To the Editor of The News-Times.
Sitting on my porch in the down
town district, in the "world famed"
city of South Rend, on what id com
monly called Sunday, wishing for a
little rest after a strenuous six days
of work, what do I, and what do my
neighbors observe and j;et.
r.etweeii 11 and VI o'cloc'i; noon
there are seven ice cream wagons
pass my corner, all with horses on a
trot, and the iron tires of the
wagons rattling to set one distracted,
one mUht surest if you were at
chucrh you would not hear it and
true in some churches but how
about the other hours of the day,
with hundreds of that modern nui
sance, the motorcycle, hurrying over
the streets .uoincr nowhere; coming
from the same place.
We cannot stay the wheels of mod
ern progress and free action, nor
would we. but we can Kive the res
idents of our city quiet niirhts and at
least on ;uiet day in the seven.
We 'h. must live in the city can
do away with the n.is of the horse
drawn me it wagons of 4 a. in.; the
beer wagons of 3 a. m.; the ice
wagons of G a. m.; the vegetable
wagons of 7 a. m.; ;the ice cream
wauons, the laundry wauons, the
procery wairons, and a hundred and
one other noisy horse-drawn metal
wheel wau'ons that po clanpinsr down
our streets at all hours of the day
and niht.
We can also do away with motor
driven vehicles that pive out noise.
Ret us have a Noise Zone where
these cehivles must not po.
Horses may still be a necessity on
paved streets but iron tires are not
while hard rubber tires are so easily
procurable. A proper ordinance and
one year's time to prepare vehicles
would all be necessary. This would
interfere with no one demanding
their ice cream, 'jreau. milk or Ice
Notre Dame. The sermon at the 10
o'clock mass will be delivered by
Ilev. Casimir Sztuezko of the Holy
Trinity Catholic church at Chicago.
The sermon at the cemetery will be
by Father KmmanuH Wrobel of Ft.
Wayne. III. Rev. Pishop Rhode cf
Chicago will assist in the sanctuary'
and probably will provide the last ab
solution in the church, and during the
exporting of the ,V)dy from the
Pastor Since 1S77.
Father Czyzewski was placed in
charge of St. Hedwige's parish in
1ST" when it was known as St. Jo
seph's parish. It was located on Mon
roe st.. but in 1S79 it was4)lown down
and the congregation was without a
In lSS the members of the parish
under his guidance erected the pres
ent S"t. Hedwige's church, which is
considered one of the finest Catholic
churches in the city. It was dedi
cated on April 13. 1 S S 4. The build
ing stands on S. Scott St., near Di
vision st.
originally the congregation num
bered but 125 families. Under Fath
er Czyzewski's able leadership the
congregation increased so rapidly that
there were 1,2 00 families enrolled on
the church registry.
This led to the erection of t. Casi
mir's and St. Stanislaus " Catholic
The present church is an Imposing
structure and has been decorated and
fitted out under Father Czyzewski's
guidance. The main altar is the gift
of the St. Hedwige's society while
the two side altars and the bell were
presented by the St. Stanislaus socie
ty. The organ was given by the St.
Casimir's society.
In addition to the church there i9
an extensive school building o;i the
grounds and also the parsonage. The
first school buildiner was erected in
1SSG but it was destroyed by nre in
1896 and was replaced by the pres
ent structure. The school has en
rolled nearly l.Goo and is in charge
of an able corps of teachers. The
record made by the r-chool Is due to
the efforts of Father Czyzewski and
his clerical assistants.
Uusian Poland Native.
Father Czyzewski is a native of
Russian Poland and wa.s born Feb. 14,
1S1;. 'He studied in the monasteries
of his native land until ilrv were
abolished by edict of the P.us' Ian gov
ernment. Ho came to America in 1SGJ and
became a student at Not?e Dame uni
versity in 1S72. He was ordained to
the priesthood In 1S76 and was a
member of the order of the Holy
Since his ordination he has been
active in ministering to the spiritual
welfare of the Polish citizens of South
Pond. He established the first Polish
church in the city and it is largely
through his efforts that the other lo
cal Polish churches were erected.
Father Czyzewski was well liked by
the members of his congregation and
when it was announced Monday that
ho was dead there was much mourn
ing among the members of his con
gn gation.
He not only attended to the spirit
ual needs of the members of his con
gregation, but many a member of St.
Hedwige's church has been helped
over the rougher spots in their road
through life by the material aid of
fered them by their pastor.
He is survived by one brother.

Frights J Says Billie
About Fashion Birds on Boat
At last I am away on my well-earned
vacation, with nothing to do until
fall. I don't call writing to my dear
paper friends work; It is Just being
able to say. the things I would like to
say and can't say from the stage.
This year I am going to take a long
time to visit many different places In
England and on the continent. You
may be sure that I shall have lots to
say on the subjects cf both men and
women for my interest in them grows.
I sometimes wonder if women real
ly do always want to look beautiful.
Take, for example, this boat. The
women came aDoard, happy and
prosperous, well dressed above all,
well dressed.
Rut a.s soon as the boat was fairly
off they disappeared to come back
later In shabby faded suits and im
possible hats. Such frights!
Women of wealth and fashion seem
to glory in looking as disreputable as
a man does when he goes fishing.
One society leader told me she
was 'going over to buy a few gowns ".
She looked the part.
It seems rather pathetic that the
clothes that the women wear are so
ugly, for, barring sickness, there is
nothing like a sea trip to Improve a
woman's appearance. The moisture
makes her skin soft and pink and
the exercise she gets walking the
deck, the vigor of the salt water bath
and the freedom from over-exertion
and late hours make her fresh and -wholesome
looking. If her hair is in '
the least disposed to curl it becomes
positively tantalizing to the men who
hover around.
But most of them pin over their
hair a frowsv old cap, on her feet she
puts broken-down shoes and she
wraps herself in a nondescript
sweater or cloak which can lay claim
to neither color nor lit.
But at "the captain's dinner" all
the women are beautiful again, wear
ing their prettiest clothes, and show, (
every one of them, that "line feathers
make fine birds." Consequently, I
say to you, my dear women friends,
"costly thy raiment as they purse can
buy" and be sure that you have not
only expended money, but thought
and good taste, on your clothes.

on Sunday and the merchant could
deliver it as cheaply with rubber tires
as iron, and give the down town res
ident an opportunity to rest. The mo
torist or merchant who will not cut
out noise can keep on the outskirts
of the city with little hardship.
With an interesting campaign ap
proaching some candidute should
make the Noise Zone a slogan and
ho will not only get hundreds of
votes in the primary, but he would
get support from all sorts of people
who would like one quiet day In
seven. It could well have the sup
port of every citizen good or bad,
and need not bear the label "reform,"
which so often means nothing more
than the outs wish to get in.
With a quiet city the people would
have time to think of a law abiding
city, and we can have a mayor and
councilman who will give us both if
brought forcibly to their attention.
There are other noises and nui
sances galore that could be Incor
porated In such an ordinance with
out making it obnoxious, and for the
good of the people.
