CLEMENCEAU'S PRAISE OF NEW BISHOP (By N. C. W. C. Nws Service) Paris, Sept. 30.--Mgr. Lemaitre, Vicar Apostolic of the Sahara, has just been appointed by the Pope, co- adjutor to the Archbishop of Carth- age. In mentioning this appointment, one Of the Paris papers remarked that Mr. Clemenceau," during'his of of- :fide as Premier of France, one day had a long conversation with Mgr.

FATHER MORAN Massachusetts Friends Pay Memor- able Tribute to Little Rock Young PriestPresents Testiflionials of $2,000--Eulogized by Congressman, Mayor, Clergy and K. of C. Offi- cials. (Special to The Guardian) Brockton, Oct. 25.--Probably never before in the history of the Knights of Columbus in Brockton has such a manifestation of esteem for any one member of the order been manifested than that shown Wednesday evening by about 700 Knights, representative of the district over which Rev. James P. Moran selved as district deputy supreme knight for some time pre- vious to his ordination, at a farewell testimonial in City Theatre, prior to Fr. Moron's departure for Little Rock Ark., Where le is to assume his priest- ly duties• A check for $2,000 was only one of the several means of expressing the high esteem in which he is held by :he K. of C. of this district. The honor of presenting the check fell to District Deputy Supreme Knight Leo M. Harlow of North East,n. Prominent speakers from out of town who were familiar with the hu- manitarian and Christian work con- ducted by the young priest here, aug- mented by " Catholic clergymen of Brockton and the outlying districts, were present and voiced tributes to i Fr. Moran• It was expected that U. S. Senator David I. Walsh would be present but important business pre- vented his coming. A telegram from him, evidenced his interest. / The program was arranged by a conunittee headed by District Deputy Harlow, assisted by local and out of town officials of the Order. Each out, of town council was represented on the committee by the grand knight. Cheers for Young Priest. The young priest was so overcome by the ovation that v:ords of appre- ciation had to be forced from his lips. His brother knights, with whom he had worked for so many years, were evidently aware of the overwhelming appreciation wkich filled the heart of the clergyman, and filled out the gap by rising and under the direction of song-leader, William E. Doyle, gave three lusty cheers and a "tiger" for him. Among the speakers were: Con- gressman Richard Olney, Mayor Wil- liam L. Gleason, Daniel Buckley, past State deputy of the K. of C., of North Easton; Postmaster Edward Gihnore, Rev. A. J. Hamilton of St. Margaret's Church, Rev. Dr. Irving L. Gifford of St. Patrick's Church, Judge Willimu Day of Boston, State deputy of the K. of C., and U. S. Dist.-Atty. Daniel Gallagher of Boston. The meeting was opened by District Deputy Harlow, who acted as chair- man. Prayer and benediction was of- fered by Rev. Alexander J. Hamilton, chaplain of Seville Council of this city• Introductory words of welcome were given by District Deputy Harlow, who on several occasions when he referred to Ft. Moran as bur "Jimmie," was in- terrupted by applause. Congressman OIney's Tribute. Congressman Richard Olney was given a big reception as he was an- nounced as the first speaker. "I want to testify my tribute of af- fection for Rev. Fr. James P. Moran, whom I have known and pride myself at having known for several years," he said. "I have known him as a lay- man, a man of noble means and char- acter. Now that he is a man of God, a great change has been wrought, but we will always know him as our 'Jim- mie' Moran. I want to further testify to his merits as a missionary of the Knights of Colmnbus, the greatest bulwark in the world against Bolslle- vista. I would have you know that my home in Washington will serve as a half-way house between Brockton and Little Rock, Ark., should any of you wish to, at any time, make a visit to i Fr. Moran. In sending him away as one of the great offerings to Catholic civilization, I wish him good luck and Godspeed•" Mayor'and Priests Speak. Mayor William L. Gleason was in- troduced as the "three times mayor of Brockton" and received a big ova- tion from the audience. "We concede that this meeting is the greatest in the history of the Brockton Knights of Columbus,' 'the mayor said. "To Rev. James P. Mo- ran, the splendid layman that he was and now as "the priest of God that he is, Brockton extends its heartfelt trib- ute." The mayor told briefly of Fr. i Moran's history in this city and told of the prospects which lay before him. i R ev. Irving L. Gifford spoke in the place of Very Rev. B. F. Killilea of St. Patrick's Church, who was unable to be present. Dr. Gifford spoke in behalf of Ft. Moran's ow Church. "It is impossible for the world at large to know exactly what the Roman Catholic priesthood means,' 'he said, "but the world does know what one of the arms of the Church, the Knights of Columbus, has done during the war in Europe has been a source of great pride and satisfaction to the Holy Father, Pope Benedict. "The reception given Fr. Moran here this evening is quite in contrast with that given to the ordinary new priest leaving the seminary. Fr. Moran's experience among men as the layman wor.ker that he was has pre- pared him well for the duties of the priest." A glowing tribute to the achieve- ments of Fr. Moran was paid by  Postmaster Edward Gilmore, who I spoke in behalf of Seville Council of this city, representing Grand Klight i i Arthur J. Dwyer. Eulogizes the K. of C. Past State Deputy Daniel Buckley, representing the outlying councils of the district, paid tribute to the guest of tonor and gave credit to the Knights of Columbus for preserving the high standards of the world. "The name of James P. Moran lms been en- shrined in the hearts of men in Brock- ton and especially the members cf our Order," Mr. Buckley said. "The waves of hate are now spreading over the world. We should be proud to have such a man to give his ideals as a method of dissipating the strength of these waves," Father Hamilton Applauds. Rev. Alexander J. Hmnilton, chap- lain of Seville Council, and pastor of St. Margaret's Church, who was per- haps responsible for Fr. Moran's re- turn home more than anyone because of his appeal to Bishop Morris after the ordination in Little Rock, opened his tribute by announcing a special mass for the ](nights of Columbus wouht be sung by Fr. Moran at the Campello Church Sunday at 11. Fr. Hamilton said: "No one in this city is mm'e proud to lmve seen the ordination of Fr. Moran than I. My remarks come from the depths of my heart. Ever since I first met Fr. Moran I told him i'was convinced he had a higher calling. I told hinl his time belonged to the Church. I ex- plained if he had delayed in answering  it he must do so eventually. His is a wonderful character. You all knew him as a man of sincerity and honesty whose word was his bond. When he said he would do a thing he did it with a zeal and energy that was apparent. As I told the bishop of Little Rock, any man who can go out and struggle tlwough the battle of life the way he did is wortlw of the position to which he,has been elevated. As trustee of the public library, of. the Brockton hospital, in every line of civic and spiritual work, he has been a leader, an untiring worker; one whose efforts could but inspire those who worked with him. Going Far Away. "The priest is the salt of the earth. Without the priesthood we would have no church and without the church] faith would be lacking. Fr. Moran is l going far away to make the biggest] sacrifice a man can make, but doing or others will be no new task for him. The qualities which actuated i him to go higher will actuate him to do God's work in Little Rock. 'Jim- mie,' you are leaving your friends, but you will not go to your new place a stranger. They know you in Little Rock almost as well as we do here. You have our love, our admiration, our prayers. What more can we give ?" Community ing!ng. Each of the other speakers paid tribute in turn to Fr. Moran, each speaking of the various lines of work which he had conducted in Brocktpn. Community singing was led by Wil- liam E. Doyle, official K. of C. song- leader. Vocal solos were given by Miss Irene Mahoney, solist at St. Patrick's Church; Daniel W. Craft, William E. McGunnigle and Thomas Mailiff of North Easton. From the Canton Council. An unusually large delegation at- tended from the Canton Council, which had the honor of being insti- tuted some months ago by Fr. Moran, who at that time was district depuyy. Announcement was made by Ft. Hamilton of the Mass which is to be celebrated next Sunday at 11 o'clock at St. Margaret's Church bY Fr. Mo- ran for the members and families of the Knights of Columbus and the A. O. H.. Cardinal O'Connell Assembly, Fourth Degree, K. of C., will act as escort to Seville Council, K. of C., on the occasion. Fr. Moran Expected This Week. Rev. Jas. P. Moran, the recipient oI these great honors in his home city, is expected to arrive in Little Rock at the end of this week and take up the duties as assistant to Rt. Rev. Mon- signor Tobin of the Cathedral. Diocesan Notes (Continued from Page 2.) rilton, from every angle of critical observance, attest him as a leader, the J;rue and able priest, the genial friend, the upright and loyal citizen. No citizen of Conway county, as such, is held in higher appreciation by his fellow-men than Father Goebel. His merit has been proven on every occa- sion, when good and loyal citizenship was on the scale or in demand. And ever with him were the people whose trusted leader he has been for six years past. He, with his people, lived up and paid up to 100 per cent Americanism during the perilous war days, with :heir full and over quota of boys, blood and money. No hyphen .was allowed to lessen the loyalty that they felt they owed to the nation of their proud adoption or of their birth. The citizens of Morrilton in general duly accredit Father Goebel and his peo- ple as being a most representative body of Christian people and of loyal American citizens. Parochial School. Attached to the foundation and the robust growth of the Catholic Church in Conway county during these past forty years was the essential auxil- iary, a parochial school. Conjointly with the work of tle pastor and the Church, went on the training and the education of the children by the Sis- ters of Notre Dame. ,These Sisters of that famous teaching Order, so favorably known in Europe and America, have registered on the an- nals of the parish the thorough edu- cation of generations of its children, whose training and education leave I them today the staunch members of[ the Church at Morrilton, if at home, I and, if abroad, always manifesting the marks of a pure and practical Catholicity. All-weather Catholics. The writer had Occasion to observe the unwavering faith of these good people on last Sunday. Despite the very heavy down-pour of rain and the distance and difficulty of travel, Fath- er Goebel had goodly congregations at both Masses. He took occasion to bespeak his own and the hearty co- operation of his people in the Bishop's efforts to have in every Catholic home of Conway countY, the diocesan GUARDIAN as a weekly visitor. All Saints and Souls Days. For the convenience of visitors to Morrilton for All Souls' Day, we ap- pend the following; All Saints' Day: Masses at 6:30 and 8:30 a. m. Benediction 'after the last (High) Mass. There will be a procession to the cemetery in the afternoon if the, weather and roads permit. All Souls' Day: Masses begin at 7:00 a. m.
