Every year, couniVss seem to have trouble someone they want to t.r They don't know the number of person 'hey do warn reach, or they 'get all e.xciu-d over some catastrophe, av.d forget Ihe numbers that be at the lop of their heads, or at least listed in a convenier-.r place. Take lor example Miss Jor.es. She wanted to talk to another girl in town that she had never talked lo by phor.e before. So she did the proper ininc. End looked up the name in the tele- phone directory. The last four numbers were 3124. She said them through her head a couple of times, and was just about to dial the num- ber, when little brother came in bragging about the big frog he had found in the garden. After she finished examining the frog with her brother, she returned to make her call. Miss Jones picked up the phone and dialed 3214. Instead of hearing the cheerful voice of the girl she had wanted to talk to. an upset elderly lady practically screamed at her, told her no one of that name lived there, and slammed the receiver down on her ear. So she decided to try again, without consulting the direc- tory. She dialed M12. On the end of tire phone she got the voice of a young man, who also bid her no one of that name lived there, but said everyone can make mistakes. After a little chitchat, he de- ui touch ho years i -YI> imponnn: A i.-.ond K its [old' ivi-d in Edmonton, or him kiichKi. the Jones family decided I hoy had belter have a raivorsation about telephone They divided they should kivp a liM of most used num- bers.

After consulting with various i other acquaintances, Mr. Jones i discovered lliis person had lived in various cities in the! past few years, and through several long distance phone calls, Mr. Jones finally diseov- ered the person he was try- ing to contact lived in the same city now, as he did.

Phone 327-1222 worth of long distance calls, Mr. Jones discovered his friend j had already gotten the mes- sage he had been trying to get to him. The moral of the story is, Mr. Jones should have dialed his operator, and asked if his ac- quaintance had a listing in that city. Or any other city. A third telephone failure hap- pened to Mrs. Jones. She in the kitchen deep-frying po- tatoes in a large kettle of lard. Through some misfortune, lard spilled on the flames, and flames started lo spread throughout the kitchen. Mrs. Jones not having the fire department's number at her finger tips, shrieks and screams spread throughout the house and neighborhood. After fumbling through Iho kitchen, Mrs. Jones found her telephone directory in the bot- tom of a drawer, and she turned to the front of the book to consult the list of impor- tant numbers, she discovered that no one had bothered lo write them down. After thumbing through he pages, with the flames ripping through her kitchen, Mrs. Jones found the number and called ihe fire department, only to discover Iliat some watchful neighbor had already notified them.

Maximilian of Wied states that, before the Siksika divided into separate bands, the Siksika, the Kainah and the Piegans were encamped in the neighborhood of live or six tents of Kutenais. Some of the Kainah killed the Kutenais, took the scalps, stain- ed their faces and hands with the blood and then relumed to the camp. Disputes arose in consequence of this action; the Indians separated from each other and The Kainah or Kainai received the name of Bloods. Capitol Furniture (I-c t h- bridge) Ltd.. 326 5lh SI.

MA Iltralrl Staff Wilier Tlw drop-out rntc of students at tlw Lelhbridne Community College school of nursing hns been avcra.einr; .10 per cent a year in ils first three years oi operation, a rale described ns "absolutely normal." LOC began ndinJtUng nursing students in the fall of 1969 with a 36-student first year class. In Ihe 1970-71 academic year, there were 25 second-year stu- dents and 53 first year stu- dents. In 1971-72, there were 39 continuing studenls nnd 51 new students. For 1972-73, the pro- jected enrolment of new stu- dents is 80, and 34 are second year studenls. The rate of first year drop- outs was 30 per cent, 26 per cent and 33 per cent for 1969-70, 1970-71 and 1971-72 respectively. This compares with a 50 per cent drop-out rate at the Gait School of Nursing attached to the Lethbridge Municipal Hos- pital, and a 10 per cent rate at the St. Michael's Hospital School of Nursing. The St. Michael's Hospital School of Nursing is conduct- ing its last third year class with 33 students in the aca- demic year of 1972-73. It will be phased out after the sum- mer of next year in line wilh the provincial trend of turning over the responsibility of nurs- ing education to provincial post-secondary educational in- stitutions. The problems at the Gait School of Nursing are the most serious ol the three in the city and they have been dealt with In an earlier article in The Herald. Sister Ann Marie Cummings, director of the LCC school of nursing, said the reasons of first year drop-nut include: Transfer to other pro- grams at the LCC Not interested in nursing any more Academic difficulties Illnesses Husbands transfer to other cities Marriage Discontinued "As a community" college, our admission policy is differ- ent from that of the Gait School of Nursing and the St. Michael's Hospital School of Nursing." Sister Ann explained. "We don't have n screening policy nnd admission is made oil a firsl-comc, firsl-servod basis for I hose who meet tbr minimum she said. This year, the projected first ycnr admission is RO a.nd only (he first 60 who applied and mot the minimum requir- menls would be admitted. The Herald lalkcd lo gradu- ates and sludenls of Ihe LCC school of nursing. They prefer- red lo remain anonymous. Few serious problems were reported. One problem which occurred two years afio iv.ns the dismissal of Iwo instructors who were well-liked by the stu- dents, but Ihe instructors were dismissed despite student oppo- sition. One student said the two-year instruction "provides the bare minimum" of meeting nurse registration requirements and there could he improvements in the curriculum. Both Sister Ann and Ihe stu- dents said the students do not have a direct say in the design of the courses, although stu- dents are inviled to offer sug- gestions at the end of a sem- ester. There is a working arrange- ment problem between the LCC and the LMH. The LMH refus- es to let LCC nursing studenls practice at ihe Uffl as part of their training, on the grounds that the Gait School of Nursing have to practise there. LCC nursing students, how- ever, can practise at the St. Michael's hospital. After the St. Michael's Hospital School of Nursing is phased out, more tr.iining facilities at that hos- pital will be available to LCC students. LCC nursing graduales said they find no difficulty in find- ing employment. Drop-out rate The drop out rates at the city's three schools of nursing are: 50 per cent at the Leth- bridge Municipal Hospital School of Nursing; 30 per cent at the Lelhbridge Community College school of nursing: anil 10 per cent at the St. Michael's Hospital School of Nursing.
