I also perceive little hints and shadows of not-so- good times, troubles, and strag- gles, which will probably have fuzzy edges when I look into my remembrance years from now and I may even laugh. But that's OK. troubles are kind a fun sometimes (especial- ly when they're over) but isn't Another week, the auditorium was the scene of the Collegiate Carousel as evening of fine aris. Our band filled the gym with joyous sound. Hire's just no two' ways about it. our band is just plain great!

And looking at the world through new eyes, full of wonder. For afterall, it's New Year, Isn't it? Oh and there's something else I see in New Year. There's 3. lovely bit of a white glinting and flitting about. 1 think it just might be a little Peace. New Year! Some, perhaps, will dab their eyes a little, as they mourn the Old Year's pass- ing. Some will judiciously make long lists of resolutions. Some may even keep their resolutions how unbearable they'd be then! Some won't even no- tice the New Year, but instead, pled along as usual. But, now that you've got a Brand New class. To end the evening, re- freshments, made by the foods and nutrition girls, were provid- ed. And no one even got a mild attack of botulism! The Christmas dance for all three high schools found itself at LCI. The Painter and the Sleepy John played amid gala decorations. Needless to say, everyone had a great time. For Christmas, the art classes put up huge colorful murals on every available bit of window. Noon Umes found an ever-in- creasing group of students sing- ing Christmas carols around our glittering Christmas tree. The halls reverberated with song floating on happy voices. The Uldl }UU vc A uituiu iiutiuiig un Year, what are you going to do mistletoe in the main hall was with it? Due to a delightful absence of pre Christmas exams, LCI has been a flurry of our gym especially. One week, we held our annual Invitational teams from B.C., Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and Alberta partici- pated. The team from Kremlin, Montana took home the cham- pionship trophy, after slipping past our Rams by 58-55. Our Rams are really terrific this year they've won almost ev- ery single game they've play- ed. The Colts are showing a lot of promise by avidly following': in the Rams' hoofprints. And, of c o u r s e, our Clippers are I tiie scene of quite a bit of ac tion on 'Kiss-a-Friend' Day. And the last day of classes was real- ly great. Due to a strange de- ficiency of students, the few who managed to get to school had a ball. With a class filled oHtli fjw1 2 ipJU'bpr cannot possibly teach, so in- stead, he had to become a nor- mal beautiful human being. A great many lively and spontan- eous discussions about any- thing and everything just hap- pened. You know, teachers are actually people just like you and I!

Old time costumes were the event of the evening as nearly 800 and District Oldtimers Pemmican Club was celebrated in true pioneer dancers kicked up their heels throughout the evening. President of the fashion Wednesday at the Exhibition Pavilion with the annual reunion Club is Thomas E. Nolan. Honorary president is Mrs. Joe Craig. Mother of three cut off ivelfare to get degree SCHENECTADY, N.Y. CAP) Barbara Whitney has been receiving public assist- ance for 10 years and says lira best way for her to get off welfare is to get a college degree. As a result, the 28-year-old mother of three refused em- ployment and, instead, be- came a full-lime student at the State University centre in nearby Albany. That decision led the Sche- ncctady County public wel- fare department to declare Mrs. Whitney ineligible on the ground that the law does not provide for her mainte- nance as as full-Lime college student. The county was upheld Monday by the state social services commission, mean- ing Mrs. Whitney will lose her benefits, although her three children IB and un- der will continue to re- ceive support. Her goal, she says, is to be- come a sociology major and help other people get off wel- fare. She also says it is out ol the question for her to keep up with her college studies and take a job. Saskatcheivan Homecoming rung in on New Year's Eve REGINA largest- ever New Year's Eve party hi the history of Regina will set the tone for the coming S a s katchewan's Homecoming 71. Hopefully, a happy crowd of couples will turn out for the gala event to start the prov- ince on a year long extrava- ganza of fun and friiic. Everything geis under way at :30 p.m. CST in the spanking new Saskatchewan Centre of the arts on the south shore of Wascana Lake. It'll run into the wee hours of the morning but it won't end there. A half-hour stage show fea- turing some of Saskatchewan's best-k n o w n entertainers will kick oS the night's activities. They include Jim Roberts, who wrote and recorded the hit song S a s katchewan, Bette Graham, Pat S'ceele, the Carol Bell Danc- ers and an orchestra and cho- For The T) J ivCcuiu By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor 0NE OF THE speeches I'd like most to hear in 1971 is: "Thank you for the honor which you have be- stowed upon me tonight. It's damned well about time you recognized my abilities. I've worked in a lot of menial jobs in this organization to get where I am today. I knew from the beginning that I was right for the job but unforunately you have to work up in the ranks to get here. "I worked like on all those joe jobs you handed out, and took all the guff that went along with it. This is really a big day for me because I'm finally where I wanted to be. "I owe a debt of thanks to my wife who sat alone night after night. She wasn't always nice about it whenever I was going out in fact she got pretty fed up with all you guys, but she's here with me tonight so she must feel it's worthwhile oo, the prestige and all that. "Anyway, don't worry about next year. I've been waiting for a chance to put all my ideas into action, and if you guys will get off your duffs and do some- thing when you're asked to for a change, we'll have a swinging year. "I know you'd like me to offer a few more words of encouragement but I'll save them for the next meeting when the women aren't present and I can really lay it on the line." And if Alderman Camm Barnes is getting a fav- orable reaction from motorists who like the Satur- day parking, he should try getting a reaction from the motorists who sit in line while the guy up front gets a parking place. If you can't get through the downtown area, due to plugged traffic arteries, you might just as well bypass the whole issue. Maybe the situation needs more supervision of motorists who hold up traffic; maybe it needs moving the cars out from the meters on time, and maybe it needs still more education of the driving public to the car park. Whatever it needs, it's needed soon. Ilia road ohend -I lies qnothsr year. As you travel along if, our thanks and good wishes go with you.

Another feature will be the fi- nal judging and crowning of the Homecoming queen, to be se- lected from 12 finalists repre- senting the 12 provincial zones, where preliminary contests were held earlier. The lucky Miss Homecoming 71 will reign over special ev- ents during the entire year as the people of Saskatchewan put out the welcome mat to all in the hospitality year sponsored by the department of industry and commerce.
