1 THI UTHMID3I HBMJ.D Thursday, April 1J, WJ Accent on Youth Hamilton Hamilton swoops badminton tourney By JUDY MELNYK Hamilton Junior High boys and girls boomed to a terrific victory at the badminton tour- nament last Saturday at LCI. Hamilton proudly took all six available pennants for the first time. Schools participating were Allan Watson Elementary v.-ith Grade 7 teams. Paterson, Wilson, and Hamilton. The tournament lasted throughout the day, leaving the teams thoroughly exhausted. The vdnning teams were de- termined by the amount of points achieved; a win receiv- ed two points, a tie one, and a loss zero. It is interesting to note that Hamilton won by an extremely wide margin. The six Hamilton teams prac- ticed for approximately two and a half weeks prior to the tournament. Coaches were Lin- da McKenzie for the three girls' teams, Hugh Grant for Grade 7 boys, and Edmund Cordeiro for Grade 8 and 9 boys' team. The efforts of these teachers are greatly appreciated by all the students. The big day began bright and early at a.m. with the Grade 7 teams' competitions. Out of the 27 games played, they made 48 points, including only two losses and one tie. The boys also played 27 games and came up with 38 points, seven losses and two ties. This was the first for Hamilton and an excellent way to start the day. The Grade 8's also did well. They won their set. The girls played 32 games, lost only one and had 62 points. The boys ended their mini-tourney at 3 p.m. with 60 points. like the girls, they only had one loss, and brought home another pen- nant. By now, all participants and spectators were at a high level of enthusiasm. The Grade 9 boys and girls did equally well. The girls played 32 games, lost seven, and had 50 points. The boys played the same number of games, lost only two, plus two ties, and produced 58 points. At p.m. the pennants were presented to all Hamilton teams by Ed Henderson. This has shown the great ath- letic ability of Hamilton and the spirit created within it. A "thank you" must go out to all teachers concerned for their eager interest to assist wherever possible, and once more, WAY TO GO HAMIL- TON! LEISTER'S MUSIC LTD. Campus Corner By CAROL SEARS Lethbridge Community College Canadian institutions of edu- cation have then- strong points and their weak, as do institu- tions everywhere. However where improvement could be made, the progress seems to be retarded by some sort of backward way of look- ing at things. What I'm really looking at is secondary education the courses it offers, and the ma- terial presented. Secondary education is sup- posedly the process of readying a person for employment in whatever field he chooses. It apparently is serving that pur- pose. Here is an improvement that education has started to look at. For a major part of our lives we learn the theoretical aspects of things, but this theory does us absolutely no good, if we don't know how to apply it That is a learaag process in itself. Many of the courses provid- ed IKW, send the student out into the market and ha can learn by watching and doing. I, think this has been most effec- live, but it should be employed more often. Secondly, the courses them- selves should be beneficiary to the student. Their original in- tent probably was just that, but some of them seem too slap- stick. It's bard to understand why you need them, or they tend to be repetitious, like some English courses. Now, it seems you can only expound on the English lan- guage or English literature un- less you are majoring in that field. I think it's fine to know as much about English as pos- sible, but when you delve into "The Death of a for example, three times in the past three years, it all seems pretty senseless. That is repetition. And finally, the course ma- terial needs badly to be revis- ed. Canada is not a society without a culture of her own. I will bet that three-quarters of the reference material we use is not Canadian at all. I am quite sure that we have just as many talented or in- famous Canadians that we never hear about in school, as all the Americans we read about. Education is revolutionizing but it is really too bad that it's taking so long. Take to the air Lethbridge Community College environmental students are getting last minute instructions before taking off to get an aerial view of Southern Alberta prairie. They get a view of the work done by experienced photographers. LCC students get a birds vieiv For the third year at Leth- bridge Community College, stu- dents of environmental science are flexing their wings in an Track meet set for May NEENA AHLUWALIA and LOUISE HENDRICKS March at Paterson went out like a lion. We had a very suc- cessful carnival. Everyone who attended enjoyed the game booths and the variety of priz- es won. Today is the beginning of the last activity block. New activ- ities have been added including quite a bit of popularity be- cause of recent camp-outs in the mountains. With the coming of spring, thoughts turn to the outdoors. Paterson track and field meet is tentatively set for May 24. We have had a great track and field team in previous years and hope to have another this year. Thoughts also turn to the fu- ture. This is especially true of the Grade 9 class. They will be graduating from Paterson May 25. With Easter just around the corner, most teachers are press- ing deadlines for assingments. Since there are only six weeks after Easter, remarks such as "wow, do you realize we've got seven mere chapters and "we'll never get finished this course" are being heard around the school. attempt to understand the uses of aerial photography. Once each semester, LCC students take to the air in a chartered plane to get a bird's eye view of Southern Alberta coulees, rivers, foothills and rural landscapes. About 10 environmental stu- dents flew across the Leth- bridge prairie this month, join- ing about 30 other experienced aviators who have taken the aerial course from LCC during the past three years. Instructor Mary Rigby says although students don't take photos themselves, they have a first-hand view of work done by government-sanctioned pho- tographers on the flight. Flying time gives students a better jnderstanding of the prairie landscape and possible land usage dictated by the ter- eye mental scientists. Mrs. Rigby terms the program a "fun day" for students, the high point of their courrc. rain. Aerial photos can be used in land assessment for tax pur- poses, irrigation flows and mapping co-ordinates. A typical LCC flight could In- clude a pattern west up the Oldman River to Fort Mac- leod, northeast over the Porcu- pine Hills to Happy Valley, down the valley to Pincher Creek, then south over Leth- bridge. Success of the in-flight pro- ject could be termed a real "soar point" for LCC environ- Catholic Central Portrait to play By SHERRY JOHNSON and NANCY McMAHON It's just about that time again the close of another school term. For Grade 12 students, how- ever, this semester's termina- tion will have a significant meaning. Their 12 years of ed- ucational training will soon give way to a new stage in their lives. An end, and still a begining; symbolized by one galla cele- bration graduation. Catholic Central's graduation ceremonies wiE be held May 11 and 12. They will open with Hamilton Hamilton students capture awards j the school's traditional 9 a.m. mass at St. Patrick's Church. A closed practice at Yates Memorial Centre will be followed by a luncheon for the grads. Then it will be home to add the finishing touches to to- morrow's wardrobe. At 7 p.m.. May 12, the grad- uates will listen to speeches, and receive diplomas at t h e Yates. A dance to the band. Portrait, will follow the Grand March, This year's grads have been both ambitious and anxious in accumulating funds for the ac- tivities. Bake sales and bottle drives dominate their source of fund-raising. All in all. graduation will add a few precious moments to their growing lives and a cherished collection of memorires. Hamilton scores Winston Churchill Gov't sponsors youth program By BREPOA KOSAKA Summer means travelling and for 20 students It will be to Trois-Riveres, Quebec. The Young Voyageur pro- gram, sponsored by the federal and provincial governments, will take place July 2 to July 16. The Rotary Club cf east Lethbridge has once again agreed to host the incoming students from Nova Scotia July 18 to July 31. Grade 11 students will be given first chance to be chos- en. The distribution of students from Lethbridge schools is 10 representatives from LCI, four from Catholic Central and six from Winston Churchill. This year at WCHS, a ques- tionaire on the voyageur pro- gram is to be filled by any in- terested students. It is the hope of students' council to send only those who really want to go. Examples of the kind of questions are: how far have you travelled, are you willing to host a student from Nova Scotia and what are your rea- sons for applying. With spring, comes a new semester, new classes and a new students' council. At WCHS, nominations open April 11 and close April 18. Voting day is May 12. Once, again, any fiat surface will be covered by flashy post- ers with catchy slogans. Cam- paign managers and speeches are a part of the election scene. It is time again when popu- larity versus dedication and hard work. It may give a per- son a felling of prestige to have a good friend on the stu- dents' council. The student who will be elected president must have a lot of spare time during and after scohol which may mean juggling of classes. He or she must be interested in all stu- dent activities, functions, and productions. The president must believe in the school and what It stands for. Plus, he or she must learn to accept criticism and be easy to get along with. To keep up the image of WCHS's student body is also an important duty. No matter what anybody feels or says, there are school board and ad- ministration policies under which the students' council must operate. Along with electing a presi- dent, a first vice-president from the senior class, a second vice- president from the sophomore class, and a third vice-presi- dent from the freshman class must be elected. WCHS will be making some academic changes next year so a versatile students' council will be needed. If you lon't care about student government, what government are you going to care about? Band really close By CHER HUNTER Last Friday, the Hamilton Junior High School band was entered in the music festival at the Yates Memorial Centre. We started to work on two pieces entitled Elizabethen Suit and Air and March two months prior to the festival. Practice, practice, practice, that's all we ever seemed to do. At rehearsals, the band master, Jack Adamson, would tell us things until he was blue in the face. Finally, two weeks before the festival, the band really set- tled down to the festival num- bers. When the big day came around, we all boarded the bus and headed for the Yates. No one seemed nervous but when the adjudicator rang the bell for us to begin, we all felt tense. We did Air and March first because it was the least diffi- cult. When the second piece over, we could hear the adjudicator making comments about our playing on a tape re- corder. We stayed and heard all the other bands and the band from Taber seemed the most out- standing. The scores were really close with W. R. Myres 83, Wilson 82. Hamilton 81, and Paterson, presumably 80. Students plan excursion through British Columbia In about a week's time, 20 Grade 12 students from Winston Churchill High School will be up at the crack of dawn for a 10-day excursion to the wilds of British Columbia. The senior students, accom- panied by instructor Wendell Mills, will cover more than miles in their round-trip project from Lethbridge to Vic- toria. Included on their itinerary will be visits to Kamloops, Vancouver, the Okanagan and Banff National Park all part of a program instigated by the school's See B.C. Club. Club president Terry Kennon says the group will leave WCHS by bus at 6 sum. April 20 for Kamloops, where stu- dents will stop overnight be- fore continuing on to Vancou- ver. Mr. Kennon said students will be accommodated at _ a Van- couver hostel and expect to tour the MacMillan Planetar- ium, Stanley Park, Simon Fraser University, the Univer- sity of British Columbia, the city's aquarium and zoo. A charter boat tour of fee Vancouver harbour is also in- cluded in the student agenda. Lethbridge students will sail to Victoria for visits to the capital city's wax museum, Legislature, undersea exhibi- tion and hieroglyphic park. The return trip will include stops at Vernon and Banff. Mr. Kennon said expenses for the trip will be covered by stu- dent dues to the See B.C. Club (ranging from to per member) and a to subsidy from the WCHS stu- dents' council. He said local students expect to return to Lethbridge April 29. Catholic Central Short plays rehearsed for festival By DEBBIE McKENNA Senior drama students, under the direction of Gloria Benz, are rehearsing two one act plays for the drama festival this month. The first play is entitled Giant's Stair, with Lillian Kolodziej, Kathy Opyr and Mark Campbell playing the lead parts. The second play entitled Afterwards has Bea Rabl and Doug Matisz playing the lead roles. In this there are two or more supporting char- acters, who, as Mrs. Benz puts it, "play bodies en the stage or more or less." Stage managers for both pro- ductions are Curt Lozzi and Richard Kreminik.
