(Fotograms.) o..----o..o.**.,.; * LISTENING IN * * By Autolycus * * o * * * a =*- Greetings* * * * * * * A Happy New Year to you. Cut out the foolish resolutions which you have broken year after year and which make no difference whether you keep them or not. The world will be no richer if you succeed in giving up smoking, or in keeping a diary, or in getting up at six o'clock in the morn- ing. These things will make very lit- tle difference to your own happiness and no difference at all to the happi- ness of the world. Resolve to be un- selfish in all your dealings, and the world will be as much better as one man can make it. Selfishness is the breeding ground of a multitude of sins. Ladder of Peace On their golden wedding day a man and wife declared that they had not quarreled during the whole of their married life. People who do not quar- rel among themselves do not quarrel among their neighbors. Neighbors whe do not quarrel among themselves pro- duce a harmonious city. If cities did not quarrel internally and externally, there would be no national quarrels. If nations did not ,quarrel there would be no wars. The man who quarrels with his wife, and the wife who quarrels with her man, are at the root of most of the trouble in the world today. You must have peace in your heart before you can have peace in the world. Metered Marriage You may not be married by radio. That is the decision of an attorney- general, given in response to a petition by a couple who wanted to stay in New York and be married by a clergy- man who would remain in San Fran- cisco. From the point of view of the contracting parties a freak wedding of this sort would have two advantages. It would produce the desired publicity, and it would afford the opportunity of inviting thousands to the ceremony without the inconvenience of having to provide them with the conventional marital meal. If you could be mar- ried by radio you would merely have to inform your friends that you in- tended to be wedded on a 350 meter wave length, broadcasted by station ZYX, and invite them to stand by. And I suppose that when, a few months later, you got tired of your novelty wedding, you would merely have to in- form the world that you were "signing off." The world is certainly moving. But unfortunately it is moving back-- wards. Go Whistlel The ignorance of the schoolboy who admitted that he had never heard of the Lord's Prayer is equalled by that of the Scottish highlander who prided himself upon his ability to play any tune on the bagpipes, and one Sunday morni,g went out and disturbed the Sabbath with his wail. Presently the minister came along, and going up to MacDougall with the intention of reprimanding him, asked in a severe voice: "MacDougall, do you know the Ten Commandments ?" Sandy scratch- ed his chin in some perplexity and said: "D'ye think you've beat me? Just whistle the first three or four bars, and I'll have a try at it." Futile Folly "Hoarding for grandchildren has been proven a futile folly." said Car- dinal O'Connell in a striking address at Boston. You have but to look around you to see the truth of this. In a sense it is not very complimentary to your offspring to think that they need a vast fortune to give them a start in life. You probably blazed your own trail, and you know you are a better man for having done it. There have been few really great men m families which have been wealthy for .two generations. There is no effort where there is no ambition, and no am- bition where there is no incentive. When God has given you enough for your own life, and enough to give your children a good start, He h I been generou to them. And if your children merit His generosity He will be generous to them. If you devoted something from your surplus to the furtherance of His work (by aiding The Catholic Extension Society, for instance}, you would be rendering to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's. LIBRARY OF BALTIMORE ARCHDIOCESE WILL BE HOUSED AT CATHOLIC U. (By N. C. W. C. News Service) Washington, D. C., Dec. : .--The library of the archdiocese of Balti- ! more, which has been housed in the archiepiscopal residence in Charles street for many decades, is to be transferred to the Catholic University 'for the purpose of facilitating the work of the members of the faculty and the students of that institution who are interested in studying and writing on various phases of church history. The library is to be replaced in the archiepiscopal residence by a Cardinal Gibbons' room in which will be kept books and treasures that were owned by America's greatest churchman. The treasures include gifts from several Popes and from other dignitaries. Among the books that will be trans- ferred to the Catholic University are included many rare volumes. One of them, which is printed from wood type, is of a date prior to the discov- ery of America. MAY FORM NATIONAL BODY FOR SPREAD OF SOCIAL TEACHING (By N. C. W. C. News Service) Chicago, Dec. 2 More than fifty prominent Cathogcs, representative of labor, capital and various schools of thought in the field of social service, will meet at the Loyola University School of Sociology On Friday for the purpose of discussing the organiza- tion of Catholics interested in indus- trial relations.
