Recently, the administrative authoritief of Upper Has aria decided that the Catholic school of Englschalking, a Munich suburb, was to he converted into a secular one, against the expressed wishes of the majority of the people. On the strength of this the Munich town council granted funds for rebuilding the school.

Meanwhile. the archiephiscopul office lodged a protest which had to be conceded as the original decision was clearly a violation of the concordat.

The purpose of the manceuvre is to induce parents to register their children for the secular school next year as the only means of sending them to a decent hygicaic school-building.
