EDITH STEIN A MODERN SAINT Edith is an Old English name meaning "rich gift." The name "Stein" comes from the German word for stone, probably short- ened from the old High German word "steingut" meaning stone- ware as many of our older names came about through the endeavors of the family and, over time, many were shortened. Edith, the youngest of the seven children of the devout Jewish-German Stein family, was born in 1891. As a very young child she was considered brilliant. At the age of four, after a short time in kindergarten, her parents were asked to keep "the budding genius" at home until she was six, old enough to enter the regular school program, "as she was exhausting her teacher." Edith always attained high marks and loved learning for the sake of knowledge and truth. By the time she was 25 she had earned her doctorate in philoso- phy. Although her father died when she was quite young, her mother maintained the strict re- ligious principles of their Jewish faith. Edith joined in on all of these occasions even though she proclaimed herself an atheist at the age of 13. By 26 Edith found herself vis- iting the widow of her associate, a young couple she had be- friended. She was awed at the strength the lady's Christian remembers seeing cry when she did finally tell her her news) this hope was to wait. For 12 more years Edith wrote, taught, lectured, and prayed. She is remembered by her students for demanding ex- cellence and only applying sternness when necessary. She was a person who made herself available for help with both scholastic and personal con- cerns. Her lecture demands in- creased with her writings, trans- lations and commentaries as did her kindnesses to the poor of the communities she visited. By 1933 Hitler had achieved power in Germany. Perhaps now, because her public influ- ence was at a halt, Edith was ac- cepted as a postulant in the Carmel at K61n, Germany and, at age 43, was clothed as a Carmelite taking the name of Sister Teresa Benedicta of the Cross. Like her patron, TereSa of Avila, she is remembered as a cheerful, warm person with a gift for laughter. In 1938, as Hitler began persecuting the Jews full force, Edith's superiors sent her to the Carmel of Echt in Holland. Soon the forces over- took Holland, sought out those of Jewish origin, arrested them and moved them to East Ger- man concentration camps. Edith Stein, now Sister Teresa Benedicta of the Cross, O.C.D., and her true sister Rosa were two of those taken for transit. faith had given her.

"Give my love to the sisters, 1 am travelling eastward." Edith and Rosa died in the crowded gas chamber of Auschwitz two days later.

Route 60 one mile east of Rainelle. The congregation was organized in 1942 and first met in a ga- rage building at the present site. Reverend Harry Simms was the first pastor.

Reverend Carl Payne has been pastor of the church since 1989. 10 The 1990 West Virginia Young Democrats Convention is scheduled for August 10-12 in Charleston, the same weekend as the West Virginia Democratic Jefferson-Jackson Day Dinner. The purpose of the conven- tion is two-fold, according to West Virginia Young Democrats President Russ Rollyson. "There are two mare focus points for the weekend festivities. The first is to adopt a platform for which the Young Democrats stand, which is similarly modeled after the National Young Democrats' platform." The second priority of the convention is to elect new officers, Mr Rollyson said.

Partici- pants -- high school sophomore, junior and senior girls with an interest in math or science --- at- tended classes with UD profes- sors, met women engineers and visited industries. "Across the nation, colleges are reporting an overall decline in engineering enrollment, sug- gesting that future technological challenges ffacing the U.S. may not be met, said Carol M. Shaw, associate dean of engineering. Ms Shaw, citing a U.S. bureau~' of Labor and Statistics report, said between 1988 and 2000, $52 pe~ cent of all new entrants to the labor pool will be women, an obviously large pool of talent for engineering." Students participating in the program stayed in UD dormito- ( The bestihings in the Greaier ~.

Another intent of the confer- ence is to rally the Young Demo- crats chapters throughout the state to a more active status, Mr Rollyson said. "We believe the convf3ntion is an excellent tool for launching a statewide effort to recruit Young Democrats throughout West Virginia." Mr Rollyson said all counties are being asked to register at- tending delegates with him. However, in light of reorganiza- tion of chapters throughout the state, those Young Democrats wanting to attend the weekend convention who are not mem- bers of any chapter, are asked to contact Executive Vice-President Carrie Webster at 342-8121 or write to her at Kanawha County Young Democrats, 1589 B Lee Street, Charleston 25311.
