Beadle, the editor of the Washington Catholic, that he prevents Catholic students at the Carlisle Indian School from attending the local Catholic Church in Carlisle. Pratt responds by noting his arrangement with Father Hickey regarding allowing students to attend services that do not interfere with their school activities and invites Beadle to make specific allegations.
