We MEDICAL MISSIONS COMMITTEE ADOPTS A PLAN OF ACTION (By N. C. W. C. News Service) New York, Sept. 8. A mr)st impo'r- tant conference of the Medical Mis- sions (,ommlttee o:f thc Catholic lh s- pital Association was hehl at tim Col- lege or Mr. St. Vincent in this city recently. Every lnembcr of the coln- mittee which consists of Dr. ['. ,l. Flagg, Chairman; Rt. Rev. Msgr. Jo.. F. McGlinchey, D. D.; Rev. Michael Mathis, C. S. C., S. T. D.; Rev. Ih'uno llagspiel. S. V. I).; Rev. M. Thoma:. R. M. M.; Rev. Frank A. Thill, aml Mr. Floyd Kceter, was present at all se;sion:, l)etailed surveys of vuriou: foreign mission fields were prcs(mted by Msgr. MeGlinchey, Dr. Mathis and Fr. Tholnas fl'oln personal observa- tions. These will be publi,,hed serially in "Hospital Progress, '' the official of gan of the Association, and latin re- published as pamphlets to aid in sln'e'l(ting the medical misxion need. A definite plan of action was adopt- ed, endorsing the establishmen,: of medical units of the Catholic Students' Mission Crusade in all Catholic *rain- cal colleges enrolling Catholic stu- dents. Special medical mission IHera- ing schools for nurses and in all medi- ture, in addition to the surveys above mentioned, will be prepared by mem- bers,of the committee to aid in ealb;t- ing these units and in educating the American Catholic public concerning the work of Catholic Medical Mis- sions. Under this phm the Ho,oital Association's Committee will act as a clearing house for connecting appli- cants for medical missions with ntis- sion societies which are seeking such aid, whether in the home or foreign fields. It will endeavor'furtimr to make known the material nee(b: of medical missions and to aid in supply- ing these needs as far as possible. hear little of this, however. They pass on, and rarely is there a word of thanks for the courtesy extended to themselves and their friemls. "The detained are of two classes: I .."1.--Those whose relatives are not on hands to claim them; tllose short l of funds to continue their journey, and those whose accompanying rela-: rives have been sent to the hospital. "2.--Immigrants held for special inquiry. They are the physically and mentally unfit illiterates; and those who have come in violation of the contract labor law. They consti-' tute a very small percent of the immigrants, but they are a h)t of the fuss. "The excluded invariably resent being detained. They air and ex- aggerate the inconvenience and get a certain satisfaction from doing so. "The new Commissioner, Mr. Cur- ran, has made an excellent record, both as a New York City official,and as an officer in the United States Army. He may be relied upend.., ta maintain the high standards of his predecessor; Mr. Ted. Like Mr. Ted, too, he is kind and human and dis- posed to temper justice with mercy in lis .dealings with the immigrant. There is n6t the slightest reason to believe that he is unfriendly toward aliens from the British Isles or else- where. "The difficulty is not with the im- migration officials, the food or the detention quarters. It is to be r,'aced GUARDIAN, SATURDAY, SEPT. 15, 1923.
