Fayette School News Fourth Grade — Reports and using exact words has been our work in language. In arithmetic we have begun our multiplication table of nine. It came as a pleasant surprise to discover we had only one new fact to learn. Drill work on all the multiplication facts, fractions, and reviewing place value is some of our other work. Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania has been a very interesting city to study. In the unit we learned how steel and iron were made. Slag, ingot, coke, and open hearth, are some new words added to our vocabulary. Layton Olsen won a spelldown in spelling. Steve Lindell and Scott Linge won an arithmetic spelldown. Miss Weber is teaching most of the classes now. We enjoy having two teachers. Thanks to Bobby Nefzger, Scott Linge, Rodney Miller, Larry Jameison, Marisue Yates and Mary Manderfield for their birthday treats. Fifth Grade — We are working hard to cover as much of our studies as we can these last few weeks of school. We found out that we could not move ahead though, unless we learned our lessons well. This was demonstrated by our having to take a test three times over a chaplain health. Learning to name the five food families phis some other hard words to spoil really caused trouble. We havi? had tests over 100 words in language this week, too. David Swehln and Marsha Frey each had ;i perfect paper on 5(1 of the words. We had seven perfect scores on our test over Unit III in social studies. We are ready to learn about Canada next week. In arithmetic we have worked all wee-k on perimeter and area. Some people can't "see" what we mean by area. So far pictures and diagrams and paper cut outs have not cleared this up for everyone. Our whole room congratulates Ricky Scheidel. His poem tied for first place in the Iowa Poetry Day Association Contest. Both Ricky and Mrs. Kverett received nice certificates from I. P. D. A. The poem is included in this week's paper. Ricky's poem is as follows: My Treasure Richard Scheidel As I walk to school each day, I always look :>long the way. One morning a caterpillar I found, Crawling slowly on the ground. I put him in a jar that noon, And in a short time I had a cocoon. I'm watching and hoping that by ;md by, I'll have a pretty butterfly.

Commentator speaks On Americanism Commentator and former foreign correspondent Richard Thomas re ently told an Assembly mcet'nu at Kayette Community high school that if the students work hard and achieve high grades, they can beat the Soviet Union every day in school. Relating his experienei s behind the Iron Curtain where he goes every year lie look his andienc" on an imaginery but vivid "trip" into the U. S. S. H. He "showed" them Moscow, familiared (hem with the life of Kus.sian boys and girls, and pointed to the lack of freedom under which people are forced to live in Russia. After "seeing" Moscow, the stud wits "visited" a school in Odessa and learned of the strict discipline in Soviet education. Then they "studied" a .steel plant in Volga grad, and were told by Russian steel workers and researchers thai the U. S. S. R. fi els that it is now in first place in the world. Richard Thomas rejected this thesis, and told his stndi nls that the United States can turn had; the Soviet menace of all Americans unite, under freedom, and present a solid front in defense of liberty and decency. American military power, he added, is tremendous. "And no one knows better than Khrushchov", he declared "that World War Three would mean the fJ st iiftion of the Soviet Union." He b' ustcd the K'vmline dictator as a m:i*t T of th" a-t of deceit, In t said he will back down-in fad. has backed down at rvery / mencan show of force and strcn gt'i. ''Our answer to the Soviet threat", he concluded, ' nv.ift b^> a policy of strong resistance by Washington, and a national d/termination never to yield befo: e the manacc of (lodlcss. atheistic Com- nv,miM!i."
