He told them that as Catholics they must face the prob- lems of the day, such as those of cap- ital and labor, the relations between the rich and poor and the money question, botl', the absence of money and the inordinate desire for it. The R.ev. Roger Middendorf, O. F. M., ommission of the Province, in his annual message made a number of practical recommendations and pro- posed measures for the extension of the Third Order and for work in the charity field. Father van Tourenhout called at- tention to the desirability of organiz- ing a fraternity of the Third Order among the secular priests. Msgr. Holweck amplified this idea and promised to leave nothing undone to realize it within the year. $750,000 DRIVE ON FOR COLLEGE FUND (By N. C. W. C. News Service) Brooklyn, N.

W. C. News Service) Chicago, Ill., Oct. 12.Revocation of licenses of from twenty to a hun- dred a day, daily and nightly raids and arrests by the score, continue to mark Mayor Dever's crusade to elemi- nate illicit drink selling from Chicago. , Before a body of some 10,000 resi- dents of German nativity and extrac- tion, Mayor Dever took occasion to iarther impress upon the public that he is acting, not because he is a pro- hibitionist, but because the violation of the Volstead act is bringing all law into disregard, lowering the morale of the police department, and thrusting violent crime into the open streets. During the week, the mayor sub- mitred the police department to one of the greatest shakeups it has received m years. A number of old command- ers were requested to resign and did, because the mayor held that the situ- ation demanded young and vigorous men. Some of the transfers and re- movals were based, it is understood, on willful failure to enforce the law. Mayor Dever's attitude as outlined before the German Day celeorants was -' "Let us take it for granted, th you and I do not like the Volstead act that we do not believe it is a good law," he said. "There are only two ways to treat it. One is to disregard it entirely. The other is to enforce it until its injustice has so aroused the people that relief will come through the ballot box. "I have never pretended to be and am not a prohibitionist. But I am trying to make Chicago a place of law and order. I have said many times that I wish the people of Chicago could have good, wholesome beer at a moderate price. But the poison that is being sold is not beer, and the price is not moderate. "And furthermore, the poison has found its way into our body politic. It has worked its way into our city, county and state governments, I am aiming or a clean, decent city and the police are going to be used to sup- press lawlessness and disorder as long as I am mayor."

News Service) Cologne, Oct. 3.Catholics of Ger- many, despairing of finding u proper realization of their ideals in the com- mercial theater, have resolved to em- bark upon the upbuilding of a Catho- lic theater wherein Christian morality and religion will not be offended. It is true that Catholic unions for some time back have had their own theaters and there was published a long list of plays "for Catholic stage unions," but these for the most part were of little artistic value and at- tracted scant attention. Now the leaders of the movement have come to a realization that higher artistic standards must be aprpoached and it seems that a definite forward move- ment is imminent. Two new organizations have been formed in recent years to promote tle theater movement. These are the "German Stage Society," and "The People's Stage Union." A conference of these two organizations was held at Frankfort-on-the Main and since then they have been working hand in hand. A printing office has been es- tablished at Frankfort which has al- ready turned out an otable list of plays which are being given represen- tation in many parts of the country. The representatives of these theat- rical organizations recently conferred with the principal leaders of the Ger- man Catholic young people's societies land endeavored to make it possible that boys and girls traveling about the country under Catholic auspices would promote the ideals of the Chris- tian theater. In this manner it has been possible to present in the smaller towns and villages a great number of clean, artistic plays which hitherto could not be given representation. A culmination of ths move,'uent for the use of non-professions, players was found in the course arranged for the city of Bonn which ] now in prog- CATHOLIC POSITION IN WORLD AFFAIRS TO BE CONSIDERED By H. Christopher Watts (London Correspondent, N. C. W. C. News Service) London, Oct. 8.Hdving carefully excluded the Holy See from any active participation in the work of the League of Nations, some of the more ardent champions of the League in England have, during the past few days, found a grievance in the fact that the Pope did intervene in the Greece-Italian crisis. Lord Hugh Cecil and Mr. Eden Phillpotts, the well-known novelist, ,have between them some complaint that Pius XI did not take upon him- self to admonish Premier Mussolini. More than one secular journal has hinted that the League of Nations would be much more effigacious if it received that support from the Catho- lic Church which it might expect to receive. The English Hierarchy, and with them the English Catholics, on the whole, have given a fairly generous support to the League of Nations, in principle. But there is not a Catho- lic up and down the country but sees the absurdity of this semi-leproach that the Church and the Pope have not supported the League adequately. The Catholic Citizen This question of Catholics and po- litical action is about to be explored very thoroughly at the ancient city of Reading, where an important confer- ence is being held, at which the topic of discussion will be "The Catlmlic Citizen: His National and Interna- tional Responsibilities." The confer. ence is neither merely local nor na- tional. English Catholics will pre- dominate in the attendance, but with them will be the Secretary-General of the International Federation of Trade Unions, who comes from Utrecht; the French Redemptorist Pere Philippe; Canon Gienwein, of Budapest; a rep- resentative of Msgr. Seipel, the Aus- trian Chancellor, as well as individual ress.

The wo:'ks of 3me ct the greatest poets are being used in the repertoire of the Catholic players, including Shakespeare, Schiller, Haus and Sachs. The list of plays compiled for the Catholic groups includes more than thirty rOlJl$;OUs plays oi" dramas based on legends 0 biblical tales.

The impcetance of this conference is emphasized in the fact that it will represent no political party, or sys- tem, or even, any existing organiza- tion.

METHODISTS CONDEMN RACE INTOLERANCE (By N. C. W. C. News Service) Chicago, Oct. 12.Despite a bitter opposition by some of the ministers, one of whom is quoted as saying "he was a member of the Ku Klux Klan and proud of it," Methodist ministers in session at the Rock River Cmffer- ence, adopted a resolution condemn- ing all race hostilities. The fight came over the adoption of resolutions of policy, which in their original draft as presented contained the words: "We condemn any insti- tution which has as one of its princi- ples 'We believe in the supremacy of the white race.'" Although the Ku Klux Klan was not mentioned, the ministers appeared unanimous in their understanding that that organization was meant, for the open discussion at once revolved about the Klan. POPE'S MESSAGE TO WOMEN'S COUNCIL (By N. C. W. C. News Service) Washington, D. C., Oct., 15.--Re- spending to a message sent on behalf of the National Council of Catholic Women, assembled in this city for its third annual convention. His Holi- ness, Pope Plus XI has sent the fol- lowing cablegram, addressed to the Right Rev. Joseph Schrembs, Bishop of Cleveland: "The August Pontiff, pleased with the expression of devoted filial hom- age on the part of the National Con- gress of Catholic Women, imparts from his heart to each one present at the convention the Apostolic Benedic- tion as an augury of the Divine as- sistance and an earnest for the future of a more fruitful and helpful aposto- late." The cablegram was signed on behalf of the Holy Father by His Eminence, Cardinal Gasparri, the Papal Secre- tary of State. ANTI-KLAN PLEDGE FAILS IN LOUISIANA DEMOCRATIC PARTY (By N. C W. C. News Service) New Orleans, Oct., i6.Efforts to place the Democratic State Central Committee of Lousiana on record against the Ku Klux Klan failed when a resolution introduced by Caleb C. Webster, of Donaldsonville, that can- didates be pledged to sup-ort legis- lation to remove the masz o secrecy in secret orders received no support, Webster obtained the reading of the resolution but got no urther consider- alien. Its effect would have been to make every candidate for the state legislature in the coming primary take an anti-Klan oath that he would battle for legislation to suppress the Klan and it is 'evident that members uf the committee thought it ws too drastic. . :' (Continued from Page 4)  ., CARD.
