The Tigers used their tower- demy Trojans dropped two pre- season warmup basket ball games Wednesday and Friday, Dec. 15 and 17, to strong teams of their  district, Mansfield and Green- wood.

Ownership And Lnd Sound agrarianism is an es- sential element for the making of a total peace. The Conference holds it as a self-eviden truth that the core of sound agrarianism Js the private ownership of land. The farmer who owns the land he cultivates will work more eagerly and willingly and thus produce a greater abundance of wealth. Landownership is democracy's best defense because it safeguards best democracy's cherished herit- age of freedom and security. The ownership merely of good of con- sumption is not an adequate own- ership upon which to build or con- serve a true democracy The Family And The Land The family farmstead is the "holding where the family lives and from which it draws all or part of its subsistence." Family life becomes a common enter- prise for husband and wife, par- ents and children. The Confer- ence is convinced that a great *Above the clangor of the midnight bells one might hear the ringing of another Bell, whose chimes mean "llfe, liberty and the purmit of happiness."

Mc- Cullah, Tiger forward, was high point man of the night, with 15, and Lueken, Subiaco guard, was runner-up, with 6. Subiaco used Savary, Weedman, Wolf, Noble, Lueken, Brown, and Lux, while Mansfield's acres were McCullah, Hern, Elmore, Lasater, Claborn, and Price. Greenwood pasted Subiaco to the tune of 48-27 on the Green- wood court, Dec. 17, and the Greenwood reserves made it a perfect twosome in the double- header by taking the Trojan re- serves 19-13. Greenwood's for- ward ace, Bolin, led scoring in the main game with 17 points. Subiaco has a small team this year that will have trouble with the boys who sport extra height, as do Greenwood and Mansfield. But when they find the range they are likely to give any opponent a good battle. Coach Maus of Su- biaco is concentrating on a major wartime physical training pro- gram for all students, leaving lit- tle time to polish up a varsity. However, he is using basket ball as the main winter conditioner and hopes to develop some fair play- ers by midseason; The Trojans will play in the District 12 con- ference and match two or more games with each member school having a basket ball team. need of the times is to build a new generation of home-makers on the land--home-makers on full-time farms and home-makers on part- time farms. The Government And The Land The government as custodian and promoter of the common good has the grave duty to seek to achieve the widest possible dis- tribution of landownership. The government must not make taxa- tion on the land burdensome. When the war is over, one of the An old adage assures us that "silence is golden," but, on the Eve of New Year's we can hardly E agree.

Plans for that, the Conference in- sists with all the emphasis at its command, must be made now. Religion On TheLand The Conference would impress upon the farmer the need to give religion the first place in his home, and therefore foster in it a religious atmosphere by family prayer and home devotions. He must cooperate with his pastor in the work of religious instruction of his children. The rural parish is Divine Providence's agency to communicate the spiritual vitality need for good rural living; it is the anchor for a healthy rural population; it is the fountain head of wholesome rural culture; it is the natural center for the settle- ment of new families on the land. The Conference pledges its full support to rural pastors whose daily work is dedicated to "the conservation of the golden mass-- the rural population of the land." Education For The Land Better rural schools and better trained rural teachers are very much needed. The rural schools should by proper choice of sub- jects and methods develop,, en- large and perfect the creative abil- ities in boys and girls for the making of a good rural home and the building of a better rural com- munity. The Conference further- more advocates the establishment of diocesan or regional farm schools for boys and practical mhools for girls, in which tbe rural boys and girls will receive the education and practical train- ing necessary for success in farm- ing. An agricultural school to train men and women for both home and foreign missionary dis- tricts is also something to be de- sired.

Peace Tasks On The Land When the war has come to a conclusion and peace once more reigns in the world, the first task will be to rush food to the strav- mg people of war-stricken areas. i The next immediate task must be to rehabilitate quickly the stricken agricultural economy of nations that have suffered directly from the devastating impact of the war.

Nahlen, president, addressed the Subiaco Academy student body in special assembly Thursday, Dec. 16, giving them salutary advice on conduct during the Christmas season and dwelling on the special importance of hard study and good discipline in Catholic schools, particularly during the present war crisis. "War is the most terrible thing in the world right now," Father Abbot said, and dwelt on the fact that our nation, like the rest of the world, is experiencing dif- ficulties in maintaining high standards of transportation, busi- ness practice, supplies, and the like for civilian benefit while at the same time carrying on a global war. "All students should make i the best of the situation," Presi- dent Nahlen said. The head of the Benedictine school recalled hardships of pioneer days when he was a young student at Subiaco, more than forty years ago, and said that present conditions, even amid wartime difficulties, are not com- parable in strenuousness to those times. Difficulties are merely a challenge to the best that is in us, he said, and in direct ratio to how one meets such things his character is formed for life. Abbot Nahlen extended besl wishes of the school to all stu-. dents and their parents and rela- tives, and gave the student body his blessing for the holy season. The holidays began for Subiaco students noon, December 22. Will we not find mercy with God on our own deathbed if, in imitation of Mary, we have assist- ed at the deathbed of dying sin- ners? Season's Greetings TERRY, The Jeweler EL DORADO, ARKANSAS Tells Of Part Radio Plays In Morale Building Lo': Angeles. ()--The place that radio is playing in keeping up the morale of men and women in the armed services, even in the most remote outposts of American forces, was described by Captain Martin H. Work to members of the Catholic Film and Radio Guild when he addressed them here last week for the first time in almost two years. Captain Work is vice-president of the Guild and former chief con- sultant on radio for the National Catholic Community Service. Fol- lowing his pioneer work in de- veloping the radio facilities of the NCCS he was given an assign- ment with the Special Service Di- vision of the Army and subse- quently commissioned. Stressing the fact that radio everywhere in the expeditionary areas is always subject to the wishes of the supreme commander in any area, Captain Work praised the manner in which these com- manders have cooperated in bring- I ing to their units American pro-I grams which they are most anx-] ious to hear. ] Captain Work, who accompanied I Archbishop Spellman on several i flights over Egypt, penetrated the i Near East as far as Iran. He was recently assigned to Los Angeles under the command of Lieut. I Colonel Tom Lewis and is being I assisted in the providing of radio programs by Courtney Savage, former public relations director of the NCCS who attended the meeting.
