" Letters of thanks have just been received by the president of the organization from our Most Rev- erend 2/uxtliary Bishop Albert L. Fletcher and from Rev. Bernard L. Bolds, for material assistance J rendered toward the upport of the Diocesan missions at DeQueen and Forman. A check for $42.50 donated by members of our or- ganization toward the support of these missions having recentIy .been sent to our Most Reverend Auxiliary Bishop. Father Bolds is very appreciative of this as- sistance since Foreman and De- Queen are 30 miles distant and Mass is said in both Missions every Sunday. The number of Catholics in both of these missions is small and most of these are of very limited means. In addition to these missions Father Bolds at- tends to,the spiritual needs of the Catholics at Ashdown, which is 36 miles from DeQueen in the op- f" posite direction from Foreman. Father Bolds assures us that he AMERICAN DAIRY 3027 Grand Fort Smith Arlmnms Compliments of Willard Mirror Co.

To minister to his missions most of the roads traveled by Father Bolds are of gravel which makes the wear and tear of his mission car excessive. Our membership is reminded that the needs of the diocesan missions continue year after year and that the mission we are sup- porting at the Booneville Sana- torium also requires material as- sistance. Our Secretary will wel- come any gift from any individual or society towards the support of our missions. 1911.
