Sister Mary Sarita, PBVM, Latin teacher, and 39 of her students will embark on their escapade of past history ready to share what they have done in preparation for it. Mythology Book Attired in Roman costumes, they will display a book of mythology, models of Caesar's bridge, a Roman house, and a scroll and a book describing the daily life of the Romans. These all help carry out the theme, "Let us Cherish the Culture." Essays and poetry were written and sent in for judging before the contest. While attending the convention, there are many categories of contests for the young Romans. Students are entering mythology, Classes Acquire Valuable Lesson At State Hospital When you hear "Woodward," what comes to your mind? Before March 3 it didn't mean too much, but for Rev. Thomas Geelan's two Senior Religion classes it now has a little more behind it. As a part of their unit on mental illness, Father Geelan arranged for a tour of the Woodward State Hospital for the Mentally Retarded. The tour began with an introduction by Mrs. Joan Jones, followed by Visiting some wards and patients, and ended with a talk by Dr. Hussain and by Rev, John Kain. Many views of life were changed during the day. As one student said, "it makes you feel fortunate that you were born normal and makes you more aware of the unfortunate." For many it was hard to believe how friendly and unfearful of strangers the patients were. The tour seemed to bring every one to the realization that others have problems worse than ours. grammar and vocabulary, derivatives, and Roman life contests. Each year at the convention, new officers are elected for the next year's Classical League. This year, Bill Kohlhaas is pre- Sister Receives New Foot Attire paring to run for President.

"O.K., you put In the cream and I'll get the sugar." "How many eggs should I add?" "Who's getting the snow?" "Snow in ice cream?" Gradually a concoction of eggs, sugar, cream, and milk became liquid ice cream and was poured Into a container. With help from a few pros (Bernadette Reilly and "visit- Biti n' Pieces ing Instructor Harley Kohlhaas)the container was slowly surrounded by snow and salt which allows the snow to melt. At the same time a"brrrrrrrrr" sound revealed that the ice cream maker was hard at work. For 20 minutes the apron-clad girls sat around the pros, waiting anxiously, asking questions, and adding snow. Suddenly the machine sounded a death cry, "br -brrr ,-br" but Harley assured them It was only the Ice cream becoming hard. A few minutes later, the result was tested by hungry visitors. "Mmmmmmmm good!" calisthenics or running as if their lives depended upon it. Actually, they're getting back in shape. A sure sign of the coming spring is track, and Coach Marion Battanl and his track team are working out every night in preparation for this year's rigorous schedule.

Those attending ,from Garrigan were Marilyn Gengler, Mary Ilah McGuire, Coleen Reding, and Debbie Studer, "It was an experience that you can only express in feelings," explained Mary Ilah McGuire. It's true that Garrigan High School has a strong athletic department. Also, true is the fact that this department is orientated around boys' sports. Consider the options open to boys-baseball, golf, track, basketball, basketball intramurals, and football. The girls' sports program consists of intramural basketball. The idea that sports develop the individual both physically and mentally is common knowledge. Governor Robert D. Ray was Interviewed during the Boys' State Basketball Tournament in Des Moines. In his television conversation he brought out the point that sports give young people "the opportunity to work together." "There is a definite need for girls' sports at GHS because of the big turn-out for intra- murals," explaiuedphyslcaledu- Mrs. Patricia cation teacher, Foster. "I would not at all be opposed to girls' track or golf," commented Athletic Director, Mr Steve McCall. Are the girls Interested? A survey was taken among most you favor girls' sports here at Garrigan?" and "Would you participate?" an overwhelming majority answered, "Yes." As it stands now, Garrigan does not give the female students full opportunity to develop these traits. Therefore, we Choruses Prepare For Spring Easter is just around the corner and the GHS choral department is ready and waiting, On Palm Sunday, April 4, the Concert Chorus will present an Easter Concert. They will sing "Gloria" which is a 75-page work composed by Antonio Vivaldi, a major composer. The concert will be"neld In the Garrigan gyro at 8p.m. and is open to the public.
