His father is Professor of History and Art at Frank- fort University. Christ as he is better known .to us, came to Aitkin early in August of 1959, to spend one year at the Melvin Forsberg home, He was sponsored by the MYF of the Methodist Church. 'In comparing his own school, "Berchtesjoben," 8 private school for boys, with AHS, Chris slaiid, "ln Germany you go to school to learn," then he quickly added, "Oh yes, you learn here too, but you have fun along with it. Here school is like a. second home!" His subjects this year included: American History, English, social, solid geometry, chemistry and choir. In addition, Chris is taking French, Latin and physics by cor- respondence. Most surprising thing about America: "Not all things are big!" Most interesting experience: "The warm-heartedness of the people." New tihings Chris has done since coming: Water-skiing. trombone lessons, cfurch and school choir, debate, public school games sand dances, and attending the Minnesota State Fair! 1It was terrific and biglj Chris feels th-at he has learned a lot from his stay in Amer- ica, but we at AHS feel thatChris has done a lot for us. Know- ing him has been a valuablgfexperience for us all, and we sincerely hope he'l1 always have a soft spot in his heart for Aitkin and Aitkin High Svhool as Je sw Q97 dying K' , iii ' E55-T VT1if15Si??3??ii5isi-2 ',2gLQ1g1 : f-W ii5,222241?H'25f2,..q:- felis 75-Q f rr Wipe' Nploosh' ' 4' . f-s s-1. 11ers-f fuff.-fifr if L ' A H . ,., ,.,, """'f' f 1 I - liggliitf lif ' ' Ci e, 'lin g' f5f,'.ilLf' Wf fdisi K . f i s ' "if K ' Y . .. - . - - f , ..' ,. .. . g .,,, l ,ll .

From the standpoint of victories, the 1959-1960 basketball season was not too successful, but from the play of the Gobblers in every game, one could have never guessed it. Overall the team finished the regular season with a record of two victories and fifteen losses. Several of the games were very close and could have been victories for the Gobblers, but it just Wasn't in the books. The Gobblers lose two regulars, Captains Warren Petersen and Rich Fannemel, along with Loren Larson, by graduation this year. This loss will be felt next year, but the prospects are still bright for the coming year. 320151 NOV 20-Aitlrin 38, St. Cloud Cathedral 48 Nov. 28-Aitkin 49, Park Rapids 65 Dec. 4-Aitkin 41, Crosby-Ironton 58 Dec. 11-Aitkin 53, Staples 66 Dec. 12-Aitkin 38, Wadena 42 Dec. 18-Aitkin 41, Brainerd 82 Jan. 8-Aitkin 37, Little Falls 46 Jan. -Aitkin 39, St. Cloud Tech 56 Jan. 22-Aitkin 39, Crosby-Ironton 61 Jan. 23-Aitkin 48, Grand Rapids 62 Jan. 29-Aitkin 42, Staples 46 Feb. 5-Aitkin 41, Brainerd 74 Feb. 6-Aitkin 54, Wadena 49 Feb. 12-Aitkin 63, Little Falls 62 Feb. 19-Aitkin 41, St. Cloud Tech 82 Feb. 26-Aitkin 43, Tower-Soudan 65 Feb. 27-Aitkin 53, Virginia 64 Mar. 1-Aitkin 53, Coleraine 63 fzacfuafi my ZS an Low .fozan qflfalziy X H U B USGJIZ D. -Gross, WVR Paajanen, D.

FVVE Begin Gqyam Youth is an island bright in the sun across the sea, but there is no returning: the convoy moves relentlessly into the west and over the wake the seagulls crying. Better a hope lost than a life of lying, of all man's wisdom, truth is best. Small consolation, but the broken water glistens against the green stillness and the clouds are buoyant in the blue. Thus the vision, this the craving, and in the no-man'-s sea between, no flashing light, no harbour promised,- no course foretold but as the wind speaks to the calling birds. The island recedes, the familiar beauty fades, brilliant as June once and maiden-fresh, captive no more the hundred graces led in delight along the dappled lanes, with youth exalted in the morning sun. All this is gone now, and with its daring, the certain truth, the known shape of language bright on the lips of men. Farewell, then Time to turn from the dwindling vision, the grey ghost of failure, the dusk of youth, knowing that words are laggard movers out of their time and place, resistant always to a new meaning. The old hunger stays to meet the new craving: all else is gone. It is time to move.
