News Section--Page 2A THE OBSERVER EDITION OF OUR SUN'DAY VISITOR Sunday, March 26, 1950 i iarding C, ollec President Outlines ,r Amer,can Heritage' For Cadets Aurora--"Our American Heri- tage" was the object of the talk given by Doctor George S. Benson, president of Harding College, Searcy, Arkansas. In straight for- ward and simple words, Doctor Benson spoke of the basic things that make our American way of life. He said, "That fundamental- ly, our heritage is the deep relig- ious convictions that underlie our American life and our freedoms-- this is the foundation for our A mericean Heritage. "It consists of four freedoms. The freedom to dream--to dream dreams of achievement and to pur- sue them freely." Here he illus- trated his meaning by recalling the story and work of Thomas Edison, whose dreams are even now giving rise to new inventions and industries in many fields. "The second heritage is that of eempetition. If Henry Ford were ~,ot given competition to his T Model, we might be still riding in the T Models. Look at the postal service that is a monopoly. They still walk just as they did in the hst century. Why even the news imys use bicycles or scooters. "Our third basic heritage is the screening that takes place for efficiency in our way of life. The know-how is developed from man- agement down and those with demonstrated ability gain the top. It is the efficiency of our produc- tion which during the war pro- duced more than twice as many arms as the rest of the world that played the important role of win- ning the war. "The fourth heritage is the right to the possessio~ of tools of pro- duction--the capitalistic form of production. It takes thousands of dollars in every industry invested in tools and plants to make just one job. 'Wanted two engineers-- bring your own locomotive' illus- trates my meaning." "The forces of communism want to destroy this heritage--the free- dom of labor, the freedom of man- agement, the freedom of property ownership, the freedom of compe- tition and the freedom of relig- ions." At this point, Dr. Benson stated --"I must congratulate your lead- ers, the Catholic Church for the vigorous fight they give to Com- munism. I believe that if we had another depression or another : crisis, there are men who would be elected to Congress or even to the Presidency of the United States be- cause they would promise jobs, no worries about sickness, no worries about hunger or profits, or wages, etc. "We must realize the fury of the cold'war in which we are engaged right now, that we may fully fight for and protect this our American Heritage of real freedoms." Rev. Russell Guccione To Address Freeport Catholic Women's League Freeport--The regular monthly meeting of the Catholic Woman's league, Freeport, 'is scheduled for 8 p.m. Tuesday, March 28, in Knights o~,Columbus hall. A busi- ness sessmn will precede the pro- gram. Mrs. John McKinstra, program chairman, has announced that the Roy. Russell Guccione, pastor of St. Michael's church, Galena, will be guest speaker. Father Guccione has chosen for his subject, "Par- ents--the Paramount Teachers of Education." When announcing his topic Father Guccione stated he felt the subject most timely. He added, "It should prove interesting to our people in a time when every effort is being made by opposing forces to destroy the influence of the home on the child:" The speaker received his early education in Freeport His mother, Mrs. Anna Guccione, St Thomas parish, and a brother, Anthony, St. Joseph's parish, reside in Freeport Nurses Copped At St. Joseph Hospital; Fr.

It is actu- ally a substitute for a talk on the Christopher movement because Father James. Keller's program is such a busy one that his many invitations for a talk can be filled in no other way. The simple, practical objective of the film is merely this: first, to alert people in all walks of life to the fact that the great fundamental truth of belief in God is slowly but surely disappearing not only from the American scene but over .4MOST ORDINARY AWD ~ LIFE.
