McBee, Silas: New York, (New York)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

The fine interpretation of the June Constructive Quarterly which appeared in the June 15 issue of the Ave Maria was very stimulating. Would it not be helpful if the writer should contribute an article to the Constructive.

Raupert, J(ohn) Godfrey: Chicago, (Illinois)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Raupert's friend, Michael Williams, informs him that he sent a copy of his new book "The High Romance" in care of the Ave Maria. Raupert is very interested in Williams, and met him in California last year. He will do great work for the Church. Raupert has now finished his new book. One copy is with the "America" people who are going to condense it into two or three articles. Raupert is not at all anxious to be associated with Hearst & Co., but it is a chance to reach the non-Catholic world. The enemy is carrying everything before him. Then there have been stupid statements like that of Dr. Walsh who is not yet convinced. Raupert cannot imagine what induced Father Tierney to print that silly article. The prophecies of the late Pope are being fulfilled. Patneau and Dodd Mead & Co. have written asking to see the manuscript of his book. Raupert was thinking of going to the Benedictines at Collegeville for the rest of the summer but he thinks it will have to be New York instead. Would Hudson be interested in getting out his "The Divinity of Christ"? He will have an article on "Spiritism" in the "Extension Magazine" next month.

Hudson, Father Daniel E.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)
 to Father G(ilbert) Francais, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Indiana

It is too late to withdraw the article. Not hearing from Francais, Hudson's impression was confirmed that there would be no objection to the article strong as it is. As Francais will notice from the clipping enclosed "Perversity and Patriotism", Hudson's editorial is in keeping with official action. Francais has only to make known his further wishes in the matter.

In Francais' opinion it would be better not to publish this.

Culemans, Father J( ) B.: Moline, Ill(inois)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Culemans thanks Hudson for the straight-forward and true language in "Perversity and Patriotism". Culemans has tried, unsucessfully, to put a stop in the public press to the calumnious stories of the mutilation of Belgian children. He had proofs from the most reliable eye-witnesses and from the Commission for Relief in Belgium but it was to no avail. He has heard Protestant ministers on the subject with utter disregard for truth and some Catholics are not much better. Culemans sends $3.00 for Sister Gertrude, Kiou Kiang, China.

Metcalf, Father Theodore A.: Brookline, Mass(achusetts)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

"Notes and Remarks" of today's Ave Maria refers to a recent statement about Ireland's share in the present war work. Americans will grasp this fact better by having "British War Records", which show that 58.1 per cent of the Irish available for service had already volunteered to January 1 of this year. At that rate the United States should have 5 million volunteers. No wonder the Irish oppose conscription. Can someone bring these facts to the public?
