The students raised over to cover expenses for their enterprise education program. Faulds, Photo family life No handouts for these youngsters! By MAUREEN JAMIESON Family Editor At yesterday afternoon, Grade 3 students from Gilbert Paterson School bounded a b o a r d a bus they had hired p.nd paid for themselves, and set out on a trip to tiie Maclecd Museum. "I'm a strong believer in re- ceiving education by visiting different said teacher Emma-Jean Bokovoy. "They carried on expert- ments with this kind of thing in Chicago and found it even raised the level of intelligence. "This was made very plain to i me when we visited Ellison EATO N'S Ulills, and all these other. During a trip to Ellison Mill- thu class has toured.

The class has visited tlie city police and RCMP stations, along with many local indus- Iries including Calelli Habitant Lethbridge Concrete Swifts, Canadian Western Seed Processors, she said. "If the children are really in- terested, these businesses in LethbridgD really go out of their way {or us. They're very, very co-operative, and make their business very, very plain for the children." One businessman, said Miss Bokovoy, was so impressed by the enthusiasm of her students, he p i 1 e d them into three cars and took them to see the source Simmons Adjusto-Rest Coil Mattresses Ths Ostermoor beautiful Deauville cover.

"I laid the groundwork when the days were she said, "and they know what to do, what to ex- pect, and what to ask lor." A visit to the classroom, list- ening to the students talk about their tours and leafing through their carefully-kept notebooks is an illuminating experience. The youngsters display a wide knowledge of the functions of civic officials, the operation of local businesses, and an ex- tensive vocabulary.

For their next science pro- iect, students mixed the flour and yeast with a few other in- gredients, waited for a reaction, proved that carbon dioxide was generated, then baked the mix- ture. The result was buns and jam. How did the children get the money to cover expenses? The education department cannot afford to underwrite the pro- gram, said Miss Eokovpy, and the class scorned asking for handouts. "I rolled 500 pounds of pa- said Eric, "and made Everyone helped."

"We made over 560. I think that's pretty good for eight- year-olds, don't by MAUREEN JAM1ESON MOW DO YOU COPE with a socially-imaccepiable cat? Until the Duke strolled regally through our door tlirea years ago, and took over house, family and refrigerator, I had disliked cats, thinking them pretty insipid animals. Insipid the Duke is not. It took him a while to get us fully trained, but now it's pretty obvious to everyone we know who's boss around our place. Certainly no one else is so picky about food, and none of us lias the nerve to take over Ihe chair he has appropriated for his own use. He's also laid down certain ground rules. No car rides, no fish only one kind of cat food, no other feline intruders and double helpings of Kentucky Fried Chicken, which he can smell about four blocks away. On the other hand, he's pretty long-suffering for a ty- rant. While he goes out of his skull it anyone brings another animal around, lie submits to being dressed in doll clothes and wheeled around in a buggy. I have seen Mm ignominious- ly picked up by his tail, without demur, and hidden under clothing, he has been smuggled into schools, movie houses and beds without a single meow. What's more, the day I fell over him and broke his tail, all he did was swear pretty strongly, which was a relief be- cause I was fully expecting to be torn to shreds. The Duke is the neighborhood swinger, frequently stag- gering home with an ear that needs stitching back on, or an abcess in need of lancing. That's why the ear is on his no-no list. It usually means a visit to his bitterest enemy the vet. On the other hand, the vet is never particularly happy to see the Duke either. His lordship, expressing himself in no uncertain terms, stamps his feet, cusses and hollers at Ite top of his lungs, disrupting all the other patients. They part with mutual relief. Re the shady side of his character several people in our area are beginning to assume martyred looks when tliey see us coming these days. We have a neighbor down the road apiece, where he used to stop in for a snack and a gossip with the cat of the house. Last year, for some unknown reason, the Duke took a big, enthusiastic bite out of our neighbor, which left her hobbling around with an infected leg for abcut six months. I talked myself into believing it was an accident, but then he turned around and bit her arm, which was also out of ac- tion for a while. Yesterday was the straw that broke the camel's back. He visited, was courteously made at home, invited to dine and threw up all over the place. Another home-from-home where be is no longer welcome, is our back-ail ey neighbor who left a chicken to cool on her kitchen counter. The Duke looked in, "figured it was a sitting duck, and got the bird! To tell the truth, even our relatives are becoming dis- enchanted witli our cat. Last winter, my mother came soiling through the door In a fur coat. Duke took one look and his fur stood on end. Tail twitching with rage, and screaming insults, he leapt up and took a fair-sized chunk out of her anatomy. Mother was not happy especially when, defending his lordship, we insinuated the coat was dead cat. Deep down, though, we're all very attached to the which is just as well, considering that paying for damage and keeping him In fried chicken keeps our budget running in glorious technicolor like red!
