In a short address the Monsignor dwelt on Columbianism and Pa- triotism, and his words were so forceful and well chosen, that im- mediately following the meal, sev- eral lapsed members applied for re-instatement. Monsignor O'Connell will be with us all this week conducting ihe Mission, but in the two short days that he has been associated with the local Council of the Knights of Columbus, he has mani- fested' himself so magnanimously hat he will not be easly forgotten.

If all of those who openly abuse this privilege in pub- lic and private were served the same punishment as Philip Nolan received, we would not have enough navy vessels to accom- modate them. Citizens who bitterly condemn our government may not mean to be disloyal; nevertheless, they are. !Governmental abuses can creep in, and theyreally do; mistakes can be made, and they are made; but to discredit everybody in high of- fice, from our President down, and to wish for and advocate a different government, is, with the present world conditions, nothing short of treason. There never has been a better government in the world than that guaranteed by our: Constitution and the Bill of Rights•' It was clearly founded with the holy intention of providing and as- ;suring for everyone in America, foreigners not excluded, the rights to life, liberty, the pursuit of hap- piness, and freedom of worship. All these God-intended natural privileges are taken away from people living under the new forms of government elsewhere• It is, therefore, an awful and shameful act to uproot the respect and love for country from the hearts of children by glib, fanci- ful but ignorant criticism of na- tional conditions. To inspire them say, "I am an American," when they hear the ones near and dear to them everlastingly griping about scmething that is wrong in this country. i Patriotism is, like religion, something more or less intangible; only noble ideals can make it a reality to each individual• Pa- triotism, like religion, demands al- most a blind conviction that it is something great arid good and es- sential for a happy existence• It demands respect, order, obedience, and a readiness to sacrifice so that what is dear to us may be pre- served. Nothing, or no one, can be dear to us, if our appreciation for certain things and persons is underminded by those to whom we look for direction. Children are more easily affected in these matters, because of their limited reasoning power, or the complete lack of it. The idea of true patriotism is predicated more on keeping God's Commandments than on the wav- ing of the flag and turning out en masse on the Fourth of July.
