FFdDAY. FEBRUARY 3, 1961 St. Mary, THE OBSERVER This article was written b~] a teacher, at St. Mary school, Oregom OREGON --- The children of St. Mary school (Oregon and Me. Morris) are taking an ac- tive, and for the most part, an enthusiastic part in the diocesan drive for better reading. Books for the school library are being purchased from the money raised by the activities o[ fl~e Catholic Daughters and the Mothers' Guild. A set of the World Book En- cyclopedia was presented the school by the George McGuires. The Francis Loans gave a set of The American International Encyclopedia and the Adrian Cattoens gave the Golden Book Encyclopedia as well as a book on printing. This latter is valu- able as, it will not be published again for fifty years. Many books of fiction, science, etc. were donated by individual par- ishioners. This collection of books is sup- plemented by the books in the classroom libraries and by the fine books loaned by the Oregon and Me. Morris libraries. The librarians in both towns are very~ helpful and obliging. Charts, listing the nine cate- gories, are on display in each classroom. These charts, by means of colored stars, show the progress of each child. A record of the books read in each category is kept on file. When the child has read the four books in each category, he is eligible for the diocesan meri: award. Three Are Eligible Linda Farrell, sixth grade John Maxson. second grade, and Patricia Conroy, first grade are already eligible. Their names will be placed on the special chart sent out by the Diocesan School Board. The pastor is as interested as any one, and in spite of his manifold activities and the numberless calls upon his time, has, on several occasions heard the reading in the first and sec- ond grades. This interest is cer- tainly an added spur to greater effort on the part of these chil- dren. -k, -k -k The fifth andsixth grade classroom at St. Mary school, Oregon, is very proud of its reading display and the fact that one of its members has al- ready received the reading merit badge.
