Massiani, (Par:s Correspondent, N. C. W. C. News Service.) Paris, March 2.---The funeral of a religious, Mother Marie Aimee, for- mer Superior General of the Congre- gation of the Divine Providence, was the occasion for touching manifesta- tions of public mourning. The deceased, whose name in the world was Constance Schaeffer, had been Superior General from 1905 to 1919. Ill health and the loss of her sight had caused her resignation 11 years ago, but she remained in the Motherhouse of the Congregation at Ribeauville. It was there that she died and was interred. It was largely due to her direction that her Congregation developed so extensively. Today it directs all the Catholic schools for girls in Alsace. During the war Mother Marie Ai- nee was expelled from the zone of operations by the German military authorities. After the Armistice, the French government conferred the Cross of the Legion of Honor upon her. I Hundreds of priests and religious MARQUETTE U.
