Only bones, the remains of "funny boners," the lightheaded gentry who flsually regard the way .to betterment as an annoy- ing adventure. The remnants of the "wish-boners," the dreamers who have to be lifted up as well as led to achievement. The car- . casses of the "jawboners," whose chieL proficiency consisted in mur- muring pnd complaining. The sad story of a mule's trag- edy is well known: He was hun- gry and stood at a little distance from a bale of hay. Every time he Slowly approached the bale, it moved a little away. All he had to do was to take an energetic jump or make a lunge, but, unfor- tunately, he had never learned aggressive forward action; his specialty was employing his hind- quarters vigorously. So, every time the bale .moved, he just kick- ed and kicked and brayed, with the result that, after days of this kind of performance, he died of starvation. The moral: Pos- perity or success will never be reached in the land of lingering; opportunity shies from kicking and braying. In the Hall of Fame are pre-  ,, served the bones of backboners, the names of men who were alert and aggressive and redoubtable in spirit. The knock of opportunity will ever be audible to the one , ,, with a never-say-die attitude. The folly of one is the fortune of another. Edison felt that spare time was success time. This poor, tireless, ambitious "pie butcher," in between his trips through the train, selling his magazines, would utilize all his spare time in ex- perimenting on electrical devices. He advanced step by step, despite trials and against odds, until to- day his name is known all over the world .... So, as Cassius said, "The fault is not in our stars dear Brutus but in ourselves." Spiiitual ma F- tery is the open sesame to the fabled favors f Lady Opportun- ity. Reward gravitates to the ready. Failure or success should never be blamed entirely on the fickleness of .fortune.

Des Moines. Ia. Helping Our Children For those of us who have chil- dren, surely their welfare is our great concern. And what finer achievement can there be than to raise these boys and girls to be strong and unselfish characters? Who can thinktof a nobler tFask than helping the child grow to- wards a deep love of God, and of his neighbor as himself? But are we really accomplishing this? Unfortunately, and obviously, we are not. Not as long as our pris- ons and mental hospitals are overflowing. Not as long as fam- ily strife, economic conflict, ra- cial and international hatred exist. In one sense war is the epitome of this failure to raise beautiful and divine characters in our chil- dren. Yet we can't abolish tim evil in the world by passing laws; we can't legislate goodness and strength into the growing gen- eration. However, there is some- thing we can do. We can strive to raise children who will em- body those traits of Christian cha?acter so essential to an in- tegrated personal life, and to a wholesome' society. That. is our task! . Now this business of fit-owing fine youngsters is difficult. There are numerous factors involved, of which the most important is--we, the parents. By and large, if we are right, our children will be right. The first step should be getting ourselves in tune with God and man. Ther{ there is another most im- portant factor: namely, the phy- sical environment of the child. We know full well that most peo- pie, regardless of where they live, will heartily agree with us when we say that the country'is far superior to the city for child- raising purposes. But this is such SeCular Papers Endorsing Bishop's Plan Guardian Office. -- From a Guardian reader, we have re- ceived a clipping written by the editor of the Charleston Express, commenting on His Excellency's program. "We're glad to see the church take part in an educational pro- gram to awaken state citizens to the wonderful opportunities at hand,' but instead of a week dedi- cated to 'Arkansas', why not a year?" says this enterprising )aper. "The church is the world's first .ducational institution through it much can be done to speed post-war planning." The editor, who had received much of his information from the Paris Progress, quoted freely from Our Most Reverend Bishop's letter, covering complaints on the handling of raw materials, freight rates, utility costs, and legal pro- tection, and asking as His Excel- lency asked, "Why can't the peo- ple of Arkansas do something about it?" Attention to this article in the Charleston Express was brought to The Guardian through Mrs. Anna Groeber. "] send this be- cause We want our good Bishop to know that his voice/is heard all over the State. Truly he is to be congratulated on the record he has made ija our beloved Arkan- sas." ' , It appears that the Bishop wasn't strong enough with his suggestion for a weekly obser- vance, and that the secular press m some section of the state want to push the program further, and use it until Arkansas is given her place in the sun. found through association with animal life. If a child in the city has a pet, x it's the exception, not the rule. Yet it's every day living for the country youth to have his dog or dogs, and to spend long .hours in the saddle building that beautiful poise and coordi- nation so btdly needed by the adolescent. Youngsters in the country don't sit glued in front of the radio perverting their minds with mur- der mysteries or hideous sex an important truth pertaining to tales. There is too much life, too child development that It must much reality confronting them be constantly reiterated. And if every minute. it were truly believed by all of Evan W. Thomas us why these huge cities? A strong, natural expression of children is through play. Think of the crowded, smelly, city streets, the pint-size backyard, the }ammed playgrounds, breeding places for many of our juvenile delinquents, where young folks try to find fun. Or the house, malt shop, dance hall, or corner drug store where those of high school age are forced to con- gregate. In the country we hve a na- tural playground. Instead of hard streets or sidewalks we have the Good Earth with its delightful lanes and winding pathways.. At evening time, safe from the on- rush ,of city traffic, our young- sters play Run Sheep Run or Hide and Go Seek in the most satis- factory of all playgrounds--the farm.

St. Mary's Celebrate "Arkansas Week" Little Rock.--Carrving out the suggestion of His Excellency, the Most Rev. Bishop, that Arkansas l)eople be made more conscious 6f the worth and resources of our state, Mt. St. Mary's classes cele- brated "Arkansas Week" with a series of assembly programs, de- voted to a study of the history, the resources, the educational, cul- tural and religious institutions of tiae state. On Monday, at a general as- sembly, Sister Mary Mark, prin- cipal, explained to the students lhe message of the Most Rev. Bishop; and in a short talk ex- horted the pupils to show pride and love for Arkansas and to make knowledge of our state part of the pursuit of learning. Seventh and eighth grade pup- ils eniertaincd the lower grades with an Arkansas program, at a grarmar school assembly, held on Wednesday.

A recent survey revealed the existence of one thousand billion Seminary Plans To Bring Diocese Into Closer Contact During Year Little Rock.--With the opening of St. John's Home Missions Semi- nary on September 23 a propit- ious, though difficult year begins to unfold. It is planned to .bring friends and benefactors into closer con- tact with the Seminary this year. The significance and beauty of many blessings that continue to strengthen and foster the work of Camden School Celebrates 'Arkansas Week' Carnden.--At the request of their beloVed Bishop the pupils of St. Louis School, Camden, de- voted a great part of last week to the study of their native state. Much enthusiasm and interest was shown by the children while working on this project. Many colorful posters of Ark- ansas products, its flag and motto were made and displayed in the classrooms. Interesting papers were also written by the children in the higher grades. The Sodality of the Blessed Virgin Mary held its first meet- ing Sunday, SeptemlJer 28. New officers elected were: lrefect, Virginia Boddie; assistant prefect, Mary Ruth Willis; secretcry and treasurer, Peggy Graves. Mary Ruth Willis, the retiring prefect is to be commended for her excellent work during the past year. Status Of New British Education Bill In Doubt London. (l}The new education bill will be tabled in the House of Commons toward the end of Oc- tober and the vital committee stage will be reached in January, it is stated by the Archbishop of Liverpool, the Most Rev. Richard Downey, who says he has pri- vate information to this effect. But the Teacher's World says it is doubtful if an education bill will be seen this year, owing to the manifest lack of agreement with its terms. And a writer in the Schoolmaster, organ of Ihe National Union of Teachers, says: "The governmentand the R.C.s know itwill not press any meas- ure which arouses deep religious' controversy." New English College President London. (K)The new president of the Englisia College, Lisbon, is 53-year-old Glasgow-born Father John M. Winder. for seven years parish priest of the church at Bur- gess Hill, ussex. He succeeds the late Monsignor Cullen. Fath- er Winder was educated for a time at the college of which he becomes president. He was or- dained in Lisbon during the last war. Between 1920 and 1933 he was Supel and professor of moral theoTjgy at :he college. our Seminary will become more a part of the life of the Diocese as the faithful participate in the prayers and devotions of the fa- culty and student body. The Seminary has needs and many will want to share in bountiful blessings of its progress. The faithful will be invited to take part in the Corpus Christi procession, and will join the stu- dents and faculty along the route of the temporary Way of the Cross, where erection of perman-, ent stations is hoped. On the Feast of St. Mark, the faithful will take part in the blessing of the grounds. A demonstration of the indebtedness towards our priests will be mani- fest in an out-door Mass to be celebrated by the first priest or- dained from St. John's, on the an- niversary of his ordination if pos- sible. At this field Mass, the newest deacon and sub-deacon will assist, in the presence of Hi$ Excellency, who ordained them. All these out-door exercises will serve to point out the inade- quacy of the chapel and will in- spire perhaps, the beginning of a new chapel. The physical work of the students, their care in beautifying the Seminary glTounds will be brought home in greater appreciation to the Diocese. Only an explanahon of daily routine and Seminary life will tell the story that lay people want te hear, and this is the program for the new year. The Anniversary Solemn High Mass of Requiem for the repose of the soul of the Rt. Rev. Msgr. W. H. Aretz, the beloved former Rector of St. John's Seminary was sung this morning by the present Rector, the Rt. Rev. Msgr. James P. Gaffney. Deacon and sub- deacon of the Mass were the Very Rev. Msgr.
