Second Vice President Peter P. Hiegel. Conway, Third Vies President In order to better acquaint our membership with the aims and purposes of our organization, we will reproduce each week one of the resolutions adopted at the recent State Convention at Mor- rilton. Resolution No. 1, is as iollbws: "The Catholic Union of Ark- ansas in 53rd. annual convention assembled, does herewith again extend to our Holy Father, Pope Plus XII, heartfelt felicitations and the assurance of our prayers. It is our hope and we implore God lhat the Holy Father's efforts in behalf of world peace may suc- ceed and that peace once more will reign on earth and His posi- tion as Supreme Pontiff be rec- ognized by all peoples." A number of affiliated societies have not as yet remitted their per capita tax for the year end- ing with our State Convention. We urge such societies to remit this per capita tax immediately to Bruno Lienhart, State See'y- Treas., Morrillon. Miss Catherine Siebenmorgen of Conway, was the winner of the Catholic Women's Speaking Contest held in connection with the State Convention at Morril- ton, instead of Miss Anna Sieben- morgen of Morrison Bluff as er- roneously reported last week. Father Lawrence Hoyt's ad- dress at the Morrilton Conven- tion as Guest Speaker on "Agri- culture the Key to Economic, So- cial and Religious Welfare" was outstanding and gave a clear pic- ture of agriculture. All in at- tendance enjoyed this address very much. Such societies that have not a copy of the 1942 convention pro- ceedings or those wanting addi- tional copies may obtain them by writing to the President, Carl Mcurer, or G H. Kenkel, Brink- ley. It is planned to print the 1943 convention proceedings with- in the next thirty days, so that all members may acquaint them- selves with all details of the Mor- rilton convention. ' The sermon preached at the High Mass opening the conven- tion at Morrilton, by Father An- thony Lachowsky, C.S.Sp., spirit- ual director of the Catholic Union "The Parish and the Catholic Church" was very clear and in- structive. It will be reproduced in the 1943 convention proceed- ings. The 1944 State Convention to be held at Paris, on the Sunday proceeding Labor Day, will be streamlined to the Nth., since it will be held all in one day. It Our Lady of Good Counsel Novena for Peace and Victory will be held every Sunday after- noon at three o'clock. Novena to St. Anthony is held every Tuesday morning after all Masses. Novena to the Little Flower and the Blessed Sacrament is held every Friday night at 7:30. Sunday is communion Sunday for all members of the St. An- thony Sodality. They will re- ceive at the 7:00 o'clock Mass. The St. Anthony Sodality will meet next Thursday night at 8:00 o'clock in the school hall. The annual bazaar of Good Counsel Parish will be held the irst week of October. The date will be given soon and lhe plans for the event. The Second Seminary burse fund from Good Counsel Parish is now $870.00. The Good Counsel Unit of The National Council of:Catholic Wo- men will meet Monday afternoon, Sept. 20th, at 2 o'clock at the home of Mrs. Granville Sutton, 1617 Battery Street. will take a great deal of planning and preconvention work to get all business transacted in the time allotted. However with careful planning it should prove a very successful convention. Ten well prepared resolutions of the National Catholic Women's Union program were adopted by the Arkansas State Branch at their silver jubilee convention at Morrilton, September 5th & 6th. Resolutions which gained par- ticular discussion in sessions and considerable publicity in the press during the National Convention were those pertaining to decency of dress, opposition to all forms of race prejudice, juvenile delin- quency and instructing Catholic youth of this country to co-oper- ate with war programs. Monsignor Strauss, National Spiritual Director of'the CWU said the greatest resoultion of the Convention was the American Bishop's Peace Plan. He en- couraged these points be dis- cussed at district meetings and suggested that pastors give a series of lenten sermons on them. This five point peace plan was the text of Bishop Muench's ad- dress at the National Convention at which time the BiShop stressed a peace based on justice and char- try--stressing that ,ltblic opinion would go a long way towards forming a just peace. There- fore he said it was our duty to study and put into practice the declaration of principles taken from the Pope's Peace Plan which are based on justice and charity for all nations. Archbishop Spellman, Episco- pal Protector of the NCWU said the planning of peace will be the hardest civic task any group of men ever faced in any genera- tion and that prayer and sacrifice must accompany it. A copy of the resolution on our Holy Father will be sent along with a Peter's Pence collection by the national organization to Pope Pius XII for :His anniversary next March. Other resolutions adopted con- cerned Missions, Divorce, Divine- ly Planned Parenthood, Danger to Private Schools, and the of- ficial prayer of the CWU--The Act of Consecration to the Im- maculate Heart of Mary. As in other years these resolu- tions will be discussed and acted upon during the year at the var- ious district league meetings. During the day when we have received Holy Communion we can say to ourselves: "I had the privilege of receiv'ag my God this morning. My eyes looked upon the Body of Christ. My heart was the resting place of my Savior. O let me tell Him dwell- ing in the Tabe-nacle how glad I am for this favor, how much i ap- preciate His loving mercy." H ] i i The Rt. Rev.

()"Christian Sacri- fice" will be the theme of the annual Liturgical Week, a three- day meeting of liturgical leaders from various parts of the country to be held October 12 to 14 at Holy Name Cathedral. The meet- .ngs have for their purpose the promotion of liturgical knowledge and practice under the sponsor- ship of ecclesiastical authority. This year's topic will be "Liturgy and the Spirit of Christian Sacri- fices?' The Most Rev. Samuel A. Stritch, Archbishop of Chicago, will sponsor the program which is being prepared by the Benedic- tine Liturgical Conference. The Rev. Michael Ducey, O.S.B., sec- retary of the Conference, is now in Chicago supervising the arrange- ments under the direction of the Rt. Rev. Msgr. Joseph P. Morrison, rector of Holy Name Cathedral. Liberty Ship Named For Heywood Broun Baltimore. (  The Liberty ship, Heywood Braun, named for the late newspaper columnist and president of the American News- paper G'uild, who was converted to the Catholic faith shortly be- fore his death, was launched be- fore a Labor Day crowd at the Bethlehem-Fairfield shipyards. The vessel was christianed by Mrs. Braun, .widow of the colum- nist. John Green, president of the Deplores Protestant Propaganda And Dearth of Catholic Clergy San Salvador. (E)--A crisis faces the Diocese of Santa Ann, Criteria, Catholic weekly of the Capital, says in a recent issue. This crisis the paper attributes to a two-fold cause: Protestant propaganda and a dearth of Catholic clergy. The Diocese has only one priest for every 15,000 inhabitants. Aftra discussing the cultural and economic activity and general progress at SanLa Aria, the weekly takes up the matter of "the crisis Anniversary Mass For Fr. Flaherty Said At St. Mary's in the Christian life which threat- ens the whole Diocese." "Pro- testantism has found a propitious clime in the western section of our country," it says. "Statistics before us are very significant but we believe the actuality is greater. The American Baptist Home Mis- start Society, which has pastors in twelve towns of the Republic, has been able to place five of them in towns of the Diocese of Santa Ann. In the city of Santa Ana there is a well-equipped Baptist College with an enrollment of 250 students, and it is planned to establish there a large coeduca- tional boarding school of high school standing, which is expect- ed to cost $30,000. Also there has been talk recently of building a large hospital at Chalchuapa, li- nanced by North American phy- sicians. "But, we repeat, the reality is even more somber. Entire val- leys on the slopes of Santa Ana Volcano have lost the Faith of our fathers. And to check this moldering of the most venerated of our treasures, there is no Ca- tholic clergy." Lima. ()--"Freedom of worship is not liberty to wage anti-nation- al and socially destructive cam- paigns," Verdades, the Catholic weekly of Lima, says in an edi- torial discussing the disastrous effect upon the Good Neighbor policy of intensified Protestant propaganda in Latin America. "This country does not need an ersatz Christianity; it was Chria tianized centuries ago . . . What it des need is to fortify its Christianity, that is to say, to have better means for promoting and intensifying the practice of the Catholic Religion, a greater number of priests, and more Ca- tholic missionaries." The editorial cites as particu- larly offensive the Protestant mis- sionaries' insistence upon "classi- fying us among infidel peoples, among savages to be converted." "Categorically, let us repeat," it concludes, "that those among us whose mission it is to intensify the cooperation and coordination between our country and the great republic to the north of the hemis- phere, ought to make a note about this matter, about preventing the persistence of this work of dis- coordination. We rely upon out" fellow-Catholics in fhe United States, who have ah'eady upheld us in our campaign for the pre- servation of our national unity, t aid us and cooperate with us in making their fellow-country- men comprehend how injurious to continental harmony it is for them to assure the support within our fold, with their money and their personnel, of organisms which have as their objective the de- Catholicizing, which is the de- Industrial Union of Marine and Christianizing, of our ellow- Shipbuilding Workers of America, countrymen." (CIO), declared in his address that if Broun were alive today "his pen would be raised in burn- ing anger against the forces of re- THE LEADER action and oppression both at home and aboard." 178 Forgn Mi:slon Students At Maryknoll New York. ()Enrollment of 425 Cherry St. foreign mission students at the I major Maryknoll Seminary in as-! sining, N.Y., has reached an all- Helena, Arkansas time high with 178 registered for the semester just begun.

Helena, Arkansas Little Rock.-- An anniversary Mass for the Rev. John A. Fla- herty was held at Mt. St. Mary's Academy on August 24. The Very Rev. Msgr. T. L. Keany celebrated the High Mass of Re- quiem, which was attended by the sisters and students of the academy. Father Flaherty was a former pastor of St. Joseph's Church, at Fayetteville, and prior to that assignment, was connected with Little Rock College. He was ac- tive in missionary work in the diocese in his lifetime. Courageous Acts Of Priests In Train Wreck Told Philadelphia. (E)--Tales of the courageous activities of Catholic priests in risking their lives to ad- minister to the victims of the wreck of the Congressional Limit- ed, were recounted here in the wake of the wreck which took a death toll of 78. The wreck occurred in the midst of a crowded residental section and priests, prepared to admin- ister the Sacrament of Extreme Unction, were among the first to reach the scene. A number of the dead, dying and injured were taken to the parish hall of neighboring St. Joachim's Church, where priests administered the last rite to the dying in the basement and then went upstairs to care for the in- iured. One of the most touching stories )f the wreck concerned an in- jured soldier, who had been taken to Frankfort Hospital. He lay on an emergency ward table as a surgeon prepared to operate. A priest and a volunteer worker stood beside the table. Suddenly the soldier looked at the priest and grabbed his hand. He gasp- ed." "Take good care of me, Father, my mother would want it that way." As the priest was giving assurance that good care was being taken, the soldier died. Invest in youth. It is sound and safe. It is vital and neces- sary. Dividends will be paid in Eternity,. '.
