Milan Decree To Get a
. Bitter Opposition
From the British.
IjONDON, Feb. 2 - The decree of a
.JUa*. Italy, court annulling a mar-
Haw* on Ihe ground that It won child*
less has aroused a chorus of discus-
sion here, mostly In disapproval.
-It is a gross impertinence in Italy
where won.en are not repiesented in
the legislature,” declured Miss Flor-
ence Underwood, secretary of 'he
Wontan'R Freedom league. “The ad-
vocates of compulsory nnnuhnent for
this reason will find no adherents
among British women."
"I consider." said Mrs. Hitdson-
Lyall. of the London County Council
and the Marriage Defense Council,
“that the proposal to make childless-
ness a compulsory or voluntary basis
lor annulment of marriage is not only
thoroughly unchristian, but a degra-
dation of womanhood. To regard
marriage as only a ntenns of rais-
ing children is a lowering of the
whole Ideal of the greatest and best
of human partnerships."
"The Roman Catholic church will
never tolearte such n decree, said
George Egerton (Mrs. Golding Bright)
the writer. "Marriage must be re-
garded as a sacrament nr a mere civil
contract. The Catholic church re-
gards it as a sacrament und never
will annul it on the ground of barren
“I say emphatically that childless-
ness is not a suitable plea to put in
(he foreground of an application for
divorce." says Havelock Ellis, the
pminent psychologist and eugenlst.
"Many of the happiest marriages are
childless. Far from encouraging the
birth of more children. I think the
birthrate Is far too high in Europe.

Both ut Chicago where the Repub-
