.PAGE EIGHT  THE GUARDIAN, SATURDAY, JULY 16, 1921• q  i I ... i CATHOLIC WORKERS AMONG IMMIGRANTS FOIL EViL PLOTTERS MAKE IT I-0000SS00BL00 FOR STRANGERS TO ENTICE UN- WARY GIRLS. (Y . c. w. c. sws aEavxc) Boston, June 30.A few days ago a 'baggage handler at one of the great steamship docks in Boston rushed up to one of the Catholic Immigrant Welfare workers who was on hand to serve the horde of new arrivals in the United States. "There's a girl down at the end of the dock you bught to talk with," said the man. "She look's like an Italian. She's talking with a man. Perhaps everything's all right, but something seems to tell me it isn't. Anyway, I'd be better satisfied if you will take a loqk." "Eae Catholic Immigrant service rep- resentative immediately called an Italian fellow-worker and went to in- vestigate. -Sure enough, they found the girl • there, and the man with her. The girl couldn't peak a word of English. The man explained  that he had come down to meet her at the solicitation of one of her friends. The representatives of the archdio- cesan Immigrant Welfare Depart1 ment, organized by orders of Cardinal O'Connell several months ago, took "' the girl aside arid questioned her. She said that she did. not know the man, but that he suggested that she go with him to his room until her fiends came for her. And the man! who said he had been sent to meet the girl, when closely questioned admitted that he did not know h e name. Evidently he had planned to entice her away. Now, this is not an imaginary case. It really happened. Perhaps it is an extreme case---but such things occur from time to time. How Some Lose Their Faith. Here is another thing that has hap- pened more than once in the past: Through certain channels a young girl in Italy or some other European country or her parents, will enter into correspondence with a man on this ide of the water, Object--matri- mony. In due course tile/passage money is sent back to the old country, the girl sails, and is met on the dock by her affianced husband. Then the man, "who from the first had either claimed to be, or had been assumed to be a Catholic, is married by a justice or perhaps by a Protest- ant clergyman, The girl is taken to her new home, fails to establish con- nection with the Catholic church in her city, and eventually may be lost to the faith. Sometimes it happens that the girl is forced into a marriage against her will. There are, in fact, all Sorts of complications. It is a fact that many persons who have spent their whole lives within eight of the very wharves where the immigrant-stream from Europe first touches our shores have little or no conception of the many problems • which the new arrivals face when they tep ashore. But there are problems, big ones-- and it is to prevent unpleasant tan- gles and to straighten out those that do occur, that Catholic organizations are everywhere prepaEfig [hemselves. The Boston organization, which is working hand in han.d with the Immi- grant, Department of the National Catholic Welfare Council, is fully equipped for its work. It is operad as a part of the  archdiocesan Charit- able Bureau, of which Rev. Michael J. Scanlan, S. T. L•, is director. ' Directly in Charge of the Immigra- tion Welfare Department is Miss Mary Alma Cotter, a graduate of Radcliffe College, Cambridge,/who has had a wide experience in general so- cial welfare wor. She was the gen- .eral secretary and first worker of the SoeiaiService League of Lowell, Mass., and executive secretary of the , Catholic Socilervice Bureau. of New Haven.  / When a liner arrives at" quarantine news is quickly flash'ed tthe Catho- lic Immigratioh office of the nation- ality of the passengers, and workers epeaking the languages of the new- comers are rushed tothe pidr. The department already has in its employ, Italian, Polish, Portugese, Syran, Ger- man and French-speaking officials. At the pier, where the archdiocesan representatives are easily distinguish- able by brassards of red and white, bearing blue letters C. I.

Otherwise, the marriage would have to take place on the pier. But the C. I.

It is expected that the attendance at this convention will be the largest in thehistory of the annual gatherings of the Central Society. Inquiries re- garding accommodations, and other information reachi the local com- mittees show that the number of del- egates and visitors will be unpreced- seeing that Catholic young women ar-[ented.

Good Follow Up Work. The Boston organization is doing an exceptionally valuable work in its fol- low-up. In many cases--and always in the case of newly-married couples-- I the addresses to which the immigrants l are going are obtained. Then the pas- tor of the nearest church is notified• I Pastors of foreign-speaking parish- es all over the country are fully re- sponding to this effort on the part of the C. I. W. department to lnk the immigrant up with the church in his new home. In many cases the pastors themselves have called and welcomed the newcomers to America. Thus the immigrant  is brought at once int9 touch with the Church. If, in the ci[y or town to which the immigrant is going, there is no parish in which the persot's native tongue is commonly spoken, some lOcal Catholic organiza- tion or some dependable person is no- tiffed. By direction of the Cardinal an ad- visory council of the" following pas- tors of the diocese has just been ap- pointed: Rev. Cyprian Adamski, O• M. C., Polish; Rev. Bernard G. Cohausz, S.

IUBLIC SCHOOL / IS TO BE NAMED FOR POET PRIEST Richmond, Va., July 6.--One of the new public schools of Richmond may be named in memory of Father John Bannister Tabb, the post-uriest who, through yeas of blindness, wrote verse that has immortalized him. Father Tabb was born at "The For- est" near Richmond, March 22, 1845, and was descended from'e fndst dis- tinguished families of'Virginia, • At the outbreak of the Civil War, young Tabb enlisted in the "Confeder- age navy and served until taken cap- tive in June, 1864. He was confined in, the " bull pen" at Point Lookout an(} there made the acquaintance' of Sid- ney Lanier, "the gentle singer of the Southland." Due to his defective vis- ion, John Bannister Tabb had to quit his studies in his youth and for some years "devoted himself to music. He was a teacher of music in St. Paul's church, Balmore, when he embraced the Catholic faith in 1882. He was or- dained to the priesthood in 1884. Richmord and all Virginia are roud of Father Tabb and it is !ikely that the proposal to give one f the ndw schools his name will not meet with successful opposition.

C., July ll.--Com- munists and Socialists are now either regretting their former priaise of the Bolshevik government, or are being hard put to explain the course it has taken.' Many of them are saying that the new enactments are a strategic re- treat, but the fact remains that while Communists are still in power in Rus- AROUND THE HOUSE Mix ingredients for ginger cookies with cold coffee instead of water.

Bake Washington pies this This failure was due first of all to the way. It is also easier to handle. They desire of the farmers to own their own i , , , land, and their resmtance from the be- !ginning to agricultural communism. Receritiy the Soviet rulers have found it necessary to depart still farther from common owners]ip until now much the smaller part of the national productive and distributive system is owned by the government. Recently an American writer friend- ly to the Soviets, under the title "Rus- sia's Strategic Retreat," published an apologetic article on the Bolshevik changes. He summarizes them as fol- never stick or burn. If you want a good "Brown Betty" there is nothing better than the spider.

To. this should be added personal own- ership of farm lands by the peasants. As a result, about' all that is owned in common is a few large basic indus- tries and even here exceptions are made for capitalistic concessions un- I !er theregulation of the government. I Ihe writer takes comfort in thel thought that confirmed Socialists are still at tl%e helm of government, and that they will use energetically all the powers of the government to fur- ther the Socialist ideal. But that this is a definite retreat from the Socialist state goes without saying. Russia is predominantly an agricultural country, and if the farm- ers own their land and have the right of disp6sing as they see fit, either through cooperative organizations or privately, of their products over and above a tax in kind, then private own- ership in this the greatest field of Russian life is still in the saddle. Home manufacturies .. occupy a" very large place in Russian life on account of the long, snowbound inters, and the general backwardness of Russian manufactury. If-these" are exempt from the commpnist power and the products can be marketed through cooperative organizations or person- ally, then still another enormous part of Russian economic life is under the rule of • personal ownership. The wholesale and retail distribution of another large part of the dommodities is being carried on by cooperative so- cieties which are, except in turner matters, to be free and independent of the government• Small industry is to be allowed free development: The remarkable part of these new regulations, which the Soviet power insists are temporary and which they will try to make temporary, is that they provide for a wide extension of personal ownership and for coopera- tive societies'. A small part of large industry .is to be farmed out in the form of foreign capitalist concessions under state eontreJ, and the rerflain- ing part is to be owned by the gov- ernment and managed by it through representatives. This is far from a Socialist society. r With the complete power in their own hands, confirmed and intelligent leaders of'a compact and ealous com- rhunist party have now given up, at least for a long time, the hope of es- tablishing a Socialist eommonwealth. But instead of restoring capitalist property, in the sense of private own- ership held predominantly by the few, they are distributing property more widely and are letting farmers, labor, and consumers' cooperative societies of labor, farmers, and consumers anti small industry go their own way. There remains still the danger that since confirmed Socialists are in pow- er, they will doll they can, though gradually, to break down at a later date the system of wide private own- ership and cooperative societies which they are now helping to build up.
