Following mass Pope Paul was carried on his throne, and the people that jammed the square went wild. "The population of Rome is now three million and traffic is really terrible," said Gene.

Kathy, who now lives in Fenton, recently wrote an article for the Sentral High School paper, the "Beep", in which she told some of Uie interesting differences in high school in Germany and Sentral. The Weisbaden school was much larger, had nine buildings and 1800 students in grades nine through 12. German teens are not much different from American teens, wrote Kathy, they wear the same style clothes, watch the same movies, read the same books and listen to the same records. If a record hits the number one place here in the States, it will usually hit the German top 10. Some songs are translated, usually those that stay in the number one place for awhile . Most records though are kept in English. There are 3 main differences between us. One is that very few German teens have cars. They usually walk, or take a bike to where they want to go. That also includes school. There are no school buses in Germany. The second difference is that when German teens work, they give their money to their parents. The parents feel that they have to feed, clothe and provide shelter for the child for 14, 15, or 16 years, so the children should help with the expenses. The third difference is the school. Everyone goes through the first eight grades, but then only the straight A students go on to high school. All others go to trade school. The students that do go on to ..high school take, the same subjects we do. They then go to college if they are straight A students. The government pays for their college training instead of the individual. - o - NEW MUSIC GROUP The Sentral High School choir, under the direction of Mr. Zwiefel, has started a madrigal this year. Madrigal has a very colorful background. It was started around the 16th century as a group singing mostly popular secular songs. In those days, they were comparable to our modern "swingers" such as the Beatles. But instead of staying in this line, the madrigal has become known as the predecessor of the opera. The plans at present for the first public performance will be entitled "O Beloved Shepherds" by Andrea Hammerschmidt. - o - Mr. and Mrs. David Dreyer and boys of Oelwein were weekend guests at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Dreyer and the Arno Juhls, Fenton. Sunday guests at the Frank Dreyer home were Mr. and Mrs. John Hovey.
