For his schools
THE Bishop of Nottingham, Mgr, Ellis, related at a meeting last week that a wellknown Anglican recently approached him on the golf links. offered him a cheque for flO and said : " I admire your stand on the schools question." The Bishop. addressing the Nottingham Catholic Parents and Electors' Association, mentioned the incident as one of the encouraging signs that the schools campaign is having some effect on non-Catholics.
"There are a considerable number of members in the House of Commons who are impressed with our case that they are willing to put it forward in a strong manner,' said Mgr. Ellis, but he urged Catholics not to relax their efforts. He asked the C..A. to try to create enthusiasm in the parishes by setting up committees of the association. This may not always be advisable, he said, in parishes where other Catholic organisations are strong and active. In these cases the C.P.E.A. should work towards making the
various existing organisations " schools conscious."
Officers elected at the meeting were: Chairman. Mr. C. J. Iawson (Nottingham); vice-chairman, Mrs. V. D. Holmes (Leicester); hon. treasurer, Mr. I. W. W. Lining (Derby); hon. secretary, Mr. H. J. O'Donnell (Leicester).
