In each t i_s a small central chapel, roofed over but open to the air, with a long, roofed-over shelter extending to right and left in curving lines like the spreading wings of a great white concrete airplane. Automobilists may drive up to these shelters to have their machines bless- ed. The general lines of the two new structures are very simple and they are carried out wholly in reinforced concrete. Above each central chapel is a tall and very striking tower, square at the base but merging at the top into a massive and modernistic likeness of the head and shoulders of Saint Christopher carrying the (3hrist Child and a great cross.

New York, Nov, 2.---Convicted of participating in the disturbances that attended the M~morial Day parade of the Ku Klux Klan last May, in de-~ fiance of police orders, John Kipp of Hastings, and John Marcy of Yonkers, yesterday were sentenced to the Court of Special Sessions at Jamaica to the New York Penitentiary. Kipp, who at the time o~ his trial openly boasted he was a member of the hooded order, was sentenced to serve six months, while Marcy, who declared he was not a Klansman, but had merely been an onlooker, received a thirty-day sentence. In imposing the sentence on Kipp, Judge Healey, who with Justices ~el- ly and Caldwell, occupied the Court of Special Sessions bench, said: "You are nothing but a thug and a loafer. You were sent here by the Ku Klux Klan as a strong-arm man and you did your work to suit the Klan.'

The great organ- ization of the Swiss Catholics of Ger- man nationality, the Swiss People's Union, at its annual meeting at Schaffhausen has recorded in resolu- tions its horror and protest at the persecution of Catholics in Mexico.
