The work of the colored Oblate Sis- ters of Providence, who maintain schools in Washington, Baltimore, Charleston,' S. C., and Cuba, was ex- plained by Bishop Corrigan, auxiliary Bishop of Baltimore. Plans were formed and a committee named to take action to erect a seminary for the training of negro aspirants to the priesthood, and also for a technical school for Catholic negroes in the South. Welfare Council Departments. It was toward the close of the after'- noon session that the reports of the chairmen of the' various cpmmittees and Mepartments of the i National Catholic Welfare Council were read. Most Reverend Edward J. Hanna, D.D., Archbishop of San Francisco, is: the chairman of the Administrative Committee. Its other members are Most Rev. Dennis J. Dougherty, chair- man Department of Law and Legis- lation; Most Rev. Austin Dowling, St. Paul, chairman Department of Edu- cation; Rt. Rev. P. J. Muldoon, vice- chairman Administrative Committee and chairman Department of Social Action; Rt. Rev. Joseph Schrembs chairman Department of Lay Organi- zations; Rt. Rev. J. F. Regis Canevin; Rt. Rev. William T. Russell, chair- man Department Publicity, Press and Literature, and Rev. John J. Burke C.S.P., General Secretary. Archbi#hop Haniia's Report• In substance, Archbishop Hanna's report covered a country-wide .,work of the five departments of the Na- tional Catholic Welfare Council. He showed, in brief yet clear outline, how these well organized nation-wide de- partnents, touching every source and dealing with]every problem of Catho- lic life, had, been effectively co-ordin- ated by the Executive Department, his own immediate departments, with na- tional headquarters at Washington, D.C. The Archbishop sketched several characteristic instances of the com- munity work lready accomplished by the Council, and pictured the 'broader lines of its activity, in immigration work, girls protective wrk, commun- ity and civic centers, educational in- terests rural, problems, legislation and the extension Of the teaching mis- sion of the Church through various forms of press activities. Educational Recommendations. Archbishop Dowling, chairman of the Department of Education, in re- porting as t'o the work so far accom- plished, said that the Bureau of Edu- cation which is to be established at Washington had been directed to se- cure complete information regarding proposed Federal and State legisla- tion affecting education, and to fur- ish such information to the bishops, school superintendents, supervisors of teaching communities and others con- cerned. It is also to undertake the work of educating the public, Catholic and non-Cgtholic, upon the aims and nature of Catholic education. The following were the chief recom, mendations made to the Hierarchy for the work of the Department of Edu- ,cation during the coming year:. First, that a general survey be made of the present condition of Cath- olic schools. Thorough Prelgaration of Teachers. , Second, that measures be taken for the more thorough preparation of teachers in 'all Catholic institutions, so that there may be an efficient body to carry out the directions of the Iierarchy. Courses of education in seminaries and community training schools, and normal training of teach- era' for elementary schools are espe- cially desirable measures. Third ,that laymen be encouraged to take a larger share in Catholic edu- cation work, especially as teachers. Fourth, that measures be taken to solve the problems of rural and negro education. Ho 'Catholics Should Aci. Fifth, that in defining the Catholic attitude towards measures for State and Federal control, Catholics should give the minimum of complaint and of opposition to such movements. They should discriminate between the things they can accept and those which they cannot accept---and then confine their opposition to the latter. Meeting Adverse Situations. Sixth, that a part 'of' the work of the Bureau of Education be to ,outline a policy on the position of the Church in educational matters with, a view to meeting situations like those .which have arisen in Michigan and Nebraska and in the Smith-Towner Bill, as well as in other forms of opposition to Catholic educational interests, and to carry on a propaganda by means of pamphlets and lectures to further these same ends. Social Action Work. Right Reverend Peter J. Muldoon, D.D., Bishop of Rockford, Ill., and chairman of the Department of So- cial Action, reported the operations of the Social Action Department since its organization last March. The rec- ord was an impressive one. In a pe- riod of six months more than one hundred and twenty-five lectures were delivered under its auspices in Catho- lic schools, seminaries and summer sessions and approximately twenty- five thousand auditors were reached. ,Fifteen important conferences of na- tional organizations were attended by representatives of the department and five books are now being published. In addition, a weekly bulletin service on welfare activities was supplied to the Catholic papers and two pamph- lets were published. Right Citizenship of Immigrants. "One of the greatest problems of the Church in this country," declares the report, "is the development of right citizenship, especially the newly arrived. All the non-Catholic social and welfare agencies are at present enlarging their plans to reach these i people. Some of these agencies also plan to wean Catholic immigrants away from the Church. These ob- servations apply to the large number of Mexicans who are entering the United States as well as to arrivals from Europe." Catholic Hospital Association.- .... Another important part of the So- cial Action Department's report deals with the Catholic Hospital Associa- tion of the United States and Canada, which organized in 1915, placed itself under the National Catholic Welfare Council and was assigned to the Social Action Department. Four hundred and thirty-three of the six hundred and fifty Catholic hospitals of the United States and Canada are mem- bers of this association which aims to bring about unity of action in the large body of Catholic sisters en- gaged in hospital work and strength- en and improve their services. Close cooperation with the American Col- lege of Surgeons is planned by the Catholic Hospital Association. Rural Activities to Help Farmers. Notable among the recommenda- tions for the extension of the work of the Social Action Department-- recommendation mapped out at a con- ference attended by Dr. John A. Ryan, Director of the Social Action Bureau, and more than a dozen ,prominent priests and laymen who are members of the Executive Committee--were those which call for the development of rural activities to help increase the number of Catholic farmers, the or- ganization of social study clubs, and the selection of texts and programs for their use, the encouragement of lecture courses in parishes and so- cieties and the encouragement of co- qperative societies among farmers and consumers. Program of Lay Organizations. The Bishops approved the report or" Right Rev. Joseph Schrembs,, Director of the Department of Lay Organiza- tions, which recounted the formation of the National Council of Catholic Men ,and outlined its program of ac- tivities. The plans which the new Council is to carry into effect contemplate the founding and maintenance of a nation- al training school in which laymen will be prepared to perform social service; machinery for handling the immigrant problem; the inauguration of civic centers for Catholic lyoung i men; the care of the adolescent boy; f / TItE GUARDIAN, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 2, 1920. ,i the fostering of the "Big Brother Movement" and like activities; the de- velopment of the Catholic Boy Scout Troops, which were initiated by the National Catholic War Council, and the establishmeht of international re- lations with the Catholic societies of other countries. Affiliation of All Societies. It is proposed to accomplish the "af- filiation of all Catholic men's socie- ties with the Men's Council, and to make the parochial unit the basis of the national organization. These units will then be brought together into diocesan councils which will have pew- er to institute district or municipal organizations, so that populous cen- ters may be subdivided within dio- cesan boundaries. The diocesan councils under the plan submitte(l will be entitled to elect representatives to the National con- vention on the basis of at least three delegates for each, with one additional for every 50,000 members. The na- tional bodies of Catholic men's socie- ties will have the right to three dele- gates to the national convention. The sessions of the National Coun- cil of Men will be held next Wednes- day and Thursday in the National Catholic Community House, 601 E Street, N. W., Washington, September 29 and 30. Press and Publitity Showing• The report made by Right Rev. William T. Russell, D.D., chairman of the Department of Publicity, Press and Literature, covered the details of the work of this bureau during the last year. In particular, Bishop Rus- sell reviewed the course of the New Service established six months ago, showing that there are now 56 sub: scribers to this service. Twenty-three of these subscribe to the foreign cable sewice in addition to the domestic news service. Correspondents have been appointed in Rome, London, Paris, Dublin, Berlin, Vienna, Prague, New York, Chicago, Washington, and elsewhere. In addition to the News Service a service of editorials and special fea- ture article has also been inaugur- ated,and plans are now under consid- eration for the gradual extension of all the branches of this department. The conference adjourned at noon till September, 1921. Most of the Hierarchy took part in the ceremony :of the laying of the foundation stone of the National Shrine of the Immacu- late Conception in the afternoon--a ceremony which was a fitting close to an occasion which marked an epoch in American Catholic life and history.

Oxford, Sept. 20.--The failure of the Protestant church to retain its hold on the men of the present day, was the subject of an address deliv- ered in the University of Oxford, be- fore a gathering of members of a so- ciety known as Modern Churchmen. The indictment was all the more re- markable because the speaker, Pro- fessor Jevons, holds a high position ality and the Divine. This final conclusion was palatible to the Modern Churchmen who are, in the last resort, the "direct actionists" of the Protestant theory of private judgment, which is tim very revolt against which the learned Doctor brought his indictment.

A Church that bases itself on authority can not countenance re- volts against authority, but some of its members might be led to ask them- selves whether religion pure and un- defiled is based on authority, or whether it is the expression of a love which could not be exacted by any authority which seeks to escape from the trammels of self, and so far as it succeeds in escaping constitutes the bond which unites the human person- for ............ year's subscription to THE Beginning with .......... issue.
