Such is the truth well known to the Holy See, to which from every part of Ger- many hands are stretched out begging for help.

News Service) Cologne, Dec. 3.Great indignation has been aroused in :Vestphalia be- cause of an announcement made in Berlin that the government plans to close the University of Munster. The e.nnouncement indicated an intention to discontinue maintenance of a num- ber of the smaller universities includ- ing Jena, G.oettingen, Giesen, arc, i Grmfsald. Westphalians object to including Munster in the list of those 'to be discontinued, pointing out that degrees from that institution, for theologians at least, rank among the most highly prized in Germany. The academy connected with the seminary of the Paderborn diocese has been closed recently because the Bishop did not have funds with which to support it any longer. > i: ! '
