Mr. Angel CollegeBy Finn J.D. John

Adelhelm Odermatt is not, of course, an Irish name. And the portly, jovial Swiss monk who bore it had not a drop of Irish blood in him, so far as he knew.
But he had come to visit this group of Irish Catholics to make his pitch for a donation to help save his monastery from an untimely foreclosure after a loan had been called in. And when in Rome, one did as the Romans did, right? So when he stepped up to speak, Father Odermatt tried his best to look Celtic as he introduced himself — as “Father O’Dermatt.”

Rust diseaseBy Kym Pokorny
Charmingly warm weather coaxed roses into bloom early this year, which means dealing with the usual diseases and pests earlier, too.

Track girlsBy Cliff Richardson
FINN ROCK: Everyone going in understood the strength of the Triangle Lake Boys and Girls Track and Field teams. The Lakers held true to form, winning both the Boys and Girls Team First Place Trophies, last Saturday, May 16th.
The 1A Special District 5 Championship Track Meet was held at the exceptional Aaron and Marie Jones Community Track venue. The McKenzie Community Track Committee and its dedicated volunteers pulled off another outstanding event.

Holstrom crewBy Finn J.D. John
Of the 80 American Army aviators who flew the Doolittle raid in April of 1942, at least seven were former Oregonians. Actually, with only one or two exceptions, all of them were former Oregonians, having been stationed at the Pendleton air base before preparations for the raid commenced; but for seven of them, the relationship with the Beaver State ran deeper than that.
