JUGO-SLAVIA S YOUNG MEN'S SOCIETIES TO HOLD CONGRESS (By N. C. W. C. News Service) Agram (Jugo-Slavia), July 6.--The Catholic Young Men's Ohristian So- cieties of Jugo-Sla'ia will hold an in- ternational congress at Marburg-a- Drau, lasting from July 29 to August 3, when it is hoped to promote a move- ment fr uniting all the Catholic stu- dents of the Christian world in a Cath- olic Internationale. The  scheme has been under discussion for a long time now, but up to the present there has been little or no ]Lope of putting it in- to execution. But the Jugo-Slav Cath- olic Students' League of Agram, which will take part in the Marburg Con- gress, sees in that congress an occa- sion wben the first steps toward this international movement may be taken. The Agram League is taking the lead in promoting the movement, and has issuhd a call to organizations of Catholic students in all parts of the world to send representatives to the Marburg congress, for the purpose of taking part" in the deliberations, and so extending the new movement to ev- ery part of the orld. Financial conditions are said to have had a great deal to do in rebard- ing the movement particularly for Catholic students 'coming from for- eign countries. But the leaders of the Agra mLeague point out that the pres- ent is a very favorable time for Cath-. oies in foreign countries to visit Jugo- Slavia, since the rat.e of exchange will make the currencies of foreign coun- tries go a very long way, and make the cost of living very cheap in re- ality. lion francs in the rehabilitation and [equipment of churches. It was report- ed that" divine worship had been re- sumed in 2,464 churches and that pro- visional parochial shelters were pro- vided in 800 communes. In all 258,000 articles necessary to churches were furnished and 1,410 country rectors, who had lost everything they possessed during the war, were supplied with ne  outfits. The importance of thus providing such requisites as cassocks, hats and i other clerical garments is apparent when it is realized that, since the "law of separation" abolished the "cult budget," some dioceses are quite unable to give the parish priests ,alary of more than 400 francs a year --and now the cassock and hat'alone cost that amount. The fund has received not only money, but also the fruits of many Catholic women's labors. This ex- plains why, on the day of the armis- tice, the committee had in a ware- house ready for distribution, 8,00{1 chasubles embroidered by these' faith- ful workers. Gifts to the fund have come from almost everywhere--from Chili, In- dia, England. Some Swiss towns adopted certain French parishes in the ]   La.t. The Umted States, as all the workl knmvs came foremost in the list of donors. Archbishop Hayes of New York, sent 1,720,000 franes. France Will Not Forget Mgr. Cabanel, a former French mil- itary chaplain, who lectured in the IUnited States, spoke most impressive- ly during the meeting. After recall- ing" how strongly attached to their Ichurches were tlae populations of the devastated regions, and how urgent it was that they be supplied with at least temporary buildings, he laid particu- lar stress on the way in which he was welcomed in America. He was warm- ly cheered wken he declared that such great sympathy would not be forgot- ten in France. "No matter what the difficulties of certain post-war settlements may be, no matter what may be the uneasi- ness caused by the personal blunders of certain politicians, the French peo- ple will not be misled, but will retain a faithful gratitude and a deep affec- (taking care that a fair division is made among the parishes to satisfy at once the most needy); while at least helping the rectors in recovering hat belongs to them the committee is pro- ceedin without'loss of courage in its campaign among' the Catholics of France and their fellows all over the world. Restoration an Imperative Duty The secretary general sounded this note when he said that so long as the poor inhabitants of the devastated re- gimas are deprived of the barest neces- sities of physical and religious life the committee had no right to cease its la- bors. "And when, on the other hand we observe the undertakings of the for- eign Protestant propagandists," he continued, "and when ,'e hear that their propaganda will soon be intensi- fied, we realize more imperiously the duty of promoting everywhere the ef- forts of Catholics to prevent their re- ligion from being anywhere jeopar- dized on the ruins of churches 'that fell on the field of honor.'" Cardinal Amette in his closing ad- dress earnestly prayed his hearers not to slacken their efforts. FATHER E GARESCHE SOON TO  PUBLISH RESULT OF SURVEY (By N. C. W. C. News Service) New York July 26.' The Rev. Ed- ward F. Garesche, S. J., editor of the "Queen's Work," w.ho has just com- pleted a course or lectures at the Cath- olic summer school at Cliff Haven, has sailed from here for Europe in order to study Catholic social condi- tions and social works, especially among Sodalities of the Blessed Vir- gin. Father Garesche will first visit Ireland and England and then proceed to the continent. Before leaving" the United States, Father Garesche completed an exten- ;;ive sum, ey, covering a periof of five years, of social organization, in Cath- 61ic parishes, the results of ,hich will be published soon. He also completed a 'Wade Mecum" for nurses and so- cial workers to be pub]ished shortly. HELENA'S EXEMPLIFICATION. = . -- State Deputy E J.

C. News Service) Dublin, July 10.--The most ptable conversion that has take n place ih h'e- land for a considerable time is that of Miss Barton, sister of Mr. R. Bar- ton, member of parliament. Mr. Bar- ton is at present undergoing a three years' penal servitude in a convict prison in Eng'land for a political speech labelled "seditious" b# Dublin Castle. The Bartons are Wicklow stock, being an old Protestant family residing near Glendalough of the Seven Churches.. They are connected with Vhe Childers, one of whom was Chancellor of the British Exchequer, and with other celebrated English houses. Mr. Barton, M.

It shows that in 1919 the so- ciety received $1,471,648.53, which is he largest amount ever collected in a single year and an increas of $407,- ].67.26 over the receipts of 1918. By request of the S.

Although in n'ison he has been chosen chairman of the newly-elected Wicklow County Council The excessive severity of his sentence is regarded as a crime. It will be remembered that he made a daring ecape from prison, but was recaptured. ' i His sister, who has been reeeived i into the Church, is exceedingly pop-i ular. It is stated on trustworthy au- thority that Mr. Barton himself, when asked at Portland prison in what re- ligion he should be registered, replied "The Catholic religion."

News Service) Baltimore, Md., July 26.--Soldiers stationed at the six or more perma- nent army camps hereabouts, and sail- ors and marines whose steadily in- creasing quota on the streets o Balti- more gives evidence of this city's growing importance as a seapo, are rejoicing at the opening of the Gib- bons Service Club at 809 Cathedral street, which this week threw open its doors to enlisted men. The "club operates under the aus- pices of the National Catholic War Council, the interest of whicl organi- zation was enlisted through some of the camp commanders who pointed out that the city is without adequate post-war accommodations to take care of men on over-night leave of absence The old Lawrence Miller home, fam- ed for its collection of paintings, has been converted into a model clubhouse, ,with halls and parlors, a billiard room, cafeteria and reading and writing rqoms. There are sleeping accommo- dations for 150 men at the "nominal prices of 50 and 75 cents. A player piano and a victrola add gleatly to the enjoyment of the guests. * "KNIGIITS OF COLUMBUS.

I admire the success obtained by your organization, which is certain- ly favored with the blessings of Heaven. Even before the Holy Father raised His august voice in behalf of the missions through the Encyclical Letter, 'Maximum Illud,' American Catholics understood that your society was in need of more generous ssist- ance; they gave it willingly, showing thereby their appreciation of this pre- eminently. Catholic work and placing themselves at the head of its support- ers. "Accept for yourself your co-work- ers associates and benefactors my sin- core thanks for the help given to tlm missions and my best wishes that the sacrifices made for the diffusion of our Holy Faith be rewarded by Iteaven's choicest blessings. I ask our Lord to give you the means to continue and develop more and more the Society for the Propagation of the Faith." "G. CARD. VAN ROSSUM." The United States report is follow- ed by a summary of what other coun- tries contributed to the work last year, and it is gratifying for American Catholics to see that they occupy first place in the list of contributors, the second place being held by France. The total collected in the whole world, ex- clusive of the United States, is about eight million francs. The figures are given in French currency and owing to the fact that the rates, of exchange [differ in every country and vary ev- ery day, it is impossible to obtain a- correct idea of the relative contribu- tions of each one. At a normal rate of exchange, eight million francs would represent about $1,600,000; at the present rate it is about half that amount. ARCHBISHOP MUNDELEIN AIDS BOY SCOUT MOVEMENT (By N. C. W. C.
