PAGE SIX THE GUARDIAN, SATURDAY, MARCH 10, 1923 MENA Aizxiliary Achve--Statlons Blessed-- City Happenings &apos;Though small in number, on ac- oount of the very disagreebale weath- er, the meeting of St. Agnes Auxiliary on Sunday afternoon, Feb. 25th, at St. Joseph's Academy, was large in re- suits. Plans were perfected for a food sale to be held on St. Patrick's day, and also for a social to take place the same evening in the old church building. Supper will be serv- ed from svven to eight o'clock and entertainment for young and old is being arranged for the occasion. Though by no means a novelty, a grab bag is always attractive and an ex- tra large one is being prepared for the enjoyment of the young folks. The hcky holder of the correct number her will be presented with a beauti- ful imported tablecloth of pure h'ish linen and, several other articles of fancy work will be disposed of in the same way. A pretty assortment of jellies and preserves will be included in the food sale, which, on account of the gener- ov donations already promised, seems an assured success. Would it not be helpful as well as interesting if our parishes would ex- change ideas and experiences through the columns of The Guardian, on profitable and successful entertain- merits, etc., given for the benefit of the church? Wont somebody, please, express an opinion on this subject ? Stations of the Cross The beautiful new Stations of the Crss were blessed and erected last Sunday evening by Very Rev. Dean GaBagher, with most impressive cere- monies. After the singing of the Veni, Creator by the choir, Father Gallag- her delivered a very interesting and instructive, sermon on lhe Stations o[ the Cross, its exalted position among Catholic devotions: high inlulgences to be gained by .making tb StaUot s devoutly, etc. One after another the malice Stations were elevated by Sahn Drioll and Ray Molter.

PRO'rESTAN'r bIINISTER OFFEIIS TO RETURN $50 TO SOLI)IERS BY K. ()F C. (By N. C. W: C. News Service Washington, D. C. March 4.--An unwrittm incident in the Knights of Columbus war history came to light here when CohmeI John T. Axton, chief of American chaplains, received a letter from a minister attached to the American United I'resbyterian Mission in India, inclosing a draft of $50, which he requested be turned over to some branch of the K. of C. "where it will smwe the best use for file privates of the Army." The wri- ter explained that the money repre- sented the value of athletic goods he had received :from tim Knights of Co- lumbus while on (tuly as chaplain at a bas.e hospital and which he had "is- sued to officers of the station with the result that "the boys did not benefil at all." High Sense of Iionor Colonel Axten decided that the case was not one that called for restitution and has returned the check. "Your whole record," said Col. Ax- ton in thin letter. "indicates that you are self-sacrificing, conscientious and painstaking, and that you r{ndered most excellent service in lhe Army. From persona] experience, the three chaplains in this office, one of whom iv a Roman Catholic, know that the use of athletic goods and similar ma- terials supplie(1 by the wtrious welfare m'ganizations was not limited to 'he enlisted personnel. The morals of officers had to be sust:fined and you were amply justified in using any or all of the equipment that wns sent to you as a contribution to the content- ment of the officers with whom .you were serving. Our expermnce tells ns that makerials were so abundant that if you had (liverted the entire consign- ment to whieh you refer in all proba- bility no hardship wouhl have been worked vpon the enlisted personnel of your hospital. We fully appreciate the very high sense of honor indicated by your aetion, but we feel that there is no necessity for the refund by you of any sum. The Catholic chaplain in this office expresses tile view that you could use this $50 to far better ad- vantage in the field where you are now laboring than to have it sent to some point in tbe Army. Most of our i stations are abundantly supplied with I those things that .contribute to the I moral and religious well-belng of the enlisted men. May God bless you in the work upon which you are engag- ed, keep yeu always as ]figh-minded as your action in this case indicates, bring you safe to the homeland at the conclusion efa successful tour of ser- vice in India and give us the privilege of some time knowing you personal- ly." AMERICAN GYblNASIUM IN ROME The first thoroughly American gymnasium to be erected in the an- ('lent Cry of Rome is now under course of construction by the Knights of Columbus, according to a report re- ceived at K. of C. national headquar- ters from Edward I,. Hearn of New Ym'k, commissioner for the Knights in charge of their welfare work in Italy under the auspices of Pope Pius XI. The phms of the gymnasium. approved by tlm Pope, call for hand- ball and basketball courts and for a minatm'e track for indoor athletics. The gymnasium is being erected ou priwte papal grounds .donated by the Pope for the K. of C. work, :for which an endowment of $1,000,000 was re- cently voted by the K. of C. supreme council. C. K.

COLLEGES SUBIACO COLLEGE Another series of high class pro- fessional entertainments for the com- ing year is now assured for Subiaco. Encouraged by the great success and p()pu]arity of the lyceum numbers presented at "the auditorimn during the past season, the College authori- ties signed a new contract this week with the White & Myers Agency of Kansas City. The contract calls for three further entertainments of a dramatic and musical nature to .be during the months of September, Oc- tober and November of this year. The White & Myers Lyceum Agency gives the assurance that the coming attrac- tions will equal in excellence the per- fornmnces of last season. Three.Act Comedy in Latin The Dramatic Club has undertaken a task never before attempted in its history. 'l?he play is a three-act come- dy in Lqtin, entitled: Sac(us Male- rum A Sack ,)f Apples. Being writ- ten in lmtin, only members of the Club who are students in the high school and college (tepartmmlts were available :for the cast. Naturally the comedy presents difficulties which are not encountered in plays written in the vernacular. Hen(c, very care- ful and accurate nemory work is re- quire& .In English language plays the actor can rely in some measure on his ability to improvise his text and say "'sonmthing like it" in case tlm exact words escape him momentarily. In Sac(us Malorum, however, should his memory fail him "tt auy time the result would be fatal. Instead of say- ing "something like it" he would in all probability say "something like nothing," and stand dumb and "dis- graced" before a snickering audience. Well aware of this danger, the au- thin" of the play lms wisely refrained from burdening any of the charac- ters with long and difficult passages, and no tragedy of tlfis sort is looked for. The play will be given on St. Benedict's Day, March 21, in honor of the Rev. Rector.
