Village Pastors Meet To Organize Ministers’ Alliance
Volume II. ' ROBBINS, ILLINOIS. SATURDAYr JANUARY 4, 1958 6th Year—No. 1
By Gladys Selmon
To little Alfred Jackson. Chief
Ernest Hunt is not only a hero,
but a grand guy, as well. The
Chief saved ’Alfred from what
in all probability, would have
been an icy, watery death. And,
Alfred is properly very grateful
—and so are the citizens of the
vilk.'ge. It happened in this way:
Chief Hunt was standing in
front of the police station in
conversation with Mr. Flarzell
Moore, one of the village trus
tees when a little boy came run
n'ng up shouting that another
1'ttle boy had broken thru the
ice in the pond. The Chief was
engrossed in the conversation,
paid no attention to what the
boy was saying until he heard
yells from the direction of the
pond. He at once started run
ning to the pond and as he
neared it, could see what was
happening, he started pulling
off his coat and cap, reaching
the scene, he plunged right into
the icy pond. Breaking the ice
in front of him with his bare
hands, he swam out about 55
feet to reach the lad who was
all but exhausted trying to keep
afloat in the ice-filled pond and
brought him ashore.
This was on Friday, December
27. The boys had been sledding
that morning and this boy had
run into a thin place and had
broken through. His companion
could not help him, so he ran
for help.
Chief Hunt and Alfred were
taken to the hospital for shock
and exposure. They were given
injections and told to stay in
! bed for 24 hours. During that
period the Chief operated the
department from the bed.
A Catholic Church
in Robbins Area
Soonto beaReality
Saint Peter Claver Church of
Robbins and Crestwood is fin
ally becoming a reality. After
many years of prayer and peti
ent petitioning, the Catholics of
this vicinity will soon be able
to attend their own House of
God. We know that the conven
ience and closeness of this source
of God’s grace will make our
Catholics in this community
better and more fervent soldiers
of Christ.
Next Sunday, the 5th of Jan
uary. at 3:30 p.m,, we are going
to have an official ground-break
ing ceremony. The site of the
church, of course, is Claire blvd.
and 141st street. We certainly
hope you will be present to
help us pray to God for the suc
cess of our venture. Your pres
ence will help other Catholics
feel stronger and more willing
to work for Christ’s Church.
Father Howard J. Doherty.
The Thomas and Davis fami
lies wish to express their sincere
thanks to their many friends for
all the acts of kindness shown
us and the cards of sympathy
sent to us in the hours of our
recent bereavement in the death
of our loved one — Mrs. Essie

May Davis.
Our deepest appreciation for
the many phone calls, the cards
and flowers. We also wish to
thank the Family Club and the
Friendship Social clubs for their
donations. May. God bless and
keep all of you.
