PAGE SIX THE GUARDIAN, SATURDAY, APRIL 21, 1923 a COLLEGES I.. R. COLLEGE Successful Track Meet Any uncertainty that may have been felt aboutthe size and populari- ty of the track meet which was heht :last Saturday on the College Athletic ield was effectively dispelled when the official announcer appeared on the scene to start the afternoon's pro- gram. For there were approximately one hundred atlfletes present ready and eager to compete in the events and a large crowd just as ready ant eager to watch them. As reported in the local newspa- pers, the meet was by far the best that the College has ever conducted. It was really an unqualified success-- a success which betokens the growing interests which the schools and col- leges throughout the state are mani- festing in Little Rock's annual sport- ing classic. Great Marathon Among the features of the day was the Marathon race from the City Hall to the College. The race was won by Fred Eberle of the High School, who covered the distance in forty minutes and fifteen seconds. There were thir- ty-one competitors in this event, twenty-seven of whom finished the race. The next was won by the Lonoke Athletic club, which scored 42 1-2 Theresa Kimmermann, Clementine Zimmerman, Joe Zimmerman, Ernest Zimmerman. After afternoon service all were enrolled in the confraternity. of the scapular of our Blessed Lady of Mount Carmell. Services closed with Te Deum l.,audamus.

The teams repre- senting these two organizations were evenly watched from the start And it was only when McCormick of Hen- drinks was forced to withdraw be- cause of an injured ankle that the Lonoke athletes took the lead and held it. By the arrangement of Coach Frank Letsig the track and field events were run off simultaneously. The meet was over at five-thirty and the prizes were then immediately awarded. The awarding of the prizes f, bok place on the steps of Fitzger- ald Hall. Gov. ''. C. McRae presented them. He was introduced by Father Fletcher. A handsome silver trophy cup was given to Fred Eberle, the winner of the Marathon. And the im dividual stars of the meet received either gold or silver medals. The Summary Carnival Pleasures The carnival which was held on Saturday in conjunction with' the track meet, was also a decided suc- cess. The proceeds of the carnival will go to the Athletic Association. Saturday evening there was a dance on the College oval. A large crowd attended.

VINCENT An impressive solmenity took place at St. Vincent April 15, when 28 chil- drsn received their solemn holy Com- munion. In the morning at half-past seven the children were assembled in the parish hail, waiting for the pas- tor, sisters and escort of little boys and girls, dressed in white and carry- ing a bundle of natural flowers, who would lead them in procession to the church. St. Vincent's band walked 'ahead of the procession playing a well drilled march. The banner of ty which they extend to their parents and friends. Last week the "Gran- deur of the Rockies" was the subject, and previous to that "Palestine, and Syria," "Italy Charming and Allur- ing," and "Joan of Arc" have been presented. The Sisters have a full school, one of. the largest in the his- tory of the Academy. Their orchestrs is the pride of,the parish. It is corn: posed of twenty-five pieces, and is always the outstanding feature of ev- ery social pleasure of the convent. Under the direction of the Sisters, the ehihlren, or rather the young girls of the parish, compose the choir of the church, and the Easter mass was sung ;]th indescribable beauty anti under- standing. When it comes to training chihlren, the Sisters of Charity can not be excelled. Academy Alumni The Alumni of the Adademy met in the parlors of the convent Friday evening to elect officers for the en- suing year anti transact other busi- ness. The elect(ion resulted in all the officers being re-elected: President, Mrs. Marshall McGuaghy; Secre- ry and Treasurer, Mrs. Henry peers; Corresponding Secretary, Miss Josephine Hope; Recording Sec- retary, Mrs. Neddo Marine. The an- nual Alumnia banquet will be held at the Convent on May 24th. The ladies[ also decided to haxe a candy sale in I the near future, the proceeds to be 1 given to the Sisters. Since the organ-/ ization of'the Almni some years ago, L/ the members have only held one so- cial meeting during the year, the ban- quet, but it was decided to have four social meetings during the year, and to meet at the home of the different members. This arrangement was unanimously agreed upon, as the only way to keep the spirit alive and the members in touch with each other. Teachers and Parents Association Kentucky, is ill at St. Bernard's Hos- pital. Mrs. Webb of Portageville, Ark., mother of Mrs. W. E. Webb, was oper- ated upon at St. Bernard's Hospital last Friday morning. Mrs. Adolph Cange and baby of St. Louis are visiting at the home of their parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Mason, on South Main street. The Misses Marguel'ite, Marion, Josephine, Genevive and Master Rich- ard Mason motored to Little Rock and Pine Bluff for a week-end visit with their sister and brother. At a meeting of the Boys' Brigade on Sunday afternoon, plans were made for the Observance of Boys' Week. On Tuesday afternoon they will participate with the Jonesboro boys in a boys' parade. On Wednes- day night they will give a minstrcl show in St. Roman's parish hall, and Thursday afternoon will have track imeet. A baseball team has been or- ganized and challenges sent out to near-by towns. Regretful Departure E. J. Mason left recently for Des Moines, Iowa, to become manager of the Omaha Hardwood Lumber Com- pany. His family will join him about the middle of June. Mr. Mason has sohl his residence on South Madison street to Thomas Burress. Mr. Mason was formerly vice presi- dent of the Jonesboro Trust Company. Prior to his connection with the bank eight years ago, he engaged in the lumber industry, and his long experi- ence well 15repares him for the lucra- tive position he has secured in Iowa. Honor Party Mesdahaes F. E. MeLain, W. It. Crawshaw and F. J. English enter- tained five tables of guests at bridge recently in the home of Mr. and Mrs. McClain on Care avenue in honor oi Mrs. William ttopkins, formerly of this city but now living at El Dorado, who is here visiting her son, James P. "the Men's Society and the many chil- dren's banners fluttered attractively in the cool breeze of the morning air, tinted as it were, by the rays of .the golden sun. Nature, weather and the behavior of the children and the good organization of the procession,, marshalled by the Venerable Sisters seemed to join hands to beautify th'e whole solemni- ty of the day. After the procession had returned to the church all Com- municants walked up to the Sanctu- ary, which was nicely decorated, and formed a half circle before the altar, to renew their baptismal vows. Rev. Father J. Friar Oudenhoven spoke a few words to the children, challeng- ing them to take the oath of fidelity as they were going to enlist in the army of Jesus Christ today, just as the soldiers of a country had to do before entering their military service. He aid, just as the soldiers have to promise that they faithfully will ad- here to the military laws and regula- tions of the army and never desert their commander, but firmly stand by the colors, even at war time when canons roar and rifle bullets of the enemy whistle through the air; in the Hopkins, and family.

STUTTGART Episcopal Visit and Confirmation Tile Episcopal visitation anti con- firmation has been the common topic of discussion among the little groups that gather about Holy Rosary 'church. Being aware of the fact that the Bishop was to motor through, the time of his arrival was doubtfuh How- ]ever, he had previously informed us that lie would arrive sometime abou', noon. He came shortly after 11 a. m. , and our hopes and joys were mingled into a most pleasant reality when His Lordship's car came into view. It was our pleasure to have the Bishop (line with us on Saturday noon. prior to his trip to Gillett, some forty I odd miles distant. After having con- firmed a class there, he returned to spend the night  in Stuttgart. Rev. Father Raymond Gomez, O. C. D., and two of the seminariaus, Rev. ]Francis T. Taulty and Mr. John Thompson, through the courtesy of Very Rev. W. H. Aretz. rector of St. John's seminary, journeye to Stutt- gart on Friday evening to assist at the ceremonies at Gillett as well as here. Long before the hour for last was read with great interest and pleasure by Father Fletcher's rela- tives and Mena friends.

Bigge-Molter Nuptials , On Tuesday morning at 8:30 o'c]ock a nuptial High Mass was celebrated by Very Rev. Dean Gallagher, fol- lowing the solemn ceremony which united Miss Victoria Bigge and Ray- nond Molter. two popular young peo- ple of St. Agnes' parish. The bride, who is the eldest (laughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ben Bigge, old residents of I Mena, was demurely girlish and pret- ty in a walldng length costume of ivory-wbite messaline, with coronet o orange blossoms and bridal veil. Her bouquet of pink and white, was com- posel of ferns, sweet peas and carna- l tions. Miss Frances Bigge, the bride's sister and only attendant, was attired fin rose crepe de chine, with flower of matching color in her hair. The groom's best man was Raymond Schneider. The stalwart groom is the I second son of Mr. and Mrs. J. D. Mol- 'ter, and has made many fri,nds dur- ing his several years residence here. Cupid apparently has a decided predi- lection for the Molter family, as Ray is the third of the Molter children to enter the marriedstate since Christ- mas. It is understood Mr. and Mrs. Ray Molter will make their borne on the Molter farm near Mena, and they start life's journey together, with the 'best wishes of all who know them. t Famous Food Sales I the Young Ladms Sodahty's food and handkerchief sale,  which was postponed a week on account of con- Rock was also given silk hose; Mrs. Misses Vera ahd Winifred Mont- Adolph Cange of St. Louis, silk lin-, gomery are planning to leave Mesa gerie.

After Mass the Bishop de]leered an appro- priate sermon. Confirmation followed shortly, and in turn also the Episcopal Visitation. The choir, true to its reputation, acquitted itself "in a praieworthy manner. The Confirmation class consisted of 17 boys, 15 girls and one adult: Bernard Joseph Berg, John Backley, Cyril Catliott, William Calliott, Hen- vy Bernard Hageman, Joseph Fisher.

Our greatest regret is the lengthy intervals between Episcopal Visita- tions, and our one great desire is that future years may conveniently ar- range frequent visits of His Lordshi:t to Riceland. We sincerely hope and pray that Our Dear Lord will grant His Lord- ship many more fruitful and happy years m our diocese.
