PAGE EIGHT THE GUARDIAN, MARCH 19, 1943 "QUI VIVE?" (Continued from rage I) ride with any chance driver. The motorist may be honest enough, but there axe many reckless driv- ers on tile road. The automobilist has no way of judging the person who solicits a ride. Many trag- edies have alreay occurred due to misplaced confidence in this mat- ter. The uniform, sal to say, is not a guarantee of the integrity of the wearer. The O. P. A., has been very injudicious, in its ad- vice to car drivers to pick up peo- ple indiscriminately, Young girls, following this advice, have come to grief in many parts of the nation. Sharing a ride is all right when people know each other. In all other eAes picking up hitch-hik- ers is more dangerous now than it was, in peace time., Service men should be lntelllg.t enough to know that when a t/totorist passes them up on the highway, it is not because he is stingy or unlm" triotic, but because he has sense enough to use good judgment. The fact of the matter is that it reqnires considerable courage in a motorist to pass a hitch-hiker. The urge of human kindness dic- tates a stop and a lift, but dis- eretion directs one to keep going. Spring is here and the lure of the outdoors and the threat of a food shortage are inspiring the amateur farmers of the nation. As might be expected these tyronic agrlchlturalists are going to re- ceive plenty of advice from gov- ernmental bureaus. Already the Civilian Defense Volunteer Office has issued a booklet for the use of home gardeners. The instruc- tions are rather complete. The prospective planters are advised that the first utensils to be pur- chased are a shovel, rake, and hoe. Then they are told not to plaat on land that is filled with tin cans, stones, bricks, or mortar. They are also told thwt when the plants wilt, it is a sign tlutt they need water. Evidently the bureau takes nothing for granted. One wonders where .the goverumen picks up all these experts that give such erudite advice to aJl sorts of people. Evidently the Victory gardeners are looked upon as rank amateurs, not to be classed with the butchers and horseshoers, who received instructions in very tceh- nicl language. It may be that the amateur planters will not be able to add much to the general 5up- ply of vegetobles this year, but at least they have the right spirit. Perhaps their battle with the bugs and the elements will give them a keener appreciation of what the real dirt farmer is up against every year. Whether these enthusiasts rlse any crops or not, . the attempt to do so will bring them out in the open and, no doubt, will improve their health. The thoughts that are produced by assoeiatio with the soil are clean and whole- some, much more eievting than those that are suggested at the movies. Nature is a great teacher. "A grain thrown into good ground brings forth fruit: a principle thrown into a good mind, brings forth fruit. Everything is created and conducted by the same Mas- teruthe roots, the branch, the fruits,uthe principles, the eonse-i quetces." Pascal. CPL. ROSS (Continued from page 1) of services has increased notice- ably, Corporal Ross said and at one Sund&y Mass more than 500 were present. At Christmas Mtd- night Mass a lone Japanese plane flew over and f]ropped bombs, but not a man left the service, the former champion boxer said and also told how he played the or- gan at the Mass. J. P. MORGAN (Continued from page 1) of the Old Testament, virtually allj of the Gospels and ninteen Epistles, as well as liturgical works, lives of the Saints and homilies. Besides the first volume of the restored work presented to Pope Pius XI, Mr. Morgan made pre- sentations of subsequent first vol- umes to the British Museum Li- brary, the Bibliotheque Nationale of Paris, the Library of the Ca- tholic University at Louvain, the Library of the University of Cam- bridge and the Library of the Egyptian Museum of Cairo. The wok of restoration, trans- lation and photographing was in- terrupted in 1914, when World War I broke out and Monsignor Hyvernat returned to the United states. He was unable to resume the work at the Vat/can until 1919. : VOWS (Continued from page 1) and Master of Ceremonies, the Rev. Thomas R. Woods. The sermon was delivered by the Rev. Peter F.

Father Quinn also congratulated the parents of the newly-received, and called attention to the spirit of faith that enabled them to give their children to God. ' During the afternoon, the Sisters had the pleasure and privilege of a visit from His Excellency, the Most Rev. John J. Glennon, S.T.D., Archbishop of St. Louis, whom other engagements had prevented from attending the" ceremony. HiS Excellency addressed the Sisters, calling to mind the peace and hap- piness that is theirs notwithstand- ing the turmoil of the world.

Quebec. ()-- Taking the lead among educational organizations, the Catholic Committee of the Council of Public Instruction of Quebec has urged compulsory edu- cation in the Province and Prime Minister Adelard Godbout has an- nounced plans for the necessary legislation call for its introduction at the present legislative session. The Committee, which is com- posed of the ]ishops of the Pro- vince and a number of laymen, stated that schools in the Province, despite the lack of compulsory edu- cation legislation, are on a plane which compares favorably with any school system in Canada or in the neighboring sections of the United States. Methods of im- proving the educational program are constantly being studied, mem- bers of the committee stated. RUSSIA (Continued from page 1) the extent of the aid it is receiving from the United States and Great Britain, is, of course, a matter of conjecture at the moment. There is ample reason, too, for assuming that Vice-President Wal- laCe had in mind' a definite purpose in making his speech on democracy and Marxism. Just what it was may not appear on the surface, but it has become a practice of "psy- chological warfare" as it is con- ducted in Washington to unlim- ber its heaviest oratorical guns when a particular situation de- mands attention. It is true that Mr. Wallace plead- ed for a Christian approach to the problems that will be encount- ered in the wake of the war. "By tradition and by structure," he said, "we believe that it is pos- sible to reconcile the freedom and rights of the individual with the duties required of us by the gen- eral welfare. We believe in re- ligious tolerance and the separa- tion of Church and State, but we :need to light again the old spirit to meet the challenge of new facts." He sounded the warning that" either Prussianismpolitical ab- solutismor Marxism will engulf the world if democracy  fails, and intimated that the Soviet Govern- ment is changing somewhat its attitude toward religion. He also implied that democracy and Holy Communions Number 695,288 For Army In Dec. New York.--Reports from 1,126 commissioned and 158 auxiliary chaplains on duty with the armed forces reveal that a total of 695,- 286 Holy .Communions were re- ceived by American fighting men all over the world during Decem- ber, it was announced at the Mili- tary Ordinariate. The figure rep- resents a new monthly high, of- ficials stated. It does not include Holy Communions received by Ca- tholic military personnel at civilian churches. In disclosing the figures, the Most Rev. John F. O'Hara, C.S.C., Military Delegate, said' that the highest previous number of Holy Communions reported was for the month of November, 1942, when reports from 1,085 commissioned and 127 auxiliary chaplains show- ed a total of 388,019 Sacred Hosts distributed-to military personnel. The figures for Holy Communions received on Christmas and. the Feast of the Immaculate Concep- tion totaled 262,495. The Decem- ber First Friday total was 14,604. The Sunday total was 284,103 and the week-day total 135,023. Com- munions distributed to military and naval hospital patients totaled 9,163 during the month. F/al K. Of C. Hostel Fire Believed Incendiary St. John's, Nfld. ()--Belief that the fire which 'destroyed the Knights of Columbus army hostel here on December 12, with loss of 99 lives, was of incendiary origin, was expressed in the report of Justice Dunfield, special commis- sioner named, to investigate the fire. Justice Dunfield said he believed the fire had' been set in an up- stairs cupboard and had smoldered there for some time. When the door had been opened accumulated gases caused an explosion and the fire spread rapidly. Justice Dun- field believed the fire was the work of a pyromaniac. He found that some doors hacl' opened inward, which was a breach of a Newfoundland law. Ottawa.

"Without a close and trusting understanding between Russia and the United States," he said, "I very much fear that World War No. 3 will be .inevitable." From all of this, it would appear that Stalin has become in more way# than one the question mark which is disturbing Washing-, ton. What policies he may follow when peace is restored, what soc- ial order he will attempt to set up, what measures he may take to maintain the territorial security by dominating or taking over buffer states are some of the things the United Nations would like to know. The course that will be taken by the United States as long as the war lasts is definitely clear. It will cooperate fully with the Sov- iet Government and render all possible aid in destroying Nazi militarism. But it appears that some leaders in Washington would also like to have some idea of what Stalin intends to do when the task of rebuilding the shattered world begins, and the prospect is not altogether reassuring.

Y. Police Honored by Pope I Canada College Establishes New York. ()--Catholic chap- lains with the armed forces of the United States are "the cream of the earth," the Most Rev. William T. MeCarty, C. SS. R., recently appointed Military Delegate told 150 members of the First Friday group of the Anchor Club of the York City police Department at a Communion breakfast at the Hotel Governor Clinton. Before the lreakfast, the police- men made a corporate Communion at the Church of St. Francis in memory of the dead of Pearl Har- bor. Bishop McCarty celebrated the Mass and distributed Holy Communion. "I am glad to be working for the chaplains and the soldiers, sailors and marines of our armed forces," the Bishop said. "I have come into contact with many of :the chaplains. All are imbued with !zeal to help their men in time of !danger. They are hearing Con- :fessions and saying Mass all over the world." Thspirit of the typical chaplain was shown in a question put by a priest in the Chaplain School at Harvard to the Most Rev. Francis J. Spellman during a quizz hour conducted by the Military Vicar shortly before he went abroad, Bishop McCarty said'. "The priest asked Archbishop Spellman whether he might carry the Blessed Sacrament into battle to minister to the dying," said Bishop McCarty/ "When Arch- bishop Spellman answered that this should be done, the priest said, 'but if I am killed what will be- come of the Sacrel Host?' This spirit of courage ald self-forget, fulness is typical of our chaplains." Bishop McCarty said the Arch- bishop's reply to the priest's ques- tion about the Host was "God will take care of that." A "Catholic view of life" is most important in these days, Rt. Rev. Msgr. Arthur J. Scanlan, rector f St. Helena's Church and former President of St. Joseph's Seminary, told the group. "To olace religion as a non- essential in winning te war is the greatest tragedy that could happen," said Msgr. Scanlan. "Place your church and your per- sonal sanctification first. Above all keep alive the fine Catholic traditions of the home." Police Sergeant John Boyle, president of the group, presented a pocket fountain pen and pencil set to Bishop McCarty on behalf of the members. Finland's Fight Against Russia Discussed Vatican City. (E)--Finland in her recent and presentwars has al- ways 'declared herself fighting solely for the attainment and con- solation of her frontiers of 1939, without any territorial ambitions, and this contention is supported by the fact that she has not permanently absorbed territory occupied beyond her frontiers for 1939, it is asserted in an article that has appeared in Osservatore Romano, the Vatican City daily. The article is signed with the initials "F.C." It is noted in the article that Finland has always abstained from adherence to pacts with groups of natiors, this fact allowing her greater freedom in her political activities. As a result of this situation, the writer continues, this country now finds itself in a position that does not alienate the sympathy of the Anglo-Saxon powers, and espec- ially of the United States. The article then refers to "consider- able talk" in the newspapers of the possibility of improvement in the diplomatic relations between the governments of the United States and Finland, which have never been severed despite the strain of the war. Finland's attitude is a continua- tion, says the writer, of its poli- tical line followed perseveringly, which is the maintenance of friendly relations with all nations, with the hope of guarding' and sustaining peace in justice. Au- thoritative observers believe any change of policy on the part of Finland would be particularly dif- ficult under the present excep- Rev. Dr. Walter S.

Serafini reviewing the religious history of Finland, where Catholic life flourished in the Middle Ages and where/thanks to the sympathetic attitude of both authorities and people, a new future for the Church was envisioned with the establishment of a Vicariate Apos- toiic at Helsinki in 1920. Discus- sing the cultural and economic life of Finland, the Vatican City daily writer said: "Thus Finland has become one of the most prosperous and civil- ized nations of Europe.
