(Continued from page 1) quents, that have been incarcer- ated, have come from broken homes. These homes have been broken not by poverty, but by selfishness, infidelity, and the fail- ure to understand and respect the minority of the nmrrige bond. In recent years there has been too great a desire in general, to pos- semi the luxuries of Hie and to look upon them as necessities. Man was not made for this world. Yet the people of this day have been trying to satiate that craving, that &ll men have for happiness, with the husks of nmtertal possessions. As a matter of experience the God- fearing poor have always been happier, even in this world, than the rich. Pleasure is comparative. A proper mixture of work and recreation makes for a happy life. A full pay envelope will not make loving parents, good children or a haRPY home. If God is the Head Of each house, happiness and good- neso will be found, though it may be difficult to make ends meet. Abnormal times bning forth mny situations that call for thought. At the present time there bs vigorous campaign to encourage People to "share their cars." There i are many Instances in which this can be done with a saving of rub- bet and gasoline. Neighbors, who Classmates Meet By Chance In Cairo Church Ottawa. (g)--Thousands of miles from home, two former classmates of St. Patrick's College found themselves sitting together in a Catholic church at Cairo, Egypt. When Flying Officer Relix French, son of Dr. and Mrs. F. A. French, of Ottawa, took his place in the Cairo church he had no idea that Flight Sergeant J. R. McGovern, son of the late James McGovern and Mrs. McGovern was anywhere :in the Middle East. They told of their chance meeting in letters to their homes. Another letter shows that Cana-. dian Catholic airmen are fully ap- preciative of opportunities to at- tend Mass and receive the Sacra- ments. It was received by the Rev. T. Hussey, parish priest of Seaforth, Ont., from Flight Lieut. Edmund Daly, Canadian attached to the Royal Air Force in the Mid- dle East. Describing the visit of an R.A.F. priest to his camp and welcoming the opportunity of hearing Mass, are going to work at the same time, can help each other to save vital necessities of travel byl doubling up, Allowances are made 1 for this in the states where gaso-[ line is rationed. However, this] Is no time for such demonstra- tions as lmve taken place in some cities, notably Chicago. The news- paimrs have reported that organ- lzed gangs have made it their brininess to hoot and "boo" at every motorist who happens to be riding alone. There are persons who must use a ear and often must ride alone when attending to some important business. Dec- tors and priests can not very well go around looking for passengers when they receive urgent sick calls. There are some people who mind every one's business but their own. Times like these bring out some queer notions of patriotism. Motorists can not be compelled to pick up strangers who happen to be going their way. This would be to adopt one of the policies that we condemn and are fighting against. Some folks would have us believe that It Is a patriotic 'duty to pick UP men in uniform. This is far from true. The uni- form is no guarantee that the per- sOn who wears it is g soldier. Every day we read of men who are ar- rested for impersonating service- ttken. Even among the men who ae 9 actually in the servico there are imtential criminals. Some have already disgraced their country's' uulform by being guilty of crim- llml acts.

Daly wrote, in part, as follows: "He'gave us a lovely little talk and we couldn't help feel how lucky we were to have our Faith to carry us through where others wouldn't appreciate the satisfac- tion of attending Mass, Confes- sion and Communion. "For 18 months now I have been grabbing at the odd opportunity to receive the Sacraments, some- times going for months without them and it only dawns on you then how much you relied on them before. It's like a person who, for the first time in his life, finds himself without food or water. His real appreciation only then dawns on him." REQUIEM (Continued from page 1) sisters, Sister M.

Priest Rent Director For Pittsburgh Area Pittsburgh. (E)--Appointment of the Rev. Charles Owen Rice, Di- rector of St. Joseph's House of Hospitality, as Area Rent Director for the Pittsburgh defense area has been announ'ced by Federal Price Administrator Leon Hender- son. Father Rice, the only priest thus far named to one of these posts, has been director of St. Joseph's House of Hospitality for the past four years, and chaplain of the Pittsburgh Chapter of the Associa- tion of Catholic Trade Unionists for the same period. He has been active in the field of labor rela- tions and in other phases of the Catholic social movement, nd was one of the organizers of the Pit- tsburgh Fair Rent Committee, the members of which chose him as their chairman last February. His new position will make him re- sponsible for the enforcement of the laws applying to rent limita- tions in southwestern Pennsyl- vania, a territory practically iden-" tical with the Diocese of Pitts- burgh. Accepting the appointment with the permission of the Most Rev. Hugh C. Boyle, Bishop of Pitts- burgh, Father Rice will continue to act as director of St. Joseph's House of Hospitality and to re- side there. The appointment is for the terms of the war emer- gency. Prize Awarded For Novel On Mexican Priest London. (--The Hawthornden Prize for 1940--awarded belatedly because the war had scattered the committee members---has been bestowed on Graham Greene for "The Power and the Glory" a novel about a Mexican priest. Graham Greene, son of a scliool- master, was born in 1904. He served on the staff of The Time for some years and has since writ- ten several notable books, mainly novels and observations on his travel s . Hegarty Drug Company 4th and Main Sis.

Meanwhile, however, some Washingtonians have vigorously criti- cized, in opinions expressed in one local newspaper, the artistic merits of the three models which so far have survived the board's judgment of the 64 models originally submitted in the competition. The judges have invited the sculptors of these three models to submit revisions, on the basis of which another judgment will be made. i The Rev. Dr. John Keating Cartwright, pastor of the Church of the Immaculate Conception of !this city; the Very Rev. Ignatius Smith, O.P., of the Catholic Uni- versity of America, and the Rev. Edmund A. Walsh, S.J., Vice- President of Georgetown Univer- sity, are among those whose com- ments on the three surviving mo- dels have been quoted by the i Times-Herald here. Their quoted! opinions contain such phrases as these: "We are threatened with three bad cases of Epstein," "the imagination of the artists must have suffered from a convulsion produced by the war," and "I simply shuddered when I saw them." Dr. Cartwright said he had not seen the actual models, as it is understood none of he others had. Their* opinions were based on news pictures. Their Own Conceptions The same paper printed ex- pressions attributed to a half- score other priests and laymen, all ,of which expressed dissatis- faction with the models as repre- sented in photographs They at- tacked the three surviving models on the basis of their "modern" art, of their being "lacking in de- votion and inspiration," and of their not "measuring up" to con- ceptions which the speakers had of what a representation of Christ, the Light of the World, should be. It is interesting that Emily Gen- auer, art critic, writing in the New York World-Telegram touched up- on much of the ground covered by these criticisms, but for the pur- pose of lauding the whole under- taking. She said the photographs !o the three surviving models "seem extremely interesting and meritorious and inspired." Miss Genauer added that artists "must realize now" that "their assump- that when they work for Church they must key their ,ork to the lowest common deno- minator of stale and outmoded classism is false." Especially enthusiastic in her praise of the manner in which the competition i' being conducted i Miss Genauer says it is "one of the juiciest plums to tantalize Ameri- can sculptors or some time," and commends the organization of the contest and the excellence of the board of judges. Miss Genauer quotes Maurice LavanoUx, Secretary of the Lit- urgical Arts Society, which is con- ducting the competition as saying "the important thing for artists to realize is that within the limi- tations of appropriateness and de- cency, the Church allows a great deal of liberty to the artist," and that "when the artist admits that ecclesiastical authorities have a right to expect the best and when the authorities, in turn, admit that the artist is worthy of his hire and that talent must be adequately compensated, then we will be on !the right road." The World-Telegram writer as- serts that this offers hope that the "'art' that has made many in- teriors ugly enough to make the angels as well as the art critics !cry" is "on the way out." Difficult Asaignment The Evening Star of Washington, i D. C., said editorially that "in theory it ought to be relatively easy for a gifted sculptor to create a monumental statue of the Savi- our of Mankind as the Light of the World," but that the competition i for the statue to stand in front of ]the N.C:W.C. headquarters build- ing has shown "how difficult such :an assignment is in terms of fact." Terming the challenge of the work "compelling," the editorial says the 664 competing artists !found "that clay is clay--not an :electric medium to be waved into the semblance of the Holiest Per- son the world has ever known." "Nothing conclusive as been de- cided," the editorial continues.

Nazis Assail Dutch Bishop For Teaching New York. (E)--A broadcast from Vatican City in Polish heard here stated that the Most Rev. John de Jong, Archbishop of Ut- recht, Holland, has been assailed by Nazi authorities for issuing a warning to Catholic doctors against sterilization practices. Archbishop de Jong, the broad'- caster stated, told Catholic mem- bers of the medical profession that since Dutch authorities had been deprived of control over their associations, they themselves must be on the lookout against attempts to force them to perform work conflicting with Catholic teaching PRAY THE MASS (Popular Missals For Everybody) No. 208-St. Andrew Daily Missal Black cloth, semi- flexible, burnished red edges, size 4x6 inches, India paper, 1,195 pages, 170 illustrations, in box... , . . $2.00 This St. Andrew Daily Missal (very popular) is particularly easy to learn to use in following the Mass.

(Guest column by a young Dal- las County, Iowa, farmer and member of a Catholic Action Far- mer cell.) The Oasis Bill had been in the big city for over a year, working at first one job and then another. Tonight he was sitting in a small care wait- ing for the wafter to bring the meal he had ordered. This time it was pork chops; yesterday it had been roast beef; tomorrow it might be chicken. But a year of restaurant eating had done some- thing to Bill's appetite, just as the laundry had done something to his shirts. No matter what he ordered, it would taste just about the same. As he waited passively (his palate not anticipating any plea- sant surprise) he glanced at the sign that hung over the care door. "THE OASIS" Below the name was a picture of a beautifulspot, deeply shaded by green-leafed trees, carpeted with green grass, and watered' by a small stream where wild animals stopped for a drink. As Bill mused over this sign, he thought of stories he had heard and read of beautiful places seen by people half dead from thirst and hunger in the the farm for the city." At that Bill turned his tM! to another "oasis." He th0 the little plot of a farm he left a year ago when he # live in town.
