If the figures are reliable, they are an interesting revelation. To realize the true significance of these figures, one needs to look back a little over the past history of the National Church. Brought into being by the revolt against ,Rome and founded over the prostrate and outraged obdy of the ancient Catholic Church, this cre- j ation of the State started in life with every conceivable advantage. It ca- I joyed the ancient Catholic cathedral and parish churches with the pious endowments given through centuries by Catholic benefactors. Numerous Acts of Parliament were passed to its advantage, with the intention at the same time of stamping out and ut- terly destroying the Catholic religion. No imaginable privilege of the law was omitted. Yet today, on the state- ment of one of its own bishops, it counts very little more than two and one-fourth million practicing adher- ents. On the other hand, what is the Catholic position. For more than three centuries the Catholics were lhc victims of legal persecution and po- litical propaganda ordained to dmir extinction. Less than a hundrea years ago they were practically out- laws, being deprived of their rights as citizens until 1829. Today, theCatholics in England and Wales number just under two mil- lion.

In the last statistical year the bap- tisms of children in the Catholic Church totalled some 73,322. So that the total number of souls added to the Church in the last statistical yea- was 847.41. Catholic Numerical Dominancy Certain The Anglican Church professes to be the Church of the nation; it is commonly supposed, on account of its alleged numerical superiority, to rep- resent the religious opinion of the nation. Brat the day cannot now be far off when, if numbers are of any account, the Catholic Church will be the dominant single religious confes- sion of England and Wales. FRENCH-VATICAN AGREEMENT FINAL (By N. C. W. C. News Service) Paris, Aug. ll.Information dated i from Rome and published in certain foreign papers states that the agree- ment between the Vatican and France on the subject of the legal status of the Church is not yet final, an(l tha the Holy See is waiting, before giving its formal consent, until the French Government shall have accepted an additional clause permitting the bish- ops to resign, if tley so desire, as presidents of the Diocesan Assocla- ,tions and to dissolve the latter A dispatch from the Roman corre- spondent of the semi-official Havas News Agency states that "this infor- mation shows a complete ignorance of the question." In authorized circles, the Havas report says, it is declared that the projected statutes, on the subject of which correspondence has been exchanged by M. Poincare ann the Nuncio, has already regulated the question of the dissolution of the Di- ocesan Associations. There is, there- fore, no further, change to be made in the statutes, which are now final. Sugar, as is well known, will catch more flies than vinegar, but at pres- ent such bait is.too expensive.

COLORED CATHOLICS PRESENT "TILE PAGEANT OF THE ASSUMPTION,, (By N. C. W. C. News Service) Washington, D. C., Aug. 20.--See. eral thousan d spectators witnessed the "Pageant of the Assumption," given by the parishioners of the Church of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, a color- ed congregation, yesterday, on the church campus at Congress Heights. The pageant was written by the Rev. Franz M. W. Schneeweiss, pas- tor of the church, and formerly an Episcopalian minister.

Route No. 3 BROTHER ALBERT, SEARCY, ARK. PAGESEVEN passage of the Volstead act, the or- ganization is "superfluous." Ths de- cision was made by the State Tax De- partment. Sheriffs do not take a theological course as part of their training. And unfortunately many of them know John Howard Payne, the author of the immortal ballad, "Home, Sweet Home," the centenary of which was recently celebrated, died a Catholic. A few weeks before his death (1852), at Tunis, where he was American consul Payne was received into the Catho- lic Church by the vicar of the Bishop less about law than about theology. A of Tunis. sheriff in Nebraska has given an or- der to his deputies (according to a newspaper report) to "shoot to kill" motorists seen speeding. Promiscuous murder by-'law officers is a pretty desperate remedy for speeding. This' sheriff is merely ignorant. Someone should attend to his education. A bishop, even an Episcopal bishop, shouhi, however, show a little more discrimination in provoking people to murder. An Episcopal bishop who has jurisdiction in Texas, and upon whom the Episcopalians down there have to rely for their light and lead- ing, is quoted as saying that "he thinks it preferable in a case of mar- tial infidelity for a husband to pump a lot of lead into the other man rather than to name him co-respond- ent in a divorce case and then sue for damages." The fact that this bishop tlnks murder preferable does not make it right. But unfortunately, some people might think it does.
