"By the laws now governing Ire- land every Irishman is a criminal and (Continued from Page 1) liable to a drumhead court-martial, at kay moment the army of occupation wants to get a new victim. "It is practically impossible not to be a criminal in Ireland at present, for Section 50 of the D. O. R.

"The power of tyranny could not go further. It permits the accusation-- constitutes its own courts and also makes its own penalties, and Parlia- aent gives it a free hand and supplies it with its military instruments. No Wonder Irish Bishops Wrote Their Famous Letter. "It ds no wonder that the Irish Bishops wrote their famous letter a few weeks ago, and that even there is Says the Bishop. "From Rome I went to England, and landed early in August. Americans are not very welcome in England at present--Yankees and Jews are among the undesirables, at least in London hotels. A wise American will remove all tags from his trunks and let his Americanism play possum while he stays in England, if he wants even ordinary civility. I envied my tavel- ing companion, who had a British "passport, and at times he pitied me to have to show my evidence of Ameri- car c!tizenship. , Searched by British in Ireland.No Respect for American Passport. "Later on in Ireland, when my car was held .up and I was searched by the Black and Tans, I knew more. I asked the soldier by vhat authority I was I held up and searched, and he gave me a very convincing answel/when he put his revolver to my face and said, 'This I is my authority.'

No Hope for Ireland. "The Irish in America need not think that they count for anything to stop this trouble, because, as I heard on the other side, England can whip h'eland, because she has forty mil- lions to the Irish four and she can buy or bamboozle America as she did its chief representative at the peace con- ference. "There seems-no hop for Ireland except that they may be all prepared, as was the Loffl Mayor of Cork, to die for his coufftry, and to meet a fa-] vorable judgnaent on the othe side." CATHOLIC GAINS IN ] CHURCH'S RELATIONS WITH SLOVAKIAN STATE (By N. C. W. C.  News Service,) Prague, Czecho-Slovakia, Nov, 1.- Some Catholic gains are to be recorded in the work of fixing the relation of Church and" state in Czecho-Slovakia. For one thing, the government has taxied Dr. Barosek's hostile motion, which, among her evil purposes, con- templated the outright co/ffication of ecclesisatical propely. The whole question is' now in the hands of the government itself, and most of the negotiations are being conducted by Dr. Edward Banes, Minister of For- eign Affairs. Dr. Benes, through the Czecho-Slo- yak representative at the Vatican. is now dealing directly with the Holy See. It is stated that-in principle the following points have been finally de- te.rined: First, that the Church is to rmain in possession of public rights recog- nized by the state (and not be subject to the supervision that was intended to be authorized by Bartosek's mo- tion). Second, the Church is to be guaran- teed the power and authority to ac- quire, hold and manage its property. Third, the acquisition of any of the Church's property by the State, as far as public needs require, shall be in accordance with law agd with ample compensation. Further accord must be reached re- /gardlng freedom of 6duration and the erection and maintenance of religious schools. These have not as yet been reached in the discussions. When the principal questions at issue have been settled by the gov- ernment and the Vatican, it is pro- posed that the Ministry, guided by these preliminary considerations, will present to the ational Aembly its program for adjusting all the politico- religious issues in the Republic BELGIAN COUR' DENIES FUND TO REBUILD CONVENT (By N.

'Oh, to h-- with America and its passports.' America Credited in England With Playing Greatest Sldn Game. "I remained about a week in Eng- land, and even that was too long. It was painful to me, coming from Ver- dun and from Argonne cemetery, to hear that America played only one part in the war, the part of profiteer- . i ing, and Amerma'won only one vic- the victory of fleecing all Eu- I tory, rope ,while it was down and bleeding.

I thought the French and Italians were experts in searching suit cases and hnd-bags, but they were in the kin- dergarten class when compared to the English soldiers. Bag and trunks were ransacked; your .carefully pack- ed belongings were scattered over the dirty, badly lighted docks, acid I was afraid that even my safety razor bOUld be coifiscated. Ladies who were inging their French costumes and creations to rival the horses at the Dublin horse show got the same treat- ment, and their resentment was e2- plosive and their vocabulary exhaust- ed Webster.

Knightsof Columbus Society Activities TECHNICAL TRAINING POPULAR The greatest denmnd ever witness- ed in this country for technical train- ing is now the final pogt-war phe- nomenon, according to the Knights of Co!umbus. William J.' McGinley el New York, supreme secretary of the (. of C. and director of their educa- tional organization, states that the requests made on the Knights for ad- mission to their free]night schools for former service men are more than double the number received last year. "We have had to open up thirty new schools within three months," he stated. "We are accommodating ap- proximately 60,000 former service men in these schools, and we shall have to open more schools nder the auspices of the K. of C. councils in order to care for the men who desire technical training. "By far the most pouplar course is auto mechanics, because this trains a man for business and pleasure both. But there is an increasing demand for special training in the sedentary oc- cupations--in expert accounting par- ticularly, and we have more than three thousand former service men taking courses in income-tax law and operation. "In New "fork one of our schools on West Fiftieth street, has become so overcrowded that we have had to open another to take care of the over- flo; We had intended to restrict our activities everywhere, but instead we find ourselves extending them in order to cope with the demand. The K. of C. system is an/entirely new ' growth, part of ore:' eployment and general reconstructio work. The great num- ber of night schools, private and pub- lic, added to the rapidly expanding K. of C. chain certainly give proof that the demand for technical train- ing is widespread and most unusual also mostn'couraging from the stand- point of national progress." OFFICIAL REPORT ON EDUCATIONAL WORK men in employment, the Knights of Columbus statgd today that, whereas the government's efforts to replace veterans in civilian employment had practically ceased some time ago, the K. of C. had had to assume practically sole operation of free employment bureaus for veterans. "The report from Washington," the K. of C. state, "indicates that far more ex-service men have been reabsorbed in industry and commerce than is ac- tualIy tile case. The figures given are unquestionably accurate, but they fail to take into consideration the large turn-over. The Knights of Co- lumbus alone have placed more than 500,000 ren without cost to candidate or employer, and in doing so the K. of C. system has been able to control turn-over by stipulating hat men remain in the employment offered hem for a reasonable length of time. The Knights have always abstained from sending men to replace strikers. "Despite the efforts of the govern- meat and the K .of C. and other agen- cies, thousands of cx-service men are unplaced. The job of retaining agri- cultural workers in agriculture has been left almost entirely to private organizations. The Washington re- port states that numbers of ex-service men did not want to work. These in- dividuals were so rare that mention of them in a general report amounts to exaggeration." K. OF C. WAR MEMORIAL BUILDING MA" BE ON PENNSYLVANIA AVENUE The official report for 1920 of the Knights of Columbus committee on education concerning K. of C. college scholarships for former service men has jtmt been made public. It shows hat where last year the Knights maintained 415 former service men in colleges and universities in all courses but law and medicine, that this year the number has been reduced to 322 through resignations and failure to meet standards, as well as through transference on the part of many scholars to K. of C. free night techni- cal courses. Apart from these specifi- cally limited scholarships the K. of C., through state and national boards, are maintaining scores of veterans in col- leges in law and other courses. "These men," the K. of C. repnrts made "are provided with free tuition, board and lodging, the latter items being provided on a basis sufficient to insure certain creature comforts in addition. The chief conditions of award of scholarships is that the men be honorably discliarged from the Army or Navy and that they qualify to the standards set by the institution they enter. "Of the 322 men receiving schol- ar.ships, 37 have been reassigned to Massachusetts Institute of Technol- ogy, 37 Georgetown Uniersity, 33 "University of Illinois, 24 University of Pennsylvania, 22 Notre Dame Uni- versity, 19 Holy Cross, 19 Catholic University, 17 University of Minne- sota, 14 Sheffield Scientific School (Yale), 14 Fordham University, 12 Stevens Institute of Technology, 8 University of California, 7 University of Missouri, 6 Purdue University, 5 Brooklyn Polytechnic Institute, 5 Colorado School of Mines, 5 Worces- ter Polytechnic Institute, 3 Ohio College, 2 each West Virginia-Uni- . /. . versity, Villanova Umversty, Niagara University, Duquesne University/De- troit University and Creig}aton Uni- versity and one each at/Columbia (Dubuque), Manhattan and St. Thomas (St. Paul) College. "The reports on the diligence nd discipline of the ex-service men, stu- dents," the report concludes, '"nave been most favorable. In each case they have shown, a praiseworthy at- tempt to excel in their studies and in cases where withdrawal was ad- vised by the head of the institution the men have frankly admitted their limitations and accepted K. of C. aid in other ways. "The cost of maintaining each stu- dent in college varies between eight and fourteen hundred dollars a year." EMPLOYMENT BUREAU ACTIVE.

C. W. C. News Sewiee.) Washington, D. C., Nov. 20.--Penn- sylvania avenue, near the capitol, it is tentatively proposed, will be th?" site of the building which the  Knights of Columbus have offered to erect at-a cost of $5,000,000 as a clubhouse for war veterans, a public auditorium and a memorial of the world war. The selection of this site, it is point- ed out, would conform to the program of the Public Buildings Commsmon. which is co-operating with the Fine Arts Commission in assuring archi- tectural fitness and harmonious group- )ng m additional buildings to be renard in the capitol. The setting in which it is proposed to place the new Memo- rial building would be one of the most accessible and attractive in Washing- ton Thus far the American Legion, to which tlie Knights of Columbus of- fered the gift of $5,000,000, has not announced its acceptance. A meeting of \\;the executive board of the Legion, it is stated, will make known its de- cision about January 1. PRESERVATION OF FAITH AMONG CATHOLIC INDIANS As the work of the Society f)r the Preservation of the Faith Among In- dian Children has notably increased in recent years, and as it is necessary to obtain throughout the country as 4mny members as possible for this Society, on which depends so mate- rially the support of the Indian Mis- sions, the Most Reverend Archbishops who direct the work of the Bureau of Catholic Indian Missions, at their last annual meeting, authorized the Right Reverend Director of the Catholic In- dian Bureau to secure permanent headquarters for the lureau and also separate office facilities for the Pre- servation Society.
