Carroll Hi-Recorder Vol. 21 Published by the Students of Carroll High School Carroll. Iowa, Daily Times Herald, Saturday, May 11, 1974 No. 32 AFS Student Has Many Interests By Laurie Jones With the approach of a new school year, no doubt there will be some new students in school. One of them will be Karin Hammer, the AFS student from South Africa. Karin's present home is in Johannesburg. During the 1974-1975 school year she will live with the Don Jones family. Her father is a civil engineer. Her mother is a housewife. Her one and only brother is a doctor, while her older sister is majoring in psychology and mathematics. Karin's other sister is in nursing. Also occupying their home is a menagerie of animals, including two dogs, three cats, ten budgies, two fan-tail pigeons, a ring-neck dove, two ducks and a rabbit. Karin is quite active in sports at her school. She swims, plays tennis, and also Winners in Oration Event By Vickie Richardson On'May 1 the 1974 Civic Oration Contest was held. The purpose was to stress the attributes of good citizenship in the minds of the pupils, and to help them think and speak more fluently in public. The patriotic subject of this year's contest dealt with volunteer community involvement. It is described in the following way. Volunteer work is the privilege of a free people. The United States is perhaps the most service-minded nation in the world, and "people power" is wnat manes me service go. With the prospect of more leisure time in the future and an increased awareness of the need to serve others, volunteerism will be an important force in the community life. Why do people do volunteer work? What are the advantages of this community involvement? What organization or program in your community does an outstanding job of service work? How can volunteer efforts be supplemented to serve more people? How can young people participate in these vital activities? Pupils in the fifth through junior high grades were eligible tor competition but in this contest seventh grade speech students were the only participants. Contest manager was Miss DorlaHill. Three judges, Mr. Ted Edwards, Deb Osborn, and Mr. Richard Hogan, were selected to review the students based on their delivery, presentation of material, overall effectiveness, and personal qualities. The finalists were Glorianne Collison, Joyce Bruggeman, Bob Blincow, Ronda Welch, Jim Schaefer, with the first and second places taken by Mary Arts (first) and Sheila Furey (second). All of the finalists received Certificates of Participation. The six finalists were given Civic Oration gold-plated pins. The winner and runner-up were each presented with a trophy. enjoys hockey. She also participates in debate, and is a member of their city Junior Council. Her favorite courses are math and biology, however she is unsure of her plans for a future career. Karin speaks both Afrikaans and English. While in the United States Karin will probably notice several differences. Perhaps one of the most obvious will be in the educational systems. In South Africa the children start school at the age of six. At age thirteen they proceed to high school, Technical high schools, or Commercial high schools. School attendance is compulsory for all children until they reach the age of sixteen. Most of the schools in South Africa are state schools, and are under control of each Provincial administration. The private schools are administered by religious oriented groups. The students graduate (matriculate) by writing a public examination. Many of the Government schools are either all-boy or all-girl. However there is a trend for co-ed schools and most of the new ones are co-ed. Private schools are usually all-boy or all-girl and offer boarding in addition to day scholars. The two official languages of South Africa. English and Afrikaans, are compulsory in all schools. Students in English schools take English Higher and Afrikaans Lower, and students in the Afrikaans schools do visa versa. The requirements of graduation are a pass in six subjects. English and Afrikaans and four others such as history, geography, biology, industrial arts, economics, French, Latin, or German. The choice of subjects is not as wide as in the U.S., but each course is studied in depth, in some cases for five years. The equivalent of the Americal grade 1-12, is Grade I, Grade 2 and Standards 1 to 10. Sports are compulsory in all Government High Schools. In winter Rugby football, hockey, and Soccer football for the boys and in the summer swimming, cricket and tennis. Girls play hockey, netball, and 'tennis in the winter, and in the summer tennis and swimming are popular. These sports are played after school, usually around 2:30 to 6:00. It will, however, be through these experiences that Karin will learn through an AFS exchange program.

Swing Show Great Success By Miss Marsh and Miss Hill Last weekend the Carroll High School Music department, under the direction of Mr. Roger Hansen and Mr. John Erickson. presented Tiger Tales, the bi-annual Swing Show. Approximately 175 students were involved either in the bands, choruses or the technical crew. Many long hours were spent in preparation of the program. The sets and costumes were created by the Art and Home Economics departments. The success of .the show was obvious by watching the audience reaction. Pete Marz, Reg Conrad, and Byron'Finch presented a humorous rendition of the Andrews Sisters singing "Daddy". The children in the audience were delighted when an array of animals dispersed into the audience to "talk to" and shake hands with the youngsters. They were leery of the gorilla and alligator, but enjoyed the antics of them all. As the mixed chorus concluded "America the Beautiful", accompained by slides of the United States from the Northwest to the Statue of Liberty, the audience rose to give them a much deserved standing ovation for their performance. Hi-Roforcler Photo Burke is at the drums, and Nathan Tiger Talk By Jerry Fleshner Last week was a busy one for the Tiger golfers, with both the boys' and girls' teams seeing plenty of action. The boys played in three different meets and won two of them. They gave Sac City their first loss of the year, beating them by six strokes 151-157.

The Tigerrettes also competed in the conference meet. Golf and track honors were not the only honors taken at CHS. Randy Hackett, Dean Fische, Jim Petersen, Jeff Stanzyk, and Jim Molitor won the.State Youth Bowling Association Major Championship last week at Des Moines. By Dan Pomeroy Recently, the physics department acquired a new Sharp's Pc-1001 calculator. This is a far cry from our several Master calculators. It not only divides, multiplies, adds and subtracts but also performs numerous scientific calculations. It has eight memory registers including a programmable function key. It does all trigonometric, logarithmic, and exponential functions, including a separate square root function key. Through its formula programming system we can program scientific formulas into the calculator using up to sixty-four steps. The "computer", as the physics students call it, has proven invaluable in scientific calculations. It literally cuts the time in half on most long or exponential calculations, and is accurate to eight places. Often, in school, we employ the use of such various helpful mechanical aids including everything from calculators to overhead projectors. Yet. we rarely give a thought to express our gratitude to the people who obtain these things for us. The case of the new calculator is just one of the instances in which our business affairs office deserves a "pat on the back", for making such wise use of our available funds. Through such aids the administration helps to promote the educational process to a fuller extent of effectiveness. Journalists Feted at Dinner The Carroll High Recorder held their annual dinner on May 6. The members of the staff were treated to a dinner at the Pizza Hut.

Therefore, a number of activities other than afternoon classes were offered to the students. A six-piece band from Morningside College took over the auditorium until 3:30. Nathan Fair and Cary Burke, former CHS students, were members of the group. The band played a wide variety of music, including songs by Chicago. James Gang, and some original numbers. A highlight of the afternoon was a song written by Nathan Fair, called "My Lady", which the band played, featuring Nathan on keyboards. Students were able to sit on the floor and listen to the music, talk to friends, and dance. Everyone was also invited to visit any classroom to talk with teachers, or to read in the library, and many chose to do so.
