Six hundred units, scattered throughout America, were represented at the meeting. Michael J. Slattery was re-elected president of the organization. Immediate Steps. Notable among the immediate steps to be taken by the Union will be those in affecting the care and welfare of immigrants, the promotion of the boy scout movement, the fostering of the study of social problems through pub- lic lectures and the private mastery of text-books based upon Catholic philosophical principles, and the es- tablishment of civic centers where Catholi young men may enjoy facili- ties for physical education and social intercourse. President Siattery's Address. The keynote of the convention was struck by President Slattery in his address urging the members to unite their forces with those of the National Council of Catholic Men, not only na- tionally but through local units. "The National Council of Catholic' ]en will be a sort of big brother to us," said Mr. Slattery, in his opening address. "It will be a medium to which we can turn for inspiration, en- couragement and support. Its basic principle is one of helpful assistance. It will not disturb, the autonomy of existing societies. It will be an or- ganization that will gather within its membership the Catholic men of the country into one compact and unified body, for the promotion and advance- ment of Catholic interests. On its the repose of the souls of those who fell in the great war. To Help Women Citizens. Cognizance of the new status of the womanhood of America through the passage of the Nineteenth Amend- ment was taken in a resolution in which Catholic women were offered the use of the meeting places of the different local units in order that they might assemble and study their rights, responsibilities and privileges as citi- zens of the Republic. Commended by Archbishop Hayes. Warm commendation of the work of the society was voiced in a letter re- ceived from the Most Rev. Patrick J. Hayes, Archbishop of New York and spiritual director of the organization. "The growing strength of the move- ment," said Archbishop Hayes in his letter, "by reason of the increased memberslfip and affiliations is one of the most compelling arguments and proofs in its favor and I hope and pray for it every possible success and blessing."

It opens up a new field to your membership. It will be a field open to all who wish to enter this new vocation. Civic Centers. "The establishment of civic centers has always been a paramount ques- tion with this organization. While we all hold to the principle.that the pm- ish unit is the fundamental pri,'.ciple cf our Catholic life, we also recognize the importance of a centre in eve cy city where not only the Catholic young men of that city can enjoy all the facilities offered by organizations outside the Church, but will also be a home to the Catholic boy who comes to you as a stranger. The hour for action along these lines has arrived, and we must set ourselves to the ac- complishment of this ideal."' Resolutions Adopted. Notable among the resolutions action May Mean Revolution. (N. C. W. C. Dept. of Social Action) Rev. Jones I. Corrigan, S. J., Pro- fessor of Ethics in Boston College, addressed lately 1,100 teachers of the Boston schools, attacking the "open shop" campaign of certain employers' associations in the United States. The "open shop" fight is growing in in- tensity and warnings have been re- peatedly given out that the coming winter will see more and more at- tempts by employers to reject collec- tive bargainin.g. Capital's Guise. Father Corrigan said: "Capital's declaration of war upon labor under the guise of a cmnpaign for the 'open shop' has come at a most unfortunate time, and will have disastrous conse- quences unless checked at once. Backed by the triple alliance of win- ter, industrial depression and unem- [ployment, the 'open shop' campaign may have a temporary success, but in the long run, which may be very soon, the counter-offensive of radical forces which have been recruited by the fatal and futile coarse of reaction will sweep away thelast vestiges of indus- trial peace and bring about far-reach- ing economic changes that may not be altogether to the liking of our finan- cial and industrial interests."

Inreality, however, they are fighting labor unions, collective bargaining, the liv- ing wage, that degree of independence of the workers obtainable by labor unions, and the whole labor move- merit. Pope Leo and Bishops' Program. The Bishops' Program of Social Re- construction says that "it is to be hoped that the right of labor to organ- ize and to deal with employers through chosen representatives will never again be called into question." Pope Leo years before emphasized the right of labor to organize and the great benefit to be obtained from it. The recent Pastoral Letter of the American hierarchy called attention t "the right of the workers to foster and maintain the kind of organization that is necessary and that will be most effective in ccuring their welCare." Laborers Must Act Together. Dr. John A. Ryan in the recent pamphlet of the National Catholic Welfare Council on Capital and Labor, while advocating shop committees and !profit sharing, declares that "as com- ipared with capital, labor has always been the weaker party in negotiations :about wages and other conditions of :employment. To obtain a position of approximately equal bargaining pow- er, laborers must act as a body, and the individuals who represent them in the bargaining process must be the most effective that they can find. Such representatives are generally the of- .ricers of the unions." There is grave danger that the "open shop" campaign nmy precipitate widespread industrial warfare. Many employees have learned for the first time the strength of unions and they will not give up without a struggle. "Our present economic life," said Father Corrigan, "is in" process of flux. Reactionary forces are striving to restrain it within the old forms and molds, but it were as well to try to imsh back Niagara." CANTERBURY PRIMATE CALLS NATION TO PRAYER FOR IRELAND (By N. C. W. C. News Service) London, Oct. 15.--The .Protestant Archbishop of Canterbury has called upon the whole nation to unite in prayer for Ireland. In his appeal the Archbishop says: "Among many problems two at least are outstanding--Ireland dis- tracted from end to end; the endeav- ors on either side thwarted by preju- dice or inflamed by passion; states- manship flouted or powerless, and lib- erty travestied; while capable men are striving eagerly, but in vain, to find a reasonable pathway through the darkening turmoil and the fog." The appeal is remarkable in its way., because in fornaer generations an ap- peal for prayer from such a quarter would have amounted, in fact, to an appeal for the support of one side. But the Archbishop's call is clearly a call to prayer for both parties in the struggle that is now going on. LITTLE ROCKETTES of that municipality with the mother- 'city, whose good citizens are inclined Kindness Is the Word. "What is the real good?" I asked in musing mood. Order, said the law court; Knowledge, said the school; Truth, said the wise man; Pleasure, said the fool; Love, said the maiden; Beauty, said the page; Freedom, said the dreamer; Home, said the sage; Fame, said the soldier; Equity, the seer. Spake my heart full sadly: "The answer is not here." Then within my bosom, Softly this I heard; Each heart holds the secret, "Kindness is the word." --John Boyle O'ReiJly. God Bless Dad, Too. We happened in a home the other night, and over the parlor door saw the legend worked in letters of red "What is Home Without a Mother?" Now what's the matter with "God that way too. There are some selfish politicians on both sides of the river, but the Public School fight on the North bank seems to leave a surplus of undesirables over there, whom we do ot like to class as our fellow- citizens.

Johnny was feeling peevish, and it was most unusual for him to be out of sorts. Mother was anxious to know what the matter was. "I--I feel awful inside!" groaned Johnny. "What do you think it is?" asked mother. "Oh," wailed Johnny, "I had French peas and German sausages at auntie's yesterday and now they seem to be fighting along my whole front." All-American Team. Our U. S. Senator, Joe T. Robinson last week was touring New York I State with its Governor, A1 E. Smith, a his campaign pal. Up N. Y. way politicians make good bed-fellows, provided they are of the same party. We are sure that it made no differ- ence with "Our Joe" that Gov. Al. was a good and staunch Catholic.

They accordingly went in together, but in a little while the :friend found the inebriate one sob- bing quietly to himself, although the picture then flickering across the screen was certainly not a pathetic one.
