Sixty-one Chinese students, com- ing from the large cities of France and Belgium, assembled at "La Sapi- niese" for a three-day closed retreat. The preadhers were a missionary priest from China, Father Lebbe, who is in ]urope on leave, ands Chinese priest, Father Wang.

C News Service) London, July 9.Cardinal Bourne recently visited the Birmingham Archdiocese, for the purpose of open- ing a new church dedicated to the English Martyrs m Birmingham City.! lhe nmuguratmn took place on the estival of the l,nglish Martyrs, Bless-' ed Sebastian Newdigate and Blessed Humphrey Middlemore, and it was noteworthy that among those taking part in the ceremony were two di- rect descendants of the illustrious Martyr, Blessed Sebastian Newdigate, who suffered under Henry VIII for his devotion to the Unity of the Clmrch. Return to the Church It is a curious thing, that after having given a martyr to the Catho- OKS of INTEREST Summer days bring to the average reader a desire for tbe lightest tic- tion. "It is too hot to think," they say as tbcy look over the season's production. "Faint Perfume" has the right sounding title and Z G., they translate hurriedly as Zane Grey, rather than Zona Gale, and they de- part content with a choice that is free from a ponderous sound. On the recommcmtation of a select- ive reader, Cerhadli's "Futility" was taken by one, who has not a large op- portunity of having her novels se- lected. "I4's absolutely different," the virile reader said: "from anything Russian you have ever read. I have thought for a long time that the Rus- sians must have a playfulness of na- ture we knew nothing about, they must have a sense of humor that would not be too blunted to give them a toleration toward life, and Ger- hardi's "Futility" has made me know and understand the Russian charac- ter, as I never have before. "That was high praise for a book." A reading of it brought the knowl- edge that the book was well named. Why should a man submit; without protest, to the caring of immmerable worthless inlaws. They were family complications that came in the wake 0f his own folly , and the mere fact that they had followed in the wake was the reason, no doubt, of his sub- mission. It was futile to protest, ac- cording to his reasoning. Unhealthy the trend has been in modern fiction, and men are feeling so its alarm they are voicing their protest. Mr. George Ochs-Oakes at the Federation of Women's Clubs in New York, Mr. Briggs, State Libra- rian of Iowa, and the distress tha$ was voiced by a local man whose wife belonged to a club, which invested in the new fiction, show the desire on the part of the men to rid literature of an evil that is insidious and per- nicious. And well it is they are corn- that the Catholic body is alive to the great misunderstand- need of giving every assistance to Sister Fides, "a great gulf those of their people who unhappily cannot be bridged.

News Serivce) I;ondon, June 23Unfair and un- equal treatment of Catholics in the matter of the schools and education, was the subject introduced to the Minister of Education a Whitehall, by a Catholic delegation led by the Earl of Denbig.h.

Yet, owing to the refusal of the Ministry, these schools are deprived of the govern- merit grants to which they are en- titled by law, and which are neces- sary for their efficient progress. b published in various newspapers and periodicals for the fourth volume to CENTRIST LEAI)ER OBSERVES JUBILEE (By N.

Congress when it convenes in December in the hope that a federal law will be enacted whi:, will provide l adequate penalties to iiscourage the, I persistent evil. Representative Dyer, of Missouri, has announced that he will reintroduce his bill and an effort will be made to push it through. But whether such an effort is to succeed will .depend upon the force of public opinion back of it. The anti- lynching bill ran aground in the soal waters of political indifference during the past Congress. Strangely enough the chief opposition came from those who insisted upon interpreting it as reflection upon their states. They did not deny the act of lynching but they evidently regarded the lynchings as less of a reflection than the drastic law that was proposed to prevent their, and the bill died of inanition be- cause the interest in it was feeble, too feeble to overcome the curious pride [which admits the existence of an evil but rebels at the cure. more potent, those sources of strength which belong to our faqe. , Speaking later in the day on the matter of church architecture, Cardi- nal Bourne declared tbat the bohl- ness of the designer of Westminster Cathedral had set a new fashion, and had given a higher direction of thought to all ecclesiastical architects throughout the country. SIXTH CENT ,F2,IARY OF THOMAS AQUINAS (N. C. W. C News Service.)

In St. Thomas, the pope says, is exemplified'he proper union of doctrine and piety. Science and pie- ty, and scmnce and the virtues o truth and charity. The encyclical deals with the moral virtues of the saint, which, His Holi- ness declares, in St. Thomas were ad- mirably linked with charity which made the other virtues perfect. Par- ticular mention is made of the humili- ty and purity of saint, the pope de- claring that St. Thomas was charac- Catholic statistics entitle him to say that the figure 20,103,761 is so nearly correct that any errors which may be found, are negligible.
