A good amount of this criticism stems from graduates who can not find jobs and employers who complain that graduates have not been properly trained. Stu- dents specifically complain that they were misled into believing that all they had to do was go to university, get a degree and their problems would be solved. Specifically, employers complain that once they hire a university graduate, they soon discover he lacks certain skills and must be trained for the job. No doubt these criticisms are justified. However, they should not be levied at the university. To do so, presupposes that the university, and higher education in general, has as an objective, the training of people to fill the varying needs of the job mar- ket. The university never has, and hopefully it never will, take on this function. The university has only one objective: the pursuit of the truth. This pursuit is an end- less search. Only in an atmos- phere of rigorous intellectual activity will man learn more about himself, his society anc his environment. Hopefully, the determination to seek the truth will produce the kind of knowl- edge that will enable man to solve the problems of today and foresee and cope with this prob lems of tomorrow. The individual who enters a university should not expect to "Come on, Judi, quit horsing around, see how easily I got on part three Horse and rider work together And it's off into the sunset at last omerge four or five years later as a highly employable person university student shoul lave only one purpose in mine he improvement of his mine nlellect and his power of rea son. It is only this goal tha he determined student can hop to accomplish. The universal cannot promise anything, e: cept a chance to develop one intellectual capab i 1 i t i e s. surly cannot promise th graduate a job. Those who have graduated and do net have jobs have only one legitimate complaint, ie, ihey were rrisled intc believing ;hat their future would be as- sured once they graduated. Those students who are either in university now or who are planning to enter should not de- lude themselves any longer. The student maximizes his op- portunity for personal growth and development only if his ob- jectives are in rapport with the purpose of the university. The university should cease to be the recipient of the kind of criticism mentioned herein. It is simply being criticized for not accomplishing something it never professed to do in the first place. The university must continue seeking the truth.

Bob Van Schaik of 2205 9 Ave. S. arrived home from Saint Laurent with Michael Raymond of the Quebec city. The forty young people arrived in the city after touring Rocky Mountain'House, Banff and Lake Louise by Northern Bus. Tonight they make camp at the Cross Bell Ranch where Rufus Goodstriker has organized a weekend of trailing, riding and camping activities. tBienvenu, Saint Laurent roots on. it was a long stretc up to put his bridle on. Blaze was a beauty. All yo md to do was whisper to hit and he was off. galloping a only Pegasus could. Someon obviously misinformed, had tl icrve to call him a plug, anything, it took all I had, imes, to keep him at an eve trot. Riding with a saddle isn't easy or comfortable as son may think. Granted the stirru jrovide a dandy step up b once on and trotting, the bum; hat follow make life painful. The stirrups were fine f gallopping but for some re son, were a lost cause when had to trot. If the stirrup ho! were longer, my feet flailed o helplessly while a hole short cramped my legs and twist my feet. It was times like tl when I was uncertain about m role as equestrian supreme. We had reached the stage where trail rides into the cou- lees were allowed. Thursday night, we saddled up. By' this time I decided it would be easier to risk falling off rather than suffer the bumps, so I chose the bareback pad instead. Our exit was upset for a quarter of an hour by two devil- sh horses giving Ray Hunt, our instructor, a run around the rarking lot. With Ray chasing hem and our blocking the path is much as possible, they were lei-ded back into the corral. Two minutes later, we were off oping across the fields. Ray must have decided we were going to put all we had earned to practise. We some- low found every steep hill in he coulees and climbed up, down and around them. A short stop in a valley gave the horses a rest and us a chance to stretch. Ray brought Midget, a little mare, into the centre of the circle of horses and put her through her paces j with her "roll-over-dead" and I other tricks. A bow to the audi- ence completed the show. We climbed back to the top and headed back to the corral just as the sun was setting. Rid- ing at that time of the day creates such perfect paece of mind and a feeling of freedom. It was a pity to leave it behind. BEVERLY-ANN CARLSON Staff Writer "Surprisingly and regret- ably" a resurgence of ven- jeal disease infection has oc- urred during the past decade, ccording to recent statistics eleased in the July issue of he Canadian Nurse. The greatest increase in the infectious diseases, according thp magazine article, was in onorrhea which rose from a ate of 105 cases per lopulation in 1'JSS, to 150 eases >er population in 1970. This figure is still rising. Infectious syphilis has risen rom a low of less than 1 case oer in 1955-5G, to a rate f 4 per in 1970. In 1945, this figure was approximately 0 per 100.000 according to the urvey's statistics. Tot-' syphils cases includ- ng latent, congenital, primary econdary, and early infectious ases, has had an increase o rpproximately 1 per ince I960. The 1968 figure lowever, was a decrease of ap- proximately 100 per rom the 1945 rate of 105 per population. Possible reasons given to this increase include: the in crease in population with a dis proportionate increase in tin young sexually active groups, and the lengthening sex life span; Population movement be sides the vast number of inte: national travellers, there ar immigrants, migrating la bo groups, and movements c armed forces ".'ten with asso ciatcd problems of housing loneliness, language a d j u s ment, and race which ma lead to more frequent, casua or. promiscuous sexual encoun ters; A possible increase in promi cuity associated with changin standards of behavior and th use of contraceptive pills an intra-uterine devices; Ignorance lack of even th most elcmentaiy fads ji'.o the nautre of the venereal d seases; and The failure of private pra titioners treating VD cases following up the case, and co IEARN TO PLAY A GUITAR THIS SUMMER!

Treatment for the venereal seases involves penicillin in- ections for infected adults, nd application of silver trate to the eyes of ail new- orn babies in order to ward off inding effects of congentia] onorrhea, according to Ven- Disease, a pamphlet put ut by the national department health and welfare. There are two main venereal iseases gonorrhea being ie most prevalent, and syph- is being the most dangerous nd serious of the two. Both diseases may be con- racted by both sexes, but con- 'ary to popular opinion and old wives cannot be pread by contact with toilet eats, door knobs, shaking ands, handling money, library ooks, etc. S. hilis is first noticed by ae appearance of a sore, a hancre, which is painless and, may disappear, and is often ccompanied by a rash. Fol- owing the disappearance of the ymptom, the infectious germs are still increasing in number and spreading through the oody. Other symptoms of the lisease will appear and disap- >ear over the years, and the nfectcd persons may still be- ieve he or she is well. In late stages of syphilis, the infected person may be- come blind, crippled, suffer leart trouble, or experience jrain damage. The disease nay be cured at any time, but the harmful effects to the body can never be repaired. Although not as serious in its effects on the body, gonorrhea may cause sterility and arthri- tis." Although an infected male may experience symptoms of the disesse, the woman will fre- quently have no sips that she is infected, and may then pass the disease on to others. The woman may not even feel any ill effects until the di- sease spreads to internal re- productive organs. She then be- comes acutely ill, and may re- quire hospitalization with ster- ility often being the end result. Although the venereal di- seases are not hereditary in a strict sense of the word, it is possible for a pregnant woman who has untreated syphilis to pass the disease to her unborn child congenital syphilis. This may result in deformities in the child, or that the child is still-born. Gonorrhea may pass to the eyes of the unborn child, and if it remains untreated, can lead to permanent blindness of the child. not peeking at her wedding dress.
