"PAGE EIGHT THE GUARDIAN, SEPTEMBER 23, 1938 Press Congress to Hear Many Noted Speakers Milwaukee 0D---Catholic Educa- I tional Press Congress for Catholic[ students and teachers interested I in a study of the press and its I significance in the world today will be held here October 15 and 16 under the sponsorship of the Catholic School Press Association Bishop Lauds Irish Support Of Missions Dublin. (E).--The growing in- crease in the support of the For- eign Missions by the Irish people received warm appreciation in a sermon preached by the Most Rev. Charles Heerey, C. S. Sp., Vicar Apostolic of Southern Ni- geria, in St. Patrick's Cathedral, Cavan, in the presence of the Most Rev. Patrick Lyons, Bishop of Kilmore. "Blessed are the eyes that see the things that you see," wa Bishop Heerey's text and he ap- plied it to himself as coming from a pagan country nd watching the large crowds in Ireland on .their way to Mass, reflecting on the masses in pagan lands who "had not seen." Comparing the spiritual state of Ireland with that of many of the peoples of Europe, he said' they were not only practicing Catho- lics themselves but they were con- tributing to the spread of the Gos- pel in other lands. One of the greatest consolations they had on the missions was the knowledge of the sympathy and help they got from their people at home he said. The missionary societies, both men and women, are receiving numerous missionary vocations and the Irish people at home are helping those on the missions both materially and by their pray- ers, the Bishop said. It was his privilege, he said, to be appoint- ed-.head of a people that were God's poorest, but were not re- ceiving God's choicest blessings. Last year in a district half the size of Ireland, there were 34,- 000 conversions. In his missions altogethc T there are 3,000,000 people and of these 2,750,000 are still pagan. He has for the con- version of these, 50 Irish priests and a number of Irish Sisters, all trained in this diocese in the Holy Rosary Convent, Killes- handra. As a Kilmore man, he said, he is very proud of these Sisters who have the best schools in the country and hospitals that are the admiration of every one, even the Government officials. He quoted a Director of Medical Serv- ices and an Ulster Presbyterian, visiting the hospitals on one oc- casion, as saying: "The Roman Catholic Sisters do the impossible everywhere. I have seen it in In- dia, and I see it now here." Seminarian Writing i'Father Tim' Biography St. Louis. ).--A biography of the late Monsignor Timothy Demp- seT, widely known for the many charitable institutions he estab- lished and affectionately called "Father Tim," is being written by Harold J. McAuliffe, S. J, a seminarian of St. Louis Univer- sity. His 38 years of service to the needy, his tactful mediation of industrial disputes and his ac- tivity as peace-maker in gang troubles gained national promi- nence for Father Tim. Among his charities were his Day Nursery, White Cross Crusade for the un- dernourished, Hotels for Men, Hotels for Women, Free Lueh Room and "The Exiles' ReSt," a burial plot for the poor. Father Tim's biographer is eking letters, photographs and other pertinent material. What Do You Know? ANSWBRS I. Pro-Cathedral. 2.

Mother Cabrini's Relic Sent To Vatican New York (E)--The formal iden- tification of the body of Mother Francis Xavier Cabrini, Foundress of the Institute of Missionary Sis- ters of the Sacred' Heart of Jesus, took place here Tuesday. It was I another step toward her beatifica- and the final one to be taken i tion, in this country. The beatification of Mother Cabrini is to take place in Sainl Peter's Basilica in Vatican City, Sunday, November 13. The identification was made in the presence of the Most Rev: Stephen J. Donahue, Administra- tor of the Archdiocese of New York, and of the members of a Papal commission sent to this l country for that purpose. Also present were some 500 students of Mother Cabrini High school, i Washington Heights, where the re- mains of the saintly foundress re- pose in a vault beneath the chapel's sanctuary. Directing the ceremony of iden- tification was Msgr. Salvatore Na-: tucci, Procurator General of the Pontifical Society for the Propaga- tion of the Faith, and head of the Vatican delegation. Also present! was the Most Rev. Pietro Calchil Novati, Bishop of Lodi, who bore ! a letter from His Holiness Pope! Pius XI authorizing him to bring back to the Vatican a relic of the Venerable Mother Cabrini. Msgr. J. Francis A. McIntyre, Chancellor of the Archdiocese of New York, also took part in the ceremonies. When the last of the faithful had filed past the coffin, the pre- lates present signed the certifi- cation of recogni(ion which had previously been signed by other witnesses, Including four doctors, declaring the body to be that of Mother Cabrini. One copy of the scroll was placed in a silver tube and laid inside the coffin. A sec- ond scroll will be carried to the Vatican by Monsignor Natucei and presented to the Holy Father. A glass lid--so heavy that it re- quired 16 men to carry it--was then placed on the coffin and sealed by Monsignor Natucei. The coffin is never to be opened again, i Mother Cabrini, who was born in Italy but became an American citizen, died in Chicago in 1917. Her body was brought to New York and interred in a burial plot at Sacred Heart Orphanage at West Park. Five years ago it was moved to its permanent rest- ing place. Among the members of the Pa- pal commission were Msgr. Enrico Rizzi, pastor of the parish at St. Angelo, where Mother Cabrini was born, and the Rev. Pietro Savol- delli, of Codogno, where she founded her Order.

(EL--Praise such as the Eternal City seldom sees accord- ed to a painter, even of mature years, has been given to an Amer- i ican Catholic--Matthew William Boyhan, a young Fellow of the American Academy of Fine Arts here. The occasion was /the. annual exhibition of the American Acad- emy, in the course of which fres- coes painted by Mr. Boyhan came to the attention of the Roman critics. At the invitation of the Academy authorities, Mr. Boyhan had executed the frescoes on the walls of the main cortile of the Academy. He chose for his theme the contributions of Rome to America, and the manner in which America has carried out these les- sons in characteristic fields. The figures of SS. Peter and Paul dominate the picture. On one side the arts and sciences of Rome Ire represented by appropriately significant figures, while on the other side are represented Ameri- ca's gifts to the world. The comment of M'essagero, leading morning newspaper of Rome, is typical of the enthusiasm of the Eternal City for the work of this 22-year-old artist, a native of Virginia, who has spent most of his life in Newton Center Mass., where he is a member of Sacred Heart parish. Messagero says Mr. Boyhan is "one of the painters whose work stands out"; that he "has had solid preparatiori both in design and painting," and that his composi- tion of subjects of vast dimen- sion "reveals eminent qualities of arrangement developed with beau- tiful harmony of colors." Before winning the coveted Prix de Rome, Mr. Boyhan studied at the Boston Museum School. Terror Reigns As Lion Enters During Mass Amsterdam. 00High Mass was being celebrated in St. Mi- chael's church at Sittard, in Limburg, when a lion, escap- ed from a circus erected on the market square in front of the church, strolled down the center aisle. Great confusion was caused as the animal proceeded to- ward the altar and entered the sanctuary. Some of the con- gregation took refuge in con- fessionals and windows. The Mass was interrupted and the celebrant, assistant priests and acolytes fled to the sacristy. Two citizens, armed with guns, were about to shoot the lion when the circus manager and helpers appeared and suc- ceeded in capturing it. Those who Were able to es- cape by the church door faced a new problem. A Second escaped lion was strolling up and down the street Just out- side. It also finally was re- captured.

Honors Priest Who Baptized Cardinal Newman London. ().--The first pilgrim- age to the recently-discovered death scene of the Venerable Fa- ther Dominic, Italian Passionist who received Cardinal Newman into the Church, was made when two buses carried Londoners to the Duke of Edinburgh Hotel, Reading, 36 miles from here. For years it was believed that Father Dominic died at a rail- road station at Reading, but re- search by the Rev. Robert E. Scantlebury, Reading's pastor, re- vealed the death sceaae. The Reading Mercury of Sep- tember 1, 1849, chronicled Fa- ther Dominic's collapse while travelling on a train and stated that he was carried to the Rail- way Tavern, where he died. The raihvay tavern at Reading today is a recent building. Then Father Seantlebury dis- covered that the railroad station was located in a different part of town and found that the nearest inn to the former site was the Duke of Edinburgh. After a letter from the priest, the brewers looked up their re- cords and found that the hotel was formerly the railway tavern. Although the hotel is now mod- ernized, the old guest rooms still retain their original walls. On the same day, a day after the eighty-ninth anniversary of Father Dominic's death, 10,000 made a pilgrimage to his tomb at St. Anne's Retreat, Sutton, Lanca- shire. They knelt by the tomb and re- cited the Rosary, afterward laying petitions there. The cause of Father Dominic is before the Sacred Congregation of Rites and prayers for its early recognition are being recited in all Passionist houses. The saintly priest came to Eng- land in 1840 to help in the con- version of the country. He died nine years later. Pope Plus X declared him Ven- erable in 1911. Father Dominic's remains were exhumed at Sutton in 1936 for the canonical recognition and afterward reburied. Protest Funds For Reds Sought In Labor Dept. Washington. (E).--As there be- gan to pour into the Capital from various parts of the country pro- tests against the attempts to co- erce Government employes to con- tribute to the aid of Leftist Spain, it was announced by the office of Secretary of Labor Frances Perkins that the objectionable ac- tion had been taken in her De- partment "without her knowledge or her consent." In the Labor Department, there was placed on the desks of em- ploycs on pay day a circular tell- ing the workers of "the impera- tive need for aiding Republican Spain," and calling upon them to do so. Couched in the most urgent terms and signed by some of the highest officials in the department, this circular put workers in the position of contributing or court- ing the displeasure of those under whom they work. At the same time, the Bulletin of the Wash- ington Friends of Spanish Democ- racy boasted this was not the only Government agency in which the Leftist cause was being so vigor- ously pushed, and proceeded to name a half-score Government es- tablishments where contributions for Leftist Spain are being col- lected. Protests have been made to President Roosevelt against this situation. Secretary Perkins could not be reached today. The Detroit Council of Catholic Organizations has urgently re- quested President Roosevelt to "in- vestigate whether any officials of Government Departments know- ingly supported such appeals for funds and, if so, take appropriate measures' to stop such solicitation in Federal Departments for an alien and Communistic regime." The Council states that appeals for Leftist Spain such as have been revealed by the N. C. W. C. News Service "if supported by of- ficials in any Department, are tan- tamount to coercing Federal em- ployes to contribute to the sup- port of the Spanish Leftist regime, backed by Soviet Russia gnd waging war on democraoy." "Such aid of an alien govern- ment is in direct violation of {he neutrality laws of our country and diametrically opposed to American principles of liberty," the Council also states. The Detroit Council of the Knights of Columbus telegraphed to Secretary of Labor Perkins, di- recting her attention to the N. C. W. C. News Service dispatch ou of Washington, and adding: "If these charges are true some. one in your Department is subject to severe censure for what is obviously a bold attempt to coerce tederal employes." Cardinal Tells True Story Of Book Controversy London. (L'). -- Communications which have appeared in the sec- ular press as a result of pre- mature publication of news con- cerning the Holy Office and Al- fred Noyes in the matter of his book "Voltaire" have brought a letter from His Eminence Arthur Cardinal Hinsley, Archbishop of Westminister, to The Universe, lo- cal Catholic newspaper. After the premature publica- tions had appeared, Cardinal Hins- lay addressed a brief letter to The Times, pointing out that there had been no condemnation of the book but merely a question of some emendments, which would be the subject of discussion later be- tween the author and himself. Telling of the subsequent inter- view in his communication to The Universe, the Cardinal said: "In the interview with Mr. Noyes, the Cardinal stated that the authority of the Holy Office must be upheld. This, of course, could and would be done with perfect justice and fairness to the author. The Cardinal remarked that the rule of censorship was after all a common sense principle, because in regard to any society--e, g., the Law Society or the Automobile Society--if or when any member published matter contrary" to the aims or rules of the society he would be called to order. The Cardinal then declared that the. Holy See required that the book be submitted to a Westminster Board of Censorship. This Mr. Noyes accepted gladly, and stated that throughout he had expressed his willingness to make any cor- rections of errors that might be pointed out by the legitimate au- thorities. "The Cardinal said that he had already chosen three commission- ers for the examination." At this point, the Cardinal': statement said, the author an- nounced that the book had been taken out of the hands of the original publishers and transfer- red to a "neutral" publishing firm. The Cardinal pointed out that this action might be misunderstood by the Holy Office as a challenge :of its authority, unless explana- tion were made. As far as he could see, the Car- dinal advised Mr. Noyes, there was not much in the book againsI faith and morals, though some sentences he had read in it would surely require rewriting. "As 1o historical matter," the Cardinal's statement said, "the complex nature of Voltaire had been exaggerated on one side, and the Bishops and clergy of the French of the period had been un- duly blackened." The Cardinal's statement con- cluded with the information that Mr. Noyes had left himself un- der the impression that the au- thor had agreed about this two- fold exaggeration and intended to state as much in the new issue of the book. The interview closed, the statement said, with the Car- dinal saying he was speaking not so much as an official but as a friend who wanted to help. Note Fifth Centenary Of Convent in Belgium Father Schulte, Arctic Flyer, Visits Boston Boston. ().--Completing an air jaunt of 15,000 miles, the Rev. Paul Schulte, O. M. I., the "Fly- ing Missionary," dropped his sea- plane, "The St. Luke," into the East Boston airport yesterday for a visit with friends among the Boston Archdiocese clergy, before starting on a four-month lecture tour of the United States. With Father Schulte were the Rev. Charles F. Barry, O. M. I., Superior of the Oblate Fathers' summer house at Essex, N. Y., who boarded the plane on Lake Cham- plain, and Fred Lang, 22-year-old son of the late Anton Lang, famous "Christus" of the Oberammergau Passion Play, an associate in the Missionary International Vehicu- lar Association, who was picked up en route. In 140 hours the "Flying Padre" had flown from Arctic City, 600 miles north of the Arctic Circle carrying supplies and mail to re- mote settlements and missions. Part of this mileage was devoted to reaching the seriously ill Fa- ther Julian Cochard, O. M. I., at Arctic City and transporting him under great difficulties and haz- ards to Chesterfield Inlet for hos- )italization. Since the World War, in which m distinguished himself as a member of the German Air Corps, Fathcr Schulte has organized and developed the Missionary Inter- national Vehicular Association to serve remote missions in isolated parts of the world. "The St. Luke" is one of the 12 planes now oper- ated by the association, each being named for an Apostle. Many of the air-missionary's flights have been mercy errands over frozen Arctic wastes and steaming tropi- cal jungles to bring food or medi- cal aid to stricken outposts. Father Schulte was greeted up- on arrival at the airport by a group of the Boston clergy, in- cluding the Rt. Rev. Msgr. Mi- chael J.
