Members of the Rocket squad chose the queens and maids for both teams. A Day At USO If one wants to imagine what it is like in a USO during a busy afternoon and evening, he will have to be ready to listen in his mental wanderings to a variety of noises, discords and snorings. It is not hard to visualize three pianos in operation at one time, each in a different part of the building, even if one is emminat- ing weird notes of "Boogie Woogie )' music, the other laboring under the strains of more pleasing popular music, while the third is being pouded, for a variety of musical numbers. When this is being accompanied by a "Juke ox , a darce music reproducing machine, and three radios are each broadcasting the running plays of a favorite football game, the club does take on the semblance of 'a somewhat horsy place. With all th}s, scores are oc- cupied in :the writing room, lib- rary, dark room, handicraft robin, kitchen, oblivious of ;other: ac- tivities. The staccato of the pidg- pong Samos' goes on while or a. oher floor in the lYIh's :di Room is a variety of discdclant snores where many are catching up Wi ithtr I hours of lost sleep ii r5' binty traveI. The checker and chessplayers are not the least bit interested in the scores of the outstanding foot- ball games. The Information Desk is doing a "thriving business" with those who are on their way here or Ihere on a three-day pass or with those seeking assistance in locating "housjng accommodations for their wives and babies who are due in town on the next train. Thumbing through the telephone book, the file index, and at the same time sew a button or a patch, are the things hostesses are fre- quently called upon to do on an average busy afternoon in the club. Dance time brings an end to some of the activities, and concen- trates th interests in one mass activity, but does not eliminate in- terest in special groups. Bridge players gather their clans and the Community- Singers and banjo players tune up. A discussion group forms very informally here and there and in many instances, the Saturday Night quarterback re-plays important football games in grand fashion. When it is time to close, every- one has enjoyed doing the things he wanted to do. Many letters are ready for the folks back home. Dates are made for the activities of the next day and everyone leaves feeling much better over Og ,.

Indoor Welner Roasts The first of the indoor season Weiner Roasts will be sponsored in the Club's Dining Room on Tuesday, November 27. These Wether Roasts originated in the Club in 1944 when Plc. Bob Klein, now stationed, in Japan, helped to plan outdoor parties which were rained out each time !So determined was Bob that he and the Staff originated the idea of using charcoal buckets which were very common in these parts once upon a time as roasting fire containers. The first roast went over so popularly that a picture of. it, published in the National USO Magazine brought requests from many clubs for Arkansas Char- coal. buckets The twenty-one charcoal buckets purchased by the local club were shipped to Okla- homa, Utah, Missouri, South Caro- line, and other points east and west The party on November 27, will therefore, be a renewal of a popu- lar feature of the Club's Winter program and will most likely be i repeated during each of the winter and early spring months It is a splendid activity for quiet nights :where there are not many military men in the community. The Junior Hostess Company of the month is in charge with Miss Rita Gerke, Lieutenant, in charge. Catholic Dau ters Serve '. .The, Cat.e 'Dugh.ters :of America "will / sponsor the Sunday i Hospitality Hours in the USO Club, Sunday, November 25, with Miss Louise Malarcher, Chairman.

Junior Hostesses and servicemen devoted many hours in decorating! the Club, giving it a most pleasing I Thanksgiving atmosphere. Music was furnished by Howard Wil- liams and his band and the re- freshments prepared and served by the Junior Hostesses. While the celebration was not in obser- vance of the Arkansas Thanks- giving Date, it ,,as' the one ob- served by the Military personnel and presented an appropriate op- portunity for this party. Another party will be held on November 29. Baghdad College Alumnus Open Own Catholic School New York. OOne of the first graduates of Baghdad College, Iraq, is now principal of his own flourishing Catholic school in Baghdad, accordirg to advices re- ceived by the Jesuit Missions here. His name is Abboudi Talia. After his graduation in 1937, he thought of becoming a lawyer but aban- doned the idea and with a follow Should Push ['00bo!aoPrb!e00s tion of interdependence" by management and labor' and co- operative efforts with the aid of government were suggested by the Rev. Vincent O'Connell, S.M., of Notre Dame Seminary here at a one-day meeting of the Southern Region, Catholic Press Associa- tion of the United States. It is the duty of the Catholic press, Father O'Connell said, to push a solution of the manage- ment-labor problem "so that we may not be guilty of a sin of omis- sion" such as has occurred in other countries in economic matters. In the first meeting of the Southern Region since 1941, John W. MacCandless, business manager of Catholic Action of the South, was elected chairman of the Southern Region. Other officers elected are Msgr. Thomas J. Prendergast, managing editor of The Guardiau, Little Rock, vice- chairman; the Rev. Alexander Wangler, of The Alamo Register, San Antonio, secretary, and Hugh Kinchley, of The Bulletin, Au- gusta, treasurer. There are 17 member papers in the Southern Region, which is composed of Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Gorgia, Kentucky, Louis- iana, Oklahoma, Tennessee and i Texas. Representatives from all the states except Florida and Kentucky, attended. It was de- cided to rotate meeting places, but no time or place was set for the next meeting. After a review of the current management-labor situation, Fa- ther O'Connell, who is chairman of the labor-industry department of the Catholic Committe of the South and of the Committee for Social Action of this Archdiocese, asked whether "an economic Pearl Harbor" will be required, to "blast us into realization of the need for action."

Japanese Money Goes-To Heads Of Filipinos St. Colun, banS; ' Nelr.--Jap- anese money, circulated in the Philippines during the period of occupation, has finally gone to the heads of the:Filipinos, ac- cording to Father Martin Forde, St. Columban priest, who was at Lingayen when the Ameri- cans landed there. Thousands of dollars in peso notes of all denominations, made worthless by the Ameri- can invasion, have been fash- ioned into fancy pieces of head gear by the ingenious Filipinos. One of these snappy new hats sells mr two pesas (one U.S. Dollar). Pope Imparts Blessing To NCCS Club Attaches Alexandria, Va. (D--His Holi- ness Pope Pius XII has imparted his special Aposfolic Benediction to all those associated with the work of the National Catholic Communit Service Club here, and to the servicemen and women who avail themselves of its facilities. The club will observe its second birthday on December 13. The Papal blessing was contained in a message from His Excellency Archbishop Amhto Giovanni Cicognani, Apostolic Delegate to the U.S., to Francis A.

(DAt a meeting of 22 federations of farm women of Quebec, held here. it was report- ed that there are 900 circles of farmers' wives and farm women, with a total membership of 50,000, in this province, all grouped under the Catholic Union of Farm Wo- men. Holy Redeemer Church SEMINARY (Continued from page 3) which the referee was honest eough to join up with the team he was favoring. An excellent job was done during this game by Jerry Logsdon ahd Jim Mc- Sweeney who acted as line men. The Banshees have been pushed down into the cellar of the league despite some fancy playing. The Gargoyles handed them a defeat o 25-7. Three of the touch downs made by the Gargoyles were on passes thrown by Cooney and I Busby, Sheerin and Whalen were ]on the receiving end. Bucldey [intercepted one down on the l twenty yard line and took it the twenty yards for the fourth touch- down.

Busy Work Days Wednesday and Fridays are i"work days" at the seminary. On these two days from 3:45 until 5 o'clock the seminarians are en- gaged in manual labor around the seminary grounds. The most in- dustrious group, perhaps, are the sacristans. Their work like "mother's work" is never done. The activity of the sacristans ex- tends throughout the week. They prepare the altars, vestments and sacred vessels for all the services On work days, however, their Dedicated to St. Hildegarde, Patroness Of hospitals, the municipal hospital at Clarksville is operated'by the Benedictine Sisters whose motherhouse is at Ft. Smith. St. Hildegard's Hospital is a member of the Catholic Hospital Association, American Hospital Association and Arkansas Hospital Association: The hospital was dedicated by the Most Rev."Bishop on August 21, 1938. Since that time, the capacity has been increased by the purchase of a home for the nursing nuKs and use of their former quarters for hospital beds. duties are multiple. The altars, after carefifl cleaning, are covered with new linens. The floors are thoroughly washed and polished and it is no rare sight to see any number of seminarians with mops i in hand cleaning the aisles as one passes the chapel on work days. The sacristans in Morris Hall are: J. R. Whalen, J. Doyle, J. W. Kordsmeier, G. Cooney and V. Erb. In Fitzgerald Hall they are: C. Kordsmeier and M. Boyle, They are assisted by the other seminarians who each take turns helping to prepare the vestments for Mass. The Librarians remain quite ac- tive during the week but have double duties on work day-< Mes- sers. O'Rourke, Mitchell, Burdsall, Colavechio, Phelan, and Kettler directed by Rev. Mr. Gonda, are putting a great deal of effort into the classification of various books and other publications in the semi- nary library. Each week brings with it a greater knowledge of Library Science for the Librarians, Messrs. R. Scott, J. Boyle and R. Foster are contributing their efforts toward extensive renova- tion of the landscape about the buildings. The beautiful shrub- bery around the buildings is con- stantly cared for by these semi- narians. The removal of several trees and the transplanting :of some of the shrubs around M0n'is Hall has helped in bringing out the proper architectual appearance of the building. Work on a new cement tennis court has keep most of the semi- narians rather busy on recerg work days and as soon as the wire. fencing around the cou 4 erected the project will be. corn-' plete. Mr. A.

Father Sheehan's talk, entitled "Conver- sion, a process of being grafted on the Vine", enlarged on the basic subject of "Share the Faith", a movement sponsored by the Con- vext League of the Catholic Daughters of America. Father Sheehan said that we should show by personal example the effect our Faith has on our individual lives and thus cause those outside the Faith to feel that we perhaps have something de- sirable, and that they would also like to share with us. Being a member of Christ's Mystical Body, means, he remark- ,ed, that we are really the mere- !hers f that Body. The members gain life from the body, so Christ gieslife to the souls of men. As fUrther illustration, he compared hi.t to the vine, and the mem- r .b the branches, and the ac- Ceptance of converts as the graft- ing: of branches on the Vine. Father Sheehan spoke* 6f. the Liturgical Movement and the )articipation of the congrqation in the Mass, which he said iS a social worship, findqf so la'eticed might eliminate Some of 'the 'ira tlividualism which has crept into the minds of Catholics and caused them to lose the idea of all being God% chiren and that all shbuld ain4n the Holy Sacrifice of the Wrass, asdid the earl, Christians. nts!are engaged in reconstruct- 'ing other furniture in the recrea- 'tion room. .
