Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 21, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 4th Section The Lethbridge Herald Lethbridge, Alberta, Wednesday, August 21, 1974 Pages 35-44 Emphasis should be on children Carnival for charity Fun for all was featured at a penny carnival held in Brad Martin's backyard just as summer holidays drew to an end. The carnival was. sparked by a television commer- cial, which lead 12-year-old Brad of 2218 18th Ave. S., to ask his mom's permission to hold the games-of-chance attraction. With the help of his friends and sisters, Brad assembled a miniature fair- ground, complete with 10 games and prizes for lucky competitors. Ac- cording to Brad, about 30 neighbor- hood children and adults paid a penny-a-game. All proceeds, which totalled will be donated to the Muscular Dystrophy fund. Shown clockwise, ball throw with Ron Vervoort; hammer bowl with Dennis Vervoort; and winners receiving prizes and refreshments. i Club corner notes} The Lethbridge Parents of Twins and Triplets Association will hold their first meeting for fall at p.m. Thursday at the home of Laureen Piekema, 1811 17th Ave. S.

The nine-year-old Edmontonian sketching Redstreak Mountain smiled appreciatively as I complimented him on his shading. He had skillfully darkened the crevices and red splatches fronting the rugged fortress and had softened its base with a scattering of Engleman's spruce and clusters of daisies. I was surprised such a young boy could capture so sensitively the mood of the battered citadel overlooking the Radium Hot Springs pool. He had sketched far more than the mere outline of a mountain. His was an in-depth study of the peak's many faces, missed by those who sped by. He felt the wind, rain and snow which had pounded it for centuries as well as its gentle shadows furnished by sun and clouds. And I realized again the worth of the national parks set aside for just such a purpose, where individuals, like Jim, could capture the moods of the wilderness the perpetual chattering of a brook, the grouse camouflaged by nature to blend into the environment, the gentle quivering of the aspen and the challenging summits piercing the skyline. Tourists came from all parts of the continent to see what the young lad saw and hear what he heard. They stroll through mountain underbrush following a morning rain, watch a chipmunk scurry to its home and kneel to drink from a transparent stream. Tnese outdoor buffs represent every race and status. Camped next to us were three East Indian families, an executive and his family from Long Island; an attorney and his wife from Palo Alto; a major and his family from St. Catherines, Ont.; a music consultant from Medicine Hat and the Strukoffs Doukhobor couple from Pelly, Sask. They had camped 20 years with their five children, all the way from Alaska to Yosemite. Recognized in Pelly as "outdoor nuts" they enjoyed, summer gypsying even when Walter Strukoff's income didn't allow for such luxuries but wife Margaret insisted their children should enjoy the experience camping offered. "We would pack our tent and supplies and take she explained. It was always a "learning vacation" sure to alleviate the responsibilities, hurts and even the discrimination experienced by this family in their attempt to integrate intc rural Canadian life. But somehow all of their anxieties vanished the minute they rounded the first curve. Ahead was the mountain wilderness where everyone was equal and there were no minority groups. There were no box seats in nature's arena. Year-end school play 'garbage9 CALGARY (CP) The school play, normally the cli- max of a year-long drama class, is usually says the president of the Cana- dian Child and Youth Drama Association. "Too much emphasis is usu- ally put on the school produc- tion and not enough on devel- oping the said Peter Me Whir in an interview. "We're interested in child development, not in making little actors." "Even when a production comes off well, it's not neces- sarily the best thing for the kids involved. I've seen some fantastic Grade 1 performances but you could almost see the teacher back there, pulling the strings. The kids onstage were being manipulated just like pup- pets, with very little room for Herald Family self-expression." Traditional drama education can do a great deal of harm to children, he said. "A child can have his ideas crushed by an insensitive leader who superimposes his ideas as being better than those of the child. The potential for damage here is great, because we're dealing very much with the emotional side of children." The CCYDA is promoting techniques such as improvisa- tion and "free movement" to emphasize the individual imagination. "A creative drama class will probably be the first situation a child ever experiences where he cannot do anything wrong. At the end of the class, he will be pleased to think he's done everything 'right' and in the meantime he has been encouraged to think independently and creatively." An example is the traditional classroom exercise of imitating an elephant. If you give children this ex- ercise, almost everyone will clasp his hands together, dangle them in front of him like a trunk and lumber around the classroom. "This is because the teacher has shown be an elephant like of just suggesting the idea of being an elephant. "As far as I'm concerned, ii there are 30 kids in the class- room, there are 30 'right' ways of being an elephant. One could be an angry elephant, another an elephant with a lopsided head, another a pink elephant, another a sexy why not'' Part of Mr. McWhir's job as CCYDA president is to tour classrooms, demonstrating techniques that teachers can use.
