PAGE EIGHT I II I THE GUARDIAN, JANUARY 29, 1938 By Father Francis I MEDAL The Daug]iten e! Charity Emm|tsburg, Md, THE GREAT GIFT OF OUR LADY She works, she talks, she laughs, she prays, Through all her Seminary daysl Ding! Dong! Ding! Dongl The great bell rang. Then through the long white hallways of the Mother House of the daughters of Charity in Paris came the sound of many footsteps. Many young girls were going through the halls. Each of them wore a dress pf soft black with a little white 'shawl care- fully pinned in front. Each of them wore a little white cap that came out a little over her face. All of them went into a large room. There were many seats in this room. At one end of the room there was a statue of our Lady. First the young girls knelt down and said a "Hail Mary." Then they sat down. They began to sew. They talked and laughed while they sewed. All of these young girls were Seminary Sisters. They were in the Mother House in Paris. They I were learning how to be Sisters of Charity. In a few months they would receive the beautiful blue dress and lovely white cornette. Then they would be sent out any- where in the wide world to help the poor and the sick and the lit- tle children. These young girls had come from many places. Some had come from far, far away. One of them was Zoe. But she was not called Zoe now. Now, she was Sister Catherine. After awhile a Sister of Char- ity came in the room. Her name was Sister Martha. She talked to the Sisters every day. She taught them how to be Sisters of Charity. She taught them how to take care of the poor and the sick and children. Today, Sister Martha talked to them about our Blessed Mother. She said: "Our Blessed Lady is God's Mother. He loved her so much that He has made her Queen of Heaven. She is Queen of the Angels and Queen of the Saints. But she is our Queen too. She is more than our Queen. She is our Mother. She loves us as her children. She watches over us." Zoe was listening, but she was thinking, too, of the time her own dear mother died. She was think- ing of how she had asked our Lady to be her Mother. Sister Catherine loved our Lady, oh, so dearly! Sister Catherine had always wanted to see our Blessed Lady and talk to her. When she had been little, she had often asked her Sister Mary Louise how soon she could see our Blessed Moth- er. Mary Louise would say: "When you get to Heaven, Zoe." And Zoe would say: "That is a long, long time to wait. Can't I see her before that?" And she had often asked her Guardian Angel to please ask our Lady to come down on earth to see her. Today, in the Seminary, Sister Catherine was listening and think- ing of all these things. She said to herself: "I am going to ask again. May- be if I pray very hard to St. Vincent and my Guardian Angel, our Lady will come." Oh, could I see our Lady dear! My Guardian Angel, bring her here!

G. T.) It recognizes the inadequacy of the wages paid, but, in the interest of the working class itself, refuses to approve the strike instead of resort to the normal procedures of conciliation and arbitration. 171 Cases Of Medical Supplies Sent to Missions New York, Jan. 24. (EL--In the past year 171 packing dases of medical supplies were sent out from the headquarters of the Cath- olic Medical Mission Board, it was stated at the annual meeting of the Board of Directors and the Executive Committee just held. Approximately $100,000 worth of supplies are constantly on hand at the headquarters, being shipped out to the missions as fast as pos- sible, declared the Rev. Edward F. Garesche, S. J., President of the Board. Medicines, instruments, ,band- ages and dressings were received from 250 benefactors in the United States, Father Garesche stated, with 10 per cent of the Catholic hospitals cooperating. The sorting, packing and ship- ping of the medical supplies is handled by the Daughters of Mary, Health of the Sick, a com- munity entirely separate from the Catholic Medical Mission Board in its organizations and the report explained. The Very Rev. William A. Grif- fin, Director of the Propagation of the Faith for the Diacese of Newark, was elected Secretary of the Board, to fill a vacancy. Cech, Catholic Weekly Newspaper Is Suspended Prague, Jan. 17. (EL--The pub- lication of Cech, Catholic week- ly paper here, has been suspended. Cech had been published for 62 years. For over 50 years it ap- peared daily, but later it was pub- lished weekly. Cech was found- ed in 1876 by several Czech Cath- olics and was devoted in the earlier years of its existence to combat- ting the spirit of religious indif- ference. The paper became the object of vigorous attacks by anti-Catho- lic groups but it carried on. Its decline began after the formation of the Republic. New Catholic daily papers, backed by the Pop- ular Party were founded and gain- ed subscribers by thousands. Cech stood apart from Czech Catholics' public activity.

Archbishop Rummel, whose sub- ject was "Character Building," said: "I do not know of any kind of sports of the people of Norway. The children begin when they are ery young.

'l' IN THE KITCHE [ With Molly Gavin i Itow and What to Serve: Shape into :'ells abq i Potatoes stand pre-eminent in diameter; roll in among the food vegetables, and chill in relrigrat, I being constantly used we might over night. Cu; in expect to have them served to per- and bake on an un i fection, but in reality few vege- sheet in a very hot Shape into rolls about refrigerator, Cut in 1/s i tables are so poorly cooked. They are at their best in the fall and keep well throughout the winter. By this time of year the starch is changed to dextrim, giving the. potatoes a sweetness, and when cooked a waxiness. This also happens when they become frozen. They should be kept always in a cool, dark place. In the warmth and light they are liable to sprout, thus receiving their nourishment from the starch, and the sprouts should be removed at once. When potatoes are peeled before cooking, it should be done as thin- ly as possible, as they contain an acrid juice and the greater food value is near the skins. When potatoes are baked no nu- trients are lost. In baking potatoes, the water contained in them va- porizes. The vaporized steam is! held under pressure by the skin of the vegetable and the steam thus becomes hotter than boiling i water; hence a baked potato is cooked at a higher temperature than a boiled one and the starch is more thoroughly cooked and there- fore more easily digested. When boiling potatoes place them in boiling water to cover and add a teaspoon of salt for each six potatoeG. Boil for about 25 minutes and test with a fork. When done remove the water at once. A teaspoon of sugar added to the water in which they are boiled improves the flavor of the potatoes and makes them very mealy. FRied Potato Shells 3 large potatoes 2 tbps. butter 1% cups canned peas 1-4 cup milk Salt and pepper 3-4 cup diced carrots Scrub potatoes well and i)rush skins with melted fat; place in I a hot oven and allow to bake un- til tender (about 1 hour), depend- ing on the size of the potatoes. Remove from oven and cut in halves lengthwise. Scoop out the potato pulp and mash as for mash- ed potatoes; add milk, 1 tbp. but- ter (or substitute) and salt and pepper to taste. Pack potato mix- ture back into shell, filling skins three-quarters full. Combine peas with cooked, diced carrots, add 1 tbp. butter, 1 tsp. sugar, and salt and pepper to taste. Blend carefully. Avoid having the juice of the peas in the mixture. Finish filling potato skins with vegetable mixture. Place potatoes on a bak- ing sheet and return to the oven and allow to heat thoroughly. Serve hot. French Fried Potatoes French fried potatoes are not difficult to cook providing you ]]ave a pot suitable for cooking them. Pare small raw potatoes divide in halves, and cut each half in three pieces; cover with boiling water and let stand 3 mins. Drain well between cloths or ab- sorbent towels and cook in frying basket in hot fat 10 minutes. Drain sprinkle with salt, and serve im- mediately. To test the fat to see if it is hot enough, try one slice of potato; if it browns quickly the fat is hot enough. Drain the po-. tatoes on brown paper.
