When Dr. Stone had identified herself, Mrs. Pettengill made a statement from the chair ruling the discus- sion of birth control out of order. There was no objection. In making her ruling, Mrs. Pet- tengill said: "May I be permitted as chair- man of this meeting to make a statement at this time as chair- man of the Planning Committee? When the group of organizations here represented on the program entered into the planning of the program, it was with the distinct understanding that our considera- tions at this conference should be limited to the following subjects which I will try to state very ac- curatelybut you see I am just a lay person and you will have to let me think through them. "First of all there was the wel- fareI don't know whether it comes chronologically, but first in our thinking as mothers, par- ticularly, there was the thought of the new-born baby. There was also the thought of maternal wel- fare as it is concerned with preg- nancy, and postnatal care of the: mother. We understood when we l came into this voluntarily that our discussions would be limited to those subjects. Some of our or- ganiztions would not have enter- ed into this conference had we known of other aspects to be brought up. This morning another aspect was brought up and was referred to the group authorized to consider matters which others: outside of the planning group think belong in this conference, but which we have not entered on this program, and therefore are considered not germane to the subject of the conference. "As chairman of this afternoon's session, I claim my right to sug- gest that on behalf of those or- ganizations who came into this group with that understanding, for this session at least, I would rule this question out of order, if you will so permit me. I hear no objection." At the morning session a com- munication from the National Medical Council on Birth Control favoring contraception had been read from the floor and referred to a committee with the result stated above by Mrs. Pettengill. The conference on Better Care for Mothers and Babies was called by Miss Katherine F. Lenroot, chief of the Children's Bureau. 88 national organizations were repre- sented, among them being the Na- tional Council of Catholic Women. Plan New Study on Negroes Washington, Jan. 21. (.--A special advisory committee for the American Youth Commission, of which the Roy. Dr. George John- son, Director of the Department of Education of the National Cath- olic Welfare Conference, is a mem- ber, will make a study to de- termine "What Effect the Minority Racial Status of Negro Youth has Upon Their Personality Develop- ment," the Director cf the Ameri- can Council on Education an- nounces. The study will begin immediately. Consider the excess of our Lord's love for us, manifested in the sufferings of His Passion, and beseech Him to give us, not wis- dom or power, or great things, or high things, but simply the inter- ior dire, will and endeavor, to love His Divine Heart. Jonesboro, Ark. GREENHAW tional Broadcasting Company is produced by the National Coun- cil of Catholic Men. "Communism," declared Mon- signor Sheen, in summing up his address, "is Capitalism gone mad; or better still, it is rotted Capital- ism. And if you ever want a concrete proof that not even the Communists believe in Commu- nism where it has been tried, just offer to pay their expenses back to the Paradise of Russia in or- der that they might enjoy its so- called "liberty" and "democracy" and see how many will accept. Not even the Red Leaders in America will go. They prefer to enjoy our liberty in order to destroy it, rather than surrender it to live in the very slavery their own system has created." Not Alone in Protesting Declaring 'that Communism is not alone in protesting against injustices, and that we must not be fooled by believing that be- cause the protests of Cormumsm are right that therefore its reforms are right, Monsignor Sheen said that the proper way to judge a llatform is not by its negations, but by its affirmations. "Because demagogues say they hate the rich is not a proof that they love the poor; it may only mean that they envy the rich," he stated. Inequality of Privilege Monsignor Sheen declared that the reform suggested by Commt- nism is conditioned on the revolu- tionary overthrow of our gov- ernment and our civilization. Monsignor Sheen continued: "Apart from the chaos incident to the overthrow of the existing order, the Church points out two serious defects in the Communist ideal of Equality and the classless Class: (1) It purchases equality at the terrible cost of freedom; (2) It really does not destroy in- equality, but creates a new and worse kind, namely the inequality of privilege." That Communism in its attempt to destroy inequalities destroyed liberty Monsignor Sheen declared is proved by facts taken from a country where the Communist Party has been in power for 20 years: "(1) Under Communism there is no freedom of confessional lerty, that is, one may not carry on any kind of propaganda for religion nor teach religion to children in, groups of over three . . (2) There is no freedom of the press, freedom of speech, or freedom of assembly under Com- munism for Article 125 of the Soviet Constitution allows the use of the press which belongs to the State only on condition that it be used 'to strengthen the socialist system.' . . . (3) There is only one party allowed in Russia." Tried and Found WmUng "Under Capitalism," Monsignor Sheen said, "it is personal wealth that produces inequalities, under Communism it is the personal con- trol of that confiscated wealth which produces the new inequali- ties. The struggle for wealth un- der Capitalism thus became a struggle for power under Commu- nism." "Communism has been tried and found wanting," the speaker said. "It began as Communism, admits it has not established it, calls its system Socialism, but in fact it is State Capitalism. Thus it is that the system which begins by halt-" ins Capitalism takes over all its bad features and ignores its better ones." ABSTRACT COMPANY Established 1882 510 Main, Telephone 30 Jonesboro, Ark. If we reflect on what this life is really meant to be, a battlefield, in which the result of the strug- gle is a crown of eternal joy and glory, we shall "not be surprised that no perfect peace or ideal joy is to be found here. No one ex- pects ideal conditions of life on a battlefield. Bluff, and the Rev. Basil Egloff, O. S. B., of Shoal Creek, assisted the Abbot in the sanctuary.

The Seniors of St. Anne's academy last week had the pleasure and privi- lege of hearing two excellent speakers, both holding the atten- tion of the class in interesting talks. Mr. Greggson, State University, Fayetteville, discussed "Meeting the Changing Trends," and Mr. McDowell, president of the Bag- gett-McDowell School Supply Co., Oklahoma City, gave the pupils quite a detailed and enlightened view point on the system of the Federal Reserve Bank. Tests The first semester tests for '37- '38 were held last week and for three days the student body of St. Anners was strung to a very taut attitude of attention and concen- tration. Results are not known as yet as the report card will not be distributed until Wedensday. The second semester starts on Monday, February 24. Sodality Social ' On Friday evening, the social committee of the Student Sodality of St. Anne's, relaxing from the over work of examintion days, de- cided for a social which they car- ried out very successfully by giv- ing a dance in the auditorium of the academy. To excellent music furnished by Bobby Edelmann's orchestra about fifty couples trip- pod the "light fantastic" from 8 to 11 o'clock. Refreshments were served in the academy cafeteria during the intermission hour. Divine Love Love is the liberator, Love dwells right here; Love is the demonstrator, Love casts out fear. Love inspires, illuminates, Love heals to-day; Love clearly designates, Love leads the way. ,,o Love divine law fulfills, Love makes sin flee; Love cures our human ills, Love set us free. Love flows to all mankind, Love is a stream; Love will our chains unbind, Love is supreme. Love begets holiness, Father Laughlin Observes Fourth Anniversary Fort Smith, Jan. 24.--The ourth anniversary of the arrival in Fort Smith of Roy. J. G.

(E).--A re- treat for 35 hard-of-hearing wo- men and girls has been held at the Convent of Mary Reparatrix, di- rected by the Rev. Daniel F. X. Hart, of the Jesuit Retreat House, Manresa, Staten Island. An unusual feature of the re- treat was the installation of acous- ticon amplifying system in the chapel and confessional. Each re- treatant had an electrically am- plified hearing aid adjusted to her particular degree of hearing loss. Among the retreatants were sev- eral who had long been deafened and had been unable to hear Holy Mass for several years. Those who seek peace outside of God and the observance of the law He had laid down for our guidance will seek it in vain; and the sooner they give God His rightful place in their lives the sooner will they attain to the and the consequent joy they desire.
