We have at times published such reports but in justice to all the schools and to the great bulk of our readers the essays and addresses must be held as not of adequate value for general reading. We would like to encourage the schools and scholars by reproducing these excellent efforts, but as they flood the office during these closing weeks and are quite beyond the ca-. paeity of our pages, we must defer and seek from our correspondents an interesting report of the general ex- ercises.

The initiation program began at me St. Boniface Church on Sunday morn- ing, "when the whole Court of Joan oi Arc attended the ;8 o'clock Mass and received Holy Communion in a body. Of the initiation proper we may not tell, since the daughters are discreetly silent concerning it, but report says that the Joan of Arc pageant which closed the proceedings was one of the most finished productions ever staged by the order. It presented in a series of beautiful living pictures, in true meeval setting, the story o£ the "Maid of Orleans," now a canonized saint. A banquet altogether modern in ew ery detail of menu and appointments was a very satisfying feature of the day's proceedings. Week at St. Anne's.

PI0000.BLUFF On Pentecost Sunday there were three Masses celebrated in St. Joseph's Church, the first two at 5:30 and 8 o'clock, was said lYy Father Cyril of Little Rock. Father Tynin said the High Mass, and after the catechism, which, like the poor we have always with us, preached a telling sermon on charity. He impressed the congregation that this was the time when Catholics should stand together. Our enemies were pressing from every side; we were on trial, as it were, and it be- hooved all men and women of Catho- lic faith to pray for their calumnia- tors and be silent upon the great topic of the day. Good Advice. That if Catholics were all what they should l)e, if they lived up to their faith and the sacraments of the church and practiced charity and brotherly love towards no only the household of the faith but their non-Catholic neighbors and friends, religious intol- erance would become bankrupt for the want of business. Envy, jealousy and revenge would be lessened, falsehood, slander and persecution would be un- known, sectarian walls in matters of religion would be lowered the church would become what it should be---one united, harmonious family. Father. Cyril and the Spaniards. Father Cyril came to give the Span- ish speaking members of the parish an opportunity of making their Easter duty. It was a revelation to see so many gathered together who either could not speak the English language, of if they did they, spoke it very indif- ferently. Father gave them a sermon in Spanish, and from the eager ex- pression of their faces you could read- ily see they were drinking in every word. Mexicans on Plantations. A Jefferson County planter has re- cently brought 75 families of Mexi- cans to work on his plantation, and in order to keep them happy and satis- fied he is soon to build a small church, where Mass can be said when a priest can be secured. Bohemians Remembered. In this county alone "the harvest is ripe but the laborers are few." The Bohemian settlement, about ten miles from Pine Bluff, consists of about eight families. They have a nice little church, built by Father Higgins, while he was pastor of St. Joseph's ano ing in a swimming pool with two other companions, when she lost her hold on a raft which the bathers had been riding on. She sank in about 15 feet of water and her body was not recovered until life was entirely ex- tinct. The Hughes family have long been identified with St. Joseph's Church and the heart of the congregation goes out in deep sympathy to the'dis- tressed family. Father Tynin offici- ated at tle funeral services, and her body was laid by the side of her grandmother--the late Mrs. Hughes. Daughters of America.' The Daughters of America held their second initiation within a year on Pentecost Sunday and had quite a large class of candidates• The initia- tion was held in the hall of the Busi- ness ad Professional Women's Club. All the members of the court and candidates attended services at the early Mass and received communion in a body. After the initiation a ban- quet was served in the ballroom of Hotel Pines, beginning at 6 o'clock. Near the close of the banquet a pro- gram was rendered, with Miss Weaver as toastmaster• Those who spoke at thebanquet and their subjects are as follows: Invocation, Father Tynin; "Our Church," Mrs. Stella McGaughy; "Our Court," Mrs. Mary Durner; "Our Can- didates," Mrs, Josie Borensen; "Uni- ty,"' Miss Rose Burgy; "Charity," Miss Emma Lenhert; benediction, Fa- ther Schafer.

Jen- kins ,an Annunciation girl of several years back, was toastmistress. Miss Helen Mooney, a janior, sang "Sun- rise in You." Miss.Helen has a voice of rare strength and sweetness and is always demanded in every musical program at the school and is very often Called on by social and literary clubs to sing at their meetings.

Misses Rose and Phelomena Sylvester, talented musicians, played a duet. Miss Mar- garet Kerwin, also contributed to the musical program, .,!A musical of any kind without Miss Margaret, would .indeed be incomplete.

Sister, on receiving the re- membrance, expressed much feeling on having to leave' Pne Bluff. She aid her Stay in the Academy had been a happy one and that it was with genu- ine regret that she had to leave. "Brad" Back to Cradle M.T. J B.
