The Lecturers and Lectures

This year's Catholic Social Guild Summer School at Oxford, about which the Catholic Herald gave some preliminary particulars a month ago, is now able to announce its programme in detail.

At the opening pontifical high Mass, sung by the Bishop of Hexham and Newcastle, president of the guild, the sermon is to be preached by Fr. F. J. Grimshaw, D.D., director, in the diocese of Clifton, of social studies for Catholic Action.

Three Lecture Courses

The studies of the school are arranged in three main courses. Fr. Lewis Watt, S.J., B.Sc.(Econ.), of Heythrop College, lectures on an introduction to the Encyclical Quadragesimo Anno. M. Andre Toledano, a former member of the League Secretariat and a well-known contributor to French Catholic periodicals, discusses "Current International Affairs: Dictatorships, Communism, Modern Democracies, International Co-operation." Fr. J. E. Coffey, S.J., from U.S.A., now working at Action Populaire, Paris, speaks on "Colonies and Mandates."

The third group of lectures will deal mainly with local government and public administration. With the exception of Dr. L. D. Fairfield, M.D., D.Ph., barrister-atlaw, who speaks on "Public Health," the lecturers will be men who have been trained at the Catholic Workers' College.

Councillor W. F. Smith, the enginedriver Mayor of Newport, 1934-35, will lecture on "The County Borough." Councilor M. Brennan, J.P., a Durham. miner and chairman of the largest Rural District Council in the country—Easington, Co. Durham, speaks on "Rural Authorities"; Mr. G. Garrigan, a former Durham miner, on "The Future of Local Government', Messrs. T. Leyland, J.P., organising secretary of the guild, and Mr. P. Thompson, a probation officer, on "Juvenile Delinquency."
