21 I II I College, Academy and School LITTLE ROCK COLLEGE NOTES Little Rock College brings home the state Charhpianshlp. The purple and white basketeers brought home the state ChampionShip to the capitol city, yesterday when they defeated Henderson-Brown in a fast and furious battle. Neither team had lost  game and both were willing .to aut up their full strength to win.  Owing to the comparative ease with which the other games were played" the collegians from Little Rock were underrated This misap- prehension' did not last long yester- day afternoon when the collegians went on the floor with the grim de- telTnination to finish it at once. The game opened with a rush and crash. The evening star was Solly Mat- ', thews, the backfield idol of football days. Before the evening was done Solly had netted himself seven' goals. But Matthews was not the only star ["i f of the purple and white evening. Big Ed Zilky was hurling himsdlf about with panther speed wrecldng passing and smashing young hopes. The Hen- derson-Brown forward-soon realized that to get by over him or around him was impossible, so they made the best of a bad job and did some won- derful 19ng range artillery work at the basket, as a target. Capt. War- ner was at center, and his evening's work was well done. His opponent was worthy of him and so he showed his real mettle. The feature of the college boys' work was. lightening passing and faultless team work. They were to- gether all the time each one in his place and all over the floor. The final score was 31 to 16. A detailed account of the game and official score will be published next " week; Letters Awarded to College Athletes Lst Friday afternoon, the mem- bers of the Little Rock College foot- ball team received their letters. All the IPayers who had participated in thee or more games were presented with heavy white woolen sweaters bearing the one initial "L'. The sweaters are the gift of College Ath- letic Association. COLLEGES--NOTRE DAIIE Alarm clocks and early risers are assisting a thousand students at - Notre Dame to seg a new record for the observance of the lenten season at he university. Dispensed from the customary len, ten fasts the students have taken t upon themselves to ear Mass and to receive Holy Communion daily until Easter. :Throughout the entire school year hundreds of students approach . the Holy Sacrament daily but the special effot exerted at this time is expected to swell the number well be- yond a thousand. Special masses are said in the university church and in the dormitory chapels. Notre Dame graduates of 1908 have commissioned a sculptor in Washington to design a bronze bust of Very Rew John Cavanaugh, former ,, ": president of the university. When completed it will be placed in the new ,$5Q,000 Alumni hall which is now in the course of construction. Father Cavanaugh is, now stationed at the "L ......

SUBIACO COLLEGE NOTES 2 Ash Wednesday marked the begin- nines of th% annual Retreat at Subia- co. The Roy. Ft. Boniface acted as Retreat Master and preached four sermons daily, all of which were re- and elevating The ot4her hours of the day were spent in meditation and prayer. Of course stri silence was kep't during these three days in order that the :' minds of the boys would 'not be di- vetted. The Retreat closed' Sunday a. m., andS%he beys resulted their 'various duties ,and habits with the exception hat most of the worser habits had : of ]een abandoned. Two clashes between the Aademic and'Commerelal Classes have hap- "pened upon baseball diamond in and very thrilling first contest down in gloribus defeat to tune of Seven to five. of Ash Wednesday, the, Classical students came :with a rush and proceeded very ? I methodically to score a game in their favor. The score in this instance be- ing eight to seven. The third and deciding game no doubt will be played soon and we are confident that it will be a thriller. Last Monday night the Dramatic Club produced four very excellent little farces and made a decided hit. The play "Lone Tree Mine" was post- poned until after Easter owing to the unfortunate presence of our old "friend" whom we call "Flu." Most of the actors were stricken; as the rehearsals were so delayed and since the play was so difficult the Director found it impossible to stage it. The sketches were in the emergency thrown together as rapidly as possi- ble in order to accomodate those poe- ple who could not be notified of the change in plans. The plays were as follows: The Demon Telephone,o Memory feats by P. Williams, The Wonderful Tele- phone, April Fools, and Stupid Ser- vant. Parts were taken by G. Rob- ertson, L. Krebs, W. Thompson and P. Williams. The band and Glee Club also did much toward the success of the en- tertainment. P. Yeager and A. Selig sang a very beautiful song in a man- ner that was only rivaled by the way in which Mr. Bridwell sang the pretty little song entitled "Baby Shoes." The Cadets owing to the "flu" have lately been unable to do any strenuous drilling. The epidemic being now only a matter of history, it is expect- ed' that the drills will be resumed with increased rigor. PAPAL AUTHORIZATION FOR THE MARYKNOLL SISTERS Many who have not followed the development of the Catholic Foreign Mission Society of America are sur- prised to learn that there is, on the grounds of Marynoll SeminalT, a house occupied by over two score women helpers. One of these, a pro- fessed Dominican Sister, is engaged in forming the others into a religious body consecrated to the Cause of foreign missions. These initial efforts have lately re- ceived papal tanction. His Grace, Most Rev. Patrick J. Hayes, Arch- bishop of New York, under whose jurisdiction the Sisters come, has just received from the Sacred Con- gregation of Religious the authoriza- tion by which the Sisterhood, here- after to be known as the "Foreign Mission Sisters of St. Dominic," may now establish at MaryknolI a Canoni- cal novitiate. Steps are already un- der way by which all present mem- bers shall fulfil as soon as possible the Canonical requirements for re- ception and subsequent vows. All postulants hereafter received shall enter without further delay upon their period of probation, which will enable them to be missioned to the foreign field upon the completion of their novitiate. At present the duties of the Mary- knoll Sisters are. confined to the ac- tivities of Maryknoll at home. In the Field Afar office the daily mail must be answered. Field Afar subscriptions credited, circulars prepared, books kept, and a hundred other duties per= formed. The domestic responsibillti6s of the Seminary, convent, and Pre- paratory College at Scranton employ the services of others. In a word, one might say that without the co- operation of the Maryknoll Sisters, Maryknown itself could hardly con- tinue its manifold activities. There- fore all well-wlshers of Maryknoll and the missions will rejoice in this new evidence from the Head of the Church of confidence in the American Catholic Foreign Mission Society. POISONOUS WOOD ALCOHOL Even Chemists Cannot Distinguish It From Grain Alcohol by Lo6ks, Taste or Smell. (New York Times) Despite the fact that wood alcohol has become known as the Amerman .poison on account of the frequency with which cases of poisoning have been traced to it in the United States, there is still a lack of appreciation of its dangers and ef an understanding of its nature, according to Dr. Reid Hunt, a leading American authority on wood alcohol. He is head of the department of pharmacology of the medical s.chool of Harvard University. was formerly at Johns Hopkins, and was chief of the Division of Pharrr, a- cology of the United States Health Service. At the request of the Amer- ican Chemical Society he prepares a bulletin on wood alcohol in which h said : "The misconception of the dangers of wood alcohol evidently exist n,)* only among those who drink or ell 'alcoholic' beverages of unknow origin, but also to those who prepare 'drinks containing wood alcohol re1 sale, and perhaps also to those ,the sell wood alcohol to".the latter cla,'. "No other explanation of the recent THE GUARDIAN, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 1920. accidents is thinkable; for howevex sordid the motives and however reck- less of the manufacturers of spurious 'alcoholic' beverages may be, it is unreasonable to suppore that anyone would knowingly incur tae legal and other responsibilities for such a wholesale slaughter as has re- cently taken place. "As regards the question of the poisonous properties of wood alcohol, it is inconceivable that any ordinary intelligent person can now be in doub on this subject, tn view of the han- "dreds of cases of death and blindness resulting from its use. Twenty years ago, when such cases first began to 'be reproved, there was some reason for a little uncertainty on this suoject not only on the part of the public, but of chemists and of those physicians who were not familiar with ccrta: prarmacological experiments on dogs. The odor, taste, and other propertms of pure wood alcohol are so like those of ordinary alcohol that chemists were inclined to attribute the bad ef- fects from the former to the presence of impurities in the commercial sam- pies. But none of the impuritms in the latter are as poisonous or caute tim same effects as the absolately pure wood alcohol itself. "Poisonousness is an inherent qual- ity of wood alochol. It is as impos- sible to prepare non-poisonous wood alcohol as it is to prepare non-poison- ous prussic acid." OHIO MAN MADE K. OF C. DIRECTOR New York--Patrick H. McCarthy of Toledo has ben made a director of reconstruction work of the Knights of Columbus, his appointment being ratified at a meeting of the K. of C. committee an war activities held at the Commodore Hotel here yester- day. McCarthy has been a supervisor for the K. of C. for the past two years, operating in the Mid=West. The de- partment he will direct comprises the states of Nebraska, Kansas, Ok- lahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Colorado and the Dakotas. His duties comprise the initiation and supervision of additions to the K. of C. chain of suplementary voca- tional schools for ex-scrvice men and civilians. Fifty of these schools are now in operation with a total regis- tration of 150,000 pupils. The Knights plan to have 100 schools run- ning by early summer. McCarthy will commence his work by a rapid sin-coy of his department --one of the largest in the K. C. sys- tem. It seems to me that true falthful- hess to grace is best proved by stead- ily facing one's actual duties.-- Fenelon.

The de- mand for pearls is so great and the fisheries are being worked so con- tinually that new pearls do not have time to grow. Abstract of the Fastoral Letter (Continued From Page b) tional Catholic War Council, we have determined, for the ends o peacc, o maintain the spirit of union and co- ordination through the National Cath- olic Welfare Council. Under its di- rection, our needs and problems in the several fields o education an svcial reform will be carefully studied. Means will be taken to .secure and publish correct information on all matters affecting the Ctmrch and Catholic life. The work of our organ- izations will be developed and directed toward the fuller attainment of Cath- olic aims. Forei&m Missions. The growth of the Church in our country is due, ]principally, to mis- sionary labors. We are now enjoying their fruits, and we are deeply con- cerned that the harves should in. crease. But we can not forget that we owe a duty to the missions in other countries. Freely we have received; let us freely give in return. Quite recently, Pope Benedict XV made eloquent appeal to all the faith- ful in behalf of the Foreign Missions, To co-operate with his noble endeavor, we have established a special depart- ment which has for its object the care and furtherance of our missionary work. The problems which confront it are mere serious now and the need of action more urgent, on account of the changes and losses which the war has occasioned. We, therefore, look for a generous response to the Holy Father's appeal, and to that which we are making for the support and exten- sion of our Catholic Foreign Misgions. Needs of the Holy See In the midst .of the turmoil of war, the Holy Father gave his thought and energy without reserve to those in every country who are suffering and helpless. With the rest.oration of peace, he has redoubled his efforts. In our filal devotion, he finds comfort and reason to hope for the future. Our assistance at the present time will give him special consolation, ow- ing to the fact that, in so many other countries, his children are no longer able to share with him their scanty needs. Let us, on our part, fulfill their loyal desire. Let it suffice for American Catholics to know that the Holy Father with numberless demands upon him is in need. The National Shrine. In this regard we can not refrain from expressing ofir gratitude to the Holy Father fvr his unfailing counsel, direction and dncouragement, 15articu- lar]y in his recent Letter to the Bish- ops of the United States, in which he commends most cordially to our Cath- olic people the happy completion of the National Shrine of the Immacu- late Conception at the National Cap- ital, as a noble monument,of-our love for Mary Immaculate, the Celectial Patroness of the Church in the United States, and the glorious Queen of Peae. We have thus set before you, dearly o o  , , , . o o , , Ut In Omnibus Glorificetur Deus.

We have indicated the principles which must shape and develop our Catholic life in order that we may render effectual service to the Church and to our country. Let us once more remind you of two essential duties. The first, that you continually vff. up prayer and sup- plication for 11 men, beseeching the God of Mercies to direct their hearts in the way of peace aml concord. The second, that you show forth in your own lives, in your homes, your social intercourse and your dealings with others, the beauty of our Catholic Faith, its power to strengthen the sou] in trial, its efficacy for the ac- complishment of the duties which charity and justice prescribe. Doing these things, you will ad- vance the of God upon earth and give honor to our Lord Jesus Christ. Given at Washington, September " 26, 1919.

MALTA IMMIGRANTS BARRED FROM CANADA New York,--The only immigrants Canada wants are domestic, servants and farm laborers, declared Dr. R, T. Rutherford, Canadian immigration official at Ellis Island, who today or- dered 80 Maltese on their way to the Dominion deported to Malta. Despite the fact that Malta is under British rule, no more immigrants from that country will be accepted under any circumstances by Canada because of labor conditions there, he said ,adding the Canadian authorities are enfom- ing exclusion laws to the letter. FOUR PLANS URGED BY AMERICAN LEGION Washington -- Land settlement i all States for fmTner setice men, federal aid to encourage their pur- chase of .either rural or city homes, vocational education and adjustment of compensation based oR length of service were recommended by the- legislative committee of the Ameri- can Legion, which has been in session. here three days. Each veteran would' be given an option of one of the four- plans. The programme will be energetical- ly urged upon Congress, it was an- nounced ,and the "American Legion. does not hesitate to state that it pects definite action within the next. 60 days." CANONIZATION DATE (C. P. A.) It is believed, though not yet offi- cially announced, that tim date for the canonization of Blessed Joan of Arc will be May 16 instead of May 23, thus avoiding, in view of the difficul- ties of accomm.odations, an unneces- sarily long stay of visitors in Rome.
