To get this story, writer Robert Donovan traveled halfway around the world. He got eyewit- ness reports from every survivor of the Kennedy crew. He even interviewed the Japanese com- mander whose destroyer sank Kennedy's PT boat. This is a story of heroism, humor and heartbreak. You will follow John Kennedy's adventures from the moment his ship went down- right up to his dramatic rescue from a desert island. Read "PT 109: The Adventure That Made a President."

WOOD SMITH OIL FOR DEPENDABLE SERVICE The Vineyard By Lisa Ferris Catholic Charities Staff It has been some time since we have related a case history. However, usual many stories may appear, each one has its own particular twist On this day an emergency meeting was arranged for what appeared to be a very emotional person. Sitting across from a caseworker, the distraught wom' an began to tell her story. It appeared that her husband had owned a small business. Instead of prosperity, which they had hoped for, the business took a downward drop. Some days the net intake was $5, which made it difficult to feed a family of eight. Money Problems Bills couldn't be met, and there was no money for current ex- Community Chest Agency the form of food and clothing from the Catholic Salvage bu- reau. A job was secured for the husband and suddenly the family picture took on new hope and new light. Cases of this type are not un- common. In our work, we hear and see many such misfortunes. It is difficult for many to ac- cept stories such as this as true, but the stories you read in our column are about real people. We've told you about just one family. There are hundreds like this one. They file through our doors, young and old, each with a special story. Two Students From Diocese penses.
