(AP) Tommy guns, cowboy holsters, plastic soldiers and other war toys were banned from many store shelves in the United States during the Vietnam war era but are hot- selling items this Christmas.

For 2Vi hours, 10 black stu- dents and 10 white students sat in a room in Hyde Park High School and called each other every ugly name they knew. Without realizing it, these antagonists in one of Boston's most radically violent schools had already reached three agreements: to sit down in one room together; vent their anger at each other; do it be- fore an impartial mediator named William Lincoln. Their discussions continued for seven weeks. A Member of the National Centre for Dispute Settle- ment, Lincoln had been asked by the Boston school depart- ment to help out after battles between white and black stu- dents in the newly-deseg- regated school had brought patrols of uniformed police into the corridors. Classes had been disrupted, students were milling about and separate groups of white and black students were hold- ing shouting sessions in sepa- rate rooms. Lincoln decided the two groups should have a con- frontation. Here's how he says he got the two sides shouting at, then working with each other: One day Lincoln waited out- side the auditorium where white students, closing the door to any adults, were gath- ered The leader of the white group came out to go to the bathroom and Lincoln stopped him. "I asked him: 'If you elected 10 of your own people to negotiate with the blacks, what do you think would hap- Lincoln said "He said: 'That's a terrific idea.' And I said, 'What idea? I just asked you a question.' "Then after a while a black came down the corridor, and I said- 'Hey man, they just elected 10 guys to negotiate with you He ran down the corridor to tell his people.'" The heated negotiating ses- sion was the result. "An inexperienced mediator would have tried to stifle that ventilation process, and he Lincoln said of the session. "It's got to come out. It's irrational, but that's not im- portant. It's coming from the gut, and that's much more im- portant than what's coming from the brain. "That's when they began to discover across racial lines that they were saying the Stamp design project underway The Canada Post Office has organized an imaginative 1975 Christmas stamp design pro- ject directed to Canadian children under the age of 13. The project got underway Dec. 2 and children are to sub- mit their personally executed designs anytime until Feb. 14. Selection will be made initial- ly on a regional basis and sub- sequently at the national level. Children from coast to coast are invited to contribute their own drawings or painting, ex- pressing the theme, "What Christmas means to me." These will be used to produce several distinctive Christmas stamp designs reflecting the essence of the Christmas spirit and the freshness and variety of young minds. The Canada Post Office issues special stamps each year to mark the Christmas season and normally these are designed by professional ar- tists. To assist with the screening of designs, the Canada Post Office has enlisted the aid of regional panels, including directors of art galleries, ar- tists, art educators and members of the Advisory Committee on stamp design. When the provincial jurying has been completed, selec- tions on the national level will be made by the department's advisory committee. Entries should be mailed to: "The Edmonton Art Gallery, 2 Sir Winston Churchill Square, Edmonton, Alta. T5J 2C1. Herald- Youth same things, and to discover that they had a hell of a lot in common. They had power in common, fear in common, concern in common, uncon- trollable elements in com- mon, peer influence in com- mon. "And the real common de- nominator was that they were students subject to a law that they didn't agree with but that they couldn't change. What they could change were some of the conditions at the school that they would have to live with." The common problem these black and white teen-agers had to contend with was a federal court order calling for desegration of the city's schools. In a year, Hyde Park School went from about 20 per cent black to 50 per cent black, and it hasn't been working. The sounds of violence have echoed through the classrooms, the corridors, the cafeteria. The police patrols have become permanent. For the past seven weeks, Lincoln has been meeting with the elected "bi-racial com- mittee" in an effort to help change the atmosphere from one of confrontation to one of communication. "It's not always the sophis- ticated diplomacy Henry Kis- singer said Lincoln of his task. "In some ways it's much harder. There can be no signed treaties in the schools. You develop handshakes, ver- bal agreements." But he says the students on Hyde Park's bi-racial com- mittee have stopped shouting at each other and started try- ing to solve their problems. LEISTER'S MUSIC LTD. Campus Corner By RHONDA RUSTON Winston Churchill High School Winston Churchill High School is an "alternative school." Its structure was approved by the board of education in March, 1973. Its features are individualized progress, close inter action with adult models high standards of achievement, emphasis on responsibility and self discipline. The program was planned carefully over a period of three years. Last spring, a series of meetings, using audio visual aids, were held to explain and discuss the program. Parents and students were encouraged to consider whether the program was right for them. During the fall semester, minor changes were made to meet the needs of students, but essentially the program is operating as planned. However, a number of problems have arisen. First, everyone is readjusting as they learn This applies to students, parents and staff. Complicating this is the fact that all students began different courses at the same time so a great deal of pressure was placed on students and staff in the first quarter. Patience is going to result in eventual success Many will not finish all their courses by Christmas, but it was not expected that they would. Many will finish early in January and, at the same time, add courses day by day in the next semester. Many students are progressing exceptionally well. Some were finished courses by the end of November and began new courses. These students include some who were previously con- sidered "failures" in other schools. With patience and co operation WCHS will become the model school of the future. WCHS also has an exceptionally well-developed co- curricular program. The students' council and staff have sur- veyed the student body and have developed a number of teams, clubs and social activities that provide students with oppor- tunities. Each activity is supervised by a staff member and co or- dinated by the students' council Some activities included are badminton, chess, speech and debate, basketball, volleyball, craft club, photography, officials association and travel club. A new club in the city is the tri-school ski club Students from CCHS, WCHS and LCI have planned five ski trips to Fer- nie, plus a final wind up trip in April. A small membership fee entitles members to reduced rates on tows and rentals. Seventy four students recently inaugurated the club with its first trip to Snow Valley. Students are still welcome to join the club and should see their school ski club president Jim Mars, CCHS; Dee Dee Hill, LCI, Jim Richards, WCHS This is one of the few activities that sees the three schools working together rather than against each other. It is this par- ticipation which should be encouraged between the schools and students.
