Kaitepy Monday will be a deci-
wvejlay for the Irish because it
wd!*lj|hu)rk their final break with
the British Commonwealth and
their country will bfecolne known
its the. Republic of Ireland.
Brushing aside politics, "there
is one interesting sidelight on the
birth of the Ttish Republic.
The revolt was put dowti, quick-
ly. After a week of savage fight-
ing in Dublin, the rebels were
defeated and fifteen of their
leaders were executed. But the
Irish never forgot the bitter re-
volt or their own determination
to be free.
Among those who took part in
the rebellion was Eamon De Val-
era, a New Yorker by birth who
was Spanish and Irish by blood.
When he Was two years old, his
father died and his mother decid-
18 ed that she wanted him to be
brought up in Ireland.
De, Valera was a college pro-
fessor. when the trouble—as the
Irish call it—started. He joined
the rebels and took command of
a band of fighters. De Valera
—I hi? men barricaded them-
selves a section of Dublin
known as Ringsend and held off
the British for days. But even
, though he made the British pay a
be | heavy toll, he was forced eventu-
.• j ally to surrender.
De Valera, by the way, was the
last of the rebel leaders to give
up. He did so with these words, j
their 1 “Shoot md, but spare my men."!
Instead, the British put De Valera
, »n trial and condemned him to be ,
Hrifi. That] executed. |
A question arose about his
status, however, since he had be< n j
proclaimed the (mm in this country and there-

west of Saltillo in the Willow

Frojp now on, there will
lie' ho question 'about the pro-
tunciatipn of the word E-I-R-E.
Some people called it "Eer-Ah,”
ind still other* pronounced it
“lie." The Irish said Air’-Ah. In

Polite as he was,
cou,ld speak out sharply enough
against the British. When he la-
ter .became a.force in politics, he
used these words to express his
stand, “All the British need is
the courage to abandon the in-
sane ambition to dominate the
Irish. That ambition has been
the curse of Great Britain and
Ireland for seven hundred arid
fifty years, '
Since then, the links" with Brit-
ain have been broken one by ©m.
A few remain, but jjiey have
been dictated by practical rea-
sons. For instance, the Irish will
remain citizens of the British
Commonwealth because many of
them make frequent, trips to Eng-
land or work there and it would
not be practical on that score to
regard them as foreigners.
In addition, Britain and the
Republic of Ireland will offer
