Edited by the Jesuit Clerics ,at West Baden College 'What does a good-look]n{ young woman like me do when the last day of the school year arrives? No s e n s e standing around my locker any more. The boys have fled these hal- lowed old corridors. No more rides home in nice new con- vertibles. Oh sure, they'll be around on the week ends. The unions don't allow work on Saturday. And the C h u r c h keeps Sunday free. But in the meantime, I'm going to get a little tired looking out the liv- ing-room window. Why don't the editors'0f FTO find xne a job?" WELL (we respond), t h e FTO staff is an all-male organ- ization. Its office files just don't seem to have many sta- tistics on young working girls. Girls are working. We know that from the amount of money they spend on clothes. They could never get t h a t much refreshments. Contest Winners Feted said merely: "It's not a nice place. It's just not very nice." Understatement is what we ex- pect from men who know bet- ter than to exaggerate and are equally reluctant to relive grim times. So Captain McKone let it go at that. THEY B O T H HAD BEEN QUESTIONED c o n t i n u ally, threatened with possible death for spying, had talked to no- body but their tight-mouthed guards and their questioners. They saw e~ch other only twice during the whole imprisonment of seven months, heard almost nothing of the outside world. In each of their 8-by-15 foot cells, bright lights burned day and night. Captain McKone's "not very nice" just doesn't seem to do justice to a harry- ing half-year in which lesser men might have worried them- selves into breakdowns. What saved Captains Mc- Kone and Olmstead? What held them up? In McKone's words. it was "faith and hope and be- lief in God" that did it. Both asked for Bibles. Only elm- stead got one. and he was ridi- culed for making the request. Then there were t h e math money from.their parents, problems they worked out in We agree that looking out a their heads to keep their minds living-room window on a bright off grimmer things there are summer day is boring enough, grimmer t h i n g s than math So here's e thought--have you problems.
