Members and other friends of the Civil Service Catholic Guild, to the number of about a hundred, met at the Waldorf Hotel last Monday evening on the occasion of the annual dinner and dance. In the unavoidable absence of the Archbishop of Westminster, the Rev. M. Feery, the Guild's Ecclesiastical Assistant, deputised for His Grace as chairman.

The toast of the Guild was proposed by the Bishop of Lamus, who was thanked by Fr. Feery for his speech, an address in which his Lordship emphasised the necessity for reliance, by Catholics, upon bedrock principles in order that they might be able to explain the faith that was in them. Dr. McGee, of the Ministry of Health, proposed the health of the Guests, a toast acknowledged by Mgr. Canon Bickford, V.G.; and the chairman's health was proposed by Mr. H. C. Thornton, C.M.G., C.V.O.

Among the many clergy present were Mgr. Canon Evans, the Rev. W. Donovan, and the Rev. W. A. Pritchard. The prominent Civil Servant members of the Guild at the dinner included: Sir Percy Ezechiel, K.C.M.G., Miss Bonar, Mr. B. Grindle, C.B.E., Mr. W. T. Fitzgerald, Dr. E. L. Sturdee, Mr. Dudley Ward, Mr. J. Milbanke-Hamilton, M.B.E., Mr. D. Shine, and Mr. J. C. Stibbs,
