(AP) — Brown University student 'broke the bank" academically, so to speak, by compiling a our-year average higher than he 4.0 usually considered per- 'ect. Donald E. Krecker, 21, Norristown, Pa., achieved the feat via a record of one A-minus, eight A's and 23 A-pluses for his 32 courses. According to the formula used by Brown and most colleges, this gave him a 4.156 average. He was graduated Monday, eceiving a bachelor of science degree, summa cum laude. He majored in applied mathematics, and will continue his studies at graduate school at Stanford University in the fall. Brown University believes the average may be the highest compiled in modern times. Krecker accomplished his feat while holding a part-time job during most of his school years, working in Brown's computer laboratory, and playing trumpet in the Brown marching and pep bands. By ALAN McWHORTER School teachers are always curious about what their students have learned in their classes. At the end of the school year Mrs. Delphine Re«d, a Spanish teacher at San Jacinto Elementary asked her Spanish students to write a paper telling her excatly what they had learned in her class. The answers came from' students who lived in Spanish speaking homes and from students who had never heard Spanish before the classroom Elementary Kids Like Spanish, activities. One of the boys from a Spanish speaking home wrote about why 'Spanish had helped him and how he felt about the class. "Everybody likes Spanish- because it is fun to learn to speak In Spanish. We've learned how to say the Spanish words the right way. Also we know how to play Spanish games and can read in Spanish," wrote fourth grader David Aguiiar. One of the fourth graders who had never been exposed to Spanish before his Spanish class wrote that some of the words and thoughts were difficult, but that Spanish was still fun. "Some of the words are hard, but I always find a way to pronounce them. In Spanish I learned learned to count to 69, and a lot of words," wrote Keith Smith. Joe Vasquez explained that his teacher had taught the class to sing in Spanish, "and it is hard for young people to learn to sing." A fifth grader agreed with Joe by writing that he had learned a lot of things. "I have learned how to tell time in Spanish, t can count and tell ages, and I know diseases. We would not have learned all of this i/ Mrs. Reed did not teach us. She is a good teacher who gets Spanish through our thick skulls," wrote Cyntliia Flores. Another fifth grader commented that Mrs. Reed was not responsible for teaching the students Spanish. Lisa Jean Santana wrote, "Although this book, 'Primer Curso,' taught me Spanish, Mrs. Reed is still a good teacher." Roll Coy, a fourth grader, explained why he enjoyed Spanish and why he was interested in it. "I love Spanish because it is my language and I can talk to my brothers and sisters, and parents at home in Spanish." Lou Ann Sutphin, a fifth grader wrote, "I have learned just zillions of things and millions of words, and I have learned that Mrs. Reed is the nicest teacher in the world and that she is fun." Sharon Macon explained that at the end of the year she had learned quite a lot. "When I started the fourth grade in the fall J didn't know anything about Spanish, but now I have learned almost everything," she wrote. "I don't believe that one of us hated Spanish. We learned games and songs," commented Cynthia Roberts. A fifth grader, Michael Weatherspoon, wrote that ht thought it was a nice way to finish elementary school. "We have had much fun our last days of going to San Jacinto Elementary before going to Baytown Junior School." Some of the students commented that they would like to continue taking Spanish in junior school. A fifth grader, Pam Thomas, who will be entering junior school in the fall wrote, "1 have enjoyed Spanish very much this year. I hope maybe that I will remember how wonderful Spanish is and will take it in junior school." Henkes 900 W.
