Only the crumbling Walls of the historic foundation of 1791 remain and it is the hope of the present )astor of Soledad, the Rev. Wil- liam Stuhlmann, that a good part of the building will be restored in time for the 150th anniversary next year. Mission Soledad was founded by Father Francisco Lasuen, but its first structure was not completed until 1797 and this temporary edi- fice was replaced by a larger church in 1805. At the time of secularization, in 1834, it had 350 Catholic Indians and records show- ed that there had been 2,234 bap- tisms and 350 marriages since the foundation. Following seculariza- tion the process of decay began.

Msgr: Charles E. Fitz- gerald, spiritual director of the North American college. The sermon on the theme: "St. Paul and the Modern Man" was delivered by the Very Rev. Msgr. Richard L. Smith, vice-rector of the English college. The music and ceremonies were in charge of the students of the North American college. In the afternoon, the solemn Pon- tifical Benediction was given by the Most Roy. Edward J. Hanna, re- tired Archbishop of San Francisco. FRANCISCANS' BOOK Jerusalem--The Rev.

Nothing could have been more appropriate than an address made before the Marmion cadets last week by Paul Adams, cadet United States Military academy, West Point, N. Y., who just four years ago was a member of the graduat- ing class at Marmion. But one year of militai'y science and tac- tics had been taught then and Mar- mien is proud to have one from this first group of graduates at West Point. Cadet Adams held the inter- est of the Marmion cadets when he told the story rich in lore which makes West Point the institution it is today. That part of his story which dealt with his initiation and the V:est Point plebe system and the respect demanded by the up- per classmen of the plebes was of particuuar interest to the Marmion cadets. Visual Education Through the efforts of Capt. Dob- bins members of the science class- es receive a wealth of opportunity for visual instruction in the bi- weekly movies that he secures for them through the visual instruction department of the University of Ill- inois. Under the Captain's super- vision similar movies are shown in the evenings for resident students and for other scholastic groups dur- ing the week. The seniors had the privilege of attending the Veterans of Foreign VVars program held in the Marmion gym last Thursday evening. Dr. Daniels, major USARC., presided at the program during which he in- troduced the Marmion seniors to the assembly. The exercises were held in commemoration of the 42d anniversary of the sinking of the U.S.S. Maine and were sponsored by Waidley post No. 468, V.F.W. the academy band under the di- rectiou of Capt.

Murphy ---Courtesy Telegraph-Herald versified farming and as one of the leading authorities on agricultural ;problems in the country. He was born on a farm near Troy, Vis., December 5, 1872, the son of a pioneer in crop rotation and scientific dairying He was graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 1893 and immedi- ately became associated with the Minneapolis Tribune, of which his older brother, V. J., was president and publisher. Mr. Murphy served in an executive capacity in practic- ally all departments of the paper, succeeding his brotheras publish- er in 1921. Owned Large Farm With the exception of a three- year absence because of ill health, he never was dissociated from the paper, although he had many other interests. It was during his sabbatical, spent on his farm in the Red River valley of western Min- nesota, that he developed many of his agricultural ideas. His 6,000- acre place, now Femco Farms, be- came an agricultural laboratory. He also bred pure-blooded Perch- erons and developed GIendalough, game farm in northern Minnesota. Mr. Murphy's agricultural the- ories were applied to farming in the northwest when he returned to the newspaper business in 1921. Agriculture was prostrate in the post-war depression and Mr. Mur- phy urged the farmers to engage in diversified farming, instead of depending only on wheat. He financed 12 experts to develop what became known as the "Min- nesota Plan." He was instrumental in organizing the $10,000,000 agri- culture credit corporation to finance farmers in the adoption of such a plan, money being lent to the farmers and secured by mort- gages on livestock, a form of bank- ing collateral which he claimed the severe depression of 1931 proved was one of the safest types of se- curity. OBSERVATION The Most Rev. John Gregory Murray, archbishop of St. Paul, is- sued the following public state- ment in connection with Mr. Mur- phy's death: "The death of F. E. Murphy re- moves from the world of journal- ism a gentleman who had made his career a consistent service to his community and to his country. Convinced that in his chosen field he had the opportunity to perpet- uate a praise-worthy family heri- tage, he sought new outlets for his energy in extending to tho great- est possible number the advantages which he appreciated as funda- mental in the welfare of all the people. Truly th modest publish- er rose to the height of achieve- ment that makes a man great in the judgment of all men, because he cultivated to the utmost the ad- vantages and responsibilities of his own task."
