The photographic section in the June issue of the Westminster Cathedral
Chronicle continues to provide an
example of just how good this sort of work can be-if the pictures are studied and presented with appreciation. Here we have reproductions of Greco's St. Peter and Titian's John the Baptist, be sides quite beautiful architectural studies. The usual high standard of literary contributions is maintained.
Mr, F. W. Chambers continues his "Reminiscences in the current issue of the Southwark Record, a fine example of what a diocesan magazine can be.
The Don Bosco Journal, the first number of a Scottish publication, from
the Guild of Catholic Teachers, might well serve as a model, in layout and content, for those who will, we hope, start similar work in England. It is a monthly, priced at 6d., and edited by Mr. Frank MacMillan. Contributors include Mr. F. J. Shred, Mr. W. Barry, Dr. P. McGlynn, of Glasgow University, and Mr. John Durkan. The Catholic Voice, a digest, on a much higher plane than one expects in this class of publication, comes from Ireland. The June issue offers excellent fare, ranging from essays on historical, philosophical and literary subjects. Variety in contributions and dignity in presentation make The Ampleforth Journal, for May, attractive fare, even for those who have no direct attachment to the college. The photographs published are very good and among the most valuable articles the one on " Hugh Dormer's Diaries " is outstanding. The summer issue of The Ransomer contains an interesting article on the " Southwark Travelling Mission " by Fr. Philip Donnelly.
Augustine's Magazine, of the Abbey School, Ramsgate, has many
Interesting features of interest to old boys and for those interested in school sports.
The Pentecost issue of Magnificat contains articles by Fr. A. M. Roguet,
0.P., J. D. Crichton and the conclusion of a serial article on the " Mystical Theology of St. Paul." The June issue of Combat, a Y.C.W. publication, is cleverly edited and will be attractive to most intelligent young people. The cover is particularly welldesigned and there are contributions from Pat Keegan, Ted Trevillion and Tom Bryan.
