Examinations Challenge Prospectives Sixty-two juniors recently spent three solid hours transferring their knowledge, acquired over the last three years of education, onto paper during the National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test administered by Garrigan's registrar, Sister Mary Lucile, PBVM. Results from this test, given on Feb. 25 at Garrigan, will arrive sometime during the 196768 school year. From these, the semi-finalists across the nation will be named. On that same day entrance exams were also administered at Garrigan to all eighth graders from the surrounding parishes. Results of these tests will help to determine class statistics and placement Scholarship or not! This is what Jack Muller and 61 other juniors were trying to determine at the N.M.S.Q.T. taken Feb. 25 at Garrigan. (Photo by Steve Ludwig) Ready, Set, Sew! BY CHRISTINE OBRECHT Take 100 yards of gray suiting, add 60 yards of white satin and four yards of white lace and presto-chango, costumes are born. Sister Lawrence Marie, PBVM, and her committee of junior girls are in the process of making everything from hats and parasols to long evening gowns for the coming operetta, MY FAIR LADY. The committee, composed of Sandra Elbert, chairman, Paula Dearchs, Donna Hentges, Cathie Kollasch, Kathy McGuire, Jacky Miller and Beverly Ziemet, has already completed the green and white striped maid uniforms but still have a long way to go. Special thanks goes to Mrs. Gerald Elbert, Mrs. Vernell Ludwig and Mrs. James McEnroe for their part in the work. Sister Lawrence Marie subtly hinted that all seamstresses, designers and hat feathers are welcome. Chemists Gasp For Air Fumes Contaminate Lab; BY MARY ANN EISCHEN Let me take you where the action was 1 Follow your nose and you'll end up near the chemistry room, scene of last week's mass emigration. Would-be scientists gave up inhalation and sudden breathing after Sister Mary Imelda, PBVM, pulled a cork. Many purple faces later, the reprieve bell rang and kids made a mad dash for the door. Outside reactions included "What did you guys do in there ?I" But mainly it was "Phew" as putrid fumes of butyric acid assailed hand-covered noses. Rancid butter was the polite name given to the odor but anyone in that wing of the building had his own ideas on the subject. The place literally smelled the past week as the period six . chemistry class conjured up esters smelling like wintergreen, fingernail polish remover and old bananas. Now you know it's not always (Photo by Steve Ludwig) neat to meet your baby where the action is unless, of course, you have clogged sinuses in common. Tuesday, March 7, 1967 Algona (la.)

Occupations of the volunteers range from nurse's and accountants to mechanics and engineers. Miss Struenberg also stressed the need for more volunteers to carry on the work of the apostolate.

Doctor Dad Kohlhaas diagnosed a dead battery. THE STAR is published twice a month by the students of Garrigan High School, Algona, Iowa, 50511. Co-editors: Mary Bonnstetter and Rhonda Schuller.
