Nuns in London Co00vents Study Air I The ground was broken on July' l, the feast of the Most Precious Blood. Bassham and Wheeler are the architects and the Manhattan Construction Company the con- tractors. The church building com- mittee is composed of Joe A. Schnitzer, Joe Cook and Louis Hartmeier. The following are church ward- es of St. Boniface parish: Joe A. Schnitzer, Louis Bogner, John Borengasser, Will Gisler, Vincent Gramlich and Joe Hartmeier. The new structure's dimensions are 43 feet across the nave, 63 feet across the transept and 148 feet long. The plan is of the transept type with a seating capacity of 588 and a Sisters' chapel to the left of the i sanctuary seating 25 or 30 and the sacristy to the right with a pas- sage back of the altar making it possible to pass from one side of the church to the other without passing through the sanctuary. The entrance is by three door- ways to a spacious well lighted and ventilated vestibule having a baptismal font to the left and a stairs to the right leading to the choir loft. The entrance from the vestibule to the Nave is by three doorways, one at each asile. The confessionals, opening from the nave, are located between these doorways, and are so designed as to provide thorough mechanical ventilation at all times. The choir loft is located over the entrance vestibule, and is of ample size for the organ and com- fortable seating of a large choir. The plans provide for a full basement having a very large gen- eral purpose room, toilets, heating and other rooms. The building is so planned and designed as to eliminate the usual large, dangerous and expensive towers at the front yet so archi- tecturally treated as to produce a well balanced and front effect. A belfry of ample size at the rear of the building over the passage way back of the altar. This ar- rangement not only provides easy installation of the bells, easy access to the bells, but is economical con- struction for the bells compared to a tower belfry at the front as is usual. The building is of Gothic design, faced with a very light gray brick and almost white stone trim. Win- nautics near Lockport, an- other CYO institution.

Catholic citizens are obliged to obey the laws of their country, their state and their com- munity. Those invested with authority are likewise obliged to perform their duties faithfully. The natural law demands that they promote the general welfare, perform the special duties of their office with wisdom and justice and without il- legal enrichrRent and corruption. "Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's and to God the things that are God's." The Catholic Church takes no part in politics until some factor arises that infringes upon God's Law and is harmful to It. Then as the custodian of Faith iind Morals She uses Her strength for their complete preservation. Individual Catholics, however, always have an obliga- tion to a Democratic Government, for in such a form of gov- erning Christian duties increase. .He must contribute actively to the welfare of the country by participating in its rule. He does this chiefly by means of his privilege to vote. He must seek to inform himself as to the nature of laws, and the fit- ffess of candidates for public office. He must vote con- scientiously and advocate only such measures and reforms as 'arc for the common good. To neglect this duty is sinful. As has been the custom in the past, The Guardian is publishing advertisements of candidates for elective offices in the August Primary. The policy of The Guardian is the same: as that of the Church'wc are not in politics. In no way does The Guardlan commit itself to any one of these candidates. This office accepts clean and constructive advertisements of all candidates. Since, as said above, it is a matter of conscience we urge our readers to study the men and the issues involved and to vote in accordance with their convictions.
