The procession was formed at the school thence proceed- ing to the church. After the exposi- tion Of the Most Blessed Sacrament the procession proceeded from the church to the rectory, where an altar, erected and festooned with wreaths and flowers, by the ladies of the Al- tar Society. Benediction was given; thence the procession slowly wended its way to the altar erected by the school children in the churchyard, where Benediction was again given. The final Benediction was received in the church. The school children are busily en- gaged in a program for the first graduation exercises of St. Anthony's School. Father Fletcher, President o Little Rock College, will deliver the commencement address which will be on the feast of St. Anthony.

The building itself was not de- stroyed, but will have to have almost a complete restoration of the interior furnishings. Quite a colony of colored people have been imported here lately, to re- lieve the farm labor scarcity. ST. VINCENT'S Gunderman-Hartman Wedding Again a nice wedding was solemn- ized June 5 when Mr. Adolph Hart- man and Miss Margaret Gunderman were pronounced husband and wife. In the morning at half-past eight the church bell announced the arrival of bride and groom in their shining auto. Soon the organist, Miss Maggie Wied- ower, started to play the usual wed- ding march where, upon the bridal party, accompanied by their attend- ants, stepped to the sanctuary which was beautifully decorated for that oc- casion with roses, lilies, cut flowers, ferns and palms, lavishly as it were pplied to beautify the solemnity. Rev. J. F. van Oudenhaven, the pastor, officated at the nuptial cere- mony, and celebrated High Mass af- terwards. Despite the rainy weather a good many people were present to witness the joyful event. A marriage union seems to have always some- thing new that attracts and capti- vates as it were people; especially the younger generation is always eager to see a wedding ceremony. The reason why is easily to be understood. Mr. William Hartman, a brother of the groom, acted as best man, while Miss Mary Gunderman, a twin sister of the bride, served as bridesmaid. The bride wore a fine white silken dress with buds and blossoms and veil and wreath to match. The bride's- maid fortunately wore a pink silken dress. Otherwise the officiating priest could easily have made a mis- take by addressing the question- "Wilt thou take. etc./' to the wrong party, as the twin sister, bride and bridesmaid, resemble each other as two drops of water. The groom and best man wore a very becoming dark blue serge suit. Bride and groom are children of good promindtit people of St. Vincent's and have a host of friends. It was too bad that the Very Rev. Dean H. J. Goebel of Morrilton could not come out on account o the unfavorable hymn, "Holy God We Praise Thy Name." MENA Very Reverend A. P. Gallagher left early Monday morning in his Ford, for several days visit in Little Rock. For the first time in years, Father Gallagher was unable to make the trip from Egger to Mena in time for Sun- day services, on account of the very heavy rain Saturday night. Rev. Thos. Martin, of St. John's Seminary, Little Rock, spent Sunday in Mena, leaving for DeQueen Mon- day morning on No. 1. Sisters Teresa and Margaret Mary, spent the week-end in Ft. Smith. Miss Anna Stultz, who was a board- ] er a St. Joseph's Academy during the school term, has returned to her home in Roanoke, Va. The fatigue of the long journey was lessened greatly t by a day pleasantly spent in Mem- phis, with an uncle and his family. Miss Anna's health has been much im- proved by Mena's famous climate and her friends will be glad to know that she expects to return in the fall. Miss Helen Ruth Thinnes will leave in a few days for a visit of several weeks with relatives and friends in In- diana. Master Ed Payne, of Shreveport, La., is spending his summer vacation with his aunt, Mrs. C. B. Nall and family. Miss Lonie Boehmer, of Ft. Smith, who has been visiting at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Boehmer, returned Sunday afternoon. Ice Cream Social The ice cream social which was to have been held Saturday evening, at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Boehmer, was postponed on account of the heavy rainfall. However, the dis- appointment that threatened to defeat the efforts of Mesdames Boehmer and Berry, was turned into success by the energetic cooperation of Mr. Boehmer, who attended to the refrigeration of several gallons of cream until Sun- day afternoon. The ladies served cake and cream to a nice crowd and the affair was enjoyable and satisfactory in every respect. Joe Stafford, nephew of Miss Bridg- et Clancy, has been appointed: secre- tary to Presiden Wilson, of the A. and M. College at Stillwater, Okla. Francis Smith, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Smith, has gone to Enid, Okla., to remain indefinitely, if conditions are satisfactory. Francis has many friends in Mena, whose best wishes will follow him. TD00h00K00A Last Tuesday afternoon, June 5, marked the departure of the Sisters of Divine Providence who have gone to San Antonio, Texas, to attend their summer Normal. Their loving faces are missed by all, but especially by those who were under their care dur- ing the past year. However, time passes swiftly and their sweet pres- ence will soon again be enjoyed by those to whom they have endeared taemselves. In the meantime the enlargement of their home is being quickly but well accomplished, improvements be- ing already under-way. The Mothers' Club, whose sole pur- weather, as he had the right to tie pose is to assist the Sisters and the the wedding knot, as the bride former- school in attaining their high ideal, is ly resided at Morrilton. but Very Rev. giving a bridge party Wednesd: af- I Father Pindly gave permission to our ernoon, June 13, at the new rectory pastor to perform the ceremony, and it is hoped that it will be a big After the ceremony .about a dozen autos filled with guests, mostly kin- folks, drove with the happy pair to the residence of the gride's parents, where a good and plentiful wedding dinner was prepared. We wish the happy couple a long nd prosperous life at St. Vincents. DIXIE Patron Feast Day Tuesday, June 5th, St. Boniface parish celebrated in all splendor, the Patron Feast of the church. The early Masses were well attend- ed and at the Solemn High Mass at 9:30 the church was well filled. The Very Rev. Dean H. J. Goebel, C. S. Sp., pastor of the Sacred Heart church of Morrilton, sang the Mass. Rev. Jos. Baumgartner, who was assisting Father P. Zell at Conway, acted as deacon, and Father Kordsmeier, as subdeacon of the Mass. Father P. ZeU, C. S. Sp., the eloquent speaker of the day, directed the ceremonies. Much time was spent by the young ladies of the parish in decorating the church for the occasion. The altars were beautifully prepared with St. Jo, sepia lilies and draped with rambler 'OSOS.

These socials are 'an annual affair during the summer months and are always a success, both financially and socially, due to the Hearty cooperation of the good ladies and the enthusiastic support of their loved pastor, Doctor Clarendon.

NEWS SunIay, June 10th, the members of St. Edward's Branch No. 79, C. K. of A., held their annual basket picnic and outing at Luna Park, about seven miles from Little Rock, on the 19th St. Pike. The morning hours seemed to be uncontrollable by the weather man, but by 11 o'clock the sun began to shine, and a half hour later the members of the C. K. of A., their families and friends began arriving at the park with well filled baskets of good things to eat. By 12:30 several hundred were seated partaking of the eats. Swimming was the first sport enjoyed after the eats, especially by those that were. not afraid of the wa- ter. The winners in the 100 yard foot races were as follows: Boys under l0 years Master Cammille Metrailer won the prize---a sack of marbles. Boys from 10 to 1 years, Master Oscar Bopp was the winner. A bat and ball was given as premium. Girls under 12 years, Edith Kir%uel succeeded in crossing the home line first, and as reward was a box of handkerchiefs. The young men's race was won by Mr. Eugene Downing, the prize being an Eversharp pencil. The men's race was awarded to Mr. Fred Synder, who won the watch fob, but by only a small margin, the fats are some run- ners. The young ladies prizea Van- ity case, was won by Miss Bernice Lipsmeyer. Last, but not least, the best race of all was the married la- dies, a 50-yard run. Mrs. Louis Beck was the fastest runner and was pre- sented with a box of fancy stationery. The Guessing Contest on the pint of beans--a fruit bowl and stand was the prize for the nearest correct guess and the beans was the booby prize for the one making the worst guess. There were 1580 beans in the jar. ML lrank Severson was the nearest guesser, who guessed 1565, and Mrs. Win. Bauer got the beans for guess- ing 168. Then the fun began as all kinds of juvenile games were played. The men pitched horse shoes, John Kirspel and Jos. H. DeClerk, winning the championship of the day. Other games played were drop the handker- chief, scrub ball, dog and cat, Lon- don bridge is falling down, Virginia Reel, jump the rope, high jump and many others. Everyone present en- joyed the day and pronounced the out- ing a great success, affd looking for- ward for another good time at the next months entertainment. Class Initiation The so]emn exemplification of the three degrees of the C. K. of A. will be given to a class of applicants nexl unday, June 17th, at St. Edward' 77all, 9th .and Ferry streets, by the St. ]dwards Degree Team. All members remains a model. Above all, wish that the French we Catholics might be inspired by so eloquent a lesson. They are, 'according to American statistics, which we will not dispute, 26,000,000, of which 10,000,000 are practicing and 16,000,000 baptized and married by the Church but not regularly practicing. How can it be that 26,000,000 Catho- lies should be condemned to an athe- istic national life by 13,000,000 non. Catholics? ]ecause they are not or- ganized. Let them study the N. C. W.C.. This organization, still young and already powerful, which, placing itself under the direction and cohtrol of the bishops: has already rendered great services to the American church and the American nation. Through its bureaus of information, advice, co- operation 'and assistance it has worked efficaciously for the creation of a spirit of solidarity among American Catholics. Their scattered forces have been assembled around a single pro- gram, and, gaming conscmusness of their numbers, they have felt their hopes grow; vigorous impulse, order and perseverance have marked all their undertakings."

PRIESTS PROMINENT IN ARMY RELIGIOUS TRAINING MEETING Secretary Weeks and General Persh- ing Both Say Religion Is Neces. sary to Army Efficiency. (By N. C. W. C. News Service.) Washington, D. C., June ll.--Cath- olic priests played a prominent part in the conference on the development of moral and religious training in the army held under the auspices of the War Department last week. The Rev. John J. Burke, C.S.P., gen- eral secretary of the National Catholic Welfare Council, prepared the general pronouncements and findings of the conference, which were filed with and approved by the secretary of war. The findings emphasized the fact that the army chaplain is a man of religion, chosen from the churches and commis- sioned to do religious work in the whole army, and that the welfare worker is not a chaplain. Offends Religious Liberty. "Chaplains," said the pronounce- ment, "are commissioned to work for all men without distinction of creed. To interpret this as meaning that all creeds are alike, or that creed is of no value, is to impose one's own religious beliefs upon others. This is to offend religious liberty, because religious lib- erty postulates religious differences. To wipe out all religious differences, and then to claim to be tolerant, has no meaning." Father Duffy Speaks. The Rev. Francis P. Dully, chaplain of the famous Sixty-ninth Regiment of New York, presided over a section of the conference given to a consider- ation of all phases of advancing the moral and religious life of the army which are within the military estab- lishment itself. These include the re- sponsibility of the National Guard, the Officers' Reserve Corps, the selection of chaplains and their training, the stimulation of local programs and such activities as correspondence courses and chaplains' schools. Dr. Cyrus Ad- ler of the Jewish welfare board, pre- sided over the section given to a con- sideration of the bettermen of moral and religious training of army men through the co-operation of agencies outside of the military establishment. Addressed by Weeks and Pershing. Notable addresses were made before those who participated in the confer- ence by Secretary of War Weeks and Gen. John J. Pershing. "Civilization is tottering and it can only be saved by religion," said Sec- retary Weeks. "Nothing will hohi mankind better together or be as much benefit to men of all nations as re- ligion. We wish to instill true religion into the hearts of our young men. I am confident that this conference will assist us to improve our influence." "Army efficiency requires that at- tention be given to religious matters," said General Pershing in his address. "Religion," he asserted, "contains the secret of and the impetus toward clean living. Therefore a steady ef- fort is being made to put the hearts of man in right relation to God." Against Unbrotherly Denunciation. ,'Soldiers'" General Pershing said, "quickly distinguish between a relig- ious effort that is 'pure and undefiled and that which merely seeks sectarian advantage' and they have no sympa- thy with the latter, for those who in- dulge in unbrotherly denunciation of others who seek the same God through different form of faith, expression and relationship." DIVORCE SPEED IN TEXAS COURT Houston, Tex., June 10.--Judge J. D. Harvey, in the District Court here yesterday, granted 912 divorces in 245 minutes. The cases were in virtually all instances non-contested. Among the divorces granted was one to Mrs. Andrew Harrison, who w,s taken from her home in Goose Creek, Jan. 5 by a group of disguised men and flogged.
