Catholic Book Week was duly observed throughout tile grades by exhibitions of po.,'ters pertinent to the occasion, oral and written book reports, periods devoted to silent reading, and various plays enacted by the pupils on the sub- ject of worthwhilg literature. A "Booklapd" scene was ex- hibited in the high school library. In connection with this display, students of the English classes dramatized a skit, "The Secret Book Agents," written by Teeny Ruth May, freshman. By means of this play the pupils were con- ducted on an observation tour through Bookville, Magazinetown, Pamphlet Inn, and School Paper City, thereby making the ac- quaintance of all the library's new books and magazines. In- terviewing the inhabitants of Bookland, who conducted puzzle contests for the students, made the project both interesting and in- structive. Book Week posters also played an important part in the exhibit. American Education Week was likewise appropriately observed. Each student inquired into his own school to see if he is making good use of the splendid education which the school offers him. On Tuesday two faculty mem- bers, Sister Adrienne Marie and Sister Miriam Dorothy attended the Primary Teachers' Meeting held at Mount St. Mary's in Little Rock. The Magazine Drive sponsored by the Curtis Company, in which pupils from Grades 5-12 partici- pated, ended on November 9 with the Army Air Corps contestants (Grades 5-7-9-11) victorious. The Ninth Grade won over the en- tire group, and the Sixth Grade came out first in their division, the Navy. The money realized from this campaign will be added in the name of the students of Providence Academy to the new school fund. Ann O'Dwyer, Pat Thomas, and C. G. Spears took charge of a special stamp-and-bond sale held on Wednesday, November 10 As a result of this sale, P.A. is $109.35 nearer their "Grasshopper." Henceforth, special weekly sales will replace the monthly ones. From 5-7:30 p.m., of the same day, the Knights of Columbus en- tertained the school children with a wiener roast. Bonfires blazed at various sections on the grounds, and fun resigned supreme. Tables for serving had been erected con- veniently nearby; and after the children had been served, they became enthusiastically engaged l Fine Rosaries At Low Cost No. SS.--Imported (Czechoslovakian) rosaries, silver plated chains, oxi- dized crucifixes, pastel shades, pink, green, blue, lavender and white.

Following the wiener roast, the Social Committee gave a sodality party in the school hall, at which time twelve candidates were initiated into the sodality. Much fun was derived at the expense of the "victims," but even they admitted that the initiation was unique. The remainder of the time was spent in playing games and dancing. When the party ended, happy sodalists said that they didn't remember ever having spent a more delightful evening. The next morning, November 11, Providence Academy students witnessed the raising of Old Glory on its new flag pole, a gift of the Knights of Coloumbus, Council No. 2650. The pledge of allegiance having been made, the children returned home to enjoy a free day. Thursday evening the Eagles scored a 6-point victory over their opponent, Rodessa. This was the hardest-fought football game the Birds had played this season, and their second victory. The game with De Kalb the preceding Fri- day ended with a score of 12-7 in the Eagles' favor. On both oc- casions the pep squad attended the games and cheered the vic- tors to success. .Germany Pledges To Respect Vatican City Vatican City. 00---Osservatore Romano published the following official announcement: "To put an end to unfounded circulating, especially abroad, concerning the conduct of German troops in regard to Vatican City. His Excellency the German Am- bassador to the. Holy See, under instrUctions from his government, has declared to the Holy See it- self that Germany, as it has up to the present respected the offices and activity of the Roman Curia as also the sovereign right and integrity of the State of Vatican City, has decided to respect them in the same manner for the future. also by the Ambassador." The Roman Curia, strictly speak]ng,:is the ensemble of de- partments and ministries which assist the Sovereign Pontiff in the government of the Universal Church. The statement that the Roman Curia is respected as well as the integrity of the State of Vatican City apparently has ref- erence to the fact that the offices of some of the Curia agencies are in Rome rather than in Vatican City, and personnel attached to the agencies have residence in the Eternal City.

"The peoples of the world," the statement said, "the simple peo- ples, the fathers of families, the toilers and laborers, the peoples who have the same interests and the same ambitions which we cherish are looking to us, to this great land of freedom. We must not disappoint them. It is our historic duty to do our full duty in the Family of Nations. The causes of war must be removed, the hon- est needs of peoples must be met, their rights recognized. This must be a good peace which our vic- tory will achieve." "But," said the Bishops, "first let us make ourselves in very truth peacemakers. Let us recognize the problems in our own social life and courageously seek the solution of them." Recognition Of God's Sovereignty Above all, the Bishops empha- sized that "a first principle must be the recognition of the Sov- ereignty of God and of the moral law in our national life and in the right ordering of a new world born of the sacrifices and hard- ships of war." Thereafter, the statement coun- seled on a group of urgent social subjects. It is heartening, the Bishops said, to note "the wide agreement on the moral postulates of a just peace amongst religious leaders, otherwise divided by the deep cleavage of fundamental doctrinal differences." This agree- ment, they said, had been evi- denced in three parallel state- ments on World Peace issued by American religious groups. The root of the maladies which have brought on the catastrophe of world war Sovereignty of God and of the moral law." No nation, the Bishops declared, has under God authority to in- vade family freedom, abrogate private ownership or "impede, to the detriment of the common good, economic enterprise, co- operative undertakings for mutual welfare and organized works of charity sponsored by groups of citizens. Rights, Dignity Of Family Concerning the rights and the dignity of the family, the Bishops stated that where the State vio- lates family rights and makes light of family stability and parental re- sponsibility, no amount of wel- fare work carried on or promoted by public authority will ade- quately provide for social well- being. The Bishops voiced a grave warning against the propaganda of so-called planned parenthood, which, they said, "weakens tle physical and moral fibre of the nation." They pleaded for a re- turn to the Christian concept of marriage and said "nee-pagan views on marriage which are be- ing propagated with misguided zeal in our country can lead to moral ruin and national decad- ence."
