The un- doubted intention at first was to give it a Protestant complexion. But the Catholics very soon asserted their rights. Although in theory the sys- tem was undenominational, in pr,c- tice it became denominational. The "managers" (local controllers) of the schools, were and are clergymen. This means that in all areas where CaLho-] lies are in a majority the parish priest 1 . s the manager, while in. (hstrcts] where Protestants are in a majority,] the local parson is the manager. In urban places where the minorJ W i' numerous, it has schools managed by l its own clergy. Thus ill Belfast there are primary schools managed by prmsts, and in Dublin and Cork there are schools managed by parsons. [ Freedom of Schools Irrespective of its religion, a child can atteml any school. If it does not profess the same faith as the scnoo] it will withdraw durirjg the religious instruction, in Catholic schools all the teachers are Catholics, and in Protestant schools all are Protestants. The lesson in religious instruction is given by the teachers, and at all times the clergymen have access to the schools. In addition, there is for the Catholic schools a Diocesan inspect- or. He is a special Catholic clergy- man appointed by the Bishop. His duty is to visit every Catholic pri- mary school in the diocese annually, examine the children in Christian doc- trine, and submit to the Bishop a re- port on the examinations. While he is not in any kense a State official, the government department responsi- ble for education takes cognizance of iis reports. Schools Open to All As indicated above, for secular in- struction the schools are open to the children of every denomination. In the greater part of the South and West Protestants are so few (espe- cially in rural districts) that there are not sufficient children of their per- .suasion to warrant the provision of schools for them. In these places the Protestant cMhlren attend the Catho- lic schools but absent themselves dur- ing the interval devoted to religious instruction, if in any instance Cath- olic children have to attend a school under Protestant mauagement and Protestant teachers, they also absent themselves t'rom the religmus instruc- tion. in this way the rights and wish- es of parents are upheld.

Milliken, director of the Norman Bridge Lal)oratory of lhysics, at l'asadena, Cal. The purpose of the statertkent ' ac- cording to a suplementary explmm- tion, is "to assist ill correcting two er- roneous impressions that seem to be current among certain groups of per- sons. The iirsL is that religion today stands for medieval theology, the sec- ond that science is materialistic and irreligious.,, The statement itself reads as fol- lows: "We, the undersigned, deeply regret that in recent controversies there has been a tendency to present science and religion as Irreconcilable and antago- nist'ic domains of thought, for, in fact, they meet distinct human needs, and in the rounding ou0 of human life they supplement rather than displace or op- pose each other. "The purpose o/ science is to de- velop, without prejudice or precon- ception of any kind, a knowledge of the facts, the laws and the processes of nature. The even more important wholly consonant with the highest ideals of religion, when it represents HiYa as revealing Himself through countless ages in the development of the earth as an abode for men, and in the age-long inbreathing of life into its onstituent matter, cuhninating with man with his spiritual nature and all his God-like qualities." The statement has aroused great attention in scientific circles. RELIGION AND SCIENCE i NOT IN CONFLICT, SAY t 40 LEADINGArdERICAIqS] ( By N. C. W. C News Servic, c.)

MAI{0NEY bell of Lick Observatory; Prof. Henry Fairfield Osborn, ,president of the WANTED: SOME MORE COURAGEOUS CA?HOL!CS Once there was an editor of a daily paper who gave orders to the report- ere and copy readers that the word "pronfinent" must be avoided when printing reports of wlmt men say or do. He said that he hated the phrase "prolninent man," because it was used so often; nearly everybody mentioned in newspapers was I'ettinff to be re- ferred to as lromment. It is a good old word, nevertheless; but that edi- tor's state of mind is not hard to un- derstand. We know editors of C-tth- tion paper as "a prominent Catholic" citizen, an innocent designation enough olic papers who don't like the expres- sion "prominent Catholic," or its plu- ral. Noah Webster's definition of "prominent" is "standing out, project- ing." To be prominent, then, means to stand out. or stick out, beyond the surface, where one can be seen, if net heard. Sometimes a politician is "in- cillentally" referred to jn an opposi- but one that may decide some voteys to vote for the other fellow, or for the Catholic, as the case may be." Again, the readers of Catholic pa- pers who are not in the prominent class, may [)e inclined to say unchar- table things when they think or feel that a man is called a "prominent Catholic" chiefly, if not solely, as a result of bis being prominent in busi- ness, in social life; because he is rich, rather than because he is very active in Catholic affairs, such as charitable undertakings. And editors aim to avoid displeasing any reader, even the humblest and least prominent. We often hear that our Church needs, in this country, lay leaders. They are not wanted to lead in poli- tics, in commercial or industrial en- terpri:es, nor yet in social life. They are needed and desired to lead in Catholic action and in Catholic think- ins; that is to say, in helping lo give practical application of the truths and principles of our Catholic Christianity to the everyday 'affairs and business of life in this country. They are not so much needed for PRIN TING OFFICE SUPPLIES DESKS Our printing plant is very complete, automatic feeding presses doing finest of work.
