Monsignor Martin O’Connor, pastor of St. Peter’s Cathedral, was named auxiliary bishop for the Diocese of Scranton by Pope Pius XII. The news of the elevation was sent to the Most Rev. William J. Hafey, bishop of Scranton, by the Rev. A.G. Cicognani, apostolic delegate to Washington, D.C. O’Connor’s consecration was to take place sometime in early 1943. O’Connor was ordained a priest in Rome in 1925 and was appointed pastor of the cathedral in 1934.
Teachers, students, parents, members of the Abington Heights School Board and the public were in attendance for the dedication of the new Abington Heights High School. The school had been in use since the beginning of school year. The program featured musical selections by the school band and high school mixed chorus and a talk by Waverly native James A. Linen, president of Time Inc. Refreshments were served in the school’s cafeteria after the program.
Four hundred Scranton men and women registered and started taking tuition-free war industries training classes at Technical High School. The classes were run through the Pennsylvania State College. Students received training in courses to prepare them for a position with a company making products for the war effort. Students only had to pay for their textbooks. Course equipment and supplies were provided.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
