In fact, there has been just enough of the sun-fun atmos- phere to make the appearance of September just a bit sadden- ing for in many ways it heralds the coming of lall. Of course, fall still holds the offering of warm and sunny days but the ever quickening disap- )earance of daylight hours, the opening of schools for another term and the approach of the Labor day holiday, considered as the final fling of the vacation season, makes it all too evident that winter will soon be upon us. Brighter Outlook Mothers of conrse will look forward to the opening of school and breath a sigh of relief when the kiddies are bundled off on opening day. For others, espe- cially older students, the new school term holds the charm of another active season with old friends--football and basketball games, sharing of summer ex- periences, and social activities. Liturgically, the month of September is the month of Mary, daily pressing anxiety, the care of CFM in Rockford. Father Smith knows we do not lie. At the Holiday, he skinned his knees playing leap-frog on the diving board for the enjoy- ment of his brethren. Behold, we are ready to come to you, and wherefore we write these things while absent that when present we may not act loolish- ly in deceit.
