He, too, was a leader among the Socialists of Massachusetts nineteen years ago, and ran for mayor of Boston on the Socialistic ticket. His failure to get a disavowal of the immora doctrines of Marx and Ingels, caused him to re- sign from the movement. Eight years after his conversion, Mr. Goldstei was engaged by the Knights of Columbus as a nation-wide lecturer, and has filled the position year after year. He is a daily communicant, and there is no doubt whatever among those who know him intimately and well, that he is a most sincerecon- vert, and like Mrs. Avery, devoted to spreading tbe light of the Faith. He recognizes the fact that the great mass of the people do not realize the beautiful doctrines of the Church, and has/a firm conviction that if people once became aware of the truths pro- claimed by the Church, there are mil- lions who would throw aside their prejudices and take the proper steps to secure a happy eternity. He is sec- retary of the Catholic Truth Guild of Boston, Mass., which is under the di- rection of His Eminence Cardinal O'Connell, and he is devoting all his time, like Mrs. Avery, in explaining the doctrines of the Church. His mot- to is: "To make the Church better known and better loved." Like most converts he lost all his old-time friends when he became a Catholic, and for many years suffered much from their sharp and misjudged re- proaches. SIX FRENCH NUNS GET HONOR MEDAL FROM GOVERNMENt1 (By N. C. W. C. News Service) Paris, Aug. ll.--The Prefect of the Department of la Manche recentIy went to the hospital of Saint Lo to *resent the Medal of Honor to two nuns on behalf of the Minister of La- bor. He delivered a brief address in which he expressed his satisfaction at being able to accomplish such a mis- sion in the name of the Government. He then spoke in terms of the high- est praise of all the nuns who are de- voting themselves to the care of chil- dren, the aged and the sick of every kind. "What sacrifices," he said, "what fatigue, what care their work requir- ed! Assuredly all are deserving of praise, but sometimes there are some who have rendered exceptional ser- vices, either because of the difficulties they have had to meet or because of the length of their services. The Gov- ernment is happy to b able to give them a special mark of its gratitude." Four other nuns were decorated in other hospitals. l GERMAN CHURCH ART EXHIBIT IN BRAZIL (By, N. C. W. C. News Service) Cologne, Aug. ll.--The exhibit ot Germancchsiastical art at the Bra- zil exposition was one of the most notable European Catholic features of the exposition, according to re- ports received here. The exhibit was under the direction of the noted Ger- man Franciscan, Father p. p. Sinzig. The German ambassador took part in the formal opening of the exhibit. Many high dignitaries of the Church in Brazil were present. The Catholic church flourishes most in a republic.

Pope Plus himself is taking the keenest interest in the campaign to encourage more modest dress and repeatedly of late has man- ifested his interest in no uncertain way. Only the other day there was quite an instructive scene within the Vati- can walls, which showed plainly the Pope's determination to have the rules regarding papal audiences, at least, strictly observed. The societies of a certain parih in Rome were about to be received and the parish priest, as well as an Arch- bishop who lives in tle same parish, accompanied them to the Vatican. On being warned by the Cameriere Se- greto who was given charge of the party, they stopped at the entrance of the papal apartment and required all the ladies to pass before them. Then, much to the surprise of the women, they separated them into two lines, one of which was instructed to go to the right and the other to the left. + When all had filed past and taken up their respective places the Arch-] bishop conducted the line on thel right, the members of which were all severely garbed in dresses that corn- London, Aug. 17.--Chinese bandis pletely covered their arms and necks, attacked the town of Tsaoshih yes- into the papal apartment.

The result was that on the following morning the thirty women who had failed to follow the instructions were left behind. Nor is the Vatican the only place of Catholic interest in which modest attire is being insisted upon. At the entrance of every church in Rome, the Cardinal Vicar has had affixed a card which forbids the admission of persons not dressed according to standards of Christian modesty. At Naples the Archbishop has ordered that wdmen whose dresses do not cover arms and neck should not be ad- mitted to Holy Communion. At Ve- nice the Cardinal Patriarch has sent a circular to the parish priests and rec- tors of churchez forbidding them to admit who are not modestly dressed to tile acraments, ann v,]el7 necessary .to send them from the church.

News Service) Indianapolis, Aug. 20.--The late President Warren G. Harding, had the peculiar honor, for a Protestant and a laynmn, of once speaking from the pulpit of a Catholic Church, ac- cording to the Indiana Catholic and Record, which gives the following ac- count taken from its files: "St. Mary's church, Marion, was about to dedicate its new high school in 1918. They were looking about for a speaker for the occasion and the name of Senator Harding was sug- gested. It was doubted that he would come to speak for the Catholic high school, but Father Denning and the trustees invited him and, to the surprise ofma ny, he accepted. Memormble Address "When it became certain tlat the Senator was to be there, nearly all of Marion crowded to attend the Catho- lic high school dedication, and it was found the building was far too small, so the celebration had to be held in the church, and the speakers had to speak from the pulpit. So Senator lIarding spoke in a Catholic church from a Catholic pulpit and made a memorable address, commending what Catholics had done in the cause of education. At that time, as now, there was much bigotry abroad in the land. Mr. Harding got much praise for his speech at + that time, but he also got much criticism from bigots That did not worry him." PAGE FIVE Y C A. ENROLLED- 20,000 NEW MEMBERS DURING PAST YEARS New York, Aug. 20.--More than 20,000 new,members have joined the Young Men's Christian Association in the United States and Canada during he past year, according to a state- ment given out here by Dr. John R. Mott, general secretary of the asso ciation's international committee. The total membership of the organization in the United States and Canada is now in excess of 909,000, l=e said. Th statement also revealed the fact that the Y. M. C. A. is now erect- ing sixty-four new buildings at a total estimated cost of $15,000,000. Con- tributions last year from all sources aggregated $11,981,000. BERNARD SHAW FINDS CORK AND KERRY MUCH SAFER THAN LONDON Dublin, Aug. ll.--Bernard Shaw, the. famous writer, has spent his sum- mer holidays in Ireland. Giving his impressions of the country, he says that Cork and Kerry are much safer in respect of both person and proper- ty than the adimnistrative County of London. In short, he observes, there is not the smallest reason why Glen- gariff and Parknasllla should not be crowded this year "with refugees from the turbulent sister island and the revolutionary continent, as well as by connoisseurs in extraordinarily beautiful scenery and in air which makes breathing a luxury."
