    • A student cheer, "Go Goheen," would almost apply to the full basketball team at St. Joseph's High.
      Four members of the Irish clan Goheen, including three brothers and a cousin, are on the varsity squad.
      There always has been and always will be, it seems a Goheen at St. Joe'a
      It all started 24 years ago when Harry B Goheen from County Greenbrier (W. Va.,) and his wife, the former Ester M Ripley of Huntington, sent their first child to St. Joseph's.
      They had 12 children, 10 of them boys, and St. Joe has not been without a Goheen since Patricia, now 29, entered the elementary school here in 1929.
      Patricia is now Mrs. Walter P Gipprich of Reading, Pa.
      The others in the Goheen family include:
      Harry Jr. 27, Jimmy 25, Johnny 24, Robert 21, David 18, Richard 16, Tommy 15, Larry 13, Daniel 10, Martha 9 and Gale 6.
      All those from 6 through 18 are at St. Joseph's either elementary or high school, and David, Richard and Tommy are the brother on the basketball squad. A cousin Denny Joe 17, also is on the team.
      Harry, Jimmy and Johnny, all athletes served in the armed forces overseas. Harry is a high school coach at St. Joseph's Ironton, Ohio; Jimmy attends Valparaiso University, and Johnny, just back from service in Japan, attends St. Joseph's College in Philadelphia.
      Little Gale, if he progresses as expected, will graduate in 1965 to maintain an unbroken brother and sister attendance at the school over 36 years. The third generation is still to be heard from.
