READING COMPREHENSION :
A Sobbing little girl stood near a small school from which she had been turned away because it was
too crowded. I cant go to school, she sobbed to a priest as he walked by. Seeing her shabby,
unkempt appearance, the priest guessed the reason and, talking by hand, took her inside and found a
place for her in the school class. The child was so touched that she went to bed that night thinking
of the children who have no place to study.
Some years later, this child lay dead in one of the poor tenement buildings and the parents called for
the kindhearted priest, who had befriended their daughter, to handle the final arrangements. As her
poor little body was being moved, a worn and crumpled purse was found which seemed to have
been rummaged from some trash dump. Inside were found 57 cents and a note scribbled in childish
handwriting which read, This is to help make the little school bigger so more children can go to
school.
For more years she had saved for this offering of love. When the priest tearfully read that note, he
knew instantly what he would do.
Carrying this note and the cracked, red pocketbook to the stage, he told the story of her unselfish
love and devotion. He challenged his assistants to get busy and raise enough money for the larger
building.
A newspaper learned of the story and published it. It was read by a realtor who offered them a
parcel of land worth many thousands. When told that the school could not pay so much, he offered
it for a 57 percent payment.
Religious members too made large subscriptions. Cheques came from far and wide. Within five
years the little girls gift had increased up to $250, 000 huge sums for that time. Her unselfish love
had paid large dividends. The school building houses hundreds of scholars, so that no child in the
area will ever need to be left outside at school time.
In one of the rooms of this building may be seen the picture of the sweet face of the little girl whose
57 cents, so sacrificially saved , made such remarkable history. Alongside of it is a portrait of her
kind priest.
