Campus Corner MARY ANN WILSON holding a "Driver's Education" LElhtiriuge Collegiate Institute course. It consists of 30 hou: This week I have some good of class room instruction a and some bad news. First the bad news: Report cards will be issued March 23. And now the good news: LCI was quite honored Tuesday of last week to have the Alberta education minister Lou Hynd- man as a visitor. Mr. Hynd- man, along with other officials, was here to mark Education week. The party toured the school. Hilite of the visit was a meet- ing between some 200 students from C.C.H., W.C.H. and LCI with the visiting party in the LCI lecture theatre. Some of the topics discussed Included: sex education, school discipline, teacher qualifica- tions, consumer protection and leisure time. I tried to talk to one of tile officials but after pushing my way through' two LCI photographers, three radio reporters and a layer of teach- ers I had forgotten what my question was. Our Rams basketball squad worked very hard all season winning 41 of 31 games. In the final tournament at the U of L they won their first game against Magrath 52-42 and were defeated, by Magrath and C.C.H. In the last two games. The Colts (our "B" boys) set a season's record by winning 10 and dropping just 3 games. We predict in the face of this impressive record that the 74- 75 Rams will be spectacular. On the distaff side, our Clip- per Queens, after a seasons re- cord of 24 wins against 4 lasses, advanced to the provincial bas- ketball playoffs last weekend. They easily won the first two games 55-30 against Bishop Carol 44-38 against Ernest Manning (Calgary) how- ever, the championship eluded them by a slim two points when they dropped the last game 42- 40 to Jasper Place Their playoff efforts were re- warded by a second place trophy donated in honor of their capable coach Miss Irene Karja. February 28th was "Meet the Teachers" night. Parents were invited to come to LCI for an Informal and friendly evening There was a variety of inter esting events taking place in eluding: the LCI band under the direction of Mr. Pokarney The band entertained visitors and teachers with selections from tlieir ever increasing repetoir.

The excellent turnout and in- terest shown in the various Ed- ucation Week events proves that there is more parental in- terest taken in what the schools are doing. Understanding of the prob- lems between parents, teachers and students is half the battle for better education. Remember, education does make a difference.

They will be tracing, as nearly V> as possible, the original route that the RCMP took in 187J-74.

This will take them to Fort Whoop-Up and Fort Macleod to camp overnight and test their equip- ment. Tiie A-V option runs on a rank system. You start off as a sub-constable, and for every 40 hours you put in after school or at noon, you are advanced one rank. Mr. Haig, fearless leader, is o[ course in the top position as commissioner.
