Senator, Gallinger evidently believes in the universal application of "sel.f- debermination, for he wishes to in- clude Ireland within its scope. He introduced a resolution in Congress to that effect, and although the resolu- tion will no doubt be pigeonholed, its introduction confirms g conviction that is becoming more widespread in this country, that its application is an in- dispensable and fundamental conditio of a lasting peace. The Rt. Rev. Wm. T. Russell, D.D., gives promise to be as active as Bishop of Charleston, as he was when Mgr. Russell in Washington and pastor of St. Patrick's Church of that city. His most recent public service was to re- cord his protest against being asked to aid in a campaign for the" benefit of the Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C.

N. A. Gallagher, late i Iishop of the Diocese of Galveston, 'vho died there recently. He took his text from the twelfth verse of the nineteenth Psahn: "Teach us to nmn. , :mr days that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom." Rabbi Cohen said: "Participating in every civic activ- ity, bending the influence of his ex- alted position in furtherance of thai which was right and just in our every- day existence, the Bishop will tong be 'emembered as an exemplification of probity of the highest type. A simple, modest, kindly gentleman, a sebolar uacher and normal enthusiast, it was" a privilege to hare his human inter- ,st in all things. Notwithstanding' his quiet carriage, he wouhl rise to righte- ous wrath at an injustice, mlvould score sham and hpyocrisy in no u- certain terms. He was pmicularly severe upon those who, born and reared in the faith of which he was so shining a light, tactily repudiated their birthright by making overtures for social preferment to an alien faith. Talking to me of this defection he once averred that the people who sacrifice their spiritual belief on the altar of worldly fashion and who make light of their heritage for mundane things bring nothing to themselves but ridi- cule, for they are thoroughly undcr- tood by the very people whose good 'ill they seek even at the loss of their self-respect. "We Jews owe Bishop Gallagher's 'memory a debt of gratitude. I recall that, in the interests of tilth and jus- ice, he was one of the first of the city in each instance to sign a protest to the French Government upon the unfortunate Dreyfus affair; to the Russian Government on the Kishineff massacre, and again to the Russian Government on the preposterous Beil- i iss blood accusation; and he voluntar- ily subscribed to whatever funds were 'cellected for the relief of the victims of Russian persecution as well as to the Jewish war sufferers' fund.

The author's tribute to France, and the spirit of the men and women is feelingly expressed on more than one page. Through it all the priestly characteristic of effacing self and giving all honor and glory to the souls that have come under his charge is evident, when in many in- stances the example he has set has inspired the men to noble deeds. No one who has known how a chap- lain can mean all thing to all men can deny John Ayscough the meed of praise which is his due, and which he would be loathe to accept. There is something so human about him', despite his marked spirituality, that the secret of his popularity may be found in that quality which makes him so easy of approach. Of his mother he speaks in terms of a touching affection. It would be a de- secration to quote from the last chap- ter of "French Windows" where he tells of a sorrow that came upon him before the close of the book. for he states in the opening lines of it "I trust no critics will turn to this parti- cular page." It was never meant for them nor for a reviewer. The man- ner in which the reader is taken in- to his confidence is a compliment that must not be violated. There are a AIRPLANE MAIL SERVICE. Airplane mail service between New York and Washington will be in daily operation beginning April 15, the Postoffice Department has announced. Eight machines wilt be furnished by the War Department. By arranging between Postmaster General Burleson and Secretary Baker thc aerial postal service will be conducted for one year as part of the aviation training system of the armY. The machines will be piloted by army fliers. On each trip 300 pounds of first- class mail will be carried. It will oc- cupy a space of not more than 25 cubic feet. Of the eight airplanes to be provided by the War Department six will be placed in operation and two held in reserve. One trip each way will be made daily except Sunday, on a fixed schedule. The flying time between New Yorl and Washington is estimated at less than three hodrs, including a stop-over to deliver mail at Philadelphia. Rev. Theodore A. Metcalf, of the Archdiocese of Boston, who has been absent on leave for some years, wilI in May observe the golden jubilee of his ordination. Father Metcalf is one of the many native Bostonians con- veled to the Faith and was formerly pastor of the Gate of Heaven Church, South Boston. He says that he was baptized in the chapel of Holy Cross College, Worcester, Mass. when a boy by Bishop Fitzpatrick. Contracts have been signed for the roofing work on the new cathedral, Newark, N. 5.

This structure is port- able and, being delivered in sections, will not require much time for erec- tion. It is expected to bc ready for service by the Sunday following East- er. It is located so as to accommodate the eastern section of camp, at D4th street and North avenue. Lieut. Fath- er Hughes of the 335th F. A. will use this building for the celebration of Mass on Sunday and promises to in- terest himself much in the success of the Knights of Columbus war work in that area. Our junior secretary, Fran- cis M. Hunt, will have direct charge of the new, Everybody Welcome Hall, while the ,q'eneral secretary, L. I0. Hirner, will supervise both places. The energetic local Council No. 812, Knights of Columbus, will arrange for the dedication and opening of the building. Lieut: Father Retzek is now sta- tioned at the Base Hospital to admin- ister to the needs of the Catholic boys sent there. The big event of the week was the seventeenth weekly concert, by the 345th Infantry band, assisted by Prof. J. J. Keller of the Keller Conservatory of Music. The boys enjoyed the mar- velous violin playing of Miss Fodrea and insisted on an encore. Miss Helen Burke was up to her usual standard in the delivery of her readings. Miss Vir- ginia Rogoski made quite a hit with her singing of "A Perfect Day," and at her request, the audience assisted her with the chorus when she respond- ed to the second call. The program was completed by a few good com- munity songs led by ProP. Keller. Sergeant Ludwig Seitz' men rendered the following numbers: First Part. 1. March ................. R. B.

A party of nurses from Fort Roots , participated in the dance, as well as a good number from the Base Hospital. The Masses Sunday were well at-i tended, especially the 6:30 one. More than 500 sohtiers received Holy Com- munion. The Post Chaplain read Mass at Fort Roots and will go there again the Sunday following Easter. Holy Thursday and Good Friday will be ob- served as far as conditions of camp life permit. There will be a field MiI- itary Mass at 10:30 Easter morning. Lieut. Father James T. Torsney of the 345th InfantT will celebrate and preach. The Joan of Arc Service Club was not mentioned last week, although it held one of its most successful meet- ings. The day was beautiful and nine cars loaded with members, besides some who came on the train, formed a delightful crowd. The soldiers re- sponded nicely to the kindness of the women and besides having much mending done for them, enjoyed the acquaintance of the women. The mem- bership is growing and the finished in- terior of our hall and the stage speak for the patriotic interest the good la- dies of the Joan of Arc Club have in the men of the army. We are very much pleased with the donation, of a water cooler, made by Mrs. William Letzig. Let the hot days come on. When the great German "drive" on the west front was advertised in ad- vance, we felt that no "drive" was to be attempted there. Great move- ments are not advertised beforehand in this war. It is not likely that the western front will be the theatre of any great battle this spring. Ger- many is busy in securing her hold upon Russia and the allies are wait- ing upon America. What turn the war may take during the summer will depend largely upon the rapidity with which we can send our soldiers across the Atlantic.. There is no longer any doubt that the allies are waiting for us to win the war. Our work is cut out for us. The Eu (France) "Reveil" of recent date quotes an official announcement awarding the bronze Mcdaille de Epi- demics to Miss Elizabeth McNamara in religion Sister St. Emile, nurse of the complementary or auxiliary hos- pital No. 25. Sister St. Emile, who is a member of the Ben Secours com- munity at Paris, belonged to Ballyani- han, County Cork. Since the begin- ning of the war she has occupied the position of nurse in the Hospital No. 25 at Eu, the military chiefs having especially entrusted to her the care of contagious cases. News has been received of the death of the Very Rev. Alfred Louwyck, C, M. Vicar-General of the Vincentian Fathers at the mother-house of the order in Paris. Father Louwyck was elected to act as Vicar-General of the order upon the death of the late en- cumbent of the office, the Very Rev. Anthony Fiat, C. M., who requested that Father Louwyck be .tamed to fill the vacancy until the General Assem- bly should be resumed at the call of the acting superior-general.
