Seniors Reign Af Marc// Gras Janice Thul Photo by Bill Bray Kevin O'Brien Beware of Feet! The halls are .still and quiet.

The faster you go, the sooner you get there; unless, of course, you happen to be an upperclassman. Seems funny that you can get run over even if you are older. But if you run, you can get ahead in the lunch line and naturally the food will run Clubs Share Council Treasury Garrigan's Student Council adopted a treasury department recently. It was designed in such a way that each school club could share in it. Each club deposits its treasury into one joint deposit. Since each club has its own personalized checks, they can easily keep a record of how much they put in and withdraw. The checks are signed by Margie Froehlich, treasurer, and Sister Imelda, PBVM, Student Council moderator. In previous years such a system has been proposed, but nothing became of the issue. It appears to be a very promising de> partment for the future. out if you're one minute later. Annoyingly enough, not just running but laughing and talking are also carried on. Well, if s between classes, and it's all right to talk even if it does distract those unlucky ones in class. Besides who cares if it is hindering someone else's precious time. That's their tough luck. It's your right to laugh and talk and run. Or is it? THE STAR is published twice a month by the students of Garrigan High School, Algona, Iowa, 50511.

Much time and an abundance of spirit enabled the seniors to reach 208% of their quota, followed by the juniors with 152%, the sophomores 105% and the freshmen with 97% of their quota. Winners The winning seniors will receive their award of a free day. Their king and queen candidates, Kevin O'Brien and Janice Thul, will also reign over the Mardi Gras dance, Feb. 24. The highlight of the evening came when the drawing was held for the prizes raffled off by the classes. The stereo tape for an automobile was won by RayUthof of Fenton; Mick Elbert of Whlt- temore received the quarter of beef; the AM-FM transistor radio was won by Eugene Muller of Algona; the name of M.

For money projects for the Styles Impress Home EC. Girls Taking to traveling again, the homemaking class ventured to Foster's Furniture on Feb. 7-8. During the visit, the girls became aware that furniture styles change but are very important. The purpose of the trip was to learn the construction of furniture and the popular style. "The girls especially liked the Early American style," said Sister Lawrence Marie, PBVM. In regard to furniture construction the girls were shown the different types of wood and upholstery, the construction'frame of chairs, drawers, bed springs and mattresses. night, classes set up booths. Some were, "honest John," personal slave, the candy store, the fortune teller, bingo, dunker, the country store, cake walk and photograph booths.

Taxes Explored By Bookkeepers Preparing income tax forms is a new aspect that bookkeepers are exploring with the help of Sister Mary Lucile, PBVM. The forms and booklets describing the proper methods are provided by the Internal Revenue Service. Included in the booklet is a brief history of taxes and the destination of the collected money. A movie will also be provided. Cabinets Provide Work Space Garrigan High School, Algona, Iowa, 50511 February 28, 1968 New System Suggests Team Teaching, Mods "It's no place for lazy teachers or students," said Sister Mary Maun, OSF, when asked about modular and flexible scheduling. In modular scheduling the time periods are broken down into units, from 15 to 30 minutes, called mods. These mods can be combined or separated, thus giving classes varied time lengths. Flexible Scheduling The flexible schedule is similar to the modular schedule but as Father C. H. Friedmann says, it can be more controlled. Faculty members may Join together in team teaching. In this system, two to six teachers can teach different parts of the same subject. These ideas were prompted by a meeting In Sioux City Feb. 13* at which Father Friedmann, Father Smith, Sister Mary Jane, OSF, Sister Mary Karol, OSF, Sister Mary Lucile, PBVM, and Sister Mary Maun, OSF, attended. Gerbil Visits Biology Class What animal resembles a furry mouse and is more fun than a monkey? Anyone who has visited Garrigan's biology room lately can give you the answer. This blackish-grey specimen, called a gerbil, is classified as a rodent. Our curious little fellow was given to Barb Haverly, who is sharing his antics with her sophomore biology classmates. Garrigan's gerbil is somewhat unique in that it only has two front legs. The hind feet met with a sad fate, or'should one say, a "hungry mother." The pet's mother was skipped at feeding time for several days and she finally satisfied her hunger pains with a pair of her baby's hind legs. A normal gerbil has four legs with the back ones being used for jumping, similar to a kangaroo. Necessity has forced this one into a waddling motion much like a duck's. Gerbils make excellent house pets. They can live on a diet of bird seed with a minimum amount of water since they originate in China, on the edge of the Gobi Desert. However, it seems they can be provoked to cannibalism on occasion! Been in Room 17 lately? Well if you haven't there is a new sight there. The Star assistant editors, Pat Dalhauser and Pat Besch are shown here working on the new cupboards. Advantages Modular and flexible scheduling and team teaching have advantages, which eventually may be Incorporated Into Garrigan. The main advantages of these methods would be the variation In arrangement of classes with longer periods, when needed for subjects such as lab sciences, activities and lectures. With team teaching the students would get a variety of teachers and the best from these teachers. But there are, also disadvantages. There might be difficulty for students to adjust to the systems and confusion with the rearrangement of classes. Also more would be demanded of teachers. Father Friedmann has seriously 'considered experimenting with team teaching and a flexible schedule in the near future. Matt Dillon Spurs Interest In Study Of Shakespeare During the rush of the carnival drive, Sister Karol, OSF, Sister Mary Lou, CHM, and Mr. Richard Balcik, kept Interested English students busy. Freshmen, with the help of Sister Mary Lou, are discovering the beginnings of Western literature. The boys have been busy looking up principal Greekngods and their influence on ancient literature as well as modern literature. From the looks of Room 12, many projects showing the travels of Ulysses, geneology of the House of Agememnon, and House of Troy, and other maps of pertinent Greek literature shows the interest is the re. Freshmengirls of the fifth period made up gods for the modern world (Scopus — "great green god of Scope"). Second period girls prepared and edited a reading of "The Trojan Women" by Eurlpedes. Back in Room 16 Mr. Balcik teaches Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar" adapting the setting for Gunsmoke. Sophomores are acting such parts as Julius Caesar - Matt Dillon, Brutus - Festus, Calpurnia - Kitty, Antony Doc. All this work adds to the education in World Literature. "The play is the thing to catch the interest" of junior English students according to Sister Karol. She is making the study of drama enjoyable as well as educational. So far the class has studied the backgrounds of the .American theater including "Our Town" by Thornton Wilder. Different groups composed original plays based on this classical play. Projects illustrating different phases in American literature also can be seen in room 38. 6-Algona (la.)
