THE GUARDIAN, AUGUST 27, 1943 Warner-Brown Hospital, E1 Dorado, Arkl K_ of c. Ask Consideration Of Italy's Religion Cleveland. (E)--Two resolutions calling upon the United States Government to insist that the Ca- tholic faith and customs of the Warner-Brown Hospital of E1 Dorado, in charge of the Sisters of Mercy, of Little Rock, is situated in the center of a spacious lawn a few blocks from the center of the business district. The hospital enjoys the greatest respect of the community in its great work of charity. that he had undertaken to make a reservatioin in London, find the connecting train and make anoth- er reservation in Lancashire. The next man had a different problem. It was his mother's birthday on Tuesday. He remem- bered it a month ago and then forgot it. What could he do? "How about sending her some flowers?" Frank suggested. "Good idea if they go by air" BEST WISHES FROM EL DORADO LAUNDRY AND CLEANING COMPANY grinned the other. "That's what they do--more or !less", Frank said, and arranged things. Another Had Long Leave The third man had a long leave due and wanted ideas as to what to do with it. He had no friends or relatives on this side. I check- ed this case through London later and found that the man was sent as the guest of a family living in the heart of the country. These are just a few of the problems the Supervisors have to handle. There are such things as tracing relatives; fixing things up with a priest after a careless life; getting the news of relatives at homeand a hundred and one little things that come along to puzzle a man who is out of his element. One little thing I noticed in the K.C. Hotel, at this place was a room fitted with electric irons and equipped with tables so that men who worry about creasing their trousers can look after them- selves. And there was a laundry service. There are four organizations in the field, all working in harmony. Besides the Knights there are the PAGE SEVEN Card. Hlond Lauds Project To Train Priests In U. S. To Supply Polish Dioceses Geo. W.

Today the four organizations are work- ing here with money supplied by he Canadian Government.

Detroit. ()--The plan to train future priests for the despoiled Latin dioceses of Poland at the Seminary of SS. Cyril and Methodius, at Orchard Lake, Mich., is acclaimed a "magnanimous.offer" by His Eminence August Cardinal Hlond, Primate of Poland, in a letter ent to the Most Rev. Edward Mooney, Archbishop of Detroit and Chairman of the Administrative Board of the National Catholic Welfare Conference. The letter from Cardinal Hlond, which was received by Arch- bishop Mooney through Holy See channels, expressed confidence that "the generous appeal of the Bishops of the United States will meet with a ready response from families of Polish origin or de- scent" and "will, with God's grace, inspire a good number of "Whereas the placing of the lwell disposed young men to pre- control of the affairs of the peo-/pare themselves for the priest- ples of Italy in the hands of these / hood" to labor in the land of their groups may tend to impose Anti-/forefathers.
