Fr. C. C. Martindale, SJ., has forwarded to us another heartrending appeal from China. It conies from the Breton Jesuit Bishop, Mgr. Haouisee, Vicar-Apostolic of Shanghai. it will he recalled that the Prefect. Apostolic of Shanghai cabled for relief funds a month ago. The Bishop writes:—
" The War involves not only the death of many au innocent victim, the devastation and ruin of many a Ninny, but also—if not the ilestrnetion—at least the arrest of wally a fine Catholic enterprise for. probably. a very long time . . and . . will render the Vicariate responsible for thousands of refugees.... Already, on the two banks of the river, some of our finest Christian Establishments are ruins. Our vital creations, like the Aurora University and our seminaries, are paralysed; no help reaches us: 300 houses which assisted us are already ruined or burned Even further inland. I can no more help my priests nor enable them to continue their schools or eatectuninates...."
Funds in aid of the Bishop's Vicariate may be remitted to Mgr. Haouisee, Vicariat de Shanghai, Grand Seminaire, Zikawei, Shanghai, China.
