A CONSULTATIVE body of -1-1Tour Catholic laymen has been appointed to advise Cardinal Griffin on the decoration and adornment of Westminster Cathedral. They are:
Prof. H. S. Goodhart-Rendel, former President of the Royal Institute of British Architects and of the Design and Industries Association, and President of the Guild of Catholic Guild of Artists and Craftsmen;
Sir John Rothenstein, Director of the Tate Gallery; Prof. Thomas Bodkin, Professor of bine Arts in the University of Birmingham, and Mr. Arthur Joseph Pollen, sculptor. eldest son of the late Mr. Arthur Hungerford Pollen. an authority on Naval affairs.
Sir John Rothenstein was one of the signatories of a letter to The Times last month in which a number of well-known Catholics and nonCatholics described the Cathedral as "a national monument" and criticised the artistic nature of the works at present being undertaken within it.
