"Only once irC the history of the

once in the scrolls of time has it
ever been recorded that a stone

Father V. J. Mahoney, of St. John's
Catholic church, here on Tuesday
morning in the opening remarks of
a talk he made on the Armistice

to see that scene re-enacted. The

Nazi party is convinced that the
adoration of race has supplanted
the adoration of God. And if all
this be true, then those honored
dead whose memory we venerate
this morning have died in vain.

must not forget Good Friday," he
