I Catholic schools and every insinuation to the contrary is strongly resented by them. Morality is essential to the good or- der and proper growth of every com- munity. Long experience, including that of the recent war, has proved that without religious training, with- out a definite belief in God and in the Christian way and spirit of life, it is impossible to sustain in our American society respect for morality, i. e. for "7--- AbIERICANS VISIT [the sentiments prompting his refusal.

Our Catholic schools uphold in every quarter of the United States the tra- ditions of American political and social life. The original American type and conpect of popular govern- ment are today seriously challenged by many hostile agents, and the con- cern of our Government is amply jus- tified by the facts of communistic and anarchistic propaganda. Our Catholic teachers and school "texts do not need watching lest they be found to cor- lapt the upcoming youth of our cities and towns. Every Catimlic school is an ally of the American Governmen as handed down by the fathers, and a source of sane American patriotism, for it bases the love of our country on divine commands and on the leachinffs of the American Catholic Church from Archbishop Carroll to Cardinal Gib- bons. ,,%, -..'- -_ .-,,%,,. - ._, "- ,,%',",,",',,,'d' THE FOUNDATION STONE FOR THE NATIONAL SHRINE OF THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION Catholic Univer.qly cf America Washington, D.
