By NOIIKI'N REILANDKH cats The higgesl event thiit has hi-ppcnod at Catholic Central lately was the LCI Invitational Basketball Tournaniem. The TsuiT.ament started off with the: mighty Cougars downing the Koss Shcppard Thundevhirds. Following this, they eliminated the K. Coucars.

Most of these placements were made by Miss Galley when she was at the Chil- dren's Service Centre. "We believe thai every child has a right to a family of his Miss Galley said. "Prefer ah ly that family should have both mother and father, but if such a complete family is not available, then (or the child a single-parent family is much better than none." HARD TO PLACE In practice. I li e children adopted by single women are those generally hard to place they are not young enough, 'physically handi- capped in fume way and usually of mixed racial back- ground.
