PAGE EIGHT Sodalists To Prove Wrong Charge Youth Is Defeatist Texarkana.--"I just read an article, "Are You a Defeatist," in the Queen's Work, and it made rne angry. The writer accuses youth of being ashamed of his re- ligion, of not defending our faith in short of being defeated. It made me so angry that I resolved to ask you to help me prove to this man that he's all wrong about us." These were the opening words of Charley Conway's talk given at this week's Sodality meeting. "I "QUI VIVE?" (Continued from page 1) the activities reported from these sources were the  fruits of Chris- tianity. Why should these pagan editors and producers be allowed to malign this country. Or do they? Is it not rther that the practice of vice has become so habitual in this nation that we are inured to it. How else can we account for the fact that many who considdr themselves good Catholics can go to  grossly immoral pic- ture and then say, "I saw nothing wrong with it," How else can we account for the fact that children who have spent twelve years in Catholic schools can go out and defy the authority of the Church. i The teachers in our Catholic l schools do their work well, but they are handicapped. The im- moral pictures, salacious maga- zines, and malicious comics exert a powerful influence upon the lives of people young and old. This devastating influence must be curbed. It is a grave danger to our faith. know," he continued, "that we are hot the type of individuals that we're accused of being, and I know that you, too, are convinced that youth is not a defeatist. The thing to do is to prove to this priest that he is mistaken about us." But how were we to do this? Before we could show the writer that we are right, we had first to I prove to ourselves that we are liv- ing our religion in the ideal way. This week will be Love-Your- Neighbor Week for the sodalists of Providencd Academy. All participants in the activity are to refrain from being catty or oth'er- wise unkind toward their class- mates. At the conclusion of his speech, Charley called for a discussion. When the arguments were finished, the sodalists wishing to lake part in Love-Your-Neighbor Week were asked to raise their hands. The response was 100% . The re- sults will be discussed at next week's assembly. Catherine Ann O'Dwyer and Mary Ellen Bush read fine papers on the "Place of Mary among Sodalists," and Tommy O'Dwyer spoke on the Feast of Christ the King. Before the adjournment of the meeting, it was decided to send the money ($10) raised by the Eu- charistic Committee to the Scapu- lar Militia to purchase scapulars for the soldiers.

(iC) -- Personal lute- "That love is stronger than hate, Legion of Decel For The Family Whenever an announcement is made tlmt a civilian has received a commission in service there are likely to be murmurings among the people. Those who are un- familiar with facts have a notion that favoritism has been shown. This does not follow. The latest announcement from the Secretary of War, Stimson, shows that only 18,967 civilians, without previous military tra.ining have been com- missioned. More than half of this number are doctors and a large percentage of the others are chap- lains or others whose services are Just as essential in the army as they were in civilian life. It is the wish of the authorities to get the best officers possible. Most ef the men, who are commissioned from civilian life, have special talents and training that have car- ried them to positions of eminence In their respective communities. The nation has need of such men lh the service. They must be giv- en positions of authority. They must be commissioned officers. As a matter of fact the quality that g makes leadership is enhanced by training and education. By actual count, it has been determined that eighty per cent of the officers in the service are college graduates. This is not to say that there are not many, who have the talent to lead, teach an direct, who never attended college, but the fact is that such natural talent is greatly helped by formal education. Whenever such men have been found in the ranks, they have been sent to school and have been trained to use their ability to the best advantage. In normal times, it often llappens that a, college education is wasted upon some who even acquire degrees. Other deserving persons are deprived of the opportunity to receive a college training. At present the govern- ment is trying to remedy matters by giving every one who has tal- ents a chance to use them. The present crisis in the world calls for all the skill that we, as a na- tion, possess, in order that ulti- mate victory may be ours.

AUSTRALIAN (Continued from page 1) ing of so many parents themselves was neglected. How can you ex- pect any other condition in a country that has now for 60 years deified secularism in education, that has consistently put the ma- terial before the spiritual, and that has worked on the principle that character moulding, which should be the most important part of the child's training, can be attained without a knowledge of God and His Commandments." "Society can expect from its youth only what it has given them an opportunity of acquiring, and no society or no nation has a right to expect from its men and women virtues the value of which they were never taught," the Arch- bishop asserted. "Yet we still con- tinue to work from the wrong end. We condemn to prison men who never had the chance of learning to be moral, who were dragged up without  knowledge of God and I His Commandments, and who probably, if they had had the proper environment, would have l been a credit to their country." Watchful Elders "Watchful Elders, by the Rev. Kilian J. Hennrich, O.M. Capt., M. A. published by the Bruce Pub- lishing Co., instructs parents how to give the necessary sex informa- tion to children. The pamphlet contains further material that may be used in early and late adolescence, and deals also with particularly difficult cases." Train- ing in Chastity (N.C.W.C. Wash- ington, D. C.) Drily and "an abiding faith in the things of the spirit" are two basic conditions for the casting out of fear in dangerous times such as the present, the Ray. John C. Smyth, C.S.P., Lecturer in Sacred Eloquence at the Catholic Univer- sity of America, declared Sunday night in the "Catholic Hour." Giving the last in his current series of addresses over the "Ca- tholic Hour," Father Smyth said "there is real need for us to learn, even in the painful school of war, that we live in a dangerous world and we can be grateful for the les- son." "Danger," he added, "can be one of the great stimulants of life and when it is courageously used it can bring forth the finest experiences a man can ever know." He said "for our country's sake and for our own sake we want to meet with courage and daring every hard demand' made upon us in this critical time," but, he ad- ded, "we can do this 0nly if we have the right stuff in us." Must Build Character '"We cannot improvise char- acter," he went on, "we have to build it," asserting that integrity and faith in the spirit "are re- quisite for a man if he is to cast out fear as he lives through these troubled days." Recalling the Saviour's adhonition to "Fear not," Father Smyth said Our Lord "touches the very heart of the mat- ter when He links fear with sin, for it is certain that a large part of our fears arise out of our sins." "There can be no question about i," he added, "if we want to meet the challenge of a dangerous world without fear, we have to be done with those misgivings that follow upon wrongdoing. If we want to meet the dawn of each new day, fearless of anything that the day may do to us, be assured, one thing is necessary--a glean, upright life. If we have that, then in God's name let us keep it and be grate- ful for it. If we have lost it, then in God's name let us try to win i, back, for an evil life is peopled with fear." Father Smyth said also "if we are to cast out fears that a $,anger- ous world can incite in us, we must have at our command spiritual resources that can enlighten us and inspire us in our adversities."

In a word, we need a liv- ing faith in Jesus Christ." BI Time for Sensuality Declaring that "there are many who think this is a difficult time in which to hold fast to the teach- ing of Jesus Christ," Father Smyth reminded that this "is an evil time for anything except the principles of Christ." "It's a bad time for cynicism and sensuality, and the loss of personal integrity," he said. "This is a time above all others when we hear with fresh meaning and authority the words of St. Peter: 'There is no other name under heaven given to men, whereby we must be saved.'
