I'm not sure what the November 1953 photo below of the women officers with Burgess Walter Panek and a small girl is about. I'm going to guess some kind of charity drive was involved, since those white cylinders look like collection canisters.

The women aren't identified in the photo, but I think that they are, from left to right:
Doris Pastrick, Mary Fazar, Kay Kokoski, Doris Tarquinio, Helen Gebet, and Mary Dobrosielski.
Fazar crossed Divine Redeemer and First Ward students at 3rd and Merchant Sts. Kokoski crossed St. Veronica students at 8th St. Gebet crossed Liberty School students at 5th St. and Duss Ave. I don't know about where the others were assigned.
If I got the name of any officer wrong, or you know the name of the little girl, the reason for the photo, and/or the crossing assignments for the rest of the officers, please leave a comment.
