On the day of his birth, March 14, 1921, he was blinded totally. Sister Delfina Grazialo, a member of the Missionary Sisters of i the Sacred Heart of Jesus, is at the community's convent in Seattle, Wash., enjoying good health. But in December of 1925, Sister Delfina literally was a living skeleton, having undergone fot3r operations which gave her no relief. Physi- cians agreed there was not the slightest hope for her recovery. Private Smith and Sister Del- fina are the beneficiaries of the two miracles attributed to the in- tercession of Blessed Mother Fran- ces Xavier Cabrini, which were accepted by the Holy See at the time of her beatification in 1938. The striking fact that Private Smith and Sister Delfina are alive and well today is made the more noteworthy by the announcement from Vatican City that the Sacred Congregation of Rites will meet on January 11 in the presence of day from 4:15 to 6:00 and 7:15 to 8:30. Monthly bingo will be held at Good Counsel hall, sponsored each month by one of the parish groups. The first one will be Friday night, Jan. 14th, at 8 under the sponsor- ship of the Holy Name Men. All are invited to attend these. At- tractive prizes will be given. His Holiness Pope Plus XII to con- sider the decree of Tuto, the final step before the actual canoniza- tion of Mother Cabrini. Private Smith was born in New York ity. Soon after his birth, as is prescribed, a nurse placed a solution of silver nitrate in the eyes of the new-born babe. The solution should have been 1 per cent, but through an error it was 50 per cent, and burned the sight from the infant's eyes. Physicians examined the infant and agreed only a miracle could restore his sight. The Superior of the hospital with all the Sisters and nurses of- fered fervent prayers, begging the intercession of Mother Cabrini. Their prayers were heard. On the morning of the fol- lowing day, March 15, three visiting physicians made a careful examination of the eyes of the stricken infant. To their amazement they found the eyes were perfect, cured and entire. See CABRINI on page 7 T00O 'RI l"N THE No more joyou s news could come to us in the new year dawning than word that the war had ceased. Yet, as evident as it is that such word WILL come, it ill behooves any American to let his dreams become too rosy. Now is a time when the full weight of Allied might must be pressed harder than ever .... a time when it would be folly to think we had gained the opportunity to rest on past achievements and contemplate a world of peace. That time will come only when every bit of intolerance and bestiality has been crushed forever. The Arkansas Power & Light Company along with other business- managed power companies throughout the nation has worked ceaselessly to supply one of the world's greatest blessings: ample electric power. That this power has played a decisive part in plac- ing us on the threshold of victory cannot be denied. Yet, in 1944, our full resources will be devoted to helping win the war .... and When peace has come .... to helping even more to build Arkansas.
