Profuse Flower Decorations In New Orleans New Orleans. (EL--Flowers in the white and gold of the Papacy and flags of the four countries un- der whose domination New Or- leans has been since it wQs found- ed 220 years ago will:form a colorful background for the 8th National Eucharistic Congress here October 17-20. This will be the first Eucha- ristic Congress in the United States for which flowers have been chosen for the principal dec- oration, the Rev. George J. Mc- Namara, C. S. C., Chairman of Decorations, said. For three days when Pontifical Mass will be celebrated at the stadium in City Park, the "open air cathedral" of the Congress, a different flower scheme will be used each day. Approximately 1,200 blooms will be banked on the platform of the altar, against a background of shrubbery. As the altar will be the simple liturgi- cal table, no flowers may be used on .it On Tuesday, October 18, when His Eminence George Cardinal Mundelein, Archbishop of Chica- go, will celebrate Pontifical Mass as the Papal Legate, bronze, white and yellow chrysanthemums will be used. At the Children's Mass the following day there will be used white calla lilies and yel- low calla lilies which are being grown especially for the occa- sion. Thursday, at the Women's Mass, yellow and white roses will be used. There will be a Holy Hour for men from 11 p. m. to midnight, Wednesday, followed by Mass, at which the decorations will be' largely in lighting effects. Yellow and white flowers will be used each day on the 100 altars that will be erected' in the "Hall of Altars" at the Municipal Audi* torlum and on the 40 altars that will be erected in the Roosevelt Hotel, where reservations have been made for Archbishops, Bish- ops and other members of the clergy. It has been recommended to the pastors of the more than 50 churches in New Orleans and suburbs that in addition to deco- rating the interior and exterior of their churches with banners that they use yellow and white flowers on the altars for the dura- tion of the Congress. Over the entrance of St. Louis Cathedral, on the site of the ware- house which on Sundays and Holy Days served as the parish church in the earliest days of New Or- leans, will be a large scenic mon- strance, on each sid'e of which will be an angel and a group of flags. The liturgical reception of the Papal Legate will be held in the l Cathedral. The 35 miles of the Floral Trail have been planted in white and yellow flowers which will have for a background grass, the leaves of the azalea plants, and of vari- ous shrubs. Householders have planted seeds so that their yards will bear yellow and white blooms in time for the Congress and special attention in planting has been given to Beauregard Square. This is in front of the Municipal Auditorium where the municipal reception to Cardinal Mundelein will be held and where sectional meetings will be held. Over the business part of Canal street, which leads to City Park, will be elaborate decorations placed by business houses as well as by the Congress committee. On the facades of the business houses will be chalices, mon- strances, altars and various sym- bolical devices, many of them out- lined in colored electric lights. There will be 6,000 pounds of cloth in the 2,000 flags and the additional pennants and streamers that will be used in the street decorations. Among the flags will be that of the French monarchy, when the vast area of Louisiana, extending from the Great Lakes to the Gulf of Mexico was claim- ed in the name of Louis XIV. Next in historical order the red and gold flag of Spain, the Stars and Stripes, which the Louisiana Purchase brought to the city in 1803, the Stars and Bars, the bat- tle flag of the Confederacy. In addition, there will be the flag of Louisiana and the flag of the City of New Orleans. There also will be the Papal flag and pennants bearing the official emblem of the Congress in many colors. Three medieval shields, for wo- men, men and children, will be used to destignate the places of assembly for each parish for the Eucharistic procession, which, it is estimated, will be three miles long. 325,h Anniversary Of Statue Erection Antwerp. 00.rain the center of this city there is a section known as the "Zwanengang," its popu-' lation belonging to the working class, which has just celebrated the 325th anniversary of the bring- ing of a statue of Our Lady into its midst.
