Texarkana Family Features Unique Event at the Altar Rail in St. Ed- ward's Church. St. Edward's parish, Texarkana, Ark., has reason to boast of its Ca(h: olicity along many angles of activity, and has given recent proof of its spir- it and generosity in the completion of its splendid parish plant, but last Sun- day morning it was witness of an event seldom, if ever, duplicated in an Arkansas parish, and we may go fur- ther and seek it in most any parish of the country. Nine members of one family, at the same Mass, approach- ing the sanctuary and at the rail re- ceiving Hply Communion. Unique and unusual and well be- speaks the Staunch and healthy faith and practices of the family of Mr. and Mrs. T. J. Galvin, who, with th sir seven children, gave to the community such an edifying example on last Sun- day. TE0000%RK00INA Solemn First Communion A large congregation witnessed cer- emonies of unusual beauty and im- pressiveness last Sunday morning when a class of Providence Academy pupils received First Solemn Commu- nion from the hands of the devoted pastor, Reverend Doctor, Clarendon, the celebrant of the Klgh Mass. The inspiring music of the splendid new pipe organ announced the ap- proach of the ProCessional; sixteen altar bpys, in rich cream serge cas- socks finished in crimson and gold, ten young girls robed in pure white, with long flowing veils and wreaths of lovely white blossoms, six of whom were lily bearers, and each of these six carried a single lily, emblem of purity; the other four were taper hearers, each of whom carried a taper, symbolic of faith; then came the com- municants, themselves, followed by the cebrant of the Mass, just after the priest entered the sanctuary, the Mass was celebrated and the able ad-. ult choir did justice to the occasion. Before the communion Doctor Clar- endon addressed the communicants in sweet and tender words that touched the hearts of the little ones and en- abled them to realize more fully the great privilege that was so soon to be theirs, that of receiving and enter: raining their God in their young hearts. Impressive Ceremony But how shall we describe the com- munion itself or the unique way that the ceremonies were carried out ? The sanctuary beautified with potted plants and baskets of roses, the al- tars all aglow with lights and flow- ers, the white robed lily bearers on e{ther siffe, the celebrant in rich vest- rnents holding the golden chalice that contained the Bread of Life, the altar boys holding the communion cloth, while the little girls, with lighted ta- pers in hand, led the communicants to and from the altar. Indeed, it was an impressive sight. Then when the communicants had returned to their respective places the lily bearers, ta- per bearers and altar boys received communion in the sanctuary and the Knights of Columbus in'a body came forward to the marble altar rail where they, too, received the sacred Hos" After the mass the pastor recited the usual prayere with the communion Morrilton was represented by Rev. Father Goeble, Ml:. Will Drilling, Mr. Henry Drilling, Mr. Alex Welter and Mr. John Kordmeyer. BALD KNOB Better RoadsNew Oepot The local Chamber of Commerce has billed the town for the Lone Star Route good roads party that will be in Bald Knob and other White Coun- ty towns this week. The citizens of White County are anxious to have this route completed as they realize that a good road bearing a leavy tourist traffic is the best advertisement any county can have and as the White County section of the route is al- ready constructed and in use all are strong for the filling in of the re- maining gap. Quite a party if people interested in better roads is expected here Tues- day and an effort will be made to have a good turnout to welcome them. Information has been received here that the new Mssouri Pacific depot will be in the course of construction by June 15, 1923. The citizens who in- terested themselves in this depot matter about three years ago are to be commended for their persistence in the matter, as the state railroad com- mission was not inclined to order the depot built during the period of defla- tion and stress under which all busi- ness suffered, the blue prints and specifications show that the town wil/ be rewarded with the building of the best station house between Little Rock and Poplar Bluff. According to present plans the new station will be erected west of the present one, close to the junction of the Memphis branch and main line to St. Louis, thus placing the new church, Our Lady Queen of Peace within three blocks of the traffic cen- ter and travel convenience. The heavy rains of this week put a crimp in the strawberry shipments, and will take from 1923 its record as the banner year. The activities of some of the radical fraternities have kept hundreds of pickers from the local field, ,espite the increased prices offered by the berry marketers. PINE BLUFF Talk on Edueaton In the Pine Bluff notes last week which gave an eount of the  enter- tainment and luncheon, given by the Juniors and Sophomores to the five graduates Of Annunciation Academy, the writer neglected to mention the talk Father Tynin gave the young ladies. He stressed, in very choice language the 'importance of an edu- cation. The rich rewards of mental culture, he said, "enlarged and exalted the whole being; the, scope of view is widened; the objects of interest are increased; the subjects of thought are multiplied; life is more filled, with emotion, and the man is raised in the scale of creation. "By gaining a good education you shall have your reward in the rich stores of knowledge you have thus collected, and which shall ever be at your command, more valuable than earthly treasures, friends may forsake you, banks may fail, riches flee, health desert you, but the intellectual investments you ,have ramie thus will bepermanent and enduring. and the processional, this time A bank whose dividends are perpet- THE GUARDIAN, SATURDAY, MAY 19, 1923 ual, whose wealth is undiminished last Friday and was buried last Sat- however frequent the drafts upon it; i urday at Calvary cemeteiy; Rev.

Rehearsing Play un- The boarders of the Academy, der the able direction of the Sisters, I are rehearsing a play which they in- tend to present the th of June, the proceeds to be given to the new church fund. The title of the play, "By Way of the Secret Passage," sounds very mysterious, and interest- ing and we are sure a treat is in store for all those who attend. The dance, given by the l,ucey Bridge Club, Monday evening at the' Elks Club, was in every particular the greatest success of any ever be- fore attempted by the Catholic ladies. Though a terrible storm raged the en- tire evening the dancers danced mer- rily on to the strains of Phil Baxters' orchestra. Phil Baxter is the Prince of Jazzers, and his music never fails to draw a large crowd. While at this writing the tickets are not all in and it is impossible to give the exact amount realized, tle ladies are confi- (lent something over $300 will be hdd- ed to the organ fund, which is a won- derful sum, when the weather and other circumstances Were taken into consideration. Children of Mary The Children of Mary, a society composed of the young ladies and girls of the parish, met in the par- lors of the Academy Wednesday even- ing and elected officers for the en- suing year. Miss Rose Syvester, sits in the president's chair, while Miss Eugenia Minoret, acts as vice presi- dent, with Miss Ella May Hill treas- urer, and Lenore Cady secretary. The object of the society is to foster love for the Blessed Virgin and to build up the moral and religious spirit of the members. The meetings are always held in the Academy with the Sisters who direct and encourage the young people in every way possible. Statue of St. Vincent The Sisters of the Academy are re- joicing over a beautiful new statue ol St. Vincent, the patron saint of the Sisters of Charity. Sister Emeren- ture presented the gift, and it was placdd in the convent Chapel. This will be Sister's last gift to her co-workers. as she expects to leave Pine Bluff in June for her okt home in Yazoo City, I Miss., and will not return to Pine J Bluff. The congregation and friends of all creeds and no creed, will be sorry to see her go. She has been the center of all school activity for six years; she is truly a mother to the sisters and her intimate friends, all who know Sister Emerenture love her and her place will be hard to fill.

INTERESTING NOTES OF VATICAN VISIT OF KING ANi00QUEEN (N. C. W. C. Special Cable) Rome, May 14.King George and Queen Mary, of England, were for- merly received by Pope Plus XI Wed- nesday. The full royal ceremomc. prescribed for the visits of reigning soverigns of the court of the Vatican were carried out with all solemnity in connection with the visit. The ac- tion of the English soverigns was tag- en in the face of bitter critism on the part of a small Protestant faction in England. Pope's Greeting. The Pope himself greeted the King. and Queen at the entrance to the throne room, where the audience was held; and in accordance with the wish of His Holiness, the customary cere- monial kissing of the ring on presen- tation was dispensed with. Instead the pope shook hands with the visiting soverigns. At the end of the twenty- minutes private conversation,the doors were openedl and the members of the His Holiness. Unusual Scene. During their conversation, the pope visiting royal suits were presented to and the British rulers sat in chairs, arranged in a semi-circle under a canopy, the pope in the center, and the king and queen on either side. Then conversation was described as very cordial In place of the usual exchange of gifts on such occasions, the pope and the king and queen exangc.-. autographed photographs Those pre- sented by the pope were two splendid minitures in silver frames, with gold monograms. On returning the king and queen were greeted by the Canadian bishops of Nicholet and Victoria, the English Bishop Stanley, and the rectors of the English, Scotch, Canadian colleges. Boquet to Queen When they left the Vatican, they were accorded the same military hon- ors they received on entering. Near the entrance to the Vatican, a delega- tion, representing "he alumni of the English college offered the queen a bouquet of roses. Royalty Sight-Seeing. After luncheon the British rulers re- turned to St. Peter Balisilict, where they were received by Cardinal Merry del Val and representatives of the Vatican Chapter.
