CAPTIVE OF NAZI CAMPS MEETS
LIBERATOR, SEARCHES FOR PAST
BOISE, Idaho (AP)-When General Patton’s Third
Army thundered into Buchenwald camp in Germany on
April 1,1945,13-year-old Mitka Kalinski was terrified
of the men his captors had told him were the enemy.
Now, Kalinski, who goes by Tim, says, “I want to get
ahold of all of Patton’s army and thank them.”
Kalinski met with Boisean Wayne French, 83, who
was with Patton on that Easter Sunday.
He thanked French for the part he played in stopping
WOMAN ATTEMPTS TO ROB BANK
WITH GARAGE DOOR OPENER
BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (AP)- A woman who told
bank tellers that a device she was holding controlled a
bomb in her car was carrying a garage door opener,
Jacqueline Paluszak of Westerville demanded money
from three tellers at a Mid Am Bank branch just before
5 p.m, but they rushed her when they realized what was
in her hands.
The tellers sat on her until police arrived.
“I think their first clue was when they saw ‘Sears’ on
the end of the garage door opener,” said Police Chief
Paluszak, 47, was charged with unarmed bank
robbery. She was being held in the Lucas County jail on
Friday on the federal charge.
POLICE CHIEF SUSPENDED FOR
PHILADELPHIA (AP)- A suburban Philadelphia
police chief was suspended for spanking a female
employee in 1989, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported.
The Lower Merion Board of Commissioners said
they had suspended Police Superintendent Joe Daly for
20 days without pay for “violating township policy.”
The board’s unanimous vote to suspend will cost Daly
about $5,000 of his $65,000 annual salary. He will also
not be eligible to receive a 4 percent raise based on his
Due to the increase in the freshman
credit requirements, the administra-
tion has updated the schedule for the
1995-1996 school year, according to
Rose Mediano, principal.
The schedule next year will oper-
ate on the alternating block schedule.
Students will have eight scheduled
classes that will be diveded up over
two days. One day students will report
to periods one through 4, the next day
periods five through eight. Classes
will be 100 minutes Ions and student
will have a 45 minute lunch period.
School will begin at 8:10 a.m. and will
dismiss at 4:10 p.m.
An importantaddition to next year’s
curriculum is the lab classes that will
be offered next year in math, science
and english courses. The purpose of
these lab classes is to provide more
time to students who need it and to
provide another class for someone
interested in the subject These classes
will be offered on the opposite day
that a student takes the corresponding
course. These classes will provide
essential lessons used to enrich the
math, science or english course being
taken. However, since students re-
ceive weighted credit for these labs
they will have requirements of their
own such as homework.
Another change in the schedule
system is that students will get the
BlackDav Gold Dav
Students will report to periods 1-4 on Mondays and Wednesdays (BlackDay). On
Tuesdays and Thursdays students will report to periods 5-8 (Gold Day).
opportunity to schedule their own
classes in an arena style system. One
Friday will be set aside for students to
meet with department heads and
schedule their classes by courses, pe-
riod and teacher. The system will be
run by first come, first serve (however
seniors will still receive priority). If a
student fails to schedule his/her sched-
ule on that day the counselors will do
it for them. This system was designed
so that counselors can circumvent the
numerous scheduling changes because
of student dissatisfaction.
Fridays will remain half- day fun
days with the exception that more
enriched classes will be offered. For
instance english seminars and cin-
emas will be offered. These classes
will not be remedial but are designed
to provide students with more instruc-
tion time or study time if needed. The
Friday schedule is tentative however
because if at the end of the fall semes-
ter if more instruction time is deemed
necessary, Friday will become a half-
day academic day.
All these changes were prompted
by the increase in credit requirements
required for the Recomended High
School transcript, also known as the
advanced transcript, for the incoming
sophomores. Instead of the now re-
quired 23 credits, students need 25.
The current schedule was not de-
signed to accomodate this change.
Student reactions to the changes
“It's OK that you can get
more credits in a year, but
it's not so great m the way
it's chopped up.”
1 “We're losing class time.” -
“Actually, I like the sched-
ule. I like the schedule be-
: cause it allows for a sched-
ule of higher learning.”
“It is confusing. It gives
teachers a chance to double
up on homework because

“Fine arts and extra cur-
ricular activities will suf-
fer and long class periods
will become boring.”

schedule will allow for

School begins new scheduling system
Next year along with the change in the schedule the
administration will also implement a change in the sched-
uling system, according to Rose Mediano, principal.
This year students
will be given the respon-
sibility of designing
their own schedules via
the arena- style system
that will be used.
The system works
when a student will first
plan out the schedule
he/she wants. Then on
the day set aside to de-
sign the schedule the
student will meet with
the heads of the depart-

and teacher. However, the student needs to keep in mind
that this process is run on a first come, first serve basis, so

The change was made in order to circumvent the last
minute schedule changes that students request because of
their dissatisfaction. According to Mediano many students
request revisions just because they didn't want the class at
a specific time or with a certain teacher. By allowing the
students to make their own choices, they are eliminating
Student reactions to the change have been positive. “I
think its cool because you can design your schedule in a
way that makes you feel comfortable, for instance by
coordinating it with friends.” said Daniel Pamperin, jun-
