Kights of Columbus State Council By J. P. Reynolds We have a little over a month left in this year of 1943. Let's put forth our best efforts to make the required .40 per cent of our assigned membership increase before the year dies. That it is r/bt imposmble is evidenced by the fact that some of the councils of this jurisdiction have already made it. Council 812 with a quota of 24 for the entire fiscal year, has already taken in 39 members. Council 2780, with a quota of 6, has already taken in their full quota. Coun- cil 996 with a quota of 11 has taken i 5, which is more than 45 percent THIRD DEGREE COUNCILS NEWS ACTIVITIES IN THE STATE OF ARKANSAS Council 812 ' ' Grand Knight, .Iohn R. Helbron, 412 Fountain Street, has resumed his duties as Manager and Train- ing Supervisor, of Safeway Store, 14th and Main, after a recent operation on his left knee. Ap- parently he is now on his way to a speedy full recovery. All Brother Knights will be pleased to hear this good news. Mr. Thee J. Arnold, 109 Sylvan Hills, Park Hill, North Little Rock, State President, Arkansas State Council, Catholic Knights of America, and Chairman of Little Rock Council No. 812, Catholic Activities Committee, is recover- ing from a recent hard attack of lumbago. He is still under care of his physician, but seems to be ion his way to a rapid relief from the dreadful pains of this severe ailment. All Brother Knights I of their quota. Cotmcil 1770 with a quota of 7 has taken in 2. Coun- cil 1153 has a quota of 13, Council 1702 has a quota of 6, Council 1713 has a quota of 4, Council 2443 has a quota of 7, Council 2650 has a quota of 7, Council 2857 has a quota of 4. It is just probable that some o these councils listed have increased their intake since these figures were issued. What we should strive for during the few remaining days of this year is to obtain for our reSpec- tive council an intake equal to 40 pet" cent of our assigned quota; for instance, if our quota is 5, we are asked to take in at least 2 members before Dec. 31, which may consist of new members, ex- members returning to the fold, or a combination of both. This one qualification required to put our council on the ttonor Roll, namely a 10 per cent gross :intakein membership for the Fiscal Year, ending June 30th., is within reach of every council in this jurisdiction, if every member makes some effort to contact the 'eligible Catholics in his commun- ity. Come on brothers let's show that the "Slow. Train Through Arkansas Days" are long past and everybody is interested and alet wish you good health again.
