Has Practical Platform Briefly epitomized Madam Van der Kallen's legislative platform calls for; 1. A woman's department entirely conducted by women in the Ministry of Labor. 2. A thorough inquiry by the State into the physical, moral and spiritual conditions of the shop and factory girls. 3. A complete and up-to-date adap- tation as well as faithful execution bf the labor laws. 4. A perfecting of the Labor Inca- pacity Law and of the cesus methods, to make it possible to trace the harm- ful influence of factory work upon the young girl's life and upon her subsequent child-bearing possibilities as a mother. 5. Women's recognition and this is of international signifcation by the League of Nations at Geneva. In May, 1919. a captain in the French army, M. Hamon, had ~ cere- bral hemorrhage which resulted in paralysis of one side and the loss of speech. His pastor, Rev. Fr. Crepel of St. Gohard's Church in the city of S~. Nazaire-sur-Loire, persuaded him to receive the Sacraments and make a novena to Pope Plus X. The good priest also gave him a relic. O.n the second day of the novena he began to obtain relief and on the concluding day he was cured.
