The ceremony began with the cutting of the ribbon by the Most Rev. Franz Hengsbach, Bishop of Essen in Germany, who flew in specially for the occasion. President T.C. Cheng of United College, in his opening remarks, thanked the Society of Jesus, the Maryknoll Convent and especially the people of Germany for their generous contributions towards the construction of the hostel. The President introduced the Director and the Directress of the Men's and Women's sections of the hostel, Rev. Father C.F. Kane, S.J., and Rev. Sr. Ann Carol Brielmaier. Bishop Hengsbach was then invited to unveil a plaque of Adam Schall, patron of the hostel. Addressing the assembly, Bishop Hengsbach expressed good wishes and continued interest of the people of Germany on this important occasion, and said that the opening of this first hall of residence is not only important in providing adequate housing for 250 students in crowded Hong Kong, but it is also a means of adding another important dimension to their student lives — that of learning to live together. 敎主伯思韓及敎主斌誠徐,長校敏卓李:右至左自 From left: Vice-Chancellor Choh-Ming Li, the Most Rev.
