Danny Thomas Sees
Prayer Build Hospital
MEMPHIS, Tenn., Feb. 3 (AP).—A $5 million hospital built
by laughter opens here tomorrow, thus making Danny Thomas
the happlegt comedian around.
The (handsome star-shaped structure is St. Jude Research
Hospital.
Many helped in its creation. But in the main the hospital
is the result of years of benefit
shows staged by Mr. Thomas
to raise cash.
Although it will be non-sec
tarian, the hospital will be—in
the best sense of the word—
Danny’s shrine to St. Jude.
It wasn’t originally planned
that way. at least, not by
Danny. When he offered a
shrine to St. Jude back in 1937
in a prayer for success, he had
something much more modest'
in mind.
Danny offered his despera
tion prayer at a time when he
was barely able to scratch up
cheap nightclub stints. A
Roman Catholic, he turned to
St. Jude, patron of hopeless
causes.
Riches Pour In
Success came with such a
rush, the outpouring of riches
was so lavish that a modest
shrine was clearly not in order.
But what?
The Lebanese comedian with
the noble nose was still ponder
ing when he mentioned his
problem to the late Samuel
Cardinal Stritch about 10 years
ago.
The Cardinal seized the op- i
portunity. He wasn’t vague '
about shrines. A hospital would i
be a grand shrine, he told
Steelworkers Meeting
To Map Contract Aims
PITTSBURGH, Feb. 3 (AP).
—Officials of the United Steel
workers Union open a three
day conference Monday to
map proposals for thef coming
contract negotiations with the
steel industry.
The gathering of the union’s
executive board and wage pol
icy committee is one of the
earliest ever in advance of
negotiations.
The executive board meets
Monday and Tuesday. The
wage policy committee convenes
Wednesday.
What proposals the union
will formulate probably won’t
be known until negotiations
actually get under way. In the
past, officials have announced
broad objectives following the
wage committee meeting but
have declined to elaborate on
specific demands.
There is a general opinion
among steel people that the
union will press for improved
fringe benefits and greater job
security, rather than high
wages.
There also has been specula-1
tion that USW may try to get'
PENCILS FOR PAKISTAN
Bashir's Visit Spurs
Students' Fund Drive
Pakistani children will soon
get a gift of the first tools of
literacy—pencils and paper—as
a result of the visit to the
United States last fall of that
eloquent, semi-literate camel
driver, Bashir Ahmad.
The funds for the Pencils
for-Pakistan campaign S3OO
so far—were collected by the
students of the James Madison
High School, in Vienna, Va.
Bashir came to the United
States at the invitation of Vice
President Johnson. On a visit
to the Fairfax County school,
he told the students of their
good fortune in getting an edu
cation, something he had
missed.
Started Campaign
The students were so im
pressed they started a Pencils
for-Pakistan campaign.
According to a report from
the school to the Vice Presi
dent, the money has been used
to buy 10 gross of pencils, 10
gross of white chalk, two gross
of pastel chalk, two gross of
erasers, six dozen sharpeners
and 1,300 writing pads.
In about a month, the ma-

Danny, and Memphis would be
a fine location. Work for it, he
said, and you can do it.
So there stands the hospital,
shining white. The dedication,
said Danny, will Involve ‘‘what
St. Jude has done for me and
what I’m trying to do for him."
In adition to the hospital,
Danny founded the American
Lebanese -Syria n Associated
Charities (ALSAC). It will pay
St. Jude’s operating expenses—
Isl million a year.
Research Mission
The hospital’s research mis
sion: Find a cure for leukemia
and catastrophic children’s
diseases. Patients there are
now 36 beds—will be treated
free.
Speakers at the dedication
will include Tennessee Gov. Bu
ford Ellington and Senator
Estes Kefauver (Democrat of
Tennessee).
It’s probably the first affair
involving St. Jude Hospital in
which Danny won’t have much
to do.
His main duty will be unveil
ing the’ life-size statute of the
“forgotten” saint, which stands
on a pedestal at the front en

school in Pakistan to be se
lected by Bashir and the Pakis
tan ministry of education.
Elton A. Bonner, principal of
James Madison, said the idea
for the drive came from a
teacher, Miss Eleanor Mc-
Mahon, who has traveled
abroad and became interested
in Pakistan.
Overshot Quota
With Mr. Bonner’s approval,
she asked for contributions in
school homerooms, setting a
quota of SIBO.
“We overshot it by about
double,” Mr. Bonner said.
He said the school also hopes
to send more than 6,000 text
books, no longer used by the
school system, to Pakistan if
shipment can be arranged.
In addition, a collection of
children’s books has been
started at James Madison and
some nearby elementary
schools.*
Another school, the Richard
Russell School, in Georgia, has
sent SIOO for educational pur
poses in Pakistan.
