STRICTLY BUSINESS by MefraMtft "Account of htm coming along we got a 10*inch screen!" 15 Tons Petrified Wood For West Bend Grotto Rev. L. H. Greving, recently appointed pastor of St. Peter and Paul's Catholic church at West Bend is now priest in charge of the Grotto of the Redemption. He returned recently from St. Philips, Mont., where he gathered aproximately 15 tons of petrified wood which is being used to complete the Grotto of Bethlehem. The Grotto of Bethlehem has been under construction since spring. Father Greving said, "I hope to order the statuary tor the Grotto this fall so that it will be here for the tourist season next year. This statuary comes from Carrara, Italy." Constructing Fence Father Greving is the priest who was assistant to the late Father P. M. Dobberstein for eight years before his death. Father Greving is directing the completion of the Grotto according to Father Dobberstein's plan. At the present time he is directing the construction of an ornamental fence • around the lake just north of the Grotto. The bank of the lake, has been sloped some 15 to 20 feet by Eddie Dorweiler, West Bend. He plans to landscape the area around the lake and hopes to sel up a sprinkling system in the park within the.fence. The water will be pumped from the lake by means of an electric jet pump. Recorded Explanation For the past two years a thorough explanation of the various parts of the shrine has been given over a public address system set up in the Grotto. The explanation can be heard every hour on the hour. He recorded this on tape and as the tourists are^ taken through by a guide, the % latter can set the tape recorder into operation by remote control. Since Father Greving returned to West Bend, he has recorded soft organ music and chimes which furnish beautiful background music between explanations. Matched Interior When asked what he considers the finest accomplishment at West Bend within the last year, he replies, "Undoubtedly the finishing of the art work in St. Peter and Paul's Church is best." This artistic task was performed by Shettler Studios of Sioux City. The workmen did a remarkable piece of work in matching the complete interior of the church with the painting in the sanctuary which was painted by Father Dobberstein's brother in 1949. MOWER A. B.
