Lou Galetich Runs for Congress Tf we fall to dare, if we do not try, the next generation will harvest the fruit of our indifference; a world we did not want — a world we did not choose — but a world we could have made better, by caring more for the results of our labors ... This passage from T. S. Elliot expressed the feelings of Mr. Lou Galetich, candidate for the congress of the United States as House of Representatives for the 7th District of Iowa. Upon being asked why he has chosen to run for such a position, Mr. Galetich stated, "I feel that the present congressman does not represent the interests of the people of his district. He has displayed a negative attitude toward legisfaion which affects all of us, specifically in areas of education, reform of our archaic welfare programs, and environment, to name a few. This is basically a rural district, one of 31 in the United States, and my opponent does not speak for the farmer. I feel that I can do a much better job than he is presently doing." During his campaign, Mr. Galetich has visited all of the nineteen counties in the district. He has attended all of the 'Meet Your Candidate" sessions held ki the district, whereas his opponent has not attended one. "I hoped that we could have a face-to-face confrontation but he refused, including one on KETV in Omaha. 1 have tried to point Mr. Galetich stated that leav- out my opponent's negative record in congress and tell what I considered to be the priorities for the 1970s. But it was very difficult to find out what my opponent stood for as he wouldn't appear at the meetings. I had visited all of the nineteen counties in the district by September first, appearing at county fairs and centennial celebrations as well as the campaign dinners. Many high school and college students aided me in my campaign. It was gratifying to me how so many young people, especially in the southern part of the district, were concerned about the conditions in the country. My wife and daughter also spent a great part of the summer traveling with me and partici pating in the parade. It had to be a family affair as we are op- eratkyj a low budget campaign," exclaimed Mr. Galetich. When asked what his responsibilities would be while in office, he responded, "If elected, I would like to serve on the House Education and Labor Committee and also on the Agriculture Committee. The process of lawmaking is what congress is all about. As a congressman from this district, you would have to establish a line of communication with your people so that you know what the needs are ki a rural district. This would include an understanding of the problems of education, youth, crime and drugs and what can be done to improve these problems." ing Kuemper would be one of the most difficult decisions. Being a part of Kuemper High School for fourteen years has been most rewarding for him. He continued to say that the administration and faculty have been most generous to him over the years, especially when he bad to be away from classes for political reasons. He is thankful to all those students who realized that the role he had to fill as dean of boys and then director of student affairs was one which certainly dad not endear him to all the students. In conclusion, he added, "I care about people and their problems. I know I can represent them better than they are being represented at the present time." Junior Enjoys Hobbies —Charger Photo SISTER ADJUTA CHECKS absentee slips as part of her job as Kuemper's dean of girls. Sister Adjuta Busy With School and Legion Work K is often said that (he best things come in anal packages. At Kuemper this may be true of people, too. Besides being the shortest and tiniest faculty member, Sister Adjuta is one of the most cheerful people you could ever hope to meet. With a smile on her face, and a sparkle in her eye, she is always ready to lend a helping hand. Besides being the Dean of Girls and teaching three geometry classes, Sister Adjuta has many other activities which keep her very busy. She has to make certain each student's merit rating record and absentee and tardy records are totaled each quarter. That alone is a pretty big job when you consider the number of pupils this includes! Sister Adjuta finds people enjoyable and likes to be with them. Throughout the year, she makes a point of talking to all the girls of each class as a group, and urges each individual girl to come and talk with her if she has any special problem, feels unhappy or just wants someone to talk with. The colorful, cheerful posters in the halls of Kuemper are also the doing of Sister Adjuta. Most of itihe ideas for her posters come from pictures in magazines or advertisements. Sister mounts the picture on an opaque object which enlarges it and throws the image on poster paper. She then traces over it, adds some color or a saying to it and puts it on a bulletin board in one of the haHs. How many of you Kuemperites have noticed these posters? It just happens there are different ones up every single week. Outside of school activities, Sister Adjuta also keeps busy. She is the Spiritual Director of the Legion of Mary, visits the rest homes of Carroll, and collects clothingfor large and needy families. With all of these things to do, however, Sister Adjuta manages to stay sweet and keep a smile for everyone. Just one thing ... if you're ever walking down the halls chewing gum, you better watch out for Sister Adjuta! She can spot gum a mile off as many "one dollar poorer" people can tell you. What do YOU do with spare time? Idle away each extra minute? For those who are too energetic and don't believe in wasting time, but haven't come up with any interesting hobbies — maybe this will help YOU! Molly Burgess has many extracurricular activities, yet she still has time to devote to special hobbies. Molly has found collecting bookmarks an interesting pastime. She began in fifth grade when she started making frequent trips to the public library. Noticingthe bookmarks they would set out, she would take two — one to use, one to keep. "I Ike to read and I just picked 'em up when I started to read. From then on I collected them." Asking her what she liked best about it, she replied, "I like collecting bookmarks 'cause it's easy, inexpensive and doesn't take much time." Molly has bookmarks from libraries all over — San Francisco, the Joslyn Art Museum, Brandeis, and personalized ones that were gifts. Molly couldn't stop with bookmarks. No, not Molly! She couldn't let a minute rest. Collecting foreign dolls became another amusing hobby. It all Roundtable Reflections This week's award for clumsiness goes to Becky Vkarius for her brilliant exhibition in Sister Jean's science class. Becky set a new record for messing up the same experiment three times. Only three times, that's all. Between spilling water on desk, dropping beads on the floor, and emptying needed solutions into the sink, she is not far from being the class menace. Sophomore boys have invented a new kind of carpentry — taking desks apart. MOLLY BURGESS ROUNDTABLE REFLECTIONS Last week Kuemper's football team became flhe sixth winning team in the 16 years of the school's history. Their record stands at 5-2 and hopefully 7-2 by the end of the year. Go Knights — Beat Central! started when her uncle sent a doll from Germany (Black Forest). Then her aunt gave her one from Switzerland and she received one from Mexico and another from Japan. Thus was bom another one of Moly's hobbies. You wouldn't believe it if I told you that Molly stopped here — so I won't. Drawing is her favorite pastime and she loves doing the cartooning for the paper. She was the only sophomore on the Charger staff, and was asked to be on it by one of the other members who had learned of her talent "I like cartooning. As I go on I see myself improving in my techniques and this is good 'cause I didn't get a chance to take art this year." (Molly, you just can't do everything — although you certainly have the ambition to try!) We can't forget her musk ability. "Music is so much a part ,oi me. I'd hate to spend one day without it." Molly has played the flute since fifth grade and also plays guitar. She spends her pensive moments listening to mood music. Her favorite albums are "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" and "Goodby Columbus." Also, she's written a few songs. The other day she came up with a new idea — noting verbal mistakes mat her friends say. She thinks they're too funny to forget. Here are some examples: One girl, when asked to lend money, replied, "Wil you guys quk arooomin' off me!" As Molly was coming out of the library she bumped into one of her Mends who groaned, "I just suffered a mortal industry!'* That same girl after a disagreement, arose, pronounced, "I think we ought to exterminate this argument." If YOU'D like to start a nobby maybe Molly has some more ideas she could share with you! Mrs. Fred Dolezal is New Assistant Librarian "Read, and watch your world glow," is a little philosophy expressed by Mrs. Fred Dolezal, new assistant librarian. Previously, Mrs. Dolezal taught history at Kuemper for three years. Now, helping in the library, she finds it very different from teaching, with never a dull moment. She feels the library is one of the most excit ing rooms in school, because of its wide variety of information held. Mrs. Dolezal obtained her experience as a librarian by working in a paperback store. Coming from Houston, Texas, Mrs. Dolezal received her education at Clarke Collgee, Dubuque, where she majored in history, and minored in German. Antiquing, reading, golfing, knitting, playing bridge, and watching football are some of her many active hobbies. Concluding, Mrs. Dolezal started, "Kuemper is great, very enjoyable, and has the friendliest people." MRS. FRED DOLEZAL, new library assistant, checks over the files.
