Newfoundland Priest Gives Blessing Over Radio London. (E)--A priest newly or- dained in Rome and born in New- foundland gace his first blessing over Vatican Radio, beard here. His name was taken down as the Rev. Robert Lacey and he was or- dained at the Irish College in the Eternal City. He sent his blessing to his relatives and friends, not- bly his father and mother, "To whom I owe so much," his two sisters at home and his brother abroad, and all his friends in St. John's and elsewhere. The new priest said that at his first Mass, offered at the Convent of St. John of God, he was "as- sisted by Father Joe O'Byrne." He added "Father Joe O'Byrne and I expect to start our home- Vacant Wards Shelter For Serviceman New Orleans. (E)--A number of wards, closed down by the short- age of help occasioned by the war, have been converted into a sort of "Week-end hotel" for servicemen here at Charity Hospital, where an average of 300 soldiers, sail- ors and marines are accommodat- ed each week. One week 600 men were "registered." It all started one night a few months ago when two tired sold- iers strolled into the admitting room of the hospital, conducted by the Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul. and as':ed one of the nuns on duty if she could give them shelter. She led' them to beds in an examination room (.f an admitting ward, where they spent the night. Nothing more was heard of the incident for several weeks, until one night a nun on duty was en- countered by 50 servicemen seek- ing shelter. There were ample beds in the wards which had been shut down, but the nun wasn't sure whether she had authority to allow the wards to be used for hotel purposes. She appealed to Sister Stanislaus, the superior, and Dr. O. P. Daly, hospital suprin- tendent, who gave instructions to take care of every serviceman that the hospital facilities would permit and "don't turn anyone away." Since then, the vacated wards of the hospital have become a popular shelter for servicemen, who pay only 50-cents a night for the accommodations and that is used. to pay for laundering bed linens and towels. One of the nuns on night duty stated: "You'll imagine that 600 sold- ward journey in a short time." : Catholic Hospital Gets iers, sailors and marines would cause quite a disturbance in a i Largest Iron Lung hospital.

()--Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth through- out the world will observe the first anniversary of the death of Mother Mary Lauretta, who was Superior General of the congre- gation for 39 years. Born at Widzewo, Poland, Jan- uary 30, 1862, Thecla Lubowidzka became acquainted with Mother Frances Siedliska, foundress of the congregation.

HUBBLE SHOE STORE SHOES FOR ENTIRE FAMILY POCAHONTAS, ARKANSAS No Information On Prisoners ]Birth Control Is Work Of Sabotagin9 U. S. Says Washington. (N:)-- Callilg birth control "the work of sabotaging Uncle Sam," the Rev. Dr. Edgar Schmiedeler, O.S.B., Director of the Family Life Bureau, National Catholic Welfare Conference, to- day asserted that this propaganda is being actively spread among rural people, "the one group that has still been holding out some hope for the survival of the na- tion." Dr. Schmiedcler was particular- ly critical of an article titled "The Birth Control Nurse" in the June issue of The Survey Graphic, a publication which proclaims it- self a "magazine of social inter- pretation." The author, Grace Naismith, associate editor of Reader's Digest, present "the birth control nurse" to the reader as "soft - spoken, warm - hearted, southern" Mildred Delp. Miss Delp is identified as "field consultant of the Planned Parent- hood Federation of America. Listed as some of her "accomplish- ments" are: travel of 85,000 miles, establishment of 50 birth control centers in California, supplying of birth control information to more than 6,000 persons, who were in- terviewed personally, addresses delivered to thousands on methods of birth control. Work Among Rurtl People Her work, Dr. Schmiedeler said, is carried on among rural people. One of her methods of getting over the birth control message was to have teachers pin notes on the clothing of children to take home to their mothers, inviting them to attend meetings to be addressed by Miss Delp. The article states that demon- strations were in Farm Secu]'ity Administration camps of the Gov- ernment, of which, it adds, "there are 25 in California and Arizona." "This insidious program of un- dermining the country's strength was going on, ' Dr. Schmiedeler said, "while facts like the follow- ing were constantly coming to the attention of the American people: "(1) Petain and Giraud both pointed to birth control as the cause of the downfall of France; "(2) Prime Minister Winston Churchill and his son Major Ran- In Russia dolph Churchill both warned the British people against the same impending danger to England for RANDOLPH COUNTY ABSTRACT( )MPANY For Deeds, Mortgages, Abstracts or Land Titles Complete Record Titles of Every Tract of Land In Randolph County Ben A.

(N:)--After many vain attempts to get information from the Soviet government concern- ing prisoners of war held in Rus- sia, the Vatican Information Bu- reau, through Vatican Radio, has several times lately told the world of its failure, declaring at the same time that efforts are still being made to get news of the prisoners and to establish con- tact with them. The German Radio is, as was to be expected, making propaganda use of Russia's attitude, asserting that Soviet Russia "is the only )ower which, in open opposition to all existing international agree- ments, and in flagrant violation of the most elementary laws of humanity, does not supply any news about the fate of prisoners of war in her country." The British overseas dominions and the United States have been praised by Vatican Radio for the faeilitios which they b, hve af- forded to Apostolic Delegates in the matter of visiting prisoners of war. :$ Philippine Nun Dies In French Internment Camp Vatican City.
