Four steps are involved in the hearing test program First, the pupils are screened in an effort to determine who should be tested.

Third, the follow-up and referral to private physician. Fourth, correction or placing of child in a more advantag eous position in classroom. Some of the most obvious results from such a program are the noted improvement in the child’s class work, an elimination of inattention and a better understanding of the child’s problems.

Four Bishops will perform the age-old and impressive ritual which is analogous to the ceremony of the baptism of a person. Bishop Ready will consecrate the main altar of the church while Bishop Hettinger will consecrate the altar of the Terce Chapel, dedi cated to St. Joseph Bishop George Leech of Harrisburg, the altar of the Lady Chapel, and Bishop Jo seph Gilmore of Helena, Montana, the altar in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel, which is dedicated to the Sacred Heart. which will be consecrated at the Cathedral Wednesday, the fixed or immovable altar. In the fixed altar the slab or stone table, called the ntensa, must extend over the whole altar and be cemented to the supports. The supports (stipites) must also be of stone at least the sides or col umns by which the table is sup ported must be of stone. In addi tion there must be a cavity or sep ulchre in the table for relics of martyrs. All altars ought to stand free of the wall but if this is incon venient at least the high altar should be arranged in this man ner. Because it serves the society of the faithful, the Church, the altar is consecrated by a ceremony which is somewhat akin to baptism and confirmation the altar is sprinkled on all sides with holy water specially blessed for this ceremony and is anointed with holy oil. Moreover, the eltar will be a resting-place for the relics of mar tyrs and their tomb must be pre- pared this adds a new note to the rite. Finally, the altar is specially significant of Christ, our High Priest, our Altar, our Sacrifice, and the altar therefore will be blessed with ceremonies which make it a sacramental, a holy thing to be used in a holy manner by the holy people of God. The consecration of the altar really begins on the day before when the Office of Martyrs is re cited in honor of the relics of the martyrs which are to be enclosed within the altar on the following day Candles are left burning be fore the relics after the Office. In the morning lhe bishop and his attendants first recite the Sev en Penitential Psalms, a rite which is borrowed from the bap tism of adults Then th# bishop blesses the water and the salt which are mingled with water and wine. With this mixture the altar is to be sprinkled and the cement moistened for the sealing up of the tomb of the relics. The bishop uses this mixture to trace a cross on the four corners of the altar and then, dipping the hyssop or sprinkler into this mixture, he goes seven times around the altar, sprinkling it. The second part of the consecra tion of the altar has to do with the relics of the saints. These are now carried in solemn procession from their resting-place of the day before to their new sepulchre, where they are sealed by the bish op.

His pirn was to make speakers the of pastors in the convention cities, and to U' ge mothers to express their ideas on the manner of Catholic educa tion then in vogue.

A former Holy Rosary parishion er and graduate of St. Aloysius Academy, New Lexington, O., pre sented a paper on "the arts" on the final day of the convention Sis ter M. Jeanne, O S F„ head of the Art Department at Rosary Hill College, Buffalo and editor of the "Catholic Art Quarterly", urged the delegates to switch from the present trend of neglecting the arts in our Catholic schools. She suggested that educatoi s avoid the use of stereotyped “art” lessons and permit the emergen of the individual. According to Sis ter Jeanne, art can be found in many things, so long as the end result is an expression of the in dividual. This can include drawing, painting, cooking the crafts, or any activity wherein the individ ual can project himself into his product. Another point forcibly brought out by Sister Jeanne was her ob jection to the commercialization of religion in much of the art we know today. She stressed the point that true art is not wholly senti mental, as is much of the religious art today, but rather it should be devotional.

Dr. Clement S. Mihanovich, di rector of the Department of Sociol ogy at St. Louis University, assert ed that “more and more our ex perts on marriage and the family have come to realize they have un leashed a Frankenstein monster in the form of materialism and posi tivism.” In one of the principal addresses at the 29tb national convention of the Catholic Library Association which met at the Deshler Wallick Hotel, the educator described the materialist marriage experts’ cur rent attitude: “They have summoned enough courage to frown on the Kinseys and the Folsoms, they have intro duced marriage guidance counsel ors, and they have finally realized that value judgments are a part of the social sciences.” Noticeable among the trends to ward a Christian realization of mar riage and the family, he continued, are the following acceptable state ments that have been proven em pirically by modern experts in the field: “Long engagements are danger ous and related to poor marital suc cess, romantic love is an unsatis factory basis for lasting marriage, forty per cent of all hasty marriag es are unhappy marriages, mixed marriages are not conducive to marriage happiness, mar i a e s dominated by men (that is, the fa ther is the head of the family) are the most successful marriages), sixty-seven per cent of all couples who do not attend church have poor marriages, and families with Major address of the conference, as announced previously, will be given by Bishop Ready.

Eighteen per cent denied the existence of God 62 per cent thought that sterilization was so cially beneficial. 68 per cent be lieved that divorce is good for soci ety, and 94 per cent approved the use of contraceptives.

He commented: “The wider distribution of in come which the unions have help ed to bring about since 1900 is only one in that whole series of ad vances in social welfare which have helped to establish a better state of social justice in our time Quoting figures reported in 1949 by the National Industrial Confer ence Board.
