RELIGIOUS ISSUE IS IN THE
The religious issue is in the may
oralty campaign, even though the
newspapers say nothing- about it. It
is in through the circular route. One
circular is being distributed all over
town, from a non-Catholic source, in
which the statement is made as to
bringing religion into politics: "We
are not bringing it in. It is already

It then quotes from the Chicago
Herald of Jan 19 the statement that
in a sermon at St Patrick's church,
Father McNamee said: "Catholic
women especially should vote, if for
no other reason than that the vote of
non-Catholics will tend to nullify the
votes of Catholic men."
The public schools are brought in
with this statement: "We now have
a board of education that is con
trolled by Catholics, and that the
president of the board is a Roman
Catholic, who educated eight chil
dren in the parochial schools and is
himself raising funds to build a paro
chial high school on the west side."

leged Catholic influence in the public
schools, the circular winds up with:
"This is a political question. Vote
for a mayor who is an American citi
zen and does not take orders from
Rome. Save our public schools. Do
your duty as citizens at the polls."
The circular bears toe union label
444, and at the beginning the state
ment is made that it is "issued by the"
American Public School Federation."
No candidates or parties are men
