munity tenaciously live to the great age of
80 or even 90 years.
This tenaciousness is shared by the mem-
bers of Lendahand. One volunteer nurse from
Pennsylvania said, "There are moments when
I get so frustrated at trying to get through
to these people that at times, I just want to
quit . . . but, I stay."
There's not much one can say to describe
the successes or disappointments of Lenda-
hand; one has to live there and feel them.
The nurses will agree their accomplishments
usually come slowly and with much effort.
It's appropriate the nurses are not pictured,
for, as Irma tells those who come to visit,
"Our most succesful cases are those we do not
see."
(NOTE: The Newman Center at St.
Mary's has sent work crews of 25 stu-
dents to Lendahand during spring
break to help the nurses keep up
their center and too, to be introduced
by the nurses to some of the ways of
Appalachia.)

Tom Baker (no relation to Otie and Allen Baker) lives alone wth his aneurism of
the arta and an ulcer on his left leg. He';. 9 years old and looking for a wife.

"Whata you want to take my picture fur you puttin' it in the fields to scare the
crows away?" Albert Mills farms on tl emiills leading into his "holler". He keeps
the rocks in his almost vertical pasture, to keep the top soil from eroding away.

Arthritis plagues Hester Mills now, but when she was young and first married, she
and Albert built their home together there in Buckeye "holler".
