Faez Shabrouk at Lake City— Christmas Will Be New Experience for Iranian By Fanny HoweH (Staff Correspondent) LAKE CITY - Observing the American Christmas holiday celebrations in Lake City will be a new experience for Faez Shabroukh, American Field Service exchange student at Lake City High School. At his home city of Zahedan, Iran, the big holiday celebration is the Norus, or New Year, beginning in March. There are 13 days of holidays, with no school, when people buy and wear new clothes and go visiting friends and relatives in and out of the city. There is feasting and merrymaking, and many special and delicious foods are prepared and eaten — among them chilo- kabob. The chilo is rice prepared in such a way that the water-filled kernels are separate and not gummed together in a lump. The kabob consists of especially ground and cooked mutton, lamb or goat meat. Faez says that in Iran sheep, goafs and cattle furnish the meat. They eat no pork. At the time of Norus, presents are exchanged. Amookluz sometimes brings gifts to small children, corresponding roughly to the American Santa Claus. Faez arrived in Iowa and Lake City just in time to begin the school year. He was one of three in his home city of Zahedan, Iran who qualified to take the necessary examinations that would admit him as an American Field Service student, Faez, alone, "made the grade". Never of Iran, he was filled with eagerness to travel and to see other people, when the head of his school explained the possibilities. He had also made friends with two Peace Corps having been outside workers, workers, Peter Peter and and Barbara Barbara, who urged him to make the decision. He was interested in contacts made en route, in Turkey, Vienna. Munich, and Denmark, and when he reached New York for the two-day orientation period, he was delighted that his Peace Corps friends, Peter and Barbara (now Mr. and Mrs. Peter Deekle) came to visit with him. He travelled by plane from New York to Des Moines where he was met by his host-parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jim Yunek, and their sons, Joel, 16, and Jay, 13, and soon he was in Lake City which was to be his home for the school year. Faez is 17, and hat completed three years of high school in his home city, Zahedan, plus two months in Theran. His father, Attaolla Shabroukh, brought the first printing press to the area about 30 years ago, and now operates a large printing business, printing books, pamphlets, forms, and, occasionally, parts of newspapers. His mother helps in the print shop. He has four brothers.

Farid attends the university in Teheran and studies electricity — with a deep interest in television. In the family of five brothers, Faez is next. Then there is 8-year-old Farzad who attends grade school and is still at home. Faez, whose native tongue is Persian, speaks English very well, but encounters difficulty in reading, in hearing teachers speak, and in taking examinations. He finds it hard to read the printed page. Mathematics is his easiest subject. He has studied English seven years. He finds American schools interesting, but "different", although most of the subjects are the same. In Zahedan, he attended a boys' school where all the teachers were men. Girls attend separate schools and their teachers are both men and women. In Zahedan, students begin school at 8:30 a.m. and continue to 11:30. They go home for lunch and a short rest. The afternoon session is from 2-4 p.m. He finds the American school lunch different, but he school week in likes it. his home The city begins on Saturday and runs six days, ending Friday evening. Friday is a holyday. Faez plays basketball and is fond of tfie various track events, and swimming. The football he knows is soccer. Faez and his family are of the Bahai faith, which was originated in Iran by the prophet Bahaullah, and was promulgated throughout the world, including the United States. He says they honor all prophets including, Moses, Christ, Mohammed. They work and pray for perpetual peace. He hopes, before returning to Iran, to visit the Bahat Temple in Wilmette, Illinois. Since coming to Lake City he has been visiting the different churches. He has a happy home with the Yuneks, and finds nothing to criticise in his new habitat. — — — — —— —- • « -^BJ^ ^^f- ^iaev—i^pj Street Decorations to Be Lighted Thanksgiving The lights on the Christmas decorations in downtown Carroll will be turned on the evening before Thanksgiving, Wednesday, Nov. 25, according to William J. Keenan, chairman of the Carroll Chamber of Commerce Christmas decoration committee. Twenty-four 11-foot gold trees will decorate lamp posts on both sides of the street on Fifth Street between Main and Adams Streets, on Adams Street between Fifth and Sixth Streets, on the west side Post Office is Ready for the Yule Rush The post office in Carroll is ready to handle another large Christmas season's business. "With our new facility located at 614 North Clark Street we now have enough room to handle this volume of mail better than ever before," said Postmaster B. G. Tranter. Besides the large interior space for sorting and dispatching the mail, there is ample area at the rear of the building for all star route trucks to back up and load and unload the mail at any hour of the day. New equipment such as an electric parcel conveyor, and a number of utility carts are labor-savers which the men will appreciate especially when the Christmas mail is moving the heaviest. Larger, four-wheeled trucks enable the mail to be transferred about the office without being handled two or three times. During the 1970 Christmas season the post office will maintain its regular schedule, Mr. Tranter said. Window service is available from 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and from 8:30 a.m. until 12 noon on Saturdays. The lobby is open for lock box patrons and for depositing mail in the slots from 6 a.m. until 8 p.m. weekdays and from 6 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Sundays and holidays. Letters may be deposited at any time in the two drive-in boxes in front of the Post Office as well as those in various parts of the city. The mailboxes have a "new look" this fall — blue with fluorescent decals. "It would be of great help if our customers would separate their mailings as to local, out- of-town and air mail," the Postmaster said, adding that the of Main Street between Fifth and Sixth Streets and on Sixth Street from Carroll to Court Street. The lamp posts supporting the trees will also be decorated with 15-foot lengths of gold and silver roping. Two other 11-foot trees and a 25-foot tree with flashing lights will adorn the canopy on the north side of the court house in downtown Carroll. In addition, nine angels, each nine feet tall, will ring the court house square.

Two "Starburst Skyline" decorations will be hung over Highway 30 at the east and west edges of downtown Carroll to achieve a grand entrance effect. The Retail Bureau of the Chamber will also provide Christmas music that will be played over loudspeakers in the downtown area. Carroll Post Office will be doing their best to move the Christmas mail on time. Mr. Tranter does not anticipate hiring additional help. —Staff Photo FAEZ SHABROKH, Lake City High School's exchange student from Iran, shows a Baluchi costume worn by nomadic people who live part of the year in tents outside his home city. This type costume is worn for both work and dress occasions. Plan Party for Retarded Plans are in progress for the annual Christmas party of the Carroll County Association for Retarded Children. Mrs. Norbert Bruening, chairman, and Mrs, Paul Fasbender, co-chairman, both of Carroll, have announced that the party will be held at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 12, in the Carroll High School gym. Holiday decorations and refreshments will set the mood. Santa Claus will make his annual visit, bringing treats, and a gift will be given to each child from the C.C.A.R.C. Entertainment will be provided by the children of the or- ganization. Each Carroll County special education class will present a skit, song or other type of Christmas entertainment. Highlight of the party will be cartoon movies. CLASSICAL WRAPS Christmas 1970 heralds the return of the romantic tradition in gift wraps. Classic themes dominate. For this season, at least, the psychedelic colors and pop art of recent years have retired in favor of a softer approach. "Trends in Christmas wrap designs are often a reflection of public sentiment," says Mrs. Peggy Gilbert, head of the Norcross design studio. "The new designs may represent a wish for simplicity and a return to basic values." Witt H, *HPPCectKtCiC&>g^4^«lgt^^ SHOP WITT'S TOYLAND (Downstairs) for Famous Brand Co. Toys! Layaway Now!
