"Immured in the heart of the capital of a belligerent pow- e,' it is easy to understand why every secular action taken by the Pope, and every public word he speaks, must be weighed by him with almost inhibiting circum- spection. "Yet Pope Plus, who was elect- ed to his historic office only six months before the outbreak of this war, has with increasing vigor been demonstrating that the dif- ficulties by which he is oppressed will not be allowed to stulify the influence which is his not only as Supreme Pontiff, but also as the man of outstanding integrity and character which he so clearly is. "The non-Catholic as well as the Catholic world may well be grate- ful that in this period of disaster the Roman Church is under the direction of a spiritual leader who feels his responsibility to humanity so deeply. Plus XII is clearly no intimidated 'prisoner of the Vati- i can.'

Bacon and Eggs Get tlking to anybody who travels the coaches or the busses. Ask them about the present and about the future. They are think- ing of land and of a simpler econ- omy for living. There must be logic and good sense in the philosophy of the Rural Life Conference. It re- presents the vox pop. I met him on the Peoria Rocket. He had been home in southern Illinois and was sleepy after travelling in a bus ,.most of the night. He was a guard at the Joliet prison with a fairly good salary, nice hours, but not "enough work." The train was whizzing by vil- lages and farm houses. I was Sunday every first Sunday the Sodalists will sing the Blessed Vir- gin Mass by Struble, at the parish church. After Mass they will as- semble in the Sisters Convent Chapel for an hour's adoration be- fore the Blessed Sacrament. A social activity of the sodality was a weiner roast, held after their Communion Mass' Sept. 27, on the Academy lawn. Father J. Milan, chaplain, Father W. J. Kordsmeier, Pastor o f Blessed Sacrament Church, and Father J. McDonnell, Assistant Pastor, were guests. admiring the tall corn, the fat cattle, the lumbering pigs, the abundance of food that will win the war and write the peace.

Compliments Of American New Bishop In Haiti Vatican City. (E)--The rector of a United States seminary, the Very Rev. John Louis Collignon, O.M.I., has been named Bishop of Les Cayes, Haiti by His Holiness Pope Plus XII. This See has been vacant since November, when the Most Rev. Francois Joseph Person died ten days after he succeeded as Coad- jutor to Bishop Pichon, aged 76, who retired because of ill health. The new Bishop of Les Cayes, now Rector of St. Eugene's Schol- asticate at Natick, Mass., in the Archdiocese of Boston, made his first vows as an Oblate of Mary Immaculate at Hudson, N.H., on July 25, 1926. His final vows were made at Roviano, Italy, on August 2, 1929, and he received the de- gree of doctor in philosophy at Rome in 1930, and the licentiate in theology in 1932. His earlier edu- cation for the priesthood was re- ceived at Sacre Coeur Juniorate and St. Joseph's Scholasticate in Ottawa. He was ordained at Rome in Santa Maria sopra Mi- nerva by His Eminence Francesco Cardinal Marchetti-Salvagiani on June 28, 1931. The parents of Bishop Collignon, Mr. and Mrs. Ferdinand Collignon, reside in Pawtucket, R.I. Their son, however, was born at Suxy, [,uxembourg Province, Belgium, August 15, 1904. We need never be useless; a pious word, a kind act, a modest demeanour, an effectionate smile are seeds which we can let fall at any moment and which always bear abundant fruit. Habit is like the little snow- flake which, falling on the moun- tain, seemed ready to melt, but, having mingled' with other flakes, has helped to form the avalanche which may soon crush us. PAGE SEVEN Trojans Trounce Searcy 34-6: Suffer Casualties Subiaco. -- Returning Searcy's opening kickoff for a touchdown, the Subiaco Academy Trojans, de- :pite injuries they had suffered in me Stuttgart game, went on to pile up a 34-to-6 score against the White county boys at Searcy, last criday night. The Searcy boys proved to be very good sports and played clean, hard football, but were outclassed. In former years this team showed up strong iu non-conference circles, and the Trojans had looked for much tougher opposition than t he y found. Searcy paid the Subiaco boys the tribute of calling them the hardest charging teams they had met in three years. ! Phil (Duke) Herlcin, ace Su, biaco back, took the Searcy kick- off from the ten to midfield and i there lateralled to Joe Spinnen- weber, slat-like, swivel-hipped spinning back, who kept on with- out let or hindrance to the goal line. Spinnenweber is beginning to break into the line-up after re- covering from an appendix opera- tion. Duke Herlein kicked the extra point. Subiaco scored again in first quarter when Hurlin' Phil Herlein unloosed a 30-yard pass to his brother, Eddy Herlein, who step- ped across the goal with the pig- skin. P. Herlein and E. Herlein did their famed brother-act pass for the extra point, to make it a touchdown pass with trimmings. Early in second quarter, Phil Herlein broke through the Searcy line to score on a 25-yard run. Frank Gorrell, Jr., son of Mayor Frank H. Gorrell of Subiaco, took a Herlein pass for the extra point. The Trojans scored again in sec: ond quarter when Chugging Chuck Barclay ran fifteen yards around right end for the fourth touch- down. Philip Herlein kicked the extra' point. During third quarter, with the xeserves dotting the line-up, the team charged to the Lions' 30- yard stripe, and from there Philip Herlein spiralled another of his long passes into the waiting arms of Eddy Herlein, who gathered the ball in behind the goal line for Subiaco's fifth and final score, Eddy failed on his attempt to con- vert from placement. The Searcy Lions, their roar muffled all evening, finally got under way in fourth quarter and went downfield on passes for their only touchdown. They failed to make extra point, and game ended at 34 to 6 to give the Subiaco team its second victory in two starts. The Trojans starters were: Ed Herlein, le, Frank Jerona, lt, James Murphy, lg, Joe Sieben- morgen, c, John Nolte, rg, Ralph Sacra, rt, Frank Gorrell, re, Wal- ter (Chick) Nolte, qb, Chuck Bar- clay, ih, Joe Spinnenweber, rh, Philip Herlein, lb. Substitutions: Ralph Oliver, re, George Wirtjese, rt, Joe Paladino, lt, Julius Burn- side, c, Matt Post, rh, Norbert Gor- tell, lh. i Carl (Hoot) Luken, halfback, and Heinie DeSalvo, tackle, injur- ed in the Stuttgart game, are mending satisfactorily. Luken ex- pects to play in a few weeks again end his presence will greatly bolst- i er the Trojan backfield. DeSalvo, who looked like a coming all-state tackle, is out for the season with a whole year clipped from his playing' record. The Center Ridge boy is the campus hero of the hour for the great game he played at Stuttgart and the smiling manner in which he is taking his temporary setback. Benedictine Clerics Receive MinorOrders Subiaco.  Five clerics at New Subiac 0 seminary received minor orders in the abbey chapel at the hands of the Rt. Rev. Paul M.
