ST. EDWARD'S COUNCIL 2650 KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS St. Edward's Council No. 2650, K. of C. of Texarkana, Arkansas, have about completed arrangements for the Columbus Day Celebration to be held in their hall, October 12th at 8p.m. Music for the occasion will be fur- nished by St. Edward's celebrated student orchestra; directed by Prof. Antonio G6rbino. This orchestra is composed of advanced music pupils of St. Edward's Academy, under the Sisters of Divine Providence, and have made a remarkable reputation since they were organized some few months ago. The principal address of the even- ing will be made by Rev. P. H. Boyle, whose oratorical ability is too well known to need comment. "Father Boyle is a pioneer in Columbianism in our State, being one of the or- ganizers of the Order in Arkansas, and the first State Chaplain. Among the features of the evening will be vocal solos by Mrs. F. M. Whelan, Bro.. Gee. Lansdale, and Bro. R, J. O'Dwyer, accompanied by Mrs. John C. O'Dwyer. Refreshments will be served, and all Knights and their families are cordially invited. ST. FRANCIS OF ASSISI - CHESTERTON'S BIOGRAPHY A new and luxuriously illustrated edition of Gilbert K. Chesterton's biography of St. Francis of Assisi is being published by George H. Doran Company on October 7. The great English Catholic has never written a book of more popularity than this exquisite, humane life of the famous Saint. The illustrations lend it grace and beauty. They are delicately pastel in tone, and with decorative panels give, now, the effect of stain- ed glass windows, now that of hu- man portraiture. The publication of this lovely gift edition calls to mind the fact that the humorists of the world have often been great religion- ists. The early Monks were the tell- ers of amusing stories. Dean Swift astounded the world with his satiri- Cat- pen. Mr. Chesterton and Mr. Belloe, both devout and al- most militant Roman Catholics, are known throughout the world, not only for their serious writ- ing, but for their gay verses and essays, their light tolerance of the world at large. Yet this ha~ never deterred them from an expression of profound mystic conceptions and ideals. One of the most appealing characters in the history of the Church, St. Francis lives again in Mr. Chesterton's portrait in beauty and in truth. 45,000 TICKETS SOLD TO NOTRE DAME GAME STILL TWO MONTHS OFF ers' schedule, Coach Rockne's men apparently will play before capacity crowds every Saturday. When the curtain falls on the 1927 campaign it is estimated that Notre Dame will have played before ap- proximately 450,000 persons, includ- ing probably the largest audience that ever saw a football game' in the Unit- ed States; the kicked and punted pigskin is be-] ing heard daily. This week the Preps will meet up with the team from the Deaf Mute Institute and a good game is expect- ed. It will inaugurate the opening of the Deaf Mutes new field for the year, and the Preps are all keyed up LITTLE ROCK COLLEGE NOTES for a victory. Some of the old faces - [are missing on the Prep team this Athletics I year, notably Walsh, Murray, Willete, Despite the defeat by Hendrix ont Brady and St. John, but the new ones Friday, last, the Little Rock College reporting are expected to live up to Eagles are far from being discour- the reputation established by the aged. In the fii'st place. Coach Mur- phy was handicapped in t~aving to send into the game three of his play- ers who were suffering from illness and injuries. Walsh, stellar Full- back had received a painful injury to his side, just a few days before the game which would have ~lowed up any ordinary man, and would have prevented him from attemptin~ to play the game. Despite that fact, Walsh was sent in and by his playing demonstrated to the large crowd present, that he has lost none of his ability to be reckoned as one of the best full-backs in the state. Big John Sullivan was a sick man before the game, but John had set his heart on being in the game, and he was al- lowed to play for a time. He is now resting comforthbly at St. Vincent's Infirmary, where he wen~ immediate- ly after the game, and in a few days should be in the best of condition. Ed Garbacz, was also suffering from a minor injury, yet Ed played throughout the ~ntire game, and gave one of the best exhibitions that has ever been seen on a local field. I~en- drix with its seasoned veterans came to Little Rock expecting to walk away with the local collegians, but before the game was over, they realized that they had met their match in the Eagles, and were it not for the fact of the above mentioned handicaps which Coach Murphy was laboring under, the final score would have been somewhat different. It was a victory for Coach Murphy and his untried Eagle squad, no matter how one looks at it, and with a little more practise and seasoning, the youngs- ters who are playing under the pur- ple and White colors this year, most of them new to college football will be able to give a good account of Morris Preps last year. Schultz has been elected captain of this year's eleven, and he will lead a splendid looking lot of youngsters with him into the first game of the season. The Preps also hope to establish a record this year, for speed in play, and their first game will be watched with in- terest. Some of the likely looking youngsters who should show up well in the comin~ game. are Haas, Mason, Bray, Schultz, Bedner, Cunningham, Kirspel, Waggoner, McHaney, Raley, Zambie, Minor. and Stutz. Morse is also another who looks good in prac- tise. The Preps are rooting for ~t win in their first start and a large number of Prep rooters will accom- pany them to the game. MAYO MEN'S ASSOCIATION ARRANGING FOR PILGRIMAGE TO CROAGH PATRICK It Was From the Top of This Moun- tain That Ireland's Patron Saint Drove All the Serpents in Ireland Into the Sea. The County Mayo Men's Associa- tion of New York, with the members of their families, and all others who wish to join, will make a pilgrimage to the shrine at Croagh Patrick, Ire- land, next July. William O'Dwyer, prominent in Knights of Columbus circles, will sail for Cobh (Queens- town) before Christmas to make ar- rangements with Cunard Line offi- cials there for an Irish tour which will have Croagh Patrick for its cen- tral point next summer. It was from Croagh Patrick that St. Patrick drove the last snakes from Ireland. Popularly known as "The Reek," it is a mountain 2500 feet high, overlooldng Clew Bay. The ". . , . - , t e beginning of the Col umbian New.Year, we could write of many things that commend ,them- selves to our attention and which if worked out,would prove as land- marks on the path of progress of our Council, yet there is one that we think will prove of paramount inter- est, importance and pleasure to the members at large, the formation of aI First Friday, Knights of Columbus Orchestra.

']?he Good Counsel Lunch Booth at the State Fair is ready for buM- ness. Mrs. A1 Lensing and her vari- ous committees have outlined a sys- tem to enable the workers and help- e ers to be off duty every other day. Each day has a chairman in charge, who looks after the work in the din- ing room and kitchen. The commit- tees invite the Catholics of the state who will attend tho State Fair dur- ing Fair Week to look up our 'lunch room. Look for the sign, "Good Counsel, Catholic Church." themselves. Little Rock College has nothing to be ashamed of, in that game with Hendrix, and if the minor faults which were noted in the game can be eliminated during the next two weeks, Ouachita will meet a worthy foe on the State Fair grid- iron, October 15th; The Eagles had four new and untried ends, in Mar- tin, O'Toole, Harwood and Voelkel. They were pitted against one of the best lines in the state when they met Hendrix, and yet, with all their faults they showed that they have the mak- ings of real college ends, and will go better as they become acquainted with college football. The College l~ack-field could not be improved on. With Walsh, Schneeman, Byrne, Hes- lin, McGowan, Hedges, and a host of others, Coach Murphy has a back- field that will compare favorably, with any in the state. Taking the ball away from the opponent on the one yard line, tells the story of the strength of the Eagle line, and with just a little more seasoning, and practise, and with another game or two tucked away out of sight, the Eagles are going to be just what their followers and supporters want them to be, the best team in the State. Coach Murphy is to be con- gratulated at the showing of his Eagles. They didn't win the game, but they showed that they have the "stuff" and that they will win many a game before the season has passed ~nto history. Saturday will see the Eagles flying to Morrilton to engage with the Hard- ing College of that town. Coach Murphy will have a chance to give some of his youngsters an opportun- ity to show their ability, as he plans to use most of the squad in the game. A large delegation of students and fans will accompany the team. Oua- chita which will be played on the 15th of October at the State Fair Park will no doubt attract a monster crowd. It will be the big attraction of the closing day of the State Fair, and present indications point to one of the largest crowds which ever Pre~' Football ' Not to be outdone by their elders, the Morris Preps, have been buil~ling up a football team that is going to be heard from before the!} season is over. Under the direction of Coach Power, the youngsters have been ,practising every afternoon on the Oval, where the familiar sound of, mountain is regarded as sacred to St. last, we saved him for the last be- Patrick. While sojourning in Cdn- cause he needs so little said of him or his ability when it comes to suc- naught, the Saint was accustomed to spend Lent on the mountain top in fasting and praying. According to tradition, he collected here all the serpents in Ireland and drove them thence into the sea. A hollow in the mountainside is pointed out as the place in which they endeavored in vain to take refuge in their descent. Croagh Uatrick has long been cele- brated as a place of religious pil- grimage. Father Patterson of Westport, in 'charge of the National Pilgrimage to Croagh Patrick in July, 1928, has sent the Mayo Men's Association a letter welcoming the idea of promot- ing a pilgrimage from the United States. Many people from all parts of the United States have been members of parties making recent pilgrimages to the Holy Mountain, and have ex- pressed themselves as having e:~- perienced deep emotion in kneeling in the place where St. Patrick pray- ed, now a venerated spot. While the Mayo Men's Association~ are sponsoring the movement, all who wish to join the pilgrimag~ will be made welcome. One of the new 20,000-ton steam- AMERICAN WOMAN'S BEAUTIFUL GESTURE TOWARDS A.
