Grade 12 exams a problem again By RON CALDWELL Staff Writer The dales set by Ihe provin- cial government for Grade 12 departmental examinations in June will cause some problems in Lethbridge because of the city's semcslcred school sys- tem. The examinations are set for June 12 to 19. The Lethbridge semester ends June 7, which means there is a period of nearly two weeks before stu- dents are out of school for the year. The Tuesday night meeting of the public school board was told the dates are causing in- convenience to many parents who have already scheduled their summer vacations and DOW are forced to change them. Students who had expected to be availalble for summer jobs before June 19 also face a prob- lem. The length of time between the end of regular classes and the start of departmental is also seen as a disadvantage to student? who are not particu- larly studious, although it will have the opposite effect on the more studious students. In an effort to lessen the ef- fects of the examination dates, the public school board has de- cided that the last day for in- struction in non-departmental subjects will be May 31 while instruction -in departmental subjects will conclude June fith Local examinations in non- departmental subjects will be written June 1 to c.

Yes. just last week, the ice was melting, the snow was disappearing and buds were starting to appear on the trees. Even the little flowers and plants were preparing to spring forth. Now, the ice is frozen, the snow has reappeared and heaven only knows what has happened to the buds on the trees. Oh, and those poor, heluless flowers. The weather for today will see the sky start to" clear around noon. The temperature will get all the way up to 10 to 15 above before dropping to zero to five below overnight. Tomorrow will be cloudy with some snowflurries and the temperature will be much the same as today. It would also be a safe bet that there won't be much change in the weather for at least a few more days. Curse you, whoever or whatever you are. Curse you, curse you, curse you.
