The anti-foreign feeling was so ~ense at Foochow, Father O'Donnell said, that he was forced to spend 10 days in disguise while awaiting the arrival of his associates from interior points, following the occupation and looting of the city by Cantonese troops.

Montgomery, a teacher in the Hangchow Christian College, who elected to remain, is the only missionary remaining in Hang- chow ,the capital of Chekiang, it is said. Petsers of an unquMifiedly anti- Christian character have made their appearance in many places. The radical element has made a show of its power by forcing the clos- 'rag down of an English and an Amer- ican newspaper because of the stand taken by these periodicals against the activities of radical leaders.

His vocation revived, he' later be- came a monk at Bec in Normandy. As Archbishop of Canterbury, to which see he had been appointed by William Rufus, he was in bitter con- flict with the king because of his defense of the Pope. Worldly pre- lates called him "traitor," but the barons eventually sided with him. He is famed for his devotion to the Bless- ed Virgin. He died in 1109. Friday, April 22. St. Soter, Pope and Martyr, became the head of the Church in 173. He was liberal in charity. He vigorously opposed the Montanus heresy and ruled the Church until 177. Saturday, April 23.--St. George, Martyr, was born in Cappadocia of Christian parents at the end of the third century. Although as a soldier he had won the favor of Diocletian, he rebuked the emperor when he be- gan his persecution of Christians. He became a type of successful combat of evil, the slayer of the dragon. The devotion ~o St. George is one of the most ancient and widespread in the Church.

The fate of 193 priests is a matter of grave concern with the advance of the Cantonese. Msgr. De GuebNant, head of the foreign missions here, said that 390 priests in southwest China seemingly are safe. None have been killed, he said, but they have been compelled to abandon their churches and take ~fuge among their Christian Chinese friends. Msgr.

The great growth of this city in the vi- cinity of Mills College l~as prompted the Most Reverend Edward J. Hanna, Archbishop of San Francisco, to es- tablish the new parish of St. Cyril, for the convenience of Catholic resi- dents in that section. The Rev. Fran- cis F. McCarthy has been appointed pastor. For the past two months the con- gregation has been attending Mass in the Capitol theater, where one Mass was celebrated every Sunday. With the advent of good weather Father McCarthy has provided a tent sheltering an al.tar, and pews suffi. cient to seat 300. A wood floor has been laid within the tent. Four Masses will be celebrated each Sun- League of Writers, with city units day. It is expected that by Septem- ber a permanent church and school will have been erected. MOVEMENT ~O KEEP GOOD FRIDAY VIGIL GAINS NEW SUPPORT San Francisco, Calif., April 6.--At the latest "Good Friday Observance" meeting in the Y. M. I. building, Most Rev. Archbishop Hanna, the speaker of the evening, declared that nothing the Church has done in this country has had such far-reaching results as the movement for the annual com- memoration of the Three Hours of Divine Agony. Originating in San Francisco, the movement has spread throughout the country and is still gaining strength, he said. He com- mended the patience and persever- ence of the men and women sponsor- ing it in this city for refraining from using the great power at their com- mand when rebuffed or refused co- operation. PRIEST, ONCE LORD HALIFAX'S CHAPLAIN, DEAD AT AGE OF 74 London, April 4. A priest who as an Anglican clergyman acted as chap- lain to Lord Halifax, lay leader of the "Anglo-Catholics," and who was or- dained at the age of 47, died here this week aged 74. Father John Percival Gelding-Bird was a graduate of Trinity College, Cambridge. After taking Anglican orders he worked in London and Ox- ford before becoming chaplain to Lord Halifax. He was received into the Church in 1900, and a year later was ordain- ed priest. For three years he tried his vocation with the Benedictines, but ha ultimately returned to (~ioce- san work. Calles propaganda plot, Wilbur Bates, student of Mexican affairs, asserts in a letter to the New York Herald- Tribune here, printed by that paper. Mr. Bates further charges that by the lavish use of money Calles has nearly turned American opinion against the idea of pro~ecting Ameri- cans in a foreign country. The writer begins by declaring that the announced Mexica~ boycott against American goods is only a "Calles propaganda trick" played through an organization called the Union of Citizens of Central and South America and the Antilles, but actually made up of only "six Com- munists" issuing statements against ,the United States. The purpose of announcing the boycott, he adds, was merely to scare American business men so that they would join their voices with those of others now pro- testing, "under Calles' propaganda inspirations," against the American policy toward Mexico. The whole scheme, says the writer, was a "fake," deliberately planned "by a coterie of 'reds' working in connivance with his (Calles') govern- ment in Mexico City." Discussing other moves by these Calles propa- gandists. BISHOP VON KEPPLER MEDALS TO ASSIST SCHILLER HOUSE PLAN By Rev. Dr. Wm. Baron yon Capitaine (Cologne Correspondent, N. C. W. C. News Service) Cologne, April 4. In order ~o rame money with which o build ,the Catholic Schiller-House at Mar- bach, Wuerttemberg, the birthplace of the poet, the committee has ar- ranged for the coinage and sale of a medal honoring Bishop yon Keppler. The Bishop yon Keppler memorial medal cast in silver sells for 20 marks while a gold replica costs 100 marks. The returns from the sales are ex- pected to be sufficient to meet all expenses of the building project. The Schiller House is planned to offer accommodations and convem- ences to the many students, profes- sors and travelers who visit Mar- bach and to establish a place where Catholics and Protestants can meet in confessional peace and where Ca- tholic principles and doctrines may be better understood by non-Catho- lics. The project will also provide a chapel where Catholic visitors and residents may hear Mass. WINNER OF ORATORY CONTEST SIGHTLESS Santa Clara, Calif., April 4.---John A.
