The Catholic ladies, through the Ca- tholic Woman's League, have done much for Church and school. We can later on look back to this school as to a pioneer in the South- land, espeeialiy in Dallas." Father Gomez, a gifted orator spoke in Spanish on Christian Edu- cation and the need of the parochial school. Bishop Lynch said that he could add nothing to what had been said by Monsignor O'Brien and Father Gomez. As the head of the diocese he thanked all for .their presence on this great occastion when another milestone was set to designate the march of religious progress. He thanked those who came from afar and those at home who had made the erection of the school possible, and expressed his appre- ciation of the work done by the Car- melites, the Sisters, the Catholic Women's League, especially the members of the Mexican committee of the league. Benediction of the Blessed Sac- rament closed the services. Guadalupe parish is in charge of the Carmelite Fathers, with the Rev. Cyril Corbato, as superior, the Reverends Luis Benages and John Perris and Brother Peter Tomas, as assistants. The missionary spirit is active in all the parishes of Dallas. The Catholic Women's League helps to pay for the teachers, since St. Anne's is a free parochial school, and the ladies of the St. Vincent de Paul Society furnish free lunches for the children, while other benefactors contribute to the support of the insti- tution. Although only a few years old, the parish is well organized. Parish so- cieties for young and old are func- tioning well, and each has a good membership.

This action was in compliance with a request from Louis Blumberg, Presi- dent of the Jewish Postal Workers' Welfare League. Father Kiernan wrote: "As director of the Holy Name So- ciety of the Postoffice, I take this means of appealing to all our men to co-operate with the men of the Jew- ish Welfare League in this matter. It will please me greatly to hear that through the whole-hearted interest and effprts of our society our Jewish brothers have been enabled to obtain leave of absence on their holidays." This is one way for people of dif- ferent religions to live together in the same community. GANDHI'S INFLUENCE HELPS CHRISTIANIT.Y MISSIONER DECLARES (By N. C. W. C. News Service.) St. Lbuis, Me., Nov. 3. Christian- ity in India is likely to be helped by the influence and example of Mahat- ma Gandhi, who is struggling for the opened the way to education and Christianity; although he himself, thoroughly familiar with the Christ-i inn Bible, is not a Christian. "India is in a great state of un- rest," said the missionary. "The peo- ple are conscious of ancient civiliza- tion and are not unmindful of na- tionalistie traditions and customs. They wish, I believe, to work out their own cures and remedy their own faults. The educated Indian was some- what incensed on the reading of a recent book called 'Mother India' in which certain unpalatable truths were pointed out devoid of mitigating cir- cumstances. Sunday, Nov. 13.--St. Stanlslaus Kosta, was of a noble Polish family. He went to Vienna to study at the Jesuit College there. Cured of an illness by Our Lady herself, he was bidden by her to enter the Society of Jesus. To avoid his father's opposi- tion he was obliged to leave Vienna and was admitted to the novitiate at Rome. He lived there only ten months and died as he had prayed to die on the feast of the Assumption, 1568, at the age of 17. Monday, Nov. 14.--St. Didaeus, was born in Spain in the middle of Shore. Glasgow, Oct. 31.--Standing bare headed in a terrific gale, while the agonized shrieks of women and chil- dren rose around him, a priest of the Irish village of Lackan celebrated a requiem mass on the shore of Lack- an bay when the recent week-end storm brought death to the fishermen of the village fishing fleet only sev- eral hundred yards away, according to reports received here today. Practically every breadwinner of Lackan, which is in county Mayo was drowned in the storm. The fishermen had been warned against the storm, but they were too poor to miss a night's fishing. They put out in rowboats promising to return as quickly as possible. When the storm came up, the, panic-stricken families rushed to the beach with the parish priest. Three hundred yards away the i boats were being tossed by the! waves and dashed against the rocks. It was seen that death was inevi- table and the priesi began to chant a requiem mass, but his words were drowned out by the wind and the roar of the ocean. Amid heart-rending scenes of grief the priest gave condi- tional absolution and the strange death ceremony was ended. One family lost five men and an- other three. Belfast, Oct. 31. It was feared today that forty-seven lives were lost in the gales that swept down the Gal- the fifteenth century. Entering the Order of St. Francis he remained a way fishing fleets over the week-end lay brother all of his life, perfect in wrecking havoc throughout the entire British Isles. his observance of the vows of poverty, chastity and obedience. When he was sent by his superiors to the Ca- nary Islands he hoped to win the crown of martyrdom but such was not God's will and after making many conversions by his holy example he returned to Spain. There, after a long and painful illness, he finished his days embracing the cross. Tuesday, Nov. 15. St. Gertrude, Abbess, was born in the year 1263 of a noble Saxon family and at the age of five was placed in the Bene- dictine Abbey of Rodelsdorf for edu- cation. Her life was crowded with wonders. She has, in obedience, re- corded some of her visions, in which don when twelve years old to study beauty the intimate converse of her soul with Jesus and Mary. She ruled her abbey with perfect wisdom and love for forty years. Wednesday, Nov. 16.---St. Edmund of Canterbury left his home at Abing- pousing himself to Mary for life. In at Oxford. There he protected him- self against many grievous tempta- tions by a vow of chastity and by es- pousing himsel fto Mary for life. In 1234 he was raised to the See of Canterbury where he fearlessly de- fended the rights of the Church against the avarice and greed of Henry III. Unable to force that monarch to relinquish the livings which he kept vacant 'for the benefit of the royal treasury, Edmund retir- ed into exile rather than connive at this wrong. He died shortly there- after and was canonized in 1246 within four years of his death. Thursday, Nov. 17.---St. Gregory Thaumaturgis was born in Pontus of heathen parents. He studied philos- ophy under the great Origen who led him to the true Faith. Later he was made Bishop of Neo-Caesarea. St. John the Evangelist appeared to him m a vision and gave him a creed which contained in all its fullness the doc- trine of the Trinity.St. Gregory died in the year 270. Friday, Nov. 18.--St. Odo of Cluny was the son of a noble Of Aquitaine. His father wished to see him distin- guished at Court but the call of the religious life was too strong. He took the habit of St. Benedict at Baume and later became abbot of the great abbey of Cluny. The Pope sent him often as a peacemaker on nissions to princes. On one of those missions he was taken ill at Rome and, at his urgent request carried back to Tours where he died in 942. Saturday, Nov. 19.---St. Elizabeth of Hu'ngary, was the daughter of a King of Hungary and the niece of St. Hedwige. She was betrothed in infancy to Louis, Landgrave of Thur- ingia, and brought' up in his father's court. While her husband lived she devoted her wealth and influence to Bodies found in the sea were being brought ashore amid heartrending scenes by relatives of the fishermen who had been waiting all through the night to identify any bodies recover- ed. Most of the fishermen were poor and had large families. It was esti- mated more than 200 dependents had been left without means of support. Airplanes of the Irish Free State assisted in searching over the water for bodies. "MAKE A BONFIRE OF 'OH, PROMISE ME' " Pastor Assails Songs at Church Weddings. New York, Nov. 1.---A desire to "Make a bonfire of all the copies of '0 Promise Me' and similar sentiment- al ballads sung at church weddings," is expressed by Rev. Paul Lindemann. editor of the American Lutheran, in the current issue of that periodical. "A disharmonious note is struck at weddings when a well-meaning singer sentimentally pleads, 'Oh, Promise Me,' or gives the assurance, 'I Love You Truly'," Mr. Lindemann wrote. "We have suffered long under the strange notes brought into the wed- ding ceremony in church, which is, after all, a service and should retain its religious character." PItOTESTANT MINISTER G I V E S INTOLERANT ORANGEMEN REBUKE Dublin, Nov. 1.---The Rev. J. S. Rutherford, M. A., Presbyterian min- ister at Warrenpoint, Down County, who has accepted a call t~ the Free State, declared in a valedictory ad- dress to the members of the Orange Lodge of Warrenpoint, that the ob- ject of the Orange Institution is re- ligion, not politics. "To talk about being a go0d Orangeman if you are not first a good Christian, is a pure farce," said Mr, Rutherford. "Remember that you have co-religionists in the south and west of Ireland. Do not make things harder for them, by bitterness and recriminations against your Catholic neighbors in the north. I have found it possible to be a good Protestant, and at the same time, to treat with Christian courtesy and kindness, those who have been brought up in the Ro- man Church." S.F. ATTORNEY GIVEN PAPAL KNIGHTHOOD Los Angeles, Oct. 31.---It is an- nounced here that the Holy Father has conferred the rank of Chamber- lain of Honor, Knights of the Sword and Cape, upon Francis Montgomery, well known local attorney and distin- the age of 24.
