Celebrant of the Mass was Fr. P. S. Wyles, of Wolverhampton, son of Chief Inspector Wytes. officer in charge of the Summons and Warrant Department of Victoria Courts, Birmingham.
Archbishop Masterson prea hing. expressed the hope that Bir Mgharn's police would never be 4alled upon, like the police in certain ther countries, to carry out orders contrary to the law of God.
