more or less usual. But for Miss

unusual experience.
As a member of the volunteer
staff on the Church of All Na

Rendlesham has varied duties,
one of them being the supervis
ing the cooking of lunch for
some 120 children who attend
daily activities at the church
which serves the heart of The
Bowery section of the metro
polis.
This coming weekend, Mr.
and Mrs. Rollin Rendlesham go
to New York to spend a week
with their daughter who plans
to show them the inside sights
of the famed Bowery, as well
as the better known highlights
of the city.
The Rendleshams are active
in St. Paul’s Episcopal Church.
With Polio on the way out,
the National Foundation for In

In addition, states President
Basil O’Connor, the Foundation
will expand its activities to
take in all virus diseases, ar
thritis, diseases of the central
nervous system and the congen
