Much has been said of the Catholic press as a vehide for the publication of accurate news and views of happenings, local, diocesan, national and international. The apostolate of the press has an importance that cannot be exaggerated in the spread of accurate information, as a corrective against moral abuses and unsound social, economic and educational theories, and, above all, as a source of informa- tion aboutright notions of Catholic faith and morals. These functions of the Catholic press are so evident as to be admitted by all thinking Catholics derical and lay. "I'laom g. Goma Bishop of Reno (From Sink or &vhn, Rt. Rev. Paer M.H.
