PAGE TWO i i i i i i i I ili l i I< 00ights of Columbus State Council By 3. P. Reynolds Six hundred councils and twenty-four jurisdiction filled forty per cent of their assigned quota, in the membership drive. Arkansas unfortunately was not listed among them, but we didn't miss it much; we made 34.4 per cent. The forty per cent was set as a mark to be reached by December 31, 1942, so too much wouldn't be left over for the New Year's work; making the going that much easier for those councils who are determined' to complete their quota before the dead-line Jtme 30th. What others have done we can do. There never was a time when solidarity among Catholic laymen was more necessary than now when organization and under- standing was more essential. Msgr. Sheen said when we have defeated Totalitarianism and barbarism there remains two great phil- osophies of life or idealogies: the secularist or senate view, and the Christian view. The first would attempt to build a new life on this earth, from a materialistic view, without the influence of re- ligious guides or moral standards. The second would make the Chris- tian ideal the guiding spirit, in which the individual man, con- scious of his natural and inalien, able rights, would yet realize his personal responsibility to an In- finite God, and govern his words, acts or omissions accordingly. Let's strengthen our lines and increase our number; let's make practical Catholicity dominate our individual lives, so that coopera- tive Catholicity. may mark the, ef- forts of our order, and become an influence and a power for good in our respective communities. Let's make the Knights of Columbus what it was intended to be, an ap- pealing and helpful means where- by . adequate expression may be given, to cooperative Catholic: thought and action, under the guidance of our Church. ,, : Arkansas State Council C K THIRD DEGREE COUNCILS NEWS ACTIVITIES IN THE" STATE OF ARKANSAS Council 812 Regular meeting of Council next Tuesday night, January 19th.

Whenever your Parish Priest announces a collection for the Seminary be sure to go the limit your purse will allow, for you can rest assured that God will reward you a hundredfold for what you have done for one of His Priests.

Chaffee Chaplains Receive Diocesan Paper From C.W.U. Altus. -- Chaplains at Camp Chaffee, Fort Smith, will bene- fit from a bit of "action" of the Catholic Women's Union of St. Mary's Church, Altus, with pay- ment of two subscriptions of The Guardian being sent to them. Financial Treasurer, Antoinette Thessing of the C.W.U., writes The Guardian this week and men- tions that the $2.00 check is to pay for two subscriptions for Chap- lains at Camp Chaffee. This work of the C.W.U. is another fine ges- ture of cooperation of the organ- izations in spreading the usefulness of the Catholic Press. The Guard- mn is useless in the Apostolate of the Press unless it reaches the reading public. Again, it is explained that The Guardian will be sent to men and women in the Service of Our Country anywhere in the world for only $1.00 a year. This reduc-i tion in subscription price only to! those in the Armed Forces, is to make it possible as well as to en- courage send'ing our diocesan paper to them when they need every spiritual contact possible.

(C)--"We are fighting that the spirit of brother- hood which we prize in this coun- try may be practiced here and by free men everywhere. It is our promise to extend such brother- hood earthwide which gives hope to all the world," President Franklin D. Roosvelt said in a Iet- ter to the National Conference of Christians and Jews, commending the observance of Brotherhood Week, February 19-28. The President's letter stated he was pleased with the slogan "Vie- tory for Brotherhood" for the ob- servance and declared: : "The perpetuation of Democracy depends upon the practice of the brotherhood of man. The Ameri- can conviction in war and peace i has been that man finds his free- dom only when he shares it with others. People of every nation, every race, every creed are able to live together as Americans on this basis." Listed among the sponsors of Brotherhood' Week are: His Em- inence William Cardinal O'Con- nell, Archbishop of Boston; the Most Rev. Thomas E. Molloy, Bish- op of Brooklyn; Alfred E. Smith, James A. Farley, Basil O'Connor and Philip Murray. Prof. Carl- ton J. H. Hayes, Ambassador to Spain, is one of th co-chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Na- tional Conference of Christians and Jews.

Evangelization Of Russia Discussed Lisbon. (E)--(delayed)--An arti- cle published originally in the Orthodox magazine pravo-Slav- nays Rouse of Slovakia, and sign- ed P. Perof, has attracted consid- erable attention because of sug- gestions made regarding the fu- ture evangelization of Russia. The author, who says his deduc- tions are based on personal con- tacts with Soviet citizens and Rus- sian prisoners of war in Germany, believe that Bolshevism has never succeeded in effacing the Russian national sentiment which is strongly stamped with orthodox conceptions of the world; and that the new Russia will be built only in the spirit of orthodoxy--an in- dispensable presupposition of civilization and the Russian State. As to the current attitude of the Russian people towards religion, M. Perof divides the population into three principal groups of quite different numerical import- ance. Into the first group, those who have not lost the faith of their fathers, he puts the great mass of the people, particularly the pea- sants. Anti-religious propaganda, he contends, has never succeeded in penetrating the depths of the Russian national soul. "The only thing that has been shaken," he writes, "is a naive and primitive faith in religious prac- tices, and the conventional expres- sion of religious sentiment which, too often, is confused' with true piety. "The religious foundation of Russia could not be destroyed be- cause--if for no other reason--it is older than orthodoxy itself. Be- Uef in opposing forces of good and evil and the final victory of good over evil; belief in punishment for all faults on earth itself and the recognition of a regu!ating power Pope's Christmas Message Mutilated By Axis Press Geneva. ()-- The Axis press badly mutilated the Christmas Message of His Holiness Pope Plus XII, omitting all mention of his condemnation of persecution and the glorification of the State, the newspaper Peuple, of this city, de- clares. The Geneva newspaper com- ments on the complete spiritual harmony between the utterances of th Pope and the Archbishop of Canterbury despite the difference of their religious opinions. Arkansas Boys Make Others Know We're Fine Folks Guardian Office. -- Father Ken- ney, chaplain at Camp Adair, Ore- gon, a few days ago wrote The 'Guardian asking if we could send !him our diocesan paper since he had a few Catholic boys from Ark- ansas in his camp. So, The Guardian began going to Chaplain Kenney in Oregon with the next issue. Of course, a letter to the chaplain asked for news about "our boys" in Oregon, and he writes this week: "A little later we might have scme news about particular boys from Arkansas, but in the mean- time we have one tall happy-go- lucky doctor from those parts with whom one gets an idea of how fine you folks are down in Arkansas. He is young--as most of us are--but he is tops."

This figure should make every Catholic proud that the Church is giving so much for defense of America. It proves, once again, that Catholics not only can be both good citizens and good Catholics, but that properly edu- cated Catholics must be good citi- zens, for the Church rightly teach- es that patriotism is a virtue.

Bergman, Gerald Malin, Joseph Kaufman, Fred Muller, Roy Cain, James Naming Of Spanish Bishops Significant Vatican City. 0D-- The recent nomination of five new Bishops for Spain is regarded here as a most significant event in connec- tion with Vatican-Spain relations whose functioning was complicated after the June, 1941, agreement re- garding the naming of Bishops and the protecting of the rights of the Holy See. This agreement re- quired prolonged preliminaries to practical application. The latest nominations are seen as a hopeful sign for the early provision for the 15 Spanish dio- ceses remaining vacant. The new Episcopal nominations are: Bishop Gregorio Modrego Cas- aus, Apostolic Administrator of Cuenca, to be Bishop of Barcelona; Bishop Francisco Barbado Viejo, Bishop of Coria, transferred to the Diocese of Salamanca;; Canon Rafael Garciay Garcia de Castro of Granada to be Bishop of Jaen; the Rev. Ramon Navarri, Secre- tary of the Military Vicariate, to be Bishop of Urgal, and the Rev.
