Junior C.D.A. Unit Initiates 15 Members Fifteen new members were initiated into the Junior Catholic Daughter's at St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Athens. They were Annette McDermott, Kathy Harrigan, Linda McDonald, Pam Carberry, Jill Woroblewski, Patricia Carberry, Barbara Boll, Connie Kunkel, Kathy McDermott, Mary Ann Gabriel, Mary Ann Biasi, Marie Morse, Jo Ann Hughes, Sandra Gal-leek and Paula Lombard. The initiation consisted of three parts. During the first part Rev. Andrew Brogus quizzed the girls on religion; during the second portion, Mrs. Marian Ballenstedt counselor, tested their knowledge of civics and government. The final portion was designed to test the girls for good sportsmanship. For this the three older juniors, Terry Wolf, Judy Hughes and Ann Marie Wolf had devised humorous and ingenious stunts by which all inductees proved that they were worthy of membership in the organization. The Junior Catholic Daughter program is designed to assist girls from 7 to 17 to become better citizens, and better versed in their religion. Mrs. Ballenstedt reviewed the aims and motto during the initiation ceremony. It was announced that a swimming party will be held on May 10 from 7:30 until 9 p.m.
