PAGE TWO BLYTHEVrM,E, (ARK.) COURIER NKWS School That Once Taught Babe Ruth, Al Jolson to Go Out of Existence BALTIMORE, Jun 30, W)—The* house that built Babe RulU and turned many en orphan and lough- Je into good, solid Americans passes out of existence today. St. Mary's Industrial School Is closing Us doors. For 84 years—since 1866—the Catholic-sponsored school 1ms taken Into Its grey walls'boys who were homeless or tabbed as potential lawbreakers. But because the state has made other arrangements for its Juvenile problems, financial atd has been withdrawn. Two of its more noted products blazed their names across the nation and became figures of speech in the a ports and entertainment worlds. George Herman Ruth entered the school when he was seven because his father, a saloonkeeper, thought his environment around his place wasn't too good. Young Ruth was listed as an Incorrigible, but in later years you could never get the fathers at the school to agree that he was. He stayed there until he was 13 and his baseball career was in full blossom. Babe Impressed The school must have mnde an Impression on the Babe. Father Albert, who knew him at the school, said Ruth once told him, when he was at the heights of his glory: "We're all In life to do good. And T hope that when I die I will have lived so I can help the boys of America to live straighter and cleaner lives." In the Babe's wille was a stipulation giving 10 per cent of his estate to a foundation for the "kids of America." And there's Al Jolson. He visited the school last September for the first time in about 50 years. Jolson, Too '"That's the yard where I used to play," Jolson told his wife then. "When was that? About the time of the Spanish-American War. "I was a bad boy, then, but not too bad. T had run away from home. I gave my brother's name, he was supposed to be the black aheep of the family. After a few months, my parents came from Washington and took me home." All the hired help has been dismissed, with the exception of old Charlie Carter. OFF TO A SLOW START—Sgt.
