Tlu- Herald District 'Youth are people are FORT MACLEOD Randy Nicholson, director of training and organizational development with the department of culture, youth and recreation, was special speaker at the regional award night of the South Alberta Area Council of Junior Forest Wardens and Girl Guards. Mr. Nicholson described his office as setting up programs and giving guidance, especially to groups with a youth component. His objective is to train people in human relations, to help with individual growth and development and to increase communication skills, he said. He is available to assist any group in the province. His summation of the youth of today is: "Today's youth has so many aspects. Generally the youth of today are no different than the youth of yesterday. They live in different times, the requirements of society differ and the youth adjust quicker than ever before. Youth are people. People are good." He said the forest warden movement has an enviable position best described as experimental role playing. It instills in people an awareness of self worth. Increased knowledge demands increased humility. "Potential and actuality are different and closing the gap is no easy he said. "Each member is unique. Individual differences must be acknowledged and respected. Each must learn to relate to others, not dominate and that is true humility."

Parents of pre-schoolers sponsor Pincher workshop PINCHER CREEK A pre-school education workshop, sponsored by the Pre-School Parents Program of Pincher Creek, was held recently. Dr. R. G. Koep, professor of early childhood education at the University of Lethbridge, spoke on the importance of pre-school education. In his lecture he stressed that early childhood education is not a substitute for Grade 1, nor can it be a substitution for the child's home. Instead it should fulfill the following objectives: Promote and maintain a child's physical development, provide social contacts with other children in a structured environment. broaden a understanding of child's the social and scientific world, develop aesthetic experiences and develop a sense of responsibility. An informal discussion with Ms. Jean Kuijet of Lethbridge, on Learning Through Play was held. A GOOD PLACE TO SPEND THE HOUDAY WEEKEND On a long weekend a lot of drivers are so anxious to get out to those country breezes that they throw all caution to the wind. Because they're less cautious, it may pay for you to be a little more cautious. By driving a Volvo, for instance. The Volvo body is so strong we've stacked seven Volvos on top of one another without crushing the one on the. bottom. What gives Volvo this strength are the six steel pillars surrounding the passenger compartment and the thousands of spot welds holding the body together. The trunk and engine compartments are designed differently. They crumple on impact at a pre-measured rate to absorb a collision before it reaches the passenger compartment. On the sides, steel anti-intrusion bars protect the passengers from lateral impact. And in front and back, hydraulic shock absorbers on the bumpers absorb low- speed collisions. But Volvo doesn't just protect you from "the other guy." It can keep you from-- becoming "the other guy." Disc brakes are designed to resist fading, even after repeated panic stops. So Volvo has disc brakes on all four wheels. And Volvo doesn't stop there. It has a braking system with two independent sets of three-wheel disc brakes. If one set fails, the other still gives you about 80% of your braking power. Of course, driver fatigue can be just as dangerous as mechanical failure. So Volvo comes with bucket seats that let you concentrate on the road instead of the pain in your back. The seat-backs are infinitely adjustable with a special adjustment that allows them to be made firmer or softer. And since you really can't concentrate on what's ahead of you when you're worried about what's behind you, Volvo has a rear window defroster. As well as rear door locks that children can't open from inside. So when making plans for a long weekend, maybe you should plan on buying a Volvo. There's nothing like being prepared for the holidays. VOLVO SHORT STOP AUTO LTD. 538 6th St. S., Phone 328-6586 ;
