She Lives On... 4-Algona (la.) Upper Des Maine* Life's accomplishments live on even in death. Students and faculty of Garrigan will not easily forget Sister Mary Sarah, OSF. To them she was the quiet little sister whose steady pace carried her silently through the halls each day. To the students, she was the Latin teacher who didn't seem to need a book; whose bits of added information made Latin easier to understand. To the faculty, Sister Sarah was the teacher who was always willing to lend a helping hand yet asked nothing in return; the sister who had taught at Garrigan since the day it began. To Garrigan parents, she was the sister who always knew everyone; who had a friendly smile and greeting for everyone she met. No, death cannot destroy the image of a good life. Sister Sarah will live on for all those who knew her.

Cage Corner — Garrigan Eyes Diocesan Crown BY STEVE REDING The Garrigan Golden Bears began their bid for a third Diocesan Championship when ,they met St. Edmonds at Fort >odge, Sunday night. The win- .er of this game then meets the inner of the Carroll Kuemper - lioux City Heelan game. Garrigan and Hoelan should be rated as co-favorites because of their records and also important, their rankings in the latest U. P. L poll which ranks Garrigan ninth with Heelan receiving a number of votes but not quite enough to get a spot among the top ten. This marks the first time in years Heelan has been in the tournament; it is now playing ba- cause of the Diocesan rearrangements. The Boars seem ready for the tournament as, to date, they have won ten in a row. This features their victory over St. Johns of Bancroft, in which the Bears shattered their school scoring mark by hitting 104 points; the old record was 92. • ••••••••••••••••«•c #• Garrigan's annual Mardi Gras Dance will take place on Feb. 7 at the K.C.
