Published by the Students of Kuemper High School Vol. 23 Carroll, Iowa, Daily Times Herald, March 5, 1976 No. 23 Obasanjo Takes Nigeria's Reins Girls' Track — Off and Running! Bv PnH! Siirwinin »!_!_« ;_* «• ,, . . ^-^ By Patti Sundrup The Knight women thin- claBs are off! A third girls' track season is underway with approximately seventy girls involved, with Mr. John Davis as head coach. A strong program will be developed as thirty-six of the seventy are freshmen. There are sixteen returning letter-winners with five of the top six point winners returning. "We look for an exciting girls' track season. The Kuemper girls set twelve new school records in 1975 and brought home one first place trophy in the Carroll Relays. We hope to do much better this year," commented Head Coach Davis. Coach Bernard Walusz has had the girls on a weight training program for the past three weeks. Other assistant coaches include Mr. Ryan in girls' sprinters, Mr. Hayes in the long jump, high jump and quarter mile, Mr. Templemeyer in hurdles, and Mr. Hennigan in distance events. Along with organizing the entire track program, Mr. Davis will basically be in shot-distance and softball throw. When asked what she expected from the season, returning letterwinner Jolene Heinrichs stated, "I expect it to be a good season because I think everyone will be working a lot harder. I'm anxious to work with the new coaches and to see the new girls, especially the younger ones." "Kuemper has never qualified a girl for the state track meet, and that is a mark that we hope to erase this year," commented Mr. Davis. He added, "I feel that we have three or four individuals and a couple of relay teams that have the potential to qualify for the state meet." Assistant Coach Hayes commented, "The girls made a great improvement last year and broke a lot of records. If they dedicate themselves to every practice and every meet, then they should progress even more." The team may have a tough time during April because there are about ten invita- tionals during that month. "Our toughest meet will be the Sioux City Invitational for Girls because it will be one of our first meets and we really won't be able to have that many practices before it comes up," stated Mr. Ryan. Practice for the girls officially begins Monday, March 8. Students Show Scientific Skills By Julie Tigges This weekend, March 7 and 8, Kuemper will hold its annual Science Fair. It is open to the general public on Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m. The judging will take place on Saturday, starting at noon and is expected to continue all afternoon. This year, the judges are from Buena Vista College in Storm Lake. It is estimated that 100 to 150 science and math projects will be exhibited. Many different topics have been researched, including projects on alcoholism, germicides, and plant growth. Sister Francis Xavier, head of Kuemper's science department, commented, "It's a great learning experience for the students. It's an opportunity for them to do a project by themselves and come up with a finished product, theory, or hypothesis." A hard-working scientist, junior Kathy Rupiper remarked, "I think being in the Science Fair will be a good experience. I think everyone should try it." WEIGHT COACH Bernie Walusz demonstrates the use of the muscle toning equipment at the field house during a girls' track practice. 'Fat Tuesday' Noted in Annual Mardi Gras By Kris Daeges On Tuesday, March 2, the Kuemper gym and cafeteria was once again transformed into a gay festival setting for the annual Mardi Gras celebration.

By Julie Stalzer Last Sunday was the close of the girls' C,YO basketball season with the "Hustlers" capturing first place and the "H.R.'s" taking second. Third went to the "Dedham Doers" and the St. Lawrence Sophomores came in fourth. Mrs. Spieler commented, "I was very pleased that so many girls took such an interest in it.

Celebration '76 ByJayneStaley Perhaps some of you, who by chance walk past 105 on your way to or from classes, might have noticed a "slight" change in regards to the selection of music that has-been sung for the past two months.

However, the purpose of Mardi Gras at Kuemper is more than one last "wild fling" before Lenten moderation. It's also designed to raise money to be given in parts to the Student Council, various missions, and towards the payment of student fees for Kuemper students who are in need. Due to everyone's cooperation and hard work, this year's receipts were approximately $2.200: Sophomores Rich Ocken and Sheryl Bueltel reigned as King and Queen over the Mardi Gras activities. They captured the title with, total collections of $161.04 for their division. Rich felt the "$161.03 I contributed probably helped." The freshmen candidates Danny Kokenge and Barbara Hulsing drew a close second with a total of $151.00. followed by junior candidates. Denny Rutten and JoanSchreck with $126.25. The seniors pooled $66.72 for their candidates. Steve Windschitl and Jo Heinrichs. Projects planned and carried out by homerooms consisted mostly of games, raffles, and. of course,-food. The most successful project was selling of pop by room 206. which profited $187.81. Perhaps the most unusual project was the waterbed raffle offered by room 204. The lucky winner was junior Steve Meyers, who "didn't particularly care to comment on his prize." Other-raffle winners included: Jim Comstock, calculator; LoriHausmanand Jo Oswald, a wonder dog each; Marilyn Heithoff, bean bag; Mrs. Robert Louis, $50 gift certificate for stereo equipment; Wanita Irlbeck, eight-track tape pla'yer: Shelly Tigges, $50; and Peg Williams, a clock radio. The Hula Hoop tournament of room 220 was won by Shelly Lasher with a winning time of' 23 minutes 13 seconds. She was awarded $5 for her efforts. Mr. Guy expressed his reaction to Mardi Gras, "I didn't WIN anything! !" Overall, the students and faculty enjoyed an afternoon of fun and competition. Staff Co-Editors: Lori Beckman, Dave 'Donovan Reporters: Patti Sundrup, Kris Daeges, Julie Stalzer, Juh'e Tigges, Sue Potthoff, Lori Beckman, Jayne Staley Photographers: Mary Jo Baumhover, Tony Martin Advisor: Mr. Robert Galligan LAGOS— (NEA) —Nigeria is unlikely to change course under its new head of state. Gen. Obasanjo, the former chief of staff, was Gen. Mur- tala Mohammed's closest confidant and he has already vowed to continue the "dynamic" policy of his assassinated friend. The supreme military council, which collectively makes all policy decisions, has been left intact after the botched coup attempt on Feb. 13. Col. Dimka of the army's physical training corps, who announced the coup on the radio and is alleged to have shot Gen. Mohammed, is still on the run; he is said to have been at an all-night champagne party before he acted. Col. Dimka failed to rally any significant numbers of soldiers behind his attempt, even if the statement by the 1st infantry division's commander that the trouble was confined to Lagos may not be quite accurate. .Another member of the government lost his wife — Col. Ibrahim Taiwo, governor of Kwara state, who was kidnapped, shot and buried on the morning of the failed coup. There have been reports of arrests in Ibadan in the west, where the 2nd infantry division is stationed, and of disturbances at Kano in the north. This last report has been strongly denied by the government, and the Reuters correspondent was expelled for putting it out. Kano is the center of northern chauvinism and it was there that a pogram against Ibos took place in 1966, before the Biafra war. Any suggestion that something similar is in the offing could have serious consequences throughout the country. Gen. Obasanjo, who is a Yoruba from the west, has Times Herald, Carroll, la. Q Friday, March 5, 1976 O taken care to cement the alliance with the northern Hausas by appointing as chief of staff Brigadier Shehuar Yar Adua, the former transport minister. He is credited with being behind most of the more radical policies of General Mohammed, also a Hausa. He was responsible for clearing up the appalling congestion in Lagos port and the cement scandal which threatened to wreck Nigeria's economy. Nigeria had been moving towards more left-wing policies under Gen. Mohammed, and the pressure is still in that direction. There has been the predictable student demonstration to claim that the CIA was behind Gen. Mohammed's murder because he had supported the Popular Movement in Angola. Last week the British high commission was attacked after it had been discovered that Col. Dimka had called on the high commissioner and demanded a telephone call to the former Nigerian leader, Gen. Gowon, in England. Wall Lake Woman In Hospital Tlm» Herald News Service WALL LAKE — Mrs. Emil Schluter and Lorraine visited Mrs. Bill Rohde at the Carroll Hospital Monday evening.
