The district officers will also make their annual reports of the district meetingsthat have been held during the year since the last state convention. The City of Conway is most appropriately chosen as the place for the convention. The Catho- licity of this city is as proverbially tarnous as its hospitality. Cen- trally located in the state it may be easily reached by good roads from almost any point in Arkan- sas. Extensive plans are being made by the Catholic and non- Catholic residents to give the delegates every possible conveni- ence of accommodation while they' are in Conway. More detailed plans for the con- vention, its program and instruc- tions to delegates will be an- nounced later in The Guardian. i Commite Selects Design For Huge Congress Altar (Continued from page 1) charist, while the iron. is sym- bolic of the solid, unyielding strength of faith. The iron cresting, topping the cornice, is adapted from many of the fine old residences of the past century, built in the up-town sec- tion, now known as the Garden District. The dome covering 20 feet in diameter, is similar to the cus- tomary method of church sanc- tuary treatment, and also recalls the old St. Louis hotel dome, long a landmark of the Vieux Carte skyline. It is surmounted by a cross, tipped with the recalling the holding of the cross aloft here for the first time by the French missionaries. The throne, strictly liturgical, is also carried out in treillage or iron lacework, in agreement with the design of the canopy. It is in French, royal design, in har- mony with the city's French co- lonial traditions. Term) "-Political Adv.

Host for (:atholic Union (:onvention b Tim entire ensemble is striking- ly New Orleans, picturizing old New Orleans, with its balconies, with its typical noted old homes, with its delicate iron traceries, with its quaint French colonial atmosphere. It is indeed a splen- did and masterful adaptation of these native trc.asurcs to the lit- urgy of the Church. And it is around this beautiful embodiment of New Orleans that all the impor- tant colorful and solemn cere- monies of the congress will take place. The altar itself, in the center beneath the canopy, will be in liturgical style. It will be con- structed of white American mar- ble in severely simple design. Up- on this altar will stand six mas- sive candlesticks, being construct- ed especially for the occasion. From the ceiling of the canopy and directly above the altar will hang a nine-foot crucifix of Louis- iana cypress. Construction of the altar will require about 60 days. All of the work and material will be local, it was stated by Rt. Rev. Msgr. Peter M. H. Wyhoven, active gen- eral chairman. One of the features of the great altar will be its illumination. The dome, being constructed of a new cellophane material in amber used here for the first time), will be flooded with a golden light from within. Brilliant lights from the ceiling of the canopy will flood the cresting of the cornice to sil- houette it. The architect has provided spec- ial concealed space in front of the platform for use of the press and radio broadcasters. Grouped upon this huge plat- form about the towering canopy during congress ceremonies in their purple robes will be more than 100 Archbishops and Bish- ops from all parts of the nation, several hundred Monsignori also in the robes of their rank and scores of black garbed Abbots, likewise scores of Papal Knights in their resplendent uniforms, some of them never before seen in New Orleans, including the col- WHO W|ll tgevresent YOU in the Next Legislature? Greater Interest In Lay Retreats Conference Urges Niagara University, N. Y. (IC).-- A plea to Catholic laity for more interest in retreats and a discus- sion on the financial aspect of na- tional retreat movements featured the opening day's session of the Eighth National Conference of the Laymen's Retreat Movement here. For those in ignorance of the retreat movement, for those who refrain from attending retreats because of expense, for those who claim that they "never Seem to find time to make a retreat," the Rev. T. J: O'Sullivan, Wichita, Kans., recommended "The Day of Recollection," where the best fea- tures of a retreat could be incor- porated in a day's time. Father O'Sullivan told' how a Wichita retreat house had increas- ed retreat enrollment directly through the medium of recollec- tion days which were devoted to a program consisting of the eele --, bration of Mass, a sermon, Com- munion breakfasz and religious exercises in the afternoon such as Station of the Cross and Bene- diction. The discussion Centered around two major issues: (1) more coop- eration among local retreat leagues and houses in the promotion of national movements; and (2) dio- cesan backing of local retreats as integral parts of a national body. | orful regalia of the Knights of the Holy Sepulchre. 'Seated on the highest platform, above all others gathered on the graded levels, will stand out in his scarlet robes the Prince of the Church, the Cardi- nal selected by the Pope to be his personal representative at New Orleans for the congress. And upon the white marble altar will stand for the first time in liturgical use, the magnificent, glittering ostensorium with the Sacred Host. The altar and its great canopy with its glowing, golden dome, will be a fitting and impressive setting for this brilli- ant, colorful and impressive gath- ering, the like of which New Or- leans has never seen.
