Rigid stand- ards were erected and they are still maintained in the conducting of the bureau. The men who comprise the per- sonnel of the bureau are recom- mended by the officers of the various Holy Name Societies, by the spiritual directors and pastors, and by the officers of the Arch- diocesan Union. Members are given suggestions for topics of speeches, but a new member is permitted to make his own final choice of topic. He must then prepare a manuscript. This he submits to the office where it is checked for factual contents veracity, and for controversial ma- terial that might arouse argument. The novice speaker is given fur- ther suggestion for increasing the audience interest of the speech and is then assigned to address his irst meeting. Trained Critics Assigned The care in selecting and train- ing the speaker does not end here. A trained critic is assigned to the meeting and, unknown to the speaker observes the audience re- action, the poise and manner of the speaker and the freshness of presentation and material. The critic makes a thorough report of his findings. The second month the speaker is again assigned to address a meeting and a second critic covers the meeting. The two criticisms are carefully considered by the Office and the speaker is then called in for a third interview. He is told of the reaction of the audience to his speech, of methods of adding to its interest and utility. He is "then added to the regular speakers' list. If, for reasons of failure to in- terest an audience or other un- favorable reactions to his speech, the candidate is deemed unde- sirable, he is dropped. There is a regulation concern- ing the speakers who desire to run for an elective office. Any speaker who announces his can- didacy for office within one year of joining the bureau is required to resign. This clause prevents the chance that a man might have affiliated himself with the bureau with an ulterior motive in mind. Subject Matter Varies The subject matter varies wide- ly. Any topic of public interest is permissable, with preference to topics of genuine Catholic in- terest. The most popular are those dealing with the Catholic aspects of social and economic problems. Matters pertaining to the past and present Catholic history come next., further counsel in great leader- ship, in wielding the pen during the current year. My counsel is simple, direct and Apostolic. Continue, with well-filled pens your valiant fight in defense of the Holy Catholic Church and its millions of faithful worshippers not only in America but through- out the world, our plea is the plea of Christ, our purpose is the un- ion of men's minds with God. The mission of the Catholic Press is to gain souls for Christ. You should always keep in mind besides the defense of the Church the dissemination of the truths of Christianity for the purpose of winning souls for Christ. This is your mission; this is your glory. It seems that the masses of our people are awaiting something positive and certain in the form of religion. The chimes lie slunb- ering in the bell until the stroke awakes them. Souls Await Message In the United States, one hun- dred million souls are waiting to hear your messages. For some time, the human race has un- happily sinned against God. It is now somewhat abandoned by God and in great confusion, is "sitting in the darkness and the shadow of death." We are being prepared by God to receive again the sim- ple, fundamental truths of Chris- tianity and eternal' salvation. In such an hour of history, the grace of God will flow abundantly like a deluge. ST. ANTHONY'S HOSPITAL MORRILTON, ARKANSAS NEW BISHOP'S FATHER A CONVERT Mr. Charles R.

They Value of Convent Life Cited By Denmark Physician Rotterdam, Holland, Jan. 17.

The revelation occurs in an ar- ticle reprinted from Hojskolebla- tee, Danish weekly for Danish high schools.

Victoria station is within 400 yards of the Cathedral and the streets were packed with people when the boat-train arrived.

At the great west door of the Cathedral he was received by the West- minster Auxiliaries, Bishops Butt and Myers, and by the Vicars Gen- eral, Monsignor Bick_ford and Monsignor Lionel Evans.

Spain's Holy Year Extended by Pope Throughout 1938 Bilbao, Jan. 17. (E).--Because some of the most solemn acts as- sociated with the celebration of the Holy Year of Santiago de Compostela could not be carried out due to the war, and also be- cause Spaniards living in those sections still under Red ' control could not make the pilgrimage, the Holy See has authorized the continuance of the Year of Ju- bilee privileges until the end of 1938. This was done at the re- quest of the Most Rev. Thomas Muniz Pablos, Archbishop of Com- postela, who hopes that the civil war will have ended before that time and the great national pil- grimages, like those of other days, may visit the tomb of St. James the Greater. But the Spanish people are not waiting for the war to end and are going ahead with prepara- tions for large pilgrimages, par- ticularly an international Catho- lic youth pilgrimage. Despite the continuation of the special indulgences and other privileges throughout the present year, Vizcaya Catholics decided not to postpone their visit to Com- postela. Also, on the very last day of the old year, Don Nicolas Franco, a brother of General Fran- cisco Franco and Secretary Gen- eral of State, made the customary votive offering in the name of the StateU-a traditional custom which the Republic had suppressed. Bore returning to Bilbao, the pilgrims visited the wounded in the hospitals of Compostela and Padron, the ancient Iris Flavia, where the disciples, according to the legend, disembarked with the body of the Apostle which they had brought from Jerusalem.
