PAGE EIGHT "RULE OF THREE" CONDITIONS NEW NUPTIAL AGREEMENTS , @ ]CATHOLIC WOMEN MEET AND PLAN WORK OF YEAR Concentrated Effort by Episcopalian Pastors to Solve the Divorce Evil. In Syracuse they're making a novel experiment these days. Briefly, it' a concentrated effort by the clergy to solve the divoxZce evil by restricting marriage under a new "Rule of Three," first proposed by Rev. Dr. Rolf P. Crum, rector of St. Mark's Episcopal Church at Syracuse, but now generally adopted by pastors of many denominations and warmly in- dorsed by social workers all over the count ry. Today, as a result of the institution of the "Rule of Three," many minis- .ters refuse to tie the nuptial knot in Syracuse who do not demand the ful- filling of these three conditions: First--Proof that-the parties have known each other for at least three months. Second--The presence of wit- nesses personally acquainted with the bride and bridegroom. ThirdA certificate from the family physician, showing the man to be physically fit. Both Church and State to Blame. The 'Rule of Three" was first pro- mulgated by Dr. Crum, with the up- pro*al of the vestry of his'churCh. Dr. Crum is perhaps one of the best known of the younger Episcopal di- vines in New York State. He is a native of Cleveland, O. Dr. Crum does not hesitate in llac- ing the responsibility for the present divorce situation. He accuses.both the Church and the State. Ministers of the gospel, the rector declares, have married without question any couple that floated into the rectory. It is because he declines to have such mar- ri/ges on his conscience that he for- mulated his "Rule of Three." Fragile Divorce Laws. But let Dr. Crum discuss the di- vorce problem in his own" words: "Within the last few years there has been a shocking increase in the number of divorces. It is getting to such a magnitude that .even judges, legislators and those who have made the laws which make divorces easy are becoming alarmed. One divorce to every nine n]arriagesthat is the proportion for the country as a whole. "In our grandfather's day, in out" father's day, divorce was an unheard- of thing .ong our people who made any claim to respectability. Husbands and wives may not always have been congenial, they may have spent their days in a-continuous brawl or they may have remained sphinx-like to- ward each other; nevertheless thby stuck it out, they never thought of go- ing to court about it. "But now" divorces are in fashion. They happen in our best regulated families. Sarah Jones gets a divorce from Henry for hurling a poker at her, and Mrs, Millcent Uphigh gets a decree from G. Clifford Uphigh for hurling caustic and taunting remarks at her. It amounts to the same thing. The only difference is the amount of alimony, "Some of the grounds for these numerous divorces are not fragile. The fact that some States have very strict laws against divorce, and others make it far easier than making out your income tax return, causes a most chaotic state of affairs. Thoroughbreds Needed. "Men have become experts at rais- ing thoroughbred pigs and cattle. It is high time we paid some attention to producing thoroughbred human be- ings. Race .uicide and race welfare do not depend exclusively upon the birth rate: they depend more upon the quality of the next generation. "Diseased and feeble-minded chil- dren are hOg only a burden to society, but  menace to the future. The ma- jority of the cases are traceable to ancestry. Divorce is more than a moral and religious question; it is an economic question." Backing Dr, Crum in his campaign to make Syracuse a 'closed city" as regards easy marriages is Rev. Dr. Wallace E. Brown, pastor of the Uni- versity Methodist Episcopal Church and president of the Syracuse Minis- ters' Association. Reformers in England. America is not the only place where the divorce evil 'is receiving attention today. Great Britain is likewise in the throes of an atation; but, curi- ously enough, the reformers in Eng- land wish to make divorce easier. The move is being bitterly fought by Brit- ish intellectuals. G. K. Chesterson on Divorce. Gilbert K. Chesterson in a new satirical treatise, "The Superstition of Divorce,' 'says the world may soon come to reeking its distinctions be- tw'ee'n thos "who are married" and "those who are really married." Chesterson says: "The/'obvious effect of frivolous di- vorce will be frivolous marriage. The old joke about choosing a wife to har- monize with the furniture might logi- cally return, not as a joke, but as a reality, As regards marriage after ) Work Done in Community Houses Re- viewed--New Houses to lie Opened Service School for Women. (By N. C. W. C. News Service.) Washington, D. C., Oct. 4.--Inspir- ed by the assurance that the Catholic women organized in the United "States are now everywhere enrolling under the banner of the National Council of Catholic Women, the national direct- ors of that organization have gone forth to their respective provinces, following a three-day session here, with the determination to make the next six months the most important in the development of Catholic wom- en's activities in the United States. The report submitted by Miss Ag- nes'Regan, executive secretary of the organization covered substantially all the activities of the Council in the United States and its possessions. The work done in community houses formerly under the superv!sion of the National Catholic War Council, but now assigned to the National Council of Catholic Women was reviewed at length. Community hduses have been operated for a year or more at Bridgeport, Conn.; Cincinnati, O.; Columbus, O.; San 'Antonio, Tex.; De- troit, Mich.; Des Moines, Ia.; East St. Louis, Ill.; Milwaukee, Wis.; Sayre- ville, N. J., and Toledo, O. In addi- tion a reconstruction aides club has been maintai,ed at Walter Reed Hos- pital, Washington, D. C., and a Vis- itors' Home is maifitained at Beau- fort, S. C. New community houses are soon to open at Balboa in the Panama Canal Zone and at Utica, N.Y. Announce- ment was made .of the successful opening of the Gibbons' Service Club  Baltimore on June 17 and of the ational Catholic Community House in the Polish district of that city. DEATH OF REV. E. J. SHEA. " (By N, C. W. C. News Service.) St. Louis, Mo., Oct. 2.--Parishioners of the Church of the Immaculate Con- ception are,mourning the loss of the Rev. E. J. Shea, for forty-one years pastor of that church who died in St. John's Hospital recently. Father Shea was the second oldest priest in the St. Louis diocese. He came from Ireland to this country when a child and was ordained iy Archbishop Kendrick in 1868. divorce, it no more alters the moral quality of conjugal infelicity than the mere kiss on the Bible alters the moral quality of perjury. "'L. W." or "N. D. Y."? "It is wholly possible-that the time will arrive when, upon entering some strange city, a traveler will see'a stately column erected to the memory of 'a wife who never ran away with a soldier,' or the image of a historical character who had not 'bolted with the children's governess.'" Mr. Chesterson also foresees the 'times when a man should designate his domestic status, and he offers some suggestions. One is to sign the initials "L. W." after his name, signi- fying 'lives with wife." Another is to attach "N. D. Y.", meaning "not di- vorced yet.' THE GUARDIAN, SATUR AROUND THE HOUSE A pinch of cream of tartar in fudge or frosting will prevent sugaring and will make it nice and creamy. Always save the inner paper from empty cracker boxes; it is useful in a hundred ways. When buying such frmts as oranges and grapefruit, the weight is a good test, the heavier the better. Keep a clean raw potato '.'n the bread box. You will never have dry or mouldy bread when you do this. The whites will come off oranges if held under cold water and scraped. Keeping Food Clean. In considering food dirt the baffling or perplexing thing is that there are so many ways of being dirty about foods that people in general are not aware of. There are food factories in the very center of the dirtiest places imaginable, and the wind is almost always busy. The peddler pokes over a box of strawberries with hands that have not only the ordinary 200 kinds of dirt that may be on anybody's hands, but he has touched more than one kind of filth, in all probability, and carries the decay of one food to that of another, as the flies do who live by his cart. Under the heading, "The Technique of Food Preparation," one authorita- tive food text book says: "From the moment the food mate- rial enters the kitchen until the un- usable portions are destroyed or car- ried away, there is a best way of working with them at each step, and the sum of these may be said to make a good technique. This technique will include cleanliness first and foremost." Eggs, lemons, and other skin fruits, which would include the tomato, are to be washed and wiped before they are put away in the refrigeratOr. This is best for them and particularly good for the refrigerator, I think. One cleanliness procedure is described in this book as follows: "Remove wrappings from meat, poultry and fish; wipe them with a soft cloth, dipped in salt and water, dry them, and place them in the ice box. Wash the cloth thoroughly and dry it. Fish should be covered that its odor may not affect other foods. Vegetables like lettuce, celery and spinach should le washed and picked over immediately. Do not keep any- thing in'brown paper bags." Anything from which evaporation is rapid, like egg yolks, needs to be cov- ered even when put in the ice box and for the same reason meat, but not covered hermetically. Tongue Salad. This is a salad nice for a luncheon dish. Take one-third each of boiled tongue finely minced, celery and po- tato, add minced parsley and serve with a highly seasoned dressing. Potatoes au Gratin. Boil the potatoes in their jackets, peel and chop rather coarsely. Put the potatoes into a baking dish, pour over them a white sauce and a sprink- ling of grated cheese.' Put into the oven, cover with buttered crumbs and bake until the'crumbs are brown. Sponge Cake Porcupines.
