From a C.H. Reporter W HEN Bishcip Myers began the 10.3(1

Mass in Westminster Cathedral on Sunday, the vast nave provided a scene of colour and animation unparalled in wartime. Every place was filled and the aisles at the rear were tightly packed with men and winner,.

The Services were there in strength, and I saw airmen from Canada, Australia, and South Africi. and soldiers of almost every Allied nation scattered among the huge congregation.

In special places near the sanctuary sat distinguished diplomatists of Belgium, Holland, Luxembourg aed Yugoslavia; of Norway, Greece, Poland and Brazil., Prominent by his great stature stood General de Gaulle, side by side. with the Netherlands Prime Minister in the front row. Evident also were Mr. Ernest Bevin (for Mr. Churchill), and Sir John Monk (for Mr. Eden), with Mr. Biddle, U.S. Ambassador to Poland.

It was a picture of solemnity well befitting the occasion; and the brilliant sunlight after the night's rain splashed the whole interior of the cathedral with gold.
