Both Cooper, head football coach and athletic director at Garrigan, and McCall, head basketball coach, have compiled impressive records while at Garrigan and carry high hopes of continuing their fine work in their respective fields. Both coaches are very optimistic in looking ahead to next year's teams. For football, Cooper has nine lettermen returning and the material for an excellent passing attack.

In spite of losing five letter men and the heart of his defense, Coach McCall still' has four monogramers returning, two of them starters and a third the top reserve. He says in short, "We'll have a real good club next year in spite of forseeable changes." "For with God nothing shall be impossible." — Luke 1:37 Being a Christian today is not the challenge that it used to be. We can practice our beliefs quietly, without fear of persecution or public embarrassment. For some of us, it is almost effortless. We live our religion one day a week, and perhaps only part of that day. And, what about God? He doesn't appear before us with a personal message of salvation and promise. He does not bring miracles for our eyes to see and our wisdom to ponder. Can we believe then, that nothing is impossible with God? We must. The truth of God is present everywhere in our world, in the universe, in the wonders of all creation.
