Division No. 1 Instead of Division No.
7, Ladies' Auxiliary.
Through an inexcusable error, the
Irish Standard in its issue of Febru
ary 1st credited Division No. 7 with a
honor roll celebration, when it should
have read Division No. 1.
The program as given to the editor
later, by Division No. 1, was very
beautiful and creditably rendered and
the invited guests were Impressed
with the work of Division No. 1. As
a small token of appreciation for her
untiring work the president of the Di
vision, Mrs. Dempsey, was presented
with a beautiful morroco bound prayer
book by the members. The Misses
May O'Donnell, Adelaide Hannon and
Catherine Ooughlin, retiring officers,
were presented with beautiful rosary
The parish of St. Bridget steadily
develops. The congregation is in
creasing every month. Loyalty to the
pastor is very much in evidence and
the interests of religion is the concern
of a large number of zealous work
ers. The last bazaar and the socials
held since that time have been such
a success as to draw from members
of other churches expressions of min
gled surprise and commendation.
It looks as if Feb. 21 will be a very
important date in the history of the
parish. On that evening a group of
young people (in the middle of their
teens) will stage "Mrs. Tubbs Does
Her Bit." This play has lately come
from the pen of an able play writer
and gives to the actors fullest op
portunity of entertaining their audi
ence from start to finish. Mrs. W. K.
Cody is the promoter. She has given
very generously of her time and
money to make the play a dramatic
and financial success. The partici
pants have just come on the stage
of parish operations. They have
formed the "U & I Club," and under
the splendid coaching of their able di
rector, Miss Kendrick Brooks, they are
sure to make a hit on Feb. 21 and
win further laurels on other occa

and it is believed that she has achieved
a record in this line of work that is
unsurpassed in the city. She was the
first woman in the city to win the

288 pairs of knitted socks.

In addition to these she has knitted
16 pairs of socks for the soldiers at
Fort Snelling, which are not included

there will be a Parish Social at the

large scale, as it is expected that al
of the parishioners and' many from
outside the parish as well, will be in
attendance. The bill of the evening's
entertainment includes card games, vo

number of interesting specialties. The
several committees in charge of the
program promise a delightful social
gathering, and have spared no pains
to meet the demands of the occasion.
Refreshments will be served by the
ladies of the parish, who have often
demonstrated their ability to handle
this feature of its social affairs to the
general satisfaction of their patrons.

went over the top and had that town

Our hearty congratulations to Arch
bishop Dowllng upon his elevation to
the Metropolitan see of St. Paul. Seven
years ago Bishop Dowling came from
New England to the newly erected dio
cese of Des Moines. The west was
then new to him. He had been born
and educated in the east, and there
he had labored as a priest for nearly
twenty years. But he soon grew to
love the west and it soon learned to
love him. He caught its spirit at once,
and quickly became a leader in his
state. He became a part of the west,
and we are glad that his new appoint
ment does not take him away from it.
Bishop Dowling'8 seven years in Des
Moines have been marked by steady
progress in his diocese. The work of
organization was accomplished with a
thoroughness that showed executive
ability of a high order in the Bishop
to whom the work was entrusted. And
with that ability was coupled a sunny
disposition that won the hearts of
priests and people in his diocese. His
work in founding the Des Moines Col
lege through popular subscriptions,jUne
from the Catholic parishes of the dio-
cese fehowed his zeal for Christian edu
cation. He is himself a scholar of
rare attainments and he can appre
ciate what education means for our
Catholic young men.

they may," said he, "woman suffrage
is here—woman has come into her
own." England, during the Great War,
he pointed to as a living example of
how efficiently woman is able to fulfill
the duties of man in all walks of com
mercial life. He called attention to
the fact that for the responsibilities,
which necessarily accompany woman's
right to take active part in the govern
ment of the world, there should be
an adequate preparation. By show
ing that the subjects of the ordinary
curriculum may have a significance
and a development as broad and deep
as life itself, he demonstrated that a
college education is just the sort of
