,rob == News Section--Page 8 THE OBSERVER Sunday, February 3, 1946 St. Vincent's / Jottmgs "There's a movie this afternoon!" our happy, excited youngsters were exclaiming as they hurried to their jobs, anxious to be ready when time came to be off. "They Were Expendable" was thoroughly en- joyed, not only for the sake of the movie itself, but, also for the re- laxation it afforded after a hard week of semi-final exams. Our thanks to Mr. Browll, temporary manager of the Patio. In the grade school basketball league contest, hekl in St. Vincent's JUST SAY...

Main Freeport gym last Sunday, St. Mary's won over St. Thomas by a score of 16 to 6, and St. Joseph's defeated St. Vincent's 18 to 17. Rivah'y in this league, sponsored by Freeport Council K. of C., is like the cheer leaders say "red hot." On Friday evening St. Vincent's, matched against Junior High in a basketball game, emerged the vic- tors by a score of 25 to 11. Sunday was a happy day for the West children. They were going to the new home which the parents are new'able to provide. In the short time they were here, they all endeared themselves to everyone by their' obliging and willing attitude. "St. Vincent's has clone a lot for me," says Maxine, "before I came here I didn't krmw any religion at all. I'm going to keep on going to a Catholic Church." She has learned much about God and developed a love for prayer. We hope that some day her 'rcat desire will be fulfilled. Sunday happened to be the birth- day of the two little West boys-- twins. It is the usual custoln, here, when a chiht has a birthday, that the group sings "Happy Birthday" at the breakfast table. But Harry could::t wait that long. Early in the morning' when Sister' came to awaken the boys, lie popped up, saying, "Sister, today is our birth- day, ltarold's and mine. Let's sing' Happy Birthday now." So the boys ang, in that early morning hour, in the midst of the radiant smiles of the twins. There's never a dull moment at St. Vincent's--Almost as soon as the four West children took their del)arture, four other chihh'en came here to live Heariug that one of the new little girls was in second grade, little Dorothy decided to see for herself if sAc'really belonged tbere.

Im- mediately Dorothy concluded, "Sis- ter, she says sl is in Second Grade and she can't even get seven and foul'." Be this as .it may, Dorothy and all the little girls have made fast friends of the newcomers. Little Maurice of Baby Room wants to be big. Whenever Sister gives out the clothing, he is sure to say, "Sister, I'm a big man; give me big ones" But when it comes to meal time, he wants "only a little bit." Sister is having a time trying to convince him that he must eat more if he wants big clotlies to fit him. A group of our Boy Scouts did a patriotic duty by assisting four nights in the March of Dimes col- lections at the Patio. Ou Wednesday nlorning the funeral of Mrs. Minnie Dullinger was held ira St. Vinccnt's Chapel. Minnie died in St. Joseph's Home last Monday. She was a convert of one week. Bein,' extremely hard of hearing, she hesitated to ask for instructions and admission to the Church. Very profusely sire ex- i)re,sed her gratitude sod happi- ness at being a child of God and of His Church after Father poured the cleansing" waters of Baptism over her head. Her prayers were beautiful during her dying mo- niches.
