H., Sept. 1G. —(/P)—Huddled in the slimy, Gripping interior of the salvaged Submarine Squalus, members of a naval board of inquiry grimly viewed a mechanical demonstration which dramatically illustrated what may have caused the craft to plunge to tragedy May 23. Only a short time after 25 of the 26 dead were removed from the rusty, battered hull Friday, board members watched a navy man yank a lever designed to close two air intake valves on the sub. The smaller of the two banged shut promptly. The other—and larger—valve did not budge.

On Sept. 13, 1669, Pere Marquette arrived at the Mission of the Holy Ghost at LaPointe on Chequamegon Bay at the western extremity of Lake Superior. "At LaPointe," writes the Rev. Fr. Gilbert J. Garraghan, S. J., noted Marquette student, in his book entitled "Marquette," "Pere Marquette found a motley throng of Indians of differ- Ottawa, Hurons, and Sinago, the ent tribes, Kishkakons two latter being Ottawa sub- tribes. Among them Father Allouez the had trouble that might lie ahead. "No one must hope to escape crosses in our missions," he commented, "and the 'best way to live happy is not to f.ear them but in the enjoyment of little crosses to hope for others still greater." One tribe of the several Marquette dealt with at, LaPointe, the Ottawa Sinago, was especially hostile to Christianity. Even his chronic optimism did not permit him to hope that anything could be done with them. "I think that so little can ers of their reveries." All in all, the mission center at the western .end of Lake Superior, for all its difficulties, was not an unpromising one. Had not circumstances unexpectedly swept it away, it would very probably have developed into a Christian settlement of note. As to the Kishkakons, they were not to forget the affectionate ministrations lavished upon them by Marquette, whom they tenderly loved. A few years later a band of these Indians were to exhume the remains of their one-time father in Christ with loving care from the lonely hillside near Pere Marquette Jake and bear them in solemn convoy to their long- resting place at St. Ignace.

In every situation, even the most disheartening, nothing seemed to discourage him, to depress him, to halt his march as he went forward in an unwavering trust in Providence and a supreme confidence that in the long run everything would turn out for the 'best. "The consequence was that he had all his energies steadily at command to lavish them without stint on the immediate task in hand. One day's work followed another, each the most rounded out piece of service for God and man he was capable of turning out, the result being a sin,'and the voice that bid me remember I was a Christian; for I left the companion of my guilt without committing the sin.' He now often speaks of devotion to the angels and explains it to the'other Indians." The Strong Tribe Kishkakons were a strong, aggressive tribe who dominated the three other tribes of the LaPointe group. Marquette's influence over them came to be considerable, and they responded to his ministry with gratifying results.

Joy in Work What is known of Father Marquette's ministry at LaPointe is restricted to the contents of a letter which he wrote, the year after his arrival there, to his superior, Father LeMer- cier.
