It was our shel- tering rock in the time of storm. I never once thought of associat- il~g" the language of Jesus to th( Apostles with the Catholic Church. But since I have joined this church the meaning is so clear that "a way- faring" man, though a fool, need not err therein," if he will stop and con- sider. In my lecturing on the Klan I al- ways defended the Catholics and Jews. I did this on the common ground of eitizenshii) and had no more idea of becoming a Catholic than turning Mohammedan. After we had drifted two years ("drift" is the word that best describes our for- lorn condition), something impor- tant happened. Dr'. Carr, of Chick- asha began sending us Catholic pa- pers and magazines. We will always thank God for Dr. Carr. Among !the papers were The Southwest !Courrier, Our Sunday Visitor, Truth and Columbia. Later there was mis- sionary literature, the "Extension Library," and all filled with the good, Father Wihverding, pastor of Sacred Heart, Church, Oldahoma City. THEY KNEW Somewhere around the year 1843, Orestes A. Brownson, the great Am- erican thinker and convert, sat in a Washington club with Calhoun and Buchanan, discussing the claims of the Catholic Church. Daniel Web- ster chanced in and joined the con- versation. Buchanan told Webster what they were talking about. "We were talking about the Cath- olic Cbureh," said he, "and I, for one, am pretty well convinced that it is necessary to become a Catholic to get to heaven." "Have you just found that out?" asked Webster. "Why, I've known Vhat for years."

Which is wrong, the Bible, or the Church? She said no doubt the Church was in the wrong, but how could this be so when Jesus said "the gates of hell shall not prevail against it." To persons raised in the Protestant Church, yet knowing that swearing allegiance to "wizards" and "dra- gons" was absolutely incompatible with the plain teaching of Scripture, the question had no promise of easy solution.
