Back in England after 40 years' absence, Bishop J. Baud, M.S.F.S., coadjutor with right of succession to the diocese of Vizagapatam, Madras Presidency, told our reporter: " Under the constitution of India we have no hindrance whatever, but enjoy full freedom to spread the Catholic faith."

The Bishop, a native of France, is 59, and member of the missionaries of St. Francis de Sales and he did his novitiate at Yeovil, Somerset, leaving in 1909 for India. He and another French bishop share in the work these missionary Fathers are accomplishing, in two separate dioceses, in the east of India.

Bishop Baud went especially to the Bingley Hall, Birmingham, Catholic exhibition. where he gave an address on the work of his missionaries.

Half of his clergy in India, and Sisters, too, are native, serving apart from parishes as many as four high schools, two English and two vernacular schools, and eight middle schools, seven of them vernacular. '' But my Christians are poor, and our financial resources are low," he said.
