New Teachers Join GHS Staff Algeria, (la.) Upper Dts Molnn Tuesday, August 23, 1966 With one week remaining until the beginning of classes, a staff of 26 faculty members is now working over the final details before greeting over 500 students on August 29 and 30. Rev. Gerald Zcman Eight new members will be joining eighteen of last year's faculty to help form what many Rev. Cecil Friedmann, Superintendent STAR '66 Faculty, Students Initiate Four - Year - Studies - Program A four-year program of studies will be initiated at Garrigan this fall under the direction of the Rev. Cecil Friedmann, superintendent. The purpose of this plan is to broaden the students' education. The new plan will require five credits per year instead of the former four, enabling the students to take a greater variety of courses. "Garrigan will be one of the few schools in the area," according to Father Friedmann, "that will be using this type of program." Freshmen will be required to take a specially designed course called aesthetics. In its simplest form aesthetics means the appreciation of the fine arts. Sisters Celebrate Mass Together Garrigan's two groups of Franciscan sisters will join forces in more than educational matters this year as they celebrate the Liturgy together each school day morning in the Garrigan chapel with the Rev. Gerald Zeman officiating. This new arrangement is a result of the appointment of the Rev. Marvin Boes to Boone, leaving St. Joseph's parish in Bode without an assistant to offer Mass early enough for the sisters to reach Garrigan before morning classes. Sister Marie of the Wesley Franciscans terms this "a happy result for Franciscan ecumenism !" Garrigan will offer the opportunity to gain such an appreciation by combining one day of music with Sister Mary Dominica, PBVM, one day of art with Sister Mary Iva, OSF, and three days of speech with Sister Mary Alfred, OSF, Sister Mary Ignatius, PBVM, and Sister Mary Michael, OSF, in each week of the course. Journalism will be offered as an alternate English ni for those who have maintained an average of B or above in English n and who would like to work on the Star or Garigold staffs during their senior year. Debate will also be offered as an English alternate for sophomores, juniors and seniors. Under the new program a total of 20 credits will be required for college-bound students and 18 for those in the general education curriculum. All students must take four years of religion-social science, four years of English, one year of algebra or genexal math (as freshman), one year of biology (as sophomores), one year of American history (as juniors), one year of American government - economics (as seniors). College-bound students will also be offered four years of Latin, two years of Spanish, two years of French, three additional years of math, and two additional lab sciences. Other electives include art, bookkeeping, business math, clothing, earth science, foods, homemaking, secretarial practice, shorthand, technical drawing, typing, woodworking and world geography. contend to be the finest academic staff in the area.
