The annual epidemic of spring fever has again broken loose and is running rampant through the corridors, attacking its all too susceptible victims. The results are slightly less than disastrous. Common symptoms of the dread spring fever are far-away gazes, trance-like stares, slow, sometimes graceful, often pain-' ful movements and, most prevalent, a very bleah attitude toward school centered on the feeling that the early worm gets the bird. This condition is relieved only by the ringing of a Math Contestants 'Exercise Daily' For Tournaments It's springtime and Garrigan' s math department has been busy doing mental gymnastics to get its mathematics teams in shape for annual spring contests. The first of these contests was the Clarke College Mathematics ' Tournament at Dubuque on April 8.

Four sophomores - Mary Becker, Jean Goetz, Margaret Lickteig and Ruth Neppl, also competed in the invitational tournament at Clarke.

Through his talks Father Brom hopes to impress upon each student that a retreat is a consideration of the individual's response to God's call - the choice God has made for each of us. student has to seek methods for improving the way he is living the Gospel and resolve to do and begin to do so even within the retreat. After Father Brom's three talks the students will meet in small discussion groups led by seminarians. They will discuss the material treated in Father's talks. The subjects of his talks are God's call —our mature response, Penance - the sacrament of the responding sinner, and The Mass — embracing our whole covenant situation with God.

Students Sigh: 'Froggy Ending' (Photo by Jackie Detrick) Admiring Barb Winkel's delicate work of disecting are Mike Berte and Mr. Duane Kramer, biology instructor. Having completed their disect- ing for the year, sophomore and junior, third and sixth period biology classes seem to be quiet and happy again. A number of students have saved parts of the worm, grasshopper, crayfish, perch and frog. Somehow they can be seen all over the school. On Mar. 30 and 31 the students disected for the last time the frog which resembles man more than any other amphibian. Their biology teacher, Mr. Duane Kramer, appears to be glad it's all over, too. 'Slurpy' Versus Dirt And Water Slurrpi What? Overpopulated cafeteria? No — IPs only the pride and joy of custodians Gene Nichols and Vic Frideres -- the new suction machine! Now you may wonder what a suction machine really is. Standing less than three feet high, the machine is a wet vacuum, able to suck up dirty water or just plain dirt. Recently purchased, the invention has more than proved itself work-worthy. Rev. Robert Brom bert — student for the diocese of Sioux City, la.

Book worm ing — Bamboo Curtain Brings To View Chinese Threat - With Tina The Secret Ways of Prayer by R. L. Bruckberger, O P We all realize, I am sure, that we have but one day of recollection left in this school year. It should be our best since many months will pass before our next formal opportunity of soul searching arrives. Therefore, I highly recommend .Father Bruckberger's book, The Secret Ways of Prayer, as el? cellent preparatory material, it is divided into four very small sections emphasizing how to attain greater union with God through prayer. 1 Saw Red China by Lisa Hobbs We are discovering, through the various news media, that the Chinese are not the mysterious little yellow men we tend to think of. We find that their nation is a rising threat to ours. But what really lies behind the Bamboo Curtain? Lisa Hobbs, the first American staff newspaper woman ever to enter Red China, has given us a very real and graphic account of her journey through this country. This Is your chance to learn more of this nation and its people from an eyewitness. Brendan by Mary Wallace Due to limited space I will merely mention Mary Wallace's novel Brendan. You will find it on the fiction shelf. It is a heart-warming story of true love and an attempt to "reach the unreachable goal." Look it over.
