But exams aren't all that bad are they, particularly when followed by a week nf Iwlidays aftenvards? *  * This time last year I was on my way to Winnipeg for Christ-mias with my Mother and Dad, sister Nancy, our two German Shepherds, Mizpah and Chelsea and a trunk loaded down with Christmas gifts to take to my brothers in our former home-town. Believe me folks, travel may be great, but don't try to get across the prairies in the middle of winter unless you're assiffed of a ride in a comfortable, well-heated car or train or plane. As it was, oui-oar wasn't all that old, but it had gone many miles, and for some mysterious reason, on the very morning we were to leave, the heater declined to work, then after we had been on the road for a few miles the motor, started making weird noL )s! It was thirty below, with a howling wind which blew the snow aci-oss the highway so that visibility was almost nil. However we decided we wouldn't turn back so pressed on, freezing cold and praying the car wouldn't give up the ghost on a stretch of prairie miles from nowhere. Well our prayers wei'e answered - partly. At the Hat the car coughed and conked out about three blocks from a service station. We were hauled in by a tow-truck where some-thing-or-other was done to the engine. After a delay of an hour and vAth the assiu-ances of the mechanics that everything was now okay, we proceeded on our journey. But just before Swift Current, the car started coughing again and passed a.way just as I" we rolled up to another service station. We decided not to push our luck that day. Dad put the car in the garage for further servicing and we stayed overnight there. Anr* a good thing too - the radio advised that with the wind-chill, the temperature was 58 below! Next day, somewhat appi-e-hensively, (but again with the assurances of the mechanics) we got undei-way once more. Tliis time we made it to Re-gina, where the car started back-firing. We should have stayed right there, but we didn't. Dad kept going, and we kept praying. But about thirty miles east of Regina, at a little place called Indian Head, (and I do mean little, pop 1,000 and I could be over-estimating) we coasted up to yet another garage and that was it. The car just seemed to say, "sorry folks, end of the line." Apparently what was required was a new whatcbamacallit which the town didn't have, so we debated what to do. Finally Dad returned to Regina, rented another car, and after a delay of several hoiu^ we got on our way to Winnipeg once again. Changing dogs, gifts, ctothing and stuff from one car to the other we nearly froze - and it made us all wonder how pio-neei-s ever survived crossing the pra.iries in winter in a covered wagon. You can be sure that was one Christmas we will all remember! We learned our lesson, this year we're staying in Letbbridge. V * * I'd like now to wish Mr. Sauer and all the teachers and students of LCI a Meny Christmas and a Happy New Year. P.S. And good luck to all, on your exams.  *  (The views voiced in the above column do not necessarily concur with either those of The Herald or Lei> ster's, bnt are a reflection of the student's opinion.) TOP TWELVE 45 R.P.^A. are young, a ion. began her learning to fly program because of an interest and a desire to be able to fly a plane. And with her sights set on getting her license in six weeks time, she has plans of always flying for the sheer enjoyment of it. Gaye, who began her lessons a year ago, plans to have her pilot's license by February.

"But the first solo is .something," said Gaye, ".you don't even notice tliat the instructor* isn't with you as you go around, then the conti-ol tower says something like 'congratulations on your first solo' and you look over at the other seat, find it really is empty and you did it." ' Marion agreed and added i that on her solo which happen-! ed just a few days ago, she re-' turned the conti-oller's greeting with a gale of laughtei-. "It's quite a thrill when you I reaUze you have done that solo," said Marion, "but I can still remember the day I went home in tears after a frustrating flight lesson.'" "Flying lakes a lot out of you,' said Gaye, "you have to concentrate so hard, that by the end of an hour you can hardly stand any more. But after you can fly well, it becomes relaxing and a pleasure to fly." Flying may be just the thing for Marion and G-aye, but for others, it's not their idea of a good time. As Marion put it, "My friends all think I'm crazy." UP, UP, AND AWAY! - Marlon Doyle, seated, and Gaye Williams, are learning to fly, and love every minute of it.

(CP) -Yvonne Bedard says she plans to fix up her house on the Six Nations reserve and possibly take in foster children now that a decision by the Supreme Court of Ontario has allowed her to remain on the reserve. She was commenting today on the decision by the court Wednesday that a section of the Indian Act disqualifying a woman from membership in an Indian band if she man-ies a white man is in conflict witli the Canadian Bill of Rights. Mr. Justice J. H. Osier made the judgment in connection with an action by Mrs. Bedard who had asked the couii. to restraiii the Six Nations band council from removing her name from the band list and evicting her from the reserve. Mrs. Bedard, 33, was bom on the reserve but left it in 1964 to marry a white man. She separated from her husband a year ago and retunied to the reserve with her two childen. Tlie band council ordered her to leave the reserve and began eviction proceedings when she refused to do so. Mrs. Bedard said today she feels the Indian act is immoral. "It pushes Indian women to living common law with white men they would otherwise marry." She added: "I felt I was being discriminated against by my own people. That's what really hurt."
