(AP) Sarge is going home to his native Alabama and it won't be quite the same at St. Luke's Day School here. Retired Army M. Sgt. Elmer H. Ingram probably has wiped more noses and tied more shoes than any other person connected with the school. When Share was ill last autumn, mail to the hospital was clogged with crusty creations of colored paper and long phonetic messages in crayon. The sky over the school was thick with innocent petitions shooting heavenward, one of whicn said: "Please make Sarge well: he's our best friend." Ingram has been sexton at St. Luke's Episcopal Church since 1952 and with his late wife, Ruth Stafford Ingram, cared for the church and for the school and children. RETIRING It's another April now and Sarge is retiring. When the children heard the news, they gathered on the playground in little knots of common sadness. "What's we do for a principal when Sarge goes away?" a child asked. "Is Sarge really, truly leaving?' "Maybe he's going to have his tonsils out!" Sarge always knows what children m e a n to say even if Graves Ordained As Auxiliary Bishop LITTLE ROCK (AP) - The Rt. Rev. Msgr. Lawrence O Graves was ordained auxiliary bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese ot Little Roc 1 ' «·-=''a by Bishop Albert L. r"etcher. The diocese encompasses the state of Arkansas. Bishop Graves will serve as auxiliary to Bishop Fletcher. Thirty-two Catholic archbish ops and bishops attended. Bish op consecrators were Bisho] Lawrence M. Defalco of Amaril lo. Tex., and Auxiliary Bisho Warren L. Boudreaux of Lafay *Hr T * they don't know how to say it well. But more important, he knows what they need to hear He knows all about the flag anc they don't know how to say it all about fishing (and he won'i "tell" if you climb the red bud tree.) If you're a five-year-old boy in a world of lady teachers, its a mighty comforting thing to have a real soldier to talk to Or if you're a fi year-old gir without front teeth, it's tcrrihlj important to know someone who'll tell you that you're pretty every day. SARGE FIXES THINGS If your knee is hurt, Sarge wil 'fix it;' if your feelings arc mrt. Sarge knows why. If you eacher is late in the morning Sarge will be there: if you mother is late in the afternoon Sarge will wait with you. I ·our father can't come to tht Valentine's Day luncheon, yot ;et to sit at Sarge's table. It probably would surprise tin day school children to know tha Sarge had other things to do be sides befriend them. The dutie of a sexton are myriad, involv ng not only carying for th physical plant but knowin vhere things are kept an mowing who needs them an when to have them ready. This isn't easy in the life of busy parish. You have to kno\ everything. It's a lot more tha mowing the eccentricites of th furnance, it's knowing wher :he "good" dishes are and whe ;o use them, its knowing whetl er the vestments are clean an ivho the accolytes will be at o'clock communion. THEY'LL MISS HIM You have to help the hig school kids with the Shro\ Tuesday Carnival: and for tl Christmas Sunday School Part you disguise yourself in the Ion white beard and the Santa Clai suit and all the children holle: "Hi. Sarge!" Who else will ever give y Koolaid when you've eaten ti much school paste? Who w sand the splinters off the se saw? Who will take the teth ball in when it rains? And w' will bury the goldfish when does when Sarge is gone? sting of Eddie Swcaney, Dan Pinkerton and Ferry Free- e. coached by Dwayne Webb, ok first place, with the Hunts- lie team second.
