Smith, 1st V.*Pres. Jos A. Sohnitzer, Ft. Smith., See. Just received word that the Good Friday closing committee ap- pointed at Pocahontas, consists of J. V. Baltz, F. J. Baltz, and An- drew Jansen, and I hope that this committee will have great success in their endeavor and I hope that like committees have been or will be appointed by every affiliated society right away and then get busy and see the merchants and get them to sign up or, at least, promise to close their doors as per the wording of the cards we are having printed, viz: HS STORE WILL BE CLOSED BETWEEN THE HOURS OF 12:00 NOON AND ,8:00 O'CLOCK GOOD FRIDAY This is a very worthwhile work and in time every store may be in- duced to close; so, I hope that every affiliated society will at once work along with us and see their local merchants and urge them to cooperate with us. When these committees have been ap- pointed, please send the names in to me for our records and then also let us know how many stores have promised to close, so that cards can be sent you. Looking through my files, I find in The Guardian of April 10, 1937 a picture showing how Good Fri- day is observed n our National Capital. It shows a large crowd AT A GLANCE R. C.

The reading under the pic- ture is as follows: "The Rev. John T. Maloney of the Catholic University of Ameri- ca, is shown speaking to those as- sembled in Franklin Park, in downtown Washington for the 6th Annual Way of the Cross cere- monies, on Good Friday. The services were under the auspices of the Catholic Evidence Guild of Washington." In time, if our store closing move is a success, it is possible that the above might be duplicated here. This being Catholic Press Month I sincerely hope that every Cath- olic home in Arkansas is receiving The Guardian regularly, and if there are still some members of the Catholic Union that are not Guardian subscribers, then I hope that they will at once hand in their dollar to their pastor or their society secretary. At the prevailing price of only one dollar, i there exists no excuse for any Catholic family to be without The Guardian. T. J. ARNOLD. Priest Leads Crusade Against Tberculosis Honolulu, Jan. 24. (E).--One of the most active workers toward the "full year's crusade against tuberculosis" in Hawaii, plans for i which are now being formulated by the executive committee of the Territorial Tuberculosis Associa- tion, is the Rev. Valentin H. Francis, SS. CC., known to resi- dents of the territory as "the Patriarch of the Catholic Church in Hawaii." Catholic Offici#d Honored London, Jan. 24. 00.Bestowal of a knighthood by the King upon Charles McCann, Agent-General and Trade Commission in London for South Australia, brings to light the fact that he is a Catholic. Sir Charles is 58, was educated in Australia by the Christian Broth- ers, came to London before the world war and on its cessation worked in Argentine. He returned to London seven years ago. Sacrifice may become easy by habit,---none the less sacrifice. Laic School Edict Abolished in All Leftist Spain Bilbao.--With the recent de- crees issued by the France Gov- ernment, the school laicism im- posed upon Catholic Spain by the Republic become. wholly extinct in Nationalist Spain. The rules and regulations for all schools in i the liberated zone of the North, drawn up by Dr. Suner, include religious training other than the hour set aside daily for religious instruction. "On Saturday aftc.rnoons the Rosary will be recited," Dr. Sun- er orders. "All education must be permeated with the religious spirit so that the child will both feel and practice the Catholic religion. On entering the school the pupils will raise their arms and say: 'Ave Maria Purisima.' In the same way they will greet officials who visit the schools. At the beginning of the school day the 'Our Father' is to be recited and school  close with the prayer: 'Regina Pacts, era pro nobis.'" All holy days will be observed as school holidays. The custom of beginning school with the greeting "Ave Maria Purisima," to which the response is, "Sin Peeado Coneebinda," is traditional. Even adults have made a practice of using this greeting. Devotion to the Mother of God has always been a special mani- festation of Spanish Catholicism. For this reason special devotions in the schools are ordered for the month of May. An image of the Blessed Mother is to be placed in every classroom and the tradi- tional morning ceremonies will be held throughout the month before these statues. To the theoretical religious in- struction and the exercise of re- ligion, the Education Commission requires that there be added a so- cial practice of religious precepts which will influence the moral training of the child. Co-Educational ,mior College to Be Opened Washington, Feb. 4. (F,).A co- educational junior college under lay Catholic auspices will open here in the fall attolumbus Uni- versity, according to plans an- nounced this week by Chairman George E. Herring, of the Uni- versity's board of trustees. It will be the first co-educational in- stitution of its kind under Cath- olic auspices in the District of Columbia. Sponsored by the local Knights of Columbus, the university, an outgrowth of the post-war K. of C. schools for veterans, was incor- porated here in 1922 and was granted a federal charter by an act of Congress in 1934. It has maintained a law school and an accountancy school, with a total enrollment of more than 1,200.

Rube & Scott 4 17-419 Main Street Little Rock, Arkansas QUALITY CLOTHES AT REASONABLE PRICES r THE NA17ON SAFETY COffNCIL TURNING THE "'CO----R1NER Are you going to turn at the next corner? That, if you are a motor car driver, is the first thing to decide. Deciding late and turn- ing suddenly have caused many an accident. Will you turn left or right? If right, approach the turn close to the right hand side of the road, and signal your intention to cars be- hind. Slow down well before reaching the intersection; then take the turn slowly" looking out for the safety of all pedestrians. If you intend to turn left, the most common practice is to turn from the inner lane next to the center line of the roadway. Pre- pare for the turn by carefully an- gling across to the inner lane and signaling your intention to all cars behind. If traffic is approaching down the left hand side of the roadway, whose path you must cross as you turn, wait until this traffic has gone by; then turn around the center point of inter- section. Captive Spanish Bishop Impersonated on Radio London, Jan. 31. (EL--An im- poster is impersonating the cap- tured Bishop of Teruel and broad- casting from Leftist radio stations in Spain, according to word brought here by F. G. Sturrup, London business man who ha just returned from a visit to Nation- alist Spain. The man who is broadcasting as the Bishop, he says, has a voice resembling that of His Excellency, but that his friends can detect the difference. The broadcaster gave a rosy pic- ture of conditions in Leftist Spain and he tells the world that prison- ers are being well treated. Cnsider how all the vexations of the past have vanished; those of the future shall vanish in the same way. Student Honor Roll Announced At. St. Mary's Students who are on Mt.

(E).Protest against the so-called promotion of Simon W. Gerson as "assistant to the Borough President of Manhat- tan" is made in a letter sent to Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia by the New York State Council of the Knights of Columbus. The letter, which was made public yesterday, refers to Mr. Gerson as "an avowed Commu- nist" and declares that because of his party beliefs a Communist is "disqualified from taking oath in a representative and democratic form of government."

Tires and Batteries--Standard Gasoline and Oil N TO THE LITTLE ROCK READERS OF THE GUARDIAN On next Monday you will go to the polls to vote for or against a radical change in the operation of the city govern- , ment of Little Rock This is the IMPORTANT election since a majority vote for a change would definitely place before you a charter which you would be called upon to accept. The act under which this would be done does not pro- vide for anything that the present form of government does not guarantee EXCEPT that the DICTATOR-MANAGER and his board can fix salaries to their liking. They can enact no laws that conflict with state laws and they cart do nothing that cannot be done under the present form of government except act as managers of the people. Under the present form of government you have a voice in the selection of your officials and misconduct on their part means their repudiation at the polls. But you would have no such opportunity under a DICTATOR-MANAGER. Think it over and vote against a change of the present form of government that operates for the benefit of the people.
