C. W. C. News Service) Washington.The great virility of the Catholic school system in the United Staten is strikingly portray- ed against a background of deter- ruination and sacrifice in a survey conducted by the N. C. W. C. depart- ment of education here. Reports received to date from 71 archdioceses and dioceses, through- out the country show that in 54 of these not a single Catholic educa- tional institution of any kind was closed during the last year. And, educators point out, the scholastic year just closesd was perhaps the hardest these institutions have been called upon to weather, not only be- cause it saw a steady deepening of the depression but also because it held the accumulated bad effects of the financial and economic crisis that began back in 1929. In some dioceses it was possible not only to stave off the closing of schools, but alsa to open new educa- tional institutions. In some of the 17 Sees that re- ported closings of any kind, the shutting down of one school was off- set by the opening of another. In still others, where there were clos- ings that were ot offset, the ac- tion was taken not as the abondon. ment of a project in the face of bad times, but as the exercise of foresight which, seeking better school admin. istration would have dictated the clos- ing even in days of prosperity. Only 29 Schools Close A total of only 29 schools were closed in the 17 Sees, and these closing affected only 2,848 pupils out of the 1,942,945 that were attend- ing elementary and secondary schools in all the archdioceses and dioceses DR.

The National .Vluseum in Dublin had first claim to anything discovered in Free State oerritory. "I should also like,' 'he said, "to mention the co-operation which we got last year in our invcst]gatmns. In an interview with the Irish Press, Dr. IIcncken said: "On the archeological maps of Western Eu- rope, Ireland is little known and it is our hope that we may fill in many to contribute something to the knowl- edge of h'ish pre-history." The expedition to Ireland last year, he said, created enormous interest in America. The daily newspapers car- ied long reports of the work, and when the members returned to Amer- ica, they were asked all sorts of questions about their discoveries. Among plades visited will be pre- historic graves near TuRn, County Galway, and a dolmen in County Clare.
