Massiani Paris 0n--The Cardinals and Archbishops of France, holding their general assembly at Paris, issued a joint statement addressed not just to Catholics but to the entire nation and recommending the most complete union grouped about the Chief of the Provisional Govern- ment, who, "after having made incarnate our hope of deliverance, has contributed so much, with our Allies, to the liberation of almost all of the territory." The prelates emphasize that their message is foreign to any party spirit; that theirs is merely an ardent appeal for national reconciliation. They call upon all citizens to banish any division that may remain among them in cer- tain fields. After the Calvary of these last five years, they coun- sel, "Let us definitely banish the spirit of denunciation, suspicion and vengeance; let us leave to the justice of the State those unfor- tmate ones whose crime of vol- untary treason is jurdically prov- ca; but let us be convinced that Frenchmen as a whole want to serve their country and remain faithful to it." Church And State Catholics are urged to set an example in respecting the State: "The Church teaches that the State possesses a sovereign au- thority in its sphere and in the exercise of its proper mission... She only asks of the State re- spect for her independence and the possibility of fulfilling ef- ficaciously her full spiritual and social mission. "The State would be the first to benefit from this concurrence with the Church since she would guarantee the fecundity, stability and fidelity of homes; would dif- fuse into professions a love of labor, justice, and charity among classes; would cause obligations of conscience and honesty in con- tracts to be respected, would be- come the firm support of public morality. Discuss School Problem The Archbishops ask a just solution for the school problem, and call for complete understand- ing between educators and clergy. They insist that freedom of teach- ing be assured by participation oL the State in support of the Chris- tian schools. Since the very purpose of this LIBERTY BELL STORE James Rutledge, Owner 'WEST MEMPHIS ARKANSAS war and the meaning of an Allied victory is condemnation of the totalitarian State, the French pre- lates see in this another reason for avoiding the creation of the stole unique (single school sys- tem). The Social Question With regard to the social prOb- lem, the prelates proclaim that with the Popes they condemn "the scandal of the condition of the proletariate; that is to say, that status of insecurity, economic de- pendence and ofen misery which deprives numerous workers of any truly humane life." For the creation of a better social order, the prelates ask Ca- tholics to be ready to collaborate with all men of good will, regard- less of their creed, who have this same desire: "Beyond the plan of material reforms, let us for the common good, and with faith in Jesus Christ, bring about the moral clime essential to the peace- able and lasting realization of these refo-ms: the clime which our doctrine of social justice and peace creates."

Tokyo Ordered Manila Destroyed Romulo Tells Catholic Institute New York. (E)--Documentary proof that orders to destroy Manila and kill its inhabitants were sent direct from Tokyo to the Japanese army in the Philippines will be placed before Congress on April 17, Brig. Gen. Carlos P. Romulo, Resident Commissioner of the Philippines, declared today at the first annual Communion breakfast of the Catholic Institute of the Press. "On that day," he said, "I shall have the opportunity to indict the Japanese through affidavits and photographs which will establish !the fact that orders to destroy Manila and kill its inhabitants came from Tokyo. And most of this proof was taken from dead Japanese officers." The breakfast was marked by the awarding of a plaque to Joseph John Rosenthal, Associated Press ohotographer, whose picture of U.S. Marines raising the Stars and a great while we say, get the habit, come together with your Stripes on Mt. Suribachi, on Iwo Jima, has been hailed as one of the war's most inspiring pictures. Mr. Rosenthal is a Catholic con- vert. After receiving the plaque he presented it to the Associated Press. It was accepted on behalf of the organization by Alan J. Gould, Assistant General Manager, who said the plaque would be placed on permanent display at Associated Press headquarters here. The inscription on the plaque reads: "Faith in God was his armor, his weapons valor and skill. He served in the best tradi- tion of the American press photo- grapher." The Right Rev. Msgr. Fulton J. Sheen, of the Catholic University of America, another speaker, said that the coming San Francisco con- ference represents "the last chance civilizatkm will have to assure a permanent peace." "It is the end of tim trail," he said. "it's the last chance our Brothers and Sister members. Do western world will have to save n . i . ot pass up or surrender one of iwestern civilization. We shall the greatest privileges you have as ]never be given, another." a member of the Catholic Knights I Other speakers were the Most of America. Once we get this trey. J. Francis A.

Bishop Asks Prayers For Success Of Conference Scranton. (E)--The Most Rev. William J. Hafey, Bishop of Scranton, in a "Message Rlative to the San Francisco Conference of Nations" appeals to pastors and their flocks "to storm Heaven on the three Sunday nights preced- ing the opening of the Conference that out of this Conference will come the framework of a world organization for peace that will deserve the blessing of God." Bishop Hafey also urges atten- dance at peace meetings called throughout the diocese, and study of the nine-point program pro- posed through the Rev. E. A. Con- way, S.J., of the Social Action Department of the National Ca- tholic Welfare Conference which suggests certain improvements of the Dumbarton Oaks proposals. "May our nation at San Fran- cisco speak forth," Bishop Hafey declares, "that there can be no peace in a world, half slave and half free, that this war is only the prelude to an even more calamit- ous orgy of destruction and blood- letting unless to all peoples, in- eluding the Russians, are given back their God-given rights to live as men and not as pawns of an ominpotent state." WEST MEMPHIS LAUNDRY & CLEANERS Phone 21 West Memphis Arkansas [ Business Women's | | Club | Little Rock.--Miss Willie Law- son, executive secretary of the Arkansas Education Association, gave a very interesting talk on "Alaska" at the April dinner meeting of the Catholic Business Women's Club held at the Freid- erica Hotel, Monday evening. The guest speaker was introduced by Miss Louise Malarcher, program chairman. Miss Margaret Pargen, presi- dent, presided at the meeting and usual reports, minutes, etc., were read and approved. She an- nounced that the members of the club will receive Holy Communion in a body at the 8:30 Mass at St. Edward Church on Sunday, April 15. Miss Dorothy Summers, recreation chairman, asked that reservations be made immediately for the breakfast which will be served the membersand their guests following the Mass. Father Patrick Lynch, club counselor, urged the members to be present at this important annual event and expressed a desire for a hundred percent attendance. American Fire No Picnic Writes Sergeant New Orleans. (E}In. a turn about occasioned by the vagaries of war', Sgt. E. James Williams, an alunmus of Jesuit High School, here, discovered what it's like to be under fire of the Americans. In a letter received here he re- lated how he was held prisoner by the Germans for four days without food or water before he was liberated. With a group of infantrymen, Sergeant Williams was taken prisoner by the Germans and lodged in a schoolhouse amid ceaseless tank and mortar fire. Soon the prisoners were transfer- red to a church. "At first I thought they were going to shoot us," Sergeant Wil- liams wrote, "and to make it worse they made a squad leader out of me. Shells hit the other end of the Church. I said the Rosary on my fingers before a statue of the Virgin Mary, made my peace with God and then didn't care where the next one landed. I was all through sweating. It was that bad " About noon of the fourth day, the Americans again cut loose with terrific shell fire, Sergeant Wil- liams wrote. "When that American sergeant opened the doors of the church I actually cried for joy," he continued, "the Good Lord sure had His arms around my neck for four days." The ser- geant added the lack of food and water wasn't the Germans' fault. They didn't have any either. Regards to FATHER JANESKO r i McCaa Chevrolet Co. West Memphis, Arkansas Little Rock.--Our Lady of Per- petual Help Court, No. 1223, Ca- !tholic Daughters of America, will spend a Day of Recollection at Catholic High School on Sunday, April 22rid, beginning with Holy Mass at ight o'clock in the chapel. This one day retreat, to be con- ducted by the Rt. Rev. Msgr. Jno. J. Healy as Retreatmaster, has caused unusual enthusiasm among the members. Realizing that op- portunities for such a privilege as this come so seldom in a busy, work-a-day world, the Committee is bending every effort to provide a day's program which will be one of spiritual joy for all participat- ing. Since Monsignor Healy is widely known in the role of Re- ArchbishopAsks Aid For Poles In Rebuilding Chicago. (JC)Poles are in dire need of help to reconstruct their normal religious life, declared the Most Rev. Samuel A. Stritch, Archbishop of Chicago, in a spec- ial message to American Catholics of Polish descent bespeaking their support of the Catholic League (League for Religious Assistance to Poland). "We commend its noble work," the message said, "and second its appeal to all who know and un- derstand that Christian truth is of the very fabric of Polish culture. At the outposts of western Chris- tian culture, through many cen- tur!es, Poland stood a bulwark, an Impregnable fortress. We shall answer this appeal and show our brotherliness to a people which is brave enough to suffer for righteousness and Christian enough to grow in greatness as the Cross presses heavier on its shoulders." While plans have been drawn and supplies massed to bring relief into Poland just as soon as the authorities in control give permis- sion, there is, however, another need in Poland which is seldom mentioned, the Archbishop said. "Very many churches, schools and institutions of charity have been destroyed. Very many others have been sacked and closed. Horrible profanations of sanctuaries have occurred Bishops and priests and religious have been imprison- ed or .sent, into concentration camps. Tim ancient Church of Poland today is in dire need. Cer- tainly to help this great Christian people reconstruct their normal religious life is an outstanding work of relief." :et Pound Foolish According to treasury estimates, the total cost of the first World War to the U.S. including uncol- lected foreign debts, was more than $41 billion up to 1934. Act- ual war and navy department costs for the conflict itself were approximately $19 billion.
