WASHINGTON
PRIEST GOES
TO SEMINARY
The Rev. Fr, Duarte, of
Gonzaga, to Be Vice Rec
tor at Woodstock.
The Rev. 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.

SAYY'S WORK
AGAINST SEA
WOLVES GOOD
Operations Shown by Fig
ures to Be of Great
Difficulty.
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.
