Unit Of El Dorado Has Monthly Meeting E1 Dorado, Feb. 15.--The local chapter of the National Council of Catholic Women held its regular monthly meeting on February 7 in the Catholic Community hall. This meeting was in charge of the Youth Activity Committee. Plans for supplying the Boy i Scouts with tents and other need- ed equippment were made and committees were appointed for the annual Father and Son banquet of the Boy Scout troop and the Cub Pack which will be held on February 16. Two articles from the January issue of the "Catholic Action" were reviewed by Mrs. Carl Mil- ler and Mrs. Pat Brady. The next monthly meeting will be in charge of the Mission Com- mittee with Mrs. D. Z. Dobyns as chairman. QUI VlVE? (Continued from Page 1) men were called to Washington to be inspired. The results obtained failed to give any assurance. The impression is abroad that the re- cent depression proved that the capitalistic system is st failure. Nothing is further from the truth. A change is necessary. There are abuses which need correction. The disproportion between the fahu- lolls wealth of our captains of in- dustry and the poverty of so many of our citizens proves that the distribution of wealth needs ad- justing. Amerlc has been pros- perous and her citizens have lived far better than those of most other countries. For one hundred and forty years, capitalism Ires done well for this country. It must have merit. Of late the common man has been told that his only safety lies in throwing himself up- on the tender mercy of the gov- ernment. He has bccn asked to trade his birthright, Hberty, for temporal security. The situation as it has thus far developed shows the industrious and the skilled supporting the fearful and the lazy. Many examples have been found of those who are unwilling to quit relief work to accept steady employment. If men in general are going to give up their self respect and their self reliance, it will mean that the government in the end will run industry and commerce. This has never been successfully done by any govern- mcnt, where it has been Inaugur- ated, the common man has lost his liberty, and in the end he finds himself in abject slavery. Witness the condition in Russia today. It is encouraging to note the re- turn of the old-fashioned spell- ing bee. Of late, leaders in edu- cation have gone far afield. Voca- tional training has been the watch word and fundamental training has been neglected. Business men have been complaining, more and more lately, about the type of stu- dent that is being turned out by the schools. The demand on all sides is for office workers who can spell and do simple problems in arithmetic. They want some one who can think a little. Me- utter demoralization." Houma, La., Feb. 11. (E).In an effort to clear newsstands of ob- jectionable magazines the decency committee of the Catholic Youth Organization in St. Francis de Sales parish has issued a check list on magazines that is similar to the list in the motion picture field compiled by the National Le- gion of Decency. The Rev. Jerome A. Drolet, as- sistant pastor and director of the CYO, has announced he will send a copy of the list to any organiza- tion "that wishes to avoid the un- pleasant necessity of wading through such filth." A committee will draw up check lists periodi- cally. Not onlY will members of the St. Francis de Sales CYO refrain from reading or buying indecent maga=ines, but a resolution calls upon them to withhold all patron- age from business places that con- tinue to display such reading mat- tar.

Jonesboro, Feb. 15.--The Bless- ed Sacrament school association sponsored a benefit Valentine par- ty Monday evening, February 15, in the K. C. home. Cards, tango and valentine con- tests were enjoyed throughout the evening. Prizes were given to the winners. The Valentine motif was clever- ly carried out in the decorations and refreshments which consist- ed of heart shaped cookies and coffee. Hostesses were Mesdames T. W. L. Murray, Raymond Dupwe, Willard Woodward and Mary Col- leson. Campaign For New Diocese Of San Diego Planned San Diego, Feb. 7. (E).--A fi- nancial campaign for the needs and development of the new Dio- cese of San Diego will be con- ducted next month by the Most Rev. Charles Francis Buddy. The entire amount raised will be used for the purposes of the i drive as no professional promoters or paid solicitors will be employ- ed. The campaign will be con- ducted by the Bishop's lay and clerical committee. All the expenses incident to the drive, such as stationery, print- :ing, postage, etc., one man has al- ready promised to cover. Included among the projects planned by Bishop Buddy are a i home for the aged, a tubercular :sanitarium, convents for catechists, a home for working girls, greater accommodations for orphans, pro- motion of a recreational program for children of the streets and al- leys, reduction of parochial debts, support of chaplains for county hospitals, and the improvement and construction of rectories in the poor parishes. It is estimated that the sum of $200,000 will be required to meet the present needs and this becomes the campaign's quota. i t chanlcl performers are plentiful, i the demand is for a little intel- ligence and practical ability. So many pupiI-s are taking shorthand and typewriting in high school to- day that they learn neither to spell nor to write. The money of our citizens is being squandered right and left, but nowhere is the reek- less spending to le purpose than in the field of education. Build- ings and equipment, libraries, teachers' salaries and degrees are stressed as requirements for recog- nition by educational associations. No one seems to care whether the teachers have any ability to teach or not as long as they have a de- gree. Teachers axe attending sum- met schools to the detriment of their health, to receive the covet- ed degree. Supervisors are send- ing out ridiculous orders constant- ly. The shame of it is that our Catholic educ.a.tors have allowed themselves to be drawn into this mess. Such education is a dis- grace to our national common sense. The people should rise up and demand that this caricature of education cease. It is time to run these jokers out of the educa- tional field and put real educa- tors in their places. The Church being divinely commissioned to teach should show the way. Quebec Officials Promise Anti- Red Campaign Quebec, Feb. 14. (E).--"To com- promise with Communism is out of the question. War against this enemy of our institutions and tra- ditions will be waged relentless- ly." This was stated in the Speech from the Throne read by Lieuten- ant Governor E. P. Patenaude, of Quebec, at the opening of the Quebec Legislature. The Speech from the Throne re- views in general terms the plans for the session as prepared by the Quebec Government, and is pre- pared by the l'emier of the pro- vince and his cabinet. Referring to the drive against Communism, the speech adds: "To insure success of the strug- gle, our police force has been re- organized. Legislation Will be proposed to you respecting this and other legislation relating to the proper administration of justice." ---.--.-_.__ Montreal, Feb 14. (E).----Continu- ing their drive against Commu- nism, Provincial Police closed )remises here reported to have been the center of a Communist school, where it was stated there were from 50 to 60 pupils being taught the principles of Commu- nism. Police made their raid be- fore the children arrived for class, and stated they had confiscated a quantity of Communistic litera- ture. SEMINARY COMMEMORATES CORONATION OF POPE PIUS (Continued from page 1) prevail . . . it is the expression of hope that before he is called to the splendors of the eternal court, the world may profit still more, for its peace, its happiness, and its truth, from the glorious life of our Pontiff, to whom it owes so much, and that even the most re- mote and alien and rebellious of nations may soon yield to the sweet influence of the limitless fatherly love of one of the great- est benefactors the world has ever known, the marvelous, the splen- did, the beloved Plus XI, the Pope of Peace, the Pope of the Mis- sions." Seminarians Give Program In the evening the seminarians assembled in the auditorium to participate in a symposium of the Pontificate of Pius XI. The Rev. Mr. James W. Nugent, master of ceremonies for the occasion, open- ed the program with a tribute to the Holy Father and then present- ed a group of the seminary chor- isters, Messrs. Jos. Nelson, Frank Lavin, Amos Enderlin, Arthur Pietrowiak, Joseph Erbrick, James McDonnell. Under the direction of Mr. Frank McKee, they sang, "Long Live the Pope." The Rev. Mr. James J. Allen, assistant director of music, was at the piano. The Rev. Mr. Francis E. Mur- phy gave an interesting sketch of the life of Plus XI, reviewing the outstanding events in his rich and varied career as seminary professor, renowned librarian, Pa- pal Nuncio to Poland during the distressing period of the World War, Archbishop of Milan, a mem- ber of the Sacred College of Cardi- nals and closed with a graphic description of the conclave that elected Cardinal Ratti to the See of Peter. The Rev. Mr. Leo F. Vifquain voiced the renewed gratitude of the students of St. John's Seminary for the title "Home Missions Semi- nary," which His Holiness gave to His Excellency, our Most Rev- erend Bishop, when he made his "ad limina" in 1934.

Mass Said for Repose Of Film Actors' Souls Paris, Feb. 14: (E).His Emi- nence Jean Cardinal Verdier, Archbishop of Paris, presided at the requiem M for the repose of the souls of a and artisans of the motion picture world who died during the year. The service :has been held annually since 1934 at Joinville-le-Pont, a Paris su- burb where a number of studios are located. "The cinema," he said, "is an awakener of souls. The inventor of the cinema contributed singu- larly to the development of hu- manity. Your mision in incompar- ably geat. The popular soul calls more and more for betterment in all domains. Sooner or later, this will lead to a better order through the giving to the masses of ele- ments that instruct and elevate. This is your task. You are, per- haps, the most powerful artisans for the welfare of our people and :the world. The Rev. Mr. Nugent summariz- ed the most important parts of the Encyclicals, saying: "Plus XI, like his illustrious predecessors, has looked down from the watch tower of the Vatican, and, look- ing down with the firm love and tender firmness of a father, has been pained by the ills that af- flict mankind . . . so from the abundance of his heart, his mouth has spoken.., and his words are the immortal Encyclicals..."

Gal- lagher, vice rector, Private Cham- berlains to His Holiness, were .guests of the seminarians. Catholic Writers Hear Radio Leader Condemn Novelists New York, Feb. 14. (E).Modern novelists who over-emphasize sex, scandal, crime and similar sub- jects were attacked for "not tell- ing the truth with an accurate per- spective," by Maj. James G. Har- bord, U. S. A. (Retired), Chairman of the board of the Radio Corpora- tion of America, speaking here be- fore the Catholic Writers Guild. General Harbord, who is a non- Catholic, spoke on "History in the Making and Writing." Many prominent literary figures were among the 300 persons who at- tended. Assailing what he termed "pop- ular dabblers in history," or writ- ers who claim to have debunked certain historical personages, Gen- eral Harbord said that unfortu- nately their taste for scandal had reached into fiction. "The novel telling us what is going on beneath the surface of historic happenings," he added, "is a valuable source of history for careful writers. For many care- less and casual readers it is the only source of information on th( life of previous times and their own. Contamination of this spring spreads poison." Organizations such as the Cath- olic Writers Guild can do much to fight this dangerous pollution of our literary, he declared. In par- ticular, he attacked that group of present-day novelists who, he said "persistenly ask our sympathy for men and women utterly devoid of worthy ambitions, ideals and char- acter; described as victims of forces against which struggle is useless." Colleges Face Grave Situation Due to Taxes Chicago, Feb. 14. (}0.  Church colleges in this country are facing a critical financial situation and their continued existence is threatened by federal and State tax policies, because of increased levies on gifts, property and in- come of church institutions, Dr. Gould Wickey, of Washington, D. C., secretary of the National Con- ference of Church Related Col- leges, asserted at a meeting of the organization here. "In Nebraska," Dr. Wickey said, "three efforts have been made to levy taxes of this sort against church and voluntary colleges. At the same time, general taxes for politically - controlled education were increased. In Indiana, church and voluntary colleges were called upon to fight similar tax bills which would have crushed them. "American churches are saving taxpayers far in excess of $50,000,- 000 annually by their maintenance of educational institutions." Deaf-Mutes Form Basketball Team Chicago, Feb. 11.

Matheo Crawley, SS. CC., who for the past three years has been preaching retreats to the missionaries of the Orient, has been forced to abandon his work in China dae to the Sino-Japanese hostilities, according to a letter re- ceived at the Sacred Heart Semi- nary ]]ere. Father Matheo was sent to the Orient by the Holy Father at the request of numerous Bishops and Vicars Apostolic, who had heard of his remarkable work throughout Europe and South America, in preaching devotion to the Sacred Heart. He began his work in 1907 when he Was sent by his Su- perior to Europe to recuperate from illness. Given up by doctors he arrived at Paray-le-Monial in a dying state, not to ask for a cure but to prepare himself for death. He says it was there while making the Holy Hour that he felt himself suddenly cured and at the same time was inspired to organize and propagate the work of the Enthronement of the Sac- red Heart in the Family. He was invited to preach a long series of retreats to the clergy and Religious of the Orient, a work that he undertook three years ago and which has taken him through Japan, Korea, Manchuria, China and the Philippines. He then re- turned to China intending to pene- trate into the interior, when he was obliged to abandon his plans, because of the present war. Father Matheo agaih returned to Manila, at the invitation-of the Bishops, and is now in Indo- China. Priest and His Father Breakfast Speakers Albany, N. Y., Feb. 14.
