Nominations Reveal Royalty Jody Ferstl Bears Anticipate Gael Rivalry BY RONALD BESCH St. Edmonds of Fort Dodge, Garrigan's oldest and keenest rival, will be the opposition for the Bears in their 1967 Homecoming game to be played on Oct. 7. The Gaels have battled the Bears eight times in a series which originated in 1959. Of these eight tilts, Garrigan has won five while losing three. In last year's game, which was St. Edmond's Homecoming, the Golden Bears routed the Gaels, 46-6. Thus far this year the Gaels have beat Eagle Grove, 13-0, and lost to LeMars Central, 157. Garrigan's Coach Cooper calls the Gaels a much improved team over last year's, with a good aerial attack centered around junior quarterback Tom Maginnis. Garrigan likewise has a 1-1 record with a victory over Clay Central, 47-7, and an opening game loss to Estherville, 25-20. Leading the Bears offensively is fullback Jack Muller with three touchdowns, five extra points, and a 5.4 rushing average. Following him is Mike Schiltz with three touchdowns, one extra point, and a 5.1 rushing average. Tom Black has scored two touchdowns and John Mertz one while grinding out a 3.5 rushing average. Another standout has been junior guard Jim Boudewyns, who has recovered three fumbles and blocked one punt. But the primary reason for success has been the good team effort. Come on Bears/ lef s continue .our winning ways over the Gaels and make pleasant memories of the Garrigan High School Homecoming of 1967. Sophs Exhibit Shows Presence Of Living God Is God dead ?? Father Verne Stapenhorsfs Sophomore Religion class said "no I" and were challenged to prove it. It ended with a complete display in the GHS library which included posters, diagrams, and short explanatory essays. The class 1 study of the physical and biological sciences and anthropology has helped them in their attempt to prove that God exists in nature. Some of the more industrious members of the class selected something from nature, such as an insect or a plant, to demonstrate the Divine Plan of creation. They also studied other items, Some of these were shells, rocks, Old Faithful, Mammoth Cave, the Earth and the solar system, When all is said and done most people agree that the sophomores proved that God is not dead.

Flowers have gone to pot. Birds are off on trips. Leaves are burned in and out of effigy. Has the world gone hippie ? Nope, fall fell. Football is making the scene. Homecoming is happening. Crops are about to do a freak out. Trees (many of 'em) are not fruitless. Face it; this fall-guy is a mover. Only one way to keep it groovy- make every minute count. Mow that grass; dig out those woolies; tote that barge 1 Take a few healthies and fight off that cold. Knit a ski-cap and try to grow yourself some fingernails. Autumn is falling all over and wants to get hit on the head. No need to panic as of yet; keep your cool. There may be a few days left that are fa kin' it as summer. Do remember, though, as the team limps off the practice field and the lights of the combine sink slowly over the bean field, to have joy in your heart and peace in your soul, brother, and your autumn won't fall flat. Journalism Students To Manage Gambles Store For Two Days Journalism students have been given the opportunity to manage the Gambles store October 20 and 21 as a project to earn money for the STAR.

The set-up this year will be a little different with a guest speaker. The skit will be in the gym at 7:30 p. m. followed by a snake dance and large bonfire behind the baseball field. The seniors are really working hard to make this the best Homecoming yet, and, with a lot of help, will have their task completed. Committees have been formed for decorating and they are really working hard. The ideas are somewhat different from those of previous years, so everyone be sure to come. Saturday is the big day, with the band making two performances, first up State street, and later on the Garrigan football field at half time. The Bears will play St. Edmonds of Fort Dodge and are looking forward to a good game. Half-time seems to bring a big moment in the students life, for the 67-68 Homecoming Queen will be crowned by Patty Loebig, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Al Loebig of Wesley. The King will also be announced at that time and the king and queen will later lead the grand march at the dance, immediately following the game. Eddie Fischer and his band will play until 12:30 a. m. for all students and alumni. The football team has practiced hard for this game so let's show them that we are really backing them. Best of luck, Bears, and we'll see you all Friday night at 7:30 and again Saturday night with the kick-off at 7:30 p. m. impact of newspaper advertising. Culminating their discussion of mass media, the class saw Bell Telephone's films Beyond All Barriers and Telstar.
