is ready in two words: "She is a Saint." Joan is a Saint; and we can now think bf no failing in the Maid of Domremy, w think instead of every height and glory of virtue. That is the sublime eloquence of a Degree of Canoniza- tion which not only confirms the re- searches of historians but gives them greater light than could be brought by all the disquisitions of the "learned, stam.pivg them with that surety Of truth and universality of doctrine which the most learned word and the closest study here on earth cannot claim. So it is no surprise,to us that the Canonization of Joan of Arc has brought to Rome so great a number of pilgrims despite the length of the journey and the difficulties of the present times. / Teacheg Solemn Lesson. "Thel Decree oi* Canonization of Joan of Arc is not the production of an academy of history of science; it must never be forgotten that it is the fruit of the magisterium of the Church. For that reason we are sure that the many pilgrims present in Rome on the memorable occasion will only see the Decree in the honor pain to one of the greatest of their people but will think, of the solemn lesson to be learned from it, which ia in the intention of the Church for the up. lifting to 'moral perfection of her children. And if the French are the first to, profit by it it will be for the happiness of all friends of France, for tan figure of Joan of Are is such that it cannot,be understood without the light of the supernatural.

"No need to say more to point out the lesson in the moral order that toe Church has just given with the De - cree of Canonization of Joan of Are.

This hope we express in special manner for our beloved children of France, for unless they observe this lesson they can never at- tain that happiness which we ardent- ly desire for them, and because we believe that Saint Joan of Arc her- self in Heaven desires above all things that her example may draw her people to good. ; Happiness of France. ' "How often on the lips of the French people who have come to us these days has been the hope and prayer that the celebration of the canonization of Joan of Are may help to increase the glory, and the happi- ness of France.

By HENRY SOblERVILLE (Written exclusively for London, June 12.In the year be fore the Great War, when industrial struggles in England were almost as menacing as they have been since the armistice, a leading review published a]sensational article entitled: "The Brains Behind the Labor Umest." The article showed how largely the leadership of the most aggressive ele- ments in the labor movement had leen secured by comparatively young  men who had a course of training either at Ruskin College, Oxford, or the Central Labor in London. What was true in 1913, was true in South Wales in 1915, for according to government commissioners, the war strikes in that troublous area were a great extent fomented by col- lege-trained labor leaders. Stm, more recently, we had a national rail- my strike in this country that brought us to the brink of civil war. The power of the men turned out from the labor colleges was admitted by the London Times in an editorial entitled: "The Wider Aspects of the Strike." The Times editor said: Collegia.us Are Labor Loaders. "The influential men (it the ra¢lical labor movement) are mid- die-class, intellectuals and work- men who have been through one or other of the labor colleges, where they have imbibed theo- ries about the social and industr- ial order which seem to them per- . fectly true and wise because they do not know enough to detect the fallacies. These men, who are young, are most numerous among the railwaymen and miners, and this is the chief reason why those industries are "the special, though not the only hot-beds of disorder• The young college- trained men, by virtue of their superior intelligence and intellec- tual training, secure an influence in the trade unions out of all proportion to their numbers." This quotation from the Times shows how seriously that newspaper, which is very well-informed if it is not quite impartial, regards the in- fluence of the labor colleges. But it must in fairness be added, that the influence of the college men in the labor movement is not always or even generally with the extremists. Some of the labor leaders who have been the greatest restraining influ- ences have bfen college men. The fact seems to be that the men from the labor colleges are securing leader- ship in the labor movement in virtue of their superior intellectual training, whether they be extremists, as some of them are, or @Aether they be mod- erates. Moreover, a man is often alled an extremist by the capital- istic newspapers when he really , is most conservative and when he has to fight might and main against the hotbeds in labor unions. For example, Frank Hedges, secre- tary of the niners' federation, - is often held up as an example of the extremist leader trained by a labor college• Hodge is a young man who got one of the highest ad most powerful positions in the labor move- meat before he was thirty years of age and there is no doubt,he owes his success to the training he got at Ruskin Cllege. But he is no ex- tremist. On the contrary, his great power'has steadily been used to mod- erate the demands of the miners and to stop vie!eat and hasty action. Of course he is  militant advocate of the claims of labor, and le is resolute in advan'ing the cause of the miners. As chief leader of the miners he is th6ught to, be*'extreme' by the 'mine owners, but if he stepped out the mine owners would find that a whip had been xchange4 for a scorpion. The point to be emphasize is not "that the labor colleges are turning out revolutionaries, but that they ar turning out leadem. Education tells in the labor movement as elsewhere. Knvledge Is power. The labor 'col- leges are still very young institutions. They have a comparatively smart number of students and the students ae still young men. Nevertheless, a considetble proportion of the labor • ' • I members of Parhament and presz- dent of labor unions and other lead- ing men ,in' the qabor movement are marl who hmfe come from these cm- leges. The Labor Colleges. There are only two labor colleges of importance and with years of standing. During the last couple 'of years four or five small labor col- leges have been started in different parts of the €ountw, and though.tAle 'sh0w theeInCreasing value. ;aehed by the labor movement to hese' in- N. C. W. C. News Service) stitutions we need nat speak of them in detail. The two principal colleges are Ruskin Colege, Oxford, and the are Ruskin College, Oxford, and the though these two colleges h.ave much in common they are also very dif- ferent from each other and are, as a :matter of fact, bitter rivals and enemies• Ruskin College was stmed twenty years ago, not by labor movement, but by a wealthy American name( Mr. Vrooman. The founder's idea was not the training of labor leaders, but the giving to manual workers the opportunity of acquiring Oxford cul ture so as to brighten their own lives and the lives of their fellows when they went back to work at their old occupatidns. However the college de- veloped on unintended lines. The men who came were more anxious to learn about economics and polities I titan about art and poetry. Their chief aspirations were not for liberal culture, but for social reforms and the "emancipation of labor." / Disruptive Teaching of an AlOState. Dennis Hird became principal of the college. Hird had been a prot- estant clergyman but renounced Christianity and became an apostle of everything disruptive. The men who studied under him left the college ranting, class-conscious Marxian Soc- ialists and trained agitators. So scana- alous did things become that the gov- ernors of the college forced the re- signation of Hird. There was an acute crisis and the students, who were under Hird's influence, and for the most part favored him, went "on strike" by refusing to attend any lec- tures except those of Hird. The strikers were expelled. The college was reorganized and a new principal appointed and the governing body be- came exclusively representative of labor organizations, though this gov- erning body was, in the true sense of the words, moderate and conservative. Hird and the striking students start- ed a new institution; the Central Imbor College, in London, receiving the support of two or three labor unions, but the majority of the labor unions supported the reorganized Ruskin College. Ruskin College taught economics and political science but proceeded very much along the orthodox lines of Oxford University and the students wrote the university examinations in these subjects. The Central Labor College, on the other hand, fulminated against orthodox economfcs as being "capitalistic" and gave its own men only the pure milk of Marx. It denounced Ruskin Col- lege as having been "hobbled" by the university, and thus bythe capital- istic interests. The Central Ibor College never tires of proclaiming its own object to be the training or revo- lutionary leaders.for the class war; it is rigidly Marxian. The Ruskin College men have a broader education and tey are none the worse labor leaders for that• On the. whole the Ruskin College graduates, though thef have been a power in labor move- ment, have been a power making for sane and ordered progres§. he Central Labor College men have been rather powerful for mischief• Conditions Catholics Must Meet. For Catholics, however, the main point of interest is the demonstrated fact that labor colleges are the train- ing grounds of the labor leaders. Leadership in the labor movement goes to the men who are educated and trained and these men are able to impress their principles, whether they be conservative or radical, on the rank and file. It is, evident that unless we have our share of trained and educated Catholic workingmen we shall not share in the lead- ership of labor. Yet the great bulk of our Catholic people in this country are working people and in social and political matters their in- terests and sympathies are largely with labor. If, therefore, we are to have any part in labor's leadership, we must have our Catholic men edu- cated. Some of them are being e]u- coted at the present labor colleges. This is not necessarily an intolerable position, but it is not an ideal one. Social questions are to a great ex- tent moral ,questions and distinctive Catholic principles arc involed. A Catholic social education is needed for our Catholic worlingmen leaders. This education is given by the study cir61es that exist all over the country; it will be given by the Summer School now in session at Oxford, and it will be given in its greatest completeness in a Catholic labor college.
