THE Vol. 17 Kuemper High School, Carroll, Iowa, Saturday, November 14, 1970 No. 11 Mental Telepathy Presented at KHS "Mental Miracles of the Telepathic Mind" was the name of the program presented to the Kuemper student body by Mr. George Val George on November 6. Mr. Val George initiated the program by presenting an explanation of mystic phenomena and emphasizing the point that a successful show often depends upon the audience. . To test the sensitivity of the audience, Mr. Val George threw a deck of cards to 3 students and asked them to try and relay to him a mental image of their card. He then named 3 cards and asked each student if h i s card was among them. When all 3 gave an affirmative answer, Mr. Val G e o r g e received his first generous round of applause. "I can see five or six students before me who seem to have ESP potential. Will the young lady in the blue stand up, please." And thus Mr. Val George introduced the next feature with Sue Williams successfully choosing from among 3 cards, a duplicate to one which he had previously picked from a deck of similar cards. Other features in the program consisted of guessing the exact amount of change in Bill Schoofs' pocket (42 cents), naming tne person who Dixie Chris- tenson usually calls on the phone (Denise), and proving the existence of mental telepathy by having Mary Fasbender mentally relay to him the spelling of the first word on the page of a book opened at r a n d o m (leather). At the midpoint of the program, Mr. Val George wrote down a prediction which he intended to reveal to the audience later in the show. He then handed this paper to a student for safekeeping. Duane Reiling, who had previously named a car at random (Jack of Diamonds) was told to find this card in a deck presented to him by Mr. Val George. After two unsuccessful attempts by Duane, Mr. Val George admitted that the deck contained only 51 cards. The audience then g a s p e d in wonder as he pulled the Jack of Diamonds out of his pocket and told how he had a premonition at 5:00 that morning and placed this exact card in his pocket at that time. Next on the agenda were predictions, many of them quite controversial, such as: —American boys will be out of Vietnam by 1973. —Nixon and Muskie will be rivals in the 1972 election with Nixon winning. —The United States and the iUlnllniif',*,.... ;;,i i" "i •. —Charger Photo DICK LALLY diligently studied in library, now that report cards are out.

Some of the criteria used in selecting these students were: low effort grade on report card, recommendations of teachers, and disruptive acts of any kind anywhere in school. A mature student coming to school motivated to learn should be free in his unscheduled time to see teachers, go to the library, or to use his time in individual or small group study. Any time it is found that a student is not fully responsible and self-disciplined anywhere in the schools he will be placed in a supervised study. It is the goal of everyone to develop into a responsible self- disciplined student. The supervised study is in no way a punishment, but a help for those students in developing toward this goaJ.

Hawkeye Debate Contest hosted by Heelan and Sioux City East High Schools in Sioux City. Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, and South Dakota were among the four states represented at the contest. Debate is a new and greatly talked about subject that was introduced at Kuemper this year under the g u i d a n c e of Father Higgins. There is a total of fifteen students taking debate, eight of which went to Sioux City. The debate studente have previously represented Kuemper in their first contest an Estherville, which Father Higgins said was quite electrifying. Father plans to attend contests at Cherokee, Cedar Falls, and the CYO Contest in the future. As a subject, debate helps to sharpen the intellect, promote thinking and reasoning on one's feet, and to analyze and synthesize vast quantities of material. Father Higgins feels the purpose of debate is to find the alternate means of achieving a common end. Ever since there were civilized men, rational solutions to problems of solving disputes were by reasoning. Debate is a form of reasoning. Used today, students learn to weed out what is harmful and find the truth of humanity.

USSR will be allies within three years. Mr. Val George then made personal predictions asking only of the subject his date of birth. The predictions ranged from a student's college education to a s t u d e n t's approaching marriage. The finale of the program consisted of 6 students writing down 4 digit numbers. After another student had totaled these numbers and revealed the sum to the audience, Mr. Val George then requested the paper on which he had previously written his prediction and there, to the astonished eyes of the audience, appeared the same sum as the one just revealed. After the show, Mr. Val George was immediately surrounded by a large group of students wishing to know their future. Mr. Val George answered but because of his time Editorial By Mary Gffam EUREKA! We have found it. On Sunday, November 1, St. Lawrence hosted the 1970 CYO Discovery. What did we discover? We discovered a way to praise our Lord that put genuine meaning in the mass. Some have questioned our mass and its intentions, but Oirjst said, "Know i* by its friiRs." Many of the students said they had never felt closer to God in their whole lives. They were so inspired that many were reluctant to leave the church. Can it be bad, when the fruits were so good? From the processional to the recessional there was complete participation by all the congregation. This was our way of participating in the mass and making it more meaningful to us. We shout, we scream, and holler for our football team. Why can't we sing and rejoice for our Lord? The sermon Msgr. Tolan gave emphasized "doing our own thing for Christ!" The handshake of peace at the end surely demonstrated our love for God and his children. Can this be bad? At communion, believe us, we were united with Christ in a most meaningful way. Can this be bad? There are many ways to praise God. This was "our" way! Last but not least the Bible tells us in Psalm 150 to ... Praise Him with harp and lyre Praise Him with timbrel and dance Praise Him with strings and pipe Praise Him with castanet Praise Him with cymbals. schedule, he soon had to be on his way. He did, however, repeat a previous comment, that "Kuemper has one of the most neatly dressed student bodies I've ever performed in front of." As a professional entertainer, Mr. Val George has appeared on the Mike Douglas, Art Linkletter and Johnny Carson shows and last year placed fourth out of 50 preview speakers at the International Platform Association Convention in Washington, D.C. Becoming interested in mysticism at the age of 16, Mr. Val George studied at Duke University and also spent some time in the Orient delving deeper into this subject. Fr. Seifried Visits KHS Father Kenneth Seifried came home from Colorado Springs last weekend for Kuemper's last football game of the season. While here he stayed in Manson, Iowa, with his mother, about 50 miles from Carroll. Father said it felt good to be back at Kuemper and see all his old friends. Also that he was happy, to be a part of Kuemper's festivities again, even for a short while. Father will be in Colorado Springs until January 2, when he will go to New York City for more extensive training. After that he will be stationed in some foreign country. His preferences are: Vietnam, Germany, Japan, or Australia, but he doesn't know where he will be stationed as of yet. Father left to go back to Colorado Springs, Sunday noon. Fulltime Season To the students of Kuemper High, last week's game against the Atlantic Trojans marked the end of a successful football season. But to the 90 members of the Marching Band, it also meant the last half-time show of the 1970-71 school year. For the half-time performance the band marched onto the field playing "Onward Christian Soldiers", after which they performed a drill routine to the sounds of "Do Lord," "Son of a Preacher Man" and "Meetin 1 House Jubilee" as the band formed a stickman and a church. As a finale to the show, a repeat performance of the drill done to the song "Fever" was performed. This year the Marching Band faced a busy schedule with six of the nine football games at home. Now that the football season is over, the band will (focus its attention on preparing for upcoming concerts and music contests. —(^hargur Photo A CHIUING SOSr^NSE story, a shocking murder mystery, or a tale of horror — NO JUST REPORT CARDS!

The first was reported at 11:35 a.m. when a City of Carroll truck driven by Ernest C. Wegman, 41, Carroll was in collision With a car driven by Nadine M. Lengeling, 20, Carroll at the intersection of Court and 7th Streets. A snow plow hitch on the truck and the left rear quarter panel of the Lengeling car were damaged. * Regents (Continued From Page 1) omy throughout the system and the push to attract more students fails to pull the residence halls out of the red, the ultimate elimination of the subsidy will probably mean another rate increase. Only 4,548 of 5,563 beds in the university's residence halls system were occupied Oct. 1, down from 5,121 last flail and representing only 31 per cent of the total undergraduate enrollment as opposed to 35 per cent a year earlier. The major part of the economy drive involves closing the Quadrangle dormitory, a 667- bed facility built near the end of World War 1. The board also authorized itihe university to change its dormitory regulations in attempts to attract more studens, and heard several proposals from repre- senatives of the university's Associated Residence Halls organization. Chief among them were continuing present experimental systems In which one dormitory is co-educational and another is limited to upper classmen and graduate students, as well as considering an "over 21" co-ed dorm with liquor and free visitation permitted. University President Willard Boyd told the regents the new requirement for freshmen actually represents a liberalizing of the university's housing policies. Boyd said the new regulations will be substituted for the existing 'housing code which requires all students under 21 to live in university - approved housing. He. said ithat will remove any restrictions on where upper classmen may live. The Associated Residence Halls representatives argued against the new regulations contending they would reinforce the image of dormitories as being inhabitated by immature underclassmen. Board members expressed some sympathy with the view, but indicated they really had no choice but to approve the regulations if they were to get occupancy rates back up to the breaking points. The University of Northern Iowa now requires freshmen men and freshmen and sophomore women to live in residence halls. Iowa State University has no such requirements — but has had little trouble filling its dormitories. No injuries were reported. A ear driven by Vivian V. Willey, 65, Glidden was attempting to make a right hand turn onto Highway 30 from Main Street at 1 p.m. when it collided with a car driven by Gilbert H. Howard, 59, Carroll. Both cars were southbound on Main Street at the ime of he accident. The right front fender and bumper of the Willey car and the left side of the Howard car were damaged by the impact. No injuries were reported. Two person* were taken to St. Anthony Hospital following a three-car accident at 8:30 p.m. Friday on Highway 30 about 150 ft. east of the intersection of East Street. A car driven by Mary Jo Irlmeier, 17, Carroll had stopped in the left lane of traffic to make a left turn. A second car, driven by Loren J. Zoet, 32, of Sheldon had stopped behind the Irlmeier car when it was struck in the rear by a car driven by Randall Vanderheiden, 17, Carroll. Vanderheiden was taken to St. Anthony Hospital complaining of chest, shoulder and neck injuries while Zoet was taken to the hospital for examination of a neck injury. The right rear fender, taillight and bumper of the Irlmeier car, the front and rear ends of he Zoet car and the front end of the Vanderheiden car were damaged by the impact. Chris Clark of Dos Moines was also taken to St. Anthony Hospital for examination of a bruised left ankle following a one car accident at Third and Whitney Streets at 9:45 p.m. Friday. The car, driven by Larry D. Friedman, 18, Templeton, was westbound on Third Street when it failed to make a slight curve in the roadway and struck a tree on the parking on the west side of the intersection. The entire front end of the car was damaged. The final accident investigated by the police department Friday occurred at 11:50 p.m. A car driven by Mark P. Kennebeck, 17, Dedham, was traveling east on Highway 30 when it struck a parked car while attempting to stop for a traffic signal. The accident happened about 75 feet west of the highway's intersection with Main Street. The right rear fender and bumper of the Kennebeck car and the left door and fender of the parked car, owned by Jack L. Dryden of Carroll, were damaged by the impact.

T!m« Herald, Cawafl, Saturday, Nov. 14, 1970 Health Center Volunteer Service Corps Member Now The Carroll Health Center has been granted membership in the Volunteer Service Corps sponsored by the American Nursing Home Association. The nursing home association, which represents some 7,OOC proprietary and non-proprietary nursing homes with nearly 400,000 beds, said more than 1,200 facilities already have signed up to participate in the new Volunteer Service Corps. The Volunteer Service Corps is part of the Better Life Program of the association. "Nursing homes have learned through experiene that volunteers can do wonders for their patients", said Mrs. Billie Bergquist, activities director of the Carroll Health Center. "One thing we alone cannot do — no matter how much care, no matter how much we try — is prove to the individual patient that the community still cares and that he has not been forgotten. The volunteer, who gives of his or her time freely, in effect confirms to the patient that 'yes, we do care' ", Mrs. Bergquist continued. The volunteer program is divided into the Volunteer Service Corps for adults and the Teen Volunteer Service Corps for teenagers. Special training and orientation programs are provided for all volunteers before they actually begin working directly with patients. For information on how to volunteer for service at Carroll Health Center, interested persons may write or call Mrs. Bergquist. Retarded (Continued From Page 1) been here. Dale Leste, who teaches junior high special education at Carroll Central, feels the program is most successful. He says, "Mosit of these children will not be considered retarded or special when they leave school." It is his belief that if these children are equipped to work within the society, ifhey will, hopefully, make a contribution to it. Miss N e 1 s o n's experience backs up his beliefs. "Many of the special education students I taught are now working full or parttime," she said. "Without the cooperation of the business people and the schools of Carroll County, this would not be possible." The days of the "Jersy Loop- ers," when children sat and made potholders all day, are gone. Mrs. Peterson explains their special teaching plan. 'The children's work is programmed for success. We don't wait until tomorrowto find whether 'the answers are correct. We check, correct and recheck immediately. This makes for very individualized instruction." The special education classes are helped with contributions from the Carroll County Association for Retarded Children. The Association provides special handicraft and classroom gup- plies, additional milk, scholarships for special education teachers, along with other special services for the children. Their annual fund drive is running through November. Contributions may be mailed to the Carroll County Association for Retarded Children, 621 East llth St.; Carroll, Itowa 51401.
