Kuemper Charger Published by the Students of Kuemper High School Vol. 6 Carroll, Iowa, Saturday Oct. 10, 1959 No. 5 General Science Students on Tour Of Sewage Plant- Thirty nine general science students recently got n first-hand view and detailed' explanation of the city sewage disposal plant near Ocoma. The trip was planned to tie in nicely with their study of water p.nd waste disposal. Mr. Leo Clark. City Engineer. showed them the plant and proceeded to explain how the sewage disposal operation is similar to that of digestion in the human body. The students came back grateful, well informed, and convinced that Carroll was not lacking in a well equipped sewage system. Back in school, the students recently received a demonstration table for use in class for which they arc most grateful. Demonstrations make class more interesting and. at the same time, serve to illustrate and varify, the physical principles of science. One of their major demonstrations so far was the effect of atmospheric pressure on a tin can. They found that by boiling water in the can. turning off the source of heat, and then sealing the top of the can. a vacuum is created and the inward force exerted by atmospheric pressure brings about a collapse of the can. In addition, Sister Mary Medard's two classes have generated oxygen, distilled water and tested the accuracy of thermometers. The realm of heat is now being studied by the students. Instructors in general science are the Rev. Robert Condon and Sister Mary Medard. Vincent Lenz Heads Latin Club Vincent Lenz, a third year Latin student, was recently elected consul (president) of the Latin Club, Amici Latini, for this school year. Other officers elected were: Praetor, Rosemary Balk; Quaestor, James Goetzinger; and Judy Rothmeyer was named reporter. All four students are juniors at Kuemper. Various students in the mixed class of juniors and seniors were ineligible because of other offices they are now holding in the school. Sister M. Pauline, Latin instructor, conducted the first meeting. One of the many things the Latin Club will do is draw up a Constitution. This is the third year Kuemper has had a Latin Club. The purposes of the club are: 1. To establish interest in the Latin language and in Latin literature. 2. To become acquainted with Roman heritage in American government and in our daily life. 3. To train for leadership. Comments Given on World History Why are we taking world history? Is it of any value to us? These are some of the questions asked by freshmen and here are some of the answers given by others in the class: Martin Wuebker: "I like history because it is an opening up .of the past and a guide for the future. In it we learn hosv the alphabet that we use today originated and about the first laws. Therefore history is important for a good future." Marvin Schreck: "Freshmen his- SCHOLAKSH1P SEMIFINALISTS . . . Judith Relbold and Stephen Viiiitveil have been named scmifinalists jn the 1959-60 National Merit Scholarship competition, (he Rev.

On Oct. 12, they will be seen in the traditional Kuemper uniform. It will consist of the regulation navy blue jumper, white blouse, white anklets, and any suitable school shoes in colors, black, white, brown, or gray. When sweaters are worn with uniforms they must be white or navy blue, open clown the front, without a collar, and long sleeves. Novelty weaves and styles are not permitted. Hair ribbons are the only ornament allowed in the hair and they must be white, navy blue, or black. All jewelry except wrist watches and a religious medal and chain are a violation of uniform regulations. If the uniforms are kept clean and taken care of over the weekend it should be a rare sight to see a Kuemper girl out of uniform. Proficiency Aim of Junior Orchestra The Junior Orchestra at Kuemper, directed by Sr. Cecilienne, is a training group whose aim is to develop proficiency on their instruments so that they will later be able to join the Senior Orchestra. This group learns basic training in rhythm, styles and harmony. The members are Jerry Abbott, Kathleen Nieland, and Shirley Quandt, violins; Margaret Maher, Patricia Vasos, and Teresa Leonard, violas; Agatha Loew, cello; Charlene lory is a necessary subject in high >™ey, string bass, Janet Schwabe, flute; and Darlene Wessling, per- school because it gives us an idea 'of how the ancient people lived, cussion. As a result of their present worked, and enjoyed themselves.

This year members of the staff are endeavoring to give a wider over-all school picture coverage with less accentuation on departments as such.

Second prize went to the senior girls. Their entry was a floral arch of triumph and a Kuemper Knight overpowering a Holy Name Rambler. Third prize float winner was the junior boys. Their float contained a large train engine representing the idea, "We'll Choo Choo over the Ramblers." The five other floats were all displays of hard work and great origi nality on the part of the students. Kuemper came through with flying colors at the game, dominating the Rambler, 27 to 6.

RYAN Associated Press News Analyst Little or big, cold wars are all alike. To be an able cold war statesman, a man has to learn how to look reasonable without budging an inch. What he says to his adversary, in effect, is: "I propose to give in to one or the other of your more reasonable demands. In return I ask that you do something I already know is impossible for you. All this will get us nowhere, in reality, but it provides something to talk about, and while we're talking, at least we're not fighting." In the Middle East's own cold war, Gamal Abdel Nasser of the United Arab Republic has demonstrated the application of this basic cold .war rule once again. It is not peculiar to him. It's common to all cold war participants. That master of cold war politics, Nikita S. Khrushchev, applies the rule over and over again in the big East-West contest. In Cairo, Nasser shows himself to be an astute student of modern cold war tactics. In an interview with Wilton Wynn of The Associated Press, Nasser expressed willingness to let a United Nations commission carry out a Security Council resolution providing for freedom of shipping for all the Suez Canal, including Israel. This sounds attractive. Israel has been trying to force this issue to a showdown. But what is the price? Israel, says Nasser, must accept internationalization of Jerusalem and the 1947 U.N. plan for partitioning Palestine. The Arabs went to war in 1948 rather than submit to that program. They lost. Israel occupied territory which otherwise might have been Arab. She also took half of Jerusalem, ancient citadel of Zion, and set up a capital there. Obviously, Israel will not surrender voluntarily on either of these issues. Neither Israel nor Nasser, who still must be considered the main voice of the Arabs, seems to make much of an attempt to get down to reality in talking about how their 11-year-old state of war might be ended. But Nasser has put a finger on one thing which might help prepare the way. In his package proposal, he asked that Israel cori- ccde the right of Palestine refugees from Israeli territory to choose whether they will return to their former homes or accept payment for their losses^ If Nasser had confined his proposal to swapping the Suez concession for the Arab refugee concession, it would have a chance ol getting somewhere. Tied in with the other demands, the proposal remains just talk. It's possible something could be accomplished if the refugee question could be settled. Few of the million refugees, it is certain, would choose to return to their old homes under Israeli rule. But for the sake of their dignity, they want to have the choice between that and- compensation. The pay- .nent would be costly, but far ess so than a new war, or even he never-ending threat of such a war in the Middle East. The refugee question is the key problem 'n the search for stability. The idea of such a swap is sound and logical. Only Nasser, cjmong the leaders of the Arabs, strong enough to bo able to ifford logic in that ever-perturbed ilice of the world.
