It was indeed an unforgettable sight as His Eminence Rodrigue Cardinal Villeneuve, Papal Dele- gate, placed the Blessed Sacra- ment on the altar at Battlefields Park. Rising about 400 feet above the vast congregation, the great seven-foot special monstrance on the altar caught the rays of the setting sun, and was visible to the outermost ranks of the huge open- air congregation. Tears of happiness coursed down the Cardinal's cheeks as he turned to that sea of faces. His voice trembled with emotion as he said: "A thousand times may God be This dear city of Cham- )lain and Laval, what a spectacle it not given today, having be- come a temple in its streets and homes! In the name of the Pope, in the name of Christ Himself, I thank you for your presence, for your piety." Archbishop Olcognani's Message The Cardinal again spoke after Benediction, reading a message from His Excellency the Most Rev. Amleto Giovanni Cicognani, Apos- tolic Delegate to the United States, who assured the Papal Legate of the unity of all the Catholics and their spiritual participation in the Congress: His Eminence then thanked all who had aided' in the success of the Congress, and added: "And I thank all our separated brethren for their sympathy and collaboration. May God be mind- ful of it." Flying Priest To Install New Radio Sets in Arctic Washington. (E}.mWith the in- stallation of seven new wireless sets, bringing up to 10 the .total number in use, Catholic Mission- aries this summer will have estab- lished complete radio connection between James Bay and Hudson Bay, Canada, for the first time, the Rev. Paul Schulte, O. M. I., the "Flying Priest," made known just before his departure Wednesday for the North to undertake this work. Father Schulte will install the radio sets for the Catholic Mis- sionaries and perform another work which last year he became the first ever to perform, and for which he was elected to the Ex- florers' Club. This is the radio )iloting of the ice-breaker "St. ['herese." Flying an airplane and communicating with the ice- breaker by radio, Father Schulte guides the boat through the ice floes in the dangerous Arctic re- gion. The ice-breaker carries the supplies which are to last the Far North Mission stations for an en- tire year. It also deposits caches of gasoline for use by the mission airplanes. Not only is the rad'io piloting of the ice-breaker a great aid to safety and an economy of time, but, Father Schulte revealed, it enables the Missionaries to get a lower insurance rate on their ice- breaker. Father Schulte went from this city to New York, and then on to Detroit. He plans to leave De- troit tomorrow and go to Toronto and Montreal. At Montreal he will confer with the captain of the "St. Therese." Then the ice- breaker will go around Labrador to Churchill, where Father Schulte will meet it again August 1. In the interim, Father Schulte will go from Montreal to James Bay, where he will begin the work of installing the radio sets. From Churchill, early in August, will be- gin the work of radio piloting the ice-breaker. The "Flying Priest expects to return to the United States about the end of Septem- ber. Father Schulte's companion and auxiliary pilot will be Friedel Lang, youngest son of the late An- ton Lang, world-famous "Chris- tus" of the Oberammergau Pas- sion Play. Friedel, who is 19 years old, already is a qualified pilot. 'ather Schulte plans to acquaint 'aim with flying conditions in the a.rctic during this sumemr's work. Fhe yourtg flier will remain in ?anada as a mission pilot when 7ather Schulte returns to the :/nited States.

Seminarians Have Great Success In Their Work De Valls Bluff.--The course of pic- torial lectures given, at De Valls Bluff by Messrs. Marchiano and McGonigle of St. John's Seminary was attended by more than 150 persons, the majority who we're non-Catholics. The same course of lectures was given at Cotton Plant with a continued increase in attendance.

Following this lecture the Passion Play of Oberammergua : 1930 was explained by Albert Marchiano. We wish to extend, through these columns, our appreciation to the Southern Lumber Com- pany of Cotton Plant for their kindness in loaning sufficient lum- ber for seats to accommodate the large attendance on Friday eve- ning. The work of the seminarians in this territory, it is hoped, will bear much fruit. During their stay with Father Evans they lec- tured to more than 500 souls in- cluding men, women and children. They covered most of his terri- tory, were of great assistance and' derived much experience in mis- sion work. The monthly meeting of the Na- tional Council of Catholic Women was held at the rectory last Wed- nesday evening. Following the business meeting Father Evans spoke on the "Object of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass." At the next meeting which will be held on the last Wednesday of July a film on the Mass will be shown and explained.

The act prowdes that Until the United States shall have a con- sular officer resident in the State of Vatican City, a copy of any document of record or on file in a public office .of said State of Vatican City, certified by the law- ful" custodian of such document, may be authenticated, as provid- ed in Section 695 of the Judictal l Code by a consular officer of the United States resident in the City of Rome, Kingdom of Italy, and: such document or record shall, when so certified and authenti- cated, be admissable in evidence in any court of the United States." i Christian Workers Report Progress Paris.

A. Roth PAGE FIVE Motor Chapel Touring Diocese Of Nottingham London. ().The Catholic Mis- sionary Society's motor-chapel has started a three-months' tour of the Nottingham diocese. The Rev. Dr. Bernard Grimley, former editor of The Catholic Times, speaking at a "send off" to the missioners, said he would like to take out a "Catholic circus or a Catholic fair" that could stay threeweeks at aplace, instead of .......... one ,and saturate the minds of people with Catholic doctrine. He suggested that the mission- ers might have a van with a stage on which Catholic dramatic so- cieties might perform mystery plays. Catholic films might also be shown, he said, and Catholic books sold. Dr. Grimley said that the Not- tingham diocese is one of the three which have benefitted least by the Irish exodus into England. The two others are Northampton and' Plymouth. 10,000 In Intm'-Parlsh F.m.hatlc Procession Brooklyn. 0D.wAn extraordi- nary Catholic event was concluded here with a Eucharistic proces- sion and Solemn Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament at which the Most Rev.
