The experience would be invaluable at the end of a high school course because it would give the boy who received it a broader understanding and better knowl- edge of human affairs. Ronald Moore was offered the opportunity. With the approval of his mother, he went to Springfield. Sister Agreda, another one of our very good friends; knew Ronnie when she was Superior here.
