Sue—The University Catholic Federation, which for the past twenty years has cooperated with university groups abroad through Pax Romanis, is anxious to make contacts with Catholic university students and graduates from the Dominions, and allied countries. There must be many such in Great Britain at the present time, and they are cordially invited to attend the next meeting of the Federation to he held in Manchester, February 21 to 23. Hospitality can be offered to a limited number of visitors, and all interested are invited to communicate immediately with Miss M. Rowland, 294, Ordsall Lane, Salford 5.
Much good work is already being done by several Catholic organisations in offering hospitality to members of the Forces, and I would urge that the work be taken up by the Catholic community as a whole, especially by thoee who can offer hospitality for short periods in their own homes.
Comparatively few people seem to realise the importance of having on British soil the Governments and armies of so many European nations, as well as our kinsmen from the Dominions. Here at least is an opportunity, even in the midst of war, when disasters have brought us together, of breaking down and discarding for ever that attitude of aloofness which had caused so much misunderstanding abroad. If this be done, then when victory comes, there may be a real chance of fruitful co-operation in Europe.
