Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 17, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta April 17. 1973 THE lETHBRIDOE HERALD 19 Aquarius editors create a stir with a lively student newspaper By GARRY ALLISON of The Herald The age of Aquarius has dawned at Hamilton Junior High School. That's Aquarius as in news- paper, not astrology. Under the hard word and di- reclon of editor Daryl Lan- gridge (and with the guiding hand of staff advisor Ruth the Hamilton newspaper has developed into one of the finest eight-page junior high school papers around. Daryl and his co-workers pro- duce the Aquarius on school time as part of an accredited option course. "We get together for two 90- niinute periods during each six- day Mrs. Daw said, "but many of the students spend a lot of their free time working on the paper as Editor Langridge often works on the paper during spare pe- riods as well as putting in time on Sundays and coming early for school. Kevin Hartley's responsibility fs the sports beat. Besides spending time covering the events of the school Kevin also puts in extra hours at home working on the Aquarius. Press freedom The students have the free- dom to write what they please. "We edit out any Mrs. Daw stated, "but leave them free to express their own opinions on any subject." .SOUTHERN ALBERTA .SAMPLER WATCH FOR Fairfield Appliance Ser- vices Ltd. Shag, Indoor- Outdoor Special in tomor- row's Lethbridge Herald. An interesting editorial ap- peared in the last issue com- menting that both teachers and students who fail to support school activities were "slobs." That created a bit of a s'ir and three teachers felt they were carrying "freedom of the press" a bit too far. "We strive to get the opin- ions, ideas and impressions of the Mrs. Daw re- lated. The students will choose own topics but will receive di- rection from Mrs. Daw when ideas are lacking. The paper is financed by the student body and the sale of advertising. The students pay 75 cents a year for the paper, which conies out every six to eight weeks. This totals absut to opsr- atc on. Advertising sells at a column inch. Extra money earned from the paper goes toward special items, like the camera which was recently purchased. Happenings Three years ago the Aquar- ius was called the Hamilton Happenings and was mimeo- graphed like a "typical junior high school paper." Today the students, type up the paper themselves, using a simple but ingenious system to justify the lines. The stories are cut out and pasted on a layout sheet in the arrangement decided on by the editor. Thsse finished pages, complete with photos and art- work, are then taken to a local print shop for the printing of the copies needed. Various "beats" are assigned to students. The art work and cartoons are the responsibility of Reno Trentini, Mike Gondarak and Doug Vogt.
