Representative Dies said that the Committee "did not give Lash any whitewash" and that "it was not intended to do so." He did' sot comment upon the report that Mrs. Roosevelt had arranged for the special hearing. He did say, however, that Lash apologized to the Committee for his behavior before it in December, 1939, when he sang a ditty criticising the House group. At the time Lash's extraordinary meeting with the Dies Committee was revealed, it was also disclos- ed that he had applied for a com- mission in Naval Intelligence last September; that he had passed the physical examination given him at that time, but that the Navy had turned him down for ! a commission. While no reason was given, it is believed in the Capital that the Navy Depart- men's action was taken in the light of Lash's previous connections. Representative Dies said last night that Lash's appearan.ce be- fore the Committee thisweek con- firmed that body's earlier findings that he was closely identified with such groups as the American Youth Congress, the American Student Union, the Spanish Refu- gee Relief Campaign, the Inter- national Labor Defense, and the American League for Peace and Democracy. All of the groups were branded by all the Dies Committee as Communist-dominated. T h e Congressman added that Lash had told the Committee that he broke with these groups at the time of the Berlin-Moscow pact, and that he had since been bitterly attack- ed by Communists. s00smmar00}ursss00: urse-A Sum of $5,000.00, Which, Invest- ed, Will Help Defray The Cost of Train- lng A Young Man For The Priesthood.

The West Memphis report, given by Mrs. Hundhausen, stated that the organization had voted to buy defense bonds. Mrs. Hersperger of Crawfords- ville reported the purchase of de- fense stamps and a bond by the Altar Society. The Sacred Heart Council report, given by Mrs. Rose Yaden, covered the Red Cross sewing project and' payment of state dues by sale of Christmas cards. Preceding the meeting Bene- diction of the Most Blessed Sac- rament was given at St. Michael's Church by the Rev. Louis Janesko, District Chaplain and Pastor. Mrs. N. M. Gibson, district president,  presided at the business sessmn. It was voted that each Catholic lady or family adopt one soldier who is in active service to say special prayers for him every day. Short talks were given by the pastors present, the Rev. Edwin A. Hemmen of Forrest City, the Roy. Gregory H. Keller of Hel- ena and Father Janesko. A delicious chicken dinner was served following the business meeting. Mrs. Gibson, the district president, was presented a gar- denia corsage by the West Mem- phis council. The next district meeting will be held in Forrest City. Delegates were: Helena: Father Keller, Mzs. Bell, Mrs. Joe Papa, Mrs. George Patkoff,' Jr., Mrs. Will Cushman and Mrs. T. Traicoff.

THE GUARDIAN, JANUARY 30, 1942 She Prays for Mata-Hari Nun Who Administered To Hardened Women In French Prison, Retires Vichy. (k").  Mother Perpetue, 84-year-old Superior at Le Petite- Roquette, the women's prison at Paris, and 89-year-old Sister Leo- nidq, who has been a keeper at the same prison for 70 years, have retired to the motherhouse of the Sisters of Mary and Joseph at Le Dorat in Haute-Vienne. La Semaine Religieuse, official organ of the Archdiocese of Paris, pays tribute to the humble but heroic devotion of these two nuns. Sister Leonide had just com- pleted her novitiate when in 1871 --the year of the Paris Commune --she was assigned to La Petite- Roquette. She has known and comforted many a criminal and even in her retirement Sister Leo- nide will still have a daily obli- gation of complying with a prom- ise made when a woman, about to Catholic Union of Arkansas Rt.

Subiaco, First Vies President George Stiemel, Pocahontas, Second Vice President Peter P. Hiegel, Conway, Third Vice President The Central District held a well attended and enthusiastic meeting at St. Edward's Church m Little Rock, on Sunday, January 5th. The meeting was called to order by president, Mr. Pete Hiegel of Con- way, promptly at 2 o'clock, im- mediately after Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament at 1:30 p. m. A resolution was passed at the ioint meeting that our Congress keep the Farm Security Adminis- tration in full activity at this time of national emergency, by voting down legislation asking for its abolition. Copies of this resolution were sent to all members of the Senate and the House from Ar- kansas. The Defense program adopted by the Northeastern District the previous Sunday was also adopted in full by the Central District by both the men's and women's section. This program appeared in full in last week's issue of The Guardiala and it should therefore be unnecessary to reproduce it at this time. The adoption of this program shows that the organiza- tion is adapting its program to the needs of the day, and por- trays its spirit of youth although it is a veteran of over fifty years of service. A vote of thanks was extended to District President Hiegel for the splendid luncheon served at neon tO the presidents and officers af- filiated with the Central District of both the men's and women's Union. This luncheon was prepar- ed by some of the ladies of the Central District and served in the Hostess Rooms of Garreti Broth- ers.

The false tolerance on a denial of truth was like a seed that fell on shallow ground, and when the hot sun of dictator- ship arose, the seed, because it had no roots, withered away; and then sprang up the weeds of false intol- erance as anti-Semitism, anti- Christianity, and anti-God fans- , ticism swept the world with a sword." Man Will Hve An Altar Monsignor Sheen said "man will have an altar, and tf he cannot kneel before the altar of the true God, he will prostrate himself be- fore the sun, or a tortured cross, or the cadaver of Lenin." "Let us not make the fatal mistake of thinking that there fanaticism for false gods can be overcome by our indifference to the true God, or that anti-religious and anti- humanity crusades can be con- quered by a coolness either to re- ligion or to humanity. Their fire from hell can be met only by fire from heaven; their zeal for idols, by our zeal for divinity. "That is why this war may be a blessing in disguise; it challenges us to rouse ourselves from the debris of a false tolerance and to run toward the tabernacle of the 75.00 i 9 ! 7.29 1,048.30 100.00 Additions ......................

Please say a little prayer for me every day as long as you live." The woman was Mata-Hari, and the promise was made before the firing-squad at Vincennes. But Mata-Hari was only one of many prisoners who yielded to Sister Leonide's tender solicitude. Another was Violette Noziere who killed her parents. For months after her arrival at La Petite- Roquette she would not speak, and other prisoners did not hide their repugnance for the parricide. But finally, Violette Noziere could not hold out against Sister Leonide and she threw herself into the arms of the nun and wept. Sister Leonide is an officer of the Legion of Honor and was awarded the Military Cross.

Many problems of the service, center were also discussed. Miss Helen Fritche of Prairie View, Youth Chairman of the Catholic Women's Union, made an address and told about the work and program undertaken by the youth of the organization. The Rev. Lawrence Hoyt, the congenial pastor of St. Edward's, made the welcome address, and extended the hospitality of St. Ed- ward's to all attending. Carl Meurer, state president, spoke on the program of the or- ganization asking the cooperation of all in the carrying out of same, in his respective organization. Mrs. George Hum, Central Dis- trict president of the Women's Union, sat at the speakers' table, and later presided at the meet- ing of her organization. All dele- gates present at tle meeting pledged themselves ot full coop- eration in working on any carry- ing out the program of the Union in their respective societies. From the enthusiasm that was evidenced it can be predicted' that during the interim before the next reeting of the organization in April, a great deal should be ac- complished and many splendid re- ports are being anticipated. Lunch- es and refreshments were served by the ladies of St. Edward's after the meeting. PAGE FIVE was explained in detail and urged to assist to their utmost the successful carrying out of this program n their own society. A vote of thanks was also given to Garrett Brothers for the use of their rooms for the occasion. Mr. William Flaherty, Director of the Little Rock Center of the N a t i o n a 1 Catholic Community Service, was the principal speak- er of the afternoon. He told those assembled about fle service of his BLOCKADE IMPERILS LEPER COLONY Capuchins, Jesuits Honored In Venezuela Jubilees Caracas. (EL--Venezuelan Cath- olics have rendered a tribute of appreciation to the Capuchins and the Jesuits, who are observing the golden and silver jubilees, re- spectively, of' their arrival in Ven- ezuela. In the case of the Jesuits, however, it is the silver jubilee of their second arrival. For the last 50 years the Capu- chins have labored as missionaries along the Caroni River and have preached in the churches of the principal cities of the Republic as well as in towns and villages in remote sections. Franciscan Ter- tiaries organized by the Capuchin Fathers, are one of the greatest forces of Catholic social service in the nation. An outstanding work of the Jesuits is the Inter-diocesan Semi- nary and the schools at Caracas and Merida. They also are estab- lished in parishes at Caracas, Par- aguana, Maracaibo and other cities, assist Catholic Action move- ments, and maintain charitable Four Priest-Brothers and welfare centers, particular- Mourn Canada Pastor ly in the poorer sections of the Cardigan, Prince Edward Island Capital.

(]{:).--To accom- modate parishioners employed in defense work, pastors throughout the Diocese of Scranton have been authorized to arrange the first Mass on Sundays and holydays at an earlier hour than is usually permitted. Permission to make such a change if the pastors deem it necessary was granted by the Most Rev. William J. Hafey, Bishop of Scranton, according to an an- nouncement by the Rev. William K.

For the Catholic Press in- terprets the teaching of the Church, it defends the cause of the Church and it portrays the world-wide life of the Church."-Archbishop Mooney of Detroit. INFLUENCE STRESSED "The Catholic Press may be regarded as the mouthpiece of the Head of the Church in the ful- fillment of his mission to keep intact the divine faith committed to his care and to foster the purity of Christian morals. It is our Holy Father himself, who gave this title to it when a short time ago, on the occasion of an address to a group of Catholic jour- nalists, he said to them, 'You are my voice.'"-Bishop Floersh, Louisville.
