Instructors on I R,llo s Detroit, Mich., March 11. (E}.

MANY ARE COLLISIONS More than one-third of all motor car fatalities result from collisions. About 12 per cent of the deaths are rom collisions between two cars; 20 per cent are collisions between a motor vehicle and some fixed object. When one automobile meets an- other head-on, or when an auto- mobile crashes into a tree or a concrete under-pass, the cars do i not disintegrate and disappear as gas. There is a wreckage left. But often this wreckage is of very little mechanical value. And as for the people who ride in the cars, the law of physics tells us the probability of death in- creases in proportion to the im- pact. Too often there is nobody left alive to tell how it happened. Why it happened is of value only as a record. Unfortunately, com- paratively few people are shock- ed by the wreckage. The trouble is that the kind of driver who ought to be influenced by such an object lesson seldom sees it. Some traffic judges are sending reck- less drivers to visit the morgue. It is a suitable place to ponder om the consequences of accidents. Cat0001it 00nig00ta of 00hntrita Q g ACTIVITIES OF BRANCHES AND MEMBERS IN ARKANSAS Branch No. 79.

Why are Catholics so opposed to birth control? The Catholic Church condemns birth control as generally prac- ticed today because it is a crime against nature and against the GOd of nature. , Birth control per.. verts a human faculty; it delib- erately frustrates the laws f na- ture, and defiantly scoffs at the command of God to increase and multiply. Name the three creeds used in the Church at the present time. Athanasian creed, Apostles' creed, Nicene creed. If a Catholic does not receive Holy Communion at least once a year, at Easter, is he or she ex- communicated? No. But they are liable to a sentence of excom- munication.
