The Communicants were led by four tiny angels to the sanctuary where they renewed their Bap- tismal vows. The angels again ushered the children to their places where they awaited the happy moment.

Human Wisdom Cannot Solve Peace Problems Says Msgr. ISheen; Depends On God New York. (E)The problems ested in the preserving of peoples the world will face in shaping the peace that is to follow the war are difficult and thorny and "human wisdom and strength will not be enough to solve them bravely and i justly," the Rt. Rev. Msgr. Ful- ton J. Sheen, of the Catholic Uni- versity of America, declared in a radio address on the "Catholic Hour" here Sunday night. He added: "Only God can help us!" Msgr. Sheen's subject was "Judgment of Nations', and the address was the thirteenth in a series of seventeen which he is deliverying on the "Catholic Hour" :on the general theme "The Crisis in Christendom." Declaration of Dependence "To Jefferson," the speaker said, "goth the credit of writing our Declaration of Independence. To Lincoln goes the credit of wriUng our Declaration of Dependence. Jefferson declared we were inde- pendent from tyrants; Lincoln added, we are dependents on God. The ethical complement to our Bill of Rights, he told us, is our Bill of Duties." Asserting that we will have greater burdens in peace than we will have in war, Msgr. Sheen con- tinued: "Oh! how we will need God's assistance to make effective in deed, the words of our Atlanti Charter! "Take, for example, the problem of Poland and' Lithuania. These are not mere aspects of the prob- lem of peace; they are the problem of world peace in miniature. On what we do to them will depend the peace of the world for the next century. "First, they are small and weak nations from a political and a mili- tary point of view. "Second, both have been violated by both sides in this war: Gen'many and by Russia. "Third, both have preserved the Christian culture upon which the democracy and the freedom of the world is grounded. Provide Acid Test "For these reasons, they are the acid test of the ideals for which we are striving. What we do with them at the close of this war will prove: "First, whether we are inter- ested in preserving the right of small and weak nations when a strong and powerful nation wishes to devour them or refuses to con- sider either their rights or even the arbitration of those rights. "Second, whether we are inter- from a wiced philosophy of life which subjects free persons either to the Moloch of a race, or the Tyranny of a Class? "Third', whether we are inter- rated in preserving the Christian tradition in Europe and therefore the spiritual and moral grounds of democracy and freedom?" NCCS Club Game Room Becomes Monthly Clinic Delaware City, Del. (E)Once a month the use game room, par- titioned off with clean white sheets, plays host to a battalion of babies and blue-uniformed nurses instead of khaki-clad soldiers. The first use-housed Well Baby Clinic came about last winter when, due to heat rationing, the quarters generally occupied by the State Board of Health for its Well Child Conference became too chilly for the comfort and safety ,f the small patients. I Fifty per eent:ofthe youngsters examined, it was found, were children of Fort DuPont soldiers. Another ten per cent were those of war workers in this area. So Arthur Malloy, director of the NCCS-operated USO unit, offered the facilities of his organization for the monthly clinic. Dr. Marion Hotopp, acting director of the Di- vision of Maternal and Child Health for the State Board of Health, examines the children. Uniform Clothing For Communion Classes Foregone Baltimore. ()  A communica- lion from the Most Rev. Michael J. Curley, Acchbishop of Balti- more and of Washington, requests all pastors and teaching Sisters to forego uniformity in dress in Con- firmation and First Communion classes. Pastors and teaching Sisters were asked to have regard for the difficulties to be experienced by parents in providing clothing. An official notice in the Catholic Re- view stated: "The desire for uni- formity in dress will have to be foregone in view of presen con- I Counoi! ] ? T. J.

Morrllton Louis Kiehl, the gnial and well known groceryman of North Lit- tle Rock and member of North Little Rock Branch No. 1133, has just heard from Saint Louis Head- quarters that his policies have all t been paid up in full and he can now follow his favorite pastime, land bring home those large fish he has been telling his friends about. Mr. Kiehl also reports that the Dolphus Thomey family are leaving North Little Rock for their plantation near Conway. Mr. Thomey has been the faithful Secretary of North Little Rock Branch for these many years. Point No. 10 of the 11 points given the Catholic Union of Ark- ansas by His Excellency the Bish- op is "Lay Retreats". The Branch officers are urged to encourage their members to attend the Lay Retreats given at Saint John's Seminary. They are a treat for Body and Soul. The time of these Lay Retreats will be announced in The Guardian and also by Pastors in your church vestibule, and every Catholic should attend at least one of these every year. Takh advantage of this God given op- portunity to commune with your- self in your private room at the Seminary, away from the world for two days, and reflect upon your past and future life and whither you are going when you leave this earthly life. The lec- tures and instructions you will re- ceive at a retreat will be remem- bered as long as you live. Make a resolution now, that you will attend a Retreat this year, remem- ber that it might be the last chance given you, Roy. Lawrence Hoyt, O.S.B., Pastor of Saint Edwards Church and spiritual Director of Branch No. 79 celebrated his 66th birth- day last Sunday, surrounded by his congregatioh at a baked ham dinner in the basement of the church. The Rt. Rev. Abbott Paul M. Nahlen, O.S.B., and the Rev. Justin Wewer, O.S.B.. of Subiaco, and the Rev. B. F. McDevitt of Saint Andrew's Cathedral, were seated with the Jubilarian at the head table. The celebration was in charge of the Rev. Cyril Lange, O.S.B., Assistant to Father Law- rence. Mr. Leo J. Byrne was Toastmaster and made the wel- coming speech for the Congrega- tion. Father Lawrence is to be congratulated for the great work he has done for the Congregation, not only in a financial way but also in a spiritual upbuilding of lle Congregation.
