Los Angeles (NC) -- Adeline Coronado, a registered nurse, a midwife and a Los Angeles Lay Mission Helper, has come home for a rest. For the last nine years she has been in East Africa where she founded a 30-bed cottage hospital and personally delivered 1,500 ba- bies. For all her accomplishments, Miss Coronado is casually un- assuming; her character conveys cheerfulness, kindness and com- petence. "I was at Igoji, a market vil- lage on the slopes of Mount Ken- ya," she recounted. "The place was beautiful. "The people were Wameru, quiet, jovial and charitable. You can learn much from them. You would see how they helped each other, little ones helping other little ones -- a wonderful atmos- phere for an alien." In addition to infant and matern- ity care, St. Anne's Hospital at Igoji, founded by Adeline and her companion Lay Mission Helper Patricia Speidel, also provides a clinic for adults and children. "We saw about 1,200 patients a year at huge clinics three days a week. The patients had malaria, bronchitis and intestinalparasites, mainly," Miss Coronado recount- ed. Her first hitch as a Lay Mission Helper came soon after she fin- ished studies at St. Vincent's Col- lege of Nursing here. She read an appeal for nurses for Africa by the late Msgr. An- thony Brouwers, founder of the Los Angeles Lay Mission Helpers. "I'd always thought about the missions," she said, "so I went." Her first station was Chala in what is now Tanzania. She served with the Medical Mission Sisters at Our Lady of the Mountains Hospital in an isolated plateau. After finishing this three-year hitch, she came home and enroll- ed at Santa Fe (N.M.) Catholic Maternity Institute to become a midwife, then returned to the Lay Mission Helpers. This time she was sent to the diocese of Meru, Kenya, and was dispatched with Patricia Speidel to establish the hospital at Igoji. "We did all normal deliveries. If any promised to be complica- ed, they were referred to doc- tors at the Catholic hospital 14 miles north or at the Presbyter- inn hospital nine miles south," she said. Miss Coronado is unhesitant about recommending that Ameri- can nurses volunteer to serve in the missions as Lay Mission Help- ers. "You don't get paid (food, lodg- ing, $25 monthly pocket money), Gives Invocation Fort Smith -- SisterScholastica Vogelpohl, O.S.B., of St. Schol- astica Convent here delivered the dinner invocation at the Southwest Literary Festival in Tulas, Okla., October 24-26. Sponsored 0y South and West, Inc., with Sue Abbott Boyd and Clara Laster as co-chairmen and with the cooperation of the writers of Oklahoma, the literary festival oi  readings, symposiums and lectures was held at Camelot Inn. Writers from all over the United States participated in the program. Sister Scholastica, English in- structor at St. Anne's High School here, delivered her invocation at the Saturday dinner and Awards presentation. Churches Face Tax On Business Profits Washington (NC) -- The Senate Finance Committee has voted to tax the income of businesses op- erated by churches and other tax- exempt organizations. For the first time in history, the profits from so-called unre- lated church businesses ranging from publishing houses to radio stations, from bakeries to res- taurants, will be subjected to tax- es -- if Congress upholds the committee's decision. The change, which had the sup- port of a number of church groups, including the National Council of Churches and the United States Catholic Conference, would in- crease government revenues by $30-million a year by 1979. II Carmelites Issue Film On Peru Shantytowns Downers Grove, Ill. (NC)-- Carmelite Missions, with head- quarters here, has released a mission film, entitled "Hope Through Tears," which portrays the work done among the poor of Lima, Peru, in that city's bar- riadas (shantytowns). Father Marie L. Dittami, O. Carm., Carmelite Missions pro- curator and producer of the 16 mm color and sound film, said "through visual contact the peo- ple of the United States can see where their money is going and how it is used. People are delighted to know their contributions have helped people lift themselves up without its being a give-away pro- gram." The 5-minute film, suitable for all audiences, stresses social help rather than religious opera- tion. It is available through Car- melite Missions, Downers Grove, Ill. 60515. the years go quickly," she said. "We have a rule of life. Mass is at the center.
