The fellow who thinks he knows it all is especially an- noying to those of us who do. These are cheerful? Maybe we can do better with the following story from the NCWC. It involves newly conse- crated Bishop Thomas P. Col- lins, M.M who was greeted like a number one matador on his re- turn to his jungle to see in Riber- alta, Bolivia recently. In Name Only "We were just finishing a large procession," said Father Paul O'Brien, M.M of Cincin- nati, Ohio, "when, as if it were planned, the American Bishop's plane appeared overhead." The huge crowd literally charged to the small airport to greet the new Vicar Apostolic of Panda. Cheers of "Viva Obispo Tomas" accompanied the smil- ing 45-year-old San Francisco prelate all the way to his ca- thedral where he gave the pea- ple his blessing. "Perhaps," said Father O'- Brian, "a remark by a Protes- tant missioner on the same plane, who struggled 15minutes to get through the cheering crowd, best sums up the occa- sion when he was overheard muttering: 'Who said Latin America is Catholic in name FREE PARKING DRIVE-IN SERVICE Downer & River Sts.

Recently Cardinal Cushing of Boston offered a remedy for those inclined to quantity rather than quality in public speaking . . . a bell or buzzer to signal 15 minutes. The archbishop was talking about his own inclination to ex- press a number of ideas in many areas on the same occa- sion. He revealed the criticism given him that "you are fine for about 15 minutes but at the half hour mark, one is more in- terested in physical survival than spiritual sustenance. From then on, one just lives in hope." Of course such a device may not always be the answer, es- pecially when you're dealing with a pigeon such as did the parishioners at Our Lady of Good Counsel church in Aurora recently. Curious Dove It seems the pigeon took an interest in Sunday services and refused to be budged from his perch atop a window ledge, that is until the service began. Then he became so interested that he settled atop the white hat of one of the ladies in the third row-- up front of course. After his hasty departure from that van- tage point he left the church. He returned, however, at a later Mass where he was finally evicted by one of the parishion- ers who made a midair catch, and on the first pass. According to the Aurora Beacon-News the "last that was seen of the inci- dent was a flurry of feathers surrounded by a tie-flying par- ishioner--both making a hasty exit through a side door." Double-Cross And then there was a woman in Rockford who answered the telephone with little quips such as "Smith's Mental institution for harassed mothers." She did this of course only when she was "sure" that her husband was calling, which he did at the same time every day. One day her mate, in a jest- ing mood, had a priest-friend call. The conversation went something like this: "Jones' Moving and Storage warehouse." "I beg your pardon!" Oh, I- ah- excuse me I thought it was my husband call- ing!" "Well, this is most confusing. I don't understand." "Why, you--ah--see, this is a little joke that I have with my husband. I--ah. Well, anyway . . What number are you call- hag?" At this point the callers were unable to restrain themselves and they burst out laughing. Na- turally when the fellow explain- ed his little joke, he really need- ed a priest. He survived, nevertheless, and the payoff came the next day when he called home at the usual time. His wife picked up the tele- phone and, having decided to play it safe this time, said: "Hello! This is Heaven. Head angel speaking." Feasts in August Feast day to remember dur- ing the month of August: the Transfiguration of Our Lord; St. John Vianney; St. Clare; the Assumption of the Blessed Vir- gin (holy day of obligation) ; the Immaculate Heart of Mary; St. Bartholomew, apostle; St. Au- gustine; and the beheading of St. John Baptist. Thought for the month, from a fellow named Dwight Morrow: The world is di-ided into peo- ple who do things and people who get the credit Try, if you can, to belong to the first class-- there's far less competition.

It was also discovered that the acquisition of a car resulted in a serious drop in grades among students who of the institute. | had previously done very well in school. As we would expect, extensive use of the car for social activities during the week is highly detrimental to scholarship. It is estimated that a student TWlNOAKS 7-9801 using the car frequently on evenings during the school week is 20 times more likely to get "F" grades than to be an "A" student. YOUR PARENTS MUST ALSO have another fact in mind. They cannot be unaware that the use of cars for dating becomes the source of serious moral problems ~or high school students. Cars render parental guidance or supervision practically im- possible, while the proper use of the almost unlimited freedom they provide demands more moral and emotional maturity than most high school students possess. I HAVE NOT GONE OUT OF MY WAY to make out a strong case for your parents' position, Jim, yet considering the rather obvious facts that I have mentioned above, what other stand could we expect them to take? If they have any concern for your future happiness and success, they will stick to their decision, no matter what driving privileges other parents may decide to grant. PERHAPS IT WILL HELP YQU maintain proper perspective in dealing with this problem if you keep the answer to one simple question clearly in mind: What is the most important work I have to accomplish at this particular stage in my de- velopment? You're no longer a child, Jim. You're engaged in the very serious business of preparing for life, and in our so- ciety, this means that most of your energy and time must bf focused on your studies. OF COURSE YOU MAY PRESENTLY get by with a minimum of effort, but where will this leave you five, ten, fifteen years from now? The kind of preparation you receive now Will de- termine your whole future, and it's primarily up to you. Why not give yourself a break by using your time and energy in a way that will really count? 41 SOUTH ISLAND AVE AURORA, ILLINOIS "SPECIALIZING IN COMMERCIAL PHOTOGRAPHY" SWISS OPTOMETRIST Eyes Examined -- Glasses Fitted Contact Lenses 7 Galena Blvd. Phone Aurora Hotel Bldg.
