Reynolds How did your council function during tim last twelve months? Was it activG alert and progressive, and if so, can you personally feel proud for hawng contributed your share towards its success? Or did it just exist and struggle along for its very life, and were you partly responsible for its irmctive and apathetic condition? Well, we have come to a time in the year when the remedy should be applied, but first we shocdd know what remedy to apply and where to apply it. Did your council lack leadership, was the year's work planned, was a good example set by the if!leers that might inspire the membership to full cooperation with the activities outlined by the committees? If not, you should at least know where to apply the remedy, and the election night is the opportune time. On the other hand, did you pay your dues and assessments on time. attend meet- ings, take part in discussions, and fall in line with the conclu- sions of the majority, willingly serve on committees, and feel protid and glad that you were a Knight. Did you try to interest others in the order and its op- portunities? If you did not, then you should know best where to apply the remedy. If you do de- cide some reforming is necessary and would be beneficial to your council, be sure to analyze care- fully the Whole situation to see whether it's you, or the others that need releasing, Your Grand Kight is the chief executive and directing spirit of your council. The one of high trust with grave moral and material responsibilities. He should have ability to promote and sustain united action in charity and fraternity, and be ever ac- tive in the cause of God, our Holy Religion, and the order. Make that thought the stand- ard of your selection and try to feel that your help and continued support is necessary for even the strongest of men to reach the full- ness of success.

The Catholic Press is an in- tegral of the Kingdom of God .on Earth," Bishop Cannon declared'. "Its only purpose is the propaga- tion of our Holy Faith. The Ca- tholic Press, we must remember is an instrument in the hand of the Magisterium of the Church the Catholic HierarchY,.
