Dr. Edgar Scbseaeler, O.S.B., Director of the Family Life Bureau, National Catholic Welfare Conference, in an article appearing in the cur- rent issue of The HomlleWc and Putoral Review. Explaining that "the immediate purpose of family allowances is o provide increased income in view of increased family burdens," Fa- ther Sehmiedeler writes: "They are supplements to the remunera- tion of wage-earners and salaried workers to offset variations in family responsibilities. Behind them is the notion of enabling the financially weak to exercise their natural right to marry and rear' a normal family of children, there- by helping to maintain the popula- tion of their country." Laws Now Applicable "'The idea is not entirely new to us," he observes. "We have had military allowances on a large scale since July, 1942. But civilian allowances have not been in vogue here. We have had Fed- eral Aid to dependent children under the Social Security Act; this is the social service of our country most closely related to family allowances. The principle difference between the grants un- der this measure and the usual family allowances is the Social Security Act's stipulation of a lack of parental support as a con- dition of eligibility, and conse- quently a more direct implication of poor relief. Both the grants and allowances should be retained. As matters stand at present, they tend to punish those who beget chil- dren and to reward those who do not." In conclusion Dr. Schmiedeler writes: '°there are unquestionably a large number of Catholics, both husbands and wives, who are gen- uinely eager to observe the moral law as it relates, to marriage, but who have been caught up in a financial situation that makes it exceedingly difficult to do so. And, we dare say, there are many others in this same category. To them, allowances should prove a veritable godsend."

As the storm swerved to- wards Miami, parishes of the city launched preparations to meet the gale and care for any eventuality. Two days before the hurricane struck, pastors of six Miami par- ishes, announced that parish build- ings, schools, churches and halls would be available to those whose homes were considered unsafe• Parish organizations immediately mobilized and stocked facilities with medicine and food. When the fury of the 99 MPH winds blasted into the city, people streamed into parish facilities by thousands. Priests.

(lO--Twenty thousand Ca- tholic young men representing every region of Switzerland held their first post-war meeting when they assembled for, the fifth gen- eral convention of the Swiss Ca- tholic Young Men's Association, at Einsiedeln, famous pilgrimage center. A number of American soldiers now on lurlough in Switzerland participated in the opening pro- cession, which led through the heart of the village to the huge square in front of the beautifully illuminated monastery church• Six candles that had been offered up at the outbreak of the war, on the assumption that it would last six years, and an • additional seventh candle, synbolizing the .seventh year of war and at the same time the year of peace, were solemnly carried to the chapel of the Blessed Mother of Einsiedeln, in the presence of the Most Rev. Franziskus van Streng, Bishop of Basel and Lugano, who also cele- brated a Pontifical High Mass the next morning• All the young men present received Holy Communion The Swiss Catholic Young Men's Association is the largest youth group of Switzerland, and this was the largest gathering of Catholic young men ever held in this coun- try. The principal object was to thank the Blessed Mother of Ein- siedeln for having protected Switzerland and kept it out of the St. Louis. 0£)--Dr. Walter A• Mater, o Concordia Seminary, well-known Lutheran minister and speaker on the Lutheran Hour radio program, has joined Cath- olic organizations here in a pro- test against the indorsement of the Planned Parenthood Association by the St. Louis Chamber of Com- merce as a deserving charity. "I wish to register my emphatic protest against any organization which has as its purpose the dis- semination of information con- cerning artificial birth control and the avoidance of parenthood," Dr. Mater wrote to the Chamber of Commerce. "The Lutheran Church is" on record as being against the prac- tice of birth control as commonly understood and I know the Roman Catholic Church takes the same attitude. I cannot see why .the Chamber of Commerce should en- dorse an organization which de- liberately works contrarily to the aims of the two largest church bodies in St. Louis. Kenrick Council, Knights ,of Columbus, made the first protest against the endorsement, in the form of a resolution, which was immediately followed by similar :action on the part of other coun- cils. Petroleum Corp. Arkansas ward V. Stanford, O.S.A., Prior and Rector of Augustinian College here, has received a letter of com- mendation for wartime service fro.m Vice Admiral Randall Jac- obs, Chief of Naval Personnel. The letter states in part: "As a member of the Navy Edu- cational Advisory Committee and El Dorado f the special committee for the se- lection of NROTC institutions, you have given time and assistance to the educational problems of the Navy without reservation, and your advice and counsel have been important factors in shaping policies of great significance noi only to the Navy but to the na- tion as a whole." Father Stanford has served as a consultant to the Navy Department since February 1942. "FRESH UP" WITH GRID-GRIST By " Coach Tom E. Stidham Marquette With Editorial Sidelights "..---..-..-:€€..-_.r..-_.; In Black Print By Guardign Editor .--::.:::::::.:; Notre Dame-Illinois Game Highlight Meeting Viewed As Index Of Future Middlewest Catholic Teams Flourish eligibility by inadvertently flirt- ing with professional offers. That meant that Ireshmala Bill Walsh had to be groomed in a hurry for the all-important pivot spot. What the Irlsh say they lack more than anything this fall is a breakaway runner like the great Bob Kelly. Phil Colella, a fresh- man, is being groomed for the spot and there is a possibility that Jim Brennan, who rose to stardom late last season, may yet return to the squad. We believe that Notre Dme • wll be dangerous all the way. ThXe fact that it has nine lettermen-- 14 upperclassmen--on the first two teams is a- clue to some strength. And, above all, the quarterback position, key spot in the T formation, will be in capable hands wit.h Frank Dancewicz back on deck. The lid is off and football is rowding baseball for the spot light. It is traditionally a distinc- tive academic game. It has many practical lessons to teach boys and young men. Football players in large numbers were in the armed forces during the war and they acquitted themselves nobly and were a credit to the game, in which many of them first learned to take orders, to use strategy and to endure hardships. The good football player must learn re- straint, self reliance to a certain extent and the code calls for fair play toward an opponent. This weekend is an important one for Catholic college football fans (and fans in general) be- cause it probably will provide the !answer to that annual question: "What about Notre Dame?"
