Hats Off to the Globe-Gazette Suppose someone tapped you on the shoulder one of these fine fall days and said, "Did you know we no longer are to fenjoy freedom of the press? Don't you think it's time to scrap the Bill of Rights?" Naturally, unaccustomed to questions "out of the blue," you'd be surprised. And then you'd stop and take inventory of what you've been enjoying under the Stars and Stripes. You'd begin to wonder what being deprived of it means. It means more than the fact that "Blondie" and the sports page might be no more. It means that our "officials" would decide what we would be allowed ; to know. It means that the right o£ the American people to know the truth would no longer exist. It means that truth would be chained. It means that we too might have our Stepinac and Mindszenty. As this is National Newspaper Week we should think about the benefits of the free. American -Press; we should determine furthermore to preserve and defend it against both curtailment and license. Hats off and a tribute to the American Press and its local representative, the Globe-Gazette. We take this opportunity to thank our local publishers for their generous interest and the help which enables our infant project to take its first steps. THE MAROON ^ THE BLUE —:— —:— —:— Co-Edited by HOLY FAMILY and ST. JOSEPH SCHOOLS —:— —:— —:— Globe-Gazette Photo STUDENTS FORM A LIVING ROSARY— Commemorating the Battle, of Leponto, Oct. 7, 1571, when Don Juan of Austria stopped the onslaught of the Turks, by praying the rosary, the students of Holy Family gather to pray for the safety of home, school and country. Students Pay i Tribute to Mary The student body gathered in the gymnasium of the school Friday afternoon to pay tribute to Mary through' a pageant of the rosary. The program began with a prolog given by Michael Ryan. A verse interpretation speaking choir then gave an interpretation of Mary's apparations at Lepanto in 1571, at Lourdes in 1858, and at Fatima in 1917. Members of the verse choir were Mercedes Stackhouse, Dolores Linnenkamp, Patricia McGrath, Barbara Becker, Constance Wander, Jeanette Fouste, Marguerite Jeanette Enbusk, and Sally and Susan Goodman. A tableau scene at Fatima was given. Jean Mason represented he Blessed Virgin. Mary Louise Quintero, Yvonne Green and ~ohn Munn took the parts of the 3 hiJdren of Portugal. Father John Reed was organist. The student body formed a Liv- ng Rosary, and each person recited the prayers of the bead for which he or she stood. Following he recitation of the rosary, Michael Ryan led in the student's Act of Consecration. The "song 'Mother Beloved" was a fitting climax to the tribute to Mary. —T. S. Sports Parade The Holy Family school wishes to thank Floyd James and Perry Fouste for furnishing transportation, for the baseball team during the season just ended. The regular baseball season is over, but an intramural sports program has just started. This past week 14 teams participated in the saft ball tourney. Wednesday Donnelly's Boys squeezed past Wilson's Men 10-9, and the Panthers sneaked by the Yearlings 11-6. Thursday the Pepperettes beat the Softies 14-5, and the- next night the Blind Bats spanked the Flying Tigers 21-1. Monday Donnelly's Boys submerged the Panthers 17-1, while the Rookies were busily engaged in beating the Wild Cats 16-6.' Tuesday's game saw Wilson's Men take the Yearlings to the tune of 21-0. The future holds such stellar attractions as Invincibles vs. Pep- perettes, Softies meeting the Sluggers, and Rookies pitted against •the Blind Bats. —M. C. 204 Boys, 200 Girls Enrolled at School As the portals swing wide to admit our ever increasing student body the roll is called to find that 204 boys and 200 girls are enrolled at Holy Family. As the classrooms are visited it is discovered that there are 19 boys and 11 girls in kindergarten, 20 boys and 13 girls in 1st grade, 21 boys and 18 girls in 2nd grade, 20 boys and 16 girls in 3rd grade, 19 girls and 22 boys in 4th grade, 10 boys and 15 girls in 5th grade, 20 boys and 16 girls in 6th grade, 19 boys and 15 girls in 7th grade, 9 boys and 15 girls in 8th grade, 10 boys and 17 girls in 9th grade, 15 boys and 12 girls in 10th grade, 6 boys and 17 girls in llth grade, and 13 boys and 16 girls in 12th grade. May this be a bigger and better year. In greeting the former students a-very warm welcome is extended to all the newcomers.— D. L. A fool praises himself; a wise man turns over the job to a friend.

FOR PHYSICS CLASS The physics class learned the practical value of precision in measurement last week when William Shannon sent to class his own micrometers. Laboratory equipment gives to the student an idea that it is something to be used in school and kept there. When it comes from one who used it in earning a livelihood it takes on a new meaning. Sophomore Undergoes Operation Jean Mason, a sophomore at Holy Family, has recently undergone a foot operation at Park hospital. Reports are that Jean will be back in school in a few days. "LOVE, SI" Dear Sue, School, again and life is one big circle, but never fear, I'll keep you up on all the latest. There are so many things that happen every week that perhaps you won't hear them all, but you will get a good deal of the lime- lighted spots. Did I tell you that Jean Mason is back in school after her operation? She is still limping around on crutches but .... Oh, ... I forgot to tell you about Mike Smith. He has. finally merited a bit of attention. Mike seems to have been "attempting" to play football when- he slipped and sprained his wrist. All the kids are getting theii drivers licenses, — All but me Phyllis Nugent is working on hers, but she seems to be having a bi' of. trouble.

For now that's 30. Write soon. Yours till the news runs out, Love, Si. We Introduce Basketball is beginning in earnest. We hope each week to introduce you to those who make it possible at Holy Family. This week meet our Father Merfeld. Father Vincent Merfeld, the assistant pastor, athletic director, and religious. instructor at Holy Family, began his duties here in July of 1949, when he came from the Immaculate Conception parish at Charles City. Father Merfeld received his elementary and high school edu- c a ti o n at St. Patrick's school, Dougherty. He later attended Loras college and was ordained to the priesthood on Dec. 17, 1944, at Dubuque by Archbishop Henry P. Hohlman. In January, 1945, he was sent to Charles City where he remained until his transfer to Mason City. Father Merfeld is well qualified to serve as an athletic director as he very adequately filled this position during his stay at Charles City. When asked what he thought of the success of the forthcoming basketball season Father said, "The prospects look pretty good," D. M. -•,., V „ Our School's Sports Angle Well, the baseball season at St. Joseph's is now history. Uniforms and equipment have been stored away for another season. Major athletics in the school are now at a standstill. But in the very near future a large group of sports enthusiasts will be making their bids for positions on one of the Jo- hawk basketball teams. Competition will be keen as many players will be striving for recognition on the Johawk varsity, the "B" squad and the Junior high team. With the advent of this popular season only a few short weeks away I would like to call "timeout" for just a few minutes and talk about some of the important things that we are expecting this basketball season to produce. Anticipation High Anticipation of great performances is naturally high at the beginning of any season and this feeling is most prevalent among the Johawks and their followers. They are always looking and hop', ing for the best results and the i Johawks themselves are determined to produce the best results ossible. With this attitude in mind let's enumerate some of the riings we will be looking for in hie coming season. First of all, we are hoping to ee a maximum number of stu- ents participating in the athletic jrogram. The greater number of ioys enrolled in the sports pro- rani the better the possibilities f a successful season. If a large lumber of boys turn out for ath- etics, there will necessarily be greater interest and competition. And competition is one of the big developers of players. Looking for Team Spirit Secondly, we are loosing for a earn spirit that has never been equalled before. We want to see in our program the results of the contribution of each individual player. This is most important because it is only when every player s giving his greatest efforts for ;he benefit of the team that the team spirit is at a maximum. Team brilliance rather than individual performance is the qual- ty we will be looking for in this year's edition of the Johawk cage squad. Co-operation and earnest, lard work are behind the success Oct. 8, 19*9 Mnon City Olobe-G«xeU«, M»«»H CUjr.U.

MERFELD of any team. Sportsmanship can never be over-emphasized. We're hoping to see this quality demonstrated by the Johawks and their followers to the highest degree. A reputation for sportsmanship is something that can never be taken away from a team. And we all know that it takes more "guts" and we're just as certain they will exhibit the finest brand of sportsmanship that will earmark them as qualified representatives of their team and their school. Look For Development Last but not least, we will be looking for the greater mental and physical development of all the players. This is one of the basic purposes of the athletic program and its fulfillment substantiates the existence of the program. Well, our "time-out" period is about up but I believe we've mentioned all the things we will be looking for in the coming season. We know that success is not accurately measured in the win and lost column, and that there are other things to be gained. GRADE ROVINGS Here are your grade school reporters again to relate the latest events. We dropped in on the 3rd and 4th grades just in time to see them returning from a movie, "About Face." The movie on teeth, made a real hit with the litle folks since they had just .finished a unit on that subject. In history the 4th graders have been studying about Abraham Lincoln. Their religion classes have been based on Abraham's leading his people into the Promised Land. Sister asked the class what Abraham did when he entered the Promised Land. One boy, confusing the 2 characters, answered, "Freed the slaves." There is a big race on in the 3rd grade. It's a race to learn all the combinations. Already past the goal line is Terril Berkland. Close behind are: Joan Doering, Mary Hanna Galleger, Michael Nettleton and Dennis Woodhouse. The fifth graders are trying to get one hundred per cent enrollment in the St. Columban's Foreign Mission society. They are also visiting the United States through sterascopes at the public library. The sixth graders have elected class officers. They are: President, Ruth Arnold; vice president Paul Fandel; secretary, Kay Lowenberg, and treasurer, Joanne McMenimen.

This Girl, "She's Got Everything" Alice Brown is just a plain everyday American high school student like you or me. She's not the prettiest girl in class nor does she always have a straight "A" report card, is not a whiz at the piano but she has something a great deal more important than any of these—character. The first question might be: "What is this wonderful thing you call character?" Here's where many have the wrong idea. Character isn't what people think you are but what you really are. Alice is one of those persons who stands out among all of the others. Her bright shining eyes seem to tell you what sort of girl she it. This doesn't mean she goes down the hall with a long face and folded hands, but rather she is very much alive and has a great deal of pep. She always has a smile for everyone be it first- grader or senior. If any school project is attempted, who is called? • You're right! It's Alice. She's never too busy to give a helping hand but always ready to do anything she can to the best of her ability. Nor do you find her gossiping in the hall about a fellow student. Her motto is: If you can't say anything good about a person, don't say anything. The next question might be-: ; 'How can I become an Alice Brown?" Character doesn't come in a day. You need,, help. Once you have real character, you have everything. This type of boy and girl will make the type of person we want as American citizens. If God had intended man to go backward, he would have given him eyes in the back of his head. YOUNG MEN'S STYLES High Grade Dress SHOES 4.95 Sizes 6 to 12 SCHIFF'S SHOE STORE 21 So.

Yes, summer is gone and all of nature is preparing for winter. Golden-brown leaves are fluttering earthward. Birds, which form a black cloud against the sky, are making their southward flight. Squirrels are scurrying about trying to finish storing their nuts in their favorite oak trees.- In the country v/e see golden pumpkins peeking out from rich brown corn shocks. And.,the harvest moon shining down looks like a guardian mother protecting her little ones. The white glaze over the black earth tells us that Jack Frost is using his picturesque patterns once more. Yes, nature's f life is spent for another season. natius. An evening of sparkling entertainment is assured to our audience.
