The National Welfare Council was repre- =nted by the Re';. Dr. J;:mes H Ryan, Executive Secretary; and by the Rt. Roy. Msgr. George A. Dough- erty, vice-rector of the Catholic Uni- versity" of America. Mrs. ttarry M. Benzinger, National Secretary of the National Council of Catholic Women; Miss Agnes Regan, Executive Secre- tary, and MrS. Charles P. Neill, rep- resented that organization. Members of the headquarters staff of the Na- tional Catholic Welfare Council, a del- egation representing the Knights of Columbus, and members o other Catholic bodies marched in the pro- cession. At the Capitol, under the great dome, the historic catafalque which has been used for State funerals since the burial of Lincoln was ready to re- ceive the mortal remains of another President. A thousand men and wo- men were crowded into tne txmxed space available to witness the brief and simple services. Outside, all around the Capitol grounds, thous- ands waited for a glimpse of the cas- ket and the procession. Noticeable in the throng was a group of fifty Cath- lic Sisters who arrived in two large sight-seeing busses and were given a place of vantage on the northeast edge of the Capitol plaza. The military escort drew up to line facing the East Door and steps from which Warren G. Har(Img had de- livered his Inaugural address March 4, 1921. Many of the picked veter- ans who made up the escort toclay had also been in the escort for that occa- sion. The walls of the Capltot rotunda were banked with floral offerings, from Kings, States, fraternal organi- zations, churches, civic clubs and plain citizens. A large wreath from the National Catholic Welfare Council bore the inscription: "May his place be in peace and his abode in Holy Zion." 'nese words were a part of the statement issued by Archbishop Han- na, of San Francisco, Chairman of the Administrative Committee of the National Catholic Welfare Council, at the time of the late President's death. Mrs. Coolidge, wife of the late President's successor in office, enter- ed the rotunda a few mhmtes before the body arrived. She took a seat near the catafalque. Newman's Hymn His Favorite While the strains of Cardinal New- man's "Lead Kindly Light," one of Mr. Harding's favorite hymns, float- ed in from the plaza, the casket warn carried on. Theu came Mrs. Harding-, dressed simply, in deep mourning, and controlling her emotions with that remarkable fortitude which she had exhibited since her hsband was stricken. She was accompanied by Secretary Christian and Dr. Sawyer. Followed a slight delay, then the ne President of the United States, Calvin Coolidge, called to his high office by the death of a dear personal friend, entered with bowed head and misty eyes. Cabinet members, diplomats and high officials entered and the ser- vices began. The services themselves were sim- ple and brief. A prayer recited by the Rev. J. Freeman Anderson, pas- tor of Calvary Baptist church, where the late President worshiped in Washington, the Cardinal's hymn re- peated by a little group of singers with no musical accompaniment, a prayer by the Rev. James Shera Montgomery, Chaplain of the House of Representatives, and the benedic- tion imparted by Dr. Anderson. President Coolidge left by the east door and Mrs. Harding went ou through the corridor leading to the Senate wing of the Capitol. All afternoon the crowds fiIeu through the rotunda for a last view of the dead President. More than 50,- 000 passed through in the few hours allotted for the body to lie in state. When the doors were closed it wa estimated thatat least lO,000 person were still outside waiting and disap- pointed. JOSEPH'S ACADEMY Mena, Arkansas Boarding and Day School for Girls.
