"A great open air altar had been set up in front of Notre Dame and decorated with thousands of white lilies. The square, surrounding the edifice, was crowded on Sunday with devout pilgrims from all parts of the city and from the country. Peasant families were numerous, and after the service made themselves comfort- able in nearby parks, where they ate their box luncheons.

New York, Aug. 9.Detective Ame- do Palignani, the New York policeman who gained admittance into the Bres- ci group of Anarchists in 1914, be- came their confidant and psuedo-con. spirator for six months, and in March, 1915, foiled a plot to blow up St Patrick's Cathedral, has received, through Archbishop Hayes, a cerf i- cate of Apostolic Benediction (and plenary indulgence bearing the'no. writing of the Pope and the pal seal.  . Palignani, who is still in thd ser- vice, being attached to the Arsenal Station in Central Park, is the po- sessor of two certificates of honora- ble mention from the Police Depart- men,, and is justly proud of lx.'s ]aest recognition, which is conferrec ut seldom by the Vatican. Mr. Palignani is a member of St. Joseph's church, at Eighth street and Sixth avenue, this city. Joins Anarchists In October, 1913, a bomb was ex- p2oded in St. Patrick's Cathedral. Other churches were also bombed and public officials were menaced by Ant archists. After a number of poliee. men had been detailed to obtain men> bership in local anarchistic organizo tions and had failed, Palignani ws finally selected to make the attempt, The young detective the married but a short time, took his life in his hands. Disappearing from his family anu friends, he secured a job in an auto, mobile repair shop and in six weeks time had succeeded in obtaining meln, bership in an anarchistic group. With; in a short time he became a trustecl member ,,the mall  Bre.-Z" and advanced rapidly as  semi-lead- er, thereby keeping in direc contact with its operations. During his asso- ciations with the anarchistic group, Palignani managed to keep in close touch with police headquarters, and every move was reported by him. He helped in the manufacture of three bombs which were to have been used to blow up the Cathedral, and with two others went to the edifice wibh the ostensible design of aiding in car- rying out the plot. When he and his companions reached the Cathedral the edifice was alive with detectives. Some were disguised as scrub women. The anarchists were overcome and the bombs seized. The conspiring com- panions of the detective, Charles Car- bone and Frank Arbone, were convict- ed and sentenced to serve twelve years in Sing Sing prison. Unknown to Palignani, many prom- ment Catholics instituted a movement to obtain Papal recognition of his deed. The movement was headed by Brother Edward, instructor m lan- guages in De La Salle Institute. Af- ter careful investigation the Pope verified the certificate on June 12, and it was forwarded to Archbishop Hayes, who sent it to the detectlve's home. Palignani was given one honorable mention by the police department for the Cathedral expose. UNEARTH SCRIPT OF COPTIC VERSION OF ST. JOHN'S GOSPEL (By N. C. W. C. News Service.)

Chicago, Aug. 13.--Cat'helle hospi- tals throughout the United State. and Canada, as well as other hospi- tals, owe a real debt to President Hating, according to Matthew O. Fo- ley, managing editor, "Hospital Man- agement," and executive secretary of the National Hospital Day Commit- tee. It was President Harding's un- derstanding of the importance of hos- pital work and of the n,cesslty of greater community co-operation with these institutions which led to his hearty encouragement of the move- ment to improve relations between the people and their hospitals in 1921. His reiterated interest in this work in succeeding years was a big factor in trebling the 1,500 hospitals which celebrated first National Hospital Day on May 12, 1921. Help of Great Value The public mmouncements and let- ters of President Harding were of un- told value to Sisters in arousing inter- est in their hospital's programs for National Hospital Day, and practical- ly every announcement by a sister's hospital included some prase or the President's dealing wih the value of the work the hospitals are doing and encouraging the public to becom more interested in the hospitals of the community. The wide publicity given President Harding's statements concerning hos- pitals and the importance o National Hospital Day, brought this move- ment to the 'attention of Catholic Sis- ters in Alaska and other places with the result that real progress was made in improving relations with the pbe  and .., makinw,,.,tle .,community realize its responsibility in the sup- port of the work of the hospitals. To Be Remembered "President Harding's name will lisa in the history of every progressive Catholic hospital," added Mr. Foley, "because it was through his personal efforts toward the establishment of a better understanding between the public and hospitals that many Sis- ters' hospitals won greater support in their efforts to render service." CARD. FAULHABER PAYS TRIBUTE TO MORALITY OF AMERICAN CITIZEN By Dr. Frederick Funder (Vienna Correspondent, N. C. W. C. News Service) Vienna, Aug. 3.The high estima- tion in which morality is held in the United States was emphasized by His Eminence, Cardinal Faulhaber of Mu- nich, in a public address In which he dealt of his impressions of the Ameri- can people. "Public morality is more highly es- teemed in America than it is amon us," said Cardinal Faulhaber in his address which was given before a large audience in Munich. "There are three kinds of public morality among which we must dlSr. tinguish" said His Eminence. "There is an Arabian-Turkish type, appear- ing in public full of dignity and deep- ly veiled, but like unto 'whited sepul- chres,' for despite the absurdity and hypocricy with which it surrounds it- self it has no real sincerity. The there is a type of public morality with certain principles o nerolsm, but characterized by frivolity and a de- sire to'be considered either pious m bigoted. And lastly, there Is a publm morality whicl presents itself plain- ly, with genuine good breeding and without pretence. This last type is to be found throughout America and it impressed me very much." Cardinal Faulhaber paid tribute to the charity of America Catholics to- Wards Germany and said that the' poor especially had been generous out of their poverty. There have been many conversions among the Jews in Palestine since the war ended, and greater success is pos- sible. Already missionary priests, converts from Judaism, are offering ihe.mselves for the work. Number 8 "'No Finer Knighthood" "Patriotic and Devoted to American Principles" PRESIDENT COOLIDGE ON K. OF C. Montreal, Aug. 6.--A message from President Coolidge hail- ing the Knights of Columbus as a "patriotic order, steadfastly de- voted to American principles and ideals," was read at the forty- first international convention of that organization in session here today. In the message, presented by William C. Prout, state deputy of the Massachusetts Kights of Columbus, Coolidge said: "The Knights of Columbus is in every sense a patriotic order. You have established great war charities; you have helped to Jill the national treasury with your contributions to the various liberty loans and you have sent your dearest trod best to bear the bznt of battle. "Your order has ever shown its steadfast devotion to Ameri- call principles and American ideals. You are Knights of Colum- bus, a name of great significance, represeting not only a great discovery, but tile eternal principle of all discovery and progress. "When all the world doubted, when his own fellows sought to turn back, he sailed on, daring to follow the truth. There is no finer knighthood. "In it your noble order stands resisting all evil counsel, sup- porting every patriotic cause, following the eternal principle ,hay 'the truth shall nmke you free.'" THREE CARDINALS ATTEND TRIDUUM TO HONOR TERESA Lisieux, France, Aug. 6.The beat- ification of Sister Teresa of the Child Jesus was formally proclaimed at the opening of the solemn triduum in her honor here, in the little town where she perfected herself in those works of sanctity which have caused the Church to single her out as one of God's elect. The ceremony was mark- ed with all the splendid ritualistic so- lemnity with which the Church sees fit to surround such occasions. 100,000 Present More than 100,000 Catholics throng- d this ancient Norman town com- pletely exhausting its accommoda- tions for visitors. When the triduum was opened with a Solemn High Mass in the Church of St. Joseph, crowds unable to gain admission, knelt in the streets for blocks around during the service. Afterwards, they lined the streets while the reliquary containing the ashes of Sister Teresa was car- tied in procession to the Carmel Chapel. This chapel has been chosen as the final resting place for the rel- ics of the newly beatified nun. Card. Dougherty Three Cardinals, Princes of the Church, from as many different na- tionsCarcnal Touchet, Archbishop of Orleans; Cardinal Bourne, Arch- bishop of Westminster, and Cardinal Dougherty, Archbishop of Philadel- phia, were present. Sixteen Bishops nd four Mitred Abbots in their ec- clesiastical robes added to the splen- dor and solemnity of the ceremonies. Spectators marveled at the scene as one of the most impressive acts of faith in Europe since the World War. It was interpreted as an indication that religious indifference is being widely supplanted by a spirit of faith. WOMEN IN KNICKERS GREGORIAN CHANT COURSES IN N. Y.

Included in the group were two Sisters of Mercy from Wesbarre, Pa., two members of the same order from Titusville, Ohio, and a Benedic- tine nun from Covington, Kentucky.
