(---Joe Rosenthal, Associated Press photographer whose famous picture of Marines planting the American flag on Mount Suribacki on Iwo Jima, may be reproduced on a postage stamp, is a convert to the Catholic Faith. Born in Washington, D.C., 35 ,ears ago, a member of a Jewish family, he was converted to Ca- tholicism in San Francisco and baptised there on August 19, 1939, in the chapel of Mary's Help Hos- pital by the Rev. Mark W. Lap- pen, hospital chaplain, under whom he received instructions. In an interview here, Mr. Rosenthat said that his conversion came through the example of a Catholic family he had met shortly after moving to California in 1930. "Shortly after I snapped the Marines, a Catholic chaplain of- fered Mass right in the shadow of the newly-raised flag," he said. "I didn't know about it until it was over. I wish I could have made a picture of that." The Catholic [nstitute of the Press here has announced that it will award a plaque to Mr. Rosen- thal for his achievement in photo- graphing the flag raising, which is considered a classic of this war. M'of.her Of 17--Has Given Nine To Service San Diego, Calif. O0--Louis- Jean-Baptiste Senez of Montreal, Canada, mother of 17 children, has seen nine of her sons go off to war, it is reported by her brother, H. W. Melanson, of St. Didacus parish here. The Senez family has been honored by the Cana- dian government. One of the Senez sons, Wilfred, was killed in air action over Germany. Mr. Melanson has three sons in the ;ervice, another son is a student or the priesthood and a daughter IS a nun. In his first public appearance since his :consecrti0n by Archbishop Francis J. Spellman in St. Patrick's Cathedral, New York, the Most Rev. Joseph P. Donahue, Auxiliary Bishop of New York, dons an apron'to serve guests in the Home for the Aged, conducted by the Little Sisters of the Poor. Each year, on the Feast of St. Joseph, patron saint of the Order, priests from nearby parishes come to the home to wait on the aged guests. In the photo, Bishop Donahue pours tea for Abby O'Connell, a native of County Down, Ireland, who celebrated her 100th birthday.on St. Patrick's Day. (NCWCL I00hinelana Catholics Gain Str,:,nger Faith I a '''|r '-v *" " ,v,rn Suffer,ng By Dr. Max Jordan (War Correspondent, N.C.W.C. News Service) Cologne. (By Radio).--Despite systematic efforts over a period of twelve years the Nazi regime has not succeeded in uprooting the Christian faith of the German people. This is the conclusion I have reached after attending the Holy Week and Easter services in various churches of this Rhine metropolis, and as the result of numerous con- versations with Catholics through- Bishop Urges Cooperation On (Jergy Night' Little Rock. -- His Excellency, the Most. Reverend Bishop has given stimulus to the Knights of Columbus "Clergy Night" to he held Tuesday, April 17th, in a let- ter addressed to Leo J. Krebs, Grand Knight. Expressing his approval of the "get-together" of clergy and Knights, Bishop Morris urges them to work together to spread the knowledge of the Holy Religion, stating: "I think your idea of having a special 'Clergy Night' in connec- tion with the meeting of the Knights of Columbus on Tuesday, April 17th, is a splendid one. I am happy to give my approval and I feel that the clergy of the City will enjoy a little 'get-to- gether' with our Catholic laymen. The clergy and laity must work together to spread the knowledge of our Holy Religion and certainly any activity which brings them to- gether and helps them to become better acquainted with each other will be beneficial to all of us." The first meeting of this sort for the Little Rock Knights, it is being eagerly anticipated by Coun- cil No. 812. "Clergy Night" is one of the annual programs of Knights of Columbus especially in large communities where a number of members reside, and Little Rock Council No. 812 hopes to see it become a tradition in Arkansas as well. Country's Highest Honor Awarded To Hero's Widow Fort Atkinson. 0)--Sgt. Gerald L. Endl, of St. Joseph's church here, has been awarded the Con- gressional Medal of Honor post- humously, for conspicious gal- lantry in action in New Guinea. The Medal was presented to Ser- geant Endl's widow, Mrs..Anna Marie Endl, in the presence of his parents, American Legion officials and hundreds of friends. The citation states that Sergeant Endl held off the enemy while his men crawled under cover to evac- uate the wounded and to xwith- draw. "Courageously refusing to abandon four more wounded men, he brought them back to safety, one by one," the citation states. "As he was carrying the last man, he was struck by a heavy burst of automatic fire and killed." out the Rhineland. Even though many churches are destroyed, many others severely damaged and most other Catholic institutions, such as schools, hos- pitals and orphanages, suffered heavily,,there can be no question that today the Catholic Church re- mains the only organized religious force in a battered Germany. Ca- tholics are following the leader- ship of their Bishops more fervent- ly than ever, and many non-Cath- olics long for the guidance of the Church in the midst of the appal- ling chaos and confusion Hitler's tottering "Third Reich" leaves be- hind. In this city, which has been fre- quently called the "German Rome," it is not easy to find places of Catholic worship, simply be- cause most churches and buildings are in ruins or completely burned out. But many pastors found ways to meet the emergency. In the parishes of St. Gereon and St. Ursula, for instance, the crypts underneath the wrecked church structures ae being used. In oth- er parishes, sacristies or nearby offices and apartments that escap- ed destruction are f(tted out for over-crowded services. Reminded Of Early Christians The, fervor of thesd congrega- tions, who have gone t Fough the ordeal of six years ofHitlerism and almost six years of total war, remind the observer of the exper- mnces reported by the early Christians. It was during air raids na'rticularly that the faith of these harassed Catholics revived with an intensity that is difficult to be appreciated by those accustomed to normal church life. Confined for manY hours in un- derground shelters, reciting pray- ers while exposed to the constant danger of death, prayers that sprang from deep anxmw ann suz- fering, prayers that united all in a true spirit of christian brother- hood, these Catholics came to real- ize the deep meaning of the Cross to an extent they might never have experienced unaer zmrmai circumstances. Victims of Nazi persecution found refuge in the air-raid shel- ter of the Archbishop of Cologne. Catholic boy scouts had discov- ered long unused subterranean passages of the ancient building which had eluded the Gostapo ....  aain There nine Jew- were b,dden over a period of four months without ever being discovered. tlidden From GtaPhelter [ My inspection oz proved an amazing expeller:;, a was colwpletely eq.U ppt ,.. : i emereis Kicnen. nvmg wlth l See Ii[ILAND On page 8 Latest Listing of Seminary 1 Burses Is Published Today No greater act of charity, no greater spiritual security, no more soul satisfying sacrifice could be made which would exceed that of assisting and participating in the education of a young man for the Priesthood. Consequently, The Guardian is happy to publish the latest figures on the Burses that make up the Seminary Endowment Fund. A Burse is a sum of money in the amount of $5,000.00 which when placed in the Endowment Fund is supposed to draw sufficient interest to defray the major portion of the expense entailed in edu- cating a young man for the Priesthood. With the present low rate of interest, Burses at the present time do not completely satisfy the purpose for which they were founde-L The Seminary continues to accept gratefully Burses on the same schedule as it has in the past, and all the spiritual benefits, namely daily prayers of the student body, Masses throughout the year for the donors will continue to be. offered up.
