THE GUARDIAN, MAY I 5, 1942 PAGE gEMF.2q |us C. Y. O. Sponsors Parish nor Roll of Service Men ,ltusThe Catholic Youth club of St. Mary's, Help of ass, has sponsored the mounting of the parish honor :men in the service, and this honor roll is placed at the [ the Church that all might see it as they enter, and pray tese Young men. Ahus parishioners serving in the armed forces I r ation are: Lawrence Borengasser, Rupert Buergler, EVans, Bernard Kramer, James Kukar, Lawrence Rinke, , Matt Risse, Frank Snider, Joseph White, Mich- 1 ael White, Otto Hilz, John Rai- A]hl /b]e, Andrew Joerger, Robert --.-s Pastor [Metz, William Joerger, Lawrence Risse, Lawrence Strempel, William Wyrick, Dr. Cyril Post and Joseph Dahlem. These young men are the pri- mary concern of the Altus par- ishioners, who overlook such in- conveniences as tire and sugar rationing. The photos and mounting of honor roll was under the direction of George Post, president of the C.Y.O. and Hermina Hoffman, secretary. Altus--At the monthly meeting of the Junior Study clubs vital problems of youth are discussed. Frequently religious questions proposed to some member in daily contact, wiaieh kept him fumbling for an answer, are solved. While these meetings are conducted in a rather informal way, the study club members, incidentally, have he advantage of getting at least an elbow acquaintance with par- liamentary rules. All other wisdom compared with the wisdom of the Blessed Virgin Kehres, O.S.B. is as far from true wisdom, as our laills are from the eternal hills JACK PITTS i General Merchandise /i i Altus, Ark. iJi/ J.

BIES Editor-in-Chief, Catholic Action of the South LITTLE PITCHERS WITH BIG EARS The young family was over for dinner. Patricia, the six- and-a-half-year-old pride of the young parents, had to eat in the kitchen. While serving, Robert the butler spilled a cup of coffee. Commented the young one to the cook: "Ain't he d-- clumsy, Lense" Lena inhaled a big mouthful of air, and breathed in consternation, "Baby-honeyl If your mamma heard you say that l" "That's right," replied the baby-honey, "I'd sure catch __" The "horrible" incident was properly and diplomatically re- ported to the mater. It upset her so much that, in her distress, she mentioned it to the diners in the talker who, at times, will em- phasize his arguments with a mule driver's oratorical punch.

Since the distracted mother was honestly looking for an explana- tion, ors reason, for her child's transgression, a close friend of the family came gallantly to the rescue by simply pointing at the father of the youngster. Paul, the papa, happens to be a voluble St. Mary's Boasts Active Parish 0rBanizati0ns Altus--Clubs of St. Mary's par- ish, Altus, are active, alert organi- zations dealing with every phase of parish life. The C. Y. O., including the study club, take care of social and study problems of the young people of the parish. The Christian Mothers society is always on the alert for the needs of the sanctuary and' works of charity. Lately it has ordered several hundred copies of the booklet, "Guide Right", to be sent to Camp Chaffer. The society is permanent, can be formed by what little ears heard during unguarded talks and exchanges of views on the part of elders. The children's sense of essential authority, their respect for it, often is crippled this way. Parents al- ways stmuld be mindful never to criticize, within hearing of their children, superiors of those whose duty it is to enforce obedience, law or order, be it the teacher, the minister, the priest or the police- man. No matter how unreason- able or unfair the parents private- ly may. think these authorities are, absolutely nothing is gained by expressing an opinion in the presence of their children. On the contrary, harm is done, for ti]ereby we definitely encourage the out- standing wrong of the nation to- day, which is lack of respect for high office, a sadly prevalent na- tional attitude which yet nay be the breakdown of this country. The president 0f the United I States occupies the highest, the I most important, the most vital[ position that any citizen can be[ placed in. If our children do not revere the occupant of that high national station, they will not and t cannot respect the office. In their tender years, they are unable to differentiate between office and person. Once their youthful con- ception of high position is done violence to, or perhaps destroyed, by their parents' denunciations, something very essential in their moral training is crippled or frus- trated. Respect for authority, is an essential in a child's growing years. This should even be re- membered as it regards the obedi- ence which is due to a Colored nursemaid. The berating of politicians, how- over much they may deserve it, can bring no good to your children; neither can discussions and specu- lations on the ways of the crooked, crazy world today ever benefit your youngsters in the least. When they are old enough to be warned definitely, that is the time to talk to them. Don't give them the im- .rcssion, by loose conversation, that the world is so tricky and false that one has to become tricky and false in order to cope with the situation. Make it a studied point always to uphold and praise in their pres- ence men and' women who do noble deeds. Comment approving- ly on movements and happenings that redound to the welfare of the community or the country in a constructive way. You may be sure that, the way things go these days, your children outside the home, church and school will not be exposed very often to edifica- tion and the realization that the SEAMAN STORE COMPANY GENERAL MERCHANDISE AT LOWER PRICES ALTUS, ARKANSAS Ilmprovement [On St. Mary's affiliated with the C.W.U,A. 0000e=reme'er--"o'e'l00. t t a officers for the current year are: Mrs. Win.

Abbey Choir Sings For Camp Chaffee Mother's Day Mass Subiaco--The abbey choir of New Subiaco sang the music for a Solemn High Mass at Camp Chaffer near Fort Smith Sunday when the camp gave a special Mother's Day program. The Roy. Ambrose Branz was director of the choir. Other Subiaco priests taking prt were the Very Roy. Ignatius Bodmayr and the Rev. Damian Wewers. About 25 choir members sang the Mass parts in the liturgical plain chant. Frater Gerald Sacra and Frater Lambert Eckelhoff were chanters. After the service the choir members were conducted through the camp and were shown the tanks and other equipment of the Sixth Armored Division stationed there. Their host was Major John T. Kilcoyne, Catholic chaplain. Father Kilcoyne is head of all chaplains stationed at Camp Chaffer. There are four ott3er Catholic chaplains there among about fourteen chap- lains in all. The camp is said to cardinal virtues are still the foundation of a truly successful and happy life. The principles l of truth, honesty and purity have to be inculcated primarily by parents. Therefore, parents should never be heard to approve or admire artful deceit or to condone anything that is morally wrong, no matter how clever and tricky it is, or because a so-called big or famous person was guilty of it. Don't expect your child to de- velop a deep sense of honesty if he hears his father brag to his mother about being smart enough to fix the income-tax report so as to avoid paying the government all that was due. Watch your words at all times in the presence of your children. The right kind of conversation will tend to lay the foundation of lofty and re- freshing ideals. Altus---St. Mary's cemetery has been greatly improved recently. The graves have been levelled, and the bodies of dead now rest beneath a mat of green that is kept in trim with the aid of a power lawn mower. In the course of time some graves have lost their markers. With the aid of older members of the parish an effort will be made to identify these graves and' to prepare a complete map of the cemetery before it is too late. The work has progressed rapidly under the direction of the Roy. Gregory Kehres, O.S.B., past- or. Church wardens are: Edward Sax, Joseph Eveld, Joseph Sax and Alfred Dahlem.
