PAGE TWO THE GUARDIAN, MAY 13, 1938 First State B. V. M. Sodality Convention a Great Event at Fort Sm' Sodalists Congratulated By His Excellency C/il ii ii St. Anne's and St. Scholastica's Academies Host to Sodalists of State-Convention Headquarters at-lmmaculate Conception Fort Smith.--(Special).--Suecess marked every step of the student sodality State rally held in Fort Smith last week, May 6, 7 and 8. Climaxing the interest and enthusiasm of the conven- tion was the congratulatory message from His Excellency, the Most Reverend Bishop, in which he assured the Sodalists of his blessing and interest in the work that they are doing. "I am sure," the Bishop said, "that this event is an inspiration to all participants and will be of immense value to them per- sonally and to the Church in general." At the inception of this rally, the first of its kind in the State, it was rather dubious as to a successful outcome, but the idea being seriously considered, arrangements carefully planned, and backed by encouragement and cooperation, the initiator of the movement, the Rev. Stephen Jacklin, chaplain of St. Scholastica's Academy, with the smooth technique of leadersliip, carried the undertaking to a decidedly triumphant finish. Under his direction the sodallsts of St. Anne's and St. Scholastica's Academies sponsored the rally and the several committees were selected from among the pupils who generously gave their services in the cause. Out-f-town delegates began arriving on Thursday afternoon registration was at the library of the Immaculate Conception school from where the housing and transportation committees conveyed the visitors to the several homes in Fort Smith whose owners had Rutt Eddy presided at the organ. The work, proper to the rally, kindly offered hospitality for so- dalists attending the rally.

(E).The Catholic Ac- tion Club of Cathedral High schooI in Duluth, Minn. did its share to counteract any false propaganda on "May Day." Five hundred copies of The Catholic Worker, a monthly pub- lication, were purchased by the free will offerings of the student- body at the Christian Brothers school. Twelve members of the. Catholic Action Club volunteered to distribute these papers to bar- ber shops, railway and bus depots, hotel lobbies and to various mem- bers of labor unions on parade that day. Many pet"sons were anx- ious to get holdzqf, ny kind of paper, since workers on the local daily papers are on strike. The few Catholics who were contact- ed in this distribution expressed delight at this project, and de- manded more copies of the Cath- olic Worker. Veteran New Orleans Pastor Dies New Orleans.

DALY'S Monumental Workl Established 1821 Fentress Mortuary Novel Is Barred From Shelves Of Public Library Subiaco Study Club Has Meeting, May 4 Subiaco. -- The Little Study Club held its weeklY ing at the St. Benedict's I fed by the City Librarian, the De- troit Council of Catholic Organi- zations has succeeded in having removed from the shelves of the Detroit Public Library Ernest Hemingway's book "To Have and to Have Not." The book was or- dered removed by the Prosecut- ing Attorney,'who threatened legal action against the library officials, and who also ordered the book barred from sale and from cir- culating libraries. Arthur D. Maguh'e, chairman of the board of directors of the De- troit Council of Catholic Organiza- tions, wrote to Librarian Adam Strohm, protesting against a book o this character being offered for circulation by an institution supported by the taxpayers of De- troit "and which is not even limit- ed to adults but may be obtained by high school boys and girls." "I have read the book and failed to see one redeeming feature that justifies its publication or circula- tion," Mr. Maguire said "It is ut- terly filthy from beginning to end." Mr. Maguire called atten- tion to the campaign being waged not only here but throughout the United States against salacious reading matter, and asked "what is the sense of stopping the sale of this kind of filth at the news- stands if the youth of the coun- try can obtain books that are even worse than some of these maga- zines by simply going to the public library?" He also inquired if there is any defense to be made, and offered to debate with those re- sponsible for selecting the library's books. The Michigan Catholic vigorous- ly attacked the Librarian's atti- tude. The Detroit Council of Catholic Organizations complained to Judge Thomas M. Cotter of Recorder's Court. Judge Cotter examined passages from the books, and then I called in Prosecutor Duncan C. McCrea, to whom he read pas- sages from the work. The Pro- secutor returned at once to his office, called in Librarian Strohm, and told him that if the book was not removed from the shelves of the Detroit Public Library he would prosecute the Librarian and the Library Commission.
