It is I well-to look at the bright side betimes I and take a more hopeful view of I things and we know of no more en-] couraging words on this subject than an editorial taken from the current number of the Columbiad as follows: "May day passed and the Republic went on its orderly way.

In America, we were to be treat- ed first to a general strike. Then, with production and transportation paralyzed, we were to be granted the benign blessing of armed revolt, seiz- ure of all means-of production and al- ticles of consumption, release of im- prisoned criminals, destrnction of all signs of debt and ownership, blowing up of barracks, murder of police and an end to the State and to religion. "Throughtout the country radicals of every type have learned at first hand the meaning of strong Demo- cracy. Hundreds have been caught in the various 'headquarters' of the va- rious radical organizations that have planned to obey Lenine of Russia. A number have been held for legal steps toward deportation. Government agencms have been critic, sod for fail- ing immediately to expel all suspects. The criticism has appeared in con- servative journals, and has not always] been couched in terms that recognized ] the care with which the due processes I of law must be carried out. I "In spite of the bomb, plot of last spring, in spite of the intrusion of ar- rant radicals into the decent organiza- tion of American labor, in spite of the newer asso.ciation of communists, financed by wealthy faddists of this country and inspired by the Bolshevist regime in Russia (which was original- ly 'made in Germany'), Bolshevism canont thrive here. "There is a balance in this country again:st such wild movements. The balance is the American people, the soldiers who volunteered and the sol- diers who accepted the draft, to fight for their country; the men and women who gave their time and their energy at home to financing the war and cav- ing for, the welfare of the soldiers and sailors; the men and women who worked with sturdy industry that the munitions of war might be made and shipped to our forces overseas, and the men and women who put their faith and their money behind the Gov- ernment. The balance, in other words, consists of the millions of sensible people who accept the burdens of the age, who are willing, nay, eager, to make their way in a land where free- dora means, not licensed violence, but equality of opportunity. "These millers are the very bul- wark against all radical tendencies. These millions furnish the evidence that no chance of Bolshevik success exists in this country. These millions have proved the fatuity of radical dreams of violence, by their' patriot- ism, which in peace as in war is hardy and steadfast." Our Sympathy While, the visit of the Angel of Death to a home is always sad yet it ieems still sadder around the Christ- mas time, when all are looking for- ward to that joy associated with the birth of Christ. It is therefore with these feelings we extend to Brother S. J. McNeil and family our deepest sympathy, for during last week death called to her eternal reward his little daughter. We hope that the bereaved morn. A Great Lo$s After many months of illness Bro. P. J. O'Brien pasesd to his reward on Christmas Eve. He w'.s a charter member of our Council, and one of the first 12 Knights to take the Fourth Degree at Nashville a few years later. During his association with our Order he always took a deep interest in all our affairs. He was one of our first Trustees and held this office for nine years, during which time he discharg- ed the duties of this important office with scrupulous care. His loyalty shall always be a cherished memory to all who knew him. Words are inadequate to express the deep sense of loss we feel at his death and may his bereaved family be con- soled in the knowledge that after a long and useful life he went to his reward with every token of esteem and love which go to crown'a noble life.

It will be an important meeting and every Sir Knight should be present to get in line with the work now con- templated.

DETAILS OF BISHOP FOLEY'S DEATH IN THE PHILIPPINES Ky., Callcl From a Life of Pious Activity in Behalf of the Orphans a,d the Sick--Worthy Priest and Cultured Scholar. Louisville, Ky., Dec. 20.-- Fa- ther Deppen, the editor of "The Record," died Monday morning at 6:30 o'clock, the 15th of December. For years he had been afflicted with heart trouble; he bore up under his ailment with so much Christian A Mill Hill priest in the Philippines, writing of his late beloved Bishop, the Rt. Rev. Maurice P. Foley, states that the Bishop, after being taken on a "coast guard" to Manila by the Apt)s- tolic Delegate, Msgr. Petrelli, relnain- et in the St. Paul hospital two months before the end came. We quote the writer, Father Regan: "The Apostolic Delegate was kind- hess itself: Everything possible was, done to save the poor Bishop. The best doctors in Manila, the best nurses, were engaged--all to no avail. Bishop Foley had done his work. And God called him. He received Holy Com- munion several times from the hands of the Delegate. On Sunday, August 3, he died. "The body was embalmed and taken to Iloilo on the weekly steamer. The Apostolic Delegate went along on the boat. Literally thousands of people waited on the waterfront to meet the remains and escort the body in pro- cession through the streets of Manila and on out to Jars. It was all most grand and solemn: the procession stretched well over a mile. "For a day the body lay in state. On Tuesday, August 12, the Apostolic Delegate sang a Pontifical Mass of. Requiem. There were crowds of peo- ple present. Every class was repre- sented. The absolutions were duly given, ,and the body lay in state until evening, when it was given interment in the Holy Rosary Chapel in the Jars Cathedral, opposite the grave of Bishop Reeker. "The people were much impressed. Bishop Foley was well loved. He worked especially hard at the paro- chial school system. Poor man. His sojourn in Jars has been short.

In his school years he early identified himself with the school papers, laying the foundation for his future editorial work, and his clear-and graceful literary style. He was probably one of the oldest, and undoubtedly among the most devoted members of the St. Vincent De Paul Society, entering into its work of char- ity as a young man of the Cathedral congregation with that zeal that characterized all the years of his long life. During these years he came into intimate touch with the clergy of his day, and it was with evident affection for them that he delighted to discourse of Bishop (aftelvards Archbishop) Spalding, his brother, Father Ben Spalding, and the other priests of the city active about the time of the Civil War.

There is scarce Who is not full of joy when a Feast of Our Lady comes round--- those bright days that strew the year with star? It is as if the Church called us to leave the noise and dis- traction of the world, and walk by the shore of some calm, majestic lake, in whose unruffled and translucent depths are imaged the mountains of Divine Perfection!--Father Faber. EFFICIENCY (Continued from Page 1.) could of the needs of St. Vincent's. She said that never in the history of America were nurses so badly needed as now. There are many causes res- ponsible for the scarcity of nurses. Many died overseas while in service, a large number were permanently dis- abled from their work over there, and there are still many serving as yet in the army and navy. The public can only look to the nurses training schools throughout the country as a source of new supply. She said that it is pertinent that suitable quarters be provided, including separate build- ing and individual rooms and recrea- tion arranged for that the nurses may be comfortable and have opportunity for proper rest. Otherwise the nurses cannot help but be poorly trained, and the public, as usual, has to pay for the poorer service. Without pro.per equip- ment, good quarters and care, the nurses cannot do their best work and receive the training they should have. The training period is an arduous one, and the nurses who are on duty for many hours at a stretch, need relaxa- tion and sleep, which is hard for them to obtain when they are forced to room in the hospital building itself. The nurse becomes physically tired and mentally weary, and in this important work for humanity, every opportunity should be given her, that she may re- new her strength and mental equili- brium for further labors. As soon as the new nurses' home and training school is built, a large number of beds now occupied by the nurses and the Sisters, will be liberated for patients and the present nurses' class room, which is now much overcrowded, can then also be utilized for the accommo- dation of more patients. Reason for General Call. Adequate bed accommodations have need to embolden the printed page with the announcement that the rooms and service at St. Vincent's have been or ever are to be restricted by the test of creed or pocket b$ok. Its hospital requisitions of habitation and ministra- tion have been always under the man- agement of the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth. Little Rock and Arkansas has known this for the past thirty years, and the Infirmary record of these years attests the appreciation of this colnmunity as a body civic, ready to award merit where merit is due despite the blast of bigotry as an ad- vertising catch medium now being em- ployed by the narrow, few, always 'in- tent on a Christian (7) religious de- nomination. St. Vincent's Record. Little Rock knows it. Arkansas knows it, and it stands today an insti- tution of need striving for 30 years to fulfill that need to the limit of its re- sources. Its ever crowded condition has told us, without printer's ink, that Little Rock and Arkansas needed more accommodations, better and more ef- ficient service, if the community was to be progressive along.the lines of mod- ern surgical and medical administra- tion. St. Vincent's Plans. While no authorizedconcept or plans of future constlxletion to remedy the wants of the Infirmary, have been pro- mulgated by hospital staff or Sisters, it is in the minds of those upon Whom this responsibility rests to give to our community a larger and more perfect building, wherein the work so success- fully perforlned for a generation may be perpetuated for the generation to come, under the most efficient service i nthe relief of thehuman ills bound to come to ourselves and neighbors. Premature plans, designating the ca- pacity and distribution of the area of the contemplated addition to St. Vin- cent's Infinary is but the publicity blast of those who would limit the gen- eral subscription fund, as they would been wanting to the sick and infirm Little Rock and its dependent com- munities, not for the past five or six years, not for the past 30 years, but ever since our city began its active growth as the center and capital of our State.

Ten of the good work of this institution if it was left to their biased disposition. St. Vincent's is before the public, and its publicity comes from its "good works" for all during the past, and its "good intentions" for the future, in correspondence to the good will of the people of Little Rock, as will be mani- fest in the success of the present cam- paign for a $300,00 helping fund.

He was ordained a priest on Christmas Day, 1878; thus in a few days he would have celebrated his forty-second Ghristmas in the Priesthood. His copious and tender editorial comments, as the happy day of our Lord's birth recurred, were inspired to a degree also by the memory of the day on which he himself was given the power to bring the Lord down upon the Altar.

It is almost too trite to add that Fatber Deppen's death is a hard blow for the cause of Catholic journalism -enerally, and that the Diocese will feel keenly its own loss in having to part with his furtJher c.o-operation on earth. Father Deppen is assured of the prayers of the little orphans of our Diocese for whom he toiled a life- time, of the Xaverian Brothers, whose chaplain he was for years, of the Ursuline Sisters, having been their Ecclesiastical Superior, of the various congregations he served so faithfully, of the Sisters of Charity among whom he (tied, of his brother-Priests for his efforts in urging his readers to pray for them.
