Sister Marie Suzanna recently read a paper on her work at th° Microbiology Congress here in Borne and will present another re port to the Congress on Leprosy which meets this month in Madrid. The new germ discovered bv the nun belongs to the same species as the bacillus which causes Hansen’s disease and w hich cannot yet be cul tivated in a laboratory. By inject ing the germ into rats she has been able to produce for the first time lesions similar to those caus ed by inoculation with tissue taken from a victim of Hansen’s diseas1. Sister Marie Suzanne's work has been recognized as of major importance by scientists through out the world* The French gov ernment has given her a schol arship to work at the Superior Health Institute here, and the Italian government is paying the costs of her laboratory experi ments.

There is a sequel to the Sister’s work that hi laden with hope. A vaccine has been prepared from the new germ which has been test ed extensively in Africa. It has produced in healthy chil dren a reaction obtained only in those who have had and been cur ed of Hansen’s disease, indicating that the vaccinated children are now probably immune to it. It has also heen given to persons with an advanced case of the disease with promising results, howing that it may have therapeutic as well as preventive value. _o-------------------ent For Quick Result* Usa Want Ad* V FUNERAL HOME WILLIAM J.

The award is given for out standing work in advancing the well-being of the Church and the nation over the past year. Mr. Smith is the second highest offi cial in the U.S. Department of State. No nation can endure unless its roots are imbedded in moral prin ciple, Mr. Smith said. "Our Christian faith," ha added, "is basic to the spirit which moti vates our society. It pointed the road to our way of life long before our forefathers gave it political meaning." Today, he said. Christian con cepts are "the strongest bond linking us to other peoples. We live by them. They would mean lit tle if each of us were to leave them behind as he stepped out of his place of worship ...” The Christian heritage and way of lite, Mr. Smith continued, is precisely what, sets Americans apart from the communists. "The communists boast of their godlessness. .They are aggressively anti religious and have relentlessly persecuted the religious leaders of the peoples under their control They well know that an individual cannot serve God and commun ism.” Rad* Cutting Tit Mr. Smilh condemned commun ist persecution in the Soviet orbit and said the Reds are trying not only to eliminate a competitor of their communist dogma" by smash ing religious beliefs, hut also to waste and large carry over invent ories. Mr. Bolin spoke on the “Use of Basic Kitchen Equipment.” Miss Jeanette Hampton, food ex pert of the United States Depart ment of Agriculture, spoke on the "Utilization of Donated Foods,” and "How to Prepare Total Amounts of Food.” May Thev Rest In Peace FETTER, Frank 82.

Despite this, he continued, the United States is willing to negoti ate with"lhe Soviet Union to ease world tensions if the USSR dem onstrates good faith by concrete acts. But in a review and analysis of Soviet "peace moves since Stalin's death, the Under Secretary con cluded that the Reds have done nothing to indicate any change in their policy of pursuing world domination.
