By BRENDA KOSAKA Hello from bustling Winston Churchill! Every noon hour it seems that everybody is too busy to go to the cafeteria. If there aren't German classes or intramural sports, there are meetings of various kinds. One maui reason for so many meetings lately is the musical production, "Oklahoma." There are approximalely 150 students involved in the produc t i o n which will be held March 28 through March 31 at the Yates Memorial Centre at 8 p.m. TICKETS March 31 Is students' nigh and all tickets are 51. Ticket for Uie other performances ar with an added feature p Thursday. Thursday is famil night and children under 12 ar Tickets are available at Leister's and from the students at Winston Churchill. A "western week" is in the organizing stage. Some of the events being planned are against the Y's hockey team and they won 4-2. Though some of the students' council members haven't skat- ed for a few years, they have a strong team. Some of the play- ers are Igor Shashkininsky, Fawn McFaughlinick, Kendall Ducenich, Kim Millerenko, and goalie, John Voortlnki. It will be greatly appreciated if you cheer for the team in the football sweaters. MONEY-RAISING Graduation this year will be held on May 18, with the theme, "the long and winding road." The grad committee will be sponsoring projects such as bake sales at both malls, sell- ing chocolate bars, and a bot- tle drive.

VANCOUVER (CP) The spectacle of little children playing litlle per- forming difficult musi- cal works may soon lie matched here by the sight of preschoolers playing piano. It's all because of a simple concept called the Suzuki sys- tem of teaching music, origi- nally developed in Japan but catching on rapidly here. Vancouver has had a Suzuki system of violin instruction for some time, and a piano course has just begun. The basic premise is sim- ple. In the Suzuki system, a student is trained to play by ear rather than by sight. In other wonls, students are en- couraged to play by imitation rather than by first learning to read music. Ruby Snecd, a long time music teacher for the Com- munity Music School of Greater Vancouver, is leach- ing the Suzuki method to her pupils and she says the sys- tem is foolproof. Mrs. Sneed began the course in October and she said after less than two months thai she had four- year-old pupils who could imi- tate music better than eight- ycar-olfls who hr.tl sludicri under more conventional methods. STAIIT KAI1I.V Shinicho Suzuki began the new mclhod ol musical in- f.truction after some studies of how babies learn language. If babies can learn to speak by imitation, he reasoned, then they should be able to pick up another language- music with equal facility if taught in a similar man- ner. The key is lo have a pupil hesr music at as early an as possible. As soon as n child is regis- tered for a Suzuki course, hU parents are given a record to play at home as often as pos- The music becomes ab- sorbed by the aural memory he can fall back on for reference, he plays a musical instrument for the first time. "This listening system is a distinct departure from the traditional teaching meth- said Mrs. Sneed, who spent last summer teaching at the Suzuki school in Matsu- moto, Japan. "Suzuki has called listening the most important training of musical ability and the suc- cess of the system depends to a large extent on this listen- ing and learning by rote in the earliest stages of study." MORE THAN MIMICS Some people believe that tho Suzuki system will only turn out musical mimics, with creative ability, but Mrs. Sneed says that isn't the case. Once a student has master- ed the basics of an instru- ment, she said, he hears recordings of different artists playing the same work so tho pupil's own interpretation and creative ability may be used. "In fact, I heard some Su- zuki piano players in Japan and they had not only a great technical freedom and a great understanding of musical line, but also more subtlety of dynamic? than their counter- parts here." Mrs. Sneed said. "Anrl this ability is some- thing that is in their being. Their playing is not imitative what they have hoard has merely been an influence. "The performances I heard WCTO excellent by any stand- ards. Tho children had learn- ed so well that they were never insecure. They seamed to know wh.it Uicy wanleil in evciy phrase, every meas- ure." Rings }n tilings leading Canadian jewelry designers unveiled their newest ring designs at a Toronto showing recently.

Satellite becomes pollution fighter By TERN HAUGLANT) WASHINGTON (AP) Tell- tale imagery recorded by a sat- ellite 560 miles aljove the earth may be used in a lawsuit against a paper mill accused of dumping waste into Lake Champlain, United Stales space scientists say. The photographs taken by the Earth Resources Technology Satellite (ERTS-1) clearly show pollution from a paper mill on the New York side of the lake, scicnlist A. 0. Lind said Mon- day. He said Vermont Is seeking an order lo prevent further pol- lution. The satellite photographs of the pollution plume in the lake have been turned over to Vermont's a Homey-general for possible introduction into the lawsuit now under way, Lind said. Other KRTS photographs have shown that acid wastes are being dumped into tho ocean off New York harbor "a rew miles closer lo Jones Beach ih'an should be the scientists said at a government- spo.iiored symposium. This also is a matter for pos- sible future litigation, they snid in reporting on usage of ERTS data. DESCRIBED TO MEETlNIt The pictures and data, as de- scribed tit the opening of a four- day National Aeronautics and Space Administration sym- posium in suburban New Car- rollton, Mtl., also showed that: railway track that culs through Utah's Great Salt Lake, in effect, has divided (hat lake into two bodies of water, with the area to the north shown.? up red in salellitc imagery, and that to the soulh blue. The sat- ellite results indicated that ad- ditional culverts should be cut through tho rail bed to provide circulation and prevent further deterioration of the lake's min- eral resources and brine shrimp. ;
