PAGE ElGin" THE GUARDIAN, DECEMBER 10, 1943 Missioners Glad To, Be Home, But Eager 1o Return ? o Post New York. 0D--Happy to be back in the United States, but anx- ious to return to their missionary fieldswhenever conditions per- mit, were the priests and Sisters who arrived at Leo House from the exchange liner Gripsholm.  The Gripsholm docked at Pier F in Jersey City at 9:48 o'clock. At 11 o'clock last night, Thomas F. Mulholland, Director of the N.C.W.C. Immigration Bureau Center for the Port of New York was still waiting at the Cathedral hostelry, 322 West 23 Street, for Re- ligious and pgiests Wo hd,rgt yet been clea]ed frort th f:hfPa With him were the Rt. Rev. Msgr. Thomas J. McDonnell, National Director of the Society for the Propagation of:the Faith, and Mother Theodore, of St. Francis Convent, Dubuque, who wa awaiting two members of her com- munity reported arriving from Shantung Province, China. Some Sent To Hospital All the repatriate who came to Leo House were in good health and spirits, but Mr. Mulholland reported several stretcher cases which had been sent straight to St. Vincent's Hospital. Among these were the Rev. Joseph J. Spahn of St. Columban's Foreign Missions Society, and Sisters Je- rome, Marie and Mary Jeanne of the Sisters of the Third Order Regular of St. Francis, Oldenburg, Ind. Father Spahn is a native of Buffalo. No details of their aft- merits were available. All Canadians, including the Re- ligious who arrived on the ex- change ship, were inaccessible to reporters. By an agreement be- tween United States and Canadian Governments they were escorted directly to a special guarded train enroufe to Montreal. The first arrival at Leo House, where relatives, priests and re- porters had been keeping vigil since 10 a.m., was Sister Mary Lucienne Touchette of the Sisters of the Good Shepherd, escorted by a Red Cross worker. She ar- rived 3:30 p.m. A native of Provi- dence, R. I., where her mother sister and two brothers make their home, Sister Mary Lucienne went to Japan in 1940. At the Convent of the Good Shqpherd in Sendai she was the only American in a community of twelve and ten of the community are still in Japan. Sister Mary Lucienne was first MOTHER LOVE [or interned in the residence of her" Bishop, the Most Rev. Michael Guarkawa, a native prelate. Af- ter remaining there for five and half months the sisters were re- turned to their convent, where they were interned with Domini- can and Ursiline sisters from the neighborhood. A State Depart- ment warning and concern for the hundreds o American mission- aries still in the Orient were the reasons advanced by the arrivals at Leo House for their silence on all details of their arrest and in- ternment. Four Priests Return Four priests of the St. Colum- ban's Foreign Mission Society who arrived at Leo House last night were the Revs. Philip Donohue, of Malden, Mass.; Michael Scanlon, of Buffalo; Eugene Spencer, of Ann Arbor, Mich., and Stanislaus Walczak, of Glassport, Pa. All have been stationed in China. Sister Bernette (Agnes Mc- Laughlin) of the Sisters of St. Francis, Springfield, Ill., spent an hour at Leo House last night be- fore boarding a train for Buffalo to visit her mother. She was at the Franciscan Hospital in Tsin- anfu, China, lot even years be- fore her internment. Alpheus Smithberger, of St. i Paul, Minn., coach at the Catholic University of Peking, arrived at Leo House with two clerics, Roger  Drolet, of Kankakee, Ill., and Al- fred Pion of Attleboro, Mass. The two clerics were interned in Mukden, Manchuria with 123 Ca- tholic missionaries. Brother Dro- let was principal of a school in Supingkai. :O "QUI VIVE?"

The dollar has lost its stabil- ity and so the prices of commodi- ties have skyrocketed despite ceiling prices. There is no in- centive to watch the cost of any- thing any more, This used to be FOR GOD AND COUNTRY--AN INSPIRING EXAMPLE In St. Edward's Church, Palm Beach, Fla., Catholic SPARS receive Holy Communion from Father Thomas G. Jones, who serves as Auxiliary Chaplain at the U. S. Coast Guard Training Station at Palm Beach. The SPARS, the Women's Reserve of the U. S. Coast Guard Reserve, are celebrating would be no argument about sub- sidles if the price of wages had been controlled from the be- ginning. Many of those workers who are being paid so well for so little skill and endeavor are won- dering about it all. How does the government expect such employ- ees to return to private employ- sent and to be satisfied with the wages that they can actually earn? This is going to be the real prob- lem after the war. After the last war the question was, "How are you going to keep them down on the farm after they have seen Broadway?" This time it is going to be a more serious economic problem.

Not that they ' c0m- promise their religious tenets, but they help each other in every way they can. One Sunday night, the Catholic chaplain at the LaGarde General hospital, in New Orleans, received a telephone call from his Protestant partner, asking him to attend a dying sol- dier of his faith to whose bedside he had been summoned. The explanation for the Protestant minister's request was that he had takeu the afternoon off to spend with some friends C H M R O I T s H T E !

" III I I quota. They were eventually re- scued almost dead from hunger and exposure. This is not the manner in which a great nation should finance a war. One of the slogans that is supposed to draw money right out of the public pocket is "They give their lives, you lend your dollars." Why such favoritism to some? This is rep- resented as everybody's war. If young physically fit persons must give their lives, why are not oth- ers obliged to give of their pos- sessions. This country should be just as dear to the old people as it is to the young. It seems that every one should pay in the man- ner in which he can best do so. It has often been said that many big business men get rich on war profits. If this be true, war can never be outlawed until war prof- its are outlawed. If the young people must leave their homes and their life ambitions to fight and to be maimed or even to give their lives on the battle field, it seems just that those who furnish the sinews of war at home should not be allowed to prosper. Rath- er let these profits go to finance the war. If this were done there would be no need of all the bally- hoo about lending dollars. The history of all wars shows that many give their lives and their happiness while others make huge profits. The thing to do is to stop all this profiteering. Better still, take all the men who are responsible for declaring war and put them in the front line to fight Any one knows that the war un- der such conditions would be over very quickly. Bully-hoe, bjnk and profits promote wars. Noted British Jest, Convert, Dies At 79 London. (E)--Eleven days after keeping the 50th anniversary of bis entrance into the Society of Jesus, the Rev. George Hayward Joyce, S.J., has died at the age of 79. He was a convert to the Church, his father being the Anglican vi- car of HarroW-on-the-Hill. Father Joyce himself was or- dained for the Anglican ministry and his younger brother became second Anglican Bishop of Mon- mouth. Father Joyce was the au- thor of several scholarly works. whose home was quite a distance from the hospital. Asked by the Catholic chaplain what had to be done to make the last moment of the Protestant boy easy, the shepherd of the lad's soul replied, "Oh, just sit by him and let him hold the Bible." I This narration may seem to be a sarcastic observation, but it is not intended as such. What else or what more can a Baptist or Methodist minister do for a dying brother? Personal words of com- fort and encouragement are his whole stock in trade. Consola- tions of divinely inspired religion are not to be had. The founders of Protestant sects saw to that. Is is a wonder, then, that Ca- tholic chaplains and their services are eagerly sought by loys of all creeds in preference to what their own have to offer? The Lutheran chaplain at Camp Harahan, a 30,000-man area, ar- ranged with the Catholic priest to let him have the large assembly hall for 11 o'clock on Easter Sun- day morning. He intended to work up a religious mass prayer meeting in solemn commemoration of Christ's Resurrection. The re- quest was cheerfully accorded, the Catholic services being held at earlier hours. Three Masses were celebrated, with crowds packing the building to the doors. At ten minutes after eleven, the spacious auditorium was occupied by the zealous minister and three sol- diers. What is the explanation for the seeming religious apathy on the part of Protestant soldiers? Peo- ple join organizations for what they personally can get out of them. This is the main reason why some lightweight Catholics will give up their religion to be-i come members of the Masonic or- der. They throw overboard their allegiance to the old faith witb the hope of benefiting themselves materially. A young man in civil life may not feel the need of religious in- fluence and moral support; but, when he is enlisted and begins to visualize the uncertainty of life and the dangers that lie ahead, he instinctively wishes to take hold of some bracing thoughts, strength- ening convictions and visual mean that will be helpful to him in building up his spiritual morale. The non-Catholic boy often senses and sees that there is more to be obtained in the Catholic denomi- nation, with its impressive cere- monies and its definite, consistent and soul-touching doctrine, than elsewhere. He naturally gravi- tates to the Catholic chaplain. Father Phillips, the Catholic chaplain attached to the Atlanta federal penitentiary, declared that, although only one-fourth of the inmates are Catholic, he had more parlor calls than the combined .number of the other two regular chaplains, Protestant and Jewish, both excellent gentlemen. It is clear that, when men are faced with serious thoughts for the fu- ture, they will grasp at what gives them the most comfort, hope and encouragement. You will never hear a condemned person turning from the Catholic to another faith; but it often happens that a crim- inal, about to be executed, wishes to meet his Maker fortified by the consolations of the true church. Ordinarily, if people were to follow a religion from a purely logical and theological basis, they could not help but be most force- fully attracted to the Catholic faith after an honest and solid comparative study. However, men and women who are mater- ially practicalthis applies espec- ially to our American citizens-- give religion little thought and consideration; they appear to be satisfied with nominal affiliation with the church to which their mothers belong. , Americans, in tiaeir daily walk through life, seem to be little con- cerned about the hereafter.
