Camous Corner Scientist seeks cancer cure in lifeblood of jungle trees By JOAN WAUTERS ! Kate Andrews High School It was amazing! Most of the people were happy. Why would the banning of departmental examinations make anyone happy? This move could cause a complete breakdown of the education system as it is known today, but everyone seemed to have approved of it. Teacher examinations can never replace the departmental. A lot of money and time is spent in writing these departmental exams. Very experienced exam writers receive the job of writing them. Few teachers have the experience and knowledge behind writing a good exam. This skill only comes with long years of experience. The departmental gives every student the benefit of the best possible examination. Prejudices may have an adverse affect on the teacher mark. Prejudice is a human trait. � Everyone, including teachers, has some degree of favoritism within him. Departmental exams are in no way biased. They consist of multiple choice questions, which eliminate favoritism. The student has the opportunity to request a reread of his exam to make sure that it is marked correctly. Every student deserves the opportunity to be tested without a chance that prejudism will come into the picture. The departmental examination also gives the student a vice to use in determining how well he knows his material compared with the rest of the students in the province. This comparison is necessary. Students will be forced to compete with each other for the rest of their lives, so they need some standard to judge themselves by. The departmental also gives secondary schools a basis for comparing students. Without it, they have no way of telling how well a student knows the necessary material Departmental examinations provide a useful way for both students and secondary schools to compare students against each other. Because of a university's inability to compare the academic standing of students without the departmental, university entrance exams will probably become necessary. These exams are not based on what a student has learned in his courses, but on what the student knows in general. Teachers will begin teaching towards these exams. � This type of teaching reduces the amount learned on the subject being taught. De partmental exams are based on the curriculum so they force teaching of what is found in the course. Teaching towards university entrance exams has already become a reality in the United States. This is a poor and undesirable form of education. The departmental exam is desirable over university entrance exams. The departmental examinations in Alberta are a very important aspect of the education system. They are excellent exams that are written to truly test the student's knowledge of the course he is taking. They eliminate the chance of favoritism, that any teacher cannot possibly eliminate. They are an important device in comparing the knowledge students have achieved They serve their purpose much better than university entrance exams ever could. The loss of departmental examinations will have serious effects on the education sys-I tem of Alberta. * LEISTERS' COMING EVENTS * # The Allied Art Council Presents Alberta Regional One Act Drama Festival Sat., Feb. 24 - 8 p.m. - Yates Memorial Centre & Lethbridge Communty College Harlequins present "You're a Good Man Charlie Brown" Yates Memorial Centre - March 1, 2 and 3 0 The Canadian Mental Health Association Presents . . .

Cheese market flourishes LONDON (CP) - Although Britain is a major importer of dairy products, she is experiencing a boom in exports of cheese. Production at home has tripled in 35 years and more Britons are eating their own country's cheese. There are nine .great British cheeses and total production in 1970 was 125,000 tons compared with 43,000 tons in 1938. Production was on the rise in 1971 but total figures are not yet available. The first boom in cheese began in 1955 when, wartime restrictions forgotten, t h e fashion began for wine and cheese parties. There was WteeWhim# Margaret Leslie receives the original art for her Wee Whimsy. Send yours to this paper. also demand for British cheese among expatriates and now European c o u n t ri e s, which have good cheeses of their own, are importing cheese from England, where records show the food was produced as early as 2,000 years ago. The making of cheese itself has changed little over the centuries although it was done in farmhouses without elaborate equipment until 1870 when the first cheese factory opened near Derby in the Midlands. MADE IN CREAMERIES At first, cheese creameries, as the factories now are known, concentrated on varieties traditionally associated with their locations. Now Cheddar, the most popular variety and the most imitated, may be made far away from the original birthplace. To make Cheddar, the milk, after being pasteurized, is cooled, put into a vat and a starter consisting of a culture of lactic streptococci is added. As the milk temperature is gradally raised, these produce increasing acidity in the milk. Then rennet is added and the milk coagulates. After about half an hour a firm junket or curd is formed. The curd is then cut into small pieces to allow the whey to escape and the temperature is raised. The moulded curd is put in a press for one to two days, when it is known as a green cheese. Cheddar is considered the right age for eating from three to 12 months later. CASH BINGO ST. BASIL'S HALL-Cor. 13th St. and 6th Ave. N.

Stilton has been made since the 18th century. White Stilton, sold within three to four weeks of being made-before the characteristic blue veins have been formed-is also a pleasant cheese. CHEDDAR MOST GENERAL. English Cheddar, originally made in the Gheddar Gorge area in the west of England, has been a favorite since the 16th century. It is probably the most generally eaten and the most copied by other countries. Cheshire, popular since the 12th century, was said to have been a great favorite with Queen Elizabeth I. It comes in three colors, red, white and blue-Old Blue being first favorite. Caerphilly, mild in flavour, pale in color, was first made in the tiny Welsh village from which it takes its name. Originally a miners' cheese, taken down the pits as a sustaining meal with a thick piece of home-made bread, it now is popular all over Britain. Double Gloucester-the name refers to its traditional size, a single Gloucester being half as big-used to be garlanded and earned round the city of Gloucester on May Day. Liecester, shaped like a large millstone, has a mild, mellow flavour. Lancashire, crumbly and creamy, is often toasted and is popular as a snack with beer. Wensleydale, made by local farmers after its original producers, the Cisterian monks, fled when Henry VIII pillaged their property, is another crumbly, mild cheese. Derby, mild when young, strong when older, is a close textured cheese, excellent for sandwiches. Sometimes, as with Lancashire, it is flavored with finely chopped sage leaves, giving an attractive green hue. As well as these nine traditional cheeses local varieties still are made. hoys at YMCA David A. Snell, assistant physical director at the Lethbridge Family YMCA has resigned, effective March 15, to accept a similar position in Edmonton. In his two years with the Y, said general secretary Ken Spence, Mr. Snell "has made an outstanding contribution for his part in the preschool program and leadership training." He was also instrumental in bringing lacrosse into the city and in the formation of the two Y teams. Lacrosse training for boys 9 to 14 will get underway this Saturday. The 11- and 12-year-olds will meet at 1:30 p.m.; the 9-and 10-year-olds at 2:15; and the 13-and 14-year-olds at 3. Boys are advised to register as soon as possible, as classes will be limited. The Y extension project, which is funded by the government PEP program, is receiving enthusiastic acceptance in the city and surrounding areas Ninety children registered for elementary gymnastics at Lake-view school, and heavy enrolment was anticipated last night at Senator Buchanan. Fitness classes for women and children in rural areas are proving highly successful, and the addition of men's classes is being discussed. The young people working on the program are so enthusias tic, said Mr. Spence, that the Y is investigating the possibility of extending the May wind-up date. Throwing a rope ladder over the limb of the tree, he cuts off a sample log, keeping away from the main tree trunk where deadly bushmaster snakes miay be lurking. The logs, usually seven feet long, are taken to his laboratory in San Jose, where, with a special pressure processing he developed, Hudson extracts tree sap. Boiled down and dehydrated, the dry chemical extract from the sap is sent to the National Cancer Institute at Bethesda, Md., for testing. TESTED IN MICE Hudson, a chemist from Spartanburg, S.C., says his sample extract tested in mice have already shown confirmed activity against the spread of leukemia, a form of blood cancer. "My theory in searching for a cancer deterrent is that tree sap, the life blood of trees, contains a growth factor which determines when buds blossom, ^4 calendar oj- local Lappenln^s The Minus One Club will hold a dance Saturday from 9 p.m to 1 a.m. in the Polish Hall.

Advertising dehumanizes TORONTO (CP) - Men are so frightened about women's liberation movement that they don't want to miake jokes about it, says Marshall McLuhan, Canada's communic a t i o n s philosopher. He and feminist Betty Friedan, founder of the National Organization of Women in the United States, were addressing a meeting of the American Marketing Association here. Mr. McLuhan said jokes are always grievances, abrasions, and tell you "where it's at." Madmen never tell jokes and it's dangerous when jokes dry up in politics and society. He told his predominantly male audience that men are trying desperately to find new roles for themselves. He said the liberation movement was similar to a person running down the street crying: "I've got the answers. What are the questions." Mrs. Friedan said neither men or women are helped by advertising or remarks featuring women as sex objects. "It is dehumanizing for both when women are treated like a piece of disposable tissue." Mrs. Friedan said more and more men are joining the movement. Young men are saying; 'I don't have to have a crew cut and be tight-lipped to prove I am a man, I am tender and compassionate and I can admit I am afraid sometimes." how big leaves grow, when fruit ripens," he said in recent visit. "If the buds of trees were uncontrolled, they might get as big as footballs and fall off before they produced anything." By discovering the' growth regulator, Hudson, who is in his 60s, hopss to find the means of controlling the cellular rampage that is cancer. In the little more than a year he has been in Costa Rica, Hudson made 046 extracts. Preliminary screening has been done on 375 of these. Hudson said more than 50 are showing activity against leukemia and some against a nasal cancer. Explaining how the Cancer Research Institute uses his sap extracts, Hudson said: "They take 12 mice, give them leukemia, say a fast-acting kind that will kill in 10 days. "Six are given drugs made from the extracts from a given tree. If the six who get the extracts live on the average of 25 per cent longer than the mice Who didn't get the drug, then you might possibly have an activity against leukemia," he continued. "When this happens, they ask us for another sample from the same species. They again make the experiment with 12 more mice. If they get the same results, they ask for a third samrole. "If, after the third screening, the mice again show up to 25 per cent longer life with the drug, they say we have eon-finned activity against leukemia." Eventually, the drugs will be tested in apes and then in man.
