Modeling Addition to uniform them are Molly Elrod, left, and Lydia Fann. Benton--A new addition to the uniforms worn by Our Lady of Fatima School students this year are sweatshirts. The latter are adorned with the new school emblem. The idea of school sweatshirts was first suggested by parents who were concerned with the high cost of the sweaters, which are presently an op- tional part of the uniform. "The sweatshirts have proven to be just as warm, more comfortable, and much more durable than the sweaters as well as being about half the price. The design of the school emblem was the result of much prayer by several parents and a local artist. When it was decided that a dove emblazoned on the cross would best depict Our Lady's message at Fatima, this decision was quickly confirmed when the artist was found to have already sketched this exact thought as a suggestion to the group. Sweatshirts and other items on which the school emblem can be transferred may be purchased at the Sports Shop in Military Plaza here.
