Four busloads of Garrigan students braved the trip, which lasted approximately 4 hours, to see the Bears take an aarly lead and never relinquish it. They appeared to have too much strength for the Knights as they out-rebounded, out-hustled and 'completely out-played a fine Kuemper team. Whenever it ap- .peared as if Carroll were nuking its move, Garrigan's five would shift into high jear and pull away by a comfortable margin. Following the game, an all- tourney team was selected which placed co-captains Dick Muller and Bill Reding among the eight named. Av an assembly last Tuesday morning Coach Steve McCall presented GHS with the Class AA championship trophy and a traveling trophy wMch goes to the current AA champion. Bookworming 'Hungry Planet' - With Tina Sister Mary Lou enjoys the compositions on "red" written by her freshman English classes. (Photo by Christine Obrecht) Tidal waves of news, varying from rumors to facts, rushed- through the halls of GHS this past week when Sister Mary Lou, CHM, graduate of Marycrest of Davenport, arrived to fill in the vacancy left on the teaching staff. Sister was able to fool about half the students who saw her in her modern black suit complete with heels and varying colored blouses. Yes, she really is a sister. Sister Mary Lou is living with the sisters at Wesley, an experiment in inter-community living. Formerly teaching junior high literature in Des Moinas, tht new member of the faculty now teaches freshnun English, religion and speech. Sister has tried to create original thinking by having her English classes individually brainstorm an idea such as "red". Brainstorming consists of writing down the first thoughts on an idea and building upon that. Commenting on Sister's arrival, Father Friedmann, superintendent, said, "We hope Sister Mary Lou has a long and enjoyable stay here at Garrigan and that many more of her community will join us in the future." Bits 'n Pieces Dear Editors, I wonder if everyone knows about the Student Council at present? Some think all we do is go to meetings during school, after, and on Sundays for pleasure! We have tried to make suggestions which we thought would better the school. With 512 students in a school there are always going to be some who disapprove; you know you can't please everyonel At the moment Mr. Cooper is trying to reorganize our Student Council and I must say, he 'is doing a fine job. We have put up a suggestion box from which we can get ideas. Maybe it's just lack of information - I know if I weren't Journalists Hear Tapes rtfi all thp iniirnalisin np ji* n .. «* mur*/^T-ITTTIT*-* .f^n.- * Since all the journalism students could not attend the Catholic School Press Association Convention in Milwaukee last Novem'«r, the class is now listening to tapes of some of the sessions there. These tapes include lectures by the Rev. Bernard J. Cooke,SJ;Mr.DonQuinn, managing editor of the ST. LOUIS REVIEW; and Mr. Josl Wells, editor of THE CRITIC of Chicago. All of the talks center on the general theme of growth in the Church through understanding of Vatican n. Receiving awards in the poster contest sponsored by Governor Hughes' committee on employment of the handicapped and by the Iowa Department of AMVETS were Darrell Brown, $7.50 award; John Murgen, $10 award; and Rebecca Hubert, honorable mention. Manners at home, school and in public were included in booklets entitled, "The Right Thing, to Do,"made by the typing classes' last week. They are displayed on the typing room bulletin board. on the Council I wouldn't know that we're getting a Juke Box, and maybe our class rings earlier. We are doing all we can at present and would appreciate any sound suggestions for betterment. Barb Winkel Historian of Junior Class Dear Editors, Why do we have a Student Council??? Is it just an organization that most schools have, or is it a special honor and place for the leaders of classes, to meet and discuss the problems of the kids and the school? I disagree almost completely, with our style at Garrigan. My idea of ..a student council is letting the students say and put into action what they think. I .think our officers should campaign for an office. When you come right down to facts, in the past year, what has the Student Council done on its. own to pass a new law or idea?' Isn't the official word always from the main office? Let's think about all these facts and see what can be done for a new and better Student Council! Jeanne Milder Fiction sections of our library are in constant use but an individual who wants to round out his education may find equally interesting material on the nonfiction shelves. The Hungry Planet by Mr. George Borgstrom. Whether you're doing research or just keeping up with today's problems, The Hungry Planet should be on your reading list. Mr. Borgstrom has made a 25 year* study of facts and figures in the food shortage problem. His findings are compiled in one volume. The Art of Being Human by Father William McNamara, OCD, Father McNamara, an experienced retreat master, tries to makes his readers understand the full purpose and meaning of life. ***'*************** THE STAR is published twice a month by the students of Garrigan High School, Algona, Iowa, 50511.
