Baltimore President. The Catholic Press Association I should like, in this Catholic Press Month message, to speak primarily to the priests and the members of the religious Sisterhoods and Brotherhoods, who are engaged in the work of Catholic education. Especially do I wish to speak to the teachers in the higher grades of our parochial schools and in our high schools--not forgetting that from the very first gade of our parochial schools the little boys and girls can be made missionaries for the Catholic Press. While, for the sake of conven- ience, I shall use throughout this article the first person singular pro- noun, I wish it to be understood that my remarks represent the Catholic editors of the country. After 16 years of Catholic newspaper work and 16 years of personal contact with my friends in the Catholic Press association, I am convinced that the hands of the parochial school pupils and the Catholic high school students hold the future of our Catholic Press . , . VCe pay to support our own schools, we pay to support public schools, and in many places we pay our share of the sales tax. But no share of the sales tax is re- turned to us as it is to our fellow- citizens. When we say that if money is to be provided for bus transporta- tion of public school children, we Catholics who help to pay for such transportation want our children treated also as human beings, we are told we have no respect for the Constitution. Let the Catholic chil dren walk--in sleet and snow and rain, in heat and cold, over danger- ous roads. Thus say the upholders of those who defend the Constitu- tion as a document guaranteeing equal rights to all. All the while Catholics, those who do not read the Catholic Press, surrender ab- jectly to the tyrants. Called Un-American We protest against a sex teach- ing in schools which concerns only thv utilitarian and ignores the mor- al aspects of sex matters, which shies at the mention of the word "sin." No matter what our pro- tests, we are called un-American• Only those who appoint themselves to run the public school system, to dictate to political candidates and to direct the various State as- HANSON & SANDS We have erected some beautiful Jobs for your friends.

We Catholics who are branded as un-American ar the ones who are trying to preserve our country, who believe with George Washington: that no nation can prospere if it rejects the teachings of God, flouts the laws of nature, adores the god of selfishness, and places personal and indivual comfort above the smile of a babe in his cradle . .. Warnings of Hierarchy But what has all this to do with my appeal to the teachers in our Catholic grade schools and high schools? All of us who have read much, studied much and heard much, must be convinced by this time that though the true Catholic mind is the logical mind, the sad fact remains that we have few members of the Catholic laity who can address meetings, and expose as the "Fascists" those who are directly and intentionally antagon- istic to Catholic thought• Members of the hierarchy and pastors of churches are warning our Catholic people against Communism and other evils• What response are CLAUS COLLIN & CO.

Furnitare WIRTZ & WIRTZ DeKalb County Home Furnishers FUNERAL DIRECTORS Spe¢lallste In Our Fields BISHOP REWARDS ESSAY WINNERS J The Most Rev. James E. Kearney, Bishop of Rochester, awards prizes to three Catholic college students, for their essays on the lec- tare'on Communism recently given there by Dr. George Herman Derry, national director of the Social Education Department of the Knights of Columbus, who is touring the United States and Canada lecturing on "The Red Peril and the Way Out." The contest was sponsored by Bishop Kearney. Left tO right: Robert Shatzel, Ni* agara University; Miss Norton Ransom, Nazareth College, and Ed- ward McAniff of St. Andrew's Seminary. they getting? By repeating, over and over again, their warnings, and through the aid of the Catholic Press and pulpit, in most instances they get a handful of people to attend lectures on Communism. But how many among our 20,- 000,000 or more American Catholics can answer the arguments in their offices, in the factories, in their lodge-rooms, of the well-trained Communist supporters? How many, I ask again, among our 20,000,000 Catholics are trained, logical speak- ers ? Let the Knights of Columbus or some other Catholic organizations arrange a series of lectures. How many do they get to attend the course of lectures? If they get consistently an audience of 400 members from a Catholic popula- tion of 300,000, 500,000, 700,000, they congratulate themselves. Is anyone to blame? There are thousands to blame. To be per- fectly frank, our Catholic schools are in some part to blame. Do not mistake me. The Catholic school is the best preserver and custod- ian of the Faith. If we had had Catholic schools in all parts of the South and in many parts of the West a century ago, the Kellys, the Sullivans and others who are going to Protestant churches would be kneeling at the Communion rail. Recent Improvement And if our parochial school sys- tem were in operation in some oth- er countries, not so many would be so negligent in their religious duteis. But the fact is that the Catholic Press has been ignored too much in our parochial schools and in our high schools• How of- ten are Catholic pupils in the grade schools a]d Catholic students in the high schools told to read par- ticular Catholic books or magazines or Catholic papers? I'll amend that question--How often were they asked to read such publications in the past? There has been an im- provement in recent years. ow many questions pertaining to Catholic attitudes or events have been' asked in the current history examinations? How many [ M ARGINOTES Art Kuh! of The Queen's Work (Uncensored notes of an intereeted. independent bystander.) RETREAT FROM MILWAUKEE Much the wzser--and much the wearier--I have dribbled in from iilwaukee. The Queen's Work editorial staff--a tremendous aggre- gation of two-was up at Marquette university. Dean O'Sullivan of the school of journalism---one of the leading figures of the Catholic Press, and that means the inter- national press--kindly took several days off, turned the school slight- ly haywire, and helped us make the Sodality sheet slightly more professional. Which is meant to explain to anyone who is interested the rea- sons for this column's being late. Or hadn't you noticed? At any rate it is also meant to explain why the column is about this and that; things may have been happening, but they have slipped right past me. Things have had an annoying habit of doing that lately, until I begin to wish that a layman with a little time took over this job. But it is a very small wish, and I hope that no one takes me seriously. STRICTLY OFF THE CUFF At a meeting of young Catholics the other night Father Dowling of The Queen's Work asked how it happened that not one of the 21 young men was as yet married. The answer was the seemingly in- evitable one: finance• And so Fath- er Dowling asked what the men thought was a necessary salary for marriage. Did they think a couple could be married on eighty-five dol- lars a month? A hundred? The consensus was that, a hundred dol- lars was the minimum, the bare minimum. "Then what," asked Father Dowling, "about the mil- lions in this country who are mak- ing less than a hundred a month? How can they safely get married? You men here are working under a system that's completely haywire; yet you are content to string along with it, take certain of the minor advantages of the system, and do nothing to change it. You say that you have to be making one hun- dred dollars a month before you Fraud Used In can get married; well suppose that you earned the hundred. What Circulating Note about the others who can't?

The young- sters are enthusiastic, they arouse the interest of their parents. The teachers encourage them. Stories for Children We Catholic editors, for the most part, are realizing that we must mix with our more substantial food for our readers, stories of interest to children, sports stories, features for women. Once you get some- one reading a Catholic magazine or newspaper, he will go from the lighter food to the more substan- tial. The young readers of today will be the Catholic leaders of to- morrow• We call the attention not only of the pastors, the leaders of the Na- tional Catholic Educational associa- tion and the Confraternity of Chris• tian Doctrine. to the good they do by advising more interest in the Catholic Press. Surely, we are not asking too much of our pastors and their cur- ates when we request that they re- fer briefly every Sunday to one or more articles of interest in the Catholic Press. I know one pas- tor who has done so for years, and the number of readers of the Cath- olic Press in his par{sh is excep- tionally high. Nor can I fail to pay tribute to the N. C. W. C. News Service for its wonderful work, under the dl- rection of Frank A. Hall, The News Service has enabled us to report the news of the world, to re/ate i mlsstatements in the secular press, !and to impress upon our readers themselves to be deceived" by a mayor who has "come out into the open with a policy which every Catholic, and every Americau citi- zen who holds that the Constitu- tion is something more thar a scrap of paper, must unhesitating- ly reject." The editorial entitled "Red Bait. ing," appeals to Catholics general- ly to beware of supporting public officials who deny constitutional tights to any group. "We must not fight Communism by destroying constitutional guar- antees," it says. CIO Also to Blame While pointing to Communist at- tempts to "bore in" on labor un- ions, it warns against the conclu- sion that the CIO is "governed by orders from Moscow' and deplores the fact that ."the responsible lea- der of the CIO has done little to dissipate this opinion." "Within the past few weeks a political leader has come out into the open with a policy which ev- ery Catholic, and every American citizen who holds that the Consti- tution is something more than a scrap of paper, must unhesitating- ly reject•" the necessity of developing the Catholic mind. We must not forget that while we of Mother Church have the Catholic Heart that enables us to preserve the Faith, we need the Catholic Mind to strengthen the weak and to bring others to the Faith. The editorial then expresses deep regret that "a number of Catholics, and one or two Catholic societies, have allowed themselve They "Mean Well" "No doubt," it continues, "the purposes of these Catholics are above reproach• But what they are actively promoting is the suppres- sion of a right which • every min- ority, and particularly we Catho. lice sorely need: the right to spea k and publish our opinions, free from censorship, responsible to the civic authorities for what we shall sayi only to the extent that in speak-!
