The student chosen was rated on four traits: loyalty, service, dependa-! bility, and patriotism. This pro- ject is sponsored by the Daughters of the American Revolution. Later a drawing will be made and one student from each state will go to Washington, D. C., as the guest of the Daughters of the American Revolution. Describe Contests Some of the members of the Com- mercial club, who have experienced the thrills of a district and sec- tional commercial contest, de- scribed the events to the other members. They then demonstrat- ed their own skill in shorthand and typing. Thomas Slattery, president, pre- sided at the business meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 20, and introduced the speakers. Odile Rolinger spoke of the shorthand and bookkeeping events; John Hunt described the typing I events; and Florence Grillot ex- plained the state contest. Four members, John Hunt, Florence Gril- lot, Odile Rolinger, and Dorothy Goethe, then typed for three min- utes. Odile Rolinger and Margery Carroll wrote shm'thand and tran- scribed it on the typewriter for five minutes. The juniors were impressed with the technique exhibited by the sen- iors. A great deal of enthusiasm was stimulated by the speeches and demonstrations. Refreshments were served by Odile Rolinger, Dorothy Goethe John Hunt, and Mary Slattery. In the last two basketball game., of the season, the scores were: Durand 28, Aquin 26; Aquin 30, St. Thomas 21. Eileen Cremer is wearing the honor pin in junior typing this week.

But !where was that parade going? !Upon further investigation we found that a number of girls were going to the office to display their embroidery work to Sister Engle- berta. They were rewarded with/a nice prize  for their splendid ef- forts. Eva Jane Baliard was de- clared the champion . . . Tuesday found everyone back in school, but mystery pervaded the atmosphere around the third and fourth grade classroom. Our curiosity was satis- fied Wednesday afternoon when we heard them )-ell "surprise" to the first and second graders who were to be their guests at a Valentine party. We quote Johnny Gannon, who said, "Gee, we sure had some swell time ! "--and that tells you the whole story in a nutshell . . . Did we get any Valentines?--Vee surely did. The one that took our eye most was a seventy-five pound one from the MorSels club in Woodstock. The Sisters and chil- dren of St. Vincent's give their sin- cere appreciation and thanks to the kind members of the Mariola club. Those delicious cookies certain- ly met a hearty welcome from us .. But still we hear some laughter and fun. Leaving our ears to be our guides we soon found ourselves in the midst of the most delightful party . . . There sat Father at the head of the table cutting a de- licious cake while all the kinder- garten children were filling hungry tummies as they waited. That group of happy smiling faces made a pic- ture worth any artist's time . . . Now. where in the world do those seventh and eighth grade girls go every night after school?--Sh-hh. don't broadcast it yet, but the girls have organized a basketbaU team with Miss Teresa Lamm co%ching. Friday, the news spread for the girls had scheduled a 'game with St. Joseph's team. St. Joseph's girls were victorious. Friday evening the high school girls played the Aquin team and lost. However we are not disheartened. The girls need more practice---that's all and we think they'll get it for there's a constant squabble between the girls and boys about the use of the gym . . . Mmmmm, what is that delicious aroma? It makes one hungry as a bear. We sniffed our way around and soon landed in front of the Domestic Science classroom. We were told to have patience and we would get a sample. True to their word, we each enjoyed a generous piece of pie Saturday noon. It was a result of the work of the Domes- tic Science class. If they keep it up they'll be pretty good cooks some day . . . Saturday night we slipped into the seventh and 'eighth grade classroom and saw _ the visual education picture.

THE" OBSERVER February 22, 1940 Vatican City Broadcasts OnU.S.Ntorals Speaker Answers American Business Monthly Editorial New York.--An editorial pub- lished in the American Business Monthly concerned with the asser- tion that the Christian churches in America had failed to equip them- selves for the task of preaching absolute values and assuming lead- ership in bringing the people of this country to acceptance of those values was the subject of a special broadcast to the United States over short-wave from the Vatican radio station HVJ. These short-wave broadcasts to the United States from Vatican City are heard on Thursday and Sunday at 8:30 p. m., eastern standard time. Protectress of Values "Had our editorial writer had ac- cess to these two Papal docu- ments," the Vatican speaker said, "he might have added some Perti- nent reflections on the true and absolute values to offset certain strictures and the asserted failure of the church to see herself in the present crisis. "The Catholic church, which we believe to be the one true Church of Christ, has been and continues inexorably to be the single author- ized teacher and protectress of those absolute values which suc- ceeding crises in the world serve only to throw into sharper relief. Every business problem is a moral problem, said Leo XIII 50 years ago, and Pins XI reiterated this fundamental religious truth a doz- en times before our present reign- ing Pontiff made it the very sub- stance of his first solemn procla- mation to the family of nations. "But business, especially in its pseudo-literal American dress, has been notoriously suspicious of and slow to accept the intru- sion of the church and its abso- lute values of justice and chari- ty into a field where economists and salesmen believed them- selves sovereign lords and mas- ters. "Likewise in the field of family life/and education, the leadership  tb he Church has not pi'operly "l. It has been resented. When i  and priest insisted on the in- escapable and inexorable claims of the law of God and of nature touching birth control, they were treated summarily as though they were the enemies of human prog- ress. When we cried from the housetops that a government school was no school at all, we were again called the public ene- mies of our untouchable public schools. Leadership Offered "No, the Church has persist- ently offered us both the doc- trine and the leadership our country needed to be saved-- saved from itself as from its enemies without, That is her blessed business in this world. We have simply been too busy with relative values to heed her outside the fold of our twenty millions of Catholics, who find their peace and security and their pledge of salvation in this world and the next in heeding her." Hanover Parish -Elects Officers Hanover.--At a recent meeting of the members of St. Ann's so- ciety of St. John's church, the fol- lowing officers for the ensuing year were elected: Mrs. Nicholas Rietz, president; Mrs. Josephine Baum- gartner, vice president, and Mrs. Wm. Sounders, secretary-treasurer. The retiring officers are Mrs. Earl Ballien. president;, Mrs. Reyn- old Sandman. vice president, and Miss Helen ,Miller, secretary-treas- urer. Fr. Coakley Talks At St. Catherine's Freeport.--The Rev. Edward C. Coakley, assistant pastor of St. Peter's church, Rockford, will be the speaker at the Lenten devo- tions in St. Catherine's church next Sunday evening at 7:30 o'clock. The devotions consist of the ros- ary, sermon and Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament. Col. Callahan Called Loss to Society Louisville, Ky.--In the death of Col. Patrick H. Callahan, distin- guished Catholic layman of this city, society has "lost a valuable and valiant member, for the quality of his citizenship was not merely negative, eschewing evil" and "he was ardent in any cause which appealed to his sense of right," says an editorial in the Louisville Cour- ier-Journal. The daily paper here declares that "had P. H. Callahan the choice of his own epitaph, he probably could have asked no words more gratifying to his own soul--certain- ly none more appropriate -- than these: 'Write me down as lone who loved his fellowmen.' " "Therein is to be found the vital spirit of his attitude as an em- ployer in industrial relations," the editorial continues, "as a Catholic in inter-denominational relations, as a citizen of the world in in- ternational relations. "Peace for the sake of peace-- between capital and labor, between adherents of different creeds, be- tween peoples of different nations --was not the limited objective of all the activities in which he en- gaged. He joined with others of like mind in various groups to pro- mote the understandings that be- gets goodwill and confidence and a mutuality of interest in the com- mon welfare." ROBBED OF ,MORAL VALUES Vatican City--Humanlty has fal- len into the hands of "thieves who are called pride, unbelief, ambi- tion, violence, disloyalty and hat- red" and has been robbed of its highest moral values--faith in God, brotherhood, reciprocal trust and peace--His Holiness Pope Pius XII declared in an address delivered to the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, Of In teres t to Women Lima Beans Perfect Meat Substitute Use lima beans fr Lent. They are the perfect meat substitute. A list of their food values would fill a column and a half and to print all the tasty recipes for their use would necessitate a "bean edition." Anyway a quick glance shows it is tops in alkaline-reaction foods that are needed to offset acidity. It contains more calcium than lean beef or eggs; more phosphorus than milk or lean beef; more sul- phur than milk or potatoes; and more iron than any of these other foods. It's an excellent source oil those minerals so necessary to per- fect health. A few new lima recipes for 1940: Baked Limas with Marshmallows Three cups cooked dried limas; one-half teaspoon salt; one and one- half tablespoons butter; three ta- blespoons brown sugar; one-fourth cup hot water; three to six marsh- mallows.

Msgr. Thomas Pothacam- ury, pastor of St. Andrew's church, Mad- ras. and for two decades editor of The New Leader. au outstanding Catholic weekly of India. In this Monsignor Thomas. who has been isiting this coun- try, reviews the growth of the Church in recent times and declares the pros- pects for the future to be distinctly hopeful. BY MSGR THOMAS POTHACAMURY India, to which considerable at- tention has been drawn in the United States owing to recent po- litical developments, is a vast country with a variety of physical features, climates, seasons, prod- ucts, races and religions and lan- guages and customs. Though only about two-thirds of the size of the United States, with an area of 1,- S00,000 square miles, within its boundaries dwell about 370,000,000 Protestants of various denomina- tions and the remainder adherents of minor religions. More than 70 per cent of the Catholic population of India is to be found in the most Christian province of the east, Madras or southern India, which comprises one-twelfth of the total area of the country but embraces one-seventh of the population. The Indian states of Travancore and Cochin in the province of Madras have 1,- 200,000 Catholics. Few Catholics In North Nine dioceses of northern India with a population of 175,000,000 nearly equal to that of all of Africa, have but 150,000 Catholics. There are immense stretches of territory still with no trace of Christianity. In many parts of the country, the number of Christians, whether Catholics or Protestants is less than 50 per 10,000 of the general population. Vast areas of the country are still untouched. There are six dis- tricts in Bengal with an aggregate population of 8,000,000 with less than one Christian for every 2,000 of population. There are more than 100,000,000 people who have no idea of Christianity whatsoever and have not heard of the Gospel mess- age, not to speak of millions of Mohammedans among whom vir- tually no organized attemlt has been made to present the light of Christian truth. According to long-standing tra- dition supported by contemporary evidence, Christianity was intro- duced into India by St. Thomas the Apostle. Most scholars, in- cluding Protestants, are now: agreed that the historical evidence of the story of St. Thomas' aposto- i late in Malabar, southwest coast of India, is unquestionable. Hel preached the Gospel, established Christian communities, founded churches and ordained priests, i Then he went over to the east coast, made some converts, was martyred on a hill traditionally known as St. Thomas' Mount and wa buried in Mylapore, a suburb of Madras. Colonies Disappeared In course of time, the small Catholic colonies in Mylapore and Ceylon disappeared but through all vicissitudes of history the Catholic community of Malabar was held to- gether with its Syrian liturgy and ceremonial. The prelates who gov- i erned them were sent from Persia or from Antioch snd they were iso- lated from the center of Christian unity. They lacked spiritual vigor and missionary zeal and the faith seemed bottled up in a corner of India and showed no signs of ex- pansion. Modern missionery enterprise may be said to date from the ar- rival of the Portuguese early in the sixteenth century and that great missioner and glorious apostle of tho east, St. Francis Xavier. When Vasco de Gama founded the Cape of Good Hope and landed in Calicut, there were some 20,000 Catholic families in 60 towns and villages. Fraciscans and Dominicans came into the country and estab- lished missions and the Jesuits and Augustinians followed in their Th Maharaja of. Jaipur pays a visit to the orphanage of St. Angola in the Diocese of Ajmer, India, and is much impressed by the work done there by the Sisters of St. Mary's of the Angels, of Angers, France. wake. St. Francis Xavier landed in Goa in 1542 and evangelized many parts of the country during his brief career. In the course of a single month in Malabar he bap- tized 10,000 persons. In the year 1600 the number of Catholics in India was estimated at 375,000. Mission In Interior Christianity had until now gain- ed a strong footing on "only the Indian seaboard. Early in the sev- enteenth century a new mission was started in the interior of the country. In 1606, the famous Rob- ert de Nobili, a nephew of Cardi- nal Bellarmine, started a new mis. sion in Madura, a stronghold of Hinduism. De Nobili and his Italian and French confreres preferred to In- dianize themsel,'es and permit their neophytes to keep their so- cial customs as long as they were not opposed to any essential teach- ing of the Chrtian faith. The results were striking. Many groups of high caste people em- braced the Christian faith. At the close of the-seventeenth century the number of Catholics was 800,000 throughout the coun- try. In the middle of the eigh- teenth century Catholics numbered barely 1,100,000. Then followed a period of decline owing to vari- ous causes, such as the suppres- sion of the Society of Jesus, the advent of the Protestants into the mission field, the struggle for su- premacy among the Portuguese, the Dutch, the Danes, the French and the English, the persecution of Christians by Mohammedan rul- ers and the conflict between the Padroado (Portugalese patronage) and the Propaganda. Mssionary activity ceased and there was stagnation and utter ruin in some parts. In 1831, all the Portuguese Sees were without bishops. Fully aware of the sad state of affairs, Pope Gregory XVI erected five vicariates apostolic in 1832 and twelve more were added by Pope Pius IX between 1850 and 1870. When Pope Leo XIII estab- lished the hierarchy in 1886, there were 1,600,000 Catholics and 29 in- dependent mission units. Now, af- ter five decades, the number of Catholics has increased by 150 per cent. The latest figures estimate the Catholic population at 4,300.- 000, and the dioceses and vicari- ates or prefectures apostolic num- ber 64. The clergy has increased from 2,110 to 4,600, of whom 3,000 are Indians. including 2,600 dio- cesan priests. The growth in the number of re- ables, and the tribal population. The prospects for the future are dsitinctiy hopeful in spite of many formidable obstacles arising from a growing sense of nationalism with its opposition to missionary propaganda and Christianity.

An- other striking feature is the estab- ]iment of dioceses manned by dio- cesan priests and Indian bishops. There are now 14 Indian bishops. three of them being converts from the Jacobite schismatics ef Mala- bar. The policy of dividing large and unwieldy dioceses into smaller and more managable units, for which the late Pope Pius XI was well known and which was csrried into effect by the Most Ray. Edward Mooney, now archbishop of De- troit, as apostolic delegate to In- dia (1926 to 1931), has proved most effective for a more rapid propaga- tion of the Gospel. The most re- markable advance was made during the last five decades. In Chota Nagpur, diocese of Ranchi, northern India, the Bel- gian Jesuits started a mass move- ment anmng the aborigines. In 1885, there were 2,000 converts; in 1900 they numbered 51,000; now there is a flourishing Catholic community of more than 260,000, besides many thousands of cate- chumens.
