Rescued Chinese
Lose Plea to
Stay in Canada
By the Associated Pres*.
AN EA8T COAST CANADIAN
PORT, March 16.—An old Chinese
custom that a rescued person be
comes forever afterward the ward
of his rescuer received a rude set
back today' when immigration au
thorities ruled that 54 Chinese saved
from torpedoed ships could not re
main m Canada.
The seamen argiled that when
U-boat explosives tossed them into
the icy Atlantic they were dead and
were reborn again only when a
rescue boat landed them in Canada.
Thus, they contended, they were
Canadian citizens bv birth and en
titled to stay in this land of sym
pathy.
Before advancing the reincarna
tion theory, the Chinese had refused
to leave port unless they sailed on a
ship bound for Hong Kong, their
home, although there would be no
such ship because Hong Kong has
fallen to the Japanese.
The immigration office has ruled
they must either go to sea or face
deportation.

In congratulating the two women
officers, on behalf of Gen. George C.

cision to promote them was made
in token of the esteem of the Amy
won by the outstanding service of
the rapidly expanding Nurse Corps.

Patriotism and God
Held Inseparable by
Bishop McNamara
Prelate Addresses
Catholic Students
Mission Crusade
The Most Rev. John M. Mc
Namara, vicar general of the arch
dioceses of Baltimore and Washing
ton, told more than 450 members of
the Catholic Students Mission Cru
sade yesterday that in missionary
work they are serving their country
as veil as their God.
The prelate spoke at the annual
rally of the Crusade at St. Gabriel’s
Church, Grant Circle N.W.
Bishop McNamara urged his audi
ence of members of the Catholic
University Conference of Clerics and
Religious, the Veteran Conference
and public high school units to build
love of country on love of God.
This Is necessary, he said, if de
mocracy is to be preserved, since
men cannot be guided by reason
unless they give recognition to God.
Assisting in the services were
Msgr. Louis C. Vaeth, archdiocesan
director of the Society for the
Propagation of the Faith, and the
Rev. Louis W. Albert and the Rev.
John B. Roeder, assistant pastors of
St. Gabriel’s Church.
Certificates and medals for “out
standing missionary activity during
1941” were presented to members of
the Crusade by Bishop McNamara.
Those receiving the Grand Cross,
highest honor bestowed by the
organization, were Miss Eleanora
Coleren of the McNamara Unit,
Mrs. Sarah Rice of the Biondo Unit,
Corpl. Joseph Dawson of the Bishop
Carroll Unit and the Rev. Aubert
F. Reilly, president of the Catholic
University Conference of Clerics and
Religious.
Corpl. Dawson was unable to at
tend the ceremonies yesterday. His
award will be sent to him at his
Army post.
