Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 3, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID - Friday, December 3, 1971 Girls rate F with the hoys to gain an A in sociology NEW YORK - Most girls wonder what it would be like to ask a boy for a date; two girls who did just that 20 times report that it is far from an ideal situation. The girls, Linda Dankman, 18, and Candace Cooley, 19, recall in the December issue of a teen magazine that their role-reversals were done for a sociology class, which called for independent study in original topics. After doing research on matters such as courtship behavior and body language, they decided to carry out the classic date in which "the guy asks the girl out and makes all the necessary arrangements." For their first date, the girls picked two boys who happened to be standing in the hall and asked them if they would like to go to a movie. The boys, after some hesitation, accepted. As the girls recall that date: "We said we'd pick them up at 6:30 p.m. but were 15 minutes late because the car we borrowed wouldn't start . . . After we left their room, it was awkward because we walked behind them . . . They seemed confused when Oandy unlocked the car door, pushed the front seat forward and directed Linda's date to climb in. . . . "We arrived at the movie and directed them to our seats where, after a few minutes, we put our arms around them. They didn't react at all to this, keeping their arms folded and .-J LEISTER'S MUSIC LTD. Campus Corner PAT SCHANDOR WCHS "Gone with the wind." I think this expression sums up the passing of this semester rather well. Contrary to popular belief, there isn't much time left in the semester and those departmental exams loom larger by the day. You might as well discard your learning skills and trust your memorization skills to get you through. You might forget everything you've memorized as soon as the exam is finished but at least the people in the "education??" department in Edmonton will be satisfied. Surprised by my attitude towards the exams? Well, don't be. My opinion is shared by the majority of Churchill students who will be forced to write them along with all the other Grade 12 matriculation students in Lethbridge. Good luck to you all. You're probably going to need it (myself included).  * � The volleyball season ended on Nov. 27 for both the Griffins and Bulldogs. Both teams were beaten out in their quest for the South West Zone Championships. Basketball will be the dominant sports for the next several months. AH three Churchill teams, the Griffins, Mastiffs and Bulldogs will compete in the South West zone with their major objective being the Provincial Championships which are held in March. The teams are raring to go and hope for some good competition. The Griffins open their sea- son tonight at Churchill against W. R. Myers from Taber while both boys teams will travel to Taber to play against the Myers boys' teams. Why not take in one of the games? They should provide lots of excitement. * � Sunday afternoon and nothing to do? Why not take in the show "The Party" at the Paramount Theatre on Dec. 5. Proceeds will go to a very worthwhile cause, the 15-25 age golf course. How about it? Wednesday night, Dec. 8, is going to be a fun filled evening. The Winston Churchill students and teachers are putting on Variety Night. This year, we are holding this event at our school and a Coffee House is planned. The Graduation Tea has been re-scheduled to Dec. 19. The public is cordially invited to attend this tea which will feature entertainment and a bake sale. Hope to see you all there. * * * December brings with it thoughts of Christmas. It is the time of year when, for a few days, the hectic pace of life seems to slow down. It is a time when we can re-examine our values and ask ourselves what everything really means. I hope the spirit of Christmas will bring to you peace and inner contentment. Merrv Christmas!! * *  (The views volcefl In the above colnmn do not necessarily concnr with either those of The Herald or Leister's, but are a reflection of the student's opinion.)

"After the movie we suggested going for a short swim . . . At the pool we dived in first and began swimming laps to show them our aquatic abilities. They plunged in and caught us off guard by making amorous advances. But we swam a little faster and kept the situation in our control. Later, when we tried to hold their hands, they didn't resist but didn't respond either . . . we thanked them, walked them to their door and kissed them good night. They seemed startled and confused at this and obviously couldn't wait to get inside. Their parting was a hasty 'see you around.' We didn't." That was exactly the result of all the "reverse" dates. None of the boys ever called back. But as the girls point out, "if we were to proceed strictly according to the model we bad adopted, it was our job to call them." What conclusion did the girls reach? "That a girl can be aggressive to a point, but carrying it too far makes a guy uncomfortable and often surly. Most young men have a strong sense of their masculine role and lapse into confusion and even anger when robbed of its rituals. We know now that if we want to meet a boy, we can ask him out. But we also know that the success of the date depends on letting him make some of the decisions and do some of the managing." In its own way, the experiment was a complete success. The project rated an A in the sociology course. REPTILE SPECIES There are 60 species of rep-tiies in Canada. Youth and resource people discuss drug crisis centre By RUDY HAUGENEDER Staff Writer Illegal drug use among Lethbridge youth is prevalent, say city youths. While no actual figures are available to show the percentage of youths that experiment with drags on a frequent or periodic basis, the consensus seems to be that it Is high. The problem behind drug usage among city youths is not the lack of things to do, but the lack of creative p r o j e cts through which youth can channel its energies. At a youth meeting between city young people and a handful of resource people at the Central drop-in centre on Tuesday, the establishment of a drag crisis centre or similarly patterned facility was discussed The young people, known as The People, will continue to hold meetings with resource personnel experienced in such problems until a cone rete course of action is decided upon. Discussed at the exploratory meeting attended by shout 20 youths - a number which occasionally swelled to nearly 30 -were programs such as arts and crafts, drama and other creative activities which could counteract possible drug usage. Everyone attending the meeting was asked to express opinions on drug prevention programs and how to combat the "bad trips" experienced by those either using drugs or suffering from alcoholic or bad emotional experiences. The possibility of holding drug seminars to outline the dangers of drags, the development of a series of centres where youths could seek assistance when on bad trips, or a central drug crisis facility, came under discussion. The young people .said a crisis centre should not just be a centre to help people suffering bad drug trips but also those with other problems. It was pointed out that, if a centre were developed, the individuals working in a consultative capacity must know bow to cope with the problems presented to them. Not everyone Is competent to handle the various situations these voulnteers would encounter. Knowl e d g a b 1 e resource people are required to occupy the crisis centre posts - committed people, they were told. Individual situations handled in the wrong way, yet with good intentions, could result in a worse experience for the person requiring help than before aid was sought, it was stated The youths suggested that city hall officials were not prepared to consider the financial support'of additional youth programs unless a united and cohesive effort were planned and presented to support the cause. The possibility of doing a complete study which would reveal the actual need for both preventive programs and a crisis centre also came under discussion. A further meeting to attract more youths and develop a solid organization was set for the drop - in centre at 2:30 p.m. Sunday. Spectacular Angela Davis star of courtroom drama By MURRAY OLDERMAN SAN RAFAEL, Calif. (NEA) - It's the best show in town. And it's playing Palo Alto next, or San Jose. For Angela Yvonne Davis, avowed Communist and accused conspirator to murder and kidnap, the scales of justice teeter, oh, so slowly. But in the process she remains the inimitable star of the courtroom drama that's so boring most of the reporters carry novels to keep them occupied during the sluggish pretrial hearings that have dragged this case on for months. And possibly into next year. It has already cost more than three-quarters of a million dollars without getting to the jury selection stage. Indicated as an accomplice to the Marin courthouse shoot-out in August of 1970, Angela has been in jail here since Dec. 22, 1970. She is, in court, something to see. She is not a pretty woman. Her face is too equin-al and there is a gap in her teeth. But she is definitely striking. Tall, good legs that are in maximum display with a short-skirted dress. A light, almost olive cast to her skin, the legacy of her "accursed" white grandfather. A mane of brownish more than black hair that tails off to frizziness at the edges reduces her face, with its high cheekbones and flaring nostrils, to amulet size. Her chief defense lawyer, Howard Moore Jr., sits to her left, and on her right side there's a battery of three woman - two of them lawyers, one white and one black, and the third a law clerk, darker and taller than Angela herself. Moore can put people to sleep with his droning rhetoric, disturbed only by the rasping sounds of sketch artists at work in the press gallery. Still, the people come to see Angela, though the best is yet to come since she hasn't spoken out. They are the young with the faded, patched blue jeans and long-stranded hair parted in the middle; they are the interested blacks in Afros; they are retired middle-aged couples with nothing else to do. The security precautions reflect the tension of the times. Empty your pockets. Everything. And deposit them in a plastic receptacle, examined by a man from the sheriff's office. Then, in the open corridor, walk through a wired metal detector shaped like a doorway. A woman wearing boots with metal eyelets has to take them off to pass security. They made the bell ring. Pick up your wallet and cash and change and comb and watch. And into the courtroom. Angela is brought in from a back entrance. Unfailingly she raises her left arm, bent at the elbow in a self-conscious black power greeting to a "brother' or "sister" in the spectators' gallery. Once seated, she slouches in her chair. Sometimes she wears glasses, with large round chromium rims; sometimes she takes them off. When Moore reads from documents, she'll perk up and look over his right arm with interest. Newspaper reporters have tried to visit Angela. None has been granted permis s i o n. So until such time as she speaks out from a witness box, she is the mute star of this show.
