Newman Library Announces Hours When Open Little Rock.--For the benefit of those who come to the library and are disappointed at finding it closed, we would like to make known the hours that we are open. Every week day from 9:30 until 1 and from 2:30 until 5:30, ex- cept Saturdays when we close at 1. If there is anybody desiring to read who is not free at those hours we will be glad to make arrangements to have the library open at some hour when they might come, if they will call us 2-2352. The library is listed as the Newman Rental Library, not the Catholic Library, should you forget the number. We have been asked many times why we call it the Newman Li- brary. We have given it the name of one of the most brilliant minds of the Catholic Church--Cardinal Newman, who perhaps is most familiar to the world at large as the author of "Lead Kindly Light" and the founder of the Oxford Movement. A very interesting life of Cardinal Newman, besides many of his works, may be found sky, C. S. Sp., pastor of St. Jo- seph's Church, Conway, and broth- er of the celebrant was Arch- Priest. The Rev. Henry Thes- sing, C. S. Sp., was Deacon of the Mass and the Rev. Charles Wolffer, C. S. Sp., was Sub- deacon. The Rev. Norbert Grum- mer, O. S. B., acted as Master of Ceremonies. The following members of the Reverend Clergy were present in the sanctuary, the Rt. Rev. Msgr. Albert L. Fletcher, V. G., the Rev. John B. Scheper, S. T. D., Very Rev. Msgr. Joseph A. Gallagher, Roy. Otto Loeb, Rev. Edward" P. Garrity, Rev. Joseph Feldkamp, Roy. Thomas J. Prendergast, Rev. Thomas F. Reynolds, and Rev. Lawrence Maus. The Rev. Joseph Poblescheck, C. S. Sp., of Pittsburgh, Pa., former pastor at Conway preached the sermon during the Mass. Elo- quently and inspirationally he spoke on the Priesthood using as his text, "Thou art a priest for- ever, according to the order of Melchisedech." His Excellency spoke a few words at the close of the Mass, congratulating Father Pobles- check on his beautiful sermon on the dignity and meaning of the Catholic Priesthood. The Bishop continued and' congratulated the family of the newly ordained say- ing that there is no greater honor possible for a family than that one among them be chosen for the Sacerdotal life. Warmly he spoke of the mother who had given two of her sons to the service of the Church. Further he said that this cele- bration was a family reunion for the parish. He congratulated the congregation, comparing it to a faithful fig tree which had given, so many of its sons to the Holy Priesthood. He spoke of the six priests who have been ordained from the parish and told of others who are preparing for the Priest- hood. This was a token of the excellent spiritual and religious spirit of the congregation at Con- way. Of the present pastor, Fa- :thor Lachowsky, the Bishop feel- ingly spoke of his gentle manner which had made htm endeared by his people, and by the Clergy and laity of the entire Diocese. Messrs. Amos Enderlin and Geo. Freyaldenhoven, students of St. John's Seminary, assisted at the altar. Theodore and Alfred Hie- gel, former classmates of the eels- brant, acted as censor-bearers. The choir under the able direc- tion of Miss Marie Schichtl, ren- dered the Mass in honor of the Heart of Jesus by Turton in a devotional manner. The altars I were beautifully decorated in gold and white gladiolas, a gift of the choir members. The church was filled to capacity with relative and friends of the newly-ordaine pi'lest. The following were included in the First Mass ceremonies: aco- lytes, Cecil Moix and Frank Gehr- ki; torch-bearers, Peter Simon, J. C.

Through a sus- tained drive, it was revealed, The Guardian has a greater subscrip- tion capacity than ever before in its history. Almost every parish in the Diocese has reached its quota in the past two years. How- ever, this year there has been a marked decline of the paid sub- scriptions. Plans were formulat- ed to have the various parishes sustain their quotas with paid subscriptions. It was noted tlmt the reduced subscription price had been the chief reason for the increased' number of subscribers. Unless these subscriptions are renewed promptly, it was said, it may be necessary to raise the subscrip- tion price. The entire board ex- pressed the opinion that they would greatly regret this final measure. It was pointed out that the cost of production has increased more than 50 per cent and that the high standard that The Guardian now has will be lost unless meas- ures are taken which will assure the renewal of delinquent sub- scriptions. i The meeting ws presided over i ly the Rt. Rev. Msgr. Albert L. Fletcher, V. G., President of the Publication Society, and attended by Mr. John Pruniski, Vice Presi- dent, Rev. Thomas L. Keany, Ph. D., Roy. Thomas J. Prendergast and Rev. Patrick M. Lynch. Vatican Paper Lauds Fight Of English Minister Vatican City. {lO.--When Ne- ville Chamberlain, England's Prime Minister flew to Germany this week to confer with Fuehrer Adolf Hitler at the farter's Berch- tesgaden residence, Osservatore Ramona said the fullest well wishes not only of Europe but of the whole world went with him. Speaking with reference to the crisis provoked by the Sudeten question in Czechoslovakia, Os- servatore said that now, more than ever, "it is necessary to have the virtue, merit and strength to renounce resort to force." To re- nounce the use of force, the paper added, could be construed by no- body to be a sign of weakness, but must be regarded rather as the desire simply to avoid a su- preme lnjusticethat of exposing millions and millions of innocent 3ersons to death, and possibly bringing out the ruin of Europe.

The Sisters invite their friends to calL On Dec. 6, 1927, the persent ni- tro-modern institution was com- pleted and dedicated* by His Emi- nence George Cardinal Mundelein of Chicago, assisted by Bishop Morris of Little Rock, and a dis- tinguished group of other church dignitaries from various sections of the United States. The occasion aarked the first visit of a Prince of the Church to come into Ar- kansas. In the long ago ,it was Father Patrick McGowan, an early mis- sionary priest in Arkansas,. who contracted for the purchase of the original St. Joseph's Infirmary, a frame structure on Cedar Terrace, land secured from the Convent of the Sisters of Mercy in Little Rock two Sisters to take charge of the initial hospital work. Those two were Sisters Mary Aloysius and Sister Mary Clare, who were join- ed by Sisters Mary Lucian and Mary Rose from St. Mary's Con- vent here in Hot Springs. The .dedicatory Mass was offered by Father McGowan on September 24, 1888. Sister Mary Philomena ioined the staff of nursing Sis- ters in 1889. For 16 years the original frame hospital did full duty in the way of housing for St. Joseph's.
