News Service) Boston, Dec. 8. Conditions in Mexico today amount to "riotous, blasphemous communism," William Cardinal O'Connell, Archbishop of Boston, declared today in an inter- view on the occasion of his 68th birthday. "How cam any American be com- posed in the greatest happiness, wet- fare and fo~tupe of his o-~'n conntry ---which we have, of course, in all abundance---while at our doors is a condition of things wl~ich reminds one of the most barbarous times in history?" His Eminence asked. "We read with horror of the atro- cities that the pagan emperors in- flicted on the early Christians, and we seem to be umnoved in reading of the horrors which are being per- petrated by an unspeakz~ble dema- gogue who seems, whether it be true or not, to vaunt himself of the friendship of this country and sup- port of its Government. "I am not a politician. I am nox interfering in that respect. I am now speaking as an American citi- zen, proud of his own country and who must deplore this riotous, blas- phemous communism at the very doors of our country without, it would seem, a single pro~est~from anyone in high position whose voice would carry across the Rio Grande and influence someone to cease this wolfish hunting down of perfectly in- nocent Mexicans whose only c'rime i.~ their determination to serve God. "What is the real reason of all this silence? Of course, we have our rea- sons.for thinking there a~e influences not entirely imbued w':th the highest motives." * CHuR IANS ANNOUNCE ANNUAL HEETING PROGRAM (By N. C. W. C.

CATHOLIC CHURCHES AND SCHOOLS BEST VENTILATED, CLAIM (By N. C. W. C. News Service.) Toledo, O., Dec. 2.---The Catholic Church is an outstanding leader in the movement for improved air con- ditions in church buildings and is ag- gressively extending the uses of me- chanical ventilation in its parochial schools, according to a survey, the results of which have just been an- nounced by The Modern Science In- stitute, Inc., here. The leadership of the Catholic Church in this respect, the report says, is established by figures com- piled by ventilating engineers. The report points to the fact that 173 or- ders for ventilation installations re- cently received by a group of engi- neers were divided as to denomina- tions as follows: Catholic 29, Pres- byterian 24, Episcopal 23, Christian Science 22, Congregational 16, Meth- . odist 15, Baptist, Unitarian 2, and all other Protestant denominatfons 27.
