Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - April 17, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta f 18 - THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD - Friday, April 17, 1970 PRECAUTIONARY STEP - Incidence of common measles is almost five times as great in Canada this year as in the corresponding period of 1969. Common or red measles, which might have harmful after-effects to children, can be controlled by a one-shot vaccine called Lirugen. Parents are urged, to consult their family physician. Traditionally, measles cases peak during the spring months. LEISTER'S MUSIC LTD. Campus Corner By jtDY Mcintosh Winston Churchill High School QRADUATTON will bring 179 students of Winston Churchill to the end of twelve long years of study. Today is the Graduation of 1970. A brief pause will take us" back on the fun, heartaches, happiness, and tears WCHS provided us with. For some this is only the be-gaimiBg of their school life but for others it is the end of books and homework assignments. Today's student is supposedly ready to face the rat race of a world we survive in. He will have to become part of that system he has been fighting so dil-gently against. As he matures, perhaps he will learn that nothing worthwhile cam be gained through the ridiculous opposition many young people support. TMs city iB one of the lucky ones. We don't have as many riotous students most cities possess. We are considered an unlikely place for a revolutionary haven filled with cause seekers. Perhaps this is an insult; rather, our teenagers are more ait-tuned to the actual way it is. Churchill provides every chance for the people in it to experience world situations. It is a student - oriented school that, besides teaching subject matter, presents life. Recently we held a Pollution Seminar and Exhibition. The students came to realize the danger of pollution and wanted to do something about it. Pubic attention was drawn to the condition of our waters, land, and the quality of the air. The response was absolutely astounding. People are concerned about what their environment will 'be like a few years from now. There was no generation gap there, only straight - forward communication. Churchill stu dents are responsive to any suggestions for ridding our generation and the generations to come of this killer, pollution. * * * Now that the seniors are leaving, the sophomores and freshmen are eager to take over and make Churchill even better. Their Student's Council, who appears one of the most capable ever, has been elected and rumor has it they are getting things rolling all ready. On Friday, April 24, there will be a big Wake-a-thcn to raise badly needed money for the Film Club. Sorry, no zombies will be allowed in; just honest-to-goodness alert kids. n (The views voiced . In the above column do not necessarily concur with either those of The Herald or Leister's, but are a reflectioi of the student opinion.) - r TOP TEN LEISTER'S MAIL ORDERSI Tick off the selections you want and send to us.

Phone 327-2669 NEW YORK (CP) - A high-fashion hit of a few seasons back was the circular poncho which emerged in a flurry of Mexican motifs but died out when the hippies adopted them as part of then-far-out costumes, This spring, however, the poncho is back again, along with the fringed shawl which designers have been flirting with for several seasons. The poncho has been endorsed, even if not � overwhelmingly shown in'.collections, by such trend-setters as Pierre Cardin with his hooded poncho to wear with a skirt or over a coat; Modelia of New York with a series of fringed ponchos, and Wragge with a pink silk poncho lined in coral and worn over pink silk pants for evening. In Canada, Etlin Leathers introduces a pastel blue fringed suede poncho and matching straight pants. It's an elegant casual look. And in New York, even the men are inerested in leather ponchos for country wear. Ster ling of Winnipeg is showing for spring a beige-and-white-check fringed poncho over a wrap-style dress., Luv of Montreal has combined the fashion interest in patchwork with a fringed poncho and matching pants in acetate knit. Ponchos are usually circular fUng-ons with a hole for the head. They are worn by Mexican men in the countryside for warmth and protection, instead of a jacket. In South America the descendants of the Incas in Peru wear a poncho version, especially in towns like the old Inca capital of Cuzco high in the Andes. Big Steel of Toronto has Peruvian poncho styles in hand-knitted alpaca, with Peruvian motifs including' a band of llamas. On the pampas of Argentina and Uruguay, the poncho is an essential part of the clothing of the gaucho, the South American cowboy.. In the feminine take-over the poncho has become elegant for evening or casual for street wear or country.. Fringed and colorful, it is excellent with the jump suits that are the latest fashion push for both day and evening. However, many designers still prefer the traditional cape instead of the more casual poncho. Pauline Trigere invariably includes several in all her collections. Norell added little cape tops to coats and dresses. In Montreal Rob-ichaud included a knee-length navy, cape lined in red.
