John E. Steinmueller, the renown scripturist, had come to visit with the American hero of two wars, whose unswerving faith in the scriptures has become household knowledge throughout the free world. "Rick" as he has been affec- tionately called, for the past 25 years, is a tall, strong, lithe look- ing man with deep set eyes and quiet mein. His face though deep- ly etched, smiles easily and he shows little of the conflagration his body suffered for 21 days. The two discussed religion in American war camps and the ef- fect Chaplains and the Bible have on free men fighting for their country. The flier showed the priest a St. Christopher medal he has carried since the last war. Dampness and the Pacific salt air had decomposed the leather case he carried it in. Father Steinmueller, priest, doc- tor and professor had two books he was presenting Capt. Eddie. As a member of the Catholic Biblical Association board of re- visers and editors he had con- tributed to both. One was the re- vised New Testament and the companion volume, A Commen- tary On The New Testament. The Captain accepted them with thanks. "Please extend my best wishes to your associates", he said, "Tell them, I have seen the desire for spiritual aid our fighting men have, and the scriptures have comforted them no little." The priest left to return to his Seminary, the Captain, to fly "somewhere". But always, St. Christopher goes with him. ance today. "The salvation of all nations, the care of which we have received from the Prince of Pas- tors and the Bishops of our souls, urges us to be ever watchful that we leave no means untried by which, from the rising of the sun to its going down, the name of the Lord may be glorified and the most holy Catholic faith, without which it is impossible to please God, may flourish and shine hroughout the world." Did You Know That the world's greatest cham- pion against heresy, St. August- ine of Hippo, was born in North Africa, which in the fourth and fifth centuries was one of the most flourishing centers of Ca- tholicity in the then known world?

NOT AFRAID TO PRAY The hooded, white cloaked ter- ror of the Sahara," writes Father Stanley Jarecki, S.V.D., "is a saint in his own eyes. The Mussulman a fanatic follower of Mohammed, gets to heaven over the bloody corpses of his Christian enemies. The more Christians a Mussul- man can kill, the higher will be his place in heaven. He preaches his 'gospel' with fire and sword and today the closest rival to the Catholic missionary ls the follower of the Prophet Mohammed."

NCCS Operating 3 Clubs For Women In Armed Services Washington. '(E)--"Trade Winds" house in Key West, Fla., recently the setting for the motion picture "Reap the Wild Wind" is now a USO residence club operated by the National Catholic Community Service. At the dedication cere- monies Miss Anne Sarachon Hooley, Assistant Director of the NCCS, was the principal speaker. Miss Hooley explained the ser- vices of USO and emphasized !particularly the role of women in war production and those related occupations where women and girls are releasing men for the armed forces by replacing them in civilian jobs. She told of NCCS service to the WAACs, WAVEs, SPARs, and women of the Marine Corps, military wives and families, and the thousands of relatives and friends of service men who seek shelter and recrea- tion while visiting men in the armed forces. Miss Hooley also presided at the formal opening ceremonies of the Daytona Beach club where a large contingent of WAACs are sta- tioned. The Daytona Beach club is the third NCCS operation which has been opened for wo- men in the armed forces. In Des Moines, Ia., another USO club held its formal opening. Miss Helen Hallinan represents the NCCS at Des Moines. Formal opening of the club in Wahoo, Neb., was celebrated with an open house program, duping which war production workers and service men thronged the lounge, Jibrary and recreation rooms and enjoyed music and re- freshments. Miss Kathryn Guil- foyle, director in Wahoo, spoke at the opening ceremo0ies, and ex- plained the work of the USO in trying to give a temporary home to girls working in adjacent war roduction plants. BOB DASHIELL Druggist PHONE 422 CONWAY, ARKANSAS Timely Eternals Rt. Rev. Msgr. Peter M. H. Wynhoven Editor-in-Chief Catholic Action of the South THE CAUSE OF THE CAT Not all cats will tackle rats. Only an exceptional one does. Oh, yes; poor, little mice will get cornered, provided the cat is not a pet, well-fed and trained to be home at a decent hour. Mice may create a mild disturbance at night, and do a little damage, but they can esaily be got under control by traps. But, rats I They can almost ruin us by sleepless nights and prop- erty damage. And what are our cats doing about it In gen- eral, nothing at all. If only we could instill some Dutch courage into our feline friends, maybe they would go into action, proving themselves a blessing to poor, harassed humanity. A little mouse had been sipping the drippings from a wine barrel in the cellar. When, at last, it had enough, and was pretty well intoxicated, it jumped on top of the cask and boldly challenged: "Now, bring on that big tom- cat!" If it would not be too much trouble to pep up our cats that way every night, we might soon get rid of the rats around the house. It seems ridiculous that a cat, five times the size of a rat, and better equipped for attack and fight, should steer clear of a rodent. This deplorable state of affairs plainly indicates that a cat is a coward. Of what earthly use or benefit is a pet cat? She is only an ob- ject of the misplaced and' wasted affection of weak-minded people. Does she give anything in return? Not a bit. She will selfishly purr and rub against one for con- tinued scratching and stroking of her back. Is there any personal loyalty in a cat? She may be carried away for miles, and left: with other kind people, but she will return, most likely, to the old home; and, if her former friends are not there she will not miss them, but will stay around just the same. A dog will follow you anywhere you go, will do things to express appreciation, will keep watch at night to safeguard your home, will protect your life at the risk of his own. But a catl Lazily sleeping, she would not give the alarm if the house Was on fire at night, or if a burglar was trying to get in. She has to be watched when the table is being set for a meal; she can't be left alone in the same room with the canary. She is dangerous for children to play with, ahd she is a first-class disease carrier. Why all this literary venom against poor cats? you may ask. For no particular reason, except that we received through the mail a large, buling envelope appris- ing us of the existence of a thriv- ing national Feline Society. The organization, seizing this particu- lar time, when hundreds of thou- sands of humans are in mortal despair, brings to the world's at- tention, in voluminous and plead- ing language, the distressing plight of cats during war. We all have read about some neurotic women leaving estates to finance measures for the wel- fare of cats, bequeathing small for- tunes for cat hospitals, and setting aside an endowment for the found- ing and maintenance of cat ceme- taries; but that this animal fanati- cism should become national, is l something to worry about nation- ally. These cat lovers propose to build safety camps for cats, away from the danger zones, and in- augurate other measures for feline protection. Membership fees range downward from $50 to $3 an- nually. The whole fantastic scheme reminds us of a drunken soldier who was riding with someone in an automobile ahead of us. The car in which he was a passenger was stopped in the free lane while the red traffic light was on. The driver and the drunk saw the stop light, and obeyed it, but they did not read the sign underneath, which said, "Turn left on red light." So, the man behind their car, wanting to make the left turn, nervously blew his horn for them to move out of the way. This disturbance was too much for our country's defender. He got out, tied up the whole street- full of traffic, and told the men, in unmistakable terms, how wrong he was, and where to get off. He compltted his oration with a solar )lexus in the mule-driver vernac- ular: "It's the likes of you that will make us lose this blankety- blank war yet." That's what we feel like saying to those soft-brained people who lose their soul, waste their time and money, overlook and shove aside God's laws and the nation's welfare, in worrying about cats, when thousands of children in our own country should be thought of and preparations made for their protection. If this mental disease should spread, the in- ebriated soldier could be right. In these critical days, we have to concentrate all our thoughts, saree- GREESON DRUG COMPANY J. A.

Australian Bishop Urges Self-Denial In Crisis Melbourne, Australia. {I0 Re- sponding to an appeal made by the Commonwealth Government in connection with the Australian Liberty Loan Drive that the churches dedicate one Sunday to the inculcation of national self- denial, the Most Rev, John Mc- Carthy, Bishop of Sandhurst, stressed the duty of living in a spirit of self-sacrifice in accor- dance with Divine precept and example. "We are willingly making great sacrifices because we are con- vinced our cause is just and well worth our sacrifices," Bishop Mc- Carty said. "But sacrifice is a farce, if Christian priniciples are openly neglected or violated. It is therefore with regret that we view any evidence of moral lax- ity."
