(E)Re-empha- sizing an appeal by His Eminence William Cardinal O'Connell, Arch- bishop of Boston, that the inde- cency abroad in America today be vigorously combatted, the Rt. Rev. Msgr. Francis F.

Monsignor Phelan, who is State Chaplain of the K. of C., said a "flood of indecency" is evident in stage performances, in pictures and on news stands, and that re- cently "public decency was out- raged" in a magazine subject "which was a brazen endeavor to cater to depraved appetites."

"In January of 1888," he said, "through the kind assistance of :willing helpers, the Sisters were able to open their first parochial school, and in June His Excel= lency, the Most Reverend Bishop Fitzgerald, blessed their humble lame and named it "Convent o Our Lady of the Rock," in mem- m-y of the famous shrine of that name in Switzerland from whence most of the Sisters had come. "In compliance with the desire of their beloved Bishop," Monsig- nor said, "this community of :Benedictine Sisters was affiliated with the Congregation of Bene- dictines of Mount Olivet at Rome in the year 1893, and from that time on they were Olivetan Bene- dictine Sisters. In honor of the Blessed Mother they wear a habit of white. "As their members increased- and the influence of their work extended, their mother house was removed to Jonesboro, where they now have a well established and complete group of buildings, which will care for their ndeds or many years to come.
