Hemp Weed Hemp, a rank growing weed in the ditches and fence rows in peacetime, has become a vital war crop. It is being grown to pro- vide rope for battleships and oth- er implements of war. Growing the weed as a crop looked a little silly to some farmers at first. Many were skeptical. They had known hemp only as marijuana, a harmful narcotic, a weed smok- ed by drug addicts. Government officials told farm- ers the war had cut off imports of Manila hemp and sisal fiber. Hemp was needed to substitute for these. Farmers need not wor- ry about growing a narcotic. The plant would be cut at the pollen stage before it would make good marijuana. Fears about seeding their farms to weeds, or about weed seed scattering to neighbor- ing farms were groundless. Cut- ting at the proper time prevents this. Now, growers and non- growers are enthusiastic. They believe it will become an im- portant cash crop even after the war for meeting domestic needs for cordage and twine and as a possible substitute for flax in manufacturing linen. In its wild state, hemp grows short and stalky, and branches considerably as most other weeds. Fiber from these plants is vir- tually worthless. Under cultiva- tion and planted thickly it grows from eight to twelve feet tall, its branching checked. Some of the growers reasoned a weed would grow well on any .soil. According- ly they planted their hemp on run-down soil, the poorest on the farm.' Now they realize that hemp is an excellent barometer of soil fertility. It may be planted in an ordi- nary wheat drill, broadcast, or sown by an endgate seeder. Seed- ing may be sandwiched in be- tween oats sowing and corn plant- ingabout the latter part of April. The crop is harvested in late August. After it is cut, it is allowed to lie on the ground and ret from ten days to two months. When completely ret- ted, stalks are tied in bundles and hauled to the mill for grading and processing. Interesting to grow- ers is the fact that the pulp, in- ner stalk, or hurd of the hemp is used for fuel and is suitable for bedding livestock. Rv. Leo T. Entringer, pastor of Sacred Heart Church at Grun- anticipates no refusal since he says he will expect a $5 bill from those too busy at the time. Father Entringer favored the hemp program right in the be- ginning from a patriotic stand- point. When the sign-up lagged he accompanied Lyle Haws of the AAA committee on a tour for three days and the two signed up more than 500 acres for the pro- gram. He plans on using the profit from the hemp venture to apply on the $8,000 church debt. He rented 62 acres from a mem- Plumbing And Heating -k REPAIR SPECIALIST GEe. M.

And he took his ring from his own hand, and gave it into his hand: and he put upon him a robe of silk, and put a chain of gold about his neck. And he made him go up into his second chariot, the crier proclaiming that all should bow their knee before him, and that they should know he was made governor over the whole land of Egypt. And the king said to Joseph: I am Pharao; without thy commandment no man shall move hand or foot in all the land of Egypt. And 'he turned his name, and called him In the Egyptian tongue, the saviour of the world. And he gave him to wife Asen- eth the daughter of Pntiphare priest of Heliopolis. Then Joseph went out to the land of Egypt: (Now he was thirty years old when he stood before king Pharao), and we went round all the countries of Egypt. And the fruitful- ness of the seven years came: and the corn being bound up into sheaves was gathered together into the barns of Egypt. And all the abundance of grain U. S. Soldiers In AI rico Take Up Collection At Masses In Bombed Church New York. (E)Another instance of the deeply religious spirit of Catholic American troops and their spontaneous generosity to ruined mission churches aboard is related by the Rev. Albert C.M. Steffens in a recent letter to the Military Ordinariate. The New York priest has been decorated for valor in performing his duties as an Army Chaplain. After advancing four days and four nights along roads bombed by enemy planes, the troops ministered to by Father Steffens reached "a certain place" in Africa with- out a single casualty on the Sat- Noted urday within the Octave of the Epiphany, Father Steffens wrote. Jumper Joins With the cooperation of the lo- cal Cure, a French Oblate of Mary, Father Steffens arranged to have five Mases offered in the main church and mission chapel of the town. "Not a word in regard to any collection was uttered either by the Cure at his Masses or by me at the Masses I was privileged to celebrate. Nevertheless, in all instances, just as a pretty little French youngster commenced to take up the collection, a couple of soldiers arose, gently seated her, and with helmets in hand, re- ceived the thousands of franc notes, literally hurled at them. Beside being prompted by a de- sire to acknowledge God's good- ness, manifested in the Divine protection and guidance so long enjoyed, our soldiers also were motivated by a desire to provide funds necessary for alterations and repairs for which, as a result of the havoc of war, the church- es were sorely in need. The steeple missing from one of these churches, the shattered windows and shell-ridden roof of the oth- er, gave ample evidence of their distress. "In the evening, while discuss- ing the happenings of the day, the Cure expressed his heartfelt thanks for the francs with which his mission had been showered almost 75,000. The stars that identify American vehicles, he said, were like the Star in the East that guided the Magibut didn't we come from the West?" ber of the parish, paying cash rent. The remaining ten acre., were donated. Father Entringer personally supervised and help- ed with the planting, even riding the seeder. Farmers are cooperating by grouping themselves into what the hemp growers call "rings." Each ring has a total hemp acreage of 130 to 140 acres. The rings are formed to provide an orderly method for harvesting, biniing and delivering the crop.

(E)Holder of the world's altitude parachute jump- ing record for women and mother of two sons in the armed service, Mrs. Marie McMillin, of St. Joan of Arc parish, Jackson Heights, N. Y., has entered the Women's Army Corps. She is in basic training at the Third WAC Train- ing Center at Fort Oglethorpe, Ga. Mrs. McMillin set her record at the International Air Races in Cleveland in 1932, jumping 24,800 feet. For the last 13 years she has been making parachute jumps at public events, having 396 jumps to her credit. She also has a pri- vate pilot's license, which she received in 1932. One of her sons is with a para- chute battalion of the Marines and another is training lo become a bombardier. Mrs. McMillin is an active member of the Auxiliary of the Brooklyn Diocesan Convert Apostolate. ,, : Priest Makes Jump With Paratroopers In Airport Capture Albany. (E)Capt. John Poers, of Oneonta, N. Y., a priest of the Diocese of Albany, was with the U.S. Army paratroopers who i made the lowest mass parachute jump recorded in battle and cap- tured the Markham Valley air strip west of Lae in New Guinea dispatches revealed. The story of the jump was writ- ten by First Lieut. Monte Kleban assistant iublic relations officer on Gen. Douglas MacArthur's staff, who jumped with the para- troopers. Lieut. Kleban, Father Powers and 15 others, loaded down with equipment, made the jump from one plane. Each car- ried 60 pounds of equipment, the story said. The article related: "A Catholic chaplain, Capt. John Powers, of Oneonta, N. Y., threw himself beside me. He was soaking wet from sweat. "How goes it, Father?' I asked. 'We made it all right,' he ans- wered. One man called out: 'Say, Father, don't you think the Japs will take a dim view of our do- ing this on Sunday?' The chap- lain smiled and replied, 'The bet- ter the day, the better the deed.' The chaplain carried a large kit marked with a Cross. 'It's my Mass outfit,' he said, 'I have Holy Oil for the last anointing, other equipment and, I hope, the grace of God.' The article related that they met with a detail of Australians who by prearrangement had made a five day march to the Markham River banks to combine forces with the paratroopers. "'"h was laid up in every city. And there was so great abundance of wheat, that it was equal to the sand of the sea, and the plenty exceeded measure. And be- fore the famine came, Joseph had wo sons born: whom Aseneth the daughter of PuUphar priest of Heliopolls bore unto hin And he called the name of the first-born, Manasses saying: God hath made me to forget all my labors, and my father's house. And he named the second Ephraim, saying: God hath made me to grow In the land of my poverty. Now when the seven years of I U. S. Must Become Spiritual Arsenal To Insure Peace Chicago. (E)In a letter indors- ing the nation-wide observance of the thirteenth annual Religious Week from September 26 to Oc- tober 3, President Franklin D. Roosevelt asserted that the United States must prove itself "an ar- senal of spiritual values" if there is to be a lasting peace. "We have already proved that we are an arsenal of democracy but this accomplishment, great as it is, will not suffice to gain us that just and durable peace for which we strive unless we also prove that we are an arsenal of spiritual values," the President wrote. "Unless we have faith in free- dom, in brotherhood and in the ,zational direction of life, a faith undismayed by all obstacles, our labor and our sacrifice in the pres- ent struggle must assuredly be in vain. "This faith is not easily come by. The selfishness of some in- dividuals, the greed for power of some organized groups and the not infrequent miscarriage of plans for human betterment all tempt us at times to adopt a cynical view of human nature and its pos- sibilities. We need no such oc- casions to live above our imme- diate experiences, to see the slow, difficult but constant struggle of our orebears toward the realiza- tion of these ideals. We need edu- cation and re-education in the dynamic concepts which have i made of this hemisphere a new world." The President's letter was ad- dressed to Dr. Roy G. ROss, of the International Council of Religious Education, which sponsors the re- ligious week observance. l,S00 At Argenth Catholic Action Session Buenos Aires.

()A five-point at- tack on the proposed plan of drafting fathers for military ser- vice was outlined in a sermon de- livered by the Very Rev. Thomas F. Coakley, pastor, in Sacred Heart Church, here. Father Coakley, who was a chaplain in World War I, made it plain it was through "no lack of patriotism" that "we of Sacred Heart" protest against the plan and pointed out that the service roll of the parish numbers 837, one of the largest in the Diocese of Pittsburgh. The five reasons why fathers should not be drafted, Father Coakley said, were: "First, it is bad spiritually. It will destroy the unity, the cohe- sion, the stability of the family, since it separates husband and wife, parents and children; in a multitude of cases it will send them roaming about the country in a vain effort to keep family life intact and united. "Second, it is bad morally. Sep- aration always weakens and of- ten demoralized families; it makes for higher juvenile delinquency, for divorce, for separation, for de- sertion, for loose moral standards, for marital infidelity. "Third, economically, it will re- sult in diminished income for the family, with its consequent low- ering of standards of living. It means that material hardships will be increased; the members of the family will be force to sep- arate and hunt for jobs in strange and distant places. "Fourth, psychologically, it will result in untold sorrow, sadness anxiety, msecurity and loneliness resulting from broken homes of fathers inducted into the service. - IIII ROGOSKI .
