RECEIVE MANY RE QUE8TS FOR ASSISTANCE. Since announcing their offer of a $5,000,000 war memorial building to the veterans of the war through the Amer ican Legion last October, the Knights of Columbus have received alterna tive propositions from various worthy and unworthy organizations and per sons that would require a net fund of more than $1,500,000,000 to cover. Supreme Treasurer Daniel f, Callahan of the Knights Q£ Columbus has com piled the figures. The more worthy causes pleaded for are:—Orphanages, $200,000,000 old ladies' homes, $150,000,000 hos pitals, $300,000,000 domiciles for in dividual European heroes of the war, each of whom presents specious claims that he individually achieved Allied victory, $180,000,000. Some of |the less worthy causes are appeals from sure-thing prospectors and ambitious reformers, running into the scores, of millions. "In all," Treasurer Callahan reports, "we have no fewer than nine hundred requests on hand, most of them from Europe where mar^y good persons re cently took the recent tour of the K. of C. to be a party of American mil lionaires scouting for opportunities for philanthropy. As a matter of fact, the Knights cannot devote their fund to other than the uses of ex-service men, a#d the memorial for Washing ton is the best disposition at this time. We have canvassed all oth ers." 10 TEACOEGROES K. OF C. OPEN SCHOOLS FOR COL ORED SERVICE MEN. K. of C. free night schools for serv ice men have been opened specially for colored ex-service men in the South, according to Supreme Secreta ry William J. McGinley. "We have opened schools for the colored boys in Atlanta, Nashville, Dallas and numerous other cities," said Mr. McGinley. "They show a keen interest in the studies offered them, which are chiefly of technical value in their localities. We are find ing that with opportunities for train ing in the South the young colored ex-service man prefers to remain and work there rather than journey North. And our Southern schools are thus helping to counteract the congestion of semi-skilled help in the Northern cities." More than 4,000 colored ex-service men are enrolled in K. of C. fre%» night schools.

Mr. McGlynn, who was born in San Francisco, was a leading figure in Catholic fraternal activities in his home town before he won success on the stage. PORTUGUESEJCATHOLIGS CATHOLIC CENTER IN PORTUGAL 'TFE 'MOBILIZING FORCES. The Portuguese Catholic Center is now working to mobilize all the Cath olic forces of the country for the service of the Church. The Catholic Center is not, properly speaking, a po litical party, although it is well rep resented both in the Chamber of Dep uties and in the Senate. Regardless of the form of government, it seeks the co-operation of all those, whatever their political opinions, who desire the freedom of the Church, its prestige and the recognition of its inalienable rights. It is working for the reform of all lawa which would injure the na tional religious conscience, it wants freedom of education, which has been prohibited even in private schools and the welfare of the family, which has suffered so much in such a short time from the passage of the nefarious divorce law. The Portuguese Episcopate is at the head of this movement of organize tion and is displaying great interest in the propaganda and action of the Center.

(By N. C. W. C. News gervidfc). Miss Anne T. Morgan, first vice president of the American Committee for Devastated France Colonel Colin Hamilton Livingstone, president and organizer of the National Boy Scouts of America, and Lome W. Barclay, di rector of education of the latter or ganization, have appealed to the Na tional Catholic Welfare Council to take part in the work which the Amer ican /-Committee is doing for the French inhabitants of the battle wrecked regions. Frank acknowledgment was made by Miss Morgan that the Committee for Devastated France needed the co operation of the French Hierarchy to insure the best results of its efforts. She explained how this conviction had been impressed on her. The first idea of the Commission, she said, was to conduct the Boy Scout work in France as it is carried on in America to permit Catholic boys to attend re ligious services in their own churches, to let Protestant boys go to their re spective places of worship, and to al law "neutral" boys to spend their Sun days in the woodsfanl fields studying nature/ So anxious was the American Com mittee that the work of the Catholic Boy Scouts be duplicated in France, Miss Morgan declared, that, if the or ganization succeeds in gathering the fund it is seeking, it will agree to en gage and pay twenty Catholic workers to promote its activities in France. Bishops to Consider Proposal. Dr. Slattery, of the Catholic Wel fare Council, assured Miss Morgan that he would present the American Committee's proposal to the Adminis trative Committee of Bishops of the Welfare Council for their action. With out anticipating the decision of the Bishops, Dr. Slattery said, he would want the American Committee to un derstand in advance that if Catholics were to share in its work their par ticipation would be permitted only in accordance with rules and regulations imposed and enforced by the proper ecclesiastical authorities, as was the case with the work done by Catholic* in France during the war. TO HELP YOUNG REN Organization of the Marquette Cath olic League for the purpose of lend ing a helping hand to Catholic men who come to Chicago as strangers, to assist and guide local Catholics in pro curing desirable homes and employ ment, and to safeguard them from surroundings that might injure their faith and morals, has been announced with the approbation Jf Arelibishop Mundelein. A home has already been fitted out, and through a central agency employ ment, desirable places to live are be ing secured for those who need such assistance. The League is soliciting the co-operation of pastors and local societies in its work. IMF MILLION PLACED KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS SECURED EMPLOYMENT FOR HUGE ARMY AT FIFTY CENTS PER PLACE- MENT. The final report of the Knights of Columbus employment system lias been rendered by Supreme Secretary William J. McGinley of New York. It shows that the knights operated bu eaus iri every state of the union, se curing positions for 543,000 former service men at a total cost of opera tion of $272,275, approximately fifty cents per placement—this cost exclud ing rentals of bureaus, usually housed in K. of C. club rooms. Seventy-four Bureaus. In all, 74 bureaus strictly for for mer service men were operated in as many large cities, while the 2,000 sub ordinate councils of the .Knights of Columbus acted as liaison points for the return of service men to their old jobs. No figures are available regard ing the number of these replacements, and they are not included in the cost of service. WANT THEIR KING CATHOLIC COUNT'S APPEAL FOR fMfTURN OF AUSTRIAN KING. (By N. C. W. C. News Service), demonstrations of the warmest ap proval are still being given the open letter recently written by Count A1 fred Resseguier, president of the Cath olic Scholastic Association of Austria urging the restoration of former Em peror Charles and an imperial govern ment.. The letter was published in Das Neue Reich, a Catholic weekly. The reception which has been ac corded this frank demand for a return to the monarchy is a significant com mentary on the present political and social conditions of the country, and an earnest of the changes which may be expected. There Is evidence that the desire for a better and safer order of thingB is growing daily. This .wish for a change may not bring back the mon archy, but it is a warning that the out side world must be prepared for a rather long continuance of dissatisfac tion and turbulence among the people of Austria, and the new republics that were carved from the old Empire. County Alfred is one of the most prominent and illustrious figures in the nobility that has survived from NEWSPAPERS IN PARIS PARIS PRESS SHOWS INCREASED INTEREST IN CATHOLIC NEWS. (By N. C. W. C. News Service)/ "All the leading newspapers of Paris, secular and "neutral," have found it necessary and advantageous to assign special reporters to the task of gath ering religious news. These represen tatives of the various journals have been receiving assistance and advice, as well as information, at the Catholic Archbishop's office. The eagerness for Catholic news is an eloquent proof of the increasing interest in the Catholic affairs of the Republic even by readers of the neu tral newspapers. Religious reporters have formed an association distinct from the existing Corporation of Christian Newspaper men which has for its president M. Rene Bazin, of the French Academy. The president of the new organization is an editor on the staff of the Protes tant paper, Le Temps. The vice pres ident is attached to the Journal. BLESSED l|L LOURDES BALTIMORE BELL IS SOLEMNLY CONSECRATED IN FAMOUS FRENCH GROTTO. (By JC: C. W. C. News Service). Great solemnity attended the bless ing, in the grotto of Lourdes, of a bell intended for the new Notre Dame de Lourdes parish in Baltimore. Mgr. Schaepfer, Bishop of the diocese, had come expressly from Tarbes, to pre side over the ceremony. He delivered an address, in the course of which he recalled the various pilgrimages of American Catholics to Lourdes more particularly those of the American sol diers on March 25, 1919, and the K. of C. in September, 1920. He ex pressed deep veneration for Cardinal Gibbons and showered high praise on the American Episcopacy. After the blessing ceremony was over, Mgr. Schaepfer personally rang the first An gelus of the new bell. This bell of the Notre Dame de Lourdes parish of Baltimore was cast at Tarbes and bears the following in scription: "The eighth of December of the year of our Lord 1920, in the grotto of Xourdes where our Lady appeared, Mgr.

Catholics represent more than one half of the total church-going popula tion of Baltimore, if estimates based on figures gathered by a newspaper during a survey conducted on Sunday, January 30, are correct. The figures showed a total attend ance, in Baltimore churches, during morning and evening services, of 207, 180 adults. The reports were based on the attendance in 349 of the larg est of the 618 churches in Baltimore. Forty-three Catholic Churches were included in the count and these show ed a total attendance of 91,886. Du plications have been estimated at fif ty thousand, and as the attendance at evening services in the Protestant churches was notably larger than in Catholic Churches, it seems evident that the great percentage of the du plications was in favor of the Prot estant congregation. Furthermore, as many of the Catholic churches, nota bly St. Gregory's of which Bishop Owen B. Corrigan is pastor, gave no figures for evening services, It is es timated that the Catholic churches were attended by more than one-half of those who went to services at least once during the day and who may be classed as church goers. Bishop Corrigan in quoting figures in his church, wrote as follows-: "I have separated the children and those under sixteen as I presume you are principally looking for the adult attendance. I have not numbered at tendance at evening services as they would be duplicates, the morning serv ice-*4he Mass—being obligatory.* VENERABLE DEL MONTE ftt#* ».•- v V* r-roi 4» There was read in Rome on Janu ary 23, a deeree affirming the heroic virtues of the Venerable Del Monte, priest of Bologna.

News Service). Rev. William Quinlan, chaplain of Sacred Heart Seminary at Sharon, Ga., has the honor of being the first priest ordained, ifl the diocese ot Sav annah to live to celebrate his golden jubilee. Father Quinlan was ordained In January, 1871, by Bishop Persico at St. Patrick's Church, Augusta, and has spent his priestly life in Atlanta, Sav annah, on the South Georgia missions and at Sacred Heart Seminary. Two purses of gold, one from the people of Savannah, where he serv ed continuously for 27 year#, and .an other from his friends in Augusta, were presented to him in the respec tive cities. In spite of his long years of serv ice in the Church, Father Quinlan never has been pastor of a church, preferring and requesting the more humble station of an assistant. Another anniversary of note recent ly in Georgia was that of Right Rev. Benjamin J. Keiley, Bishop of Savan nah, who received Holy Orders 47 years ago. He has been Bishop of Savannah since 1900.

Dutton G®., New York* Price two dollars. Judging by the Jjame of the author of the abote work one might expect a fiery tirade against tyranny or a fervent appeal for Irish freedom. It is neither one nor the other: It is a calm, dispassionate series of reflec tions on such subjects as Moral Force, The Secret of Strength, Womanhood, Religion, Intellectual Freedom, and others of similar tenor.. Thp work represents nineteen chapters on as many different topics. Each subject Is treated in a dignified, orderly man ner, with clearness, logic and strong appeal to fcultivated minds. Speaking of intellectual freedom, the author says: "The religious prejudice will be no less hard to kill, indiscriminate denunciation of unbelievers as wicked men serves no good purpose and lead^ nowhere. There are wicked men/on all sides. Our standard must be one that will distinguish the sincere men on all sides and our loyalty to our par ticular creeds must be shown in our lives and labors, not in the reviling of the infidel.. We are justified in casting out ttie hypocrite from every camp, and when we come to this task we can be sure only of the hypocrites in our own and we should lay it as an injunction on all bodies to purge themselves." A careful perusal of this hook by the late lamented Lord Mayor of Cork will give one a new insight into the soul of the patriot-martyr it will present a mind rich in the purest thought, a soul attuned to the highest principles, and a reason for that sub lime love of liberty which sent the noble-hearten MacSwiney from the mayoralty chair to the tomb—a vie tim of oppression and of modern tyr anny. Had the American Revolution failed and George Washngton been captured, we easily can picture the American patriot going to death calm ly for liberty even as the great-souled MacSwiney sacrificed himself, for the two heroic leaders were kindred souls each aflame with the same spirit kindled at the same torch. sum CUM CUES Sinsinawa, Wis.
