THE GUARDIAN, JANUARY 6, 1934 Page Seven Cure at Lourdes De- scribed by Priest Who Was Gassed in War A Clipping Lourdes.--(NC)  The Medical Ureau 4j Lourdes has definitely '-onfirraed the miraculous and com- Plete cures of Father Lochet, of the Diocese of La Rochelle, .who was in an advanced stage of tuberculosis as the result of being gassed d.uring the orld War and was receiving 100 Per cent disability allowance, and of Aehille Billiet, of Amiens, who had had a running sore for 14 years,. Father Locho was pastor at Bus- mc-les Saintes when the war began t 1914. He first served with the Red Cross then was transferred to the tenth regiment of artillery. He was gassed first at Arras in May, 1915, and that fall in the Champagne gecter. He has suffered from hem- 0rrhages beginning after the first gassing and by June 17, 1917, had been retired from the service with disability determined as 35 per cent. ttis condition steadily grew "worse and, in 1928, h was permitted to leave the hospital at Clermont, a hopeless case, to return to his native La Rochelle. In September, 1929, he made a pilgrimage to Lourdes and on the morning of October 7, when he was about to leave Lourdes for Clermont convinced that his death as only a question of a few days, e felt impelled to make the Way of the Cross. "Qod alone knows how I did i," Father Lichet said. "It took rae almost half a day." "Returning from the mountain," he continued, "I stopped at the Grot- to to say a last prayer before taking the train. I was chilled and literal- ly drenched with perspiration .... A brancadier me  spring, urged to bathe in The plunge into water made me scream; the effect was al- most more than I could bear.. • I told the brancadier that I was about to die... 'A one-armed priest, also a war veteran, cavae to his assist- lance' and I was removed from the i water and dressed." It was while these two priesc-vet- e rang, chance acquaintances, were 8.rated on a bench a few minutes; that Father Lecher experienced a: nsation like an elictric shock after which he discovered that# he bu'Ic breathe deeply, shout, laugh irid sing; that ,he ;could even walk Mthout a cane. Although not a day iad passed since May, 1915, without !n xpecaratIo "of' blood, he has lever had the slightest trace of hem- rrhage since October 7 1929. He injoys perfect health and is active- Ly engaged in his ministry. Achille Billiet was 13 years old When war was declared .and was liv- ing: with his family at Noyelles-les- :rermelles, Pas de Calais.

While these will be discussed in the vernacular of appro- priations and taxes very largely, the legislative attitud toward such fun- damental questions as the redistribu- tion *of wealth ,the levelling off of social advantages, the improvement of the conditions affecting the work- er, the lifting up of submerged classes and the bettering of their liv- ing environment will, in a measure, be disclosed. There is not much doubt, :at the moment, @hat this general attitude will be. Congressional leaders as- sert that the tide is still floing in the direction of Administration po- licy carryirg the "new deal" on its appointed course. It is much more a question whether Congress will stand by nd allow the President to handle the helm or insist upon di- recting the c'ourse of the "new deal" to farther ends. Collective Bargning Already the announcement has been made by Senator Wagner, of funds for this purpose. The ,serious- ness of the school situation has been especially emphasized by the Office of Education of the Department of the Interior. Whether such relief, if granted, would extend to private or parochial schools may be doubted, although, from the viewpoint of relief alone, they may be said to stand on the same #ooting. Trades Union Anti-Nazi Boott President Green's manifesto to trades unionists throughout the coun- try to join in  boycott of German goods in' protest against the suppres- sion of labor organizations by the Nazi Government, is regarded in Washington as a serious blow at that regime. The economic effect might be slight, but the political compli- cations resulting from this action will add to Germany's perplexities. This is based on the assumption that a hostile labor attitude will be reflected in congressional sentiment and that the Nazi Government will suffer a loss of prestige accordingly in the event that any question in- volving Gcrman-AmericazŁ relations arises. The declaration of the federa- tion is regarded as an indication of the inevitable conflict between' democracy and autocracy. For the same reason the. federation has opposed the forcible regimenta- tion of labor in Russia, but not with much effect upon the policy of the United States. U. S.

Father McOormick was born in CHRISTMAS SIGHS TO OUR LADY Sweet Mother, toniglt all the world is aglow With its beautiful Christmas lights-- And stories are told of the long, long ago, Of songs from celestial heights; Of ang'els who sang over snow-covered plains Their message of peace brought to earth; Of slmpherds who knelt at the heavenly strains, That told of a Savior's birth. Three kings from the East who had come from afar To find the Messiah, their King, Led on by the light of a wonderful star, Their spices and gold to Him bring. And ahl dearest Lady, the story is sweetl It thrills ev'ry heart when 'tis told. 'Tis one that with tenderest love we repeat 'Tis one that will never grow old. And yet, in the midst of its beautiful strain I'm thi,nking, sweet Lady, tonight And yet, in the midst of its beautiful strain Of you, Dear young Mother, what suff'rng and pain Were yours on that first Chris tmas night! In cold and i,n poverty, beautiful Queen, You patiently, silently wept-- The angels, I'm sure, must have mingled their tears With yours, while their virgil they kept. You must have been painfully weary that ight And yet when your journey was o'er, The Virgin who carried our Savior, and God-- Sought rest on a rough, stable floor. Ye, all uncomplaining you welcomed each pair A,nd Mother-love gentle and pure," That man through your Infant salvation should gain Was willing all grief to endure. Dear Mary, how gladly I'd offer my bed Your poor, aching body to rest--- And if my own pillow could nestle your head 'vould seem I were wondrously bles. And ahI with what fondness I'd whisper to you 'Twould seem I were wondrously blest. When Jesus at length had been born, I'd sayi "Let me hold Him, sweet Virgi, n, please doI Pressed close to my heart He'll be warm!" That tiny wee Formfrailand helplessly weak Lay near you and cried in th- cold; You kissed every tear as it fell on His cheek, Ah! who could your heartache have told! Poor, tender young Mother, I'm sure that you still Watch down from your heavenly height, O'er Bethlehem's slumbering valleys and hills And think of that first Christmas night. Atone M.

Oory, head of the liberal arts :department of the Uni- versity of Washington, the noted educator declares in an article ap- pearing in The Catholic Northwest progress. Dr. Cory made his profession of faith and was baptized a Catholic in St. Joseph's church, Seattle, on Sep- tember 28, 1933. The 'Rev. James McG, oldrick, S. J., a former student of Dr. Cory, administered the sacra- ment of Baptism. In the article, entitled ",Science Draws Near to the Source of Truth," Dr. Cory elates that after losing serious interest in the ,Congregation- alism of his youth, he strove to "re- build" his religious belief. "But cur- iously enough," he writes, "just as they say that the darkest hour eomes 'before the dawn, from that very time my faith began to renew itsef, very slowly and timidly, and in a very vague and heretical sort of way, be- cause as a matter of fact I began to find my faith again, if as that "nothing in nature remains alone; that it cannot remain aone." 'Then we tur from science to the Bibe, and we remember that St. Jiohn the Divine said that God is love," he adds. "Are not those two statements --the statement of St. J'ohn and the statement we get from science--at least parallel? We should .say, then, that science is really describing a world that we cannot believe in un- less it is saturated with divinity." Particles Have Freedom Physicists of today, says Dr. Oory, in contrast with the early mechan- ists, are telling us that there is con- "freedom" i.n " the behav- ior of photons of light and wireless" and that the particles of matter "have a certain variety of possibili- ties of motion withiw certain par- ticular limits." "Science and relig- ion," he adds, "both assert that we are determined, that we are crea- tures ,of circumstances (under obedi- ence to God, as religion would sa,): but both recent science and religion teach that we are determined only in a broad way, that, though we are thwarted in many ways, yet we are allowed vith broad limits a great deal of freedom of choice." "Science itself," he writes, "is teaching us te do precisely what the Catholic Church has long taught us to do--to reject either the doctrine that believes that nothing exists but matter, or the doctrine which believes that nothing exists but mind or soul, or the dualistic doctrine which be- lieves that both matter and soul exist, but that they are absolutely distinct from each other. ,Science is aski'ng us to believe, just as does Roman Catholicism, the dualistic doc- trine which tells us that there are, to be sure, both matter and mind or soul, but that they are very intimate- ly connected at least for a long per- led. And the doctrine of the Resur- rection fits in, curiously enough, with this, because the doctrine of the Resurrection tells us that our mind and body are reun'ited." ,Ask Fir Genuine ADD TO GAS & OIL SAVES MOTORS Lubricates Safely Where Oils Burn, Freeze and Washes Away.
