Lallle St., Chicago, III Rockford.--Members of the fac- ulty attended the fortieth annual convention of the National Com- mercial Teachers" Federation at the Hotel Sherman, Chicago, the week-of Dec. 27. Sister M. Car- mel, O.P., head of the commerce department at Muldoon. has been actively affiliated with the Na- tional Commercial Teachers' feder- ation for many years. At the Illinois regional meeting of the Catholic-Library association of the American Library associa- hen, held last week at Rosary col- lege, River Forest, Sister Francis Paul, O.P., librarian at Muldoon, was chairman of the high school round table conference. Several of the faculty also accompanied her to the :merican Library associa- tion meeting at the Palmer House, Chicago. Classes will be resumed on Jan. 10, at 8:45 a. m. Rockford. -- The Sisters at Mul- cleon as well as the students and friends of#, the high school were deeply shocked to hear of the sud- den death of the sister of Sister Jane Marie and Sister Edwina Clare, heads of the Latin and Sci- ence department, respectively. The deceased, Nell Crook, was buried from St. Clement's church, Chi- cago, on Friday, Dec. 31, with Rt. Rev. Msgr. F. A. Rempe celebrant of the Requiem High Mass. Mss Crook has long been known in Catholic women's clubs throughout Chicago. Mass for the happy re- pose of her soul will be offered both in the convent and school chapels in the near future. SERMON TOPIC The Subject of the parochial ser- mon for-Jan. 9, the First Sunday after Epiphany is "The Effects of Baptism." Since, however, by ]n- dult of the Holy See the- Fens of the Ho/y Name is el,err :ed on this Sunday in nearly every par- ish of the diocese, thoughts c'.n- cernin t.he Feast may ta . pre- cedence over those , :,nnc'::.ed with the -:cheduled series of in- structions. English Archbishop Lauds Boy Scouts London.--The Archbishop of Liv- erpool, the Most Rev. Richar Downey, is urging all the Catholic boys in his archdiocese to join the Boy Scout movement. "It matters not whether the boy be rich or poor," he says, "he will assuredly be the richer in mental, and physical stamina; that is to say, richer in character, for hav- ing trained as a scout. Th' move- ment offers to the average boy advantages which cannot be gained in any other way. "The Scout must be faithful to God and the Chul;ch, careful in the observance of his religious duties. In this way he will perfect by grace in the supernatural order the good habits which he had formed in the natural order, and become a man of character and a man of God."

Like Fascism, Naziism Rockford. -- Mrs. Ellen Jilbert,lholds that all rights, personal, poll- for many years prominent in dio-[tieal, economic, religious, etc., orig- cesan religious activities, died at her home, 604 Whitman street, Dec. 30, after an illness of five years' duration. Referring to her civic and religious activities the Rock- ford Morning Star, on the day fol- lowing her death, gave a summary of the many activities in whose development she participated. "Shortly after the creation 9/ the Rockford diocese and appointment of the Rt. Rev. Peter J. Muldoon as its first hishop," says the Star, "she and other Catholic women of the city organized the Catholic Voman's league and pioneered in local social-work at St. Elizabeth social center. She also was active in the St. Cecelia Music guild of the league. "In addition, she was one of the most active workers in the diocese for the National Catholic Welfare conference, having served as pres- ident of the Diocesan council of the National Council of Catholic Wo- men. She worked throughout the diocese with Bishop Muldoon in organizing parish councils, and he depended largely on her organizing ability to establish the society throughout this area. She was a frequent delegate to national con- ventions of the conference and was a delegate in 1928 to the InteTna- tional. Catholic Action "Woman's conference in Paris. "Active in her parish, she was a member of the Altar and Ros- ary society of St. Mary's church for a number of years. "She had been a me'mber of the hoard of directors of the Rockford Public Welfare association and the Visiting Nurses association and helped organize and was a member -of the first board of directors of the Rockford Social Service federa- tion, forerunner of the Rockford Community fund. "She was also autive in the Rock- ford Woman's club and the Men- delssohn club and was a life mem- ber of the Rockford Art club." Mrs. Jilbert was the daughter of Andrew and Margaret Culhane and was born at Cherry Valley Jan. 7, 871. Her marriage to Harry J. Jilbert, now vice-president of the Geo. D. Roper corporation, took place at St Mary's church here on Sept. 7, 1892, with Rt. Rev. Msgr. J. A. Solon officiating. Be- sides her husband she is survived b" two brothers, Drs. T. H. Culhane and A. B. Cuthane: and four sis- ters, Mrs. John Sullivan, Mrs. Jo- seph Sullivan and Mrs. Louis H. Shannon, all of Rockford, and Mrs. T. P. Dooley of Chicago. The solemn funeral Mass took place at St. Mary's church-last Monday morning. The Most Rev. Bishop Edw. F. Hoban assisted at the throne with Rev. F. J. Keean and Re:. C. H. Quinn as deacons of honor. The celebrant of the] Mass was Very Rev. C. J. Ford,[ O.S.A., assisted by Father Sullivan, I O.S.A., as deacon, Rev. Joseph] Heab a suhdea ." .. - con ,and Rex. L ! J. Franey as master of ceremon-] ies. Also present, in the sanetu-] ary were Rt. Rev. Msgr. John P.I McGuire. -V'ery Rev. Msgr. W. G. i McMillan, ReTs. John Quigtey, Em- I mett Murphy and Thomas Green.[ The service was attended by] many former associates in Catho-] lic welfare work from all parts of] the diocese. Rt. Rev. Msgr. F. F. Connor, pastor of Holy Angels church, Aurora, preached the fun-!l eral sermon and paid eloquent I tribute to Mrs. Jilbert as organ- I izer and loyal supporter of Catho- lic endeavor. The final absolution was imparted by His Excellency, Bishop Hoban. Insure Church To Pay Debt Denver, Colo.--Paying a church debt off by means of endowment msuranch policies is the plan in- augurated by the Rt. Rev. Msgr. inate with and can he modified at will by the state Like Fascism, Nazism is in conflict with the Catholic teaching on individual right and othe  relations between the state and the individual. In praciice Nazism deprives the Church of necessary freedom of worship and freedom of education. Like Fascism, it is excessively na- tionalistic. Moreover, it adheres to a theory of radical superiority and racial purity which are without foundation in fact, and which have been used as a pretext for an enor- mous amount of injustice and un- charity toward the Jewish race. Like Fascism, Nazism does not permit the formation of voluntary political societies. It has destroy- ed the Center party in Germany. Like Fascism, it does not tolerate effective trade unionism. In its treatment of both trade unions and political societies, it has violated the principle laid do:n by Pope I Leo XIII in his encyclical Rerum t Novarum." I Attitude Teward Communism I Asserting that "the attitude of 1 the Catholic church toward Corn- I munism is clear: decisive, and long i established," Monsignor Ryan add- ed that "it is an attitude of com- prehensive condemnation." "Catholics oppose Communism," Monsignor Ryan explained, "not merely on the basis of authority, but also on the basis of its nefar- ious political and economic consti- tution. As a political system it is, like Fascism and Nazism, totarli- tarian. "It holds that all individual rights of every description come from the state and can he destroy- ed at will by the state. It central- izes all power---executive, legisla- tive and judicial--in one man. It accepts and acts upon the doctrine that the end justifies the means. It suppresses liberty of speech, of the press, of assembly and poli- tical opposition. It believes in vio- lent overthr6w of all bouregois governments. Under its economic aspects, it holds that all land and sources of production belonging to individuals or associations may be violently seized without compensa- tion. It aims at the elimination of the class struggle by eliminating all other classes than the proletar- iat. It substitutes for 'wage sla- very' under capitalism, serfdom under a Communist dictator." Pointing out that the word 'de- mocracy" in its most widely ac- cepted sense means government with the consent of the governed, and next means employment of reI}resentative government, Mon- signor Ryan told the society that this principal "was explicitly de- fended by a long list of Catholic theologians and canonists between the ninth and sixteenth centuries" and that "at the end of the six- teenth century and at the begin- ning of the seventeenth, the tradi- tional Catholic doctrine on the right of self government received its final and systematic form at the hands of Cardinal Robert Bellar- mine, S.J., and the Rev. Francisco Suarez, S.J." "In recent years," he said, "it ha been argued with some persuasiveness that the teaching of Bellarmine and Suarez exercised a fairly direct influence upon our American Declaration of Independence." Right of People to Choose "The traditional Catholic doc- trine concerning the moral oigin of political authority includes no declaration concerning forms of government," Monsignor Ryan de- clared. "The community may de- cide either explicitly or implicitly, either formally or tacitly to have a monarchy, an aristocracy, a de- mocrary or anY modification or combination of these which seeks Hugh L. McMenamin. rector of the the common good and preserves cathedral, here. [the rights of individuals." According to the plan, $0 ntem- I "It is a commonplace of history," hers of the parish will take out tile added "that the Catholic church 20 year $1.000 cnddu nmnt policies! has gladly accepted the democratic with the cathedral as beneficiary. I form of political organization. It Thus in two score years the cathe-lis also a historical fact that repre- dral will be cleared of its $80,000 sentative government was exem- indebtedness.

THli ti|TY FOR THE PROPAGATION OF TI'IE EH HOME AND FOREIGN MISSIONS Rockford Director, Very ReD. Msgr, Francis J, Conron 1245 N. Court St,,. Rockford Phone: Main 2140 Office Hours 9:00 to 12:00 The Feast of the Epiphany January 6, the Feast of the Epiphany, is one of the days when members of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith may gain a plenary indulgence for them- selves or for the Holy Souls. The day was chosen by the Sacred Con- gregation of Propaganda for the privilege, not only because it is a principal feast of the Church, but also because it has an emphatic missionary significance. The expectation of a Savior was rewarded rather generally as a Jewish prerogative. True enough, in the personages of the shepherds on Bethlehem's hillsides, the first revelation of the God-Man was made to the Jews. But the heav- enly Father of all peoiles did not permit many days to elapse, before he also miraculously led the Gen- tiles to the feet of the Universal King. The invitation from above to both Jew and Gentile was a clear forecast of Jesus Christ's role as King and Savior of all men in the world. Herod, the Great King of the Jews, had his chance. rould that he had joined the Wise Men in Jerusalem and with them had fol- :lowed the star 'until it stood over i wher the child was.' Such an act i of conformity to the very evident will of God would have merited his own salvation and that of many other souls. Likewise, every Catholic has a chance to perpetuate the Epiphany in reality What else is the con- version of a soul, except the mu- tual revelation of that soul and its Creator? In the Catholic Missions such a manifestation of God to man is of daily occurrence. As the star led the Wise Men, the mis- sionaries lead the infidel and pa- gan. It is the members of the So- ciety for the Propagation of the Faith, who sustain the missioners in the works of conversion. There- fore, a member's prayers and dues are as precious in the sight of God as the gold, frankincense and myrrh that the Wise Men offered tgAhe new-born Babe. Minute Biography ALEXANDER GUASC0 Late general secretary of the Central Committee in France of The Society for the Propagation of the Faith. Perhaps, a more popular man never lived than Alexander Guns- co, a secretary of an international organization for 39 years. He had friends in M1 parts of the world; friendships that "*'ere born of ma- terial interest in a divine cause, and cemented throughout the years with joy in successes and sym- pathy and help in sorrow. At the age of twenty-nine, with a reputation as lawyer and orator already "*'ell established, and with a most promising career already in the offing, Alexander Guasco, with- out much deliberation but with very much faith, cast his lot with the French Society for the Propa- gation of the Faith. He died on June 26, 1922. Un- doubtedly, he was one of the great- est of all Christians, who in the past century labored in the home service of the apostolate for the Propagation of the Faith. If ....... Gemany Regains Its Colonies If Germany regains some of its colonial possessions how will the triumph affect our missionaries and our missions? From "*'hat we read about Germany, we would.say that Herr Hitler will do all in his power to wipe them out. Great Britain, who has extensive hold- ings in the East, is already appre- hensive and some of her foremost writers feel that the question i.s on that is bound to make head- lines in the very near future. It is something for Catholics to think about NOW. Wild Eskimos; Mackenzie Vicariate Has Them According to The Shield, the o gan of the Catholic Students' Mis- sion Crusade, there are three class- es of Eskimos,the Western or Al- askan Eskimos, who through con- tact with whalers and occasional travellers, have become quite civil- ized. These Eskimos are under the care of the Jesuit Fathers. Then there are the Eastern Eskimos, who are found in northern Kee- watin and in Franklin territory north of Hudson Bay. These Es kimos are partially civilized and are under the care of the famous Bishop Turquetil, O.M.I., and his Oblate Fathers. Between the se two groups are the Eskimos of the Mackenzie vicariate, -- wild, primi- tive folk, who, far removed fro.m the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, knew no white man until years later when they met their eastern and western brethren. These are the people who comprise the flock of Bishop Fallaize. All the Family Can" Help; Enroll Them in a "Family Membership" Every member of your family can help the missionaries, if you enroll them in a Special or Family membership. You may enroll your- self and nine others and this mem- bership includes living and de- ceasedmembers of your family. A prayer from each member will go far toward bringing Christ's bless- ing on the work of the mission- aries. There is hardly a mission country that is not threatened by wars or in the midst of wars. Government grants have been elim- inated by many authorities and the missionaries have had to fight i hard for their very existence. Your six dollars for a Family member- ship for one year will help them to withstand the uncertain condi- tions that now face them. Treasure In Heaven What independence and security a bank deposit or an insurance policy give to a provident man or woman, an indulgenced prayer arid good work gives to the Christian. An indulgence decreases or can- cels the temporal punishment due to sin. Consequently, the Christian can increase his share of merit in heaxen. Our Lord did not forget to rec- ommend this very sensible provi- sion when he said: "Build up for :ourselves a treasure in heaven." The Church endows the good xork of membership in the Society for the Propagation of the Faith with the following indulgences: 1. Plenary indulgences. 2. Partial indulgences. 3. Special benefits. Ask your Diocesan Director to tell you when you may gain these indulgences. --Fisherman. Maryknoll Sisters Stay at Sancian Ossining, N. Y.--The two MaD'- knoll Sisters reported in the Amer- ican press as having been removed from Sancian Island, 120 miles southwest of Hongkong, upon the recent landing of Japanese mili- tary forces, are still at their post on the island, conducting their dis- pensary daily. Although in vie,*" of the dangers an attempt ,*'as made by Maryknoll priests to persuade them to leave, they begged so earnestly to be al- lowed to remain that the effort ,*-as abandoned. The two sisters are Sister Monica Marie Boyle of: Minersville, Me., and Sister Can- dida Marie of Hongkong. Teachers Discuss Homework Load Chicago.--rays and means of "staggering" the homework load of students in Jesuit high schools of the Missouri, Chicago and New Or- leans provinces were discussed at the annual meeting of principals on educational problems, at Loy- ola university Monday and Tues- day. Home study assignments will no longer be left to the discretion of individual teachers, according to the Rev. Allan P. Farrell, S.J., su- pervisor of studies in the Chicago province. "Two-hour home,york assign- ments will be made with major assignments in principal branches of study staggered to a specific day each week," he said. "In this way, no student will be given more homework than he can handle, and each student will be given satis- factory preparation."

Michigan Avenue, Chicago, I!!. ally supposed to be a very flip, a brilliantly cynical---or at least a cynical--summing-up of the year. The plans for the column still cir- cle in my head, and yet I cannot write it. Tor I have just this mo- ment put down a book which is at once the finest book I have read this year and the finest experience I have had. The book is Bernanos's "The Diary of a Country Priest," trans- lated from the Trench by Pamela Morris and published by The Mac- millan Company. One reads very few things that make him want to go around ring- ing-doorbells, urging casual pas- sersby to read this or that. New- man's "Apologia pro Vita Sun" and Henry Adams' "Education of Henry Adams" were books like that, but there aren't very many more that I have read. And now there is this --the Diary. It's a book that makes me want to tear up everything I have ever written and everything I have ever lived. It's a book that makes me want to start with a clean sheet to begin anew on a course that won't be quite so inkspotted. Yes. The Diary is quite as powerful as that, to me at least. What can one say of it? The Diary is the slow-rolling story of a young, saint-like priest, who takes care of his little parish, saves a soul in your very presence, and finally dies. That's all there is to it. At the very beginning of the book you realize that he is suffer- ing from great pain, and somehow 0u wait for him to die. Death is as inevitable in this story as in the Greek tragedies. But unless rou are rarely privileged, unless you have been allowed to know-- really know--a saint, the little priest is a--I can't find quite the right word for it--a companion whom you would like to make a friend. The words are so trite as I put them there. What I am try- ing to say is that the little priest respires such great admiration, awakes such emotions higher than pity an,d closely akin to love, that you ,*ant to ask him if you can't Jl am saying this all very bad- ly, and I know it. It is unfortun- ate that our truly deep emotions are so fearfully cluttered by words we have prostituted by using them in unworthy situations. Friend- ship -- humble -- great -- saintlike. Those are words which fall short here because they have been used so largely and so glibly in a hun- dred other situations. Besides the little priest, there is M. le Cure de Torcy, whose ob- servations on life and the poor and the spiritual life spring from the sort of intelligence one would like to have. His words have an earthiness that reveal facts of the Christian religion we had forgot existed, and i some cases never knew existed. With him a friend- ship is possible, though you feel unworthy of that friendship. You know that his words and his living could profoundly influence you, and would influence you for the better. All of which falls miserably short of giving--eveu the slightest --indication of what this book is Not that the book is perfect. At times it is sentimental; at times the grammar drives a copyreader mad. But like the slight nervous mannerisms of those we love, such things are not at all important in this book. Vfhat is important is that "The Diary of a Country Priest" is a tremendous exper- ience. And if these words, how- ever faltering, can make you want to read the book, I shall feel that 1937 was not entirely spent in vain. ..
