Cincinnati, Oct. 13. The question
of changing the name of the church
to the Holy Catholic was on the pro
gram before the Protestant Episcopal
convention today. It was expected
the matter would come before the
deputies through the report of the
committee on title page of prayer
book of the church, which was
scheduled to make its report. The
majority report opposes changing
the name, while the minority report
recommends the change. The reso

pointing a committee to consider an

also expected to come before the
