Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 7, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 10-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, Marcn 7, MDCMT Herald- Youth Field trips motivate students' interest To help overcome some of the communication barriers between the classroom and the outside world, a new program has been developed at Assumption School. Through the program, elementary students participate in numerous field trips into the community so they can see for themselves "the relation between working and school." Principal of Assumption- School, G. A. Heck, says the main purpose of the program is to broaden the scope of stimulating activities and materials and have the students interpret their experiences through such methods as writing, talking, Hamilton Hornets upset by Tigers New beaver program maintains membership learning the trade Ten-year-old Robert Windrum sits back in his chair, really fitting the role of superintendent. Robert, a grade 5 student at Senator Buchanan is the winner of the Education Week essay contest for the Lethbridge School District. As winner, he became superintendent- for-a-day. His essay, entitled My Teacher, was selected to enter zone finals and was in competition with other students across the province. By KEVIN HARTLEY The Hamilton Hornets officially ended their 1974 season last week in defeat when the Paterson Tigers roared on to a 24-18 victory. The Hornets were behind throughout the entire game. Paterson spilled blood first as they sprung an early 6-2 first quarter lead and extended it to 14-7 at half-time. The Tigers still poured it on in the third quarter to go into the last six minutes of play holding a convincing 20-9 lead. The fourth quarter changed hands as Hamilton scored eight of their nine points in the last two minutes but it wasn't enough. The game ended in favor of the Tigers. TORONTO (CP) If you hear a-five-year-old promising to "love God and take care of the world" then you'll know the Boy Scouts of Canada are fighting back against their declining membership-with a program to reach five-to seven-year-olds called beavers. The beaver program has its tail-slapping rituals and its curled finger salute that one leader described as a "cub with arthritis" but what really countsKfttNthe movement is "swimming up to If enough Beavers make the transitioliittliai, it" will be the beginning of an upward progression through cubs, scouts, venturer to rovers and beyond to adult leadership in the scout movement. The beaver program is ex- perimental. It started in Winnipeg in 1971 and by December, 1973, there were colonies all across Canada with about beavers. The growth has been closely controlled because the scout leadership is becoming cautious in its search for answers for the apparent resistance to scouting that seems to have been growing since 1968. Two years ago the greater Toronto region of the Boy Scouts of Canada set up a committee to try to find reasons for the decline and make some suggestions for reversing it. This week, at-the region's annual meeting the report was issued. It says that in 1968 it looked as though the rigidities and somewhat militaristic struc- tures were turning young people off. So the system was reshaped, in many ways along the lines of the school system, the report says. Words like "peer groups" and "free choice" began turning up in schouting manuals. But apparently work. it did not Andy O'Brien Read his report cm how the London Lions are reviving Britain's interest in hockey. This Saturday in Weekend Magazine.

(CP) Paul Selick. 23. is working on his doctorate degree in mathematics at Princeton University in the United States and has little time to play chess these days. But he maintains his interest in the- game and is the sixth-ranked Canadian. And he said in a visit home here he may compete in international tournaments when his studies have been completed. "I haven't played in tournaments since the Canadian closed championships in 1972.1 was tied for sixth out of 18 players." he said. in his competitive career he has held the Maritime and New Brunswick chess titles and now has a Canadian master rating of is average. His rate in the U.S. is slightly lower. "Now. I'm not playing all that much. I follow what's happening in international championships but I haven't as much time because I'm studying harder. "I achieved one goal in the Canadian championships. The farther you go along the harder it is to make progress." he said. International competition? Yes. he'd like that. "I'd start to learn more again. Then 1 would start to enjoy it again." Paul Selick wants strong competiljon when he plays chess. That way he gets to learn from his opponent, and most of it is hard work. "To start with, you have to have talent. There are certain things you have to pick up naturally... whether you're good after that depends on how much study you put into it. Most who take up the game have potential but there are very few all that interested. Another important requirement is physical stamina, he said. Tournaments are "very exhausting five hours at a time in which each player has to make 40 moves. The last time. I played 17 days in a Chess is becoming more popular, he said. The Bobby Fischer-Boris Spassky match in the summer of 1972 attracted a lot of attention. "I think it has continued although its been only a short time. It's really hard to tell any permanent effects. One of the big things is the increase in prize money. More professionals were brought in by Fischer, and now there are sponsors in the U.S." During his visit here. Selick played 30 games at one time with players from across the province. But that was nothing really new for hini. He's been winning chess tournaments since he was 12 years old Mike Sheen dazzled the Hornets as he swished 12 points while Glade Roberts and Alex Gepenairas each- netted four. For the Hornets, rookie Chu .Kenly Jang netted eight points, Darrell Steed, five and Bruce Olsen four. The game left the Hornets in third place, holding a 2-4 win record. Paterson is in first place with the Catholic Central Saints in second. The only team to finish with no victories is the Wilson Warlords. Play-offs will be held Saturday in the Winston Churchill auditorium, with the Paterson Tigers jumping off against Wilson. The game left the Hornets in third place, holding a 24 win record.

Meanwhile in the girls' action, the Halos defeated the Paterson Tigresses by a score of 32-19. Both teams played an excellent first half, leaving the floor with a score of 16-12 in favor of the Halos. Lisa Nirk scored 12 points and Debbie Wakelin, eight. The Halos are in first place with a 5-1 win loss record. Playoffs for the girls are at Winston Churchill with the Halos hitting it off with the Catholic Central Cheetahs. drawing or presenting slides. These experiences could serve as a stepping stone in developing language reading communication skills. The Grade 6 class recently spent half a day at a local department store. Each student was assigned to a specific department and did the same work as the clerks tagging, selling and setting up displays. In this way, students can get a real introduction and first-hand experience into this kind of work, Mr. Heck says. The field trip was evaluated by staff people at the stores. Evaluators were encouraged by the project and would "like to see more of this kind of thing." The class has also made a trip to the telvision station to note certain aspects of local production, particularly speech arts articulation, tone and voice. The Grade 4 class has toured the water treatment plant, Grade 1 visited Frathe's Flower Shop, Grade 3 attended a Japanese Cultural display at the Bowman Arts Centre, and the Grade 5s will tour Ag Expo. "We try to identify specific development needs of the students before arranging field trips and guest he says. The theme of Grade 2 social studies is community life, so it's important for students to observe certain careers. The class toured L-Mart, an ideal way to introduce long distance trucking, refrigeration, store managing, and product inventory. They noted how everybody depends on each other to keep things going. Mr. Heck says the students have always taken field trips but never to this extent. He feels it is important to give students concrete experiences to talk about. The three-year project, which only involves elementary students, was accepted by the department of education and is funded by the Educational .Opportunities Fund. "We only got word in January that the project was approved and already students have benefited from eight field trips." said Mr. Heck. LEISTER'S MUSIC LTD. Campus Corner By CINDY OKART Kate Andrews School, Coaldale Popular music is no longer quiet with soft, soothing tones. Most of it is strong and vibrant with an ear-shattering blare. Music should have some rhythm and meaningful words. No longer can people go to a modern concert and expect to hear music that will relax them. Most concerts do exactly the opposite. By the time the music ends, your ears are ringing so much that for quite a while they are unable to adjust to normal sounds. Some of the rock music can turn a naturally calm person into someone with nerves as raw as unprepared ground beef. The musicians themselves probably become quite deaf and nervous after a few concerts- It is mostly adults who are not attracted to modern music. They shudder at the mere fact of having to pick their children up from a sock hop. This is partly because, when they were younger, they were not subjected to music which was nearly as enthusiastic. In their time, music was soft and meaningful, quite a contrast to the loud pounding notes produced from different instruments now. It is quite hard to keep the music mania under control. Some people that come to a concert become so involved they begin screaming and singing boisterously, disturbing the people around them. The fans can become so wild they tear up to the stage trying to reach the performers. When they are able to touch or get a piece of the musicians clothing, the fans nearly melt TAPES (IJW.MAUOlY.MEMOIlEX) Quality blank recording tapes sizes, lengths, and prices 8 track, cassette, reel-to-reel 1OO% replacement warranty Also an excellent stock of tape carrying cases, cords, plugs, cleaners, etc. FUPTAPEw 128 LEISTER'S MUSIC LTD.
