Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 27, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 - THI IITHMIOOI HERALD - Saturday, Mmiwy 27, 1971 EVERYTHING IN THE RIGHT PLACE - letters in the right slot is the rule followed by Ron Schellenberg of the Lethbridge 20th Scout Troop, above, as he became postmaster Friday during Founders' W�ek, honoring Lord and Lady Baden-Powell. Lethbridge Post* master Arthur Lewis watches the sorting. Above right, Lorraine Phillips, editor-for-the-day at The Herald, gets an assist from primer John McKenna, in getting the Friday paper out on time. Lorraine is with the Lethbridge 8th Guide Co. Founders' Week celebrations conclude today with a penny carnival open to the public until 4 p.m., in the Hamilton Junior High School. CCH non-musical comedy draws 225 on opening night By JOAN BOWMAN Herald Entertainment Writer CatholicCentral High School's first foray into a non-musical comedy, The Mouse That Roared, turned out to be a diverting, often humorous production Friday, although lacking in the directorial department. About 225 persons attended the opening night of the three-performance show at the Yates Memorial Centre. The play continues tonight at 8 and Sunday at 2:30 p.m. The Mouse That Roared con- cerns the Duchy of Grand Fen-wick, a mythical European mini-nation which is undergoing financial woes because of a California company's takeover of its wine trademark and markets. Fenwick's triumvirate privy council decides the best way to replenish the royal coffers is to attack the U.S., get defeated, then bask in the onslaught of American rehabilitation: the usual outpouring of money and goods the U.S. bands its defeated enemies. Unfortunately the bird-loving Good year seen by housebuilders Lethbridge housebuilders are looking forward to a good year because of recent reductions in mortgage interest rates. Alf Fazio, president of the Lethbridge Housebuilders Association, says the recent trend toward lower rates will undoubtedly bring in customers, some of whom will be persons with lower incomes who would INSURANCE  LIABILITY  BONDS  AUTO  FIRE ROSSITER AGENCIES LTD.

There will probably be a noticeable increase, he said, in lower cost homes, those in the $14,000 to $18,000 range. Quality in these houses will be good, he said but they will be relatively small (800 to 1,-000 square feet) and there will be few frills. He added that there seems to be a countrywide trend away from apartments back to single-family units and predicted a high vacancy rate in local apartments this summer or fall. Walter Stewart of Nu-Mode Homes Ltd. agreed that the emphasis this year will be on low-cost housing. He suggested prospective buyers take advantage of homes already on the market rather than wait for a major reduction in mortgage interest rates. HEINITZ PRINTERS & STATIONERS LTD. 324 9th St. S.

Fenwick now faces the unhappy prospect of having to rehabilitate America. However, all ends well. Fenwick comes into money and its young ruler, Gloriana, into marriage. America reassumes its top-banana role, and global peace is assured - a neat set of tricks for a country which can't even be found on a map. The cast of about 50 students, under the direction of drama teacher Gloria Armel, performed creditably in a play which requires large doses of comic acting abilty. Grey Royer was adequately earnest and brain-bereft as Fenwick's military leader-for-a-while. Araiemarie Schefter as Gloriana the Twelfth was easy to hear and gave a good attempt at portraying a duchess come early to her reign. Some of the more liable cast with lesser roles: Paulette De Coste and Dave Kato as two Americans who, at the sight of Fenwick's nondescript army, fear their sanity has gone into retirement; Pat Joevenazzo, Teresa Krol, Kathleen Mills and Rosemarie Wityk as four camera - enamored TV-interviewees; Larry Anderson as Professor Kokintz, inventor of the secret weapon, whose often o v e r-played concern settled into a fuiiny, nerve-jangling twitter; and Steve Meszaros who as the enraged American general kept a firm grasp on his character. Also doing good jobs were Nick Previsich, Randy Moroz, Randy Royer, Leigh Parkinson, Martha Dimnick and Kathy Zelinsky. What the play lacked were neat touches of comic inventiveness and effective blocking by the director. The TV interview worked; the placing of the duchess and her councillors did not. Scenes set initially behind the curtain seemed to be bound to the same stage-depth line. S o me suggestions: dialogue isn't worth having unless it's given clearly. The cast mig>t have drawn out more humor had it played more to the audience. When characters talked as they walked off the stage, the scenes' endings fit; but at other times, dialogue or action was completed too soon. And three small points: an initial wearing apparel with more royalty about it would have given Gloriana an added necessary touch of monarchy; the poor U.S. president had a tiny desk which looked as if Washington were rationing his office equipment; and when the people of Fenwick sang, presumably from outside the palace, they were always accompanied by piano music. Did Fomvick keep a piano in the village fountain? High school productions are designed a s learning experiences for students, teachers and directors. If they did learn something, and the audience enjoyed their attempt, the production can be counted a success. The Mouse That Roared belongs to that category. Kinsmen chief speaks in city Bill Reid, national president, of the Association of Kinsmen1 Cluba, was featured speaker at' the 33rd anniversary celebra-. tion of the Lethbridge Kinsmen Club at Sven Ericksen's restaurant Friday night. Mr. Reid spoke about the healthy attitude of members of the Kinsmen clubs across Canada toward both club and public service work. "While other clubs seem to be losing membership and the remaininig City Liberals to select delegates A meeting to select Lethbridge delegates to the leadership convention March 13 of the Liberal Party of Alberta has been scheduled for Wednesday at 8 p.m. in the Park Plaza Motor Hotel. The leadership convention, called to fill the position left vacant last year by Jack Low-ery of Calgary, will be held at the MacDona'd Hotel in Edmonton. Lethbridge East and Lethbridge West ridings are eligible to send 20 delegates each to the convention. Announced candidates for the leadership are Robert Russell of St. Albert and John Day of Edmonton. Total teacher commitment urged Renewal and strengthening of social systems automatically results from a professional teacher's work, 1,300 teachers at the Southwestern Alttrta Teachers' Association annual convention were told Friday. Dr. Samuel D. Proctor, of Rutgers University in New Jersey, received a standing ovation from teachers for his address, which demanded nothing short of total commitment by teachers towards their occupational responsibilities. "Teachers who merely hold jobs with contracts will not suffice," Dr. Proctor said. "Professional" signifies a depth of commitment which does not exist in what is simply "a job" - and teachers who have "a job" are not adequate for today's world. A professional teacher will want to know how his skills can be sharpened, will want to see what the future holds and haw he can help to make it come about. "Every time a teacher sees his students he will range his mind far and wide into the future to think about what each student will contribute to humanity not today, but when he is 35," Dr. Proctor said. Just as a professional marine biologist would want to know all of the likely results of his actions "before he killed off all the jellyfish in the oceans," so should a teacher want to know and be in control of the re-cults of his classroom teaching. "A real teacher is not merely walking into a classroom to evaluate or raise marks, or to advance h i s students from Grade 6 to Grade 7," Dr. Proctor said. He said today's youth look at the world and at the government and see that the government seems to care little about the environment the poor people cr the solution of other major problems. "Government in itself and government by law is a joke, they say - and when the government leaders make halfhearted attempts to patch things up, they become convinced that the democratic system is unworkable." It has become the teachers' responsibility to create confidence in the young that today's government system can be made to work, Dr. Proctor said. The alternative "is nothing leys than disaster." In Canada and the U n i t e d States, he noted, "our accent is really on this life, not on any hereafter - get all you can, right now." "Conditions9 worry teachers A sampling of opinion taken during the Alberta Teachers' Association convention in Lethbridge this week indicated at least some teachers are apprehensive about school board intentions in the working out of a new contract agreement. Because the new School Act is not specific in many areas OUR OSCAR ifS' 2-24CW.V.' "There's nothing in here about Doug Walker's fence." affecting working conditions, but rather leaves them to be worked out by local boards and their employees, some teachers fear school boards may make unilateral decisions regarding working conditions, decisions not favorable to the teachers. One teacher said the main reason for the contract negotiations going to conciliation was the difficulty in reaching agreement in this area. Teachers were afraid, he said, that school boards could take advantage of the situation and impose any working conditions they wanted if these were not spelled out in the contract. Adding to teachers' apprehension was the knowledge that there was an over-supply of teachers and there might be a "squeeze" put on teachers the boards wanted to get rid of, he said. Another teacher said the boards were apparently taking an adamant stand on an issue that, by precedent, they have already accepted. There is a SHOE REPAIRS ? ?

He said he found this attitude "inexplicable" and "shocking" and wondered if the boards Intended to take advantage of the situation to reinstate the old "master-servant" relationship. Comments from other teachers indicated a lack of good faith in the contract talks. One teacher said, "We have to protect ourselves against a lack of good faith with future boards, assuming we have it now." In other countries, with different religions, the people don't care as much about this life, so don't consider mass starvation a disaster. Since Western society and economics are based on Judeo-Christian philosophy, which encourages more interest in today's life, Dr. Proctor told the teachers, it is important that they encourage their students to accept their traditional religious beliefs. A competent teacher transmits basic concepts, interest in acquisition of knowledge, and self-confidence to bis students, but only if he is performing a professional function, and not simply filling a job. "I would like to see teachers assess each student's needs and then take on the burden of professional challenge, and say, 'What can I do to ease the student's burdens, and to even things out, and to make up for hisparticular disadvant-ags,' " Dr. Proctor said. "Compassion, and the ability to see through another's eyes is what is needed most by teachers, and social renewal, social change, will automatically follow." members seem to be losing interest in club affairs," he said, "the Kinsmen clubs are larger than ever before." "If the current trend in service club membership continues interaction between the various clubs will become necessary and the Kinsmen Club will lead that interaction," be said. Mr. Reid is currently on a cross-Canada visit to Kinsmen Clubs. The purpose of the trip is to better co-ordinate the ac- BILL REID tivities of the clubs across Canada. He started his trip 26 days ago in St. John's, Newfoundland and has already visited 305 clubs. His trip is a first for a president of the Kinsmen Association and his visit Friday night marked the first time a national president has visited Lethbridge. $2,000 damage Damage totalling $2,000 resulted when four cars were in collision east of Monarch on Highway 3 Friday night. RCMP officials report the vehicles were driven by: James Chapman, Lethbridge; William Whyte, Calgary; Ed-ward Winwood, Lethbridge and Glen Baldston, Lethbridge. Poor visibility and bad road conditions are believed to have been the cause of the accident. RCMP had no details on a 13car pileup near Claresholm.
