To preserve family life, often so
quickly disrupted when foreign born
parents have American bom children,
and to make Amerlran citizenship a
tangible and desirable thing, are two
great tasks confronting both the
Church and State where the immigrant

English and a foreign tongue, through
classes tin English and citizenship,
through lay nurseries and clinics,
through teaching of American history
ideals and laws, and through the
preaching and practice of Christian
principles, the Centenary prepares to
tackle these two problems.
Such work will be carried on among
the 4,000,000 Italians, the 2,000,000 Lat
