Archbishop Gilmartin, of Tuam, has protested strongly against the cam- paign df testruction and the burning of Catholic property by the police of Tuam. His demand for inquiry to bring the culprits to justice has been refused by military commanders. The archbishop now urges the inhabitants to presmwe their fortitude in the face of shocking outrages, and says that their behavior has been typical of peace-loving Catholic people.

"The Irish cause has won Australia, where the Repub- lic was regarded as Ireland"s real gov- ernment," Msgr. Barry said. Speaking of education, Bishop Den- nis Hallinan of Limerick, states that it is dmngerous unless combining re- ligion and nationality. He condemned the intermediate system of education in Ireland as putting a premium on secular knowledge, while ignoring fez ligion and obliterating history, tradi- tions and interests. It lacked the moral tone needed to equip boys for practical life, he held. I-lenry Kraemer, later on Father Fin- workers, who have been hunted from tan, Vicar General of Little Rock and ............
