The plays, upon which he has been working for several years, are "Gnadige Fraulein," concerned with an aging vaudevillian; and "The Mutilated," about a pair of woman alcoholics. By KEN KAPPOPORT PHILADELPHIA (AP)-Sight, says Esterina Lione, is a blessing. She knows. She was blind. "Seeing again is like what happens after a soft rain falls— everything is clean and wonderful," says Miss Lione, a nurse dedicated to helping others to regain vision. Ten years ago Esterina began to lose her sight and gradually to withdraw from the everyday world. Two years ago she wsnt blind- Now she has 20-20 vision, thanks to the Delaware Valley Eye Bank, which collects human eyes after donors die and distributes them to hospitals for operations. Miss Lione's new eyes came from two donors. The comely nurse is the first to admit she once was a hermit. "As a teenager I hardly ever went out, or in my later years." That's all changed now, she says. "I've got two boy friends now and I'm going to have some fun out of life." The first time she was able to onjoy her regained sight, Miss Lione says, was last spring —about a year after the second of two successful operations. ,"I took the roundabout way to work," she explained. "I looked at all the flowers, and I even saw the veins on leaves. Imagine that?" She had a malady opthamolo #W MONTGOMERY WARD WHITE WALL TIRE SALE 'i.n p*ui'« iQA, nv trade-in required.

For Esterina, it was like looking through a crumpled wax ball. The world began to grow dark for Miss Lione about 10 years ago after she left Neark, N.J., and came to Hahnemann Hospital here as a surgical nurse. She didn't realize sie was going blind, however, until five years later. "Everything was dull and getting duller week by week," she recalls. "I couldn't figure out why. Finally, she went to an eye specialist at Wills Eye Hospital. They said her sight could be restored through a transplant. Troubled, she found comfort in Philadelphia neighbors—the Samuel Wentzels across the street. "My mother was dead, and my father was sick," she recalled. "The Wentzels took me in and cared for me as if I were their own child." The first of her two operations was scheduled for the spring of 1961. At the time she was virtually blind. Frequent word came from Newark, from her twin brother, Thomas, and her father. The Wentzels never missed a visiting day. It was a worrisome four weeks in the hospital, plagued with some doubtful days and a few cheerless nights, she recalls. The Wentzels finally took her home. Each morning for two weeks she awoke with hope. One day she opened her eyes and saw the clock in her room, 15 feet away. She cried for joy. "Everything was still a little blurry," she recalled. "But I could see! I could see I could see!" She went back to work at Hahnemann and awaited the second operation—on her right eye—it was performed successfully about a year later. She came to work at Wills last September and hopes in four months to get a certificate as a surgical eye nurse. "I feel I must help others," she said. "I don't think I'm doing enough for everybody." Bob Eases Back Into Public Life By JOSEPH E. MOIIBAT WASHINGTON (AP) - Slowly and quietly, Atty. Gen. Robert F. Kennedy is easing back into the public life that was so shatteringly altered by an assassin's bullet three weeks as"He still is the attorney general, the nation's top law enforcement officer, even though he no longer holds the intimate White House role he delighted in when his brother, John F. Kennedy, was president. He attended a groundbreaking ceremony Wednesday — his first official public appearance since his brother's funeral. He didn't say anything. He just stood and watched. The playground is in the heart of the city, and he frequently has shown concern for the city's underprivileged children. He has made no public statement of his plans. He has permitted no news interviews. But the general understanding continues to be that the 38-year- old attorney general will remain on the job as long as President Johnson wants him to. "I'm not worried about Bob one bit," one close friend said. "I'm convinced he'll always be in public life—and that he will get along just as fine on his own as when he was part of that brother team. But as far as I know, he's kept his own counsel about his plans." On chance meetings in the hallway, his characteristic "How are you" in the flat Boston accent sounds the way it used to. The rather shy smile still is there. A few days in Florida and a full week back on the job seem to have restored him to typical excellent physical condition. He attended a Cabinet meeting at the White House Wednesday. 15 E With little kids running around the best thing to try on your piano now and then is furniture polish.
