Cardinal Bourne, Lord Justice Sir Charles Russell, Count de Salis, the former British Minister to the Vati- can, the Earl of Denbigh, Mr. Hilaire Belloc anti Mr. Gilbert K. Chesterton were among the guests of honor. A number of graceful and interest- iaag speeches were made. Cardinal Bourne. in replying to the toast of his health, said that Catholicism was the great ideal which created the mighty Universities of Oxford, Cambridge, Padua, Prague, Salamanca anti Coim- bra. Anything, said the Cardinal, that could focus and guide opmmv on Cath- olic matters m any university was of enormous importance, not only for the Catholics themselves but for their fel- CHESTERTON ANSWERS BLAME00 PARENTS !MARRIAGE BY RADIO Disregard by parents for the ,nan- DECLARED ILLEGAL COMMENTS RECEIVED her in which their (laughters choose ON HIS CONVERSION I00beir recreat,o,00 is the problem with which Miss Mary E.

Y.---A marrmge cere- mony performed by radio is illegal, according to an opinion given by State Attorney General Newton when the question of the legality of the radio ceremony was brought up by a pro- posal to have a San Francisco clergy- man broadcast the ritual o tim ctm- tracting parties in the Grand Central Palace in New York City. Attorney General Newon declared that the phrase "in the presence," as contained in the domestic relations law, means an actual and not a con- structive presence. "it is as essential," he said, "that the witnesses and persons officiating should be immediately at hand, as it is that the contracting parties to the marriage should be in view of each othr." According to plans made for tim marrmge which Attorney General Newton declared would be illegal, the bride and groom were to broatlcast their responses to the minister's ques- tions.

A CRIPPLED ARMY The latest plan for reorganization of the regular army--the third which the war depmment has been forced to draft within the past eighteen months--reveals how far congress has gone toward the sabotage of the na- tion's land defenses. So sharply has the congressional axe fallen, plied un- der the specious cry of economy, that the army in a few months will be merely a skeleton army, and there will be virtually no mobile force in continental United States available for the Government's use in an emerg- ency. In its eagerness to destroy the military machine built up at great ..ost to the nation, during the war, 13ongress has ordered a reduction of the enlisted strength to 125,000, or 155,000 less than was provided for bY the amended National Defense Act, which prescribed as the chief mission Of the Regular establishment the training of the two other component parts of the Army of the United Statesv the National Guard, and the organized Reserves.

The novitiate must be separated as far as possible from that part of the convent reserved to the professed sis- ters, so that there be no communica- tion between th'e novices and sisters except by special and individual per- mission of the mistress or the su- perior. The whole purpose of this year's novitiate under a mistress is to form the mind of the novice by studious application to the rule and constitu- tion, to constant prayer and pious meditations, to serious instruction on the vows and the corresponding vir- tues; to suitable exercises calculated not dispose of her possessions, should she have any, as such disposition wouhl he worthless.
