Heib Jr.) Future Political Careers Assured By Frances Farrell Vitulli BOTHELL m With 19 future voters living right under the roof, the new mayor of Bothell, Dr. W a 1 t e r Sundstrom and city councilman Ray Schaaf may be assured a place in po- litical life for years to come. Members of St. Brendan Parish, the Sundstroms have nine children and the Sehaafs 10. And according to Rev. Anthony MeGirl, pastor of St. Brendan&apos;s, all are active par- ishioners. The doctor's family includes Judy, 17; Susan, 14; Ray, 12; Joe, 11; Laurie, 10; Mary Beth, 7; Lisa, 4; Jamie, 3, and year- old Jan. Judy attends Barbell High School; Susan and Ray go to Anderson Junior High and the other school-age youngsters attend Maywood Hills Elemen- tary School. All are enrolled in CCD classes. In the Schaaf household there are John, 15, and Rod, 13, both attending Anderson Junior High; Sara, 12; Ken, 11; Steve, I0, and Theresa, 7, also at Maywood Hills, while at home Mrs. Schaaf has her hands full with Kathy, 5; Karen, 4; Joe, 2, and Beverly born the day be- fore her dad's election in March. The young Schaafs also attend Confraternity classes. With construction beginning at once on a school at St. Bren- dan's, Father McGirl will prob- ably find a Schaaf or a Sund- strom in every grade. Lois Sundstrom and Beth Sehaaf, mothers of the future voters, are charming and at- tractive women with an ob- vious flare for winning a few votes on their own. Both women are active at St. Brendan's. Lois is a member of St. Ann's Guild and Beth, a member of St. Margaret's. Their busy husbands also do- nate what free time they have to parish activities. Ray Schaaf, a sales repre- sentative for Shell Oil, is best known in the north King Coun- ty area for his work with youngsters in the King Coun- ty Junior League football and. baseball program, a program he has been instrumental in keeping alive. In an effort to aid both the league and his parish, Ray set up a safe fireworks booth last Fourth of July. The Jun- ior League boys built the booth and the women of Beth's guild staffed it with proceeds being split 50-50. Dr. Sundstrom, a general practitioner at the Doctors' Clinic in Bothell, will be spending most of his free hours at the town's city hall for he hopes to have regular office hours two or three mornings a week, a practice unprecedented in Barbell's history. Those mornings the doctor has no hospital calls he will spend as Mr. Mayor. A native of Skykomish, Dr. Sundstrom met his wife at Lincoln High School in Seat- tle. He later graduated from the University of Washington undergraduate a n d medical schools. His wife attended Se- attle University "when it was Seattle College, and that surely dates me," Lois laughed. They have lived in Barbell nine years. Bothelrs first lady antici- pates no drastic changes as she assumes her new role. "My husband says 'Don't worry' but I can't help wondering how I'll do." Family life at the Sund- stroms' usually' means differ- ent activities for each child. "Togetherness really gets un- wieldy with 11 of us," Lois said. "We have a place on Whidbey Island which we en- joy and all the children swim, but that's about their only common interest. We try to let each foster his own inter- eats." The Sebeai family home is situated on an acre and a half of land ideal for playing chil- dren and within walking dis- tance of St. Brendan's and the various schools. Asked if she has time for any outside activities, Beth Schaaf laughed, "I love to read . . . it's my escape!" Although both wives would disclaim any influence on their husbands' victories, it is evi- dent at a glance that the vote- getting power of Dr. Sund- strom and Mr. Schaaf is only enhanced by the warm friend- ly personalities of Lois Sund- strom and Beth Schaaf and the handsome good looks of their 19 children. Mrs. Mary Koch Honored MARYSVILLE -- Mrs. Mary Joseph Study Club and Chris- tian Culture Development Koch, a member of St. Mary's Parish, has been named the "1994 Woman of Achievement" by the Business and Profes- sional Women of Marysville. Presentation of the award was made at the group's din- ner meeting Wednesday, April 15, at the Cedarcrest Restau- rant. Mrs. Koch was nominated far the honor by the St. Mary's Altar Society in a let- ter which cited her lifetime of participation in local civic, school, church and youth af- fairs, notin "All of Mary's c o m m u mty achievements have been done in a humble unassuming way. She has never desired glory for her- self but only to help her com- munity and her church." Born in Marysville and hav- ing lived there nearly all her life, Mrs. Koch worked many years for the Puget Sound Telephone Co., later West Coast Telephone. i.<.:..' $.:.x.:.:,.'.  i!i!i ,...:,....,.,.,.....^..................v.....v.y. :::::::::.

Doran Killed in Concerns Atheists BERLIN (NC)  Two interesting reports on anti-religious activity in Poland---one from a small town and the other from a city--have been received  here. Argumenty, the weekly pub- lication of the Society of Athe- ists and Freethinkers in Po- land, mourns over a report from the small town of Andry- chow where everybody goes to church, even party members. "The doctor is an unbeliever, yet he attends church," la- mented the magazine. "The local notables, regardless of their official declarations, also mostly attend church serv- ices." Party members not only go to church, they send their children to religion classes. Practically all the children go to religion classes in Andrychow. Correspondent Agata Ursynowsky reported that last September "the priest-cateehist stated with satisfaction that only three children do not attend reli- gion classes." The author reports unhappily that Marxism and Communist philosophy are given brief treatment in the government school. In Warsaw, the Communist party organ Polityka confessed it had received many unfavor- able letters after it published a bleak account of the life of a Catholic seminarian. It even published one of the letters. A young woman wrote: "As a girl student I came across many ex-seminarians. And I know that if a candidate could not go through the seminary he had no grudge towards any- body. "No one holds anybody by force in the seminary,, she continued. "On the contrary, before ordination the candi- date is given the opportunity to withdraw. This is not mentioned in your article be. cause it would be to the ad- vantage of the seminary." The writer said the regimen- tation which the magazine con- siders so evil in seminaries would be considered good in the army or in school. Polityka published the letter with little comment. Car Accident The Rev. Joseph J. Doran, formerly of the Archdiocese of Seattle and assistant pastor of St. Catherine's Parish, Farm- ingdale. N.J., was killed Wed- nesday in a traffic accident near Washington, N.J. Police said that Father Dor- an's automobile was struck in the rear by a tractor-trailer. The trailer's rig, police re- ported, hit the priest's car while trying to pass the auto. Father Doran, 49, had served in Seattle as assistant pastor of St. Anne's Parish from 1941 to 1944. He was then assigned to St. James Cathedral before leaving in 194S to transfer to the east to be near his family. Among the survivors is his mother. Mrs. Joseph Doran of Minesville, Pa. Father Doran was on his way to visit her when the accident occurred. A native of Branchdale, Pa., he attended St. Charles Semi- nary in Overbrook, Pa., before coming to St. Edward's Semi- nar in Kenmore in 1940. He was ordained here in 1941.
