CLASS OF '61
JUST IN! LATEST RESEARCH ON THE "AGING BRAIN!"
not all bad news. Did you know that in many ways the brain improves with age? "The brain is a complex government of neural systems, and each has its own developmental
course as we mature," says Dr. Louis Cozolino, a psychology professor at Pepperdine University. "Some of these networks continue to improve as we age, such as expert knowledge, complex problem solving, and emotional stability."
All things that may have been somewhat lacking
in high school. (Editor's
theme in these newsletters is to remind us in various ways of our teen-age years. How many of you know that Bo Diddley lived in D.C. in the '60s?

football fans, especially the fans
of our Washington team, will have fond
memories of John Riggins. We thought we'd let you know that Riggins is now a resident of Cabin John. Although his playing time was reduced by the players' strike during the 1982

performance came in Super Bowl XVII
with 166 yards rushing, including the
game winning 43 yard touchdown run
in the Redskins' 27-17 win over the
more memorable, according to Riggins himself was when he met Justice Sandra Day O'Connor at a party
on Sandy baby, loosen up." He said later, "I'll be remembered for (saying that) much longer than for being an MVP."
