6-Algona (la.) Upper Des Moinei Tuesday, Sept. 19, WASHINGTON Men?- Go- Round WASHINGTON- It's going to be a long, rough autumn at Ford factories around the nation. The United Auto Workers have blood in their eye. As early as last April Walter Reuther confided to his advisers that once he lined the men up to march, it would be difficult to keep them from marching. Simultaneously Ford management also has blood in its eye. Ford has had the most liberal labor policy of any of the big three and Ford executives resent being rewarded in return by this strike. They figured Reuther picked on them because they were likely to cave more easily. It was Henry Ford, Sr., who startled the industrial world many years ago by paying tils men a flat $5 a day. Other business leaders called him crazy. Wages have now increased in the automobile industry so the average is around $145 a week. The three major companies offered Reuther a50cents-an-hour increase, but lie held out for profit sharing. What has rankled the auto workers is the tremendous amounts being spent by the Ford Foundation for education and phi- lanthrophy. Actually the Ford Foundation, now under former White House aid McGeorge Bundy, gets no funds from the Ford Motor Company. It lias done a most constructive job, and all of its money comes from previously donated funds. However, a new foundation, The Ford Motor Company Foundation, was established in 1951, which between then and 1966 has received $95,300,000 from the Ford Company. - o - - A SOUR START - Wage negotiations got off to a sour start in Detroit when Malcolm L. Denise, Ford Labor relations vice president and a skilled negotiator, opened .the DREW PEARSON talks by announcing: "I want to present the company's offer." He tended to stress the word "the," which brought an immediate reaction from Reuther. "Do you mean your first offer?" asked Reuther. "No, I mean the Ford offer our proposals for a settlement," declared Denise. "If you mean your final offer, as I assume, that represents an attitude that is rather shocking to me," snapped Reuther. "In other words, you are taking a firm and hard position. You refuse to budge. You really don't want to bargain with us." At another point, Reuther was demanding pre-lunch "washup time" for auto workers who engage in grimy work on the assembly line. "Some of this work, as you know, is so dirty that it requires fifteen minutes [or a man to properly wash the dirt and grease from his hands," he said. "That may be true," replied Denise. "But the management should not be assessed for that. Washing hands before eating is still a matter of personal choice." "I do not agree," shot back Reuther. "Even the clothes of some workers get so filthy that the company sets aside an area in the cafeteria where canvas is placed on the benches where they eat. Apparently the company feels it Js more important to keep the benches clean than the worker's hands." "I don't want to get into a debate with you on that aspect," replied Denise. "The company still feels that washing hands before eating is a matter of personal choice." - o - - NEW YORK'S RIOT CALM - It's been no accident that Harlem, biggest Negro community in ,.. the ( ,world, has_been fairly quiet Scoreboard We're interested in how they look on the hook. And how fast we can help get 'em there. Our job is balanced nutrients and scientific recommendations based on extensive research and testing. Total feeding programs to bring cattle up to bred-in-ability. And we're learning all the time. We just added more cobalt and zinc to beef concentrates. We found that by adding more cobalt and zinc, gains and feed efficiency improve. We can't Discuss here all the things we've got going in our beef feeding program. But our feed man can. Will you call him? @ l this summer, while Newark and Detroit have flared. Mayor John Lindsay and Sen. Jack Javits, R., are largely responsible. It was Sen. Javits who recommended Sanford D. Garelik, New York's new inspector of police, an officer who was down the line in the police hierarchy but was promoted to top job. Hehasbeen a phenomenal success. Mayor Lindsay helped to put across the $75 million appropriation for the big cities summer program. Javits, who is on the Senate Appropriations Committee, also helped. Once the money was voted and New York got its quota, $7 million, Lindsay knew exactly where to put it. He had 9,000 jobs filled right away. New York's police force has long been integrated, with Puerto Rican policemen detailed to Puerto Rican Harlem and Negro cops detailed to Negro Harlem. - o - - MERRY-GO-ROUND - George Hamilton may have been given the gate by Lynda Bird Johnson but it hasn't hurt his acting career. He will play the lead in "Funny Girl" on tour this fall, and as a result of the publicity Lynda Bird gave him his salary will be $7,500 a week, plus 25 per cent of the gross of grosses over . .Says Secretary of Agriculture Orville Freeman: "When an editor read his own death notice in his own newspaper, he telephoned his news room to ask, 'I want to talk to the man who wrote the announcement of my death.' There was a long pause. 'Where are you speaking from?* was the reply." - o - - CONGRESSIONAL ETHICS - COOP Beef Feeding Program Whitlemore Co-op Elevator HOBARTON BRANCH) CQ . op anf , Golden Sun Feeds For top performance CO-OP t*foJine, fuel oil, oil* and lubricant* Telephone 295 - 5614 "Funny Girl" $47,000 a week. Ifs been nine months since Rep. Adam Clayton Powell, the Harlem Globe-Trotter, was kicked out of Congress for globetrotting too freely on other people's credit cards. Finally the House Ethics Committee, under conscientious veteran Mel Price, D-I1L, has been getting down to the problem of setting up a code of ethics to prevent similar conduct by other Congressmen. Committee members didn't like it at all, however, when Rep. Ogden Reid of New York, an impatient Republican, issued a press statement declaring the American people had lost confidence ' in Congress. His fellow Republican, Rep. Charley Halleck of Indiana, immediately jumped all over Reid at an Ethics Committee hearing. Halleck is sometimes called "Two Cadillac Charley" because of his ability to get Cadillacs during the scarce war period. "I just don't think if s true that the country has lost confidence in Congress," Halleck exploded. Rep. Reid, who once served as editor of the New York Herald Tribune and as U.S. Ambassador to Israel, stuck to his guns. "I think there is no question but what there has been a loss of confidence in the integrity of Congress," he replied. "If you look at press accounts or what the average fellow on the street says, there has been a concern about the Adam Clayton Powell case, about Senator Dodd." - o - -WOMEN AND POLITICS- Women are playing hob with politics all over the world. Shirley Temple has cast her curls into the California ring for Congress. . . Svetlana Stalin has churned up the Soviet government with her memoirs more than the Near East war. . . .In China the wife of Mao Tse-tung, Chiang Ching, is in a jealous rage against Madama Wang Kuang-mei, wife of Chinese President Liu Shao-chi, which is probably one reason for Mao's ouster of President Liu and the current China convulsions... Now there is woman trouble in Cuba between Celia Sanchez, close companion of Fidel Castro, and Vilma Espin, wife of brother Raul Castro. Both women are reported maneuvering for power in the Cuban communist hierarchy. . . .A third woman, Haydee Santamaria, has also risen to power in Cuba but isn't involved in the feud. . . .A Cuban lady also once gummed up the politics of Panama. She was so charming that President Arnulfo Arias used to hop across the Caribbean to woo her on weekends. Arnulfo was considered pro-Nazi. While he was enjoying the sweet companionship of the Cuban lady, the United States conspired with his Panamanian opponents to keep him in Cuba. Today Arnulfo, back in Panama, is doing his best to defeat the far-sighted Panama Canal Treaty that LBJ lias recently negotiated with Arnulfo's rivals who now run the Panamanian government.

(Photo by Jim Bristow) "I believe the student council can be an effective instrument enabling the administration to gain a solid insight into responsible student opinion ... .To this end, I pledge my abilities," stated all-school senior president Ronald Gilbride during his campaign speech prior to the elections. Also elected were. John Winkel as junior class president and Mike Black as sophomore class president. Ron also reminded his classmates that "the total impact of a school lies in the functioning of all its students; it can be no better than we are. Whether we realize it or not, we are adding to the heritage that is Garrigan's by what we have done In the past and will do this year." The '67 elections took a new form with nominations one week prior to the elections. During the week the four nominees from each class campaigned. Last Wednesday speeches were made in the afternoon immediately before the elections. This year there will be several changes in the student council. Instead of six council members for each class, there will now be four with representatives from several major activities. Among the other nominees were seniors Tim Molacek, Jack Muller and Jerry Plathe; juniors Tom Black, Jerry Besch and Mike Kajewski; and sophs Bob Bernhard, Dave Besch and Merrill Bormann. The remainder of upperclass officers will be elected during this week. Freshmen will elect their officers in October. Global Village Invades Room 17 • • • • • • i • • • • • • i i i i i i By Tina Obrecht Just for the sake of thinking about something a little bit different, let's talk about Room 17. Odd ? Yes, very, but let's do it anyway. What happens in Room 17 each day that's so unique? First, journalism students are studying, at present, mass media or, for purposes of comparison, communication of the word. They are Kollasch Leads Marching Band I I I I I I I I I I I The long and the short of the band are seen as Dave Waldschmidt assists Dean Kollasch with his new drum major uniform, Band, Attention 11 After three weeks of practice, the GHS marching band snapped to attention as Dean Kollasch, drum major, led the band, dressed in his new white uniform, for their first appearance. The band packed up and left for Worthing- tonj Minn., on Saturday, Sept. 16, for the Turkey Day parade. Band officers were also elected recently. They are Margie. Froehlich, president; Barbara Murphy, secretary-treasurer; Sue Elbert, equipment manager; and Sandy Elbert and John Hyink, uniform custodians. beginning to understand how communications are reshaping and uniting the world today. Religion is also offered in Room 17. Although it is somewhat is still communications. This time, however, it is communication of THE WORD. We know that religion is one thing many people have in common and that this, along with the new concepts of Vatican n, is also bringing people closer together through understanding. Lastly, government class convenes each day in Room 17. Through the study of government, and its relationship to other nations, we begin to realize that more than ever before, nation seeks out nation in a search for allies. Also, realizing that some countries are considered enemies, we try to find out why. It can be seen through such a study that we are gradually being bound to the rest of the world, if only for the sake of survival. It may take a while to see the connection but it is there. A hint can be found on the journalism bulletin board which says "Come alive in the global "village." By means of ever- increasing communications - be it in the field of journalism, politics or religion - our once large world is becoming, as Mar.' shall McLuhan states it, "a global village." Garrigan HighSchool Algona,Iowa50511 Tuesday,Sept. 19,1967 LSD: Feel a SouT By Mary Ann Eischen "Haight is love" is the motto of the "turned on" flower children of Haight-Ashbury, San Francisco. These are hippies who take off on trips to embrace a tree and feel its soul, fall into pUes of paisleys, or weave flower chains while^ babbl ng; tttag..Ute "gorgeous red love." They are people who live"high» in,fflto. However, some are not dyed-in-the-long-hair hippies and are just around on weekends to lend atmosphere. They are turned on" by acid (LSD), grass (marijuana), religion and sex; the latter being the most available of psychedelics among hippies. They dwell in voluntary poverty (a hippie in need is indeed a hippie) and live off free stores run by Diggers who scrounge food, clothes, and other give-awayables. There is no time; days blur into each other because hippies don't care, nor are they capable of doing so. Hippies are (they believe) "a threat to the world. But if s God's plan." There are more 25 and under than there are of "Them." "They" are "straight" people rejected by hippies. Straight society is falling apart so hippies work toward a loving, "turned on" world where everybody can "do his thing" but not force it on anyone else. They are straight world drop-outs who are trying to keep man's creativity, in any form, alive. Somehow, they don't seem to realize that the junk they inhale or inject into their bodies often turns people into glassy-eyed vegetables. The world of hippies is a world of feeling where they can live-in, love-in, and turn on with their own communal "family." Are the flower have a message ? people only a bunch of freak-outs, or do they PRIDE Opens 8-Game Slate Garrigan's "pride squad" has seyen returning lettermen to defend its fine 7-1 record of 1966. This list is headed by co-captains John Muller and Dave McCarthy. Other returnees are seniors Jerry Plathe, Kevin O'Brien, and BUI Richter and juniors Tom Black and John Winkel. Non- lettermen prospects are Mike Schiltz, John Mertz, Mike Welp, Luke Kollasch, Dave Zeimet, Steve Youngwirth and Steve Erpelding. The Bears are playing an eight- game slate with five tilts on the local gridiron. Of these eight, two are newcomers, Clay Central of Royal and Mason City Newman, which is engaged in its second grid season. Others are Estherville, Sioux Falls O'Gorman, Fort Dodge St. Edmund, Emmetsburg Catholic, LeMars Gehlan and Carroll Kuemper, spoilers of last year's great season. Tramp 1 Arrives; Leaders Leap "A mini-tramp I" "A what- kind of tramp?' "You heard me, a mini-tramp." This is just a sampling of the questions that buzzed about as the Garrigan cheerleaders introduced the new look to the GHS fans. Included in this look, besides the miniature trampoline, are new uniforms and a whole new set of cheers. The new look really started last spring when Becky Bormann, Jeanne Grotty, Betty McGuire, Darlene Plathe, Barb and Shirley Stoffel and Barb Winkel were picked as the '67 football cheerleaders. The cheer, PRIDE, will be used to set the theme at every pep rally and football game this season. To top it all off, the cheerleaders proudly displayed their new gold pant-dresses, worn with black sweaters. Grcrd Introduces Spain Miss Kristine Plathe,'65, who visited Spain this summer as a student and vacationer, spoke to Garrigan's Spanish students, Sept. 11 arid 12 concerning her trip. : Kristine talked on a variety of Spanish customs. Siesta is not a past custom as some of the students thought; but is still observed as all shops close from one to five in the afternoon* Kristine stressed the bullfights as one of the main attractions in Spain. The beautiful cathedrals are also numerous in Spain. Spanish Recipes Sister James Mary, PBVM, the Spanish teacher, noted "that if Kris would supply us with Spanish recipes the Spanish Club could prepare them as future projects." If you hear "queer" sounds coming from Room 14 during period five, don't get alarmed; Espana highlights the conversation of Sister James Mary, PBVM, and guest speaker Kristine Plathe.

At present, the staff consists With the new school year comes another year's trials and tribulations, yes, even a few joys, to be recorded by the recently formed yearbook staff. Armed to the teeth with enthusiasm the '68 staff planned strategy at a yearbook discussion meeting Sept. 9. From there they advance to Storm Lake, Sept. 27, for a yearbook workshop. Then, home again with new and different ideas, the staff will tackle the many challenges known only to of Rhonda Schuller, editor; Karen Fuchsen, Linda Dogotch and Rhonda Schuller, layout; Eileen Penton, Marge Froehlich, Mary Ann Eischen, Debbie Arndorfer, Pat Besch and Becky Bormann, copy; Steve Reding and Mike Studer, sports; Bill Bray, Steve Ludwig and Dan Kollasch, photography and Jane Kohlhaas and Barb Murphy, typists. if s the beginners in French practicing their vowels. Neither should you think the students a bit "touched" if you see them standing around making faces at themselves in a mirror, for that, too, is part of their assignment. The French I class enjoyed a vacation from French phonetique when Jane Wilson showed her pictures and discussed the experiences she had during her summer in France. Latin League Latin n classes have been divided, for the sake of review, into small groups. Chairmanship revolves every two weeks. From the response, it would seem, that the students are enjoying their review of fundamentals before attempting to read their second-year book. Garrigan has just received its charter for the establishment of its first division of the National Junior Classical League. The members are looking forward to a varied program during their Latin club meetings. Of the 40 sophomores taking Latin n, 28 have joined the J.C.L. club. THE STAR is published twice a month by the students of Garrigan High School, Algona, Iowa, 50511. CO-EDITORS : James Bristow and Tina Obrecht. MAKE-UP EDITOR: Karen Fuchsen.
