Accent on Youth Hamilton Students active in ping-pong club By KEVIN HARTLEY Sports at Hamilton are very good. The sport that came first in 1972-73 was football. The Stampeders played very well but were on the short end of their games. Harvie LaBuhne was chosen as Rookie of the Year. Harvie Pocza showed some fine punt- ing and kicking and went to Winnipeg in the championships for kicking. He unfortunately lost out. Hamilton dominated volley- ball by winning the Grade 8 and 9 boys' and girls' pennants. The boys' basketball team, the Hornets, lost to Catholic Central in the championship se- ries by scores of 40-21 and 32- Catholic Central Trip planned By DEBBIE MeKENNA A group of 20 Spedapso mem- bers and two supervisors will be g o i n g to California at the end of June. While in California, they will be hosted by -an American youth group. This is an educa- tional trip as well as an expe- rience in community living. The expenses for the trip will be paid for with funds from group projects as well as from each member. Activities in California may include camp-outs, tours, cook- outs and a visit to Disneyland. 22. The Hornets came first in their division with a 5-1 win loss record. The girls' team, the Halos lost to Paterson in the sem finals by scores of 32-27 and 3 30. The Halos finished last in their division with a 0-6 win loss record. They won tw games in the tournament bu were unlucky during the sea son. Hamilton took every badmin ton pennant in the tournamen recently held at LCI. Hamil ton's total was 316 points Paterson 124, Wilson 93 ani Allan Watson 65. Soccer is now underway am both teams are looking good The Juniors have won all their games so far in the season. Four of Hamilton's club deal with sports. The ches club, under the supervision o Ron Murphy, has some stu dents following in Bobby Fisch er's footsteps. Jack Adamson's rifle club has quite a few students who hav< learned to handle a gun very well. The ski club travelled down to Whitefish, Montana, for some good skiing under Dean Lawlor's supervision. The ping-pong club, which was started by a Grade 8 stu dent has attracted a lot of stu dents. Scott Foofcs never real- ized that the participation in this club would be so good. The students are very thank ful for these clubs and activi- ties. With track and field com- ing up, you can see it has been a very busy year at Hamilton. LEISTER'S MUSIC LTD. Campus Corner By ALICE SNYDER CATHOLIC CENTRAL The foremost topic of discus- sion among the senior high stu- dents these past few weeks is, of course, the upcoming Grade 12 graduation. Endeavoring to keep up with the traditional ceremonies of previous years, we are com- mencing with a graduation mass to be held in the morning of May 11 at SL Patrick's Church. Following the mass, all grad- uates will attend a luncheon in St. Patrick's Church Hall. The formal exercises which are by invitation only, will take place in the Yates Memorial Centre, May J2, followad by the dance at St. Francis High School gymnasium. The Grade 11 decorating com- mittee, under the watchful eye of Bob Pisko, has done a suc- cessful job of concealing any dues which might reveal the theme of this yesr's graduation. Catholic Central is very proud that some of its "hidden talent" has been exposed in the 1973 Kiwanis Music Festival. Congratulations are extended to our accomplished musicians, Margaret Horvath and Ed Gnandt hi gaining recognition in their respective fields of music. Margaret achieved the high- est mark in this year's festival while Ed won the Banff Bursary as well as the prize for the most musical student in the festival. The CCH drama dub, under the direction of Gloria Benz, is entering two plays entitled The Giant's Stair and Afterwards, in the senior high school drama festival. The festival is to be held at the end of the month. A group of CCH enthusiasts, led by Lillian Donnelly, have descended upon Paris for the Easter Holidays. I'm sure that all the unfortunate ones who remained behind will be antici- pating the return of suitcases of souvenirs. 1 hope that everyone has an enjoyable, "restful" Easter holiday! Ttiumfay, April 26, 1973 THI lETHBRlDGE HERAID Off to the Coast These Grade 12 students, members of Winston Churchill's See B.C. Club, left Good Friday for their 10-day excursion from Lethbridge to Victoria. Their round trip will cov- er more than 1600 miles. The return trip will include stops at Vernon and Banff. Wolf hunter is not proud PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. (CP) Government hunter Milt Warren claims a world wolf record he'd rather not have. "I've killed more wolves in my time than anyone else in the says the 51-year- old hunter who has served for 22 years in the predator con- trol branch of the British Col- umbia Wildlife Service.

They will be competing for a Sun Life of Canada Scholar- ship of action, due in part, he be- lieves, to a bad wolf image created by folklore and nurs- ery stories. "If any story should have been banned, it's Little Red Riding Hood." Hunter Warren's comment came in an interview follow- ing a trip into the Burns Lake area "of north-central B.C., where ranchers have been complaining that large wolf packs are wiping out game and threatening cattle herds. Among the ranchers are Myles and Hugh Shelford, brothers of a former B.C. ag- riculture minister, Cyril Shel- ford, who recently called on the government to launch an all-out poison war on the wolves. FEAR FOR CATTLE The Shelfords say the wolves have wiped out deer herds in the area and are en- dangering moose. They say they are also concerned about what the wolves may do to more than 900 head of cattle they expect to turn loose on the range this spring and summer. The ranchers contend the only real solution to the wolf problem is to revive poison control methods that were used 20 years ago to cut down wolf packs. Mr. Warren says he knows all about those years. "I killed by poison more than 600 wolves during 1953. 1954 and he said. "I hate to think how many I killed in the 22 years I've been with the department" He said be knows more about wolves now than he did then and now tends to be on From LCI Student representative goes to studies forum By KATHY MacINNES A Lelhbridge Collegiate In- stitute student has been select- ed to represent the city's pub- lic school system at the forth- coming Canadian Studies Fo- rum in Calgary.

He turned down ranchers' requests that he poison-bait the range area, "I refused because I didn't think it necessary to bait the area at this he said. He also rejected ranchers arguments that -wolves are to blame for the scarcity of game. "Its the severe weather conditions of the last two or three winters before this one that are responsible for most of the reduced number of game said the pre- dator hunter, whose territory covers virtually the entire northern B.C. area from Prince George to the Yukon boundary. MOOSE INCREASING "This winter has been a comparatively good one for deer and moose. We took a moose count in January and it shows the moose are making a comeback." He admitted there is BO shortage of wolves in northern B.C. "There are about 150 in sev- eral packs running on and around Lake Williston and an- other 100 or more in the Ba- bine Lake district." Lake Williston is formed by the b a c k e dI -u p waters of Peace River Hydroelectric de- velopment i n northeastern B.C. Warren said there are no cattle ranches anywhere near the two areas, which at- tract large numbers of hunt- ers from the lower B.C. main- land and from the United States trying to bag trophy "There is considerable pub- lic opinion against this kind of said Mr. Warren. 'Tin sure this is the last year it wiil be allowed. "Times have changed. A lot of us have learned to kuow and respect the wolf. And it's obvious people don't want him wiped out just because he's there. He's part of our envi- ronineirt."

Winston Churchill Recreation is popular By BRENDA KOSAKA When one reflects back on school days, the topic of phys- ical education seems to pop up. How one disliked track and field, bow badminton was your sport, and how physical education uniforms became "unique" when they weren't washed for two weeks are some of the topics often brought up. At WCHS the girls are very lacky to have an instructor like Anita Grant who really enjoys teaching the class. The re- lationship between teacher and student is disciplined, yet in a relaxed atmosphere. There are two routes a stu- dent can take. For the neces- sary two credits one can enrol in the recreational intramural class. II is composed of a two and a half hour class, once a week. The other route is a five cred- it course and involves the stu- dent partaking in both theory and practical classes. The ba- sic skills from Grade 9 are em- phasized but a higher degree of performance is expected. These alternate routes al- most eliminate the problem of inexcusable absences. Those who really like physical educa- tion take the five credit course. The physical education 20 Opportunities is now under OTTAWA (CP) A flexible] year round employment pro- gram combining Opportunities for Youth (OFY) and the Local Initiatives Program (L.I.P.) may be recommended by the government this summer, State Secretary Hugh Faulkner said Tuesday. Discussions on such a cnm- bined "opportunities-for-people" program have just begun, he told the Commons broadcasting committee during discussion of his department's spending esti- mates. This step is in line with others under consideration by the gov- ernment in an effort to overhaul its current myriad social assist- ance and employment pro- grams. A meeting of federal and pro- vincial welfare ministers later this month was expected to deal with suggestions for changes in programs ranging from family allowances and pension to wel- fare. Mr. Faulkner said the lion OFY program has never been set out in legislation be- cause it was felt that the tern- for people discussion porary student employment pro. gram should remain flexible. EASIER TO ADAPT It was easier to adapt the program if legislative amend- ments were not required. In reply to questions by a number of MPs, he said that those running the program had made a number of efforts to improve the consultative pro- gress behind the awarding of grants. About projects, employing about people, are expected to be funded by OFY this summer. Mark Rose (NDP Fraser Valley West) asked If the gov- ernment was attempting to co- opt MPs by asking them for opinions on OFY applications and 30 classes are directly aim- ed at individual and dual ac- tivities. There has been an in- creased enrolment in these two classes. Mrs. Grant feels that people are realizing the importance of keeping fit. Also, people seem to have more leisure time and like to exercise. In the girls' physical educa- tion 30 class, some of the ac- tivities encountered are canoe- ing, modelling, curling, Swedish gymnastics, first aid, golfing, swimming and bowling. There are no special fees to be paid by the students. Outdoor education is one of the most challenging activities. This year's survival class is going into the Westcastle wild- erness, May 20 to May 23. Their motto is you must trap or catch two or etarvel Davy Crockett, move over. Now that Easter holidays an upon us, personal essays, social term papers and an assortment of tests are in. Members of the See B.C. dub were getting excited about their trip to the coast, but not about leaving Lethbridge at 6 a.m. Good Friday. Rolls of white paper are be- ing scrutinized from the art room for campaign posters for the upcoming students' council election. The Young Voyageurs been chosen. They are Pat San- der, Carolyn Sterenberg, Cheryl Wince, Gerry Hart, Randy Rae, and Jim Richards. Happy holidays from Winston Churchill!
