It reads, "Thanksgiving before meals." Below are prayers for Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox, and on the other side Jewish and Protestant. Benton E. Caldpn, division ,areq manager for the restaurants along the Turnpike is, responsible. In 1951, when he was •astern division manager of the restaurants on the Pennsylvania Turnpike, he and his associate decided the prayer curds would be an invitation and inspiration to all to give thanks before, meals. . He has sustained the policy Wherever his work has taken him. In the many letters of favorable comment, he has had requests for large numbers of the cards from both individuals and organizations. These requests he always fills. Re- •ently a. commandant of a military academy asked for the cards to be used by the cadets at meals. They rotate the blessings, using a different one at every meal. The words are a little different, but In each the spirit is the same. . ;- , ' .

Weekly Book Review From City Library By DAVID BAttL MOLT Librarian "A Man Named John: The Life of Pope John XXltt," By Alden Hatch. On a warm summer evening in Rome on June 3, 1963, the world lost one of its greatest and most beloved religious leaders Pope John XXHl, the "Pope of the people," after only four and one half years as the supreme pontiff of the Catholic church, was called to God. His death, though sudden to most, was not to John. For almost a year he had known that the small pain which almost, imperceptibly sapped his magnificent stamina was a tumor that could not be removed because of his advanced age. During that year he had driven himself unceasingly in his urgency to achieve his intense ambition—to bring into unity all who said, "Our Father" and peace to all men everywhere. Born on Nov. 25, 1881, on a windy, rainy day in a small Italian village of Sotto il Monte (Under the Mountain), Angelo Roncalli, son of a peasant, knew both privation and hardship as a child. His rise from these hum- le beginnings to culmination as he Vicar of Christ is told in in- piring and sympathetic narra- ive by an author who was acquainted not only with documentary matter, but also the people .vith whom Pope John grew up —his relations, friends and asso- For Roxana Nazareties Church Grtrttp* Will We&kinShipman The Rev.

ANKARA—Turkish police wil move to bar obscene movies. French petroleum is climbing rapidly. production lates. The book vividly re-creates :he life of an extraordinary figure, a Pope who blended diplomatic grace with the simplicity of a humble farmer. His was a 'ather's concern and friendship : or the poor and weak and their daily problems. Yet he had a ;een insight into contemporary ivorld politics and international relations. His consuming desire, always evident, was for the ultimate union of all creeds. His record of achievements from his writing of eight encyclicals, to the calling up of the Ecumenical Council—are as impressive as any Pope's, despite his all too short reign; his sincere love for his children—the precedent breaking visit to the Regina Coeli Prison, all endeared him to the hearts of Catholic and non-Catholic alike. "A Man Named John," is a story of a man whose devotion to God, his church and his people led him from poor fields on an isolated farm to the glory and greatness of the Throne of Peter. Highly recommended.
