K•C.S•G• for U.S. Film Censor Forty-eight-year-old "Purity" Breen, the United

States film censor, has been awarded the K.C.S.G. by the Pope.

Mr. Joseph Breen, a former journalist and industrial conciliator, has been " director of the production code administration " since 1934. As such he has pronounced on the morality of 500 feature films and 1,000 " shots " a year. Mr. Breen is the father of six children, and he says that to ensure decent films he is guided largely by what his family thinks.

Mr. Breen, at one time, was on the staff of the National Catholic Welfare Conference Bureau of immigration. He was also in charge of the publicity for the International Eucharistic Congress in Chicago, in 1926.
