F. Neidermaire of the StatiOn Hospital at Camp Robin: son revealed that the service men of this camp near Little Rock are receiving the benefits of the spec- ial dispensation granted by th e Holy Father for the celebration of Holy Mass during evening )hrs. Mass is celebrated in th e t0ilst Med. Training Battalion Chapel by Father Neidermaire on Monday, Wednesday and Friday nights at 7:00 o'clock. His weekday Mass at Base Hospital, is,celebrated:now. at 6:15 a.m. Night Masses are also celebrated byChaDlain Dunne and Claaplain Herlihy, the other two priests in the camp. Besides the great number of Catholic service' men who are at the Base Hospital for treatment, Chaplain Neider- moire says he also has the spiritual care of about 25 Catholic Army Nurses, four of whom are from Little Rock. The greater portion of the Catholic nurses, Father Neidermaire says, are from the Middle West. Local Catholic girls on duty at the Station hospital are the two Misses Drillings, Miss Vroeman and Miss Mary Frances Rufener. Chaplain Neidermaire, who is a member of the Order of the Oblates of St. Francis de Sales, formerly taught at tim Northeast Catholic High school, Philadelphia. The motherhouse of his order in the U.S. is at Salesianum High school. Father Neidermaire stud- ied two years Theology in Switzer- land but was ordained in this country. British Trade Unions Attack School Aid London. (E)-- The view seems to be gaining ground here ;hat the Trades Union Congress will not pursue the attack on the denom- inational schools expressed in a resolution recently passed. The resolution called for the with- drawal of State aid from schools which fail to adopt an agreed syl- labus of religious education. Speaking at Preston the Bishop of Lancaster, the Most Rev. T. Flynn, asked: "What is behind this thing?" and he added that a Catholic school or any denomina- tional school should lose" such in- adequate aid as they are at pres- ent receiving from the State." Although the T.U.C. wields the bargaining force of 6,000,000 or so workers, it has. no mandate to speak from them on political mat- ters which have no direct bearing on industry• Some Catholic union- ists 'have written to their trade journals deploring tlae T.U.C.s ad- venture into the schools question.

"I have been interviewed m different cities of many na- tions," the visiting Prelate said. "but in no ins'tahoe have the re- 'porters been so honorable, so fair, so unsensational, and so generous as the reporters of Rio de Janeiro." Among the distinguished per- sons present at the reception were the Rt. Rev. Msgr. Joaquim Na- buco, the Rev. Leonel Franca, S. J,, Rector of the Catholic Faculties, the Rev. Joao Baptista da Mottae Elbuqterque; United Ambassador to Brazil Jefferson Caffery and the Consul General at Sap Jaulo, Cecil Cross; Minister Laud o de Camarzo and Justice Waldemar alcao; Prof. Joaquim Moreira da bnscea, president of the National Academy of Medicine; Alceu Amaroso Lima, Catholic Action leader anad a member of the Na- tional Academy of Letters; Osorio Lopes, president of the Association of Catholic Journalists, and Herb- err Moses, president of the Brazil- inn Press Association. Monsignor Nabuco and Senhor Moses welcomed Bishop Gannon in English; addrdsses in Portu- guese were made by Senhores Lopes and Amaroso Lima, the lat- ter better known by his pen-name_ Tristan de Atayd'e. "We need to affirm," Senhor Amoroso Lima declared, "not merely that we want America for Americans, or America for the world. We want America for God... the America of Christ, the America baptized in the waters of the mystical Jordan, which makes for true Pan-American unity• Un- less Pan-Americanism is reborn in the waters of a Christian re- generation, it will be nothing more than a movement for economic and political Continentalism, as ephe- meral and as noxious as the totalitarian heresy... And as the Catholic Church is the one ir- reducible and uncompromising de- fender of a supernatural concep- tion of life--individual as well as national or continental--the logi- cal ded'uctiop is that the true Pan- Amercianism is the one that abounds in the application of the eternal principles of both the natural and the revealed law o{ our continental reality ....

There are numerous disgrace- ful 'Jams' masquerading as demo- cracy-not the Christian Democ- racy of Leo XIII. They must be liquidated if the world of tomor- row is to be better than that of today. "To die is easy; to to live is difficult," the speaker con- cluded. "For this reson I re- peat: America is not for Ameri- cans, nor for the world. America is for God, for Christ and for the Spirit. To the extent that she pursues this road, she will have gained or lost her destiny... In the realization 9f these desires, we lhank God for the opportune visit of Your Excellency and that, at this same time, some of our 'leaders are in your great country participat- ing in the Catholic Inter-American Seminar, engaged in elaborating a social program for the new Chris- tianity after this cruel and de- vastating war."

It is hoped at this writ-, ing to have the manuscript oil them in readiness for the printer; not later than November 1. The: Women's Section has also promised to have their proceedings complet- ed by that date, since it was voted at the Convention to print the proceedings of both sections in one book, thus effecting a saving in the cost of printing, each organ- ization sharing in the expense of the book. All societies, individual mem- bers and members of the clergy are welcome to copies of the 1941 State Convention held at Subiaco. Copies of same can be obtained by writing either the president or the Secretary-Treasurer. We are advised by the Central Bureau that in addition to pub- lishing the resolutions adopted at the National Convention at St. Louis, in the September issue of the Social Justice Review. copies of these resolutions are to be mail- ed to the see'y, of each affiliated society. These resolutions should be read at the meetings of each affiliated society, discussed and digested. These resolutions are also excellent material for the use of our study and discussion clubs. Since cooler weather has arrived it is high time to plan and set into effect definite machinery for the carrying out of our program• After you have outlined a plan for the use of your society to effect the desired results to be obtained as a goal for your society, system- atic application will carry it through to fulfillment. This de- finite systematic and continued application is necessary and only by continued effort can the max- imum results be obtained. If all of our affiliated Societies take this program to heart and work on same in this way, the year just begun cannot fail to be the mot outstanding in the way of things accomplished in the history of our state organization. ' Do not delay definite action on your plans, but put them into action by beginning work on same immediately.

THIRD DEGREE COUNCILS The date and place of NEWS ACTIVITIES IN THE STATE OF ARKANSAS Council 1770 John L. McClellan, Democratic nominee for the U.S. Senate, will be principal speaker at the Colum- bus Day banquet at the Catholic Club in Helena on October 12. Plans for the Columbus Day cele- bration have been completed by the council• The Mayor of Helena will issue a proclamation asking that everyone display the Ameri- can Flag in commemoration of the Discovery of America• Prepara- tions are being made for about 200 persons at the banquet as it is Gpen to the public. The menu will be an old fashioned turkey dinner, with all trimmings,, and will be prepared by the ladies o the Senior Altar society. Last Sunday was the regular monthly Communion Sunday or the Knights of this council. Corp. Jack Young, a member of this council, and a member of the Pub- lic Relations Dept. at Robinson, was the speaker, and as usual, he proved very interesting. Forty- nine men received Holy Com- munion en masse, and following Mass were served breakfast by the wives of the Knights. Open house for the cadets of Areo-Tech at Helena was held at the Catholic Club for about 200 cadets and their dates. The young people enjoyed dancing and were served delicious home made cake and sandwiches. Two Catholic boys of Helena who have entered Grand Coteau at New Orleans to study to become :Jesuits, were honored by the Knights of Columbus at a recep- ,tion before their departure. Both are sons of former State Deputies. They are Walter E. Webb, Jr., and Thomas H.
