Of the 220 boys in the eighth grade of the thirteen parochial schools of the city, 1 r»0 have expressed a desire to go to this school." It is planned- to build for about ."00 boys. The present building will give some eight classrooms, while it is in tended to have eight or ten more with adequate rooms for teaching of the sciences, a library, an assembly room, a place for exercise and a cafeteria.

ENGLISH PROTESTANT MISSIONS DELETE CHRIST'S NAME FROM PRAYERS. (By N. C. W. C. News Service.) Elimination of the name of Christ from hymns and prayers used in the English Protestant missions at Banga lore, so that no offense might be giv en to Buddhists and Mohammedans, has been upheld by the board of the London Missionary society, which con trols and finances these Indian evan gelizers. The news of this peculiar method of attracting Hindu converts to Christianity by suppressing the very name of its founder has, nev ertheless, raised a storm of criticism. It is disclosed in connection with this latest controversy that on two previous occasions, the board of the London Missionary society has found it necessary to pass upon the proprie ty of deleting the name of Christ from religious books, tracts and sermons addressed to the Hindus and Moham medans. In both these instances, the missionaries were sustained by the board against protests from support er»*fthe Bangalore missions. coin Ethnologists in many parts .of the that an intensive campaign for the ignited States will learn with regret erection of such a school will be death of James Moonev, for launched there shortly.
