Everyone has goods assets resources and talents of some ktnd No one
cantruthfully and honestly lament That God has neolected htm tn Hts dxstrtbutton

releaseto serve manktnd The questlonts not W hat you don thave but rather
What you do have
The songfulbtrd cannot keep tts song Its very breast would burst tf tt dtd
The flower cannot keep tts fragrance and beauty the heart of the flower would

REVEREND JOHN O ROURKE
Leta Mae Hadley, '52 President,
Valedictorian, and Editor ofthe IMMAC-
ULATA, on February 14, enteredthe No-
vitiate ofthe Sisters ofSaint Mary, at our
Lady of Victory College, Fort Worth.
THE BETTER PART
The roads of life, invitingly,
Beckoned to a youthful heart.
A future lay dark, uncertain--
To fulfill its destined part.
The sheen of worldly pleasure
Cast a glow entrancingly,
Yet somehow died in the dimness
of an eye that failed to see.
For a sudden peace had stolen
Into the silence of that heart,
A peace that made a youthful mind
Long for "a better part. "
No din of earthly glamour,
No false sheen of passing time,
Could satisfy a pain that longed
To possess that peace sublime.
For the King of Kings invitingly
Had beckoned to that heart--
And an eager soul enrantured
Had found "the better part. "
Sister Mary Vincent Otto, S.S.M

She IS the glrl from Austr1a" Everywhere I went ln A M I they whxspered thxs the Slsters as
well as the gxrls I was not supposed to hear lt but I could not help lt But that was only ln the be
glnnlng Now everybody knows me and I am an A M I glrl just llke all the others Stlll there are
many that do not really know how I happened to come all the way from Austrla to Texas And th1s IS
what I am go1ng to tell you here
A blt more than a year ago I was a llttle student 1n a llttle school ln a lxttle town Ihad lots of
frlends lots of fun but llttle excltement untll I heard about the scholarshlps to Amerlca They were
based on an exchange of students between Austrxa and the Unlted States and allowed the wlnners to
l1ve for a full year wlth an Amerncan fam1ly hke thelr own chxld, and to study at an Amerlcan hlgh
school Darlngly I applled for It never even dream1ng that I mlght be one of the lucky wlnners
Oulte some txme after I had fllled out the flrst applrcatxon blanks and sent a currlculum to the Ex
change Offmce xn Vlenna I was summoned to Vlenna for a httle examlnatxon It really was no exam
just a conversatlon about myself my lnterests and ablhtles Th1s was the flrst real step to Amerxca
Then came a long per1od of waxtlng, fllllng out further blanks, and walttng agaln In June I had
the greatest surprlse of my Ixfetlme It was a letter that told me that I and Z9 other young Austrxans
had been selected from a crowd of 600 to represent Austrla ln the States'
Then lt went fast, passport tram tlcket shlp txcket And off we went leavmg behmd all our loved
ones and our country but looklng forward to thls so promxsxng year The tmp was wonderful' Sw1tzer
