Star Dust By Patricia Loebig With the advent of snow, ice, wind, came various small incidents that accompany snowbound people. One studious person, with long bangs, was bound to get her homework finished. She bent* over ' a candle and singed her fringe, Mr. McCall had no problems, whatsoever, living across the street from a supermarket. Barb and Shirley Stoffel had unexpected company - probably expecting Santa - but all they got was a dog, Bob Elbert had a hard time finding his car. It's not easy unless you know his 'Merry Oldsmobile.' Becky Lickteig had fun creating a new delicacy - toasted toes - from getting too near a gas oven. When asked what he did when he was snowed in, Joe Ringsdorf replied, "Who was snowed in? Only Wesley 1 Everybody else has snow plows." Some say, "Who was snowed in? Others just admit the uncomfortable circumstances. Dick Bleich tells of keeping warm with sixteen blankets and four rugs. Soloists in the contest were; Victoria McGuire, Hazel McEnroe, Mary Jo Becker, Susan Nelson and Ruth McEnroe. On Friday and Saturday, April 22 &id 23, the State Large Groups Music Contest will be held at Milford, Representing Garrigan will be the Varsity Chorus.
