Spiritual Retreats Urged By Verein Head St. Louis• (E).--A spiritual re- treat as a link between war-time service and civilian life, is urged in the March Letter • of the Rev. Edward A. Bruemmer, second vice president of the Catholic Central Verein of America and director of the Verein's Youth Movement. Noting that "even now some are returning from the scene of battle, wounded by enemy shot and shell," Father Buremmer asks. "What are we going to do for  these young men? What will be our policy in helping them?" "The problem demands the co- operation of the Government, the employer, the family, the doctor, and the priest," he continues. "And in the final analysis, the priest, backed by the Catholic organiza- tion, can do more than all the rest combined to help our young men. We must begin now to make it possible for every one of them to make a spiritual retreat on their return home. The solitude, the curative properties of spiritual comfort, the Sacraments and their wonderful effects will combine to restore the men to the proper per- spective, and will make their minds clear of those things which are best forgotten." "We are spending vast sums for defense, for physical comfort, for recreation," Father Bruemmer concludes, "surely it is not asking too much to spend some money to help the soldiers forget the past and look to the future with hope that is born of faith and love." The proposal for spiritual re- treats will have a prominent place .on the program at the annual con- vention of the Central Verein here August 22 to 26. You will quickly be deceived, if you only look to the outward ap- pearance of men.

THE GUARDIAN, FEBRUARY 27, 1942 Marvl00noll Nun Describes Air Att.acle on Hawaii Maryknoll, N. Y. ().--Caught between bombs and machine-gun fire on an exposed hilltop during the Japanese attack on Hawaii, one of a group of Maryknoll. Sis- ters who were on an errand of mercy relates how they escaped without any injury, in a letter just received at the Motherhouse here. Of the 85 Maryknoll Sisters in Hawaii, they were the only ones directly exposed during the bombardment. The letter is from the Superior at Kaneohe, T. H. "The day began with bright sunshine," Sister Cecile, the su- perior, writes in part, "giving promise of the usual quiet of a Sunday morning in Hawaii. As the congregation came out of Mass, all watched the planes cir- cling overhead in what we thought were normal maneuvers• There was a distinct sound of bombing and machine gun fire. As we gazed into the sky, we looked in vain for the target usually attach- ed to one of the planes. Still we suspected nothing• ' "I walked over to the school to attend the women's Sodality meet- :ing. Coming across the yard, after the meeting, I looked up again at the planes arid the smoke, but thought nothing of it, so accus- J tomed had we become to air man- There was a sharp puff three or Luckily. the grass was tall. , four feet way.

"I had just reached the con- vent when one of our parishion- ers came to say there was a big fire at the naval base and that many were injured. This being a time when Mass was being said in many places, we wondered if there would be a priest at the scene. Our own pastor, Father Timothy, was saying a late Mass at a mission chapel. There was a chance of intercepting Father Lo- gan at another outlying mission, before he started back to Hono- lulu• Our informant offered to take us in his car to try to contact Fa- ther Logan• "The route was over a high hill, where we got out to see the fire• Just then two groups of planes came out of the clouds and drop- ped their bombs. A shell whistled past us--a sound I shall never forget! "There was an explosion behind us and, at the same time, some- thing hit the ground in front of us, sending the dirt high in the air. "Then on a radio we heard the announcer saying, 'This is no sham battle. This is the real McCoy!'

BIES Editor-in-Chief, Catholic Action of the South The Second Child, and the Third The other night we listened toin fact, joined in a discussion among laymen as to who was usually more pampered or spoiled: The eldest or the youngest child in the family) It was an interesting and heated debate, both sides quoting cases and relating personal experiences. We derived one particularly constructive idea from this unusual verbal fray, namely, how much quicker would we move to- wards the acquisition of life's happiness and the world's wet- fare if, instead of having study clubs to teach the fine points in hog culture, better politics and social justice, we organized study groups among parents to bring out the tricks in successful child read- ing! Anyhow--who turns out better, the first or the last child? It most- ly depends on how the individual in each case is handled. Jealousy, unconsciously • elicited or instilled by thoughtless parents, has a great deal to do with the future dispo- tion or character of a child. Were you ever, as a little child, homesick, away frpm your moth- er? If it happened toy and you were old enough t) °u'register impressions, you never can forget that frightening feeling of being left all alone in the world. It was the most cruel experience of your life. A young child, the first born, goes through the same mental trial of fire when his mother sudden- ly leaves him and is taken to the hospital• He, who had been the idol of the house and the center of attention, is figuratively, walked over and pushed out of the way in the nervouS" and distracted rush anticipating the coming event• He feels sorely neglected. Even Moth- er had not paid him much atten- tion in the last few weeks. He cannot understand it; he is hurt. Then, one day he is taken to the hospital• His delight and joy run l high; the anticipation of seeing Mummie again is almost too much for him. And what happens? Mother hugs and kisses him, and happily and proudly shows him his baby sister as her new and cherished possession. Right then something snaps in the little boy's heart. Parents should be able to iden- tify the young child's feeling in connection with the arrival of a new baby. Instead of getting him to think that he is cast aside, he should be convinced that he is particularly secure in his parents' affection, that he shares the love, "care and pride of ownreship lavished upon the new member of the group rather than to be teased, threatened and constantly reminded that he will lose some- thing thereby. Too often the baby receives all the attention from the family, the relatives and the vis- itors for a period of months. When the next to the youngest is thus misplaced, he cannot help but ex- perience jealousy. Thus it may happen that the elder or eldest child becomes the least affable and amenable, Mmply because he has been given the impression that he has been and is "short- changed." And then again, one the •other hand, the one or the ones born after the first may be impressed with the idea of not getting a square deal, if they are not treated thoughtfully. To begin with, it so often happens that the attitude of the parents toward the second child is naturally different• The parental thrill, the all-absorbing interest, the intense attention :caused by the first born, diminish, in many cases, for the ones who I follow. The more they come, the more they are taken for granted• Still, parents should never lose sight of the fact that each child is, in his own mind, the center of the universe. Sd it happens that the second baby is not considered so cute, smart and interesting as the first one. As a matter of fact, he may be superior, but the parents do not realize it, because they do not give him as much time and atten- tion as they did the first Child. This is particularly true if the second is of the same sex. Then :the element of novelty is lacking, and parental planning for the child's future is not so freshly stimulated. The eldest child will receive more flattering attention• Parents can hardly help it. His "growing big" is commented on, his first lit- tle trousers are. appraised and ad- mired, his entering school is a great family event. And when he starts to read' or he rattles along the sidewalks on his roller skates, all those events are solemnly marked down in the recording album, where kodak pictures from his babyhood on are kept up to date. The second child is, most of the time, deprived of this adula- tion. He is often, as a matter of fact, made to wear the older one's hand-me-downs. All this may not affect the younger one greatly, as long as he is little• But once he begins to understand and realize conditions, this excess of favoritism is bound to have undesirable effects on his character. He may become some- what embittered and jealous, or it may give him an inferiority complex--an idea that he is not good enough. Now, what is the answer? Which child will be the bestthe first the second, or the last? It all de- pends on the consideration am wisdom of the parents. The last one in a large family, as a rule, is more apt to be spoiled, for he is Mummie's "weak" baby always and the helpless adopted little one of the elder children. Parents should ever guard against inequal- ity in their love for their children METRAILER AND HART Leaders in Better •/SHOE REPAIRING And • SHOE MAKING at moderate prices SINCE 1899 Shop No. 1 Phone 9"/25 II0 E. 4th St. Shop No. 2 Phone 4-0"/16 12tb & Main I i i i | F.H.
