From Our Own Correspondent


Mgr. Ellis, Bishop of Nottingham, spoke once more on the schools' question when he opened a bazaar at Iincoln in aid of the school building fund of the Church of Our Lady of Lincoln, the Oval, St. Giles. " You will have noticed," said Bishop Ellis, " that the headquarters of both political parties have said they cannot see their way to building any further Catholic schools. Do not be dismayed by that but continue your struggle for justice." Catholics were paying rates and taxes for education as were other citizens and on top of that they had to find something between £50,000,000 and £60.000.000 for the sake of relieious teaching in schools, which really meant they had to pay for the sake of conscience. Opened in 1943 when Our Lady's first became a separate parish, this has now reached £2,000 towards the 06.000 aimed at for church and school building purposes.
