PAGE EIGHT New U. S. Ambassador To Spain Noted Catholic Scholar (By N. C. W. C. News Service) Washington.Dr. Carlton J. H. Hayes, Catholic educator and historian, was nominated on April 3 by President Roose- velt to be Ambassador to Spain, succeeding Alexander W. Weddell, who recently returned to confer with the President and whose retirement for reasons of ill health was announced. Dr. Hayes 'has been Seth Low Professor of History at Columbia University since 1936, and has long been recognized as one of the nation's leading historians. He is the author of . numerous works tracing the origin of modern nationalism. Dr. "QUI VIVE?" (Continued from Page 1) league. The next year':he led the league again with .410. Later in 1899 he hit .402 but was beaten out of the lead by Ed Delehanty, who hit a mere .407. Modern ball players have broken many records, but no one has ever broken Jesse's record made in 1901. He beat out four consecutive bunts for hits. Babe Ruth won fame because in a World Series he called his shot but few fans remember that Bur- kett did that years before. He was coaching at third, when one of his team mates got on second. Jesse shouted, "There goes the ball game." Bill Bailey, the opposing pitcher retorted, "If you're so hot, why don't you go up and hit. Jesse called time, went to the bat for the hum about to hit, pointed to the left field fence and hit it over. It is still the same old game and war or n0 war they'll all go out to the ball park. That is where democracy reigns supreme. You can bve your own opinion, call any one the name you fancy and still get home alive. Many amusing stories are told by those who have charge of blackouts. Recently in one of our  large cities, while all around was in complete darkness, a man Ht a match. When he was question- ed, concerning his actlem, by a policemn, he answered, "I just lit the match to see the black- out." Most people are amazed when they read about persons who fall to turn out their lights or draw their black shales. Usually they have no reason for their dis- obedience. It is just that they have the usual American custom of dis- regrdlng commands. This attitude has become a habit. In many build- ings signs have been placed, which read, "No Smoking." Very few pay any attention to such an order un- less there Is some one around to see that it is observed. It would be difficult to count the nmnber of automobilists who disregard 'slow' and 'stop' buttons unless they see a policeman in the neighborhood. Few seem to rellze that the pub- lic safety depends upon the ob- servance of regulations which re- strain, but at the same time help every one. Of course, the real cul- pr/ts are the public officials who do not insist that all laws be en- forced as 10ng as they remain on the books. Any law that is no longer useful should be repealed. There ha been too much favorit- ism in this country in the appli- cation of laws. In most sections of the country an observer might very well believe that the only persons subject to laws were those who had no friends at court. In a great many cities, the "fixing abuse" reached such proportions that arrests for traffic violations were a Joke. On the face of all this, the officials, wh9 have charge of blackouts, are asked to see that this law is strictly observed. In many cases severe fines have al- ready been Imposed and even prison sentences have been meted out. This is as it should be, be- cause disregtrd of blackout regu- lations may mesm the loss of life and property. Furthermore, it will be a good training in law observ- ance for many citizens who have needed it for $ long time. "Without Me," says Christ, "you can do nothing." That is, without Grace we can do nothing that will lead us to the Beatific Vision, the greal ideal, the great destiny, for which we are made, and for which all self-improvement, all perfection must prepare us. Hayes has frequently denounc- ed totalitarianism as alien to the "whole historical civiliza- tion of the West," and he has likewise condemned theories of racial superiority as basically con- tradictory to Catholic Faith. Speaking last year at the meet- ing of the Institute of Human Re- lations at Williams College he urged a rebuilding of the League of Nations. "The league must be something more than a debating society or an occasional conference of dip- lomats," he said'. "It must be equipped with an international army or police force empowered 'to prevent aggression and capable of doing it successfully." Sought Racial Understanding As Catholic Co-Chairman of the National Conference of Christians and Jews and as former Chair- man of the National Attitudes Committee of the Catholic Asso- ciation for International Peace, Dr. Hayes has labored to bring about a better understanding of racial and religious differences. A report of the Peace Association entitled "The Church and the Jews," prepared' under his super- vision, pointed out that "as Chris- tians we must exert ourselves to the utmost in order to dispel the prevalent poisonous (anti-Jewish) atmosphere of falsehood and hate." Another report of the Catholic Peace Association prepared un- der his supervision was entitled "Patriotism, Nationalism, and the Brotherhood of Man." In 1928, dur- ing the presidential compaign of Alfred E. Smith, Dr. Hayes head- ed a committee set up "to dispel religious bigotry in the United  States." Dr. Hayes became a convert to the Catholic Church in 1904. He has said that among the many rea- sons for this step, one of the most i important was his historical study. Fr. Win. Duffy, C.S.Sp., Dead; Was Chaplains' Corps Captain Philadelphia. (E)The Rev. Wil- liam F. P. Duffy, C. S. Sp., a captain in the Chaplains' Corps of the United States Army, former pastor here and former superior of his community's Puerto Rico missions, has died at St. Mary's Hospital. Two brothers, also Holy Ghost Fathers, participated in the Solemn Requiem Mass at Blessed Sacrament Church. Father Puffy became ill shortly after receiving his commission as [a captain six months ago. He had been stationed at Fort Jackson, S. C. A native of Philadelphia, Father I Duffy was ordained in 1927 at the Holy Ghost Seminary, Narwalk i Conn,, after studying at the Holy Ghost Missionary College, Corn- wells Heights, Pa. Joseph A.
