Needless to say our pre- After several weeks of practice the College met the strong Hendrix aggregation from Conway and easily defeated them, 29 to 13. It was a fairly rough game with lots of fight, both teams on the go from start to finish. Zilkey, our big guard, was foremost in the defeat of Hendrix. His guard- ing was hard and consistent in break- ing up the team work of the visitor. Likewise he dropped in three goals from the middle of the floor. "Sally" Matthews displayed unerring accuracy at dropping the counters through the basket. Matthews hot five goals, three of which were fror hard angles. In addition to his goal sh6oting Mat- thews is a good floor man. Captain Warner at guard assisted Zilkey in cutting down the score of the "Bull- dogs" to a great extent. Likewise his shooting f fouls added three to our total. "Tutor" dropped a pretty goal from the middle of the floor just be- fore the end of the first half. In the last half Captain Warner sent in McShane' and Travers to re- place Aday and Matthews. They sllowed wonderful speed, keeping the ball in constant motion toward our goal. For the "Bulldogs" Schisler and HoMey put up the best game, work- ing the ball down the court only to miss by a narrow margin. Gregg was a strong man on the defense, return- ing the ball to his end of the court with a speed that was amazing. dictions are all good. The Cadet Corps is doing quite a bit of really strenuous work. The gen- eral drill held all of Saturday after- noon was excellent. Great things are expected of this club. The grades for January show that instead of having relinquished their claims, the various aspirants for med- als have gone to work even with great- er effort. Th4 Showings made by most of the fellows were better than could have been asked of them. The races for the medals are certainly commanding attention and we look forward to seeing the dust fly during the last few months of this year. NOTRE DAME COLLEGE Admiral William S..Benson who two weeks ago accepted an invitation to deliver a series of lectures on for- eign trade and international law at Notre Dame, will come to the uni- vercity in March according to word recently received from Washington. He will spend the entire month at Notre Dame. Although recently re- called to active duty by the Senate Naval Investigating Committee it is expected that hi duties there will shortly expire and will in no way ef- fect his lecture course at Notre Drone. Judging from applications for sug- gestions and advice coming from state councils in different parts of the coun- try, officers and members of the Notr$ Dame Council Knights of Columbus are more satisfied than ever that their Social Center project when initiated a year ago had the right ring. Numer- ou state officers have written to Grand Knight T. J. Tobin of Notre Dame for suggestions as to the con- duct of such a building. They plan to erect similar structures at secular schools. The Notre Dame project, however, unlike those elsewhere will be entirely independent of the state council. All funds ar being raised by individual members" of the council. Excavations for the buiMing will be made as soon as the weather permits. Notre Dame was the first university. in the world to establisl a council of Knights of Columbus. ,The Church of the South TEXAS $ Austin The Newman Club of the University of Texas initiated over 40 members last montl into their arganization. Mr. Frank GeEing, president of the club, was the toastmaster at the ban- quet held after the initiation exercise. At the conclusion df Father Ross' talk, it was "unanimously voted to found a scholarship in memory of the Hon. Benjamin Dudley Traiton, late Professor of Law at the University, "himself-an ideal representative of a Catholic teaching in a non-sectarian university, and one who has demon- strated beyond question the influence that a man in such a position could wield." sons of well known Texas families, and Rev, Thos. Kennedy and Rev. Jos. Dwan, from Ireland, were ordain; ed priests last Sunday by the Rt. Rev. A. J. Drossaerts, D.D., in the chapel of the San Antonio Theological Seminary. These four young men are members of the Congregation of Oblates of Mary Immaculate. The Rt. Rev. A. J. Drossaerts, D.D., has just completed a tour of some of his rural parishes. Of the twenty missions of Father P. Baquet, His Lordship visited the small but beauti- ful churches of Palacios and Blessing, Edna and Inez, and the new church at Bloomington. On this mission 430 persons were confilTned. At Ganado, the Bishop met a very enthusiastic congregation, where a new church is needed. At Uvalde, upon the close of a mis- sions to Mexicans, during which 14 marriages ere revalidated, 300 mis - sion confessions heard, His Lordship confirmed 136 children and one adult. Sixty-three children and one adult. a convert, were confil"med at Sabinal. G. F. X. S. REQUIEM FOR I)R. O'RIORDAN (C. P. A. Special to The Guardian.)

'lst. The church was built in 1888, though recently the pastor, Father Kealy, spent $2,000 repairing the building. "One of the most regrettable losses was the total loss of two hand- some memorial windows installed dur- ing the Christmas services. One was the gift of Mrs. A. Sullivan in memory of her son, Lieut. E. B. Sullivan." The loss is covered by $4,000 insurance. San Antoo. Holy Mass was celebrated for the first time on the lower floor of the new St. Leo's church last Sunday. The building will be finished in the inter- lior by the middle of April. Two large furnaceg and 200 camp stools have been donated by friends.

No doubt this dramatic masterpiece will make a decided hit. The public is treated to a highly interesting study in psychology in the qharacter of Melvin. We find him at the start of the. play in his homea home where love rules supreme. He is every inch % , a man, a specimen of America s best, and his heart, his mind, and in fact his very being is at the feet of his wife and child. He goes out upon an errand: During his absence his pars- dice is destroyed, the wife disappears, his child, upon whom in his super-love of a father, he has lavished every tender thought or action, has been swept out bT his life. He is, as it were, a derlict upon life's a of troubles. Under the shock of the un- expected, of the bitter disappoint- ment, and of his terrible thoughts, his strained nerves snap and in a single moment he is transformed from a sane man of the world, into a raving maniac. Then follows the wild re- vengeful search through the moun- tains and many other awesome turns of his ruined mind. The character must be seen before it can be under- stood. Mr. P. D. Williams will aN terpt to live himself into this role upon the night of the play, February 16th. The part of "Rose" will be played by R. E. Woodard, a lad of evceptional talents when we consider fen%ale im- personations. This part is beautiful and will touch the heart of the most hardened, and at the same time pro- voke one to laughter. And when "Lacy" in the person of Gip Rohert- son comes along and introduces a vgry pretty romance the nterest is so hightened that it holds one speechless and almost breathless. Yes, the villain is among those pres- ent and none of his regular blood- curdling speeches are absent. But this illaln is in a measure "different" and his wonderful asset is his super-vil- lainy. Mr. W. B. Thompson intends to play this part perfectly, and we are confident that his expectations will materialize. Ieo Krebs, as "Waters," R. Phillips ' as "Murphy," and Geo. Weiterer as "Hiram we are sure will be almost amusing enough to make a cow laugh and a cow has no sense of humor. Therefore, what effect will they have upon m.n with all his powers of true appreciation of the ludicrous? H. Long will amuse us a Chinaman, while Jno. Pastusek, W. Majors and ,7. Carroll feature respectively as Lord, Jones and Hays. Tle part of the little child will he interpreted by W. Parker and C. Rid- dle will play the part of Nancy. The scenes where a, house is blown up and where lightning strikes a tree will require the use of every available bit of stage m%ifice that the stage manager can contrive. The various mountain scenes will also be very unique, The play will be produced for the boyg of the College February 12 and for the public February 16th.

There are gigantic schemes in process of formation to make Cath- olic American missiorL supplort ex- tremely effective. Nefther men nvl money shall fail. We will doubt:ess get the money, and probably also the men, but how about prayer,--which after all, is the main requisite to as- sure success. We should never cease to insist that in a work of such a highly spiritual character as the sal- vation of souls felwent prayer must ever hold the first place.  D When Rev. Arnold 5anssen, S.V.., founded his two missionary societies. the Society of the Divine Word, and the missionary sisterhood of the Serv- ants of the Holy Ghost, he too looked for success to prayer, and his main contribution to this end was the edec- tion of a cloistered branch of mission- ary Sisters, the Sister Servants of the Holy Ghost of Perpetual Adol;ation: who, should pray day and night before the/Blessed Sacrament for the strug- gling missionarms. This branch tln'iv- ed, and llowed the invitation of Archbishop Prendergast to take over a beautiful smaU church especially erected for them in Philadelphia. Here then, American girls and young la- dies who feel called to this leautiful life .of prayer, and are zealous for the success of our missionaries, will ring a ready reception. We need them. lest our endeavors be founded too much on the dollar. Catholic edu- cators and parents who know such girls cannot perfmTn a more apostolic work than by referring them to Yen. Mother Baptista, 22nd and Green Sts., Philade:phia, Pa. COMMUNISM AIMS TO ENGULF WORLD Washington, Feb. 4.--The Commun- ism of'Lenine and Trotzky recognizes no National lines or State boundaries, but aims at engulfing the entire world through establishment of a "dictator- ship of proletariat," according to the "essence" of Societism prepared by the Bolsheviki themselves and includ- ed in a collection of press utterances translated from Russian newspapers for the State Department. The memorandum, which presents an indictment of Bolshevik terrorism and points out the Soviet program for world revolution, was made public and has been tlansmitted to the Senate and House committees dealing with foreign affairs. Four Ameicar radical ,organiza- tions were included in the .original list eligiblo for representation and full membership in the third international, according ,to the full text of the call issued, by wireless in January, 1919,. which was reproduced in the memo- randum." These rganizations were the Social Labor party 'of America. the "Left elements of the _Socialist party of America, especially that "goup which is represented by DebS and the Socialist propaganda assoc)a- tion," the I.

MEDIEVAL PROFITEERS WERE STERNLY PUNISHED Modern War Has Wiped Out Wise Penalties Imlmsed in the Middle Ages. "Profiteering" may be a new word, but the abuse which it expresses, as wel las kindred modern ones, were not only well known, but drastically mnished in the Middle Ages. The people of those Catholic time lid not hesitate to call a spaXte,a spade, and they gave strong titles to abuses which in our day are some- what more politely handled, suggests Dr. James J. Walsh in "America." The crimes of "forestalling, regrating and engrossing," wiped off the Eng- lish statute books by political econo- mists, represented ancient ancestors of similar modern abuses. The wiping out of these from the statute books Dr. Walsh calls another of the serious social crimes of politi- cal conomy. oPlitical economists of the end of the eighteenth and the be- ginning 'of the nienteenth centuries are responsib:e for more social injus- tice in our times than probably any other single human factor, re de- clares. A forestaller in old times was one who purchased merchandise while it was on the way to market or just as it came in, in order to raise its price. Persons who so acted with necessi- ties of life in the Middle Ages were considered guilty of a crime, and were imprisoned or had their goods con- fl seated. C,;ldsmen were opposed to the mid- Idleman when he seed no useful pur- pose, but merely took pfit.. A stat- ute of King Henry III called a fore- stailer an oppressor of the poor nd of common folk and an enemy of the country. What we term monopoly the medi- aeval people termed "engrossing." A regrater was one who bought up mer- ctmndise to sell it at a higher price. BISHOP McCORT Named Coadjutor of Altoona Diocese With Right of Succession. Altoona, Pa., Fer. 4.Right Rev. John J. McCort, Auxiliary Bishop ol the arch-diocese of Philadelphia, has been appointed Coadjutor Bishop of the dioCese of Altoona. Pope Benedict. XV., in naming the Philadelphia" prelate as coadjutor to Rt. Rev. Eugene A. Garvey, confers upon him the right of succession i the event of vacancy. Bishop Garvey; who is 74 years old, has been in poor health and appealed a short time ago to the Pope to have a coadjutor ap- pointed. In June, 1916, he was tendered the appointment of Bishop of Los Ange- les, Cal., but declined it in response to the request of Archbishop Prender- ;asg, and was released by the Pope. The fulfillment of duty is so neees- ;ary to our good, that even sorrows and death, which seem to be our most immediate evils, are accepted with jo. by him who generously suffers ann dies with the desire of helping others, and of conforming hhnself to the blessed commandments of God.
