(CP) High school students in south- western Ontario are getting a novel lock at Canadian his- tory through the work of young performers. The three actors and two actresses, membtis of Theatre London, use comedy, drama, songs, mime and readings to take a fast look at Canada's history. The 80-minute show begins with John Cabot's royal com- mission to explore and moves through the saga of the Cana- dian beaver, an Indian crea- tion legend, and a dramatic presentation of the plight and pathos of Louis Kiel, all tied into a tight format.

Louise Laqua, Chinook Area camp advisor, Chris Lethbridge Division camp ad- visor, and their husbands, William and Dennis, will ac- company the girls on their winter excursion. Mrs. Laqua says their only equipment will be lean to shelters, made of Egyptian cotton, and plastic baker tents. Fire embers, set at the entrance of each shelter, will provide the only source of heat. Cooking will be limited to outdoor cement stoves. A similar girls' camp for those familiar with only summer camping will be held March 21 to 23. own stage, which can be set up in about half an hour in a school gymnasium, where up to 500 students can watch the show. The performance often takes a tongue-in-cheek atti- tude towards history, with a mock-newsreel sequence out- lining an unlikely format for the War of 1812, in which the American invaders are ousted after being clobbered by Laura Secord armed with a box of candy. However, the show has its serious moments, including a dramatic recitation of Kiel's speech to the jury at his trea- son trial. The high-school audiences follow the action carefully, and although some jokes go over most heads, the entire show is well received. The show is sponsored by THE BETTER HALF Theatre London, a profes- sional theatre group sup- ported by subscription, public grants and private funds. There is a nominal charge for the production, but the money is used to cover ex- penses. Teachers say the show serves a good purpose by tak- ing some of the dryness from the usual history courses. The young actors use a minimum of props to set off their performance and Mr. Gardner's guitar and a couple of drums provide the music. Dancing, laughing, running and above all, enjoying, The Young Company produces a polished show. The group hopes to expand the program into other sub- jects and give a more re- gional outlook to theatre in the area. By Barnes STUDENTS 224-75___________________________ _ Inc. ANSWERS ON REVERS!

Young people praised NEW YORK (CP) Post- master-General Bryce Mack- asey of Canada proclaimed his faith this week in the young people of today because "they care more about people than things." In an address to the Cana- dian Club, he noted that SO per cent of today's labor force is under 30, a generation school- ed in skepticism and recon- ditioned to change. Their at- titudes differed from those of the generation before them. "People say the young re- ject authority and the work ethic. Authority, yes. The work ethic, no. It's not the concept of work the young are rejecting.' It's the workplace."
