Memorial Service Pearl Harbor, Broadcast Dec. 7 Honolulu. (E)--The hero dead of all branches of the U.S. armed [orces in World War II will be remembered here at a Pontifical Mass of Requiem and a Memorial Service on the day when all Americans "Remember Pearl Har- bor." The Memorial Service, which will follow the Mass, will be broadcast over the nation-wide network of the Mutual Broad- casting System. The Most Rev. James J. Sweeney, Bishop of Honolulu, will pontificate at the Mass in Bloch Arena at the Pearl Harbor Navy Yard, on December 7, the second anniversar: of the Japanese at- tack which plunged the United States into the war. Army and Navy Chaplains will be the assistants to Bishop Sweeney at the Mass. The Bishop will deliver a brief sermon and give the absolution. Masters of ceremorties will be the Very Rev. Edwin J. Kennedy, Chancellor of the Diocese, and the Rev. Eugene R. Morin, Assistant Chancellor. Because of the law, the young men cannot receive this training in their own country. The Bishops' War Emergency and Relief Com- mittee also was able to get to the Holy Ghost Fathers in Marinique the otherwise unavailable sup- plies without which they would not have been able to offer up the Sacrifice of the Mass.

Conrh,sy of INTERTYPE CORPORATION :: d "%7 America is big and beautiful . . . a land for which to be thankful at any time, but especially a land to love at the present time in world history. To the Axis nations America must seem a very strange land. A land where people are free to think and to govern themselves, and actually say what they please. For these many freedoms we can thank a document which begins with these words: "We, the People...", for from this paper stem all,the rights we enjoy... from it come the greatness and strength that is !America. Greatness which offers education to a11.., which gives to each individual the right to shape his own life and fortune. Strength which safeguards American ideals in the midst of a war which seeks to deprive us of our heritage of freedom. OOR NO. 1 JOB: HELP WIN THE WARI Our company, and millions of other companies like ours, had its beginning in one such freedom. Today it is called Freedom of Enterprise, and it is responsible in a large sense for the making of our country. Today as we fight to preserve these American free- doms let us remember to be thankful for them; as never before they are the hope of tomorrow's World.
