St. Mary's Aca- demy, has been awarded "All- Catholic" Honors, the highest rat- ing granted by the Catholic School Press Association.

During the past year, 379 Catholic training schools for nurses had an enrollment of 27,979 student nurses or about s one-third of all the student nurses that are in training schools in this country. Efficiency experts might be able to figure out why Catho- i lie hospitals can do so much more! with what equipment they have l than can the other hospitals. The l chances arc that they could not because they would not consider the most important element in the success of the Catholic hospitals. It is the religious lives of the sis- ters and brothers, who conduct these institutions. They know wherein lies their success. It is in prayer and good works. Christ is the head of each of these hos- pitals, because he dwells in each of them in the Blessed Sacra- l ment. During His earthly life He labored among the sick and He still does it through the instru- mentality of the good religious, who labor in His name. These good men and women work for no salary. They have no union hours or forty-hour week. They work unceasingly for God. In this life, even, they are happy because they help to rebuild the bodies of those unfortunates who come to their door. Most of all do they rejoice at tile good they are able to do for immortal souls. Always, too, they are busy fostering vocations, so that other strong young hands may take up the work of mercy, when they have grown old and feeble in the service of the Master. Mayor LaGuardia touches upon so many different ntters that get his name in the news, that the law of averages brings it about that sooner or later he is bound to be right about something. And it did happen. Recently in a radio broadcast, he stated that it is a fundamental need of educa- tional system that children be taught good manners. Not long ago some one complained in one of our local papers about the rowdy conduct of certain children who boarded a street car and jos- tled their elders around. One passenger happened to be an old lady. Not only did not one of the youngsters offer her a seat, but they actually shoved her around and annoyed her very much. It is part of the training in every good school to teach the children politeness. However, we must not be too quick to place the blame upon the teachers. There was a time, not so long ago, when ultra modern educators condemned the notion of teaching the children to be respectful. They forbade teachers to insist upon such titles of respect as "Sir" and "Ma'am" saying that the use of such re- spect was apt to engender a spirit of servility in the youths. This is just one of the many erroneous otions that modern pedagogues have propagated. Such errors spread much quicker than do sound principles and they soon reached the home where they have been accepted by stupid parents under the guise of pro- gressive education. So the teach- era have not only to contend with "crack pots" in the fields of high- er education, but with parents who have developed brain storms also. The modern notion of equality between the sexes has done more than anything else to disparage the teaching of good manners to the school children. Women have tried to emphasize their indepen- dence by refusing to accept any acts of gallantry from men. The men have finally become disgust- ed about the whole affair and have decided to let the women "stand up for their rights" on street ears, buses and elsewhere. Yet lives that are devoid of court- esy and consideration for others are barren lives. Striving to bring happiness to others brings it to ourselves. NCCS Instructor Cries On As Home Burns To Ground Washington.

A few min- utes later she was on her way to the USO Club at Aberdeen, Md., to conduct a pottery class, while the flames enveloping the 102- year-old family home of the Honores leveled the structure to the ground. The fire started while Miss Honore and her parents were working in the garden. Wear- ing her house slippers at the time, Miss Honore was unable to get back into the house to salvage a pair of shoes, In addition to eaching pottery and clay model- ing classes at the NCCS-operated Women's Division Club at Mid- dle River, Maryland, she also in- structs at the Aberdeen club, where Miss Mary Kelly represents NCCS. p Mistakes are--stepping stones over the brook of accomplishment. aminers under the auspices of Marquette University School of Journalism, the score showed a predominence of "E" grades for excellence. Special comment was made in praise of the theme of the book. The motif, drawn by Rose Marie Bernardi, showed the shield of the Sisters of Mercy from which rays flowed out onto a stack of I books and a globe of the world. The drawing suggested the quota- tion from Shakespeare on the "Quality of Mercy" which "Bles-i seth him that gives and him that. takes." The theme thus illustrat- ed the quality of mercy as a part of Catholic education, blessing teachers and students, in that the latter go out into the world pre- pared to give to others that which has so fully been given to them. The '*Mercian", with Rita Weny as editor, was the work of fifteen senior staff members. The "Mount", the academy monthly newspaper, has been the holder of an "All-Catholic" Hon- ors rating for the past three years and also "International First Hon- ors", the highest award granted by Quill and Scroll, honorary so- ciety for high school journalists, sponsored by Northwestern Uni- versity. Helen Louise MacCulloch will edit the "Mount" for this year. The first issue will appear in October. Other members of the l staff will be announced in a few days. The Society For i The Propagation I Of The Faith i WE PLAN TIlE FUTURE ] Today as we read of the "pro- tection" which has cut off the Sovereign Pontiff from his,people in every part of the world, our minds revert to that scene in Pi- late's courtyard. There the blood- stained Figure of Christ, isolated from His followers and friends, was "protected" by the Roman soldiery. He stood alone, waiting to begin the most tragic trip in history-- the trip which was to terminate upon the heights of Cal- vary. But, paradoxically, that loneliness, thot tragedy, was m reality the greatest triumph of all time, for, had there been no death upon Golgotha's cross, there would have been no resurrection on Easter morning. Now Christ's Vicar, isolated from the millions of his children, is undergoing he agonies of His beloved Master. His heart, long- ing to bring all peoples .to God's knowledge and love, grmves for those engaged in this terrific war. He yearns for the dawn. of peace when the mssionaries will be al- lowed to expand their endeavors in every part of the world. But deep in his heart is the assurance that the present is but the pre- lude for the glorious future---the Easter dawning for the whole hu- man race. Without being able to contact you, his beloved children in America, he relies upon you to make hat assurance an imme- diate reality. This Mission Sun- day he may not be at liberty to appeal to you personally to con- tribute your prayers and yore alms to The Society lot the Propa- gation of the F_aith, but he calls upon you silently and prays that you will not turn a deaf ear to his plea.. Fray for the Missions on Octo- ber 24th next and give for their support remembering that now is the time to plan for the future of Christ's church throughout the world.' THE FORMER MARINE Our readers may recall the story printed_here some months ago concermng the former Ma- rine who has now joined the ranks of the Society of African Missions. A letter from this new- ly ordained priest informs that since July 9th he has been in A- lanta, Ga., as Assistant to Rev. F. J, Weiss, pastor of Our Lady of Lourdes Church. "Ours is the only Catholic Church for the col- ored among more than 200,000 Negroes in Atlanta," writes Fath- or Mulvey, "so you know we are kept mighty busy.". This apostolate among the Ne- groes is but one phase of mis- sion endeavor but it is concrete example of the need for aid on the part of our people, partic- ularly on Mission Sunday when 40c of every dollar collected is used for the support of home mis- sions. There are no limits to the vis- Ion of Christ--there must be no limits to the charity of America to fulfill that vision of Christ wherein He sees at His feet the children of every race and color united in their love for Him.

STRANGE BUT TRUE According to the records of the ancient Councils of Africa epis- copal consecrations were so num- erous at Carthage that they were performed every Sunday of the year. During this period twelve I Bishops acted as consecrators. Eventually the Bishops of the See found themselves over-whelmed by the necessity  of assembling every week at the call of their Metropolitan. Then it was that the number of consecrating Bish- ops was reduced from twelve to three, a practice which continues Teen-Age Battleground In School, Not Work Brooklyn. (E)The battleground of Catholic boys of high school age is in school to prepare them- selves to be the Catholic leaders of the future, Rev. Patrick Walsh, O.P., of the Dominican Missionary Band, told the students of Brook- lyn Prep, conducted by the Jesuit Fathers, at their annual Mass of the Holy Ghost. "I congratulate you," said Fa- ther Walsh, "on the fact that you have returned to school. You have overcome the common heresy that what everybody is do- ing is therefore a 'must" for you.
