Fletcher, Auxiliary Bishop of Little Rock, spoke in terms of commendation of the work of the National Council of Catholic Women of the Little Rock District. His Excellency impress- ed upon his listeners the import- ance of the work of the National Council of Catholic Women, parti- cularly in these troubled times, emphasizing the fact that success- ful functioning of the NCCW in the Diocese had been desired for some time. His Excellency asked lhat the parish groups continue their cooperation by planning strong monthly meetings, in which to include their members in this important work of Catholic Ac- tion. The very fine work of the NCCW in assisting in the war ef- i fort, by the cooperation with NCCS-USO, Red Cross, and' Civil- i, f mn De ense was prmsed by His i Exeellency, who expressed the de- sire that the Catholic women con- tinue to do all possible in their work toward a victorious peace for God and Country. Very Reverend Monsignor James E. O'Connell, Diocesan Director of the National Council of Catholic Women, in his address, expressed clearly his desire that the work of the NCCW, as outlined in the national set-up, be actively car- ried on in each parish unit. Us- mg as an example of the necessity for NCCW to sound the voice of Catholic womanhood, Msgr. O'Con- nell cited the opposition being registered through NCCW against the "Equal Rights Bill" in Wash- ington. Tentative plans for the annual Diocesan Convention were briefly discussed by Msgr. O'Connell. Mrs. John Pruniski, Diocesan President of NCCW brought a very timely message in "Block Wardens on the Alert", in which she peti- tioned every woman to do all pos- sible to cooperate with the Civil- mn Defense Council m their very necessary work. Mrs. Pruniski very forcefully brought out the duty of Catholic women to do their part in rendering all possible service to their country during this emergency. At the business meeting, with Mrs. Granville Sutton presiding, reports of work accomplished in the parishes were made by Miss Mary Pierce Keith for St. Andrew's Parish, Mrs. R. C. Harville for Good Counsel Parish, Mrs. John Kierre for St. Anne's Parish and Mrs. R. C. Clark for St. Pat- rick's Parish. Reports of Com- mittees were made by Miss Anne Margrave for Extension of Re- ligious Education, Mrs. T. W. Chiehester for Organization and Development, Miss Louise Mal- archer for National Defense, Miss Nell Eagan for Welfare and Mrs. Paul Bujarski for Shrines• Two new chairmen were introduced,- Mrs. Carson Bray for PTA and Miss Genevieve Sluyter for Youth.

An interesting feature of the meeting was a "demonstration meeting" presented by the Good Counsel parish unit, with Mrs. H. C. Harville, presiding. In'this' "demonstration meeting", the reg - ular routine as suggested for parish meetings was followed. Reports of parish work were read by Mrs. Chas. Hooker, Mrs. F. Sarlo, Mrs. i H. E. Reiman, hrs. Frank De- Clerk, Mrs. A. Brugnone and Miss Genevieve Sluyter. Rev. Edward Maloy in a brief talk, outlined reasons why everyone should use the Missal and "pray the Mass". Rt. Rev. Msgr. H. H. Wernke and Rt. Rev. Msgr. F. A. Allen spoke o£ the work of NCCW in their respective parishes, and en- couraged the members to con- tinue their work towards the glorious goal of the spread of the Ctholie Faith. T. J.
