"Our Lady Of The Ozarks Mission" --Guardian Photo Transformed from a service station to an attractive little chapel and living quarters for the attending priest, is this new mission in the Ozarks. At Mount Gaylor near Win- slow it is located on the highest and most scenic point of the Fort Smith-Fayetteville high- way. The work, which has attracted the assistance of many friends far and near, has been the results of the zeal and interest of Miss Clara Muxen, who lives with her mother and brother. November Mission Intention For Promotion of Native Art On Missions To Interpret The Catholic Religion The universal or catholic char- acter of the Church has been one of Her outstanding marks during the past twenty centuries. The humble Twelve who constituted the nucleus of Her hierarchy was soon augmented by newcomers, raised to the priesthood in every land where Catholicity was estab- lished. Within our own times there has been a renewed interest in this universal characteristic, since the development of the Pon- tifical Society of St. Peter the Apostle for Native Clergy stresses the need" ior the continued forma- tion of a priesthood indigenous to E . -- . . mission lands. conolTllcal tOOl But it was not 0nly in the train- ing of a native priesthood and sis- terhood that Holy Mother the Church devoted Herself. Every detail which would lead to the I,tcl-'mrqv spiritual and cultural development IIII/.AIN of Her sons and daughters in every nation became of highest import. Thus when the glories of Grecian | A | TITIIII'V and Roman power were destined to 1 ./.ll,Jpl ! oblivion Catholicity became their guardian and protector, even as DRY CLEANING She proved the Patroness of the arts in the newly Christianized centers o Europe. From the pens and brushes of Her monks have F A Y E T T E V 1 L L E come the recordings of man's strength and weakness during the so-called "dark ages", while the successors of the first Peter have been certain of the creation and ___ development of Christian art by _ interest and' generosity.

A Representative Element It was not surprising therefore that the Sacred Congregation of Propaganda Fide would make the following statement on the subject which is recommended to the pray- ers of the faithful during the month of November. "The question of art is an ac- cessory question and yet it has an I immense importance as a repre- sentative element of an idea that is not accidental but universal. It is necessary in fact that the Ca- tholic Church should appear in an attractive form and not as anti- Chinese, and this especially in view of the pagans who are to be converted. Furthermore, as it would be strange and ridiculous for the Chinese to pretend to impose their traditional architecture and painting upon Europe, so it would be no less strange and out of place to introduce into China the forms, however excellent they may be, of western or classic art. These forms would naturally stamp the Catholic Church with a foreign I aspect which cannot be agreeable I to those who have formed their I mentality and their taste in east-I ern lands." I A s Archbishop Constantini, I President of the Superior CounCil [ of The Society for the Propagation of the Faith in Rome remarks "This document of Propaganda settled the question of the prin- ciples of missionary art. And the same holds good for India and ,Tapan and in general for all coun- tries of ancient civilization which have an art of their own. Father H. Heras, S. 5. has studied the question of art in India and advo- cates the adoption of a native Christian art. In the Dutch col- onies a Dutch Catholic has re- solved the question with concrete examples in several noble under- takings. He had the good fortune to discover an excellent native sculptor: Iko. In Japan, too, by means of an inspired painter, Seikyo Okayama, who became a convert to the Catholic Church, great steps have been made toward an adaptation of Christian art to the tastes and genius of the peo- plePhe" Madonnas of the World While these statements were made prior to the outbreak of SAVE AS YOU , SPEND OGLESBY'S DRUG STORE Prescription Druggist Ph. 5291 SPRINGDALE Brogdon & Hazel Fayetteville, Arkansas CRESCENT DRUG STORE "Your Walgreen Agency Drug" Mr. and Mrs. J.
