Lakotan Will Teach Several Weeks, Mexico A Lakota college student is leaving today for Monterrey, Mexico, where he will do his student teaching. He is Paul Geilenfeldt, son of Dr. and Mrs. Paul C. Geilenfeldt, and is one of six students from Mankato State College selected for teaching assignments at the American School at Monterrey. College officials say this is the first time any Minnesota undergraduate students teachers have been assigned to a school outside the country. The group will teach for eight weeks at Monterrey, which is in north-central Mexico, about 145 miles south of Laredo, Texas. Geilenfeldt, who has been student teaching with a 6th grade class at Fairmont, has worked out a plan to send information back to the class, which will be working on a study unit about Mexico. He also plans to start a pen- pal club by having his Monterrey 6th grade students write to Fairmont students. Geilenfeldt was one of six selected from 30 volunteers out of 185 student teachers. The six had less than two weeks to prepare to go, including having inoculations, obtaining birth certificates and preparing warm weather clothing. The students will return to the Mankato campus Dec. 8. Time To Apply, A-F Academy Appointments High school seniors who are interested in entering the Air Force Academy after graduation should take steps immediately to apply for a nomination. Lt, Col. Donald T. Hemmingsen, Academy liaison officer in the north central Iowa area, advises seniors to contact him for information at 207 North Moore St. in Algona. His Air Force Reserve assignment is to counsel young men concerning the Academy admission requirements and entrance examinations. Members of Congress, who nominate a majority of the applicants for each Academy class, have already begun to screen and select their nominees for the class entering in June, 1968. Senators and Representatives are interested in nominating successful high school students to be considered for Academy appointments, A good scholastic standing, a record of participation in extra-curricular activities and physical fitness are the most important factors. MEMOS FROM MARGARET MARGARET PRATT, Extension Home Economist More about the Kossuth County Laundry Clinic on Monday, October 23. This is to introduce Wanda Triplett, staff Home Economist from the Maytag Company who will be the Master of Ceremonies for the Style Show at the clinic. Her presentation of "Launder- able Clothes" will bring you up to date on laundry methods. Speaking of laundry, now is the time to lay the summer clothes "by" with an eye to extending their wear life for spring and summer 1968. This takes more than the usual weekly washing and drying. It means treatment of oily soil lines along the edges of hems, cuffs, collars and pockets. Some garments may have a carry over of starch which should all be washed out because it attracts silver fish. Come and find out more about laundry methods at the Kossuth County Laundry Clinic on October 23. Tuesday, Oct. 17, 1967 Algona (la.)
