PAGE EIGHT THE GUARDIAN, AUGUST 21, 1942 Sorrowful Mother Chicago.-:On September 20, the Feast of Our Sorrowful Mother, the statue shown above, now in the process of completion in Bed- ford, Indianaa, will be dedicated on tim lawn of the National Shrine of Our Sorrowful Mother, Chicago. According to the Rev. Terence A. Seery, O.S.M., National Direc- tor, the dedication will climax a nine day Novena for the suffering peoples of the occupied countries. The statue of Our Sorrowful Mother is carved from Indiana statuary buff stone. It stands seven feet high. "QUI VIVE?" (Continued from page 1) Bible. At the Council of Carthage In the year 397, the Canon of the old and tile new testament was established and approved by Pope $t. Damasus L The Catholic Church authorities originally col- lected the books of the Dlble from the sacred writings of the early Christians. The Church after much deliberation declared the writings that are contained in the Canon of the old and new testament to be the word of God. The Church guarded and preserved these writ- ings and brought them down through the centuries. At the time of the so-called Reformation, the Protestant church men took the Bible, a,fter discarding the authority of the Catholic Church. They proceeded to change passages and to drop out whole books to suit their purposes. This elimina- tion went on from the day that Luther omitted the Epistle of St. James, because it taught that faith without good vorks is dead, down to the publication of the Shorter Bible issued by authority of the . M. C. A., and Y. W. C. A. This edition was made shorter, in part, by omitting the miracle that Christ worked at Cana. It may be that this was done so that God might not be interpreted as being against the 18th amendment. But even the abridged edition of the Bible which Protestants use teaches many doctrines which they over- look such as the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist, the power of the Keys and the existence of 'urgatory and Hell. Ctholtes are not without blame. Many of them are indifferent to their ignor- ance of the Bible. The Church teaches that they should read it. National Bible Week might help all Christians to know more about the Bible. Who does not remember the not too distant day when signs, prom- inently displayed in hotels and railroad stations invited the read- era to "Call Home Tonight." There was usually an accompanying pic- ture of a happy family gathered i around the telephone talking to l the absent member. Those days are gone for the duration. The telephone companies now adver- ,rise the fact that you should re- frain from putting in long dis- tahoe calls unless the matter is very urgent. It should be a matter of life and death before any one should" attempt to be connected with the city of Washington. The reason for all this change is the war. The telephone lines are in use constantly for official busi- ness and there is no material to install new lines. The telephone had become so much a part of American life that it was a habit. People used the telephone for every reason and for none. ome folks became addicted to 1%. Tey developed what might  PJ he called telephonltis.

(E)--The question of labor is casting a lengthening shadow over Washington. It ap- pears in the wage controversies coming befo,e the War Labor Board, in the practice known as "pirating," by which one employer entices workers away from an- other, and in the proposal to shift employes away from one field of abor to another to expedite war production. One of the most re- cent proposals of this kind is the shifting of gold miners to the copper mines. The problem has many phases. It brings up the question of labor supply, conditions of work and wages, and the authority of the Government to regulate them. The importance of manpower in pro- ductive industry has become sec- ondary only to manpower on the fighting fronts. So far the Government has been reluctant to curtail the right of workers to work" them, where and how they please and for wages that will be acceptable to them. It has followed the rule of deal- ing .with wage questions piecemeal. No general wage standards have been set up. Each case is con- sidered separately. About the only definite policy is that the workers shall have a decent living but that is a vague :formula which de- pends upon a good many things.

For Present The trouble is that wages--labor costs--are all tangled up with price fixing, price ceilings and anti- inflation measures. The merch- ant and manufacturer find that while prices are held down, wages can still go up and sometimes the margin between them gets uncom- fortably small. Neither has the attempt to hook up wage increases with the cost of living, on a sliding scale arrange- ment, been very successful. The complaint is frequently made that under this plan the industrial worker is not expected to make any sacrifice by contributing to war production while the men who do the actual fighting are and the (Continued' from page 1) attendance, with delegations rep- resenting many parishes in the diocese. The opening Mass in Sacred Heart Church on Sunday, August 16, was celebrated by Father Al- phonse, with the Rev.

He cannot increase his income to off- set increased prices. It is doubtful :hat the Govern- ment will change its labor policies. One argument against it is that there is no need to change them. Labor, on the whole, is doing a good job and the delays due to strikes are very few. But it is to be expected that, as the war goes on, there will be more "directives". There will be more regimentation --not only for labor but for every- body. The worker will be as- signed to his task and there is a bare possibility that as time goes on some sort of ceiling may be imposed on wages. For example, the Senate has be- fore it a bill which would author- Fordham U. Plans New War Training Program In Fall New York. {)--Inauguration by the Army of its Enlisted Reserve Corps program at Fordham Uni- versity with the opening of classes in September will mark completion of changes placing the institution on a full wartimes basis. Plans for the program have now been completed. The training will be available to all undergraduates and will lead eventually to com- missions in the Army Air Force and other branches. This program is in addition to the Reserve Of- ficers Training Corps, in existence at the university for many years. The university's new program of accelerated education is aimed to enable students to complete their undergraduate work before join- ing the armed forces. Opportuni- ties will be available in Fordham College, the College of Pharmacy, the School of Law and the School of Education for studats to earn their commissions before gradua- tion. The Navy and the Naval Air Corps will continue their exten- sive program for student volun- teers-the V-1 program for enter- ing freshmen and for sophomores, the V-5 and the V-7. The V-5 program is for Naval Aviation and the V-7 for Navy deck officers. For those interested in civilian defense work, first aid courses in- stituted last winter under the di- rection of Dr. Leonard Piccoli will be continued. Since their in- ception more than 1,000 students members of the faculty, priests, Sisters and Brothers have been trained in courses sponsored by the American Red Cross. CYO Boxers Entertain U. S. Troops In Hawaii Washington. (E)Men of the armed forces on Maul,. Hawaii, are given an opportunity to see topnotch amateur boxers in action through the combined efforts of the Catholic Youth Organization and the USO, according to word received here from the Most Rev. James J. Sweeney, Bishop of Honolulu. Through the cooperation of E. L. Damkroger, of the USO on Maul, Adam F. Ornelles, CYO general director, and Charles McBride, atheletic director of the USO, arrangements have been made for a group of 20 CYO fighters to tour the island under the aus- pices of the USO. Previous 10-bout fights at Scho- field Barracks, Pearl Harbor, Ewa and Kahuku have provided enter- tainment for over 45,001} men of the Army, Navy and defense in- dustries. Industry Apostolate Spreads South Orange, N.J. (The Apostolate of Industry is spread- ing to offices and industrial plants in many parts of the country, according to its founder, the Rev. Dr. John L. McNulty; Dean of the Department of Modern Languages at Seton Hall College here. Units of the Catholic Daughters of America and of the Knights of Columbus are soon to begin using the Apostolate as the basis of their Catholic Action program, Father McNulty said. The Aposto- late. consists of an hour a week study and discussion of Catholic truth by groups of Catholics and non-Catholics from an office or factory, under the guidance of a ing of it.

This is akin to the proposal to shift work- ers from gold mines to copper mines because copper is much more needed at the moment than gold. It is so badly needed, as a matter of fact, that the War Pro- duction Board has halted construc- tion of fifteen partially completed farm projects of the Rural Electri- fication Administration. What is to be done about the workers on these projects is something else. As the war production gets fully under way, the need for workers will become more pressing and the supply is not inexhaustible." Manpower may undergo a sort of rationing, the War Production Board deciding what jobs are to come first and putting an end to the scramble on the part of em- ployers for trained and skilled labor. It all means that "regimentation" will increase as times goes on. It is probable, however, that no further steps will be taken until the elections are over. Congress is reluctant to approve any more restrictions than it can help upon the freedom of the people to do as they please until the votes are counted and show which way the wind of public sentiment it blow- ing. Pontiff Warns Married Couples Of War Perils London. (E)In an audience to newly-married couples, His Holi- !ness Pope Plus XII warned against the dangers of what he called a i temporary widowhood brought !about by the war, according to broadcasts of the Vatican Radio heard here. Separation from home carries with it a danger, the Holy Father said. The rtlind little by little be- comes accustomed to separation and love grows cold. There is a temptation to seek or accept il- legitimate palliatives for the loss of loved ones. Temptation may come from a desire to provide dis- traction from the melancholy of separation. A kind of affection may develop for those in the house in which they had been placed. Such affection must be gov- erned by reason, counselled His Holiness. It must carry with it a certain austerity and be ac- companied by a dignified bearing of manner. He warned people in such a position against sentimen- talism and urged husband and wife to strive to preserve their memories of each other by every means in their power. Thus, the Pope continued, a hus- band and father will have in his room photographs of the loved ones from whom he is separated; mementoes of his Baptism and first Holy Communion and of his mar- riage. Books and various odds and ends about the place will serve constantly to recall memor- ies of his own home. He will people his rodin with those who are awaiting his return. The Pope advised husbands and wives to write regularly to each other, but to keep back little wor- ries and mishaps which are apt to become magnified by separation. They should, however, share real worries, as love is strengthened as much by difficulties as by mutual love. Returning to letter-writing His Holiness pointed out that hand- writing alone will recall as noth- ing else the characteristics of the loved one. 'Best Camper' Trophy Memorial To Late Hero St. Leo, Fla. {E)A trophy in memory of the late Major Gen- eral Clarance Tinker, Catholic Indian hero lost in the Battle of Midway, was awarded to Eugene Scarbrough, Of Fort Lauderdale Fla., chosen the "best camper" at the annual summer camp conduct- ed by the Benedictine Fathers of St. Leo. Gerald Tinker, a son of the General, was one of the camp- ers. Three awards were given at the close of the camp for the "best campers," the Tinker trophy going as the first. Second place Hugh Johnston won another mem- orial trophy, given in honor of a former St. Leo summer camper killed in action with the RCAF over Africa. MORRIS0 N z,.
