(E).  Maj. James New York (E)--President Angels' Retreat Jonesboro.In keeping with the Feast of the Immaculate Concep- tion, December 8, and also with the birthday of the Sodality in Jonesboro, the Sodalists held their annual retreat, which was opened on the evening of December 7, with a conference and Benedic- tion of the Most Blessed Sacra- ment, and climaxed on the morn- ing of December 9, with the an- nual sodality breakfast. Throughout the retreat,:%he Rev. F. X. Murphy, retreat ma-ster and chaplain, held conferences in which he spoke on various topics which included, '"Children of M a r y," "Love," "Inseparable Twins," "Neglected Virtue," "Dan- ger Signals," and "Christ the Traveler." In his first conference Father pointed out to the girls that a re- treat meant complete silence, %hat a retreat consisted of two sub- jects, a retreat master and re- treatants, and that there are two parts to a retreat, meditation and prayer. Faher also said that he hope each girl would take some word or sentence from the retreat and meditate upon it. The confer- ence that was voted best by the girls was, 'Neglected Virtue," which turned out to be the virtue of Charity. Father said that we must have Charity in thoughts, Charity in words, and Charity in deeds. Marjorib Hock/e, Betty Ann Hopkins, and Bertha Mac Willett vcere appointed to read to the girls during each meal, from Not by Bread Alone, a book of pointed meditations just after a modern girl's needs and wants. Sodality Breakfast The Sodality Breakfast, which is an annual affair after each re- %rent was even more interesting and different this year, as the mothers of the Sodalists were guests of honor. The breakfast was held in the Academy auditorium, with the table and hall decorated in so- dality and school colors, gold, blue and white. The tables were center- ed with bowls of yellow chrysan- themums and placed at each in- dividual's plate was a miniature statue of the Blessed Virgin, Stella Matutina, and a small corsage of yellow chrysanthemums, given as favors. The Rev. W. J. Kordsmeier assumed his duties as toastmaster, and called upon the presidents of each class and officers of the so- dality, Marion Stemac, Prefect, Helen Cosby, Assistant, and Nor- ma Massery, Secretary, for a few words. Father Murphy also ex- pressed his appreciation for the cooperation of the Sodalists in making this retreat a successful one. Courtesy Holy Angels Echoes Left to right: The Rev. F. X.

"QUI VIVE?" (Continued from Page 1) ? who have skillful hands that are directed by a trained mind, the supply is not equal to it. Educa- tors can learn something from the present crisis if they are not too obstinate to do so. It is an ill wind that blows no- body good. Every clqud has e silver lining. In these war days, when a certain anxiety is bound to exist, it may be difficult to turn the dark clouds inside out. The immortal bard, Slkespeare, had the answer to the present i emergency, when he said, "Sweet are the uses of adversity, which, like a toad, though ugly and veno- mous, wears yet a precious jewel in its heard." The present period of scarcity can teach people a val- uable lesson. It is a good thing to check he selfish habits which have grown to be so much a part of every one's life is this coun- try. It is refreshing to be able to thrill, as did Mr. Churchill, at the presence of two eggs on  his breakfast plate. There has bee full and plenty of everything in this land. Those who couldn't pay cash could get things on credit. The poor man here has been liv- ing better than a king in Europe. There has been not only a chicken in every pot, as Republican candi- dates for the presidency have been wont to promise, but there have been comforts a.nd luxuries to the satiety of all. Even school chil- dren have had their weekly al- lowances and the use of the family car, without being asked to earn such privileges. Keeping up with the Joneses has become an Amer- ican habit.

Not only is there no waste of effort or facilities, but there is a positive and lavish expenditure of self and possessions. The blackouts made necessary by the Japanese attacks upon the Islands prevented Midnight Mass- es in the Philippines on Christmas Eve. Southern City Has First Municipal Crib New Orleans. (E).Through the instrumentality of the New Or- leans Archdiocesan Council of Catholic Women, New Orleans this year has its first municipal Christ- mas Crib. It is at the base of the monument to General Robert E. Lee in Lee Circle. A smaller Crib, also municipal, has been erected on the small park at Elk Place here and there are circumstances have had things, wlflch only the rich 8f former times could afford. The 0rdinaxy man has become obsessed with the Patrick Sinnott Devereux, who has been revealed as the com- mander of the small band of United States Marines that has captured the admiration of the world with its heroic defense of Wake Island against the Japanese, is a member of a distinguished Catholic family here in the Na- tional Capital. The family has long been identified with Blessed Sac- rament parish in the Chevy Chase section of the city, and Major Devereux is a member of that parish when his military duties permit him to reside here. The Navy Department, being unable to communicate with Wake Island for some days, has said that capture of this Pacific out- post by the Japanese was probable. The Navy revealed that fewer than 400 U. S. Marines under Major Devereux were engaged in the defense of Wake Island, a stand which outlasted the siege of the Alamo, and has been called "gal- lant," and "almost unbelievable." It is known that the 378 Marines repulsed at least three Japanese onslaughts over a period of two with the United States forces at weeks. It is believed vastly su- perior Japanese forces may have finally overpowered the tiny gar- rison. Major Devereux has a brilliant record in the Marine Corps. He l enlisted as a private and became nn officer in 18 months. ' Church a-  Theme Manila, P. I., according to a cable- gram received by Mother M.
