Father Smith, during his short talk on activities, informed the members that the Rev. James G. Evans, Pro- lessor of Religion, would deliver a sermon on "The Hail Mary" at the next meeting. The following students of the Freshman Literar~ Society were cho- sen to write a theme of five hundred words, taking as their subject "The Necessity of Teamwork in Attaining Victory": William O'Brian and Wil- liam Flavin, members of the 1930 $raduating class of St. Andrew's Ca- thedral School; John Pruniski and Jo- seph Cheney, 'both members of the 1930 graduating class of St. Patrick's School, North Little Rock. A very approprmt~ prize will be awarded the student writing the best paper. Little Rock Catholics Do Active Mission Work Among Mexicans In May, 1926 a plan was suggest- ed to the Cathedral Catholic Club that a very worthy project would be to conduct a Sunday School at Baux- ite for the Mexican children w~ose fathers were employed in the mines and who were not receiving any re- ligious instruction. The idea was taken up with enthu- siasm by the members, and the Misses Helen Burke, Minnie and Adelaide Heibach, Ruby Miles, and Dr. Annie M. Bremeyer accompanied by the Rev. Thomas F. Walsh. Mr. Joe Hein- rich, and Mr. and Mrs. Jack Sanders made the first visit Sunday, May 26, 1926. The following Sunday Sisters Maura, Modesta. and Claudia of St. Andrew's Parochial School. accom- panied Misses Helen Burke, Minnie and Adelaide Heibach, Ruby Miles, and Dr. Annie M. Bremeyer and as- sisted in forming the Catechism classes which have been held every second and fourth Sunday since that time. The Sisters have assisted at various times and in May, 1927, took the children's choir of St. Andrew's for the May processional. Transpor- tation was furnished by meml~ers of the Cathedral Parish. Other young ladies who have helped can-y on the work are Mesdames Mary Walsh Pauli, and Francesca Zeizler Sherry These two Sundays are now being cared for by Dr. Annie M. Bremeyer and Miss Helen Burke who have serv- ed continuously and Miss Vesta Jar- rett who has helped for more than three years. Each year the children have enjoy- ed their Easter observance and their Easter egg hunt. sen, Mary Meurer, and Mr. Carl J. Meurer, Jr. Mr. F. P. Kenkel: the well khown director of Central Bu- reau of the Catholic Central Society of St. Louis, Missouri, through the solicitation of the la.e Mr. Carl Meurer, Sr., was instrumental in having the Central Verein donate catechisms, hymn books, and Bible histories in Spanish, and a number of good Spanish works of fiction. Ex- cellent use is made of these volumes, and the Mexicans enjoy them thor- ou?ghly. In March, 1930, the Sisters of Mercy agreed to help this second group in its work, and since then the Sisters accompanied by Miss Meurer have gone every other Sunday to the Mexican Mission. The Sisters are having splendid results and hope soon to have a First Holy Communion class of children. Last Sunday, October 5, 1930, Rev. Father Leopold Kinder, S. V. D., who speaks Spanish fluently, read Mass at Bauxite, and delighted the Mexicans by reading the Gospel and preaching a heartfelt sermon in their beautiful native tongue. "Will the Father come every Sunday?" was the query of the spokesman for the congregation. A~ter Mass several officials of the American Bauxite Company drove up to the unpreten- tious chapel, and Mr. L. R. Branting, superintendent of the mines, ap- proached Rev. Father Kinder and the Sisters, and thanked them heartily for the interest they are taking in the Mexicans. He offered to do anything he could in helping them. It is that these poor people may be able to enjoy the great privilege of having Mass every Sunday (such a usual thing with us favored mortals that we probably do not appreciate it as much as we should), that the play, Affairs of An Heiress" will be presented, and it is hoped that the proceeds will be sufficient to accom- plish this goal. TEXARKANA KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS COUNCIL No. 2650 Through the medium of the Guard- ian we take this opportunity of ex- teriding to the adults of St. Edward's Parish, the members of our Council, and to any and all knights who might happen to be in our city at the time, a most cordial invitation to be the guest of St. Edward's Council No. 2650, K. of C., for the celebration of Columbus Day, Oct. 12, at 7:30 p. m., in our hall. The true story of the discovery of America and the even~ leading up to it; .the motives that prompted the undertaking; the persistency and faith in an idea that characterized Columbus, and the details of the trip, taking in the light of .the geograph- ical knowledge and the conditions of those times, should be kept fresh in the minds of all true knights. Against the prevailing opinion of the learned men' of his days, through 'the beneficence of Spain's Catholic Queen, and the encouragement of an humble Priest, he fitted up a fleet of three frail vessels and set sail into the unknown.

The program for the two days opened With patriotic exercises at the flag pole on Wednesday at 2:30. Mrs. Frank Letzig, representing the woman's auxiliary of the American Legion, in behalf of the society pre- sented the school with a very beau- tiful American flag. Mrs. Miller, ~resident of the auxiliary, was also present and gave a short address. The flag was accepted for the school by the Very Rev. Msgr. James P. Moran, after which the flag was hoisted on the pole by Masters Louis Eugene Browning, Ric~hard Dennis, and Oscar Findley, pupils of the school. The children then rendered a program of patriotic songs under the direction of Sister M. Modesta, O. S. B., director of music at the school. The program was arranged and carried out under the direction of the American Legion Auxiliary. Immediately after these exercises, Circle Number 6, Miss Helen Robin- son, chairman, gave a very success- ful card party in the school parlors with 75 tables in play. Beautiful gifts were awarded to the winners. In the evening at 7:36 the pupils of the Cathedral School, under the direction of Sister M. Maura, 0. S. B., Superior, presented an unusually interesting program which took the form of a pageant in which the vari- ous pupils of the school portrayed in quaint costume various events in the history of the country. A pro- cession in which all of the children took part was held, and after it marched around the spacious grounds of the school, Messrs. W. B. McCon- nell. A. R. Harris, and W. S. Allen as judges selected those who were to receive prizes for the best dressed and most suitable costumes ~epre- senting the various events. The senior pupils presented a negro wed- ding made up entirely of the boys and this proved to be very amusing. Winners in the contests were Misses Mary Jewell Casey, Juanita I~ords- meier, and Masters Joseph Browning, Emmet Kearney, Joseph Oberle. and Norman Schmuck. On Thursday evening a home cook- ed supper was served in the Cathe- dral hall under the direction of Cir- cle No. 2, Mrs. C. C. Walker. chair- man, assisted by the members of her circle. This proved the magnet to attract a large number to the car- nival. The booths were arranged about the grounds in charge of Mrs. Ed O'Brien who had a very attractively decorated booth on which was dis- played dolls of all kinds. Adjoining this booth were several other booths arranged under the direction of Sis- ter M. Maura, O. S. B. The fish pond in the booth took the form of an old country well and attracted a great deal of attention: Circle No. 1, Mrs. Brodie, chairman, assisted by the members of her circle, had some very beautiful and attractive fancy articles on exhibition and for sale. of the arrangements was composed Christians and Patriots. of Mrs. M.-J.

FRENCH PRESENT FRA- TERNAL GREETING AT PEACE MEETING HELD BY GERMAN CATHOLICS Delegates From Many Nations at Paderborn Congress Hear Dec- laration Stressing Bend Between "Brothers in Shadow of the Cross" and Pope's Zeal to Effect "Dis- armament of Hatred"---"Educatlon in Favor 6f Peace" Theme of Gathering. By Rev. Dr. Wilhelm Baron yon Capitaine, (Cologne Correspendent, N. C. W. C. News Service.) Cologne, Sept. 22.--The German Catholic League for Peace has just held its annual congress at Pader- born of which its president, Dr. Gunst, is Lord Mayor. Catholic peace organizations of France, Bel- gium, Holland, Poland, Czechoslo- vakia and the United States were represented, the latter by the Rev. Dr. Francis J. Ha~is, president of the Catholic AssociatiOn for Internation- al Peace. The French delegation in- cluding Commandant Lefebvre-Dibon, president of the League vf French Catholics fo~ Internati:onal Justice and Peace, and official representa- tives of the Archbishops of Paris and Arras, presented at the Congress one of its most important declarations, considered in the light of the popular conception of Franco-German antip- athy. Sons of One Father. "We bring fraternal greetings from our association," the document read. "Sons of a common Father, German Catholics and Frencl~ Cath- olics, we are brothers indeed in the Holy Church, brothers in the shadow df the Cross, brothers in sin and, like- wise, brothers in the Redemption, servitors of Him who came upon earth to give His Peace, the entire Peace, the whole Peace, in which we can communicate. Has not the Church and its Chief forever striven to attain such peace? "On the eve of the recent fratri- cidal war was it not again the Sov- ereign Pontiff who, above the tur- moil of arms already seized, praised peace? And we know with what un- flinching zeal our common Father, Pius XI, gloriously reigning, reminds us untiringly of its commands. He asks us to forget past enmi- sided at the formal opening of the congress in the city hall. In his wel- coming address, Archbishop Klein ex- plained that the German association did not approve "extreme pacifism which is not approved by Christian, ity," nor "hypernationalism, .the heresy of our time," nor its tendency to exterior pomp, gigantic assemblies, and interminable speeches, discussions and resolutions. "The nations," he said, "must be reconciled and un.ited through peace- ful, spiritual, intellectual co-operation into a family of nations once more conscious of God." Many Residents Attend. Letters, containing the same or * similar thoughts, were received from Cardinal Bertram, Archbishop of Breslau, Msgr. Orsegnio, Papal Nun- cio in Berlin, the Bishops of Mainz, Osnabrueck, Muenster and Regens burg, and the Apostolic Administra- tvr of Schneidemuehl, Dr. K~ller, and the Archabbot of Beuron. Large numbers of both Catholic an@ non-Cat~holic residents of Paderborn. attended the open sessions of th~ congress to hear Dr. Schwering, Co]- ogne Landtag Deptlly, and the Rev. Franciscus Stratmann, O. P., of Ber- lin, discuss various aspects of edu- cation for peace. The German secular press gave considerable space to this Catholic Peace Congress, featuring it in both articles and editorials. REV. WM. SCHAEFERS, PRIEST-EDITOR, BACK FROM EUROPEAN TOUR (By N. C. W.
