But a: Sister says "keep the faith!!' — GHS — Delving into the personalities of themselves and others are .the senior Religion students. Father Zeman explained that there are four temperaments — choleric, sanguine, melancholic and phlegmatic. The problem is to decide which you are. Father seems to have the idea that all students are phlegmatic (sluggish and lazy). I wonder why? — GHS — That Christmas is coming is evident in the clothing de. partmenit as the girls are starting to make Christmas gifts 'from cloth or yarn. _GHS — In the early hours of Friday Nw. 24, six GHS'ers left for Chicago for a Journalism Convention.
