For one week it will be in the store of the manufacturing jewel- ers and one week each in two of the largest department stores. After the Congress, October 17 to 20, it will become the property of St. Louis Cathedral. Worth $35,000, it is one of the most valuable church vessels ever made in the United States. Three and a half feet high and weighing 24 pounds, it is of solid' gold save for the two angels that hold the luna; the statues of the In- fant and Our Lady of Prompt Succor, patroness of New Orleans and Louisiana, holding on the shaft, and five additional statues. These are St. Louis IX, King of France and patron of the Arch- diocese of New Orleans, St. Fran- cis de Sales, representing the dio- cesan clergy who have served in Louisiana, and the founders of the three Orders that sent pioneer missionaries here--St. Francis of Assisi, St. Ignatius Loyola and St. Vincent de Paul. For the collection undertaken last winter by the Archdiocesan Council of Catholic Women came baby pins and rings, medals won by school girls and boys, spect- acle frames, valuable heirlooms, a Bishop's ring. Additional stones and additional platinum for set- ting them, and intricate workman- ship added greatly to the value.

The bands will be interspersed among the various units that will take part in the Eucharistic pr0cession that will precede BenedictiOn and will play accompaniments for hymns sung by the marchers, directed from a central station. A new type pipe organ, design- ed especially for outdoor use, will be used in the "Open-air Cathe- dral," as the City Park stadium will be known in connection with the Congress. One vocal unit will consist of all the men, women and children who will Sing hymns in the pro- cession and, with all the other units, will sing the "O Salutarts," "Tantum Ergo," the special Con- gress hymn and "Holy God" at the closing Benediction. The choir composed of approxi- mately 150 seminarians, Brothers and priests will sing the proper of the Mass on Tuesday, October 10, the official opening of the Congress. A chorus of 300 men will sing the ordinary. For Wednesday, Youth Day, this region have done through the ages in time of calamity, thousands of Catholics of Czechoslovakia vis- ited Prague .during the last week to seek the intercession of the Blessed Virgin, .praying before her miraculous image, the famed "Pal- ladium of Bohemia." The Palladium is a gold relief picture of the Blessed Virgin with the Divine Child, dates from 1400 and has witnessed' many great wars that were waged on Bo- hemia's territory. The Madonna's image has been the object of rev- erence on the part of Czechs, Slo- yak, Polish and other Slavic Cath- olics for many centuries. The fact that practically the whole Christian world has paid! respect to the famed religious treasure of Bohemia is demon- strated by entries in the memorial books kept by the Redemptorist Fathers at Stara Boleslav. These books contain signatures of Amer- :lean citizens, British subjects i Swedes, Norwegians, Frenchmen Hungarians, Italians, etc. Last week Prague celebrated the three hundredth anniversary of the return of Bohemia's Palla- dium. In the churches, press and radio Catholics were urged to seek Our Lady's intercession for a hap- py future of the country. His Eminence Karel Cardinal Kaspar, Archbishop of Prague is the sponsor of the national Marian observances. A train of automobiles with representatives of the Town Coun- cil of Prague and clergy conveyed the Palladium from the shrine at 15,000 school children are rehears- ing a Gregorian Mass, of which the proper will be sung by the liturgical choir. Thursday, Wo- men's Day, 1,000 lay'women and 800 nuns will sing. church in the Tyn in Prague. Thousands of Catholics lined both sides of the road along which the famed relic was transported. A touching scene happened in Prague on the square facing the Tyn Church.: On the selfsame spot where in the 30 Years' War foreign mercenaries hung up the Ma- donna's image, which was stolen and) desecrated, and where, in 1918, shortly after the formation of the Republic, an atheist mob pulled down a high stone column which supported the state of the Virgin; in 1938, thousands of Cath- olics knelt as Chancellor Antonin Borek-Dohalsky, Canon of the Prague Cathedral, raised the gold image so that the throng could see it. It was an imposing service of atonement for the two sacri- legious acts. Viscount Visits Church Viscount W.alter Runciman, staying here as Britain's mediator in the Sudeten difficulties, and .Lady Hilda Runciman, were other distinguished foreigners w h b showed their respect for Our Lady on the occasion. Lord and Lady Runciman were likewise deeply impressed by the scenes they saw in the Tyn Church. .The parish priest of Tyn told them the inter- esting history of the Palladium.

Capitol Ph. 6153 Cathedral Being Decorated For Congress New Orleans. ().--Portraits of the nine Archbishops of New Or- leans and their coat-of-arms have been added to the decorations of historic St. Louis Cathedral here m preparation for the Eighth Na- tional Eucharistic Congress, Oc- tober 17-20. A bronze tabernacle, replica of the one used in the International Eucharistic Congress at Manila, has been installed. Behind the main altar and rising to a mag- nificent gold crown is a drapery of red and white as a background for the Eucharistic Congress osten- sorium. Other additions include a Mexican mahogany communion rail. Among the paintings that for years have been part of the Ca- thedral is a huge one over the main altar under which are the words "S. Louis, Roi de France, Announce la 7 me Croisade." Clerics and members of the King Louis IX's family are on his right, warriors on his left. The nine Archbishops are: An- toine Blanc, Jean Marie Odin, C. M., Napoleon Joseph Perche, Francis Xavier Seray, Francis Janssens, Placid'e Louis Chapelle, James Hubert Blenk, S. M., John William Shaw, and the present Ordinary, Joseph Francis Rummel. The present cathedral was erect- ed at the time of the Spanish domi- nation, as a gift from Don A1- monastery Roxas, and was dedi- cated in 1794, but since the city was founded in 1713 the site had been used for divine services. The facade was altered in 1814, a tower was added and changes were made in 1824 and remodel- ing along the present lines was undertaken in 1849. In the Cathedral are buried six of the Archbishops---Archbishops Odin and Leray were buried in France--and Bishops de Neckere and John M. Laval. A MEDAL STORY (Continued from Page 6) How pretty the table was with lights and flowers and silver and :glass. The little girls wanted to clap their hands but they did not think that it was polite. "How pretty!" "I'm glad you like it." The servants pulled out the chairs for the little girls to sit down. Violette and Marie and Anne sat down, but Apolline watched the door. "Who is that little girl?" she asked. She walked over to the door. There had been a little girl in the doorway, but now she had run away. Dickens' Relative, Catholic, Makes Movie Debut Los Angeles. .A lineal des- cendent of Charles Dickens, and member of that branch of his fam- ily which has become Catholic, is making her debut in Hollywood this season. She is Miss Jennifer Downing, aged 0, who will ap- pear shortly in "The Young of Heart," in which Janet Gaynor and other stars are to be featured by the Selznick studios. Miss Downing, who appeared in English stage preductions and. in radio programs before coming here this year, is the daughter of Ter- ence and Arleen Downing, both English stage artists, now resident in Santa Monies. Descent comes from the Dickens family through her mother, the former Aileen Hawksley, whose grandmother, Marie Roche, a Catholic, was mar- ried to Sir Henry Fleldlngs Dick- ens, English magistrate and son of the great novelist. Miss Jennifer, the great-great grand daughter of the novelist was baptized at the Brompton Oratory and attended the school conduct- ed by the Madames of the Sacred Heart in Ear1's Court, London.
