CONWAY, ARKANSAS MOLL'S CAFE GOOD FOOD AT POPULAR PRICES ARKANSAS une of the most active Sodality organizations in Arkansas. Dele- gates have been sent to various Sodality conventions in San An- tonio and Dallas, Texas; Shreve- port and Alexandria, Louisiana; St. Louis, Missouri; and .ForL Smith, Arkansas. Under the di- rection of Rev. S. F. Jacklin, dio- cesan Catholic youth director, 3t. Mary's Sodality served as host to two of the largest state conveu. tion:, 1939 and 1940, as well as to a one-day district rally whi.:h wvs held in 1942. Delegates have also been sen': to Summer Schools of Cath,lic Act;on, for the last thirteen years. Tbis past summer, 15 sodal%ts at- tended S.S.C.A. in San Antonio, Tex..,; and in Chicago, Illinnis. Sodality Sponsors Projects Most active, as well as oldest organization on the campus, the Sodality has an interesting pro- gram. For sevmal years, its proj- ects have included the maintenance of Perpetual Adoration, which is carried out through volunteers, who give 15 minutes of one of their free periods to this devotion. Thus all day long there is a Ch:ld of Mary in the chapel before the Blessed Sacrament. Mt. St. Mary's Sodalists have :had a part in the Christmas Spirit- ual Bouquet for the Holy Father, since the origin of the custom several years ago. Consisting of three Masses and three Holy Com- munions from each Sodalist, the bouquet is cabled to the Holy Fa- ther as his Christmas gift .from the Sodalists of America. Distribution of Christmas bas: kets has always been one of the major projects of the Sodality. However, this year, because of food restrictions, the Sodality is concentrating on distributing Ca- tholic literature as "food for thought." Financing of a boarding scholar- ship for the past two years, a $500 contribution toward the renova- tion of the chapel, the purchase of Mass vestments and vases for the altars, a $100 seminary pledge on an endowment fund, and the sponsoring of annual retreats are a few of the many projects spon- sored by the Sodality. Am annual Sodality festivity is May Day, which is held each year on the first of May, with the crowning of the Blessed Mother by one of the First Communicants assisted by the Sodality officers and members. The procession of the students around the camps to the Grotto, for the ceremony of  crowning the statue of Our Lady, as Queen of May, opens the activi- ties of the May Fete. Sodality Meets Weekly Sodality meetings are held every Friday at the regular re- ligion period. First Friday of the month is devoted to the recita- tion of the Little Office of the Blessed Virgin; on second Fridays, a group discussion takes place; and regular meetings are held on the third and fourth Fridays of the month. St. Mary Mark, academy prin- cipal, has been Sodality moderator for the past seventeen years. Msgr. T. L. Keany, academy chap- lain is spiritual director and of- ficiates at the May Day Fete and at the annual reception of new members into the Sodality, held on December eighth, feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Christmas In the White House; President Reads "Carol" Aloud The Christmas season is always a busy but happy one around the White House. on December 24, President Roosevelt broadcasts the season's greetings to the nation's radio audience from the National Community Christmas Tree cere- mony.

(E)Catholic chap- lains and soldiers from the United States have been a source of edi- fication to the Catholic clergy and laity of New Zdaland, the Most Rev. James M. Liston, Bishop of Auckland, asserts in a letter re- ceived here by the at. Roy. Msgr. Michael J. Ready, General Secre- tary of the National Catholic Wel- fare Conference here. "I feel it a duty, even as it is a pleasure," writes Bishop Liston to Monsignor Ready, "to send you some word both of the Chaplains and the men whom it is our privi- lege to welcome to our country. "The Chaplains one and all, and there have been many of them here for a long or a short period, have made themselves at home: with us in the most fraternal way, and have edified us greatly by their fidelity to the highest priest- ly standards and their complete devotedness to their work. Bish- op and priests count it a blessing to know them and to have their friendship. "There are, of course, degrees in the Catholic life of the men, but whilst some, mostly through lack of instruction, are irresponsive, great numbers amongst the of- ricers, especially of the medical staff, and the men are a shining example to clergy and laity of all that is good; we are impressed by their spirit of prayer and rever- ence, and their sacramental life. The Lights Go Out A few days before Christmas (1942) the repairs to the rotunda of the Holy Sepulchre Basilica began, and the door of the Sacred Tomb was chained for the dura- tion of the work. When instruc- tions came to extinguish the san- ctuary lamps which burn at the Savior's Tomb, the Catholic and the Greek and Armenian Ortho- doe sacristans could not bring themselves to put out the lights which had so long kept a sacred vigil under their care. Instead, as the olive-oil of the lamps was not replenished, the lights went out one by one, until at last, for the first time in over a century, the silent, empty Tomb was left in darkness.

("Bud") Tomlin, head football coach at the University of Arkansas, who addressed the Subiaco Trojans and Paris Eagles squads, with their friends and supporters, at the an- nual post-season football banquet held in the Subiaco Academy din- ing hall, November 30. Coach Tm]in was" the principal speaker. He showed moving picture films of the university gnomes and made run,sing comments off Arkansas and its opponents. Tomlin, who has been retained another year as the university head football mentor, indicated .that pigskin prospects are 'much brighter for season at Fayetteville than they were the season::ust past. This year, he said, Arkansas was gravely handicapped by inabil- ity to use some 38 6ollegd players, sumo of them All:Americhns, en- rolled as Army traitfees. A Army regulation forbade their u}e. On the other hand, most of Aknsas' opponents had Nav or :'Marine trainees whom they".Codid use. This made for very neqt con- tests, and his boys .difl:vy well to keep the score as even?:8s they did in some insta'rces," Tomlin stated. Next year opponents will have V-12's in the. high, :"school rather than college age brackets freshmen instead of advanced stu- dents to draw from, and Arkansas can compete better:' 'Also, Arl- ansas has some 4-F holdovers who are going to be good., COch Tom- lin indicated.

Coaches Bob Martooth (Paris) and R. P. Maus (;ubiaco)were given a big hand for thor 'success- ful seasons, and intrq]ueed all their players. Popeye Wright nd Hoot Lueken, two 't/dout Paris [,nd Subiaco players, were toasted m a song composed by Miss Na- rine Shelton, Paris hgh .school musician. Miss Billy Fay e Hamp- ton, vocal soloist, was presented by Mr. Harlan Walker of the Paris faculty in a solo number. The joint Paris-Subiaco foot- ball banquet was started about' ten years ago by the Paris Kiwanis club. It is considered a unique example of intercommunity good fellowship, and has been .com- mented upon in sports circles. The two teams, though keen riv- :als for state honors, forget their rivalry to mingle in happy com- eraderie after the season is end- ed each year. "This is as it should be," W. C. Davis, banquet chairman, said. Players Make All-State Teams Subiaco this year placed its backfield ace, Hoot Lueken, son of Mr. and Mrs. J. J. Lueken, Helena, on the principal mythical  all-state non-conference team. He was a standout player in every game. Hank DeSalvo, sterling Subiaco tackle, barely missed a first-string rating and was a un- animous second-team nominee. Subiaco players receiving honor- able mention were' Ralph Oliver, end, Jack Sylvester, guard, Bob Bornhoft, end, Norbert Gorrell, halfback. Winning seven and losing two games this year, Su- biaco was rated seventh-high in the eptire state; including even ,the "Big Fifteen"or conference teams by Carl. Bell, sport writer for the Southwest-American of Fort Smith. The Subiaco boys scored 180 points o 97 for all op- ponents. Lodging Service Families Corporal Work Of Mercy New Orleans. (If.)  Renting rooms to servicemen and women and to members of their families may be called a Corporal Work of Mercy, the Most Roy. Joseph F. Rummel, Archbishop of New Orleans, told pastors in a request that they make known to their congregations the need for such accommodations. "These groups," he wrote, "come to New Orleans in large numbers, either on furloughs or farewell visits, prior to transportation for the battlefronts. The report in- dicates that demands have risen to 1,000 placements a week and that frequently it is impossible to accommodate these visitors, among whom at times there are found soldiers' wives and infants. "It may be well to emphasize that it is not only a patriotic ser- vice that the civilian population can render in this connection, but also a social and moral respon- sibility. Even from a purely spiritual or religious standpoint it comes well within the scope of the Corporal Work of Mercy, de- fined in our catechism under the caption 'to harbor the harborless.' Of course, the program includes the stipulation that visitors are willing to pay a fee for the ac- commodations and services which they receive."
