RIGHT DOUBLE PARKING IS BAD BUSINESS Most cries prohibit double park ingand for good reason. In the first place the practice slows do wn and "gums up" the traffic flow. In .the second place it is danger ous, as accident statistics prove. Traffic engineers condemn the practice and recommend single par- allel parking within six inches of the curb. In some communities with unusually wide streets angl e parking is permitted, but from the safety standpoint parallel cur b parking is preferable. Catholic Radio Cal s Catholic Press 'The Hour Initiated Modern Apostle' In Shanghai Chicago, Feb. 14. (EL--The Cath- olic Press was called the "Mod- era Apostle" by the Rev, Jerome Shanghai, Feb. 4. (E).A regu- lar Catholic radio hour will be a feature of mission endeavor in China during 1938. It will be conducted by outstanding speak- ers from the Shanghai American Jesuit community--the Rev. Leo i F. McGreal, Rector of Gonzaga !College, the Rev. J. F. Kearney, formerly Professor of the Philo- sophy of Literature at Santa Clara University, and the Rev. J. K. Lip- man, one time Professor of Geo- logy at the University of San Fran- cisco. The talks are being given once every two weeks from the Church of Christ the King over Shanghai's most powerful station XMHA. The series was begun by "the Rt. Rev. Msgr. William C. Mc- Grath, Vicar Apostolic of Lishun, who was heard in America over the N. B. C. Christmas Day pro- gram from China. Temporarily marooned in Shanghai because of the complete severance of all com- munication with his mission in Lishun, Chekiang, Monsignor Mc- Grath devoted his efforts to a series of radio talks on current subjects of popular interest. Sol great was the demand from many! of China for copies of the i parts addresses in pamphlet form that I the Most Rev. August Haouissee, I Vicar Apostolic of Shanghai, de-,i cided to inaugurate the regular I "Catholic Hour." Monsignor Mc-[ Grath's address was the first radio discourse by a Catholic missionary i ever given from Shnglai. Vfllanova Engineering Dean Succumbs at 65 Philadelphia, Feb. II. (E).Dr. Carl Thomas Humphrey, Dean of the School of Engineering at Vil- lanova College, died here Sunday at the age of 65. With the exception of two years, Dr. Humphrey spent his whole career as a member of the Vii- lanova faculty. He was gradu- ated from the Massachusetts In- stitute of Technology in 1905 and joined the ViUanova staff in 1908. In 1920 he was named Dean of the Engineering School. On his twenty-fifth anniversary as a Vii- lanova instructor he received the honorary degree, Doctor of Science from La Salle College. Dr. Humphrey was a non-Cath- olic. Japan Saleslans Hold War Relief Concerts Miyazaki, Japan, Feb. 5. 00.- The Salesians of St. John Bosco entrusted with the evangelization of this Apostolic prefecture are do- ing good work in helping to meet the problem of war casualties. To this end they organized benefit concerts, toward the 0roduction of which the minor seminarians con- tributed their talents. Progress in Salesian activities in the national capital is indicated by their enlarging the chapel of their foundation at Mikawajima and their opening to divine wor- ship of a new church at Nakatsu. W. De Pencier, O. S. M., Editor of The Servite and vice president of the Catholic Press Association, in a sermon delivered at the Church of Our Lady of Sorrows, here, yes- terday. The sermon, which was broad- cast over the radio, was the first of a series to be given by Father De Pencier in Febuary to call atten- tion to Catholic Press Month. "Amid all the evils and holy isms of the world today, with the devil seemingly enthroned as the Crown Prince of Modern Life," Father De Pencier said, "there shines one clear beacon light to guide the traveler on his way to eternal justice and eternal truth. It is the Catholic Church un- changing and unchangeable in its allegiance to Christ and the teach- ings of Christ. Travellers' Aid Send Sympathy To St. Bernard Monks New York, Feb. 8. (K).A letter of sympathy and of praise has been sent by the Travellers' Aid Society to the monks of St. Ber- nard Hospice in the Swiss Alps damaged by an avalanche. Grati- fication that the monks and their famous dogs escaped unharmed is also expressed. The letter, signed by Miss Vir- girda M. Murray, Executive Sec- retary of the Society, says, in part: "To your credit, through these hundreds of years, goes the re- lieving of much suffering and the saving of thousands of lives." Describing the works of the So- ciety, which "helps travellers, too, from every country, old and young, rich and poor alike, as you do, without charge," Miss Murray says: "We salute you and send you our sincere wishes that your fine and glorious work may go on, and, we hope, somewhat less hard for you, as motor roads and telephone become more generally in use." $1,500,000 Given By Hospitals In 1937 for Free Care New York, Feb. 8. 0C).Twenty- three Catholic hospitals of the Archdiocese of New York gave 305,676 days of free care in 1937, representing a contribution to the health of the community of more than $1,500,000 in free service, ac- cording to a preliminary report of the Division of Health of New York Catholic Charities, just made public by the Rt. Ray. Msgr. John F. Brady, Director of the division. Revealing that operating ex- penses exceeded operating income by more than $1,300,000, the report states that the discrepancy was eliminated by donations and bene- factions of various kinds, includ- ing assistance for the New York Catholic Charities. offered by the National Broad- casting Company, an article titled "Eight Years of the Catholic Hour" by Edward J. Heffron, Exe- cutive Secretary of the National Council of Catholic Men, has been published in pamphlet form. The program is produced by the N. C. C.M. Station KTHS is resuming the "Catholic Hour" Sunday. Shortly before, Stations WCHS, Portland, Me., WSAI, Cincinnati, and KGBX, Springfield, Mo., decided to re- sume the program. In Little Rock, Ark., Station KARK has carried the 'Catholic Hour' each Sunday for two years. The program is from 5 to 5:30 o'clock every Sunday afternoon. The Most Rev. Joseph E. Mc- Carthy, Bishop of Portland, writ- ing to Mr. Heffron, said the re- sumption of the "Catholic Hour" in that city is due to "the good offices of our Diocesan Attorney, Mr. Francis W. Sullivan." Bishop McCarthy added that he plans to iii[ ti!tPo;:;h:a iaOunt:YiePs i!it their kin co - sideration of our appeal." The article by Mr. Heffron, re- printed from Catholic Action, of- ficial organ of the National Cath- olic Welfare Conference, makes known that the "Catholic Hour" is the world's biggest year-round religious broadcast. "That this program has grown from a net- work of 22 stations, located in about 17 states and the District of Columbia, to one, at present writ- ing, of 68 stations located in 37 States and the District of Colum- :bin, is due in great measure, of I course, to the growth of the Na- tional Broadcasting Company," the articles states. "Yet in 1930, when the Catholic Hour was inaugur- ated, NBC offered it to 73 sta- tions, the 22 carrying the Catho- lic Hour representing 30 per cent of all available outlets." WALKING INTO TROUBLE Walking into trouble seems to be the chief thing that the city dwel- ler does, for 67 per cent of all urban motor vehicle fatilities are pedestrians. In 42 per cent of these deaths the pedestrian is crossing the street at an intersection, which may or may not place the blame on the automobile driver. In 10 per cent of the cases, however, the pedes- trian is violating an official traffic signal. In another 37 per cent of the deaths the pedestrian is also in the wrong, for he is crossing the street elsewhere than at an intersection cross-walk--plainly "jaywalking." It is hard to convince the aver- age person that he shouldn't exer- cise his God-given right to go any- where at his own sweet will. Legs he believes, are given for that pur- pose. After all, he figures, he is pretty nimble and good at dodg- ing a So out Peter Pedestri n goes in- to the multitudinous hazards of the city streets. And too often he is only a forlorn bundle of hu- man wreckage when the nearest hospital tries to help him. All of which does not in the least minimize the motorist's res- ponsibility for caution at a11 times. Prototype Of "Fr. Brown" Gives Lecture Dublin, Feb. 14. (E).The proto- type for "Father Brown," the priest-detective of G. K. Chester= ton's famous stories, whose real name is the Rt. Rev. Msgr. John O'Connor, has just given a lecture in Dublin in aid of the African Mission of the Holy Ghost Fathers. Monsignor O'Connor, parish priest of Bradford, is a native of Clon- i Byles of Manhattanville College as ;vice president, Miss Dolorita Cur- ray of Mount Saint Vincent Col- lege as treasurer, and Patrick O'Shea of St. John's College as secretary. All the student delegates pre- sent agreed that the Federation should apply without delay for ad- mission to the International Sec- retariate of Federations of Cath- !olic Students, known as Pax Ro- mane, which has its headquarters !in Fribourg, Switzerland. The American Federation is hoping to send delegates to the Congress of Pax Romana to be held next August in Jugoslavia. The aim of the National Federa- tion of Catholic College Students is defined in its constitution as an attempt "to prepare Catholic students to apply and to work for Catholic principles in national, in- ternational and social life, and to contribute to the development of a Catholic public opinion." Archbishop Lauds Catholic Action Work of Guilds i Baltimore, Feb. 14. (EL--The Ca- tholic Evidence Guilds "are do- ing the finest kind of work in the field of Catholic Action" was the statement of the Most Rev. Mi- chael Curley, Archbishop of Balti- more, in addressing the Baltimore and Washington Guilds here. Members of the two organiza- tions gathered in the Cathedral of the Asumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary in observance of the sixth anniversary of the inaugura- tion of street speaking in the arch- diocese. In his sermon, which was ad- dressed also to the members of the Cathedral parish who were in attendance at Sunday Mass, Arch- bishop Curley said he wished "to inform all the people of the arch- diocese of the activities of the and Sciences of Niagara Univer- sity, Niagara, N.

J., of Marquette University, Milwaukee, on "A Plan of Curricular Integration for the Catholic College." Reports of re- gional units will be made. Following reports of the Ac- creditation Commission and the Committee on Graduate Studies, Thm'sday, Dr. Roy J. Deferrari, Dean of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences of the Catholic University of America, Washing- ton, D. C., will present a paper on' "The Catholic College and the Master's Degree." On Friday, reports will be made by the committees on libraries and library holdings, educational prob- lems, nominations, and resolutions. Deficiency In Number of Army, Navy Chaplains New York, Feb. 14 (E)--A survey of the Chaplains' Corps of the armed services of the United States demonstrates that the number of Catholic chaplains in the United States Navy is inadequate and that the number of Catholic chaplains in the Army also is below strength. These facts are brought out by the Rt. Ray. Msgr. George J. Waring, Vicar General of the Ordinariate for the Army and Navy. There are at present 17 Catholic chaplains commissioned in the United States Navy and 31 in the Army. In addition, there are 20 Catholic chaplains serving vet- erans' hospitals.
