With an increased enrollment of new students, with religious cere- monies of an impressive nature, and with several new members added to the faculty, all imbued with the highest kind of enthusiasm, the Dio- cesan Little Rock College formally opened its doors for the twenty:first time on Thursday, September 15th. Begging God's blessing on the new scholastic year, a Solemn Hight Mass was sung in St John's Chapel, Morris Hall, on Thursday morning at nine o'clock, with the Rev. James P. Mo- ran, LL. D., President, as Celebrant, the Rev. Thomas F. Walshe as Dea- con, the Rev. George F. X. Strassner, A. M. Sub-Deacon and the Rev. Jolm J. Healey, A. M., as Master of Cere- monies. The members of the faculty occupied reserved seats in the front of the chapel, while the assembled students completely filled the chapel, with many standing in the hallway outside The music for the Mass was furnished by a quintette from the Cathedral choir with Prof. J. J. I~eller, organist at the Cathedral as organist and director, and was thoroughly in keeping with the sol- emnity of the occasion. The quin- tette was composed of Mr. Herman Lensing, tenor, Dr. Harry W. Brown- ing, Bass; Mrs. W.~ J. Powell, so- prano; Mrs. Frank Erhart, Mezzo soprano and Mrs. A. J. Heyden, con- tralto. Following the Mass, the Rev. John J. Healey, A. M., a graduate of the college, and now attached to the faculty of the school preached the sermon Father Healey dwelt on the necessity for religion in education, if the whole man were to be properly trained. It was a masterly effort and made a deep and lasting impression on those who were fortunate enough to hear it. Father Healey spoke as follows: Father Healey's Sermon I~fy Dear Friends: Twenty-one (Continued on page 5.) oDecembcr'Guadalupe.n the feast of Our Lady mitteeed, an ondttmtracethisrelatiOnScommitteebe appoint-be era- PffTSBURG C URCH [l NS AID FELLOW mARYKNOLL P IP BTER AND WIFE + ,+ ++ con+,,+ +o have some one powered to invite representatives MADE GENEROUS{;IFTt PASSENGERS HURT S TO LEAVE BEOPd~ CONVERTS t+ sympathize with us when we are rom white" Catholic organizations to 1502 TIONS join with ti, em it, formulating a pro- (piBtYs~urChWs~6w SA~V:::)am + TRAIN WRECK +DISTANT LANDS w + Service., (By ++ CATHOLICISM + tow+ +o++,co > iContinued on page 4.) gram." s + IN Meanwhile a wide study under .-- _ ', NOWl~llt~ AFF~L~ATION underand religiousCathliClifeauspiCeSof thefNegrothe socialrace ed depositor' in the First NationalI (By N.
