Default Dreaming of St. Jude?

Last night I was watching the episode "Danny Goes Social," first broadcast January 28, 1957. Danny is entertaining some rich folks and suggests to the woman who invited him there that she donate his fee to charity. He gives a couple suggestions, including the Heart Fund and Saint Jude's Hospital for Children. How could have have come up with that suggestion as early as 1956/1957? St. Jude's didn't exist yet and wasn't founded until 1962!

Maybe there was a smaller hospital named St. Jude's, in existence at the time, that Danny was referring to...?

It takes time to fund and build a hospital. Per the Wikipedia article above, that would have been right about when Thomas started fundraising.

On the complete fifth season DVD there's a featurette called, "Danny Thomas' Answered Prayer: The Story of St. Jude's." It states that Danny began praying to Saint Jude for guidance as a young comedian. It makes sense that he would begin thinking of how he wanted the hospital to be once he became successful.

praying to Saint Jude



May the sacred Heart of Jesus be adored, glorified, loved and preserved throughout the world now and forever.
The sacred heart of Jesus pray for us;
St. Jude, worker of miracles, pray for us.
St. Jude helper of hopeless cases, pray for us.
AMEN

[Say this prayer nine times a day for nine days and on the ninth day your prayer will be answered. It has never been known to fail. Publication must be promised upon your answer]

You must say it with true feeling from your heart.

Thank you God, St Jude, St. Anthony and St. Michael for the prayer and favor granted - Amen

Alternate Version


May the sacred Heart of Jesus be adored, glorified, loved and preserved throughout the world now and forever.
The sacred heart of Jesus have mercy on us;
St. Jude, worker of miracles, pray for us.
St. Jude helper of hopeless cases, pray for us.
AMEN

There's a St. Jude ad that's been airing this summer, with archive footage of Danny. I wonder if this is the footage that's on the 5th season DVDs. I didn't even know this was on the set.
