But the burden upon the shoulders of those who maintain these Catholic Leprosaria are many and ever present. The un- fortunate victims of this dread disease must be carefully nourish- ed if a cure is to be effected and if physical suffering is to be en- dured. "Our doctor has pre- scribed cod liver oil and malt for most of our patients," writes Bishop Julien. "We have man- aged to get one fifty pound drum of the former from South Africa, but we need at least fifty such drums and where, unless from America, are the funds forthcom- ing for such a purchase?" This is but one evidence Of the many and pressing' needs of our missionaries who care for the lepers. Won't you help them by contributing to the CHRISTMAS LEPER FUND, knowing that your charity will be rewarded a hun- dredfold? "Conway's Finest FumL,|, See'vice Consolations In Kenya "The forming of the Natie Clergy has .always been of major importance in Kenya Colony. Now We are delighted to learn that there are five students in the major seminary with twenty in the Minor. "This means we have a full house," writes Father Reep- er, Rector of the Seminary. "As a matter of fact, we need not tell you that the buildings are primi- tive in the extreme but they will have to suffice until after the war." "In June we were privileged to have a visit from Archbishop Spellman who admired our work and wished us to bring it to the attention of American Catholics. Right now our problem is to sup- ply food and clothing for our boys. As a matter of fact, cloth is very scarce, thread is hardly to be had, while buttons can only be found in some obscure little shop, but the work goes on and some day the Church in Kenya will be proud to have not only its Native priests but a Bishop indigenous to the land." Catechists' Problem "Our catechists' problem is as acute as ever," writes Father Coe- ]hen of Nangina, Africa." "After having dismissed for lack of funds 244 of my 280 catechists, it is h even a ard struggle for me to keep that handful of 36 catechists left to me at their important work as co-missionaries, as I can truly call them, in spreading and teach- ing our holy religion to the thou- sands of heathens in our district, all of whom are only too eager to know and embrace our holy Faith " . "Tle heaviest blow Nangina sustained lately was the unfort- unate death by blood-poison of Our most capable Sister-nurse Sr. Oda. Surely our Lord has given Little Rock, Ark.

Altar Society Holds Election Of Officers Forrest City.--The Ladies of the Altar Society of St. Francis Chfirch met at the Parish Rectory, Monday night for their December business meeting. This meetlng was advanced two weeks on ac- count of the rush of the Christ- mas season later on in the month. A report of the wonderful suc- cess of the sale of Christmas and other greeting card sale was made by the members present. Plans were discussed and arrange- CONFERENCE 3801 Grand Ave., Des Molnes. ia. lIomesteaders Pay Off The increase of wages, and the increase in working time of min- ers has enabled seven of the Granger Homesteaders to make payment in full for their Home- stead units, and one other resid- ent has made a sizeable reduction in his debt. The town of Granger lies about 23 miles northwest of Des Moines Iowa, and just outside the village itself lies the Granger Home- steads. Three miles beyond stand the coal mine and the mining camp, where many of the home- steaders formerly lived. Two hundred and twenty-five acres of good ]and were purchased in 1935, by means of a loan from the Fed- eral Government; and 550 homes --four, five, and six-room houses ---on plots of from three to eight acres, were erected. Each house has a furnace, hot-water heater and other modern conveniences. By paying the Government from $13.50 to $15.00 a month each fam- ily began buying its home out- right. The seven Homesteaders (and more will follow'suit during the coming year) have taken advan- tage of the clause in their govern- ment contracts permitting them to make advance payments on their units in multiples of ten dollars. In this way, they have not only reduced their payments, but will avoid paying all interest charges. Unless the government changes the present plan, those who have made payment in full will not receive deeds to their respective properities until Sep- tember 1, 1952. The reason for this is that the government wish- es to protect these people and make certain that no one will en- danger his security by either the sale or mortgaging of his prop- erty. During these ten years, they will be under the control of the Homestead Board of Di- rectors, as they are at the pres- ent time. This is a definite ad- vantage to the Homesteaders, since they receive greatly re- duced insurance rates as mem- bers of the Association. The land surrounding .each farmhouse is laid out in lawn and trees. The remaining land is us- ed for garden plots, orchard, and pasture. The gardens produce all the vegetables needed for fam- ily consumption during the sum- mer and winter months. Any-  thing over and above family needs !is for the market. But there is absolutely no destructive, eom- Author-Pastor The Rev. Anthony C.S.Sp., pastor of St. Conway, edits a column The Guardian each Rural Catholic Committee of th, South.
