Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 25, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 TMI IETHSRIOGE HERAID Solurdoy, Mcmli 25, amily life by MAUREEN JAMIESON f 'JpHAT first fine taste of spring gale and all was beautiful, wasn't it? But unfortunately, as the snow blew away from our front yard, the skelton in my gardening closet rose to haunt me tfie mortal remains of last summer's marigolds came to light, to remind me that I would soon be girding up my un-green thumb to do bailie with the flower bed once again. I'd never actually hart a confrontation with a flower bed before we came to Lethbridge. We'd been apartment dwellers, and although I knew a dandelion when 1 saw one, sphagnum was one of life's little mysteries to me. and the only seeds 1 could recog- nize on sight were the sunflowers I found in the boys' pockets on washday. I wasn't a novice, exactly, since I'd helped the boys to grown wheat on wet collon batting, and raised three onions in milk bottles. So I wasn't really prepared for Hie way disaster followed disaster when I moved on up to gardens. In fact, I was getting downright depressed until some- body introduced me to a packet of marigold seeds. That summer, marigolds gushed forth like sand pouring out of a dirty sneaker; and the more I pick- ed, the more they bloomed. Beautiful! Heady with success, I became very blase about marigolds; and next planting season, after poring over piles of technicolor catalogues, I settled on a giddy selection of slocks, pansies. chrysanthemums, carnations and a lot of other lliings that I can't even spell. I weeded, watered, fertilized, spoke encouraging- ly to the seeds, and threatened io divorce the entire family if they didn't keep their big flat feet off that flower bed. As the little green whiskers began to shoot up through the earth, I glowed with 'maternal pride. But as they grew larger, it became increasingly ob- vious that everything was coming up marigolds, in spite of what was printed on the seed packets. Unfeeling friends made ribald comments, but I bore all their nasty little jokes with a brave, wistful smile which masked an iron determination that come what may, those blankety-blank marigolds were go- ing to get their blankety-blank come-uppancc. So on the first fall day I sent out the shock troops to vanquish the enemy. Two hefty teenagers invited all their friends to hoe, dig, stomp and play football on the flower bed. Next, my mother-in-law, no mean gardener her- self, charged in witli a shovel, "just to make sure." Then, armed with the same shovel, and a muscu- lar husband. I churned up the earth once again "just to make certain." Last summer, victory seemed within my grasp. A few little plants from the sweetpea packet popped up, but alas, they were soon cut down in their youth- ful innocence by an over enthusiastic lawn mower. After the sweetpea fiasco, a forest of pushy mar- igolds once more spread themselves over the front of the house, and sadly I accepted defeat. If you ask me, martians, atom bombs and crim- inals are strictly small potatoes it's marigolds that are taking over the world! F.O.E. BiNGO TONIGHT EAGLES HALl Wn Ave. A and 13lh St. N.

He added that so far as was known these were the first such :ransplants anyw here in the world. The operations took place 10, and month1; ago. In each case, one defective ovary was replaced. The donors were young women related to the patients, Rothberg said. All the patients were in good alUi, with their new ovaries functioning properly, although none had yet attempted to be- come pregnant.

More than principals converged on Anaheim, Califor- cn March 17 to take ra the six-day program of lectures, discussions and visits. Mr. Sauer chose to visit Ihc tare m o n t and Westminster High Schools. Claremont, he said, was noted 'or its flexible schedule opera- ion, and he bad the opportun- ity t o speak to students and. teachers. "I li nd a lot of t he ih ings we're doing here in Letlibriclge and in this school in particular, are just as he said. In fact our methods of regis- tration "flabbergasted" them, particularly in the wide range of student choices available, said Mr. Sauer. "They don't have the varia- bility our department gives us. They talk about flexibility, bu; no student has more than 30 per cent of free time." Free time, he explained, cov- ers independent stud y, library work and just plain free tune. "We don't make a fuss about independent study, as it is done in the class all the time it's part of our teacher student re- lationship within the class he said. "We've been doing it here without getting aU fired-up about it across the nation." "Their schools didn't have any advantage over us at all. In fact, they don't allow because of state laws, he said, The non fail grades, acclaim- ed at the conference as a n important development, are ac- tually similar to the non-graded system now operating here, he said. "Our system here is holding its own, and is ahead in many aspects." Major credit must be given to staff and board members and parents in Lethbridge. Mr. Sauer said, 4lfcr the support given this kind of educational system." "I just hope they continue to "Generally speaking and this is a sweeping statement. from contact made with students in the schools I visited, I wculd say our students are more mature and more articu- late maybe more informed." However Mr. Sauer said he was partic u 1 a r 1 y impressed with a program which was pre- sented as a guide to students nuking career decisions, 1 Tndc-r the program, an all- out effort was made to contact as many students as possible, and once a week, a person was invited into the school to talk- rot just about a particular ca- reer like lumberjack but about the entire lumbar indus- try and. related trades. "Every student gets the op- portunity to get in depth in- formation in the various fields." He said he felt that if an- career fair is held at LCE, this type of extension of the subjects offered would be of great value to the students. Mr. Saiier said he had man- aged "to kill three birds with one at the conference and that it bas been worthwhile as far as lime and money were concerned. "It might have taken 10 to 12 years to pick up the informa- tion" be received from speakers wlw were considered foremost in thsir field. He also had the opportunity of speaking to teachers from all across Canada and the U.S., he said; and finally, he had picked up valuable information from seeing actual schools in opera- tion.
