Rev. E. C. McFadden, in charge
of the parishes of Syracuse and
Avoca was ordained a priest by Arch
bishop J. J. Glennan at Kenrick Sem
inary in St. Louis, Mo., June 12,
1914. Father McFadden entered the
army the day after war was de
clared and was commissioned as
First Lieutenant Chaplain in the
regular army and became a captain
before his resignation from the army
after the war.
Father McFadden served as pastor
of the Milligan-Tobias parishes un
til 1935, when he was transferred to
Syracuse and Avoca. Father McFad
den is very active in the American
Legion, being at present commander
of Massie-Richards American Legion
post Xo. 100 of Syracuse. He served
at Department Chaplain of the Le
gion in 1932-33 and is past county
commander of Otoe county. At pres
ent he is state chaplain of the 40
s rf th American Leeion and
AAV4 - "- ,
Legion 12th district Chaplain. 'He
served one rear as state chairman of
Junior baseball and is at the present
time one of the three members of
the Legion's state baseball committee
administering the Junior baseball
program over the state.
The Journal congratulates Father
McFadden on his twenty-five years
of priesthood. Knowing him very
well, we have always found him to
be very capable and fair-minded a
man who has the interest of every
one and especially the younger gen
eration at heart. His administration
of the Junior baseball program in
1937 was most successful, because in
all the little difficulties that arose
he made team managers see the point
that they themselves should have
been teaching the boys, namely, that
winning games is not all-important;
the important thing is good sports
manship win or lose.
His administration of the two par
ishes has also been most successful,
and we rather guess because he has
applied the same philosophy to re
ligion that he brought to American
t Ao-nn Tiininr baseball at a time
JUiCIVF.. W .
when slightly other ideas prevailed
among the managers.
