It'sahappen- ing world and school is one of the happenings. You haven't seen those people all summer. Old friends turn teeny-bopper and hippies go legit (major happening). There are new teachers to get a load of (minor ? happening) and old teachers to re-brown. Practice for the season's first football happening is In. (Sorry, needlepoint for boys under 35 Ity MARY ANN EISCHEN is still Out.) There's also trivia such as comparing schedules, locker numbers and summer gossip. Talk to those kids who took the real vacations. They're the ones with the suntans that don't stop. They'll tell you what it's like to be out and about, but remember, silence is golden. Who knows, you might even find out if people in San Francisco really do wear flowers in their hair. While wading down the halls through masses of summer blondes and big, strong bleach boys, lefs hope that summer tan didn't scramble any brains and that everyone is capable of lighting his own mental fire. New Look Dazzles Students Garrigan has done some sprucing up this summer to add to the i j ver-changing school. A splash of color sparked up the bleachers with orange, blue and red sections of seats. They were also enclosed at the back for warmth; the sides and front are covered with brightly colored panels. In addition, all of the outside atliletic equipment, goal posts and buildings were given a yellow coat of paint with a sharp black trim. This includes the new maintenance garage which offers an extra concession stand and a unique little office for the custodians. The blue team also has a new "Pride Sign" which spells out practice, running, initiative, desire and enthusiasm. To set off the whole field, a black and gold "Home of the Golden Bears" sign stands at the entrance. In the school there are new book shelves in most of the class rooms and three new offices have been tiled, panelled, painted and lighted. The shoproom office is for Mr. Bruce; Mr. McCall has the Dean of Boys office in the old coat checkrcommand the north janitor room has been converted to Father Smith's office. Add shining floors, strips of corking for bulletin board materials and well-trimmed lawns, and you come up with the assurance that the custodians, Gene Nichols and Vic Frideres, have had a very busy summer.
