A large number of relatives and friends attended the graduating exercises. A sacrifice of valuable time and effort has been made by every woman who is qualified to wear Philippine Bishop Dies At 76 Manila. 00--The Most Rev. James Paul McCloskey, Bishop of Jaro, died on April 9 at Santo Tomas University Hospital here at the age of 76. Pneumonia was the immediate cause of his death. Bishop McCloskey was a native of Philadelphia, where he studied for the priesthood at La Salle Col- lege and where he was ordained on December 17, 1898. He re- mained a priest of the Archdiocese until 1917 when he was elevated to the Episcopacy by His Holiness Pope Benedict XV. On May 1 of that year he was consecrated as Bishop of Zamboango in the Philippines, whence he was pro- meted to Jaro on March 8, 1920. One of his predecessors as Bishop of Jaro was His Eminence Dennis Cardinal Dougherty, Arch- bishop of Philadelphia, whom the then Father McCloskey in 1903 ac- companied to the Diocese of Neuva Segovia, to which Cardi- nal (then Bishop), Dougherty had just been appointed. From 1903 to 1905 Father McC1oskey served as Chancellor under Bishop Dougherty. In 1905 he returned to' his home diocese to assume the pastorate of St. Gcrtrude's Church in West Conshohockem In 1909 Father McCloskey sailed again for the Phil/ppines in response to the request o Bishop Dougherty, who meanwh/le had been promoted to the See of Jaro, of wh/ch he re- the blue denim pinafore, the white blouse, and the blue cap of the Nurses Aide. Of the 28 women who volunteered to take the training in Nurses Aide, ten have the responsibility of keeping house, eleven hold business posi- tions, one is a teacher and six are students at Arkansas State. These women who have com- pleted their Nurses Aide training have attended 35 hours of class work and have fulfilled 45 of floor work at the hospital. Sis- ter M. Hilda and Sr. M. Thom- asine of the hospital staff have been the directors of the class- room 'work, while the various floor supervisors at the hospital have been in charge of their work in the hospital. In addition to the 80 hours of work contributed, each of the 28 Nurses Aides has pledged a mini- mum of 150 hours of volunteer work per year as long as her ser- vices are needed. Instruct/on in first aid and gen- eral nursing procedure was given the volunteers. The classes which began January 16, were held each week-day evening, and hours at the hospital were as- signed from that time until the completion of the required amount of hospital time. The Nurses Aides have been on duty from 7 a.m. until i0 p.m., the past few weeks. Those women who volunteered for the training who were hold- ing business positions acquired their hours by working on Sun- days and after their regular hours. The Nurses Aide training is given in localities throughout the United States under the combined sponsorship of the Red Cross and the Civilian Defense Program The insignia which is awarded a ed Mrs. Jim Welsh with a G01d Nurses Aide is a round blue Star pin, in memory of her son shoulder patch upon which is who was killed in action in De- placed the white triangle of the cember.

Swarens. Defeated Japan May Turn To Christianity Honolulu. (E)--A strong possibil- ity that the Japanese may turn to Christianity after their defeat is seen by the Rev. James Ryan Hughes, M.M., editor of the Ca- tholie lIerald here, and before the war a Maryknoll missionary in Japan. Father Hughes points out that the Japanese are a people of ex- tremes. The two most probable courses open to them after the war, he believes, are either com- plete isolation, such as followed the failure of the Japanese con- quest of Korea 350 years ago, or, with Shintoism arid the emi0eror myth undermined by Allied vic- tory, a move towards a full Christian life. "In this second possibility," the Ill I II III H m a Red Cross placed inside of it. This is the third Nurses Aide class to graduate from St. Bernard's tIospital. Those women who completed their Nurses Aid training and re- ceived theh" caps, insignia, pin, and certificate in the graduating exercises were: Mrs. Herbert McAdmns, Jr., Mrs. George Ed- ward Love, Miss Florence Stuck, Mrs. R. C. McWilliams, Jr., Mrs. George Hallam, Mrs. E. Capelle, Miss Imogcne Watkins, Miss Mary McKlinn, Mrs. Charles P. Harris. Mrs. Ione D. Norton, Miss Ruth Proposed New Residence Hall The graduation program was as follows: Invocation, Father McCauley; song, student nurses of St. Ber- nard's Hospital; presenation of caps and pins, Mrs. D. F. Elliott; Red Cross Nurses Aide Pledge, led by Mrs. W. E. Harrell; ad- dress, T. H. Pryor; and song, stu- dent nurses. C K missioner states, "lies the hope of 1" permanent peace in the Pacific. [ The closed-door reaction would condemn 80,000,000 people to A starvation, bodily and spiritually.. The nations of the world owe it to themselves to forestall such disaster in their hour of triumph." Father Hughes points out that since 1524, when Christianity was introduced in their lhnd, individ- ual Japanese have shown them- selves willing by the thousands to die in testimony of their !aith, he said.

STATE OF ARKANSAS The State Deputy has issued his official call to the Knights of Columbus of Arkansas to assemble Council 1770 in Little Rock for their Annual Helena.--The Helena Council of State Convention, April 30th. the Knights of Columbus present- This meeting can be one of dis- cord and confusion, or one of harmony anad order. If we keep in mind the high and noble pur- pose for which we gather; will- ingly subordinate our individual ambitions to the welfare of the order, whenever they might con- flict, and motivate our delibera- tions and conclusions with the idea that the all-important pur- pose of the meeting is to promote growth and benefits of the Knights of Columbus in Arkansas, har- mony will restdt, and success will crown out" efforts. Unity of purpose and of action must be the result of a willing cooperation.of the individuals, and the mottves that prompt that co- operation must be unselfish and of the highest 6i'der. This brings us to a cons/drition of the in- dividual, for the individuals that make up the unity, and the lead- ers who direct it must be worthy, capable and willing, if the result of cooperative' action is to be wortiy. Let's select our officers with that idea in view; judge their ability by their past success, rath- er than by their spectacular prom- ises. Let their practical Cath- olicity be the determining factor in making your 'choice, and then give full support to the victor, whether he was our choice, or the choice of others. The State Deputy has suggested for consideration some construc- tive ideas. He has appealed to the subordinate councils to dis- cuss these things, in order thal their delegates at the convention might truly represent their opin- ions, and the conclusions arrived at, be that of tim ma'ority. last August.

They were taken out by a field goal after leading all the way to the very last moment of the game. Greenwood's Bulldogs, who eli- minated them, became eventual district champs. This seems the closest Subiaco has come to a championship in basketball since 1939, when they won the district crown and went to the state semi- finals. Pine Bluff bumped them off that year. 50,000 Rosaries Requested From Msgr. Sheen Washington. (E)--Fifty thousand requests from all sections of the country and from Canada were received by the National Council of Catholic Men here in response to the offer made by the Rt. Roy. Msgr. Fulton J. Sheen, of the Ca- tholic University of America, to send a Rosary to anyone, regard- less of religious affiliation, who was without one. Monsignor Sheen made the of- fer in the course of an address on the "Catholic Hour" which is broadcast by the National Broad- casting Company, to encourage new enlistments in the Daily Fam- ily Rosary Movement, which has its headquarters in Albany, N. Y., and is conducted by the Rev. Pat- rick Peyton, C.S.C. Requests for the Rosaries, which are .,ent out with a pamphlet on the Daily Family Rosary Move- ment, deluged the staff of the National Council of Catholic Men, officials said. It is esti- mated that approximately five per cent of the requests came from non-Catholics. Approximately 125 of the requests came from the residents of an Indian reservation, while hundreds of others came from school children. Oblate 66 Years; Dies Hull, Que.
