Wynhoven Editor-in-Chief Catholic Action of the South THE GREAT AFTER-WAR BENEFIT A tired buck private, after a busy day, rested himself on a rustic bench under an umbrella tree near the officers' quarters. He was leisurely peeling an orange, and throwing the skin over his shoulder on the lawn behind him. A lieu- tenant, happening along, ordered him to pick up the peeling and get a shovel. He then marched the soldier back of the reservation and told him to dig a trench 12 x 6, four feet deep, xherein to bury the mess. If he could not finish the job before dark, he would have to continue it the next day during his off time. There are many people who, when they hear this story, will protest that this sort of discipline is silly, and is pushing things too far. But, is it? It is quite clear that, in itself, the pun- ishment meted out to the thought- less soldier is entirely out of pro- portion to the offense. However, the principle back of it i most serious and of great importance. Battles may be lost, and lives un- necessarily sacrificed, if apparent- ly insignificant orders are not faithfully obeyed or rules and reg- ulations which seem foolish and unnecessary are wilfully neg- lected. Cases are on record of soldiers being court-martialed on the bat- tlefield and shot for infractions of military orders that, on their face, looked to be inconsequential. If the men guilty of these acts of dis- obedience had not been promptly and drastically punished, the re- sults easily might have been con- fusion, loss of life and eventual defeat. A regiment can be composed of well-drilled soldiers, crack marks- men and foal'less fighters, and still may not be worth as much as a squadron made up of bungling be- ginners, if the finely trained out- fit is not disposed to carry out commandments to the letter--in other words, if it lacks discipline. Hence, it is of utmost necessity that recruits De trained to strictest obedience. The only way by which this can be achieved is the constant vigilance and insistence of the officers in charge that all rules in camp are minutely and scrupulously adhered to, and that punishment for neglect or care- lessness be such that it will im- press and cure the offender. Many a mother is worried about what will happen to her Jirffmie in the rough military service. To weaklings and to those boys who have not been brought up in the fear of God, many disastrous things can happen. Wrong influ- ences, dangerous concepts of the moral code, and harmful associa- tions are likely to play havoc with such misfits. However, there is one great benefit which all our soldiers and sailors will gain, and that is, a willingness to yield to discipline, and the practice of obedience as something natural and instinctive. The lack of respect for authority on the part of our youth today is a graver menace to the welfare stability and happiness of this country than any threats from foreign enemies. Strict adherence to established order is the first and principal foundation on which in- dividual well-being must rest.

The modern tendency to do as one pleases, irrespective of consequences, cannot but create havoc. Any thinking person will come to this conclusion when he observes the results of a disorderly home, where parents obey their children, and the children obey only themselves. Four brothers had joined the armed services with their father's consent. The fifth signed up with- out consulting his parents. The fa- ther refused to endorse the appli- cation. When he was pressed by the recruiting officer to change his attitude, he flatly refused, giv- ing this explanation:: "I gladly gave my four boys to my country; I would have felt satisfied to let this one go; but what good can he do in the defense of our land when he has not enough decency recognize authcrity imposed God?" Buffalo. (E)--In a determined effort to rid the newsstands in this city of all salacious, indecent and objectionable reading ma- terial, an organization known as the Permanent Committee on [Public Decency has been estab- I lished among the three major faiths and is operating effective- ly. The organization had its in- ception a year and a half ago at a laymen's retreat banquet when the Most Roy. John A. Duffy, Bishop of Buffalo, called upon the police authorities to clean up the newsstands. He pointed out that the young of the city had no dif- Parochial Student, Bond Champion, Gets Promised Jeep Ride Verona, N. J. (E)Ten-year-old Carl J. Buehler, Jr., has earned for himself the top rank in bond and stamp sales at Our Lady of the Lake School. One week-end found Carl hard at work beginning his regular week-end sale of stamps and bonds. With his family, he at- tended a party for a sailor friend at a local inn. Recognizing the fact that an unusual opportunity would be presented to him to in- crease his sales, he wrote and re- hearsed a speech. George H. Serbe, the inn prop- rietor, offered to match any bond purchases made by the gathering. When Carl had concluded his speech he found that he had sold over $1,200 in stamps and bonds. Carl's service didn't end there, however, for on the following day he delivered the bonds himself to all purchasers, and he confined his activities to this week-end sale. During the first two weeks of October he continued his bond drives and sold a total of $5,450. I He was promised a ride in a jeep, but the promise was not fulfilled, so he wrote to President Roose- velt on the date of October 23 the following letter: "Dear Mr. President: "I am sending you newspaper clippings of my bond drives which I held the last two weeks. As you see in the clippings, I was prom- ised a ride in a jeep. One paper even said I had a ride in a jeep, but I didn't. Somebody in the Army is slipping. "I know you are very busy, but will you please see what you can do for me? "Thank you very much. "Respectfully yours "Carl J. Buehler, Jr. On November 10 Carl got a ride m a jeep newly-scrubbed in his honor. 'God, Honor And Country' Becomes Polish Army Motto London. (IC)  Polish military colors will now carry the motto "God, Honor, and Country," fol- lowing a decree signed here by Wladyslaw Raczkiewicz, President !of the Polish Govermnent-in-Ex- fie, making this inscription an of- ficial part of the army of Poland, KAP, Polish Catholic Press Agency, reports. The motto is deeply rooted in Polish traditions, having been used very early in Polish military history. The words were em- :broidered on the banner made in 1942, by Polish women in Wilno under German occupation, for the to Polish Air Forces in Great Brit- by am. The strict training in our mili- tary camps often may be irksome and oppressive; but it is bound to make men out of many boys,: who, otherwise, because of their inability to submit their wills to ethers would have developed into permanent misfits, to their own detriment and to the grief ROGOSKI .

Following the Bishop's address, a committee was forrned com- prised o widely known repre- sentatives of the Catlkolic, Pro- testant and Jewish fihs, the School Departmeht, thd-Y.M.C.A., the Police Department, the Paro- chial Schools, the Parent.-Teacher Associatioin and the Federation of Women's Clubs. The Roy. Joseph E. Schieder, Diocesan Director of the Con.fraternity of Christian Doctrine, was elected chairman of the committee. Working quietly for months, members of the committee can- vassed the city and soon acquired a collection of 500 salacious mag- azines, which were being sold openly on newsstands. On each magazine the purchaser noted the place where it was bought, the date, the quantity available and whether the magazines were avail- aole for youngsters. The com- mittee at first sought to stem the flow of indecent literature into :the city by calling in the three !largest distributors, through whom ad magazines sold in the city are handled. The distributors ex- plained they were forced to take the objectionable magazines from publishing companies in order to obtain popular magazines. If they refused the objectionable mag- azines, the distributors said, their supply was cut off. The committee then organized through the eity*s 17 police pre- cincts. All newsstand dealers of the city are being visited and ask- ed to join the movement. When objectionable literature is remov- ed from a stand, a dealer is given a plaque for display, which certi- fies that he has promised to "Fight the Filth Column" and that he has pledged that he will not possess, sell, lend or give away any ob- jectionable lietrature. The deal- ers are visited by the precinct committee workers and as long as a dealer keeps liis pledge, he is allowed to display the plaque. The committee's efforts have been supported strongly by the secular newspapers of the city and by the various organizations of the three faiths and civic groups.
