Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 20, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, Otccmbtr 20, 1974 Poor tots fed dog food Mayor Mel Lastman Thurs- day ordered the borough of North York's health board to conduct a study into reports that children from low in- come families are being fed dog food. The mayor said he learned of the problem after the borough checked into the proposed use of a chemical contraceptive in pet food. "It became obvious that the proposal couldn't be put into effect because the food was being eaten by hungry he said. A report prepared by June Rowlands, president of the Metropolitan Toronto Family Service Association, stated that children are being fed dog food as a sandwich spread. Borough Alderman Frank Faubert said a 1969 study showed that in Toronto's core area, four times the amount of dog food needed to feed the animal populace was sold.

Box 1616 Edmonton, Alberta T5J 2N9 CLiP AND MAIL THIS COUPON FOR INFORMATION O HOME BUYING Q FAMILY BUDGETING dedicate itself to specific pro- jects on ideals. The 10 girls on the drill team at the Lethbridge Com- .munity College blow that theory to smithereens. Dedication has to be the key to the drill team. Any girl that will run two miles a day, every day, practice from 6 a.m. to 8 a.m., give up noon hours to learn new routines, and return to practice sessions from 4-6 p.m., has to be dedicated. All that conditioning and practice is for a 15 minute ex- hibition, bordering on modern floor gymnastics, at half-time during Kodiak basketball games, at tournaments or other community functions. "Besides the program itself, which is of great benefit to the girls, the drill team serves as a public relations vehicle for the college, much the same as the LCC Equestrian drill team coach Mary Wall says. "From the girls' point of view, they learn to develop poise and confidence from the drills. They learn how to react in front of an audience, how to present themselves in a proper manner, and how to listen to music and follow a rhythm or a beat. They also benefit from the conditioning aspects of the routines as well as learning a few new dance steps." Drill team exhibitions are a combination of many variations of dance routines and floor gymnastics. The drills implement the use of can-can kicks, marches, baton and streamer twirling and jazz steps, all in perfect syn- chronization with an up-tempo musical, number. "We first select a piece of Ms. Wall said, "then we visualize a routine in our mind that follows the beat of the music. Certain routines automatically lend themselves to certain beats. "We transfer these ideas to paper, literally drawing them out, and then we put them into practice. After that the work Christmas Shop at "the store where ladies shop for men" BRENDA suggests...

We repeat, repeat and repeat the routines until they are automatic. I watch for all the little things, like thumbs sticking out instead of a nicely closed hand. But when the routine is presented its worth all that work." Coach Wall appoints a cap- tain for the team each year and works closely with her, and assistant Nancy Hudson, in choreographing the routines. Allyn Greenway is this year's captain. "My captain also serves as a kind of disciplinarian as she is the one who talks to a girl who misses practices or is late." Five girls are with the drill team for the first time: Deb- bie Jones, of Del Bonita, a se- cond year business- secretarial major; Elsa Stasiuk of Lethbridge, a nurs- ing student; Darcie Cher- vinski, Grassy Lake, a second year Physical education student; Shirley Lehto, a se- cond year physical education major from Picture Butte and Wanda Luchia of Nobleford, majoring in Community and Youth Recreation. Returning for their second year on the team are Shirley Yuill of Cardston, a second year physical education student; Allyn Greenway, team captain and second year nurse from Lethbridge; Cidnee Johnson, an honor stu- dent in nursing and a Canada Winter Games bird from Lethbridge; Anne Holowatuk, second year nurse from Yorkton, Sask., and Wendy Ryan, Chinook Carnival queen and community and youth ma- jor from Blackie. The LCC is the only college in Western Canada that offers a drill team to its students. The team is under a full scholarship program and is part of the LCC's athletic program. The girls begin their train- ing and workouts about one month prior to their first per- formance. "It takes about two weeks to select the girls. At the start of the semester, in January, any new girls coming into the college can try out for the team. We only carry 10 girls, so its strictly a competition basis. We keep the best id, even if it means replacing some girls off the past semester's Ms. Wall says. The coach is looking for girls with dance background or some gymnastics training. It is possible for the girls to work with the team and still compete in other school sports as well. Two girls, Shirley Yuill and Shirley Lehto, are members of the LCC Kodiettes basketball team.
