of the Tate Gallery and chairman of the Cathedral Art Commission, examine the statue of Our lady of Westminster which was blessed in the Cathedral yesterday, the Feast of the Immaculate Conception.
The valuable alabaster statue which has been set up near the 13th Station of the Cross, is intended to revive the ancient and royal devotion to Our Lady formerly honoured in Westminster Abbey and Westminster Palace under the title of Our Lady of the Pevve.
The 254th Custos
FR ANGELICO Lazzeri, an Italian Franciscan, has been solemnly received in Jerusalem as the new Custos (('ustodian) of the Holy Land. Ile is the 254th priest to hold this office, vvhich by tradition belongs to the Franciscan Order.
He has under his jurisdiction more than 400 Franciscan priests and brothers, who have in their care 68 shrines, 70 friaries, 85 parishes, 29 schools, five colleges and three orphanages.
The Ladykillets (LI) ALEC GUINNESS performs something of a miracle in keeping the character of the 'professor' from degenerating into caricature, and only when the raid, so dexterously stagemanaged in its opening phase, disintegrates does he betray a sort of incipient madness. His despatch in the final shots is a brilliant stroke of directorial contriving.
