(E).--A warning has been issued here against the ac- tivities of a man about 75 years of age, claiming to be recently returned to this country from Poland, who seeks "loans" from Catholic priests and institutions to settle hotel bills and to ob- tain transportation to other cities. A check on the man's activi- ties here revealed that he is known in a half-dozen other cities, and that he carries in a notebook the names of priests and institutions in various places including New York City, Washington, D. C., Detroit and Chester, Pa. In one place, the man is said to have sought instruction and to have received Baptism at the hands of a priest, despite that records in this city show that he claimed to be a Catholic at the time of his mar- riage two-score years ago. Buffalo police took the man into custody for investigation, but released him next day be- cause his particular activities are not covered by the law.

Our all-out defense is not new to . , FROM the mission either. They have been making such an effort in defense of Christ and His Church since the Apostles first went forth to teach all nations. Now more than ever the spirit of sacrifice is being intensified. If we are willing to sacrifice for the defense of our nation; how much more willing we must be to sacrifice for the defense of Our Lord and those who are laboring patiently for Him in the mission fields. In these uncertain days we can be sure of one thing--that the missions with our help can and will win souls for God. Like to the tibking of a clock, acts of love for God are multi- plied in the ,life-f the frequent, and daily, Communicant. The con- stant thought of yearning love for union with Jesus Christ keeps alive the spirit of Divine Charity so that the frequent Communicant is leading a life filled with the thought of God and of His love.
