African Trip RecQunted By IsdbeNe Pearson
By MARGARET GRABAM
Isafcdle I>earsoa, owner of
IsabeOe's Beauty Strap, recently returned from an exciting mooth of touring Africa
with a stop-over at Washington. D.C.
Mrs. Pearson went to Africa to visit Rosemary Cbnlan,
who is froin Keno, and is now
working with Catholic W^fare under the Most Reverend
Kugene Butler, Bishop of
iMombasa. Kenya. Miss ConIan is the sister of Tim Cbnlan, who Mrs. Pearson has
been sponsoring at the seminary in the Pontifical Cbllege
of Josephemmi in Ohio.
Before departing for Africa,
she spent a few days in Wasta-
ington, I>.C., where Senaitor
Catuion arranged a tour for
her through the White House
and the Capitol buildings.
While in W'asMngton, Ifrs.
Pearson visited with Father
Paschal Kinsel. OFM, who
was her tour dk^ector on the
trip she made to the Holy
Land m ISeS. He took her
through the F^«Dcucan MOBastery where the Holy Land oi
America is located.
Isahelle stated that it was
just what the name imfdied—
an exact replica of all the
shrines found in the Holy
Land.
She said, "I feK that I was
back there again, ev«-y4hiB|g
is identical even to their location. Many of the holy shrines
are under ground and that is
how they were at the monastery." She went on to state
that sev«ral other shrines are
duplicated, including the grotto of Lourdes and even the
oatacombs.
The highlight of her visit in
Washington was the tour she
took throu^ the National
Catholic Shrine.
The trav^er started ttiat her
first thought as she stepped
inside the door ot the enormous cathedral and saw the

lirs. Pearson departed for
Africa on the 8th of October
aai after a short stop-over in
Rome arrived in Nombassa
on the 13th.
She was met I^ Miss Oonlan and spent the next week
visiting at tlie mission and
traveiiae into the busy country with her to see if any of
the near-by tribes needed any
help.
Aocordii^ to Kfrs. Pearson,
the poverty is overwttetanJDg
and. . ."some <rf the iaconveiiteaces they live with would
absoluteiy throw us. The dedic£^on of the missioaaries is a
t>eautiful thing to witness,"
She went on to aagr, "awl the
fact that they have to start
from scratch with everything,
including teaching the Africans to hamfie a hammer,
makes the mlvtinn and surroutMhng buihfings all the
more marvehiiB."

by a giUde carrying a highpow»^ rifle and were told
they cotdd ncrt come doiwn until the neiot nHxning. It soon
became evident why. It was
situated by a water bi^ and
the nigtit was spent watching

a variety of amaller game as

She noted that the hotel was

"Hiis we^ marks the beginning of the third week in Las

Soapbar Month." Las Vegans
everywtiere are responding to
the {dea frmn our men in Vietnam for soap.
When the American troops
first entered Vietnam a little
over two years ago, many
Vietnamese pteople had never
seen a bar of soap. Children
and people of all ages were
dying daily from infection in
even a tiny scratch. Today,
through the Marine Corps Qvic Action Program, these people are healthier and have
pride in themselves.
The Civic Action Program
also provides sewing kits,
midwife kits, school kits, medical and hygienic supplies.
And it was discovered recently tiiat tt>e item most in demand which produces the
most immediate results is
soap.
Gradually, as a result of
this program, the Vietnamese
are learning to trust our men.
In return they do the only
things they can to show
their gratitude. When they
find the VC are massing outside of a village, they tell our
men. who are then able to
send for reinforcements. T^ey
also destroy deadly "booby
traps" set by the enemy.
