(Continued from Page 1) with the extramural activities of their children. The most impor- tant of these that should be caxe- fully watched is their companions. Some parents seem to neglect en- tirely the recreational affairs of their children. Yet associates and means of amusement arc tre- mendously important in the lives of the young. Many parents pre- tend a great interest in school work. Witness the large number of mothers who belong to the Parent-Teachers' Association. Yet vast as the organization is, the abuses in the school system grow apace. Fine buildings and equip- ment axe on all sides, but nothing is ever done about real character training in the schools maintained by the public. Teachers must have certain degrees and pupils must obtain a certain number of credits. That is modern education. Prom- inent educators throughout the world have laid bare its fallacy but nothing is done to correct it. Church authorities have warned parents of their obligations both at home and in school, but they listen to the song of their own par- ticular siren and refuse to respond. The day of reckoning will come. Some thirty years ago, some readers may remember that fax back, there was a dance called the "Can-Can." It was practiced in the worst dance halls of the underworld in Paris. It was in- troduced into this country, but was danced only in the lowest "dives' by the most profligate, habitues of such places. Imagine the surprise of some of the older generation when a metropolitan newspaper announced that the Junior League had taken up this dance. The notice in the social column said that the girls would dance the "Can-Can" and would be Joined by the men for the "Big Apple." The Junior League is composed of the social elite. Thus has the depravity of public moral placed the seal of approval upon the worst indecencies of for- mer years. It seems that there is no limit to human wickedness in this age of abandoned moral standards. The dances which are Annual Fall Fair Is Held At Pocahontas Pocahontas, Oct. 25.--The an- num fall fair for the benefit oct St. Pauls Church will be held Oc- tober 27. Attractive features have been planned, and the members of the Catholic Ladies Club who sponsor this event are anticipating a successful fair. October 12, members of Poca- hontas Council No. 2443, Knights of Columbus, very fittingly ob- served Columbus Day by spon- soring a bingo party for the bene- fit of the Catholic High School in Pocahontas. The ladies of St. Paul's school Auxiliary served a delicious :chicken supper preceding the games. The affair was a success, socially and financially. !

Directing many of his thoughts to the number of non- Catholics who attended the serv- ices, he described for them the! work of the Church and its great cause. One's first duty, the Bishop said, was to God and unless this one obligation is fulfilled other good works are of little or no avail. Following the ceremonies, a din- ner was served by the Ladies Auxiliary Society of St. Michael's in the school to more than 60 guests. His Excellency, seven dio- cesan priests, five Dominican priests, one Benedictine priest of Subiaco, two brothers from Chris- tian Brothers College of Mem- phis, 20 Fourth Degree Knights of Columbus and prominent West Memphis and visiting laymen at- tended.

Nun Is Killed as Auto Careens to Sidewalk Montreal, Oct. 22. .--Struck by an automobile, Sister Julie Ma- rie, of the Convent of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary, was fatally injured. She died in No- [tre Dame Hospital. She and Sister Marie Alcide were walking on the sidewalk :when one of two automobiles in a collision mounted the sidewalk and knocked both nuns down.
