Carroll Hi-Recorder Published by the Students of Carroll High School Vol. 32 Saturday, November 4, 1967 No. 10 Open House for Education Week Making the School Scene By Barb Peters (Exchange Editor) Just what is the. scene? It's what's happening in the crazy world of teens. On October 18, the scene at Audubon High was "The Web of Murder." This modern-day mystery, set in a Victorian background, was chosen for the fall drama presentation. The grapevine has it that Dave Christiansen turned into a muscle-man for the play, because he had the privilege of carrying Kalhy Smith and Michaela Dulin off the stage. The Coon Rapids school newspaper is making the scene by having a "Question of the Week." In reply to the question, "If you could be a child of about five, what toy would you want most of all?" Some of the answers were: "Two-inch tall golf clubs (Could there be another Jay C o r b e 11 in the world?), a hula hoop with a motor, a sewer survival kit, and psychedelic squirt gun. Another question read, "What was the last movie you went to?" The answers included "Mickey Mouse and the Chicago Kid," "Flatfoot in Bare Park," "Georgie Girl and the Seekers," "Donald Duck Rides Again," "Whatever Happened to Harry," "Little Miss Muffit at the Des Moines Drags," "Alfie in Wonderland," and "I Was a Teen-Age Wolf." The t h i r d and final question I have for you today is "What is a trops repus'?" The answer —" 'Super Sport' spelled backwards." The scene at Creston High Is play practice for the fall play, "The Red House Mystery," to be presented November 9. There are two scenes at Denison High: rehearsals for •the play, "The Cradle Song," and debate practice in which the teams are working on cross-examination. This involves questioning the opponent about his speech. Watch out, C.H.S. debaters. Student snatches, such as this, contribute to the scene at Glidden-Ralston: "Boredom is ... the week after homecoming ... having to re-do assignments . . . staying at home nights." Also, my felicitations to Glidden's song dedications: "Words" — speech class; "Silence is Golden" — library (?); "Light My Fire" — chemistry lab; "Windows of the World" —study hall; "Apples, Peaches, and Pumpkin Pie" — lunch room; "Sock It to Me" — soccer in gym class; "Run, Run, Run" — football boys. The scene at Harlan High took place in the fourth period study hall when a garter snake and kitten wandered in to become educated, but they were both expelled for having their shirt tails out and for not wearing belts or socks. Potpourri Welcome to the county band members who are attending the County Band Festival today and performing in the concert tonight. Congratulations to Barb Peterson, Joe White. Steve Moore, and Andrew Peterson for being accepted into All-State Chorus. We are also very proud of Jay Krogh who has been selected to represent Carroll County in the Senate Youth Program. If Jay should win as a competitor on the state level. he will receive a two-weeks' stay in Washington, D. C. Good news, Mr. Knott! The juniors are using more gestures now so that they can show off their new class rings. Barbs Get up with a song on your iips, and everyone else in the bouse will snarl at you. Thought-provoking idea suggested by our favorite minister: p*ay now, go later. It's silly to fret over what people will think of you. Odds are 10 to 1 they'll think of themselves. If you want to borrow trouble, you'll find your credit is good. I-Kt.'rnnlor 1'hiilo Carroll Casualties . . . Carroll High's "step-and hop cast" set is no longer an exclusive male organization. This week Linda Reiman joined their ranks with a broken finger acquired in "Touch??" football. Others on the temporarily incapacitated list are from left to right: front row — Jay Corbclt, Rog Fuller, and Jeff Bencke; back row —• Linda Reiman and Jeff Minnich. The only non-football injury in the group belongs to Jeff Beneke who thought he would be different by getting his on the basketball court. —I It-Recorder Photo Student Directors . . . Jeff Beneke and Joyce Henning, student directors of the all-school play, Thornton Wilder's "Skin of Our Teeth," discuss suggestions for the costume committee. Tiger Talk By JAY CORBETT The Tiger ranks have depleted once again with the knee injury to Tiger fullback Roger Fuller. With water-on-the-knee, Rog will be out for the remainder of the season. Last weekend while the gang was up at Farner's, Tom asked Rog what was I he matter with him. Rog replied that he had water- on-the-knee. Well, we all know that Dr. Farner is well acquainted with an injury such as this — he suggested that Rog take a towel and wipe it off. THE "ATHLETE OF THE WEEK" IS JAY KROGH. When the backfiold is getting all the attention, the line is at its un- glorit'ying work of making the ballcarriers look good. If it wasn't for the work of linemen like Jay Krogh, a ballcarrier !i* would look '•: mighty poor. When a play is run right up the ..* middle and goes Jay Krogh for a good distance, the credit really should go to the line. The linemen are tho onos who made that gain possiblo — so 1 would like to dedicate this week's column to Jay Krogh — an outstanding lineman. 1 am sure that any one of the footballers in the backfield uf we have any left by now) can tell you the value o'f Staff Editor-in-Chief — Becky Blake Assistant Editor — Jo Ellen Severin Sports Editor — Jay Corbett Cartoonist — Kathy Johnson Photographers — Marvin Brandl and Frank Knutzen Feature Editors — Joyce Henning and Sherry Denney Reporters — Donna Anderson, Paula Baker, Nancy Benson, Rick P r e n g e r, Linda Jensen Columnist — Bill Maher Exchange Editor — Barb Peters Faculty Adviser — Mrs. Edna Fitzpatrick the lineman ability in Jay Krogh. Congratulations to a boy with one of the best names that 1 have ever heard — we'll be looking forward to a good basketball season from Jay and I hope that he produces the one 1 know he can! Although this has been a disheartening season, I feel that it has contributed to the team of next year. The experience gained by the boys who will be playing next year is invaluable —it has provided the needed sureness which is very necessary for the better than average season. Looking upon next year as an optimist, count on a winner!!

Hollywood is Building N.Y. of 1890 By GENE HANDSAKER (Associated Press Writer) HOLLYWOOD (AP) - In 'ilms, locales are seldom what ,hey seem. In television's "Peyton Place" series, the town square is actually an open area between 20th Century-Fox studio's cafe, two sound stages, a fire house and a building of dressing rooms. But now the studio is outdoing itself. Jackhammers clatter and carpenters' saws whine as 20th announces it is constructing the largest ever built." It will cost more than $2 million and stretch across the lot nearly half a mile between two Los Angeles thoroughfares—Pico and Olympic Doulevards. The set, representing New York City of 1890, is for "Hello, Dolly!" which will star Barbara Streisand and Walter Matthau. And, says John De Cuir, it also represents "nothing but problems." "By ordinance you can't hang anything from existing buildings," said De Cuir, pronounced De Cure, a veteran production designer who's in charge of the project. "That means we have to install 110-foot poles, which have to go 15 feet into the ground, where we run into conduits and water pipes." De Cuir, an Oscar winner for his "Cleopatra" sets in Rome, where he also reproduced the Sistine Chapel for "The Agony and the Ecstasy," pointed to a wailful of his sketches: "Next to the studio property building will be Fifth Avenue and the Hoffman House, a hotel-restaurant, which had the longest bar in the world and was where Boss Tweed hung out. "Stage 14 will become the ex terior of a tenement, and next to the administration building we'll build a clubhouse of steel glass and Victorian flavor." Other features of the set will include Barnum's Museum, Central Park, Madison Square Park, Herald Square, the Battery, Broadway, Grand Central Station and a quarter-mile of elevated railway. Social Security Social Security Payments Can Be Made in Any Month By Charles Crawford (The Dally Times Herald has made arrangements with tho Den Moines office nf the Social Security Administration to answer questions fur our readers about social security and medi- care. Send your questions to Charles G. Crawford, Field Representative, Room 293, Federal Building, 210 Walnut Street, Des Koines, Iowa 50308.) 8 QUESTION: I have a friend who is a teacher and she recently told me she draws social security checks in the summer months. Is this possible? ANSWER: Yes. If your friend is eligible for social security payments, she may receive them for any month that she does not earn over $125.00 a month in wages, or renders substantial services in self-employment. The retirement rules for teachers are the same as for anyone else. If you would like more information in this area write for pamphlet OASI- 23, "If You Work While You Get Social Security Payments." QUESTION: I will be 67 years old April 9, 1968. When can I file for Medicare? I read your pamphlets and they all talk about a 7-month period in which I can enroll and I also recall hearing something about filing in the 3 months before your birthday. Which is correct? ANSWER: Both statements are correct. You can enroll in the supplementary part of Medicare in the 3 months before your 65th birthday, the month of your 65th birthday and in the 3 months after your 65th birthday. If you don't sign up in the 3 months before your birthday, you will lose from 1 to 5 months of your medicare protection. This is why we encourage everyone to file early, preferably during the three months before their 65th birthday. QUESTION: When 1 filed for my social security back in January, I estimated I would earn $2,000 this year. You held back some of my checks because I thought I would go over $1500. I was hurt in a fall in October and haven't gone back to work yet. Now, it doesn't look like I will go over $1500 this year. Is there any way I can go back Manning School News Published by the Students of the Manning Community High School Vol. 9 One announcement Friday morning especially interested me: Declam meeting during homeroom in the assembly. So 1 found myself in the assembly at 12:37 with forty-nine other prospective orators listening to Mrs. Dammann explain the different areas of declam and tell about speech contest. I was glad to learn that there is a wide choice of areas of speech. Each school may enter three contestants in: 1) Oratorical Declam, 2) Dramatic Declam, 3) Humorous Declamation, 4) Interpretive Reading —Poetry, 5) Interpretive Reading — Prose, 6) Original Oratory, 7) Extemporaneous Speaking, 8) Radio Speaking, 9) Expository Address, 10) Storytelling, 11) Book Reviewing, and 12) After Dinner Speaking. In addition, we may take Play Reading and a One- Act Play. Mrs. Dammann also told us that district contest is March 2 and state speech contest (for those who receive a I rating at district level) is March 23. When I talked to Mrs. Dammann about the area of declam that I want to enter, she told me she was very pleased with this year's participation, especially among the freshmen, who are very enthusiastic. With this response to declam, we can look forward to a very successful year. On Oct. 25, Bronwen Morris, our foreign exchange student presented a book entitled, Portrait of New Zealand, to the student body and faculty. Dave Kuhn, Student Council President, accepted the book on behalf of the student body and cilty of M.H.S. The book gives an overall picture of New Zealand. It shows the cities, the people, the countryside, and a little history of each to go with it. It also contains photographs of each of the above. The book will be put in the school library for everyone of our school system to enjoy. Bronwen also made a special point of saying this is not just from her but from all the people of New Zealand. Everyone in M.H.S. sincerely No. 12 thanks you for this wonderful gift. The Manning Bulldogs pre served their second place standing in the conference Oct. 20, with a 13-0 victory over Bayard. Victory number four was the second straight shutout for the Bulldogs who the week before beat Scranton 6-0. The Reds from Bayard played a hard game but long passes helped the Bulldogs score. Gary Kuhl received a 45 yard pass to set up a touchdown run of 3 yards by Dale Moeller in the 1st quarter. In the 4th quarter David Schroeder received a 22 yard TD pass for the other score. This week the Guthrie Center Tigers come to Manning for a game on Friday, which is parent's night. At the beginning oi the season Guthrie was picked as a conference power but so far the Tigers have sufferec two setbacks to Manilla and Exira. However, Guthrie Cen ter isn't a team to be passed over lightly. The Tiger Team i loaded with experienced seniors, a very speedy backfield which include a tough junior fullback in Melvin Krakaw. A victory this week is essential to the Bulldog's clamp on seconc place so this will be a crucia game between two good teams The junior varsity wrappec up another successful season with an 18-14 win over Coon Rapids reserves Monday, Oct 23. A record of four wins anc two losses was compiled in vie tories over Irwin, Manilla Glidden, and Coon Rapids Losses were suffered to Exira 14-12 and to Carroll 9-0. The main stays of the defense were Doug Musfeldt and Ron Hill. With two conference games left Exira is in sole possession of first place with a 5-0 record. Owner of the second place is Manning with a 4-1 record. Next is Guthrie Center with 3-2 record. Knotted in fourth place are four teams with 2-; records: Manilla, Glidden, Bay ard, and Scranton. This will be thinned out come Friday. Occupying the bottom rung is winless Coon Rapids with a 0-5 record. Times Herald, Carroll, la. Saturday, Nov. 4, 1967 and pick up the c h e c k s I missed earlier this year? ANSWER: Yes. You should complete form SSA-1425, Claimant's Report About Work, and review your estimate. If you want assistance with this I will be happy to help you. Since you won't earn over $1500 this year you are eligible for all your social security checks. I would like to again remind our readers to be sure and give your full name and address when writing to your social security office. You will receive a personal answer to your question. We are able to publish only a few of your questions in the paper. QUESTION: Is it true that you have to have worked under social security to qualify for Medicare? Some people say you do and others say you do not. ANSWER: Medicare has two parts; one mainly hospital bill insurance and one mainly doctor bill insurance. You can have the doctor bill insurance without having worked under social security. The requirements for hospital bill insurance depends on your date of birth. If you are already 65 or reach 65 before the end of 1967, you need not have worked under social security to qualify for hospital insurance. If you reach that age after this year, you will need to have worked under social security a certain length of time or you must be the wife or widow of someone who has worked in employment covered by social security.
