The past school year, 1972- 73, has been a banner year for us at Kate Andrews High School in Coaldale. It's been a year of memories and achievements in many different fields. In the field of school sports, our achievements were the most notable in our 12-year his- tory. It all began last fall when our football "Spartans" under coach Les Santa began on a winning note and went on to capture the Foothills Foot- ball League Champions h i p without suffering one defeat. Spartan tailback, G e r hard Schmold, was easily the top performer in the 10 team league scoring touchdowns at the torrid rate of three per game. Gerhard's scoring and rushing records were the talk of the league. Other outstand- ing performers were: Ernie Granson, Barry Ontkean, Wayne Oliver and Brian King. The Kate Andrews Gaels bas- ketball team caught on to the winning spirit and swished their way to their second consecu- tive Southwest Conference Bas- ketball title. Under coach Labo- levech the Gaels made history by winning their first ever Provincial "B" Boys Basket- ball Championship in Calgary. It was our biased feeling that Ed Dick was the best high school basketball player in Al- berta, and our feelings were confirmed when Ed was unan- imously selected as top per- former in the provincial finals. Great efforts were also regis- tered by Werner Schmiegelt, Kate Andrews has always been noted for its pretty girls and one of the prettiest, Karen Boulton, was selected as this years Alberta Dairy Queen Princess (she's the one who does the sexy milk commercial on We wish her luck as she goes on to compete in the Canadian finals at the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto! this fall. Drama has always been big at Kate Andrews under thes pian teacher Frank Feather- stone. We weren't able to take part in this year's high schoo drama competitions due to the strike, but our kids put on a series of plays at the Yates Centre that was well-received. And, we'll be heard from next year. This was the year in which Robert Girbav won awards in the field of Creative writing. His short story was selected Tkle.

Phonn 328-4080 Pop festivals are valuable LONDON (Reuter) _ Pop music festivals are a valuable form of recreation in which young people share a great spirit of togetherness, says an official British government report. A government committee set up 10 months ago to in- vestigate the festivals said the open-air pop concerts "are gatherings of pre- dominantly we'1-behaved young people of above-aver- age intelligence intensely in- terested in the entertainment provided." "We do not subscribe to the view which millions do that tens of thousands of young people wanting to gather to- gether in one place for four days at a time away from their parents is in itself cor- rupting and evil." Evidenca given the investi- gators by a church group says "public parks and benches are dens of iniquity compared with the visible physical contact on the pop festival site." marriage LONDON (Reuter) People educated in mixed schools are more likely to have happy marriages than those from single-sex schools, according to the results of a survey in a government- backed publication issued to- day Writing in Educational Re- search, Bardnard Atherton, headmaster of a boys' school in South London, said he spent 12 years researching the backgrounds of more than 2.500 married couples. "Co-education is associated with marital happiness. Single-sex education is a psy- chologically harmful setting likely to damage personality said Atherton. He added. "Convent edu- cated women were compared with non-convent educated and the former were less hap- pily married than the latter." And the longer people stayed at single-sex schools the more likely they were to have unstable marriages. "'Of those who had been at secondary schools for five years or more the co-ed group were happier than those who had attended single-sex schools." Atherton said. Sunhine Players entertain Before school broke up for the summer the students of Lokeview School were entertain- ed by the Sunshine Players '73 a 10-mem- ber Lethbridge Oppor- tunities for Youth pro- ject. The troupe put ort two plays for the city elementary school child- ren entitled The Treat- ment and The Cantina. The OFY group is now in rehearsal for district tours beginning July 3, to visit Brooks, Taber, Pincher Creek, Clares- holm, Vulcan, New Day- ton, and the Crowsnest Pass. They also plan to perform before the in- mates o f Drumheller Penitentiary, young peoole between the ages of 12 and 15 moy join a droma work- shop with the Sunshine Players, starting July 23 at the Bowman Arts Centre. A fee of will be levied for materials to make masks and pup- pets. Course number is limited to 20.

If Aida, at 13. happened to win three firsts in the 1973 Ki- wanis Music Festival and claimed the Cotsworth Clark Cup as intermediate piano champion, it was only fate. If _Tosca, who wants you to she's going on 11, plays the cello so well she was 1969 Toronto Conservatory medal wir.ncr for Grade 1, that's the way things happen. And if, as part of their paren- tal duties, Larry and Margaret seem to spend half their lives driving to and from music les- sons and orchestra practices, it isn't because they planned it. Not about ouU Larry thinks it is normal for a father and mother to be pre- pared to expend so much time, energy and, of course, money to give their daughters an ex-' cellent music education. After all, he meets so many other parents who are doing the j same thing. In that crowd, it isn't regarded as unusual for a father to buy a station wagon because IV daughter has that they're unhappy, the way things started cello lessons. She ob- viously can't take the in- strument on the bus. And to whip home after work every night so you can whoosh off downtown with one or another of your daughters is just about as normal as it can be for a parent with mu- sical children. In the summer, for a week or both girls are off to the Courtenay Musk Camp. They get another two or three weeks vacation with their parents- while the music teachers are on vacation. "It's a year-round said Mr. Ma. And he really doesn't mind. "When they started their les- began at 3'i and Aida quite young as re- alized what it would mean to me and I felt quite prepared to j make the effort." he said. The background of Larry and Margaret, who brought their family to Vancouver from Hong Kong in 1965, is not all that mu- sical. "I love he said. "I like to go to the symphony and just relax and listen. But that's about all. Margaret once played the piano.'' "But only as a little she added. Predictably, both children want to be professional musi- cians. Aida wants to be a pianist while Tosca favors the cello. But the mystery remains: How did Aida and Tosca get their names if there was no in- tent to turn them into musical prodigies? "It's always seemed a very simple explanation to said j Mr. Ma. "We started with the letter A. since she was our first child, and we picked Aida be- cause it's not only the name of an opera but also the name of a princess. "Then we knew we were go- ing to have a second child and I said: 'Well, if our first daughter is named after an opera, let's call the second one, if we have a daughter, Tosca.' "And that's how it happenad. Nothing mysterious about it."
