"FROM AMERICA

Always Something New"

From Our Own Correspondent NEW YORK,

Something defin i t el y new in Catholic publications has appeared in the new weekly, Youth, published as a supplement to Our Sunday Visitor.

The new magazine, boasting two colour printing, is, in general format and reading matter, very similar to the publications of the Jocistes, in particular the French-Canadian La, „Tem/ Ourrirre.

Credit for the new publiehing venture goes to Mgr. John Francis Noll, Bishop of Fort Wayne, Indiana, who planned the project and secured the cooperation of Catholic youth leaders and directors throughout the country.

Heading the list of youth leaders is the Rev. Vincent Mooney, C.S.C.. head of the Catholic Youth Bureau of the National Catholic Welfare Conference. Fr. Mooney has his own page in the new magazine.

Youth also carries a number of articles, features and short stories by authors well known to Catholic readers and known especially to young.Catholic readers.

The magazine represents the latest effort on the part of American Catholics to analyse the problems of American youth and solve them in a Catholic way. Youth problems in this country have increasingly drawn the attention of Catholic leaders, both clerical and lay, as is instanced in the establishment of the Youth Bureau at Washington. An American adaptation of the Jociste idea has also been started by the Rev. Donald Kanaly, of the Oklahoma CityTulsa diocese, who contributes a column to Youth. Fr. Kanaly recently took a delegation of American jocistee to Rome for the annual Congress, which has in the meanwhile been called off because of the war.
