Approximately fifty mem- bers attended the meeting. In the absence of Grand Knight Hel- bran who had a slight operation Monday, the meeting was presid- ed over by Deputy Grand Knight Krebs. The Council Committee passed a resolution canceling the state and council per capita tax on members serving in the Armed Forces until they are released from service. The speaker of the evening was Lt. Colonel B. T. Keen. Colonel Keen is a native of Ohio and was practicing medicine in Perryville, Missouri, when called out of the U. S. Army Reserve wherein he l held a commission as Major. He was given charge of the medical division of the local induction sta- tion. Colonel Keen took the members of the Council through an imaginary trip to the induction station. For fifteen minutes he described the trail that the selectee must follow. He explained num- erous causes of rejection and gave the members some sound advice regarding their immediate fam- ily should they happen to be chos- en to serve in the Armed Forces. Colonel Keen then allowed the members to question him regard- ing the induction station and for forty-five minutes he answered all types of questions except those, of course, that were mili- tary secrets. From all indications of the questions a lot of doubts were settled in the minds of men regarding this particular phase of the United States Army. Colonel Keen has been a Knight of Col- umbus for twenty years and at- tends the St. Andrew's Church. Grand Knight Helbron has an- tion in your council? It worked and. produced results in every council in which it was seriously tried, and we feel that there is no council so lacking in mental- ity or interest as a whole, that could not find a sufficient num- ber of really interested brothers to take over the task of organizing and .stimulating five active com- mittees, each committed to a specific work. No member is either too young or too old to lend his personal efforts towards the perfection of such a program, if intelligently'directed, and is will- ing to work. Willtngnes to work along co- operative lines, is the direct re- sult of loyalty, and loyalty must necessarily come from knowledge. You must know your Order; its past splendid record, its prese status, and its future needs and possibilities. If this knowledge doesn't inspire active loyalty, in- terest might be aroused by stress- ing and superiority of Knights of Columbus insurance; cheap, safe and sound; qualities rare in these times of ceiling prices, war, and news commentators. nounced the following committee in charge of tim dinner which a group of Knights sponsor each year. This years' Committee is: Leo. J. Krebs, chairman, Rev. Fa- ther Ed Malay, Leo J. Byrne, John L. Sullivan, and John Hel- bran. Grand Knight Helbron ad- vises us at this writing that an excellent speaker has been select- ed as well as toastmaster. For this occasion :in so much as the theme of eve'rything is military two high ranking officers of the U. S. Army have accepted the honor to act as toastmaster and speaker respectively at the gath- ering of friends of St. Joseph's Orphanage. Officers of the coun- ty, tate and city will be invited as ell as many prominent busi- ness men. Grand Knight, John R. Helbron, 412 Fountain Street, is confined to his home this week, due to a minor operation on his left knee. He is in good spirits and able to hobble around.

The administrative machinery by which international efforts Cab be focussed upon common problemsthe rehabilitation of stricken nations, the averting of war and the promotion of world-wide se- curity-is taking shape and the collaboration of many countries in setting up a sort of world federation to attain these objectives is ap- parently under way.

The Atlantic City conference of the Relief Administration is di- rected to the practical problem of rehabilitating nations which have been the victims of Nazi aggres- sion, but its implications go be- yond that.

Ah)isiw; J. Muench, Bishop of Fargo, that our membership may be able to promote intelligently ,nd zealously the fundamental principles of Peace, as enunciated by our Holy Father Pius XII. Fundamentally an enduring Peace presupposes thc will to Peace, and such will must be cultivated and fm'tificd, as must also the knowl- edge of the need and means of re- storing society to health after the ravages of war. Our societies and members should seriously apply themselves to the study and distribution of the "Declaration of Peace and Reconstruction."

The Declaration is a fully de- veloped exposition of the prin- ciples, methods, and measures that must be adopted if the world is to enjoy enduring peace and the security of nations as assured by justice and charity. Every sentence of the notable document is founded in some pronounce- ment of an Encylical or address of one of the distinguished Popes of the past 50 years.
