Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 21, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 8-THE LETHBRIDGE HEBALD-Thurwlay, February Schools only short distance apart Students compare notes By KATHIE MacLEAN Herald Staff Writer Seventy miles of prairie, an imaginary boundary and a lifetime of differences separate Mark and Loretta. Although they are the same age and in the same grade, there are, many contrasts between their educational systems Canadian and American. Through an exchange program, sponsored by the Warner Lions Club, a dozen Grade 11 students from Warner and Conrad, Mont., were able to spend two weeks together, first in Conrad, then in Warner. Loretta Lomas of Warner was amazed to see so many differences. The most noticeable contrast between the two schools was the flexibility in discipline. In Conrad, discipline is much stricter. "Students need passes for almost said a student from Conrad. "Up here they just get up and walk out of class if they feel like it." He says certain grades have to be made before anyone is eligible to participate in any sports activity. Laurie Matheson says, "Curfews are enforced for all students on sports teams of any kind." "Hockey is big up she says, "but at home we only see hockey on television. There's no skating and I've never curled." "The big sports in Conrad are basketball and she says, "and scholarships are emphasized for them." Both schools have adopted the credit system, but in Conrad, students need 190 credits in order to receive a diploma compared to Warner's 100 credits. "Conrad courses are much more specialized. We are more into math and never touch physics until Grade 11 or Laurie says. She explained that in the lower grades, the classes are fairly general until Grade 8, then students start specializing and continue throughout high school. Mark Arubb of Conrad, "We don't have to take a foreign language." "Canada is hardly ever talked about in pur history Mark says, "it only comes up through studies on Britain. "I think Warner students know more about us because there's a lot of government activity on television these days. We have a lot more political he says. Debi Cooper of Warner noticed a big difference in the grading system. "To get an A here, we have to get between 80 and 100 per cent, but in Conrad an A is 94 to she says. "When 65 per cent is a B here, there it's a D. "Conrad students are much more studious than we says Debi. Laurie explained the group found a difference in expressions. "We say 'huh' and Canadians say 'eh' "When I first came here I didn't even know what a couch she says. feels Conrad students are more studious Hornets in second place By KEVIN HARTLEY The Hamilton Hornets won their second game last weekend by clobbering the Wilson Warlords 31-9. Both teams showed a poor first quarter as the score was 2-0 for the Hornets. The Hornets picked up in the second quarter, leaving the floor at half-time with a 13-2 lead. Owen Hayward led the Hornet attack with 11 points and Bruce Olsen netted eight. The Hornets are now resting in second place with a 2-3 win- loss record behind the CCHS saints and Paterson Tigers, both holding a 4-1 win-loss record. In the girls' action, the biggest upset occurred when the Wilson girls' defeated the Hamilton Halos by a score of 17-16. Yolayne Jang led the Halo attack with eight points and played some excellent basketball. The Halos still rest in first place with a 4-1 win-loss record. Next game is Friday against Paterson.

Drily to 6 pjn. Thureday and Friday am to 9 p.m. TORONTO (CP) For two years George Csaba Roller and Ari Ibranyi-Kiss have been struggling to publish Cinema Canada, a lively magazine on Canada's frail movie industry. Frail is also the word for the magazine, published six times a year. It had in the bank and a debt of in mid- February and'may soon fold unless financial help arrives from provincial and federal sources. Mr. Roller, 27, is editor, publisher and business man- ager. His wife Agi, 23, is managing editor and circula- tion manager. Their only full- time colleague is 23-year-old Harris Kirshenbaum, adver- tising manager. All three work 12 hours a day for a week each. George and Ari live in a small one-room apartment and subsist mainly on rice and vegetables. During the two years, the magazine has received in government as a Local Iniatives Program, from the Ontario Arts Council and as the first half of a promised from the Canada Council. The remaining will arrive after the next issue is published March 29, but it has been promised to the bank which helped them earlier. After Issue No. 13 appears, the debt to printers will in- crease by from "What it boils down to is said Mr. Roller. "We need a bare minimum of 000 now just to keep oper- and a minimum of 000 or for the rest of 1974. Farther ahead than that we are not even daring to imagine." Since Mr. Roller and associ- ates took over Cinema Can- ada in' 1972 the circulation has grown to from and its size has doubled to 84 pages. About 70 per cent of the magazine's current revenue comes from advertising and 30 per cent from circulation, but the total never even be- gins to operating ex- penses. Mr. Roller is grateful for the help he has received but he has no hesitation in pointing to other periodicals that have been getting more. The current issue is filled with on-the-spot news and in- terviews concerning Canadian film-makers in many parts of the world. There are book and movie reviews, photos, classi- fied ads, editorials and a comprehensive report on last year's Stratford International Film Festival. More thought required when shopping for dogs EDMONTON (CP) Shop- ping for a dog should take more time than looking for a new car, says veterinarian Or. David Cartledge. "A dog is going to be with you for 10 years or more while most people don't keep a car nearly that said the president-elect of the Ed- monton Association of Small Animal Veterinarians. More thought should be put into selecting a pet. "Lots of people don't know what they're buying. They forget they should be looking for faults and they get all emotional about that cute puppy." Dr. Cartledge advises that temperament of the potential pet is the most important Margo Oliver Visits The World's Most Famous Cooking School Le Cordon Bleu In Paris In Weekend Magazine this Saturday. The Lethbridge Herald quality to look for. Purebreds are likely to have a better disposition, he said. "I hate to push purebreds, but mongrels sometimes have the worst tempera- ments." DOGS MAY VARY Although dogs of a particu- lar breed tend to have similar characteristics, Dr. Cartledge cautions that individual dogs can vary greatly. Inhumane treatment can change any dog's basic behavior patterns. Dr. Cartledge recommends that if a purebred is selected, the prospective owner should go to a dog show to take a close look at how the breed acts. Obedience courses are sug- gested by Dr. Cartledge. "It trains you in bow to handle a dog and how to com- municate with a dog." "If you hit a dog too much, or get uptight yourself, the dog will get uptight If you can control your emotions, yon can control a dog's emo- tions." GIVE PET AWAY If the owner decides to get rid of a dog. Dr. Cartledge says the best solution is not to have it destroyed, but to give it to someone who wants a pet "So many people get the idea (hat a dog becomes so attached to them that it will pine away without them. Or that nobody else will take care of the dog as well as (bey did. "I know a lot of people who got dogs at the SPCA and they're really good people and take good care of the dogs." says atmosphere is more relaxed in Warner School -The Herald- Youth Exchange tours still open for applications Applications are still being accepted for agricultural exchange tours to Europe, Australia and New.

Campus Corner By PHILIP JANG Lethbridge Collegiate Institute In our home, we nave one of those calendars where you rip a sheet off as each day passes. I've never taken the trouble to update the thing but inspite of that, the calendar has always displayed the right page on the right date. It has hung there since late December and I only recently saw it in the real sense of seeing. Things look so very much different when you take the time to see rather than to just look. The door of my bedroom for example; I open and close it every day, curse it when I stub my toe against it during late night jaunts to the kitchen, receive lectures about it when the dust accumulation on it becomes too high. As I see it at this moment, though, it's a very different kind of door. I see the Gve separate panels, the stylish rivets, the tarnished coat hook, the speck of paint in the upper right hand corner from the last time my room was painted, and there's two hinges, too. There is so much that has never been seen, and yet has always been there waiting to be seen. You can discover more about yourself simply by taking the time to see, by deciding why a particular thing is nice or disagreeable. It can be a real asset, too, with respect to discovering why you don't have time for this or that when you really do. Things become so much more understandable, manageable, and enjoyable just by taking the time to notice those little nicks and rivets in our daily schedules and perhaps rearranging or eliminating them. This, notably, is easier said than done; a little thing called discipline comes into play, and very few of us have it to any desirable degree. It's a good feeling to know that all the homework and essays are out of the way, that you haven't wasted another day on things that are only almost enjoyable and not particularly challenging.
