She's Wife, Mother, Student-And Quite Busy BACK TO SCHOOL — Mrs. Leopold Hoppe does her homework. She Is a student at Ottawa University, resuming her college work after acquiring a husband and six children. (Herald Photo by Lois Simth) A goodly number of Ottawa Uni- ersity students have gone home or Easter. One student, Mrs. Leopold loppe, 409 S. Elm, is one of hem. The similarity, however, ends there as Mrs. Hoppe is at home, not with parents, brothers and sisters, but with her hus- >and, Father Leopold Hoppe, and ter six children ranging in age 'rom high schooler pupils down :o pre-schoolers. Mrs. Hoppe is taking a full schedule of classes at the college and will attend summer school this year as she did last summer. An elementary education major, she plans to graduate a year from June. "I would like to teach in order that we may be able to send our children to college," she says. She states frankly that such a goal is impossible without a second salary in the family. "Like many other girls, I in terrupted my college career to marry," Mrs. Hoppe recalls. "Then the babies came along and there always seemed to be a number of reasons why I could not continue. I wouldn't try it now except that my mother, Mrs. Mary Jane Chapin, is visiting us to lend her assistance. "John and Ted are in high school, Jane and Alice in the grades, leaving only Mary, 4, and Mark, 3, at home. They love being with grandma after they kiss me good-bye in the mornings." Mrs. Hoppe says her husband encourages her because he knows she is doing what she real ly has wanted for a long time The experience is not only i practical venture but also one that relates her to the world outside and to young people. "I find myself being a mamma n the classroom and getting riled at things I do not approve. There s quite a difference in the atti- udes and outlook of mature persons and those only a short time out of high school." The "mature" student reports hat all the children help with :he work, even the two youngest. The older children have a tendency to treat her going to school as a joke but will doubtless appreciate it more later. Airs. Hoppe says she is up at 6:30 has classes in the morning liours but remains at the library to study until about 3:30 p.m. When she gets home she gets the evening meal and does housework. The older children have their desks upstairs so she studies at the dining table. What is the hardest thing about her dual role? "Getting all of the reading done. I had seven books to read in one course, "Man in Society," which is a survey course treating of political science, history and sociology." Mrs. Hoppe says physical science is her hardest subject. Her grades for the first semester were all B-plus or A's, except for this subject. The Hoppes also have another project going — the remodeling of the parsonage kitchen. Right now it is torn up and the family is eating in the parish house next to the church. This is just a minor project. It will only last four weeks. The couple has one son, Frankin Davis, Arvada, Colo., who with his wife and three children, plans to be present for the reception. Another grandson lives Reception For Golden Anniversary Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Davis, 937 S.
