But this earnest mother may be using wrong methods, because she does not understand boys' needs at this age. She says, "He used to be such a sweet child and gave me very little trouble." Now he has grown physically as strong as his mother and she can no longer control him with sheer physical strength. Only his father can do that, and the time is com- ing when he will be as strong as his father. He has grown mentally, too, so that "baby" arguments no longer convince him. He has grown accus- tomed to scoldings and no longer fears them. Also he is growing socially, but he is not as perfect as his mother wants him to be. He is in a trial tnd error stage of finding his place in the grown up world. An even more important problem to him is to find his place in the even year old world. He needs understanding, help and training. He does not need nagging. Talking things over with him will have more effect. tar and Rosary Society will be in the sacristy on Feb. 2 and Feb. 3 to distribute the new blessed can- dles. Tae Holy Name Society is spon- soring a weekly athletic meetin.g in Community high gym each Thursday night. All men of the parish and servicemen especially are invited to come to the gym on Thursday evening. This is a part of the amplification of the society's activities under the new officers who hope the enlarged activities will include events of special* interest to the returning servicemen. The committee for the weekly parish party of Feb. 6 will be headed by Mr. and Mrs. Donald Gordon, chairmen, and Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Frank, co-chairmen. All friends of the larish are in- vited. Community high school girls joined the girls of the local Sterl- ing Township high school on Sat- urday, Jan. 26, to assist in the drive for "unds for the victims of infantile paralysis. The girls were stationed at stores through- out the business district to sell oranges donated by the Twin City Produce Company. Total proceeds from the orange sales were given toward the current fund raising effort. = The Whiteside County Tubercu- losis Society has invited the pupils of the 6th, 7th and 8th grades of St. Mary school to join the amy, Chicago, as deacon.

An uncle of the newly-ordained priest, the Rev. Albert M. Gauhapp, C.PP.S., will deliver the sermon The Observer, in writing to Fa- ther Gaulrapp for information re- 'arding his years of preparation, received a most interesting and enjoyable reply. That our read- ers may enjoy Father Gaulrapp's a kind and friendly answer, we pub- lish it verbatim: "I received my early grade school education in Saint Joseph's pa- rochial school. The privilege of serving at the altar from the days of my uncle's first Solemn Mass for whicll I was privately instruct- ed by Father Lehman (lid its share in leading me down the way to the priesthood. I left for Brunnerdale Seminary, Canton, Ohio, in the fall of 1934, being then 14 years old. (Maybe I should have mentioned that I was born in Freeport on July 23, 1920 of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Gaulrapp. Rather we were born: that supervisor m pediatrics at Saint Francis Hos- pital is my twin sister) I spent three years at this prep seminary of our Precious Blood Society. My last year of high-school-plus was taken at Saint Joseph's College, Collegeville, Indiana. At that same place I took my two years of pro-philosophy. Then in the fall of 1940 I came to our major seminary here. Here I took my two years of philosophy and my four years of theology. "I belong to the Society of the Precious Blood (Congregatio Pre- tiosissimi .,anguinis -- hence C.PP.S.) having made my tem- porary profession in 1938 and my final profession in 1941. I received tonsure and first minor orders in December of 1942; last minors m December of 1943 subdiaconate in June of 1945; diconate in Decem- ber of 1945." Members of The Observer staff join with parishioners of St. Jo- seph's in offering congratulations and good wishes to the newly-or- dained priest and to his father who lost the children's mother when the twins, Father Leo and Miss Margaret Gaulrapp, R.N. were born.
