PAGE TWO THE GUARDIAN, AUGUST 14, 1942 Attractive Counter Displays Religious cles At The Guardian --Guardian Photo The three-shelf display counter in which is arranged The Guardian's stock of religious art- icles for sale is pictured above. Clever indirect lighting makes the counter instantly visible from the hall. The flat counter on top was converted into two different shelves with glass tops. Medals, rosaries, prayer books, vigil lights, holy wter fonts, pictures and statues are a few of the articles which may be purchased by mail or across the Guardian Office. -- The adven- ture of Religious Articles in Little Rock is a story that should be told. It all happened in the early part of May. The Newman Libr- ary was forced to close. In ad- dition to hundreds of books, some $200.00 worth of religious articles were on hand. Practically speaking, the two of- fices occupied by The Guardian staff were already crowded with machinery, cabinets, files and of- rice equipment as such; the staff, too, was already burdened with endless tasks of keeping up with the details of publishing and fin- ancing a Diocesan paper -- But Little Rock had to have a place to buy religious articles; there should be one place in the Diocese where the faithful could get art- icles of devotion. So, the Newman Library closed, and boxes of religious articles were delivered to The Guardian office. The problem solved with enthusiasm. The Rt. Rev. Msgr. H. H. Wernke of Our Lady of Good Counsel parish donated lum- ber that he had stacked under the rectory; not a piece of lumber was bought.. Paneling and light strips were hauled oul to St. John's Seminary where Mr. Ed McEvoy in a few hours cut out and glued together four well made cabinet doors. Waiting on delivery of doors was Carl Urbani, local con- tractor, who was anxious to con- tribute a work of Catholic Action in which he was best qualified. Four evenings that extended close to mid-night were consumed before the attractive show case pictured above was completed. Carl Urbani, jr., a son, who is connected with the Arkansas Elec- tric Co., installed lighting fixtures while his father fashioned the woodwork.

Pictures Taken Of Articles In Office Guardian Office.--Pictures of religious articles displayed in the various advertisements are act-', ',ual photographs of items on I display at The Guardian. A contrivance or copying i photographs and, making pic-, tures of almost any kind and', size of articles as been made and' put to many uses. Maybe a' newspaper office will, after all, be an excellent establishment for the promotion t of the sale of religious articles. shelving and indirect lighting, has given The Guardian office a suit- able display for religious articles with hardly any cost whatever. Established in the month of May, it was not long until the stock l was doubled and trebled with new orders. Additional space was needed. So. again Mr. Urbani works on The Guardian show case and installs a glass top in a space that was formerly used as a coun- ter shelf. Many Little Rock people and others through mail orders from over the state have made selections from the display as well as from the items advertised in the paper. "Certainly, there is a small profit made in the handling and sale of these articles. There is no over- head in handling them, however. GILLETT (Continued from pase 1) pleted this week, and there would be more than enough to replace St. Anne's mission. So writes John Pruniski of North Little Rock, vice-president of The Guardian Board: "I have neglected up to this minute doing the thing that every Catholic should do. So here it is. My check to help rebuild St. Anne's mission. The Guardian activity in this work only serves again to remind us of the great and vital force for good to come from a live diocesan newspaper." How long should we keep this gauge in The Guardian? How much should we have added to it this week to show some kind of goal that we want to reach? It's a joy to be forced to move it higher. Listed here are all donors to this fund in the order which they were received. Contributions this week are at the end of the list.

The new department will serve as another source of income for our Diocesan paper. Every dollar i will be turned over to the useful] purpose of increasing the circula-i i tion of the Catholic press. There: are hundreds of non-Catholics and] others who are possible converts, there are poor people in scattered missions and many other good souls who will benefit by the small lrofit realized from the sale of religious articles on dis- play a The Guardian office. It is the plan of The Guardian to do its best to maintain a ready supply of these articles for im- mediate delivery anywhere in the State. Orders are filled promptly and customers receive items the very next day after the order in received. It can be said that were it not for the Newman Library and the example of its grand work, that possibly The Guardian would not now be in the business. Complete satisfaction is guaran- teed on all items. This assurance is to encourage people to place their orders by mail with full pri- vilege to return items not com- pletely satisfactory. Many articles will be difficult or impossible to replace once the present stock is exhausted. But for the most part ample reserve stock has been secured. Only last Friday the use of silver has been ordered stopped in the manufac= ture of these articles. It was a very bad time to open such a de- partment.
