The old saying is, "He who lies will steal." Lying and stealing both are acts of dishonesty--one in word, the other in deed. Chil- dren who have little regard for the truth soon will lose respect for honesty; in their behavior, they will become tricky. A little boy came sneaking hurriedly into the house. His father saw that he had a golf ball in his hand. "Where did you get that, Son?" the father asked. "I found it; it is a lost ball." "Are you sure it is a lost ball?" the father persisted. "Yes," the smart young one an- swered brightly; "the man and the caddie are still looking for it in the grass across the road." Such answers may sound cute to some people, but they show the seed of crime is sprouting in young, inventive souls. There are various reasons why young children will tell untruths, eventually. Therefore, The fault may be caused by fear of in little children punishment, by personal vanity, TO HEAR MASS Corrected ae of June 1, 1942 Lady, Help of Chris- at 0:80, 7:00, 8:80 and II :0O o'e]'ook; weekday Masses at 6:00 and :00 Masses at 8:00 and I0:00 Mass at 7:00 o'clock.

Born in San Francisco, June 19, 1898; ordained, June 20, 1925, in St. Mary's Cathedral, San Fran- cisco, pastoral work, Archdiocese of San Francisco; served as Syn. odal Judge of the Archdiocese and Director of the Society for the Propagation of th'e Faith. .Named First Bishop of Diocese of Honolulu, May 20, 1941; con. secrated in SL Mary's Cathedral. San Francisco, July 25. 1941. In- stalled in Cathedral of Our Lady of Peace, Honolulu, Sept. 10, 1941. perhaps a dislike for someone, or' even a natural tendency to exag- gerate, due to a lively imagination; sometimes it arises from a strong sense of loyalty or is due to a mistaken idea of politeness. It al- so is possible that selfishness or a mental abnormality is to be blamed. Whatever the cause of this undesirable trait, it should be discovered and eradicated by convincing the child of the wrong, in itself, and the evil results that follow deceit in any form. Punish- ment should not be resorted to immediately. Public humiliation must be avoided, for this will tend to make the child lose confidence and self-respect. For the mental- y abnormal child who lies, pro- essional advice should be sought. The type that should be closely atched and taken sharply to task is the one who will tell an un- truth for personal gain, especially in detriment to others; such a one is well on his way to stealing. Now, inclination to theft can have its several causes, as lying has. The moral wrong may not have been clearly defined by the par- ents in the child's mind; on the contrary, an undue lust for ac- quisition, without due regard for the means, may have been empha- sized. Children sometimes have a craving for things for which they do not have the purchase price; the desire may become so strong that they forget themselves and steal the coveted goods. Poor health or unhappy home environ- ment may get them started off badly. They fail at school, play hooky, get in with a gang, and, either for gain or for excitement etty thieving is commenced. One little dishonest act, if suc- cessfully carried out, will lead to another more serious. Later on "muggles," "dope" and drink will be used to stimulate courage. Street corners, poolrooms and the resorts of night life become routine social haunts. Then they are on: their way to Atlanta, for they are bound, eventually, to be caught in one of their crimes. Whatever makes a child be dis- honest should be discovered, and steps must be taken to remove that cause. Spiritual advice and help will be of great value. If he has an undue desire for things which he Cannot obtain under normal conditions, his parents ;hould create opportunities where- by he can earn his right to the coveted possessions by legitimate means. If that is not practicable, the stumbling .block may be removed from his path of good behavior by the substitution of something else that will be equally satisfying and is possible of attainment; in any event, the threatening con- dition must be corrected. Children in large families or groups may contract the habit of helping themselves to whatever i they see around the place which strikes their fancy, no matter to whom it belongs. Correct them of this by pointing out that owner- ship must be respected, and that, therefore, they never should take anything without asking the own- er's consent. In this way, evil tendencies will be curbed, and the idea of personal rights of pos- session wil be established. Flames Damage Chicago Church Chicago. (Parishioners at Our Lady of Mercy Church are worshipping in the school hall which will serve as a church until the damage caused by the $15,000 fire is repaired. The Sanctuary was gutted anff the Rev. John Stokes, acting pas- tor, removed the Blessed Sacra- ment and valiJable furnishings. Tubes on the pipe organ were mel- ted by the blaze. The pastor, the Rt. Rev. Msgr. William Cahill one of the pioneer pastors in Chicago, is ill and was not at the rectory when the fire started. Notable Speakers For ' Seminar Washington. ()--The Most Rev. Edward ]VIooney, Archbishop of Detroit and Chairman of tim Ad- ministrative Board of the Nation- al Catholic Welfare Conference, will speak at the Inter-American Seminar on Social Studies, which will holds its initial session in this city on August 24. The Most Rev. Edwin V. O'Hara, Bishop of Kansas City and Episcopal Chairman of the Social Action Department, N. C.W.C., will open the Seminar. The Seminar, sessions of which also will be held at the University of Notre Dame and in Chicago, Detroit, Buffalo and New York City, is sponsored by the National Catholic Welfare Conference and is to be conducted by its Social Action Department. Speaking also at the initial ses- sion will be Dr. Jacques Maritain, distinguished French philosopher now teaching at Columbia Univer- sity, New York City. The names of three additional barticipants of world-wide prom- inence have been added to those who will be heard in the Seminar. They are Dr. Armand0 Camara, of the School of Law of Rio Grands do Sul, Parto Alegre, Brazil; Dr. Heraclito Sobral Pinto, of the Catholic School of Law of Rio de Janciro, and the Rev. Leo Harkins, C.SS.R., an American priest of the Church of Las Victorias, Buen- os Aires. Among thoe who also will be heard at the Washington sessions of the Seminar are the Rt. Rev. Msgr. John A. Ryan, Director of the N.C.W.C. Department of Social Action; the Rt. Rev. Msgr. Francis J. Haas, Dean of the School of Social Sciences, Catholic Univer- sity of American; Dr. Julio Tobar Donoso, President of Action Cato- lica, Quite, Ecuador, and Dr. Don Raul Maestri, of Havana who is prominent in Catholic Social Ac- tion in Cuba. God put a bit of beauty in this and a bit of pleasure in that, a bit of love in one thing and a bit of joy in another, but the full meas- ure of each, which makes the greatest contentment man knows, He put only into home. Bernadette Book Leads In Survey New York. (:)--"The Song of Bernadette," by Franz Werfel, continues to hold first place in the Book Log, monthly report of what Catholics are reading, pub- lihed in America, weekly review i edited here by the Fthers of the i Society of Jesus. Th July survey lists as the most notable change in thc Log the ad= i vance of "Faith the Root", by lSarbara Fleury, from eighth to third place. The July standing is as follows: "The Song of Bernadette (Vik- ing); "The Mass of Brother Mi- chel," by Michael Kent (Bruce); "Faith the Root" (Dutton); "Fast by the Road," by John 'Moody (Macmillan); "The Man Who Got Even with God," by Father Ray- mond (Bi'uce); "Seventeenth Sum- mer," by Maureen Daly (Dodd, Mead); "And Down the Days," by the Rev. John L. Bonn (Macmil- lan); "The Catholic Pattern," by Thomas Woodlock (Simon and Schuster); "Rig for Church," by the Rev. William A. Maguii'e (Macmillan); and "This War Is the Passion," by Caryll House- lander (Sheed and Ward). Mexican Priests' Right As Property Owners Upheld Mexico City. ()--The Supreme Court has ruled that priests in Mexico have the right to acquirg and administer property as in- dividuals; also, that schools of sciences, arts and crafts in which religion enters into the teaching only in an incidental fashion, are not subject to nationalization even when priests are teachers. This ruling has an important bearing on property titles and the lengthy docket of appeals growing out of "mtionalization of prop- erty" cases since the passage of the law in the fall of 1936. The Supreme Court has ruled that the law denies priests property rights only in cases where they acquire or administer property as repre- sentatives of the Church. The fact that a building houses a school conducted by Catholics does not warrant its seizure as national property. The law provides, the ruling says, that buildings used for the "administration, p'opaga- tion or teaching of a Religion" are subject to nationalization, but this does not hold true where Catho- licism, for example, is merely in- cidental to the teaching of scmnces, arts and crafts.
