Following I the recent announcement of President Duncan of the Tulsa Board of Educa- tion that it is tbe policy of the board not to employ Catholics in the school% an editorial (lenunciation of the intol- i erant ignorance embodied in this pol- icy coupled with expressions of ap- preciation of the value of private pri- mary schools, has been printed in the Tulsa Worhl. The editorial is signed by T. A. Latta, editor-in-chief of the Worhl, a Presbyterian. Mr. Latta summarizes the opmmn of the World regarding the actmn of the board of education hy asking, "Couhl there be anything more unconstitutional in spirit, more absurd in fact ?" Discussing the state of mind which advocates such discrimination against Catholic citizens, Mr. Latta writes ol the latter: "They pay an enormous troportion of the uxes necessary to maintain the put)lie schools. They send their I chihlren to the public schools--after that age when their religious an, spiritual foundations have been laid. Why such unconstituti(mal pleas ? Be- cause in such petty minds there is a lamentable lack of knowledge con- cerning the true genres of our political institutionsl That and nothing more. "But if I must patronize the public schools, then my sense of decency and constitutionalism forbids me from asking that the public schools, main- tained alike by Protestant, Catholic and Jew--and even Buddhist anti rep- resentatives of the various cult of the FarEast be turned to any such serv- ice." The basis for the whole controversy centering around the tiublie school system, Mr. Latta declares, is that "various agencies and movements and HECKLING SPEAKERS 18 PRIESTS IN (By N. C. W C.

Monsignor Convert is the third sac- eently a pilgrimage from now, after the Canonization, we will have from 100,000 to 200,000 pil- grims."

Washington, July 13."How :far ,have the recommendations of Pope Leo's Encyclical on the Condition of Labor been applied in the United States" is the questiow around which probably will center the program of next year's meeting of the Ca(hell : Conference on Industrial ,Problems. Announcement to this effect has been made through the office of the Rev. R. A. McGowan, national secretary of the Conference.

But I wouhl take precisely the same position in re- spect to a 'resbyterian, a Methodist, or an Episcopalian, or any other sect.
