The Communist party lead- ership recently announced a plan to extend compulsory kindergarten to all children aged three through five by 1980. Already per cent of children of this age- are enrolled in more than 000 kindergartens, according to official sources The purpose, according to Romanian and foreign sources, appears threefold: to free more mothers for jobs in fast-growing industry, to raise the level of education" and tighten ideological control. At Kindergarten 57 school starts between 6 and 8 a.m., depending on the parents' jobs. It ends between 4 and p.m. The children are given breakfast, lunch and an afternoon snack Each class of 25 to 30 has two teachers, one in the morning, another in the afternoon Margareta Marina, the school's director, said the state spends lei a year for each child. Parents pay 36 lei a month, about one per cent of average family income if both parents work. Ceausescu says Romania's major economic problem is shortage of labor for new fac- tories. The priority task, he insists, is attracting-more women into industry. For this, more kindergartens are needed.

The biggest problem for the Hornets was Mike Sheen of the Tigers, who netted 14 points and controlled the rebounds. The Hornets fell apart in the second quarter as the Tigers made use of bad passes, bad shots and went into half-time holding at 16-9 lead. Leading scorers for the Hornets were Daryl Langndge with six points and Bruce Olsen. five. Even though the Hornets had their problems, the Halos were victorious, ending the 'game with an 18-15 win over the Tigerettes.

Principal S. K, Smith has started to fulfill his lifelong dream of giving students the responsibility of choosing their own courses and timetables. Students who have been able to hold a 3 9 academic average out of a possible 4.0 throughout their regular courses have been placed on the "white card system." The purpose of the system is to allow top students to carry on research and study hi areas they fed are challenging and educational. Stringham, Crystal Myashiro and Lisa Nirk each picked up two points. The Halos are now on top of the league with a 34 win-loss record. Today's schools preferred By STEVE SAWCHUK Today's school buildings are far more practical than those of yesteryear. This is because of the great increase in the school population In the early 1900s there were less children attending school and many small communities had a need for a small school. In many cases, simply a one-room school- When school attendance was nude compulsory the size of the school population began to increase. It's getting to the point now where some schools are beginning to look like universities two or even three stories high. It is nice in this day and age to have schools divided into elementary, junior and senior high instead of the little one roomed schools our fathers attended. Good crop INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.

Campus Corner By CAROLYN STERENBERG Winston Churchill Teams from Edmonton, Red Deer and other cities throughout Alberta and British Columbia will be participating in the annual girls' invitational basketball tournament starting at 4 p.m. Friday and running all day Saturday at Winston Churchill. The consolation game will be played at 7 p.m. Saturday with the championship at p.m. A dance will be held after the tournament, featuring Kathy and the Kool-aid Kids. During the past few weeks I have discovered the true meaning of hidden talents. The great freeze after the Chinook left Lethbridge in a state of house-to-house ice. My most recent discoveries of unknown talents were balancing on narrow strips of dry pavement and walking with as few falls as possible on slick patches of ice. Another trick to master is dodging oncoming vehicles when you are walking on the streets Most of the time when your intuitiontells you you Ye going to fall, yon never do. It's only when you end up flat on your back or on your tailbone. somewhat painfully, that you realize the saying about a woman's intuition not always being correct The embarrassing moments occur, usually when you're in a hurry and you're walking all alone. All of a sudden you find yourself studying a cloud, directly 90 degrees above the level of the street. The only "good" thing about falling like this is your blushing face can be seen against the white of the ice so little accidents like getting run over are prevented. 23 ORIGINAL NASHVILLE HITS LP.
