Miss Maloney is one of seven Methodist-Kahler School of Nursing students assigned temporarily to the Chicago hospital as part of their training. "The county morgue is just across the street from the hospital, Miss Maloney wrote. "Sixty doctors stood in the street as 22 ambulances came in steady for four hours. They would pronounce the victims dead or injured — one way to the morgue, the other way to the hospital." Miss Maloney was assigned to go into the morgue and administer first aid or whatever comfort could be provided for parents as they identified their children. Now she is back in the hospital, where 85 are being treated for burns or injuries from jumping. Miss Maloney will resume her schooling at Rochester and become a registered nurse in September.

ICY TO DISCOMFORT An icy wind in cahoots with near - zero temperatures this morning brought a hustle to Ausin children on their way to school and made the few adult pedestrians scurry also. Cars sputtered and coughed along Main street with some of the drivers hunched over the wheel peeking out a small bare spot in the frost covered windshield. Traffic crept for the most part with drivers apparently aware that many motorists were feelig their way along instead of driving. Temperature at 8 a.m. this morning at THE HERALD building was four above but the real culprit is the hone chilling steady wind whipping at overcoats and cuffing at defenseless ears. A bright prospect for the rest of the day was a big friendly sun. Police Chief George R o o p e warned motorist to keep windshields clear and reminded that driving with a frosted glass is a traffic offense. Ground to Be Broken for New Church SARGEANT, Minn. — Groundbreaking services for the new ?/on Evangelical United Brethren Chdrch will be held at 10:45 a.m. Sunday. The Rev. Edward G. Stevens, pastor, will turn the first shovel- ful of earth. Construction is scheduled to start soon for the only church In the village of Sargeant. The exact year in which the church was organized is not known. The late Phillip Heydt, a charter member, related the information that a Sunday School wa,s started In the former Dist, 113, schoolhouse in 1884, but the local records go back only to 1921 when the church received its first resident pastor. New Families Attended The families of Charles Meyer and Phillip Heydt moved Into this community in the fall of 1876, Their chlHren attended Sunday School conducted by Grover and Cora Chapman, in the Prodahl school, Dist. 114, until the Evangelical Association Sunday School was started in 1884. During these early years, itinerate elders brought them the gospel message several times a year. The Rev. L. Passer is believed to be the first regular minister tc serve the Sargeant, congregation. The church was built in 1899 during the pastorate of Rev. G. Duebendorf at a cost of $2,400. It was dedicated on Oct. 22, 1899 by Bishop T. Bowman. The first Christmas celebration was held on Dec. 24, 1R99 and the first reviv I meetings were held from Jan. 924, in 1900 with four converts. During the pastorate of the Rev. H. C. Schmidt, the German language was retired in favor of English. Repaired In 1915 In 1915 the church was repaired and a basement was constructed at a cost of $1,000. The bell was purchased in 1914, by the Ladies Aid. In 1920 a new piano replaced the old organ and electric lights were installed. In the winter of 1920, during the pastorate of the late Rev. A. H. Nauman, revival meetings were held with fruitful results. It waa in that year that Sargeant petitioned the Minnesota Conferece for a fulltime pastor. The parsonage was also built that year at a cost of over $5,000. At present there are 130 members of the church with around 125 enrolled in Sunday School.
