14 THE IE1HBRIDCE HERAID Frldoy, July 21, 197J ivinct Marianne ate pickled snails on exchange trip to Quebec Dy Jt'DE TUItIC Herald Stall Writer Marianne de Heer's interests and abilities in the language field led lo a recent exchange trip to Quebec, and a bout with snails. A student of the Lelhhridge Collegiate Institute, 15-year-old Marianne, was entered as a possible participant in the Ca- nadian Council of Christians and Jews student exchange pro- gram. The program, Francophone- Anglophone, has been sponsor- ed by the council for 18 years, and is meant to promote belter understanding and appreciation of Canada's two major culture groups, and encourage biling- ualism. "I had to fill out a long said Marianne, "with all my likes and dislikes, age, how much French I knew "The council finds suitable partners for the ones they pick as exchange students, and (hey let you know in June." Marianne received her letter of acceptance at the end of May, and left on the two-week exchange visit June 26. "When I found out I was she said, "I was jump- ing up and down. It was real exciting, I was real happy. "I'd never even been to Sas- kalchewan." Another Lcthbridge girl, Les- lie Irvine of LCI, was also chosen to go east. Students from Taber, Calgary and Med- icine Hat, took part in the pro- gram. "We all travelled by bus to said Marianne, "and by train for three days and two nights to Montreal." Marianne said she continued ner trip up the Gaspe Bay coast, to the town of Bale Com- eau where she was to live with the Rousseau family, and her exchange partner, Francine. During her stay, Marianne said she first had 'lo "get used to (he family and settle in." The customs of the French- Canadian family were not so different from those Marianne was used lo iu her own home, although "their food tastes are different." "They like said Marianne, "and eat Ihem as delicacies. They're pick led, gray and taste horrible. They're oli muscle, and you have lo chew Ihem because they're so rubbery.'1 Francine Rousseau took Mar- ianne on several sight seeing trips in and around the town which included the large recre- ation centre, the Quebec paper mill, and a large dam. "We spent weekends at the family said Marianne, "about 20 miles up the coast. "The scenery is beautiful, and on a clear day, you can see the other side of the St. Law- rence. It's close enough lo watch the large ships coming and going up the coast." She said she noticed there were no "poor sections in the all the houses were either middle or upper class homes, and "almost everybody owned a chalet outside of town." Communicating wilh Fran- cine and Ihe family was the most difficult part of the visit, as "they speak so fast." "I learned a lot while I was there, and it'll all help me in French classes next year.

Campus Corner By CATHIE RETI Herald Staff Writer Cathie is a journalism stu- dent at LCC, working al The Herald for summer.) Summers in soulhern Alberta are usually filled with dust, the smell of hot dogs and cotton candy, and the cheers, moans and groans of those viewing the excitement going on around them. And where else could all of taking place than at a rodeo or this be taking place than at a rodeo or exhibition? Thrill seekers, animal lovers, the money hungry and just be- where the crowd is and everybody's doing it persons join the parade of around and around the midway we go. Most fairgoers take a stroll down Youngstreet in the Youth- arma building during Days, commenting on the paint- ings on the floor, examining ar- ticles in the booths, and stop- ping to chat with friends and acquaintances. A trip through the school art displays, and art lovers stop- ping to gaze at drawings, paintings and pottery, and arc given .a chance to mess with the brush. Alberta's agricultural proj- ects are displayed in vast Quan- tities throughout the pavilion, people slop lo enter their names in free draws for froicn frerch fries or turkeys. Round and round and round she goes in the Casino lo see if Ihe wheel can beat your hand in the money making card games. Screams, shouls, oohs and aahs are heard throughout the midway from those chanc- icg a ride on one of Ihe fasL- moving metal contraptions, or from those who dizzily put their feet solidly on the ground once again. Step right up! Loop the bol- tle! Put the ball in Ihe basket! Knock the milk botlles over! Chip Ihe plate! Everyone vans! And a few happy souls wait away clutching fuzzy animals, or hanging onto cheap glass- ware. The Whoop-Up Saloon draws those thirsty persons looking for a bit of refreshment, even though the opening days of Ihe exhibition have been colder than the beer has been. Usually there's dust and ex- citement. This year there's mud and if the weather clears- up we'll go attitude. Fair enthusiasts, however, still make their way into the grounds to take in whatever they want. Nothing not even rain can keep some people away.

They were searched and all personal belongings were confiscated. They ate in a dining room with actual mental patients. The "Etaft" treated Ihe "pa- tients" just as they would treat patients in their wards. They gave tokens as rewards and took away tokens as punish- ment. Interviews afterward showed the experience was reah'slic and often frightening. A question- naire filled out by participants also demonsrtated its realism. The patients were anxious, angry and restless.
