PAGE TWO THE GUARDIAN, FEBRUARY 12, Hundreds Are Attracted ,.vow00 By Luenen Passion Play Ft. Smith, Feb. 8.--The Luenen Passion Play, brought to Fort Smith under the auspices of Rev. Father Desmond and the Patrons Club of the Immaculate Concep- tion school, was a splendid suc- cess. The seven performances, given in the auditorium of the Senior High School, attracted hun- dreds of people who were deeply impressed with the sacred spec- tacle, which was truly inspira- tional, arousing feelings of the most ardent religious fervor in theaudience; and the remem- brance of the more solemn scenes, so realistically enacted, should re- main a life long thought. The Christus as portrayed by Josef Meier was as near perfection as any human being could be pos- sible of, tie blending of gentle- ness, power, authority, submissive- ness and majesty was superb. The characterization of Judas was another thrilling renditiorr, the remorse and grief depicted producing a memorable lesson. Stage settings and lighting ef- fects Were excellent, and the cos- tuming magnificent. There were 20 professional players in the cast. In the mob scenes were several students from the Junior College and also from St. Anne's Academy. The academy glee clubs were the singers for the matinees, and united with the various choirs of the city during the evening per- formances. Maurice Derdyn di- rected the entire musical arrange- ment. Ft. Smith Negro Public Library To Be Erected Fort Smith, Feb. 8.--Work on what promises to be a splendid addition to the parish of St. John Baptist, in Fort Smith, a public library for the negro people of that city, was with the approval and blessing of His ExCellency, the Most Reverend Bishop, begun last week. Of colonial design, in keeping with the church and other parish buildings, it has been designed by the architect, E. Chester Nelson. The contractor is Thomas Drake. The brick veneer structure will measure 23 by 42 feet and the I Rev. Wm. P. Murray, pastor, esti- mates the cost at $4,500. SEMINARIAN IS KILLED ANOTHER INJURED WHEN AUTO SKIDS, HITS TREE Rochester, Feb. 1. {E).mFuneral services were held in the Pro- Cathedral of the Sacred Heart here today for Walter Beeman, of Rochester, student of St. Bernard's Seminary, who was killed in an automobile accident near Medina, N. Y., Friday morning. Joseph J. Sullivan, also of Rochester and also a student of the Seminary, re- ceived a slight fracture of the skull in the accident. He is expected to recover. He is still confined to the Medina Hospital. The two students were return- Lug from Toronto, where they had visited a friend, Walter Sullivan, who is a member of the Basilian Order and who also is a resident af Rochester. Their car skidded as it rounded an icy curve and crashed into a tree. Mr. Beeman died two hours later. The two were on a vacation trip following their January examina- tions and were due to return to the Seminary next Thursday. The Most Rev. James E. Kearney, Bish- op of Rochester, delivered the ser- mon at the funeral Mass for Mr. Beeman. The other students of the Ireland And Great Britain To Reach Agreement London, Jan. 31. (EL--Although Eamon de Valera stated on his re- turn to Ireland after the three-day discussion with British ministers that "it will not be easy to find agreement," there is a feeling among Catholics here that Ire- land and Britain are already much closer together, and that an ar- rangement is almost inevitable. It is clear that in facing the pos- sibility of war Britain must be cer- tain the friendship of her neigh- bor to the west. From a military point of view this is essential. From the point of view of sup- plies it is desirable. Indicate General Attitude It is possible, too, that in fos- tering the talks with Mr. de Val- era Britain had in mind the placat- ing of Irish-American feeling, a point which may be of some im- portance in the present state of international affairs. Mr. de Valera's statement on the Downing Street talks was: "Each side in the negotiations has put forward its views and indicated its general attitude on the chief outstanding matters in dispute between the two countries. Trade Question Examined "The approach of the two States For the first time in the history of the Society of Jesus in North America, a father and son pronounced their final vows on the same day and at the Same altar.

However we are exploring the whole field during the next few weeks• "There will be a detailed exami- nation of trade questions, and when the delegations meet again they should be in a position to dis- cover quickly whether an agree- ment is or is not possible." When Mr. de Valera arrived here to start the discussions a tremendous crowd of Irishmen and Irishwomen cheered him at the train. Policemen and photo- graphers were swept aside in the enthusiasm of the London Irish. Men climbed to the roof of the train, and Mr. de Valera had to be rescued and taken back to the train to save him from his en- thusiastic friends. New Irish Legislation Controls Dance Halls Dublin, Feb. 7. (E).--The rapid growth in the number of commer= cialized dance halls, sometimes no better than a hastily constructed shed, and the undoubted evils re- sulting from the unsupervised dances held in them has led to constant legislation in the effort to curb the danger. Halls erected in lonely places are refused a license for dancing and people coming from a distance of more than five miles are re- fused admission--if the law is not i evaded. The drinking that takes places among so many of the young persons attending these dances is constantly condemned by the clergy, who vigorously op- pose the granting of licenses in cases where this is known to have occurred. Washington, Feb. 7. (E).bFrank amazement that 60 members of the 75th Congress of the United States have signed a message conveying greetings to and laud- ing the Leftist parliament in Bar- celona, Spain, is expressed in a statement made public last eve- ning by the Rt. Rev. Msgr. Mi- chael J. Ready, General Secretary of the National Catholic Welfare Conference. The message signed by the American legislators was made public yesterday morning J by the representatives here of the Spanish Leftist government. Monsignor Ready directs atten- tion to the fact that the Barcelona Government in Spain has been re- sponsible "for the torture and murder of thousands of Bishops and priests and nuns, the desecra- tion and destruction of hundreds of churches and shrines, and the complete denial of religious free- dom." No such government whether it is legally in power or not, whether it can call itself 'democratic' or not, deserves the good wishes and moral support of any conscientious upholder of our Constitution, the more so if he is sworn to that obligation as an of- ficial representative of our genu- inely free democracy," Monsignor Ready adds. The text of the statement fol- lows: "The message of 'good wishes' to the parliament of the Barcelona government in Spain, signed by 60 Senators and Representatives of the United States and released in today's newspapers, has simply amazed me. "Poor comfort--a little reassur- ance--may be taken from state- ments by some of these Senators and Representatives, that they signed the document w!thout acquainting themselves beforehand with its content or meaning. "Two thoughts obtrude them- i Seminary returned early to attend the funeral• Mr. Beeman was the son of Mrs. Walter A. Beeraan, of Rochester , and Mr. Sullivan is the son of Mr. and Mrs. John J.

Father Janesko last Thurs- day morning at the Immaculate Cofception church. The services were attended by many of the students of St. Anne's academy where Jackie had been a pupil for three years. Interment was in the Catholic cemetery. The deceased is survived by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jack Ber- nisen, and one sister, all of the home, 4718 Spradling avenue.

In a word, one may well wonder whether an embassy has been turned into a propaganda 'pressure' agency. "Second is the consoling thought that only 60 of our 531 Senators and Representatives--only 11 per- cent, that isbhave lent their names to this petition. This is a healthy sign that devnocracy is still what it purports to be in the United States, and not a mere sham and catchword as it is in some countries. When your heart is distracted in prayer, bring it gently back to the point from which it has wan- dered, and lay it tenderly at the feet of the Master.
