Angles, Saxons, aftd the Jtit6, Thfeepeoj^had a te»
llglon of their own which was based on the ^orshi|} of
Nature. In this religion, tBere was a Spring holiday.
This holiday came after tbe long European winters
when the green once again appeared on the Earth.
When this time of year catne around, these peoples
would celebrate for days the fiuit that they had been
allowed to make it through another winter. This holi
day was known as Eostre.
Well, we're not Angles, Saxons or Jutes—iWe’re just ■
plain old Gryphons, Hit, It Is Easfer—the v6ry same
holiday that was celebrated in the Spring fifteen-
hundred years ago. One need not hav« any particular
religious belief to celebrate Easter for that is not the
only part of celebrating Easter. There's a new Earth
out there full of living things that are some of the
most beautiful things in the world. When you make It to
the beach this Easter or wherever you may be, re
member that you are kind of lucky to be on a planet
that IsnH all a polluted mess.

As many people know, Oe#ald
■ Beattie, a friend of many Sfu»
deBts here, died eatly Monday
morning, March 1 In Greens
boro. Gerald’s friendlydLs; os«
ition and witty remarks made
hliii one o( the most pleasant
and likeable personalities that
f havfe kaovn'.
My first Impression of Gerald
\frasn't nlje. At the time, 1
thought that he was cocky and
brash, and, for a while, we
were almo^ eneoiles. Tbe
climax of our friction came one
day when I said one word too
much and made him very angry.
proceeded to bounce me
across the bathroom floor as
though I was a basketball.
As time went by, though, I
came to realize that Gerald
wasn’t cocky Or brash. During
lunch periods, our conversa
tions covered many topics: race
relations, morals, gripes with
school rules, drugs, Vietnatq,
ate. I soon knew ttet he was
a truly concerned tndividual.,.
and an honest one. There wasn't
anything phony about Mm, He

No longer coukl she renaember those gfeat times at

hard time adjusting to the “j»ew Nancy."
We all arenH going to’vl*se our memory like
ffancy did, but we cari learn' something from her
exQarlences. Life comes day by day-changing all of
th^ time. We must use our memory to keep us in
good relation with our own worlds. Now, in Spring,
let's become aware and remember these unique times
for they won’t ever happen this way again.
