Mother Was Up In The Air
HE SUN was shining brightly
on the morning of March 4, 1950.
The entire Kelly family arose early
and went to Mass. This was the day
awaited for so long. Today Mrs.
Kelly was going to ily to Ireland to
have one last visit with her own dear
mother, and we were all rather
nervous about it. After Mass, Mother
went into the sacristy to ask the priest
for his blessing, for her Irish faith
would not let her risk such a long'
journey without God's help. .
. Mother was busy giving orderspto
everyone. She was so excited she' al-
most forgot her passport. "Madeline,
are lyou sure you know how to fix
roasting chicken? Remember not to
leave it in too long." "Denny, be a
good boy and do what you are told.
Be sure to do your homework and get
to bed early. Eat your cereal in the
morning and don't take an hour to do
so." "Nancy, you help Madeline with
the dishes and the beds." "Joe and
Tom, don't stay out too late and hang
up your clothesg don't leave anything
After details were taken care of,
we started on the trip to New York.
When we got to the International Air-
port we inquired where we should go
to await the arrival of the plane that
was to go to Ireland. The porter
looked at us and said, "I'm sorry but
'ly Madeline Kelly, '51
you're at the wrong airport. You
want to go to the International Field
at La Guardia Airport.f' You see,
what the travel agent failed to ex-
plain to us was that La Guardia Air-
port is divided into two parts: the
International Field and the National
Field, which is most often referred
to simply as "La Guardia."
We were then thirty miles outside
of New York. We had to go back
through the other side of the city.
Finally in desperation we chased a
taxicab for about six blocks. At last
the driver stopped. I 'suppose he
thought we were crazy to be hailing
a taxi when we were in an automo-
bile, but we explained our predica-
ment. Smiling he said, "Follow me."
We did, and believe me, I never knew
there were so many small back streets
in the city of New York.
Although we were all worrying
whether or- not Mother would make
her plane, everything worked out for
the best. We were so afraid of miss-
ing the plane that we forgot the fact
that mother was going to fly.
When we arrived at the airport we
were not allowed to go near the plane,
but we could see Mother 'board it. We
knew now how Mother must have felt
when she left her parents to come to
