PAGE FOUR THE GUARDIAN, FEBRUARY 19, 1943 Correspondence Course, Conducted By Seminary Students For Catholics And Non-Catholics Alike, Has Record Achievement In Fourth Year '['he Fourth Anniversary of the Correspondence Course at St. ,[,hn's Seminary marks its greatest success, both in enrollment of stu- dents and in results achieved. This happy circumstances hs come about from a two-fold cause: First, the gracious assistance of His Ex- cellency, the Most Reverend Al- bert L. Fletcher. and the coopers- titan of the Diocesan clergy; the second, the generous cooperation of the students of Morris Hall. His Excellency, Bishop Fletcher, kindly presiding at the Corres- ondence Committee's earlier meetings offered his help in so- liciting students for the Course. '['his he did by personally writing to all the pastors in the Diocese el  Little Rock, asking them to an- ,ounce from the altar the bone- :tits of the Correspondence CoUrse, both to Catholics and non-Catho- 'tics. The zealous clergy gladly cooperated, to such an extent that our facilities here at the Seminary were, for a time, inadequate to handle the steady stream of ap- plicants. At one time it was LIDO Cafeteria 615 MAIN STRET Lltth Rook, Arkmm .'l. r ' _r ....  " , s , J thought necessary to transfer some of the correspondents to other centers. But the situation was taken care of by the seminarians, for, as our Moderator, the Right Reverend Monsignor Joseph A.. Gallagher, said, "The Correspon- dence Course is really a part of your training." This too, in view of the fact that the student body in Morris Hall is smaller than in Vice-Rector The Rt. Rev. Msgr. Joseph A. Gallagher, Vice ReCtor of St. John's Home Missions Seminary, told the seminarians, when the nuhaber of students enrolled in the correspondence course looked greater than they' could handle: "The correspondence course is really a part of y, our training."

Not smaller in the number of students, but in active members, for the services of the Fourth year Theologians were de- nied the Correspondence Course because of early ordinations. The enrollment thus fal  is one hundred and eighty students, which is nearly double that of lst year. Slightly over half are Catholics who feel the need of an intelligent laity either for their own edification, or to dispel their non-Catholic friends' errors con- ccrning the teachings of our holy Faith. The remaining corres- pondents (nearly half) are non- Catholics, who wish to learn some- thing of what the Catholic Church "has to offer," or, as in some cases, they are anxious "to enter the true Church," but need the necessary course of instructions. We asl those who read this arti- cle to kindly remember in their prayers St. John's Correspondence Courses. It is a noble work whose office it is to carry the message of the Gospel. Notre Dame, Receives $100,000 Gift Notre Dame, in rE)--Establish- nent of the O'Shaughnessy Fine Arts Foundation ir/ the College of Arts and Letters of the University of Notre Dame, has been an- pounced by the Very Rev. Hugh O'Donnell, C.S.C., university presi- dent. The foundation was made possible through a gift of $100,000 received shortly after Christmas from I. A. O'Shaughnessy,' of St. Paul. The O'Shaughnessy Foundation, Father O'Donnell said, becomes a part of Notre Dame's plan, carried out through the cooperation of friends and benefactors, to streng- then the College of Arts and Letters in the face of the growing wartime tendency toward purely. technical and vocational aspects of higher education.

(El-- Com- memorating the fiftieth anniver- sary of the founding of Chronlque Sociale de France, His Eminence Pierre Cardinal Gerlier, Arch- bishop of Lyons and president of the commemorative committee, presided at a special religious ceremony in the Church of St. Pierre, Lyons, France. The sermon on the occasion re- called the generous labors and ac- complishments of the paper dur- ing its half-century of history for Catholic social .and religious ac- tion and the diffusion of the Ca- tholic Press. The publication ws founded in 1892 by a group of young Catholics .of Lyons, who were moved by the respiring teachings of His Holiness Pope I,eo XIII. At first their action was limited to Southeastern France, but later the sphere of influence was widened.

This "need has been sup- liied to a great extent by the Correspondence Course. Arch- bishop Spellman of New York showed his approval of the Course by a large donation to carry on the "Instruction by Mail" for the nen who are fighting for our country. There is no way of telling what "our boys" think of the Corres- pondence Course except by quot- ing their own words. We need add nothing further to the follow-. ing letters:" My dear Mr. Mc : None of the members of my family are Catholics and as a child [ attended the Methodist church. As soon as I could I gave it up and from that time until this have not attended ,any church. It has only been within the past year that I have ever given re- ligion any serious thought. This is due to having been fortunate enough to have shared the same hut with a young man who is a devout Catholic and working in the same office with another while stationed .at Camp Beauregard, La. These two men had made a study of Catholicism and knew of what !hey were talking. Many even- rags were spent in the discus- sion of religion. At'first I enter- ed into it along with others in our detachment, but after the second or third time I- realized that the meager knowledge I had on such matters amounted to nil, and from then on I listened. I became aware of an undevel- oped side of my life and since I have been at this camp I attended the Sunday Mass given by Father Lamb at this camp and he gave me the card I mailed to you re- questing this correspondence course. The course has proven very in- teresting to me and I find that it fits into the ideas I had believed 1. . Sometimes it will be a long time before my tests are mailed in to you. This will hot be due to laxity on my part, but the fact tthat my work takes up so much of my time. Also I am preparing to accept a commission as an of- ficer in the army and sometime 'in the near future will be moved from this camp to a school for t,Jning. I am planning on con- tinuing this study no matter where I may be. R.C.R. 22 Ordination* at Maryknoll For Latin-American Missions Mar,knoll, N.Y.
