Sheehy has spent every day visit

has listened to them speak of then

Father Sheehy told of one cor
poral who was in the same prison
camp as Father (Capt.) Emil J.
Kapaun, of the Wichita (Kans.)
Diocese, an Army chaplain, who,
he said, died from an infection. Ac
cording to the informant, anyone
who got an infection in the camp

Although this correspondent was
not able to speak to any of the
repatriated personnel, he had oc
casion many times to pass dose
to them. Most of them seemed to
be able to get about inder their
own steam. A goodly proportion
were suffering from pulmonary in
fections. The repatriates do not
strike one as a hilarious, boister
ous group. The general mood
seems rather to be one of subdued
jubilation. At any rate, the chap

are doing their best to make the
returned prisoners fee^ that they

Urgent Need for Teachers
Due to rapidly increasing enrollments Catholic elementary
schools throughout the diocese are in great need of additional
teachers. For example, in 1940 there were only 740 pupils enrolled
in the first grades of elementary schools in Columbus. This year.
2.000 pupils are expected in the first grades of Columbus elemen
tary schools, an increase of almost 200 per cent.
Additional lay teachers are needed to aid the teaching Sisters.
Here is an opportunity for many women who have either retired
or resigned from teaching careers in the public schools to serve
God and Church by offering their services to our Catholic schools,
if only for one year. In addition to the financial remuneration there
is the eternal reward which comes to tho.-e who dedicate their
talents to the service of God.
Any women who have had teaching experience or whose
educational background qualifies them for elementary school
teaching are urged to make application at once to: Superintendent
of Schools. 246 E. Town Street. Columbus 15.

Britain Joining General Appeal
To Beatify Frederick Ozan am
LONDON (NC) The crowd
ed annual meeting of the St. Vin

this week rattled the glass roof of
the conference hall with applause
at the news that Britain was back
ing the worldwide appeal for
Frederick Ozanam’s beatification.
His Eminence Bernard Cardinal
Griffin, Archbishop of Westmin

that he had already written to
Rome for this purpose.
The cardinal said that Ozanam.
who founded the great interna
tional society in Pans 120 years
ago, was a pioneer in the field we
now call the intellectual apostolate.
The age in which he was living was
essentially materialistic and anti
Catholic and he set out by him
self at ihe-age of 20 to reconvert
society to Christianity. Not only
did he organize the first lay so
ciety as a professor, by his scholar

ology and literature, but he en
deavored to show that all truth
was but a reflection of the su
preme Truth, which is Almighty
God Himself
Cardinal Griffin s id that Ozanam
was primarily concerned with the
youth ol his day.
“By his foundation ol the society
he tried to provide an answer to
the need oi saving the faith of
young men both ol his own time
Jtad of the present day,” His Emi
nence added. The society's work
for the spiritual and corporal
needs oi the poor was a secondary
objective. The primary need was
to deepen the faith and the spmtu

and, despite his gieat love tor the
