ALTAR BOYS - The central act of Christian worship is the Eucharist which requires a table on which to place the bread and the wine. Before the building of churches for worship, when Christianity was still a persecuted sect, the Eucharist wa* celebrated in private houses on tables used as altars and at the tombs of the martyrs. In the catacomb of St. Calixtus a fresco dating from the latter part of the 2nd century shows a three-legged table, similar in form to the tables used for domestic purposes, bearing the eucharlstic elements. At first probably such tables were made of wood but the practice of celebrating the Eucharist on tombs led to the Introduction of stone altars in which martyrs' relics were enclosed. By the 4th century some altar* were made of precious metals. In Roman Catholic churches permanent altars must be made of stone. Two altar boys of the present age are Bernie and Brian Ehnes, twin sons of Mr. and Mrs. Pius Ehnes of Etizikom. They assist the priest in the St. Gabriel Roman Catholic Church.

Major Irrigation Co. 212S 2nd Avenue South PHONES 327-5455, 327.5525 Students break for smoke at Livingstone School By C. A. VVEEKES Herald News Service COWLEY (HNS) - The centralized school board has existed in the Livingstone School area for several years, serving a very useful purpose as a liaison body between the ratepayers and the divisional board. In more recent times there has been a tendency for irate ratepayers to bypass this body despite the fact it was set up to channel complaints more effectively. A few telephone calls were received by members of the centralized board but there was little chance of investigation with so few facts available. Board meetings were usually limited to the one, the annual meeting of the divisional subdivisions. Active members felt not seeded and tended to resign or let their two-year tenure of office lapse. In an effort to stir up action, or dissolution, a well-attended meeting was held recently at Livingstone School. Present were divisional board members including Ken McDowall, chairman, Jerome Robbins and Jack Welch. Centralized board members included Ken Dezell and Mrs. R. Crayford. They held positions of chairman and secretary respectively for the evening. To further attract ratepayers, a number of topics that have been the subject of some controversy in recent times were stated on the invitations to parents and high school students. These included such "problems" as possible abandonment of the centralized board, the recreation room at school, soft drink machine, reading requirements in high school and behavior at school dances. The existence of the centralized board was strongly approved and vacancies were filled by the election of Peter Maloff and Pat Dwyer and the re-election of George Mowatt and Mrs. R. Crayford. Chairman Dezell asked for discussion of the problems and both parents and high school Pancakes, taxes ETZIKOM (HNS) - Many attended the annual pancake supper and bake sale recently at the Etzikom School. It was followed by the ratepayers' meeting. Nine tables played cards. Winners were Mrs. Pius (Thekla) Ehnes, Charlie Tut-tie, Mrs. Mary Yizek and Joe S'tappler. students participated most effectively. The recreation room's use for smoking by senior high school students came in for criticism. Principal Peter Iwasiuk spoke at length on why the decision to allow smoking had been made and stated that it had definitely controlled smoking as well as giving the older pupils of the school a place of their own for relaxation. Misu Susan Dwyer also spoke in defence of the students' use of this room and invited all present to visit the recreation room and see first - hand what it is like. It was suggested there should be a room for non-smokers. It was pointed out the soft drink machine had brought additions to school funds: The parents could control use by limiting the spending money of youngsters attending. Exception was taken to certain books used as literature in high school courses. The choice was defended and the matter was dropped. In regard to dances, there seemed to be no specified incidents so, outside of asking for parent participation, there was no line of action suggested. Some discussion was given to the Lions Club student exchange program that was inaugurated last spring. This will be continued as it has been deemed highly worthwhile. The confidence Mr. Iwasiuk and his staff have in the students' ability to govern themselves was certainly vindicated by the students' participation in the discussion. One can understand why such a small high school has such a fine record for achievement.

Wind up the 102 h.p. Corolla Coupe. Regardless of how beautiful, reliable or well we build the Coupe, some people will always think of it as a toy just because it's small and imported. (Having a name like Toyota doesn't help.) In spite of the fact that the Coupe has a top speed of 105 mph and can leave a lot of big cars standing at the stoplight. There's still a hard core group of big car people who refuse to take us seriously. We tried to gain their respect with our new big engine that runs so quietly, you hardly know it's there. With our power-assisted front disc brakes and our optional automatic transmission. It didn't work. (No self respecting big car gets over 30 miles per gallon.) We even tried to iool them into'thinking we were a big car. We built in fully reclining bucket seats, tinted glass, carpeting, an'-electric rear window defroster, even, a simulated woodgrain steering wheel. '.  But it's no use, our price is a dead give-away. The Coupe sells for only $2299*--with every thingi So now we've given up: All we can'say is/ if you think imported cars are toys, stop by your nearest Toyota dealer and wind upmurs new Corolla Coupe. .'J TOYOT Suggested list price-F.OB.
