O'Sullivan, promi nent medico-legal expert and Ford ham College lecturer, died in New York January 25.

Children Saved from Burning School. ~The Xaverian Brothers' school at Leonardtown, St. Mary's County, Md., was destroyed by fire January 27. Leonardtown has a population of about 1,200. Two hundred children, ranging in age from 6 to 17, were in the school buildings when the fire started. Most of them were marched out by the teachers, but some penned in on the floors and unable to escape by the doorways, were dropped from i windows into waiting arms. No cas ualties were reported. Diocesan Farm for Unemployed. •—Homeless, convalescent and unem ployed men will be afforded a rare opportunity to make a fresh start and take a new grip on life through the acquisition of a fine farm property of 103 acres by the Philadelphia Arch diocese for operation in connection with the St Ignatius' House. The property, which has the equipment of an up-to-date farm house, is situated on Whitehall road, one-half mile north S of the Germantown pike. This new diocesan institution, which is said to be the only one of Its kind in the country, is the outgrowth of sixteen years' experience on the part of Miss Grace Town, superintendent of St. Ig natius' House, who established the Vine street haven and has managed it continuously since 1904. Catholic Physician goeS fo China. —The latest addition to the Chinese Mission Society comes in the person of Dr. Robert F. Francis c^f'New Or leans, La. Dr. Francis has sailed for China and is proceeding immediately to Han Yang, where he will join the priests and work with them as a medical missionary in the district un der their care. Dr. Francis was born at South Bend, Ind., and educated at Notre Dame university. He took his degree at the American university in Chicago, and is also a graduate of the Boston College of Physicians and Surgeons. He has been largely iden tified with leading medical institu tions throughout the country, partic ularly charitable ones, and was for a time physician and surgeon to the Red Cross. His prominence in medical circles as a close student of his pro fession, no less than his wide charity, have won him the esteem of all class M. Monslgnor Dunn Blesses Lso House. —The Very Rev. Monsignor John J. Dunn, chancellor of the New York archdiocese, represented Archbishop Hayes in officiating at the blessing of the new Leo House for German im migrants at 330 West Thirty-third street. The blessing was preceded by an inspection of the house by visitors and. was followed by Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament. Three former brown stone dwellings have been remodeled to form the new house and an appeal has been sent out for furnishings. The Leo House, which fcas done excellent work among Ger man immigrants for many years, was formerly located at 6 State street and is conducted by St. Raphael's Society. Five Sisters of St. Agnes have the in stitution in charge. Catholic Women's League does No ble Work.—Reports showing that the Catholic Women's League of St. Louis had gathered $13,096 and expended $12,334 in relief work last year, were submitted at the annual luncheon of the organization. A circus, which the League made a means of raising funds, yielded $10,629 toward the cost of ac tivities. Mrs. William Mafflt, chair man of the circus committee, reported that only 101 tickets out of the total of 100,000 distributed remained unpaid for. Mrs. Edward Walsh made known that 676 families, numbering 1,245 in dividuals, had been the beneficiaries of the League's social service depart ment. The kitchen operated by the League's community center in one of the poorer sections of the city served 9,235 meals, of which 1,007 were sup plied to children attending the special public school in the neighborhood. Yo Have Diocesan Civic Center. *Mfians for the establishment of a diocesan civic center, which will be a central home for Catholic young men, have been launched in Philadel phia under the Catholic Young Men's National Union. A campaign for $100, 'T 000 to carry on the work will be in augurated under the direction of the T. Right Rev. Monsignor Nevin F. Fish er, who has just received from Arch bishop Dougherty a letter commend- ing the project. The new civic center will be one of a chain to be conduct ed throughout America under the auspices of the National Catholic Wel fare Council. It will be a gathering place for diocesan organizations, for leaders of the Boy Scout and Big Brother movements, and will operate an information league, an employment bureau, legal aid department, charity and medical bureaus and depart* ment of immigration. V Immodest Dress Condemned By Queen's Daughters.—Resolutions de nouncing immodest fashions for wom en and questionable theatrical per formances have been adopted by the Home Association of the Queen's Daughters of St. Louis, and doubt Less will inspire similar action by other local organizations of Catho lic women. Rev. Michael O'Connor, S. J., addressed the meeting and decried the "dangerous tendencies of society." The resolutions were pre pared and proposed by a committee of which Miss Mary I. Hoxey was chairman. The prevailing tendencies of the times demand that Catholic women show by their conduct, dress and speech a strong protest against the present extremes of fashion in scanty attire and the extravagances of the constant change in modes, the resolutions declared. "Many theatri cal amusements of the present time are unfit for presentation", and can be stopped only by the refusal of the public to patronize them," the resolu tions continued. "The amusements for the young, also the books and mag azines read by them, should be more closely censored." The Queen's Daughters conduct a home for women. It was reported by the treasurer of the organization that the receipts for the year were $20,173 and the ex penses $19,035. The number of board ers at the home averaged eighty-two a month. This was the largest aver age ever reported. OLD WORLD NEWST London Priest Killed.—A Brit ish military court found that the Rev. F. J. Darcy of London, who was killed in a military raid on the Imperial hetel in Cork, January 6, was shot by the military "while at tempting to escape." Franciscans Found Review.—A new Franciscan review has been found ed at Assisi. It is called S. Fran cesco di Assisi, and is designed to make preparation for the seventh centenary of the Saint's death, which will occur in 1926. The Franciscan movement is stated to be making tre mendous headway throughout the war stricken world. Converting Holland.—Some idea of the progress .which has been made in spreading the Faith among non Catholics in Holland may be gain ed from the fact that conversions to the Faith are said to have an nually numbered about 1,000 during the last few years. A feature of these conversions is that the great majority of them have taken place in dioceses which are predominantly Protestant. Apostleship of the Sea.—Mgr. Ritch ie, V. G., has expressed warm ap preciation of the work for Catho lic seamen done by the Glasgow District Committee, which Included representatives from St. Patrick's, St. Aloysius', St. Peter's, St. Margaret's, Holy Cross, and St. John's parishes. Leaflets in Spanish and Italian are being prepared, and will be distribut ed shortly. The work of members of the Committee who visit the ships as they arrive in Glasgow has been very effective. To provide funds for car rying on the .work a concert will shortly be hel& V The Catholic Press.—Replying to a toast at the annual luncheon of the Association of Belgian Catholic Journalists, the Prime Minister, Carton de Wiart, said that Catho lics were the only people today to have a clearly defined rule of life, and the Catholic Press must make it known to all. The Catholic ideal would continue to predominate in Belgium, even if political elections went against the party. The Press, he added, had freedom of expression, which was denied to the Government it should use this liberty to defend the religious rights of the people against possible attacks by the Gov ernment. Switzerland's Catholic 8ocial Guild. —Important declarations against Cap italism as well as against Communism were made by the "Christian Social Workers' Union" of Switzerland at its first Congress in Zurich recently. This Union groups together all the Catholic social organizations of Switzerland. Some 350 delegates, representing 60, 000 members of the Union, were in attendance. A constructive program of Catholic social action was adopted after prolonged deliberation. The program repudiates both the "social ization of the means of production as extolled by Socialism, or by Commu nism," and "Capitalism, whose direct ing motto is 'negation of moral prin ciples and exclusive pursuit of profit and pleasure.'" Not Yet a Priest—Going the rounds of the press, sines it first appear ed in The New York Herald, Au gust 10, 1920, is the story that Jean Marie Joseph Charles La Fonta, a deaf mute, who had been taught to speak, had been ordained to the priesthood by the Bishop of Bor deaux, after permission had been granted by the Pope. M. La Fonta Is only in minor orders, and it will be several years before he will be called upon to undergo the examinations pre liminary to sacerdotal ordination. Wbhhwc RiHSS taSeist GOLD ANO|»»LVl«SMlTH. as E»»t §l«th fttwt' High Paper Cost.—-Publication of Catholic papers in Czechoslovakia has been made exceedingly difficult by the high cost of paper, and many of these journals and periodicals are facing the future with concern. The crisis is so acute that Arch bishop Kordac called the publish ers into a conference to consider the.situation and find a remedy. The most popular of the Catholic dailies, Lid, with about 45,000 subscribers, closed the last year with a deficit of 300,000 crowns. The Czech, a daily for intellectual Catholics, had a sim ilar experience. Cardinal's Appeal fer School.—The appeal of Cardinal Gibbons in be half of St. Mary's Industrial School of Baltimore, which was recently de stroyed by fire, has been responded to by the Supreme Board of the Knights of Columbus, which has pledged the assistance of the members of that order in raising the $2,000,000 necessary to rebuild tt^e institution. Milan Catholic "U" Receives Pope's Blessing.—Pope Benedict has sent a telegram to Count Lombardi, president of the New Catholic University of 'Mi lan, calling down the divine blessing on that institution, and expressing the wish that it may spread more abund antly the light of truth, make men better, civil society happier, and the country more grand and noble. The initiative in creating this university was taken by Cardinal Ferrari, arch bishop of Milan, and the Holy Father sent to the dying cardinal this expression. The university is to be sustained by con4rifeuUons from Cath olics.""^ New Catholic Publication In Eng land.—The Catholic Social Guild of England is intensifying its part in so cial reconstruction by the publication of a new monthly organ, the Christian Democrat. The policy of the journal is the same as that of the Guild based on the social doctrines of Leo XIII, and stands for the maintenance and defense of the Christian family, a living wage, partnership instead of class antagonism, Leo Xlll's doctrine of property seeking to make as many as possible become owners. The movement is under the leadership of Monsignor Parkinson, rector of Os cott College and first president of the Guild. A Notable Jubilee.—Scholars trill be interested to know that recently, in the historic Abbey of Montecassino, Italy, was kept the golden jubilee as a priest of the learned Abbott Am brose Amelli, 0.3. B., for many years Archivist of the Abbey! founder of the Society of S. Cecilia for the Re form of Ecclesiastical Music, and a patristic and biblical scholar of Eu ropean fame. Congratulations poured in from all parts of Europe, and the Holy Father wrote a most flattering autograph letter. Cardinal Gasquet traveled on purpose from Rome to Montecassino, and presided over the celebrations. The Abbot's confreres published for the occasion an impor tant and valuable work entitled, "Mis cellanea Amelli," which contains learned contributions from the pen of many scholars, such as Cardinal Gas quet, Professor Burkitt, Dom Wilmart, of Farnborough, and M. Mercati, the Prefect of the Vatican Library. A Great Loss.—Jugoslavia has lost a great churchman and a strong po litical leader in Dr. Antun Mahnic, Bishop of Veglia, who has died at Zagreb. His writings on religious philosophy and his treatises of ped agogy are classics in Slav litera ture. He was the most redoubta ble foe of the new paganism which infiltrated slowly among unobserv ant or indifferent circles, until he arose to demolish with scorn and con tumely the theses of the would-be progressists. As the founder of the Catholic movement that brought to gether Croats and Slovenes in one powerful organization he is revered by both peoples and considered a pio neer of their religious and national progress. He advocated the preserva tion of the old Slav or Glagolite Litur gy in the islands and on the coast dis puted between Slavs and Italians. Church in Georgia.—In the London Tablet, the Rev. Dom Maternus Spitz, O. S. B., reports on "The C&tholio Church in Georgia"—not our American cotton State, but that mountainous forest clad kingdom in Southeastern Russia, called by the natives Sakartwelo or Karthweli, which, on May 26, 1918, constituted itself as "The Sovereign Independent State and Democratic Republic of Transcaucasia." The Catholics in this new republic are few and far be tween—about 40,000 in a total popu lation of 2,500,000 souls. Georgia now has full religious liberty. In response to the favorable report of Mgr. Mor londo, O. P., whom Pope Benedict XV had sent there as Apostolic Delegate to investigate ecclesiastical affairs, the Propaganda has now asked the General of the Society of Jesus to send three Jesuits to assist in the work of reconstructing the Catholic apostolate in Georgia, from which great fruits are expected within the near future. Nymphs and 8Hepherds.—Father Joseph Degen is known to the Cath olic public as a doughty penman with the courage of his opinions, says the London Universe. He is not less outspoken in the pulpit Recent ly he alluded to a section of the young women of Leicester—those over whom parental authority did not ap pear to exercise much sway—by the uncompromising name of "harpies," Father Degen being out of the protec tion of the unsophisticated young men. The preacher subsequently re ceived letters frop indignant citizens, |Is"' '"t-A" u ''".iN v iw THE CATHOLIC BULLETIN, EEBRUARY 12, 1921' .WHAT BUILDS THE HOME?

Father Degen's ac ceptance of the revision, which con cedes to the "nymph" the position of a potential harpy merely, has a dry ness about Its peroration which is not ineffective. "The general moral tone," he says, "would be improved if all un chaperoned 'nymphs' were at home and in bed before 10 p. m., and let them not forget to say their night prayers."
