Homework at the last minute? It may appear these Grade 7 students at Hamilton Junior High School are hurrying to get their assignment done before heading into class. But, actually, they are junior journalists writing articles for the students' newspaper. Because the newspaper office is filled with other students pasting up the paper, the writers resort to work- ing on the stairs. Students include from left, Bill Montgomery, Kevin Hooper, Gary Stetar, Mark Doram, Barbara Fultz and Melanie Fritzler.

UNTIL CHRISTMAS! 317 7th Street South Phone 327-5431 TORONTO (CP) Dr. Henry Brent, director of the Hospital for Sick Children's contact lens clinic, said he believes four-year-old Janine Willie of Toronto is the only living person born with a cataract who has developed vision in the affected eye as good as in her normal eye. Dr. Brent credits Janine's mother with bringing about the achievement. She kept a patch over the girl's good eye forcing her to use her poor one. Dr. Brent said when the family moved to Toronto Janine was too young to have have had her vision tested. When he tested her vision he found that the normal eye had- become "a bit lazy." The child had the cataract removed when she was six Half Price! j LADIES TEENS TURTLENECK PULLOVERS Good quality, 100% Acrylic.

Fields Tips for young treasurers TORONTO (CP) Everything the young treasurer of a youth club needs to know about the handling of his fellow members' money is contained in a new booklet put out by bankers. The booklet from the Canadian Bankers' Association, Banking for Your Club, is design- ed to familiarize the young reader with the range of financial ser- vices offered by the chartered banks. It describes the types of accounts available, how to invest the club's money, how to write cheques and how to set up a simple form of ledger. "For your club, as indeed for you per- sonally, a banking connection is very im- portant. Choose yours carefully and then find out all the ways it can be helpful to you. You will find the manager and staff anxious to help you and give you useful advice at all times. "Whatever the pur- pose of young people's groups, money is always involved money which belongs to the group as a whole, not to the individuals concerned. So the peo- ple who look after the financial affairs of the club want to do so in the best interests of the whole group today and for those who will belong in the future. "Handling money for a club needn't be a problem. In fact, the treasurer and others concerned can derive real satisfaction from handling the club money effectively and gain ex- perience which will be useful in later life. But like any other group ac- tivity, there are a few rules and procedures to follow. Your bank will help make it easy." months old and living in British Columbia. She was later fitted with a contact lens which is periodically changed at the clinic. A cataract clouds the lens of the eye so that light cannot get through to the retina to permit vision. Cataracts have a variety of causes, including injury and may sometimes run in families. Dr. Brent said babies as young as six months old can be fitted with soft contact lenses at the clinic and that by the age of five or six most children can handle lenses. Soft lenses accustom children to wearing a lens "and if they need a hard lens later for better vision they accept it more he said. Dr. Brent said contact lenses may also be needed by children whose eyes differ greatly in vision since, with ordinary glasses, the picture is distorted when a strong lens and a weak one are combined. Frank DiMarco, 8, another patient at the clinic, developed a cataract as a result of a hockey injury which cut the cornea, the transparent tissue in front of the eye. Three eye specialists at the hospital, Dr. Tom Pashby, Dr. J. S. Crawford and Dr. Lionel Chisholm, have conducted a study of eye injuries resulting from hockey. They found that in one year, there were 287 eye injuries and in seven cases the player lost the sight of an eye. The doctors are working with the Canadian Standards Association to establish stan- dards for safety hockey masks, strong enough to stop a bullet, which would be moulded to the face. Girls now allowed as youthful MPs VANCOUVER (CP) Girls will be allowed to sit as member of the British Colum- bia Youth Parliament for the first time in its 44 sessions when it meets in Victoria starting Dec. 27. Kathleen Ruff, head of the B.C. Human Rights Com- mission, will act as lieutenant -governor during the five- day session. Alan Wing of Vancouver will be premier and Kent Campbell of Van- couver, leader of the op- position. The main project scheduled for consideration will be a camp for underprivileged children to be run by the parliamentarians. BIG MOBILIZATION In the First World War the Russians mobilized 12 million men and nine million were casualties. The Herald- Youth Subway Academy inspires students to study at home TORONTO (CP) Les used to be what high school guidance counsellors called a "problem student." Two years ago, he missed most school days and was usually late when he did arrive. His marks were in history arid low in mathematics. When he wasn't at school, Les stayed home and read univer- sity-level history books and worked on his extensive coin collec- tion. Now Les, 17, is one of 75 students enrolled in the Toronto board of education's Subway school where stu- dents are encouraged to study at home. Its name was chosen because students use the subway to get to various sources of learning. If Les does not appear at school his teachers are neither sur- prised nor probably off learning on his own and will show up when he needs their help. Les studies history with an older University of Toronto stu- dent, takes tuba lessons at another high school and went on an archeological dig at Fort York. He said his old high school was "like hell because it was so boring." Aubrey Rhamey, principal of Eastern High School of Commerce, where the academy was established last year, said it appeals to brilliant students who are frustrated by the day-to- day approach to studies and want to steam ahead. "And it also attracts the students who just can't take any form of regimentation." Students earn high school credits in various ways including tutoring by one of the academy's three teachers or independent research projects. Teachers and students negotiate a contract for research pro- jects setting out the details of work to be done by a specified date. "I've only had one student who has failed to meet the said teacher Achim Krull. In some seminars, teachers and students determine the marks for a course presentation. Heather Greenhow, 17, prefers the academy because "you can spend an entire day or longer working on something that really interests you." "The school day isn't divided up into little time slots where you spend 42 minutes studying science before you move on to English class. And you can work alone. It doesn't matter if there's a teacher around." Principal Rhamey estimates that about one-third of the academy's students performed better than they would at a regular high school. A third did about as well and a third per- formed below their potential. Academy students have recommended that students abusing their freedom by not performing be sent back to regular high schools, but this has not happened yet, Mr. Krull said. "This school isn't for student David Agnew, 16, said. "Some people just can't handle the freedom." Only the suit is a costume Rev.
