Boston, Oct. 3.--Lucien H. Mayer, for the "Boston Globe" intelwiewed Prof. Felix Frankfurter, professor of administrative law at Harvard, a writer and student of social affairs. In his study at the Harvard Law School, to which he returned yester- day, Prof. Frankfurter spread forth three months' observation in Euro- pean countries. Although he went abroad to attend the Zionist conference in London with Justice Brandeis and others, his trav- els carried him far afield to Paris, Berlin, Vienna and Prague. The British people, he declared are eager for a settlement of the Irish question and more willing to make concessions than ever bhfore, voicing a protest which, it would seem, must soon bring about a determination of the issue. On the Continent, he found the dominant factor the 'rising conscious- ness of the workers," which he inter- preted chiefly as a protest against the Polish aggression toward Russia. Political and labor leaders are agreed, he said, that a permanent peace must depend upon bringing Russia back into the current of life, a peace which I need not involve recognition, but will permit Russia to evolve her own ways of life. France alone stands in the pitch of such a policy, he said. Want stalks in the communities of the old Central Empires; children die of undernourishment; business is a gamble in exchange. Want irish Question Settled. Concerning the Irish question he said: "There are two things that partic- ularly impress me as to the Irish question and the ritish popular re- gard for it. One of these is the con- viction of British people, by and large, that the problem should be settled, and must be settled soon. There is a growing passiofi among those who think on these problems for a solu- tion that will end the controversy once for all. It is a subject that stirs their lives; everybody thinks and talks about it. "They realize, among other things, that these everlasting differences be- tween England and Ireland are a con- stant irritant to the friendship be- tween England and the United States and will be a bar to the best friendly I relations until there is a satisfactory settlement. For example, mdny peo- ple asked us as to the American atti- tude toward the Britishwhether there was American hostility and anti-British sentimeht. In this sense the Irish question is vital to them. It poisons their lives. They literally are clamoring for a settlement. Sinn Fein and Violence. "Nobody there now thinks Sinn Fein and violence are synonymous not even the London Times. The Times waged a very effective cam- paign for the pardon of Lord Mayor MacSwiney and in behaff of Archbish= op Mannix. They sMd that the Gov- ernment was a fool not to allow Arch- bishop Mannix to land in Ireland. That certainly is getting away from the old Tory idea of a shotgun or a jail for everyone who doesn't do as they wish. Why Raids? "I talked with Judges of the High Court, men of sober temper of mind and these people are even mystified 'at such proceedings at Attorney Gen- eral Palmer's Red raids. They can't understand it. Why right in Hyde Park, London, there is more wild tuff ,preached to the populace every night with tall English bobbies staring ami- ably at the speakers; and everybody stands around, has a good time and then goes home. All England More Liberal. "And so, getting back to the Irish question, all England is more liberal toward it. The general feeling, I think, runs toward Dominion status of some sort, and the people are will- ing to go that far. Archbishop Mannix Right. "The only question' is: What does that mean ?  I though Archbishop Mannix put it very nicely this morn- ing when he said that if England would only be definite and state her position he thought Ireland might be m a receptive mood. "Certainly the English people want to settle their differences with Ireland and that augurs well for the future. You would be surprised how much further they would go than two years ago. Ehgland Needs Ireland. THE GUARDIAN; SATURDAY, OCTOBER 9, 1920. II PAGE THREE hostile Nation would be like having a dagger pointed close to one's heart. Therefore their minds do not now con- template her as a republic." Dominant Factor in Europe. In Europe as a whole, Prof. Frank- furter stated, the "dominant factor to- day is the rising consciousness of the workers." This he attributed partly to the economic disruption and gen- eral reassessment of human rights re- sulting from the World War and part- ly--very largely--to a thorough un- derstanding of the Russo-Polish con- flict and a revolt against the Polish campaign of aggression. Polish Situation. How many people but will think you a champion of Bolshevism wimn you tell the real truth about the Pol- ish situation ? "Unless you understand this, you can't understand the attitude of the workers. These things have penetrat- ed to their minds now. They know there is something 'phoney' about this war. And when we were in Paris' it was placarded everywhere by the workers who urged agginst allowing any transport of,, munitions or other assistance to Poland. "Nobody will deny that Poland i entitled to a National existence. But she must not try to become so big that she can't digest what she has. If she is the aggressor are we going to allow it on the theory that any- thing done to the Bolshevists is good and that the Soviets are outside the pale of civilization ? "Here is the key to the situation-- genuine peace must be founded on bringing Soviet Russia again into rel- ation with other Nations. But on this there is a real clash of opinion, as there was in 1919 when President Wil- son first proposed the Brinkipo Con- ference. Whether to treat with Rus- sia by nlilitary intervention or by contact through peaceful intercourse. Workers Opposed to Soviet Form. "Never has there been such great unanimity of opinion on one problem in England as on this--that there shall be no war with Soviet Russia. Most of the Nations with which I am familiar, except France, feel the same. The workers are against the Soviet form of Government. The British Labor Party, after studying it on the spot, is oposed to it. It is true also of the French, Italian and German workers. But they all want peace with Russia, leaving her to determine her own political life. "That may be a commercial recog- nition, not moral recognition. As Lloyd George sid, we treated with the bloody Turk and Czarist Russia and there was no moral censorship to find out how they did business. Wa need not approve their politics be- cause we deal with them. I$ is simply a question of bringing them back into the current of life. "As a great European statesman said, it is more important to send one engine into Russia than to annihilate a regiment, because there are millions and millions and more regiments can be formid. For the Russian Army is now a Na$ional Army, it is no longer a Bolshevist army. All the old sol- diers are'in it, former officers of Deni- kine's force included. The Polish at- tack aroused the National spirit of the entire Russian people. '.'We here in America remai n apart from these things, first because we don't know the facts, and secondly be- cause we allow those who do go over to romanticize when they return. Just as the French know nothing of our situation, when Judge Gary goes to Paris.and gives out oily interviews which would make you think there that everything is lively, there had been no Inter-Church movement re- port on the steel industry. "It is all well for Mr. Harding to say that we have 'meddled enough in Europe,' but people who have been on the grounds must see that we shall yet have to 'meddle' some more and to keep on 'meddling,, regardless-of Mr. Harding's world court scheme, be- cause, as Mr. Lloyd George once. said, we Americans must come to see that the world is round, and we are part of it." No Danger of Revolutions. "What may come of the unrest among the workers?" he was asked. "Well, of Italy I have no first-hand knowledge, but in the other countries there is no danger of revolution. With proper direction this force is quite capable of working out its end through established constitutional means, providing there is some dis- position toward concessions on the other side.' Central Europe Stagnant, Conditions in Central Europe Mr. Frankfurter described as stagnant , the agencies of commerce, banks, land t banks, exchanges, commission houses, all the instruments of the clearing house of an Empire. Today she has none of these. There is no hinterland. There are only a few million German- speaking people Business is no long- er business--it's gambling in ex- change. Within four weeks exchange fluctuated between 150 and 350 crowns per dollar. No business can be done with such financial unrest. Terrible Want. "The want among the people is ter- rible. Similar conditions prevail in other Central Nations. They have nothing. There are many cases of rickets, due simply to undernourish- ment. In fact at one time the death rate, just among children, exceeded the birth rate. This is where Europe stands while the Nations debate the question of treating with Soviet Rus- sia, and France stands out, eager to treat with the rifle." DIOCESAN NOTES B.LD KNOB. A daughter was born last week to Mr. and Mrs. Robert Clark. The ad- vent of an infant daughter was a pleasing event to the parents, even to the five hearty boys now running the Clark home.

After fifteen years of patient wait- lag--for at that time St. Anthony's Congregation, composed of twenty- seven families, had a Church--a resi- (tent priest has been secured, through the kindness of the Rt. Rev. John Baptist Morris, D. D:, Bishop of Little Rock. OnAugust 16, Rev. J. A. Mc- Quaid, of Jonesboro, who gave Wein- er, one ofh is missions, services every fourth Tuesday of a month, brought Rev. George F. X. Strassner by auto to his new parish, visiting that day all the parishioners. Since that date, not a ',week has passed but that something has come to the parish. A tabernacle, ciborium, monstrance, censor, set of green vest- ments, and parish albs, ablution cup, record books have been donations by the Sisters of Michael Meagher Me- morial Hospital, Texarkana, Ark., and friends in MissOuri, Illinois and Ohio. Last week Tuesday a chicken lunch- eon, with a parcel post sale, was served. The co-operation of the non- Catholics made the realization of one hundred and eleven dollars and five Cents possible. Many visitors from Jonesboro were present. To both Catholic and non-Catholic was a great pleasure accorded when Father Mc- Quaid put in his appearance. They say he had to be pulled out of a mud hole, but he was just as happy for the experience, which frequently happens in this rice belt. { A choir was formed last Sunday, which made possible Benediction that afternoon. There is a bright prospect for the choir, with' their ambition to have High Mass at an early date. Sunday afternoon services also in- clude catechism class, for young and old. During October, the rosary is ecited every afternoon at Benedic- tion. Now is the greatest pride of the parish to be noted--the opening of a school. Two rooms in the rectory have been set aside for this purpose. At the opening last Monday twenty- two Catholic children presented them- selves for classification. This num- ber would be greatly swelled if it were possible to give attention to the non-Catholics, for this year however, they are not admitted. DR. I]AGAN'S COMMENT ON THE CONDITIONS EXISTING IN IRELAND (By N. C. W.'C. News Service.) Dublin, Oct. 5.--Receiving congrat- ulatio'ns from the public bodies of his native county of Wicklow on his ap- pointment as Rector of the Irish Col- lege at Rome, the Very Reverend Dr. Hagan referred to recen history in Irehmd. "I express no opinion,' he said, "on the efforts of the men who rose up in Easter Week, 1916. But from inti- mate knowledge of the Continent I can say that their attempt was the one great element which opened the eyes of the people of foreign nations ---particularly in France, Spain and Italyto the reality that Ireland was not a province or county of England. From my experience of foreign lands I can also testify that there is more unanimity of opinion in Ireland than in any other country in Europe." I AN ENDORSEMENT THAT COUNTS.
