Father Flanagan told how 21 years ago he dreamed of estab- lishing such a project after he cameto the realization that his earlier work of providing tempor- ary care for homeless men was. a failure because he had waited I too long to help grown men, who, he said, after receiving assistance at the shelter "were off on their quest for whatever it is these lonely, homeless men are forever seeking, never finlng." Speaking of the motion picture, Monsignor Flanagan said at first F. Hawks, pastor of the Church one thing worried him  "who of St. Joan of Arc, Philadelphia, I would play Father Flanagan on told an English audience of his lthe screen." "Not that I feared travel in Nationalist Spain when lanything derogatory to me, but I he addressed a crowded audience|knew that millions of people at Bristol. I would judge the picture by that Monsignor Hawks said he wasl man," he added. "I made no re- returng-'from the Budapest Con-' quests, but when informed that gress and was visiting his brother pencer Tracy was to take the in Bristol, when he decided to have a look at Spain. He had no difficulty In getting the necessary permits, and he flew from Croydon to Saragossa, where he had been promised all l manner of amenities. These did, not materialize, however, a fact] for which he was thankful once l his early annoyance had passed, for he felt free to go unfettered and to see things for himself.  Monsignor Hawks said he "hitch hiked" and used trains and every available means of locomotion to see things and get around. He covered 2,000 miles in Spain. He went to the fron at Teruel and was present at the final op- erations at Bielsa, where he saw a church still burning after the Reds' evacuation. To those who told him he had seen only one side, Monsignor Hawks said that practically every place he had seen had been in the hands of the Leftists, and he had seen the results of their deviltry. He wore his soutane throughout, because "his one fear was that ,he freight be mistaken for one of certain Church of England dignl- ,%arles." He mingled freely with the people and found' them happy and devout. Of Guernica, Monsignor Hawks said that the story of the bomb- ing was "sheer fabrication." Com- mon sense, he said, showed that the town had been deliberately burned down. The American prelate said he was shown documentary evidence of the objectives of the air force in the air raids on Barcelona. The objectives were of military im- portance. part, I realized that prayers are always answered. "I had seen Tracy as Father Tim in 'San Francisco" and knew that he had an amazing ,ability which allowed him to play the part of a priest with a sincerity few other actors possess." "Boys Town is non-sectarian," he stated. "Admission is granted exclusively to homeless, abandon- ed and neglected boys between 12 and 16 years of age, although oc- casionally, in extreme cases, ex- ceptions are made. There is no dis- crimination as to religion, race or nationality. 4,000 Have Left Community "No boy leaves Boys Town un- til he has a place to go which is an improvement over his posi- tion here.

Tiffs step was taken at the two- day national convention of Black- friars, the first of its kind in the six-year history of the movement. Delegates from Washington, Pitts- burgh , Providence, Philadelphia, Madison, Wis., Minneapolis and St. Paul, Rochester and Brooklyn, gathered at tle Catholic Univer- sity of America to discuss the proposed national constitution, elect national officers, and dis- cuss problems and affairs of the drama in relation to the current development of the Catholic The- ater in the United States. In 1932, the germs of the Black- friars movement were planted by the Rev. Dr. Urban Nagle, O. P., young priest-playwright. Yester- day, in the closing hours of the convention, Dr. Nagel was elected Director General of the same movement, thus fulfilling, in part, a dream which was fashioned from the succes attendant upon Dr. Nagle's winning of a national playwriting contest and from his conviction that the future of the American theater lay in the Little Theater and in the Catholic The- ater. TO Be in Force for Year The national constitution was adopted yesterlay and will be in effect for a period of one year, at the end of which time, it will be amended into permanent form. In addition to the national constitu- tion, member-chapters of the Guild will have their chapter con- stitutions with by-laws covering local conditions and regulations.

Conference, discussing the con- tent of plays on Catholic stages, declared that "for Catholic groups anything won't go." "Your or- ganization," he said, "was born of a realization of the necessity of a high degree of discrimination both as regards form (or artistry of your production) and as regards their matter (or content)." "You are, I take it, not simply Catholics interested in acting well," he went on, "not simply Catholics interested in drama, but a group interested in drama as Catholics, which means that you are committed to the principle that drama is a means, not an end--and if a means, a means to what? Nothing short of the spreading of knowledge of Catholic truth and the Catholic way of life, through the pulpit of the stage." "If your ideal is less than that," he declared, "then you forfeit the right to call yourselves Catholic groups. You may be groups of Catholics, but onlY, in name do you differ from pagan or secular groups.
