"I am glad to note that you are also concerned with our in- stitutions for social welfare and education which are so dependent upon being stimulated by the re- ligous motive," the President's let- ter continues. "Your subject for the Stewardship C o n v e n t i o n, 'Stewardship in a Democracy,' is most significant. Governmeatal measures, taxation and other means for social security and wel- fare, can never take the place of brotherhood and philanthropy. In- deed the same underlying motives are needed by both our govern- ment and our free voluntary in- stitutions, for the fullest coopera- tion between the state and our free institutions, all seeking the highest good of the people. "To this end, your call to stewardship of life, service and possessions, if heeded, would solve the most pressing problems of our national life." The National Stewardship Con- vention will be held in Chicago November 1-3 under the auspices of the Committee for Religion and Welfare Recovery in asso- ciation with church, charity, edu- cational, character-building, medi- cal and welfare institutions and agencies. The National Committee is com- posedof more than 500 Catholics Protestants and Jews, including 75 Bishops, 65 pastors, priests and rabbis, 179 college presidents and other educators, 147 officers of church and benevolent boards and more than 100 leading laymen. U. S. to Send Spain Wheat, Famine Near Washington. 0O.NThe American Red Cross, assisted by agents of the American Friends Service Committee, will undertake the im- partial distribution throughout the Spanish Peninsula of flour milled from the United States Govern- ment wheat, it has been announc- ed here by the State Department. Up to 250,000 bushels of wheat are to be involved in the pro- ject. The State Department announce- ment says information received during the last few months from Spain "indicates the existence of a growing problem in human mis- ery which, unless remedied, will result in widespread starvation and loss of life among women and children this winter." "The main cause of the emergency, apart from the natural destruction of war," it is said, "is the existence of a vast army of refugees, esti- mated at nearly three million peo- ple, who have been driven from their homes and sought refuge on one side or the other of the battle line. There is insufficient housing, clothing and food for these refugees." Declaring that "the problem is beyond the resources of organi- zations created in America and abroad to raise funds for relief in Spain," the statement says: "Faced by such a situation the American people cannot remain indifferent. The Government it- self cannot organize or dispense relief abroad, but the American Red Cross, in view of the emer- gency conditions prevailing, has; i volunteered to handle for distri- bution a large quantity of flour to be processed in the United States from surplus wheat to be turned over to the Red Cross by the Federal Surplus Commodities Corporation. The Red Cross has arranged that the impartial dis- tribution of this flour shall begin in October throughout the Span- ish Peninsula, according to with the actual distribution in the hands of agents of the American Friends Service Committee. Co- operation of Government agencies and the Friends will make it pos- sible to expedite the plan for get- tint relief without delay to the refugees." The Red Cross will announce details of the project,.it is said. Mass Is Said For Spanish War Victims Mexico City. {EL--The Spanish Colony of the Capital organized and attended a Solemn Requiem Mass in the Church of Santo Do- mingo for the souls of all Spani- ards who have died fighting on i either side of the civil war. This service for the dead', which was well attended, was the only ".ommemoration of the feast of Santa Maria de Covandonga, Patroness of Asturias. L i , . i Clara Mallin of Milwaukee, an "$" student at Marquette University in that city, has one of the most unusual combinations of employ- ment. Miss Mallin, who enrolled at Marquette last February, divides her spare time between inscribing tombstones and tutoring college algebra. She became a professional tombstone carver at the age of 14. i i ! i Catholic Hi P.-T. A. Holds First Meeting Little Rock.--The Catholic High P.-T. A. held its first meeting for the year at the high school on Monday, September 26. Father .Yaeger opened the meeting with prayer and Mrs. G. Sutton, presi- dent, presided. Father O'Connell, the principal of the Catholic High school, gave a talk to the ladies encouraging them in their work and assuring his help. Father Yaeger also thanked the ladies for their aid in the past years. It was decided to have the next meeting at the school at noon on October 10, at which there will be a pot luck luncheon served by the ladies. Between now and the October meeting the ladies will conduct a vigorous campaign to enroll all the parents of the chil- dren as active'metal)era of the as- sociation. Their work is indis- 3ensable to the school and the parents having boys at the Cath- olic High should feel an obligation of taking an active interest in the P.-T. A. Mrs. J. C. Hodges was appointed corresponding secretary to fill the vacancy caused by the resigna- tion of Mrs. Frank Borden. Father O'Connell closed the meeting with .prayer. Czechs To Create Three New Orders Prague. 0O.The Prague Gov- ernment is about to create three new orders of merit, one of which to be called "Order of the Saint Wenceslaus' Crown," is to com- memorate the national patron Saint and martyr, St. Wenceslaus, evangelizer of the Czechs. i The so-called "Crown of Saint Wenceslaus" is a gold crown, set with jewels, dating from the four- teenth century. It is kept in the treasury of St. Vitus' Cathedral in Prague. The crown was named for St. Wenceslaus by Charles IV, Em- peror of the "Holy Roman Em- pire," who was also a crowned king of Bohemia. Charles IV or- dered the crown to be set on the head of the statue of St. Wen- ceslaus in the Prague Cathedral. Czechoslovakia has had but one order of merit hitherto, namely ,the Order of the White Lion (the lion being in the former Kingdom of Bohemia's coat-of-arms) which was conferred upon foreigners who distinguished themselves in the service to the Republic. The other new orders are the Order of the Czechoslovak Star and the Order of Liberty. Study Club At Pocahontas Has Meeting Pocahontas.The regular meet- ing of the study club was held at the home of Mrs. Swan Best on Thursday evening, September 22. An interesting reading on "The Church is Apostolic," was given by Mrs. Gilford James, and in the discussion which followed Ray. Father Janesko very capably an- swered the questions brought up. An added feature in the study club is the "Question Box," which is expected to be very beneficial. At the close of the meeting de- licious refreshments were served by the hostess. The next meeting will be in Oc- tober at the home of Mrs. Andrew Jansen. ii I i i i 'Internationalism' Of Mexico Receives Praise of American Mexico City. (E).  A decided trend away from the aims of Ma- dero and Carranza and toward "internationalism," was noted by the Ray. D. Samuel Guy Inman in a radio address broadcast here under the auspices of the Mexican Government. "I have noticed that nationalism seems to be dying out and in its stead there is growing a move- ment favorable to international cooperation and to me, as a friend of Mexico, this is reason for re- joicing," said Dr. Inman. Dr. Inman is Executive Secre- tary of the Committee on Coop- eration in Latin America, an inter- denominational group formed in Panama in 1915 at a conference of non:Catholic missionary so- cieties which divided Latin Amer- ma into zones and placed each zone in charge of a particular so- ciety. Dr. Inman's address, which was broadcast to American listeners, emphasized the beauties and in- !teresting aspect Mexico has for tourists, saying the visitor to this country can find anything he wants. He said the Mexican peo- ple now have a social program so strong it is able openly to con- dernn the malignant influences found in every reform movement. 'My friends who are listening to me in the radio audience," he said, "permit me to insist with you that you should visit Mexico and that you should cooperate with this beautiful country and with those Mexicans who are en- gaged in social reforms." Late Marrlages Seen As Menace to Ireland Dublin. 00.--A great deal of thought and discussion was devot- ed to the question of late marriages and consequent low birth-rate in Ireland during the lectures at Ard- more conducted by Muintir Na Tire in its Rural Week's delibera- tions. Archdeacon Kelleher, of Water- ford, listed some of the factors at- tributable to the decline of the population; high cost of living; ex- pense of establishing homes; disin- clination of girl wage earners to give up their careers unless as- sured of as secure an existence when married. The Rev. J. M. Hayes, chairman of Muintir Na Tire, said that the low marriage rate is one of the greatest social evils and that everything possible should be done to encourage early marriages. Mrs. T. Kettle a former member of the i Civil Service Commission said many who had given evidence had been very much opposed to the system of the family allowance on the ground that it was neither adequate nor fair. The income tax system of rebates for dependents, she said, was much fairer. Ursullnes Open New College h Louisville Louisville, Ky.

FEASTS OF THE WEEK (Continued from Page 4) at Monte Cassino. When scarcely 21 he was sent to Sicily to es- tablish a monastery. Five years later the place was overrun by the barbarians who burned every- thing to the ground.

THURSDAY, October 6.---Saint Bruno was born at Cologne about the year 1030 and cultivated his rare natural gifts at Paris. He was made canon of Cologne and' later accorded the same dignity at Rheims. Resolving to forsake the world he and six companions applied to Hugh, Bishop of Gre- noble, who directed them into a wild solitude called the Chartre- use. There they lived in poverty, self-denial and silence, meeting only for the worship of God. Bru- no was called to Rome by Pope Urban II, but the distractions of the great city disturbed him and he sought permission to resume his monastic life in Calabria. There he lived in humility and self- denial until his death in 1101. FRIDAY, October 7.St. Mark, Pope, was a Roman by birth. He succeeded St. Sylvester in the Apostolic Chair in 336. After a reign of only eight months and 20 days he died and was buried in a cemetery in the Ardeatine Way. The" cemetery has since borne his name. SATURDAY, October 8.
