PROTESTANT MINISTER'S TRIBUTE.
Attention ot the Junior Order, Guardians of Liberty, Menace
boosters and other sham patriots, who would deny the rights of
Catholics In the upbuilding of the American republic. Is called to
the tribute of Rev. Frank M. Thomas, pastor of the Fourth Avenue
Methodist Episcopal church, South, this city, who In his address
delivered at the Washington birthday celebration In St. Mark's
church said, In referring to the part played by Gen. George Rogers
Clark and the Catholic colonists:
"It was on July 4, 177(1, Mint the reiirocntutiws of the colonies
.sounded out Mint Declaration of Independence which lias not
censed to proclaim liberty throughout the world, and it was on
tho midnight of July 4, 1778, that George Rogers Clark drove
deep into the territory or tho Northwest the Makes of empire.
"Having succeeded beyond hN expectations, Clark turned his
attention toward Vincennes. Father Gibault, n priest of
Kasknskia, and Dr. IiO Font, principal of Mie .Tcoult Seminnry
there, ventured to muko the trip to Vincennes, seeking to win the
settlement to the American cause without Mio aid of soldiers.
Gibault easily persuaded the Inhabitants of Vincennes to transfer
their allegiance, and in face of popular sentiment Mio few British
soldiers there could mnke no resistance and withdrew to Detroit.
Let all who would keep alive on American soil the bitterness
that was fanned by Mie Unities of religious prejudice in the Old
World recall how much America owes to Catholic explorers and
men like Gibault and TiO Font who dared everything for American

Writing of tho proposed National
University at Washington, Hon. Ed
ward J. McDermott, ex-Lieutenant
Governor of Kentucky, declares in
the current Issuo of America that
such an act upon the part of Con
gress would be unconstitutional and
points out the following objections:
"In a National University neither
religion nor any definite, practical
form of morality could be taught.
Would It be wise to foster under
Governmental sanction a propa
ganda of agnosticism? As a uni
versity training would necessarily
embrace ethics, philosophy, litera
ture, history, political economy and
the principles of government, there
would always bo a tendency In
active political leaders to seek- the
power to direct the teaching toward
such channels as would be most in
keeping with their,, theories and
party1 platforms? Therewould -hf j?
