Fur- Fathed did not actually leave the thermore, no therapeutic treatment Vatican City, because St. Peter's intervenes with the exception of Square, according to the Lateran Treaty, is within the boundalies of the city and belongs to the small ter- ritorial domain of the Pope. The construction of the new Col. lege of Propaganda Fide is rapidly nearing completion, and with the ap- proach of its inauguration it can be said that if it is not absolutely cer- Cain, it is at least highly probable, that the Holy Father will leave the Vatican to take part in the ceremony. There are two dates which most prob- ably will be selected for the inaugura. lion. One is Nov. 4, the' Feast of St. Charles Borromeo, the patron of Milan, and one so dear to Pope Plus XI, which is also the opening day of the new scholastic term. The sec- ond date is Dec. 3, the feast of St. Francis Xavier, patron of the Mis- aions and special patron of the Prop- aganda College. Interest In Propaganda College A little over two years ago on May 12, 1928---Pope Plus XI took par~ in the laying of the foundation stone of this new edifice. May 12 is St. Achille's day, and th~ Holy Father, wishing personally to bless the foundation stone, had it carried to the Vatican Gardens and placed in front of the chapel of Our Lady of Lourdes. The stone was blessed there by His Holiness, and was ~fterward carried to the statue of St. Theresa of the Child Jesus, the patroness of all missionaries ~and their work. The stone was then travsported to Janicu- lum Hill, where Cardinal Van R0s- sum, Prefect of the Sacred Congre- gation of Propaganda Fide, officiated at its lowering into place as part of the foundations~ of the Chapel, which is the center and heart of the mag- nificent new structure. In view of the foregoing, it seems more ~han probable that Pope Plus will be present at the inauguration of ~hd edifice now nearing comple- tion. There are no material difficul- ties standing in the way of the Pope going to the site of the new build- ing, as ~he Janiculum is separated from the Vatican only by a road, and the property on which the Propa- ganda College stands is recognized by the Lateran Treaty as property of the Holy Seo with privileges of extraterritorlallty. Proud of Mission Title Pope laius XI is proud to be known as the "Pope of the Missions," which he certainly deserves to be called be- cause of his remarkable work for the benefit of Catholic Missions. He has shown a particularly solicitous inter- est in the Propaganda College. It seems, therefore, virtually certain that he will again leave the Vatican on the occasion of the inauguration of the new home of the College. LOURDES MIRACLES ARL~ REVISED AT MARION CONGRESS (Continued From Page 1) and Lourdes. A little girl sent the entire contents of her savings bank-- two francs. Cardinal Verdier, as Papal Legate, was accorded the highest honors by the civil authorities. The railway sta- tion was decorated with the colors of flammes in the colors Of the Virgin. - flammes in the colore of the Virgin. Welcomes were given the prelate by the prefect of the Hautes:Pyrenees, representing the government, by the mayor of Lourdes and by Deputy Achille Fould.. Each morning during the congress a pontifical h~gh Mass was chanted in the basilica, and every afternoon sol- emn Benediction was given on the esplanade following an open-air pro- cession. After nightfall a great pro- cession in.which torchlights were car- vied lft up the city, the basilica and the Mount of Calvary. A large number of priests and lay- men ~ttended the conferences where the themes of study were the dogma of the Immaculate Conception, the ap- paritions at Lourdes, pilgrimages and miracles. One of the most remarkable ad- dresses devoted to the discussion of miracles was delivered by Dr. Vallet, president of the Bureau of Verifica- tions. Dr. Vallet reminded his hear- ers that all physicians, whether be- lievers or non-believers, are admit~ed~ and even urged to take part in the verification of the facts of the cures which the Churoh, after medical reg- istration, declares, if she judges it agropos, of a super-natural order and : properly miraculous. ~He characterized the extraordinary Lourdes water, a natural agent which 'in itself, is not radio-active and upon analysis reveals itself as perfectly anoc~rne. Dr. Vallet reviewed for his au- dience, as an example of a Lourdes cure, the case of Abbe Dessailly, a young priest of Soissons. When in "September, 1928, he was immersed in the waters of Lourdes, Abbe Des- }dilly was suffering from double pul- monary tuberculosis in the last stages. Since that time he has been "in a state of health as perfect as pos- sible. He gained over four pounds ~in two days and 20 pounds within 22 days. At present he is literally flourishing and his appetite is just What it should be for a man of 24 years. The different medical verifications, Dr. Vallet declared, leave no grounds for uncertainty. Paris, Aug. ll.~In an acount of the Marian CongTess at Lourdes as reported in the Echo de Paris by Charles de Pichon, His Holiness Pope Plus XI is said to have declared to Msgr. Gerlier recently: "'If ever I leave Rome, on my firJt pilgrimage I shall go again to Lourdes." Workers From 30 States at Great Rural Life Session Bishop-Elect O'Hara, of Great Falls, Named Honorary Head of Cath- olic Group---Roy. W. Howard Bishop Re-elected President (By N. C. W. C. News Service} Springfield, Ill., Aug. 29.---The Rev. Dr. Edwin V. O'Hara, director of the Catholic Rural Life Bureau N~ational Catholic Welfare Ca~nfer- ence, and Bishop-Elect of Great Falls Mont., was elected honorary presi- dent of the Catholic Rural Life Con- ference at its eighth annual meeting, which closed here yesterday. The Rev. W. Howard Bishop of Clarksville. Md., was re-elected pres- ident of the conference. The Rev. George Nell of Effingham, Ill., was elected vi, ce president. The Rev. Fe- lix N. Pitt of Louisville, Ky., was re- elected recording secretary and the Rev. Joseph Schmidt of Carlisle, Pa., was renamed treasurer. The office ef executive secretary, which has been held by Bishop-Elect O'Hara, was not filled at the meeting. This eighth annual meeting was hailed as one of the most successful in the history of the conference. Del- egates were registered from some 5'0 states, coming from as far east as New York and as far West as Cali- fornia. The discussion ~centered on religious education for public school children, with particular reference to vacation schools. Three Bishops Attend At the mass meeting which marked the first evening of the convention hero there were bn the platform, in addition to Msgr. M. A. Tarrant, the chairman and officers of the con- ference, the Rt. Rev. James A. Grif- fin, Bishop of Springfield in Illinoie under whose patronage the meeting was held here; the Rt. Rev. J. H. Seblarman, Bishop of Peoria, and the Rt. Rev. Bernard J. Shell, Auxiliary Bishop of Chicago. The conference was welcomed on this occasion by a representative of Governor Louis M. Emmerson of Illinois. Of particular interest was the ses- sion on "Treatment of Religious Mis- understanding," when a committee reporting on a study and survey that extended over more than a year, an- nounced that it recommended as a basis of future ~etion, a plan sug- gested to the committee by Dr. O'Hara the widespread est~ablish- ment of the Confraternity of Chris- tian Doctrine. In this discussion a paper prepared by Benedict Elder of Louisville. Ky., editor of The Record and ~president of the Catholic Press Association, was read by Father J. M. Campbell of, Ames, In. In classification Mr. Elder's paper said the subje:vt of religious mlsun. derstandings "falls into three main categories: First are misunderstand. ings of religion itself--of its origin, its nature, its end, its place or func- tion in human life and in human so- ciety; second, misunderstandings of revealed religion---of the authority, the unity, the immutability of the Word of God; third, misunderstand- ings of the Church, especially--of the that WOW and KOIL, two important corporate personality of the Church; local stations, have already offered the identity of the Church ~oday with ~heir facilities for several local broad- the Church yesterday; the sameness casts, including tim civic reception in of the church of the 20th century, the the Ak-Sar-Be, Coliseum and the pub- Church of the Middle Ages and the lic Eucharistic demonstrations in Church of the Apostles; the oneness l Creighton stadium. of the Church militant, the Church suffering and the Church trium- phant." Mr. Elder pointed out, too, that misunderstandings of the Church are not ,confined to non-Catholics, but that "Many Catholics are not only insufficiently informed as to the teaching and history of the Church but they also fail to understand and appreciate the corporate personality of the Church." Hostility Today Mental It cannot be over-emphasized, Mr. Elder continued, that the hostility Bishop Joseph F- Rummel an- t nounced at a meeting of laymen Mon- day night that word reaching Omaha from New York City, Chicago, Cleve- land, San Franciso and other cities~ indicated that the Omaha Congress would be the largest national con- gress ever held, only exceeded by the International Congress in Chicago in 1926. DEAN INGE SANCTIONS SUICIDE IN SOME CASES which the Church encounters today London, Aug. 25.--Dean Inge, not "is a mental hostility, highly cultivat- ~ to be outdone by the Bishops who tat the Lambeth Conference voted by ed."

EUCHARISTIC CONGRESS In his presidential address at the Modern Churchmen' Conference at )xford, after referring to the Lam- beth report, he said that another ira- I Omaha, Neb., 29.--The su- Aug. preme officers of the Knights of Co- !lumbus, headed by Martin H. Car- reedy, supreme knight, of Grand Rap- ids, Mich., will come to Omaha Sep- tember 23 to 25 to attend the sixth the Congress. The announcement was made on Tuesday by Francis P. Matthews, Omah'a attorney, who is active chair- man of the laymen's committee on he Congress. Matthews is a supreme director of the Knights of Columbus, and re- turned to Omaha Sunday frem the Supreme K. of C. convention at Bos- ton, Mass., where he said the Con- gress was attracting mu~h attention from delegates living in all parts of the country. The Knights of Columbus is the largest national organization of Cath- olic laymen, and it iu expected that thousands of members from all parts of the United States will attend the Congress. Val J. Peter, chairman of the Oma- ha Congress press committee, re- turned from Baltimore Monday, where he attended the national gathering of the Catholic Central Verein. A resolution was passed at this con- 7ention urging mon~bers to attend the Omaha Congress. The Rev. Edward Chapuran, pas- tor of St. Wenceslaus' church, re turned lo Omaha on Monday with a delegation from the Catholic Sokol convention at Baltimore, where he said the sentiment at the convention also indicated a large attendance at the Congress. The registration committee has designated the Knights of Columbus Club, the Diocesan Bureau, the Creighton gymnasium, and the Pax- ton, Fontenelle and Conanat hotels as official registration headquarters for the Congress. The radio committee, headed by J. A. Bennewitz, anounced that nego- tiations are under way for a national broadcast during the Congress and Frank W.
