CARDINAL GIBBONS RECEIVES DELEGATES FROM GERMAN CLERGY (By N. C. W. C. News Service.) Baltimore, Oct. 5.--Cardinal Gib- bons yesterday received a delegation of four prominent German priests, representatives of St. Boniface So- ciety, who have arrived in the United States for the purpose of appealing for aid in behalf of the starving chil- dren of Germany. They, are the Rev. F. Schlatter, Rev. H. J. Brunning of the diocese of Richmond, Va.; Rev. Dr. Weinand and the Rev. F. Weinhold. Father Bruning, the spokesman of the party, explained the mission of the delegation here. His Eminence stated that he had read, at the meet- ing of the hierarchy in Washington last week, a letter of Cardinal Bert- ram and the other German bishops in Fulda, setting forth the great distress in their country. "I myself," continued the Cardinal, "am in deep sympathy with the suffer- ing children of Germany and th' dire needs of the poor priests and have taken the needed action in forming a committee of bishops Consisting of the Ar@bishops of Milwaukee and Chi- cago and the Bishop of Rockford, urging all the bishops of the country to make a general appeal to the whole country in behalf of the poor suf- ferers. "I admire the German Catholic ele- ment in this country. Although as loyal Americans we had So fight the German govermnent, we never had any ill feeling against the German people. The German Catholics have always been a loyal and conservative element of the Church in America, especiall# in enthusiastically estab- lishing everywhere Catholic schools, putting the building of their schools before the building of their churches. Primum scholae deinde ecclesiae. "We have, of, course, properly speaking, no German Catholics, no Polish Catholics, no English Catholics in this country. We are all American Catholics. But we are all indebted to the German element for their great services which they have rendered to our Catholic Church in America. Therefore, as far as I am concerned, I will do all in my power to aid the great cause for which your commis4 aien has come to this country. Not only will you ha,I'e permission to ap- peal in my diocee--I will contribute personally to the noble work." Cardinal Gibbons requested that the delegation first take care of the poor 'suffering priests who had already ap- pealed to him and who seemed to have elicited the warmest sympathy'from him, Upon their departure the Cardina bestowed his blessing on the four delegates. CATHOLIC WRITERS " SUCCESSFUL SCENARIO -7"--''- (By N. C. W. C. News Service.) Indianapolis, Ind., Oct. 2.--Hal Reid, the Catholic scenario writer, is author of the gripping motion picture "For the Freedom of Ireland," which has been drawing crowded houses here during the past week. The p!c- ture is vivid with incidents of Ire- land's struggle for freedom and por- trays the operations of the British military and ourt martial proceed- ings. One of the striking features is the escape of President Eamon de Valera from prison and scenes of his reception in this country. Crowded houses attested to thepopularity of the film. OUR MOT'rOt "THE GUARDIAN IN EVERY HOME I" Father Flannery, Associate Editor of The Guardian, Presents More In- teresting Impressions of Europe as He Sees It. Italy and K. of C. Editor of Guardian: i Everywhere in France the people accorded spontaneous and joyous wen come to the traveling Knights. In the beginning if there seemed some tend- ency on the part of public officials to be chary of association with this dele- gation from across the seas, that at- titude was changed entirely as time went on. Just before these lines were written, the Knights were received formally at the City Hall of Paris and .tonight a banquet is being tendered at which many notable politicians are to be speakers. What wrought the above the average height of the .resi- dents of thecontry, walked with dig- nified tread across the Court of Dam- sus to whose echoes had sounded the foot-beats of illustrious visitors down through the centuries. Representa- tives of the Noble Guard headed the procession as the Throne Room was approached. In the outer quarters were waiting the general throng whose admittance to the Holy 'Father must wait upon the dismissal of this company from the New World. While awaiting his coming the Knights gaz- ed around the room. The red drap- ery contrasted vividly with the dark garments of the visitors.

Religious Reception. While the character of the French greeting was mixed, religious and secular, the expei'ience in Italy was ahnost exclusively religious. This is quite easily understood from the con- dition of the land where the Holy Father was to be the central figure i upon whom to wait the Knights were making special expedition. The jour- ney into Italy and the general travel give evidence that the country has hot yet settled back into ormal state. On every hand one is reminded that war debts must be paid, for a tax is affixed to almost every motion one makes. You must pay a' service tax in the diner; an added assessment for each person at table, and if, perchance, you happen to travel on Sunday, 20 per cent is adjoined to the regular and first Ordinary, to trace his devel- this stud; in scarlet for there was a opmnt as he faced ever larger and: slight movement about the throne among the splendid looking body of broader problems, to study his ideals, ecclesiastics who surrounded the dais to show the place he occuPies in the upbuilding of the Church in the eastern part of the Mississippi Valley. The author, Father V. F. O'Daniel, has shown in his previous writings that he possegses skill in the scrutin- izing, selecting and marshalling of their interpretation, and a clear, dig- nified style in clothing them in liter- ary dress. That his reputation will not suffer from the present book must be the verdict of all who read it. It is quite the best work that has come from his pen. Every One of its man pages, show the learned historian's painstaking effort to gather docu- ments, carefully to sift thejmmense of material he gathered to study the Bishop from all sides, to discover the truth, and to be not only just but charitable to those with hom,,1 he disagrees. The result has been a volume that will be recognized NEW ZEALAND BIGOTS WOULD PENALIZE CATHOLIC DOCTRINE (By N. C.W.C. News Service.) London, Oct. 2.--Protestant de- nominations of New Zealand have unit- and the Holy Father had come to lis- ten to the message of his children who had come so far to address him. Some of us were rather surprised to find the Vicar of Christ so short of stature. His photographs had led us fare. In the Custom HouseXhe trials to which a visitor is put does not raise admiration for the people whom he is deigning to pay a visit. You are routed unceremoniousl from bed at the most outrageou hours; you are forced to pass through a madden- ing hour while passports are being very inefficiently examined; if then you' have the slightest article upo which custom can be attached ou are obliged to have Italian money with which to pay it; if you have none, you run the risk of being left behind. As Rome Is Now. In Rome we saw no great outward show of suffering consequent upon post-war affliction. The hotels were all crowded the restaurants, large and small, seemed to do a thriving trade and though we did not visit the public places of amusement, we were told that enormous crowds are'in con- stant attendance. There is much com- plaint about the money rate. That is another feature of present travel which fairlytempts insanity. From day to day you never know just what your coin is worth. Hotels give you one rate of exchange and banks an- other; in thestores you never are quite sure whether you are being cheated; jumping from country to country and from city  to city, half your time is taken figuring just how much money you may have on hand. We were favored the night of our ar- to believe that he was well towards historical data, a tireless industry in the average height, but actually he is their search, a judicial mind in esti- not ninny inches over five feet. Clad mating their value, a keen insight in in white he brought a new touch of color to the scene and before he took his seat he swept the assembled guests with one hurried but inclusive glance which seemed to take in fully the details of the surroundings. His eyes, gazing through the heavy glass, give the peculiar sensation that, though his sight is defective,he nev- ertheless, has a penetrating vision: which is somewhat disconcerting. Some remembered the kindly glance of his predecessor, who, with a father- ly smile set the visitor instantly at ease. With Pope Benedict it is no by any means the intention to con- vey the impression that he is not as kindly and that his glance is not as friendly as that of Plus, but there ap- pears to be at times a sort of per- plexed, if not worried, character to his gaze, which is not surprising thinking of the sorry hour in which his pontificate has been cast. , Pope's Speech. ed to obtain penal legislation against In his speech of greeting Supreme the Ne Temere decree of Plus Tenth Knight Flaherty stressed the religious respecting Catholic marriage, and nature of the body which then ad- have dragooned a parliamentary com- mittee into reporting in favor of a statute imposing a heavy penalty on anyone who says that persons who have contracted a civil marriage are not truly and sufficiently married or that their children are not legitimate. Penal Offence to Teach. From Wellington comes the infor- mation that the Protestants are vigor- ously demanding the passage of the proposed legislation, which is being opposed by Catholics under the lead- ership of Most Rev, Archbishop OShea, Coadjutor of Wellington. His Grace, according to reports received here, says he has been assured by his legal advisers that the amendment sought by the Protestant alliance would in effect make it a penal offence to teach the Catholic doctrine that marriage is a sacramen} and that oh- er marriages, althohgh valid as civil contracts, are spiritually incomplete and not true.marriages in the sight of 4od, or of the Church. Archbishop O'She points out that if the law is adopted as now written it will mean that New Zealand is the first country in the Empire t.o realize a religious doctrine. "We will resist and defy such a law, and encourage both priests and people to disobey." His. Grace is quoted as having stated publicly. Thoae convicted on charges of dis- obedience to this pretended law would not pay fines but would rather suffer dressed the Pontiff. The translation of this peech by Archbishop Ceretti was a masterpiece of Italian diction. : In answering the Pope plainly was moved by more than ordinary emo- 'tion. He faltered in his words at the outset, but gaining poise after a sen- tence or two, he made a remarkable speech, the longest, it is said, that he ever delivered to, a visiting delega- tion. He showed an intimate knowl- edge of the history of the Knights. Branching off to his local conditions he bemoaned the fact that organiza- tions had set themselves up in Rome to rob the people of their faith. He made a strong appeal to the Knights to do something to offset the pervert- ing activities, since wiKhout rancor he wished to say that the propaganda to win the Italians from their naive reli- gious allegiance would aid only in de- spoiling them entirely of their Chris- tianity. Blessed Each Knight. Circling the groups after he 'had ended his talk the tIoly Father bless- ed each Knight, gave out souvenir medals and imparted a special bless- ing to all the articles of devotion that were presented. Greatly impressed l by the condescension of their spiritual head, the Knights departed only to be stirred on the morrow to new feel- ings of admiring emotion by the kind- ness o the Pope.

It is an excel- lent contribution to the history of the Church in the United States, going . back, as it does, to the early days of the three States mentioned and Mary- land, and crystallizing the events of one of the most important periods in the development of Catholicity in the country. The many original docu- ments, most of which are brought to light for the first time, are so made to aid in telling the story of the Bish- op's life that they add much to the beauty and interest of the narrative, as well as strengthen its authority. To cellect these the distinguished As- sociate Editor of "Te Catholic His- torical Review" and Vice President of the American Historical Association, with his trustful photostat camera, traveled not only through a large part of the United States but many coun- tries in Europe. Nowhere should this superb volume be of greater interest than in the Diocese of Columbus. In- deed, it should find its way intoevery Catholic home and library in the Dio- cese.
