(:)--The famous Cana- dian bomber ace, Wing Comman- der John (Moose) Fulton, who has been missing since a recent raid on Hamburg, has been awarded a third decoration, the Distinguish- ed Service Order (D.S.O.) Pre- viously he had won the Disting- uished Flying Cross (D.F.C.) and the Air Force Cross (A.F.C.). One of the veterans serving with the Royal Air Force, which he  joined in 1935, this Cathdlic youth from Kamloops, B.C., is estimated to have taken part in upwards of 100 raids on enemy territory. He was awarded the D.F.C. in 1940, and last year won the A.F.C. He commanded squadrons which took part in all the major raids of the war on Germany. The official cihation for his D.S.O. follows: "This officer participated in at- tacks on industrial targets, dock- yards, towns, airdromes and other important enemy targets. On one Nation Is 'Christian' As Its Citizens New York. (IC)--"Lf the nations have neglected and disregarded Christ it is all because the mem- bers which go to make up the nations and the communities and the homes have neglected' and dis- regarded Him," the Rev. John J. Walde, Pastor of Corpus Christi Church, Oklahoma City, declared Sunday night in his address over the "Catholic Hour." "If only we were not so in- fluenced by the pagan attitude which we see and sense all about us,"''F'ather Walde said. "If only we could recapture something of the spirit of the early Christians or the Saints down through the ages. They lived the Christ-life. For them Christ was as real as He was .to the Apostles with Whom He associated so intimately during His sojourn here on earth. They were only human, even as you and I, and yet they were so im- bued with Christ's presence in them that Christ was manifested through them to others. Such a one, for instance, Was St. Paul, who could say, 'It is now no longer I that live, but Christ lives in me' (Galatians 2:20). Such a one was St. Francis of Assisi whose one aim in life was to imitate Christ perfectly in all his words and actions. The result was that he merited the glorious tribute: 'The most Christ-like man since Christ.'" "But Christ-like, holiness and sanctification, are not only for the Saints," Father Walde went on. They are for you and for me as well. We, too, must be Christ-like. We, too, must realize that the only real aim in life is to be one with Christ; for nothing else will re- volutionize the world, nothing else will end tie hatred and the war nothing else will bring a lasting peace. But can it be said of us that we are Cirist-like? nothing else will bring a lasting peace. But can it be said of us that we are Christ-like? As we walk the path of life do others see in us just another citizen or do they se in us stalwart, sterling followers of Christ, souls walking their way to heaven7 "What then must we do to be one with Christ? First of all we must rid ourselves of the pagan unchristian sentiments which are expressed and' lived all about us. We cannot serve God and Mam- mon. Then we must seek Christ where we can find Him. We can find Him in our neighbor as did the early Christians, and as every other true follower of Christ has done ever since. They learned to know Christ and to love Him by Knowing and loving their neigh- bors. They saw in their neighbor a member of Christ or, at least, one destined to be a member of Christ. By caring for the branches and the leaves hey were thus caring for the vine as well. They loved Christ by loving one an, other. What an antidote for the hatred of men for men today, a hatred which in turn is directed against God Himself." Canadian Chief Of Chaplains Home From Britain Ottawa. 00--The Most Rev. C. L. Nelligan, Principal Cath- olic Chaplain of the Canadian Armed Forces and Bishop of Pembroke, has returned to Can- ada after a three months visit to Britain, where he conferred with Catholic chaplains attached to the various Canadian units. Declaring that the morale of the Canadian Army was very high, Bishop Nelligan, who holds the rank of Colonel, said what the troops want are cigarettes and letters. But the letters should be "cheerful, chummy letters, letters that don't tell them what is wrong at home." He found a return on the part of many "to the faith of their ancestors." flight in April this year he suc- cessfully attacked Kiel. On the return journey his aircraft was attacked' by an enemy fighter while flying at a height of 1,500 feet. Fulton's aircraft sustained 'much damage. One blade of the port propeller was shot away, the rear turret was completely shat- tered and the rear gunner wound- ed. The hydraulic system was damaged and many of the air- craft's instruments were rendered unserviceable. The damaged pro- peller caused intense vibration. "To offset this, Fulton decided to continue the journey on one engine. The aircraft couldn't maintain height, however, and de- scended to some 20 feet above the level of the sea. Fulton was compelled to restart the port engine and succeeded in regain- ing height. "The vibration commenced again and. continued in an alarming manner until his base was reached where an excellent landing was made with the under-carriage re- traeted. "This officer's skill and determ- l ination were responsible for the safe return of his damaged air- I craft and its crew after a hazar- dous flight of some 1.18 miles after the aircraft had' been attacked." 5ohn Fulton is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Frederick J. Fulton, his father being a foTner Cabinet member in British Columbia and a former member of Parliament at Ottawa, and his mother a former Dominion officer of the Catholic Women's League. He is one of four brothers who are serving in the Canadian Armed Forces. i i Nine of 193 Priests Remain In N00zi Occupied Slovenia more than 90 years old. This information is contained in a detailed report from the Most Rev. Gregory Rozman, Bishop of Ljubljana. One Well Known In V. S. Another of the nine is the Rev. James Cherne, who is well known in Milwaukee and Sheboygan, [ Wis., having been active among the Slovenes in that section o the l country until he left for the "old country," planning to spend his re- maining years in retirement there. He is now active in the ministry again, serving the Slovene Catho- Catholics Face Great Spiritual Privations As Clergy Ejected; Nine Priests Serve 148 Parishes New York. (N.C.W.C.)In that portion of the ii0 of Ljubljana, Slovenia, which has been-occupied by Germany only nine priests are permitted to function t0 according to information received here by the American 51  Parish Relief. The area formerly embraced 148 pstl served by 193 members of the clergy. And of the nine priests remaining all but two stt:i men, one of them, Father Lavtizar of Kranjska Gora, b! out priests, without MasS,  out the Sacraments. The :lack spiritual consolation. ! difficult to obtain permissi0 lies in the vicinity of Bled. . Included in a recently-announ- ced allotment of additional funds for war relief by the Bishops' Relief Committee was $2,000 for Slovenian war sufferers. This sum, it was announced, would be dis- bursed by Bishop Rozman. Nine thousand dollars of the amount was contributed to the Bishops' Relief Fund by the American Slovene Parish Relief. To that sum the Bishops' Relief Committee added $11,000 out of the general fund. "The spiritual damage to the Diocese is, great. More than 200,000 of the faithful are with- a Catholic burial." ' Since most of the parish.. closed and the faithful 'i permitted to congregate  churches even for private  tions, the nine remaining.Pt celebrate Mass twice dailY three times on Sunday.
