NEWS AND NOTES

'V ^7E are about to observe two successive Days

’ ’ of Obligation. To-morrow, the Fifth Sunday after Pentecost, will be immediately followed by the Feast of Saints Peter and Paul. It will be fitting to hear Monday’s Mass, with exceptional fervour, for St. Peter’s successor on the Vatican Mount. Like the first Pope, the Pontiff now reigning lives and works amidst calumnies and persecutions. It is for us to see that the prayers, as well as the cares, o f “ all the churches ” are his portion. The divine promises to Peter cannot wither. A day may come when circumda tibi vestimentum tuum et sequere

me or argentum et aurum non est mihi will be a more timely text for the Feast of SS. Peter and Paul than constitues eos principes super omnem tervam; but neither in adversity nor in prosperity shall the gates of hell prevail.

Mr. Hoover has broken the stalemate in the world’s economics ; but we are not yet able to say whether the pieces will or will not come back to their old places on the board. The President o f the U.S.A. proposes an all-round suspension of war-debt payments for one year, so that national budgets may be more easily balanced and international trade promoted. A good deal o f money was made last Monday and Tuesday by practitioners on the world’s Bourses through the rise in stocks and shares which followed Mr. Hoover’s offer. At the moment of our writing these lines, the snag seems to be that Germany would benefit far more than any other nation from the moratorium and that France would be so much worse off that her tax-payers would have to find about £20,000,000 to make up for the stoppage o f Germany’s reparation-payments. But there is a simple way out of this. Germany’s financial engagements to the Allies o f 1914-1918 are split into two categories— the conditional and the unconditional. Even if she made her unconditional remittance to France, the Reich would still be about £60,000,000 to the good during the year contemplated by Mr. Hoover’s project. Our own country would be £ 1 1 ,000,000 worse off through the moratorium itself, but might perhaps benefit from the general economic improvement which Mr. Hoover is trying to induce. Whatever may be the fate of his bold scheme at the hands o f politicians and economists, there can be no doubt that the American President’s popularity will be largely restored by his venturesome act.

“ Spain votes to-m orrow.” Such is the crisp phrase in which the journals are alluding to the Spanish General Election ; but, like many other crisp phrases, this one is less than accurate. To
