Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 8, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta MILDRED HARKER photo Magrulh High S-chool achievers Junior ochievers at Magrath overcome initial geranium setback to succeed in garden project at the Garden C'ity. Mrs. Fletcher leads way to success with seedlings By MILDRED HAREKR Herald News Service MAGRATH The Magrath High School Junior Achieve- ment class has achieved a great deal this year. These students, in accounting and office practise, won the Na- tional Product of the Year Con- test with owls they made of wool and driftwood. Boise Cascade achievers helped them get started. Their second project was fi- bre glass poodles These were well accepted and sold at a profit. Their final effort was green- house plants. In the picture four members shown re- potting tomatoe plants they grew in Mrs. Ruby Fletcher's basement with grow lights. A total of geraniums were grown from quarter-inch slips they started there. When space and air were at a premium they put 400 of the larger plants outside to harden. Wind blew the plastic cover- ing off and frost came later to damage the plants so a fibre glass enclosure was made to prevent further loss. Jolin Davidson School loses friend in Siebert COALDALE (HNS) A dinner honoring Jacob Sie- bert on his retirement as cus- todian of the John Davidson School here was recently Posted by the school staff. Mr. Siebert has been school custodian for the past 21 years and is retiring at the end of this school term. Accompanying Mr. Siebert e r e his wife and their daughter, Mrs. Rose Bauer. She has assisted with custo- dial duties in recent years. Guests included former and present teachers, three who came on staff at the same time as Mi-. Siebert. Highlight of the evening was the talk by Peter Slem- ko, school principal. He remarked on the good fortune of the teachers to have had a custodian who looked upon his work as be- ing more than just a job. For a Good Selection of BEDDING-OUT PLANTS Including: TOMATOES CUCUMBERS PETUNIAS MARIGOLDS GERANIUMS BEGONIAS GARDEN MUMS see the wide variety avai'able now at DAN'S 68EENHOUSI Located east of the Stockyards on Mwy. 3 OPEN DAIIY 9 A.M. TO 9 P.M. INCLUDING SUNDAY Mr. Siebert always showed an interest in teachers and pupils and a willingness to help them through many dif- ficulties. During the earlier years, custodian, teachers, pupils and community volunteers assisted in landscaping the school grounds. This work in- cluded the earth fill opera- tions and tree planting. Such activities fostered a closer relationship between these groups, said Mr. Slem- ko. It was noted Mr. Siebert took special pains to beautify the front grounds. "Tv'e all look back on many happy and worthwhile years and thank Mr. Siebert for his efforts in looking after the needs of the school." As a token of their appre- ciation the guests presented Mr. Siebert with a wallet. In his reply Mr. Siebert ad- dressed himself to the teach- ers as "my dear friends." Having been a teacher be- fore his immigration to Can- ada, he said, "Though it re- quired considerable effort to accept my place as custo- dian, your attitude and con- sideration over the years have done much to alleviate the painful effects of this change in position." Despite the setback, 910 ge- raniums were supplied for Mother's Day in Magrath and surrounding towns. A total of 550 tomatoe and cabbage plants, 280 petunias, 420 asters and 60 pepper plants were grown. A variety of test plants pro- vided good experience. Bill Whitburn of Calgary sup- plied valuable information and tips along with the geranium slips Sunrise Ranch of Coaldale also gave valuable help. Books have been kept and plans made in school classes under the direction of Mrs. Ruby Fletcher, commercial ails teacher. Projects were carried out in the Industrial Arts building and her basement which students enlarged to have space. They took orders for plants and learned much from actual involvement in starting from seed in cornel mix, epsom salts and fertilizer. This wealth of experience will help them to a more suc- cessful venture next year when equipment purchased will not be a loss.

Don't surrender your dream' MAGRATH (HNS) The Ma- grath High School graduation banquet featured three valedic- torians with less tban one per- cent difference in scholastic achievement. Mary Ellen Thompson, Rudy Kulcsar and Bill Leishman represented the Grade 12 class. Miss Thompson stated "life is what you make it each proves it. With more fields of work than ever before and rapid progress, challenges should be to make men think beyond their needs. Three rules for an ultimate goal of success are: Go on. Go on. Go on. Live all your life not just a part. Live for a purpose don't just Rudy Kulcsar told gradu- ates: "You hold tomorrow in the palm of your hand. You can change your dreams to re- ality. We are not here to dream and drift, there are strong loads to lift. Faint not. tomorrow comes the song. The achieve- ments of the doers, like the rockets to the moon, started as dreams." Bill Leishman informed the large audience that graduation is not a destination, just a mile- stone. Choosing a goal can be a difficult decision but, "Bless- ed is he who has found his work." Whatever course, there are critics so it requires cour- age and belief for a successful venture. Today is as much a part of eternity as the past or the future so we should set high goals and strive diligently to achieve." The program included a read- ing by Thomas Carter; clarinet quartet performance by Janet Bullock, Debra Fletcher, Den- ise Hamilton, William Alston; and a trumpet duet by Neil and Lance Harker. Dr. Calvin R. Durfey. co-or- dinator of instruction for the Cardston school division, gave the address to the graduates. He cautioned, "Don't forget the lessons of today and the challenges of tomorrow. They have all helped make you and give you opportunities. This is the beginning of a journey. "Heaven is not reached by a single bound, we reach it round by round." He suggested three steps for success: Choose your goal and head in the right direction, choosing well between possibili- ties, and have faith in y.our- self, don't surrender your dream. There is no shame in having tried and failed for it takes courage to try. "If you shoot at the sun you may hit a star." Dr. Durfey cited the story of Helen Keller who would not ac- cept the limitations of her physical disabilities. "Pray not for tasks equal to your power but for power equal to the tasks. Keep your mind on your goal and your hand will reach it. Tonight is the time to look both ways back for what you have learned and forward with resolution to achieve. Build the ladder by which you rise." Diplomas were awarded by divisional schoc! board mem- ber Glen Powlesland with con- gratulations from Dr. Durfey. principal Grant Wheeler, school board members S. C. Brewer- ton. Eric Hohm and Ted Haynes, vice-principal. The graduates joined in a chorus conducted by Mrs. Grant Wheeler and accompan- ied by Kennedy Jensen. Prayers were by Kenneth Hillmer and Richard Ponomar. 'Pass camp shelters open BLATRMORE (CNP Bureau) Camp shelters in the 'Pass are now open. All necessary repairs and work has been done to the units, including painting, clean- up and provision of firewood. Many people are making good use of the campgrounds but some vandalism has been noted already. Crews are gravelling sec- tions of the Adanac road. Some old, abandoned gravel pits, along the Allison Creek road, are being contoured to the surrounding land in prep- aration for seeding with grass. Scouting CA. Weekes Ross Gibb of Taber tells us an introduction to the "Bcav- ering" and Encounter Wild- erness" programs in the Boy Scout movement highlighted the 17th annual meeting of the Flatlands District. Regional executive director Bob Jenkins of Lethbridge discussed the Beaver gram for boys five through seven years of age, noting the popularity of this family activity in the three Leth- bridge "ponds" in Beaver "colonies" and indicted that the program could be intro- duced to Taber this year. Fred Curtis, assistant di- rector of the wilderness pro- gram in the Calgary region, explained the experience of basic mountaineering skills in training and field camping. He showed a profusion of slides taken last summer of the Wilderness Encounter groups from Calgary. Region president Claude Leeks of Taber noted the ex- cellence of leadership and participation of Flatlands Dis- trict amongst the 14 districts comprising the Southern Al- berta Region. He indicated some "big things" to come in scouting this year. The election of officers saw J. W. (Jack) Gray returned to office as president Of the district, with new faces Ken- neth G. Furgason and Ed- ward J. Shimbashi as vice- presidents and Mmrray Roeh- ellt as treasurer and finance director. Retaining office are R. W.

Achiever dollar earns ,36 TABER (HNS) How is five per cerfl per month interest as an investment return? President Cecelie Williams recently announced to the shareholders of JACO Plastics that each dollar invested in the junior achievement company last October has earned 36 cents during the seven months' life of the company. JACO Plastics purchased raw materials, made and marketed key chains. Selling for S1.25 each, the 433 key chains return- ed against cost of materi- als of Overhead, shop and office supplies, salaries and commis- sions, and reporting expenses brought the net profit to some which was returned to the 91 shares of capital stock at an increase of 36 cents per share. Under national regulations, junior achievement companies are organized each fall in high schools across the country and are dissolved before the sum- mer vacation period. JACO Plastics was the only company in communities out- side the cities. It reported the highest participation of achiev- ers in Alberta. Arrangements are already under way for the formation of two companies here next school year. Projects are also now being determined. Junior Achievement in Taber was organized under the super- vision of an adult board of di- rectors, had its own admini- strative organization, and four adult volunteers acted as ad- visers to the company's 15 members.
