4— GHS Presents New Features At Annual Carnival, Feb. 11 Garriggn High School! Algona. Iowa 50511 February 6, 1968 Deeds Live On Many people were shocked by the death of Father Conway. But especially stunned were the students and faculty of Garrigan High School. Everyone reserved a special place in their heart for him. Father Coriwa/s outstanding personality was felt by all. Although Father left Garrigan before the classes of '69, '70, and '71 entered the halls, his legend and traditions have lived on. Alumni still comment on his public singing at school. The PA would be turned on and "Oh Danny Boy" would fill the halls and rooms, cracks and corners of the school on St. Patrick's Day. Ever since the school was begun, Garriganites have been known as the Golden Bears. But what really put spirit into the name was the day Father presented the school with a real, stuffed, full-sized bear, shot while on one of his many hunting trips up north. Garrigan High School stands as a living memorial to Father Conway's dedication to education. He will live on for the students through his deeds. Correspondents Appointed For Co-Ed.

Student librarians here at GHS are definitely being noticed 1 Any time you happen to walk into the library, you will surely see one or two bustling about their many duties. A crew of fifty-three, under the direction of Sister Mary Virginia, PBVM, have shown their willingness to work by taking care of desk duties, such as checking books in and out, filing and typing cards, and shelving books. They also keep the library neat and tidy. When questioned on her general opinion of these workers, Sister Virginia said, "They're really tops as far as I'm concernedl They're hardworking, interesting, and wonderful!" Tuesday, Jan. 24, 7th and 8th graders from Ruthven Elementary School wandered about Garrigan's Art Department. The grade-schoolers were accompanied by Mrs. Knudsen, their art instructor. Comments were made on the variety of projects undertaken by the classes and the workmanship put into each piece. Each class will select a king and queen candidate and the winning candidates will reign over the Mardi Gras dance to be held on Feb. 27. The winners will be determined by the class selling the most dinner and raffle tickets. Students are currently selling tickets for the catered broasted chicken dinner which will replace the usual smorgasbord. Adult tickets are $1.50; children's tickets sell for $1. A stereo tape player (for a car), quarter beef, blender, radio, and electric blanket are being raffled off this year. Any student who sells $10 worth of raffles will receive a free pass to the Mardi Herring Gets Cold Shoulder A long plastic package made the scene at room 38 in time for the economics class of period seven. It wasn't long before the uninvited visitor was getting plenty of attention. It seems Mike Studer had brought a boneless, smoked herring to class prompted by earlier discussions on the manufacturing of fish products in the United States. Sister Margaret was offered a "bite" but decided the donor should have half, and made the bargain. But the herring wasn't to be split. After a few minutes of trying to eat just a small segment, Mike threw it into the wastebasket with all agreeing "no telling what it had gone through." Herring has made history; for the first time it was a "class offering" at Garrigan. Freshmen Work On One - Act Play Recently Mr. Richard Balcik's aesthetics class has been busy working on the one-act play, "The Case of the Crushed Petunias," by Tennessee Williams. According to Mr. Balcik, this class project is to "increase student appreciation of modern drama and cause awareness of universal ideas presented in plays." It also aims at helping students gain poise by performing in front of a group. The all-freshman cast, which includes Janet Studer, Ann Walker, Gary Kollasch and Paul Carman, has presented the play to other aesthetics and English classes. Sister Ignatius, PBVM, commented on the performance saying, "they did a very good job." Gras dance. Every $5 over that initial $10 will give the student a chance at winning an extra $5. Each class is also busy working up original ideas for booths. These include a dunking machine filled with hay, A or 5 pinball machines, a penny toss, a chuck a wheel and perhaps a spook house. Introducing the carnival week was a talent-hootenanny show Sunday, Feb. 4, at 8 p.m. The one dollar admission included the dance that followed. Students, faculty and outside talent contributed to the evening program.

Boys Confident Of Girl Players The Harlem Globe Trotters? Maybe someday, but for right now the 85girlsenrolledinGHS's intramural basketball program are satisfied with getting that ball through the hoopl The girls are divided into ten teams, each being coached by a junior or senior varsity team member. Do the boys feel pity or joy? Tom Black's answer was "Ha-Oh boy." Mike Elbert's confident words were "We're off to state." So, if the girls forget about how they look running down the BB court, and the boys keep their eyes on that bouncing thing, maybe we will have a feminine Globe Trotters team. Students Swing To Music Jerry Besch, Linda Brigai and Dave Besch look over the selections on Garrigan's new jukebox.
