Faced with an enrollment smaller than most parochial schools' and little prospect of improvement, Sacred Heart High School in Vineland, N.J., will close in June. Founded in 1927, Sacred Heart enrolls about 168 students in grades nine through 12, well below the threshold of 220 that the Roman Catholic Diocese of Camden considers viable even for grammar schools. With 52 seniors graduating this spring and just 21 freshmen starting in the fall, the prospect of a turnaround seemed slight, according to diocesan officials.

A few plays later, Carly Testa doubled to right to bring home the runner from second with the game-winning run.

Billy's hand in hers. It's what Jill Jones remembers best about her big brother, a half-century after they went to play outside their Vineland home - and he disappeared. On that chilly morning of Dec. 17, 1962, William Ebenezer Jones wore a blue-gray snowsuit, a matching hat, and tan high-tops with yellow laces. He had blue eyes, big ears, and a vaccination scar shaped like a giraffe on his upper left arm. He loved dogs and was three months away from his fourth birthday. When Billy didn't return to the house at 302 Taylor Ave. that he shared with his parents and two younger siblings, hundreds of police, firefighters, National Guard troops, and volunteers searched for days on foot, by boat and by air. The missing boy became a national news story and stunned the city in Cumberland County.
