Father Considine continued: "Hence, let us propose that an ideal organization for the distribution of Catholic information would be (1) One that would take its primary im- pulse from the strong moral support of the Hierarchy; (2) One that would be maintained financially by the Catholic people as one of the princi-. pal activities of Catholic Action; (3) One that would be under the techni- cal direction of able Catholic jour- nalists; and (4) One that would be assured the co-operation of all organs of the Catholic Press, which, in turn, it would serve to the utmost; remain- ing free, however, to undertake also other press activities of advantage to the Church.

Michaud, Vicar Apostolic of Tabors, for the White Fa'thers' educational center at Tabora: "I am more than satisfied with the progress during the year since my last visit, and particularly with the metic- ulous care with which suggestions made last year have been adopted. "As regards the industrial shop, I have nothing but praise. T,he pres- ent standard of drawing is remark- able. The handwork is excellertt. "There is ample evidence of hard work in connection with outdoor ac- tivities, and if the enthusiasm which has characterized the beginning is mantained, there can be but little doubt tha this school will hold a prominent position amongst the lead- ing educational institutions in ~he ter. ritory."
