Editorial Sunday, May 29, marks a day of triumph for 108 members of the senior class. At 2:30 o'clock in the afternoon, these seniors are scheduled to receive their treasured diplomas. As spokesman for our senior class, we would like to extend our sincere gratitude to: Our parents, for supporting us, educating us, and caring for our needs throughout these years; Our teachers, for exercising patience, understanding and prudence in guiding us to the threshold of society; Our pastors, for continually availing themselves to assist us and their concern for our well- being; Our athletic mentors, for using the medium of sports to teach us firm principles of fair play and sportsmanship; Our leaders in government, for faithfully striving to protect the common good; Our society, for better educating us in the ways of our fellow man; Our benefactors, whose help and sacrifice made Garrigan possible. To all of these, the seniors extend a hearty "Thank You", realizing that it was their faith in them which brought them to the doorway of adulthood. Editors Michelle Erpelding Patrick Crawford "Roman Holiday" As Juniors Hold Prom By Joan Kohlhaas Guests at the Junior - Senior Prom, held May 18, were transported back to old Rome with the theme "Roman Holiday." The guests were met at the door by two Roman guards. The slaves took their wraps. Inside of the gym they were transported to a garden scene of Old Rome in the year 14 A. D. In the center of the gym was a fountain to make the scene realistic. The stage was converted to the Temple of Vesta. Also on the stage were the busts of great men, like Ceasar, Tacitus and Livy. From Mount Vesulus the guests were able to get ambrosia from Juniper and the necter of Neptune. The orchestra for the evening was Freddy Fredrick's. It was the largest orchestra to ever play at Garrigan, consisting of nine pieces. Work started on the Prom in the middle of January, under the direction of Sister Mary Alfred, 0. S. F. class moderator, and the junior class officers. Much of the work of the committees was done in private homes in the spare time of the students. All the members of the Junior class were divided into six committees with a class officer as the chairman of each.

Star Dust By Patricia Loebig Seniors are really true and blue - so they tell us. We do enjoy our seniors- not for solemn thoughts of a new life out of Garrigan, but for stunts they've pulled as normal, lifelike teenagers. One thing John Schneider is going to miss is pondering over those terrifically hard geometry problems. Linda Dodds is really experimenting in art - speaking of muddy water colors. Hazel McEnroe, too, is very original in art - she knows what muddy water colors are. Everyone keeps asking Denny Hudspeth what happened to his finger. Robert Schmitt prepares to demonstrate his solid fuel rockets as Daniel Owens and John Zaugg also unveil their science projects. John exhibited a Van de Graaf generator while Dan showed some glass he etched with hydrofluoric acid. Bob Gengler thinks he has a green thumb from all his.plow- ing experience. Don Potthoff had better get a new muffler on his car - or' maybe even an old one. I guess you can't hear yourself think. So the seniors will graduate leaving many memories, some good, some bad, behind. I guess we'll soon find out what it's like to leave - but we do wish the class of '66 the best of everything. ••™J!M""™«^ Honor Roll Students Feted By Nancy Courtney Approximately one hundred honor students from both Garrigan and Algona High Schools and their respective parents were guests of the Rotary Club, Lions Club, Kiwanis Club, Kossuth Bar Association, and Junior Chamber of Commerce at a special banquet held Monday, April 26, in the Garrigan gym.

HOOD'S Algeria's Only Home-Owned Super Market By Fran Goecke Seniors now have one topic of conversation - graduation. Soon the classes of 1966 will don their caps and gowns, and formally bid farewell to Garrigan. They will bring to a close four years filled with work, worry fun, and friendships, only to start out on another path of life. There will be mixed feelings as the seniors leave - regret, anxiety , sadness, and maybe a bit of fear. As they look back in retrospect over their high school years, they recalled pleasant memories of past days, They carry with them thoughts of friendships made, experiences shared, opportunities gained, and mistakes made. The seniors will be starting out to find their place in an adult world and the seemingly petty things they experienced as high school students will be of lasting importance, all through the rest of their lives there wttl be reflections of the careful attention given them by those concerned with their welfare. By Kathleen Plathe Garrigan's varsity chorus attended the sixth annual Newman Festival held May 4. The day's activities began with an audition and practice session with Mr. Van Der Sloot, the Estherville choral director. The group sang the noon Mass and in the afternoon, each school sang a selection of their preference.

Soloists Robert Nichols, John Forbes, William Obrecht, Thomas Fuchsen, Francis Hildman and John Hamilton sang "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" with the chorus.
