Martyrdom Still Continue very day before Mr. Calles~ this message, his agents at not many miles from Mexico put to death, under conditions revolting a large number of for no other reason their Catholic Faith. Calles declares that his de- of last year is nothing more a restatement of Article 130 of Constitution. He makes no those who challenge the val- or Article 130, because it is ttible with other provisions of Constitution. He makes no to the millions ofMexican ci- in petitions to Congress, sought by legal methods to about the amendment of that which they hold to be tyran- and arbitrary, a violation of ha- rights which every law-making is bound to respect because they endowment which from his Creator, makes no answer to by eminent jurists in that his decree is a violation Article 130, placing unwar- limitation on the liberty of assembly, subjecting worship to restrictions nat inte~pre- the Constitution, extending property rights of the Stirred up over the organizations intention of concentrating its efforts on having the New York State Legis- lature enact a "tight-Sunday" law, State Senator Benjamin Antin of the 22nd Senatorial District, the Bronx, last Monday made public a letter he sent to the Lords Day Alliance, stat- ing he would fight any measure ad- vocated by that body to "shackle" the people of the Empire State with "blue reform." Senator Antin's let- ter in part said: "As one of the legislators of this State who shall have an opportunity Go vote on any measure you advo- cate, I hasten to assure you that I shall fight these with all my strength and power. "You speak of the increase of crim- inal statistics. We deplore these as much as you do. But any psychi- atrist will tell you that the answer is not to be found in more blue laws. Why don't you take this fund you are raising and give it to the child wel- fare agencies, to the cause of better playgrounds and to more education? Has it never occurred to you~that the place to wage war in order to relieve crime is on ignorance and poverty, no child labor and social injustice? Criticism of Prohibition "Today all thinking men stand in awe before the staggering results of Prohibition, which has exalted the bootlegger to the estate of wealth, murdered drinkers with poisoned rum and produced a disregard and even a contempt for law which shocks us.' Representatives of the recently formed Sunday Amusement League of Baltimore have started a vigorous campaign throughout the Monument- al City and in Western Maryland in an effort to enlist support of the or- ganizations purpose of having the Sunday blue-laws repealed. John G. Callan, a member of the Maryland House of Delegates, and a charter member of the league, said yester- day that the general response hai been "exceptionally favorable." Mr. Callan asserted that the league was determined to obtain the 10,000 names necessary to a petition to put the subject on the ballot. "If)" he added, "the associations that are opposed to an open Sunday really believe that the people of Baltimore are in favor of the Sunday blue laws and want a closed Sunday, they should welcome the referendum. It would prove their case.' All members of the Maryland leg- islature will be invited to the league to express their views on the repeal of the Sunday "blue laws' at a pic- nic to be given by the league on September 18. Opponents Denounce Campaign Decrying the activities of those in favor of having Congress enact Sunday closing legislation for'. the District of Columbia, the National Association Opposed to Blue Laws last week vigorously denounced the Lord's Day Alliance, and its asso- ciates, for the "war chest' which it alleges, is being raised to "further such aims." "Never in American history has the 'bigotry lobby' been so tyran- nical and arrogant as today." said Dr. Joseph A. Themper, national president Of the anti-blue law asso-] elation, in calling for a "united ~ont against blue laws," and parti-[ cularly for solidified ,opposition to the Lankford "District blue law." Continuing Dr. Themper said: "As our speakers have so consist- ently pointed out in addresses before the McLeod Subcommittee of the District of Columbia Committee of the House of Representatives for th~ past couple of years, the enactment of a Sunday blue law for Washing- ton would be the entering wedge for similar statutes from Maine to Cali- fornia "The modification of the Lank~ford bill in April, 1927, to permit Sunday] matinees but forbid Sunday evening shows, is a "sample of the adaptabili- ty in the tactics employed by the Sunday closing schemers. It was frankly admitted that this was done only because the original draft of the Lankford bill could not pass, but that if the milder measure should be enacted, it was intended to fight in the coming session for a ruthlessly fanatical bill that would ban every activity on the first day of the week except church worship and a few al- lied occupations. Expects Harder Fight "In the next Congress the effort to put Washington in a Sunday straight-jacket is to be renewed, and it now appears that all c6mpromise will be abandoned, with the Lord's Day Alliance fighting tooth and nail for a law that is reminiscen~ of Salem witchcraft and the heresy hunters of long ago." In another statement issued by Linn A. E. Gale, secretary-treasurer of the same organization, declared: "Blind ignorance and savage in- tolerance have united in a desperate determination to establish in America the dictatorship of bigots. In some States they have partially succeeded. They intend to succeed in every State. They intend to spare neither money nor labor until they have i~n- posed a reign of terror under which playing or seeing baseball, exhibiting or attending a theatrical entertain- ment, or engaging other pleasurable and beneficial diversion on Sunday will be a crime resulting in drastic MORE ANTI.IRISH FILMS COMINGt Despite Protests Three Others Are Said to Be on Way. Notwithstanding all the protests made by Irish organizations and in- dividuals, the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Corporation and the Loew theatres are still presenting the anti-Irish moving picture, "The Callahans and the Murphys,' wherever it'is possi- ble to do so, and in many places under police protection. Meanwhile, other" pictures along similar lines are being pushed for- ward to completion. These include "Bringing Up Father,' "The Life of R~illy" and "Eas~ Side, West side," "Bringing Up Father" features Marie Dressler and Polly Moran, the two "stars" who appear m "The Cal- lahans and the Murphys," as re- spectively, Mrs. Murphy and Mrs. Callahan. "East Side, West Side" is said to be nearly completed. It is evident that "The Callahans and the Murphys" and "Irish Hearts" are but the forerunners of a series of pictures holding up the Irish people to ridicule and con- tempt. Unless a definite and united stand is taken against the vile caricatures, penalties, the Irish people in America and the "The scattered cases of arrests, world over must reconcile them- fines and jailings for doing perfect-]selves to being lampooned on the ly nermal things on the first day of moving picture screens for years to the week have ceased to be a joke or a curious example of the workings of the over-sanctified mind. They have become widespread enough to con- stitute a serious menace.' Trouble In Kansas To define the meaning of Sunda:p when a one's Sabbath falls on Satur- day is proving perplexing to certain motion picture operators in Arkansas City. A day on which picture houses may be operated come. The protests to date, while not suf- ficient to impress upon the producers the necessky of confining themselves to decency in their productions, have thrown a considerable scare into them. As a result it is probable that these coming films will to some ex- tent be camouflaged. Boston, Jersey C|ty, Newark, Bayonne. and all of Quebec, were some additional places where the authorities acted last week. To depict an Irish scene a wooden despite Sunday obser- shanty was erected in a vacant lot on that day. week as the Sabbath. No commun- icant of a religion observing any oth- er day, he argues, can be forced to altar his normal activities on Sunday. All the theater's employes are Jews or Seventh Day Adventists, holding Saturday to be the ordined day of rest. Nevertheless, the city officials are proceeding with plans for prosecu- tion. EXPERTS OF VATICAN LIBRARY REACH U. S. New York (N. C. W. C.)---Msgr. Giorfia Benedetti, the Rev. Carlo Scala and Professors Giordano Ignio and Gerordo Bruni, the four repre- sentatives of the Vatican Library, who have come to study the American I library system have arrived in New, York. Msgr. Benedetti and Father Sdala will go direct to thq Boston Public Library, while Professor Bruni and Ignio will study the library sys- tem at the University of Michigan. Referring to the great library of the Vatican which is to be catalogued and indexed by the Carnegie Foun- dation for International Peace, Fath- er Scala said: "We receive books from all over the world and file them irrespective of their nature, letting time itself decide their value to the world." so intense that the combatants could not be separated until the shanty fell on them. The young men were paid $1 each for their stunt. The women and children who had crowded the fire escapes around the vacant lot applauded the row. They got 25 cents each for their pains. This is only one scene in the ~-al- gar play in which the Irish are de- picted as uncivilized, degraded, un- ruly citizens. Further work on this picture has been delayed pending the outcome of the protests against "The Callahans and the Murphys' and "Irish Hearts." SIXTY-THREE BISHOPS TO ATTEND ANNUAL MEETING AT~ C. U.
