The Law Office of MARTIN HOYT Has Been Moved To 335 10th Street S., Lethbridge (YOUNG, PARKYN McNABB BUILDING) Our New Telephone Number Is 328-9211 with a maximum penalty of 10 years. Sentence Suspended Passing of sentence was sus- pended for two years when Marie Christiansen of Watcrtcn Lakes appeared in magistrate's court Friday for sentencing on a charge of pos- session of marijuana ar.d STP. Ths youth was also placed on probation for a two year pe- ricd. The accused and three other youths were arrested Dec. 5 in joint KC.MP-city police raid on a farmhouse on the outskirts of Lcthbridge. All four were originally charged with possession of SIP for trafficking and posses- sion of marijuana for traffick- ing. These charges were later changed to charges of posses- sion of STP and possession of marijuana. Magistrate Lloyd Hudson in suspending the sentence said he was impressed with the way Miss Christiansen conducted herself and the improvement in her appearance since be had fast seen her in court. Besides the two year sus- pended sentence anil proba- tion, Miss Christiansen must not associate with known drug users and traffickers as laid clown by the narcotics ar.d food ar.d drug acts, or go to places By MARGARET LUCKHURST J don't think kills today have as much fun as they once had even a decade ago, and certainly not nearly as much as I had when I was growing up. This personal observation lias become more ap- parent the last few springs when, as soon as the snow melts adults expect kids to swarm outdoors, taking over the sidewalks with skipping ropes and bags of marbles. For generations, this lemming-like pattern of children has been as much a part of the spring panorama as returning birds and budding lilacs. It was welcomed by parents who were glad to get the kids outdoors again after the winter. Also, these recurring signs reminded us of more carefree days that had once been ours. How well I remember rushing through chores so I could get out with the gang. Slap went the kindling into the wopdbox, clatter went the dishes, squawk went the chickens as they got hailed with feed. Then out with the length of rope, and an hour's skipping before dark. You could hear us chanting our skipping song for half a mile 'Here comes teach- er with a red hot what 1 got in 'rith- metic.' When we tired of this, we'd finish off the evening wilh a communal game of hide-and-seek. But where are all the kids today? Have we regimented them to the point where they can't feel free to spend some time on their just being kids? It would seem so. The other evening as I passed a school ground I stopped to watch a small-boy ball game in pro- gress. From time to time some minor infraction ol their own 'instant' rules set up a violent argument which eventually resolved itself. However, before long a couple of well-meaning dads joined the group determined to teach them how to play the game 'right'. Needless lo say, their intrusion, politely accepted at first, was gradually a dampening influence, and one by one the boys drifted off. Finally, the kid with the hat went home. End of game. Part of the problem is restrictive urban space. We don't like children playing on busy streets; local play lots are becoming scarce, and people protest against kids running across lawns in games of 'cheese it' and 'giant steps'. So there is nowhere to skip or play marbles. There are school grounds of course, and a few parks, but these sometimes are too distant for a fun, pick-up-game after supper. Flay, then, becomes a matter of joining something-or-other where it is per- formed in orderly, well-managed .ashion. Even toys are designed to instruct and educate, with spare hours dedicated to intellectual enlighten- ment. Cliildren have had too much freedom, we say. Cut what type of freedom? They've been spocked, spoiled, schooled and supervised such authori- tarian wisdom since they were born that they are losing their ability to amuse themselves. Their aged youfhfulness, with its amused cloak of maturity achieved through TV, rebellion, and drugs, shocks us. Yet who is to blame? We've robbed them of their heritage of just being young. ____ Cancer Drive Plans Made Teen Clefs Invited To Sing At Expo 70 Tlie 18-voke Teen Clefs have jeen invited to appev July 1- at Expo 70 in Osaka, Japan. all-girl choir, directed by jelhbridge registered music cacher Anne Campbell, was nitially invited by Expo offi- cials to give two performances aily May 27-June 3.
