"Why we all did — the class did," comes the immediate answer. But actually you the individual, did. Perhaps it was your vote that turned the tide of victory toward Bill— or prevented Betty from winning that coveted position. Yes,' you elected them; now it's up to you to back them. No class officer, no matter how good he or she is, can be a success without those in his class being behind him. Just as an army, that has only leaders, cannot win a war; a project that has no one backing it is bound to fail. Now that you have elected your class officers, your job is not completed; it is only half done. To put your class ahead and to make your projects truly successful, you must co-operate with your officers in fulfilling their duties. Don't ever think it's a pleasure for the president to appoint you to be on a committee or for the treasurer to come begging you for money. But, you say, you didn't vote for Bill for president, so why should you have to co-operate with him? If you're the type who scoffs at class spirit and can't see any reason for working with "the officers, at least think of it from this viewpoint: You want your school government to be a democracy. During the class elections you exercised your right to vote. You learn in social science that every right has a corresponding duty. Although the person you wanted didn't get elected, it still becomes your duty to back the officers your class did see fit to elect. It is only fail- that, if you wish to keep your rights, you must fulfill your duties. Pick up that new book, "Developing Citizenship Through School Activities," by Laura Scu- felt and read, "Do-democracy is not based on listening or talking, nor on counting noses; it is based on participation, facing problems together." That's something for you to think about. Do more than think — DO. PRESIDENTIAL COURTESY—Tom Sheehy, senior class president, gives way to Margaret Mary Ryan. Daniel Lynch, sophomore president and Michael Sweesy, freshman president, act in like manner. Class Officers j Are Elected Class elections were held in the different classes in senior and junior high school on Friday, Sept. 23.

Plans Are Made for the Living Rosary Interest runs high as the high school students scan the poster on the corridor bulletin board to locate their places in the Living Rosary. Every one has a part to play, and the beauty of the ceremony depends upon the co-operation of all. This demonstration will be given on the Feast of the Holy Rosary, Oct. 7, at 2 p. m. in the school gym. The parents are invited.

Roving Reporter Has Interview With Class Presidents A roving reporter met the presidents of the different classes anct asked tions: them the following ques- "What are your plans for yourself and your class during the year, and how do you i'eel about being elected class president?" Tom Sheehy (Senior)—"I'd like to enter the Sodality and of course go out for basketball and baseball. There hasn't been too much said about class projects and my only plan is for a good year book. Was I glad to be elected?—Yes, it's my last year so naturally I was glad." Margaret Mary Ryan (Junior)— "The most important project this year will be the banquet and prom. We're going to make it the best one we have ever had. I was pleased and rather- surprised at being elected president." Dan Lynch (Sophomore) — "Well, I'd like to play basketball and baseball. I don't know just what the class plans are as yet. As for being elected president—I don't particularly like it but I'll try anything once." Michael Sweesy (Freshman)— "I don't know any of the plans for the class, but I'll try and do my best. I felt sort'a excited and proud when I was elected.—D.

Breen, pastor of Holy Family parish an'd super- ', intendent of Holy Family school, will be invested with the insignia of a domestic prelate to Pope Pius XII on Sunday, Oct. 16. The ceremony will be held in Dubuque with Archbishop Henry P. Rohlman officiating. This is the 2nd time Msgr. Breen has been honored by the Holy Father. Formerly he ~.vas made a papal chamberlain. The official document, of the recent honor, was brought from Rome by Archbishop Rohlman and Bishop Edward Fitzgerald, when they returned last week from their official visit to the Eternal City. Monsignor Casey of Dubuque brought the official appointment to Mason City last Sunday. To a Maroon reporter, who interviewed Monsignor Breen, he stated: "I am very grateful to Archbishop Rohlman and to the Holy Father for honoring me." GRADE ROVINGS As we descended the 2 flights of stairs to the first floor where the primary grades hold classes we wondered if their first weeks of school had been as successful as [ours. Here we give you a bird's| eye view of their achievements so far. All of the lower grades are taking particular notice of nature at this time of the year. They are bringing colored leaves to school and making fruit borders and autumn scenes. Our industrious 4th graders are collecting money to send a Witness subscription to a priest in New Zealand. The girls are leading this week in the 5th grade mission work. After climbing the steps we find none other than the busy 6th graders whose motto is "Service with a Smile." They are the super salesmen who operate the supply room from sunrise to sunset, Saturdays and Sundays excluded.

I sure hope this col- mn is enjoyed by all as it is to be regular feature in The Blue rom now on, but I hope it doesn't ;et too notorious as time marches n. Don't be too critical, readers, r my reputation may take a turn or the worse. CLASS RIN'GS The members of the class of '50 eem to be waiting patiently for heir class rings which are expected sometime next week. It ooks like they're really coming up n the world. Well, at least it shows they've done something if 'hey have the money to pay for hem. Somehow I know the tears will come to my eyes as I look at nine, thinking of all the good times I've had as a Joette and throughout my career at St. Joe. (What mush!) STRICTLY OFF THE RECORD Well, after 4 weeks of paradise within the walls of St. Joe we find many remarks and incidents to record "strictly off the record." Member the time when the girls got together and decided that what Jim Ver Heist needed was some VTabeline and an eyelash curler? Or when Tom Nangle and Jack Schmalowski had a hot game of catch with a dead mouse for a oall last week? Did you have a "mice" time boys? Oh yes, and when Pat Wiest obligingly % put up the sign saying "Do not disturb, genius at work," poor Anthony! Or when Madelon gave the private hair cut, (no charge) with a finger nail clippers? And finally we must end with a sad note. It seems that Cleone is sitting home every night now counting her heart beats while "Buddy" is counting beets too, (sugar beets) Tuff! Well, I must be off digging up some more dirt fur next week's "BJue Daze." So, 'til we meet again . . . By Remote Control. Our School's Sports Angle Wednesday afternoon the curtain fell on the St. Joseph's high school baseball season. And it I fell with a terrific thud, for on that afternoon the Johawks suf- [ fered a heart-breaking defeat to a fighting Rockwell team in the finals of the fall sectional tournament at Hanlontown by a score of 3-1. This was Rockwell's 2nd victory over the Johawks having beaten them less than a week ago at Rockwell. The south siders^ collected 7 hits to 3 for their opponents, but they failed to capitalize on them, leaving 14 runners stranded on the base paths. Rockwell took full advantage of the 3 hits and 3 walks given by Jim Ver Heist to tally their ^winning margin. Each team was 'guilty of only one miscue in the field. Jack Schma- lowsky and Roy Georgoff d i d most of the offensive work for the losers, collecting 2 hits apiece. Looked Impressive In their other 2 tournament appearances the St. Joe team looked very impressive as they posted! shut-out victories over Fertile and Joice. Jimmy Ver Heist pitched one-hit ball in both of these encounters as his mates collaborated for 15 hits to defeat Fertile 9-0 and Joice 4-0. In the Joice game Pitcher Jim Ver Heist faced only 23 batters and set down 19 of them via the strike-out route. All in all the Johawks enjoyed a very successful season winning 7 of their 11 games. Of the 4 defeats they suffered 2 by margins feats they suffered 2 were by margins of one run and 2 were by margins of 2 runs. The season also showed great promise for future St. Joe teams as many freshmen and sophomores performed creditably in their first year of high school baseball. Notable among these were Charley Clapsaddle, Don Carlson, Ronnie Weber, Tommy Smith and Maurice Hickey. The won and lost column for this season also looks more impressive in view of the fact that injuries played an important part STAFF Editor-in-Chief Martha Fandel Associate Editors Patricia Hale, I Mary Agnes O'Hern, James VcrHelst. Come Up With a Smile! "Oh, what'll I do—why ' does everything have to happen to me! How often do we hear this refrain echoing in the halls? Everything goes wrong in one day. It really doesn't seem fair does it? You don't have your history prepared —your best girl friend got mad for no apparent reason at all — your pencil won't work right-i- your locker door is stuck— s what are you supposed to do? But wait, let's see—in history class the teacher digresses on some famous battle and you -^.dn't need to worry—your pencil works after you cool down and work a while with it and the same with the locker door. The girl friend? Just a misunderstanding all straightened out now. Was everything so bad? After all, it worked out all right and you came up smiling, didn't you? So take it easy—don't get excited. Oh, dear, there goes that bell and I don't have anything done— what'll I do? Oh why does everything have to happen to me? Can't it happen to someone else at least • some of the time? in the play of the team. These injuries necessitated a constant shifting of the lineup in an effort to replace key men. Received Hip Injury Dick Colloton, star shortstop, and one of the team's leading hitters, was sidelined for the season in the first inning of the first game with a hip injury. Andy Patten, first baseman, was out of action for the 2 final games of the sectional tournament because of an ankle injury. Andy's absence was sorely felt because he was one of the key men in the Johawk infield and his improved hitting was a big factor in previous triumphs. Tommy Nangle started out strong in the beginning of the season leading all hitters until a muscle injury in his leg curtailed his activity considerably. And Roy Georgoff, 3rd baseman, played the entire tournament with a badly bruised bone in his left hand. The physical education program is in high gear now \yiib. touch football and volleyball holding the spotlight. Tournaments in both these sports are planned Our Pastor Raised to Domestic Prelate The faculty and students of St. Joseph school are happy to announce that our pastor has been, elevated to the dignity of Domestic Prelate. This distinction conferred by the Holy Father is indeed a great tribute to our pastor and a great honor to our school and parish. The title of Domestic Prelate is an honorary distinction. The recipient is thus constituted a member of the Pontifical Family. Mpnsignor Malone will receive the insignia of his office in Christ the King chapel, Loras college, Dubuque, on Oct. 16. Congratulations, Monsignor Malone! Cardinal Giuseppe Caspar Mez- zofanti, born in Italy in 1775, could speak 114 different languages and dialects.
