The offerings include little statues made by the men themselves and medals won by airmen. The new picture around which the offerings are grouped has been blessed by His Eminence Arthur Cardinal Hinsley, Archbishop of Westminster, who also dedicated to the Sacred Heart all the Poles in this country. The Polish Army Ordinary, Bishop Joseph Gawlina, offered Mass on the occasion and the Pol- ish Army choir sang the music of the Mass.

All the traditional Polish cus- toms were observed after Mass, when a large party of Polish sol- diers, sailors and airmen took part in the ceremony of "breaking bread." They look for the appear- ance of the first star in the sky, and then they sat down to dinner at a table of which the cloth had been laid over hay, symbolizing the manger. Carols were sung and refugee artists provided music. The President of the Polish Re- public, M. Raczkiewicz, was at the gathering, together with General Sikorski, Bishop Gawlina, and others. Vatican Called Background To World's History St. Louis. (EL--The Vatican is the indispensable background to the history of the world, the Rev. Dr. Joseph B. Code, of Washing- ton, D. C., declared in an ad- dress at Fontbonne College here. Declaring that the present war is sufficient proof of the folly of tlmse who would "refuse to recog- nize the place of Christ and His Vicars in the plan of life," he noted that they "failed to see the implication of the banning of the Holy See from the Peace Table of Versailles and the League of Na- tions." "It is true," Dr. Code said, "that since the Lateran Treaty the Pa- pacy has achieved' a victory over the forces that would completely fetter the actions of the Pope. Be- fore and since then Sovereign Pontiffs have provided a positive program whereby the politics and economics of nations may again be brought into harmony with the teachings of Christ. Against this, however, have continued the at- tacks upon the Church which be- gan in appreciable force with the principle of private judgment of the sixteenth-century religious revolt. "Today we witness the disas- trous results of men's claim to decide for himself what is right and what is wrong. Rationalism, naturalism, the revolutionary dei- fication of humanity, Socialism, Communism, Fascism, Nazism, may all be traced to the undue glorification of human reason which characterized the theories of Luther, Calvin and the other revolutionists against the unity of the Church." Mrs. Uekman Heads St. Anne's Altar Society Levy.--Mrs. John Uekman was chosen president of the St. Anne's Altar Society at the recent elec- tion of officers. Others elected were: Mrs. A. Perrin, vice presi- dent; Miss Anna Hetntz, secretary and Mrs. M. Heintz, treasurer. On Sunday, January 25, the members of the circles for each month will be appointed.

Reynolds An unusual as well as very instructive and inspiring feature of the meeting of the Supreme Board of Directors of the Knights of Columbus, held in New Orleans, La., January 16, 17, and 18, was the open reception which preceded the executive sessions. State Deputies from adjoining states, including our own, represented by Bro. Albert C. Ernst, as well as other officers and members of the Order from Texas, Mississippi, Louisiana and Arkansas were present to greet the Supreme Officers and Board. The meeting was presided over by Supreme Director Wm. Guste of New Orleans, who presented the different officials and introduced the Supreme Knight as one of the principle speakers of the eve- ning. Supreme Knight Matthews in his usual eloquent manner re- called some of the outstanding features and highlights of the or- der's past, explained the import- ant improvements made in the K. of C. insurance system, that should appeal to men of ordinary means as a safe and inexpensive investment. He reviewed the growth of the order during the first six months of the present fiscal year and held out hopes for the attainment of the quota set, if all the councils continue to cooperate and con- tinue to work in the next six months as they have in the past lX. The meeling was honored not only by the presence, but also by the sound calm advice of the Archbishop of New Orleans. Arch- bishop Rummell in a slow, de- liberate manner, indicative of deep thought and mature judg- ment, spoke of this second world war as a more serious thing than a mere conflict between nations, even as horrible as that in itself is. He said it was not only a battle of tanks, and submarines and air- planes that left the land and the seas strewn with bleeding and dying bodies, but a conflict of ideas; a battle of principles that even endangered the soul. Only a Divinely instituted Church, with imperishable principles u p o n which to build' a future civiliza- tion can hope to bring some order out of the present chaos, and at no time in the history of the Church is organization more necessary than now. He plaaded with the Knights of Columbus to strengthen their ranks and to try and realize the need and import- ance of continued work and pray- er.

ACTIVITIES IN THE STATE OF ARKANSAS Texarkan Council Mr. Fred Sara, age 81, beloved father of Bro. John Sara, District Deputy of the Fourth Arkansas K. of C. District, died at his home in Texarkana, January 16. i No element of glamor marked his long and useful life here, but the more lasting and substantial qualities that indicate a true con- ception of life's purpose were his outstanding characteristics. He died as he had lived a fervent Catholic in humble submission to the will of God. Little Rock Council, No. 812 Mr. and Mrs. E. J. Pope, 400 Pearl Street, have received a let- ter from their son, E.
