Walusz Enjoys Poetry "Being involved" and "trying to close the communication gap" can mean a great deal to a person; one such person is Mr. Bernard P. Walusz. Mr. Walusz is presently teaching sophomore English, is assistant coach in freshman basketball and sophomore football, and heads homeroom 101. "My bag is intellectual baggage because I believe the bits of information our students have is a tremendous share of usable material," Mr. Walusz ex- Freshman Display Creative Talents The KHS freshmen had an opportunity to display, their creative talents Friday, November 20, from 8:00 to 11:00 p.m. at the Freshman Happening. Since projection of freshman talent was the objective of this event, they presented skits, games, acts, and played records for entertainment. The "Happening" is sponsored by the Kuemper Parents Club. plained. Mr. Walusz teaches composition. In doing so, he tries to make the students research their own minds. In October, Mr. Walusz attended Iowa Poetry Day at Cedar Rapids. The purpose of this convention was to encourage tlhe art of poetic composition. Mr. Walusz has composed many poems and has been honored to have some published. One such poem is "AH Men". This poem was written to explain why he went into teaching and also that it was time to be rid of ignorance and passion. "Poetry is a gateway to actual living because it refines the individual's sensibilities — makes him taste deeper — see more — hear more clearly and feel more sharply." Mr. Walusz's poem, "All Men", is as follows: All Men I cannot say I'm freed And let others be slaved in Ignorance, Passion. My country's b i r t h in freedom, Demands a gift — BOB SCHULTE is Kuemper's "Pin —Charger Photo Ball Wizard". Bob Schulte Busy Building Many Electronic Projects "I built my pin-ball machine because I can play it any time I want and it doesn't cost anything." This is the reason why freshman Bob Schulte started making several woodwork and electronic projects. Of these are pin-ball machines, two mini- bikes, a barrell-radio, a tape recorder, a table, a saw, and an aquarium. Bob, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Cyril Schulite of St. Lawrence, was greatly influenced by his father, a mechanic, and his older brother Jim, a 1968 Kuemper graduate who is now studying in the field of electronics. Bob started by coMecting parts of different machines and gradually putting the parts together. He has sold a mini-bike and is presently making another. In all, Bob has spent only $50 on this project, because he had several parts at his home. Bob's 18 x 24 pin-ball machine has a wooden box and is made up of electronic devices, • motor from a record player and a door bell. Bob decided to make his tape recorder as he was leafing through the pages of a magazine. Being led by human instincts, he decided it was cheaper to construct a tape recorder than buy one. Having set out the plans, he obtained an old tape recorder, tore it apart, and constructed a smaller one, 4x2 inches, in a small tin box. It runs by smal batteries and consists of the usual parts such as an off switch, play, record, rewinds, speakers and reels. Bob has received ribbons in science fairs for some of his projects. In sixth grade he was awarded a blue ribbon for an electric motor he made; in seventh grade, he received a red ribbon for a motor made from a generator; and in eighth grade, a blue ribbon for his tape recorder. Bob's future plans include the industrial arts course in Kuemper and later on, advance into woodworking. Bob stated one of his great challenges in life is to make an advanced machine and profit from 'A. Not of words.

Kuemper Band Attends Concert Given by I.S.U. On Wednesday, November 11, Mr. Malett and 65 members of the Kuemper band attended the "All University Band Night" in Ames. The concert, held in the C. Y. Stevens Auditorium, was presented by the Iowa State University Department of Music. The program included performances by the Iowa State University Symphony, Concert, and Marching Bands and the ISU Jazz Ensemble. About 300 ISU students make up the four University bands with a few of them members of more than one of the groups. "A Hymn For Our Times" was the title of the finale number which was performed by combining the separate bands into one. Speaker for Religion Class Mrs. Norbert Greving of Willey talked to Father McGudrkls junior religion classes on Tuesday and Thursday, November 10 and 12. Mrs. Greving worked for one year as a lay extension volunteer in Del Key, California. Before leaving for Del Key, she went to a three-week crash program to learn their way of living and to learn to speak Spanish. Mrs. Greving lived with two other girls in an old church. They felt that they were probably the only people to have the nativity scene in their bathroom which formerly was the sacristy. The confessional served as a clothes closet, while curtains were used as divisions between rooms. While stationed in Del Key, their job was to teach religion and do anything else the pastor wanted. They also tried to organize different social activities. Some were cooking classes which would have helped the women use the welfare packages better and they organized the girls into a form of Girls Club. The main source of income in Del Key was picking grapes. While Mrs. Greving was there, from 1965 to 1966, the grape pickers were paid 7 cents for a try of picked grapes. An experienced grape picker could earn approximately $150 a week which in a family ranging from six to eight people does hot last long. The wages have been changed since she has been there. They now earn approximately two dollars an hour. —Charger Photo WANDA EISCHEID, Sue Kelso, Cathy Cavanaugh, and Molly Burgess, Kuemper's new French Club officers, plan this year's schedule.

Students just can't wait to dig into some hot peas or a stewed tomato. Before lunch many people in the study halls think about what they are going to have for lunch. Some think that they might even be lucky enough to have some raisins or even a peanut butter sandwich. But most of all its the politeness of the students when they enter the cafeteria. There is hardly any pushing to try to get ahead in the line. When they are finished eating they leave nothing on the tables. And after a good hot lunch everybody is happy. bly complete a number of original projects associated with the French language and culture."
