Of Younger Girls at Holyoke

Holyoke, April 10 — While many of the sewing classes at the Junior Achievement foundation are for older girls, the smaller girls are not forgotten, as witness this group of Busy Sewers and Singers taught by Miss Lorraine St. Onge (extreme right). The pupils, left to right are: Janie Sienowski, Vincie Cartabona, Wanda Sienowski and Shirley Ayotte.
