By BOB FREIMUTH Capital Time Staff Writer Shes bought a Johnny Cash record about heading to Jackson, getting married and having a hot time. Its not very good music for a convent, laughed Sister Antona Ebo.

But sometimes Ill play it real loud." Sister Antona, who has cared for people in Wisconsin for years, is going to Jackson at the end of Sep- tember to become the Catholic chaplain at the University of Mississippi Medical Center. Many civic leaders say she cant 1 be replaced. I dont think Im irreplaceable here, she said, explaining that part of the reason shes going to Jackson is because sjie feels shes more needed there. Leaving wont be easy, the sister said. Shes had her hand in a myriad of social projects In and around Madison, Including the Madison Urban League, the Madi-son Housing Authority, the NAACP and the Youth Policy and -Law Center.

As a nun in the Sister of Saint Mary, Sister Antona came to Wis- consin in 1967 to serve as an administrator at St. Clare Hospital in Baraboo. In 1971, she became -assistant executive director of the Wisconsin Catholic Health Association. Since 1978, she has been a chaplain at St Marys Hospital Medical Center.

I lovq the beauty, the environment, even the climate. SHIELA REAVESThe Capital Times Sister Antona Ebo Shes had her hand in a myriad of social projects in and around Madison. But now shes decided its time to move on. "I didnt look for this job (in Mississippi), Sister Antona explained She said she met Bishop Joseph Brunini at a National Black Sisters Conference, and several days later she got a call from his office wondering when she could start work in Jackson. At first she thought it was a joke.

Thats where its at, at least for is eager but a little appre-, hensive about going to Jackson. On one of her initial visits, Sister Antona commented to one of her hosts on the beauty of a park located across the street from a Jackson catherdral "Then she told me, a couple of months earlier the Klan had held a big rally there, Sister Antona said are here "meeting the needs of people, she said. In her work, Sister Antona is both philosophical and practical.

"We train ourselves to do things professionally, she said, "but, somehow, the really needy people' do not receive our services "The poor are getting poorer, she said shaking her head. She added that cuts in social programs by the Reagan administration will further hurt the elderly and not the most pleasing news to one of six black nuns to march to Selma, for civil rights in 1965. During of her visits to Jackson, a man in an intensive care unit at the medical center was killed in a gangland slaying by two men toting machine guns. When I go to Jackson, I dont know whats going to happen, she said. Her duties in Jackson wont be much different from what they lems, Sister Antona remains eternally optimistic.

People may say my work is a drop in the bucket, but somebody has to put the first drop in. The needs are known, she said; it will just take a committed response to answer them. I came from a very poor and needy background myself. I havent forgotten where I came from." Many in Madison wont forget where shes been. I hate to take pot shots, she said.

But its a very real world. She said that in talking about problems on the national level were talking about Wisconsin; were talking about Madison.
