In regard to polltncs and socral questlons we find them dnt-ferent agam Tennyson s sympathles were deeply rooted ln Engllsh soil so he set down h1s vrews on these questrons and stamped them wlth Great Brrtam T nrough out hrs works we see the Constrtutron hke Zeus on Olympus w1th the world below awartmg 1ts nod From hrs poetry one would suppose that only the Englxsh nat1on had ach1eved h1gh deeds of sacrrnce and glory 1n battle Brownmg on the other hand was cosmopol1tan He was qulck to sympa thlze w1th natlons of the ancrent or the modern world wlth Greece or Rome or Spam or France or Germany or Italy The first great characterxstlc of hls poetry IS undoubtedly the essential elemental quality of 1tS humanlty tralt ln whrch lt IS surpassed only by Shakespeare In Browmng we have men and women as multxform as nature or soc1ety has made them Tennyson with exqursrte art mterprets the customs and comforts and proprletres of respectable Englrsh hfe the decorous and the Httmg rn the present order of thmgs Poverty and dlstress and humble llvmg dxd not msplre hlm Hls temperament hrs social rank hrs trammg at an old um verslty and h1s phxlosophlc learning all bred 1n htm a llberal conservatism H1s easy popularlty the fame whlch he reached at a bound strengthened hls lnchnatlon to accept thmgs as they were He was too mtellectual not to age but he was not the man to lead a reform or dzsturb the pleasant condl trons around hlmself Tennysons smooth melodlous art subjects d1d not represent the clashlng complexlty of llfe the turbulence and turmoll exther of the passlons or of the xntellect or of the movements of the world Many were the new dxscords approaching wrth the new era and few concords, but out of the dlscords emerged a steady thought and controlled emotlon ln one case at least that of Brownmg s poetry Tennyson hoped for th1s but was uncertaln and often lamented the fact But Browning was certam of hls hope and set hlmself to resolve the dxscords Tennyson was a slave to certa1n soclal and pol1t1cal conventlonalxtles and could not see beyond them They all bear the stamp of the hlgher type of Engllsh soc1ety and he rarely came out of hrs shell Browmng s poetry on the contrary IS free from the op1n1ons maxlms and conventlons of any perlod It belongs to no type of soc1ety to no speclal nat1on to no separate creed or church Both Tennyson and Brownmg are truly great poets whose contrlbutlons to Engllsh llterature have shed a glory over thelr own doubtmg mechamcal materlallstlc age and have enrlched the world wlth poems that could xll be spared The crown of England s laureates w1ll ever be greener from the brows of hnm who uttered nothmg base The poems Prosplce and Crossing the Bar have the same theme the last tremendous act ln the drama of mans llfe The one shows the xdeallsm of Tennyson the other the realism of Browmng Margaret Fa1rch1ld 21 19 , . . . . ! l Y v 9 ' ' . . . . . . -a v . . . , .

Sister asked I will gladly go through your beautrful Academy he answered and the tour through the house began From the parlor the D1rectress took her guest to the Science Hall This was a fairly easy matter to dlspose of and they passed on to Blessed Lady s Oratory which was a more difficult problem owlng to the supposed per suasxon of the visitor He seemed most attentive and reverent however while Sister explained 1ts purpose Evidently the gentleman too was ill at ease he had not anticipated such versation d1d not flow readily When they came to the Chapel the strangeness of the situation deepened To Sister s great amazement her visitor took Holy Water and blessed himself upon entermg genuflected devoutly and knelt for a minute in prayer What can all this mean? thought the D1rectress in utter bewilderment as they walked along the corridor in silence after leaving the Chapel They must have converted th1s man else he IS very broad minded doing in Rome as the Romans do He IS certainly a queer Rabbi so fair and so gent1le looking I wonder what I can start conversation on now? At last she remarked You were born in Germany were you not? Oh no I was born here But you were educated in Germany? I have never been in Germany CS1ster thmkmg to herselfj Am I dreaming all this? I m sure Ger trude told me that Rabbi Cohen was born in Germany What can this mean?

In the recital of her experiences her sincerity vibrated in every word and elicited a sympathetic response. Again the Primary Department was prepared to entertain with a play, entitled "The Three Questions." A very cute, clever play it was. The fol- lowing day these talented little actresses invited their parents and friends, giving the performance a second time for those who came. They sold many tickets, and the proceeds went to the Mission Fund. February 9-12, the students' annual retreat was given by Father Aloysius Breen, S. J., who explained in unmistakable terms the duty of Catholic girls regarding the immoral fashions and tendencies of modern society. February 21, Dr. Emmet Kane gave a forceful lecture explaining clearly the duty of women, Catholic and non-Catholic, to the Constitution of the United States. He urged the necessity of the beautiful virtue of patriotism now that women have an active voice in political affairs, and an enthusiastic love for our national ideals embodied in the Constitution, whose integrity should be intelligently and jealously guarded.
