Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 23, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID Friday, July 23, 1971 Ross Erickson DIDJA SEE ME DAD, HUH? DIDJA SEE ME? The ex ciled voices of children be they happy, sad, tired or are all part of the atmosphere of Whoop-Up Days, and Douglas Goldie was no exception to the rule as he came bounding down to see if his dad had watched Stuart Sehram Peggy Sehram Theresa Bourne Wade Hornberger him on the Till-A-Whirl. The fast pace of most of the rides usually doesn't phase the kids themselves, but as Ross Erickson ran down the ramp of the Rollo Plane, his older brother said, "it doesn't scare him, but it sure scares me." Comments from other children ranged from to it's better than last year." But even the bra can be un-nerved by the Zipper, a new parting comment of Wade was "Mommy I want to see vest of the kiddies midway ride. as he left the LEISTER'S MUSIC LTD. Campus Corner By SIMON RUDDEL University of B.C. Town madness has once again reached its yearly high in Leth- bridge. Crazy days are here again better known as Whoop Up Days. The week making up Whoop- Up Days is distinct in that things get less and less insane as time wears on. In other words by the end of the week- life is pretty well back to nor- mal once again and Monday morning is easier to take. We find that we have some- how slipped back into a some- what more balanced life with- out even knowing it. The reason for this is probablv that the parade is at the start of it all. Where else? The parade Oh the Parade! what really shows the stu- pidity dormant in most of us. We have all seen it at least once and that should be enough for anyone. We always swear that never again will we swelter in the streets and waste a perfect- ly gorgeous morning. "Nevertheless, we cannot re- sist the temptation just to have a peek at something which al- ways looks the same. Any change in any parade is negli- gible, unless it fails to come around the corner for the first time in your life. Thus each year a lot of peo- ple come to watch another lot of masochists march around the town with horses, drums and you name the while pretending they are just there to give the kids a look. Now we come to the rodeo. We always come to the rodeo. Well why not? One reason is that you always end up sitting beside someone who saw it all the week before in Calgary. You are reminded that you lave never seen the Calgary Stampede. Somehow the reply that you have never seen it due to the fact that you see it all in Lethbridge each year, never seems Quite adequate. The only possible explanation for all this of course is that we need an excuse to have a fair. I'm willing to bet that if the rodeo and the parade and any- thing else fell through it would be fine with everybody as long as we had the fair. Now any fair is just as insane as the rest of Whcop Up Days. It is the one time of the year when one will spend a lot of money that would normally go into city parking meters and none of us mind a bit at the time. Crazy? The most you will have to show for it besides sore feet is a couple of teddy bears and maybe a copper horse measur- ing two inches by three inches. But who cares? It's a lot of fun and for the first time in the whole thing yen are actuary taking part. That is the secret of why Whoop Up days get off the ground at all. If you are in it you are taking part and that is where the fun comes in. That is why if you are not ac- tively involved in a particular part of it all you see no reason for its existence. Your part re- mains vitally important to you though. The fair is everyone's bag and is proportionately popu- lar. The other activities are more personal but are just as important to those responsible for them. So if they have fun doing then- then surely they're worth doing Even if it is once a year, every year. win rr j-amily Exchange students take plane tour By BEVERLY-ANN CARLSON Staff Writer HEY, THERE'S YOUR HOUSE Students participating in the Saint-Laurent Lethbridbe student exchange pro- gram crane their necks to get the best view of the city, Thursday, as they were treated to an air tour of the city.
