CATHOLIC BOOK CLUB

SIR,—Cannot some modus vivendi be arrived at to enable Catholic publishing houses to give their support to Messrs.

Foyle's Catholic Book Club? The fact that this venture has been started by a nonCatholic firm, in itself guarantees a wider circulation of Catholic books, than would be possible from an ex-professo Catholic firm. The man in the street would more readily approach the one than the other. Incidentally, if some such arrangement were made, those who have felt compelled to withdraw their patronage, might again give their support.

Otherwise one feels the justice of the remark made by a well-known Catholic publicist some years ago—that no Catholic work ever succeeds in England because people " will keep squabbling over the ha'pence."

" A Hearty Welcome to the Scheme"

SIR.—The essence of Catholic publishing is propaganda.

Messrs. Foyle can, through the medium of their Book Club, obtain from 5,000 new readers of Catholic books each month. We, on our own part, extend a hearty welcome to the scheme..
