(E)--A young Italian priest who was ordained here in 1940 has been killed by bandits in Sicily, according to advice re- ceived here. He was the Rex,. Francis Scozzari, S.J., a native of Caltanisetta Province, Sicily, who left here last fall to return to his home.

(E)--The Rev. Gerard from the main body of troops and Taggert, Army chaplain, came back with the Silver Star and the Purple Heart decoration after two and a half years overseas, but the most unusual keepsake he brought back from the European theater of war was his own Requiem Mass card. A son of Mr. and Mrs. John Taggert, of Scardale, N.Y., Father Taggert was stationed at Sacred tIeart Church, Staten Island, be- fore entering the Army in Au- gust 1942. He was with his men when they landed on the beaches of France on D-Day, and he con- tinued with them as they cap- tured St. Lo and spearheaded the American drive toward Germany. Father Taggert's gallantry., at France, won him the iiver. 00ire, tar.

He was with wounded and dying men in a barn which was used as a dressing station when it was surrounded by Storm Troopers. He shouted in German, "Wounded! Don't shoot, don't shoot." The Germans de- manded to see the wounded and Father Taggert mustered ten cas- ualties to the door of the barn. The Germans ordered the wound- ed to "come here" and as they were advancing, Father Taggert said, the enemy opened fire. "The boy on each side of me was hit," he continued. "We all fell with them and that's why we're alive today. The Germans who committed that atrocity were punished, I heard later." Father Taggert led the sur- vivors of the battle through enemy lines back to their own division. During his absence, cas- ualities were evacuated to Eng- land, and when no news was re- ceived from him he was assumed to be dead. Requiem Masses were offered for him in three parish churches in England and Requiem Mass cards were printed. It is one of these cards, somewhat fray- ed and worn, that he has brought back with him. The card asks prayers for the repose of the soul -of Chaplain Taggert "who gave his life in battle, June, 1944." Continuing, the article adds that it was not Osservatore but Izvestia that mentioned Soviet terrorism, and that if the news published by 0sservtore is calumnious, such a charge should be proved, not merely asserted. Osservatore af- firms that public opinion can judge whether or not it is Ger- manophile and whether it speaks in the interests of Democracy. The paver asks Izvestl why it charges Os'servatore with being reaction- ary, Germanophile and anti- Democratic without even once cit- ing texts objectively to support such charges. Abandons Medical Practice To Be Ordained Dublin. (K)At the age of 63 and after engaging in the practice of medicine for more than 35 years, the Rev. Cornelius C. Hickey, former medical officer at the West Clare seaside resort of Kil- kee, was ordained to the priest- hood at St. James' Church, Read- ing England, to serve in the Dio- cese of Portsmouth. Father Hickey is a native of Kilkee and entered the practice of medicine in 1906. He practiced for many years in London at Westminster Hospital and served as an instructor in anatomy at King's College, University of Lon- don. He is the author of several highly-regarded works on cancer and other diseases. He succeeded his father, Dr. P. C. Hickey,, as medical officer of Kilkee, and following the death of his mother he decided to aban- don the practice of medicine and enter religious life. He studied at l a late vocation seminary in Eng- I land. _ : : = [ Faith contains not only the su- I preme truth but it furnishes the supermost and best consolation.'

(:)--The first re- leases of the National Catholic Welfare Conference News Service were dispatched to subscribing papers 25 years ago today. The N.C.W.C. News Service, sometimes designated by the shortened form NC, was inaugu- rated soon after the close of World War L It is the work of the Press Department of the National Ca- tholic Welfare Conference, the or- ganization formed by the Bishops of the United States to succeed, in peace time, the National Cath- olic War Council of the first world conflict. The Service observes its silver jubilee in the midst of World War II. Pope Benedict XV, in 1920, ex- pressed the wish that the News Service 'may bear ever more abundant fruits and, like the Evangelical mustard seed, grow into a strong and mighty tree which under the shadow of its branches will gather all the souls thirsting after truth, all the hearts beating for the good." Holy Father's Praise Last November, His Holiness Pope Plus XII extolled the achievements of the N.C.W.C. News Service, calling it a truly "practical and forward-looking expression of American Catholic Action," and a "great medium for the dissemination of Catholic doc- trine and the correct interpreta- tion of world events in the light of unchanging Christian truths and principles," and affirmed it had played a "truly outstanding role." Nation-Wide Observance Of NCCS Jubilee Washington. ()--The nation- wide observance of the fourth an- niversary of the National Catlolic Community Service will take place in approximately 500 USO clubs across the country on April 21. Under the motto, "NCCS Serves All Who Serve," the National Ca- tholic Community Service, a mem- ber agency of USO supported by the American people through the National War Fund, will pay special tribute this year to 300,- 000 volunteers who have served the organization faithfully. These volunteers have contrib- uted 39,000,000 hours, or the equivalent of 445 years of service, over a period of less than four years, statistics at headquarters here indicate. They have stood long hours at snack bars; checked wraps and parcels; answered a variety of questions at the infor- mation desk. They have provided hospitality, opened their homes to those who required emergency housing, and have achieved an outstanding record in citizen co- operation in hundreds of com- munities. The Archbishops and Bishops of the United States created the Na- tional Catholic Community Service to provide for the spiritual, recrea- tional and welfare needs of the ARNETT DRUG STORE WEST MEMPHIS ARKANSAS DELTA ICE COMPANY Save With Ice WEST MEMPHIS ARKANSAS PAGE THREE Encyclopedia Donated to Seminary Library: It is with an expression of sincere gratitude to Miss Mary Pierce Keith of Little Rock, that we acknowledge her fine gift of a twelve volume encyclopedia to the Seminary Library. Miss Keith has contributed much with this set of books to- ward the development of a finer and more extensive library for the Seminarians. Contributions such as this will one day result in St. John's Seminary having one of the finest libraries in this locale. The Rev.

Troops, Arrives In Paris By Dr. Max Jordan Paris. (:)--His Eminence Au- gust Cardinal Hlond, Primate of Poland, arrived at an airport here today after having been released from German captivity by the American Ninth Army on Easter Sunday at Wiedenbrueck near Paderborn in Westphalia. The Cardinal appeared in excellent health and fine spirits. Cardinal Hlond was welcomed by Col. Anthony J. Drexel Biddle, former United States Ambassador to Poland, who is now deputy chief, European Allied Contact Section, Allied Supreme Head- quarters; Gen. Kazimir Shally, chief of the Polish Military Mis- sion to France; his aid, Col. Jan- usz Ilinski, the Rev. Leon Plater, chief of Polish Chaplains in France, and Col. Kazimir Ga- berle, who represented the Polish Ambassador to France, Kajetan Morwaski, whose guest Cardinal Hlond, will be while staying in Paris. The Cardinal was brought here in a special plane placed at his disposal by General Omar Brad- ley, Commander of the Twelfth Army Group. His pilot was Capt. William Fadler of Joplin, Mo. "The Americans have freed me on Easter Sunday from the Ge- stapo," Cardinal Hlond told smil- ingly the assembled American and Polish officials, adding in French to Colonel Biddle: "I am very :grateful to General Bradley for i having permitted me the use of this plane." When this correspondent was introduced to His Eminence, he expressed particular pleasure, adding "I give my blessing to all the American people and partic- ularly to the American Catholic )ress." In the course of an informal interview the 63-year-old Cardi- nal said that he had been held a captive by the Germans for four- teen months in the convent of the Congregation of Christian Char- ity at Wiedenbrueck, near Pader- born in Westphalia. He said he was able to offer Mass each day but that he had no permission to leave the premises of the convent. His only companion was his secretary, Father Filibiak, who was arrested with him at the time they were staying at Lourdes in France Both were taken to Bar- le-Duc where they were held in- men and women in the armed ser- vices, and through its Women's Division to care for the needs of war production workers in over- crowded industrial areas, as well as their families and those of ser- vice personnel. :communicado in a private apart- I ment for two months, even being ]prevented fr0m =saying Mass.
