Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 26, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta If - THI UTHBMDOI HERALD - Friday, March 9ft, 1971 Danger recognized even by children New toy banned in schoolgrounds By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor The newest toy to appear in city stores has already been banned on a number of city school playgrounds due to risk of danger to students. Known as clackers or "ka-bongers," the toy consists of two hard plastic or resin balls connected to a string or cord. The balls are swung together by children, with a flip of the wrist producing a clac king sound. � School principals have been concerned over the possibility of a child being hit on the head with the swinging ball. At least one local department store has discontinued sales of the toy after a store official saw the possibility of danger. One store manager said the first shipment received by the store was sent back after a few shattered toys were returned. The next shipment ordered LEISTER'S MUSIC LTD. Campus Corner By SIMON RUB-DELL -University of British Columbia pERHAPS a college educa-tion was once the key to instant education but that is no longer the case. Today there are so many universities and therefore so many university graduates with their degrees that the value of each degree as far as getting a job is concerned has decreased considerably in the past few years. The problem is not due to degrees being granted too easily and so of not such a high standard as in the past but rather that our system of mass education is beginning to catch up with us. There are now many more opportunities for the average person to reach the graduate level of university now that the imiversities cannot help but grant more. The mam problem is that there are simply not enough jobs which require an extensive education to absorb the flow of 11 these graduates. Many students unwittingly contribute to this situation by studying subjects for the sole purpose of teaching the same to others who will continue in the same steps. This forms a vicious circle which works quite well until there are more teachers available than are needed as is the case in some fields at the moment. This is the situation faced by graduates in philosophy, classical studies, and even English where even the doc-trate is not immune. An example of this is the fact that over two hundred classical studies doctrates were competing for only eight positions last year in Canada. One must note however that this is not faced by arts students' only. Last year there were over one thousand applicants for only fifty graduate jobs in chemistry at the University of British Columbia. Obviously a number of each year's disappointed applicants will be added to the next year's group, thus only serving to aggravate the situation. If one does get a job after a university education, however, it is usually higher paid than what be might normally undertake. This is the great incentive no matter how false it may appear now. Thus more and more people are getting their degrees and doing higher and higher graduate work m order to have a better chance of getting a good job somewhere so that a bachelor's degree in most fields is almost of no account what-soever. What will all this lead to? Some feel that the only thing to be done is to carry specialization to its extreme and thus enter the great age of the occupational school. This will lead into its own problems later on and would certainly make education a very cut an i dried matter indeed. Learning is all very well but one has t live somehow. It seems th; t much education will have to h sacrificed to this end in the fi ture for although learning can be exciting it soon looses i|-Can anyone see a solution? appeal when one is bungr] * * * (The views voiced In th� above column do not necessarily concur with eitbei those of The Herald or Leister's, but are a reflectioi of the student opinion.) r-----------�--.

A department store still selling the toy also returned a shipment after 10 or 12 toys were returned, but is now carrying a new line. No complaints have as yet been received about this new type. A third department store is no longer selling the toy after receiving orders from its head office to remove them from toy counters. In a survey, of IS elementary schools conducted this week, only two principals were still allowing the toy on the. school playground. Two principals said none-had been noticed on the playground, but they would not be allowed if any did show up. It was the children themselves in several schools who brought up the possibility of danger. One principal said the room representatives had suggested that the toy could be dangerous, which made it easier to place a ban on it. In another school, "deliberate swings" with the,balls caused the principal to impose  ban. In several other schools, balls or any missile throwing, is forbidden on the playground unless under supervised sport, so the toy fell immediately into this category. No injuries other than bruises mostly self - -inflicted were reported in the survey. There! are several types of the toy. One set, which has the string imbedded into the ball, has teen rated dangerous since the ball tends to shatter'. Reports from the U.S. indicate that the Food and Drug administration may place a ban on the toy due to potential of danger. V A spokesman for the department store still selling the toy said the line they are selling is plastic, not as heavy as the other type and the string is not imbedded in the ball but goes all the way through. The toy has been banned in all Edmonton schools and several Calgary schools.

Monica Turner, delegate from Ontario to the conference held this week, moved that a special committee be set up at the Edmonton conference to deal with the question of native women retaining treaty rights when or after marrying off the reserve. The motion was passed, and turned over to the Voice of Al- Jh% and out of t own Tau Chapter, Beta Sigma Phi held a Monte Carlo night at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence Hermanutz. Guests included Mr. and Mrs. Gordon Taylor, Mr. and Mrs. Stuart Park, Mr. and Mrs. Jerry Zezulka, Mr. and Mrs. Wayne Pearson, and Mr. and Mrs. Larry Tucker. berta Native Women's Society until such time as a national association could be formed to deal with the issue. At present, when a treaty-Indian woman marries a non-treaty man, she automatically loses her treaty number; status, and rights, whereas if a treaty-Indian man marries a non-treaty woman, be retains his treaty number, and his wife gains treaty-ship. The native women are asking that this be changed so that they may retain their treaty rights regardless of marriage or marital status.
