OBJECTS TO HOLY
Fr. Burke, of St. Thomas' Church, De-
nounces] Fresh and Other
TERSM AFFAIRS INSULTING
At a mass meeting on Sunday eve-
ning before 200 Catholic students of
the university, Rev. Fr. Thomas Burke,
of St. Thomas' Catholic church, de-
nounced in strong terms the freshman
and society dances held during Holy
Week and on Good Friday.
"These dances are an insult to the
Christian men and women students on
the University of Michigan campus,"
said Father Burke.
According to rumors which were
prevalent on the campus today, com-
mittees had been appointed at this
meeting to act in co-operation with
Bishop Kelly and Father Burke to
present a resolution to President Har-
ry B. Hutchins, requesting that he for-
bid any social events during Holy
Week, and also to make an appeal to
the board of regents to dismiss all
classes on Good Friday in future years.
Leo Covey, '17L, president of the
Catholic club, when seen late yester-
day said that all these rumors were
absolutely without foundation, as
nothing had been done up to the pres-
ent time in acting on the matter.
Several students who spoke at the
mass meeting Sunday evening criti-
cized severely the practice of profes-
sors in attacking articles of the Roman
Catholic church in their classes.
