completed their scheduled

and are entering blythly in- i
to a second and unexpected
week. The extra time here
was made possible through
the activity and personal
generousity of Sasa Fodale,
local seafood dealer.
Mr. Fodale, like everybody
else in Southport, was much
impressed with the , fine,
manly attitude of the boys.
Knowing that the home could
not afford the expense of
keeping them here longer
than a week, Fodale started
the ball to rolling with a personal
donation and then went
around among the Southport
folks and quickly raised enough
money to pay the expenses
of the second week.
Mr. Fodale has also been
generous in donations of seafood
for the table at the-camp.
