Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 15, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, June 15, 1973 THI LETHMIDOt HMALD 3 Good advice Richard Buswell of Fort Mqcleod, former Foremost School teacher, urged grad- uates recently to continue to expand their minds. Other photo: Edwin Strom- smoe, valedictorian, and Brenda Haraga, class hist- orian. Deficit eased by young citizens Walkers aid Foremost Ice Arena FOREMOST (Special) The recent Foremost Elks Lodge walkathon raised more than towards the deficit in operating expenses at the Fore- most Ice Arena. About 60 people, mostly youngsters, took part in the 20- mile hike from a point near Skiff to the community hall here. When Cub leader Irene Wall: man saw five-year-old Jodi Trekofski walking along on her toes, about five miles from the finish, she asked why. "Because my back feet the young girl replied. Nevertheless, with encour- agement from Mrs. Wallman, and her father over the last leg, Jodi was one of the many who completed the whole jour- ney, either running, walking, stumbling or limping. First finishers this year were 10-year-old Dana Cover- dale and eight-year-old Geoffrey Tagg. They walked together most of the way. They completed the course in just over five hours, finishing more than two miles ahead of their nearest challengers. Under almost ideal weather conditions, check points were set up along the route and re- freshments served by members of the Foremost Elks. The organization this .year was under the direction of Yosh Kabayama. Tast is a dream., future a wish' By GEOFF TAGG Special Correspondent FOREMOST "You are looking backwards and for- wards Richard Buswell of Fort Macleod told 26 graduates of the Foremost High School at their recent spring commencement. Mr. Buswell, a former teach- er at the Foremost School, told the capacity crowd of an old Arab proverb which states, "That which is past is a dream; that which is to come is a wish." He said the dream Is ever present influencing the wish, and "we are therefore able to look backwards and forwards simultaneously." Mr. Buswell urged the duates to continue to expand their minds through criti- cal self-evaluation. This ability is there to be used, and students should strive to increase their capacity for ideas. He went on to speak of a number of warning signs that might inhibit such a develp- ment, including complacency, laziness, fears of various types, fatalistic beliefs, impatience and pursuit of happiness. In a humorous address, well- interspersed with anecdotes, Mr. Buswell urged the gradu- ates to go forward into life and meet its challenges. "You are what you he told them. In a brilliant valedictory speech, Student Union presi- dent Edwin Stromsmoe chal- lenged students to fulfil the class motto, "The rain is searching for its sea, and I my destiny." He told his fellow graduands they are masters of their own destiny. Man's advances in the last decade are greater than in any other period of history but their potential as graduates was still unlimited. He warned students against setting goals that are too low lest they fail to reach their full potential He also warned against setting them too high and unattainable. "It is the attitude with which Bradshatv gone forever Fire of undetermined origin recently destroyed the last landmark at Bradshaw. The Magrath volunteer fire department responded to keep the blaze under control. At one time Highway 5 went through Magrath and south of Bradshaw, a thriving little community. Now there is nothing there. FLO-ANN HANSEN Photo Wre holding a table... for you Where memorable evenings are made 7 days a week, impeccable service complements a dining standard of excellence.

"The knowledge we have ac- quired in the last 12 years is useless unless it is shared with he continued. "We may add a line, make an in- dentation or place a stone which will take its place in creation." In closing, he urged grad- uands to take their rightful place in society in the deci- sion-making process, making whatever contribution they could, be it great or small. Master of ceremonies Calvin Kultgen introduced the head table and graduates. Pastor Paul Bortnem gave the blessing.
