Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 26, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta it THE lETHERlBGE KERAIO March W1 recognized even by children Neiv 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 Known as clackers or ka the toy consists of two hard plastic or resin balls connected to a string or The ball are swung together by with a flip of the wrist producing a clacking School principals have been concerned over the possibility I of a child being hit on the head with the swinging At least one local department store has discontinued sales of the toy after a store official saw the possibility of One store manager said the first shipment received by the store was sent bark after a few shattered toys were The next shipment ordered LEISTERS MUSIC Campus Corner Bv SIMON RUDDELL I however that this is not faced J nnlv 1 VfSr University of British Columbia TERHAPS a college educa tion was once the key to instant education but that is no longer the Today there by arts students Last year there were over one thousand applicants for only fifty grad uate jobs in chemistry at the University of British Obviously a number of each from a different manufacturer was but it is not planned to reorder A department store still sell ing the toy also returned a ship ment after 10 or 12 toys were but is now canying a new No complaints have as yet been received about thi new A third department store is no longer selling the toy after receiving orders from its head office to remove them from toy In a survey of 15 elementary schools conducted this only two principals were still allowing the toy on the school Two principals said nonehail been noticed on the but they would not be allowed if any did show ft was the children them selves in several schools who brought up the possibility of One principal said the room representatives hsd suggested that the toy could be danger which made it easier to place a ban on In another deliber ate swings wlin me balls caus ed the principal to impose a In several other balls or any missile is forbidden on the playground unless under supervised so the toy fell immediately into this No injuries other than bruises mostly self inflicted were re ported in the There are several types OL the One which has the string imbedded into the ball has been rated as dangerous since the ball tends to shatter Reports from the indicate that the Food and Drug admin istration may place a ban on the toy due to potential of dan A spokesman for the depart ment store still selling the ten I said the line they are selling is not as heavy as th other type and the string is no imbedded in the ball but goe all the way The toy has been banned i all Edmonton schools and sc eral Calgary er uw cast iuua u so many universities and years disappointed applicants J trt tho npvt vpar s therefore so many university graduates with their degrees that the value of each degree as far as getting a job is con cerned has decreased consider ably in the past few 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 There are now many more opportunities for the average person to reach the graduate level of university now that the universities cannot help but grant The main problem is that there are simply not enough jobs which require an extensive education to absorb the flow of all these Many stu dents unwittingly contribute to this situation by studying sub jects for the sole purpose of teaching the same to others who will continue in the same This forms a vicious cir cle which works quite wel until there are more available than are needed as is the case in some fields at th This is the situatioi faced by graduates in philoso classical and even English where even the doc trate is not An example of this is the fac that over two hundred classica studies doctrates were compel ing for only eight positions las year in One must not be added to the years thus only serving to ag ravate the If one does get a job after a university is usually higher paid than vhat he might normally under This is the great incentive no matter how false it may ap ear Thus more and more are getting their degrees and doing higher and higher graduate work in order to have a better chance of getting a ood job somewhere so that a achelors degree in most fields is almost of no account what What will all this lead to Some feel that the only thing o be done is to carry special ization to its extreme and thus enter the great age of the oc cupational This will lead into its own problems later on and would certainly make education a very cut and dried matter Learning is all very well but one has to live It seems that much education will have to be sacrificed to this end in the fu ture for although learning can be exciting it soon looses its Can anyone see a solution appeal when one is The views voiced In the above colnmn do not neces sarily concur with either those of The Herald or Lei but are a reflection of the student TOP TWELVE 45 MAIL ORDERS Tick off tho selection you want and send to Youll receive your records for only SI Please Add 15c Postage on Orders and SUPER
