Real Catholic Action An interesting bit of Ctholic Action is displayed in the 'North West Arkansas Times, Fayette- ville. St. Joseph's High School Sodality, Fayetteville, sponsors the Catholic article in this Fayette- ville daily newspaper in connec- tion with the Narberth Movement. The copy noticed by The Guard- ion staff member was headed, 'There Is Something Wrong With Catholics." These articles are the same as those which have appear- ed in The Guardian off and on for years under the name of 'Catholic nd sell two others, or buy two such bonds and sell one, and the goal set would be reached. If you are now buying bonds ona pay-roll deduction plan, the amount you buy after our drive starts, entitles you to credit for just so much. If your council de- cides to put on a drive, no matter to whom or where they sell the bonds, they get credit for all the bonds so sold. You might raffle them, buy them, give them for prizes in Bingo, but get the bonds in circulation and the money in !the U. S. Treasury, and the credi| goes to the individual or council that does the work. We feel that some councils have wealthy members, or members whose income have been greatly increased because of the war, who will gladly invest more than their personal quota to put their council out in front. Get your committees busy interviewing such persons. Sometimes just a suggestion will arouse their latent patriotism, and 0uncil pride and prompt them to action. In most cases it isn't be- cause they lack either, it,s" just bcause they haven't given the idea sufficient thought, or it tmsn't !been suggested to them in the proper light. Man by nature is free, but such freedom carries with it a person- al responsibility and a duty. The four freedoms expressed by out" President have become the objec- tive to which victory must lead us. It is not enough to want free- dom however. We must be ready and willing to pay for it either on the battle fronts, or through sacri- fices at home. We Catholics have never been found wanting in any emergency, or when danger threatens our Country, we must not fail in this. Evidence.' They were originally started by the late Karl Rodgers. The movement has gained mom- entum in various sections of the country, and to know that mem- bers of St. Joseph's Sodality, Fay- etteville have solicited the good will of their daily to publish these articles is a forward step in the real kind of Catholic action tO make the church better known in the non-Catholic world. The Guardian invites a more comprehensive story from the So- dality on this work.

Nazi Claims Of Anti-Communist Crusade Assailed Ottawa. ()Speaking over the French network of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, the Very Rev. Arthur Caron, (9.M.I., Vice-Rector of the University of Ottawa, said there was no reason for Catholics to be troubled about the fact that they are fighting as allies of Soviet Russia and warn- ed against the Nazi propaganda which sought to make believe that the Axis is engaged in an anti- Communist crusade. "The war which Hitler's Ger- many is waging against Russia is NOT a crusade," he said. "It is a non-disguised aggression against a country rich in its soil and its resources, which the pow- ers of prey couvet as a prize of great value. "For us Catholics... we have an obligation to pray for our broth- ers in arms, whq over there under the northern skies or on the snowy steppes of the Ukraine are fighting and dying for a just cause which is common to us. We must ask God that this great religious ,and mystic people, with a millenium of Christian ties, at last purified in their sorrow, made wise through the lessons of experience and his- tory, may find again he principles of human social equilibrium and the paths of Catholic unity for their salvation, for the peace of. th)e world and the triumph of Christ the King." C0mmunists Spread Propaganda In Eastern Poland London. (El--Parachutists drop- ped in Eastern Poland are spread- ing Communist propaganda in that area, according to informa- tion received here by the Polish Catholic Press Agency, KAP. The propaganda charges the Polish Government with imperial- istJc aims and seeks to foment subversive action among the Po- lish people. The parachutists are assigned to establish Communistic centers and set up printing presses. Officials of the Polish Govern- ment-in-Exile, meeting here, is- sued "the following statement con- cerning these propaganda activi- ties: ' "So far as the question of frontiers between Poland and Russia is concerned the status quo previous to September 1, 1939, is in force and the Government of Poland considers the under- mining of this.attitude, which isin conformity with the Atlantic Charter, to be detrimental to the unity of the Allied nations." Mission Fathers Continue Work Despite Bombs "They bombed us yesterday for a few hours but they were small bombs so I didn't bother going to the dugout." Thus Father Patrick Maguire of St. Columban's Mis- sions in Hanyang, China, explain- ed his attitude when a colleague found him calmly reading a news- paper in his kitchen during an air- s'aid alarm. "They ring the same bell for the warning as they do for the all- clear," said Father Maguire, "so you never know which is which." He went on reading the paper. This is one of the incidents re- lated by Father Timothy Leahy of Saint Columban's Society in de- scribing how the Catholic mis- sionaries have stayed with their people during the war in China. He reports that the priests act- ed in the delicate and dangerous role of intermediary between the invaders and the Chinese people, thus avoiding many ugly situa- tions and preventing possible bloodshed. Father Leahy, who is pastor of China's largest parish, in Bishop Galvin's Vicariate of Hanyang, was impressed by the missionary coverage of the country. "I have read," he writes, "a few descriptions by newspaper men who were sent to cover the war in central China. One or two of them state that they were the only white men who had penetrated to this particular war zone. "The fact is that there is scarce- ly a county from Shanghai to Chungking or from Peiping to Canton where the local Catholic missionary was not all the time at work. He was there not as a mere spectator, but as a priest, sharing the lot of his people and doing his utmost to allevigte their suffering. Today he is still at his post." Founder of Boys Town Recovers From Illness Los Angeles. (E}Completely re- covered from the effects of a spinal operation performed at the Mayo clinic in Rochester two months ago, the Rt, Rev. Msgr. Edward J. Flanagan, founder of Boys Town, has left Los Angeles[ for his famous institution. Mon- signor Flanagan  had been con- valescing here since the new year. Accompanying him was his broth- er, the Rev. P. A, Flanagan, of Omaha, Herefordshire. Present only were two nursing sisters. It is almost as if Cardinal Hin- sley had lived two lives. The first can be remembered for the quiet and scholarly attainment of solid objectives as Rector of an English College, and as Apostolic Visitor to the African Missions in British territory. The second flashes across the pages of history, because los a venerable and sickly man he !stood as a flaming and energizing i beacon in England's darkest hours :and captured the imagination and admiration of the world. When he was named Archbishop of Westminster in 1935, it was thought in England that he had al- ready finished his career, but in spite of his poor health, he opposed Communism and Fascism unflag- gingly in all their forms. He ever insisted on the preservation of spiritual values, and vigoroqsly brought out his points in pastoral letters and radio broadcasts. It is no wonder that Protestant churches and' Jewish synagogues in England prayed for his recovery as he law seriously ill. He had been everywhere, exhorting and encouraging, where inspiriting was needed. Perhaps most remarkable of the experiences of Cardinal Hinsley's life were those connected with Africa. When he was sent there in 1930, at the age of 65, he was the only Englishman in the dip- lomatic service of the Church. In his territory there were 60 ec- clesiastical divisions with a pop- ulation of 80,000,000, in an area four-fifths of the Continent of i Africa. He was required to make jour- neys. In one period of 20 months he covered 50,04)0 miles. Stricken with typhus he was compelled to give up his work, and return to Rome. : , , sored by the Catholic Daughters of Little Rock will have it's opening night, rather appropriately, next Thursday, March 25th, the feast of the Annunciation of the Bless- ed Mother.

(RD Dignitaries of the Oriental and Roman rites of the Church will attend the con- celebration of Divine Liturgy ac- cording to the Melkite Rite in St. Patrick's Cathedral here April 3. The ceremony will conclude the fifth annual Conference of Orien- tal Rites and Liturgies sponsored by tordham University. Among those who will attend are the Very Rev. Msgr. Pascal Majian, Am,erican represertative of the Armenian Rite Patriarch; :he Rt. Rev. Chor-bishop Stephen el-Douaihy, pastor of Our Lady of the Cedars of Lebanon Church, Boston, and American representa- tive of the Maronite Rite Pat- riarch, and the Rev. Frederick H. Chase, lecturer on the Eastern Rites at .the Brighton Seminary, Boston. The Rt. Rev. Msgr. Bryan J. McEntegart, national secretary of the Catholic Near East Welfare Association, who last week was named Executive Director of War Relief Services of the National Ca- tholic Welfare Conference, will preach the sermon. The Rev. An- drew I{ogosh, of St. Michael's Russian Church, will assist in the sanctuary. Three priests will concelebrate the Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom--all three will say the Mass together and logether will consecrate the same Species--ac- cording to the Byzantine-Melkite Rite. The concelebrants will be the Rt. Rev. Archimandrite Ber- nard Ghos'n, of St. George's Church; the Rev. Nicholas Arak- tingi, of the Church of the Vir- gin Mary, Brooklyn, and the Rev. Cyril Anid, of St. Ann's Church, Paterson, NJ. Only vnce before in the history of St. Patrick's Cathedral has a concelebratibn of Divine Liturgy according to an Eastern rite taken place there and that was last year when the Byzantine-Slavonic Lit- urgy was celebrated. The Mel- kite Liturgy is native to Syria, Palestine, and North Africa. Mel- kite music is of great antiquity :and characteristic of the Near East. Originally the Melkite Liturgy was Greek, but as they spread into Palestine, Egypt and North Africa from Syria and subsequently suf- fered violent persecutions and op- pressions by the Mohammedans, the Arabic language was forced i upon them and was introduced into i their liturgy.

(E)--A Requiem Mass was celebrated for the repose of the Soul of Alice Nielsen, former light opera singer, by the Rev. Jo- seph I. Malloy in theChurch of St. Paul the Apostle. Miss Niel- sen, who was a favorite of opera audiences 20 years ago, died af- ter an illness of several years in a nursing home. She was 67. At the close of a Missa Cantata in the church, an undentified man, unknown to relatives and close friends of the singer, left a pew, walked to the middle aisle, genu- flected and placed a single red car- nation on the coffin, then left the church. The flower was the coffin's only adornment. Miss Nielsen was a friend of the late Victor Herbert, who wrote "The Singing Girl" and "The For- tune Teller" for her. Her friends also included such past theatrical notables as Eleonora Duse, Maxine Elliott and Lillian Russell. Miss Eielsen made her debut with the Metropolitan Opera Company in 1909. Eng.
