Berlin, Aug. 3.--The Catholics of Germany, awakening from the be- numl)ing effects of the war, with its consequent intellectual errors and con- fast(m, have made such tremendous gains ill courage and self-confidence that they are taking a more vigorous stand against the persecutions to which, as a minority, they heretofore have been subjected One of the most striking proofs of this new spirit of open warfare against injustice has been furnislled by the Catholic parents of Herne in Westphalia, who, in pro- lest against the inaction of the gov- ernment when they complained about all irreligious teacher ill the Catholic school, kept their chihh'en at home.'

Whosoever studies tile history of the great defection from the Clmrch in the occident and is familiar with the sad role played by the rulers, especially of the court of Berlin, will marvel at the change.

And while the Center Party has been sharl)ly criticized for its 'coalition and co-operation with the socialist nmJority which existed when the new republic organized its first form of g0vermnent, there are many who are firmly convinced that with- out this move by tile Center Party there would be no papal nuncio in Ber- lin today.

LAYMEN'S RETREATS Protest Bigotry The actions of the anti-Catholic bigots have aroused a storm of pro- test." A committee composed entirely of non-Catholic members of the Unit- ed Daughters of the Confederacy has adopted resolutions pointing out that that organization wag responsible for the move to honor Benson and that the action was prompted by the fact that he is a distinguished son of Georgia :and by no other motive. The resolutions point to the notable ser- vices of European Catholics in the great war, especially those of Marshal Foch. TheMacon Telegram, in an editorial, scores Olive for his bigotry and declares that he "deserves a sound licking" in his campaign for Congress. CHURCH CHIMES B' ELECTRICITY (By N. C. W. .

"Practically all of "the (Catholic) in- stitutions and hany of the religious orders of men are engaged in iphilan- thropic work of one kind or another, while many of these devote their en- tire time to this work." The latest Catholic tilrectory gives the number of homes for aged persons as 121. The total number of inmates of these homes is not given.

In addition to these various perma- nent establishments for the sick, poor, fatherless and aged, Catholics do a great labor of charity through the more than 1,000 conferences of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, and through other similar agencies.

Mass., Aug. 16.--Real relief for the mind and spirit of the tired business man is being affordcd in many parts of America today under the auspices of religious leaders who are eonducting laymcn's retreats. The spread of the retreat movement dur- ing the past five years has been so great that the number of men who will .participate in such retreats be- fore the summer season is over is es- timated to run into the tens of thou- sands. The.faculty of Holy Cross College in Worcester has just announced a rereat of three days, to start on Fri- day, August 27, at 6 Cclock, and to close on Monday, August 30, at 8 o'clock, allowing the participants to be back at business with the loss of only haft a working day. The invi- tation sent out points to the fact that "in America," perhaps as nowhere else in the worhl, does the Catholic man so need this annual refreshment of his soul, jaded as it necessarily be- comes, from the ceaseless struggle imposed upon it by the conditions of work and business life."
