With engine racing and hand twitching on the gear-shift, they can hardly wait until the traffic light changes from red to yellow. Probably they do not know that in three racing starts they can waste enough gasoline to carry them a mile. The same type of motorist has a habit of coming up to the light at high speed, depending on quick application of the brakes to stop in time. He figures that if the signal light doesn't change he will be able to rush on and "beat the light." He does not figure, of course, that these sudden stops are wear- ing his brakes out rapidly, and soon they will need relining. Most important of all, however neither of these hair-brained driv- ers has considered the chances of an accident in these reckless ma- neuvers. They probably would scoff at the idea that possibility of an accident is increased at all. But common sense tells us that the hazards they run and the haz- ards they create are many times those of the driver who seeks to "play safe" at each street intersec- tion.

CAMP LIFE AT MORRIS The pictures shown here were taken last summer at Morris Camp. Brother Andrew of Morris School announces preparations for a greater attendance of campers over last summer. Scouts on Hike Searcy, Ark. -- Announcement has been made by Brother An- drew at Morris School that prep- arations are under way for the largest attendance ever registered at Morris Summer Camp for Boys. Throughout the greater part of the summer months of last year the maximum number of camp- ers able to be cared for by the school were registered. This year Brother Andrew announces that extensive preparations have been made to accomodate a greater number of boys seeking the happy atmosphere of real camp life un- der the supervision of the Francis- can Brothers. I The same staff of men who so successfully concluted the camp last year will be on hand to direct and supervise the actv4ty this year. The modern up-to-date build- ings, situated in the foot-hills of the Ozarks near Searcy, present an ideal spot for the work that the Brothers carry on each sum- mer for the benefit of Catholic Boys' Camp life. The Brothers are noted for their ability to train and inspire youth. Physical de- velopment has always been an outstanding trait of their schools. Good fellow-ship between the coaches and campers is most no- ticeable. Wholesome, well bal- aneed meals, the finest of drink- ing water are of first concern. Sleeping accommodations may be arranged out doors in airy tents or in a large dormitory. Last but not least, the Morris Camp boys are near the influence of the Church and school and the "habits of discipline and of order incul- cated during the year are streng- thened and inspired in the pleasant and happy program of camp life. Because of the large numbers anticipated for the coming sum- mer months, all boys are urged to confer with Brother Andrew early in order to insure camp ac- commodations. Pine Bluff Unit Of N. C. C. W.

(N:).--The Tribunal of the Sacred Apostolic Penitentiary has issued a Decree wherein consideration is taken of the fact that some omission, most- lY involuntary, may occur in the conditions imposed in the erec- tion of the Stations of the Cross. These omissions, it is stated, might prevent the faithful from gaining the indulgences connected with this pious practice. The Pope, confirming indul- gences granted October 30, 1931, has decreed that, to render the erection of the Stations of the Cross valid, it is sufficient for the priest to be furnished with the required faculty, but that it is highly advisable that he should ask the consent of the Ordinary. The Franciscan Friars have this faculty of erecting the Stations as a privilege of their Order, but they cannot pass it on to others. The indulgences granted for the "Via Crucis" are: a plenary indul- gence every time the pious exer- cise is made: a plenary indulgence if on the day when the exercise is finished or within the space of a month during which it has been made ten times, the faithful approachHoly Communion; an in- dulgence of ten years and ten times forty days, for every station should the faithful have begun !the pious exercise and owing to some reasonable cause have had to interrupt it.

Bourque, Minister of Public Works, the various Provincial Government buildings here will be suitably decorated for the Na- tional Eucharistic Congress being held from June 22 to 26. Business Houses In Conway Close 3 Hours Good Friday Conway, Ark. -- Virtually 100 per cent of the mercantile estab- lishments and business houses of Conway were closed on Good Fri- day between the hours of 12 noon and 3 p. m., according to the an- nouncement of Mr. Ted Hiegel, who called on the greater part of them and said that the owners favored closing. Mayor B. G. Wilson issued a proclamation calling for the ob- servance. His proclamation read as follows: "In response to re- quests from both Protestant and Catholic denominations of Con- way, I hereby call upon all busi- ness houses in the City of Con- way to suspend business for three hours, from 12 noon until 3 p. m., on Good Friday, Apr-If 15."

Easter Observance Of Secular Paper Praised by Bishop Springfield, Ill., April 23. (E).-- Praise for the journalistic observ- ance of Eastm" on the part of the Illinois State Journal here has been voiced to the editor by the Most Rev. James A. Griffin, Bish- op of Springfield in Illinois. The secular newspaper devoted its whole front page on Easter Sunday to the Passion, Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ and presented their story in formal newspaper reportorial style as if the event had just happened and the reporter had witnessed the tragedy on Galgotha and the tri- umph at the tomb. Bishop Griffin invited he edi- tor to dinner on Easter Sunday and before a group of clergy said that "journalism of this type brings into the home a whole- some atmosphere and tends to ele- vate the minds of our people, especially the young, to a high spiritual plane." "This type of journalism is a power for good," he added. "There would be less crime in the land if we had more of this type of journalism in our daily press." In bold, broad headlines across its front page, the Journal an- nounced: "Jesus Crucified on Last Friday, Lives." In another head- line were the words: "Christ Dies on Golgotha Cross in Intense Pain."

His Eminence inspected all parts of the home, which is named after him out of gratitude for a gen- erous contribution toward the home's erection. Buried 19 Months Priest Is Saved By Nationalists Zaragoza. (E).A young priest of Oliete, near Teruel, literally released by Nationalist soldiers from his tomb, were he had re- mained "buried" for 19 months, had the appearance of a specter a soiled specter with long beard and was almost blind and para- lyzed from remaining so long in his narrow tomb. There were three priests in 0li- ete. Two were killed by the Reds but the third, a very young mart who lived with his parents succeeded in escaping to the mountains. For days he was pur- sued like an animal and scarcely had chance to sleep or eat. Final- ly, famished and half sick, he re- turned to his home and told his parents he intended to remain there and await what fate God might have in store for him. The parents conceived a strange plan to save their son. Working fur- iously throughout the night they built a false wall of stone and plaster which formed with the original walls of the house a cavity in which a marx could lie dowm. There they "buried" their son, and for 19 months fed him through an inconspicuous opening in the wall. The Reds searched the house, threatened and did arrest the fa- ther, whom they later released, but they did not discover the false wall. Nationalist troops, directed to the spot by the father, tore down the wall. After a bath and a shave and some exercise the priest seem- ed little the worse for his unusual confinement. He celebrated Mass in his garden because the churches of Oliete are in ruins.

The resolution de- clared: "We believe it Is absolutely es-' sential to the perpetuity of our free institutions and the mainten- ance of the Bill of Rights that the separation between Church and State be preserved as a basic tenet of our national life, both in theory and in practice, and we emphatic- ally assert that the bestowal of Federal moneys on church-con- trolled schools would be a viola- tion of the spirit of our national Constitution."
