The bride will have Miss out family memberships. Pamphlets explaining the activities, needs and advantages of the Catholic Club were distributed in all the churches Sun- day, and, judging from the informa- tion we have been able to get, the campaign will assuredly go over the ~top. Mr. H. B..Moriarity is chairman and he has urged all workers to make daily reports where possible. The parish quotas are as fellows: St. Peters 48, St. Mary's 53, St. Brigid's 69, Blessed Sacrament 100, Sacred Heart 250, Immaculate Conception 160, St. Thomas' 94, Little Flower L27, St. Joseph's 25 and St. Patrick's 65. The newly established family mem. bership is sure to prove popular. Un. der this arrangement children under 16 become members if both parents take full memberships. These cost only $12 a year for each. Contained in the pamphlet are 16 good reasons why every Catholic should be a member of the club, and we feel sure that when this drive closes the membership will be great- ly increased. and Ruth Thomas were joint host- esses of a bridge party, followed by informal dancing. On Tuesday eve- ning Miss Elizabeth Aeschliman com- plimented Miss Roth and her fiance with a bridge party and a shower. Following the rehearsal at the church Wednesday evening, Mrs. Roth, moth- er of the bride-elect will entertain the members of the bridal party, rel- atives and a few close friends with a buffet supper. Miss Lauriene Baker, whose en- gagement to Mr. Matthias P. Kalla- her was recently announced, is be- ing honored almost daily with a se- ries of luncheons, showers, teas and evenings of bridge.

Most of their time was spent at the historic Juan Capistiano Mission, near Los Angeles. Their two daug.h- ters, Misses Vivian and Ligeia, will return later in the week after spend- ing the summer with their grand- mother in Louisville, Ky. Mrs. Hazel Mangan of 36 South Cox street, and daughter, Miss Fran- ces, are enjoying a cruise on the Mediterranean Sea. Mrs. Mary T.

Here's to the success of the drive. The many friends of Miss Annie Mac Burke will be delighted to learn that she is ~mproving steadily after the recent operation she underwent at St. Joseph's Hospital. She is now able to receive her friends, and for the present is staying with Mrs. Wil- liam McDowell, in her home at 583 Beale Avenue. Among the young folks who slipped away to enjoy a week-end were Messrs. William MrcDowell, Jr. and his cousin, John Haggerty. Judging from~the accounts they give of their brief visit, they sure had a glorious time in Lit- tle Rock. i Cong~.atulations are being show- ered on Mr. and Mrs. Edward L. Sey- mour, Jr., of 2532 School Street, on the arrival of a handsome baby boy wha registered with his mother at a local hospital on Aug. 29. Both moth- er and son are doing splendidly and are counting the days when they will be at home to their friends. The young gentleman will bear the name of Edward Louis Seymour III. Mr. and Mrs. E. L. Seymour of North Avalon Street, accompanied by their charming daughter, Marion, have returned from a visit with rel- atives and friends in Chicago. The continued improvement in R'~v. Father Hayes' health is a source of the greatest pleasure not to the mem- bers of his parish, but to his hun- dreds of friends in our city. As all our readers no doubt know, Father Hayes is pastor of St. Patrick's Church; he has been critically ill and his return to health, while slow, has been steady, we are glad to state that he is now able to assume charge of his duties as pastor. DEATH The death of Mr. Quinn O'Grady, son of Mrs. Cello O'Grady Thompson, came as a distinct shock to his many friends. The funeral was held from the Spencer-Sturia Funeral Home, with a Requiem High Mass at Sacred Heart Church, wibh Rev. Father Louis 3. Kemphues offi,ciating. Besides his mother, Mr. O'Grady is survived by one brother, Jack. The pallbearers were Messrs. Buck Bowers, Go~don Clark, Wilson Bar. ton, Gerald Fay, Tommy Clark, Maury and Gerald Wade, all of Memphis; Bill Wilder of Lutu, Miss; Louis Har- ris, Jack Lowe, William Warfield and Russell Lowe of Tunics, Miss.

The marriage of Miss Hiltrude Mrs. Philip Brennan, of Brooklyn, Chosen President-- Spread of Knowledge of Church Neces- sary, Alumnae Told. By Katharine McKiever, (Special Correspondent, N. C. W. C. News Service. Washington, Aug. 28.--Headed by Philip A. Brennan of Brooklyn, a large delegation of the International Federation of Catholic Alumnae ar- rived in Washington this morning, coming by bus from Emmitsburg, Md., where their ninth biennial con- 'vention has been in session. The goal of the Washington visit was the "Mary Memorial Altar," in the Na- t'Ional Shrine of the Immaculate Con- ception, erected through the co-opera- tion of the Federation. Afterward the group attended a luncheon at the Mayflower hotel and motored to Mr. Vernon in the afternoon. The spirit of Mother Seton, pioneer in the Catholic education of American women, permeated this convention just held at St. Joseph's College, motherhouse of the Sisters of Char- ity of St. Vincent de Paul and the religious home of Mother Seton. On Sunday evening a long procession wended its way from the college chapel across the-campus, past the tomb of Mother Seton in the commu- nity cemetery, to the beautifuI shrine erected in her honor. Followin~ the acolytes came the officers of the J. F. C A., then a cortege of severa~ hundred religious in the various hab its of their orders, and about 600 lay -nembers of the organization and ~uests. Each carried a lighted taper Before the Benediction service af ~he shrine, the Roy. Joseph B. Code author of a recent biography of Eliza- beth Seton, delivered a ~ermon in pilot, and five seamen. Gales drove the shrine of St. Francis 'the vessel through the Straits of Rev. Constantine Burn.s, ~' .Mackinac and was last seen at that lode, Ohio, the Maryknoll point. La Salle, still selling his route to the Mississippi, never located the vessel again. Several expeditions have searched for the wreck of the pioneer mer- chantman of the Great Lakes, but the examination of a number of hulks has never; disclosed sufficient evidence to establish the identity of the Griffin.
