Educa- Ground Broken For $50,()00 Harrison Church November 13 Hmrison.- Ground breaking ceremonies for the new $50,000 brick church to be named in hon. or of the Mother of God were conducted by Father Harry Chinery at Harrison ,.m Thursday morning, November 13. Construction of the church, to.. wards which the Catholic Church ExtenMor . Society oantributad $5,000 to match an equal amount raised by the parish, is to be lo- cated on the cornet' oi Ridge and North Pine streets. The former residence of Lex McAlister and adjoining property, located two blocks west and a block north of the northwest corner of the pub- lic square, was recently purchas- ed by the St. Rose congregation. The home will serve as a vectmy and the corner lot for the new church. The new church, measuring 40 by 84 feet and seating approxi- mately 150 people, will be con- structed of buff brick. It may be that the entire cost plus furnish. ings of the completed church may cost nfore than the parish can raise at this time, but it is ex- pected that the church will be completed sufficiently for use by the congregation. The grounds and building of the o!d St. Blaise church and the house that has been used in re. cent years fez the home of the pator will be sold. In Aprll 1952 the small frame church, which was erected in the spring of 1910, was abandoned because its accommodations for fifty people ws too small for the growing congregatmn. At thai time larger quarters were secured i in the Bonsteel building in down. town Harrison. UI until 1912 there were per- haps two or three Catlolics scat- tered throughout the county, when Mr. and Mrs; Yred Pund and family arrived to live near Harrison. Mass was offered pc. c:,si,-mally by the pastor of the Catholic church in E u r e k a Springs. In 1913 more Catholic families came to Harrison to work with 1he railroad and Holy Mass was dfered on tim second Sunday o f each monlh.

G,finey, pastor of St. Patrick's parish, North Lit- tle Rock, 'the Sylvan Hills ter- ritory to which Father Willia,n Kopdsmeier was appointed last August, has nt yet been canon- ically' established as a praish. Hence no parish boundry lines have been given to the mission church of fhc Immaculate "Con. ception. The mission, church is only a few hundred feet from the popu- lar Sylvan Hills Country Club and golf course. Possibly the establishment ef the bomber base at Jacksonville will have much to do with de. cisio.ns that will eventually de- termine the limits and the pos- sibilities of this tcntiat parish. Father Kordsvneler has several undecided problems. He resides at 425 E. Kiehl, oft Highway 5, one mile from the church.

Msgr. Joseph A. Gallagher, pas- tor of the Immaculate Concep- tion parish, who originally in- spired the appeal for Reconstruc- tion Funds is pleased with the general response of his parislion- ers, and feels that the people, when all are given u chance to cooperate, will ' even oversub- scribe the designate(l total they set out to raise. Major repairs on the Immacu. late ,Conception church will be- gin as soon as the campaign is satisfactorily concluded.

(NC)--(Radio)--"Peter, pray to Jesus Christ for the Christian men buried near your body." This inscription, declared to date back to the end of the third cen- tury, has been found during excavations beneath St. Peter's basilica, cloee to the traditional spot that previously had been definitely identified as the site of the First Apostle's Tomb. Details about this now discovery were given in l'Ossrva- tore Romano in an article written by an Italian woman arch- eologist, Prof. Margherita Guarducci of the University of Rome.

The woman scholar, who a few days ago was received in private audience by His Holt; hess Pope Plus XII, has also reported on the result of her studies at a session of the Ponti. fical Roman Academy of Arch- eology. In her article she declar. cd it probable that results rf further studies regarding the veneration of St. Peter during the first centuries following his death will be publisied soon. The' rep,arted fincdngs serve tq furnish scientific proof for what has always been Chtistian tradi- tion: that the Prince of the Apos- tles, after dying a martyr's death in the year 64 or 67, was buriett at a spot on Vatican Hill which since that time, without inter- ruption, has been hld sacred and has been venerated. This spot is today beneath the Papal Altar of St. Peter's Basilica. According to the rcheologist' report, the inscription dates back to the latter part of the third cen- tury. This means that it was made before Constaatine, the fir.t Christian emperor, in the foustii century built the Ira.silica ov.r the tomb .of the Apostle:which, in the sixteenth century, gave WaS, lo the present structure.

The find- ings were .detailed last year in a report presented to His Holiness Pope Plus XII by tie late Msgr. Ludwig Kaas, secretary of the Sacred Congregation ef the Basil- ica of St. Peter. The report made It clear that the excavators did not find any sarcophagus or remains of , mausoleum containing the relies of St. Peter. However, they suc- ceeded in identifying and isolat- ing the proper grave of St. Peter a carefully segregated rectang- ular spot which was never en, croached upon by the mass of other tombs surround!ng it.

Edward's Parish is one that has kept pace with the population growth and the industrial de- velopment of the city of Texar. kana. Thirty years ago the beautiful English.Gothic Church was built--a splendid achieve. ment for a young and growing parish. Today the parish plan has ex- panded to include a modern, well equipped school. This project, undertaken by Father Louis Ja- nesko in the first year of his pas- torship at St. Edward's and com. pleted within a year was dedical- ed by His Excellency, Bishop Fletcher in December, 1950. The school is a one-story struc- ture of buff.colored matted face brick. The interior finish is pale green sponge brick; eoollite glass covers the entire wall, thus af. fording ample light in each class room while eUminating all glare. The floors are of asphalt tile and the ceiling of accoustical tile. The debt incurre:t in the con- struction ;f the), school is being rapidly liquidatel, o',ving to the generosity of the parishioners and their cooperation with Father Janesko whose zeM and intere& has been consistently active in all that pertains to promoting parish welfare.

The Kinder- garten room is spacious and 41ur- nished with all ttmse things that make up an attractive abode for preschool youngsters. Four cla:s Texarkana.--Under the direction of Rev.
