RELIGIOUS ISSUE IS IN THE
MAYORALTY CAMPAIGN 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 in. We are trying to get it out of politics." 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." After making other charges of al 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 tioned. o o MRS.

CALL SINKING OF FRYE AN UNFRIENDLY ACT Amsterdam, March 12. The Ger man government regards the sinking of the American ship William P. Frye by the Prinz Eitel Fnedrich as en tirely unwarranted. The news has created the most painful impression in official circles at Berlin. A strong protest is ex pected from Washington, though none has as yet been received. This protest, when it is made, will be met in a most conciliatory spirit and Ger many will assure the Washington government that CapL Thierichens acted solely upon his own responsi bility. Washington, March 12. Prelim inary reports placed in President Wil-. son's hands covering sinking of the American sailing ship William P. Frye by German auxiliary cruiser Prinz Eitel Friedrich declare act entirely without justification. Meanwhile officials here were ex pecting that Germany, of her own volition, will open matter, but the mere assumption of responsibility and payment of monetary damages will hardly prove satisfactory to this government. Germany will be ex pected to disavow and promise to punish commander of Prinz Eitel Friedrich. o o SIX WOMEN IN MAYO CASE New Haven, Conn., March 12- Six women were today enrolled in the trail of heart affairs of Virginius J.
