Prelate To Come Here At Invitation Of NCWC Chairman BY MAX JORDAN Berlin, Jan. 20.--(NC, Radio)- The United States will have an opportunity for a glimpse at the man who fought one of the most coura'geous battles against nazism right here in the German capital, next month when His Eminence Conrad Cardinal van Preysing, Bishop of Berlin, will visit that country for at least a month as the guest of the United States Hierarchy. The Cardinal will make the trip by plane and will be accompanied by his secretary. The U. S. State Department and Army Officials al- ready have granted the necessary clearance for his visit. The invitation on behalf of the U. S. Hierarchy was extended through Archbishop John T. Me- Nicholas, O.P., of Cincinnati, in his capacity as Chairman of the Administrative Board of the Na- -Rochelle Hector Caron HEATING HOME APPLIANCES Rochelle IlL Savanna Funeral Dirctor R. G.

It was conveye4 to the Card- nal through Bishop Aloisius J. Muench of Fargo, who now is in Germany acting in a liaison ca- pacity between the Church and the U. S. occupation authorities. Cardinal van Preysing during his stay in the United States, it was disclosed here, anticipates visits to the See cities of the four U. S. Cardinals--Their Eminences Dennis Cardinal Dougherty, Arch- bishop of Philadelphia; Edward Cardinal Mooney, Archbishop of Detroit; Samuel Cardinal Stritch, Archbishop of Chicago, and Fran- cis Cardinal Spellman, Archbishop' of New York. The German Cardinal also plans to visit His Excellency Archbishop Amleto Giovanni Cicognani, Apos- tolic Delegate to the nited States, in Washington, and, if time permits, hopes to visit Arch. bishops Joseph F. Rummel of New Orleans, and John J. Mitty, of Sat Francisco. Cardinal van Preysing has disclosed that he expects to be back in Berlin by Laetare Sun- day, March 16. The Cardinal, who holds the title of Count, gained world-wide renown for his fight against naz- ism, which he undertook when the Hitler forces were on their way to power in Germany. In 1937, right in the capital of nazism, he de- clared that faithful Catholics in Germany were like out, laws in their own country because of the un-Christian ideologies fostered by :the nazis. Perhapg his best remembered attack against the nhzis came in 1943, when he issued a pastoral denouncing the nazi doctrines of racism, State totalitarianism and eradication of rights of the indi- vidual. Although the United States was at war with Germany at the l time, a copy of the pastoral was I secured and was read in the U. S. Senate by James M. Mead, then Senator from New York. It was hailed throughout the world as one of the most courageous and forth- right documents of the time.

While the stork was busy sending a baby boy, the Bulldogs were out getting an approprihte gift for "junior" in the form of a twin vic- tory at the expense of Durand. After feeling out the Durand de- fense, the Bulldogs, who'have been minus some of their ferocity in past games, turned on the heat so well that by the half the game was )ractically decided. The reserves played most of the second half and turned in a good game with the final outcome a. 44-31 win. Earlier in the week Aquin played one of the best games of the current season although they were defeat- ed by Harlem of Rockford 37-34. The Rockford boys were given quite a scare as Aquin, playing in the underdog role, almost upset them. Community had a. really thrilling game up their sleeve when they met Prophetstown and produced a 38-36 "thriller.', Stark led the Comets but every man on the Community squad contributed to the point total. Marmion's cadets ran into a I basket barrage last week and were humbled by a strong Belvidere squad, 63-42. Belvidere, who plays an exceptional game on their home floor, scored 26 points in the third frame, to ice the contest. The Ca- dets came right back ith ven- geance a night later and nosed out Wheaton in a thrilling overtime tilt, 51-47. After letting a four point half-time advantage slip, they bettered Wheatons effort in the overtime by three points to capture the game. St. Edward's cagers were also the victims of a display of hot shooters, jtropping a 44-22 decision t: Zion-Benton. The Zion hays, paced by Eagb who played at the pivot spot, were just too much for a fighting,abut outclassed Edward five. The heartbreaker was deliv- ered by Elmhurst when Immacu- late Conception High knocked St. Edward out of first place,in the Northeast Catholic conference by defeating thein 45-43. Games this week as follows: Friday, January 24 Marmion vs Kirldand at Aurora St. Edward's vs Zion-Benton at Elgin Aquin vs Belvidere at Freeport Community at Morrison Saturday, January 25 St. Thomas at Marmion Tuesday, January 28 St. Thomas vs Monroe Center at Rockford Community at Milledgeville In parochial school loop play at Aurora, Holy Angel maintained their standing on top of the heap with a 55-51 win over St. Nicho- las. An upset was turned in by St. Michael's, who downed Sacred Heart, 29-25 and thus gained a third place tie with Sacred Heart, both teams having a 3-2 record. At Freeport St. Vincent's down- ed St. John's of Savanna and St. Joseph's set back St. Thomas. In the other games, the St. Vincent "lights" were beaten by Center, and St. Mary's lost to St. Jo- seph's of Elgin. Woodstock's K. of. C. team were never threatened as they put the finger on DeKalb, 37-20. The Knights turned in a good ame and just coasted home to an easy victory. The boys then continued their winning ways, with a 63-45 conquest of Grayslake. This department received letter from the Sports Editor of the Rockford Register-Republic which stated that a northern Illi- nois AAU basketball tournament will be held Feb. 12, 13, 15 and 16 at the Rockford Armory for, the benefit of the Shrine Crippled Children's Home fund and the Northern Illinois Catholic Chil- dren's Welfare fund. William K. Todd of the Register- Republic has been named chair- man.
