Doyle, Uncle of Local Priest, Honored Philadelphia. rE).  Announce- ment has been made that His Be- atitude Aloysius Barlassina, Patri- arch of Jerusalem, with the ap- proval of the Holy See and of His Eminence Dennis Cardinal Dougherty, Archbishop of Phila- delphia, appointed Michael Fran- cis Doyle to be Lieutenant, or President, of the Order of the Holy Sepulchre in the United States. Mr. Doyle is an uncle of the Rev. Father Joseph A. Doyle, as- siStantat Forrest City, Arkansas. When'Father Doyle was ordained this year in St. Andrew's Cathe- dral, Mr. Francis Doyle planned to come to Arkansas for the cere- mony. Last moment difficulties prevented him for doing so. He at- tended Father Doyle's first Sol- emn High Mss in Philadelphia. The appointment is made to fill the vacancy caused by the death of the late Victor Dowlin_, Presid- ing Judge of the Court of Appeals of New York, who formerly oc- cupied this post. The Equestrlan Order of the Holy Sepulchre is one of the old- est orders of Chivalry. It was founded by Godfrey de Bouillon in the eleventh century during the first Crusade and antedates the Order'of the Garter, the Golden Fleece and other famous orders of Knighthood. The Latin Kings of Jerusalem instituted a guard of Archbishop Rummel, sponsoring the congress, has just revealed the design selected for the altar, the conception of Jack J. H. Kessels, local architect. It was the unani- mous selection made by the art committee of the congress from among six designs submitted. The committee in selecting the design of Mr. Kessels, was influenced mainly by this unique adaptation of typical old New Orleans archi-i tectural feature. The altar design: is in keeping wlth efforts being; made to embody New Orleans into every possible angle of tlae great demonstration of faith scheduled for next October, as has been done in the official emblem, in the magnificent monstrance and in the decorations. The altar will stand on a cruci- form platform occupying a space 120 feet square. The platform will be built on four levels to permit the proper placing of dig- nitaries and prelates who will be grouped about the central altar. The altar itself will stand in the center of the highest platform to- ward the back. It will be sur- mounted by a towering canopy, fashioned of balcony iron work supports holding up. a cornice copied from old New Orleans homes and capped by a huge transparent golden dome, from the center of which will rise an illuminated cross. To the left of the center of the platform will be the throne for the Papal Legate, this throne also being fashioned of typical iron tracery. The four supports of the canopy, representing the four corners of the nation gathered about the Blessed Sacrament, are openwork, cast-iron treillage or lace-work, for which the Vieux Carre is so justly famous. The tracery de- sign of grapevine and' grape clus- ters was taken from an original casting in a building close to the St. Louis Cathedral, hence is an aflaptation from the very heart of Catholicism in the archdiocese, the mother-diocese of 26 Sees in the Mississippi Valley.

(lO.The school situa- tion in Liverpool, where the City Council has refused to make grants to Catholics for the building of new schools demanded by recent legislation, has reached a crisis. The Board of Education has in- formed the council that it will withhold $75,000 a month for its efficiency grant. Protestant bigots who support- ed' the conservative party, which dominates the City Council, in it action against the Catholic schools,, may now be faced with a sub- stantial rise in the local rates. Grants Authorized Local authorities were authoriz-. ed to grant as much as 75 per- cent of the cost of erecting new schools which have been rendered ' necessary by the new laws. All over the country local authorities: have fallen into line, and in most. cases they have granted the full' 75 per cent. The conservatives in Liverpool, however, fought an election on the promise that they would not give a penny toward the building of Catholic and other non-provid- ed schools. They won the election and now they are facing the re-action to their policy. \\; In telling the Liverpool coun-\\; cil of its decision to withhold $75,- 00O a month, the Board of Edu- cation comments on the lax man- ner in whil'r the Liverpool eduea-. tion authority has attempted to. taclde the new conditions arising from the 1936 Education Act. Previously the Board had sent' a series of memoranda to Liver- pool warning the local authority of what would happen if it per- sisted in its policy of non-corn-.. pliance with the Act.
