PAGE EIGHT THE GUARDIAN, SEPTEMBER 30, 1938 Three Priests Lose Lives; Churches Damaged (By N. C. W. C. News Service) At least three priests lost their lives and Catholic churches, schools, hospitals and other in- stitutions were damaged to the extent of hundreds of thousands of dollars in the hurricane which ripped across the North Atlantic States with almost unprecedented velocity. Terrible though the havoc is Academy's Patrons Club Has Meeting Fort Smith.The Patrons Club held its first meeting for the year, September 23, 1938, during which the new officers were elected ae- cording to the request of its offi- cers and members.

Castleberry; publicity chairman, Mrs. Charles Daves. The following classes have or- ganized and elected officers: Sen- known to be, it may appear even worse as the process of "digging out" advances, and communica- tion is restored with numerous places which have been put out of touch with their neighboring communities. Disrupted commu- nications not only added' to the horror of the storm, but isolated not a few localities making it im- possible to get an early estimate of the damage done in those places. ! Priests Killed The Rev. George Jowdy, Ad- ministrator of the Church of Our Lady of Purgatory (Maronite), New Bedford, Mass., in the Dio- cese of Fall River, was at his cottage at Pope Beach when the wind and waves hit the structure.

Crawley, a retired priest of the Diocese of Helena, Mont., is reported to have been drowned at Pawtucket, R. I. The Rev. T. J. A.

Regular class speech work and aociology have been added to the year's school program. OLIVETAN SISTERS OBSERVE ANNIVERSARY (Continued from Page 1) for victims of disease, after a day of hard toil. In 1899, the misery of the peo- ple, victims of malaria, became so acute that there was a general cry for a hospital. Sisters were entirely out of proportion to the demands made upon them by homes where the sick and dying begged for help. Thus it was, that during the year 1900, a hospital was begun in a six-room frame building. Throughout Arkansas the bene- fits of this hospital have been felt. From its opening on July 5, 1900, to January 1, 1938, a total number in Norword. Other damages, particularly from falling trees, were numerous. Many Injured Paul Ravey, of Burlington, Vt., and John Curtin, of Foxboro, Mas- sachusetts, students, and Michael Mullin, a football trainer at Holy Cross College, were among the 100 or more treated at St. Vincent's hospital for cuts and bruises in- flicted by flying slate and bricks. Approximately 100 homeless persons have been housed in the Knights of Columbus hall at Orange, Mass. The town hall of Upton, Mass., has been turned over to the Holy Angels parish for Sunday Mass, because the church's roof has been swept away. It is reported that every build- ing, including the Catholic church on Saltaire, an island off Fire Is- land, has been destroyed. A report from Patchogue says even the oldest resident cannot re- call ever seeing anything like what has happened here. Waters of Great South Bay, rolling through the streets, flooded the grounds of the Catholic high school to a depth of three feet. Sisters Marooned Five Sisters of Charity of Hali- fax, who teach in the Catholic high schools, were marooned when the waters surrounded their resi- dence. The fire department sent! a truck to rescue the nuns, but the truck was unable to make its way to the convent The fire- men then obtained' a rowboat and l removed the Sisters to safety. The! Sisters would not leave their home, however, until a priest from St. Francis de Sales' church had been called and had removed the Blessed Sacrament from the con- vent chapel. of 39, 768 patients have been caredl'[ .r s00ytimon or in this institution, regardleu bf creed, color, or financial con- Le In dltion. urt in Parade Mishap l Los Angeles. 0O.--R/chard E.

There is no such thing as a "born Catholic," for Bap- tism is the gate by which the Church is entered.

One, a Hawaiian man, was for 18 years Father Damien's boat- man, conveying the priest to Molo- kai ports when the cleric had charge of the spiritual needs of many settlements other than Kala- wao. He served Mass in many villages where the Sacrifice had: to be offered in grass shacks, since churches had not yet been built. The man, who contracted leprosy while making his rounds with the priest, had been a resi- dent of the settlement for 45 years.

'Prison Angel,, French Nun, Ends Career Paris. ().--A French religious, Sister Leonide, has just retired from her prison duties here. At 87 years of age she is going to a house of repose in the Diocese of Limoges. For 60 consecutive years she has cared for the physical and moral wrecks hidden in the pri- sons for women which are situ- ated in Paris and its envlrons--the Petite-Roquette, Saint-Lazare, and Fresnes. For 68 years she has been a member of the Order of Marie-Joseph, which ministers to prisoners. Her long and admirable career was recognized by the French Government, which decorated Sis- ter Leonide with the cross of the Legion of Honor. Sister Leonide has known, along with a multi- tude of stray sheep, the most no- torious criminals. She consoled the famous spy, Mata Hart, shot in the moat of the Chateau of Vincenens in the World War. Helena K. of C.'s Have Supreme Council Speaker Helena.The Helena Council of the Knights of Columbus were privileged to have Col. M. L. O'Leary, representative of the Su- preme Council, as their guest last week. The occasion was a barbe- cue supper held at the Catholic Club in Helena. Speaking to a gathering of almost all the men of St. Mary's parish he said, "It is appalling the number of young boys and girls, both from public schools and our own Catholic schools who have joined the ranks of Communism." "Outside of Russia there are 256 Communistic newspapers pub- lished and many of them in the United States. These papers are distributed among the members of our Army and Navy as well as among the disgruntled citi- zens. "What we need today Is men who can tihnk for themselves, men who are not easily led by the wrong kind of leaders. One of the best ways to fight Commu- nism, Col. O'Leary said, "is to bring about a return to the prin- ciples of Catholic social teachings in our own lives and in our gov- ernment. Parents should feel their own responsibilities more and watch out for their own chil- dren." Thomas Clancy, State Deputy of the Arkansas Council, made a brief address as did the Rev. T. J. Martin, Chaplain of the local coun- cil. Joe Etooh, Grand Knight of the Helena Council, presided at the supper. Sam Papa was in charge of the refreshments. Plans were made for a Colum- bus Day banquet to be held this year, at the Legion Hut, Helena, it was announced by Grand Knight Joe Etoch. olics. Their ages range from 70 to 80. All were present at Fa- ther Damien's funeral and at the disinterment of his remains over two years ago. Sworn statements of witnesses will be sent to Belgium this month. Glee Club, Band And Dramatics At Catholic Hi Little RockA general assembly was held at Catholic High Mon- day, during which Father O'Con- nell explained to the students that during this week the Glee Club and the band will be organized .for the year. Father Donovan will again be in charge of these two' organizations. This year there will be a drama club and it is hoped that the stu- dents will be able to present at least one play before the end of the term. All students are eligible for membership in these clubs. Catholic High Winner Over Warren High, 33-7 Little Rock.--Catholic High won its second game of the season by a 33-7 victory over Warren last week. The improved playing of fullback Bill Kirspel was a grati- fying feature of the Warren game. His blocking was on par with most college backs. The signal calling of Raymond Carson gave the Rockets the necessary punch that was need so much in the Bates- villa game. The pasting of Ed Hart to James "Blimp" Seerc, showed another passing combina- tion that will be used in the com- ing games. "Blimp" is a 190- pounder, just as tall as he is broad. i i i i Molly avi ...... How and What To Serve jelly they make an excellent gar. One of the simplest and most nish. All this added together makes a hard target for the tackler. Secvey is one of the fastest men on the Rocket squad. Referee Ebby Alexander ex- pressed his opinion of the Rocket squad as the best that he had seen in many a football game. One of the features of the game happened when the Rockets re- ceived the ball on the 15 yard line and marched 85 yards without :passing the ball and without los- ing the ball until they scored. Paul Paladino, a three-year boy at tackle, cannot be overlooked in any ball game. He played a bang up game considering the fact that a boil on his foot was a handi- cap. The Rockets backfield consists of four seniors who are very clever, fast and good ball carriers. James Larrison has come along fast which has aided our block- ing and ability to run to the left. enjoyable of all sorts of home entertaining is an afternoon tea. This increasingly popular form of entertainment is particularly con- venient and appealing to women. More than four or five guests are not usually invited, and they may enjoy an intimate chat with their hostess as they could not do in a large gathering. Everything that one has for an afternoon tea, unless it is toast or waffles, usually may be pre- pared ahead of time, so there is no large amount of work attach- ed. There is not a great deal of re- freshment ,but everything should be as dainty and pretty as pos- sible. Use your finest china and rettiest tea set. Besides the tea, which should be of the finest brand, you ned little besides toast, jelly, and per- haps some sandwiches or canapes, or some small cakes or wafers. With the tea you should provide lump sugar and cream, or slices of lemon, for your guests may like tea in various ways. Flavor- ed lump sugar has become very popular and may be purchased in any large market. A pretty white or embroidered tea-cloth covers the tea table. The tea set is placed upon it, together with the cups and saucers, plates and napkins, and the hostess pours tea at the table. A pitcher of hot water is convenient to have on the table, as some of the guests may like a weaker tea than oth- ers. If you have a tea wagon it will be very convenient to use instead of the table. Jellied Peach Cobbler 1 tbp. plain gelatine 1 cup hot water 1-3 cup sugar 1-2 cup orange juice 1]} cups cracker crumbs 1-4 cup melted butter 1-4 cup cold water 1 tbp. lemon juice 1-4 tsp. salt 2 cups sliced peaches (fresh or canned) Pour cold water in a bowl and sprinkle gelatine on top of water. Add sugar, salt and' hot water, and stir until dissolved. Add orange juice and lemon juice. Cool un- til it begins to thicken, then add sliced peaches (either fresh or canned). Cake, cookie, or graham crackers, finely crushed, may be used for a crust. Mix crumbs and melted butter thoroughly. Put part of crumbs in bottom of mold or pan that has been rinsed in cold water, packing them in firm- ly. Pour in peach mixture. Sprinkle top with remaining but- i tered crumbs, and chill. When firm, unmold and garnish with slices of peaches. Serve with ei- ther thin cream or whipped cream (or whipped evaporated milk.) Creamed Peas nd Carrots 1 bunch carrots 1 can peas 1-4 tsp. salt 1 tsp sugai" 1 Cups white sauce I thp. butter Wash and scrape tender car- rots, cut in round slices, and then in quarters, or slice down carrots and then cut across. Put in boil- ing salted water, to cover and cooR until tender. Drain, add peas i drained from their liquid and heated; mix with a fork, and pour over them the white sauce; add the butter, sugar and salt and keep heated in the top part of a double boiler. Candied Sweet Potatoes 4 large sweet potatoes 2 tbps. butter 1-2 tsp. salt 1-2 cup brown sugar I-3 cup hot water Boil potatoes until tender, re- move skins, and cut in half-inch slices. Cook together the sugar, water, salt and butter or fat (bacon fat or ham fat is excep- tionally good) and let boil 15 minutes. Place the slices of sweet potatoes in a flat baking dish and pour over the syrup. Cook in a moderate oven for about 10 sins. or until the potatoes are a golden brown. Marshmallows can be cut in halves and placed on the pota- toes if desired. When these are served with a dab of red or green Peach Sweet Pickle 10 lbs. peaches 5 lbs. sugar 3 pts. cider vinegar 1 oz. cinnamon 1 tbp. cloves Select first peaches--use cling- stone peaches. Peel fruit and cut in halves or quarters, or leave whole if you do not use cling- stone. Melt sugar in the vinegar over a slow fire. Add fruit, and :cook until perfectly tender but not soft. Store in jars. Pour hot syrup over fruit and seal. Cook syrup until slightly thickened be- fore pouring over fruit. With juicy fruit use one-third less vinegar. Crab Apple Marmalade Use pulp left over from crab apple jelly. Rub it through strain- er and' for each cup of fruit add 3/4 cup sugar. Add lemon cut l very fine, allowing /z lemon to every 6 cups pulp. Cook very slowly. Stir constantly until thick. Pour into sterilized jars and seal with paraffin. Any fruit pulp left over from jelly making, or any combination of fruit pulp, may be used instead of the crab apples. One-half teaspoon of ground cinnamon may be used to flavor the marmalade instead of the lemon. Ginger Pears Cut 8 lbs. of pears into small pieces of uniform size and discard the stems and cores. Add V4 lb. canton ginger cut in small pieces, and 4 lbs. sugar. Cover and let stand overnight. In the morning add the juice of 2 lemons. Cook slowly 2 hours. Pour into steri- lized jars and seal with paraffin. This is delicious with hot biscuits as a sandwich filling, or served with hot or cold meats. Pears pre- served in this way are delicious. HOUSEHOLD HINTS Mend chamois gloves with fine wool instead of cotton. It will not tear the leather so easily. In cooking mushrooms add salt early, the other seasonings after- ward. The salt brings out the flavor of the mushrooms. To remove the shine from dark serge, rub with hot vinegar, then sponge with ammonia. Do not use oil on waxed floors. It will soften the wax. Use a soft brush or mop for every day clean- ing. Pineapple meringue pie is made similar to lemon meringue pie with one crust. The meringue is added when the pie is cold. There is a big harvest of grapes this year and they are delicious made into jellies, jams and grape butter. Nutmeats that are kept cold will not become rancid. Water should be boiling and salted before rice, noodles, mac- aroni, or spaghetti are added. THE JnUNIOR COOK There are so many dainty des- serfs that can be made with left- over pie dough that Junior Cooks will be pleased to have this recipe to keep on file in their recipe book. The next time mother makes pies and there is a piece of the dough left over, roll it very thin and make the following dainties: Almond Dainties Roll the pastry in thin oblong sheets. Place one sheet of the pastry in a well greased cookie tin. Brush it lightly with melted butter. Mix 1 cup of brown sugar with V4 lb. ground almonds (put through the food chopper), and spread the mixture on the pastry. Cover with another sheet of pas- try. If the mixture is dry, add Just a little milk or orange Juice to mix it. Bake in a moderate oven 10 minutes. When cool, cut in squares or oblong slices. Mash- ed dates or figs can be used in- stead of the sugar and almonds if desired. DO YOU KNOW That the pamphlet "Jams, Jel- lies, Relishes and Pickles" gives In detail the directions for mak- ing jellies? You can have a copy of this pamphlet containing 40 Felton Robertson at center is small but dynamite comes in small pack- ages. He is a good line backer up as well as a good snapper back. The linemen are small but they are very fast. It is difficult for an opponent to block them. By mid season Harold 'Hootie' Thomp- son will be one of the best ends in the state. His ability to block tacklers along with his pass snag- ging has made him a standout at end. We are not sticking out our necks out here at Catholic High just hoping that each week we will chalk up a winner. Coach Murphy is trying to develop some capable reserves for the end posi- tions as well as the tackles. Supreme Knight Will Broadcast Columbus Day New Haven, Conn. C.'.--Martin H.
