Fine glass and china owels may be made out of much-worn table nap- Dangerous Bridge Head. The Hanrahan Bridge connects Ar- kansas with the most killing city in: the United States. Memphis has tfe record for homicides this year, as it did for the past ten years. We were going to say that the people over i that way are queer, but as we think it over, probably the local politics are to blame for most of the terminal de- mentia. Comparisons Noticed. German lawyers engaged to defend German war criminals charged with atrocities in Belgium are assembling data on Lloyd George's reprisals' pro- gram in Ireland. Speeches by British Cabinet officers and the Black and Tan outrages in Ireland show that England is now just as ferocious as was Germany in 1914 against the poor Belgiums. The world is beginning to get daily data on "poor Ireland," which do not justify the atrocious re- prisals. Admiral Sims Not Listed. No mention was made of Admiral W. S. Sims when awards for notable services were made at the Naval Col- lege at Newport. However, Sims has the highest honors as the most pro- British among the American admir- als, and that goes a good way for a fellow like Sims. Golf balls reduced from $1.00 to 75 cents apiece in Chicago. High balls remain at $2.50. Cups of Hickory Included? Sixteen billion more cups of coffee have been consumed so far in 1920 than in the entire year of 1919, ac- cording to Felix Coste of New York, secretary of the association. The in- crease is due principally to prohibi- tion, he asserted. Monkeying With Destiny. Worthy Master Lowell, of the Na- tional Grange, addressing the farmers of the country, said, that as a pos- sible expedient, the farmers will be forced to join other organizations in an effort to organize National wide- selling associations, which shall fix the price of foods. "There is no threat in this; we will have been driven to it to preserve our agriculture. We are not inclined to longer see city people rob the earth or ridicule its caretakers. Someone must be wise enough to stop this mon- keying with our destiny. "We know you will join with us in saying that this condition is repug- nant to us all. We desire no class reg- ulations or class divisions. We desire to labor for humanity and to be able to keep the earth fertile, always bring- ing forth harvest sufficient to feed the increasing millions of our people. It is no small task, however, and we de- sire to state frankly that it can only be afely done by a proper apprecia- tf,,of it by our urban brothers and sisters. Shake the hands of some people and give some other people the shake. Mr. Dooley on "Open Shop." Doctor Ryan, in his new book, "Social Reconstruction," has the fol- lowing quotation from the celebrated Mr. Dooley, which is quite appro- priate to our men and times: "What is all this talk that's in the papers about the open shop?" asked Mr. Hennessy. "Why, don't you know?" said Mr. D0oley. "Really, I'm surprised at yer ignorance, Hennessy. What's the open shop? Sure, 'tis a shop where they keep the door open t' accommo- date the constant stream of rain com- in' in t' take jobs chaper than th' rain that has the jobs. 'Tis like this, Hen- nessy: Suppose one of these free-born Amerycan citizens is wurkin' in an open shop for the princely wages of wan large iron dollar a day of tin hours. Along comes another free- born feller, and he sez to th' boss, 'I think I" can handle th' job for ninety cints.' 'Shure,' sez the boss, an' the dollar man gets the merry jinglin' can and goes out into the crool world to exercise his inalienable rights as a free-born Amerycan citizen t' scab on some other poor devil. An' so it goes on, Hennessy. An' who gets the bene- fit? Thrue, it saves the boss money, but he don't care no more for money than he does for his roight eye. It's all principle wid him. He hates to see th' rain robbed of their independence. They must have their independence, regardless of anything ilse." "But," said Hennessy, "these open shop min ye minshun say they are fur the union, if properly conducted." "Shure,' 'said Mr. Dooley, "if prop- erly conducted. An' there we are. An' how would they have thim conducted ? No strikes, no rules, no conthracts, no scales, hardly any wages and a few mimbers." When trouble goes to sleep, don't zet the alarm clock. kins.

J THE GUARDIAN, SATURDAY, DECEMBER 4, 1920. i PROTESTANT PASTOR PAYS HIGH TRIBUTE TO WELFARE COUNCIL (Continued from Page 1) ties for the nmral education of girls, through physical training, etc.; the de- velopment of such agencies as the Knights of Columbus for young men, the conserving of the forces that were set in motion during the war and ap- plying the same to the conditions of the normal life; a prominent place will be given to the matters of immigra- tion. These are simply a few of the featui'es of a movement so wide as to make a complete survey impos- sible. Home and School. The heart of the Archbishop seemed to be most deeply touched by the movement in behalf of the ho.me and the child. The failure of our public school system to include moral and religious culture is the chief reason for the parochial schools of the Ro- man Catholic Church throughout the country. "The Catholic Church is not hostile to the public school system. That system is excellent as far as it goes, but the Church insists that there shall be a moral and religious educa- tion as a foundation." The testimony of such a man as the well known Rabbi, Dr. Hirsch, of Chicago, is worth noting. He said: "The best minds of the Nation now agree that there nmst be some system of moral training in the public schools. The Catholic Church has long held this contention, and that Church is un- doubtedly correct in its insistence that education must be more than the mere acquisition of knowledge." Immigration Problems. hmnigration presents many acute probIems that must be faced. Soon the tide of immigration will sweep with greater force than ever towards our shores and San Francisco will be a port of call. The past experience of the poor immigrants in New York, with its rotten system and countless pit falls, will no longer exist. The Immigrant must be met with a wel- come and treated with every consid- eration. The enthusiasm of Archbishop Hanna, in his outline of the move- ment, made it clear that no mistake was made when the Council in Wash- ington ignored the matter of distance and made him president of the execu- five committee. The progress of the "Catholic Wel- fare Council" will be watched with interest by all who have the welfare of the Nation at heart, and I left the presence of the Archbishop of San i Francisco with a feeling that I had] caught at least a part of that vision[ which the leaders of the movement i I possess. I - I NEW ART CATALOGUE FOR NOTRE DAME (By N. C. W. C. News Service) Notre Dame, Ind., Nov. 28.--A new catalogue of art works in the Uni- versity of Notre Dame, which contains the greatest collection of old masters in America, excepting that of the Metropolitan Museum of New York, is now being prepared.

News Service) Washington, D. C., Dec. 1.Unde- terred by the formal refusal of the British Government, through the em- bassy in Washington, to present wit- nesses, the Villard Commission on Conditions in Ireland has decided to send a subcommittee to Ireland to carry on the inquiry there.

C., Nov. 29.An archbishop, with residence at Wash- ington and direction of all the eccle- siastical affairs of the Episcopal Church of the United States, after the manner of the Church of England, is proposed by Right Rev. Paul Mat- thews, Bishop of Trenton, N. J. In an address before the Episcopal Synod of the Province of New York and New Jersey, Bishop Matthews ad- vocated the English arrangement and recommended a plan by which it could be realized.

PATRONIZE OUR ADVERTISERS POPE BENEDICT'S GREAT-GRAND UNCLE WAS BISHOP IN CHINA (By N. C. W. C, News Service) Ossining, N. Y., Nov. 27.--Pope Benedict's fatherly interest in Chi- nese missions--testified on many oc- casions-is attributed by many to the fact that his great-grand uncle, Mon- signor Bernardin della Chiesa, a Franciscan, was Bishop of Pekin and consecrated the first, and thus far the only, native Bishop of China. Monsignor della Chiesa was born in Venice, in 1643, nd at an early age joined the Franciscans. He went to China in 1680 as representative of Pope Innocent XI, with the title of Administrator General of China. Bishop of Pekin. When the See of Pekin was created in 1690, Monsignor della Chiesa was appointed Bishop, but he could not make his residence in the city because of the hostility of the Emperor, and visited the capital only when the ruler was absent. The Chinese Bishop con- secrated by Monsignor della Chiesa was Gregory Lopez. The consecra- tion took place in Pekin in 1685. Monsignor della Chiesa died in 1721, after forty years of his life had been spent in missionary labors among the Chinese. CATHOLIC DELEGATE TO ARMENIAN CONFERENCE (By N. C. W. C.
