"Russia will never fight America nor be allied with any country fight- Jag America," is the word brought back from Russia by Charles Flynn of Carthage, N. Y., most raveled Knights .of Columbus secretary, who has covered more than 100,000 miles as a K. of C. welfare worker for American troops in France, Belgium, Great Britain, Ireland, Germany, Italy, Hawaii ,Honolulu, Japan, China, SN beria and Russia. In Flynn's report to Supreme Sec- retary William J. McGinley of the K. of C., he states that he witnessed the last unrecorded battle of the A. E, F., known as the battle of nowhere because it was fought near Lake Baikal, 2,200 miles inland from Vladi- vostok. "Eight hundred Americans were pitted against 3,000 Russians," he de- clares, "but the Americans forced the Russians to capitulate by a rapid and impressive display of artillery strength. The Americans lost four and the Russians 52 men. A Russian general told me after the skirmish that Americans were regarded as the keenest and most resourceful fighting men in the world and that the people of Russia could never be forced into war with the U. S." Flynn states that the Americans faced the bitterest hardships in Rus- sia, and that only a K-. of C. box-car hut, carrying movies and creature comforts far into the interior, kept them in touch with the homeland. WESTERN KNIGHTS CELEBRATE SILVER JUBILEE IN CHICAGO (n" . c. w. c. NWS SEBVm:J Chicago, Ill., July &--During the Democratic convention in Chicago in 1896, while William Jennings Bryan was making the famous "Cross of Gold" speech that resulted in his nom- ination for the Presidency, a band of twenty-three ardent Catholics met in a hail a few blocks away and organ- ized Chicago Council 132 Knights of Columbus, the first council organfzed west of the Allegheny Mountains. In the twenty-five years that have elapsed Chicago Council with its twen- ty-three members has become the par- ent of sixty-seven councils in Cook County with a membership of 45,000 and of 91 councils outside the county in Illinois with an aggregate mem- bership for the entire state ,f close to seventy-five thousand, Degree teams from Chicago Council also carried the message of Knight- hood into dozens of other western states and furnished the initiative which has resulted in the installation of thousands of councils with member- ship running into the hundreds of thousands. To celebrate the silver jubilee of the K. of C. Order in the west, a vast throng gathered last night at the Ho- tel Sherman and carried out a pro- gram that combined a tribute to the living and a memorial to the dead. Seventeen of the twenty-three in the first class of Chicago were present to tell again the story'of the historic 0rganization. Prayers were offered and words of kindness said .for the six members of the class who had passed away. Supreme Knight James A. Flaher- ty of Philadelphia and Edward J.. Houlihan of Chicago, State Deputy and Supreme Director, were the guests of honor, the latter talking, "Twenty-five Years in Retrospect" and former, "A Message from the East." Grand Knight Francis B. Allegretti made the address of welcome and the Rev. S. R. Roumie, Chaplain of the Council, gave the invocation. State Secretary Henry J. Lynch, lecturer of the council, was toastmas- ter. A history of the Council, which in reality is the story of Knighthood in the West, written by Richard J. Murphy, histiographer, was a feat- ure of the anniversary. FRIENDSHIP. What is it that charms us most in a friend. It is that he can read the transient expression in our face and modify himself to suit the feeling we are ourselves but half-conscious of ossessing; it is that he knows when to be silent and when to speak; it is that he never mistakes, but sees us true, when all the world is wrong about us. Such a friend has not onlj power of character, but beauty of character. See how high you can hold your head and how deeply you can breathe whenever you get out of doors.

Bishop, will cover the whdle diocese in the interest of the Laymen's Council, seeking to have the several diocesan units to function in this great and most necessary prop- agation of the united force and action of our Catholic people in affairs that touch upon them as church members hymns. There was a great popu'a demonstration. St. Dominic Centenary The Holy Father has published an encyclical letter on the centenary of St. Dominic in which he describes the prerogatives of te Dominican Order, its profound attachment to the Holy See, and its devotion to the Blessed Virgin. St. Dominic's faith i: demonstrated by his triumphan vindication of Catholic doctrine in his victorious struggle against the Albigenian heresy, aml by the great doctors of the Order, particularly St. Thomas Aquinas. The attachment of St. Dominic to the Holy See ia shown in his pledge to Innocent II] on the institution of the Third Order that it would defend the pontificate and by the action of St. Catherine o Siena in bringing about tho Pope' return from Avigffon. Pope Benedict urged the Dominic ans to emulate their founder's vir- tues; to intensify the religious in- struction of the people and to encour- age the devotion of the rosary. Pope Benedict has given a beauti ful flag to the Catholic Circle. Car dinal Ratti blessed the flag at a great meeting which was addressed by the Catholic members of the Italian cat- inet. deputies, and professors of th royal university, who made splendid professions of faith. Prince Hirohito of Japan will reach Rome next Monday, and on Saturday will be received in solemn audience by the Holy Father.

De Valera Proclamation. A warning against undue confidence in regard to the results of the impend- ing conference in London was sounded here today, in a proclamation by Eamonn de Valets. "Unbending determination to en dare all that may still e necessary and fortitude such as you have shown in all your recent sufferings--these alone will lead you to the peace you desire," Republican leaders read. "Should force be resumed against our nation, you must be ready, on your part, once more to resist. Thus alone will you secure the final abandonment of force and the acceptance of justic "Young fellow, I wouldn't take the chance you're taking if I were fac- ing a murder charge," Patrolman Kineavy called to Scheeler. "Don't make one of us go armed after you because you have to come some time. Take my tip and crawl back. Think of hell." "Wait a minute; give me a chance, I'll come as quick as I can," said Scheeler, when he had begun, to meas- ure the danger. And come  back he did. Patrolman K ineavy is highly re- garded by his pastor, Monsignor Eu- gene Murphy. EVERY CATHOLIC'S PRAYER. The Rosary is a prayer for very person.

While expressing the intention of Sinn Fein "leaders to do all in their power to ecure the peaceful termina- tion of the struggle, De Valets warns his followers that history and particularly our own history, and the character of the issue to be decided book; the innocent child going up to I her First Holy Communion; the sol-I diet boys in the trenches in the face I of war's hell; priests and religious[ and lay people; learned and unlet- I tered; all pray and prize their rosary.
