in the article in our enclosed May

In post war years there will be
great need for Federal help for
public schools, particularly in ru
It is almost certain that the

The great danger is that the bill
of the Senate Committee on Edu

non-tax-supported schools, will be
defeated by Catholic influence.

man, House Committee on Educa

ported schools without funds for
parochial schools, and get others
2. Get organizations of which
you are a member, to adopt reso
