speakers which included such promi
nent members of the order as Peter
W. Collins, director general of the re
construction and employment service
of the Knights of Columbus. William
.T. Mulligan, national director and
chairman of K. of C. committee
on I
war activities, Vincent S. Scully, re
turned K. of ('. secretary. Mayor Rich
ard .L. Kincella of Hartford, and Rev.
W. A. Keefe, state lecturer, the fourth
degree section of the Knights of Co
lumbus had a fitting climax , in a- bnn
nuet at the Hartford Club, Sunday
evening, to Uicir exercises of the day,
chief of which was an exemplification
of the fourth degree on a class of 270
candidates, forty-two of which came
from Norwich. This was the largest
clas.? upon which the degree has been
conferred in the history of this; sec
tion of the order, in Connecticut.
The. banquet, which was ' conjpn
mentary to the candidates, was "one of
the largest ever held in Hartford. In
addition to the 279 candidates there
was a large attendance of prominent
fourth degree men from all sections of
the state, covers for 500 being laid.
The exercises of '.he exempl'ricalion,
which was under the direction of John
'M. Lee of this city, master of the
Fourth Decree for the district of Con--neetietft.
occupied almost . tha .-.oniWe
day! At 10 o'clock Sundae morning
the candidates and members assem
bled at the Knights of Columbus home
on Prosieet street av.C v?nt hi a rody
to the cathedral,, where they assisted
at a solemn high mas', a 'special sce
tion having been reserved for them.
At 2 o'clock in tie afternoon ihe
candidates assembled at Foot Guard
armory where the degree was exem
plified behind closed doors. The mem
bers of the degree team Irom this sec
tion included from Norwich, Jolm.lt.
l.ee, master; Charles U. Murphy, sec
retary and J. Edward Driscoll; ' from
Jewett City, John .F, Ilennon.
Following the.i exemplification', and
one of the principal features of the
day. was a street parade at 6 p. m.,
through the principal streets of Hart

At the 7.3!) o'clock mass in St. Pat
rick's church- Sunday, the rector, Rev.
J. H. Broderick, read from the pul
pjit. two circular letters from Rt. R,ev.
John J. Nilan, bishop of the diocese of
Hartford. One letter gave notice that
the customary special devotions in
honor of the Sacred Heart of Jesus
will be held during June at St. Pat
rick's church following the daily, mass
at 7 o'clock, and every Friday evening.
The second letter was a reminder that
the annual collection for the Sovereign
Pontiff, Benedict. XV will be taken up
in all the churches of the diocese on
Pentecost Sunday, Julie 8th.. This of
fering, so ancient that it is still re
ferred to as Peter's Pence, having con
tinued since Sajnt Peter was the first
Pope, is the affectionate contribution of
the millions of Ronun Catholics in the
wor'd. to be wisely disbursed by Pope
Benedict, as Bishon Nilan botes, "in
providing for the millions of Christians
who look to him for guidance and pro
tection." ' '" Y
The letter adds:" "While- we pro
vide him with the rherns to meet tire
expenses immediately', connected with
liis administration of the church, we
must not forget, that he. is the Father
of the faithful and .should have in his
hands the funds necessary to relieve
distress in every land. He best ap
preciates the needs of the millions aid
is the host medium to '.iispens'
f,'n,.T,!,. ci-.rl nnnnttnnlK. CTUrtt-v, r.
his temporal nowr. he has no ?re-
sources of his own. Nations that form
erly gave freely out of their abund
ance, are now destitute through the
ravages and destruction of war."
Bishop Nilan notes that last year the
amount contributed by- the laity of
this dioeAse wTas S14.277.74 and by the
clergy $3,725. adding that while the
priests should naturally take the lead
in loyalty and generosity to the Holy
Father, having given move than one
fifth of the total of $18,002.74 eontrib
uaed if the per capita amount given
by the wage -earners .had been the
same as that ''of the clergy, the total
contribution from this diocese, instead
of being $1S.000 would, be $2,000,000.
The Norwich parish alwavs takes
pride in contributing liberally toward
the support and fund for alms of the
saintly and learned, hn of the church
and the amount, of St. Patrick's con
tribution always shows up well in the
list of offerings made by the parishes
of the state.

The following interesting letter has
been received by a member of the Bui-
letin editorial staff from Private Earl
L. Sparks, Co. B. M. 1. B'n, who is at
Andernrrck on The Rhine.
' Dear Mr. : As usua 1 of a
morning I am at the K. of C. rooms
Where I write letters from S.-"0 to 9.30
a. -m., then I meander down to the V.
M. 1 C. A. reading rooms and read till

From Broadway, we enjoyed a moon- '
light sail up the Rhine as far as Ben-
I dorf in the patrol boat, a rmall motor
ucm, r lrsi i.ieiu. mormon, iviarine
C?n?. Missouri, being
the host, i
The Rhine flows at lhe rate of eight j
kilometres an hour or "5 miles (one
kilometre is 5-8 of a mile). The boat
is capable of 20 kilometres an hour.
On the return we shut off the .engine
and drifted down stream. Yesterday,
Mothers' Day. ws left . Andernach at
9.30 a. m. by the steamer Albert Man
gus, sailing up the river as far as Bin
gen of Fair Bingen on the Rhine fame.
A lunch on board consisted of bean
soup. . cold roast beef sandwiches,
stewed prunes and coffee. In all there
were 1 50 on board from the 2nd and
3d division;!. Wc passed a number of
old castles, many of fhem were built
around 1200 A. D., and a few from 3S
B. C. up to the year 3500. They are all
located atop the high hills which 'rise
from the Rhine, and on these slopes
are countless acres of grape vineyards
with here and there a plot of plough
ed soil. All of these castles have some
legend attached 1o them, the one with
which we are all familiar being the
.Mouse Castle, which the story created
in those distant days when facts yields
to fiction, tells us of one Bishop Hat
to Ojf Mainz, a miser, who shut his
people, up in a large storehouse after
promising to give them grain, and set
fire to the building, men, women and
children perishing in the flames, after
which the rats liesiegcd him in his
castle, where he met and earned an
untimely and much merited demise.
Oilier castles of which I remember the
name:-, fire The Cat and the Mouse.
Stosenfcls, The Loreilli and Ehren
breitstien, one of the largest forts in
the world. We arrived back at Ander
nach at 3 p. . Then we visited the
Rhine River Hut, one of the Y. M. C.
A. recreation - buildings and enjoyed
hot chocolate aiid doughnuts served
free' every afternoon. This building
contains an immense ball room where
every night dances or masquerades
are held with music by a German or
chestra or one of Uncle Sam's imlitary
bands. The Y. M. C. A. also runs a
cafeteria here and lor a mark or two
one can buy re'al old" fashioned ice
cream, cake, pie, hot cakes or a reg
ular dinner," including everything from
soup to nuts for from 5 to S marks. At
the K. of C. rooms can always be
found a large number of soldiers writ
ing letters or playing checkers or
dominoes, putting puzzles together
and enjoying the movies in the K. of
C. theatre which start at 2.30, 6.S0 and
8 p. m. Each day the Knights of Co
lumbus give' away large quantities of
soap, Bull Durham and Piedmont to
bacco, Nebo and K. C. brand cigaret
tes, including the standard brands of
pipe and chewing tobaccos. Now and
then the men are treated to bars of
milk and-nut chocolate and recently
at Cobienz the K. of C. disposed of oO,
000 doughnuts in a week. The Jewish
Welfare Boards have a pleasant cozy
place for the men to spend their leis
ure moments and all the various so
cieties, etc., are doing wonderful wtirk
to keep up the morale of the men, not
forgetting the "Greatest Mother in the
World" who kept us supplied with
smokes while in action and now con
tributes magazines for our enjoyment.'
The Second division will probably
leave here about the first week in
June and according to Secretary Ba
ker the entire A, E. F. forces will be
home by September. The 2nd, whose
home has been at Syracuse, N. Y., will
go to- Fort- Dodge Iowa. Time has
passed swiftly since we ' arrived in
Germany last December 16. " Trust
