ANNUAL RETREAT The Academy students made their annual three days' retreat immedi- ately after the examinations. The retreat was conducted by Rev. J. Laughlin, pastor of Christ the King Church. He gave the young ladies four conferences and a meditation each day. Being noted as a very fine speaker, his conferences were a credit to him as well as excellent food for thought, and wonderful sti- mulants for advancement in the spir- itual life for all who heard them. For a number of the students it was their first retreat. They expressed their hopes sincerely of renewing the :experiment each year. All the day pupils spent the three days and nights of the retreat at the Academy. The Sodality members will have their regular monthly meeting and instruction conducted by Reverend Father Kilpatrick. All the final work has been out- lined and programs arranged for pre- parations for the Arkansas State Contests which are to be held in April and May. Th Seniors will sponsor a card party Friday, January 31, from 2:00 to 4:00 p. m. The Mothers and friends will be invited. Stamps Calles Gave Nun Bring $100 For Cathohc Missioners West Baden, Ind., Jan. 20. O0.A singular incident makes General Plutarco Elias Calles, former presi- dent of Mexico and foe of the Cath- olic Church in that country, a bene- factor of Catholic missions in far-off India to the extent of about $100. This was amount realized from the sale of a box of cancelled stamps re- ceived recently from St. Vincent's Hospital, Los Angeles, by the Patna Mission Stamp Mart at West Baden College, conducted to assist Jesuit missions in India. The box contained hundreds of Mexican official and air mail stamps of high face value, and some en- velopes bearing the address--"Senor Gral. P. Elias Calles, Hospital San Vincente, etc." Calles, during his stay at the Catholic hosNtal last year, gave all the stamps he received to a nun, who sent them to the Patna: Stamp Mart, one of several bureaus I organized to help support mission-i aries. i The stamp mart is in the former West Baden Springs Hotel, famous spa donated to the Chicago Province of the Society of Jesus by its non- Catholic owner. The seminarians, between classes, sort and assemble the stamps for sale. They work in what formerly was the beauty parlor of the spa ,overlooking a magnificent atrium. The hoses that were used to wash hair now wash stamps. In its first year the bureau has realized $900 for the missions. The functioning of the Patna Mis- sion Stamp Mart is the subject of a I bookiet entitled, "Stamping Thru Patna," written by Mr. Paul O'Con- nor, S. J., and illustrated by IVr. Richard Tischler, S. J. It is issued in the hope of interesting its read- ers in saving cancelled stamps for the missions. THE GUARDIAN, FEBRUARY I, 1936 WILL WORK IN SOLOMON ISLANDS Rev. Henry Herbert, S.

C., for Father Herbert, who is en route to the Solomon Islands Missions, in Oceania. He was among eight young men of the Society of Mary, ordained last June, in Washington, at Bishop Wade's first ordination ceremonies.

The Scouts, uniformed and with colors massed behind a Scout band, will form on streets adjacent to the Cathedral and will march into the Cathedral.

Cashin, pastor of St. Andrew's Church, this city, are included in the program. The services will open with "Church Call" by a Scout bugler. The Boy Scouts will join with the Cathedral choir in rendering the hymns. The procession will be headed by 400 Boy Scouts from the 12 Coun- cils in the archdiocese, represented by eight boys from each troop. Be- hind these the procession will be made up by the remaining represen- tation of all troops. There are more than 5,000 boys in the Archdiocesan scout organiza- tion. The Four Cardinals of the United States, and 50 Archbishops and Bish- ops have approved the formation of Boy Scout Troops under Catholic auspices. I His Eminence, Patrick Cardinall Hayes, Archbishop of New York, has] given generous support to the Boy Scout program. For more than two decades Troops have been organized in parishes throughout the archdio- cese. His Eminence has further evi- denced his vital interest in this work by consenting to serve as Honorary Chairman of the Bishops' Committee on Scouting, of which the Most Rev. Francis C. Kelley, Bishop of Oklaho- ma, is chairman. Of approximately 2,000,000 Boy Scouts in the world more than 25 per-cent are Catholics. Of these the American contingent embraces 2,000 Troops with a membership of more than 50,000 Catholic boys. Three Catholic chaplians have been resident each summer in the Boy Scout camps located in the Cat- skill Mountains. Here, in the larg- est area in the world set aside for camping under Boy Scout auspices, are the camps of the five borough councils of New York. Within the New York Archdiocese 10 lay vice-chairman have been ap- pointed by Mr. Ridder in as many Scout Councils to promote the, or- ganization of troops in parishes. 1936 observance of February as Ca- tholic Prebs Month.

Boyle, Bishop of Pittsburgh and Episcopal Chairman of the Press Department of the National Catholic Welfare Conference, that "Catholic Press Month will not be successful unless we can secure more readers who read intelligently Ca-! tholic publications." Most Rev. Henry Althoff, Bishop of Bellvtlle, has stated that "mind- ful of the splendid success which the Notre Dame Sodality achieved by last year's contest during Cath- olic Press Month, I not only very willingly grant my approval of this year's contest, but I am also pleased to commend the subject so happily chosen." This united effort of the students "in behalf of a cause so :worthy and so blessed in its results ithe extension of the diocesan pa- peris indeed very gratifying to me," the Bishop added. BASKETBALL AT .... CATHOLIC Scott An Sublaco Defeated By Rockets Little Rock.The Catholic High basketball team registered victories l over Scott and Subiaco during the past week end. Scott, the first vic- tim of the Rockets, was humbled easily by the 50 to 24 score. Harri- son and Mayer, Rocket forwards, tal- lied sixteen and fifteen points, res- pectively to lead the scoring while the entire team performed beauti- fully on the floor. In the second game the Rockets encountered their ancient rivals the Subiaco "Trojans" and emerged vic- torious by a 31 to 29 score. Harri- son, Rocket forward, and Needham, Subiaco guard, tied for high scoring with ten points each. Hoagland of Subiaco and Hunt of the Rockets fol- lowed closely with nine and eight points respectively. The Rockets ob- tained an early lead and never re-i linkuished it.
