Pictured here are Fort Smith Knights of Columbus, council 996, on the occasion of the initiation of a large class on Sunday, May 17. The major degree was in charge of a team from Council 812, Little Rock. The first and second degrees were handled by the local council with Will D. O'Shea as acting grand knight, Gus Krone as acting deputy grand knight, Noah Sharum, st., as warden and Nick Huson, as financial secretary. Regular officers for council are are follows: Gus Krone, grand knight; Charles Sengel, financial secretary; M. L. Reilly, treasurer; Leo A. Burns, jr., recorder; the Rev. Paul F. Desmond', chaplain. Since 12 candidates were unable to attend this initiation another class will be inducted in the near future. Council 996 has changed its meeting night from the 2nd to the 4thThursday to the 1st and 3rd Sunday afternoons of each month for the duration. Visiting brothers in the armed service are always welcome. A regular meeting will be held on Sunday, June 7th at 2 p. m. for the nomination of officers for the year 1942- 1943. i Chapel. At the feet of that great Pontiff of the First World War he responded "I will' to these and other questiois in the solemn cere- mony of the consecration of a Bishop. The Silver Jubilee of his Epis- copal consecration is crowned by the perfection with which he has fulfilled those promises and reached the heights of the ideals described and exemplified by Augustine, Chrysostom and other great mitred saints of God. Hp.s Not Failed In Crisis As Papal Nuncio to Munich and Berlin at the close of the last war and as Papal Secretary of State during the world-wide up- heaval of the Pontificate of PLus XI, his rare talent, profound learn- ing and masterful diplomacy, which means sincerely striving to do right and to help others be right, attracted the admiration of all; but his Episcopal office, ful- filled with the tfullness of its dignity and gravity, overshadow- ed all human accomplishments. Elected Sovereign Pontiff by the College of Cardinals on his sixty- third birthday, March 2, 1939, he ascended the throne of Peter as the clouds of the present war were gathering over Europe. Any man sitting in the chair of St. Peter during those trying days would be listened to by the whole world because he would speak not in his own name but in the name of a tradition of nineteen hundred years' duration--a tradition which survived even worse crises than that which then hung over the earth. We all rejoiced and gave thanks to God, that in that grave hour He had seen fit to place in the august office of head of the Catholic Church a man whose natural qualities of mind and heart left nothing to be desired. He was hardly enthroned in his office when the terrible storm broke, and in the crisis that re- sulted Pope Plus XII found him- self, by the plan of God, in the most difficult position in a be- wildered world. He saw millions of his spiritual ohildren engaged in terrible conflict. He saw whole countries in bondage, whole popu- lations prostrated in agony and the entire world on the verge of chaos. In the midst of it all he was the Vicar of the Prince of Peace, the Sovereign Pontiff, the Supreme Bridge-Builder, spanning the seemingly hopeless distance between an agonizing world and man's ultimate goal, the Kingdom of Heaven. In all the long and varied history of the Church it was never more necessary that the one invested by God with sovereign power on earth should exercise it in a manner to cor- respond to the unlimited confi- dence that humanity reposed in him. His Holiness Pope Plus XII has not failed'. Hope of th World Tody All war in Europe, as Benedict XV insisted so ardently, is es- sentially a civil war, a "fratricidal strife" between those who are all children of their common Father in Heaven. The new Pope was to rpeat those words again and again as the present war devel- oped. He has seen the failure of Benedict's attempts at peace- making. In those critical weeks when war grew daily nearer, the Pope and his Secretary of State used every diplomatic channel which they had ever employed' in their long pre- vious training as ministers of re- conciliation. By radio, His Holi- ness issued a solemn appeal to all the world to assist in pre- venting the calamity that every people dreaded. In the last re- sort, when all appeals and diplo- matic approaches had failed, he intervened with his own proposals for a compromise concerning Po- land. But the die was already cast. Appeal to President Roosevelt To our own President the new Pope addressed his most fervent appeals for aid in leading the world back to peace. He could appeal to him in the terms of personal friendship formed dhring his visit to the United States. Pres- ident Roosevelt responded by appointing a personal envoy to the Holy See, so that their efforts War Pilot Visits Shrine of 'Good Ste. Anne" Ste. Anne de Beaupre, Que., {E)-- Pilot Officer Paul Emile Morin, French-Canadian who made 32 flights over enemy territory as a member of the Royal Canadian Air Force and won the Distinguished Flying Medal for his bravery, lost no time in visiting the internation- ally-known shrine of Ste. Anne de Beaupre on his return to Can- ada. Attributing his success to "Good Ste. Anne" he made a pilgrimage here with two friends as an ex- pression of thanks for the pro- tection which had been accorded him. Pilot Officer Morin said he never had been without a medal of Ste. .nne on all his flights. P.O. Morin once had planned to be- come a Christian Brother, and had taught with the Christian Broth- ers before the war, but decided the religious life was not to be his vocation. might be combined in direct and constant contact. Then to crystalize his efforts the Holy Father announced the prin- ciples which are indispensable to any hope of a just peace. He out- lined five necessary conditions for such a peace by insisting upon repudiation of force instead of right, by demanding disarmament, by pleading for international guar- antees against military aggression, and urging an unqualified accept- ance of the divine laws of justice charity. Tireless in Aid of War-Stricken As the war progressed, extend- ing its scope and its misery, the position of the Holy Father be- came more trying and yet the Christlike administrations of his supreme office have won more and more confidence as the far-flung battle lines of warfare were ex- tended. In all the occupied coun- tries His Holiness has maintained his personal representatives, re- fusing thereby to acknowledge might over right. The work of mercy that he has sponsored for prisoners, for the homeless and the starving is limited only by the means that are available. Countless innocent sufferers of the war have felt directly or in- directly the charitable administra- tions of his Pontificate. His voice has been constantly raised to give courage to the weak, hope to the despairing, and new life to the abandpned. In the first two years of his Pontificate he gave 84 addresses in Italian, 18 each in Latin and French, 16 in Spanish, 5 in German, 5 ih English and one in Portuguese. No racism there, save the most radical racism of all--that we are all one in Christ. Supreme Confidence in Him In the past, nations and men have been torn away from Christ and His Vicar, the Bishop of Rome, and have been drifting helpless- ly to their ruin on a sea of sub- versive thought and bloody strife. Pope Plus XII has utilized every possible means at his disposal to restore the world to Christ and Christ to the world. In return he+ has won the supreme confidence of stricken humanity, and on the occasion of the Silver Anniversary of his Episcopal Consecration we can best honor him by hoping and praying that the masses of the people and their leaders will translate this confidence into action and appeal to a leader who will give them peace not from steel but from the wood of the Cross. Look once again down the ages to that scene on the summit of a mountain when Christ, the Lord commissioned His first Bishops and their successors to perpetuate His Gospel. He foresaw on that solemn occasion all the dark shades and the bright lights of subsequent history. He foresaw all the eras of sorrow and all the periods of joy that His Spouse the Church would suffer or enjoy. Surely He must have seen most vividly our day with all its sufferings, strife, sorrow and scourges. Bomb Strikes Mission Home In Burma Washington (E)--In the Bombing of Akyab, Burma, the Japanese made a direct hit on the residence of the Rt- Rev. Msgr. Thomas A. Newman, American Prefect Apos- tolic of Akyab, according to re- ports reaching The Bengalese, of- ficial publication of the Holy Cross Foreign Mission Society here. Monsignor Newman is a mem- ber'of the La Salette Missionaries of Blommfield, Conn. He and his fellow La Salette missionary, Father Reilly, spent three hours in a trench. The Sisters of Our Lady of the Missions and their pupils were in treaches for three hours during the bombardment, but there was no loss of life or damage to the Sisters' roperty. All schools in Akyab are now closed. The Most Reverend Arthur A. Le Pailleur, C.S.C., Bishop of Chit- tagon, Bengal has removed his place of residence from Chittagong city to Padrishibpur. St. Placid's High School in the city of Chitta- gong in charge fo the Brothers of the Holy Cross has been closed. The buildings of the High School have been turned over to the mili- tary authorities in Chittagong and the pupils have been moved to the safer precincts of the village of Padrishibpur. The Hol,v Cross missionaries in Chittagong, priests, Brothers and Sisters, are from the Canadian Province of the Con- gregation. Hhtory of Claret]an St. Joan of Arc Honored In France Marseille, O0 -- His Eminence Emmanuel Cardinal Suhard, Arch- bishop of Paris, presid.ed at a solemn ceremony in the Cathedral of Notre Dame on the anniversary of the lifting of the siege of Orleans, the day on which the feast of St. Joan of Arc is ob- served in France. 'Prayers for France, beseeching the intercessiov of St. Joan and St. Michael, were offered in the-various churches of the Capital. At Vichy, a num- ber of Government officials at- tended a solemn Mass in the Church of St. Louis. Officials in the vicinity of Lyon were present at a ceremony where His Eminence Pierre Cardinal Ger- lier, Archbishop of Lyon, pre- sided, and in the afternoon more than 20,000 boys and girls as- sembled on the square to hear a sermon on the life of the heroine. In a Cathedral draped with flags of all the Provinces of France, the Most Rev. Jean Delay, Bishop of Marseille, preached on the appar- ition of this modest girl of the people which led to the defeat of the invader. At Nica, 15,000 school childrer marched gaily decorated streets and representatives of various or- ganizations placed flowers befor the statue in front of the Churct of" Notre Dame. Similar cere- monies were held in almost every town of France and at Algiers, Oran, Constantine and. other colon- ial cities. At Shanghai, the French Ambassador and members of the French Colbny attended a solemn Mass.

Dr. Joseph F. Thorntng, of Mount St. Mary's ohege, Emmitsburg, Md., Execu- tive Secretary of the Committee on Cultural Relations with Ibero- ,America. "In the crusade to save Chris= tianity," Dr. Thorning said, "it is important to remember the obli- gation to develop Christians. The latter are not the result of magic." Stating that "thoughtful non-Cath- :olic educators are beginning to express doubts about the ad.visi- bility of excluding religious edu- cation from" public schools in the United States,'-he asked why we should "try to foist upon the children of Ibere-America a system which has been tried and found wanting" here. "The real need of Central and South America is a parochial school system," he added. HANOVER SPECIAL! 5 +" $1 Dresses Expert Knit-Wear Blocking And Dyeing 3 $1 Suits Carry 700 W.

"Sometimes it pretends to favor Roman Catholic listeners," the Listening Post broadcast said. "For example, last December it told the French completely untruly that the German radio often broadcasts solemn Masses, sacred music and sermons. "But last Wednesday we noticed that the Nazis were jamming a broadcast in German from the Vatican station, and' especially an announcement that the Pope speak on May 13. In February the Nazis broadcast an anti-Catholic talk, which said, 'Luther could only have been a German. To be a German means to be a fighter; a German cannot pray in Latin; he cannot be expected to have the same God as a Negro or Jew.' "That sort of doctrine," the Lon- don Listening Post commented, "explains why the Christian Church in Europe is today at the head and heart of resistence to Nazi paganism. That's why a Nazi on the' Netherlands radio eomplained a week ago that the Netherlands Bishops have for- bidden membership in the Nazi party with a threat of the denial of the Sacraments. And that's why Quisling in Norway rages against the Norwegian bishops as 'political bishops, swindlers and traitors.' "The Christian Church is lead- ing the spiritual revolt of Europe against the cruelty and moral cor- ruption of Nazi rule. Christian- ity in Europe today is not a feeble faith. It is teaehing mankind how to withstand in the evil day, and , having done all, to stand." Four Of College's Alum In Nova Scotia Leg4shture Antlgonish, N, S.
