The Lord Mayor of Birmingham, Alderman W. Marineau, M.C., has sent a letter of good wishes to the C.Y.M.S. which is responsible for the organisation of the rally of Midland Catholics in the Town Hall, Birmingham, this Coming Sunday afternoon.
" Christianity or Chaos? ", the theme for discussion at the rally, has attracted the attention not only of Catholics but a large body of other people. As a Catholic meeting, it also will be locally, unique inasmuch as one of the chief speakers is Professor H. G. Wood, recently appointed to the newlycreated Chair of Theology at Birmingham University. For some years he has presided over one of the colleges long established on the outskirts of the city by the Cadbury family. In his new task of combating secular thought and preventing an ingraining of paganism, he has received the sympathetic support of the Archbishop, Mgr. T. L. Williams.
The Archbishop will preside over the meeting, and the other chief speakers will be Professor Thomas Bodkin, Professor of Fine Arts at Birmingham University, and Michael de la Bedoyere, Editor of the
