A presidential car, an automobile car, an escort ca~ for a military guard, a staff car for aides of the President, and a ctining and kitchen car combin- ed make up the train. Despite revo- lutionary activity and the desperate condition of the Mexican treasury, it is understoo] the train is to be deliv- ered in Mexico soon. Mother Mary Joseph, Returning From War-Torn Country, Re- porto On Conditions There Leave Work Regretfully (By N. C. W. C. News Service) New York, April 29 .---Mother Mary Joseph, the Superioress-Gener- al of the Maryknoll Sisters, who has recently returned from a visitation of the houses of the Congregation in the Orient, reports that the attitude of Catholic Sisters in China is .one of cahn and fearlessness Wherever Sisters have been forced to leave their missions, it has been with the utmost regret and with con- cern only for the safety of the charges entrusted to them says Mother Mary Joseph. Many of the houses of the Sisters of Charity in the Yangtze-kiang re- gion have been accupied by Chinese soldiers, she added, and the Sisters Kentucky, who have been helping the Irish Columban Fathers at Hanyang, /are in safety at Kuling. The Sisters of Providence from St. Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana, who are doing splendid work for Chinese girls in their school at Kaifeng in Hmaan province, said Mother Mary Joseph, extended a warm invitation to her. On account of the limited time at her disposal and the condi- tions in China, she was not able to visit them. The American Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart have been un- able to reach their mission They are still at Shanghai, studying the language, These Sisters left New York for China last September. The arrangement made by Mother Mary Joseph with Bishop-elect James E. Walsh, Vicar Apostolic of the Maryknoll Kongmoon Missions, was that the Maryknoll Sisters are to re- main in the interior, wherever they are needed for the care of children, of the sick, or of destitute old peo- ple. In cases where they are not thus needed and where their presence or to maintain political, power. There are many and also an increasing number, 'without regard to party affiliations," who see fn his election of the Presidency the occasion now presented to carry to its complete ac- ceptance the poht~cal equality and religious tolerance guaranteed by the Constitution." Mr, Belmont quotes copiously from many authorities on religious' tolerance, and discusses particularly "Political Aspect~ of Religious Wars," recounting the suffering that has come when religious intolerance and political consideratons have been mingled. by the Sisters of St, JosLph, was called a "splendid institution" and the work of the Sisters pralscd in an address delivered to th~ school by United States Senator Arthur Rcbin- SOn. The whol6 student body of 210 at- tended. Senator Robinson urged the students to take full advantage of the great oportunities for education offered in America opting for the common liturgy, phrases borrowed from old and dead languages, instead of from th~idiom of the nation dominant at any one time over any one territory," writes the minister. "It is an incontestably magnifi- cent fact that the Latin Mass is a single tie which binds Greenland with ~he Equator, the white race to all others; the Romans to the Germans; in fact, all Catholics of the universe to one another. "We Protestants are strangers in the ceremonies of our religion in a foreign country, if we do not knbw the language of that country. For this reason I dare to affirm that the Latin should never have been abol- ished in our services. It is also a great pity that the Latin la'ngnage was eliminated from Protestant theo- logical literature." Mr. Stumpf also praises the beauty " of Latin religious hymns, which re-: present a kind of nee-classic poetry of great perfection. He denies that the Latin liturgy weakens nationaI and patriotic sentiment, citing as an example the Polish people wise have
