POINTS FROM LETTERS

Legion of decency

Having read D. D., of Lanes' letter iegarding the flood of obscene literature, I think the time has come when we Catholics should do something to end this evil. The formation of a , Legion of Decency similar to that in t America is a good answer to this. The Legion of Mary has done grand work in the past few years regarding this evil in our midst, but I think the formation of a Legion of Decency would give more scope to the Legion of Mary.-1. B. K.

Rented scats

Rented seats are a nuisance, but in many places they may be a necessity. They provide a regular income for churches where in holiday time the congregation may dwindle to a handful. It is well to remember the general view that rented seats may only be occupied by those whose names they bear, if the latter take them in good time for the services. Otherwise anyone may legitimately use them. Seniority of renting, not social rank, should decide who has the hest places.-G. B. S.

Cruelty to children

I am asking for space in your columns to call the attention of Catholics to that most revolting evil in our midst-cruelty to children. As far as I know there is only one Society tackling this problem. and they are hampered in their work by the small sentences imposed on offenders. What is the Catholic contribution to this problem?

Library in Goa

We. a group of students in GOP, have opened a library some six years ago. As the library is founded and managed by students only, it need not be stressed that financially this institution is a handicap and has to go through a number of difficulties. However, a considerable number of Editors of magazines, newspapers, etc., in India and abroad have realized our position and have sent their magazines or newspapers to this growing institution without an!,' subscription. We shall he grateful to any reader who can regularly forward copies of Catholic papers and magazines. Demonise Btiotiete, Secretary. Rabindranath Vachanalaya, Santa-Cruz. Goa.
