NATIONAL CATHOLIC ,,t tu z/.9,2b. ___ LIFE CONFERENCE 3801 Grand Ave., Des Moines, Ia. A Drunkard and a Brick House Three miles southeast of Pella, Iowa--out of place perhaps, but very much determined to keep its place---there stands, huge and imposing--a brick farmhouse. It is so determined-looking that the government even built the U. S. Highway in a curve around it. The big house has any number of offspring in the vicinity -- chips off the same brick block. All of them seem to say, "I'm here to stay. My master will always be a farmer and so his children in their turn. I'm built for the gener- ations'! Brick or stone farmhouses from the beginning might have done any Parish Picnic Mrs. G. P. Stocker Represents Parish For Blessed OFanyeRvial]ql--OMrs. George P. Sacrament Jonesboro -- On Ascension Thursday, the Blessed Sacrament parish of Jonesboro, held their annual parish picnic for parochial and high school students at Craig- tead County Forest, to close another school year.

Jonesboro -- The annual parish May Procession and' crowning of the Blessed Virgin was held on Sunday afternoon, May 3, in Jonesboro. The procession of school chil- dren, singing May hymns, led by altar boys and Rev. W. J. Kords- meier marched from the school to the church where the crowning and Benediction took place. Little Marlene Butterworth crowned the Blessed Virgin on the side altar in the church. A sermon was deliv- ered by W. J. Kordsmeier. Catholic College Graduate Hero Montreal, () -- A graduate of Loyola College here, Lieut. William Gaston Tellier, of Westmount, has. been awarded the George Medal for disposing of an unexploded bomb, according to the London Gazette. Stocker, president of the Univer- sity Woman's Club, represented' St. Joseph's Catholic Church in a pro- gram presenting church activities in Fayetteville. The program was Fesented over station KVOO, Tulsa, Okla., May 5, 1942 on "It's a Woman's World." Because Fayetteville is a uni- versity town, Mrs. Stocker pointed out the need for helping the large numbei of Catholic students to find a Catholic atmosphere while attending the University. This need, she said, had been met with the establishment of Phi Kappa Theta, a fraternity for Catholic men. Mrs. Stocker also said that the fraternity, which houses a number of Catholic men, provides them with a good Catholic atmos- phere, companionship, and an ade- quate social program. In addition the fraternity forms the nucleus for the Newman Club which is open to all Catholic students. Mrs. Stocker mentioned that Phi Kappa Theta is cooperating with the National Catholic Community Service of the use in that is has offered its facilities for their use, and that a program has been planned to meet the needs of mem- bers already in service.

Sh i Willi KEM TONE They might even have curved our erw n- ams - highways enough to make them picturesque and enjoyable besides for Painting Walls, Ceilings . . . for Painting over Wall Paper -- merely efficient. You can say about efficiency whatever you wish. but hardly ever can you say that "it's picturesque. An Englishman's heart warms him to the point of wanting to i go for a walk when he reads i Chesterton to the effect that "The 'rolling English drunkard made the rolling English road." Brick farm, houses, by being the very opposite of the drunkard, might have done the same for an American. i It's not that America hasn't miles and miles of rolling rural roads. It's rather that the roads which most Americans travel are not the country ones. The city American in his hurry has 'no time' for them--in more senses than one--and to his unending dis- credit and loss. Many soldier boys are again discovering some of the 'lost' vital- ities and realities of life through contact with the country. By the time they come back they may all seek to live where the wide open reigns. Said the soldier from Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri: "I like the army .... When it rains you get wet; when the sun shines again you get dry." That is the kind of a remark you would expect from the mouth and heart of a real countryman-- like a farmer, but from nobody else. --ESG JONESBORO, ARKANSAS "Time To Think" LANGFORD'S BURIAL PROTECTION t Congratulations DEPARTMENT STORE JONESBORO, ARK.
