Sister Mary Basiline. B.V.M.. chair man of the philosophy department, is the author of a recently issued brochure en titled The Place and Function or Logic in Post War Curricula. Because of the acclaim Sister's ad dress on that subject received at its first presentation, at the American Cath olic Philosophical Association meeting last spring, it has been reprinted from the Proceedings of the meeting. The thesis is directed toward framers of curricula in schools at the elementary aud secondary levels, as well as in the college and university. To combat emotional chaos in the postwar world, it will be increasingly necessary, Sister Mary Basiline believes, to improve the present system of teach ing the young to think logically. The introduction of logic in the form of germinal ideas in the very first stages of the educational process, to be de- veloped in regular ascending progression throughout the grades of the elementary and secondary schools, is the solution Sister Mary Basiline presents. Speaks at National Safety Congress Sister Mary Carmelyn, B.V.M., of the art department, described the organiza tion and operation of the College Safety Council before delegates to the thirty- third National Safety Congress, at the LaSalle Hotel on Oct. 4.

B.V.M., and Sister Mary Benedict, B.V.M., both of the education department, were recently appointed to the Board of Education of the Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The newly established Board has for its purpose the administration and supervision of all the schools conducted by the Congregation, and the determi nation of educational policies and pro cedures. Challenging the students to make the most of their intellectual and spiritual opportunities in college. Sister Mary Justitia. B.V.M., President of the Col lege, and Sister Mary Bemarda, B.V.M., Dean, welcomed the student body, at the initial convocation, on Sept. 9. Your decision to attend college this year proves that you are not only among the wises' young women in the world. Sister Mary Justitia began her address- it proves, also, that you are among the most patriotic, since ur President and the officials of our coun try have been urging all young people not drafted into service to spend this year in study, in careful preparation for the responsibilities which America must face in the postwar era. Pointing out that, in classes, in con ferences with Faculty members, in the facilities of the library and laboratories, and in the spiritual life of the college, centered in Stella Maris Chapel, the students have access to every means for educational progress, Sister Mary Jus titia stressed the need for character de velopment as well as for intellectual growth. The Faculty of Mundelein College, Sister concluded, prays that, through your education at Mundelein. you may become young women admirably fitted for intelligent, well-poised living, for social and civic leadership, and for ser vice to Church and State. Sister Mary Bemarda. B.V.M., ex plained the' new attendance regulations, drawn up this summer by a Faculty committee, and the new elevator reg ulations, made necessary by the un usually large number of students. After describing campus customs, Sis ter Mary Bemarda urged all new stu dents to become familiar with the con tents of the College Handbook, and to share in the friendly Faculty-student relations which characterize the College.
