Fatherhood jnsf" comes naturally. It Is all unofficial. You vralt In hospital anteroom until » nurse steps out and murmurs In an antiseptic voice, "Well, you're a father now." •'•'.: Simple! • But godfathers Is another matter entirely. It Is official. And It takes place in a church, where' the Lord can overhear any pledges you make to fend for a child that Isn't your own. Yes, being a godfather Is much more responsible and selective act lhan merely being a father. Fathers just happen. Godfathers create themselves deliberately. ; If all this sounds a bit smug, It is because I am pitching a penny for the proud mil neglected status of godfatherhood, Into which I entered recently. ' Some, two years ago hTances and I moved Into a tremendous housing project on the East Side of Manhattan holding some 35,000 people. The life insurance company that built it ruled out clogs, but announced it welcomed children. . Tile idea probably was that dogs rarely grow up and bviy life Insurance policies but children some- limes do. Anyway the tenants Joyously took the company at Its word. Within a year the place was nlck : named *'lhe hatchery," and a man going to work had to beat his way past a. solid wall of diaper service salesmen. Now there are more babies around than television sets. . A young neighbor couple had a daughter, Nina. We'fcll in love with her and they said we could be her godparents. Months went by and nothing happened. "People are always saying we can be godparents to their kids" " complained to Frances. "But nothing ever comes or it. What am I supposed to do—nothing? 1 feel as useless as a Kentucky colonel in Vermont" Well, word got rjack to Nina's mother. The next Sunday she frocked the child In. something pink .and off we went to the church It was a christening ceremony. Discover! "Odd Ffellnj" And It was then at last I was sworn In as .a real 24-karat godfather, it Is an odd feeling. For the first time I understood wh> women weep at a wedding. I felt that way as Nina, laughing kept jumping up nml down whll the immortal words were read over 'it Iron Lung for 20 fiats, Youth Finally of Poliomyelitis PITTSBURGH, Oct. 18. W— Oil- *>t Holdren died yesterday of In- anllie paralysis after seven years n an Iron lung. Tiie 20-year-old Holdrcn was her heedless head. But she quieted down and listened gravely as the minister. lifted her, doused her blonde locks with water—and welcomed her to Jesus. Afterwards the minister assured me that a godfather held no honorary title, but had real duties and shouldn't enter Into his condition lightly or thoughtlessly—as fathers have been known to do. A week or t»o later he dropped by to see how 1 was fulfilling rny role. Luckily, he caught me at home reading a good book. I told him that now we called Nina the "Little Christian." and he looked pleased. Now I fret about my goddaughter all. the time. They say there Is nothing like children to keep you young. I find there is nothing like a godchild to make a man older— from worrying at all life's perils around her. But It's !un to he a vice-president father, a "stand-In daddy." The hardest thing, however, is to keep from wishing that Nina's papa will break his leg—so that I can do more for her.
