Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 6, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 13 THE IHHWIOGE HERALD Tuesday, March MOUNTIE Continued from Page 15 Mr. Rilcy lists as an example one student who began (lie LCC law enforcement program with a confused attitude toward his future, a scruffy appearance, family problems at home. "He decided law enforcement wasn't for him. But we'd been after him. So he cleaned up, shaved up, changed his attitude and got a job. "His family took hlni and lio's still working. It was the things he learned in law enforcement that helped h 1 m make liis Mr. Ililey says. Pel-son al experiences such as this, Mr. Riley believes, would be impossible if it were not for the assistance given stu- dents by tlie Lethbridge City Police assistance in their studies and in their under- standing of tlie community. Mr. Ililey, Mr. Harrison and their students agree: "The contribution from tlie city police is a public service. Tiiey don't have to do Ibis but they have a very positive at- titude and they're working with young people. "City police interest gives our students more respect for the police, a better attitude to- ward themselves and to their job. It helps (hem clear up in their own minds what they want to do career-wise. "After this experience they either really want out or tliey really want hi." Enforcement students ride with police By WARREN CARACATA Herald Staff Writer A Thursday evening, spent riding around in, a police car may not be.the best way to pass the time, but for law en- forcement students at the Letli- bridge Community CoDegft, it's a valuable part of their pro- grams. "I like It better Uian sitting in a regular classroom where it's all said Larry Hesko, a first-year student in Iho program. Larry was an observer 8n Car 3, the complaint car, for tliree hours. Alllmigh the even- ing was uneventful only four calls were received in that time he did admit it was a learning experience. "I watched the way he (Const. Roger Plato) drives and from listening to him talk I found liirn Larry said. Bach student taking the course spends four evenings at the police station within a two- month period. Twenty-one-year-old Barbara Keay, who entered the course after deciding that secretarial work "wasn't exciting worked out of the juvenile car. "It's all very new and inter- esting. I went out with a de- tective (Ed They have they call floorwalk- ers, you know, and he took me Into a couple of stores and in- troduced mo to two floorwalk- ers. "Tlwre's a real need for youth counselling in law en- forcement.- I think some one my age is going to get further with young people and their she said. Larry liesko is going into po- lice work to "preserve law and and because he feels it will give him personal satis- faction. "You have to be ho said. "One minute you might be writing a ticket and the next going to a bank hold-up." Larry eventually waaits to work for either the B.CMP or the Ontario Provincial Police. While the RCMP has a training program for its recruits, Larry feels tlw more training he gets the better his chances of get- ting accepted into the HCMP. That night the comj-'ri.-ui logged .44 miles, but through- out the three-hour period re- ceived only three calls, and an- other call to pick up a police- man on his beat, Tlie most exciting call came at p.m. when the car was called to the post office to pick up a drunk who was sleeping in the lobby. Even that com- plaint went without incident. JOE DEAK Res.

He was definitely in error when lie said, "April is tlie cruellest month What blink. Who could think of an April time of Easier bun- nies, newly hatched chicks and pussy willows as cruel? That the statement launches a long and complicated poem called "The which has long befuddled English stu- dents, does not redeem him. The cruellest month? What month could be more cruel than February? And don't tell me it is only 28 days short. Have you ever seen days last so LONG in any other month? Fortunately, it's now March, the time of greening is nigh, and we've survived that loath- some month. Now I ask you what has February got to offer? Name me something, just for argu- ment's sake. I admit it does have Feb. 14, Valentine's Day. But what meaning has that event, long milked of its heart- warming customs and oversold in these commercialized times. It really doesn't gladden the soul. Oh yes, and once every four years, February offers us "Leap Year" another out-moded cus- tom which lends itself to all sorts of chauvinistic jokes and jibes about men, hunting fe- males. Just think back in February. Wd anything NICE happen to you during that month? Is it not significant that the worry and stress over income tax reaches its peak in Febru- ary? That your best galoshes do- velop a leak in February? That the in-car heater stops working in Don't even tho minor calamities of life seem more devastating then? Zippers on Wcfdies' parkas always stop working in Febru- ary you get the highest heating and nlectricity bills of the year in February you get depressed the list goes on and on Trivia becomes catastrophic in proportion. Look outside your window in February and what do you see? The tattered remnants of Horse population On June 1, 1972, there were estimated to be horses on farms in Canada, down from a year earlier. The estimates aro based on farmers' replies to the Statis- tics Canada semiannual farm survey and the census count in 1971, together with data from Agriculture Canada. The largest number was in Alberta, in 1971 and in 1972, followed by Ontario with and la 1971 and 19T2 respectively. a filthy snowbank, a dead lawn that looks like even the miraclo of Lazarus would not rejuven- ate it, the unsightly scraps of winter's litter, trees and hedges devoid of leaves, pathetic in their nakedness. And even when the sun shines and the climate is warm, doesn't February seem an aw- fully long way from Spring, tlie traditional time of rebirth, and from Fall's russet beauty and the fresh sparkle of Winter's first snowfall? In short, to put it inelegant- ly, February is a "blah" month. There's no other way to des- cribe It. My dictionary tells me "Feb- ruary" is derived from the Latin, from rula" meaning purification. Ap- parently, an ancient feast of purification was held on Feb. 15. Purification indeed! Tlie an- cient Latins just needed some- thing to make the month moro bearable, so they trumped up an excuse for the feast. The summer months are alive with full blown beauty and activity, the autumn is a time of poignant reminiscence- the winter sparkles and snaps and freezes, spring comes forth in all its glory of gushing streams and bursting buds. Oddly enough, February doesn't seem to fit in anywhere, offering us nothing memorable to impress our consciousness. T.S., old chap, you should have written yet another poem, encompassing the phrase, "February is the misfit month Jordans REMNANT ROLL-END CLEARANCE! ftro copper CBR, red Saturday Night 12'xjr
