(Continued from page 1) tion devoutly to Toe wished," that great stress has been placed upon what is called vocational guidance. A great deal is being thought l about this subject now in connec- tion with service men and partic- ularly with reference to post war planning. In the armed service, there has been a studied effort to put men in the line of work for which they are fitted, the hope being that they will be better satisfied to work under such con- ditions. There is a movement on foot, even now, to direct the choice of occupation of the men in ser- vice, when they are ready to re- turn to civilian life. It is the opinion of many that our high schools and colleges might be used as reception centers, where ex- perienced vocational guides could act in cooperation with the United States Employment SerVice and thus direct men and women along the lines of activity for which they are best suited. It sounds well, but there is an element of per- visity in human nature which pre- vents the best laid plans of mice and men from working out in the real order. A good many cen- turies ago, the Latin poet, Horace, wrote a satire on this very sub-' ject, which he addressed to his patron, Maecenas. He asked why it is that no man is satisfied with his own lot. The merchant en- vies thesailor and the farmer and lawyer would like to exchange oc- cupations. However if fate gave each one the opportunity to change, he would renege. It of- ten happens that people are hap- piest doing what they are the least qualified to do.

I II catcher often wants to be a pitch- er and a great lineman in football wants to be a broken field run- ner. The fact is that happiness in this world is elusive. Very often a person must subordinate his happiness to the good of others. The vagaries of life often demand that a person use his ability i]3 ways which do not please him, but which are best for all others concerned. Vocational guidance may be helpful if it is properly used, but it is a long way from being a panacea for the ills of the individual or society. Frank Leahy, the Notre Dame coach, is described by his as- sociates as a perfectionist. His critics call him other things. At present he is acclaimed by people m general as the great mourner, but he is going to have to move over, because a greater than he has been found. According to Representative Outland of Cali- fornia, Major General George V. Strong, chief of the Army intel- ligence division, should be en- titled to the most prominent place on the mourner's bench. If the General were engaged in football, his position would be that of a scout. The scout is supposed to know both the strength and the weakness as well as the plays of the opponents. If the Congress- man quoted the General correctly, the strength of the Nazi is greater now than It was in 1939. Ger.- many has approximately three times as many combat divisions in the field as it had at the beginning of the war. These divisions are well trained and superbly equip- ped. The Luftwaffe is larger and better now than it was in 1939. It sounds like Frank Leahy de- scribing the strength of Wisconsin or Temple. Japan is also describ- ed as very potent. In this coun- try, we are scraping the barrel for men, while Japan has two mil- lion men of military age, who have not yet been called to the colors. And besides, sbe has near- ly as many more iu the 17-20 age range. In the air Japan is strong and getting stronger. Her planes and pilots are improving daily. All in all, if the General's as- count is correct our troops shouldn't even show up for the conflict. We have no more chance of beating these foes than Notre Dame has of beating Pittsburgh CATHOLIC GIRL FLIERS-JOIN THE WASP. Brig. Gen.

H; Wynhoven Editor-in-Chief Catholic Action of the South I'M SORRY According to Disraeli, "Apologies only account for the evil which they cannot alter." And O. W. Holmes gives it as his opinion: "Apology is only egotism wrong side out .... Nine times out 10, the first thing a man's companion knows of his shortcomings is from his apology." We cannot agree with either evaluation of the apology. An apology is an acknowledgement intended as a repara- tion for some improper or injurious or discourteous remark or act. It also may be an explanation of a word or deed which was misinterpreted, and from which offense was taken where none was intended. It is an expression of regret which in- volves a certain amount of humiliation. Untold unhappiness is created, wrong feelings are allowed One subscriber to Our Sunday Visitor, hailing from Pittsburgh, was very emphatic that we were not fair to the gentler sex by be- rating them in "Shorts-Slacks Girls." The dear one contends, "Granted that the modern female bathing suit does reveal too much of the wearer, can you tell me that it is more immodest than the '),, ,modern male trunks. Then she proceeds to give a graphic descrip- tion of what an unholy show men make of themselves on the bath- ing beaches. Of course, she gives her impression from a woman's viewpoint. She is eminently cor- rect, and we are sorry for not i having given the male stalwarts a combing. Another one wishes to know what is wrong with 'Nagging Wives," when their respective husbands drive them to drink, and they do not give the homekeeping spouse enough of an allowance to procure a soporific potion. to develop, hate even can be en- gendered, because the proud man, who knows in his heart he is guilty of a hurt done, cannot bend his stiff neck and utter the simple words, 'Tm sorry." Much evil may, indeed, be al- tered, and intentional or unin- tentional wrong may be rghted by the simply expressed admission that something' was not properly understood, or that quick temper made one inconsiderate or forget- ful. An apology, instead of be- traying hidden shortcomings, frankly concedes that a wrong.has been done; it nobly does violence to an egotistical feeling or super- iority and squelches the false at- titude of "The king is never mis- taken." There are some people who al- ways are ready to apologize and beg pardon; but that is as far as they go. Making amends, or doing something whereby their sincere regret is demonstrated, never en- ters their mind. Their disposi- tion is nothing but a haughty hy- pocrisy; their apologies are only a cruel game of sadistic refinement. : No one is perfect; we all have our failings and foibles. People who have to live and work with one another, day in and day out, are bound to forget themselves at times, and to say or do things or to reveal a state of mind that will hurt tbe- feelings of others. Neither boss, superior nor parent is be- yond this mortal affliction, unless he is a seasoned saint. Even "Homer takes a nod occasionally;" anyone is liable to slip up and forget himself. There isn't so much wrong with this, if the situa- tion be understood. But, wha is grievously damaging is the idea, which higher-ups seem to enter- tain, that they must never humble themselves so far as to own up to happiness and harmony in their homes with greater solidity, if at times they can bring themselves to acknowledge that they were wrong. Tyrannical insistence that authori W must be maintained through the idea that the heads of any human organization always are right, and the inferiors must, therefore, be made to swallow any injustice, unkind words or per- emptory orders, can never bring about a kindly understanding and mutual appreciation. What dire consequences can fol- low in the wake of a stiff-necked refusal to bow one's head in apology, was historically demon- strated in 1915. On May 17, the large British transatlantic liner, :he Lusitania, was torpedoed by a German submarine off the coast of Ireland. Eleven hundred and fifty lives were lost, among them many women and children. One hundred and fourteen were Amer- ican citizens. President Wilson protested to Germany against this method of submarine warfare, where the lives of passengers could not be safeguarded, as re- quired by international law. Su- perficially, the Kaiser's regime pledged correction. But, in the very beginning of 1917, it was dis- covered, by the interception of a letter from the German foreign secretary to the Reicll's minister in Mexico, that the Germans, in- stead of making amends for their wanton violation of agreements, were secretly scheming to ally Mexico with them in war against the United States. To forestall this hypocritical treachery, Con- gress declared war on Germany on April 6, 1917. And today's global war may well be consider- ed a direct result of Germany's failure to properly apologize for "My husband spends money for two packages of cigarettes and 10 bottles of beer a day, and I may get 20 cokes and two bottles of )eer a year, at times when he in- vites friends to the house and can't help offering me a drink." or Carnegie Tech.

Yes, Frank Leahy could use General Strong for a scout. It is too bad the war is occupying his attention. There is a shortage of lugubrious scouts to prime the disconsolate coaches. ,, : Long Island Priest, North American College Alumnus, Dies New York.
