Nova Scotia operates school buses which transport students more than a half-billion miles each year- more passenger travel miles than Air Canada, he said School buses have been op- erating in Nova Scotia on an MD patients leave for Vancouver HAMILTON (CP) Three young muscular dystrophy (M D) patients left here last week on a month-long camping trip to Van- couver and back. For Jim Conway, 21, Howie Barton, 21 and David Bauer, 19, the trip is the culmination of a dream which started two years ago and which thev refused to believe was as un- realistic as they were otten told The three men live together in the Chedoke Continuing Care Centre They all suffer from MD a disease that gradually makes the muscles useless Accompanying them are Howie's father Wilfred Barton. 54, Jim Watson 44 and Bill Trusz. 22 Mr Watson and Mr Trusz are former orderlies with experience in handling MD patients. They will travel in a 25-toot mobile home leased by the Rotary dub. which donated 600 tor the trip as well The federal government donated David Bauer, the most seriously afflicted of the three, almost cancelled out at the last minute when he saw the narrow door of the mobile home Because of his back weakness, he cannot be lifted out of his wheelchair But a last-minute check showed the wheelchair would fit through the door organized basis since 1940, but none has ever been involved in a fatal accident Injuries have been few and seldom serious, he added Last vear the only reported in- jury involved a broken tooth during a quick stop but the child didn't miss any school because of it Reasons for the service record were the continuing ef- fort of education officials to upgrade the service and to adopt stringent safety regu- lations J E Mclnnis. supervisor of pupil transportation, said the province is currently oper- ating a defensive driving course for all bus drivers Medical checkups every three years and annual eye exam- inations are required The buses travel at a max- imum of 45 miles an hour and passengers are prohibited from standing while the buses are moving A recent in- novation was the hiring of ad- ditional personnel to aid chil- dren crossing roads after they get oft the bus Scotia school buses are not equipped with seat belts It's just too expensive to hire the extra supervisory personnel that would be needed. Mr Mclnnis said Children would need the su- pervision of "airline-like stewardesses" to ensure they would make use of the belts and to help them escape in event of emergencv Enjoying free time Cadets John Gedrasik of Lethbridge and Patrick Magee of Kenora, S Ont., play darts.

Darla said Kevin wanted to get his name in the record books so he spent 180 hours printing the mammoth letter bv hand on the streamers The letter is wound on a sil- ver reel much like a roll of movie film Darla said she and Kevin had been writing "goofy letters to each other since he went back home last summer "When he gets his mind to something, he'll do it The letter, marked TOP SE- CRET and Restricted to the Eves of Darla LeGrow. arriv- ed complete with instructions on how to read it Darla figured the letter takes about 10 hours to read It cost Kevin in postage to send by first-class mail.

Campus Corner PUT OUT TO GRASS PARIS (Reuter) The legendary "belly of the now-dismantled Les Ha lies meat and vegetable market, will be turned into a city park. President Valery Giscard d'Estamg decided Tuesday The late president Pompidou had authorized a huge business block for the market site By ANNA LEE BOULTON Kate Andrews High School, Coaldale One of the important questions facing all students entering high school is what kinds of courses and programs should you enrol in II you feel you can "hack it, I suggest take a senior matriculation program The main reason for taking this program is that it permits you to have a greater choice of fields to go into after leaving high school II you complete a matriculation program with the right courses, you can go on to university, technical school college nursing, medical laboratory technology well, almost any career or field that you like Without a senior matriculation standing you're limited to a smaller number of opportunities So. it makes sense to take a senior matriculation program and enlarge the vast number of career possibilities which are open to you Girls would be wise to include as many business education courses in their high school program as thev can There is a con- tinuing demand for girls with a business education background and courses such as typing, clerical practice, accounting and business machines help to prepare students for immediate employment either during the summer months or right after graduating The business education girls from Kate Andrews are really in demand and have had no problems finding work after graduating. I'm one of those who believes strongly in the educational value of travel The value of a one or two week visit to another part of Canada or Europe is much greater than hundreds of hours spent in the classroom. There is just no comparison You can read all you want about another country or culture but it just doesn't have the impact of being there A book just can't convey the feeling that comes from seeing Pans from the breathtaking heights of the Eiffel Tower, the frustration of try- ing to talk to a Parisian in your limited vocabulary, or the grandeur of walking down the Champs Elysees or through the Louvre All high school students should have the opportunity to travel to supplement and widen their educational background Certain programs such as the Young Voyageurs. sponsored by the provincial and federal governments, are free Other programs such as those sponsored by the Canadian Heritage Society or the Trans-Canada Alliance charge a fee ranging from to depending upon the duration of the program and distance travelled Other programs are undertaken by in- dividual teachers for which a minimal fee is charged This year Kate Andrews students participated in four different travel programs one to Pans, France, another to Frankfurt, Germany, another to Twillmgate, Nfld and one to Expo 74 in Spokane, Wash Weekly ceremonial parade Cadets Ron Van Ryn of Lethbridge, right, and Doug Shupe of Dryden, Ont., meet B.C.'s Lt.-Gov.
