friends to the end! October 26,1973, was Big-Little Sister Day. It began with each Senior and Junior being matched with a Freshman or a Sophomore for a little sister. This was followed by a trip through the "Haunted House," lunch, and topped off with the movie, "Marnie." The day was one of the many traditions of st. Joe's, but like all our traditions, they wi II cease at the end of this year, leaving us truly - FRIENDS TO THE END!

some of the nicest people we know work at st. joe.
Miss Sue McEnheimer, best school secretary ever.
Pastor, Fr. R. Lux, affectionately called "Papa Lux."
Mrs. M. Bailer, our efficient school accountant.
Mr. E. Eifert, melodious music coordinator.
Mr. R. Weaver, kindest "dad" and custodian.
Mrs. Dorothy Seibert, the wonderful lady who knows how to serve others with care.
did i say that?
"We reall y ought to stand for the speaker. "
"Ah, so they did plargarize me."
Who said, "General monkey business?'"
"Those hair pins are sticking your ear!"
"This is a place for study, not for snoozing!"
"This library is so quiet I actually get bored . "
in a world of differences Compared to other schools, we don't have enough students to make up one class, yet we have four. The 26 freshmen are quite a group. They're small so it seems they yell a little louder to be heard, and when they get together as a class they are all together. There are 54 sophomores in our world and they add a lot of variety to the school with their intellectuals and their toughies. You can find them fighting in the hallway and studying in the classrooms, or vice versa, which ever the case may be. Juniors, about 45 of them, cannot be overlooked as a class with a lot of initiative as they try to overcome the hassles of their first and last St. Joe prom. And it seemed as if they were going to tell the whole world when they get their class rings. Maybe they did. Those 47 seniors are on their way out the door but they're not going out without a bang. They're ending with a long history of book and teacher destruction and yet there is a soft spot in each one's heart as they think of present high school days turning into memories of the past. . Yes, we have four classes filled with fight and spirit, yet each is unique, as all the classes have been throughout the years of St. Joe's.

The Junior Class of 1975, was one of very special feel ings. This year was to be the year when the Juniors received their "class rings" and it was their first and last prom as a St. Joe's student. The day of class rings was one of surprise and great apprec iation, for we waited so long. It was the real proof we were st. Joe's" upper cl assmen". Working on the Prom was another big deal in our life. The idea of having to get a band within eight weeks of the Prom was one concern which we won't forget. We as Juniors will never forget the fun and happy times we had here at St. Joe's. We may be going our different ways at the end of the year, but we will always be the 1975 Class of St. Joseph and we will always hold our heads up and walk tall. --Millie Stover CI ass of '75

To Our Grand St. Joe's We stand together here today as a family built to stay. We can never forget the times we've wandered through these halls with not so gracious calls. As we salute our school a tear falls gently from our eye, as we take one last look out the wi ndow at the sky. To remember all the arguments that were so small, and how we'd bui It a wall between a friend~hip that was tall. As we watch our teachers leaving one by one, a last salute we give to one. â€˘ The one we SJ ive our Grand Sal ute is to our God, the eacl'ier of us all. Shades on windows slowly close, as girls take leave of. a school they chose. Our faithful friends are memories, we're not to share every scene. Little sisters are growing up, leaving the old to strive for the new. Big sislers grow older and add to their wisdom. St. Joe's will stand remembered as a school of unity. Unity fo friendship, peace and love. We take our love with us as the doors close to a final end. We stand and admire the sign called St. Joe's, as we walk away with new seeds to be sown. --Violet Piekenbrock Class of '76
