li i , PAGE SIX College, Academy and School SUBIACO COLLEGE NOTES Lunch a la Fist Monday, April 5, was the day set down for a long hike through the mountains but the inclemency of the weather forbid that this walk should take place. The youths therefore merely stayed around the building all of thd morning amusing themselves in the bowling alley, library, armory or gymnasium. But in the aftemoon the sky had cleared off sufficiently to insure good weather for the rest of the day and so the entire student body decamped "en masse" for the hills and woods where all spent the after- noon very enjoyably. A lunch Was selwed in the middle of the evening and the boys certainly made away with a su2)rising amount of sand- witches and hot coffee. In the latter part of the day the bunch returned to the school and all voted the outing a perfect success. Competitive Drills The Drill Contests opened Wednes- day, April 7. There will be a con- test for the Commissioned Officers the non-corns, and the privates• Just what the prizes will be is not yet as- certained but it is supposed that the best private will be awarded a gold medal. The two classes of officers will also have prizes worth compet- ing for. We are not able in this is- sue to give the names of the various contestants but we hope that by pro- cess of elimination the squads will soon be reduced to. a select few. The Drill held Wednesday, was the same old flale---Excellent Dramatic Club. The Comical Sketches produced by the Dramatic Club Thursday, April 7, were excellent in the extreme but owing to a steady downpour of rain the crowd was missing in quantity. However the yotng actors played the different acts for the students and kept them in an uproar of laughter from start to finish. G. Robertson and P. Williams shouldered the heavy loads, playing four different roles each. They were reinforced by J. O'Regan, A. Selig, W. Parker and R. Woodard took minor parts.' t The Sketch in which much music occured made a decided hit. The Clarinet solos by James O'Regan were posi- tively beautiful and the way the young gentleman made his fingers glide over the keys in playing a real fast rag-tlme piece was a revelation. The singing of Jno. Murphy can only he equalley by the way in which A. Selig sang "I am waiting for Tomor- row." W. Parker also sang. G. Robertson and P. Williams while play- ing the roles of negroes rendered two very comical "nigger" songs in a real nice manner. Scrappy Scranton Scrapped. The Scranton, Ark., team journeyed to Subiae0, confident of victory and declared that they were to "clean house." This was all very nice but oui- team also took into their heads to do a little "cleaning" also. Some- booty must have told Phillips, our pitcher that we wanted to win the game, be.cause in all of that nine in- ning game those poor lads did not get even one solitary little hit. Try as they would they could not find Phil- lips and he held them at his mercy throughout the contest. Eleven of the Scranton boys struck out. The other 16 of their outs were due to Sublaeo's air-tight infield and to the three "wells" in the outfield. No matter how hard the ball was hit somebody was there to stop it and make the play• RSgers, our captain, and catcher, discouraged all attempts ,at stealing bases on their part before the game had more than started. Hfi "peg" is great. The score was, Subiaco 4, Scranton 0. Subiaco for the first few innings was a the mercy of Young, the Scranton twirler, but found him in the fourth. The score was 0-0• Rob- ertson got on base. Raible stepped to the plate and drove the ball on the line to right-center field for two bases and Robertson flying" around the bases scored with our first tally and had we known it, with the only needed run. Later ,Murphy in an at- tempt to steal third base caused the pitcher o throw wild to third and taking desperate chances slid across the plate with our second counter: Two other runs (by Robertson and Ralble) counted when Rogers drove the sphere to right field for a two- base hit. The gae was played in a very short time and will be commemorated as it was one of those famous games known as "No-hit" games and this is even rfiore astounding when we r con- sider that the opponents ar reputed to be heavy ,hitters. NEW MARYKNOLL CENTERS ON THE PACIFIC COAS (Maryknoll Notes) The American Foreign Missions have established two more centers on the Pacific Coast in addition to that at San FranciSco--one at Los An- geles, the other at Seattle. In' both places special attention will be given to work among Japa- nese children, and the Maryknoll sisters will assist Japanese nuns in this field. The Rev. George Staub of Mary- knoll has already taken up his resi- dence in Los Angeles; and, at Seattle property is being secured for the Maryknoll Mission. Fr. Breton, of the Paris Seminary, a seasoned missioner from Japan, will assist our American missioners in this new work. Bishop Cantwell of Los Angeles, and Bishop O'Dea of Seattle, are both deeply interested in the undelaking. ST. LOUIS UNIVERSITY "DoubleCrossed" Double-Crossed, a modern drama in THE GUARDIAN.

Lamentable Accident Brings Death to Master Stanley Bodziok and Grief to His Strickened Family. Fmleral Services by Rev. Dr. Stocker A very sad accident occurred here the day before yesterday, April 5th, when Stanislaus Bodziok, the twelve- three acts is being presented by the year-old son of John Bodzi'ok, was tudents of the Hiho School De,.'t., I killed instantly by a motor truck run- of St. Louis Univel:sity.

The accident was nobody's fault, for one cannot blame boys for their boyish pranks of jumping upon running motors. The: driver, Mr. Johnson, was entirely un- aware that anybody had boarded his recalled the words of St. Paul, "that they should not be sad like those that have no hope," and he went on to dwell on the hopes of resurrection and i reunion in heaven. In conclusion he remarked that as this great affliction of the Bodziok family had called forth the sympthy of the whole town, so we should in other circumstances of life endeavor to have a kindly feling towards one another. Such, he said, is counted as a badge of Christ's dis- c|pleship. The audience was largely Protest- ant, most of whom had never seen a Catholic ser¢ice nor heard a Catholic priest deliver a sermon. They were very attentive and appreciative listen- ers. On the way to the cemetery the eighth grade of the Hartford school marched ahead of the hearse, led by the principal of the school and the teacher of the eighth grade• Stanley had been a bright and beloved pupil of that public school. At the grave some Polish friends sang a song in their mother tongue. If gefierai sympathy is a balm for wounded hearts, Mr. and Mrs. Bodziok have had at least one consolation in their hour of bereavement. A CATHOLIC MOTHER Writes "Valerihn" i'n the Brooklyn "Tablet :" "jkmittyville (Long Island) wit- of'the Creator and Ruler of mankind we are led to respect that freedom with a feeling akin to reverence• Its claim is more than humanity just: it is sacred. "Briefly, then, since we desire that democracy should be based on intelli- gence, and since intelligence looks for the reason of things, we hold that religion supplies the highest reason for those attituffes, convictions aml purposes which unite to form the spirit of democracy and give it not merely on outward form but an inner vitality• Religion and Moral Training• "The need of religion as the basis of moral training and as the center of all education is emphasized by the fact that the existence of religion it- self is at stake. The exclusion of religion from the school means, even- tually, its disappearance from society and from the whole life of the people. It cannot be reasonably expected that men and women who have leanaed not[aing of God in their schooldays will seek and find Him in their ma- turer years• If literature, histmT and science are taught and studied with- out refereice to the truths of religion, out reference to the lthese truths will be influential for the guidance of con- duct. Religion at least will come to be regarded qs an interesting phenom- enon which the historian and psychol- ogist may study, but which has no more significance for life than the 'myths of the ancient world.. Democracy and Reli "We thus come in view of question: Shall the which we are hoping and low any scope or fluence to religion? If so, education which prepares racy must be religious and well as intellectual. Neither $ of government or as a tude, nor as a system of democracy serve as a religion.

Th6 human ele- ment in business, Mr. Gorman be- lieves, is the foundation of success. Always Gets There. The outstanding trait in Mr. Gor- man's career is the fact that when he starts out to do anything, it is ac- complished. This trait he admires ,u others. The chap who is lackadasical about his work and his ompany and whose aim in life is to be the first I one out the door when the clock strikes five, does not get a great deal i of encouragement from him. Mr. i Gorman never has had any patience with the fellow who "cannot take a message to Garcia." Carrying On. • "Mr. Gorman is a "yes" man instead of a "no" man. When a problem, no matter how intricate, has to be solved he does not postpone action indefi- nitely but "carriers on" at once• He will not allow himself to be defeated on any undertaking he sets his hands to do. r Stick-to-it-iveness. "Handicapped by ta lack of higher: education, by being one of nine child- ren with parents in quite moderate circumstances, Mr. Gorman's success in the railroad world has been due to i his natural ability, his genuine apti- !tud for hard work an} long hours and, to sum it up in a modern word to his "stick-to-iveness." If •the word, "impossible," is in his vocabu- lary, he has kept it discreetly in the dim background of the years A Demand For Big Men. It is easier to obtain an education now than it was in Mr. Gorman's boy- hood• The average American youth does not have to educate himself by burning the midnight oil during spare hours, like many of the present day rail chiefs did in the halcyon days of yore. The working day is shorter, the pay is far greater and the oppor- tunity for advancement is practically unlimited. The business world is clamoring for me capable of filling i executive positions at high salaries, despite the general industrial unrest, which always follows in the wake of war. The New World is in an era of prosperity that eclipses anything m history. No captain of industry, large manu- facturer, railroad president nor bank- i er of the present time wa born with a silver spoon in his mouth, so to speak. The mere possession of in- herited wealth will not get a man anywhere in this day and age.' The globe moves around at too fast a clip. The future executives are the chaps who are now plodding, alofig in more humble capacities, learning their various lines of endeavor, saving as much as is consistent with good living and building the founcation for rut- motor from the side.

J.W. funeral. The little church was eowd- ed from the door to the steps of the altar. 'After the Requiem Mass and the absolution, Dr. Stocker preached a lengthy sermon, telling how his Easter joy received a rude shock by I the intelligence of this tragedy. We I read of such happenings in the paper every day, he said, and little think that what is merely an item of new I to us means a tragddy to many others. He dwelled on the lovely traits of the deceased boyhis gentleness, his studious habits, his innocence and his desire to become a priest. And now these hopes are blasted. But all is not gloom even at a funeral. The speaker called attention to the Provi- dence of God which watches over all the events of this world. Nothing hap- pens at random.
