THE GUARDIAN, OCTOBER 15, 1943 PAGE FIVE Of American ciscans Adopted Holy Land School Jerusalem. 00--Following standards set by Terra Sancta College the largest of the educational institutions conducted by the Holy Custody, under the direction of American Franciscans, the Custody of the Holy Land is now expanding its school to include secondary classes, the equivalent of high schools in in a number of its larger parishes in Palestine. is another example of how educational methods of the Amer- Franciscans at Terra Sancta have established standards which Christian schools in Pales- .atholic as well as Ca- adopted. recent educational report of Palestine Government states in the Jewish and Christian almost 10 per cent children apparently receive of some kind, while less one-half of the Moslem chil- attend any school.

Of- statistics reveal that there some 314,000 children of age (5 to 15 years) in the of whom only about 178,000 actually attended school. Of these, about 64,000 frequent private schools conducted by the Christian, Moslem, and Jewish interests. Among the Christian children, numbering 25,000, over 15,000 are in the 108 Catholic schools of Palestine. It is inter- esting to note in this connection that several hundred dissent Ori- entals, Moslems and Jews attend Catholic schools--a tribute to educational and ethical standards of these schools. The schools maintained by the Holy Land Custody--ranging from large modern ones in the cities to small school-houses in the remote: missions  teach approximately 4,000 children in Palestine, some 2,000 in Syria, Lebanon, Egypt and Cyprus. This extensive edu- cational network provides (with the exception of the Colleges in Jerusalem and Aleppo, which are practically self-sustaining) free education for all Catholic chil- dren. attending those schools, which are supported by the alms of Catholics throughout the world --which nowadays means prin- cipally the Americas. Education is by no means a new Church. TO HEAR MASS Corrected as of October I, 1943 Lady, Help of Chris- yeas of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, Mass on Sunday at 8".80 Tuesday at 7:80 P.M.

No. 47 The Story Of The Bible In Pictures have often said, declared unto us, saying: You shall not see my face without your youngest brother. Israel said to them: You have done this for my misery in that you told him you had also another brother. But they answered: The man asked us in order concerning our kin- dred: if our father lived: if we had a brother: and we answered him regularly, according to what he demanded: could we know that he would say: bring hither your brother with you? And Juda said as we to his father: Send the boy with me, that In the mean time the famine was heavy upon all the land. And when they had eaten up all thee corn, which they had brought out of Egypt, Jacob said to his sons: Go again and buy us a little food. Juda answered: The man declared unto us with attestation of an oath, saying: You shall not see my face, unless you bring your youngest brother with you. If therefore thou wilt send him with us, we will set out together, and will buy necessaries for thee. But if thou wilt not, we will not go: for the man, we may set forward, and my live: lest both we and our children perish. I take the boy upon me, require him at my hands; unless I bring him again, and re- store him to thee I will be guilty of sin against thee for ever. If delay had not been made, we had been here again the second time. Then Israel said to them: If it must needs be so, do what you will: take of the best fruits of the land in your vessels, and carry down presents to the man, a little balm, and honey, and storax, myrrh, turpentine and almonds And take with you double money, lad carry back what you found in your sacks, lest perhaps it was done by mistake. And take also your brother, and go to the man. And may my Almighty God make him favorable to you; and send back with you your brother, whom he keepeth, and this Benjamin: and as for me I shall be desolate without children. So the men took the presents, and double money, and Benjamin: and wont down into Egypt, and stood before Joseph. activity of the Franciscans here. Even under the adverse conditions then existing, they founded the first free schools in the Holy Land, it being a matter of record that even before 1560, when the first free school on the American continent was established in Mex- ico--also by Franciscansthey conducted a boys' school in Jer- usalem; while a pilgrim of 1598 relates that in his day they had a florishing school also in Bethle- hem. A Franciscan Tradition After 1839 when freedom of education was granted in Pales- tine by the then-ruling Sultan Abdul Megid, the Franciscans, with the cooperation of Sisters of St. Joseph, a French foundation, opened numerous parish schools for native girls, and that at a time when the very idea of edu- cation for women was decidedly frowned upon in the Orient, and considered a novelty even in cul- tured New England. Yet today in Palestine, only 4 per cent of Mohammedan girls are permitted to attend school. Even in the darkest years pre- ceding the present century, it was the proud tradition of the Sons of St. Francis here that they al- ways managed, generally amid great difficulties, to ]give at least a rudimentary education to those fortunate enough' to come within their influence, so that there was hardly a town in all the Custody territory where one could not find someone who owed his edu- cation to the Franciscans--a tradi- tion no less true today.
