MINISTERS SCORE ALDERMEN FOR VIEWS ON IRISH ISSUE; PRIESTS DEFEND CAMPAIGN Theater's Seating Capacity Taxed, Despite Upholds Ireland's Desires, Supports Campaign. TROUP FLAYS MINISTERS Who Slurred Irishmen's Patriot- to Blood Shed for Cause of American Inde- pendence. More than persons packed Poll's theater yesterday afternoon where the drive for funds to aid In the setting up of an autonomous government in Ireland was form- ally launched by the Irish Educa- tional campaign. Defying the ram, crowds con- tinued to pour into the theater until all seating space was filled. Hun- dreds unable to find seats stood, as speakers, prominent among whom was Mayor Wilson, upheld the as- pirations of the Irish people for freedom and urged liberal support in the drive for funds. Denunciation of the protest made by the Pastors' association against the proposed flying of the flag of the Irish republic over the City hall and the holding: of a campaign for financial assistance here was voiced by Philip Troup of Xew Haven. Mr. Troup resented the slui cast by the ministers on the Ameri- canism of.Irishmen declaring: Jtesents Slur. "It was not an insult to true Americanism when the United States .was fighting against-the same tyrannical rula which England is now imposing on Ireland. It was not an insult to true Americanism when, in the time of George 'Wash- ington, the Irish people proved themselves the test friends of American independence.

Accusing- the board of alderman of meddlesomeness in following- the action of the United State Senate in giving recognition to the new Irish republic, Rev. Gerald II. Bcani, pastor of Park Street Congrega- tional church, yesterday denounced as seditious any movement to pro- mote "Sinn Fein doctrine aoJ Sinn Fein malignity" in this country. He was one of several members of the Bridgeport Pastors' association who made the Irish question the subject of their Sunday sermons. said Rev. IIr. Beard, "could well be more 'iledrtlesome Matty' in character than, the resolu- tion lately parsed by ihe D'mted States Senate concerning Trelamt, unless it be the silly and pompous document put out by the Board of Aldermen of Bridgeport informing :he National Congress that the time nad come to recognize tho 'pape- Irish Republic.'
