Camp Good Health Contributions A lung standing trudltlun of providing prufi'ssltinal tionul opportunities fur young people Initiated by her lute husband, has inspired Mrs. M.J. Donnelly, 315 Nassau SE, to niake a "major contribution" toward construction of a nursing education center at Ml. Mercy college. As a tribute to Mrs. Donnelly and the late Mr. Donnelly, the college's trustees have named the new facility the Donnel- ly Center for Nursing Education. The amount of the gift was not announced. Mr. Donnelly, a graduate of the first Creighton university law class in 1907, was instrumental in starting that law school. He served as general counsel for the Pabst Brewing Co. for many years and spent nine years in Chicago as gener- al counsel for the U.S. Brewers foundation which he organ- ized. He practiced law in Cedar Rapids for a number of years and at the time of his death in 1957, he was senior member of the Donnelly, Lynch, Lynch and Dallas law [irm here. Mr. Donnelly was a long-term member of the Immacu- late Conception church board of trustees. In 1954 he received the Eight-Point Star of the Order of Malta in New York City's St. Patrick's Cathedral in ceremonies presided over by Francis Cardinal Spellman. A member of the Holy Name society and the Knights of Columbus, he received many religious honors and helped many young men from this area secure an education in prep- aration for the priesthood. Mr. Donnelly was born in Walker in 1881 and attended school there and at the Tilford academy in Vinton. Mrs. Donnelly, the former Alice Flaherty, attended elementary and high school in Cedar Rapids.

HARTFORD. Conn. (AP) Tun many Americans gel their only physical exercise sitting in front of a television set watching athletes perform, according to an insurance ex- ecutive recently appointed to the President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports. "Too early in life some peo- ple resign themselves as watchers because they have learned they can't win as they're supposed said John J. Byrne. He blumtb Ihis ill part on the availability of sports on television. He also blames the excessive urge to win built into the competitive system in this country. Byrne said a study done by Ihe President's Council shows that 45 percent nf adults don'I engage in any exercise beyond Iheir daily routine. And of the 55 percent who do exercise, less than half exercise the three1 times a week thai is nec- essary to derive benefits. Byrne, who gels up al (i a.m.. every day. jumps rope, does pushups, silups and other calisthenics for 10 minutes. and works from or 8 a.m. until 11 p.m. most work days. He swims with his wife and three sons in Ihe summer and skis in 'winter and often plays golf. He said he doesn'l feel in- timidated by professional ath- letes and wishes other Amer- icans didn'l. But the heavy emphasis on winning in pro- fessional sports is becoming strongly entrenched "even in organized sports for young bny-j and girls, discouraging all but the most capable and competitive from participat- ing." Children's Home board of directors, of the Cedar Rapids Garden club and the Cedar Rapids Country club. She was ac- tive In the Immaculate Conception church altar and rosary society and served on the original board of the Mt. Mercy college Woman's club. The Donnellys' daughter, Joan, was a student ut Mt. Mercy academy. Mr. Donnelly's brother, Msgr. P. Edward Donnelly, was celebrant for the first mass ever said "on the hill" where Mt. Mercy college and Sacred Heart convent are now located. Beginning with this first mass In 1906, Msgr. Donnelly daily walked from Immaculate Conception church to Mt. Mercy and back to say mass for the Sisters of Mercy. A public ceremtiy recognizing the Donnelly gift will be held at Ml. Mercy next spring. Construction is to begin immediately on the nursing center, which will house more than 220 nursing students and 20 faculty members. Architects for the building are Hansen, Lind. Meyer of Iowa City. Rinderknecht Associates is con- struction manager. The center will provide space for increased student use of audio-visual material and one-to-one faculty-student learning experiences. Much of Mt. Mercy's nursing curriculum is based on students learning at their own rate, and the new center will improve this through the increased space and strategic location of classrooms, seminar rooms, audio-visual self-Instruction rooms, faculty offices and a large lecture hall, all under one roof. At present, the nursing department is housed in a portion of the remodeled fifth floor or "attic" of Warde hall, in a sin- gle classroom on the third floor of Warde and in a remodeled portion of Sacred Heart convent. t Site of the Donnelly center is north of McAuley and Re- gina dormitories near the crest of the hill. The building has been placed so as not to obstruct the view from the two dormitories. Original cost of the building in 1972 was but de-. sign revisions and inflation have increased the figure to 866.241. The college has been conducting a capital campaign to raise funds for the nursing center and for a men's residence. Gifts, pledges and grants toward these goals total million, including a federal health, education and welfare department construction grant for the nursing center. Thirteen volunteers from the corporate community and 11 board members have been working on the campaign. Plans are now underway for carrying the campaign to the college constituency in this area and throughout the state. Alumni, parents and friends of the college will be called on by their peers as funds are sought for the second objective, the men's residence. DALE'S FRESH FRUIT BASKETS THEY'RE THE SWEETEST GIFTS!
