There is reason to believe that Great Britain is trying to avoid a poli- cy which would antagonize the United States, Therefore it is probable that there will be a general understanding regarding the British and Japanese policy in the Far tast and,, more specifically,, regarding" the: BriHsh- . Japanese alliance, before the United :l:.:!:. ,.,States considers .the Pacific question :i: settled:. ; So lng "as the present uncertain " 'take up very seriously the disarma- ment problem. Disarmament Stself in- volves the adjustment of many trou- blesome details but these are not so difficult as the intricacies of interna- tional politics which stand in its Way. "Nevertheless the movement for dis- armament is gaining impetus, accord- ing to all indications in Washington. There is a pronounced opinion among members of both houses of Congress that even if no international agree- ment is reached concerning a reduc- tion in naval expenditures the United States should take the initiative by halting its own building program. It is doubtful that" such a course will be followed with the approval of the ad- , ministration. Very definite su'gges- t-ions have come both from Great,Bri - lain and Japan that a conference on disarnament would be welcomed. There is no doubt that popular senti-, ment in both of those countries is strongly in favor of a reduction of the mifitary and naval burden Much, therefore, will l&pend upon the out- come of the negotiations now in'prog- ress in London the successful outcome of which will mean a decided step fo- ward in the attainment of actual peace. CHILD A CATHOLIC SUNDAY, PROTESTANT REST OF WEEK New Yark,,July ll.--Justice Mor- schauser, sitting a/t White Plainsl, has decreed thatqbyear-old Ruth Sullivan, for the time being, shall be instructed as a Protestant six days of the week and attend Mass on Sundays. This extraordinary decision was' -.rendered as the result of habeas cur-" pus proceedings brought by Elward Sullivan, the father of the child, to obtain the custody of Ruth. Mrs. 'Sul- "ivan, the mother of four sonas well 'as of the little girl, asserted' that when she was married to Sullivan she entered into an agreement with him under the terms of which any possi- ble sons  of ho union were to be- brought tp as Catholics and any daughters as Protestants. She told Justice Morschauser that Sullivan had failed to live up to his agreement with regard to his little dalter. The court promised to give a decision on Sullivan's application in September. In the meanwhile it authorized Mrs. Sullivan,to teach Protestant doctrine to the child during the week# but gave permission to the father o take her to the Catholic church on Sunday. % WELCOME FOR THE COMING KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS The first Wedk i August will be San Francisco's gaia..

DR. ERNST WINDHORST ! SERVICES AT PIER FOR HAS GOLDEN JUBILEE . SOLDIER KILLED IN 191 (BY N. C W. C NEWS SERVICE) Berlin, June 25.--Dr. Ernst Wind- horst, a nephew of the late.well known leader of the Center, has -.qt cole, brated his golden jubileo at gad-Itom- burg, where he is chaplain of the English Ladies' Institute and religious instructor in their boarding school. In 1868, Mgr. Windhorst followed the advice given him by his uncle, and entered the Metropolitan Seminary at Cincinnati, Ohio, and was ordained June 2, 1871, by Archbishop Jacob Wood, of Philadelphia. In 888 he was made a domestic prelate by Leo XIII and shortly afterwards was given an honorary degree of Doctor of Philos-" ophy by a Chicago College. On the day of his Golden Jubilee Mgr. Wind- horst held a Thanksgiving service, which was well attended, and" was shosCered with congratulations and telegrams from far and near. (BY N.

LLOYD GEORGE REBUKES CLERGY AND DISCOVERS OTHERS CAN CRITICISE Loud=, i :.e200 27.B f;'o'::Lrst of Celtic effervesence Premier Lloyd George appears to have told the cler- gy of the various Churches to mind their own.business, and to keep out of politics. The Prime Minister's rebuke if it were a rebuke, was administered at Portmadoc in Wales, where the General Assembly of the Calvinistic Methodists was in session. By the amount of applause that greeted the Premier's strictures it seems evident that the Calvinistic Methodists understobd the remarks to apply to others than their own devot- ed flock. What the Premier had in mind was some of the Bishops of the Church of England, who came out on the side of the coal miners, and other prelates of the Anglican Church who, in com- pany with other Protestant leaders, also came ouz on the side of Ireland. On Ireland and the miners, he said, the clergy should observe a discreet silence. On the matter of temperance, on the other hand, they had a right to interfere directly. This, however, is open to debate, since there is a rap- idly growing body of opinion that the parson ought not to stand between the working man and his beer. But the Prime Minister has stirred up a hornet's nest, and the relegation of Irish affairs to the :ealm of mat- ters not to be discussed by the clergy has "veen. sharply resented. Hardly had Mr. Lloyd George's words died away in the Welsh air than the clergy aroused themselves, and it seems that the ministers of the various churches have decided opinions as to what they may discuss and what they may not. Canon Barnes of Westminster, a liberal theologian who is-more given to explaining away than to making positive statements of fae, says "The Churches must condemn murder and outrage. The Prime Minister's claim to exclude from Christian censure the scandal of Irish misgovernment can- not be admitted. " Dr. Griffith Jones, who is the head of a Nonconformist theological college, demands full lib- erty to apply Christian principles in handling all social and political prob- lems. From other churchmen and re- ligious leaders it is clear that not only should the Churches have a voice when moral issues are involved but that they should speak fearlessly-- which, of course, they have not al- ways done. Up to the present no comment on the Premier's statement has appeared from Catholic sources. But the Catho- lic Bishops have spoken so fequently and with such clearness on the ques lion of Ireland, that there is no doubt what" the opinion of the matter is 'in Catqlic circles. tI think," says the Anglican'Bishop of St. Albans, "that the Churches ought to be deeply grateful to Mr. Lloyd George for so kindly allowing them still to interfere with the ques- tion of temperance." PAS!ON PLAY IS TO BE FILMED (BY N. C, w. 'C, NICWs iRV) , Freiburg-in-Breisgau, June 27. rhe community of 0berammergau has giverl permission to have the Passion Play filmed and a special performance will be given this summer on a "nat- ural stage" measuring 200 by 100 meters in Freiburg.

A SINGLE RULE FOR SUCCESS Much has been written on success; but I'find that there is one simple un- failing rule for it. Read the advice of the great and successful men, every- where, and you will not go far before you find this admonition: Save mon- ey! It runs through and is at the bottom of all that is recorded about success. ',As a matter of fact, it is the one rule necessary to success, for following it brings all the ethel" re- quirements. The man who saves will soon. become industrious, intelligent, alert--even if he was not so at first. ..... So, remember that the one single and fundmental rule for sueess is "save money." l I A Catholi00P.00or a j I Perpetual Mission--- | j Pope Leo XlIl j I "The Guardian" i n | [ every home---our Motto.

NIW8 BgBVICE) Dublin, June 27.--For the third time since the campaign of repression was started by the British Govern- ment the Irish Bishops have, as a body, expressed their views'on the situation in Ireland. In this first pro- nouncement they reminded British ministers that "the rule of the sword was not suited to a high spirited and sensitive people like the Irish race." The second statement of the Bishops, .sent to the Catholic Hie:irchy in all parts of the world, was an exposure of tim reprmals and other forms of cruelty practiced by the agents of the British Government in Ireland. Since then His Holiness, the Pope, has ex: pressed his horror of these methods and as a token of his sympathy with the Irish people in their sufferings has sent a contribution of $15,000 to the Irish White Cross Fund "- The Bishops' Statement. At a full meeting of the Irish Hier- archy just held at Maynooth under the presidency of Cardinal Logue, a state- ment was issued saying: "Amid the sorrows and troubles of these dreadful days it is a great con- solation o our people to know that they ean count now, as always, off the earnest and practical sympathy of our Holy Father, the Pope ..... We are all the more grateful that from the limited means at his com- mand he has sent the munificent gift of 200,000 lire to assuage the suffer- ings of an afflicted people. But it is not the material help, i'ortant though that is, which we prize most highly. More welcome and valuable to the heart of Ireland, to eonsole and comfort her is the frateFnI"tcon which has inspired and is visible in every line of the Papal letter, as well as the ardent desire expressed that the question of our international quar- rel should be settled in a sincere spirit of peace and reconciliation." The Bishops convey to the Pope the respectful gratitude of themselves and the Irish people for the Apostolic Let- ter. They procd to point out that the condition of Ireland "has now chal- lenged the attention and \\;aroused the indignation of all true lovers of lib- erty." They g on to show that the picture of Ireland transmitted by them last October to the world-wide Hierarch was, although horrifying in itself, but an inadequate represente- rs0 n of the indignities and Outrages to which the country had been sub- jected. Sinc/ then every horror has been intensified and "we are now threatened with even darker doings because our country,on spurn, as th6y rightly do, the sham settlement deVisby the British Government. In defiance of Ireland a special govern- ment has been given to one section of hdr people, remarkable at all times for intolerance, without the slightest po- vision to safeguard the victims of ever-recurring cruelty." This Parliament "is, they add, set up at a time when the campaign of ex- termination is in full blast and a pub- lie threat is uttered to leave the Cath- olic iainority at the mercy of Ulster's special constables. Conditions Necessary to Peace. legarding conditions o peace they lay down that: "Until repression ceases and tle right of Ireland to choose her own form of government is reeognized there is no prospect that peace will reign amongst us, or that the recon- ciliation which His Holiness so ardent- ly desires' will be accomplished." They appeal for contributibns for the White Cross Fund,. and finally they thank the American people es- pecially for their inexhaustible benev- olence. -.k i, ..' TO STOP SUNDAY PAPERS.
