Methodist Urges Crowd to Motor Chapel Services Lacrosse, Va. (E) -- The record crowd that attended the first ser- vice of the Diocesan Missionary Fathers at their St. Mary-of-the Highways Motor Chapel here was accounted for, in great part, by the promotional activities of a Methodist Sunday School teacher. This is a small town and the temperature the night of the first service was in the high fifties, chilly weather for Virginia in Sep- tember. Nevertheless, the congre- gation of the missioners was "ca- pacity" and the number of non- Catholics was large. All of this was not due to the window posters, handbills and press publicity announcing the ad- vent of fhe priests. These an- nouncements were effectively sup- plemented by Dr. W. W. Wilkinson, a doctor of medicine, town drug- giest and Sunday school teacher at the local Methodist church. The preceding Sunday Dr. Wilkinson strongly urged his class to attend the services of the missionaries chapel car for the purpose of meet- ing the priests anad learning some- thing of their religious "grand- mother," his designation for the Catholic Church. He explained the Methodists stemmed from the Episcopolians and the latter from the Catholics. He also told his class they also could learn some- thing of behavior hand reverence by attending the Catholic services. Insurance S. S. A.

Ingenius Nun Supplies Bread For Internees Maryknoll, N. Y. (E)--The in- genuity of a Maryknoll Sister in- terned in Hong Kong who, given one precious yeast cake, envolved a method of culturing yeast from sweet potato peelings, made il possible for a large number of American internees to enjoy the luxury of bread. As a result, not only of confiscation, but also of unauthorized looting, there was a critical scarcity of food in Hong King after its surrender. This hardship was shared by all, wheth- er or not interned. What the Americans missed most was bread. There was great re- joicing, therefore, when after sev- eral weeks of breadless diet, some bags of flour were provided for the American internees. One of these, a Maryknoll priest, managed to secure a single yeast cake. The delicate task of developing from this a continuous supply of yeast for future use was enl.rusted to the Maryknoll Sisters. Sister Mary Conzaga, of New Rochelle, N. Y., who had twelve years experience meeting similar emergencies in the interior of South China, solved the problem by making a fresh batch of yeast daily from sweet potato parings she begged from the central kitchen. The incident is related by Mary- knoll Sisters who recently return- ed to the United States from the Orient aboard the repatriation ship, Gripisholm, among whom was Sis- ter Conzaga. The greater part of her twelve years in China has been spent in training native Chinese Sisters. Last summer she was transferred from this work in the interior to the'City of Hong Kong, where she':weathered the siege and several months' intern- ment.

(N,W.C& Revoke Mailing Refugees Reunited In America BroWnsville, Tex. (N:) -- Three years of perilous wanderings ended for a refugee Czecho-Slovak fam- ily when the mother of the family arrived here by airplane from Panama. She was greeted by the Rev.

The order, issued following heara ings in which the publisher sought: to show cause why the mailing privileges should not be revoked, charges that specified articles and pictures in the last three issues described as indecent were "a consistent, sustained, and systema- tic feature of this publication which, by plain import of language and pictures, 'are no more than an appeal to the salaciously dis- posed' and show clearly that the publication was 'plainly designed to catch the prurient.'" The order further charges that the National father, mother and eleven-year- old daughter--included two sink- ingby submarines and rescues at sea.. Eventually they reached Panama with only enough funds to buy one adult and one half-fare ticket to the United States. The father had a position as a chemical engineer await,rig him in Ohio.
