Her 'First Banner' A Marian banner has been constructed for St. Mary's Catholic Student Chapel by artist Mrs. Virginia Irvin. "This was my first banner," says Mrs. Irvin, who is a miniaturist. Everything is made from felt and placed on a burlap backing. The gold paper Alpha-Omega symbol may be replaced by gold cloth, says Mrs. Irvin. The Latin wording is taken from an old manuscript and is a praise to the Blessed Virgin Mary. Mrs. Irvin, who is the mother of Fr. Charles E. Irvin, chaplain at St. Mary's, lives at 619 E. University. She is the widow of U-M Prof. Charles E. Irvin. She says she made the banner for St. Mary's Golden Jubilee, a celebration in connection with the chapel's 50th anniversary.

St. Mary's Losing Belfry St. Mary's Chapel is losing its belfry. Workmen have been working on the church for over a week. According to St. Mary's chaplain, Sister Connie Smedinghoff, they are dismantling the belfry because its structural condition has deteriorated. The church and belfry were built in 1924. Sister Connie said the workmen are also repairing loose masonry on the side of the church. "There is structural damage underneath the bricks in the steel supports," she said about the belfry. "It was caused by water seepage. It would cost too much to take the bricks down, clean and paint the steel and put the bricks back up. Besides the belfry is hollow and it would happen again."
