Magrath has never entered the Lethbridge festival before because the band was involved in other engagements. "We alwayr semed to be busy, either preparing for the annual Canadian Band Directors' Association festival or else getting the marching band ready for the summer." he says. Tom Alston, Grade 9 student at Magrath and trumpet player for the band, feels it has a pretty food chance at the festival. "Our band consists mostly of Grade 8 and 9 students who get to play some of the lead parts. In other bands, the leads are usually played by older members." The band has won a number of firsts, including top mark out of 79 bands at the International Music Festival in Moose Jaw two years ago and the top rating the annual regional festival, sponsored by the Canadian Cand Directors' Association last weekend in Magrath. The band of 70 musicians is compqsed of 18 Grade 8 students, 21 Grade 9's and the rest high school students. Mr. Hunter is pleased, with the group for "as young as they are have made some outstanding performances in competitions where the majority of bands are composed of Grade 11 and 12 students." The band will only lose about four or five members this year and Mr Hunter has high hopes for the group during the next few years. "I hope the members will be able to develop a mature sound in their music." The school division supplies the big instruments for the band. Each student must pay out anywhere from 1290 to 1400 for their own instruments but tubas are up to The Canadian band program is picking up, especially in Southern Alberta, he says. "It's surprising to note the number of American directors that have moved up here to teach school Band director Boyd Hunter leads the group in preparation for the Kiwanis Music Festival Last year, we set up a new Employment Expense Deduction that applied to most Canadians...but almost half a million people forgot to take it. Probably because it was new and we didn't tell you enough about it, you forgot to take advantage of it. And of course, when we ran across the oversight on your return, we corrected it and made sure you did get it. (Which also explains why a number of people received a refund that was more than they expected.) Anyway. This year remember to deduct your Employment Expense Deduction, because if we don't have to correct it on your return, we can process it faster and in turn, get your refund to you faster. Who does it apply to? Almost every employee who worked for any length of time last year. There are very few exceptions to this, which are outlined in your Guide, Item 4, but by and large it's for everyone who was employed.

Trumpeters practicing lead parts Young Canadians mature after federal spanking By ANDY ROY OTTAWA (CP) Remember the Company of Young Canadians, that Canadian version of the Peace Corps; described as a million experiment in government sponsored anarchy' It's still with us, but matured after a federal spanking that apparently cured its rebelliousness and gave its officers cause to think. Now it has a budget for 1974-75, more than 230 volunteers and about 200 projects under way That's a long way from November, 1969, when a Commons committee reported to Parliament that elements of the company were associated with "subversion, violence and illegality, which the administrators of the company were apparently powerless to and its financial procedures were "questionable and unconventional." It had a budget of then, but that was enough to finance activities that brought protests from across the country Opposition MPs complained of government sponsored hippies, Communists, separatists and revolutionaries bringing unrest to their constituencies and Prairie premiers called for withdrawal of CYC "agitators and radicals" sent into their provinces by Ottawa. The last straw came in 1969 when Montreal city officials testified that CYC volunteers had organized 35 demonstrations in the city in 13 months and were distributing literature advocating anarchy. But that's all history now and the Company of Young Canadians has grown up, said executive director Dal Broadhead. One of the first CYC volunteers, he took over in October, 1970, after reorganization by then director Claude Vidal and legislation removed authority from volunteers and set it squarely with government appointed administrators. "We've just completed a -The Herald Youth three-year phase of redevelopment, assessing what we're good at and defining our Mr Broadhead said. "It has to do with the way we work. We're much closer to the community and what we're good at is much clearer." It appears that what the company is good at is community development and helping underprivileged groups gain some sense of control over their economic and social environment. The underprivileged include injured workmen, native people, psychiatric patients, prisoners and ex-convicts, unemployed farmers, fishermen, paperworkers, the poor, the dispossessed and the said projects today'aim at helping provide income through co- operative employment ventures, save money through co-operative housing and develop a sense of community through co-operative media. Success or failure of an individual project is seen as less important than teaching communities to organize themselves and look after their own needs, but the CYC now can point to a string of successful projects Lumber workers in Mont Laurier, Que., got CYC aid to establish co-operative control over two local mills that shut down in 1971. Mantimers have been helped with co-operative fishing industries, while agricultural areas in central Canada have seen co-ops grow. The CYC has had two volunteers helping organize a co-operative French language television service in Hull, Que., which will go on the air next fall A social housing project m a Cape Breton town has been so successful that two neighboring county govern- ments have approached the company to estab- lish similar projects in their areas. New Zealand and some European countries have shown an interest in the CYC as a development agency and may copy its methods. CYC volunteers get a month for their work, or if they have dependents Next year's budget is up from the 000 of 1973-74. Calgary Public Bldg 205-8th Avenue S E., Calgary, Alta. T2Q OL1 -265-8890 Federal Public Bldg., 9820- 107th Street, Edmonton, Afta. T5K1E8-425-3510 Wilson hosts fair More than 64 projects have been entered in the 4th Annual Social Studies Fair to be held from noon to 4 p.m Saturday at Wilson Junior High School. Coordinator of the Fair, Gene Eisler, instructor at Catholic Central High School, says the fair is open to students from Grades 1 to 12 in schools throughout Southern Alberta. Some of the projects will include displays on the North West Mounted Police, agriculture, Eskimos and ancient Egyptian life. Mr. Eisler says the aim of the fair is to encourage students to display the results of their investigations in the new social studies curriculum. Trophies willbe awarded in lower elementary, upper elementary, junior high and best overall categories. Judging of the projects will take place one hour before the fair opens to the public. LEISTER'S MUSIC LTD. Campus Corner By CAROLYN STERENBERG Winston Churchill High School The first few days of this week have seemed like the quiet after the storm It was a fun, sometimes nerve-wracking storm which comes under the heading of producing a musical This year, Fiman's Rainbow For over 100 students and teachers, Sunday was the first day of relaxation, free from the business of dawn to dusk The complaining was loud and frequent during the two weeks prior to the first performance, but everyone really enjoyed the production Even though Sunday was relaxing, the evening-was empty, without the hustle and bustle of preparations for the show In spite of minor problems and confusion, the show was widely enjoyed and is missed "by members of the cast and crew. It looks like spring, but off to a somewhat hesitant beginning. The sign of spring most noticeable to everyone is the vast number of cyclists out for their first ride The greatest advantage to riding in the early part of the year is the lack of bugs. My own years of riding have taught me never to talk while riding. If talking is necessary, turn your face to the side. The only drawback to this method is that it tends to cause accidents if you don't watch where you're going. Expo '74 in Spokane js in the final stages of preparation. About 100 students from WCHS will be travelling by bus for a six-day tour They will be leaving May 9 and will be staying in the residence at Gonzaga University. The students have held bottle drives, raffles and bake sales in an effort to raise money for the trip to the World's Fair. Easter holidays are coming up quickly and if the weather is nice, many people will likely be going away.
