Mr. Evelyn Waugh

Mr. Evelyn Waugh spoke on Recent English Catholic Writing in Bristol at the week-end at a regional conference of the Newman Association, opened by the Bishop of Clifton, Mgr. Rudderham.

He asserted that the finest English Was written in the period of Ruskin and Newman, and that it had declined ever since, finally ending with James Joyce.

" English literature, like architecture and painting, is largely a lost art," he declared. He attributed this in part to the fact that the classics are now seldom taught in schoolss.

Fr. Thomas Corbishley, Master of Campion Hall, Oxford, spoke on Recent Developments in Theological and Spiritual Writings. He also preached at the Academic High Mass on Sunday at the ProCathedral, celebrated by the Bishop.
