Sermon Topic The Catholic doctrine of Infalli- bility is scheduled for explanation in the parochial sermons of the Diocese for the 17th Sunday after Pentecost. Christ promised to pre- serve His Church from error by His presence and assistance, and Henry Hanlon, former Vicar Apes- relic of the Upper Nile, who has just died at the age of 75 in the Mill Hill Fathers' sanatoriunt at I Freshfield, Liverpool. As priest and Bishop he served as a Mill Hill missionary in the Himalayas and Central Africa--in the one place often in danger of being frozen to death, in the other being menaced by tropical heat and fevers when scientific safeguards were much rarer than they are now. Once in Tibet he set out to suc- cor villages stricken with smallpox. On the way across a high mountain, pass tie was badly frostbitten. Un- i able to move, he was saved only! through the heroic efforts of a priest-companion, who tied him to the back of a jak and brought him down to the plain. He was to!d that the Tibetan monks would murder him if he went into their territory. He went He found the ordinary natives tel- BLOMQUIST J FURNITURE STORE Furniture . . Rugs..

FREDERICK FUNDER (Vienna Correspondent, N. C. W. C. News Service) Vienna. -- A scientist so distin- guished that he has been awarded the Nobel prize and is one of the savants named by His Holiness Pope Pins XI to the new Pontifical Academy of Science although a non-Catholic, has just made a pub- lic confession of faith in religious belief He is Prof. Max Plank, phys- icist. Until a short time ago he was chairman of the "Kaiser Wilhelm Gesellschaft in Berlin, the principal association of sci- entists in Germany. However, well aware that the acceptance of the papal- honor would stir animosity in Nazi Germany, he accepted, but resigned from the chairmanship of the "Kaiser Wil- helm Geeellschaft." Professor Planck's affirmation of belief in religion was made in a lecture at Riga. He asked, "Wheth- er a person who is learned in na- tural science can-also be truly re- ligious." "In order to answer that question in a satisfactory manner," he went on, "there is no better way than to inquire, on the one hand', what religion really does require in the way of belief of those who profess it, and in what the char- acteristics of real religiousness consist, and, on the other hand, to determine what kind of laws are those in natural science, and what truths this science holds inviolate. "Unlike religion all knowledge in natural scien.ce is ultimately based on survey and measure, which takes place in time and space. The most varied surveys of natural processes have consistent- ly led to the conclusion that a physical phenomena may be traced to mechanical or physical process- es caused by the movements of certain particles of elements--such as electrons, photons, protons, neu- trons-the charge and mass of which are represented by definite figures. However, Professor Planck said', all of these things points "toward a supernatural principle of order, universally ruling in nature." What is most striking to the unbiased observer, he said, is the fact that there seems to be "a universally ruling power inherent in a rational -ill, which is ever conscious of its bjective." "Its real nature to us," he added, "is--and remains--indis- cernible, because we obtain only indirect indications of its existence by" survey and measure."

Practical Catholic Action We all can't be missionaries. Most of us have too little opportunity to win converts. It's only occasionally, that we are called upon to make an open profession of faith. Yet the opportunity for Catholic action is with us daily  practical Catholic action that brings definite, substantial results. Buy all you can from advertisers in The Ob- server. And when you patronize them, let them know you read tleir advertisements in your paper. It is no handicap to you  in fact it gives you an advantage. And it makes it possible for your Catholic paper to be even a bigger and better paper--to do more good--to reach more people --practical Catholic action. The Observer Girl, 5, Records Remarkable L Q. Possessing a 5400-word vocabu- lary, Barbara Sherley, 5, above, of Seattle, Wash., was revealed to have an intelligence quotient of 170---one of the highest ever recorded for a child--when she took an intelligence test at the University of Washington re- cently. Barbara can repeat six digits from memory, or a 15- word sentence, after it has been read to her only once, lished by American Catholic pub- lishers. Religious and the laity can now follow the daily Mass in comfort. The new features embodied in this latest missal make for simplicity, easy visualization and instruction. To make this clear, let us mention a few: The.omplete low Mass only is given in the  "Ordinary of the Mass" without disturbing ref- erences to high and requiem Mass- i es. The latter however are close- ly located in the "Ordinary" for immediate use when required. The Sunday and Weekday Prefaces are printed in full in their proper [places in the "Ordinary." The oth- i er Prefaces are in one section, each in full, requiring but one turn to the Canon even if there be a special "Communicantes." When- ever it is necessary in the "Ordin- ary" to turn to a "Proper" or vice- versa this is simply and plainly in- dicated by graphic symbols and page referene=es. Epistles and Gospels are aBvays in full, never split with a reference. The Re- quiem and Common Mass Propers are given in their entirety, no ref- erences except to the Ordinary. Short lives of the Saints, a glos- sary of Liturgical terms and an Explanation of the Ecclesiastical year form a separate phase of the book for self-study. Thus, they do not as usual interfere with the smooth reading of the Mass parts. There are other equally important improvements. In a word, it Is a most simply arranged Missal which everybody can easily use. 18me, 4x6S in., bulk 1 in., 1856 pages, tinted .paper, silk-sewn, headbands, five ribbon markers, No. 195-2001.

PEACE IS CHEAPER "In the war nearly 10,000,000 were killed; more than 16,000,000 seriously wounded; about 14,000,- 000 otherwise wounded, and sev- eral millions are still missing. The cost was nearly $338,000,000,000. If we could have tossed this money into the sea, it would of course have been much better, but the fact is that we must double this amount, since all the money was spent not to create wealth but to destroy what we had.'--Catholic Youth and World Peace.

PHONE--MAIN 143 509 W. State St.- Roddord I month. I begin to wonder what people did before kind editors did their choosing and digesting for them. The possibilities of mass thinking were, of course, minim- ized. Given three more years and the editors of the Digest should have the body of thought in this nation pretty well under control. Howsomever, I call to your par- ticular attention three articles in the Digest. First is "Jobs Preferred" from the Saturday Evening Post. CINCINNATI .... The article traces the progress Cincinnati has made in solving her relief problem. Relief is--or should be---a local problem, of course. 'hat's the only way you can be sure of having accurate infornta- tion and correctly applied results. Which isn't the reason for my talking about it at all. Whether or not you've noticed. it, Cincy has been coming in for a great share of praise for the work she is doing. Her housing program is one of the best in the country; her method of meeting the flood problem was cause for admiration. For all of which there should be a reason. Some ten years ago Cincinnati received nothing but the name of the worst-governed city in the country. Today she is known as the model city of the nation--for her size. The change has been accomplished under a combination of the City Manager-Council set-up and the use of proportional repre- sentation. Highly scientific, the City Man- ager formula is the best yet de- vised for the running of cities. Ev- ery student of government can as- sure you of that. A small council concerns itself with two things: the determination of policies and the selection of a trained execu- tive known as the City Manager. To the City Manager, carefully schooled to his pro;ession, is en- trusted all of the executive work of the city.. The result is efficient government. In fact, politicians-- except in Kansas City, Mo.--are the only obstacles to its adoption in all cities. And even they could be move:l by public opinion, as- suming, silly assumption, that pub- lic opinion could be aroused. The reason for Kansas City's failure, even with City Manager, brings us to the second article. PROPORTIONAL REPRESENTATION The article is "P. R. Thwarts Machine Politiciaus" taken from the Survey Graphic. It concerns itself chiefly with New York's re- cent adoption of Proportional Rep- resentation, the most scientific electoral device yet discovered. Under PR each group within a comnmnity is assured representa- tion in the council according to its strength in the community. It does away with unreal majorities and assures the presence in all deliberations of a vocal minority. The machinery is not particularly complicated, and it is effective. Cin- cinnati, Toledo, Hamilton, Boulder, Wheeling all bear witness to that. But Kansas City--like most of the cities of the nation--doesn't use the system. Again politicians are afraid of it. It is a syste m that doesn't submit to fixing, that nullifies machine voting, that does away with primary control, that insures representation of the bet- ter as well as the worse elements. All of which is reason enough for our not having it--in the eyes of the politicians. In the eyes of the public? Well nest of them don't know anything 'CHEOLET I ' |t.'.

The present Bishop of Lourdes, who is about to leave that See to become Arch- bishop of Lyons, announced that the aviation pilgrimage will be- come an annual affair and that, beginning with next year, it will be international. Seve aviation Generals, the President of the Acre Club of France, the Commander of the fam- ous Escadrille des Cigognes, and 350 aviators participated. Also present was General d'Amade, for- mer Commander-in-chief of the Army of the Orient. He took part in memory of his nephew, Father Bourjade, who died as a missionary in Oceania after serving through- out the war as an air ace. Cardinal O'Connell Marks Anniversary Boston.--Hts Eminence William Cardinal O'Connell, Archbishop of Boston, observed his thirtieth anni- versary as Ordinary of this See by presiding at a Solemn Memorial Mass for his predecessor, the Most Rev. John Joseph Williams, first Archbishop of Boston, at the Cathe- dral of the Holy Cross on Aug. 30. Catholic Press Exhibition Filmed Vatican City.--Before the close of the World Exposition of the Catholic Press, here this import- ant event was recorded in motion pictures which reveal the work of the Catholfc Press in the various countries. about the system. In most cities there are little groups wo'king for its adoption. But the people at large remain unmoved by it. The salvation of democracy may well lie in the use of improved methods of government, council- manager and PR among them: lt's time some one---even the Digest-- awakened more people to the fact. All of which omits the third of the articles--but we'll take that up at the next session.
