Thirty English Jews have been converted during the year to the Catholic Church of England, it was claimed at a meeting of the Catholic Guild of Israel, a missionary society at its convention here.

Father A. Day urged that the Catholics redouble their efforts to obtain Jewish converts, saying that even one Jewish convert was an inestimable gain. The priest declared that the Catholics have more in common with Jaws than they have wish Protestants and that Catholics should capitalize this fact in their missionary work.
