Two packed meetings in Jersey

People from all parts of the island streamed to St. Helier Town Hall, Jersey, on Saturday last for one of the biggest and most successful public meetings organised by Catholics in recent years.

Organisers were the Catholic Young Men's Society; speaker was Douglas Hyde. Both the English and French Catholic communities were represented in the audience by clergy from the various parishes.

The speaker's references to the demonstrated falsity of un-Christian ideas on the home and family were listened to with particular interest, for this " honeymoon island " had that week, under recently enacted legislation, had the first two divorces in its history.

Many questions were asked, which were continued on Sunday night when Mr. Hyde took many more at another crowded meeting in the St. Mary and St. Peter parish hall, which was devoted almost entirely to questions and answers.
