'Book Convinced Me,' Declares New Convert Rev. John A. O'Brlen, Ph. D. (University of Notre Dame) If St. Paul were alive today, it is probable that he would be the director of a large publish- i n g company. Why? Because the p tinting press is the most effective means for the d i ssemination of truth. W h e r e h i s voice reached only a so ore or two of peo- ple, the print- ed word reaches millions. The moral? Make good use of Cath- ()lie literature -- newspal)ers, magazines, pamphlets a n d books--to spread the Faith. The efficacy of the printed word in, this regard ix illustrat- ed in the conversion of I[rs. Alice Christianson, a registered nurse, of I'asadena, Calif. "Fourteen years ago a mira- cle happened. But it all start- ed a long time before that. When I was eight, nlother died, and I was sent to a Dominican convent in Los Angeles. I was snatched out after a year, when it was discovered that I liked the nuns," Mrs. Christianson re- lated. "But the damage had 'been done. From then on the thought of some day becoming a Cath- olic was in the back of my mind. I was reared in the Con- gregational faith, taught Sun- (lay school and sang in the choir. As a child of New Eng- land Puritanism, I was proud of my historical background, hut I t'ailed to find it in the spirit- ual security that religion should provide. Jesus was regarded as the "Good Man," the "Master," but not as God incarnate. "This wasn't a sufficiently firm foundation, if lie wasn't divine, as He claimed to be, He was not even a good man but a deceiver. I mentioned this to our minister, and all he did was to talk about felh)wship and good will. Yet I had many ties to the church and continued to attend and participate in its activities. In 1946, my father became laospitalizcd and visit- ing him took me into the neigh- borhood of my convent school. I called and discovered any old dormitory mistress. "The visit rekindled my inter- est in the Faith and I started to attend Mass.. But the turn- ing point came one day in a dusky old bookshop. I chanced upon a book, "The Faith of Mil- lions.' I took it home and read it from cover 'to cover.

The court's 4-2 decision 'against the law, which was to go into effect July 1, affects so m e 52,000 private school pupils who would have been eligible for such transportation. The law had aroused wide- spread controversy in the state. Catholics in general had favor- ed it, but the Wisconsin Council of Churches and most other Protestant organizations in the FIRST National Bank 3 Convenient Locations SIXTH and GARRISON Highway 71 South and Jenny Lind Building 310, Fort Chaffee FORT SMITH, ARK.

The law stipulated that bus rides be provided along regular routes for all children to the public school "which they are entitled to attend." It said that nonpublic school pupils would have to make their own ar- rangements for getting from the public school to their own schools. The heart of the controversy surrounding the measure cen- tered on whether it benefited the children or private schools. In its majority decision, the State Supreme Court relied more on a section of the Wis- consin constitution than it did on the First Amendment provi- sion of the U.S. Constitution in regard to establishment of reli- gion. EDUCATION (Continued from Page 1) rides the opportunity to strengthen motivation through prayers and the Sacraments. It urges him to help the poor and provides opportunities to do so; to serve his country." ofT point up the importance instilling proper motivation in the student, the preachers observed: "Two students study accounting. One uses his know- ledge to keep all the finances of a firm in perfect order. The other uses his knowledge to cheat on. income tax returns. Both halle received the same knowledge, but they use it in different ways," The first step in education is to provide all the facts, the preachers observed. "Catholic schools provide information in all subjects -- science, English, history, religion and such," they said, and "the curriculum shows the relation of one subject to another; mathematics to phys- ics, religion to science, to his- tory, to social studies et cetera," INSURANCE ALL LINES BAKING CO.
