Augustus J. Duarte. 8. J., vie* president of Ctonuit College, founder and president of the Washing ton Truth 8oclety and of the Catholic Women's Guild, founder and director of the Catholic theater movement now established throughout the country, and one of the foremost educators In the Jesuit order, left Washington last night to assume the position of vice rector of Woodstock Seminary, the leading Catholic theological Institu tion In America. Transferred to Washington from Loyola College, Baltimore, eight years ago. Father Duarte brought together a body of local Catholic leaders and established the Washlnffon Truth So ciety, whose vigorous activities In de fense of Catholic Interests attracted attention In this country and In Europe. Among the rules of the so ciety laid down by Father Duarte was one that "no printed falsehood concerning the Holy Father shall be allowed to pass without a printed cor rection." Catholic Theater Mevemeat. In 1911 Father Duarte started the Catholic theater movement, which was soon afterward taken up in Bal timore by the Knights of Columbus, in New York by Cardinal Farlev and in Boston by Cardinal O Connell. In a strenuous campaign for the elimina tion of stage Indecency, the local movement Joined forces with the Y. M. C. A. and the Monday Evening Club. Fifty of the leading Protestant pastors of Washington augmented the strength of the movement, and after a wholesale aerie i of arrecta and con victions, one local playhouse was closed and theatrical conditions Im proved. Leading Washington thea trical managers and a number of prominent stage favorite*, including Miss Ixetta Jewel, assisted in the campaign. Father Duarte .vas made vice presi dent of Georgetown University and remained there until 1913. when he be came vice president of the New Gon zaga College. When the United States enteied the war he founded the Cath olic Women's Guild, whose assistance to the army and the navy has bee A officially commended. One year ago Father Duarte directed the first Washington production of the famous passion play of "Ober-Aramergau.' PROHIBITION YIELDS GROUND TO REVENUE War-time prohibition has tem porarily given ground in favor of war revenues, and will not take ef fect at the earliest, should the bill pass the Senate, before July 1, 19l?. A billion dollars In revenue, to come as a tax out of the pockets of those who use alcoholic beverages, Is the argument that won over the Senate prohibition leaders to an agreement not to press the Issue for immediate nation-wide prohibition to last for the period of the war. Th? Prohibitionists gave ground with the greatest reluctance and it required the personal Influence of PrasUint Wilson finally to turn thd balance and persuade them that they would best serve theii' country and give more aid in winning the war by allowing the government to take its toll of war revenue from alcoholic beverages and avoid con i sumption taxes on the necessaries of life which would apply to all alike and reach Into the poorest homes of the land.

Figures furnished from official sources yesterday show the value of the work that has been don* by tha navy on thia aide of tba Atlantic In opposition to tha two ralda.of tha German U-boats. Tha problem, it was1' stated, was this: There are 1,000 miles of coast to guard and it was and is necessary to guard it to st least a distance of 100 miles from the shore line. This makes a total of 100,000 square miles. It would be necessary to em ploy 1.000 sbipa on the basis of one to every 100 square miles, that Is. each ship would have to cruise on a square which was ten miles on a side. If. however. It was possible to utilise only 100 ships, which is a large number, each ship would have to cover an area of 1,000 squsre miles. It is pointed out by officials that with that enormous task before the navy tba number of ships sunk has been very small, and thia is the more remarkable since the United States was obliged to concentrate tbe batter part of its available force on this aide on the transport service, while giving the allies the duty of convoying In large part the supply ships snd other semi-commercial vessels. These officials say that once the figures are given there will be no misunderstanding either of the great obstacles in the way of catching sub marines or reducing their sinkings to, a minimum. It Is believed now to a certainty that the one trawler con verted into a raider has been sunk by the German themselves. It was stated by an official that on the other side the Germans put that fcherae Into practice and that there Is proof that after at most two raids by the trawler aha was sunk. It is un derstood that the navy has made such dispositions off the Grand Banks that there will be no more serious Inter ference with the fishing fleet.
