In truth we are for years ago they dreamed of us and the happiness we would bring to them. Are we worth the trouble it has been to feed, to clothe, to house, and to educate us? If we have never stopped to think about this then probably we have not shown our gratitude to them. We have not realized what we.have cost our parents in effort and in love. When we were youngsters, babysitters were not so much in vogue. Our parents spent, long hours with us. Their duties and responsibilities, were not shifted to bob- by-soxers. Theirs was a labor of love and where there is love, deeds of sacrifice become a joy. Our first' years, brought many happy hours, to dear mom and dad. Bicycle days soon followed in the wake of early childhood. More and more they were concerned with our safety—passing cars or rough boys and girls. Their care and guidance ^followed us through that period which was actually the survival of the fittest. Now that we are truly growing up, do we remember to be grateful? It is not just enough to feel grateful, we must do something about it. We must realize that Mother's Day and Father's Day are not just 2 days reserved for May and June but ones to be lived 365 times each year. Little acts of helpfulness; letting them, in on our secrets; telling them we do appreciate their efforts; bringing them a bit of a remembrance—any of these may be small in themselves but they do much in scattering happiness in our homes. Our parents yearn for this happiness. Are we giving it to them? THE MAROON -' THE BLUE —:— —:— —:— Co-Edited by HOLY FAMILY and ST. JOSEPH SCHOOLS —:— —:— —:— TEEN-AGERS ENJOY TEEN-AGERS—Five days of class- work bring a merited evening of fun and frolic. On Friday evenings the H.F.Y.O. meet for relaxation at Holy Family gym. Bookmobile to Be Holy Family Visitor The leading topic in conversational matter, or should we say chatter, among the grade school pupils these days, is the subject of the new Bookmobile. The students are now looking forward with anticipation to a school year packed with many pleasant hours of reading. Thanks to the Bookmobile and Miss Margaret Smart. The Bookmobile will visit Holy Family every 2 weeks. Each room will be allowed 10 books, which will be picked by all students or by a group. This is a new project of the Mason City library for the encouragement of reading among school children who live too far away to make frequent visits to the library. The Bookmobile is a donation from the Friends of Libraries and is under the direction of Miss Lydia Barrett.—B. T.

Under the tutelage of Coach Tierney, the Maroons are determined to overcome the defensive and mental lapses which have cost them previous contests and enter the sectional tournament with high hopes of success. The first game will be with Joice at 1:30 on Saturday.—M. R. Musing as I Receive My Senior Ring My hand is weighted down with lhat thing called a "class ring" and my heart is heading for a long flight. I am being taken into the unknown.—Heading for one last year of fun, I find myself looking with envy upon the underclassmen, who have yet to experience the joys of high school days. I glance at my hand with the ring on it and a thrill goes through me, —a thrill at knowing that I wear on my 3rd finger a symbol of Holy Family and the hours of work,— the laugh that rings through the halls, and the more serious moments when silence reigns supreme. It's MY RING and it brings memories of MY SCHOOL and I shall keep it forever. H. B. H. F. Y. O. Gets Into Action for New Year At a general assembly on Friday, Sept. 16, the Holy Family Catholic Youth Organization was formed.

We consider you our greatest asset. We expect to train you to take over and we will step in only when we find that you are unable to do the task or that you need counsel and guidance."

Our School's Sports Angle The fall baseball schedule for the Johawks is just about ended, Thus far the team has enjoyed great success posting 5 victories and suffering only 2 setbacks. Ot their season's record -they hold victories in "2 games with Rudd and Holy Family and a single engagement with Rowan. The 2 losses came at the hands of Corwith and Swaledale. In their return game with Rudd the Johawks were pressed all the way to eke out a close 2-1 decision. Jim Manship's Rangers, still smarting under an earlier 10-1 loss to the south-siders, were bent on revenge and barely missed the realization of their ambitions. A splendid pitching performance by Jim Ver Heist spelled 'the difference between defeat and victory as the Rangers were unable to cope with his fast one and had to settle for 3 hits. TonvNangle was the bie eun in the Johawk offense collecting 2 singles in 3 trips to the plate. Defeat in Store Defeat was in store for the Jo! hawks the very next afternoon following their victory over Rudd. New Flag Is Blessed A hush suddenly fell over the 'crowd of students as they saw Old Glory hoisted to the top of the flag pole and from-the stillness came the lilting refrain / of the "Star Classes Hold Elections During the week the high school held individual class elections. The Results are: Senior Class: President —• Andrew Patten; Vice president- James Ver Heist; Secretary— Marrio Phalen; Treasurer—David Stem'er. . • ' Junior class: President—Dorothy Doering; Vice president—Irna Jean Dehnert; Secretary— Marilyn Moreland; Treasurer—Katheleen Tickal. i Sophomore class: President — Donald Carlson; Vice, president— Bonnie Lampe; Secretary— Barbara Edel; Treasurer—Alice Fitz- STAFF !

Malone blessed the flag which, with the flagpole, is a gift of the Class of 1949. It was then raised by two of the present senior boys. As we watched the flag flying over St. Joe's the group of carefree youths, now patriotic young Americans, suddenly realized that there is something to Francis Scott Key's immortal words, and that each star and stripe has a symbolic meaning. Even the colors symbolize the courage, purity and loyalty for which our great nation's patriots have made such sacrifices. Soc-Hop Mixer Planned for 30th On Friday, Sept 30, the/social life committee of. the"St. Joseph high school Sodality •will sponsor a Soc'-Hop mixer for St. Joe and Holy Family high school students' to be held at St. Joseph gymna-' sium.
