The Novitiate and College for Itomc and Foreign Missions in this country are. at Ona- mia, Minn., and it is of this comniun- ity that Fatimr Van Dinter is Prior. The Crosier Order was founded by Theodore de Celles, who became a Canon after following Emperor Fred- crick Barbarossa on the Crusade. The vows of the first Canons were pronounced in 1211. Pope Innocent III verbally approved the Order in 1215, and the written Papal approba- tion was confirmed in 1248. The Or- der flourished, members of it preach- ing to the Albigenses with St. Dom- inic and many houses being founded. In the period of raonastic suppressions throffghout Europe, it suffered great- ly, but since has had a vigorous re- birth. The life of the Crosiers is both contemplative and active. They give missions and retreats and assist the secular clergy when asked. STRASBOURG :BISHOP BANS PAPER CAUSING STRIFE IN DIOCESE (By hi'. C. W. C. News Service.) Paris, June 27.--Msgr. Ruch, Bishop of Strasbourg, has addressed to the faithful of his diocese a letter nvtifying them that the reading of the paper, Zukunft, is forbidden in virtue of the :/ :~eral law of ,the Church. from Toccoa, in Stephens County, Ga. that fourteen warrants had been issued for alleged members of the masked band who have terrorized the section. Their names are withheld, pending their arrest. The warrants were issued as a result of investiga- tions conducted hy private citizens. George Goods, who has been retain- ed by one of the flogged women to aid the prosecution, has declared that there was not the slightest doubt the whipI)ings were the work of the klan. The editorial devotes considerable attention to Clifford Walker, who retired as Governor last Saturday when Dr. L. G. Hardman was inau- gurated is assailed bitterly for his failure to take action on the reputed Klan outrages in and near Toccoa, which included whipping of at least two women and the driving insane of a man who had befriended one of them. Mr. Walker is charged with being the ready tool of the Grand Dragon of the State, recreant in his duty to Georgia in order to protect an organ- ization with which he is said to have worked hand-in-glove during his ad- ministration. The editorial charges that officials of the sections involved have made no apparent effert to put an end to the outrages and calls for resignations of judge, sheriff and any other officials involved. Klan Dragon Scored Explanation of the outrages by iNathan , Bedford Forrest, Grand ~Dragon of the Klan, is declared "naive." Even in his denial of re- sponsibility, says the Advocate, he ad- mits responsibility.

FRENCH ASSOCIATION MISSIONARIES RECOVER PAINTINGS THOUGHT STOLEN AT PIER (By N. C. W. C. News Service.) San Francisco, June 24.--The col- lection of valuable paintings and' t rare, costly Chinese souvenirs which i were thought to have been stolen i from two distinguished missionaries I who recently returned from the Ori- ent, have been found. The missionaries were Mother Clare, daughter of Count Francesco Del Blanco of Italy, and Mother Dora, daughter of the late General Charles Smart, U. S. A. Medical Corps. The missing articles were received by the potiee today from Miss Ruth :W. Crampton, Carmel novelist, wko explained by letter that the package had become mixed with her luggage at the pier when the ship on which they arrived docked at San Francis- co. Zukunft is the organ of the Heim- atbund, a party which was founded for the purpose of demanding the au- tonomy of Alsace-Lorraine. This journal advocates the pernmnent al- liance of Catholics and anti-Catho- lics, of conservatives and Socialists, provided they are adversaries of the French administration. The Bishop of Strasbourg had already, from the point of view of doctrine, criticized this advice, as given to Catholics, to put political prejudices above reli- gious interests. In the meantime, a great suit brought out that the funds for the publication of the journal were of foreign origin and that several of the collaborators were of questionable morals• A rector of a Strasbourg suburb, having given his cooperation to Zukunft, had constant dealings with them and was admonished on this subject. As he was moreover, often seen in their company at the theater, in spite of ecclesiastical re- gulations, the Bishop sent him as rec- tor to a remote parish, after having prescribed for him a fifteen-day re- treat with the Redemptionists. These decisions brought down upon Msgr. Ruch violent attacks by the Zukunft. To these the Bishop wished to oppose only smiling charity. But the laws of the Church, he said, made it his strict duty to counteract the work of papers which endeavored to undermine the authority of the bishop, to discredit him personally, and to injure Christian morals as well as Catholic discipline. PLAYS GIVEN TO AID HOUSE FOR AMERICAN STUDENTS IN PARIS fB~:N'. C. W• C. News Servlce.I Paris, June 27.---Two plays have ~ust been given here bs a benefit for a house which is to be established for lodging American students dur- ins their sojorun in Paris. The plays were produeed under the auspices of a committee of ladies of the aristocracy, the Duchesse de Vendome acting as patroness and Ambassador Claudel as honorary president. Other niembers of the committee were the Marquise de Chambron, the Vieomtesse de Dam- pierre, Mme. de Nolhac, the Corn- tesse de Sayve. For the accommodation of Ameri- can Catholic students who come to Paris to attend courses at the Sor- bonne, the C0nsercatorie and the Beaux Arts, there is already in ex- istence the St. Regis'~Club, which was founded in November, 1925, and which offers a Catholic atmosphere. that the ]dan "supplied a refuge by FOR CHURCH REPAIRS its regalia and furnished a reason FINISHES PROGRAM by its reputation'" for the perpetra- tors of these outrages and "threw Pnv;~ .l,n~ 9~ ho ~nno " ...... , .......

" South Carolina's now famous "blue law" test case, the result of Governor Richard's Sunday crusade, will not reach the State Supreme Court until July 5. The test case specifically involves the application of the Palmetto State's ancient Sabbath observance laws to the sale on Sunday of gaso- line and motor oil. It was originally docketed for June, but was postponed until early in July. Case In Supreme Court The appeal to the State's highest tribunal is taken from the order of Circuit Judge William E. Grimball, ed the Charleston Oil Company a temporary restraining order, and from this appeal was taken to the Su- preme Court. As the date for the hearing draws until the Commission on Reparations should have remitted the entire sum of indemnities. The Cooperative So- ciety, therefore, launched a loan which would permit the immediate undertaking of the work. This loan will be gradually paid off as the in- demnities, ordained by the treaty of peace, are liquidated. JAPANESE HEIRESS BECOMES A NUN (By N. C. W. C. News Service.) New York, July 3.---Father Leo- pold H. Tilbesar, of Quincy, Illinois, a Maryknoll missioner who is studying the language at Tokyo, writes o£ the stir created in wealthy Japanese cir- cles by the recent entry into a Trap- pistine Convent of Sue-ko Kawada, a daughter of Baron Ryukichi Waw- ada. The grandfather of the present Baron Kawada was chiefly instru- mental in establishing the house of Iwasaki, which is wealthier than any other in modern Japan. Miss Kawada was graduated from the Peeresses' School and then entered the Catholic School at Yotsuya, a sister institution to the Sacred Heart School at Sauko-cho, known as "Seishiu Josh[ Gakuin."
