Our Train to Success Thomas Baldwin--Editor-in- chief Connie Kolbe--Assistant Editor Virginia Leech--Assistant Editor Sandra Pfierman--Typist Cynthia Schaab--Business Manager Nearly every student of Garrett High School has at one time or another heard the whistle of a diesel and the powerful thrust of the engines as a train pulls out. Garrett itself was built because of the railroad, and it has remained a major industry of the community. Garrett High School is like a train. There are six cars, numbered seven through twelve. To the passengers in cars seven through eleven, the train travels much too slowly; however, to those in car twelve, it travels too fast. As a student leaves the sixth grade and enters the seventh, he buys a ticket on the train which leads to success. He then travels t hrough studies, meets friends, and attends social activities. Come with us now as we lead you through the year of the " twist, ” past Council Capers, and over the Auburn Devils . There ' s the " toot " of the whistle. The train is heading for success .

The engines displayed their power throughout the trip against all opponents. 31 Season’s Scoreboard We They New Haven 6 37 Decatur 6 0 K-Ville 13 19 Bluffton 13 6 Elmhurst 27 6 Concordia 14 6 Angola 12 12 Auburn 16 12 Garrett ' s Railroaders ended the season in a thrilling game with Auburn by winning 16-12. Garrett ' s strong offensive line and hard-running backs did the trick. It was a hard-fought contest down to the final sec¬ ond, but Garrett held on to win. A 5-2-1 record was good enough to give us a second place in NEIC Gonference play. New Haven won the race for the Conference Championship with a very impressive 8-0 record.

Tom Steinmetz dives on a loose ball in an exciting play as Garrett conquers Elmhurst. The Garrett line tears through the Auburn line in a play which is to lead to a T.D.

The team suffered from inexperience and lack of height during the first half of the season; however, following a near-victory over mighty Bluffton, the boys got on the right track and the train steamrolled onward. By Sectional time, the team was tasting a trophy . After mopping up the Hamilton Marines, the tourney twelve was stopped by a fired-up Butler squad in an exciting game, 56-54 . A game to be remembered was the exciting Harlan game where the Rail¬ roaders scored an overtime victory by sinking a last second shot. Tom Funk led the team in scoring for the year. With a young squad, Garrett should make up for an 8-14 record in future years . Senior Tom Steinmetz shoots another jumpshot through the nets as Garrett smashes Avilla.

Senior Joe Zems heaves the shot in a warm-up be¬ fore a track meet. Ace hurdler Jerry Thomas leads in the low hurdles bringing the Railroaders another victory. 40 Studying and Striving Our train to success could not be com¬ plete without the engineers--the faculty members. The most important function of our train is to enrich our minds. This is carried out in the classrooms where the teachers start the engine and speed it on its journey. Mr. Hudson directs activities Mr. Cale Hu on, Superintendent The Railroader train continued to make much progress this past year with the assistance of Mr. Cale Hudson, Superin¬ tendent, and the members of the School Board. Many improvements were made over the summer. The most noticeable of these were the new furniture and general new decor of the typing room.

The favorite time of day for Jr. High students is the lunch period. This is not too much different from the High School, so maybe it is a sign of adulthood. Among the Jr-Hi noon activities are volleyball and basketball in the auditorium.

New fields will soon open to each graduate. Success!!! Now we come to the end of our jour¬ ney. Our train has reached its final terminal. However, is this really the end? No, the train to success never stops running. It is always picking up new passengers and taking on new crews. Many times the former tra velers be¬ come the engineers. The end of the trip should not be called the end. Instead it should be labeled " the beginning. ' ' There are new fields to be explored, new lessons to be learned, and new challenges to be met. There will always be the engi - neers to keep the train running, and there will always be the passengers who have the desire to learn. 95 We Thank Our Sponsors ,Abey Abram, Inc.
