SUBIACO COLLEGE Waahington's Birthday Washington's Birthday was fitting- ly observed by students and a few members of the faculty by the cus- tomary big hike. The weather, which had for days before been unpleasant- ly chilly and wet, was ideal for a hol- iday outdoors, the warm sun lighting up a serene and glorious sky. This year the day brought the party of merry-makers to the rarely traversed heights of the mountains four miles southeast of the college, known popu- laxly as the Fourth Ridge. The spot, isited atmost annually by the stu- dents ince the founding of Subiaco, presents a scene of Nature's awe-in- spiring grandeur and rugged beauty. Here, after a two hours' steady walk and arduous climb within hearing dis- tance of the roar of the magnificent waterfalls, camp was' pitched and class work, for once at least, com- pletely forgotten. The mystery of the solemn forest and frowning cliffs lur- ed the lads in parties in various di- rections to indulge in their special hobbies, some to go kodaking,, some to scale the highest peak of the ridga and some even, it is said, to withdraw to a lonely spot to write poetry. Whatever may have been the occupa- tion of each one, the day was spent in a delightful and interesting man- nor and will live long in the memories of all who participated in the outing. Ready for Baseball Due to the mild winter interest in baseball has been kept alive through- out the season. The several junior ldagues have already been organized, and whenever weather conditions al- low theteams areout practicing for the coming spring, Of the Varsity team all members of last year have returned excepting the Murphy bro- thers of Pine Bluff. Their places will be filled by. Knoff and Steve Griffin. To date ten games have already been scheduled with out teams.

The prospectus was read and ex- plained. Sapiro Plan This is one of the largest enter- prises that has come to Northeast Ar- kansas in the lat;t [:ive years. It is the first rice milt to be built on the Sa- pits plan, that is the,building of a cooperative nonprofit association mill, in which the profit is given the grow- eln as to the number of bushels of rice he mills. This will be a subsidiary company to the Arkansas Rice Growers Co-op- erative Association, which is affiliat- ed with the Federal Farm Bureau. This mill by being the first cooper- ative rice mill to be built in the Unit- ed States will be closely watched by other cooperatives. Canvass District Committees were formed and a sy.- tematic canvass wiIl be made of this rice district Subscription lists were circulated for the common stock, and every member present subscribed for one share each, which is all that can be taken in the original issue The farmers and merchants sub- scribed freely for the preferred stock, I niece, Signorina Mimi Clementi. The niece of the Cardinal was nmrried in the latter's private chapel to Deputy Aldo Finzi, Under Secretary of the Interior. The Cardinal performed the religious ceremony. Premier Musso- ]rid acted as besb man for the groom. During the course of his brief re- marks, the Cardinal referred to the presence of the Prime Minister, and was quoted as saying that Mussolini "For his energy and devotion to the country was chosen to save the nation and restore her fortune." No Understanding Several Italian newspapers inter- preted the Cardinal's words as indi- cating that an understanding has been reached between the Vatican and the Quirinal, and even went so far as to say that Pope Plus and Cardinal Gasparri, Papal Secretary of State, were in agreement with the senti- ments of Cardinal Vannutel]i, draw- ing the inference that the latter's statement of Vatican policy. An official statement, published in the Ossetwatore Romans, however, declares that no understanding exist- ed between the Pope and Cardinal Vannutelli,  or between Cardinal Gas- I. Of[;.

NAMING STREETS LATEST QUESTION BOTHERING DUBLIN Dublin, Feb. 26.--Keen,interest is being manifested in the impending re- *vision of the nomenclature of the Dub- lin streets, the majority of which are named after English viceroys and aristocrats. It is proposed to elimi- nate the names derived from individ- uals of no historical eminence, and to substitute titles commemorating na- tional events, renowned personalities and religious sentiments. in modern times several Dublin thoroughfares were named after Catholic personages, including St. Joan of Arc and Blessed Oliver Plun- was found dead in his home recently ket.

The verdict of the th British authorities refused to jury being that the deceased came to his death from natural causes. The last time he was seen alive was on Monday, when a man stopped by to read a letter from an absent sister. On his person there was found a pocketbook containing $32.65 and some papers. On a card was written: "Read the other side." "I am a Catholic and if I should get sick or die, please call the near- est Catholic priest, but if none can be found, please somebody whisper in my ear, Lord have mercy'upon me, a sin- ner." The deceased had a son, James Kafkee, who lives several miles from him, but they had not spoken for sev- eral years, having been estranged over some trivial matter, it is said. He was notified and took charge of the body for burial. The deceased owned a farm of about 80 acres of land which was only slightly improved. The house where he lived alone was a small, cheap structure. He Was about 70 years of age.
