Seldom has the devotion been ac- companied by such solemnity and cer- tainly never has been held with a grander demonstration of love for the Eucharistic King. The sanctuary was brilliant in its royal array of gold, red and white draperies, symbolic of the presence of the King of Kings. The many white blooms effectively brought out by the ferns and palms formed a fitting background for the imposing ceremonies:' Of more than passing interest was the splendidly arranged musical program rendered at all the services under the direction L__ PRIEST URGES CARE FOR CHILD'S HEALTH (By N. C. W. C. News Srvice) New York, Jan. 28.The series of inlimate talks on the home called "Home Making Hearths," which are given by the Rev. Daniel E. Kiernan, Ph. D., at St. Paul's church, have at- tracted a great deal of attention. The series which started last November, was scheduled to reach over a period of twenty consecutive weeks.

Longfellow, his biography being given by Miss G'l'ace Mitchell. There were several very interesting to raise at once a fund of St0,000,0C0 for the completion of the Episcopal cathedral overlooking the capital. The Rt. Rev. Alfred Harding, Episcopal .Bishop of Washington, pro ented tl projec as "a witness to tile spiritual ideals of America." "This," he con- tinued, "is the basis of tbc appeal we are now making to tile churchmen and chhrchwonmn of our land. We are convinced that this witness for Christ will be a potent agency in lift-i ing the minds of men to spiritual real- ities and thus coun:eract the trend so evident in our time toward materi- alism." I)oubtful Witness of Common Faith Bishop" tlardin2"s ;taten.enr: was conlmen(lab]y mo(let and e'trnest compared to that el: i)r.

In view of the favorable ac- tion already taken by the House Im- migration committee on the measure, it is almost certain that it will go to the President for signature hefore the expiration of the present Congress. Turks Hold Upper Hand Despite Urging action upon the bill Senator, Williams said: "Even the Soviet gov- ernment set aside the other day a lot of land in Russian Armenia for Ar- menian fugitives. The council at Lau- ] sanne has just surrendered to tbe[ Turks the demand fox' the homeland] for the Clnstmn Armen an pevp'e in I Asia. The Turks positively refused it, and there was not enough spirit in France, Italy and Great Britain to read an ultimatum to them.

A Peculiarly Tragic tIistory Senator Lodge also said: "I think, the Armenians, in whom I have taken I a very great interest, present a pecu-[ liarly tragic history.

The kneeling figures in cassocks and surplices evi- denced the importance of what was going on: :. without exaggeration. Mass of Reposition But the crowning event of this beau- tiful devotion was the Mass of Re- position on Monday. Father Cyril was the celebrant of the Solemn High Mass. Rev. Jas. P. Gaffney was dea- con and Mr. Taulty was sub-deacon. Mr. Hatch was master of ceremonies, The Paost minute detail was carefally considered that the closing scene might be enchanting and triumphant. The vestments of the officers of the mass, the priests and seminarians in choir attire eombined with the ,rich Gregorian chant of the choir complet- ed the pictures of beauty and splen, dot.

HOLY CROSS PLANNING STADIUM FOR 35,000 (By N. C. W. C. News Service) Worcester, Mass., Feb. 12.--The construction of a new concrete stadi- um constructed after the fashio of the Yale bowl and capable of seating I 35.000 persons is contemplatcd by Holy Cross College here. It is not ex- pected, however, that the project will materialize for several years and in the meantime the college authorities are going ahead with plans for. the construction of new stands on Fitton Field to be completed in time for use during the next football eason. The temporary stands will accommodat, 20,000 spectators. NON-CATIIOLICS ACCEPT 1 INVITATIONS TO CHURCH Denver, Feb. ll.--An effective method of bringing non-Catholics to lectures in the Catholic Church has been evolved by the Rev.

There was a song, "When the Leaves Tumble l)own," by Miss Christian Field; a violin solo, "Scene De Ballet," by Miss Althea. Franz; and a reading, "White Aza- leas," by Miss Mary Jones. The pro- gram was brought to a clo:e with a song, M smsspp Moon," by all of the members.

Thanks is also due I to Father Moran, who, by his ldnd-t ness, made the success possible. PRIZE OFFERED FOR PLAIN CHANT SINGING (By N. C. W. C. News Service) London,. Feb. 2.--A special compe- tition trophy, for excellence in the rendition of the Gregorian Chant, is being offered this year by the St. Pe- ter College, at Bearsden, in Scotland. The plain chant competition will be part of a musical festival that is be- ing held under Catholic auspices in Glasgow, for which already thousands ] of entries have been received. I-- absolutely refused to give them any land to live in. Probably half the pop- ulation that existed at the beginning Some Facts Overlooked It is to be observed that I)r. Free- man, in his enthusiasm overlooked the fact that there is in London another great moument to the Christian faith, the cathedral of Westminster, a Cath- olic Church, and that there is under construction in Washington a shrine devoted to the honor of the I'lessed I Virgin. And it remains to be seen how Dr. Freeman's enterprise will ap- ' peal to the Baptists, Methodists, Jews, Unitarians, Congregationalists, Pres- byterians, not to mention other de- nominations who consider themselves i a part of this great nation.

The Girl Guides Movement has re- ceived the warmest approval of Car- dinal Bourne and other high ecclesi- astical dignitaries, and now that the Catholics are making full use of the movement, it is becoming a powerful agency for a special branch of Catho- lic social work.
