This Is a very popular saying that really says a lot when you sit down and think about It for awhile. If we are mature, we will not compromise our lives, but instead give ourselves a purpose In life which will aid us in the development as a person. "The purpose of life Is not to live, but to die." This saying also is quite popular. Of course there can be many different interpretations, but my idea of this saying is that we should not keep living our life as we are, but we must die to ourself. We have to do away with our bad habits and give our lives more meaning. According to the Webster's New World Dictionary, maturity means full-grown, ripe, fully developed, perfected, to make or become mature. So, maturity involves a change, or transformation, from what, it was before. Of course maturity doesn't just pertain to the soul. Maturity is really the union of the body and the soul for the development of the person. Some think all adults are mature, but If you really know what maturity is, you will not agree with that. Just because you're old doesn't mean you are mature. When you are mature you have convictions and you live and act accord- Ing to them. Your convictions and beliefs are an Important part of your life. Life's Goals A mature person realizes that he must have a goal In life, and in order to develop himself as a person, he must be open and honest with others. He must be aware of his own needs as well as the needs of others. He can't be wrapped up in his own little world and forget about the people around him. A mature person has gut- level communication with himself and others. He doesn't put on a mask and try to fool himself and others. If he is in a crowd and he feels the crowd's purpose is wrong, he speaks and says what he feels is right. He isn't afraid to do what he believes In. ROLLS A mature person Is aware of his abilities. He knows his strong qualities as well as his weaker ones. He also realizes that he cannot be totally independent, but that he must depend upon others and especially on God. He can look at himself, his life, his relationship with other people, as well as his relationship with God. You can always spot a mature, person because he stands out even If he doesn't say anything, because "his actions will speak louder than words." Not perfection as a final goal, but the ever-enduring process of perfecting, maturing, refining, Is the aim of living. --A Spaldlng Senior Terry Stref! endec bring 6! j>'63,« thelrh« ", and led ou b Hub tied out The JV ThlSfP Ll«) Wng tl mparea As ROI [ty wa Dan equal!: WINS, Pictured here below are the smiling frosh.

OVER "Wayne Horkey isn't happy unless he fouls out," says Dave Kinney. Despite Wayne's exit in the last two seconds of the game, the Spartans came out the winner by the score of 56-47 over Gehlen here, Wednesday, the 21st. However, Wayne came on strong with field goals and free throws, making the top score of 15 points. Following him were Jerry Langel and Jim Schuver with 10 points, Dave Klein and Steve Plathe with 9, and Glen List with 3. Spaldinp; dominated the game for its entirety with Gehlen having a run of points in the lust few minutes after the sub.', were in. --Joe Schuver J. Varsity The Le Mars Gehlen Jays swooped down on the Spalding Junior Varsity and carried off a score of 64-52 Friday night at Spalding.
