To awaken Catholic women to a sense of their apostolic mis- sion under the direction of their bishop. 2. To help modern woman to qualify for her responsibility as an apostle ol Christ. 3. To furnish a means of fed- erating all Catholic women's groups into a cohesive unity. The National Council is a fed- eration of societies and its pur- pose is to promote teamwork among its member organiza- tions. It tries to co-ordinate and improve the work of the individ- ual groups, but in no way to di- rect them or replace them. Its member groups are the diocesan councils throughout the United States. The Rockford dio- cesan council is divided into six deaneries with each including'all of the Catholic women's groups throughout its area. The biennial conventions, and the institutes held in the inter- vening years, attract hundreds of women from throughout the diocese.

Oh yeah, Well, not this col- umnist. Most fields covered by columnists are gold mines of ideas -- but not the "Home Sweet Home" field. Who can write a column about the one- day flu? Burned peas? Battle- scarred dogs? Lint balls? It's different with other col- umnists, as I shall prove. Take Bishop Topel, whose "Your Bishop and You" is a very fine, very well-read col- umn. As spiritual shepherd of his flock, he can draw on the fan t of wisdom that is the Church. No matter how deeply John W. Barrett O.D. OPTOMETRIST 7 EAST STEPHENSON ST.

The Bishop's col- umn-ing p:oblems stern not from lack of ideas -- but time. Bish- ops are busy! Other columnists write about sports. In the world of sports, there's always something going on. A hard-up sports columnist can always do a little person- ality sketch on how his favorite pitcher developed his windup by ducking his mother - in - law'$ curves. Go on Safari Some columnists go out on safari with elephant guns and native trackers. Now a safari is good for any number of col- umns: 1) How the little woman kept the black part out of her blonde hair with no beauticians in the African bush; 2) how the No. 1 tracker reflects the on- ward march of civilization on the dark continent by cheating less-sophisticated bush brether- en; 3) the game spotted; 4) the big trophy kill: 5) the trip to the taxidermist; 6) why people are nit-wits who believe game should be hunted for the table, not the wall. No Problems Columnists like Father Thom- as and Anne Landers have no problems at all Their readers have the problems. All the col- umnists do is solve them. Hollywood columnists have it made. Just keeping track of the stars' current marital status is a full-time job. Columnists write about tax matters, foreign policy, domes- tic policy, the Kennedys, bridge, gardening, books, finance, local tid-bits, travel, reducing, fash- ion, "how-to", and astrology.
