consternation since no one had
a ready answer.
The question: “Who’s the pa
tron saint of athletes?”
The query caused a few blank
stares, another question “is there
such a patron?”, and then a rush
to the reference books.
After a careful search—suc
cess! There indeed i* a patron
saint of athletes—St. Sobastian.
He is also known as the patron
saint of soldiers and protector
against contagious diseases.
Not too much is known about
St. Sebastian since the story of
his life has been clouded a great
deal by legend, according to re
liable sources.
However, it is known that he
was a Roman martyr, having been
put to death on orders of the
Emperor Diocletian in the third
century. The manner of execution
is highly questionable.
St. Sebastion is ragarded as one
of the early defenders of the
faith. He entered the Roman
Army without revealing his faith
or his intent to assist and pro
tect Christians who were under
going terrible persecution.
et
I
I
In the Army, St. Sebastian
foiyid favor with the Emperor
Diocletian and was appointed a
commander of the imperial
bodyguard. AH the while, he
secretly aided the Christians.
Finally, he was discovered and
the emperor ordered his death.
Here is where his story becomes
a bit garbled.
One story goes that the em
peror ordered St. Sebastian to be
shot to death by a troop of arch
ers. They were supposed to have
tied the Saint to a tree, shot him
and left him for dead. But, ac
cording to the story he was not
dead and was nursed back to
health by St. Irene.
his close
Sebastion
the pres­
Upon recovery from
brush with death, St.
professed his faith in
ence of the emperor. Diocletian,
after recovering from the shock
of seeing St. Sebastian still
alive, ordered him to be execut
ed with clubs in the amphithe
ater.
Thl» latter order
wii
carried
out and St. Sebastian died. He
was buried in the catacombs of
Romo. A basilica was erected
over his grave in 367, and in
1611 the present church was
built.
According to authorities, the
story about the attempted execu
tion by piercing with arrows is
considered unhistorical.
Yet this account found great
favor among Italian artists of the
Renaissance who often portrayed
St. Sebastian with arrows in their
works of art.
How did be become known as
the patron saint of athletes?
No clear-cut statement could
be found on the matter. How
ever because of the popular
story of his escape from death
by the archers, he was named
th* patron saint of archers.
Archery was a popular sport in
the age of Roman empire. It grew
in popularity all across Europe
until the invention of gunpowder.
Tying in all these stories i
circumstances together, St.
bastian became known as
patron saint of athletes.

Eagles Split
St. Charles and Grove City
won double-headers in the Sum
mer High School Baseball League
last week to retain their co-lead
ership in the loop.
St. Charles won, 1-0 and 6-2
from Grandview, while Grove
City took Rosary, 12-2 and 7-0.
The second game was forfeited
when the team walked off the
field after its coach was
thumbed out of the game over
a dispute.
The Cardinals used one of their
key weapons—the squeeze play—
to cop the opening game. Mike
Sweeney squeezed home Fred
Blackburn to break up a pitch
ing duel between St. Charles’
Bob Koerner and Grandview’s
Lyn Raney.
Watterson split a twin-bill with
Jonathan Alder. The Eagles fell
in the first game, 6-4, while col
lecting only three hits.
However, they came back in
the second tilt, bashed out 11
hits, and humbled Alder, 13-5.
In other games, North took
two from Arlington, 11-3 and 6-0,
to take over undisputed first
place in the North Division.
Winless Lancaster dropped two
decisions to Eastmoor, 44) and
9-4.

Stable Jets
Open Home
Set July 2
The stable Columbus Jets, who
have been providing many ex
citing late inning victories for lo
cal fans, will return home, July
2, for a four-game series with
Havana.
Single games are scheduled for
July 2-3 and a doubleheader is
on tap for July Fourth.
Miami comes into town the
next day for single games July 5
and 6 and a doubleheader on Ju
ly 7.
The Jets, who find themselves
in a rough International League
race, then take to the road.
One of the main reasons fnr
the Jets’ recent success is Joe
Altobelli, flashy first baseman.
Since he joined the club several
weeks ago the Jets have shown
more poise and confidence.
His graceful fielding has pro
vided thrills for the spectators
and his timely, although rather
weak hitting, has provided key
runs in the Jets’ many one-run
decisions.

As President
Meets Priest
WASHINGTON (NC) Talk
turned to fbotball when a Cath
olic college president called at
the W’hite House to meet Presi
dent Eisenhower. It developed
that the priest and the President
share a common gridiron experi
ence. Both played against the Car
lisle Indians and the great Jim
Thorpe
Msgr. John L. Sheridan, presi
dent of Mount St. Mary’s Col
lege, Emmitsburg, Md., went to
the White House to invite Presi
dent Eisenhower to “drop by”
during commencement week 1958,
when Mount St. Mary's will be
observing its sesquicentennial.
The President was unable to give
an answer at this time. Mount St.
Mary’s College is not far from
President Eisenhower’s home in
Gettysburg, Pa.
Msgr. Sheridan was accompa
nied by Sen. J. Glenn Beall of
Maryland, who was his “friendly
enemy” when the Senator attend
ed the nearby Gettysburg (Pa.)
College and the Monsignor played
on the Mount St. Mary’s eleven.
In the President'* office talk
got around to football games of
1912. Msgr. Sheridan recalled
that the Mount St. Mary's team
on which he played opened that
season against th* Carlisle In
dians and took a 42-to-6 beat
ing. The President recalled that
the West Point eleven on which
he played encountered the In
dians later the same season
and lost 32 to 14.
Even the pre-game warm-up of
fered something of a shock, Msgr.
Sheridan recalled. Mount St.
Marys’ had only 14 men on its
entire squad, while the Indians
sent onto the field four teams of
impressive size. Hopes sank even
lower when it was observed that
Jim Thorpe was kicking the foot
ball the length of the playing
field in practice.
A psychiatrist was examining
a new patient. “Do you ever hear
voices without being able to tell
who is speaking or where the
voice is coming from?”
“Oh, yes, frequently!” replied
the patient.
“And when does this occur?”
“Every time I answer the tele
phone,” the man replied calmly.
