A card party will be held in the academy dttring the afternoon, and noon on concession booths, sponsored by the various classes, will be open in the gym. The Bingo booth will be one of the main attractions. Prizes for the booth are being solicited from merchants of Greater Little Rock, from alumnae members, and friends by members of the Junior and Senior classes. All booths will remain open d'uring the evening and drawings for the raffles will be held about ten p.m. The Society For The Propagation Of The Faith Mary's Sons and Daughters With the wireless notices report- ing the death of four missionaries at Tasimboko, Guadalcanal, inter- est is focussed upon the work of the Society of Mary, great apostles to the Oceanic islands, to which these four belonged. It is 126 years ago since this Society was founded in Lyons by Jean Claude Colin and just 106 years since it was foxTaally approved by the great Pope Gregory XVI. How- ever in point of achievement the annals of the Society of Mary are glorious with the recording of un- tiring zeal, the most ardent charity and incomparable heroism. When the great mission aposto- late of the South Seas was opened in the 19th century the Marists entered upon a wonderful era of accomplishment. One of their fiumber was appointed Vicar Apos- tolic of Oceania, hundreds of mem- bers brought the saving doctznes of Christiamty to cannibalistic i savages, while many Marists pour- ed forth their life's blood that these same savages might obtain I eternal life. What has been said of the priests, members of the Society of Mary, may also be said of the women. No leprous body was too repulsive for their ministering care, no hut was too vile for their entrance to offer Christlike char- ity. Governments accorded the accolade of greatness to their achievements as Mary's sons and daughters carry on the work of her Son. Now the palm of martyr- dom is in the hands of some more of their members. Carthage's Third City When the Phoenician merchants plied their trade across the waters of the Mediterranean they found- ed the mighty city of Carthage almost nine centuries before the i Christian era. Then, when Rome rose to the ascendency, she chose to prove the power of her great- ness by destroying the Phoenician pride, Carthage. The Emperor Augustus, however, realizing the strategic value of the city, had it rebuilt in 29 B.C. and its import- ance was further enhanced when Christianity developedthere one i of its greatest centers, tI was in Carthage, the great center of learning, that the renowned Au- gustine, Saint, Confessor and Doctor of the Church, received part of his education. It was as Bishop of Carthage that St. Cy- rian exercised primacy in the African Church. It was in the arena of Carttmge that SS. Feli- citas and Perpetua poured out their life's blood rather than adore any but the Christ to whom they were espoused. When the hordes of Mohammed poured into A.friea the grandeur of the Church of Carthage whetted their appetites for destruction. In 698 it was once more a mound of smouldering ruins, as the sons of the Prophet applied the torch and the sword to both city and in- habitants. However, with the "re- discovery" and subsequent evan- ga!ization of Africa, Carthage, phoenixlike, arose from its ashes. Today a beautiful Cathedral, dedi- cated to St. Louis of France, stands upon the ancient hill of Byrsa, and within its stately walls are or- dained the 20th century Apostles who will restore not only Carth- age, but the entire continent, to the knowledge and love of Christ. Did You know That As.early as 1785 Chinese priests, disguised as hawkers, would visit the scattered Christian commun- ities living along the Great wall. In 1829 when Rev. Matthias Hsue (Chinese Vincentian) ar- rived in Siwantze, he foflnd 300 Christians surrounding a spacious chapel, which was the fourth one erected by the inhabitants them- selves. 15,000 Masses are offered an- nually for deceased members of the Society for the Propagation of the faith. Surely this would prove a thought for November. Unions Communism Doesn't Want 'Communists want unions that on y fight even if they do so only periodically.

Foreign Minis- ter Aranha also sent a message expressing the sorrow and sym- pathy of the Brazilian people and government to' His Eminence, Luigi Cardinal Maglione, Papal Secretary of State. (By N.C.W.C. News Service) The news of the death of His Eminence, Sebastinano Cardinal Leme de Silveira Cintra, Arch- bishop of Rio de Janeiro, has been received in this country with declarations by distinguished ec- clesiastics that the Church has lost a great leader and the United States a great friend. "Cardinal Leme was a towering influence throughout South Amer- ica," said His Eminence Dennis Cardinal Dougherty, Archbishop of Philadelphia, "because of a bril- liant mind, sound judgment, up rightness of principals and holi- ness of life. In his death, South America and the United States lose a friend." "The people of Brazil have suf- fered an irreparable loss in the death of Cardinal Leme," the Most Rev. Gerald P. O'Hara, Bishop of Savannah-Atlanta, d.eclared. "Two years ago I spent several weeks names of pupils making an A- or a B average. In this division the freshman class leads with twelve students. Seniors on the merit roll are Milton Crawley, Helen Hainback, Dorris Kincannon, Anthony Lim- berg, Ann Luckinbill, Norbert Smith and Carmelita Wahl. Juniors: Margaret Ann Altmil- Ier, Earl Boles, Walter Boyle, Au- gust Delaloye, Jack Haaser and Margaret Thompson.

A great Bishop and a true patriot with a profound love for his peo- ple, he was often referred to as the father of his country. In times of crisis, Brazil invariably looked to him for guidance and safety. His influence for the peace and order of his native land was incalculable. His friendship for the people of the United States was well known, and' his death will be deeply re- gretted, even in our own country." "Not only Brazil, but all Latin America and all lovers of Latin America will mourn the loss of Cardinal Leme," asserted the Most Allsopp & Chapple Booksellers and Sationers 307-309 Main Street 4r Call t DAN DEARASAUCH For Office SuppllesPh. 9612 TO GET RID OF A BAD COLD IN A HURRY TRY S. & B.

I ,-li PSON00 6176 ! Reliable--Satisfactory g I Non-Catholics Hold One-Day 'Retreat' Cleveland. OD " Two informal talks on Catholic retreats by Muni- cipal Judge Perry A. Prey to a group of non-Catholic men, ad- herents of various churches, has resulted in a group of 60 non-Ca- tholics engang in a one-day re- treat on their own account with literature provided by the Society: of Jesus as their program and one of their own group as the leader. The announcement of this oc- currence was made in an address by Judge Prey after he had' been elected president of the Laymen's Retreat League of the Diocese of Cleveland. Declaring that it was one of the most interesting incidents in his several years' connection with the League, Judge Frey said he told the story "because it impressed me with the interest that non-Ca- tholics have in a religious program that is' most satisfactory from every viewpoint." Some months ago, Judge Frey said, as he sat at lunch with half a dozen men of varying religious dehominations, he was asked to explain the Catholic Retreat move- meat. He did so, and the result was he was asked recently to re- peat the remarks to the group of 60 men. The result of the two talks was the one-day retreat of their own with one of the number as a leader and the Retreat pro- gram of the Society of Jesus as its keynote. Rev. John F. O'Hara, C.S.C., Mili- tary Delegate. "A great Church- man and scholar, he was above all a great leader of Catholic Action The organization of Catholic Uni- versity studies under his direction gave new life to the splendid Ca- tholic movement in Brazil, and the solid structure he gave to social work will insure great fruit in years to come." Previously, the Most Rev. John Mark Gannon, Bishop of Erie, Pa. who was the last prelate from this country to visit the Cardinal, said that he was "a friend of the Unite States." This view also was held by the Most Rev. James H. Ryan, Bishop of Omaha, who called' his death ' a distinct loss to both Americas."
