(E)--America and the British Commonwealth of Nations have the opportunity of building a new world which will assure freedom and lasting peace based upon universal justice, tits Emi- nence Arthur Cardinal Hinsley, Archbishop of Westminister, de- clared in a broadcast from London to the second annual Conference on Religion at Columbia Univer- sity here, "Shoulder to shoulder, in peace and in war, we can and we must work on a spiritual reform on which depends the restoration of lasting peace in this strife-wracked world," Cardinal Hinsley said. Envisioning the opportunity which lies ahead for Americans and Britons, Cardinal Hifisley said: "After standing shoulder to shoulder in the present war, we must face with one heart and soul the no less formidable task of building a new order which will assure us an era of freedom through a peace founded on uni- versal justice. And by justice I mean no steel-cold calculating op- portunism, but a law of love, which sees in our fellowmen hnages of God, and souls precious in His sight, because redeemed by the sacrifice of His Son. Scorns Superman Idea "Away then with the superman-- The superman and his totalitar- ian despotism. No blood nor soil nor race superiority for Christian men. We must redress the hid- eous wrong and cruelties infUcted i by the Herrenvolk on Jews and Gentiles and on peace-loving na- tions. We must assert the un- changing principles of .Christian justice and charity." Cardinal Hinsley spoke in part' as follows: " 'Whence, are we and whither go we?' These were the test ques- tions which the missionaries from Rome were required to answer at the court of a Saxon King, when thy sought his consent to preach the Gospel to the people of Eng- land. They are the everlasting problems of every age--today more urgently do these problems con- front us. How came we to exist and what is the end and purpose of existence? "Are we a chance outgrowth of primitive slime? Is our end to re- turn to primeval mud? Both rea- son and Christian revelation give the lie to the popular scientists who would have us believe in any such blind origin and narrow des- tiny. That is to big an overdraft on credulity. Our intelligence fortified by the message of Christ gives the answer which of old was received and welcomed by simple folks and by the wise. God made us and not we ourselves. And God made us to be happy eternally with Him, and in Him. Augustine and his missionaries came here to proclaim a universal declaration of independence--the freedom of the human soul under God. Their message to the Saxons was the same as the Apostles "o Christ had carried from the shores of Palestine along the coast of the Mediterranean and even to the Far East. It was a message of the liberty of the sons of God, of the perfect law of liberty. Bulwark of Democracy "In the Western hemisphere as in every place where it was re- ceived, that message has been the bulwark of real democracy, the foundation of peace through the reign of law, the curb of riotous selfishness and tyrannous power. "The founders of the Constitu- tion of the United States, like the framers of our great Charter, were men inspired by the fundamental principles of Christianity. Equality of all men beforc the Creator was their first principle. Class war is not the recognized basis of your life. Idolatry of power is not ad- mitted into your democratic at- titude. There is equality of op- portunity for all men, children of God. The Faith of your Fathers is a beacon light to the present and to the future. Our two great nations, American arid British, living to- gether by the guidance of the past, united in spirit and in truth will be able to play a decisive part to- wards assuring to all men of every race the inalienable rights with which they are endowed by their Creator--the right of life, the right of liberty, the right to the pursuit of real happiness. Building A New Order "Standing shoulder to shoulder in the present war, we must face with one heart and soul no less formidable task of building a new order which will assure us an era of freedom through a peace found- ed on universal justice. And by justice I mean no steel-c01d cal- culating opportunism, but a lew of love which sees in our fellowmen images of God, and souls precious in His sight, because redeemed by the sacrifice of His Son. We are all children of'one Father, as we pray, so must we act, not for sel- fish interests but for the common good, "America and the British Com- Bibles Advance In Price On March 15th Last January 15, publishers of the Holy Bible an- nounced an increase in price on all bindings of the Holy Bible.

Branch- es are affiliated with the Catholic Union, it behooves them to work with the Union on these points. It would be fine if every Branch would set aside one Sunday of every month to go to Communion in a body and see that every mem- ber is present, both Juveniles and Adults. A communion breakfast could also be arranged and speak- ers for the breakfast could be ap- pointed to speak on appropriate subjects. Hope is expressed that this Monthly Communion will be in operation in every Branch in the near future. Catholic [ Business Women's Club The Catholic Business Women's lub will hold their regular monthly dinner meeting, Monday, March 8th at the Freiderica Hotel at 6:15 o'clock. The speaker of the evening will be Mrs. Eugene Teeter, chairman o the Red Cross Committee for the Recruiting of Nurses, whose topic will be the life of Florence Night- ingale. Every Mass attended, every Holy Communion received, every visit paid to the Blessed Sacrament is a step nearer Heaven, an addi- tional reason in virtue of which we should see God and His Blessed Mother. kelreal A1 Scholasuca L By Fr. am r The students of St. Seholastica Academy spent February 24, 25 and 26 in making the annual re- treat. Most of the non-Catholic students, as well as all of the Ca- tholic students in the high school made the retreat and quite a num- ber of the non-resident pupils were given accommodations at the school so that they might have a better opportunity to keep up the retreat for the entire three days. The Roy. Ambrose Branz, O.S.B., a member of the Subiaco Aca- demy faculty, was the retreat mas- ter, and by his excellent confer- ences won the hearty response of all the retreatadt. His zeal and his understanding of the problems of today's youth made his lec- tures particularly helpful. Each day the students partici- pated in the Missa Recitata and' received Holy Communion at 8:30. There were four lectures during the course of the day, and the time between lectures was spent in private reading, meditation, and prayer. The last conference of the day was followed by Benedic- tion of the Blessed Sacrament. On the final day the Papal Bless- ing was given before Benediction and the retreat ended with the singing of "Holy God' We Praise Thy Name" by all the retreatants. Chicago Prlest-Chaplaln Reported Missing In Action Chicago. (E)--James M. Listen, father of the Rev. James M. Lis- i ton, has received word from the War Department that his son, an Army chaplain, has been reported missing in action. He is the first priest of the Archdiocese of Chi- c,go to be listed as a casualty in the present war. A native of Chicago, Father Lis-. ton attended Quigley Preparatory 'Seminary and St. Mary of the Lake Seminary, Mundelein, Ill. talking at Sunderland. The Nonconformists, he said, have given up all but 30 of the 1,401 schools they had in 1902, and the Church of England has sur- rendered nearly 3,000--an average of about 70 schools a year for 40 years. Catholics have not only held on to their schools but have tdded 200 to the number they had in 1902--the year in which the Bal- four education act was passed. Today Catholics have 1,266 ele- mentary schools. "All that is necessary to solve the schools prolem," said Fr. Somerville, "is to cease penalizing the biggest minority in the coun- try and to leave the oppression of minorities to the totalitarian coun- tries whose methods we are fight- mg again in this war." Parish Mothers' Club Says Rosary | During Black-out Shreveport, La. {E)--Notice of a State-wide surprise black-out came when the monthly party of the St. John's Mothers' Club was in full swing. As the timeg was too short to cover the win-* dows in the school basement, lights were put out when the black-out signal sounded and more than a hundred members and guests sat in darkness. The Rev. Kevin Nowlan was asked to speak, but he had a better idea. He began the rosary. Back In U.S. After A Year Of War San Francisco. (E)--Lieut. (J.G.) John F. Davis, a University of Notre Dame alumnus and holder of the Distinguished Flying Cross, is back in the United States after a year of tough air fighting in the South Pacific war theater.

The naval hero was graduated from Notre Dame in 1938 and won his wings at Pensacola, Fla He was at Pearl Harbor when the Japanese attacked on December 7; 1941, and his plane was destroy- ed.

(l--His Eminence Ar- thur Cardinal Hinsley, Archbishop of Westminster, is gravely ill. The Last Sacraments have been administered to the distinguished churchman at his Hare Street house in Buntington, Herts. This is the house which the late Mon- signor Robert Hugh Benson be- queathed to the Archbishops of Westminster. Several times lately Cardinal Hinsley has suffered slight heart attacks, both before and during in- terviews he granted and other en- gagements, but he carried on af- ter taking restoratives. The last public function he attended was the luncheon tendered Francis P. Matthews of Omaha, Nebr.. Su- preme Knight of the Knights of Columbus, who recently completed a visit to Great Britain in his ca- pacity as Chairman of the Execu- tive Committee of the National Catholic Community Service, one of the use organizations. Sir Maurice Cassidy, noted heart specialist, who has been attending Cardinal Hinsley, said that the Cardinal had' shown some improve- ment in his condition, which be- came grave Saturday night, and that he was free from pain. How- ever, His Eminence did not main- tain the improvement he had pre- viously shown. His Excellency the Most. Roy. William Godfrey, Apostolic Dele- gate to England, called at the Cardinal's residence, and imparted to His Eminence a special blessing from His Holiness Pope Pins XII. Monsignor Francis Bickford called '* from neighboring St. Ed- mund's College. I The Only EstahlIshmeat in q/ I Arkansas designed, built al:J, r, I .,..,. ,. F. H.
