LORD PAKENHAM GETS LAUGH FROM THE BOYS

Lord Pakenham, Minister of Civil Aviation, who presented prizes at Gunnersbury Catholic Grammar School. W.4., on Friday last week, was applauded when he laughingly observed: " If one cannot achieve fame, the next best thing is to obtain notoriety.

" As I see it, you have achieved fame when the newspapers think you have done something exciting; you have achieved notoriety when they -think something exciting may be done to you."

Although the Catholic faith was simple enough to be understood by a peasant woman." said Lord Pakenhain. " it was full of infinite complexity." The boys had a duty to cultivate their mental powers to the full, in order to understand the faith to the full extent possible for them. " It is not possible to be a good Catholic. and neglect the training of one's mind," he added. Ciunnersbury Catholic Grammar School had been accented by the Ministry of Education as a voluntary aided school, the headmaster, the Rev. R. J. McCliment, 0.B.E., M.A., said in his report to the parents.
