MINISTER (Catholic Observer, Pittsburgh.) in which the latter had kind words for and about the Catholic Church. His Herr, president of the Westinghouse main objection to those statements was that the authors of several of them were now dead, and he attempt- ed to take to task the at. Roy. Msgr. John F. Nell, LL.D., editor of Our Stinday Visitor, for printing state- ments made by dead persons. Broadcasting Station Rega*ets Father Coakley and Monsignor Nell took the matter up immetuatey with the Westinghouse officials, protesting against the use of Station KDKA for anti-Catholic purposes. President Herr expressed his regret over the in- cident iu the following letter which has just been received y Father Coakley: Westinghouse Electric and Manufac- turing Company. East Pittsburgh, Pa. August I, 1923. Rev. Thomas F. Coakley, D.D., Rector Sacred Heart Church, 5934 Center Avenue, Pittsburgh, Pa. Dear Sir: Mr. Humphrey has transmitted to me your letter of July 20, enclosing copy of letter from Monsignor Nell with reference to the anti-Catholic sermon broadcasted from our Pitts- burgh station recently by Rev. W. T. Duncan. We regret very much indeed that this should have happened, as it is against our policy to permit anything of this kind. While we have regular- ly bcen broadcasting Dr. Duncan's sermons, we, of course, had no knowl- edge what he was going o talk about. Our people have again been cau= tioned that they must be exceedingly careful not to permit propaganda of any kind, for we certainly do not want to broadcast anything that would b obnoxious to any of our listeners. Yours tru.y, (Signed) E. M. HERR, President, Regret has been expressed by E. M. Electric Manufacturing Company of East Pittsburgh, that the Westing- house radio station was the means of broadcasting a recent anti-Catholic sermon delivered by the Rev. W. Wof- ford T. Duncan, pastor of the Emery Methodist Episcopal Church, Highland Avenue, East End. Dr. Duncan's ser- mon was directed particularly against i the Catholic schools, whlIe he also had some unkind remarks to make about some statements appearing in the Catholic Observer and Our Sunday Visitor," published at Huntington, Ind. Will Know More Now The Emery Methodist Episcopal Church is located within the lmlts of Sacred Heart Church, Center Avenue and Rev. Father T. F. Coakley, D.D., pastor of Sacred Heart, answered th not very reverend gentleman's attack by starting at once to erect a Camolie high school across the sreez from Dr. Duncan's church. The people of Sacred Heart. Parish believe that Dr. Duncan does not know anything about the Catholic Church or ls scnools, and that if he had a Catholic school Im- mediately opposite him his earkness might be illuminated. Besides his remarks about the Cath- olic schools, Rev. Duncan toc excep- tion to an article printed m the Cath- olic Observer which advised Catholics not to "listen in" on Protestant serv- ices which were being broadcast. Dr. Duncan, in his sermon, declared he was a "regular reader" of the Catho- lic Observer, but his name does not appear on the subscription lists in this office. Criticizes Sunday Visitor In the same sermon, Dr. Duncan took issue with the punncazon in Our Sunday Visitor of a long list of statements from Protestant ministers MATTINGLY FAMILY GIVES SIXTH DAUGHTER AS BRIDE OF CHRIST On the Feast of the Assumption, August 15, among those to be received as postulants for the Sisters of Mer- cy, of St. Mary's Convent, Pulaski Heights, was Miss Mary Mattingly, youngest daughter of the late Thee. W. Mattingly, and his widow, Mrs. Mary, of 3115 West Twenty-first street. Miss Mary is the  sixth of the Mat- tingly girls to enter the religious life. Three are now members of the Sis- ters of Loretto in Ientucky. These are known in religion as Sisters M. Winifred, M. Veronica and M. Thom- as Louise. Miss Mary has selected to be of the Sisters of Mercy, and will now join the two Mattingly sisters at Mr. St. Mary's, Sisters M. John the Baptist and M. Herman, The Guardian and her many friends have prayerful hopes that Miss Mary's entrance will bear with it all her cherished blessings, with an abundance of the same to revert to her mother, who has given of her love and her life these six daughters as Brides of Christ. May God bless them all. CENTRIST POLICY IS ABLYDEFENDED BY VETERAN LEADER (By N. C. W. C. News Service.) Cologne, Aug. I.A defense of the policy of the Centrist Party leaders in uniting with the Socialists for the preservation of the State was made by the senior Deputy Herold on the occasion of his seventy-fifth anniver- sary, when a celebration was ar- ranged in his honor. "It is to the eternal credit of the Centrist Party that, after the debacle and revolution, it actively participated in the restoration and reformation of State conditions," said Deputy Her- old. "It is an error to think the working men's secretaries in the Cen- trist Party alone defended that policy. It was defended by tim old party lead- ers themselves, myself among them." --For Political Purposes Only. The statement was received with great enthusiasm, for it has been a standing reproach to the Centrists, among certain elements, that they 'worked with the Socialists, thus giv- ing them might and power, without which they never would have been able to dominate the broken State. It is considered that there is a certain consolation and proof of great polit- ical sagacity among the Centrist lead- ers in the fact that they agreed to co-operatioon with the Socialist% when the Socialists had an absolute majority, in the days of the revolution and when such co-operation was nec- essary to save the State from ruin. NO DISTINCTIVELY CATHOLIC PARTY IN IRISH ELECTIONS (By N. C. W. C. News Service.) Dublin, Aug. 6.There will be no distinctively Catholic party in the field in the forthcoming elections, campaigning for which is already in full swing. Although the formation of a Catholic centre party has been discussed, this discussion has been chiefly in connection with the estab- lishment of the projected new Catho- lic weekly for Ireland and the pro- ponents of a movement to launch a definite Catholic political movement show no disposition to enter the lists In the coming electoral tests. Meetings are now being held every- where by the supporters of the Free State government; also by the Farm-" ers and the Labor Party. There are numerous independent candidates in- eluding some ex-members of tim for- mer Irish party. FORMER KLANSMEN URGE CHURCH UNION TO WAR ON BIGOTRY (By N. C. W. C. News Service.) Cliff Haven, N. Y., Aug. 10.Un- less American non-Catholics and Catholics unite for the promotion of true Americanism, the United States will be the scene of racial and reli- gious warare, was the prediction made by Henry P. Fry of New York, in an address at the Catholic Summer School here. Mr. Fry was formerly a member of the Ku Klux Klan but withdrew and assisted in the expos- ure of that organization by a New York newspaper two years ago. He is now the president af an organiza- tion formed to combat intolerance in the United States. The speaker referred to the pass- age of the Oregon anti-parochial school law, saying: Foresees Danger "As I see the situation, the Ore- gon election will be taken as an en- dorsement of the Ku Klux Klan pro- t gram. The same campmgn will be in- augurated in other States, and if the Oregon law is upheld by the United States Supreme Court---and I think it will be---you are going to see the same thing happen in other small States. Step by step in the same way that prohibition was foisted on the eou try, State by State will be gained, un- til thirty-six States have acted, and then you are going to see an effort made to amend the Constitution of the United States, placing every school child in the country under the direct supervision of the Federal Govern- ment. "In other words, where you have the largest Catholic populations, in States like New York, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and Illinois, your pa- rochial schools are likery to be closed without even giving you a chance to vote on the question." r
