Campus Corner "The Victorian Order of Nurses has a solid foundation in Lethbridge, and with community support, it will not fail," said Mrs. Helen Morgan, past president of the Lethbridge branch of the VON at their sixteenth annual meeting held Thursday at the Park Plaza motor hotel. The organization in 1970 witnessed a slight decrease in support, while increasing their service over 1969. There were 6,440 visits to 609 patients in 1970 compared to 5,161 visits to 585 patients in 1969. 145 visits were made in the town of Coaldale, and 76 in the County of Lethbridge. Over 100 couples attended the pre-natal classes which were ~wm By MARIE HRYNKIW 1 Catholic Central High School Sadly, one of the most predominant, most unseeing and most destructive attitudes of modern man seems to be that change necessarily implies progress, that every new technological discovery is, automatically, a technological advance. Much of the turmoil in the world today is a result of the 'improvements' made a few years ago: scaffold has been replaced by scaffold. Many of the educators of today have, apparently, fallen under the mesmerizing spell of the wierd ideas, so often passing as 'thought'. Can machines ever replace good teaching, can they supply the warmth and understanding that are NEEDED, but already, so often lacking, in working with developing minds? These people con veniently forget (according to Ruskin that "Education does NOT mean teaching people what they do not know ... It is a painful, continual, and difficult work - to be done by kindness, by watching, by warning, by precept, and by praise, but above all - by example." If a school's teachers are not truly learned, educated and good human beings, it is not possible for them to beneficial ly influence their students. Recently, using a new method of developing 'morals,' a junior high school teacher presented the class with an hypothetical situation in which the student was invited to 'play God.' Ten people, of varying professions and races, are stranded on an island finding that there is only enough food to sustain five of their number until aid arrives The children are asked to decide who will live and who will die. By desecrating the value of human life in such a way, the value of human lives is lessened. A few days ago, a group of students from our school had the memorable experience of visiting the Dorothy Gooder school and its students. Al though these children are handicapped mentally - and sometimes physically - their openess, trust, and concern for others is manifested in many simple ways. With patience and understanding, the teachers help each individual towards fulfill ing his capabilities, whether this be weaving a mat, or painting a lawn chair. These people were clearly not there for the money, and their dedication was in sharp contrast to the 'half efforts' of some of us. � * � At Catholic Central, much effort has been put into the comedy 'The Mouse That Roared', which is being presented both Friday and Saturday evenings this weekend, and Sunday afternoon.
