Cardinal Hinsley opened the Catholic Book Fair in Westminster Cathedral Hall on Thursday afternoon, when Mgr. Goodier, Si., Archbishop of Hierapolis, gave an address.
The Fair closes at 8 o'clock on Saturday. Among the features are competitions in which visitors can win valuable prizes. The organisers are offering prizes for answers to a short test paper on the Catholic Press, and the Cantoetc HERALD is offering prizes of six guineas for the best slogan about itself in twelve words or less.
Among the attractions on the Carmen: HERALD stand and in the hall are the 150 photographs taken in Spain by our Spanish War correspondent, and a special signed portrait by General Franco; three largescale maps of the Spanish War, showing the military positions in 1936, 1937, 1938; a novel automatic book, specially lighted and constantly turning its own leaves, which contains information about the CATHOLIC HERALD; original drawings by Dom Theodore Baily, illustrating Fr. Martindale's Lives of the Saints; original cartoons; several French books for sale on the Missions and the Spanish War.
As a sign that the Ca-rHoeic HERALD stands for action as well as news, leaflets will be distributed containing " the letter to your M.P." to induce him to take notice of the unemployment problem in accordance with the Work-For-All Scheme.
