PAGE 8 ST. VINCENT'S JOTTINGS Our first week of vacation was a busy one and time passed all too quickly. Each day the young- sters were permitted to go swim- ming in the afternoon and on the warm days they also went in the evening. Almost every day a group of children were taken for a bus ride into the country with the customary stop for ice cream or candy The newest addition to our recreat- ional facilities is a trampoline. Day by day the youngsters are bouncing to greater heights. A number of the Sisters travel- led to the Motherhouse in Joliet to be on hand for the Jubilee celebrations 1 a s t Tuesday. Among a large group of Golden Silver and Diamond Jubilarians were three of our Sisters, Sister Rosamunda, Sister Agatha and Sister Verona A second trip became neces~ sary when we were informed of REYNOLDS Funeral Home Established 70 Years Abe Renkes ---Owner Phone: Morrison 2322 ROSS V.

Market St.--Morrison the death of Mother Ursu)ine, who until 1958 was Mother Gen- eral of the Sisters. Since the close of school, a number of our children have been permitted to go home for good. Others have gone or will go to relatives and friends for a short vacation. But per usual there are a few new faces about the house each day as new children come to spend the summer with us. Even our teachers have gone for retreat and summer school and we already miss them. The five Sisters who teach ~n our school bade us goodbye dur- ing the past week. After spend- ing several days in retreat they will be occupied during the re- mainder of the summer with their summer school studies. We wish them all well and look forward to their return in early August. Through the kindness of Mr.~ O'Rourke we enjoyed a real treat at the Freeport theater on Monday as we witnessed "The Trapp Family". Many thanks. 11 Volunteer To Teach ROCK FALLS -- Eleven lay teachers along with Sister Mary Duchesne and the Rev.

There the Manhattan born girl, recently graduated from Caldwell College for Women, will receive $150 per month and an apartment which she will share with two other girls she has yet to meet. They will pay their own transportation costs to Alabama and will supply their own food. Like the others, Miss Malden-I ado was recruited for her job by Father Paul Mullaney, who an- nually tours northern Catholic women's colleges looking for! apostolic collegians to volunteel7 for the teacher program in the Mobile - Birmingham diocese. Explaining her own decision to volunteer, Miss Maldonado said: "I've had so many bless- ings -- health, parents who have spoiled me all my life, just life itself, I guess. I owe God so much. "And there's something else-- a very personal thing. When I was a baby I had a serious fall. My mother promised that if I re-i covered I would somehow give six months of my life to God. Well, when Father Mullaney spoke to us, and he said he need- ed teachers so badly and that if we volunteered we would be giv- ing a year to God -- I thought this would be the best way to thank God."

I have a wonderful family so please don't think I'm an in- grate. My best friend is two years old than I. I have met her friends and they are really nice girls. But my mother doesn't like them. But s h e doesn't k n o w them. They came over once in awhile on school nights. This didn't af- fect my home- work as they on- ly stayed a few minutes. II o wDoris R. Peters can I make my mother appreciate these girls. I told her she is prejudiced be- cause they aren't our national- ity. Our nationality is a closely knit group. I hate to tell these girls they can't come over. What can I tell my mother? Mary Many parents who have come from other countries are more at home with their own nation- ality. They have no language barrier and understand one an- n't know them. Invite them in on a week-end when they can stay longer than just a few minutes and let her see for herself that they are really "nice girls." Dear Doris: A new boy came to our school this past year and he came with a reputation that wasn't so hot. The Sisters who teach at our school didn't seem to like him. We would be expelled, they said, if we were caught talking to him. Do you think Sisters have a right to tell us who we can or cannot talk to? Eighth grade girls Sisters are pretty good judges of character, particularly where boys and girls are concerned. But I doubt if they would have accepted, the boy in school if they didn't want you to talk to him. n F You probably misunderstood them or listened to a rumor. If this boy did come with "a reputation that wasn't so hot" all he may need to change is a good environment which you and the Sisters provide.
