Extension Magazine Representative Now In Little Rock Little Rock.--Mr. Thomas J. Harrigan, representative of the Catholic Church Extension Soc- iety, is calling on the Catholic peo- ple of Greater Little Rock at present. Mr. Harrigan seems plcsed because there are some five hundred subscribers to the Extension Magazine in the Capital City. The faithful of the Diocese of Little Rock are interested' in the work of the Extension Society and its magazine is very popular in the homes. This Society has given many a thousands of dollars to- wards the advancement of the mis- sions here. The Church in Arkan- sas is deeply indebted to Extension and the faithful everywhere seem to be well aware of this fact and thereby welcome the visit of the Extension representative. Mr. Harrigan carries approved n'edentials of the Extension So- ciety and also a letter verifying the approval of Bishop Morris and the astors. He will be in Little Rock for about the next three weeks. Canada Missioner Dies Of Cancer In Africa Montreal. (E)--Word has been received by the White Fathers of Africa here of the death of the Rev.

He was born in Dor- chester county, Quebec. men, and this custom is lauded by the Chancellor. "It is of utmost importance for the historical records of the Ca- tholic Church in the U.S.A., and because of its apologetic value, that we establish, as in the last war, "The Catholic Honor Roll of the Nation" said Monsignor. ',The Most Reverend Archbishop Ed- ward Mooney of Detroit is in charge of this undertaking. Our Most Reverend Bishop has re- ceived a request from him that we supply the information from the Diocese of Little Rock." Msgr. Scheper has requested that great care be employed in sub- mitting this information, so the records will be accurate. "New names are to be added to this list as men and women are called to service. Names of those who die while in the armed ser- vice, and those listed as missing, should be noted. The above in- formation is to be sent to the Chancery Office semi-annually, namely on November 1st. and May lst., for the duration," the Chan- cellor's letter read. The Guardian intends to co- operate with the Chancery Office and "The Catholic Honor Roll of the Nation" in giving proper pub- licity to the Diocesan participation of Catholics in the war effort. The plan at present includes publica- tion in The Guardian of lists of servicemen from each parish in the Diocese. / Bp. Danglmayr I I(onsecrated I Wednesday Dallas, Tex. ()"The abundant life announced by Our Lord con- sists in justice, liberty and Char- ity. In the harmonious union of these three virtues we find the sum total of man's dignity, the means to eternal life, and the aim of the ministry of our Bishops and our priests." : This declaration was made Tues- day night by His Excellency the Most Rev. Amelto Giovanni Cicog- nani, Apostolic Delegate to the United States, in an address de- livered at civic reception to the Rt. Rev. Msgr. Augustine Dangl- mayr, whom Archbishop Cicog- Little Rock--His Excellency, the Most Reverend Bishop, ac- companied by his Auxiliary, Bishop Fletcher, and members of the Little Rock clergy, at- tended the Episcopal consecra- tion on Wednesday morning, in the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart, DaIlas, of His Excellency, Bishop Danglmayr, T i t u 1 a r Bishop of Olba and Auxiliary Bishop Dallas. Among mem- bers of the clergy accompanying the Little Rock Bishops were: the Rt. Rev. Msgr. H. H. Wer- nke, V. F., the Very Rev. Msgr. Edw. P. Garrity; the Rt. Rev. Msgr. Jos. A. Gallagher, and the Rev. Jos. A. Murray. nani Wednesday consecrated' Titu- lar Bishop of Olba and Auxiliary j to the Most Rev. Joseph P. Lynch, Bishop of Dallas. Contrasting the essentials of this abundant life with the promises of many "self-styled champions of human rights," Archbishop Cicognani said: "Every movement for the pro- tection of human rights exerts a fascinating appeal on the public mind. This is the constant promise of all those who aim at the ac- quisition of power. Many of these self-styled champions of hu- man rights, however, under the il- lusion that these rights can best be safeguarded by restricting moral and spiritual values, have See CONSECRATION on page 5 Chaplain Pays Tribute To Piety Of Yanks In Australia 'San Antonio. {E)--Tribute to the alert sounded, saying he heard piety of non-Catholic as well as Catholic men in the armed forces of the United States in Australia was paid here by the Rev. Edward J. Burns, O.M.I., United States Army chaplain and former pastor of St. Anthony's Apostolic College, this city. Father Burns, a captain, back from duty with American troops in Australia, addressed the fac- ulties and students of St. Anthony's College and De Mazenod Scholas- ticate at the college concerning his experiences in Australia. His group was the first American con- tingent to set foot on Australian soil. He told how he would' go with the American fliers as they raced  to their planes in jeeps when an many confessions of men in jeeps while the cars were travelling at "breakneck speed." Many non- Catholic fliers, he Said, seated in their planes ready to take off, ask- ed Father Burns to bless them "for we don't know what the fu- ture holds in store for us, Padre," they commented. "I have never seen such relig- ious fervor as was shown by the men in my outfit." Father Burns went on. "They attended Mass regularly, received the Sacrament of Penance and approached the Holy Table very, very often. Re- ligious devotions were attended regularly, so much so that our chapel was wholly inadequate to accommodate all." On October 12, 1942, the 450th anniversary of the discovery o America by "The Great Navi- gator," Christopher Columbus, will be celebrated throughout th" Americas.

Priest,iCai'0000olic Scientist Propose Mobilization Of Laboratories Of Nc00tion For War Program Washington ()Through the di- recting efforts of the Dean and Director of the Institutum Divi Thomae, Cincinnati, a plan has been drafted to enroll the 200,000 scientists of this country in the winning o the most scientifically waged war of all time. The Very Rev. Msgr. Cletus A. Miller, Dean, and Dr. George Speri Sperti, Director of the In- stitutum, have been in Washing- ton for several month directing plans, in which they have had the cooperation of a number of the country's leading scientists and most influential Government of- ficials, for the formation of an Of- fice of Technical Development which will function under the War Production Board. This proposed federal agency, for which it is proposed that $100, 000,000 be appropriated to carry out its program, would concern it- self with research into such vital problems as rubber, food and nu- trition, drugs, textile, dehydrated packaging, transportation, and ,ubstitute materials in many con- struction fields. 'the Institutum Divi Thomae, founded seven years ago by the Most Rev. John T. McNicholas, O. P., Archbishop of Cincinnati, has established itself in an outstand- ing position among the scientific research centers of the country and has won acclaim for its important discoveries. Assisting Monsignor Miller and Dr. Sperti in their drafting of the plan were outstanding scientists in fields generally associated with the nation's war needs. The proposed Office of Techni-- cal Development, as the plan of Monsignor Miller and Dr. Sperti suggests, would direct the work of the nation's scientists in accord- anee with war aims and needs. Conference of Scout Chaplains Is Canceled Chicago. (IC) -- Because of war ccnditions, the Ninth Annual Con- terence of Diocesan Scout Chap- lains, scheduled to be held here October 7 to 10, has been cancelled. Father W a 1 t e r Chehninsk Chairman of the Conference, an- nounced that the cancellation came following a direct request from ra'hinon officials. The Office would have authority to carry on technical developments to tim production line. A development of the work of Monsignor Miller and Dr. Sperti is seen in the recent reports of a Presidential Committee to investi- gate the rubber situation, which recommended "an increase in the L production of butadiene by 1OO,- 000 tons to be obtained from a re- finery conversion program more commonly known as 'qui6k buta- diene.' " Dr. Maurice B. Cooke, who was a special assistant in the prepaara- tion of the report proposing the formation of the Office of Techni- cal Development, was the first to urge the "quick butadiene" pro- cess, in January last, for the mak- ing of synthetic rubber. This process utilizes refinery equipment rendered idle by the lessened de- mand for gasoline. Development and eperimenta- tion with various phases of huge cargo planes is another function O f the Office of Technical Devel- opment as proposed in the plan drafted by Monsignor Miller, Dr. I Sperti and their collaborators.

The first Mass since the estab- lishment of the mission was cele- brated last Sunday by the Rev. N. Charles McGinnis, of Little Rock, Near 50 persons, who had foTner- ly driven to Little Rock or Mal- vern,, for Sunday Mass, were pres- ent in the courtroom of the Saline County courthouse for the Holy Sacrifice. Father McGinnis comes from the oldest mission in the Diocese to " the newest, for formerly he was assistant at St. Joseph's Church, Pine Bluff, where he had the care of St. Mary's Church, near Ark- ansas Post, and the Diocese's old- est church. Mass will be celebrated each Sunday at 8:30 at the courthouse in Benton, Father McGinnis said. Since January, 1941, Benton has i been attached to the Malvern Mission, which is attended from Little Rock. Sunday's Holy Sacri- fice in Benton is the first recorded in Diocesan history, although it is believed that Mass was cele- brated many years ago for a time in a private home.
