St. Mary's is playing a six-game schedule, with California and U.S.L.A. included. From St. Mary's, by the' way, comes an interesting yarn about the esteem in which the campus holds Podesto of Modesto -- Johnny Podesto, the Gael's great! forward-passing and running back of the last few seasons. Podesto isn't chucking the ball for Old St. Mary's any more. The Marines have transferred him to the College of the Pacific, a fact which wasn't maddening to the Grand Old Man of Football, Amos Alonzo Stagg. But what we started to say is that at St. Mary's, the student council; acting without precedent in a school that is rich with tradi- tion, voted to retire No. 73, the jersey worn by Modesto's Podesto. It has urged that the jersey be preserved, and that the number never again be worn by a player at St. Mary's.

High School football in Arkan- sas has started with a bang and thus far it looks like a successful season. The boys are not as big and rugged looking as in the days that used to be, but that is prob- ably because Uncle Sam checks up on dates of birth with a little more accuracy than did some ath- letic directors. Catholic High School of Little Rock got away to a good start before the home folks last Friday.

To Meet Monday, Oct. 11 The Catholic High School P.T.A. will hold its first meeting of the school year on Monday afternoon, October llth at 2:30 in room 210. It is most necessary that all moth- ez:s not only enroll in the P.T.A. but also be present at each meet- ing. Only in this way can close cooperation between the school and home, parents and teachers, be effected for the best interest of the student. In the past this organization has been a substantial financial aid to the institution, but it is the desire of the faculty for the or- ganization to take its proper place as a consulting and instructional agency as well as to continue its substantial support of the school and all that it represents. At this meeting officers for the coming year will be appointed andx a suitable practical program will be inaugurated for the re- mainder of the school year. Every mother should be present. The programs developed for Arkansas Week by the student body met with such a ready re- sponse on the part of the students and faculty that it has been found necessary to carry the develop- ment of the program over for this week. The number of papers presented have carried with them such a high standard of research and originality that their produc- tion could only have been carried out by one whose interests were deep in his subject. The success of the program to date as well as its need has caused the faculty to feel that it should b incor- porated in our yearly curriculum. It is to the youth of our State that we must look for tomorrow's leadership, and consequently early inoculation in the true val- ues of our beloved State is not only a necessary part of their edu- cation, but mandatory if the State's future is to materialize in Rockets Tromp Atkins 45-0 For Decisive Victory Friday Playing a very classy game from the Reelect 45 to the Atkins both offensively and defensively the Catholic High Rockets defeat- ed much lighter Atkins Red Devils team, 45-0, in the North Little Rock High School Stadium last Friday night. Captain Murdoch, who was in- jured during the game, and Quart- erback Tackett were the leading players on the Atkins eleven. Catholic High got off to a fast start. Forced to .kick from the Red Devil 45 yard stripe, the Rocket's fullback, Bill Oberle, pounced on the' fumbled punt. Oberle then passed to Halfback Johnny Vick for the touchdown. The try for conversion was wide. In the second quarter, Vick in- tercepted a long pass from Mur- doch to start a touchdown drive from the Catholic High 38. Danny Sarna, speedy Rocket quarter- back, carried to the 42 yard-line. Vick followed up with an end sweep, which took the ball to the Red Devil one-yard stripe. Oberle plunged it over. The half ended the score, 12-0. Forced to punt after failing to gain, the Atkins eleven was quick- ly set on its heels. Oberle plunged 5. Sarna made the touchdown. Again the point after  touchdown was missed. Almost immediately afterward, the Catholic High team scored again. A pass from Saraaa to Oberle at mid-field connected for the score. Gilmore, the hard- blocking right half-back, made the score 25-0, as the third quart- er ended. On the first play of the 4th period, Sarna tossed another touchdown pass; this time to the speedy Vick. A pass from Sarna to Duncan, big 200-pound right end, accounted for the extra point. Catholic Higta's second team came in then and accounted for the two final touchdowns. Blaty, sub-quarterback, rounded left end for 30 yards and a score. Blaty plunged for the extra point. With less than 30 seconds to score, Barthol plunged for the final touchdown from the Atkins 2-yard line. A pass for extra point failed. The scrappy Rockets journey to Searcy tonight to play the Searcy Lions. A good game is exuected. Posses Credited With Trojan Victory Over Bauxite Miners Subiaco.--Passing paid off au- spiciously as the Trojans of Su- biaco Academy bagged their open- ing game, 14 to 6, shading the strong Miners at Bauxite last Fri- day. The Benedictines of Su- biaco, going in as the underdogs, emerged at the top of the heap mainly by virtue of accurate pas- sing by Hoot Lueken, only starter left from last season, and the sticky fingers of Louis Hartmeier, Jr., a substitute end who did the hero act when the chips were down. Hartmeier caught two pretty passes that directly set up the only two counters the Trojans bagged that evening. The green Subiaco team got away to a bad start, and within two minutes had been nicked for six big points by the upsurging Bauxite Miners. On a beautiful play, the Bauxite left end got away for a thirty yard run to goal. The Miners had been liberally shoving the Trojans around just previously. Bauxite's attempted conversion from placement was blocked by an infuriated Subiaco outfit, still possessed of the old fight that had made them unde- feated last year. Subiaco braced, and Bauxite, though always a real threat, never got much closer than the 15 thereafter. Subiaco was on the two-yard stripe when play ended at the half. A signal mix- up by a new center robbed them of a scoring chance at this junc- ture. Strength of the Bauxite team, which outweighed the Tro- jans, is reflected in the fact that the score card gives them 14 first downs to Subiaco's 9. The Tro- jans won by taking to the air af- ter they found Bauxite not so strong on pass defense. About 8 of every ten yards made by Su- biaco came off passes and runs following passes, and both touch- downs bounced off pass plays. Score in Second and Third Subiaco's first score came in second quarter, when Hartmeier took a dandy pass on the 20 and ran to the three with the oval clutched in his arms. Lueken shoved the ball over off tackle. Lueken also got the extra point by smacking the line. This put the Trojans ahead by one lone point. Subiaco scor, ed again in hird quarter off a pass play. Hart- meier took a short one just be- hind the line, lateralled to Lue- ken, who came rushing in, and Lueken went 26 yards to goal un- hindered. Lueken ran the ball for the extra point. Final score Subiaco 14, Bauxite 6. The Subiaco victory is hailed as somewhat a moral win as well as a technical decisiom+ in favor of the Benedictines. Bauxite, re- garded a dark horse of the non- conference this year, was picked by a leading sports writer to win, 19-6. The Trojans were well con- tent with their 14 points and a victory against a team that did indeed show marked strength in the line and a good offensive at times. Coach Maus started the follow- i'fig players: Bornhoft, le, Wirtjes, it, Sylvester, lg, Goebel, c., Wie- derkehr, rg, Lescault, rt, Oliver, re, Lueken, lh, Gorrel, rh, Savary, qb, DeSalvo, lb. His only sub- stitutions were Hartmeier for Bornhoft, Noble for DeSalvo, Dewing for Goebel, Ward for Les- cault. The Subiaco boys play Benton at Benton Friday night (Oct, 1).

(N.C.W,C.), Saint Boniface School Observes "Arkansas Week" Fort Smith.--The week of Sep- tember 19, taaving been designated as "Arkansas Week" in all the parochial schools throughout' the diocese by the Mos{ Reverend Bishop, was spent in putting forth every effort to comply with his desire. The purpose of this week was to secure a better knowledge of and appreciation for our beloved state, not only for the natives but also for the misinformed new- comers, that they may get a right conception of the "Wonder State". This week was devoted to re- search work of the resources, his- tory, government, occupations, in- dustries and products of Arkansas. This knowledge was applied to making posters and booklets in the shape of the state, collecting pictures of scenic spots, outstand- ing buildings, and occupations found throughout the state. These works of the various classes were exhibited in their respective class- rooms. The strains of "Arkansas", our state song, occasionally rever- berated throughout the school. The meaning of the state flag was studied in connection with art projects: the blue and white starred diamond signifying that Arkansas is the only state with a diamond mine; the twenty-five white stars that it was the twenty- fifth state to be admitted to the Union; the three bue stars below the word "Arkansas" that it was the third state from the Louisiana Purchase and also that it has be- longed to three nations, Spain, Meeting In Store Brings Woman Gift Of Missal Washington. (IC)--"How can I begin to thank you for the lovely Missal?" Thus asks Madame Jeanne Jaspan, a French woman now living in this country, in a letter to Mrs. Mary Eben, a secre- tary at the White House here, thanking Mrs. Eben for the gift of a Missal in the French lang- uage. Madam Jaspan is at present liv- ing at St. Petersburg, Florida. During a conversation with Mrs. Eben one day in the Washington shop where Madame Jaspan was working as a seamstress, the lat- ter spoke of sad news concerning relatives in France, of the need of prayer, and of her difficulty in following the Mass without a French Missal. Mrs. Eben there- upon determined to procure such a Missal for her friend if one could be found. She appealed to the National Catholic Welfare Con- ference, which assisted her in finding a French Missal. "I am mystified and over- whelmed with joy and gratitude," Madame Jaspan writes. "Such a beautiful book, so fine in every detail. Let me tell you how it brought me back to the time when I was a little girl. This book con- tains prayers that my father re- cited to all of us, and I must ad- mit I had forgotten. Wbrds and music I heard him sing Ume and time again, so beautiful and so rich in memory. Yes, I shall treasure this gift all my life." France, and the United States; the blue star above the word '[Ark- ansas" is for the Confederacy. MODEL CAFE Ozark; Arkansas 11 Compliments of VICK'S B.
