PAGE SIX IRISH HIERARCHY PROTESTS INSULT / TO DR. MANNIX A U S TR A LIAN ARCHBISHOP'S CAUSTIC COMMENT ON LLOYD GEORGE'S OFFER. (By N. C. W. C. New. Service.) Dublin, Aug. 25The Irish Hier- archy have issued a strong protest against the action of the British gov- ernment in preventing Archbishop Mannix visiting Ireland. The full text of this protest may be found un- der "Communications" in this issue of The Guardian. / Dr. Mannix zmd Lloyd George. In view of the fact that the m. other of Axchbislap Mannix is over 80 years of age, and stated that she wourd be unable to go to London to see her son, the statement of Mr. Lloyd George that the government would give .her every assistance to visit her son in England is regarded as an exhibition of oruel cyniciem, as well as an attempt to nislead opinion abroad that the British Government was acting benevolently. Archbishop's Mother. t Archbishop Mannix has made some caustic comments on Mr. Lloyd George's remark in the House of Commons that the British Govern- ment would give every assistance to his Grace's mother to visit him in England. His Grace says, "He speaks of giving her assistance to visit me in England. He is under some misapprehension. She needs no assistance it is in his power to ren- der, but she can't resist the burden of her eighty-nine years. Perhaps, how- ever, he would do me the favor--a small one--of making no further use of her name. Cynical Event. "In any event, a further reminder of the cynical event of consideration for old age could not improve his present position before the press or the country, and ttle police court flip- pancy of further answer in the House of Commons could not greatly en- hance his reputation." A report by a British newspaper that the Pope telegraphed to Arch- bishop Mannix not to attempt to land in Ireland is "an absolute falsehood There is not a scintilla of truth in it," declares Father Vaughan, the Archbishop's secretary. "Hands Off Mannix." "The tone of the Prince of Wales has atracted very little attention in Australia, while the attention of the whole world is rivetted on our pros- pective Prince of the Church, Arch- bishop Mannix ,ever since he left Aus- tralia," said . Mr. J. J. O'Kelly, M. P. ("Sceilg'), president of the Gaelic. League, in addressing a gathering of 20,000 people in Trafalgar Square, London, to protest against the treat- ment of his Grace by the British Gov- ernment. With Count Plunkett, M. P., and Alderman McDonagh, M. P., brother ,of Thomas McDonagh, shot for his part in the Easter rising in 1916, Mr. O'Kelly represented Dail Eireann. Alderman MeDouagh said the British Government would not be able to keep Archbishop Mannix out of Ireland. Their demand that day was'hot only "Hands off Mannix," burn"Hands off Ireland." Mrs. kDespard, sister of Lord French, Lord Lieutenant of Ire- land, said Ireland, having established a Republic, it was nonsense to talk about Dominion Home Rule. BABE RUTH'S HOME RUNS HAVE ECHO'A ORPHANAGE Boys at St. Mary's Industrial School at Baltimore Cheers for Old Stu- dent as He Adds to Stick Fame. Every time that "Babe" Ruth adds another home run to that record which has given him the title "Co- lossus of Swat," a roar goes up from St. Mary's Industrial School which can be heard many, miles away in Baltimore. That statement may not mean much to the people who saw' him make his thirty-ninth four-base hi in the game between the New York Yankees and the Chicago White Sex at the 35th street .grounds here recently. But it means eerything to those who know the ground over which "Babe" trod in the days when he was accumulating that power to make the sphere go after the altitude record and to make "Babd" a national hero. "Babe" as a Boy. What Baltimore man, or at least what West Baltimore man, is there who does not remember the roars which have come rolling over the walls of the St. Mary's Industriak School grounds on summer afternoons and particularly on Sunday after- I noons/in summer, for years? It is I THE GUARDIAN, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 1920. literally true that they could be heard for Pailes. St. Mary's is at Caton and Wilkens avenues. But i is on record that the noise from the threats of hundreds of lads playing and watching th e game has carried very far. Grown men re- member the tinm, twenty-five years ago, when the section around St. Mary's, now covered with homes, was a woods, when the only house be- tween Brunswick street and St. Mary's was Lutz's tavern, and when Brother Dominic, who died thirteen years ago, was bhe head of the school. Ball Player From Start. It was before Brother Dominic's death, back in 19/)2, when "Babe" first went to St. Mary's, a boy of 8 years old. He was born a 426 Camden street, where his father k#p. a sa- loon. Amd Brother Matthias, who has been the athletic director of the school for twenty-five or thirty Yea, is authority f the statement that he could play baseball from the first moment he landed on the diamond. A thick-bodied, hard-fisted, self-reliant youngster, he waded right in an(r made a place on the team from the first day he landed. Until the fire-which destroyed so much of St. Mary's Industrial School last April, St. Mary's baseball team continued to be the pacemakers of boyhood baseballthe very terrors of the diamond. "Babe" remained in the school from 1902 to 1914. He was for years tle star of stars there. And when Jack Dunn persuaded Brother Paul to let him leave the school and join the Orioles in the latter year, he was no stranger to the thrill which comes to a player when he sees the bleachers rise in mass and yell be- cause of some brilliant play of his. They had been doing that at St. Mary's for years. Big and Powerful Man. The holder of the world's home-run record was,then only 20 years old. He was a 6-foot giant weighing 180 pounds, with the shoulders of a Co- lossus, great arms that reached al- most to his knees and wrists that were the marvel of the men who shook hands with him It is in his wrists, say those who know him, that his power to hit the ball lies. Brother Paul, who had succeeded Brother Dominic as the head of St. Mary's, was made his guardian and remained in that relation until the ball player became 21. Ruth still re- tains close relations with his old friends at the school. Brother Mat- thias is still there, glorying in his deeds and telling the boys who play ball on the diamond now how the man who once played on it there has become a home-run king; the greatest figure in baseball. Ball Revived at School. Every boy who makes wo home runs in succession out there now is called for a day "Oh, you Babel" There has not been as much baseball at St. Mary's since the fire as ,there was before, because the school has ofil smaller boys. But when the brothers get the money for their new buildings they are going to put the sport back in its old place. They've got to get those new buildings, be- cause "Iabe" gave them last year the bat with which he made his twenty- ninth home run in 1919, and it may b@ that he'll give them the bat with which he makes his last four-bagger this year. TRUE EDUCATION EMBODIES SOUND RELIGIOUS TRAINING (Continued from Page '.) true parental duty, so that kind firm- ness and uniform discipline may give to those committed to their care that strength and resolution of soul that are the best endowment and most reliable inheritance they can carry into active life. The world is not the smiling para- dise it appears to inexperienced youth; it is filled with difficulties and temptations, and the sooner children are prepared }o meet" realities the better for them and for society. Bad School for the Child. What school of life could be worse for a growing child than a home where scenes of vanity, selfishness at discord are daffy enacted before innocent eyes, where pleasure is the sole object of existence and the will of God and His law are ignored! With such examples before them, children are bound to grow up selfish, rebel- lious, prone to evil, enemies of so- ciety instehd of its supporters, lia- bilities to Church and State and not assets, and finally, doomed to wretchedness and heartbreak. Look now upon the family where God's will is law, cheerfully and quickly obeyed where Christian dis- cipline is the rule; where father and mother present to their children a good example of "restraint, strength and affection; where corrupting in- fluences are sternly banished and all things regulated according ,to the / highest standards. Such is the home in which tranquility reigns and the goodly spirit of a well ordered house- hold is ever manifest. f One of the first lessons to be taught to the child is confidence in God, in the Church as God's representa- tive on earth and in the parents as His agents in the home. This con- fidence must be carefully nurtured, for it is he rock on which man and woman later on will stand firm against the assaults of evil and every trial. The best way to instil this quality into Fee young heart is the example of it made daily visible in the parents' lives. bfodern Idea of Education. It would seem according to modern ideas of education that the most su- blime puSpose of training is the t- tainment of self-confidence. Anyone who knows modern childrlife eten supe'ficially must realize that there is no ! need in these times for any special cultivation of this much over- rated virtue. Of course all children ought to be taught a "certain amount of self-reliance, and when it is obvious that individuals are lacking' in this quality, they should be gently led to the attainment of it. But self- reliance unrestrained and rampant is a very repulsive thing. Excessive self-reliance is the rhother of "the grossest and most revolting egotism, bad enough among those of ripe age, but in children ,its presence is painful [to those who behold it; it is so un- childlike and therefore nnatural. " The sublimest and most beautiful selfonfidence is the unfailing hope that God will help us if we do our best and the recognition of the fact Both the father and the mother of that even our very best without the ball player are dead: He has one God's help will accomplish but poor ore a saleslady land unsahsfactory results The habit sister living in Baltim , I '.

" s for "ChildhoOd. With so many dangers lurking to entrap childhood, with evil en- I trenched everywhere, what are par- ente and guardians to do to ensure a coming generation of sterling and dependable men and women? First and most important, essential in the highest degree is to get back to the Christian system of training and development, to follow strictly the rule laid down by the Lord: "Suffe little children to come unto Me." Everything in the home must r Under Leo XIII Monsignor Dells Chiesa occupied: Monsignor Tedeschi- ni's present post andj His Holiness was, therefore, in familiar surround- ings when he stepped into the unpre- tentious little drawing room where Monsignor Tedeschini was waiting to receiv the honor of lis visit.

"]'here need be no vagueness as to the true model of the Christian home, since God Himself has por- trayed that abode in  Nazareth where Christ lived so many years and was subject to Mary and Joseph, where the joy of obedience, '0Tk and union of hearts were the influences ani- mating all three. The Holy Family is a shining reality which ought al- ways be kept before parents and children, and especially in this day, i because it gives the remedy for :worldly notions and false system and illustrates the true rule of family life. Constarlt Watchfulness. Constant watchfulness is one of the most important duties of parents; if they fail in this they are unworthy of the names of father and mother; if they care only for vanity ad dis- play, what wonder if the children fol- low the evil example! We all know, alas! where this fata]path, entered upon in childhood, eventually leads-- to moral destruction. Religion ever occupy te must highest place in the Christian home. Side by side with careful training in God's law must come frequent use of His Sacraments, so needful in the years when budding passion is devel- oping like a po!sonous plant in the soul. Thus will the little oes be brought near to Ghrst, endowed with noble qualities dnd formed on right ideals. An excellent custom, now unfortu- nately more honored in the breach than the observance, yet which is of great power in sanctifying the ome and training children for the future, is family prayer. At least once a day all should unite in this devotion that purifies and sweetens the whole household. The Printed Page. The prifited page has its dangers and great ones too. It is fatally easy today for the child to happen on read- ing that is rank soul-poison. Re- creation also must receive parental attention and the companionship of the children's hours of play be safely guarded. It is a grave omission for fathers and mothers to neglect this, for many a little one, carefully pro- tected and taught at home, has come to disaster through bad companions. "Shffer little children to come unto Me" is a command, a law laid down for parents, and the only right way to bring up a Child is to see that it is near to the Lord at all times; at home, at work and at play. The children of this Diocese are mine, for I feel I am their father in God. I The growth of their souls in purity and strength is one of my greatest solicitudes and the ten- derest affection of my heart goes out  especially to thd lambs of the flock. I feel this responsibility very deeply. I want them to know my voice; to hear it and to love it; to remember me in their prayers and esteem. They will walk as we lead them in faith and work. This grave respox-: sibility is ours, dear Christian par- ents, and we must guard and fulfill it as one of our highst duties. Hope of Church and State. I , It is a most inspiring and consoling thought for me to reflect that I can be of such great service in bringing the chihlren to our Blessed Re- deemer, for in a few years these little ones whose solid foundations of faith and piety are now being laid in' so many thousand homes, in so many of God's temples, in so many schools conducted by devoted Religious,/will be the sterling men and women of His Diocese, the st'egth and support of Church and State in the coming time. I Duty of Parents. The duty of parents always has the same unvarying obligation and pes- sure, but now on the return from re- :creation and vacation, when naturally i diseipline has Ieen somewhat re- laxed, it is time to reflect and return with renewed vigor to a 'fresh con- sideration of them. It is my earnest wish that parents read and explain this message of mine to* the children; that they may real- ize that my heart is with them and my constant petition to Almighty God is for their growth in holiness, their welfare and true appiness. I pray that they may be"gin the school year with eager minds and bodies in- vigorated by rest, and realize how precious are-these years of prepara- tion both fo) time a)nd eternity, so that they ma%, make the fullest use of the opportunities presented to them now. Only the most diligent work and :study will prepare" them sufllciently for their future duties, a noble filling of whatever place they are destined to hold. They must flee idleness as one of the worst evils of life. This does not mean that they are not to lave re- creation which is the wise use of unemployed time to give strength to body and soul. Idleness is t]urpose- less frittering away of time, one of God's most precious gifts. Let them begin to value their lives as of in- estimable worth; let them realize even now that God has given them something definite to do in the world and that He will hold them account- able for the use of His sacred gifts in fhe accomplishment of this work. Each hour idly spent brings its pen- alty ad its quickest result is un- happiness. he busy are always happy. They who see high and noble purposes in life are too much occu- pied to be easily worried and dis- heartered. Let them learn to love study. The miner descending into the depths of the earth well knows the sordidness and discomfort of his surroundings, but he forgets these in the quest for precious metal; he digs and searches, and as eash period of labor is re- .arded with a nugget of gold or sil- ver, all thought of fatigue, of clinging soil and stubborn rock is as nothing. Treasures of Knowledge. As the workman familiarizes him- self with whatever can help him to attain the object of his search, so should the student habituate himself to serious effort in delving into the treasures of knowledge.' A well- stored mind is. a wonderful prepara- tion for life. The wealth of the mind is a treasure that no one can take away; it is the key to whole worlds of wisdom, awaiting the patient in- dustry of those who ard determined to obtain it'. The nuggets of knowl- edge which the toil of the student brings forth are part of the wisdom of the ages. The lives of! all the saints and heroes, the men and Women who have accomplished won- derful things for God and fellowman form a rich store of human experience which study reveals. The secret of their goodness and greatness will be found "in a lively faith in their eter- nal destiny and a desire to follow G.od's will to the very end of their strength. And from a realization of. tl)is same faith 9nd obedience to God's will must cpme the vital spark which in due time will develop the children of today into the sterling Christian men and women of to- Peter and Visit to Is PROF.

The atmos- prayer to Sts Peter a ( phere of the business world is filled with the exaltation of false ideals, certain to breed disappointment, full of peril to mind, heart and soul. Our children should be warned of .these dangers, against this fever of money- getting,, this blind ambition to at- tain high places of doubtful honor, for they are all symptoms of a per- ending and fell disease. Not that way les happiness, and after all, hap- piness is Goal's greatest gift to man on earth. No, what we wish to point out now  is the fulfillment of life's highest des- tiny in a cheerful, contented, fruitful and laborious life, sanctified to the full by love of God and the noble charity of a Christian heart. This alone brings the peace of God which surpasseth all understanding. In thin wa.y life is freed from that cankerworm of care that eats "away cheerfulness and joy. If worldly prosperity comes honestly and by God's will, it is a real blessing to be used for tlis glory and the benefit of humanity; and if it does not come, !something else doescome, a million I times more ,p'.ecious, and that is the I cahn contentment of mind and heart in the knowledge that, having done our duty in this life i high or low position, a just God and most loving Father keeps constant watch over our daily trials and successes , notes strictly how achievements and crosses are borne and stands ready at the gate of Eternity to render the mblime reward for lives passed in His service. May God bleU the children of this portion of His Vineyard; may He lay His hand on their little heads and draw their tender little hearts to His Sacred Heart, so tha they, may be- come a source of consolation to their parents in school and at home, that the lessons they are now learning may prepare them, not only for this life, but also fit them for the'glorious ple eserved for them in Heaven.
