I f i!: i'.f l } L 7. !, i .,/ 'v PAGE SIX RAISING MILLIONS .TO AID ACTIVITIES Hierarchy to Appeal for Fund, in Be- half of Educational and Charit- able Enterprises. (By N. C. W. C. News Service.) Washington, D. C., Oct. 4.--Appeals made to Catholics of the Units@ States in the last six months in behalf of educational, charitable and welfare enterprises have aggregated about $30,000,000, and indicate the spirit of progressive activity now animating the Church in this country. This too tal does not include sums raised or sought for the erection of new or the repair of old churches. Millions for Education. Most of the fund which it was con- templated 'gathering were intended for Catholic education--primary, sec- ondary and higher. The total of the budgets prepared for this purpose was more than $23,000,000 Charitable in- stitutions -- hospitals, orphanages, homes for the aged and the like--- were to be the beneficiaries of some $2,700,000 of the aggregate. Welfare work, such as clubs for men and wom- en, community houses, civic better- ment, etc., was to-receive something more than $500900. The remainder was to go to miscellaneous activities under Catholic auspices. Gathering of Funds. The largest amounts to be gathered were the "Archbishop Ireland Educa- tional Fund of $5,000,000" in the Archdiocese of St. Paul; $4,000,000 for the endowment of the Seminary of the Detroit diocese; $8,000,000 for the Catholic University (including a semi- nary), which Most Rev. Archbishop Mundeleba has planned for Chicago; $3,000,000 for St. Louis University, .and $2,000,000 for the Cathedral, grade school and nurses' home in Du- luth. Most Rev. Archbishop Hayes is making provision for an annual in- come of at least $500,000 to suppm Catholic charities in New York. $30,000j000 In All. Not all of this great total of $30,- 000,000 was to be obtained at once, but a considerable part of it was for immediate use, and was subscribed within short periods. In many in- stances the sums named in thg ap- peals were greatly exceeded. Definite fgures are not available as to the amounts raised in the last six months for the building and repairing of churches, but the total is believed to be several millions of dollm's. To Survey for Appeal. In view of the generous response of American Catholics to the calls made upon them in the name of their reli, glen, the decision of the Archbishops and Bishops to consider a survey for an appeal for the support of the No-: tional Catholic Welfare Council as- sumes addition,tl interest. At their recent meeting in Washington the Bishops authorized the Administra- tive Committee of the National Cath- olic Welfare Council to prepare a sur- vey for an appeal to the Catholics of the country for an endowment fund. Until this survey has been made it will not be known what amount it is proposed to raise for the Council, as- suming that the Bishops approve the survey. Council's Endowment Fund. It is the intention of the Hierarchy to continue the Welfare Council's sev- eral' activitiesthe departments of education, laws and leglslatiSn, social action, lay ,organizations and press and publicityand to bear the ex- pense of these for the next ye`ar. The survey is to be made with a view of 15rovidtng thereafter for the Council's permanent endowment. In the event the survey and recom- mendations submitted to the Bishops are approved by them, the lay organ  izations affiliated with the National - Welfare Council will conduct the work of solicitation under the supervision and constant direction of the Hier- axchy. CARDINAL AMETTE'S DEVOTION TO ROSARY' (By N. C. W. C, News Service.) Paris, Oct/5,--In a letter address- ed to the people of Paris on the 0cca- sion of Cardinal Amette's death, Mgr. RolanI G0sselin, Auxiliary Bishop of Paris, reports that despite his taxing amdunt of work the late Cardinal nev- er failed to recite, every day, a full rosary. He usually made use of big wooden beads given to him by his sis- ter, a Dominican nun. 'The Cardinal was also strongly de- voted to the Third Order of St. Dom- inic. The sash of this Society was in his coffin, placed round his body which had been dressed in full pontifical gar- ments. " FATHER KELLY'S SUCCESSOR. (By N. C.W.C.

"It is always inde'ed a pleasure to see our children round us, but it is a very special source of happiness to have in front of us today the repre- sentatives of that noble Society which we know has already" acquired such merit before the Catholic religion and its great country America.

An :ertainly we cannot but repeat th, well deserved praise which our pro lecessor of venerated memory bestow ed on that initiative as bein, bo.h appearance and in fact well deserv- ing of religion and of true clture. Efficacious Helpers. "Further, we remember the unfail- ing help that the Knights of Colum- bus give both to Bishops and parish priests for the carrying out of their pastoral ministry. It is this great help which often makes possible works Of beffeficence, and surely it can -be said that the name of the efficaci- ous helpers should be written in tle book of etern'al/life by the side of the foundeTs of the works of beneficence they gupported. "Nor can we possibly p.ass over in silence the provident and charitable activity of the Knights of Columbus during the recent war, not only in the Governments too. And shall not what they have said find echo from us who, while we could not arrest the awful scourge, set before ourself the noble purpose of at least mitigating its con- sequences ? Consoling Fruits. ,"These abundantly consoling fruits of the work of the Order of the Knights of Columbus are attributed, above all, in our opinion, to the inti- mately religious spirit which inspires the Order and causes in every one of its members that clear-cut, open and entire profession and practice of the Catholic religion which does so much to make the individual morally honor- able and socially useful. And that is why the Knights of Columbus, be- sides being a magnificent example to their brethren in the faith, are also the best of citizens. Truly they de- serve to be honored with the name of 'knights,' a name which in the Mid- for the K. ofC.

Such conditions must necessarily favor the life of your in- stitution, but it is through your spirit of initiative and fruitful activity that it has developed. And therefore we have all reason to hope that the Kights of Columbus will extend and intensify to even greater good their work, maintaining it--as there is no reason o doubtin due reverence and sincere attachment towards the Epis- copate, which on its side has always shown its sympathy for every under- United States but in all the coun-]taking fruitful of good. tries affiictd by the terrible calamity I "We are sure too that the Knights the .memory of Which is-. still vivid. ]of Columbus will never depart from That activity gained the praise, and lthat wise line of conduct which they admiration, not only of Catholics, but]have always followed hitherto, of not of all of good. heart without distinc-l identifying their program with any ARCHBISHOP MANNIX TALKS.'TO ENGLISH ON ]msn. Desires Peace Between Two Countries On a Just Basis. / (By N. C. W. C. News Service.) (Cable delayed for confirmation.) London, Sept. 28.  Archbishop Manni made his first public pro- nouncement since his enforced arrival in England at a great reception given in his honor in the Canon Street Hotel by the Bishops and clergy of the dio- ceses of Westminster, Southwark, Portsmouth and Brentwood. ' Three hundred and fifty members of the clergy were present and applauded the venerable prelate when he declar- ed that if England were sincere in her wish to do justice to ireland and to retain Ireland within the empire, she should immediately withdraw her army of occupation. Not an Agitator. Archbishop Mannix emphasized the act. that he was not talking as an er of dissension, but that he desires peace between England and Ireland. England Should Be Consistent. "Assuming England were sincere and wished to retain Ireland within the empire," said the Archbishop, "then England should immediately withdraw the army of occupation and give Ireland the fullest dominion home rule. I Ireland were not then satisfied and desired a republic, Eng- land, to be consistent, would have to agree to it. In that event, England might hope that Ireland would be a friend in any just cause where the mutual interests of the two" countrs were threatened." Monsignor Cotter, Bishop of Ports- mouth, was chairman of the reception. A letter of apology for his absence was received from Cardinal Bourne, who is not in thecountry at present. THE PRODIGAL. As a rule the prodigal has to go on eating husks until he learns how to do something worth while. It takes mis- fortune to make many people come to themselves. How much easier the les- son would be if learned at home in the formative years when the child is Irishman and that he had no message to Ireland from England. He declared  building the character of the man or that te was not an agitator or breed- woman. other program of political character. Indeed we believe that there lies the secret of the sympathy that they have gained on all sides and which has as- sured their magnificent success in ev- ery field of action. "An old principle teaches that good spreads itself, and it is not surprising therefore that, while still doing so much fruitful work in their beloved country, the Knights of Columbus have thought of extending their ac- tion to Italy too, and in special man- ner to this city of Rome, dear above all cities to our heart.

Blesses the Knights. "This is another field of compe- ties opening before you. May the struggle bring you as much merit as it brings us hope. "But, that our hope may not be brought to naught and that your merits may be copious, we turn to Him who holds in His hands the hearts of men and we pray Him to give strength and comfort to the As- sociation of the Knights of Columbus in their noble work.

RABBI PAYS TRIBUTE TO THE HOLY FATHER (By N. C. W. C. News SerVice.) ,Paris, Oct. 5.:--A Syrian colony which, some three years ago, took ref- uge in Corsica in order to escape mas- sacre, has just started on its way to Beyrouth. Before departing, the Grand ,Rabbi, Solomon Ben Samour, delivered a thanksgiving adreSs. He recalled that the first heip granted him upon his arrival in Corsica had come from a Catholic priest, who said to him: "In the nane of Pope Benedict XV, who desires the Catholic clergy to do their best in order to help the victims of war, I place myself at your disposal for all service I may be to you." The Grand Rabbi declared: "As a minister of the Hebrew faith, I beg to express my gratitude to the august Chief of Christendom, who, during the war, has relieved s.o much suffering b_ his favorable interventions 'on behalf of the wounded, the sick, the missing, and the condemned." In devotion to the Sacred Heart we find the grace of holiness, for, said Blessed Margaret Mary, "nothing is better calculated to raise the soul in a very short time to the loftiest de- gree of holiness." lessons and learn more about our glorious America.)
