Eugene Heisler, eldest of five children of Mr. and Mrs. John "Heisler of Bankston. professed vows August 5 as a member of the Glenmary Home Missioners d America. The youth, who was grade. ated from St. Joseph's High School in Farley, Iowa, June 9, had planned since, last sum. mar to become a Gleumary Brother. A week after his ':. graduation it was disoover that he was nffering from cancer. Arrangements were made for the profession ceremonies to be made early and in his home parish. The superior general of the community, F a t he r Clement Berchers, and two other Glen- mary missioners came h e r from Cincinnati for the investi- ture and profession ceremonies. The customary t h r e- year study period required of stu- dents before taking their final vows was waived by special permission.

''he kids were afraid they would have to go home early, and camp isn't finished f o r three days yet," Cathy said. "It was exactly a quarter to five when we went down. I know, because my watch stopped. The kids were wen- derful, not one of them pan- icked. They sang all the way" "They always said t h e y never lost a camper yet," Betsy said. "I kept thinking we better keep this saying true. "It was a good thing Gary threw us the rope It kept everyone together," C a t h y stated "We have boating class- es, and they knew how to use their life jackets. Norma lost her guitar. She tied it to the Walrus." "Yes," Norton said, "And the guitar went down. But we saved all the glasses. Every- one who had glasses kept them." "But we lost all the sleep- ing bags," Linda said. "And a lot of clothing." "Hey," N o r m a suddenly shouted, "We don't, h a v e to wash camp tents. We lost them, too. We didn't have any food. We ate it before we started home." Main problem was the loss of the sleeping bags, but extra blankets were found, and 21 new sleeping bags were sent in from Tacoma. There was pride in the eyes of J. G. (Gordy) Hamilton of Seattle, the director of sum- mer camping for the Catholic Youth Organization. Praises Kids "These kids w e r e wonder- ful," he said "What a heroic job they did. I'm proud of the staff, and proud of the camp- ers. They were all great." Mrs. Paul Fisher (known to campers as "Miss Elaine") of Seattle who is camp director had nothing but praise for the young staff members who per- formed brilliantly in the emer- gency. She is a registered nurse, but there was little use for her services in spite of the accident Most of the campers went to bed in their cabins after the experience, but three of the girls, each 14, were allowed to sit by the fireplace in the lodge. They were Terry Mat- son, Shelly Georghegan a n d Mary Harvey, all of Seattle. "I lost my brother's ski parka," Terry said. "I hope he doesn't get mad." "We lost our bathing suits-- and my tooth brush, too, How can I brush my teeth tomor- row?" Shelly asked. "And I lost my shoes," Mary commented. Praises Training "The way they handled AT A HOUSING PROJECT in New Orleans, seminarians spend their summer vacation aiding children to find healthful recreation. Once a week the youngsters are taken on an during away from the crowded project. Some of them rarely ever leave the community within a dty. In this picture seminarian Michael Aymami supervises a ball game for young residents of a project. (NC Photo.) Once.In-A-Lifetime Coincidence Paul Is Recalled Msgr. Montini was being shown around the NCWC Im- migration Department. At random his guide picked out of the department's files two cards containing immigrant followup reports. The files contained 50,000 such cards. One of the two chosen related to a young boy who had come to the United States in 1926. The boy's name: Giovanni Montini. Involving Pope WASHINGTON, (NC) ---Veterans around the headquarters building of t h e National Catholic Welfare Conference still recall a remarkable coinci- denca involving His Holiness Pope Paul VI. It happened August 28, 1951, when Pope Paul--then Msgr. Giovanni B. Montini, Papal Substitute Secretary of State-- visited the NCWC headquarters during a U. S. tour. ATTEND THF. L_ 8th Quadrennial HOtY HAME CONVENTTOll BIdM, N. Y, * Aug. gl-2, 1963 a ba.a the rama.t,g. themselves was terrific," the Rev. Jarlath Heneghan of St. James Parish, Seattle, com- mented. Fr. Heneghan, former- ly of St. Frances Cabrini Cath- olic Church, Tacoma, is chap- lain at the camp. "That's where the training pays off in case of emergency." "There was no panic at all, even though s o m e couldn't swim very well. As soon as I noticed it taking water, I started handing out life jac- kets," Mike said. "The next thing I knew, I was in the water swimming. When I got oriented, the kids were 'way ahead of Gary and me. I wouldn't want to go through it again. "I didn't realize we w e re going down until I felt water on my legs--well, actually I knew, but you just can't bring yourself to believe it's hap- pening." Now, there's a problem, with no more good ship Walrus. "We never took the younger kids on the boat. They just live for the day when they're old enough to go on that ship," Mrs. Fisher said. "There will be one m o re group coming in this summer, but they won't get a ride this year. They're just going to be sick. They look forward to that boat ride." Hamilton said it was the quarter-inch armor plate which can stand .50 caliber machine gunfire which gave way on the craft. Popped Loose "We were watching it all the time to check for dry rot or anything like that. There was no sign it wasn't safe. It just popped loose. After all, I'm a former commander in the U.S. Navy and know something about things like that." All but four of the 20 little heroines aboard were f r o m Seattle. They included Anne Connolly of Shelton, Andrea Fisher of LaGrande, Jeanne Tarobochia of Skamokawa, Wash., and Virginia Kiehl of Olympia. The rest were Mary Engel, Cathy Hall, Janet Mi- holovich, Sharye Morris, Leslie Raschkn, Kathi ReeD, Teresa Toulouse, Marcella Benckert, Katherine Burns, Patti Harvey, Claire Lidzbarski, Teresa Mat- son, Barbara Thiel and Kathy Wvhlschnig. It was all over--had been for hours. Hamilton had bounced around the camp cheerfully, answering phone calls f r o m worried parents, arranging for more sleeping bags and taking over in general. He was almost too cheerful for what had hap- pened, and it didn't look right. Then momentarily he disap- peared. Reporters started to leave and wanted to think him. Then, they found Hamilton standing in the dark by his car. Tears were streaming down "Gordy's" face; as he said: *'Remember, fellows, we had nothing to do with it. Al- mighty God was good to us. "He was really working." Babies, berries add variety to Blanchet By Joan Craig Camp Correspondent CYO Camp Bluachet The green and yellow CYO buses crawled up the hill, into Camp Blanchet with 103 more hardy, song-singin' girls, .who began the second session with rip-roaring enthusiasm. This lively spirit has been gal- loping at full speed ever since. Staff skit night provided a surprise for the male members of Blanchet. Mrs. Elaine Fish- er, girls' camp director, panto- mimed the diapering of a baby, and the boys were to follow suit Not having been told what they were to pantomime, the results were hilarious and this surprise was enjoyed by all. Campers were busily signing for their favorite actvities on "Choice Day." Extra added at- tractions included a beachcomb- ing hike and blackberry pick- ing. "Miss" Linda Clarry led the beachcombing p a r t y and the girls came back looking like they really did comb the beach --with themselves! The berry-picking crew, with "Miss" Lindn Hemingway giv- ing orders, seemed to have made "person toperson" eon- ueetiens w i t h the berries. Upon entering e a m p they made quite a colorful scene as they rushed for the hoses, (they had old  e I o t h e s on Mom). Many of the berries did make it to the kitchen however, and were eaten in the form of pies at dinner. Pope John's Almanac When the late Pope Iohn was presented with a 1959 Farmer's Almanac, the Catholic Digest sttttes he said, "I come from a long line of farmers, I am going to study my Eng- hah by reading the Almanac."

Heib Jr.) 'Winston' e arrives to aid Don Bosco By Tom Greener Camp Correspondent CYO CAMP DON BOSCO... "Are you camping more now, but enjoying it less?" Not at Camp Don Bosco. 182 campers and 27 staff members are now completing a highly spirited and successful fifth ses- sion at the Carnation camp, and nary a grumble has emi- nated from campers or staff alike. Again this session the staff, headed by "Moo" Elbert, has outdone themselves to insure a "good time and worthwhile ex- perience for all concerned." As part of the "New Spirit," a new mascot has been found for camp. He is Winston. Winston is one of five piglets imported to camp to dispose of garbage. Winston is the smallest, there- fore the most "adorable" of the lot and admired by'all the campers. Winston is sung to at every meal, and he reciprocates by devouring the campers' gar- bage. In technical terms, this is known as "mutual benefit." Highlight of the session was the gigantic - t y p e birthday party for Winston, held re- cently on the camp athletic field. The campers enjoyed a cookout, and Winston was loudly lauded as he lapped up a ldt-over layer cake. The fifth session saw also the completion of remodeling and expansion activity at the Sylvan Theatre--a natural dirt bowl converted into a Roman amphi- theatre and used for staff and camper stunt (skit) nights. The old theatre, built seven years ago by Father James Gandrau -- then a seminarian on camp staff -- held 180 camp- ers comfortably. The renovated structure will hold almost 250 people. The en- tire project was planned and ex- ecuted by Mr. Joseph ("China Doll") Harris, another former staffer who will return to the Maryknoll Seminary in Bedford, Mass., this fall. Joe has done a tremendous job of remodeling the Sylvan Theatre, as well as all of the old ledge sectional campfires (used 3-4 times a ses- sion in place of general camp- fires). Helping Joe are Grog Waish, a minor seminarian from St. Edward's Seminary, Kenmore; J e r r y Shanahan, a junior at Lincoln High School, Tacoma; Terry Cannon, who will attend Everett Junior College this fall and Mike Brown, who will soon enter Seattle University. In retrospect, the H o n o r Camper of the fourth session was Dennis O'Leary, 14, son of Mr. and Mrs. Frauk O'Lenry of St. Edward's par- ish, Seattle. Dennis is no new- comer to CYO, having spout three previous summers in camp. Other Honor Campers includ- ed Shawn Christman, Terence McIver and R o b e r t McIver (brothers), Dennis Luchte, An- dre L'Heureux, Michael Barn- hart, Thomas C a r e y, Edward Smith, Gerry T o d d, Stephen Cote, Thomas Borda, Jeffrey Anderson, Richard Davis and Stephen Sempel. Staff raises in the Order of The Cross were Mike "M. K." Kidd, Barry Ashwell, and Tom "T. Thunder" Greener -- to signifer; and Jerry Shanahan, Grog Welsh, and Larry Wade --to Quaestor. Camper r a i s e s saw Mark Bluhm, Steve Sempel and Jeff Anderson raised to Signifer; and Dennis O'Leary to Quaestor. New camper Order mem- bers were R i c k Schneider, Grog Sempel, Rick Davis, Bill Collins and brothers Kelly and Mark Evans. Flash! There are still almost 50 spaces left to be filled for the sixth (and final) session at CAMP DON BOSCO . . .
