WALSH ORDERED BACK TO RUSSIA (By N. C. W. C. News Servicei Washington, l). C., Aug. 27.--The Rev. Edmund A. Walsh, S. J., head of the papal relief mission in Russia, who was expected to return to this country in September, has been or- dered back to Russia, according to word received here by the Rev. John B. Creeden. S. J., president of George- town University. Father Creeden recently received a letter from Father Walsh in Moscow, whither he had gone on the reception of a message from Rome. En route to Moscow from Constantinople, said Father Walsh in his communication, he stopped over at Warsaw, where he had heard that a delegation or Georgetown foreign service students were staying. He was unable to lo- cate them, however, ad had to leave before making further inquiries. Father Creeden has expressed the belief that in view of the fact that the America relief unit has witb- (lrawrl its+ work in Russia,. Father Walsh may be expected to return to America in a short "time.

Mel- lon, Secretary of the Treasury of the United States, is one of the most re- cent contributors to the fund of $200.-I 000 which is being raised here by pub- I lic subscription for the benefit of th, e[ Irish Nuns of Ypres. Mr. Mellon s[ donation to the fund was $o00, libel largest contribution from an indlvid-' ual which ires been received so f,.r. While Mr. MeUon was in London just before his return to the Uni:e(l States, lfis attention was called to tim appeal on behalf of the Nuns and iis donation immediately followed. Lord Mayor's Appeal The campaign to raise the fund J'or the Nuns has taken on more than a Catholic aspect here, inasmuch as prominent persons of all denomina- tions have'taken an active interest in it and the appeal is made to the British puubIic generally. When the money is raised it will be used to en- able the Nuns to establish themselves' in their new Abbey at Kylemore, Connemara, to replace their Abbey at Ypres which was destroyed during the early stages of the Worhl War..The l l,ord Mayor of London has issued a special app(,al on behalf of tho Nus! and the American Ambassador, Gco.

An enthusi- astic transcriber who is over sixty years of age has finished a copy of "The Little Office of Our Lady," which will be used by blind members of the Third Order of St. Dominic.

During the reign of James lI the Ir- ish nuns led by Dame Butler, their +Abbess, were asked+, to return to Dub- ,lin and take charge of a new Bene- dictine foundation there. Their work in Dublin was rudely interrupted, however, after the Battle of the Boyne, when William of Orange came into power, and the Nuns returned to Ypres. After many initial hardships their Abbey there prospered until the World War. Nun's Work in War When the British forces were thrown back on Ypres in 1914, the Abbey of the Irish Nuns was used as a military hospital and the nuns themselves aided in caring for the wounded and dying. Only when compelled to (lo so by the military and civil authorities did tiffs commu- nity of Catholic women agree t,) abandon their Abbey which, by that time was reduced to ruins.

The dabe will be before Nov. 13, he added as the former premier wishes to be back in England on that date, when par- liament convenes. "L. G's visit will not be political," Sir Alfred said. "Nor will he give any lectures or make any speeches for money. He probably will speak Republican. Mayor Durgan began by telling how the Constitution of the United States was made, and how the fathers pro- vided, at the very outset, that no re- ligious test should be applied and that everybody should enjoy freedom of worship. He showed that separation of Church and State was provided for in the U. S. Constitution, and in the Constitution of all the States, includ- ing Indiana. He then launched into an attack on the "masked and hood- ed band," which claims such strength in Indiana, and said, "The knaves and imposter who founded the K. K.

Nws Service) New York, Aug. 20.--A message given to the press by the Knights of Columbus publicity department when in convention at Montreal as having come from President Coolidge, was delivered to the Knights of Columbus before Mr. Coolidge became Presi- dent, according to a statement made by John B. Kennedy, publicity direc- tor of the K. of C., who declares he assumed that a transcript of a letter found in a package of correspondence was a reply from President Coolidge to a telegram which had been sent -by William C. Prout, Massachusetts State Deputy. Prout's Statement Mr. Prout in Boston, has also issued a statement, substanlally bearing out Mr. Kennedy's assertion. Mr. Kennedy's statement is as fol- lows: "I received word from a member'of the Boston party of the Knights of Columbus convention in Montreal on August 5 that a mesage had been sent to President Coolidge pledging him fealty and devotion, and that a reply to this message was expected. Later, 1 was tohl that a package of correspondence had arrived in Mon- treal from the Massachusetts head- quarters of the Knights of Columbus. 1 secured this package and found in it a transcript of an expression of warm appreciation of the Knights of Columbus by Mr. Coolidge. I assum- ed this to be a copy of the expected response to the telegram of fealty and devotion sent him frpm Boston. ]['his I gave to the press as a tribute from President Coolidge to the Knights of Columbus, stating that it had come to the to his previous message from Presi- dent Coolidge. The message made public, I learned, was delivered to the Knights of Columbus by Mr. Coolidge before he became President." Mr. Prout's statement, made in Boston, as- as follows:: "When President Coolidge was gov- ernor of Massachusetts he did make the statement attributed to him. This was not read at the convention, but it was there, toether with other trib- utes paid to the Knights of Columbus from time to time. "I had received a letter from the President in acknowledgement of a telegram of loyalty I had sent him on his accessmn to .the Presidency. This I did net consider a pblic document, and it was not read at the convention but apparently it became known that some such message had been received. When press representatives looked for it, in some way they obtained possession of the one which was pub- lished later. President's Appreciation "The letter which I received from the President was as follows: only once or twice during his visit. It has bee his life wish to visit the United States. He regards it as part of the education of an intelligent F " +mghshman to visit the United States. "He said to me before I left: "1 want to go to America, as the Amer- icans are teaching the world how to] do things." ' I I MANY ACKNoLEDGE AlI) 0I; LIFILI,, 1 I+()WLR (By N. C. W. C.

"When Dante conceived his 'In- ferno,' and tried to paint the horrors of the City of the Damned, it never entered into his mind to conceive any deep damnation like this The mask- ed and hooded band is now about to murder the happiness of the young of America," Mayor Durgan said "a certain type of Protestant ministers are responsi- ble for this infamous work. But they cannot always be masked.
