Mrs. Korioth hails from Sher- man, Tax., where her family for years has been among the leaders Market • BLAISDELL STREET MEAT MARKEr KENNETH J KLNG, Propfietoe Wholesale and Retail Meats Phane Main 553 1351 Bloisdell St. ABRAMS THE PHOTOGRAPHER FOR PARTICULAR PEOPLE 208 N. hurch St. Fores. 6673 PIGGLY WIGGLY SUPER MARKETS ComDlete FOOD Centers Free Parking Lots For the Convenience at Out Customers 315 N.

In 1942, she entered NCCS work as a club director and now is supervisor of the reg'ion which covers Texas, New Mexico and Louisiana• The region has operated as many as 22 clubs for industrial workers and servicemen from Las Vegas to New Orleans. She is here in the Nation's Capital for the meeting of the NCCS ex- ecutive staff and regional super- visors. Through the NCCS operations, Mrs. Korioth related, it was pos- sible to bring the Church into sections of the South. where it never before had been known, to I serve not only men and women in uniform, but to folks employed in war industries. "Much of the prejudice that ex- isted in some sections of the South has gone with the war," Mrs. Korioth continued• "The work which we started will not be lost either, for Archbishops Robert E. Lucey (of San Antonio) and Jo- seph F. Rummel (of New Orleans) have been acquainted with it and will carry it on. The NCCS work has aroused the Catholic Deolle of the South to a new line of thought and " don't believe it ever will be said again that Catholic women bake the cakes but don't share the committees when it comes to Church ctivities." Mrs. Korioth recalled a talk she had with one Catholic woman who resides in 1) community where there were few" Catholics among some 25,000 residents. "She told me," Mrs. Korioth re- lated, "that before the NCCS op- erations clarified many of the prob- lems which had perplexed her neighbors, she felt like she was destined to be a wall flower for life. She said that she grew tired of being a virtual minority and became, somewhat abashed when- ever her religion came un for dis- cussion among her neighbors. But Diocesan Sports Arena BY By P. It. Cremer St. Thomas turned the nearest trick in the diocese last week, the Purple and White surprising a strong St. Bade outfit with a red hot attack that sent the Bedans iback to Peru with a 41-35 plaster- ing. It was St. Thomas all the way with Don Leber leading the Rock- fordites to a 26-21 halftime margin that carried them on to the win. Marmion smacked Morgan Park's cadets to the tune of 48-35, and then racked-up a 57-39 win over York of Elmhurst, of the strong Chicago Suburban League. Com- munity had an easy time with St. Mary's iVIoline, and the Comets maintained a comfortable ten point lead throughout the contest. Aquin played a listless game against St. Columbkille, and the Co-dukes of Dubuque broke a half time tie to col) the fracas• St. Mary's, Wood- stock was no match for Richnmnd and the visitors won handily by 40-26. Competition this week for dio- cesan teams is rough, tough and ready . . . St. Edward bumps into Mooseheart on the Moose floor Friday night, and Aquin entertains i St. Mar tz's, DesPlaines . . .

Sunday afternoon the improved Purple and White of St. Thomas will invade the Aurora camp and a Thomist upset win would be enough to call the season successful . Marmion holds a win over the Rockfordites, but the Tommies have come a long way since that Coliseum defeat . . .
