During The course oT The hisTory oT indusTrial arTs, The name and Teaching obiecTives have changed considerably. ln The beginning iT was called craTTs, and laTer The name manual arTs was adopTed due To The TacT ThaT The craTT work was done by hand. As The years progressed and The nineTeenTh cenTury advanced, The name manual arTs was re- placed by manual Training. The principal purpose oT manual Training was To enable boys To go To The various shops and develop skill by making ioinTs. ln ThaT ouTmoded Training, boys made complicaTed ioinTs which were never used. WiTh The TwenTieTh cenTury, The name inclus- Trial arTs gained a TooThold. lT was ThoughT- as iT sTill is-ThaT indusTrial arTs should be a course in The pracTical arTs where knowledge, skills and apTiTudes help inTegraTed individuals live more usefully and happily in home, shop, and socieTy.

Fourth Petition In a world whose sense ot values seems to be so unbalanced, Catholic students depend on the Holy Father in this Holy Year to adjust the scales ot right and wrong, ot justice and prejudice. Youth tinds the answer in the l-loly Father's "that everywhere, but especially in Palestine, tranquility reign through a just solution ot problems, so that diverse social classes, smothering hatreds and putting aside disputes, may join together in justice and traternal concord . . . that the impoverished may obtain wherewithal to live decently trom their own labors, and when these tail, may receive the necessities ot lite and suitable assistance trom the liberality and charity ot those who are better ott." The Fifth Petition ot our l-loly Father was tor peace. The otticial holy year seal is the symbol ot peace. ,M 3 4 5 X 5 M5 v , gs., f if T 5 'ffl , , www fwwmgeg-'Q A.

In TacT, The Pioneers were able To posT only an eighT-won, ThirTeen-losT record Tor The sea- son. BuT There was one Thing oT which The Pioneer dribblers could boasT, and ThaT was The TacT ThaT They were able To Throw aT leasT a scare inTo any one oT Their opponenTs. The compleTe season could be divided inTo Two eras. The TirsT era, ThaT period up To The end oT The TirsT semesTer, could adeguaTely be called The Mike-Corken era. The resT oT The season could be called The Bill-Dye era. In The Corken era, Mike scored 219 poinTs ouT oT a Team ToTal oT 555, while in The Dye era, Bill had I2I poinTs ouT oT a Team ToTal oT 270. Corken appeared in I4 games, while Dye ap- peared in 7, and TogeTher The Two Torwards ToTaled 340 poinTs ouT oT a Team ToTal of 825. Along abouT The Time when The TirsT semes- Ter was coming To an end, Coach Bob Ma- loney had a dream.

As IT Turned ouT, MaIoney's dream proved To be iusT ThaT and noThing more, because Mike Corken broke a bone in his IeTT elbow in a game wiTh Corpus ChrisTi high. The nexT game Dye became eligible and was Torced To Take on The burden IeTT by Corken, who was ouT OT acTion Tor The resT oT The season. OT course, when Dye Took over, The oTher members oT The Team were Tinally beginning To show some consisTency, and The load car- ried by Corken Tor I4 games was IighTened To a cerTain degree. The TacT remains, however, ThaT a sophomore who is able To Take over a ball club, musT have Tremendous possibiIiTies.

No matter whether we are reared in mansions or log cabins, we inherit man's great- est treasure-the silver spoon of freedom! Freedom is everywhere in America. Poor youngsters can and do become rich and famous men. Folks speak the truth as they see it because opinion is molded by the public rather than by politicians. Freedom of worship and freedom from fear are accepted as a matter of course in a country bossed by the people. Unfortunately, freedom isn't free. General Washington and his men made the down-pay- ment at Valley Forge and Yorktown. For almost two hundred years, brave men have met the installments with sweat and blood. But keeping DEERE JOHN DEERE 0 E i our land free is no task for heroes a1one-"Free- dom is everybody's job!" You strengthen America and make it more productive by mastering your job and giving a few extra licks to your daily tasks. You show your faith in the American way when you take time to vote in local as well as national elections. You make democracy work when you respect your neighborls right not only to disagree with you, but to have his say. Don't be content with flying the colors on Flag Day and parading on the Fourth of July- help to make our democracy a living, working reality 365 days of the year. We have inherited priceless freedomg as long as we keep it, the poorest of us is rich!
