Since the beginning of the twentieth century many wonderful happenings have taken place and great progress has been made in founding institutions for the benefit of the public. This is true of very State in the Union and perhaps in no State has greater pro- gress been made than in Arkansas. The educational advantages 'in this State have more than doubled in a single decade and indeed they would need to be as the population of our State has increased to a very high percentage--we might say, nearly doubled. Education. One of the foundation principles of the Catholic Church is education: Even in the far away parishes during the early periods the Church supported good schools, when district schools could not be maintained and many non-Catholic children have been edu- cated in the parochial schools of Ark- ansas. During the g,at progress of the last decade school districts have become more settled and splendid schooling facilities may be had in all parts of the State. The Catholic schools have also increased and a num- ber of its educational institutions have been enlarged and housed in new mod- ern buildings. Diocesan Charges. The Catholic schools and institu- Fo de Of Stln [0 ph' Orph g Url r se s alTCl e a touch of its rustic beauty, se- before the Rt. Rev. Bishop Morris lecting the site on Pulaski Heights, when the duties of the Diocese were he could not have secured a more beautiful location. It is high in alti- tude, overlooks the river and cities and presents a lovely landscape view along the valleys through which the Arkansas river flows. Little Rock College is second to none in appoint- ment or in its educational facilities. Orphanage Opened. St. Joseph's Orphanage has been the most unfortunate , in a way, of any of the institutions found- ed by Bishop Morris. After he had seclcted 720 acres of as fine !land as there was in the State of Arkansas, high in altitude and just enough rolling nature to present a beautiful landscape, he built a mag- nificent 82-room, fire-proof building with accommodations for 250 persons.! He had brought the place to a high state of cultivation and stocked the farm with improved machinery, fine buildings, registered cattle and good horses. His plans to make this, not only a vocational training school, but a partly self:sustain!ng establishment, through its operative products, as well as farm produce, was thwarted by the World War. Uncle Sam in looking over the land for cantonments found this advantageous tract of land and fell with covetous eye upon the turned over to him, was to build an extension to the hospital build:ng. This was completed in 1910 and made I St. Vincent's the largest institution l of its kind in the State. This addi- tion was the beginning of numerous improvements and the efficiency of St. Vincent's Infirmary has been advanced and added to until it is counted among the finest institutions in the United States. Infirmary Class A. Recent appointment of a medical and surgical staff, standardization of nurses systems and equipment, have so perfected St. Vincent's efficiency as to assure it of a Class A standing m a near future inspection Helps in War. The United States in locating the cantonment at Camp Pike would have been involved in no little trouble in caring for the sick and afflicted had it not been for St. Vincent's Infirm- ary. The great influx of population caused by Government work needed medical care and St. Vincent's with its present efficiency was taxed to the limit to take care of all the afflicted sent there. And indeed this state of affairs did not seem to abate even after the Government had finished its construction work. The institution RT. REV. JOHN B. MORRIS, D. D. tions of Arkansas are under the charge of the Diocese of Little Rock and their benefits are extended to all mankind irrespective of church or creed Their system for education has been framed by a master mind and those whose duty it is to give instruction are espe- cially trained for the work. Students from these schools are note'd for thor- oughness in educational training, modesty in bearing and noblehess of character. Strongest Ally. Bishop Morris has devoted much of his time to educational facilities, ' which he considers the strongest ally to bring about good citizenship among the coming generations. Every in- Bishop's beauty'spot. Tlmy appealed to his patriotism, which resulted in the Orphanage being moved into .the building vacated by the Little Rock College when that institut!on moved into its new quarters on Pulaski Heights. St. Joseph's Ol"phanage is without a doubt the finest institution of its k!nd in the great Southwest. A de- scription of.which will be found m the first pages of this issue. St. Vincent's Infirmary. St. Vincent's Infirmm'y is the acme of hospital in the South and for years past its field has extended not only throughout the State of Arkansas but has continually had as many patients as its present capacity will comfort- ably care for and in many instances it has been overcrowded to the point of refusing cases that were not in great need of hospital treatment. A history of St. Vincent's Infirmary firmary will be found in Section 2 of this issue. Mt. St. Mary's Academy. St. Mary's Academy is another won- defful Catholic institution that has done much good in training young ladies from evewwhere in Arkansaa as well as many other States in the Union The Academy was originally located in the city where the Arcade to adjoining States on all sides.
