P. lynolds The mere announcement by the committee in charge of the Bishop Morris' Golden Jubilee Seminary Campaign, should be a clarion call to the ears of the Knights of Columbus of Arkansas to rally to the support of their respective pastors, fully determined to make this drive for a suitable endowment of St. John's Seminary, a complete Success. This is an opportunity to show our understanding of the true meaning of knighthood, and the obligations that go with this honored title. Willingness to sacrifice for the attainment of so worthy an objective, as well as an earnest endeavor to pay a well earned tribute %o our Most Reverend spiritual leader, should characterize our work in this undertaking. Bishop Mot- ris has been the shepherd of our- flock for many years; a holy and a worthy successor of the apostles, who were commissioned by Our Lord Himself to feed his sheep, and seek out others who were not ,of that fold. How incessantly he labored, and how earnestly he must have prayed, that he might fulfill that Divine Commission, is conspiciously attested by the num- ber of religious, charitable and educational institutions made pos- sible through his efforts, and none more dear to his Heart than St. John's Seminary. What a vast and fertile mission- ary field our state is. In its far flung and thinly populated dis- tricts, how little,  if anything is known of the Church. Ignorance CARDINAL (Continued from page 1) and become tools for the ambitions of the lords of the world. "Be true to God. "Give Him back the choice gift that He has given to youthe simple, clean, trustful heart, the suppleness of your very bodies, that grace and poise of" frame which betoken the moiled of a soul swift, eager, adventurous and fresh. Even to your sport and re- creation you can add a spiritual and divine value by enjoying them in His sight and for His purpose. Be True To Homes "Give Him nowof your best. Give Him yourselves now, while you are young and fresh, before the faded grandeur of time's pas- sing show has had a chance to make you wearied and worn. of those doctrines and practices that are so consoling to us, often leads to suspicion and sometimes prejudice, in those parts where priests are seldom, and may be never seen, because there are not enough to go around. St. John's Seminary has played an important part in supplying missionaries to correct this ignorance and dispell this prejudice. Yet there remains much work to be done, and many more laborers are needed to do. As knights, let us do our part, to help endow our seminary with suf- ficient funds to educate worthy men that this missionary work may go on, and grow in extent un- til every village may have a Cath- olic Church, and every man an opportunity to hear the word of God. Youth, God's best gift to man must be our best gift to Him. "Be true to your homes. "Here, in the family, is your first and proper place. Here are your first right and duties to your fellow-men: your rights and duties to your parents and to your brothers and sisters--and these no clever outside cranks, no offici- aldom must be allowed to usurp. "And this brings me to the ques- tion: Where are the youth of our l land? "There can be no Youth Move- ment unless there are youths to move. ,,Certain dangerous folk advo- churches at Crawfordsville and }tughes. Honored with Father Janesko were his parents, Mr. and Mrs. John F. Janesko of Slovak who came to West Memphis for the anniversary party. A buffet supper was served and games of tennis, ping pong and shuffleboard were played. Dramatic Pupils Of St. Anne's In Recital Fort SmithOn Sunday eve- ning in the auditorium of St. Edward's nurses' home two dra- matic students, St. Anne's Acad- emy, '42 class, were presented in costume recital. The performers, Stella Miller and Sidola Shader gave two one-act llays, "The Sign of the Cleft Heart" and "Square Pegs;" a cut from "The Spanish Gipsy," poem and dance; and each a solo, humorous reading, "Dress Rehearsal" and "I Can't Make Up My Mind." Assisting the girls were two boy singers: from the music department; Char- I les Miller who sang "Our Father" and "Till the Lights of London Shine Again." Joe Bob Hartmeir was heard in "Song of the Vaga- bond" and The Green Cathedral." Irene Fioroni was pianist and Bet- ty Kershaw, violinist. to add to the strength of the nation. A brave, sturdy race is not bred by mechanical devices, but by a sound, healthy family life. Only the generous will that. controls selfishness by sacrifice can give us the youth of which heroes are made. "What a tragedy if at a not distant date there are not enough young people to fill our splendid schools! "The best Youth Movement, the best education of youth, is that which naturally takes place in the family where there are plenty of brothers and sisters. Listen to St. John "So let us listen to St. John rather than to such apostles of pleasure as may preach easy-going methods of duty of evading duty to God, to the family, and to the I country. You young people are strong, declares St. John, because you love not the world nor the things of the world. By 'the world' he means those evil in- fluences which are exerted upon souls by persons, systems, or foul literature, in order to make them shirk their duty and desert Christ Who is the Way, the Truth and the Life. "You must be strong and oppose the anti-Christian forces which are even now at work in prepar- ation for the final struggle of all that is evil against all that is good. "That is why St. John warns his young readers that, thought Anti- Christ comes at the end of the world, there are many Anti-Christs even now. I "In the present world conflict the forerunners of Anti-Christ are: stirring up unregulated. 'passion the threefold councupiscence of pride, lust, and greedin Order to gain for themselves mastery over mankind. These are the in-' ward impulses that youth must be strong to resist. Do not betray the citadel of your soul to the enemy. Chance for Sacrifice "I know how many of you in these testing times are proving yourselves ready to give up every- thing, to sacrifice even life it- self, in order to serve your coun- try, to aid the victims of war, to relieve distress, to tend the sick and wounded, to defend the op- pressed. War is a hideous thing; yet out of this evil comes this much good--that it gives a chance to many to show of what heroic self-sacrifice they are capable. "Against you are arrayed the youth of certain lands where other ideals are set before them; where liberty is stifled; were the hearts and souls and bodies of youth are drilled for 'conquest and bloody energy,' as one of their leaders has publicly acknowledged. "Christian youth is trained in a different school; Christian youth is [ormed for a higher purpose: for a spiritual conquest, for the found- ation of a new order wherein the peace of Christ shall prevail over the mechanised tyranny of force. "Yet from those who are massed against us you may learn the lesson of enthusiasm and thorough- ness. "These qualities they are driven to display in support of a system of violence and hate. You will display them for the love of Christ and in the service of a just cause." : "re Read Prlze-Winning Eay On Network Radio Program Chicago  A Chicago Catholic high school girl will read' in a radio program over the Red Network of the National Broadcasting Com- pany, the essay which won her first prize in a contest sponsored by De Peul University here.
