Grads Depart; Nof Forgotten When the class of 1967 leaves these hallowed halls on M;iy 28, they will leave b3htnd them a legacy of accomplishments. These accomplishments cover many fields - music, speech, academ.'cs and sports among them. The class of 19G7 entered GHS as the biggest class in the school's history. In that year a.i'1 each succeeding year they added to their list of accomplishments. A few of these deeds would include winners of CYO medals for speech, sports and written work; the setting of new school records in football and basketball; the winning of the all-school carnival twice (the second time united with the Freshman); roles in three operettas and a representative in the all-school play every year. However, their greatest accomplishment was their aid in boosting the school spirit every year to the best of their ability. For these airJ all the rest of their accomplishments we salute the class of 1967!

Sue Nelson, Judy Berger, Fran Goecke, Rebecca Lickteig and Freedom Hungry Kids Crave Lazy Daze BY MARY ANN EISCHEN Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer and wave a fond goodbye to Garrigan's hallowed halls I As the Liberty Bell rings for the last time, it emancipates a school-full of summer-hungry kids primed to pack vacation to the nth degree. Gone is the fear of tardy slips, the dread of chemistry and religion projects and the burden of homework. No more test-cramming, bookworming cr faculty-browning. Freedom reigns supreme! Meanwhile, back on earth, gross reality lurks. Homework becomes "home" work, green grass and fresh air mean lawn mowing, bat all of a sudden, there it is, a whole empty afternoon. Now what 1 Gotta do something. Maybe you could memorize 56 lines from 'Julius Caesar' or paste the last four year's of accumulation of scraps in your scrapbook, or go talk to that neat girl who just nv.ved in down the street, or draw mustaches on all the pictures in your yearbook, but for Pete's sake, do something! You can't play soccer all summer without a goal line. You don't have to aim to reunite the Anglican Church or take the lean out of the Tower of Piza but there must be some little something worth while you can do. How about making an old friend out of that old granny down the street ? Wno knows, maybe she's really not a witch and bakes pretty fair gingerbread. Or m?.ybe you could teach your pet orangutan to clean his cage while whistling 'I Was Kaiser Bill's Batman'. Or write a critical evaluation of CATCHER IN THE RYE, or erase all the mustaches off the pictures in your yearbook. And please don't forget about your Friend, Our Lord in the tabernacle. Have a fun summer, play soccer, and, since you fought for your freedom for nine lo-ong months, don't do anything to get it repealed or declared unconstitutional. When the summer daze has rolled all the way out, who wants to be left standing with a tardy slip and an empty Scoreboard ? Lawrence Nauholz - University ' of Northern Iowa, Cedar Falls.
