These five houses under the care of the Sisters have cared for women who in Many cases would have become outcasts following their arrest on charges of a Misdemeanour character. During 71 years of the ministrations of these Good Sisters to fallen members of the Community the Homes have been supported in a measure by members of the Catholic Faith in the diocese of Philadelphia assisted by annual appropriations from the state. During the past year the state appropriation was withdrawn regardless of the fact that the greater number of the Home inmates were of other denominations than Catholic. This act on the part of the legislature has thrown the Burden of the Upkeep of the Homes on the catholics of the diocese who evidently without consideration of a the beliefs of those sent to these in-1 hit Tutins Are now coming to the Aid Sisters of the Good Shepherd.

Continued on Page three i editor of the Independent j dear sir in the Trenton evening times of october 26th, 1921. I noticed an article calling attention to the citizens of this Borough a project to Issue $150,000 Bonds for the purpose of erecting a new a Public an elaborate High school. The citizens of this Borough Are carrying As much indebtedness and in tact. Much More than conveniently handle. J his Borough should have an extra elementary school in the 4th Ward Large enough to relieve the congestion of other schools. Outside of some needed improvement the Bristol High school is fully suitable for the Small number of High school students of this town. I am told that the largest class that graduated from it was 14, so Why should an elaborate High school which would Cost at least �?~�?~$250,000�?T�?T be built for so Small a number and especially at this time when Money commands such a High rate of interest and where the expenses of building Are still so great. Instead of building a new High school for a few children it would be better to pay off some of the standing indebtedness and after that if the number of High school students should increase sufficiently to justify the expense then we should think of an elaborate building but not before. It is to be hoped that the citizens of this Borough will consider these facts and thereby Endeavor to make this Borough a suitable place for strangers to Settle in instead of making it prohibitive by the heavy burdensome taxes. I very truly yours r j-1�?z a Reader. Editors note a the fact that the write saw the school Bond announcement in the Trenton times who wild indicate that the special a tides of Doron Green in the a daily their halloween party dance will go Down in history As one of the greatest Ever in keeping with their annual custom members of the Loyal order of i Moose in tip tailed on halloween i night about 200 guests consisting of the wives daughters and sweethearts of Tho members. As the visitors entered the spacious hallway of the Home decorations of Green and Gold along with a varied display of cow pumpkins of enormous size and Many of the real pie kind met their View. Corn husks and autumn leaves added much to the impressive and Joyful i Celebration of die fall event in which All present took part in a spirit that proved the efforts of the committee were appreciated. Forces orchestra furnished Lively music for dancing which was one feature of the program that continued until the Small hours of the morning everyone apparently loathe to bring the affair to a close. During the evening a luncheon was set \ de. And though Many grotesque costumes worn on the occasion afforded an abundance of fun for All present. The question Lias been asked has the Phyfa. Office of the Southeastern Penna. Chapter of the Ainer Iran red Cross Given any Money for red Cross work in Bristol in 1921?�?� it most certainly has. For Home service that is work among the service and sex service i have drawn from the chapter from january 1st, 1921, to november 1st, a period of ten months $4 80.23. Of this amount $60.87 has been Bien to italian sex soldiers. Sixteen men have been Given sums varying from $1.00, the smallest amount to $260.81 the largest amount which went to one totally and permanently disabled Man. His Case has now i been settled and in the future he will receive government Tion. Of this $480.23, $30 has been paid Back representing Money loaned to two cases leaving a total amount Given of $450.23. Signed Frances in Landreth chairman Home service red Cross. Write when you go to them and ask redress they say a mistake has been made and feeling secure because of the Power of their owner they ignore any request to make corrections. If the correspondent who turned in the offending article is questioned he in the pal t titular Case i refer to simply states a it is Only the a daily bladder wily worry a in the Issue of october 31st, the a daily excuse published an item which stated that or. And airs. Co i Heil had adopted a girl child and went on to state that the couple were elated Over the new addition to their family. There is absolutely no foundation of fact to the statement and mrs. Cohen has been greatly disco Moded by its publication. Legal advice is being sought with the intention of bringing suit against the Bristol printing company and its owner for the inconvenience and worry caused the Good woman through this statement. In concluding her remarks about the incident mrs. Cohen who was greatly perturbed stated a if i were to adopt every child who visits my Home i would soon be mothering a or. Cohen yesterday called up the office of the a excuse a and talked with the much retitled manager of the paper who told him or. Col Enthat the a a excuse conv not afford to deny the Story. He the much retitled one stated that other people told him the report of the adoption was True and despite what or. Cohen might say he could not afford to deny it. Tax payers forbidden to been tide the car that the township furnishes to transport pupils to and from Harriman. They have not Only been forbidden but the trolley company have been ordered to keep them off the free car and instructed i specifically to carry Only pupils who attend the Harriman school. This order to the trolley co., was issued by township superintendent Faust and it is natural to suppose that he must have been Given authority or possibly have been instructed by the members of the township Board. These Little pupils whose parents wish them to receive a parochial school education Many of them Are forced to walk the several Miles each Day Between their Homes and the school walk when there Are seats to spare in the Mammoth car that is furnished by the township for their More fortunate playmates to ride in. There is no difference made in the tax slips Given citizens of the township the catholics Are assessed equally with those who Are not of that Faith and they must pay their taxes or the authorities will know the reason Why yet when it comes to a free ride to and from their Homes to school it is a different proposition. It would seem to a disinterested observer that the authorities should be delighted to be relieved of the necessity of educating and furnishing teachers to instruct these Twenty one front of St. Marks to let them off. And again to take them on. There is one child who last year j attended the parochial school who is this year an attendant at Harriman j her parents had no desire to take her from the care of the Sisters but they could not afford to pay the daily fare to and from her Home and did not wish to have her walk the sever a a1 Miles a Day and in desperation j sent her to Harriman. This child each morning when the car passes the Sisters on their Way to school Waves her Little hand sadly to them with a longing to again be with them but being too poor to pay car fare she must accept the free ride from the township but by so doing is forced to attend the township school. If the township school authorities Are trying to prevent children from attending a parochial school where they receive religious Ais Well other instruction they should Only be drummed out of office drummed out of the Community Well. If this is the reason for action of the superintendent county schools in forbidding parochial school children the use of the tree trolley he should not be allowed to remain in office. If this is not the reason then let the authorities and the superintendent come out in the open and make a statement of the True facts of the Case so that the Public May judge As to their fitness to retain the respect and Confidence of the Broad minded members of this Community. Religious prejudice should be stamped out of this Community if it really exists Here the Days for religious persecution Are supposed Long ago to have passed. Now that an existing condition has been made Public it is Likely that Broad minded citizens non Catholic As Well As Catholic will voice their sentiments and Force the authorities to Tea Down the seemingly High Fence of religious bigotry it is claimed they have erected.
