TANGIER AGAIN SIR,—Your readers made so good a response last

year to my appeal for the Carmel at Tangier that it is now completely finished and inhabited. So much for the Contemplative side of Catholic Action.

This success makes me bold to ask for help to start a branch of the " Apostleship of the Sea," and nowhere is this more important than in this international port of Tangier. The ethical level of the average Moorish guide is " subhuman," for his only idea is that of vice.

The Bishop in Tangier has formally sanctioned the creation of a branch and has appointed a Chaplain, so all that remains is to hire a room with its appurtenances, and start the work immediately. We hope to have a reading room and canteen where sailors of all nationalities can enjoy their shore leave, at the same time providing guides who will show them things of good repute rather than of bad.

The Marchioness of Bute has kindly given her patronage to this effort.

If any of your readers would help in the launching of this project perhaps they would communicate with AB.
