Rabbit trap someone has invented a Rabbit trap that will quickly put the Rabbit out of misery by strangling it. The Only drawback about this Clever invention would seem to be that the rabbits May have to be trained be forehand to put their Heads in the right place. Otherwise they might take some Nasty squeezes on other parts of their Ana Tomies. The Sparks flew at debate on martyrs what grime did they commit when two experienced Public speakers and their supporters crowd into a Hall and get Down to the ques Tion 0/ whether or not the English Catholic martyrs were traitors the Sparks can be expected to Fly. And Fly they did in Manchester recently when James Baxter Lee Secretary of the truth seekers society proposed a motion that the men and women known As the English martyrs were indicted and sentenced to death for acts of treason against the Well being of the English James Norbury of the Catholic Evi Dence Guild opposed the motion and this is How the Din Dong rhetorical Battle went stage by stage. In round 1, with screened photostat copies of such documents As the Bull of excommunication of Queen Eliza Beth Cardinal Allen s letter to the pontiff on the number of priests hiding in England and reference to the writings of Catholic secular clergy of the period or. Lee fought hard to drive Home his Point that there was no persecution on purely religious grounds. What a pity in fact he said no one was put to death during the first 11 years of Elizabeth s reign. Any deaths after that period when the plots to remove her from the throne had beef Dis covered were executions after acts of treason had been proved. Ordinary clergy were allowed to go about in peace. The Root of evil and trouble Lay in the importation of Jesuit plotters from Cardinal Allen had admitted there were 300 priests hiding in the coun try houses of England. Only half of them were caught said or. Lee and what a pity we did t catch the take Edmund Campion As an exam ple. He was sent to England with Parsons to carry on the plot against the Queen. He was caught convicted of treason after a fair trial and put to death. Cold historical facts Are hard things to beat he concluded and ended his first round having been re minded. Several times that his half hour was up. Bearded James Norbury threw fact for fact and reference for reference Back at his opponent. Or. Lee had quoted Catholic historians to prove his Point. He Norbury would quote non Catholic sources. Who were these traitors of the 189 men and women who died during that period Only 20 were indicted on charges of treason and were put to death after trials which were mum Mery followed by Elizabeth had to introduce new acts into the statute Book. In 1559 it be came an offence not to embrace the new religion. In 1571 it was an offence to be reconciled to the Catholic Faith and later an offence to be a practising Catholic. Was this treason take the Case of blessed mar Garet Clitheroe crushed to death Between two stones at York for sheltering a priest. Was that an act of treason if or. Lee wanted to quote the trial of blessed Edmund Campion then he Norbury would step Down from the platform if one shred of treasonable evidence could be produced from the records of the trial. In round 2, or. Lee declared that Norbury had not denied papist plot one important document was missing. The Coronation oath of Queen Elizabeth. In that document she was alleged to have promised to protect the ancient Faith. It had pro Bably been removed by catholics. Norbury if the document referred to by or. Lee contained an oath to protect the ancient Faith and the ancient Faith was the Catholic Faith Why should catholics want to remove such a Strong piece of Evi Dence or. Lee in spite of his searching records had failed to answer the Chal Lenge on Campion s trial. Henry Viii had been dismissed too lightly and if in the period dealt with there was no religious persecution then where was the evidence of treasonable acts the debate was not thrown open.

On the Patroma feast of the institution his Grace celebrated holy mass for the Sisters and children. The Chil Dren Sang the Gre Gorian mass and the adore the devote. The simple Charm and Devotion of the children s so gig de slighted his Grace who after the mass spoke with the Little ones. The magic Bow the Story of the life of Paganini As portrayed on the screen is inaccurate in nearly every respect. Although it makes for Good entertainment Paganini s real life Story would have been just As Good for the purpose. This screen version has been based More on Paganini s publicity and in this Branch of showmanship he was unexcelled than on fact. Stewart Granger s impersonation of Paganini is True enough to the record to be convincing. With regard to the violin technique which he studied for the picture his bowing is remarkably Good his fingering Good enough but he gives the game away completely with his vibrato. Hussein.

That this Day the feast of the Assumption should have been selected As the Date of cessation of hostilities was no Mere co incidence. Strangely enough no move has As yet been made by any Public authority to commemorate this great event. The Opportunity is at hand for the Catholic Church to celebrate in a Way in which the event is celebrated in Catholic coun tires the great feast of the As sumption.
