Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 15, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta if you ask me... By GREG MclNTYRE What lo do with Iwo leolh that the dentist will pull? At least 1 hope the dentist will pull them. One is a little tooth located top-right, just next to my two fronts. It's crowding out other teeth within an inch either side. The other is right-bottom, a molar-shaped thing just behind a fang. It's doing the seme unpleasant thing to bottom teeth nearby. When I was a junior teen, an orthodontist-friend of tile family offered to help my mother, a poor working lady, fix my crooked teeth by not charging the full going rate for this kind of expensive work. My mother was heart-felt thrilled at the thought of having her little Greg less ugly. Little Greg was mystified, but willing. After two years of metal-banded biters and noc- turnal tusslings with elastic bands, the dentures were straight. But the doctor left a warning. "Sometime when you're grown up, you'll prob- ably need more work because we haven't completely solved the crowding problem." So here I am with two white problematical cril- lers crowding. Now will the dentist pull them out if 1 ask? And what will 1 do with them? The market for teeth under pillows has collapsed around our house since my mother turned me over to my wife. I haven't heard of tooth transplants, although to be honest 1 haven't checked the want ads in the Mayo Clinic newsletter recently. With the wondrous things scientists can do these days, would there be a chance of salvaging calcium and essential whiteness through an elemental ex- tracting process? Probably not. Maybe I'll just let the dentist worry about it. Reaction sought to job training Tlie provincial government is seeking grass roots reaction to its Priority Employment Program. Tlie information it receives may form the basis of whether Hie program is continued or dropped this fall. Representatives of all institu- tions involved in PEP havo (net with provincial govern- ment officials to outline Ilicir views and concerns about tho program.

The government officials did not give any Indication during the meeting about what the fu- ture of the job-training program mighl be.

By RON CALOWliU, Herald Staff Wrilcr Parents who don't keep abr.ast of the changes taking place in education have no idea of what has happened since they went to school. That was the main impres- sion left with Mike Prokok, one of two parents who -becamo principal of Catholic Central High School for three hours dur- ing Education Week. "I was most impressed with Ihe way (he system has chang- ed. They have student coun- cils, better library facilities antt' fantastic ho said. "Any parent who doesn't visit the schools doesn't know what's going on. No parents can com- pare (lie school they went to with the one their child is at- tending." E d Smulders, a feed mil! manager, feels the visit was "very enlightening" but he would like to have had a long- er period of time to look things over and to see, in detail, how the school is run. He also suggested that tho time for Education Week should be changed to Ocloher, "If there are any problems, then they should get to them early in (he he said. Mr. Smulders also feels such events as principal-for-a-day should be held more often. He suggested having small groups of five or six parents visit the schools on a regular basis and look at all its differ- ent functions. Both men said (he counsell- ing facilities at CCHS were the one thing that impressed them most. And both agreed that the principal's job is anything bill easy. "He should be about six peo- said Mr. Prokok. "Its just like being the com- mander of an army has to know everything that is going on." Mr. Smulders said trying to keep (rack of 48 employees and 800 students is a full-time job in itself.
