PAGE SIX THE GUARDIAN, NOVEMBER 28, 1952 Chaplains In ,A,rmed Forces To Fix 'Face of Catholicism' In U.S., Even In The Next Decade Washington. (E)--'I'he extent to which spiritual care is provided to Catholics in the Armed Forces could well determine "the face .:K Catho'.icism in the United State's" in the next decade. This point is brought out in the annual report on he activities of the Milit,ry Ordinariate of the United States. The Military Oc- dinariate embraces all Catholics in the Armed F orc6. Tl{e report is signed by His E,ninence ]ra,:- cis Cazdinal Spelh-:an, Military Vicar; Bishop William R. lrno., Military Delegate, and Bshop James H. Grilfiths, Chancellor o the Military Oldinariate. "Inasmuch as it is generally conceded that Catholics .ccnstilwe about 31% of the Armed Forces," lhe report sa:d, "this x. uld me 'l t'hat each year the Cathoiic Church in this country tins the obligation of providing for the spiritual weliare cf 1,147,000 m ill t a r y personnel: Note well tat this does not TEXARKANA ;gnify the toal yrieMly nd pas. a l over the world Catholic chap- l.,ral obligation of 1he Cathoi:,: lains must Drovide spiritually l:cr chap ain for in thi., country and the wives an.t f::mihes of thou. ............................................................ sands , f olficers and enlisted [00ew Archblshop Pictured at the annual general meeting of the Bishops of the United States, held at Catholic University, Washington, Novem- ber 12-14, is Bishop Thomas A.

"if .for the moment we leave as:de the dependents and specu- late on the number of 1,147,000 men and won:en oi military per. . p.nel, it would mean that nearly 11,500,000 Catholics of the United States would be affected in the next decade. Eleven million pet'- sons will be exposerl to the dan. gers of military li;:e and could well change the face ,of Catholi- cism in the United States, if they are spiritually neglected or al least not adequately provided with spiritual guides." The report showed that there were 999 Catholic chapmins in the Army, Navy, Air Force and Merchant Marine in 1952, as com- pared with 3,080 Catholic chap- loins wo were in, the armed ser. vices ip 1945, at the cl,)se of Worid War II. And yet, the 999 Cath. alia chaplains reported 20,172 baptisms in 1952, as com.ared with the 19,795 baI=tisms which nearly three times as many chap- lains were able to report in 1945, and as compared with 14,090 baptisms which 2,517 Catlalic chaplains were able to report in 1943. "From early morn until late at night," the report continued, "there is work, work, work" far the Catholic chaplain--"but work for Christ which gladdens the soul of the true priest although t may still demolish the body."

Freddie Metrailer, Texarkana Knights of Colurn Are Noted For Ihe Assistance, Cooperation They Give Parish Texarkana.--Under the influ, members to replenish the ranks ence of Rev. Oliver C. Clarendon, then pastor of St. Edward's Church in , Texatkana, Ark. Council No. 2650 of the Knights of Columbus -&as instituted June 1927, with J. P. Reynolds as first grand ln.ight and 65 charter members. A sort of a renaissance seemed to prevail in the Parish at that time. and the influence that car- ries so many of the Church's ac- tivities and improvements to a successful conclusion, was also felt in the newly organized K. of C., council that created a true spirit of fraternity among the members, so that unity of purpose and of action was easily achieved, and success assured. The material success of St. Ed- ward's Parish so impressively man,ifested by the beautiful new Church, the orgamzation of a High-School, the 40 acre ceme- tery and many other improve- ments, was even overshadowed by the religious atraosphere that seemed to mature the budding vocations in s,a many of the boys and girls of the parish, tha, t finally lead them into the Priest- hood and Sisterhoo.l. That the Knights of Columbus paspered under such influences was to be expected, and during these last 25 years, the council has closely cooperated with the pastors ir their every undertak- ing, and the long list of grand knights has maintained that loy- alty and interest in all parish af- fairs that made the little coun- cil, truly the right hand o tlae Church. Quite a few of the old timers have passed on from their labors during the past 25 years, but fortunately there is always suf- ficient new and more afftive lion held each year on the Feast of Christ The King, and on Holy  Thursday the Circlc:s rotate the i hours of the entire day in Adorn- Merry Christmas and tion of the Blessed Sacrament.
