Transcription"In the room where the Presentation Sisters had planned their annual tea this afternoon, the tornado took over to furnish an ironic decorative feature with a tree which crashed through the window of Sacred Heart Convent. Pictured, left to right, are Sister Genevieve, Mother M. St. Kevin and Sister Antonine. The tea will be held today in St. Mary's Cathedral Hall instead of the Convent which is badly damaged. Hours are from 2 to 5. The public is invited. The affair is planned for the benefit of a convent building fund, begun on a long range program and now of more immediate need because of the tornado damage." - caption with similar image published in The Fargo Forum, June 30, 1957, p. B-3.
