Each day, in their Morning Offering, they me~n it when they offer God all the i r "prayers; works, joys lind ~:; ferings." The "bus party" is one attempt at somewhat riotous fun. When it is planned from' a boys' echool, it progresses something like this: Some sympathetic and influential soul in a nearby (but" DOt· too nearby) :girls' academy ."contacted, to see' if the girls would like to have a party if,' we ,furnish the boys. ' .'The' answer to this is usually • ~'''yes,'' 'sOirie'times hesitant:; 80metimes enthusiastic, deper'i'd:::'" ing on whether or not the bus party's reputation has gone befIore. The next step is to charter a bus, figuring out the cost per head, the cost of food en route, and so on. Then, with the cost in mind, notice is given to those eligible for the trip, in this case the senior Sodalists, and sometimes a few juniors, each of whom pays his own way. . _' -'.

It is not, however the man who gives the most who will receive the greatest reward. B depends upon tile motivation of our giving.

By Rev. Joseph T. McGloin, 8.J. It might be interesting to tell you about a form of sport known as a "bus party." These parties were indulged in by the 80dalists of Regis High School, Denver, over a period of some 10 years. Once teen-agers see the genuine, ~arefree f~n th~y can ~ave Games alternate with dances, m somethmg like a bus with a little spontaneous and party," they're more eon" unspontaneous amateur enter­
