"We could not exist were it not for the charity of American Ma- rines," said the grey-bearded 76- year-old bishop. Father (Lieut. Com.) James A. Sullivan of Newport, R.I., U.S. Navy chaplain to a Marine air group, brought the Cardinal to the orphanage. Maj. Gen. C. F. Schilt accompanied the Cardinal, who had come to visit the Marine airmen. Afterwards General Schilt person- ally piloted the plane bringing the !Cardinal to the next stopping place.
