(K).--Just as an- cient dictators caused severe hard- ships to the Holy Family and made the Saviour, His Mother and St. Joseph "refugees" without a home for a time, today modern tyrants have broken up millions of peace-loving families, the Most RoY. John J. Mitty, Archbishop of San Francisco, said over the radio here Saturday night. Speaking in the third annual Catholic Family Program, broad- cast over Station KPO under the auspices of the Catholic Men of the Archdiocese, Archbishop Mitty recalled that the dictator, Caesar I Augustus, "in ordering a census !of the whole world, forced Mary and Joseph to travel from Naz- areth to be enrolled in the city of their fathers, Bethlehem of Ju- dea." "For poor folks like Mary land Joseph," he added, "there was no room in the inn or in the homes of the inhabitants of Beth- lehem, and the Saviour of the world was born, not in His Own house with its meager comforts, but far from home in another's stable. "It was another dictator, King Herod of Palestine, who, hearing from the Magi of the new-born King of the Jews and fearing a rival for his crown and throne, made refugees out of the new- born Babe and Mary and Joseph; in the middle of the night they had to flee to a foreign land and for years live as aliens and refu- gees far from their kinsfolk and home and the altars of their temple." Archbishop Mitty said "for the past few years, millions upon mil- lions of peace-loving families in Europe and Africa and Asia have been broken up, separated, tortur- ed, sacrificed and martyred." "Homes, churches, and cities have been bombed and' destroyed," he said. "Men, women and children have been exiled or starved or savagely slaughtered or subjected to the most horrible tortures in concentration camps--all to satisfy the whims of modern dictators who respect neither God nor man." The C. K. of A. wants the names of all of its men and women mem- bers of our Order who are en- gaged in the military service of the United States. I therefore re- quest all recording secretaries in Arkansas to send to the C. K. of A. Journal at Cincinnati, Ohio, the names, titles, and branch of military service of all of the mem- bers of their branches so that they can be published in the jour- nal. Let me also call the attention of all branch officers to the fact that The' Guardian is willing to publish the C. K. of A. news items from the various branches in our news column of this valuable pa- per. This cooperation on the part of The. Guardian is greatly ap- preciated, and it is my hope that some C. K. of A. news will ap- pear in The Guardian each week. British Bishop Warns Of Hasty 'War Weddings' London. {E. -- Declaring that hasty war weddings often "lead to utter misery," the Bishop of Salford, the Most Roy. H. Mar- shall, said in an interview "they follow a rapid courtship and the couple often do not realize the implications." Girls, the Bishop said, are mar- rying fighting "men a snatch of sentiment and with a vision of glamor and with no regard to the future." But he added, so long as the law permits then there is no way of putting a stop to these marriages, "which spread misery and perplexity." Fine Arts Trio in Concert At Mt. St. Mary's Academy Little Rock.--Mt. St. Mary's students and faculty were enter- tained last Wednesday afternoon, with a concert presented by the Fine Arts Trio, a group of N. B. C. artists, under the management of Eleanor Randall Norton. Orlin Witcraft, tenor and mem- ber of the Chicago Civic Opera Company, sang "Chi Gilida Man- ins" from the opera "La Boheme" ! by Puccini, "Ay Ay Ay," an old: Creole folk song, and "Serenade" from the "Student Prince." As his Chaplain 6iven Scapular Faculties ' New York. (EL--All regular, re- serve and auxiliary Army and Navy chaplains, as of November 1, 1941, have been granted special Scapular faculties for their work with service men, it was announc- ed by the Very Roy. Gabriel N. Pausback, American Assistant General of the Carmelites and Founder-Director of the Scapular Militai. Individual booklets announcing and explaining the new faculties will be mailed gratis to each chap- lain. With every booklet will go one of the Scapular packets now being distributed free by the Scapular Militia to all Catholic service men. Hitherto, many chaplains could enroll only in the Brown Scapular of Our Lady of Mount Carmel and admit to the Scapular Confrater- nity. Now, in virtue of the special faculties granted to them individu- ally by the Very Roy. Lawrence D. Flanagan, Prior Provincial of  the Carmelites in New York, they can also commute the obligations of the so-called Sabbatine Privi- lege. (The Sabbatine Privilege is the pious belief, sanctioned by the Holy See, that those who have worn the brown scapular, ob- served chastity according to their state, abstained from flesh meat on every Wednesday and Satur- day or daily recited the Little Of- fice of the Blessed Virgin Mary, or faithfully observed some other such work, and otherwise led a virtuous life will after death par- ticularly profit by the intercession of Our Lady, especially on Sat- urday, the day consecrated' in her honor.) Explaining the special reason for conferring the extra faculties on the chaplains at this time, Father Pausback declared: "Chastity is one of the virtues most endangered by military life. Common experience and common hearsay are but confirmed by the reliable reports of immoral pro- phylactics being officially supplied in our training camps. Hence, Holy Church seeks solicitously to counter all such evil influences with the most powerful spiritual defenses. One the most effective of such defenses is the pious re- membrance of the Virgin Mother, especially when such remembrance is joined with a firm faith in Mary's Saturday promise. Since this promise requires for its ful- fillment the keeping of chastity according to one's state of life-- it does not mean that one is for- bidden to marry--it is hoped that easing the other commutable con- d'itions of the promise will make this added motivation more at- tractive and helpful to our service men." New Nazi Penal Code For Poles, Jews Enacted Washington O)--The Polish Em- bassy here has confirmed the re- port of a Nazi decree this year establishing a new penal code for Poles and Jews in the territories incorporated into the Reich. The Embassy said no details of the new code are in its possession. Reports reaching here from Lon- don, quoting Secretary of State Freesler of the German Ministry of Justice, state the Poles in the incorporated territory are depriv- ed by the new code of the usual rights of natives, that suspicion of a crime is declared sufficient for arrest without explanations, and that full liberty is granted Ger- man judges and prosecutors in sentencing Poles and Jews. Each Class in Quebec Schools to Have Library Quebec. IE).Each class in each school of Quebec province is to have a library, as the result of a decision of the provincial edu- cational authorities. From an available supply of more than 40,- 000 books, 40 books will be dis- tributecf to each classroom. Henceforth the Province will pay $5 a year for each class in leach school towards the purchase of new books, and the municip- ality will pay an equal amount. This arrangement will extend over a period of 10 years. There will also be a special reference library for teachers, but it has not been decided where it will be establish- ed. The pleasure of doing anything for a mother is half in the small- ness of the thing that pleases her. Honor is like the eye, which :annot suffer the least impurity without damage. It is a precious tone, the price of which is lessen- 'd by a single flaw.--Bossuet. encore, Mr. Witcraft sang a Negro spiritual, "Didn't It Rain." Miss Harriet Henning, soprano, radio singer, and also a member of the Chicago Civic Opera Com- pany, sang the "Waltz Song" from Gounod's "Romeo and Juliette," and the Bach-Gounod "Ave Maria," which she dedicated to the Sisters. Ralph Sunden, concert pianist and member of the Chicago Jun- ior Symphony, accompanied Miss Henning and Mr. Witcraft during their performances and played as solos, "Nocturne" by Chopin, "Spring Song" by Grieg, and "Liebestraum" by Listz. The finale consisted of Victor Herbert's "Little Gypsy Sweet- heart" and "Ah, Sweet Mystery of Life," duets sung by Miss Hen- ning and Mr. Witeraft. As an en- core, they sang together the patri- otic melody, "March On." Follow- ing this number, they requested the audience to join in the sing- ing of "God Bless America." The "Fine Arts Trio" is on tour of the Southern States, going from Mt. St. Mary's, where they their only engagement in Rock, to Arkadelphia and on int( Louisiana. Spanish Youth Leaders to Spread Social Doctrines Madrid. (EL--The social teach- ing of the Church as contained in the Encyclicals was the theme of the address made by the Most Rev. Leopoldo Eijo y Garay, Bish- op of Madrid, at the termination of the recent instruction course to Youth Front leaders. Bishop Eijo is spiritual director to the Frente de 5uventudes which embraces al- most all the students  of public and private schools, including the universities. The same day His Ex- cellency pontificated at the Mass of the Holy Ghost at which most of the leaders received Holy Com- munion. Bishop Eijo, in his address, laid heavy stress on social justice and the profoundly Chritian spirit which ought to animate the youths of the Falange. "Social justice," he said, "is the most important of the teachings in your charge. You must sow the doctrine of Christian reform for society in the economic order." Complete Doctrine "This," Bishop Eijo declared, "is the essence of our Movement. Fal- ange would not have elevated you to the dignity of instructors of Spanish youth unless you were found to be true Catholics; and you would not be good Catholics if you ignored the saving social doctrines of the Church." The Bishop also spoke of diffi- culties which will confront the Youth Front leaders in the ful- fillment of their mission: "When, in conforming economic liberal- sm, you are accused' of attacking sacred human liberty, you will say in the words of Jose Antonio, "We regard the individual as a funda- mental unit, because this is the thought of Spain where man has always been considered as the bearer of eternal values.' Man must be free, but liberty exists only within a determined order. In building a new order we, as occidentals, as Spaniards and as Christians, must begin with the man, with the individual." Nuns to Direct New Peru Public Hospital Lima. 00.--The Daniel A. Car- rion Hospital, built at Gallao by the Society for Public Assistance of the Capital, has been dedicated to and will be directed by the Sis- ters of Charity. A convent with chapel is a part of the edifice. The 1,200-bed hospital is named in honor of the student who sacri- ficed his life in the interest of science. He was inoculated with the autochtonal disease, Verruga Peruana I, Bertonelois, to prove that it was transmissible by in- oculation and to afford clinicial observance of the disease's de- velopment. Scottish Catholics Open Decent Amusementt Drive London. ().--Scottish Catholics are opening a drive to clean up current radio, stage and film pro- ductions. The Catholic Union of Glasgow has prepared a compre- hensive report, covering also in- decent literature, and is present- ing it to the Archbishop of Glas- gow, the Most Rev. Donald Mac- kintosh. The man that has gone down into the human heart and sounds the depths of its sorrows, and sympathized with its suffering in others, as Christ has done, is best fitted to bear his own cross when the hand of adversity pressed heavily upon him.

BILL SCHMIDT AUTO-PARTS & TIRE CO. * PARTS FOR ALL CARS - Vulcanizing - Retreading 808-310 Towson Ave. Dial 4147 Fort Smith, Ark. , I "V" For Victory Originated in 1492 By Catholic Queen Chicago. (E). -- The symbol, "V" for Victory in the present World War, was first inspired by Queen Isabella of Spain the year of America's discovery, William J. Dammarell, Chief Corporation Counsel of the State of Ohio and noted Cath- olic lay leader of the Midwest, declared in a lecture here. Isabella conceived the "V" symbol in culmination of the victory over the Moors in 1492, Mr. Dammarell said. "A huge armorial banner with the heral- dic device was affixed to the walls of the Cathedral and the University of Salamanca in Spain," he added. "The base of the design read: 'To Christ the King and Victor.' The cen- ter of the shield was quite simple, and without a field, in- scribed with the huge dominat- ing letter 'V.' This was the original 'V' for Victory crusad- ing slogan in the known Cath- olic history.:" Anniversary At St. Mary's For Msgr. Tobin Little Rock.--The anniversary of the death Rt. Rev. Msgr. Thos.
