Regular Meeting A regular meeting of the Council will be held next Tuesday, March 20, at 8 o'clock, every member is expect- ed to 0e present, as the meetings we are having now are live ones. There- fore don't miss this one, as it will be a good one. Membership Campaign Applications are coming in slowly, if we expect to have a class before the summer months, we had better get busy and bring in some applications. "The next class is set for April 15th, but with the applications that are iu now, it will be impossible to hold this t initiation. Try to bring in at least one application for the next meeting, Tuesday evening. The Grand Knight will have some interesting things to tell you about when he returns from Jonesboro, on the reasons why every Catholic should be a member of the Knights of Columbus and why every member should have insurance in the Knights of Columbus. A Thought for the Week The recipe for perpetual ignorance is: Be satisfied with your opinions and try, regardless of creed or color. From the beginning of the reconstruction period the Knights of Columbus have attempted to render the same aid, in proportion, o the, colored veterans ..t to other veterans. Hundreds of coh)r- ed men have received free tuition a!. special K. of C. schools in the South, some of hich, are now operating, an't just as the colored soldiers were serv- ed at the front by the Knights and in the hospital now, so they have. throughout, benefited by K. of C. wel- l fare work. "Only the narrowest vision can ob ject to this course. %'he probably very few Ku Klux Klansmen anti members of racially and religiously bigoted or- ganizations who may have served their country under arms in the war, have the same rights as all other vet- erans to share the benefits of K. of C. educational work, in the operation of which no question of a man's race or religion has ever entered or eve will." KNIGHTS TO DEDICATE HOME EASTER SUNDAY San Diego, March 12.Easter Sun- day has been chosen as the dale of the official dedication of the new $85,- 000 home of the Knights of Columbus at San Diego. A large delegation of California Knights, headed by Joseph Scott,'K. S. G., of Los Angeles, will attend the ceremonies. HOT SPRINGS NATIONAL PARK content with your knowl'edge.

The entertainments include moving pic- tures, vaudeville and boxing and wrestling exhibitions. A special feature of the Knight' hospital work now is the provision of home-town newspapers to the hun- dreds of veterans in tubercular camps in the Southwestern states. The K. of C. supreme board of directors will meet in Washington in April to com- plete the Knights' program of hospi- tal work for the summer months. EXTREMISTS DECREASING Extreme radicalism in the United States is waning, although there are still enough apostles of it to make it a dangerous social factor, Peter W. Collins, Knights of Columbus lecturer on economic and social questionq, which is just completing his twelftn annual lecture tour under K. of C. auspices, reports. "While evidences of dissatisfaction exfst in many places," he states, "es- pecially in certain Western and Northwestern states, the extermists do not appear as numerous. Organi- zations such as the I. W. W. are not gaining noticeable ground; the idea seems to be generally advancing that better wage and living conditions are obtainable without the spread of vio- lent doctrines, although there are plenty of old-guard socialist agitators writing and speaking revolutionary stuff." Mr. Collins, since the beginning of ,his work for the K. of C., has acquir- ed the reputation of being the most questioned man in America, as many as 2,000 questions being asked him by members of audiences in a single sea- son. This year he states that Ameri- can curiosity has diminished in quan- tity but improved in quality, some 400 persons out of the thousands he has addressed in many different cities and towns asking him questions, prirJci- polly regarding capital and labor in- ter-relations. KNIGHTS TO MAKE TRIP FROM COAST TO COAST Brooklyn, March 10.--Arrange mer.ts arc nearly completed for the proposed coast to oast..tip larmt good rest and to have a full appre- ciation of the efficacious water and weather Arkansas presented in mid- winter to northern travellers. Looking for Priests Bishop McGrath made the long trip from the far northwest for the pur- pose of securing his quota of young men from the student body of St. John's Seminary, Little Rock, now af- filiated with the Catholic Church Ex- tension Society in its supply of priests for needed mission work in the South and West. While at St. John's, Bishop Mc- Grath addressed the students and in- itiated the "Mission Course of Lec- tures," which will be a feature of the eminary curriculum every year, when Bishops and Missionary experts will be invited to address the students along lines of this special vocation. While at the Spa, Bishop McGrath expressed himself as quite astounded at the progressive work of the Dio- cease of Little Rock manifested on all sides, with its fine seminary and col- lege, its academies and schools and the excellent hospital equipment as he found tt at St. Vincent's, Little Rock, and at St. Joseph's, in this city. He said he (was told to stay longer and go farther over Arkansas, that he only had seen half of it," but he would have to leave the rest for a future visitation. Appreciates Springs He had heard all his life of Hot Springs, Arkansas, but even with Bishop Morris' additional description and commendations, the Spa was a great surprise to him, with its delight- ful location on mountain-side and val- ley, its abundant and gushing springs of healing waters, its metropolitan touch and cosmopolitan people, its many and magnificent hotels and bathing places, but above all, Hot Springs, Arkansas, with its stamp of Catholicity in its parish churches, its St. Joseph's Infirmary, St. John's Place and the parochial schools.
