C. W. C. News Service.) Paris, Sept. 15.--Cardinal Amette's will, found among his papers, has been made public. Following is the edifying text: "I hereby declare that I wish to die in the Faith of our Holy Mother, the Catholic, Apostolic and Roman Church, and in utnmst and filial sub- mission to Its august Chief, Our Holy Father the PoPe. "I offer to the Lord my life for the time when it may be His wish to take it, in union with the sacrifice of my beloved Jesus Christ to His intentions in calling me to the priesthood and to the episcopacy and particularly for the salvation of the Souls entrusted to my sacerdotal ministry and episco- pal office. "I express my thanks to all who have been good to me, who have af- forded me their help and have sup-i ported me with their affection. I recommend myself earnestly to their prayers and those of all the Souls, of whom the Lord made me the Father or the Pastor, and I promise not to forget them if He shall receive me in His Paradise. "I beg the pardon of all I may have either offended or grieved and I my- self forgive, from all my heart, all who may have hurt me in any way, just as I myself do beseech the Lord to forgive me the faults I may have been guilty of. "Given at Paris in the octave of the Assumption of the Holy Virgin Mary whom I do beseech to present me to her Divine Son when I enter Etern- ity." Leon-Adolph, Cardinal Amette, Archbishop of Paris AMERICAN LIFE'S IRRELIGION IS SCORED BY PRIEST (By N. C W. C News Sez-ice.) Philadelphia, Sept. 20.--Eight thou- sand members of the Holy Name So- cieties of the archdiocese of Phila- delphia heard the Very Rev M. J. Ripple, director general of the Holy Name Unison, denounce the irreligion of American life in an impressive ser- mon preached here on the occasion of the annual reunion of the diocesan organizations at Willow Grove. Among tle distinguished guests who spoke were Admiral Benson,the Rev. Francis P. Duffy, of New York, chap- lain of the Sixty-ninth Regiment, the Right Rev. Monsignor James P. Tur- ner of Philadelphia and the Rev. F. X. Curram "Startling as it may seem," said Father Ripple, "the fact is, according to thg government's own census re- port, that sixty out of every one hun- dred Americans have no religion at all. It can be seen by these figures what a w'onderfully fertile field an- archy and its wild-eyed agents have to worl in. "The great work of the Hol$ Name Union is to conquer this irreligion and consequently to combat tle three ma- jor evils--pride, avarice and hixury which are sending the world to hell spiritually, morally, politically and commercially. We have all the high philosophical theories of socialism and other things we want, but down under the uproar and suffering and poverty those three basic sins lie at the roots. There never was uch a deluge of im- morality and profligacy as we are gazing upon today." '' I RECEPTION TO RUTH AND ST. MARY'S BAND (By N. C W. C. News Service.) Baltimore, Sept. 24.--"Babe" Ruth and the boys band of St. Mary's In- dustrial School continued their trium- phant tour of the American League cities with a special stop-off here yes- terday. There was a baseball game in the afte'rnoon and a public concert and mass meeting in the Fifth Regi- ment Armory at nighL\\; More than $0,000 for the St. Mary's rebuilding fund was raised at\\; the meeting. The home run king pledged $2,500 and pledges for'similar amounts were made on behalf of His Eminence Cardinal Gibbons and Bish- op Owen B. Corrigan of Baltimore. In the afternoon the New York team lined up a benefit game against Jack Dunn's Baltimore Orioles and met defeat, 1 'to 0. Ruth was no help to his teammates. He struck out twice. The St. Mary's band, which is touring the eight cities in the Ameri- can League, left last night for New York, where it will appear at the Polo Grounds. Little Rock, Arkansas, Saturday, October 2, 1920 Arch-Bishops and Bishops l In Second Annual Meetiu00l iTAKE ACTION IN REGARD TO A NUMBER OF MATTERS OF THE HIGHEST IMPORT- ANCE BOTH TO CHURCH AND COUNTRY EFFECTING THE SPIRITUAL, INTELLEC- TUAL AND MATERIAL WELL-BEING OF CITIZENS IN GENERAL.

(By N C. W. C News Service.) Washington, D. C., Sept. 23.--The Archbishops and Bishops of the Cath- olic Church in the United States brought their second annual meeting to a close at noon today at the Catho- lic University after taking action in regard to a number of matters of the highest importance both to the Church and to the country. Nation-wide Appeal. First and foremost ,they authorized the Administrative Committee of the National Catholic ,Welfare Council to proceed immediately with the forma- tion of a plan for a nation-wide ap- peal to the Catholic clergy and laity to cooperate in raising a fund for the permanent support or endowment of the work of the National Catholic Welfare Council. All the committee arid the officials of the Welfare Coun- cil were re-elected as were also the officers of the Board of Foreign Mis- sions. Most Rev. Archbishop D. J. Dougherty of Philadelphia was added to the*latter. Budgets Approved. Secondly, the budgets of the five de- partments of the Council for the com- ing year were approved, and it was decided that the necessary funds for the coming year will be provided di- rectly by the Hierarchy, as was done during the past year. Expansion and Development. Thirdly, the recommendations con- tained in the reports of the chairmen of the five departments of the Nation- al Catholic Welfare Council for the expansion and development of their various lines of work were approved, and action will be taken at once to proceed with these most important reasures. New Effective Steps. Fourthly, in addition to the steps taken by the Hierarchy affecting the National Catholic Welfare Council, a large numDer of important measures of high geAeral interest and value to the Catholic people, both clergy and laity, were taken up by the Archbish- ops and Bishops in the course of their two days' meeting, measures affecting the spiritual, intellectual and mate- rial well-being not only of Catholics but of citizens generally The unique and supreme import- ance of this meeting of the Hierarchy may be judged from the fact that it was called to consider the more im- portant needs of the entire Catholic Church throughout the United States The National Catholic Welfare Coun- cil is the Hierarchy of the .United States. Under it are organized six great departments: The Executive Department, with headquarters at Washington, which is headed by a General Secretary and made up of representatives of the five  other de- partments; the Press and Publicity, Education, Social' Action and Lay Or- ganizations departments, the latter embracing' the National Council of Catholic Men and the National Court-. cil of Catholic Women.

The work of the meeting began with prayer for the Divine guidance, after which the minutes of last year's meet- ,,,,ing were read. It will. be recalled ::=-ast year's meeting was the first sgeneral conference of the American Council of Baltimore, held in 1884, more than thirty-four years ago, the more than htirty-four years ago, the only survivor of that historic event being the venerable primate of the Clmrch in the United States, James Cardinal Gibbons. At last yeas meeting was issued the joit PastorM ,etter of the Hierarchy, which gave forth the message of the Church to the distracted world, anl which aroused nation-wide discussion and general approval. Decisions at First Day's Session. Chief among the decisions reached during the first day was one to unify all foreign and domestic mission in- terests and enterprises of the Catho- lic Church in the United States un- der the direction of the Catholic Board of Foreign Missions, of which Archbishop Henry. Moeller, DD., of Cincinnati, is chairman. Canonization of Mother Ston. The promotion of the cause tel an American for the honor of canoniza- tion was considered at the meeting. At the last general conference, held a year ago, Cardinal Gibbons was re- quested to convey to the ecclesiastical authorities at Rome the unanimous desire of the American Hierarchy for the canonization of Mother Elizabeth Seton, foundress of the Sisters of C//arity in the United States. Card- inal Gibbons announced yesterday he had placed the matter in the hands of Cardinal Vie0, secretary of the Con- gregation of Rites. Midnight Mass and Communion at Christmas. Another important announcemen  was that all archbishops and bishop, had authority to grant permission tc their priests to celebrate midnight (Continued on Page 8.) POPE SAYS IRISII ARE PEOPLE DEAR TO HIS HEART (By N. C. W. C. News Service.) Dublin, Sept. 15.--Notable words were spoken at Tipperary by the Most Rev. Dr. Harty, Archbmhop of Cashel. Beseeching the people to "do nothing that could in the slightest degree tar- nish the grand old Catholic Faith," he said that he was well aware of the provocation they endured from the tyranny of a foreign government, but that nevertheless they must counten- ance nothing that would be a viola- tion of the Law of God. "That," he went on, "was the ad- vice I received from the Holy Father, who said that the people of Ireland, while working for the glory and free- dom of their country, should anxiously keep withih the limits of the law which God laid down. The Pope sym- pathizes keenly with us in our strug- gle for the uplifting of our race. He has sent, through me, a mesage of hope and encouragement. His Holi- ness declares the Irish to be the most faithful nation, and a people re'oat dear to his heart." The Archbishop observed that there was a lofty spirit in Ireland today, engendering patriotism and self-re- liance. It was in equal parts Catholic and Irish. His Grace dwelt on the fact that in Irish history whenever there was a special outburst of pa- triotic zeal, it went hand in hand with a corresponding attachment to the old ancestral Faith. 400 ARMENIANS CORRALLED IN CHURCH AND BURNED TO DEATH (By N. C. W. C. News Service.) Constantinople, Sept. 7.The mas- sacre of Christians in Asia Minor, by the rebels under the Turkish so-called Nationalist Mustapha Kemal, gives every sign of retching reater and more grave proportions. "Racial dis- tinctions appear to have nothing what- ever to do with the massacres, but it is striking that by far the greater part of the Christians put to death are Armenians. Church Burned, The latest massacre, of which relia- ble reports have come in, is stated to have taken place at the village of Boll, in northwest Anatolia. Some 1,000 Kurds, under the leadership of Mustapha Kemal's officers, made a raid on the vilhlge and rounded up the men and,women, whom they di- vided off into two sections. The men were shot, but the women and chil- dren were driven into the village church which was set on fire, andall those inside burned to death. The to- tal number of those put to death in this village is said to have been at least 400, though the number" may have been much higher. Ferocious Murder. The ferocity of these murders of Christians is likely to be since Mustapha Kemal has reformed his Nationalist troops under the name of the Senoussi army, which is noth- ing more than a deliberate attempt to draw over to his side the most fero- cious and powerful of the Mohamme- dan sects. The Senoussis, who were founded by one Sayed Mohammed in 1800, are a kind of Mohammedan heretics, who are distinguished by the cruelty wth which they seek "to spread their ceed. \\;The movement has become very wide spread, and its adherents nay be found from'Fez to Constantinople,: and from India to Da- mascus. The influence and the" mis- sionary zeal of the Senoussis are something to be reckoned with, and as they are of the nature of a secret society their affiliations are found throughout the Moslem world. One of their most striking features is their bitter hatred of all forms of Christianity, and it is under the 'Se- noussi banner that Mustapha Kemal already a formidable persecutor of the Christian people, in Asia Minor, has reorganized the forces under his com- mand in his campaign of massacreing Christians. REV. T. F. COAKLEY, DIRECTOR OF CHARITIES IN PITTSBURG, RESIGNS (By N. C. W, C. News Service.) Pittsburg, Sept. 24.--Rev. Thomas F. C0akley has resigned as Assist- ant Director of Catholic Charities of ':he Diocese of Pittsburg, and has just been appointed rector of the oldest Catholic parish in the city, St. Pat- rick's, Liberty avenue and Seven- teenth street, in the heart of the 4owntown section, near the Union D@ot. \\; Number 16 CATHOLIC CLAIMS TO BE JUDGED AT THE HAGUE HON. ELIHU ROOT IS TO SIT IN JUDQMENT UPON CLAIMS OF CATHOLIC CITIZENS. (By N. C. W. C. News Service.) Amsterdam, Sept. 15.--The visit of the Hen. Elihu Root to the Hague has a special interest for Catholics, since the eminent American statesman is to sit  in judgment in an affair that has an enormously vital pplication to Catholic interests. The International Arbitration Board, which is sitting at The Hague, and on the council of which Mr. Root will occupy a prominent place, is to hear and judge upon claims, brought by Catholic citizens of the United States, Great Britain and France against the Republican Government of Portugal. Seized Church Property. It is vcell known that after the as- sassinationt of the Catholic President, Sidoneo Paes, the Republicans who seized the reigns of power in the country, not only imprisoned the sup- porters of Paes, but adopted extreme- ly stringent measures against the clergy generally, especially the mem- bers of the religious orders, whom they accused of being implicated in a plot to restore the Portuguese Mon- archy. Partly owing to these meas- ures, but more particularly owing to the measures for the disestablishment and disendowment of tim Catholic Church in Portugal, which were passed, into law in 1910, the State took over all the property of the and passed regulations the clergy similar to those in France under the notorious Combes in 1904. American Priests Put In Claims. The result, of all this is that the Goverrment has seized all church property and among it a great deal that never did belong to Portuguese ciUzens The American, British and French priests, whose property has been stolen by the State have put in claims for its return, on the ground that the Government has no power to seize the property of foreigners resi- dent in the country. The adjudication of these claims is now before the International Arbitra- tion Board and Mr. Root will be among the adjudicators who will de- cid, e whether, and in what degree, this property is to be restored to its right- ful owners. SUNDAY DAY OF REST MOVEMENT IN FRANCE (By N. C. W. C. News Service.) Paris, Sept. 12.--A group of Catho- lic members of the Chamber of Depu- ties is fostering a movement to pro- pose a motion that will make Snday rest obligatory for all newspapers, and it is expected that it will be dis- cussed at the October sessions. It ha4 been hoped that a friendly agre)ement would be reached among the' Paris newspapers whereby all employees of the press would be allowed to rest on Sunday, but the agreement -was wrecked by the opposition of some of the directors and only two or three Catholic papers have "discontinueff work on that day. PAROCHIAL SCHOOLS ARE APPROVED BY GOVERNOR GARDNER (By N. C. W. C. News Service.) Jefferson City, Me., Sept. 20.State dictation to parents on the question of what schools they will send their chil- dren to is opposed by Governor Fred- erick D. Gardner of Missouri, accord- ing to a statement given out by him in reply to the question of an eastern magazine as to his opinion concern- ing the proposed constitutional amendment in Michigan abolishing parochial schools. Governor Gardner replied as follows: "PersonaJly I area strong advocaf of the public schools. Yet I would be opposed to any arendmettof the Missouri Constitt|tion providing for the abolition of te parochial schbols. This is a great free country of ours and people have a right to send their clildrn to anyschools they please or to any church they wish. I should disapprove the idea of the State at- tempting to dictate to parents as t@ whether they should send their' chil- dren to public or parochial schools."
