PAGE TWO Normal Enrolll00ent Expected At Benedictine Academy Subiaco.--Applications by mail at Subiaco Academy indicate that the enrollment for the new term beginning Sept. 8 will be about normal, the Rev. Clement Schmidt, director of studies, said Sunday. Father Clement is busy arranging the new study schedules and pas- sing on applications, ordering books, and making similar prepar- ations. Parents intending to send their sons in the fall should make definite arrangements soon in order to give the boys as well as the school the best chance to Japan May 'Guarantee' Tolerance New York. (E)--Cooperation with its policies is the price Japan de- mands of religious groups in "the co-prosperity sphere," if they wish to enjoy "an attitude of tolerance" from the invaders, it is asserted in a radio broadcast from Tokyo heard here. Representing the editorial com- ment of the Japanese Times and Advertiser on "the religious prob- lems in the co-prosperity sphere," the broadcast said the attitude shown by the United Nations t6- ward religious roups in East Asia "fell into two categories." "They either deliberately adopted an absolute indifference, with the view of avoiding needless friction among the inhabitants," the edi- torial said, "or they carried on large-scale religious propaganda campaigns in pursuit of strong policies." The paper added that "the works of a hostile character in East Asia by Britain, the United States and The Netherlands must be rectified." "However," the editorial con- tinues, "toward those religious bodies willing to cooperate with the Japanese authorities, the lat- ter will adopt an attitude of toler- ance or give them necessary aid for freedom of religious faith if in accordance with Japan's estab- lished policy." All But Three Clmrches In Metz Closed By Nazis London. (E)--Special measures of oppression have been taken against the Church by Nazi occupation authorities in the Alsace-Lorraiie area, it is reported by the Polish Catholic press agency, KAP. Under a new decree, published in Strasbourg, it is stated, all festi- vities and ceremonies of a religious character are forbidden except the celebration of Holy Mass in the few churches allowed by the Nazis to remain open. For any other kind of religious ceremony a special permission of the authorities of occupation is required. Such permission, ac- cording to the report, is rarely given and an exorbitant fee must be paid. In Metz all religious schools and all but three of the churches have been closed, KAP reports.

Coach R. P. Maus stated Sunday !that he has five dates fixed on his contemplated 9-game football schedule and is now arranging de- tails for the other games. The Trojans will have a light but probably a fast team. It will have only two veterans in the line, and not more than one in the backfield. Indications are that the Trojans may have one of the hardest schedules in their history in proportio n to their strength according to advance diognosis. Games definitel arranged are with teams believed to be strong this season. They are Stuttgart, Fayetteville, Russellville, Catholic High of Little Rock, and Van Buren. All but Van Buren have beaten or tied Trojan teams with- in the past five years, even when the Benedictines could boast star- studded teams. With a squad of highly problematic strength com- ing up, the old Trojan fight will have to be there in abundance to see the Maus men through. Boys expected to give the Tro- jans power in sports for the com- ing term include especially Joe Spinnenweber, Little Rock; Phil and Eddie Herlein, and Carl Lue- ken, Helena; Joe Siebenmorgen, Morrison Bluff; Frank Perona, Jr., Tontitown; J. Julius Burn- side, Lake Village and Little Rock: Chick Nolte, Subiaco and John Nolte, a brother to Chick; James Murphy, Fort Worth; and Chuck Barclay, Tulsa.

Weicher, head of the new Blytheville council, No. 2857, is good news even though belated.) Mr. Reynolds writes: "I want to thank you for your kindness in sending me a copy of your news item, which you mailed to The Guardian, and I assure you I will be looking forward to the next issue of that paper to see the beginning of your publicity activities, which I hope will continue. "Subscribers to The Guardian is a move in the right direction and I would suggest that your Catholic Activity Committee adopt as one of its major activities a campaign for the increase of circulation of The Guardian among your council members. "One Hundred per cent sub- scription by council No. 2857, would enable you to reach your entire membership with notices of special meetings or important propositions through publication in The Guardian, and thus eliminate the necessity of sending out in- dividual letters. "I really enjoyed my visit to Blytheville and I am grateful for the hospitality which I experi- enced, and the very enjoyable af- ternoon spent under the shady wil- low trees at Brother Stemac's. "Give my regards to all, and best wishes for the success of Our Lady of Victory Council. Fraternally your, J. P. Reynolds." Belgian Prelate Protests, Nazis' Sunday Labor Order London.
