It is an ordinance of reason, he said, an integral part of the natural law, and in its basic elements unchangeable and indestructible like all natural Iaw. This law of nations, Bishop Mu- erich observed, is expressed in the concepts of justice, equity and charity. "Justice, equity, and charity," the Bishop said, "are powerful factors for the rebuilding of a peaceful world. But they must be given a chance. They must be reinforced with the steel of strong religious convictions. Without religion they wither and die, and with them withers and dies also the law of nations." Race Divided The law of nations recognizes the divinely-sanctioned fact, Bishop Muench said, that the hu- man race, despite its unity and solidarity, is divided into social groups, nations, or states. "These differences must be faced as realities," he averred. "Nations never die. But the law of nations must furnish the com- mon ground on which they all can meet to work together in friendly and harmonious activity for the building of a solid and ample structure of peace." Discussing the will to peace, Bishop Muench observed that eharity's golden task is the writ- ing of peace on the hearts of men. But charity, he continued, must be more than noble sentiments-or noble worlds. An End To Slander The will to peace, Bishop Mu- ench continued, must manifest it- self also in the end of detraction, slander and calumny and the riculum. The curriculum offered in the high school department at Morris School is standard and has the approval of the State Depart- ment of Education. Morris is a resident school con- ducted by the Franciscan Broth- ers, who are dedicated to the work of educating young boys for the business of living life to the full- est. Life to be full must be livec from a supernatural motive hence Religion, Morals, Culture and Citizenship are the specific aims of Morris School. !

St. Benedict's Quits Intercollegiate Athletics Atchison, Kans. (H:)--St. Bene- dict's College is giving up inter- collegiate athletics for the dura- tion of the war, the board of athletics announced. The decision was made after it became appar- ent that the lack of a service unit at the school and the consequent greatly reduced enrollment, to- gether with the difficulties of transportation would make inter- collegiate competition impossible. No change is contemplated, how- ever, in the intra-mural sports system at the college. recognition of truth. "The vast machinery of publicity," he said, "the press, the radio, the speaker's forum, must be enlisted in favor of 'the sacred patrimany of truth and pacifying charity which nine- teen "centuries of Christianity have laboriously brought to man- kind' " (Plus XII).

They had husbands and children. Af- ter a time, they began to worry about their domestic problems. It is said that eleven per cent of women worker's have quit their war jobs because of worry over their children and other con- cerns that relate to the home. This is a healthy sign. They should worry. It will profit this nation nothing to win the war, if broken homes and delinquent children result from it. Many women workers followed their husbands, who are In the service. When the husbands went over- seas, the women returned, to their old homes. Women, after a while, realized that there are things in life besides money. They were asked to work at night an to go i to and from work on streets that were unlighted. They became the victims of hoodlums, who should be working, but for some reason are not. The War Produc- tion Board could have taken means to prevent many of these difficulties, but no one bothered about it until production began to lag. Then an appeal was made to the Churches. If women must be employed in war work, care should be taken to employ only those, who have no domestic dut- ies to prevent. This could be done by using only unmarried women and insisting upon their remain- ing unmarried for the duration. Women, who have reared their families and can get away, could be employed also. There have been too many hasty and ill-ad- vised marriages since the war be- gan. Churchmen have protested against them often, but govern- ment officials pay no attention to Churchmen until they have a mess to clear up. Then they want miracles whereas natural means properly taken are suf- ficient. the best interests of the individual and society. The Church has al- ways looked with disfavor upon coeducation and permits it only as a lesser evil where it is im- possible to maintain separate schools. Pope Plus XI, in his encyclical upon Christian Educa- tion, condemns coeducation in no uncertain language. Russia, in its short experience, has only dis- covered what Christian educators have known for centuries. Amer- ican educators are slow to per- ceive evils and even slower in correcting them. One of the out- standing weaknesses in our sys- tem of public education in this country is the discipline. There is little or none. This difficulty might be solved if educators would' realize that coeducation is a defect in education. Men and women are equal only in the ab- stract sense of the term. In the concrete they have essentially dif- ferent functions in society. So they need education that suits these purposes., English War - Prisoners Co!lect Fund For Prmst London.

Because of her successful snd against the supposedly invincible armies of Hitler, Russia has won the admiration of a great many people, even in this nation. This does not mean that Americans accept what Russia is pleased to call democracy. We are engaged in a war for the survival of our right to live according to the did- tares of conscience. Russia is fighting on our side. We are pleased with her courage, while we deplore her irreligion. The wise man can always learn from the experience of others. Russia has experimented on a large scale, and has been willing to dis- card measures that prove unsatis- factory. The Russian government repudiated Socialism after a short trial and introduced a new sys- tem, called Sovietism. The lat- est news from the educational front in Russia is that coeduca- tion has been abandoned from the Kindergarten through high school. The Soviet government has no religious convictions. It is acting purely from a practical standpoint. It has discovered that "women have duties, which men have not." The girl, as a future mother, must know how to care for children and how to edu- cate them. All jobs in society can not be performed with equal success by men and women."
