"NUN-TEACHERS SHOULD BE ACTIVE IN UNIONS"

From a Special Correspondent

A direct appeal to nuns who are members of teaching orders to join their appropriate professional unions. and to be active in them was made by Mr. C. H. Sheill, secretary of the Metropolitan Catholic Teachers' Association, on Friday last.

The Cathedral Hall, Westminster, was filled to capacity for the Association's quarterly meeting. Present were some 60-80 nuns, to whom the secretary's remarks were directed. He also urged all other Catholic teachers to do the same.

Mr. Douglas Hyde spoke on "Communism and us" and made a special appeal to teachers to equip the young to meet the impact of Materialism when they leave school.

Mr. Hyde sketched the methods and ideals of the Communists, and urged all teachers to become working members in the professional unions.

THE RES01.1: iN

After some discussion a resolution was put to the meeting and carried, to the effect that, "as Catholic principles in Education are not understood in the professional unions, the members of this Association, whether religious or lay, primary or secondary, pledge themselves to belong to a professional union and to speak, work and vote therein."

Footnote: In Americo it is customary for nuns not only to be ltettibers of their trade unions but

to be active in them. Many hold official positions in the unions.
