When September ,arrives
And activities starr,
Much fills our days,
XVe can't tell them apartg
We cherish them all,
But our memory's not clear,
So in order to keep them,
W'e've stored them in here.
Now as they all happened,
We've recorded each treasure.
Arid when we have finished,
You can read them with pleasure.

H . During the "59" grid season the Gobbler eleven showed fight, determination and spirit, even if the
win-lose" record wasn't the best We've had. The Gobblers' coach, Mr. Conner, and his assistants, V.
Foster, B. Emerson and J. Fremling, worked hard with the boys and taught them much.
At the close of the season with two victories in eight starts, the Gobs wound up third in Mid-State
Conference and in the cellar in the Central 6 loop.

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.

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.
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.
