I 'I IDAY APRIL 21, 1961 THE SOCIETY FOR THE PROPAGATION OF THE FAITH--MEMBERSHIP SUNDAY--SUNDAY, APRIL 23 Over three hundred missionary societies today work in the Mission fields under the Pontifical Con- gregation of the Propagation of the Faith. Being a Pontifical Congregation it cannot favor any one Society over another, an), more than a father of a family may clothe and feed one child and ignore another. A beautiful magic attaches itself to that word 'PONTIFICAL"; it means belonging to the Pontiff, the Holy Father, the Vicar of Christ. The Pontifical Congregation of the Propagation of the Faith has at heart the universal interests of the Missions; in the strict sense of the word, it is Catholic, which means "UNIVERSAL." t Even though the national average is low. those who do give alms to the Holy Father do it in a tpirit of sacrifice not because Asia needs help, but because the givers need grace; not because the pagans are sinners, but because they want to make up for their sins. They understand better the mean- ing of the Christian life, namely that only by dying our selfishness do we live to Christ The Pontifical Society for the Propagation of the Faith has also deepened the missionary con- sciousness of the American people by its universal picture of the Missions. There is not a missionary society or congregation or order that can say that its particular alms have decreased, because the Holy Father asked" that he be first and principally aided. Each has benefitted because the prestige of the Holy Father as the head of all mission activities has been enhanced. As the man who cares for the health of his head and his whole body never has to worry about the health of a finger, or a leg, or an arm; so too, the Pontifical Society for the Prop- agation of the Faith in fostering love of the Holy Father and the Mystical Body, the Church, has aided the spirtual health of every missionary or- ganization, in the world. He who aids all loves all. There is no better way to help the Holy Father to take care of his mission family than to enroll yourself, a relative or friend in the Pontifical Society for the Propagation of the Faith. This is |lso a magnificent spiritual investment. Msgr. Green, Director The Society for the Propagation of the Faith 507 Avenue B Sterling, Illinois Dear Msgr. Green: I didn't get a membership en- velope but I would like: Individual Annual Memberships @ $1.00 each. Family Annual Memberships @ $6.00 each. Individual Perpetual Memberships @ $50.00 each. Family Perpetual Memberships @ $100.00 each. t6 make a sacrifice of $ for the Missions.

(There are some decisions a bustling, trivial Nineteenth Century." The local county cam- Chief Executive simply does not delegate, especially after missioners were defeated in their attempt to destroy some of fending off hamsters, and salamanders, too.) But the execu- tive mansion now has its first curator, a young lady who will make a list of all the items of interest therein. These items increase daily. Mr. Kennedy's old wooden North Carolina porch rocker has been moved into his office after being dress- ed up on Mrs. Kennedy's orders in mahogany stain, loam rubber and oatmeal-color monk's cloth. THIS HAS TOUCHED OFF a big rocking-chair boom, which may cut heavily into the Civil War Centennial" boom now going on, with the public clamoring for rocking chairs in assorted styles ranging from the $5 or $10 original North Carolina model to a $150 modern Danish. And as spring rocks confidently into the land, what is the State of the Union? THERE DON'T SEEM TO BE any citizens, languishing in New Jersey jails these days for failing to return their library books. The Florida jails must be emptied by now of college studerrts who rioted on the beaches, in a Lynchburg jail four Negroes, two of them clergymen, are serv- ing out 60-day sentences tar sitting at a durgstore counter, and another group of theological stu- dents, also serving 60 days for drugstore sit- ting, had to go on a hunger strike because the jailer wouldn't let them have their textbooks in jail The seven high executives of gianl U. S. electrical equipment companies have finished their 30-day sentences near Philadelphia for their part in a price-fixing scheme involving billion-dollar sales. THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT IS taking a look into pos- sible price-fixing among milk companies and bread companies, too. Collusion among diaper-service companies has come to light. The Federal Trade Commission has pointed out that no matter what you call it. an aspirin is an aspirin, and they all relieve pain with the same speed. Aspirin is now exploding ~our times taster than ~he U. S. population. Two big chemical companies dominate the aspirin market which is producing 22 million pounds of bulk aspirin annually. Another big chemical company has a big headache in store for the Internal Revenue Service with an instant beer it has developed. Chemists have found out how to make it, now the government has to figure out how to tax it. THE COMMUNICATIONS GIANTS -- American Telephone and Telegraph. RCA. General Electric and others -- are still competing in one area at least: for filling outer space with communications satellites to carry TV programs, phone calls and electronic data transmission. A.T.&T. has the inside orbit (all it needs is a government launching vehicle to shoot the works), and the pmce o its stock just hit an all-time high. A U. S. oceanographic expedition has hit an all-time low, bor- ing through the bottom of the sea off California for samples of the earth's core. COMMUNICATIONS HAVE BEEN DEALT ~ blow by that fully-automated post office in Providence which chews up the mail instead of Sorting it. Informed sources believe it may have the woods in order to provide easier public access to a beach which conducted Red Cross water safety courses. WHEN SPRING CAME TO Walden Pond, Thoreau wrote: "As every season seems best to us in its turn, so the coming in of spring is like the creation of Cosmos out of Chaos and the realization of the Golden Age." He cried, "Simplify, sim-i plify!" in horror io a nation that lived "too fast" with its rail- roads and exports and post offices and newspapers and its' people riding "thirty miles an hour." IT SEEMS RATHER UNLIKELY that even spring in all its glory would console Thoreau today. Belt we shall have to make the best of it. At least the winter is over and gone, and 'the squeak of the rocker is heard in the land. (Copyright, 1961 The Catholic Reporter) Guide for News Items Sent to the Observer The following suggestions are to help publicity chairmen and anyone interested, in handling news items and insuring their publication in the Ob- server.

VINCENT'S JOTTINGS The sound of music was much in evidence t h i s past week as 700 children f r o m schools in the Freeport Dean- ery assembled at Aquin high school for the Annual Music festival. Our boys' choir chant- ed the proper of the Mass and a Rythm Band, made up of our first and second graders cli- maxed the afternoon program with a skillful rendition of "Three Blind Mice." This same group will perform at the Cath- olic Music Educators conven- tion in Milwaukee on May llth. Father Ambre's Name Day gave the 3rd and 4th grade children an opportunity to dem- onstrate t h c i r musical skill. Sister Cordula directed the pro- gram. Six of our Sisters spent last week at St. Anthony hospital, Chicago, making their annual Retreat.
